Mandy's Project Life Weeks 11 & 12

Back again this week with another couple of ways to approach Project Life and great products that really work to keep it quick and simple!

Week 11
Boy, oh boy, how much do I love these .... 'WRMK's Albums Made Easy'! (title and journaling cards)
The ones I've used below are called 'Memo' and you can buy it as a full kit with many repeating cards OR what I really love is the Mini-kit which Lee-Anne has fabulously divided up so no card repeats Image :biggrin: :P :lol: (21 cards of 4x6, 37 cards of 3x4's) and for $6.50 great value! There are other WRMK ranges of these cards and you can find them HERE. This is the first time I've worked with pre-made cards and it was soooo quick and easy! I wanted to tell the tale of two feral cats who are leading very different lives, yet both started out the same - using a colour for each cat - keeping the subjects separate, yet coming together on the one page. (you could use this idea to separate any subjects on one page :wink: )

To add a little bit more theme to the page, used Tim Holtz Brick Wall Die and pressed out all the 'brick' part and put it aside leaving the negative bit to use.
Other Products:
Teresa Collins Far & Away Alpha Stickers
Authentique 'Delightful' Alpha Stickers
Prima Flutter Bits Doodle Deux
Stazon Jet Black Ink

Week 12
Simple Stories is another wonderful brand that makes Project Life so easy. The page insert gives a big space to scrap upon with 12x6, and below - three portrait 4x6's. Simple Stories makes 12x12's with these sizes to cut up to fit these spaces easily :P Love my alpha dies too - for this page I've used Tim Holtz Chip Block alpha

Other Products:
Simple Stories 100 Days of Summer Page Elements
Simple Stories 100 Days of Summer Card Elements
Simple Stories 100 Days of Summer Stickers
Prima Rusty Bucket Ink
MME Lost & Found 'Just and Ordinary Day' Title
MME Lost&Found Ruby Chipboard Elements (little hint- for the PL albums, some chipboard stickers can be too thick for the album especially trying to keep things simple - what you can do is separate some of the layers of cardboard under the image and pull apart making it thinner :wink: )
MME Lost&Found Oliver Buttons
Red Cardstock (for the alpha die)
Don't forget to check Becky Higgins new range of
