“Life in a BOX – Scrapping your Daily Life inside the Box”

January 15, 2013

Hello everyone!  I would like to introduce “Life in a BOX – Scrapping your Daily Life Inside the Box.”   I am really excited as I wanted a way to scrap as MANY or as FEW photos as I wanted during the week.  Some days you have more than one photo you would like to scrap, and some days you don’t have any.  This takes all the pressure off HAVING to take a photo a day, and yet leaves the versatility to scrap any or all of your daily photos each week.  Also, the template squares are GREAT for Instagram users!

In addition, adding quotes and embellishments, marking dates, and recording journaling is super easy and fun using our “Simple Squares.”  *Simple Squares are all-done-for-you boxes that fit right into the squares on the templates.  They include embellishments, journaling options, paper blocks, date & Month labels, quotes, etc.  All you have to do is drag and drop them into the blank squares on your template and your layout is finished!  I am planning on releasing several sets of Simple Squares each month throughout the year!

So, you take a very basic template of squares, add photos, add a couple Simple Squares, journal, and you are done!  Super easy and simple, but there is still room for fun, versatility and creativity. 🙂

Check it out:


I created the template sets in both 8.5×11 and 12×12 sizes, and then several versions of each:
~Kraft paper or white paper backgrounds
~With or without White Photo Border
~Small or large Squares (range of 6-16 total photos)
~With or without Shadows
~Choose from templates with all squares, or
variations with horizontal or vertical options.

They are all included in these two sets available in 8.5×11 and 12×12 in the shoppe:


And here are a few layouts I have made with the templates and Simple Squares 🙂



Ok, that is all for now! I will be adding Simple Squares and other Journal Cards to the shoppe often, so watch for those 🙂  Let me know what you think and I will pick a couple of you ladies to win a set of templates to get you started!

Hope you have a great week!!

xo Gina

Wow, I LOVE these! So simple and so beautiful. These will be perfect for me to scrap our next year since I have a newborn and am a little short on time for scrapping these days. 🙂

January 16, 2013 at 3:01 am

Congrats on your baby! I definitely need something fast and easy this year too 🙂

I love this concept. It really seems to simplify scrapping the days/weeks/months.

January 15, 2013 at 6:18 pm

Oh my word! You will not believe this. I had already planned on doing squares this year. I had already started making my own templates. So, yes, yes, YES!!! This is exactly what I had in mind!!! Not surprising since this will be my 5th book with WW Project Life stuff. (not that I finished 2009 or 2012 yet – but I will) Crossing fingers . . . hoping to win. 🙂 It is honestly like you read my Project Life scrapping mind!!

January 16, 2013 at 3:02 am

I am so glad you like it and was what you wanted this year 🙂

January 15, 2013 at 6:24 pm

These are fantastic. I had visited the shop recently to see what was new for this year. I was hoping everything was okay with you when I didn’t see new “stuff,” so I am glad to see this.. As always, your work is fantastic and FUN. I LOVE the squares and the mix-and-match concept. All your little “in the box” extras finish the pages off perfectly.

January 15, 2013 at 7:31 pm

I have been looking to start a weekly layout in 2013. Your new design is perfect! Thank you for the chance to win some templates – what a nice way to start the scrapping year 🙂

January 15, 2013 at 7:59 pm

I just love these! So simple yet so easy to add to!

January 15, 2013 at 8:26 pm

Love this! Looks as though it will be easier than ever to keep up with Project 365. Thank you!

January 15, 2013 at 9:22 pm

Awesome! What a simple way to keep caught up with my 365 project.

January 15, 2013 at 9:45 pm

Love this idea and the squares! I look forward to seeing more.

January 15, 2013 at 10:01 pm

Perfect! I love the look of the squares as well as the clean simple look. I can totally see accomplishing much with these! Thanks so much!!!

As always, IOVE IT! great set up. thanks for creating these.

This is going to be PERFECT for my p365 using my iPhone this year! I take all my pics with Instagram in mind so squares are ideal 🙂

January 16, 2013 at 3:03 am

ME too! I can’t wait to scrap my Instagram photos this year 🙂

January 16, 2013 at 2:32 am

This looks so simple and easy. I’ve been wanting to do a year in the life album and think I can actually complete this one.

January 16, 2013 at 2:34 am

Love it Gina! I was waiting for squares because I use my iphone to take photos so much!

January 16, 2013 at 3:00 am

I do too! I am so excited to scrap my phone and Instagram photos now 🙂

January 16, 2013 at 8:56 am

That looks great Gina! 🙂

January 16, 2013 at 9:10 am

Very nice idea!
I am really excited and can’t wait for the year to go by, and use these templates!

Thank you very very much, Gina!!

January 16, 2013 at 11:40 am

I often have trouble with square photos since I don’t plan for them when I take pictures. But your layouts are awesome so I’m going to give it a try! Love the Simple Squares!

January 16, 2013 at 5:58 pm

Gina, I absolutely adore these! I love the clean and simple look to them. Every year you blow me away with your creativity. Thank you so much for creating such a great way to preserve our precious family memories.

