Let’s talk about Project Life. Now, stop that. I can see some of you rolling your eyes. Personally I love the concept and wish it had been invented when my children were small as it would have made scrapbooking a LOT easier for me. But I know it’s not for every scrapbooker, and I appreciate that not everyone scrapbooks.
But wait. Even if you think Project Life isn’t for you, I want you to take a look at the Accessory Packs. These are add-ons to the Project Life card kits, but they offer many more possibilities.
Scrapbookers… can use these as embellishments for traditional scrapbooking. Ready-made journalling panels, little pieces of DSP (you were only going to cut up the big sheets anyway) and fun embellishments in small quantities were exactly what I was looking for when I was scrapbooking more frequently. Now they’re here… and they’re in SU colours so you can match them to your existing supplies.
Non-scrapbookers… will be harder to convince so take a look at these cards. Think of these accessory packs as a sort of a card kit; you can create quick and easy projects by combining them with your existing craft stash. You’ll have lots of variety so won’t get bored and your projects will look different to everybody else’s because not everyone has thought of using the accessory packs in this way! Yes, some of the cards have words on them which don’t always lend themselves to cards, but there’s always the other side which is invariably word-free.
I made these three cards in a very short space of time. I used “Way to Go” and “Hi!” to cover up the words on the Project Life cards (I could have turned them over but I liked the colours better on this side) and the “Hello” card did most of the work for me, although I did back it with some Basic Black cardstock and use some of the washi tape to highlight the strip. Yes, you get washi tape in these accessory packs… NOW are you convinced?
