Project Life Cards



We have been sharing ATCs here on the Viva Las VegaStamps blog, but I am more of a Project Life gal, so I chose to make a set of 3x4 cards for a Project Life page. I am using a Becky Higgins Project Life sleeve, but if you like, you can choose other brands and style of pocket pages that are available from many other manufacturers.


I wanted to do a black and white series, so I used five different stamps and Versafine Onyx ink. All of the stamps I used are available at Viva Las VegaStamps.


After I got them all stamped, I let them dry overnight. There is nothing worse than sliding wet ink into these sleeves — it can ruin a whole project by smearing inside your pockets.


I used pictures from Valentine's week. I liked the red accents against the black and white. I also added a bow I cut from a die set on the outside of my sleeve. I love the added dimension even in a flat canvas like the pocket pages.


So there you have it! This was my take on ATC week, and a big thanks to Dee Dee for letting me go outside of the box on this. I had a lot of fun making these.

This is also my last post for Viva Las VegaStamps. My guest term is over, and I have loved every project I made here these last three months. 

Thanks to Viva Las VegaStamps for having me!

Love the cards! I just started PL a few months ago and am determined not to use all the pre-made cards, but to use my stamps and own art as cards. Great inspiration! Thank you!
