Just Add Project Life


I love Project Life.  It makes scrapbooking memories so much quicker and easier, but you can still add your own personal touches. This week at Just Add Ink we were challenged to use project life products. Normally I don't show photos of my kids and extended family on my blog, no idea why as there are plenty of photos of them all over social media. 

These photos were taken before digital cameras were everywhere. I am sure some of you remember the wait to get film processed to find out if your photos any good! I have hundreds of photos like this of my kids when they were small, all in shoeboxes and I have decided that Project Life is the way to go to get them into albums, no matter what the quality of photos!!

GDP #050 Sketch


It is sketch time at Global Design Project for this week's challenge. I have kept pretty much to the sketch for this card. Make sure you head over there to see the design team's work as well as all the other entrants. Lots of inspiration for everyone.

The 'For You' sentiment is one of my favourites. It gives you a greeting on a card without defining what the card has to be. I can now use this for a birthday, mother's day, or even just a thinking about you card. The card will now stay in my stash until I am ready to use it. I will then put another sentiment on the inside to define the card.

Project Recipe
Stamps: Birthday Blooms and Thoughtful branches
Card: Peekaboo peach, basic black and whisper white
Ink: black memento, peekaboo peach and pear pizzazz
Accessories: 1 3/8 in and 1 1/2 in circle punches, gold bakers twine, wink of stella gold and air spritzer tool

New, Old and Retired for GDP Sketch #046


Yesterday I received a big box of new goodies to play with, but sometimes old favourite stamps work best. That certainly is the case here where the new, old and retired stuff all work so well together. A great example of how well Stampin' Up! co-ordinate their products.

Here is this week's sketch:
