Default PL Newbie - help!

Let's just say I'm thinking in start PL next year... and I have NO idea how to start it!
What do I need??

I know that there's one site that deliver things to us here, so I wanna buy everything next week top to have things and start it! Yeah, I wanna do the "real" one - also printing the YUMMY cards and things we have here, of course, but I know me: if I let things to do on my pc I won't do that. I need the fisical product. LOL

I'm lost! Tell me everything I need to know!!!

most needed would be an album and a big pack of page protectors... if you'll be adding elements and doing weekly 2 page spreads, you probably will need two albums... white cardstock, ink, and a paper trimmer for printing and cutting... scissors for cutting out elements, adhesive/tape runner...

is there any pocket scrapper who inspires you, you can look through those pages to see what other supplies you want

Angie, 2peas!

Heather, Dunia told me about the album, protectors and one kit to start... And since we have SO many things here, I think that would be enough, but she does the digital one and I wanna try the real one...

And scrapper that inspires me?! You, for once! LOVE the way you used elements!

If you plan on doing hybrid, you could just order an album, a big box of page protectors, pens (I really like the Becky Higgins Project Life journaling pens and the Signo Uniball white gel pens... both are avail at 2Peas), a paper trimmer, and scissors... they don't have white cardstock for printing, hopefully you have a store you can buy cardstock and ink for your printer

that would be the minimum and most basic supply list... extra stuff I use if you want to add more to your cart lol... enamel dots, wood veneer, tape runner, tiny attacher, label stickers, alpha stickers, washi tape, date roller stamp and ink pad... I could add more to this list but that's usually my most used extras

Biggest things I think are deciding if you want to use more than one type of page protector or stick with one, and deciding if you want to do weekly spreads or just do monthly, or filling in with pictures when you want to.

I originally bought a mixed set of protectors, with more than one layout and then after some time realized I only wanted the one style of protectors so it was a waste of money for me. Wish I would have just gotten all type A to begin with

now I will have to think again about it! LOL and since looks like we don't have stores selling those products here, it's better to know all that before buy anything! so, thanks, KCB! ♥

This might seem silly, but I was wondering, does Project Life have to non-digital or hybrid? Can it be digitally created?
