I'm looking for some good websites, blogs, anything that explains this project life thing. A really simple not complicated one. Anyone?

Search for Cathy Zielske. She was on the pL design team and posted weekly on her blog.
I took Becky's class at big picture for $100 and got more out of her free blog than the class.
Also, if you go on Pinterest, you can search for all kinds of designs and ideas.
Good luck.

Beckyhiggins.com she has a video on the first page that explains
PL.
In a nut shell it is using divided page protectors and preprinted cards to simplify scrapbooking. It started as a way to create an album for the photography project of taking a picture a day. Lots of people still use the PL products for a picture a day or documenting daily life by week or month. But you can use the products in what ever way works for you.

I'm gonna follow this. I posted a couple of days ago about being over scrapbooking and I've thought about doing PL instead so I can at least still use my stuff. It seems a lot simpler, I'm still a little confused about it though.


Do they sell PL stuff at Hobby Lobby, or Target?

Well didn't Becky Higgins originate the concept? I'd go over to her blog as she has all the info on her site.

WImomma, Project Life is a brand name but also a concept. Becky Higgins came up with the idea and owns the "PL" name. She is partnering with American Crafts to offer the product in retail stores next year. So no

However, WRMK makes divided page protectors nd several brands make journaling/filler cards that would work.

Definitely watch the video on the first page of Becky Higgins website. It's a brief but excellent description of Project Life.

Okay, I checked it out. One question, are there protectors that fit instagram pictures? I saw they had small packs of protectors for different layouts and sizes, I wasn't sure if that size picture fit in any of them though.

Sorry for the thread jack Has2005

No problem! Hijack away. Because chances are the questions you are asking are ones I would eventually have.

Cathy Zielske sells some templates for PS that work well with Instagram photos. There is a place to add a title or a tiny bit of journaling then you print it out at 3x4 or 4x6.

There are also page protectors divided for coins. They are usually 8.5 x 11 but that works well as an insert between two 12x12 pages in my opinion. These pockets are 2x2. I haven't purchased any so I am not recommending this brand specifically, but as an example: Amazon coin page protectors

Another option is to print them at 4x4 which is the "native" size, then adhere them to a 4x6 piece of patterned paper with or without a bit of journaling or a date stamp or something in the extra space.

The Project Life Design J page protectors are for Instagram photos.

This will be my first year doing PL too. I am hoping I can stick to it for the whole year. I did 365 days of pictures a couple of years ago and around April I got tired of it, but I kept going. It was just hard to remember to take a picture of something every day. I decided to do PL on as a weekly review of what my family did. I know it will be hard since we don't do much especially with all my kids in school.

Here is a blog post from Becky Higgins that she posted on her site a few weeks ago. It's called 'Advice for Project Life Newbies". This should be a great help http://www.beckyhiggins.com/blog/2012/11/advice-for-project-life-newbies/

Sn@p by Simple Stories will have a page protector design for Instagram but it's not available until April/May. See below, bottom right:
