Alternate Page Traditionally Project Life



My first attempt at doing a Project Life Scrapbook Page with  a Traditional Page. I would love to scrapbook alternate pages traditional then Project Life.  Keep an eye out on my blog for more layouts using a combination of the both.

I love Scrapbooking but find I don't have the time to make lavish layouts like I did in the past.  There is a great alternative now.  Introducing Stampin' Up!s Project Life Photo Pocket Pages and 12" x 12" Page Protectors.  These make Scrapbooking quick and fun and allows me to add my own flair to a layout.

I would love you to come on this journey of melding Traditional Scrapbooking with Project Life with me.  If you would like to know more I would love to show you how.  You can contact me by email here.

Products Used:
Stamp Set:  Back to Basics Alphabet
Card:  Whisper white, lost lagoon
Ink:  Lost Lagoon
