Project Life Page

Hello everyone! Tammy Roberts here with you today and I am bringing you a Project Life layout. If you are doing Project Life 2013 or just looking for a different way to add your photos to your albums, this is for you! Sizzix has so many dies to make your pages come to life.

You will need two 4 X 6 photos, then cut four 3 X 4 and two 4 X 6 journaling cards from your favorite patterned paper (mine is from Prima). Use a rounded corner punch on all four corners of each card and photos. Machine stitch around all the journaling cards except for one of the 4 X 6's.

The next four photos are using the 3 X 4 journaling cards. The first one, simply apply the word "favorite" rub on in the middle of the card (mine is from American Crafts).

Adhere a wooden heart to the left of the card. Stick a word sticker the letter "i" just to the right of the wooden heart and make a little machine stitch across the top. Using the Movers & Shapers Die - Mini Butterflies, die cut one butterfly from felt and staple the butterfly in the lower right corner of card. Adhere a piece of washi tape in the top right corner of card.

Adhere word stickers "and" to the top of card, then staple across the top of letters. Adhere three wooden hearts as shown in photo.

Using the Thinlits Die Set - Arrows, Banners, Chevrons, Cloud, die cut an arrow from felt. Adhere, pointing the arrow to the left towards the left top corner of the card. Stamp the sentiment just below the arrow. Adhere the metal embellishment number "9" and word stickers "at".

Use the journaling card that you DID NOT stitch around for these instructions. From the Thinlits Die Set - Retro Camera, Icons, die cut the sweet little camera from patterned paper, adhering the circle with heart (from the same set) in the center of the camera. Adhere the camera in the center of the journaling card. Using the Alphabet Die - Word Play, die cut letters to spell "snap shots" from patterned paper. Adhere the letters to the top and bottom of the card then, machine stitch a straight line across the middle of each word.

Using the Sizzlets Die - Card, Scallop Circle Insert, die cut the circle from patterned paper and adhere to the center of the journaling card. From the Tiny Tabs & Tags Die, die cut the file tab and insert a word sticker (cherish) in the window. Adhere it to the left lower corner of the journaling card and machine stitch. Add a photo to a resin frame embellishment (prima) and adhere to the center of the scalloped circle. Die cut another butterfly from patterned paper with the Movers & Shapers Die - Mini Butterflies. Adhere the butterfly to the lower left of the resin frame and staple in the center of the butterfly. Adhere a wooden heart below the butterfly. Lastly, adhere a piece of lace in the lower right corner of the journaling card adding a piece of washi tape on top of the lace.

On the photos, I added a piece of lace down the right sides adhering the lace on the back side.

Now, just add the cards to the photo sleeve and enjoy!

Have a fabulous day...

  1. This is gorgeous, Tammy! I am always amazed at how you can combine colors, elements and textures to create such a pretty vintage feel. Amazing!

  2. Wooow! This is gorgeous! Love the project life!

  3. I think this is a work of art and am hoping to scrap lift later today. Thank you for sharing your artwork for those of us just trying keep up!

  4. Although I love giveaways, sometimes I am glad to see a post without one. It gives me a chance to let the designer know how much I appreciate their work without an ulterior motive. This page is marvelous! The colors are subtle and just right for the pictures. The embellishments are lovely-each one a little work of art in itself, and yet they showcase the photos in the same way the setting of a ring allows the beauty of the gem to sparkle and take center stage. Great job!

  5. Beautiful page Tammy! So many super sweet details and the photos are wonderful.

  6. Ooooooooh, you are close to making me wish to begin scrapping! Not quite, as I know my limits ... but this is beautifully tempting! ;)


We'd love to hear from you!
