I have been having so much fun this week with my new Stampin’ Up Project Life products.  My first love, and the reason I joined Stampin’ Up, was to purchase the best, quality-product for my scrapbooking.  However, I still have hundreds of those pictures from trips, events, etc. that would take me forever to get in an album.  The solution:  Project Life!!!  With Project Life, I am able to get the pictures organized; protected; and most important, TELL MY STORY in a quick and simple manner!!  The most important (and I would say “sacred”) part of scrapbooking your life is your story that goes along with your life adventures.  My children, grandchildren, etc. are not going to open that album up if it does not tell my story of how I saw life at that moment.  Think about it, would you want to just sit and look at a pile of pictures without names, places, and thoughts?  Here is what Project Life offers:  It helps busy people (so basically all of us) document life using photos and journaling in a quick, simple, and fabulous way.   

Stampin’ Up has partnered with Becky Higgins, creator of Project Life, to offer a complete line of elite products.  Becky explains, “It's called Project LIFE because it's about YOUR LIFE.  Whatever your life is.  Whatever your stage of life.  Whatever your family circumstances.  Whatever your lifestyle.  Project Life is designed to help anyone and everyone get their pictures into a book.”  In a nutshell, it's all about spending more time making memories and less time scrapbooking them.  This simple scrapbooking solution appeals to non-crafters and crafters alike.  The product line centers on things that matter most -- weddings, babies, kids, and the everyday moments of getting together with your favorite people (all things that need to be remembered.)  The card collections come packaged in an exclusive storage system that holds all your Project Life supplies on your desk:  cards, journaling pens, photos, accessory packs, stamp sets, and more.  And best of all, everything coordinates with Stampin’ Up products you probably already own (card stock, ink pads, accessories, etc.).   

Today I have 3 album pages that I put together very quickly to give you an idea of what Project Life has to offer.  I didn’t add any “bells and whistles,” just the basic Project Life product – so you could see how beautiful the pages turn out with just Project Life product.  You still have the ability to step-up your pages!!  Along with the stamps offered in the Project Life line, I used a couple of my favorite stamps from My Paper Pumpkin Kit on the pages.

*The "Wahoo" and "Notes" stamps are from My Paper Pumpkin Kits.
The Project Life items listed below (except the French stamp version) were used to finish these pages:

If you like my stamps from Paper Pumpkin:

  • Each kit includes stamps, ink, paper, and accessories -- everything but adhesive.
  • Sign up by the 10th of each month to get that month's kit.  If you sign up after the 10th, you'll get next month’s kit as your first kit.

Until next time,
