Stampin’ Up! Hello December 2016 Project Life

Stampin’ Up! Hello December 2016 Project Life I’ve mentioned before that I was never able to drink the scrapbooking Kool Aid.  However, that doens’t mean that I don’t like scrapbooking supplies!  I especially love Project Life by Stampin’ Up! because not only are the items perfect for scrapbookers, but the kits also make cardmaking a breeze!  Over the next several days I am going to show you a variety of greeting cards and other fun projects that you can create in under five minutes with the new Stampin’ Up! Hello December 2016 Project Life Card Kit and Accessory Pack that is currently available to order from the new 2016 Holiday Catalog. Look at all of the fun items that come in the Stampin’ Up!

Project Life by Stampin’ Up! Mini Album

I made these cute mini albums using the Moments Like These Project Life Bundle by Stampin’ Up! to swap at next week’s Stampin’ Up! 2015 Inspire – Create – Share event in Salt Lake City.  I am excited to attend and be a part of all the fun!  I have attend Stampin’ Up! national conventions three times, Leadership twice, and several Regional gatherings. (I once had the opportunity to do an on-stage presentation at one of the Regional events.)  One of the benefits of attending live Stampin’ Up! events is the exposure to so much creativity.  Not only do the Stampin’ Up! employees fill us with ideas and inspiration for projects and products, but we also have the opportunity to create our own projects and trade our items with others.  “Swapping” is a great way to meet fellow demonstrators and to get inspired. Even though the mini albums I made for my swaps look like they were a ton of work, I made all of them in under two hours!  Here’s how: Supplies: Moments Like These Project Life by Stampin’ Up! Tin of Cards Photopolymer Stamp Set To add the bling, you can use whatever punches and accessories that you would like to use,  but I used      Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack      Gold & Silver Sequin Trims      Silver Metallic Thread      Calypso Coral Thick Baker’s Twine Purchased plastic name tags and metal key rings How-to: Trim assorted papers from the Moments Like These Project Life Kit to measure 2-1/2″ x 3-1/4″ Add embellishments to each piece of paper Insert the embellished papers into the name tags (I used six pieces of paper/six name tags per album, but you can use as many as you want to!) Attach the pages to the metal ring Tie assorted ribbons around the ring THAT IS ALL!!!  It doesn’t get any easier than that!! Play around with the different patterns of papers included in the kit.  Here are two combinations I put together:   Built for Free Using: My Stampin Blog
