Cloth Paper Scissors - Project 12

Here is a layout I did for Mary's Project 12 challenge at Soul Scrappers

Project 12

I’m sure that many of you have heard of Project 365. As a scrapbooker and someone who loves to take photos I thought that Project 365 would be just the thing for me. I took a photo each day for the first two weeks and even scrapbooked most of them. As the days went by I found that keeping up with this project was just too much for me. I love the idea of journaling my life through photos and scrapping them but I found that I did not have time enough to do it daily. So much for my Project 365 journey . I really did give it my best shot though.
Recently, I read about some scrappers doing this project once a month. I’m not sure if it is called Project 12 but it sounds good to me.

Here is what you do.

*1*. Take one or more photos of people, places or things that you do or see in your everyday life.
*2*. Do this once a month .
*3*. Using your photo/photos make a scrap page and add your journaling.
At the end of the year you will have 12 scrap pages to place in a book that documents your everyday life.

*4* Please upload your page to the album project 12-2010 located here. Make sure to add P12 in the tag line and in the title line. That's all you do.

To keep your book fun and interesting here are some photo ideas.

Take a photo of your crafting space
A photo of the inside of your closet
A book that you are reading
A photo of your favorite store that you go to each month
Having coffee with your family or friends
Your favorite jeans
A photo of yourself
Challenge yourself and show us your pages. But most of all have fun with this project.
Please feel free to add more photo ideas to this list.

and a close up



  1. Great idea, Shazza! I tried to do something similar last year when I was doing 7 on 7--I would take 7 pictures of my day on the 7th day of the month and scrap them. But, I too, got too busy to keep up with it. Please stop by my blog when you have a chance, I have something for you!

  2. Hey Shazza, it's me again!!! Please visit my blog again--I'm sorry about my goof up!
