Project Life?

So I was challenged by Stampendous! to use some Project Life sleeves and I gotta tell you:
I had a HECK OF A TIME!!

I don’t know if I was obsessing about it being “perfect” or because I wanted to add more stuff… But it took me a long time to get the first page completed.

Here’s my first try:

There’s also the problem of photographing them… but that’s another day.
I used this assignment to try to get some more of my wedding photos scrapped. It worked out well! I have a lot of close-up shots and this is the perfect avenue for them.

I like that it doesn’t take much to fill a panel. I stamped this sentiment (NEW! Stampendous stamp coming soon…) onto a ticket die cut and that’s it!

Stampendous! has a stamp set coming out that’s geared towards journaling and Smash-book type papercrafts. It’s very handy for Project Life!

Here’s my second attempt that I actually kind of love:

With this configuration I was able to keep all of the photos full-size and I really appreciated that. There are some photos I can’t bear to cut! lol…


If you aren’t familiar with Project Life, here’s a little info:
Becky Higgins’ Project Life has taken the craft and scrapbooking world by storm. Lots of folks have embraced the commitment to simply scrapbook one single page or a two page layout of ordinary life per week. A way to celebrate all that is normal and right with your world, or even the special occasions or big events that happen with some normal life in between.  Here’s the Project Life Philosophy -

    1. haha.. well.. you know when you lose weight then gain it back it doesn't always go to the same place? I think that's what happened! I did lose about 20 lbs. from cutting out gluten but after that I've just kind of plateau'd. i do seem to lose it in the face first. never the belly.. why never the belly?????

  14. I really like the look of both of these. The matting of all of your non-photo panels in the first and the graphic quality of the 2nd is great.
