Here’s a look at how I used the Project Life kit:
A little bit of travel and lots of love with the kids this week.
Those geotag brushes are from my I Heart Travel set.
I used a Copic marker a couple times this week (Clay, E44). For my date card I added a bunch of text right on top of the card using the pen and then cut up another card (let’s do this) for the title. For the date I just circled the month and then underlined the specific days this week.
One of my favorite things to make this week was a flip up card using a text transparency on top of a photo. I used a piece of washi tape to hold the two cards together and create the flip.
Because of the placement of this card I needed to cut a slit in the page protector. I used a metal ruler and a craft knife to cut a slit that was just a bit wider than the 3×4 cards.
That’s what the slit looked like after I cut it and before I added the cards inside.
After cutting I was able to slip them inside the pocket, keeping the transparent piece on the outside of the page protector.
I had printed my photo with text on top previously.
I find myself really loving writing on photos lately. Such an easy way to get a bit of the story included.
