I hope you've heard the news about Stampin' Up! partnering with Becky Higgins and Project Life. I was so excited and hope it's going to help me catch up on my scrapbooking. On Monday, demonstrators were able to order the first Project Life product which will be available to you on May 1st. I am anxious to see the digital downloads in June as I think I'll like those too. Anyway, my order arrived and I've been dying to try it out. Last night I sat down and printed off pictures of Monkey, my grandson Tucker's BFF, to scrapbook. I didn't have much time as I'm working on two projects for friends that I have to have completed by Friday. Well, let me tell you, Project Life is quick! I put this page together in about 15 minutes. It's not elaborate by any means but I think that's the beauty of Project Life, you can make it simple or as elaborate as you like. The part that took the longest for me was choosing the cards I wanted to use and rounding all the corners. I'm going to need more practice taking pictures of pages with page protectors on them. I can usually just pull a page out of a page protector to photograph. That's one thing you can't do with Project Life. Here's my first Project Life page...
Monkey was left behind when Tucker went home. I found him in the basement and decided to have fun with him. I took pictures of Monkey doing various things the rest of the week and texted them to my daughter who showed them to Tucker. He loved seeing all the things Monkey did and even commented to Meghan, "Monkey is having the best Spring Break ever"! I've documented this on the top card. On the bottom card I numbered the things he did with a short description. I also put a coordinating number on each picture using some of the triangle stickers included in the PL Accessory Pack. The coordinating framelits were used to cut out the title "Monkey Business
I hope you're as excited about Project Life as I am! Since I've got another project I need to complete today I'm going to attempt to get the other Monkey pictures scrapped today. I think I can as quickly as this page went together. You'll know if I was successful tomorrow! Thanks for stopping by today. - Dawn
