Through Project Life, I am able to use this as an outlet to create mini scrapbook cards. Honestly, with work, running a business, organizing a wedding and back in school, this is such an easy way for me to get a piece of crafting in my daily life. After working with 12x12 Project Life pages in 2012, it felt overwhelming for me. I thought to myself, why not work with smaller pages I usually create. Then I saw a blogger, Jamaica Makes create some awesome P.L. pages in a smaller format and I was instantly excited because she was creating my kind of pages. I design mini journals monthly so why not make a huge project the size I'm comfortable with. I love that Studio Calico started carrying 6x8 page protectors, then I found some by Simple Stories on Ebay and I found out that Martha Stewart designed some too that are available at Staples. This made me so ready to start creating. I prepared by collecting my page protectors last month and created a simple system (in which I will share very soon here on the blog) that allows me to work on a card daily which can include journaling, photography or even a quote. I feel no pressure at all because this is just glitter and paper I'm working with, it's not that serious.
Since I'm also a jewelry/paper goods designer and preparing for a wedding this year, Project Life allows me to utilize my pages as a place to add my inspirations from magazines, online findings, and even fabric swatches for my wedding dress.
I've decided to share my pages weekly on my blog and you can also check out my gallery on Studio Calico.
