Scrapbook Therapy: Project Life cards

With Project Life taking over papercrafting like a whirlwind, most collections have added 3×4 and 4×6 cut apart sheets. Even most of the kit clubs are now offering Project Life subscriptions like Cocoa Daisy, Studio Calico and Citrus Twist. With all of these Project Life card options, I have accumulated quite the stash. Now, I am a bit of a Project Life fail and as a result I really needed to start incorporating these Project Life cards into my regular scrapbooking.  So I sat in my chair in my scrapbook room and started my therapy session. Pulled out My Mind’s Eye Collectable, some Studio Calico Project Life, searched through the various 3×4 cards available on the Silhouette online store and went to work.

Underneath that third 3×4 card which was from a Studio Calico project life kit, is a wonderful cut file  (Flat bag with bracket tab) from Lori Whitlock that can be found on the Silhoette online store.

I am a pretty slow scrapbooker. A layout takes me about a day and half. This hobby overall is my life’s therapy so I take the credo of you cannot rush creativity. This layout, however, came together very quickly once I realized I wanted to put the focus on those 3×4 cards. This was a lot of fun but as therapy sessions go- there is still more work to be done.

Thanks for stopping by. More to come. Celia
