Project Life Happy

Another Project Life set that Lisa Bearnson sold on last month’s 24-Hour Craft day was the Happy edition. Unfortunately, this edition sold out right away, but I still wanted to share the pages I made with it. This set was sold exclusively in Australia and was offered for the first time in the US on HSN. I’m not sure if it is available anywhere else at the moment. :( It’s too bad. I loved this kit and would love for you to own it, too! If I hear or read anything about it being available somewhere, I will be sure to let you know.

Here is what one of my pages look like with just the cards and journaling tucked into the pockets.

But if you are like me and like to add all of the additional doo-dads and die cuts … you can spend a little more time raiding your stash and make your pocket pages look like this.

On this spread I pulled out the purple and blue colors from the kit.

More Project Life Azure Pages!

Happy Monday, Friends! Last week I shared a couple of projects with you created with the adorable Azure Project Life Kit available on HSN.com. Today, I have three more spreads to share with you using the same collection.

This first page features some photos from my kids’ last day of school last year.

I love adding die cuts (created with my Silhouette Cameo machine) and embellishments to each card. Can you tell I love buttons? Hehe!

See the white letters going across the photo of my family in the dune buggy? That is one of the overlays included in the kit. It’s a sheet of 4×6 clear acetate that you just slide in front of your photo … no adhering, nothing. Easy peasy as could beasy!

Here is a page spread where I pulled out the blues of the kit. The colors go great with our photos from visiting a mountain cabin and the local dinosaur musuem … these colors would be great for masculine page spreads, too!

On this last page, I pulled out the reds from the kit to create a page using photos from Valentine’s Day.

The great thing about this kit is that it also includes 12 x 12 patterned papers for those of you who like to create coordinating scrapbook pages inserted throughout your Project Life Album.

You can find this Azure kit (see close up pictures of the kit contents on my blog post from last week here), along with the coordinating 12 x 12 Azure album, at HSN.com.

Happy crafting!

BasicGrey Herbs & Honey

Today I have a new project up on the BasicGrey blog using the Herbs & Honey collection. I know that sometimes people shy away from purchasing a themed collection like this, but rest assured you will find plenty of reasons to use these cute papers! (Wouldn’t they make an adorable Recipe Album?)

Infact, I used these garden-inspired products with photos of my daughter in a Cowgirl costume. See?! Just use them for what you want. The colors and textures are the most important thing!

DADDY DAUGHTER DATE

JanaEubank_BasicGrey_DaddyDate1

For my assignment, I was challenged to find an image on Pinterest and use them along with the Herbs & Honey Bottlecap Stickers (arent’ they cute?!). I have always been inspired by wedding cakes, and was drawn to this quilted diamond patterned cake with the studs adorning the points of each of the diamonds and thought it would be a really fun idea to use with the tiny bottlecaps.

I used the my Silhouette Cameo electronic die cutter to cut several diamond shapes from the Herbs & Honey 6 x 6 paper pad and then arranged them in a random order on my background. Then, to mimick the studs, I placed the small bottlecap stickers on each point. LOVE!

I created the title by layering together two colors of the tiny Alphabet Stickers (love that you get so many colors on one sheet), and paired them with the Kraft with White Print Chipboard Alphabet Letters. My vertical photo is adhered to one of the Printed Kraft Bags. My journaling is added to one of the Snippets and accented with an Element Sticker and a couple more Bottlecap Stickers.

Finally, I added a die cut tab to the top of my vertical photo and a couple of the transparency borders underneath my title (both from the Die Cuts & Transparencies pack).

Sadly, this is my last page for the BasicGrey Design Team. I have LOVED working with their collections and being a part of such a talented team for the past two years. I will miss them, and will always be a fan of their amazing collections. Blowing kisses their way! Thank you for the fun ride!

Have a great day!

Project Life Azure Projects

If you are a Project Life fan, you might want to check out the Project Life Azure Core Kit with Paper and Photo Overlays available on HSN.com. The contents of this configuration include the Azure Core Kit, 24 sheets of coordinating designer patterned paper (2 each of each design), 12 Azure dividers (with white label stickers), and 12 overlays. The designs in this kit stole my heart from the minute I laid eyes on them! I LOVE the colors! Here is a closer look at everything.

Don’t you just love all of the colors and designs?! I love how versatile they are … I can see myself using these for everyday memories, school memories, pulling out colors for certain holidays (red/white/blue for the 4th of July, or the reds for Valentine’s Day/Christmas), and using the cards for feminine OR masculine pages.

There is also a coordinating 12 x 12 Azure album available HERE. (Sorry, my pics seriously don’t capture the absolute CUTENESS of this album … but I tried. :) )

If you are new to Project Life the great thing about these cards is that you can tuck them into the page protectors, jot down your journaling, and leave them AS IS, like I have done here.

JanaEubank_Azure_1BeforePlay1_600

 

Or you can spend more time embellishing the cards with items from your stash and digital die cut files, like I did below.

See those cute little puffy heart and ladybug stickers? I snagged those in the craft section at Walmart. Aren’t they adorable?! I’ll definitely be going back for more. :)

Here is another page using this cute kit.

I had fun creating button polka dots on this side of the spread.

JanaEubank_Azure_2Smile2_600

 

And then added a few more buttons on the right side to balance things out. The photo corners on all of the photos are just made from coordinating cardstock, using a photo corner punch. I adhered them directly to the photos for a different look.

I have had so much fun with these cards! I’ll be sharing more Azure spreads with you sometime next week, but first, I’ll finish out this week with a couple more scrapbook pages.

See you next time!
