We realized a great accomplishment at my day-job this week & so I've been making gratitude cards this weekend. All of them used the Gratitude for Days stamp set from Stampin up. They also all used some seam binding ribbon, but I sprayed it (and the cards) with color shine (a non-stampin up product by Heidi Swapp). The patterned paper I used is from an old stack in my stash. I just loved the colors and felt it would make for pretty cards:)
Rather than using an envelope for this 5 x 5 card, I created a pocket out of the patterned paper by cutting a 6 x 12 sheet of it, folding in half and then making a slit for the card to tuck in. I also stamped a on it...loved the way the slash border from the Gratitude for Days Stamp Set framed the pocket.

Becky Higgins' Project Life has revolutionized my memory keeping & has got me back some precious precious time because it makes it so much simpler & quicker than traditional scrapbooking or digital memory keeping even!! Looking forward to my mini-album class that I'm giving next week where we're going to make a mini album using the Love Story collection as featured above...we'll be making 6x8 pages, the video feature a beautiful 12 x 12 wedding picture spread. And, Love Story isn't just for weddings & romantic stories, the black & white cards work well with almost any kind of pictures you have...I'm telling the story of a recent mountain getaway in my mini album with it:)
So, what are you waiting for, get those memories off of your digital camera/phone/computer and into your albums with Project Life! (& contact me if you're interested in trying out SU's new PL line of products:)
