Pocket Scrapbooking with leftovers from the April Paper Pumpkin Kit

Earlier this week, I shared with you the cute framed art that I made with the April Paper Pumpkin kit. Well there were a ton of leftovers after I was done, so I decided to put them to good use in my youngest daughter’s Project Life scrapbook.

Just look at all the goodies I had left over from this month’s Paper Pumpkin kit!  In addition to the stamp that I can use over and over, I had 10 tag die cuts, assorted hearts, linen thread, a banner die cut, glue dots, a button, and foam adhesive strips.  In addition I had the cute patterned belly band and the ribbon (not pictured) since I decided to keep the framed art for myself.  I cut the belly band up into 3×4 cards.

These pictures were taken on an overnight trip to Michigan to see my oldest daughter perform at a marching band competition and then the next day at the Henry Ford Museum.  Since the competition was early in the day, we spent the rest of the afternoon exploring the area and doing some letterboxing.

For this handmade Project Life card, I pretty much copied the design of the framed art from the Paper Pumpkin kit.  I just love how it turned out!  I used Calypso Coral and Coastal Cabana ink for the arrow stamps.  I added pen stitching to the heart to make it pop a bit.

For the second handmade Project Life card on this page, I used one of the cards cut from the belly band.  I added one of the leftover tags and accented it with the heart die cut and a strip made from the negative of the mini hearts.  I used the tag for my journaling for the page.

The pictures from the second page of this spread were just random pictures from the month of October.  I just love the one of daddy and daughter relaxing on the floor.  So cute!

For the last handmade journal card, I used the ribbon from the kit and added pen stitching on the last heart die cut.  I just love that color combination together!

      I highly recommend Project Life Robin! I was the same way. I have 4 kids and was years and years behind. With Project Life, you just stick the cards and photos in the pockets and add some journaling. I am able to get a month’s worth of pictures done in a couple of hours. (And that is doing pages for each child’s individual album as well as the family one.)

    I love this! My scrapbooking wasn’t nearly as inventive as this when I was into it.

    There are so many digital programs that help you arrange your pictures but there is still nothing as nice as personalized scrapbooking. This is really nice.
