Hi, everyone. Sarah, here! I have a new Project Life page to share with you today.
For this project I used Simply Wonderful by Erica Zane, Studio Basic, and Sugarplum Paperie. This kit has so many awesome embellishments and amazing papers it was perfect for my Project Life page.
I love using dimensional items on my Project Life pages but I worry a bit about the bulk, so I use them fairly sparingly. I do however try to add lots of texture using various paper elements and layers. I love the interest that just paper can create on page.
For this first card I used the doily paper included in the kit, reduced to 6″x6″ before printing. I love the little bit of texture that the doily adds, plus it made a great space for my journaling on the card. I also added the painted paper banner in a coordinating color to add some more visual interest.
The next card has all sorts of paper bits and labels from the kit. Since the card was about payday I used the ledger card from the kit layered with some other paper elements for this card. I also really love the use of labels for small amounts of journaling on my Project Life cards.
For the journaling card about the tamales I used another great painted paper from the kit and layered it with a tabbed paper and then positioned the photo with a word strip and a bit of doily cut from the remaining paper from the errands card. I love the effect of repeating papers and patterns throughout my page. I also used the leftover strips from two of my background papers for layering on the GW2 card and the Payday card. It’s an awesome way to use up your scraps right away.
This entire page was created using only elements and paper from the kit that were printed and cut out, plus a few sticker alphas. While I love to pull out the enamel dots and wood veneer from time to time, paper is truly my first love, and I am thrilled that I can find fun ways to incorporate it in different ways in my Project Life album.
