Hi!! Stephanie creates such beautiful Project Life spreads and I am excited that she is sharing one with us today!! I am a BIG fan of these smaller pocket pages where each pocket is 3×3! Each little square is just so much fun to fill and it allows room to play with different things like filling a pocket with sequins and other transparent elements! Read on to see exactly how Stephanie created these stunning pages!!
Hey there!! Stephanie here with you today to share a Project Life spread I put together using lots of the beautiful Styleboard collection! I have used almost every bit of this beautiful collection, so I’m down to my paper scraps, 6×6 paper pad and a handful of embellishments! I always save anything larger than about 3 inches, so putting together this Project Life spread was a piece of cake!
For this spread, I used a divided page protector with 3×3 inch pockets. I love the uniformity of this page protector and filling in the smaller pockets is so fun and easy!
I started by printing off my photos at 3×3 inches with a small white border. I slipped those into the pockets and then dug out my scraps and paper pad to trim down some papers for my pockets. I also had a few extra journaling cards in my stash, so I trimmed those down to 3 inches, as well, so I could use those throughout my spread.
I used a few of the Styleboard transparencies and I think they make awesome additions to a Project Life album! I love how they give a little peek-a-boo to the next page in my book. I used one transparency to add “Sept” for September and then typed some journaling onto another trimmed transparency.
As you can see, I didn’t have a photo for each and every pocket, and I’m totally okay with that! I love adding in cards, tags, sequins and paper into my spread. I think it helps my photos pop from the pockets.
I typed my journaling directly onto the patterned paper or journaling cards by rolling them right through my typewriter. I love my typewriter and probably wouldn’t journal much in my album with it! 🙂
I had an empty pocket on my page, so I decided to use some of the Styleboard sequins to add a little movement and interest to that plain pocket! Just like the transparencies, I love the peek-a-boo effect it creates in my book.
The Styleboard papers are so pretty that they can totally stand all alone in a pocket. I also decorated a few of them with tags, wood veneer and some of the Styleboard embellishments (card stock & chipboard).
And there you have it! Fast, easy and fun! I bet you have plenty of Styleboard scraps in your craft area that would work perfectly for a Project Life spread, don’t you??
