Pocket Scrapbooking with Project Life

Cultivate a good life and record it.



creative team inspiration – stampin’ up!


Just a few weeks ago we introduced you to our first Project Life® by Stampin’ Up!® products since announcing our partnership with Stampin’ Up!® in April. The response to these products has been overwhelmingly positive and the excitement continues to build as we get even closer to our full product launch in the Stampin’ Up! 2014-2015 Annual Catalog which will be revealed to customers on Monday, June 2nd – less than a week from now. We can’t wait for you to see everything that we have to offer in the Annual Catalog, but until we reveal those for you on Monday, we wanted to share some inspiration using the Everyday Adventure collection that is currently available.

Several of our creative team members recently had the opportunity to play with the Stampin’ Up! products and were thrilled with what they received. We’re delighted to show you what they created – their pages are most definitely inspiring! All pages are featuring the Everyday Adventure Card Collection with some pages showing embellishments from the Everyday Adventure Accessory Pack, Day to Day Stamp Set, and the Point and Click Stamp Set.

  1. Thanks for the inspiration! I love Stampin’ Up! As a demo, I am having so much fun with our new Project Life catalog line :)

  2. GREAT layouts! I can’t WAIT until the Stampin’ Up! catalogue goes *live* next week so we can all get our hands on the exclusive Project Life items. I LOVE your products and am excited to share them with my customers!

    These are awesome pages! I have completed my first four pages of a recent vacation, and I have a hard time putting the pictures in the pockets so that the orientation of the picture is in order of events to scrap on the page. Does that make sense? I noticed on your examples that the vast majority of photos are horizontal, not vertical. Do you snap pictures that way deliberately so they fit better on the page?
    I am especially interested in the layout with the lady in the concentric circled hat and the one with the skier. How/where did you get those pictures printed those sizes?

      Mitzi- Since starting project life I make an effort to turn my phone before snapping photos so that most of my photos are landscape. But there are lots of photo pocket pages to choose from for portrait photos, too!

    • Juli Jones says:

      Hi Mitzi~ This is Juli, I created the pages you are asking about. I ordered these pictures from Persnickety Prints as they offer a wide range of sizes for printing. The one of my mom and the hat I did not do any cropping on I just chose for it to be printed an 8×12. That is the exact size needed to have it fit in the 2 rows of pockets like I did using Design A. I used Design E for the pictures of my dad skiing. Those are 6×6 squares so I knew my picture needed to be 6×12 to go across. I cropped it to a 6×12 in Photoshop Elements but since Persnickety prints doesn’t offer a 6×12 print but they do offer an 8×12 print I created an 8×12 blank canvas in PSE and placed my 6×12 picture on it. So then when I received it I just trimmed off the white borders I had on top and bottom. I hope that makes sense. Also, I do take my fair share of vertical photos and I get what you’re saying about trying to make them work in the order of events you want to scrap. I find a lot of mine will fit in the smaller 3×4 slots so I will just cut them down. However, there are a lot that I do not want to crop, I want everything in the frame to fit in….so with those I usually will resize the picture to fit in the smaller spot. There are a lot of great vertical page options now though that I have been very happy with. I hope that helps some. Thanks for your comment:)

      Thank you, Becky and Juli for your comments. Both were helpful.

    Thanks for showing us these great layouts! I like the kit even more now… Can’t wait until it will be available in Germany! I’ll have a look at the catalogue on monday and I hope we’ll get most of your SU!-products too overseas. Special thanks to you Becky, because the fact, that you work together with SU! will bring back together our crop-groupe again (for having a workshop)… Haven’t seen the girls for month now! Yours Anika

  7. Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The text in your content seem to be running off the screen in Chrome.
    I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something
    to do with web browser compatibility but I thought
    I’d post to let you know. The layout look great though!

    Hope you get the problem fixed soon. Many thanks
