Project Life - Seasonal Snapshot 2015

Have you tried Project Life yet???  I have to admit that I was a bit hesitant, scared and intimidated when Stampin' Up! first started carrying Project Life. I was used to, and comfortable with, scrapbooking in the "normal" way!  But once I started playing with the awesome kits that SU! carries for Project Life, I was hooked.

Last month I was chosen by my upline, Janet Wakeland, to be a display stamper using the Seasonal Snapshot 2015 kit.  This kit is in the current 2015 Holiday catalog and covers all fall/winter holidays!!  When you purchase all of the coordinating products:  the stamp set, card collection and accessory pack, you can do so much!

I love the versatility of this kit.  From school days to Christmas, you can do so many different things! The projects I have here give you a sample of what can be done!

The first project is a Halloween card using the popped out pieces from the pumpkin wood shape.  The pumpkin was cut with the 3" circle framelit and ran through the big shot with the Woodgrain embossing folder.  I wanted to mimic the texture on pumpkins.  The bats are in the stamp set and were stamped in black Staz on on Blackberry Bliss.  A piece of the corrugated Crumb Cake paper for the stem and Old Olive leaves punched from the Builder Bird punch.

I used the new Whisper White thick cardstock for the base, spritzed some Pumpkin Pie color on the background and accented it with the fabulous Black Glimmer paper!   Perfect Halloween card!

My next project shows a traditional Project Life page.  I used our wedding pics since we did get married in September, which technically is in fall!

But what this really shows, is how super easy it is to complete a page using the Project Life kits.  I used items from all the items available with the bundle.  The Project Life cards make it quick and easy to assemble your page and then using some specialty paper adds to it.  It's hard to see in the picture, but the black piece was embossed with the Woodland embossing folder.  Wooden leaves adhered to the outside of the pages just enhance the dimension of the page.

Hope you enjoyed your stop on my blog during this month's tour!!  Up next on the tour is Audra Monk!  You can click on the icon below to take you there.
