I have my kids albums done to when they came home from the hospital and then picked back up and did some of their school pages.

I was thinking of trimming my creative memories pages to fit into 12x12 page protectors and somehow mingle them with project life pages.

What do you think????

I am doing PL and regualar 12x12 layouts. I place the layouts with the week they were done. I really like the way it looks

I am doing that but I am only doing monthly layouts. I have just spent the evening doing the January layout and to be honest it was exhausting but I am glad it is using up lots of bits and pieces and scraps. I am putting ephemera between the layouts too newspaper cuttings etc and using a multitude of different page protectors. I am trying to not inflict too many rules on myself and if there are more spreads sometimes then that's fine. Most importantly I don't want to get behind or I will give up

I think a few people are doing that. I intend to, but I don't scrap all that often, so haven't started yet.

I don't technically do PL (yet), but I use the page protectors and regular 12x12 layouts. I love mixing it up and I love the simplicity of PL, but I also love getting more creative so I add 12x12 layouts. I might a few examples in my gallery. Lailani's first year Album

I dont do PL but I am going to start putting PL type pages in with my regular 12x12 scrapped photos because I just have too many pictures I want to get in books.

Go for it! I've combined my PL pages with my other layouts and just have some monthly dividers in my albums. I've been doing this for about a year now and it combines the best of both worlds for me.

I haven't done it yet but I do plan on a mix-it-up style of album soon because I I very much like the idea and have plenty of page , protectors, scrap supplies and need to use that stuff up.

I did it for my vacation album and my son's baby album. I love it! In my PL album I have done 6x12 page inserts.

I merge my 12x12 layouts in with my project life. I do it weekly and just stick them in the week of the photo. If It is a 1 page lo i just pit a pretty piece of cardstock on the other side or another lo.
