Good morning, Hip Kit fans! I love using leftover bits from my monthly kits to create Project Life pages. I’ve been PL-ing for three years now and this year I decided to switch my methods of documenting our daily life up a bit.
I used to use an entire spread to hold a whole week’s worth of photographs and details, but now I’m combining two weeks onto each page instead of just one. This is due to several factors…this year I have less time to put my spreads together and I haven’t been taking as many photos throughout the week, etc. Our lives are really busy right now, but I love that I can adjust my Project Life album to accommodate our crazy schedules and still get all the information down in one place.
For week’s 3 and 4, I used several pieces of patterned paper that came in the 6×6 We R Memory Keepers Paper Pad that’s available in the February 2015 Embellishment Kit. The smaller pattern size is perfect for my PL pockets!
Some of the papers from the 6×6 pad were perfect for adding my journaling to, with a little help from a few other embellishments from the February 2015 kits like the washi tape and wood veneers.
I coordinated the patterned paper, colors, and embellishments for both weeks to keep my spread looking cohesive.
One thing I love to do in my PL album is use letter stickers on top of larger photos such as the one below. We are in the middle of a house renovation that includes our kitchen and since the mess is the only thing we’ve been able to look at I decided to use the letter stickers from the February 2015 embellishment kit to highlight the current state of our kitchen.
Kit leftovers are also great for making filler cards for your PL album! I sized a piece of patterned paper from the 6×6 paper pad to fit in the 3×4 pocket and layered the ampersand from the Crate Paper chipboard along with a sentiment from the My Mind’s Eye die cuts available in the February 2015 Main Kit to create a quick and easy accent to my spread.
I’d love to know how you use up the leftover scraps from your kits?
Thanks for stopping by today!
