Project Life Album Overview

Project Life Album Overview | The Nerd Nest

I approach Project Life a little differently. I include weekly pages, spreads for projects like Day in the Life, projects for classes, and traditional pages, all in the same album. It can be hard to imagine how this all comes together, so I’ve put together an album overview so … Read the rest
