Project Life with Everyday Life Stamps

KemperLODD1
I’m trying my hand at Project Life for the first time, and the new Everyday Life stamp set by Darkroom Door is perfect for it!  In case you aren’t familiar with it… Project Life is an extremely popular movement that revolves around very quick scrapbooking. It involves divided page protectors so you’re not working on a large scrapbook page, but rather on several small sections, many of which are used for photos without further embellishment.

I used the journaling card from Everyday Life and stamped “The Story” on the top of it. I really like that the journaling card stamp is blank and you can substitute any of the stamps that come in the set for the ‘header’ of the card.  Header stamps include the words “Family” “Details” “My Day” “Daily Life” “Today” “Remember” “Notes” “The Story” “Life is Good” and “Every Day”.  Each day of the week is included in the set, too!

I used the “Life is Good” stamp as a photo caption, and also cut two sections from the Journey Word Block stamp for the same purpose.  I wanted to include some extra photos so I made a little mini album for one of the pockets (a bit contrary to the quick scrapbooking idea!)  As a backer for the pocket that holds my mini album, I used the Corrugated Iron Background stamp. I was glad to include a few extra photos and memorabilia in my mini booklet:

My stamping was done with Coffee Archival Ink on Basic Grey papers, and all the edges were done with Vintage Photo distress ink.

Thanks so much for visiting today!
