Hello and happy Friday, everyone! Today we’re teaming up with our friends at BasicGrey to bring you some Project Life inspiration. They’ve started a fabulous “What A Life” blog feature and when they invited us to join in the fun, we jumped at the chance! So two amazing designers — Kelly Purkey and Melanie Bauer — each put together one week of Project Life using the same Hero Arts and BasicGrey products, including Line Dots, Ampersand, Newspaper Skyline, and What a Life stamps, plus the What’s Up 6×6 paper pad, Flags and Mini Envelopes. Super fun collection of goodies, right!?
You can see Melanie’s Project Life spread over on the BasicGrey blog, and we’re thrilled to be sharing Kelly’s right here on our blog. Here’s a look at Kelly’s pages side-by-side in her album, documenting a recent week in her life:
Kelly was kind enough to share some insight into her creative process with us as well. Take it away, Kelly…!
My method for Project Life is to keep it simple and make it work for me. This means paring down supplies and only using a few products so I don’t get overwhelmed and can easily complete the spread each week.
Stamps have been my go-to for this… they work for adding just the right sentiment or creating a background. I used the skyline stamp (one of my favorites!) to fill up my main title block for the week and accented it with the Basic Grey flags.
I added the What a Life and Line Dots background stamp to the Basic Grey paper to create fun patterns on my cards. The spread came together in a snap and it makes me happy to look at the fun little touches that the stamps add!
How would you like a chance to win the same stamps Kelly & Melanie used on their Project Life spreads? We’re giving away the three stamps shown below to one lucky winner! For a chance to win, simply leave a comment on this blog post by 11:59pm PST on Sunday, June 24th and we’ll choose a random winner next week.
After you comment, be sure to pop over to the BasicGrey blog to continue the fun — there’s more Project Life inspiration from Melanie and another giveaway too!! Gotta love that.
Thank you all so much for joining us. Enjoy the weekend, friends!
