Projects Filled with Project Life

Are you looking for new ways to use Project Life?

I always like to look for new projects, and I tend to use my Project Life cards for more than just scrapbooking; for instance, today I decided to put together a few 4" x 4" note cards using the Hello Lovely Project Life Card Collection (item 141668). All of the cards are very simple and easy to put together. I used the Hello Lovely Project Life Accessory Pack (item 142687) to complement the cards with a few embellishments.

I used our Silver Glimmer Paper (item 135314) and the Rose Garden Thinlits Dies (item 140619) to accent the cards. To create the little tags, I used Old Olive Cardstock (item 100702) along with some Basic Black Solid Baker’s Twine (item 141682). They’re super-simple cards to put together as there’s no stamping or cutting required. BONUS, right? That’s the beauty of Project Life.

Now, to add in a little extra fun, I made a Project Life frame. I’ve loved these kinds of projects lately, and I have decided to put together two walls of family love in our living room. Here is where this frame will be added.

Last fall we had family photos taken at an old barn near our house. Gosh, I am such a fan of vintage settings for photos; they never fail, I find. We had just gotten our little puppy a few months prior, so it was a perfect time to snap the family. Our kids were the focal point in these photos—as they usually are! How can they not be when they are just so sweet together? These times are precious as they only last for so long.

I used Fast Fuse Adhesive (item 129026) to glue down each of the cards, and yes, this is a permanent adhesive, but I was okay with that. If you don’t want it to be permanent, you can adhere the cards with Velcro®; this lets you reuse the cards for another project. I also used Stampin’ Dimensionals (item 104430) to adhere some of the cards and doubled up on a few to create more of a pop.

I hope you enjoyed my projects today and that I was able to inspire you to make a fun project using Project Life. Don’t be afraid to think outside the box; it will never fail to amaze you!

    I would like to see a stamp set that features the monthly calendar stamp (like the one in the Project Life Date It set) with 7 calendars, each starting on a different day of the week. We could use this for perpetual calendars or to stamp out the month on a birthday card and circle the date. Since the first one id
