To prevent "falling behind" on my project life style/ pocket style scrapbooking, I am editing & saving my photos with pic frame and printing my photos at home every 2-3 days. I then trim and insert the photos into the pockets. At night while watching television with my husband, I will insert the journalling or title cards into the pockets. This way, when I do have time to work on it, I can embellish and journal in more detail.
To be honest, I am still "journalling" on my project life style layouts from November 2013 ;) the key is not to stress about it. I'm glad the photos and inserts are all in and all I need to do is journal- or not ;) Either way, my 3.5 year old loves flipping through the pages (journal-less and all). He actually loves having me narrate each page with, "Once upon a time.." He truly is a sweet boy.
Okay, enough rambling. On to my layout. I used the Scraptastic Kit Club Jan 2014 "Baby, It's Cold Outside". Here is the process video on YouTube:
