Wow, I’m averaging about one blog post per week right now, huh? Hopefully things here will calm down soon, and I can blog every day. I have a ton of projects to show you, I just haven’t had time to write about them. But we are almost done with our house remodeling (our new interior doors are in, and we get to hang them this weekend — total house transformation!), so we should have a slight lull in activity soon.
I wasn’t convinced about Project Life by Stampin’ Up! until I tried it. I like traditional scrapbooking. And the pocket pages just didn’t appeal to me.
Until I did 10 scrapbook pages in one week.
Okay, I’m in.
I want to show you a traditional page I made using cards, stickers, and embellishments from the Everyday Adventure kit. This is one of my favorite kits because of the bright colors. Click the image to see the full size.
The four cards, including the HAPPY title card, are all from the Everyday Adventure card pack. And the frame around the pursuit of happiness quote is also one of the cards, I just used my Stampin’ Trimmer very carefully to cut out the center of the card so I could use it as a frame. Fun, right?
All of the stickers are from the Everyday Adventure accessory pack. The banners are all either stickers or are cut from the card pack using the Banner framelits. The star is cropped using the Stars framelits and a card from the card pack.
The arrow clip and the acetate arrow accent are also from the accessory pack, as is the washi tape. Each accessory kit, for all of the collections, comes with a roll of washi tape.
The “life is good” stamp is from the Project Life Remember This stamp set, which has a lot of great stamps for various occasions.
The little confetti sprinkles stamps are from the Endless Birthday Wishes photopolymer stamp set. I added those after the page was done, so the stickers were already in place, as you can tell. Sometimes a page just needs a little more after I’m done with it.
I stamped “HONEYMOONERS” with the Alphabet Rotary Stamp. (Um, yes, my honeymoon was almost 9 years ago, and I haven’t done the scrapbook for it.)
This page took me maybe an hour, and most of that was spent deciding which picture to use. :)
Easy, fast, fun, affordable, and adorable.
I’m having a little trouble getting a good photo of some of the pocket pages I’ve made, but I will get some today, because I really want you to see them.
