Last Project Life Cards and Oops!

Ohmygoodness.  I sure hope you all haven’t made the same mistake I did.  I’ve been working so hard on making cards, I forgot to actually send them out.  *Blush*  I did send a few for Chanukah, but not nearly as many as I usually do.  I haven’t yet sent any cards to my friends who celebrate Christmas.  I am fixing this mistake TODAY!  Can you just see it — my stamp room full of holiday cards, none of which actually went out?  Luckily, there is still time to get them in the mail!

If you haven’t sent your cards out, let this be your reminder.  I can’t begin to tell you how much our cards are appreciated.  Often, I don’t find out till (litterally) years later when people tell me that my cards are cherished.  If you send yours out and don’t hear back, do NOT assume that your cards aren’t appreciated.  I’ve learned that not everyone takes the time to say something, but trust me, in our techie world, anything hand made is loved and cherished.
Here is my final card of the series.  Of course, I saved the best for last.  I adore this little ornament. projectlife10bgThis was the second easiest card of the series (after the tree card). I cut out the ornament and using dimensionals, adhered it to another Project Life piece.  I then added a few silver stars and ta da, done!

Okay!  I am off to go mail some cards.


You would never guess it!

Have you ever had a day where you could barely move?  Where even the simplest things seemed like too much?  That’s totally me today.  I feel like I’m moving through water.  I must need a few extra ZZZzzz’s, don’t you think?  To say I’m thrilled that I could “cheat” with my card for you is no exaggeration.  This card is also made from Project Life. I just cut a few things out, added a snowflake, doily, and ribbon, and bam, done!  Perfect for a lazy day  🙂

Tip: I like to use tombow (liquid glue) to put on my snowflakes.  I’ve had them crack using glue dots when I try to position them.

Also, even though the bow looks as though it is threaded through the snowflake, it isn’t.  I told you I was having a lazy day!  I tied it separately and then glued it to the snowflake 🙂  Much easier!


My daughter wanted to help me photograph it.

Easiest Project Life Card Ever

Good morning, friends.

The card below is seriously the easiest of all the Project Life Cards I’ve made. I just added some gold glitter, a little ribbon, and done!  It doesn’t get much easier than that.  The cool part is that it looks so elegant — I’d be proud to send this card out.


Have I inspired you yet to make some cards out of your Project Life supplies?

Good luck with all you your holiday preparations.  I know many of my friends are feeling a little stressed out right now.  I hope if you are feeling overwhelmed, you take some time to relax and also find some shortcuts.  I’m sending hugs and smiles.

This next card was a true hodge-podge!  I started by cutting the green sentiment out and adhering it over a large white space on the red card.  You would never guess, would you?  The background red is also Project Life.  I cut it into two pieces 1 inch thick and hid the seam with the front card.  I then put a little ribbon on it, glued everything together, added some gold stars, and quick as a wink, it was done!

Project Life Cards – Easy Creating!

Dear Friends,

This whole week I’m going to be featuring holiday cards I made QUICKLY using the Hello December 2015 Project Life Card Collection.


This project came about because a dear friend sent me this kit as a gift.  Instead of making an album with it, I had the idea to make it into holiday cards.  It always seems that no matter how many holiday cards I make, I never have enough.  The thought of making a whole bunch QUICKLY and easily was appealing, so I gave it a try.

I love the results!  I never had to even pick up a stamp and I had gorgeous, professional looking cards with only a little modification.


I love the clean and simple look of the card.  The only thing I added was some sparkle and a gold star at the top. I matted the project and made it pop by using the deep red colored card base.

Supplies Used:
Kit: Hello December 2015 Project Life Card CollectionAccessories: Gold Glitz Dazzling Details (133755), Gold Glimmer Paper (133719), Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack (133787)
Paper: Tip Top Taupe, Cherry Cobbler

Best wishes for a terrific week,


Project Life

When I first heard about Project Life, I was very excited.  I’ve been making cards for over 7 years.  But the thought of putting together a scrapbook page made me break out in a cold sweat.  I had no idea how to design a whole book of coordinating pictures.  It seemed like a huge daunting task, so I never tried it.

A few months ago I was introduced to Project Life as an EASY way to do memory keeping.  In a matter of minutes you could put together a lovely album.  Sign me up!!

I bought the supplies and other night I sat down to do it.  Let me tell you, friends, it took me longer to have the pictures printed then it did to make the album.  After a few minutes I got the hang of it.  I cut my pictures up, wrote a little something (I was NOT a perfectionist with my journaling) and put everything in the little pockets.  The best part — it is DONE!  In just four pages I got a ton of pictures and my summer vacation is documented.  I am more surprised then anyone.

Here are my pages
