Project Life // Week 31 // 2020
It seems so strange to me now, that I have not recorded the years 2013-2019 just because it was difficult for me to stick to the old traditional method of Project Life. It is mind blowing that I didn't think about making my OWN cards using what I love the most- Cardstock Papers, Stamps, Washi Tapes, Old Papers, Scissors and Glue. I have no idea why, but I took the simple concept of Project Life and complicated it for no reason besides my own perfectionism. But I am certain now that I will find the time to go back to those years and document our lives even if time passed by since then. I have enough memories written down and way too many pictures and videos to use as a guiding to document backwards. I want to go back and try to capture the little moments using Project Life. It will be amazing to have these years documented in albums.
So week 31 was between 26 of July and 1st of August 2020 (Here in Israel we start the week on Sunday and end it on Saturday). We spent the week at home, as usual, but this week we also invited friends over for the first time during Covid-19.
I picked up soft colors, like smokey grey, dusty rose, beige and soft brown. After that, I picked up a few stamp sets that I love and stamped them directly on the textured papers (my favorite is Claire Fontaine Papers, Fabriano Papers and Bazzil Papers. I use these three brands all the time). after stamping with my favorite black ink (Versafine Onyx Black from Tsukineko), I took a white cardstock and stamp a beautiful stamp set from Neat & Tangled. I used two copic markers to color the rose and fussy cut the image by using a pair of scossors from We R Memory Keepers (detail scissors from the crafter's essentials series).
It didn't take long to finish these pockets. I tried to keep them as simple as possible. Doily there, vintage paper here, no fuss. I used what I have in hand and didn't overthink it. I think that's my favorite way to create pocket pages these days.
Don't forget- Use what you have! Don't wait until you get new supply, use what you have in reach right now. I promise you that beautiful cards can be made with just a simple cardstock, a washi tape and one stamp set. I hope you'll be able to get inspiration from this blog to make simple cards that hold memories for a lifetime.
See you soon,
