Project Life Week 37 - Life Paper Scrapbook October PL Challenge

Hello, Ive skipped a few weeks of Project Life to show you this one as part of the new Life Paper Scrapbook Monthly Project Life Challenge (wow that was a mouthful). This month we are challenging you to use SQUARE photos within your PL layouts. Most of us are familiar with Instagram or know how to crop a photo, so this one should be easy!

The photos Im sharing are all from my week 37 layout. Yes I am pretty much up to date! YAY

I had quite a few photos to use for this week so I wanted to keep it nice and simple. Ive used one of the new Becky Higgins Project Life Themed Card packs 'LOVE'.. As you can see the patterns on the cards compliment the photos well and are enough to focus on without needing any extra embellishments. This made it super quick to complete the spread.

I printed my photos in 3 sizes - 2 sizes of squares (2 inch and 3.7 inch) and the standard 4x6

For the green card, I cut 2 lines on the edges of the frame to slot the photo into rather than just sticking it straight onto the card.

I used minimal embellishments within the layout. Here you can see the new Days of the Week stickers and an asterisk from the Alphabet pack (both new release Becky Higgins PL products)

For this photos, I used a piece of a grid journal card with some washi tape to label the day the photo was from. Then Ive stapled the photo to the cards with my Tiny Attacher

On the right hand side, again no embellishing as the cards have enough excitement that they dont need anything extra. The bottom right date card shows 2 layered square photos with a date tab on top. The date tab was actually printed on the card and I have simply cut around the bottom with a craft knife to slide the photo under.

LOVE this themed card pack as much as I LOVE my square photos. I think Ive perfected the size I need to use for the 3x4 pockets. They dont take up too much space so there is still room for journalling.

Thats all from me today. Make sure to head on over to the Life Paper Scrapbook blog to check out the other Design team layouts and see the awesome prize we have up for grabs from our generous sponsor for this month Gossamer Blue

Project Life is a concept designed by Becky Higgins. It is a range that works anyway you want it to. You don't have to embellish your layouts or use any extra products like I do. You can easily record an album full of memories with just a Core Kit, bulk pack of page protectors and a 12x12 Album. I purchase all my core products from Craft House - Exclusive stockist for Australia and New Zealand.
