FREE Printable: 101 Non-Kid-Related Things to Add to Your Project Life Album

Memory KeepingAnandiRCComment

I have a single, child-free crafty friend who claims she doesn't have enough going on in her life to do a Project Life scrapbook. Which is crazy because she travels more in a year than I have in the past five, she's out with friends several times a week and cooks fabulous elaborate meals on a regular basis.

So with her in mind, I sat down for a good old-fashioned brainstorm to keep my creative brain cells humming.  Here are 101 items you can add to your Project Life pages that have absolutely nothing to do with children.

You don't need photos for these items - they can just be used as writing prompts to fill an empty slot in a page protector.  You can grab a photo online (with permission of course), scan receipts, or use a related photo you took that might not be from the *actual* event. The Project Life Police will not come and arrest you. 

 I used the word "partner" to mean spouse, girlfriend, boyfriend, casual "wink-wink" friend, or your BFF. 

Even if you do have adorable children, these prompts will help add more of *you* to the album. You and your family will enjoy seeing glimpses of popular culture from 2014 when it's 2030!
