PL Organization

Hello there, Cristina here to share with you a Project Life organization tip. I recently started to buy more of my project life kits along with some other brands and I just could know longer store them in my cabinet with the original boxes. I decided to look in to storage cases but was having a hard time because most don't have dividers or removable dividers. I did see that Close To My Heart has one for PL but I really didn't want to order them. I happen to be at JoAnn and came across this container. I was able to remove the dividers so I decided to buy it and see if it would work. Well I cant say it absolutely worked but it did the job for now. I was able to put in 5 of my core kits.   The only problem I have is not being able to close the lid, BUT it really doesn't bother me because it will just be sitting on my desk anyways. It is a great container though so I may just end up buying one more. This is a good way to organize your cards and have them to your reach
Hello scrappy and crafty friends. Barbara here today with a simple mixed media card for you. TIP- when you want to do mixed media on cardstock start with a thin layer of white gesso on your cardstock. It helps the paper stand up to the dampness better. Here is the card I made for you today white cardstock 5 x 7 film from Bo Bunny flowers from petaloo gems various gelattos in gold and blue baby wipes distress ink in gathered twigs, vintage photo and rusty hinge bubble wrap or other textures for stamping adhesive-liquid glass Paint your white cardstock with a thin layer of white gesso and let dry completely. Add some color with gelatos and spread with baby wipes ink the edge of the card with vintage photo ink and spread with baby wipes stamp randomly with gathered twigs and mute by wiping with baby wipes I then had a small area where the sentiment goes that was plain white so I used a baby wipe to pick up some rusty hinge distress ink and blend it

Adoption Day

Good Morning Everyone!! Cristina here to bring you a special PL layout I recently made using the Project Life Midnight Edition Core Kit.

I had been thinking about getting a small dog for some time and just wasn't to sure. We ended up at PetSmart twice that weekend and finally there he was just waiting for me. Products Used: PL Midnight Studio Calico - wood veneer Tim Holtz - word clip Recollections - cork letters I hope your enjoyed today's project too.
