Project Life Class

On Sunday, I hosted my first Project Life class.  It was so much fun, and we all accomplished so much!  We each did a whole album full of pages (it IS that easy)!  I have just a little bit of embellishing left to do on the rest of them, but here's a sneak peek of one of the pages. 

I haven't done the journaling yet, but you can see that the cards leave plenty of space for that.  

Project Life by Stampin' Up! is available in several different themes. We used the "Everyday Adventure" kit for this class.   If you are unfamiliar with Project Life, it is a memory keeping system based on simplicity. The pocketed page protectors allow you to choose where to put your photos, then you simply add the Project Life cards into the remaining pockets, and embellish with any of the matching accessories or Stampin' Up! coordinating products (and, because it's Stampin' Up!, you know the colors are going to coordinate)!

Did you know that there is also a Project Life app?  You can do all your pages digitally, and then print at your favorite print service.  How much easier can this get?!!?

Gratitude Journal

I've recently begun journaling - specifically gratitude journaling  It helps me appreciate the positives in my life.  As soon as I saw the sentiments in the For All Things stamp set, I knew it would be perfect to decorate a new gratitude journal with.

I started with a composition notebook, which I purchased from Amazon.  I covered it with a piece of Designer Series Paper, and then added a strip of Blackberry Bliss cardstock to cover the binding (it's kind of hard to see in the picture because of the dark background.)

The leaves are stamped from the For All Things stamp set, and cut using my paper snips.  The greeting was cropped with the Deco Labels Framelits die, then popped up using Stampin' Dimensionals.  I added gold baker's twine for the perfect finishing touch.  I can't wait to start using it!
