Celebrate Every Day Layout

Phew, what a busy few days.  It was OnStage time again at the weekend so I got to spend Friday evening & all day Saturday in the company of a hundred or so demonstrators from around New Zealand as we learned about the new Annual Catalogue arriving soon!  More details about that later in the week.  Today I wanted to share a scrapbooking layout I completed recently.  I wanted to show how you could combine traditional scrapbooking with Project Life in albums.  I used the Celebrate Every Day Project Life by Stampin’ Up! card collection and added a few other elements to tie the 2 pages together:
Celebrate Everyday Double_PLXSU_Magpiecreates
This is the double page spread, showing the traditional page on the left with the Project Life page on the right.

I used cards from the collection to create a colourful grid-like base under the main image – no cutting required, just line them up haphazardly until you are happy with the result.  The ‘Oh So Happy’ Title is also a card from the collection that I just cut down to fit the space.  The use of Crumb Cake for the background toned down the bright cards, and I then carried some over into the pocket page as well to help link the layouts together.

This is all cards from the collection except for the Crumb Cake one in the middle which I purpose cut.  I also carried other elements over from the main layout – the diecut words, some background stamping on the Crumb Cake and the addition of Enamel Shapes in coordinating colours.  As you can see I still need to do some journalling, but hey, at least these 7 year old photos have finally made it into an album!
You may have heard recently that Stampin’ Up! and Project Life are parting ways. Yes it’s true, the partnership is ending with this catalogue. If there’s a collection you like, I strongly recommend you get it now! And stay tuned: there will be incredible new products in our new catalogue beginning on 1 June!
