Cardmaking with Project Life and A Just Because Giveaway

Here's The Story Project Life

You may recall the post I had up last week using the “Vintage Travel” Project Life scrapbooking kit. While it’s designed for easy scrapbooks, I decided to use it to make some cards. The great thing is, since the Project Life kit is  made by American Crafts, it coordinates with American Crafts papers! I love it when a plan I didn’t have comes together.

Vintage Travel Project Life

Here are some of the Project Life scrapbook cards I randomly selected along with a piece of scrapbook paper I had in my stash ( Fifth and Frolic collection).  I had fun using designs in the cards as inspiration. For example, I used a circle punch to punch out the middle of one card and used the punched out portion here:

Project Life Greeting Card

I distressed the cut out circle with some ink, tore another card and adhered it to the “Thousands of Little Moments” 5x7 card and used the scrapbook paper as my background Finished with some coordinating baker’s twine and washi tape.

Project Life Vintage Travel Kit

Here’s the negative from the PL card I punched out. I  trimmed it slightly and layered it over yet another card from the kit. Used more distress ink over the whole thing and used it along with a sentiment from another card to make the card shown at the top of the post.

I was having so much fun I couldn’t stop. So I grabbed even more cards from the kit and decided to make some 4.25 x 5.5  notecards.

Notecards Project Life

Each of these notecards uses pieces from the PL kit, just randomly paired together, cut up, torn up, etc.

Project Life Camera Card

I finished some with glitter tape and others with washi tape and some with both. And guess what? I’m giving them away! Why? Why not.

Here's the Rafflectopter widget and entry is simple. Leave a blog comment telling me what your favorite back to school supply was as a kid. I loved school supply shopping almost more than back to school clothes shopping. From the days of sharp new crayons to fresh clean paper and notebooks. New pencils with unused erasers! A new box of pens. Nerdalert!
