Project Life | 2013 | The beginning (well almost)

I finally jumped on the Project Life bandwagon! I was feeling a little fed up of my 4x6 albums full of photos without stories or pretty embellies. With no time (or inclination!) to dedicate whole pages 12x12 to every photo I ever want to document, coupled with all the lovely Project Life products that are available now how could I resist.

I bought the Project Life core kits in Midnight and Honey along with the 12x12 papers, the textured cardstock and the dividers (I'm a sucker for things that match). So far I've only used Honey. As I was starting my album mid-year I decided to start with the birth of my niece on the 4th July 2013.

Firstly, I created a front page. This came together in seconds, although the embellishing took a lot longer. I guess this is the beauty of Project Life you can spend as little or as much time you have/wish on your album.

  


Along with the Project Life cards, I've added alpha's, stickers, and washi tape to my pages. I thought I'd make one list of all the stickers/collections I think matches the Honey core kit. I would love to hear of any products you have used on your pages?

~~Embellishments (I think) match Project Life Honey core kit~~
Sn@p Cardstock Sticker Sheets - Labels (and pretty much any of the core Sn@p products)
Echo Park - Summer Days 
Simple Stories - 100 Days of Summer
Adornit Cardstock Mini Alphas - Tiny Halloween, Tiny Sunshine, Tiny Treasure
Some seriously old October Afternoon Farm Fresh Stickers
Washi tape - multicoloured dots, blue/orange/green zigzag and green/white polka dots.
  
I'm using the Project Life Honey Edition - Chevron album (the one on the right) for my first album. The red one is also from the Honey collection and is called Dots.
