12 x 12″ Project Life

September 16, 2016

Tonight is my Memory Keeping Class and I thought I would share with you the page that everyone will be able to make.  Of course they can if they wish use the pieces any way they want to.  I found a double page scrapbook sketch on Pinterest which suited the photos that I had and would accommodate some of the cards from the beautiful Hello Lovely Project Life Card Collection.

I cut one of the 6″ x 4″ cards into four pieces 2″ x 3″ each.  I attached one piece to the top of my Basic Black page and one at the bottom to create my banner. 012blurred-face No-one can see that the piece doesn’t go all the way and still gives the proper effect.  You do need to take your time to line up the pieces but that’s easy with out grid paper.  The photos and Project Life cards are layered onto Crumb Cake card and added to the page.  My title is cut from Whisper White card using the retired Timeless Type Alphabet.

Usually when I make a layout like this I use a pocket page for the second layout, however, this time I only had a couple of extra photos from our weekend away with Ava and so I used the sketch to create the complimentary 12 x 12″ page.  013blurred-faceThe second half of the layout also uses Basic Black and Crumb Cake card.  I added  a couple of strips of the Washi Tape which comes in the Hello Lovely  Project Life Accessory Pack across the top.  This time my title  is cut from Basic Black card using the Large Letters Framelits Dies.  I used one more of the 2″ x 3″ pieces to create the banner behind my photo.  For a bit of fun I used some of the images from the Day at the Beach stamp set (only available in Australia and New Zealand – item No. 142261) to complete the page.  The images were stamped onto Whisper White card using Stazon Jet Black ink and coloured using Stampin’ Write Markers in colours to match the Hello Lovely Card Collection (Crumb Cake, Old Olive, Peekaboo Peak, Soft Sky and Tangerine Tango).

I love how these pages have turned out and now all I have to do is add my journaling tonight.
