Making a tiny 'project life' style album

17.2.13 - 15:00

I have seen a lot about the Project Life scrapbooking system and wanted to try the idea out for myself without investing in a lot of expensive stuff. So I made this smaller version.

I used this folder which is available from Paperchase. It's the same one I used for my December Daily which you can see here. You can also get a range of pages and some plastic pockets from Paperchase too. They have a full page pocket and one for two 6x4 photos. It's a three ring binder, which we don't use a lot here, but I just use a single hole punch to get the holes in the right places where I used paper pages.

I enjoyed having a go at this so I think I will go ahead and pre-order one of the new editions which are coming out this year.



New project: Italy scrapbook

2.2.13 - 15:29
If you've been reading a while you may know that I got married a couple of years ago. My new Husband and I went on a trip to Italy for our honeymoon and had a fab time. We travelled by train a lot and saved lots of tickets, maps and other bits and pieces. Unsurprisingly we also took hundreds of photos! We've never printed out any of the pictures. I'd like to get a nice photo book done but in the mean time, I'm going to choose a few and make a scrapbook.

Since January is generally a bit of a ... frugal month, I've spent a lot of time picking the right supplies for this new project. I want to use some things I've already got but also add a few bits to bring it all together. In the end I chose some papers and tabs from Pink Paislee's Portfolio collection and a great stamp made by Kaisercraft. I really like yellow at the moment so I've gone for a yellow, grey and turquoise colour scheme. Hopefully it will work well with the pictures and stories I want to tell.
