Welcome to our International Memory Keeping with Project Life Design Team Blogshare!
I hope you will visit ALL of my Stampin' Up! Demonstrator friends listed at the bottom of this blog post to see their Project Life page shares today – we are all featuring Project Life kits on the Stampin' UP! retiring list.
I started on my Stampin' UP! Caribbean Cruise 2005 Project Life album, and I elected to feature the Happy Times kit – it's on sale for only $8.00 for 100 cards!! CLICK HERE to see it! While it's frustrating that I'm so many years behind, it is delightfully fun to go back and remember our fun trips with Stampin' Up!
These are some of the 2 page spreads I created with the Happy Times Project Life kit and our Stampin' Up! cruise memories. Keep scrolling down to see some Project Life Tips!
I often get asked.. what is the best way to GET STARTED with Project Life!? Well, there is no one correct answer (well actually there is – whatever works for you!) but for me this is how I start:
I work well with this system… organize my photos, grab my pocket pages, then go through the Project Life cards. If you want to learn more about this system for starting your Project Life album, CLICK HERE to watch a video I created with Sara Douglass, Stampin' UP! CEO, as she explains 3 easy steps to starting your Project Life album.
Click here for more info on how I organize my Project Life cards for easy access at my Project Life station.
If I am wondering which Project Life Card Collection I want to use, I click on the Project Life card collections in the ONLINE STORE HERE, then I click on a card collection and click the MORE button then the + sign and I scroll through all of the card designs in that pack to give me a feel for whether or not I want to use that kit in my current album. See the tips below for seeing all the cards in a pack.
Did you know there is a pretty easy way to see a quick view of all the cards in each Project Life Card Collection? Follow the steps below after going to my Stampin' UP! online store here.
Patty's Project Life Pages and Tips:
TIP: Above and Below: Don't be afraid to cut some photos in 1/2. I learned this tip when I was creating my album with Sara Douglass… sometimes it just works out really well for your page!!
TIP: Above and Below: Use postcards, professional photos, and trip itinerary memorabilia in your pages to round out telling the story. Sometimes we just don't have all the photos we need for a layout or album and need to include other items.
TIP: Embellishment tip: Use Washi Tape and your stapler to attach photos, embellishments or memorabilia to your Project Life cards for added interest and dimension.
