Project Life With Karla!

Karla back today, and I'm finally feeling a little more settled with school starting back up and getting back into a routine! I found I really didn't have a lot of time over the summer to do Project Life, so I'm happy to get back to it now! I've printed off my pics for each week and now I can get them into my album.

I wanted to share some easy ways to add some extra details to your journaling cards using some paper ephemera! I used some fun die cuts from Maggie Holmes and My Mind's Eye and layered them on my Project Life cards along with some stamps to add some fun accents. I find it easiest to pull out the die cuts I think will work and then I just start layering them on until I find a position I like. Adding a few stamps over top is a nice way to anchor the design.

I used more preprinted die cuts and stamping on the second page. I find clustering the embellishments is usually an easier way to get them to work together.

On my third page I used some fun Cricut cuts from the Create A Critter cartridge and my Explore. I actually used the Write feature to write in my words, then added some Distress Inks and splatters with Dylusions Sprays. I used some Dylusions stamps to add some fun leaves to the dino cards.
On the bottom half of this page I stamped some fun Superhero images and then coloured them in with Prismacolor Markers and layered them on my Project Life Cards. I once heard someone say it made it easier for them to use stamps on their scrapbook pages by thinking of them as stickers. You simply colour in your images and then layer them on as if you were adding a sticker!

As I looked through my album I loved seeing all the journaling I had added and all the fun elements on my pages. Even though I'm a little behind I know this is something I do want to continue to do, and my kids love looking through the pages. That's what makes it all worthwhile!

Thanks for joining me today! I hope you enjoyed your Monday if you had a long weekend like we did here, and happy, crafty wishes for the rest of the week!
