Ree here again, sharing another Project Life MY WAY! I touched last week on how Project Life will only be stress free and feel good when you are making it work for you. I think a lot of the reason that people get stressed out by scrapping, or perhaps disillusioned with the idea of scrapping, is because they get caught up in the woulds/should of scrapping. And that might work for some people, following rules, but I know for me, I need to make the experience a pleasant one.
In saying that, sometimes there are weeks where we don't get the opportunity to take 'enough' photos for a traditional 12x12 PL spread, and other times we might take a hundred great photos at an event. This is how I make that work for me :)
Becky Higgins released a massive amount of variations on sleeves and these little beauties are one of my faves! http://www.scrappingclearly.com.au/shop/brand-becky-higgins/becky-higgins-project-life-photo-pocket-pages-design-h/
I love this little layout, that sums up my week perfectly! We didn't have a lot on this week and I will admit, I was lacking in my photo taking inspiration. I had a lot going on in the background and I was just going through the motions. So this is what I had to work with, and I made it work! This side is using the Maggie Holmes Flea Market Mini Kit and bows, which you can find here in the store http://www.scrappingclearly.com.au/shop/group/project-life-mini-kit-flea-market-edition/ and http://www.scrappingclearly.com.au/shop/group/maggie-holmes-crate-paper-bows/
The other side of this layout includes some Heidi Swapp goodies, and honestly, if you are looking for Heidi Swapp products - Kylie is that lady to see!
I love me some enamel dots and there are some great options on the site here :) http://www.scrappingclearly.com.au/?s=enamel+dots&post_type=product&tags=1&limit=20&ixwps=1
This magic little flippy card here is just good old washi tape! I know there are some amazing techniques and tools out there now to create these flips and hidden journaling spaces, but I don't have any and honestly, good old fashioned washi works for me! There is a great collection of Washi tapes here http://www.scrappingclearly.com.au/?s=washi&post_type=product&tags=1&limit=20&ixwps=1 The cards used in this side of the layout are from the Heidi Swapp My Favorite Things Core Kit http://www.scrappingclearly.com.au/shop/heidi-swapp/project-life-favourite-things-core-kit/
I love Project MY LIFE! And I love sharing ideas on what works and what techniques people are using. Let me know what you think, what are you loving right now?
Thanks for stopping by :)
