Thread: How do you decide...

    How do you decide...

    ...whether to put your layout in the Project Life or the P365 category? Any rules to follow?

    I don't think it really matters. It's wherever you feel like you want to post. I put my pages from last year in the 365 gallery because I felt my pages were a record of photos more than giving a journaled account of the week.

    Well, the Project Life gallery is inside the 365 gallery. So I think the question is whether it is a Project Life style or not. If you're using pocket pages or are doing something that would be inspiring to someone doing Project Life, pop it in there! My 365 pages have just a single photo so I don't post in there.

    ETA: Whoops! I just noticed that they ARE actually separate galleries! It is tricky to choose!

    I put mine in the PL section because that is the thought behind them. I usually have one page, if I do two, that is roughly in the PL style.

    I've wondered the same thing. I generallly post mine in the Project Life because they don't give an account of everyday. Mine are more a smattering of things or photos of happenings during the month.

  6. Hi Anx!

    I really shouldn't give my opinion since I don't do either of these projects, but, here's how I differentiate the two approaches.

    365 to me, means a photo a day or at least a journal entry for each day.

    Project Life means weekly pages with a mix of photos and journaling that could be daily for the week or just the highlights for the week.

    Like others have said, no set rules for either approach; you do what you like and what works the easiest for you.

    As far as which gallery, no set rules there either. We just like to see the pages!

    I post in the Project Life because I don't do a photo a day... I just combine my photos from the week. Some weeks it is lots and other times it is just a few

    I believe you will be fine either way, but my mind thinks the same way as Merr mentioned above!! Either way, I am excited to see your pages where ever you decide to post!
