Project Life by Stampin' Up!

It's HERE, it's HERE!!! I was so excited about this new line by Stampin' Up! that I put in my demo preorder the first morning it was available- and then anxiously tracked the delivery online. I couldn't wait to get it :) It was scheduled to arrive Friday- so all day long I ran to the front door everytime I thought I heard the delivery truck. My hubby actually made it home from work before it arrived, and then laughed at my antics and said he had never seen me so 'geeked out' (his description, not mine) and excited about an order before :)

Once it finally got here I had to tear into it right away! Which is no small feat with an almost 1 yr old trying to eat everything I unpacked :) My pictures for the album had even come in the mail earlier that day too so I was able to start sticking them right in. I was a happy camper Friday night :)

My plan for the Project Life album = get those pictures off my phone and into a format where they can be enjoyed! It's going to be my life on the go book. I even designed my own title page inserts (using the wonderful MDS) to match the Everyday Life kit. I will be sure to share pictures once I get the page put together. :)

Here is the first layout I finished Saturday during the kids' short nap. Yes, I finished a layout during a nap. Whoopie! It was so fast- I think I'm in love!

These are my January pictures. I selected cards that had the black/yellow theme for this layout, mostly because I really liked that title card. Of course I still need it to say January- totally kicking myself for not ordering the calendar stamps in the preorder! So learn the lesson from me the hard way- you are going to want those calendar stamps. You may 'think' you will figure out a different method, but it will never be as fast as just using those stamps. And Project Life is all about fast, so they are going to be perfect. I know what I'm getting in my next order :)

I also wanted to show you a close up of this embellishment. The Everyday Life stickers are a nice heavy cardstock. I felt that they would stand up to some abuse without being covered by a page protector, so I was able to adhere it on the outside. It helps give some dimention to the page and breaks up the building block look just a tiny bit. I really loved the way it turned out!

Oh, I should also mention- everything here is from the Project Life preorder except the rhinestones (which would be the first thing I would add to the kit) the button and string (which I had lying around in my SU! stash) and the small black circle of cardstock that I added for a little extra dimention. All of which are not needed, but I felt that they dressed it up just a little more. I love that this kit was made to coordinate with SU! products which makes that possible :)

Hope you liked your first look at the Project Life kit by Stampin' Up! I'll be sure to share more in the future. Let me know if you are intersted in this method of scrapbooking and I'll be sure to help you get started ;)

Flutterby again soon!
