Ulli here with you sharing two double pages from my 2016 project life album. I made them with the new and absolutely gorgeous Wild at Heart collection.
Then I sorted all my pictures and filled my 9×12 page protectors with them. On the left side of my first double page I used photos from various events, on the right side photos from our family photo shooting. We often do photo shootings with self-timer and the photo series function of my husband’s camera. They are mostly not perfect, but I love that we can very spontaneously decide to take some pictures of us four when we happen to have some time and the weather is nice. I love all our family photos, they are so precious to me.
On the left side I used two PL Cards. The white one with the orange script I used for the month. I glued some white alphas from my stash on it. I do not make weekly PL, I do it by the month. I placed the Wild@Heart chipboard from the Chipboard Accent Stickers on the beautiful water color card from the Patchwork paper and stitched over it with my sewing machine.
I chose a photo of my little girl and her best friend for the big pocket on the top left and decorated it with a paper strip and an ephemera piece from the Die Cut Ephemera.
Next I attached one of the wonderful chipboard frames to the photo of Lina sitting on pumpkins and decorated it with a water color heart from the ephemera pack. I adhered this to some white cardstock – I often use white cardstock to make my pages look bright.
The other photos I decorated with stickers from the Accessory Stickers and ephemera pieces. I stamped the date with a roller stamp next to some of the photos.
On the right side I wanted to use a chipboard frame with some floral paper behind it. To make sure my pocket looks good from both sides, I actually backed two mini chipboard frames in the same size with paper and glued them together. I adhered a wooden heart from the wood veneers to the paper and the other frame I decorated with a word sticker and some glitter enamel dots, which go well with my design on the next page. I used my Fuse Tool from We R Memory Keepers to create a smaller pocket and filled it with mint, yellow, white and some glitter sequins. Then I closed this pocket with the Fuse Tool.
I added three 3×4 PL cards and decorated them with stickers, chipboard stickers, some arrow stamps and stitched over them with my sewing machine. I cut all photos from the shooting into 3×4” so that they fill the entire pocket. I embellished them with some stickers and word stickers.
I then started working on my second double page. If you remember, I already had a pocket ready, the one with the chipboard frames and sequin pocket.
On the left I added two 3×4 PL Cards: “Bloom where you are planted” and the one with the cute butterflies. Some photos I printed in the full 3×4” size, some in smaller sizes. These I adhered to a white cardstock base. I typed my journaling on the PC and printed it out. Then I cut it into strips and glued these on the photos.
I also used one of the super cute rubber charms and placed it over a label from the Fussy Cut paper. I decorated everything with a word sticker, a chipboard sticker and an ephemera heart.
On the right side I also used two 3×4 PL cards plus a paper strip and a label from the Fussy Cut paper. On the top right I stitched over the paper strip and glued a flair button on the page protector. If I use very thick embellishments in my project life album, I usually glue them on the page protector itself rather than the PL cards or photos.
I often mix black and white and color photos on my PL pages. Some photos just match the rest much better when they are black and white; especially those with lots of colors and busy backgrounds.
The rest of my journaling I adhered to a PL cards on my last page.
I used my stapler to secure a label sticker to my photo on the top left and stamped the date on it.
I hope you like my PL pages and maybe you feel inspired to create some of your own too!
Thank you for stopping by today! See you soon, Ulli
