Using PL cards as anchors for embellishments

I'm not one on the forefront of trends.  You might call me a late adopter.  I just bought my first Project Life cards.

I have looked a them before.  I knew I didn't want to do the whole system but I liked some of the cards I was seeing I just never liked them enough to get a big kit or even a pack like they have a Michaels.  I found these from WR Memorykeepers the other day at Walmart and really liked the colors and designs.  Plus there were only 18 in the pack for $1.77.  Easy and cheap enough to experiment with.

For the layout, I used photos of my husband's family from his visit back home in June.  He sees his sister at least once a year and this year got to see quite a bit of the rest of the family. He will handwrite in the names.

The cards anchor each of the embellishment groups.  More detail is in this YouTube video:

And here is the sketch.  It is actually a 2 pager and I just used one page for this layout.

I'm hard at work on my 2014 Sketchbook which I plan to have out in early January.  I have one more process video for this year coming up next week.  We may sneak in a shopping video or something else too before the year winds down.

Thanks for visiting!


  1. Such a great way to use PL cards AND embellishments, Lisa!

  2. You might call me a late bloomer as well ;)
    I really like how you embellished the cards :)

  3. Love that page Lisa. I've bought a whole stack of PL stuff and don't think I've made a dent in my stash!
