Project Life and Stampin' Up! - A Match Made in Heaven!

Hi Stampers!  

I have some really exciting news to share with you today!  Oh my gosh, it's just too much....here we go!


Get ready for a scrapbooking revolution with Project Life! 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.
 be interested in buying exclusive-to-Stampin' Up! Project Life products from you!  

Why Project Life enthusiasts (and soon-to-be Stampin' Up! enthusiasts) will love these products:

  • Coordination, coordination, coordination. You know we do it best, and our Project Life line is no exception. 
  • Our products center 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.
  • Our card collections come without rounded corners so you can decide if you want to keep them that way (and match the corners of your photos as they come) or use our Project Life Corner Punch to round them out. 
  • Our 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.

April 2014 Scraptastic Kit - Italy Book Opening Page Layout

Hi Stampers!

I recently have begun scrapbooking and I decided to join the Scraptastic Kit Club.  I received my first kit this month and I couldn't wait to open it up just to use this sheet of paper with the map on it!  I thought it would make the perfect page to the opening of my album for my Italy trip.

 

I used the Jillybean Soup chipboard alphas for all of the titles and dates.


I also got the April This is Life Noted grab bag pack of journalig cards which is where I got the Chroma-Pic card from.  I thought it went well with the color scheme and vintage travel feel of the page.  I tucked parts of our boarding passes behind the photo of us.


I used my Basic Black Stampin' Write marker to add a dashed line to connect the cork airplane from New Jersey to Italy.  Just a fun little extra detail.  :-)


If you love Summer Starfruit (or any of the other 2012-2014 In Colors [Gumball Green, Midnight Muse, Raspberry Ripple, or Primrose Petals]) be sure to stock up soon!  The Stampin' Up! retirement list will be released on April 21st and it will soon be time to say good bye to this set of In Colors.

Travel Themed Bookmark Card

Hi Stampers!

Today I have a fun type of card to share with you.  It's a book mark card!  Yes, you can pull the focal piece out of the pocket and use it as a book mark.  I also made the card travel themed because everyone loves to read while on vacation.  What better way to wish a friend Bon Voyage?

Sarah's Stamp Lab

Here's a close up of the bookmark.  I made the bookmark piece using a retired Bigz die, but you can easily recreate this bookmark using either of the new Tag Topper punches!


To create the top of the bookmark, I stamped the images on Whisper White cardstock and then cut them out.  I also used the Hexagon punch to add a Real Red hexagon into the mix.  Then I just stuck them all together for a collage effect.



I hope this inspires you to create your own bookmark card!
