My Favorite Current Stampin' Up! Products for Project Life
Since the products haven't been released yet, I thought I'd share some of my favorite current Stampin' Up! products that I love using in my Project Life albums. These are products that you can get your hands on right now! (and a few of them are from the Occasions mini catalog that is only available for one more month)
Last year I did a daily Project Life album for each of my girls. While I loved it, it took a LOT of work and time. So this year I thought I'd do a weekly album for each of them.
Here are a few cards from my first week of 2014. Can you tell we had a ton of snow? I love the Retro Fresh washi tape (Occasions mini catalog) from the This and That line. I also used the This and That Rotary Date Stamp on my Week 1 title card.
Stampin' Up! has so many fantastic stamp sets that also work well with scrapbooking. One of my new favorites is the Just Sayin' set (Occasions mini catalog) with some adorable speech bubbles that make fun captions on your photos. I popped the "woo hoo!" bubble up with a dimensional to give it a little more dimension. For my "Week 1" card I used both the Notable Alphabet (week) and the Memorable Moments (1) sets. With two girls I don't have a lot of pages without bling so I added a strip from the Basic rhinestones.
What I love most about Project Life is that it allows you to make fast and simple pages, but they still are so fun to create and don't take a ton of time to do it.
