Project Life with Karla!

Karla here today and thought I'd share Week 18 of my Project Life! I love embellishing my pages with diecuts from ephemera packs!

When I'm designing my pages I first lay out my photos where I think they'll fit and then choose journaling cards. After I decide where my cards will go I start adding things like diecuts from different ephemera packs. Some of my favs are the Simple Stories, Maggie Holmes and My Minds Eye packs right now!


I love layering and will often use patterned paper as a background instead of journaling cards, especially when I want to layer a small photo into a larger pocket. I love using 6x6 paper pads for this!

  I used gold accents throughout my Week 18 pages, but I don't mind mixing and matching patterns!

I love being able to journal in the Project Life app and then print the card out with my photos and embellish it when I put it in my album. 

Sometimes I will just use a piece of patterned paper cut to the pocket size without any embellishments. The nice thing about this hobby is being able to add as little or as much as you like!

Thanks so much for joining me today! I hope this gives you some ideas for your Project Life or pocket page scrapbooking!

Farmers Market BoBunny Scrapbook Layout!

Karla here today sharing a fall page using the September kit from the Scrapendipity Truck. I just love these BoBunny papers and had to find some fall pics to scrap right away!

When the leaves start turning here in Alberta, you have to get out quick to get a few photos. They might only last on the trees a couple weeks until we get a few windy days - and then they're gone! I don't seem to have an abundance of fall photos, so I have to get the ones I do have scrapped. We have a nice farmers market close to us that we like to go to and happened to go at a time when the trees in the background were just changing colour.

This leafy BoBunny background paper is one of my favourites - I think I'm going to have to pick up more of this! I layered my pics on and then used the cut-apart sheets to layer on my page as a title and journaling card. I stamped the Tim Holtz leaf blueprint stamps onto some watercolour paper and let my girls watercolour the images with Distress Markers. I spritzed the leaves with Perfect Pearls mist to add some pretty shimmer!


I used some white Ranger texture paste and a Heidi Swapp stencil on the top right and lower left areas of my page. After it dried I popped my leaves up with foam dots to give them dimension. I wanted to give the clear gems some colour before I added them to the right side of the border strips, so I coloured them with an orange Prismacolor alcohol marker - perfect!


There are lots of lovely paper diecuts that come in the coordinating BoBunny ephemera pack - I used the 'remember this' diecut layered on one of the cut-aparts. I love how the texture paste is thin enough to show the details of the paper through it!


Thanks so much for joining me today! Fall is my favourite season - putting on a cozy sweater, baking pumpkin muffins, and not feeling guilty for staying inside to scrapbook ;)! Here's wishing you have a lovely week full of what makes you happy!

Fun Friday with Pam

Fall is definitely in the air. What better way to spend a bit of time making a banner? I used the 12 x 12 set of 'Rare Oddities' by Graphic 45.
 It is always difficult to photograph a banner
Before the computer makers took away my ability to load my camera card directly to my photos, I would have used the 'good' camera.
 As things are,
these are just cell phone shots.

They look great on the small screen, but unfortunately

do not blow up well. Trust me when I tell you this was well worth all the fussy cutting and foam sticky stacking
Graphic 45 paper is so sturdy, you don't need to back the entire piece with chipboard. I just reinforced the top edge with a thin strip of chip board, so the twine couldn't pull through when I hung it up.
 Cut the letters with the Cricut Halloween cartridge in two coordinating colors. Then I stickled around the inner edge for a bit of sparkle
This is just a little black box made from cardstock and then embellished around the edge. The books are cut from one piece and rounded over a knitting needle to make them 3-D-ish
 
I love digging into the stash to find just the perfect ribbon bits. This is hung with twine, and attached to burlap ribbon {sale bin last fall} and some ribbon. I simply did a loose knot between each panel and then ran the ribbon through each knot.


Have a Great Weekend
Well, of course we are ladies!
