ORIGINAL POST ON PL BELOW:
In this article - http://www.sudsol.org/members/index.php?action=article&id=6407&relid=14 – Angie Anderson talked about five basic elements of Scrapbooking. Angie gave us some great basic scrapbooking information here, because I know, that not all of us are comfortable scrapping! (And yes, please do go read her article… along with my updated PL version here).
Angie wrote this article in 2009, so I’d like to update it a bit in terms of scrapbooking with Project Life. Basic elements you need to get started with Project Life style scrapbooking:
1. 3 ring album – 2 choices in the SU catalog
a. Espresso 6x8 ($9.95 - #135293)
b. Black Faux Leather 12x12 ($29.95 - #135292)
(I realize this seems pricey, but the price for Faux Leather *is* commensurate with those found elsewhere for PL – I found a Faux Leather white one listed for 29.97 online at a website I shop on weekly!)
c. Personally, I'll be surprised if more albums do not appear in the Holiday catalog or as special additions to the catalog. I've been wrong before on these guesses of mine, but I just have a hunch!
2. Photo pocket pages
a. 6x8 variety pack ($5.95 - #135297 – 12 pieces total of 5 asstd designs)
b. Design 1 12x12 ($6.95 – 135295 – 12 each of 1 design)
c. Variety pack 12x12 ($6.95 – 135294 – 2 each of 6 designs for 12 pcs)
3. PL Cards
a. Digital PL cards – MDS
b. Exclusive Becky Higgins/SU designs – page 189 new IBC
c. 4x3 Grid Cards – page 188 new IBC
d. Make your own using Stampin’ Up! Stamps and inks,coordinating with DSP, pieces from the THIS & THAT collection, washi tape, pieces from the All Inclusive card kits on page 196-197, leftover pieces from My Paper Pumpkin (and what else would you add? DO share!!!)
a. Journaling is one of the VIPs** of PL (**Very Important Part)
b. Journaling pens page 188 new IBC OR use our Stampin’ Write markers (A note about these – they *are* safe for use in scrapbooking, however, since they are water-based, they may fade over time. I have scrapbook pages I wrote on 15 years ago with some SU markers. Still pretty and quite legible.)
c. Use blank areas of the preprinted PL cards we sell on page 189 OR the grid cards on page 188.
d. Do some of your journaling by computer. I just open up Microsoft Word and type away. Just a piece of advice – please do not do ALL of your journaling on the computer – leave the legacy of your horrible, beautiful, quirky, or even illegible handwriting for your kids and grandkids. I treasure the recipes I have that were written in my grandmother’s hand!
a. The absolutely MOST VIP of PL!
b. My pictures are ALL digital, so I print my own to the desired size
c. Have preprinted odd-sized pictures? Scan and print to your specs, or mount on correctly-sized pieces of SU! Cardstock. If they are one-of-a-kind pictures, definitely (PLEASE) make at least a digital copy with backups in offsite locations.*
d. Don’t have pictures for an event? For my eldest daughter’s 16th birthday, the pictures didn’t turn out – we have none except a photo booth shot from the mall. They went to a movie, so I used ticket stubs, a screen shot of the movie poster and some creative paper piecing on my part…along with a bad copy of the photo from the mall photo booth. Sometimes, you just don’t have a picture of something important – but you can still memorialize it in your scrapbooks!
That’s it – five basic things you need for basic Project Life scrapbooking.