January 17, 2013 at 9:42 am

Gina I love the new layout idea! So simple but each page can be so different based on the picture size you choose and the squares added. This will also make scrapping Instagram pictures a breeze! Wonderful as always Gina!

January 17, 2013 at 6:42 pm

Just what I need to get back into scrapping!!! Are you doing a bundle deal or do we need to buy pieces separately?

January 23, 2013 at 2:08 am

Stephanie, I am putting lots of Simple Square sets in the shoppe periodically so I wasn’t planning on bundling the templates with them at this time.. thanks 🙂

January 17, 2013 at 6:47 pm

Just love it! I did paper 365 for 2012 and I am headed back toxicity for 2013 ! This system is awesome!

January 17, 2013 at 6:48 pm

Very Awesome…..! This would be a great 2013 template series….just gotta get past the EASY part! Very creative..! =)

January 17, 2013 at 6:49 pm

Back to digi that should read 🙂

January 17, 2013 at 6:49 pm

Wow! These are brilliant. How easy would this make my photo scrapping efforts. Love them Gina.

These are great! Love the look!

January 17, 2013 at 8:11 pm

Love the squares idea! I needed simple this year, and this could not get any simpler! Love it!

January 17, 2013 at 8:33 pm

I look forward to seeing what great system you’ll come up with every year. This one is my favorite! It looks so simple, even I ought to be able to do it! 🙂

January 17, 2013 at 8:41 pm

I have Instagrams I took every day last year, but hadn’t decided how to scrapbook them. Now I know! love this system :0)

January 17, 2013 at 8:44 pm

I’ve moved to digi for Project Life, so this new system is great – give me some variety. Love it!

January 17, 2013 at 10:57 pm

Just love these… I bought life 365 a few years ago, and still use it. Altho, the year I bought it, it turned out to be more like life 159 🙂
I love your style, and I am going to need even easier to document scrapbooking as my second grandchild is on the way:) So this is awesome timing, how did you know?:)

January 17, 2013 at 11:02 pm

Finally, an easy system that newbie me can truly work with! ^__^ Simple, clean, and versatile to boot! Thank you Gina for coming up with this. I’m not a good digi-scrapper but loves to record each and every moment of my family’s life so Life-in-a-Box will be truly be helpful to me 🙂 Now I can get on making those darn yearly photobooks! And yes, I’m gonna use this system for the past years I have not yet finished a photobook. I think I’m about 3 years behind, LOL! I always give up mid-year but this year, by the grace of my creative juices and Life-in-a-Box, I will finish ^__^

January 18, 2013 at 12:51 am

This looks perfect for my Instagram photos. I am trying to do a photo a day, but I am bound to blow it eventually. lol

January 18, 2013 at 5:06 am

I hadn’t even considered doing a purely digital layout before seeing this design package. Lovely, simple and quick it’s what we strive for.

I started with a new P365 book for this year, with all the templates/QP’s you created last year (bought the complete set at DSD). It’s the third book, I make them every other year. What I love about your work is that it’s not only very nice to use for a P365 (or similar) kind of album, but also for the year albums I scrap for my kids. I love templates with many photo openings on it, so I can scrap holidays or other venues where I have lots of pictures of, in a few pages. Thank you for that, and for another creative scrap solution!

January 18, 2013 at 4:26 pm

What I would LOVE to see are a few HOLIDAY themed sets…I know you don’t usually do them but maybe one for each month? Loved the 365 and am still using them (sorry…didn’t like the graphic ones as much….just not my typical style). Think this will be a great new way to start of 2013! Guess I’ll have to see how the squares work out…sure I can think make it work! Thanks again!

January 18, 2013 at 6:52 pm

These are great – love the versatility! Those little box cards are so cute too!

January 18, 2013 at 7:06 pm

These are soooo cute! Really like how everything co-ordinates and makes it simple. Makes me want to get scrapping for 2013 & work on what I missed last year too. Thanks for sharing your creativity with us.

January 22, 2013 at 5:55 am

Wooow Gina, I totally love them. They are so clean and simple, perfect for starting my daily life 2013. And of course your great photos in templates, I have no words – it looks amazing! Thank you for a chance!

January 24, 2013 at 5:27 am

Your Life365 system and Project Life have always appealed to me. And now, here’s another. Yay!

January 31, 2013 at 2:29 pm

I have LOVED your previous Life265 and Project Life, and now this will make it even easier!! Plus, I’ll be able to add elements from those kits. So AWESOME!!

February 2, 2013 at 1:57 pm

wow! these pages fantastic. i would love to give it a try. thank you.

Love these!! Sign me up for it all. LOL! Definitely going to add some to my wish list! Love the flexibility, as I’m not so disciplined to take a photo every day, but I love layout systems that are good for gathering many photos together easily.

February 16, 2013 at 3:49 am

Looooove, loooove, loooove them! <3 They look so easy and cclean and it semms easy to focus on the main part… photos and the story behind them. And I just can take as many – or as less – pics as I want. Congrats to this faboulus idea.

February 27, 2013 at 1:27 am

I just purchased the 8 1/2 x 11 templates and love this idea! Can you please suggest a good quality printer for this size? Thanks!
