Stampin' Up! UK Project life by Stampin Up PLxSU blog hop

On to my project…..

I haven’t looked at project life for a couple of month 🙁 working nights over the late summer and autumn has kind of put pay to most of my life, and so I havent really done very much other than work and sleep! however, a few weeks ago James and I went to one of our favourite places – Beamish museum (If you are ever in the North East of England you MUST check it out, its awesome!), and had a great day!


Before we get into my album, I just want to apologise for the photos, photographing Project Life is still new to me, I hope to improve over the coming months! 

Stampin' Up! UK Project Life

So, I decided to keep things simple this month, concentrating on the photos and a little journalling. As I have already mentioned, I’ve been super busy with the day job recently, working nights is just about killing me, but its due to end soon! Yay! So, more time to craft and create is coming my way :D. I haven’t even included a title! (somewhat of an accident in the fact I forgot!) but we know where we were, and I do mention the place in the journalling.

This spread uses the Everyday Adventure kit (Stampin’ Up! of course!), but I have selected the subtler cards. I love this kit, but it is super bright!, the journalling card on this page originally had a Strawberry Slush coloured heart, which didnt really fit with the rest of the page, but I loved the lined card, so I covered the heart with a sticker from the Everyday Adventure Accessory Pack, and added a punched piece.

I love the look of rounded corners in my albums, I think it probably comes from using Becky Higgins Project Life kits for a while. So the Project Life by Stampin’ Up! corner rounder was a MUST for me!, along with the Design 1 pocket pages pack (its just my favourite layout – I’m using just these for the Wedding album too!)

There are touches of embellishment on some of the photos, but as I have kept all the photos at either 6×4 or 3×4 sizes there wasn’t much room for embellishment; just a couple of stickers or die cuts here and there, washi tape, and staples! (have I ever mentioned my LOVE for staples?!)

I am not an exclusively Project Life based scrapbook-er, I still love 12×12 layouts (I know, I know!), So I have also created a 12×12 to sit opposite this page in my album.

It also uses some cards from the Everyday Adventure Project Life Card Collection! It one of the many things I love about Stampin’ Up! – the fact that I can totally coordinate everything! I’ve added some home-made card candi to this page to add a touch of the ‘Cherry Cobbler’ type colour in the photo, as well as a hint of Old Olive green.
