With the new year just around the corner, many scrapbookers are planning on starting a new project. Here is a list of a few ways to consider documenting your 2013.

PROJECT 365 or PROJECT 52

To do Project 365, you commit to taking at least one photo every single day for an entire year. (Hint – go easy on yourself if you miss a day here and there!)

I’ve seen Project 52 interpreted as a photography challenge (52 weekly photos) and as a scrapbooking challenge (52 layouts). It’s whatever works for you!

PROJECT LIFE

Project Life was created by Becky Higgins. Using a simple grid format and pre-sized journaling cards, you can document your life quickly and consistently. It can be paired with P365, but it does not have to be! Some scrappers do a 2 page spread every week and others scrap as they have material. You could even do it on a monthly basis. Project Life is whatever you want it to be.

NEW 52

Peppermint Granberg of One Little Bird Designs and Christine Newman of Listgirl started the New 52 project. Basically, you try something new-to-you each week, take a picture and write about it. You can note it on your blog or scrapbook about it.

TAKE TWELVE

The “Take Twelve” challenge encourages you to take 12 photos on the 12th day of each month.

    MONTHLY ROUND-UP

    Roundups

    At the end of every month, Katie answers a standard set of questions. It’s a wonderful keepsake to see what has happened each month – and can even be the starting point for future scrapbook pages. I haven’t done a round-up every month, but I have scrapped a few and I love how easy it is to answer the simple questions and document an entire month.

    MONTHLY FAVES

    Lynette at NettioDesigns documents her favourite things and moments from each month. What a great and positive gratitude project!

    A WEEK IN THE LIFE

    Ali Edwards documents a Week In the Life each year. This project aims to capture all the little moments in a typical family life through photography and journaling.

    DECEMBER DAILY

    I love to follow Ali Edwards’ December Daily album as she documents her family’s December days.

    Are there any other projects that you would enjoy learning more about? What projects are you considering for 2013?
