The Gina K Designs illustrators are hopping today to share some fun ways to combine the new release stamp sets. Hope you will join us as we Mix and Match!
For my project I decided on a Project Life page.
Well, sort of....
When I ordered the pages for the Project Life album I thought "this will be perfect because I have lots of random everyday moment photos".
Well then I finally tried it.
I can tell that even though this appears simple, like everything else, there is going to be a learning curve. I started out by picking a few photos. Then added some stamping and journaling like I would do for a typical scrapbook page. But then when I finished I went and looked through my Project Life board on Pinterest. Mine didn't look anything like the typical page. lol
I have found that in general the Project Life pages are much more random than I am used to. When I started my page I looked at it like a typical scrapbook page. Everything going together, photos from the same day. I was looking at it as one page. When reality it appears that the concept behind Project Life is to combine all of life's events together. Instead on one big page with 8 photos and accents this would in most cases be more along the lines of eight mini pages. Each one telling an individual story. I was discussing this on Facebook last night and mentioned- I am random, I'm just not sure I am *that* random.
This is definitely going to take some getting used to -along with researching, and of course more time playing and pinning ideas on Pinterest... what a shame ;)
Of course, I am also going to continue with my usual scrapbook pages as well. What kind of crafter would I be if I didn't have multiple projects going at once. :)
Either way, just like that first scrapbook page I made filled with stickers, bright papers, and photos cut into shapes with decorative scissors I will keep it. As the journey continues I will then have it to look back on and not only see memories of my sweet buddy but also memories of what I have learned along the way.
As I mentioned at the beginning of the post, today's theme is "mix & match". All of the projects today will include at least two newly released stamp sets from Gina K Designs.
Here are the sets included on this project:
