Project Life Easter Page

Have you been playing with your Project Life by Stampin’ Up! products yet?!  I’m having so much fun with them!  I held a Project Life introductory class a week ago and I wanted to share one of the pages that I created for our class.  

PLSUEasterThis page features the Playground Project Life Collection.  What I love about this collection is the color pallet!  This collection actually has some bold colors in it, but for this Easter page I decided to just use a few of the more subtle colors.  Do you see that little book in the bottom pocket?!  I had several pictures that I couldn’t fit on the page so I created this little book to hold those extra pictures.  I’m working on a little tutorial for you so you can create one too! I will add the supplies list and links to purchase below.

Product List

Project Life by Stampin’ Up!

There are few products that I have run across that truly simplify my life.  Project Life is one of those!  Throw all your original ideas out the window!  Project Life by Stampin’ Up! is truly revolutionary!  

What is it?  It is simple memory keeping.  No more guilt about all of those pictures you’ve taken and meant to get into a book.  I’m guilty of it too!  I have stacks (or in some cases they are all still in my photo program) of photos that I’ve been meaning to document. These memories are important to me.  With three growing boys I want to be able to keep those memories, but I need something easy, affordable, fast, and stylish.  In comes Project Life by Stampin’ Up!

Project Life – Everyday Adventure

I’m having SO much fun playing around with my new Project Life products by Stampin’ Up! I will admit I had to “let go” a little from my traditional view of scrapbooking, but this system will truly make my scrapbooking so much easier! No more guilt over all those pictures I’ve taken and haven’t done anything with! I can easily make a few pages in an hour or less.

I sat down to try out the new Everyday Adventure Project Life Card Collection and Accessory Pack that was introduced by Stampin’ Up! on May 1st. I grabbed a couple of photos that I had already printed and created this page using only those products and my Show & Tell Photopolymer stamp sets.

Project Life meets Stampin’ Up!

I am SO excited to share with you the BIG news!  Stampin’ Up! is teaming with Becky Higgins to bring Project Life Products in Stampin’ Up! colors and designs to you!!  Project Life is a super simple, totally affordable way to get your photos into albums: you just slip your photos into Photo Pocket Pages and add designed cards. It’s a back-to-basics approach to documenting your life. In a nutshell, it’s all about spending more time making memories and less time scrapbooking them!  

You’ll be able to order a selection of Project Life products starting May 1! And with the launch of our new annual catalog on June 2, you’ll be able to buy from our complete line of Project Life products.

I am looking forward to scheduling classes and home workshops using this new product.  I’d love to host one for you and your friends and show you first hand how easy these products really are to use!  Send me an email at kristin(at) to reserve your date!  

This video will give you a little preview of the awesome products you can expect from Project Life and Stampin’ Up!  

Epic Day This and That Scrapbook Page

Have you seen the new Epic Day This and That product line yet?!  Let me just say if you haven’t seen it yet you really need to check it out!  There are some awesome new products in the product line including a journal, designer washi tape, designer series paper, stickers, and a rotary stamp.  You can see the whole product line here.


I was inspired to create this page using the stamp set I received in My Paper Pumpkin this month.  The stamp set included in the kit is called Seriously, and the main image was perfect for his page.

journalingJournaling Tip: Do you like to add journaling to your pages, but you don’t like to see your own handwriting?  This journaling tag was created with the Two Tags Die and it opens up to reveal the journaling.


Here is the full 12 x 12 page I created highlighting the Epic Day This and That Bundle.  The Epic Day This and That Bundle is available for 15% off until the end of April.  After that you can purchase it out of the new catalog starting in June.

First Day of School

Happy Friday to you!  I have a fun First Day of School page to share with you today!  I saw this layout on another blog, for the life of me I can’t remember where, but it was one of those layouts that I had to CASE almost completely!  I am just loving this Storytime Designer Series Paper and have pretty much used up the entire pack that I had.  I guess it’s time to order more!  🙂  All of the elements on this page were from the Storytime DSP.  The embossed alphabet background was so easy!  I took a picture to demonstrate how I made my own background stamp.

(I apologize for the brightness of the picture here, apparently I had my flash on).  All I did was grab my largest Clear Block (F) and line up all of my Notable Alphabet letters (C#126357).  This is the benefit in having your alphabets in clear!  Now you have your own background stamp that you can reuse and you aren’t trying to line up a million little letters!  Once you line up all of your letters you can stamp as you wish.  I used Versamark and embossed my background in clear embossing powder on this page.  I have three or four alphabets in my collection and I keep coming back to this one, I just love it!  The ladies attending my September Scrapbook Night will get to leave with this fabulous page!  I hope they enjoy it!
