Project Life Mini Summer Journal

Time for a confession: I haven’t kept up with the weekly Project Life layouts! And I’m okay with that – I’ve been too busy living life to document it. But I LOVE my subscription to Studio Calico’s monthly Project life kit and am using it on other projects.

I made this accordion journal for my 12-year old daughter to start documenting her summer. I used items from the following Studio Calico kits: Front Row Scrapbooking Kit, and Spencer’s Project Life Kit,

The dimensions and instructions are at the end of the post.

To create the journal:

  1. Cut a strip of watercolor paper measuring 30″ x 7″ (I bought a large sheet from an art supply store).
  2. Score every 5″ and round each corner with a punch.
  3. Cut several 10″ x 0.5″ strips of patterned paper and glue to bottom of book.
  4. Cut several 6″ x 4″ pieces of patterned paper and attach to some pages.
  5. Attach envelopes, Project Life cards and other embellishments to pages.
  6. Create the belly band: cut a strip of patterned paper 12″ x 1.25″ and create a decorative edge with a punch.
  7. Wrap around folded journal and secure in the back with adhesive.
  8. Attach the final Project Life journal card to the belly band.
