Memory Keeping Facebook Group Now Open!

Memory Keeping Facebook GroupHi Everyone! I'm so happy to announce that teammate Jackie Howell and I have launched a Facebook Group that celebrates Memory Keeping! It can be hard to get started OR stay motivated…and that's where we can help!

Jackie is AWESOME at journaling her family's life. I want to be just like her when I grow up! And she will show us her approach to using Project Life by Stampin' UP! and Memory Keeping.

I do this too! Although I admit, Jackie's children are much cuter than my husband and his fishing buddies LOL We both will be showing pages we create in hopes that you see how easy and affordable this kind of memory keeping can be!

Project Life ‘ing My Party!

DSCN4442Hi Everyone! What do you get when you bring together stampers, a few props, and willingness to get silly? Some pretty fun photos!

At my recent Stampin' UP! party, I showed how easy it is to use Project Life by Stampin' UP! We took the pictures before the party, the hostess's hubby got them printed and brought them back. Then demonstrated how quickly you could make a cute page using Everyday Adventure Card Collection 135298 and the Design 1 12" x 12" Project Life Photo Pocket Pages 135295.


At home, I added elements from the Everyday Adventure Project Life Accessory Pack 135301. You'll also note I trimmed some photos and layers with MATCHING Stampin' UP! cardstock and Designer Paper. {love!} Time to assemble? Inserting the photos and inserts maybe 5 minutes. Coming back and adding the accessories – 20 minutes. (would have been less if I didn't trim and mat some of the photos)

Here's how it looks without the props:

Project Life by Stampin’ UP! My 10 Minute Double-Page Layouts

DSCN4330Hi Everyone! First..are these not the cutest of the cutie-pies!? My great-nephews 🙂

I'm Project Lifing (new verb LOL) once a week. And I Facebook stalk my family for photos. {smile} When I came upon my nephews' fun day, I just had to PL it!

MY GOAL – get the photos and journaling done – then go back to embellish if desired.

Here's my method – no right or wrong. And it takes me 10 minutes to do!

  • Upper Left Hand Corner – Title Page
  • Insert Photos – trim if needed.
  • Pick inserts – journal at least once on page.
  • Done! Click on thumbnails to see progress.
