“The Olde Curiosity Shoppe” Project Life Page

I do not post most of my Project Life pages I do not post as I want to retain the privacy for others who might be pictured or mentioned in my pages.  This page has a folded note for personal details alongside a rabbit seen through the deck railing.

A picture of my sewing machine along with some of the containers I use to store sewing bobbins, embellishments, thread, etc., complete with cut-off tag with string ‘threads’ attached illustrated one of the journaling cards which described activities of that day:

But my favorite is a picture of the old “cookie tin” and its story of usage over the years from childhood cookie tin  to sewing tin.  This tin has been a part of my life ever since I can remember, as I followed Nell into “The Olde Curiosity Shoppe” and gazed in wonder on the items pictured in the windows.

As a sewing tin I can periodically re-discover coming across it and, once again, delighting through my childhood eyes.

Stamping for Project Life & Art Journals

Simple stamping in preparing some cards and embellishments ahead of time is helpful to have on hand and fun to do.

Cut out some cardstock to the correct sizes and stamp away.  Then use your circle punch on those same cardstocks to stamp and enjoy the results when mixed in with cut-out circles from other papers.  these can also be used in art journals.

There is no limit to what you can do.

I was doing some stamping for some Project Life cards and then stamping the extra ink out onto an envelope that happened to be lying near by.  When I finished making my cards, I went to clean up and to throw out the envelope.  I  looked, and decided I really liked the look of the whole envelope, postmark and all:

I then cropped out both 3×4 and 4×6 cards from the original, including the barcode:
