Basically you are snapping photos of your daily life, slipping them into pocket page protectors and journaling a few words. Easy documentation of your life. You can make it as simple or ornate as you want, which you can see a wide variety in the 2Peas gallery and on Becky's site.

I am mixing up different types of pages (some PL style with 12x12, etc). I have a lot of photos to scrap and like that I can get them done quickly and they still look cute. I've already collected way too many sets, along with other brands. Oops

^^^that it is a set of products made to make memory keeping simpler. There are no rules on how to use the products. You can use them for everyday, event, and theme scrapping. Or what ever you want.
I use the products for 3 albums: month in review, kids' school, and a home construction album.
Check out the video on Becky's site.

More about them.....
The older ones are slightly thicker than the ones most available now. Some people don't like that. I don't care.
The older kits had the same number of cards, but many fewer designs per kit, and only one or two choice/year.
The newer kits are printed on both sides of each card. Some are the same design in horizontal and vertical, some are different designs front/back.
They make great places to journal no matter if you tuck them under a photo or into a smaller sleeve.
You can also cut these cards into smaller pieces. The corners are rounded, so the look good poking out from under other items on a larger scrapbook layout.
There's a big demand right now, and that's allowed quite a few different designers and color palettes to be available at the same time.
If you get a kit you don't want, you can trade or sell some of the cards here on FSOT board.

I don't do Project Life/divided page protector albums.
I use them on my regular LOs as design elements and journaling blocks. Sometimes I will do the PL/divided page protector grid style on a background sheet of paper.

My first kit is currently sitting on my doorstep, waiting for me to get home. I bought the Rain core kit, 3x4 cardstock, and both sizes of plain grid cards. My plan is to use some of the cards as a travel journal for an upcoming trip, possibly scan some to put in the digital book I'll do, and either put the originals in a mini album or use them on "regular" layouts with the memorabilia I collect. I haven't worked out which yet, and probably won't until I get home.
