I am TORN between repeating with my PL Cobalt AND with just going with a regular WRMK album.

(I make my own insides.)

So - just curious - what are you doing? Same album as '12? Different PL album? Switching to WRMK or AC??

WRMK Classic Leather 12x12 in Aqua. Different than 2012 which I am using an AC 12x12 album with an aqua spine. I have decided aqua is my PL album color from now on

This is my first year of PL. I did a Project 12 last year with a WRMK album in Kiwi. Using WRMK again for 2013 PL but I can't decide if I want to stay consistent with the green or use the purdy aqua WRMKs I got at Target

Definitely a WRMK D-ring album, but I'm still undecided on color.

I have an orange soda one for this year, but I need to get a 2nd one, and can't decide if I want to get another orange, or mix it up. I really love the bright colors, but I've already got red and aqua for different albums. I'm considering the bright green (not the kiwi - it's more grass green).

This will be my third year for project life. Ive always done 12x12 and each year is 2 books. I'm thinking of scaling it back and printing wallets this year for my photos and using 6x12..... Or 8 1/2 by 11. Can't decide! I wish there were more page style options for those sizes. I need it to still fit the 3x4 cards.

Thinking about going with the WRMK Orange 12x12. I'm also probably going to use a lot of Cathy Zielske's stuff from Designer Digitals. But I am tempted by the Seafoam kit from Becky Higgins. I used the turquoise kit for 2012. I'm pretty much undecided at the moment.

I haven't decided yet. This year I had two brown 12x12 AC albums that I used. I'm not sure what I'm doing for next year. I've actually considered the Snap albums and page protectors for 2013. I might be able to stay current if I go smaller. I have a vacation in 12 days (YAY!!!) and I think I'll be able to finish 2012 then see where to go from there.

Doodlebug gals - what page protectors are you using?

For my regular everyday "Library of Memories", I already use Buttercup, Kiwi, Real Red, Cobalt Blue and Aqua, with albums for the boys at Chocolate and Black. So, I am running out of workable colors with WRMK.

I do like the BH Seafoam album - but what price are those selling for? Which makes me consider the Doodlebug Bubble Blue...

Do the BH page protectors FIT in the Doodlebug??

Gah. Being anti-establishment sometimes is so wearying!

I use my PL as a home for regular layouts too... so mine have stayed Basic Black... That seafoam blue is cute though. I know I will be buying the digi cards and embellishments to spice up my albums.

After three years of doing Project Life and a photo a day with Becky's supplies each year, I am switching to Sn@p and doing one photo and one journaling box per week.

I have signed up for the SC project life kits. So I have my eye on an Amy Tange camera album. I just love all those little cameras. Planning to order the small variety pack of page protectors. And some BH journaling cards.
This is my first time doing PL so besides old patterned paper I really have no stash. Can't wait to get started in 2013!!!!!

I used a purple 3ring album I found at HL for this year. For 2013 I'm going to stick with purple (Purple Project Life) but use the WRMK since it's better quality than the "generic" one I got

I am going to get a WRMK album, but haven't settled on a color. Probably black. I am boring about my albums, and getting a Clementine PL album this year about killed me.

Penny, I will probably choose the most fun thing or the thing that most tells about our week. Some weeks are pretty unexciting...then it is photos of the kitties!

I am going with the Clementine album. I sooo wanted the Cherry Blossom one but it was still unavailable and I did not want to cancel pl again due to its unavailability! As for all of the core kits and cards, I mixed and matched all the goodies

WRMK album- color still to be determined and Sn@p paper line for core kit. I use a variety of protectors from BH and WRMK. Will probably again do a monthly approach.

I'm totally struggling with this right now. I feel that the 12x12 is just too big, but the 6x8 is too small. I thought about doing 8.5 x 11, but don't want to have baseball card protectors as my main page design (I'd miss my 4x6 spaces too much).

Has anyone thought about using the Russell + Hazel Signature 3-Ring Binder? It's 10.75 x 12 and 1.75" thick. Those pages could make nice "sandwich" pages for your weekly spread, allowing you to then use most of the PL inserts (4x12, 6x12, etc.), baseball card inserts, 6x8 inserts, etc.

I'm thinking this may be a good solution, yes?

Y'all bring up a good point - there is a basic white isn't there?? Maybe that is the one for me. That, or the orange WRMK window album. Or the lemon WRMK window album.

See - I NEED to decide!

I did Project 365 in 2009 and got burned out. I am wanting to give Project Life a try in 2013. I have been thinking of how I am going to do my album and trying to decide. I do love the WRMK 3 ring binders and might end up getting that one. I am unsure of what color!

I used two PL Amber albums in 2011, two WRMK Kiwi albums in 2012 and am thinking of WRMK Buttercup albums for 2013. I like being able to identify the years that go together by seeing two colors side by side.

Sorry I'm late but I just couldn't decide whether or not to take on PL 2013 and the type/color of album. I've been doing the DD so I think I can handle PL for the first time. I was at J's yesterday and found a beautiful WRMK Designer Album in Spa Fresh. I loved it even more because I used a 50% off coupon!!
