I have something a little different for you today: a Project Life style scrapbook page celebrating Gratitude. This is our monthly challenge over on the Memory Keeping with Project Life Stampin' Up! Facebook Group (MKPLSU), and I have some lovely Stampin' Up! Demonstrator friends from around the world participating, and you can visit them too.
Scrapbooking is very much about journalling to me, and with a subject as close to my heart as being thankful, there was no stopping me! I decided to make the three 4x6 pockets journalling blocks and just journaled until they were full. That gave me room for 55 things. I stamped some of my individual thank you stamps in Smoky Slate over the top of the journalling, and mounted the journalling on cardstock to match the Everyday Adventure Card Collection. I also popped some In Color sequins into the journalling pockets and sealed the tops of those pockets using clear labels from the office store, so the sequins dont fall out. Sequins are great to add some interest to journalling pockets because you can move them around and still read the journalling! The rest of the pockets were filled with stamping, and quotes I love about being thankful and happy.
For these two pocket cars I started with blank grid cards. The stamps are all from Stampin' Up!'s Gratitude for Days stamp set (see links below) which is a photopolymer set and easy to place exactly where you want. On the top left of the photo card that is a combination of 2 stamps in the set, but I love how they work together. On the right hand side I have stamped 'gratitude' onto washi tape to highlight the word (used Stazon). The rest of the title was made with my dymo, which I haven't used for ages, but is good to mix things up a bit!
The two base cards here are from Stampin' Up!'s Everyday Adventure Card Collection. I've just added some patterned paper to the card on the left and some washi tape, rhinestones and a favourite Winnie the Pooh quote on the right hand card. On several of the cards I have hand-drawn a border using my project life journalling pens.
These are two more base cards from the Everyday Adventure set, with a couple of my favourite printable quotes from Pintrest.
