As promised, another post about my Convention Display Board projects! (Remember to click on the button above to link to all the other display stampers on our Pinterest board)
What am I up to today? Project Life by Stampin’ Up! While some of our focus was on three specific stamp sets, we also had the option to include some projects made with Project Life. What is this? It is a memory keeping system that is super simple and fun. No stressing about layouts and lots of design elements and hard stuff and….. Nope. No stressing. The key is keeping it simple. Pictures and some fun printed cards and journaling the story with the pictures. But me being me, I had to make some cards with it too. Because this system is versatile. So you will actually use it! (Click any pictures to see them larger)
So it started by accident. I thought the biggest of the cards (4″ x 6″) from the Everyday Adventures PL x SU set would be super cute folded in half to make 4″ x 3″ note cards. So I started looking through the stack to figure out which ones worked best with the folding. Many of them it seems. So I chose a color variety. And then I started adding on things from the Everyday Adventures Accessory Pack. And buttons, staples, a little ribbon, Baker’s Twine….whatever worked. Then I pulled out the Project Life Corner Punch and went wild with it too. It was fun, it was quick and I LOVE how they turned out. It was hard to send them in. Of course they needed little envelopes so I pulled out the Envelope Punch Board to make them out of coordinating card stock in just the right size.
And then I made them a special box. A little tin I had (from the Container Store, I think). Another card and some more fun doodads (that is the official term I will now use for the accessories) and a little bit of card stock behind the see-through top and some more ribbon. Fun, huh? Conveniently the right size. I’d like to say I planned it but I wasn’t that smart. I was lucky! And you could always build them a box out of the new box punchboard (you KNOW that will be awesome – it is in the new Holiday Catalog and you will get to see it soon!).
And because all the PL x SU stuff was all over my desk by this time, I started on a more traditional card. Again just playing and layering with cards big and small and all the cool doodads. Because Project Life is all about fun and did I mention no stress? Yes, no stress. Layouts are simple because the cards fit the special Project Lifepages. Just add pictures.
