Stampin’ Up! Inspiration Saturday!

Stampin’ Up! Inspiration Saturday!

Hello friends! I’m Jennifer, a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator and 2017 Artisan Design team member from New Jersey. I am excited to share some fun projects with you this month.

I had some cute pictures of my kids that I wanted to frame. So instead of simply putting them in a frame, I wanted to jazz them up a little bit. I knew that Project Life would be perfect for this! The kit that I used was the Hello Lovely Project Life Card Collection and the Hello Lovely Project Life Accessory Pack. The colors in this kit are fabulous!


Both of these scrapbook pages are 8 x 10 so they will fit nicely in a frame. I am not much of a scrapbooker but I like to make single pages that I can frame (my house is full of gallery walls)! The Project Life kits make this so easy since everything coordinates and the embellishments give it that extra touch.


For this page of my daughter, I used several of the cards from the Hello Lovely Project Life Card Collection. I layered them on top of Peekaboo Peach cardstock. If you notice on the top and bottom corner, I also used one of the sayings from the All Things Thanks stamp set. It’s great to be able to combine stamping with scrapbooking. A fun little touch was using one of the acetate specialty cards as an overlay for the picture. You can see below where I lifted it up.


Then the finishing touches were some sequins and other embellishments from the Hello Lovely Project Life Accessory Pack. I also added a pretty bow using Whisper White Thick Baker’s Twine.


For my son’s page, I again used several of the cards. This time I took two of the black and white crosses cards and two of the stripe cards to cover more of the Pool Party cardstock. By gluing them next to each other they each look like one big card. I added some stamping on this page as well with the All Things Thanks stamp set. The finishing touches were more embellishments from the Hello Lovely Project Life Accessory Pack.


Since I was really enjoying this kit, I wanted to make cards as well since card making is what I do most. This kit is great for cards because you just need a few extra items to make some beautiful cards.

For all of the cards I used the All Things Thanks stamp set and the stamps included in the Hello Lovely Project Life Accessory Pack. All the cards used Pool Party cardstock as the base.


For this card, I used the super pretty floral card in the background and layered another smaller card on top. The middle layer is actually the part that I cut off from the black floral card. Since the Project Life cards are 4 x 6, they are a little too long for my cards. So I reused that extra ¾ of an inch piece in the center of the card. Can’t let anything go to waste!! I stamped the sentiment on Peekaboo Peach cardstock that was die cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies. I added more embellishments and a bow with Basic Black Solid Baker’s Twine.


This card uses many of the same techniques that I used on the first card. Since there are so many fun patterned cards to choose from, each card looks different but uses many of the same techniques to put it together. This makes card making super simple!!


For the final card, I again used several of the cards from the kit. The So Sweet card is found in the Accessory Pack. How cute it that! The “hello” stamp is found in the accessory pack. Since the full stamp says “Hello Lovely” and I only wanted to use hello, I used my Basic Black Stampin’ Write marker to only color “hello” to stamp, so I colored just the word with marker. I did this same technique with “you’re”. This word comes from the All Things Thanks stamp set. I finished it off with some sequins and a pretty bow.

I hope you enjoyed all of the fun projects you can make with a Project Life kit." ~ Jennifer
