Project 365: A Starting Point for Other Projects

February 8, 2010

Have you heard of the fun New Year resolution that involves both the internet and a camera? It’s called Project 365 and it’s a great way to establish a habit of preserving moments and stories. Want to know how you can get in on the fun. Check out our Project 365 post.

Now, what can you do with this project as a heritage maker? You can create a book, of course. Instead of waiting until the end of the year to put your Project 365 book together, you can make it an ongoing project throughout the year. Then, when January 1, 2011 rolls around, all you have to do to get your book is select publish and wait for it to arrive.

Start your Project 365 today with Project 365 Revised (12×12 storybook, Template ID: 25695) designed by Darcie Toom. All you have to do is insert the photos and create the captions. If you have a blog, placing the text is easy: just copy and paste. And you can keep the layout as is. If you’re looking for a different look to go with your style, just replace the embellishments and play around with the Studio art.

And, if you’re looking for more projects to create while participating in the Project 365 challenge, try out these:

Greeting Card: Create a memorable Christmas card. It may be just a little early to be thinking about Christmas again, but this is a good project to keep in mind. You can use the template The Gift that Keeps Giving (5×7 greeting card, Template ID: 5373) designed by Dacie Toom to give your greeting card recipients a great overview of the entire year. Just select your top favorite 67 photos to place. Don’t forget to change the “T” to your family name. And remember, you don’t have to wait until Christmas to send a greeting card. You can send one every 67 pictures to mom and dad, grandma and grandpa, friends, brothers, sisters, etc.

Photos for Any Project: Use template Photo Place Holders (12×12 scrap page, Template ID: 18694) to print your photos in different sizes. You can use this page in your scrapbook, or you can cut out the pictures and create other projects, such as blocks, plaques, tiles, decorative bottles, etc.
