Yikes and shame on me. I have been so busy with work, The Mumster visiting, celebrating our anniversary, work, and the long weekend that I forgot to announce the winner of the little "Project Life Vintage Travel" notecard giveaway.
And the winner is: Megan!
Thanks to all who participated. I was at Michaels yesterday and saw the other Project Life kits they carry....DANGEROUS!
Happy September everyone. I can't believe I just typed SEPTEMBER.

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

This collection features deep blues, reds, browns and dark neutrals, and as the name suggests, lots of travel themed icons. This post is part of a paid campaign with American Crafts, but all opinions are my own.
I have been an on and off scrapbooker, and Project Life is a great way to scrapbook if you are just starting out or if you are a veteran.
Included in each kit are enough themed cards to complete an entire album. Included are cards with suggested layouts. You don’t need scissors, glue, or fancy tools. The albums support the card sizes from the kits and you can lay things out how you choose.
For this album, I selected several of the pre-scored cards from the kit:
Since everything coordinates, I didn’t really plan out a pattern. You could easily choose from one color family or use all of one pattern or theme or whatever you want.
This is the back cover. You can go check out the the Vintage Travel kit along with the Dear Lizzy 5th and Frolic core kits at Michaels, which carries one of the largest selections of Project Life. The Dear Lizzy collection features light blues, pinks, yellows and neutrals with birds, trees, houses, and keys.
