Simple Layouts To The Rescue

I ran into Hobby Lobby the other day and was pleased to find one last Honey Project Life kit (here’s the digi version). Of all of Becky’s new Project Life kits, this is the one I really wanted. So I splurged. But with a coupon. Of course.

Rather than waiting to use it for my next monthly round up of Project Life (this year I’m only doing it on a monthly basis) I decided just to use the cards in the kit on a regular 12×12 layout.

With very little free time on my hands lately, I was so happy with how quickly this came together. It was just what I needed — a fun, simple layout to help me get the creative mojo flowing again!

Oh my cuteness! I am in love with the images in this kit. Cameras. Hearts. Stars. Lots of great phrase cards. Fantastic color palette. I love everything about it.

Now that I do have several core kits and I’m not a weekly Project Lifer, I need to incorporate these cards into my regular scrapbooking more. I want to maximize the use of all of my kits. For this layout, in addition to a few cards from the Honey kit, I only added a sheet of cardstock, a fun background pattern paper, a strip of polka dot paper, some photo corners made with an old Quickutz die, a simple title and a few paper clip embellishments with a ribbon from my favorite newest collection.

This layout will go into my album in the middle of a section from our trip to DisneyWorld in 2009. These are some random photos from our day at the Magic Kingdom. There isn’t a specific story or anything in particular I wanted to say about them. There are other pages in this section of my album where I include stories and more detail, so I don’t mind that this one is journaling free.

Now I can move on to a layout that is a little more complicated. Hopefully it’ll be done in time to post Thursday. Wish me luck!

Thanks for stopping by today!


  1. Super cool, super fun LO! I love how you used those phrase cards!

  2. Such a fun page, Tammy, with the photos and cards layered up.

  3. Cuteness, indeed. I love how you hung the cards across the page like tags. That Honey kit looks fab.

  4. those cards are so totally cool! love them!! and your layout is just perfect

  5. What a fun page! Our LSS is getting ready to carry a complete line of PL. I should invest in some of it just for my regular scrapbook pages!

  6. Love it Tammy! I seriously just had a lightbulb moment! You know I haven’t been happy with my cherry kit, what if I used it for cards and projects and bought one of the new kits? Hmmm…

  7. I’ve used my PL cards on a 12×12 before. Totally works for me 🙂

  8. This is an awesome way to use those cards 🙂
    A good friend has given me many of these cards…even though I don’t do BH Project Life I have used the cards in other projects 🙂
    Your layout is so fun, love it.

  9. Super cute layout!
    And I have been eying those PL kits.
    A friend of mine has a facebook scrap store and sells everything at a discount, so I was looking through her sale album there and picked up the Seasons mini kit for sure. Trying to decide between Blush and Honey on the core kits.

  10. I have been to 2 different Hobby Lobby and they are not carrying any Project Life items. I am going to one more tomorrow hoping they have them. Great layout!
