project life ~ heidi swapp


I love Project Life.  I love the concept of the pockets and the story or event all right there with plenty of spaces for journaling. I love it when I'm caught up! but I love too just to pick up right where I am at and tell a story.

But...(and this said emphatically)...but what I really this right here. When these guys pull an album down and look through the stories and laugh out loud or ask questions and just simply respond to the words and photos spread in front of them. This I love.

Today, along with Lindsay over on her blog, we are sharing a look at a Project Life® page using Heidi Swapp's September Skies kits. What lovely lovely kits these are to the Project Life® family. Probably one of my favorites.

This is a personal blog. All editorial content and projects are intellectual property of I do receive financial compensation and material product from American Crafts to develop my craft posts, but all ideas and opinions are my own. 

The Core Kit is filled with 576 cards. A mix of 6x4 and 3x4. AND...there are glittered cards that are beautiful!

There is also a Value Kit. This is where it gets really fun. This kit is full of clear elements including 3x4 cards. Gold foil on the 6x4 cards. Plus, plus...PLUS...clear words and cardstock die cuts. This is what I'm talkin' about.

There are plenty of glittery pieces that are part of these kits. But I took to some of the more masculine hues with a subtle touch of blush. These are photos from a family event a few months back. I can't adore these photos of these guys more. Although not working PL2015 album in order right now, these needed to get in our book quick fast and in a hurry.

The page holds a couple of 6x4, a few 3x4, and even a 3x2 sized photo. These are some of my go-to sizes for Project Life®. I added label pieces right on photos. I layered 3x4 clear cards over 3x4 photos. Just a few ways to add a little fancy to these photos.

The kits include floral die cuts that I adhered to the outside of this pocket.

Something else making me really happy here is the use of the Project Life® Fuse Tool. Here you can see how it is used as a simple overlay where ephemera pieces are added to the pocket and the pocket fused to the page.

Here the Fuse Tool was used to add a 3x4 pocket in which there is a photo. And the pocket underneath is home to a journal card with additional documentation.

And one last thing found here are some layering techniques. One of my ways with pocket pages is to have at least one pocket with lots of embellishments found as a sort of focal point.

But wait...there's more!!! For you today is a free downloadable pdf so that you can make exactly what you see here. Click here and print it out. And be sure to go grab Lindsay's printable too!
