Catching Up on 2017 Project Life ~ Week 12 with Melinda

Welcome to the ScrappingClearly blog!!
Today I am sharing a 2017 Project Life spread for which I have done a bit of a "ScrappingClearly Stash Dive" to find supplies.

The Project Life style of memory keeping, with pocket pages, is quick and allows lots of space for story-telling if that appeals to you.
I love the variety of page sizes and pocket orientation available too
it just makes it so easy, which is great if you have a busy life!

I've started with the following goodies and I will link to the store both here and where they appear throughout my blog post. I also have a process video up HERE on the ScrappingClearly YT channel which I would love for you to check out!!

And here are my pages, first up is the left hand side

On this side I have used the "Wowzers", "High Five" and "You Rule" papers from Pink Fresh Studio as my cards. I've also used some of the Mini Alpha Stickers, ephemera pieces and also the Sticker Phrases from the same collection. A little washi and some veneer pieces from this pack by Heidi Swapp and this pack by Studio Calico. Some journalling and date stamps and the left hand side is done.

Here are a few close ups of this side

And here is the right hand side

On this side I have used 3 of the ephemera tags by Teresa Collins for the cards and cut a piece of the "Bold" patterned paper to 3x4 for my title card. I didn't feel like I needed heaps of extras on this side but I have used the photo overlay on the bottom left hand photo, a couple of ephemera pieces and one of the printed veneer stickers. The bottom right photo is a flip pocket and on the inside I have a piece of the "Wowzers" patterned paper for my card and also one of the Studio Calico wood veneer pieces.

On my title card I have used another of the Heidi Swapp veneer pieces, covered it with 3 coats of white gesso and used a stamp from my stash with Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Ink. Some washi, mini alpha stickers and a couple of the ephemera pieces and this page is all done too!

Here are a couple of close ups including one of the flip pocket opened

It feels so good going back and getting these pages done!
Slow and steady and in the album is way more important than "perfect" to me
and I am happy in that place right now!

I had lots of fun mixing and matching all of these different pieces together and really like the way it all came together in the end. I hope I inspire you to get some more stories documented and until next time, happy scrapping.
