Crafty uses for Project Life cards

I love pocket scrapbooking as much as the next gal (or guy), but I find these cute little cards have many uses beyond sliding them into divided page protectors. Today on Studio 5, I'm sharing a few of those ways. 

Watch my Journaling Card Crafts segment here!

Halloween Banner

The 3x4 cards are just right for creating cute banners. Especially when paired with pictures printed using my beloved Instax Share printer

BTW, during the segment, I mentioned linking to my previous Instax project that was featured on Studio 5. You'll find that here

Okay, back to this business. Using the Seasonal Snapshot Project Life Card Collection by Stampin' Up!, I created this happy Halloween decoration.


Did you know you can also get Accessory Packs for the various PL collections? This particular pack includes sequins and cool transparency cards (clear plastic), which I used one to create a shaker piece for my banner. I simply sewed the transparency to the 3x4 card, containing the sequins, some wood veneer, and my photo inside. Cute! Thinking about making some holiday tags using this method as well.

The Project Life by Stampin' Up! wouldn't be complete without coordinating stamp sets. And, guess what! They've generously offered their Remember This set as a giveaway right here on the ol' blog. Thanks, Stampin' Up!

Thanksgiving Card Creations

Cards are a natural fit when it comes to creating a place card for the Thanksgiving Day table. 

And don't forget a mini album, made from the larger 4x6 cards. And check out that darling heart paper clip. H&M! That's right, they sell more than just affordable clothing. Score! 

Luggage Tag

Pack your bags. This cute tag will add your signature look to all of your bags. The key: Using the transparency cards, which won't get damaged. I simply sandwiched a paper card between two plastic cards and stitched them together. Naturally, some sequins and wood veneer came into play as well. 

Don't forget to add your personal info to the back of your paper card before stitching the transparency pieces around it. 

Gift Tag/Gift Card Holder

Nothing makes gift-card giving faster than attaching a little card to a glassine bag. Then, it's as easy as sliding your gift card inside. Done and done!

To create this gift, I used the Love Story Project Life Cards by Stampin' Up!

I'll share the card I created tomorrow as part of my World Card Making Day celebration. Please check back for that and another fun giveaway. Thanks! Can't wait to party card-y with you soon! :)
