Project Life # 3

I’m challenging myself to create at least  page a week until the end of the year so that I will have 12 months worth of photos for my nieces.

Today’s post is one of my great niece “Zoe” & her “Uncle Jess” just before he flew out to Argentina in December.  He looks like he is enjoying every moment of feeding Zoe.  Zoe was born a week before Christmas – 5 weeks premy & put everyone’s plans out for that week – as they can do.

I kept my page pretty simple, but still trying to keep the page suit for a baby & not become a boy’s page.  I picked up the colours of Jess’ shirt & the little pink suit, but opting for Melon Mambo instead of the softer pinks like Pink Pirouette or Blushing Bride.019bb-wm-blog

Once I printed the photo, I adhered it to a layer of Basic Black, printed “Uncle Jess & Me” using MDS onto Whisper White Card, cut a “V” into each end & adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Card # 1 – I ended up using “Everyday Adventure” again.  For my journalling card, I cut the Melon Mambo stripe off the larger card & then cut the card down to 3″ x 4″ before adhering the stripe onto the card again.  I didn’t want to loose the banners from the Right Hand Side of the card.

019aa-wm-blogCard # 2 – Created by cutting a piece of Whisper White Card to 3″ x 4″, adhered a piece of the Washi Tape from the same pack, cut 3 x different size Banners – 1 x Tempting Turquoise, 1 x Basic Black & 1 x Melon Mambo & adhering to the card.  I adhered the  small Star, Heart & Circle from the same pack with a Glue Dot, punched a large Star from the scrap of Melon Mambo stripe before adhering to the Banner.  I finished the card off by randomly scattering Rhinestones.

Again, a quick & easy page to complete.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’



Project Life

With I’ve been trying to get back into scrapbooking for a couple of months now & for some reason the motivation has not been there, so this morning I sat myself down, sorted through a couple of photos & decided that I was going to scrap 2 albums (I know, I don’t do things by halves) for Christmas – 1 for each of my 2 nieces for this year & give them as a Christmas present.

With this “idea” in mind, I decided that it was the perfect time to start using Project Life by Stampin’ Up!  Mind you, I have done a couple of these albums over the last few years but non-SU! & just by going what Becky Higgins was doing.  I used to 001plmake all my own stuff for the albums as I couldn’t get the product here.  So much easier when it is all done for you.

With my photo, Project Life Pocket Page, Everyday Adventure” Card Collections & Accessory Pack, I sat down & started playing with colours & patterns.  To begin with, I wanted to pick up the gorgeous colour of Elaina’s hair & found the perfect match from the Card Collections.

With only the 1 photo to pop onto the page, I decided that I would layer the photo onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock prior to layering onto 1 of the pattern cards, punched 3 small flowers using the “Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack” (Retired), popped 3 x small Pearls to the centre of each prior to adhering along the top of photo & popped it into a pocket – Easy!

I then printed “Capturing the” onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock, stamped with an image from “Work of Art” in Melon Mambo & Daffodil Delight Inks prior to adhering a small Black Stripe Banner from the Accessory Pack over the top.  I printed “MOMENTS” onto a scrap of Whisper White Cardstock, cut it into a Banner Shape & popped it over the black stripe banner with a Stampin’ Dimensional prior to popping into a pocket.  Another done & dusted!

With the idea forming that I wasn’t going to do the journaling but leave a space for Danielle to it, I printed “January 2015” onto a matching Card & popped it into a pocket – How easy is this?

To complete the page, I popped a matching card into the final pocket!  Nothing to it!

Once I had decided on the colours, etc this page took me all of about 10 minutes.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
