I’ve fallen head over heels for Project Life. Being a busy, full-time working mom of two and a wife, I just don’t have as much time to create memory books like I used to. I really like the simplicity of the Project Life clear pages. I wanted to show our readers that you can create the quick and easy Project Life page but still give your pages an artistic spin.
The clear pages I used are from the American Crafts Project Life Photo Pocket Pages Big Variety 1 pack. The album I decided to use is the American Crafts Project Life Album 12 X 12 Kraft Edition which coordinates perfectly with the color palette I chose for my pages.
I wanted to use a simple color palette for some baby pages of my son, so I decided to print out some pictures in black and white and then incorporate a soft sea foam style green, and just a hint of brown here and there. On various cards from the American Crafts Project Life Core Kit Midnight Edition, I painted small areas straight onto the cards using a green paint. I used sea foam green acrylic paint I had at home, but you can easily mix your own sea foam green by mixing some green and white acrylic paints together.
I basically spent just a short amount of time arranging the elements and figuring out what cards would go where. In addition to the green paint, I added some simple French text from our new French Flea Market Serendipity Scrap Paper Packs, stamping, chevron washi tape, math graphic washi tape, and cards. I also added some fun journaling touches using the American Crafts Project Life Journal Pens, baby footprints, and an ultrasound picture and hospital bracelet.
Create your very own Project Life pages in no time, just like I did, using these great products by American Crafts and other companies.
