Memories in the Making...and Cards...and Gifts!

How do you record your memories? Do you use and love Project Life by Stampin’ Up? I’ve been making scrapbook pages and Project Life albums for a few years now. I have to say that using Project Life makes the whole process easier. I can start with pockets sized for my pictures, coordinating cards and accessories and so many of the creative decisions are already made. I love the variety of kits that Stampin’ Up! creates every year, and the Project Life Memories in the Making Photopolymer Bundle from the Occasions catalog is no exception.

Memories in the Making...and Cards...and Gifts! Using PLxSU for all your crafty needs by Marisa Gunn.

I started with two Project Life pages. I wanted to capture some fun pictures from a get together with my two crafting besties. I used the main Card Collection, and decorated them with the Accessory Pack and the Photopolymer Stamp Set.

I added some Basic Black Baker’s Twine to the title card and stapled it in place using the Handheld Stapler. I used the stickers in the accessory kit on the journal card also.

Right now during Sale-a-Bration, you can earn the coordinating Memories in the Making Project Life Specialty Card Collection for free. The Watermelon Wonder printed acetate card below is one of the specialty cards that was 4”x6” and I have cut down to 4”x4” to match the printed card underneath.

I layered two more of the specialty cards (UV resist Watermelon Wonder hearts card and the white printed acetate card) in the upper left pocket. I’ve also used the coordinating Project Life Cards & Labels Framelits Dies and the Photopolymer Stamp Set to add captions to my pictures.

The pocket pages I used are from the Variety Pack 1 12" X 12" Project Life Photo Pocket Pages and the Variety Pack 2 Project Life Photo Pocket Pages.

These adorable products can still be used for all of your paper-crafting needs. I made 3 cards and a small gift bag with this same bundle, supplemented with Stampin’ Up inks, cardstocks and Designer Series Papers.

I water-colored the background of this UV resist card, and cut it down to fit my card front. I also used the Balloon Bouquet Punch to cut balloons from some of the cards. I also added white sequins and the wood greeting to complete the card.

Here I layered a 3”x4” card over a 4”x6” card cut to 4”x5”, added some stamping, wood flowers and the cute Washi tape to complete my card.

The Accessory Pack includes these adorable 2”x2” cards that I added to a card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals for some depth. I completed the card with more wood accents and a leftover strip of the Watermelon Wonder printed acetate card. I think it’s simple and cute!

For my last project, I water-colored another UV resist card with a triangle pattern and matted it with Watermelon Wonder Cardstock. I cut some banners from the cards, and stamped a greeting on a Whisper White 8-1/2" X 11" Thick Cardstock banner. Some Basic Black Baker’s Twine and a Clothespin complete the small gift bag that I created using the Gift Bag Punch Board.
