Project Life

Today over at Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration, the designers are featuring Project Life by Stampin' Up!  As much as I love to scrapbook using Project Life, I also enjoy creating cards with some of my "leftovers". 



The cards I created were made with elements from the This Day Project Life Mini Card Collection.  You can get this set FREE during Sale-a-Bration with any $50 purchase.


For this card, I trimmed the PLxSU card to 4" x 5-1/4" then layered it onto a Whisper White card base.  The greeting and balloon basket were stamped with Basic Black ink.  I die-cut 3 of the ballon shapes, folded them in half, and adhered them together to create this dimensional hot air balloon.


This card is even easier than the first.  I selected 2 PLxSU cards and trimmed them slightly to use as my background.  I cut one balloon shape, added the stamped banner, and some white baker's twine to complete this whimsical birthday card.

As always, the supplies for both cards are listed at the end of this post.  Don't forget to add your FREE Sale-a-Bration item when placing an order in my online store.

Thanks for stopping by!

Thankful album

So you've probably seen the latest Project Life by Stampin' Up! albums in the 6" x 8" size.  I love this smaller-sized album, but the plain cover was just so BLAH!  Don't you agree?


Now I know that the cover is plain by design so that we can customize it ourselves.  My typical reaction is to do nothing  because I'm fearful I'll mess it up.  Anyone else feel that way?  Well, let me put your fears to rest.....


Here are my tips to get you started:

  1. JUST DO IT!  Don't be afraid to add your artistic touches to the album.  It will definitely look better if it is embellished.
  2. Think of it as a card, scrapbook page or are just working on a different surface and possibly a different size than what you are familiar with.  It is a blank slate that you can use with mixed media techniques such as stamping, painting, or stenciling. 
  3. Add embellishments such as paper, buttons, ribbon, and die-cuts.

ThankfulFor my album, I started by applying modeling paste with the stripes decorative mask.  For a quick tutorial on how to do this, click here.  I did this very haphazardly to give it bit of a rough look.

After the modeling paste had dried, I added several pieces of designer series paper.  These were just scraps that I had leftover from other projects.  I laid them out until I found a layout that was acceptable.   I used hot glue to adhere the paper, but you can use anything with a strong hold. 

And finally I added the die-cut "thankful", a gold button, and some burlap ribbon to tie it all together. 

I plan to fill this album with pictures of my family and friends, and all the other things I am thankful for.   It seems  many people participate in a thankful month during October.  Wouldn't this be a great way to document everything that you are thankful for?


I have already finished my next album cover and will be sharing it here on Wednesday along with a new class offering.  Be sure to bookmark this page so that you don't miss it!


It's time for you to hop along to see what Wonderful Wendy has in store for you next.  And don't miss out....there are 10 stops along the hop and I know you'll find inspiration from each of these very talented women.

 Happy Stampin'
