Blossom Builder Punch and Project Life

Our daughter got married last February and I wanted to savory the special memories by scrap booking it.  Not only do you create memories that can last a life time but you also get to relive the wonderful moments.

Several Years ago Stampin' Up! partnered with Becky Higgins the creator of Project Life ®.  Project Life is an ultra-simple solution for getting your photos out of your boxes, off your computer or phone phone and in an album to share and enjoy. 

Gone are the days of spending months and sometimes years on a photo album.  With project life in a simple afternoon or weekend you can complete and amazing book of cherished memories.  

You simply add some artfully-designed Project Life cards into our Photo Pocket Pages along with your treasured photos and you’re done! 

Of course I can't leave it at that - as embellishing is my favorite part.   But I can add embellishments as I have time and my album still looks complete.  

Here is one of the wedding pages I recently completed and embellished.

Sometimes you don't need words to tell the story. 
Here is my husband with our daughter and our son-in-law Gene with is mother Margie, as they start the evening of dancing.

The flower was stamped with the Bunch of Blossoms stamp set and punched out using the Blossom Builder Punch.  This set is super easy to use with the photopolymer see through stamps you can line up the triple stamping easy peasy.  And let the punch take you into the 3d dimension.

Gift Bow Bigs Die Bow Builder Punch www.stampstodiefor.com

I am going to share with you my photo album I made using some left over elements from Project Life® by Stampin' Up! Little Moments that I used for our First Grandson's Scrapbook.  I used the little brag book I received from Susan that I shared with you a few weeks ago.

Project Life by Stampin Up

On the inside cover I just place a photo of the cute bow and tag that came on the gift so I could remember it forever.

 

Project Life by Stampin Up   1

No baby book is complete with out the Date, Time, Weight and Length.  I just filled in the blanks and slipped in the page.

 

Project Life by Stampin Up 2

On this page I just journal-ed his name, embellished with a heart that I had punched out from one of the cards and slid it into the pocket.

 

Project Life by Stampin Up 5

I added a little stampin on this page.  I stamped the little onesie from the "Something for Baby"  in So Saffron and then stamped the little heart in Pumpkin Pie.  No fussy cutting for this stamp set,  I just simply cut it out with the coordinating Baby's First Framelits Dies   and my Big Shot.

 

Project Life by Stampin Up 6

On this page I just added a few embellishments that I cut out of some of the other cards in the kit and added them to the 4" x 6" cards with dimensionals and slid them in the pockets.

 

Project Life by Stampin Up Sisters

For these pages I added a little Journaling and some wooden embellishments from the accessory pack.   Liam has two sisters that are very excited to have a little brother.

 

Project Life by Stampin Up 7

This one I just added some decorative corners.  L to R: Me & (the star of this book) Liam, Grandpa, our Son Paul (Liam's Uncle),  his wife Maria (Liam's Aunt).

 

Project Life by Stampin Up 8

Let's not forget the proud father Eugene - with a house full of girls he is very excited to have another "guy" around. 

 

Project Life by Stampin Up 9

These pictures say it all so I just added a little title.

Here are his sister's on their first day of school which was the same day he came home from the hospital.  The picture on the right is our Beautiful Daughter Danielle excited to take the new little package home.

It was fun to share some of my family excitement with you this month. 

I created this little brag book in under an hour with the Project Life® by Stampin' Up! Little Moments.  It is a kit from last year but there are lots of fun new kits ready to help you make a memorable scrapbook about your family fun and events.

The New Stampin' Trimmer

The other day talking i was chatting with one of my customers and she was telling me how much she loved the new Stampin' Trimmer.  It is a must for stampers as well as scrapbookers.  It is perfect to have on your table while your work.  Although paper trimmers are a common crafting tool, this trimmer was designed exclusively by paper crafters for paper crafters-and because it was made by Stampin' Up!, you know it's a cut above the rest!  

 

While I don't get to scrapbook as often as I would like to, it is something I enjoy very much. My focus has been more on our Grandchildren the past few years.  Here is our youngest Isaac he is almost walking!  Hard to imagine in a few months he will already be a year old.

Flags a flying 8 x 8
