Lisa is 50 (Echo Park Here & Now)


I used this month's creative kit from My Creative Scrapbook to create my second ever Project Life two-page spread (you can view the contents of this month's kit on the My Creative Scrapbook web site). The left side is a traditional 12x12 layout and the right side uses a Becky Higgins divided page protector.

Here's a look at the left page:


Here is the right-hand page protector in more detail. Just like with last month's Project Life spread, the embellishments are both inside, and outside, of the pockets.


Here's a look at the embellishment cluster I created in the top right pocket:


And here's a detail shot from the 12x12 page:




I'm really getting hooked on making these two-page layouts so I think you'll be seeing more of these from me in the future. I don't think I'll ever look at Project Life as a day-to-day record of our lives, but more as a companion to certain events that need a bit more space than just one page.

How about you? How do you approach Project Life?

  3. Great page to commemorate your birthday. You've done such a wonderful job with your embellishments, the second page doesn't really feel like a divided page to me. Coming up on that milestone myself though I hadn't thought of the 'half century' part. Thanks for pointing that out :-)
