When I first embarked upon Project Life (a whole two months or so ago) I didn't have any kits and so I had a go at making the cards using my existing stash. I used a Crate Paper 12 by 12 pad so that it all co-ordinated already. I chose a red and navy blue palette to go with the colours we were wearing in the photos.
This is the first week in September 2013 when we went to visit my sister and her husband in Scotland - with a two month old baby. We were quite adventurous in those early days.
The main accents used are washi tape, stickers and I even embossed some of the Amy Tangerine stamps for a pop of gold. I like the look of the title going across the card and into the picture as it adds continuity to the layout.
Isn't this picture of The Baby on the motorbike the cutest? I loved him in that red polka dot sleepsuit (even if it was a girls one - handed down from a friend!) Certain outfits make you really nostalgic for the early days.
I also experimented with a see through pocket and used a heart doilie as this worked well on both sides of the pocket - as you can see below.
For the other side I used some Blush cards - this is such a cute line with all the hearts and fake washi tape. I love the colour palette too and a lot of the phrases work well if you cut them out and use them as accents.
I adore the glitter peg and the Studio Calico stamps on the maybe card.
So there you have it - you can mix and match
your stash to create a really personal layout to you.
