After showing you my new Counterfeit kit last Sunday, I thought I ought to get to using all those goodies right away. That title makes you think it all happened lickety-split, doesn’t it? Except I put that kit together weeks ago, and here it is a week after I blogged about it and not much has happened. Urgency about scrapping has not been SOP around here lately. I blame it on the retired spouse keeping me busy with other things – which I have also yet to get around to blogging!
Not only have I procrastinated about using my February kit, I have been up in the air about how, if, why and/or when I might tackle Project Life this year. You already know that I am using the planner, and that will hold a few pictures each month. I decided to put everyday photos and snaps of projects that we accomplish in the planner. I can pull those photo pages out at the end of the year for an album; I don’t plan on keeping my planner pages as a rule.
Then I decided to use a large Project Life album and the Kraft Edition cards as the basis for a travelogue – it will include new places, both near and far, that we visit this year. I did manage to start using those cards as soon as I opened the box. Here is the title page – at some point, one of these cards may be swapped out for a collage of highlight photos.
Sorry the picture is not sharper, but the sun isn’t cooperating and Picasa doesn’t do well on contrast with pages containing brown or kraft, it seems. That will surely bug me a time or two more this year. The two papers on the right hand side are from my February kit as well as the transparency and the balloon flair. The other cards are from the Kraft Edition of Project Life by Becky Higgins. I have already discovered that there are many, many shades of kraft, but I will try not to let that bug me. The little doodads are from my stash. The stamped tag there was from a swap or a long ago kit, I think.
It feels good to get that first page done. Whew!
