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!
