Another Project 365 Idea

I have another idea to share about Project 365.  Again since the kits are sold out...we have to become creative ourselves.  This is ok...I like creative! ;D

I have these pages by Crop In Style.

They are meant for storage but I got them to do some pages in my scrapbooks...just for something different.  I originally got the idea from Ali Edwards.  You can see what she did here.  I was thinking about them the other day in relation to Project 365 and I thought it would be another perfect substitute for those of us looking for alternatives who did not get a kit! ;D  You can find the PSB Crop In Style refill pages here.  I bought mine at Archiver's.  I was able to buy them there individually rather than a pack.

Here's what mine look like for this week...

Supplies Used:
Crop In Style Refill Page
American Crafts Cardstock
My Mind's Eye Out and About paper
Kaiser Scrapbook flower
Cloud Nine Word Phrase sticker
Martha Stewart Embellishment bead
Heidi Swapp date stamp
Cricut Design Studio Software
Cricut Expressions
Cricut Cartridge Base Camp

What I did was measured the pockets and then I designed the shapes on my Cricut Design Studio Software.  I then cut the pieces out on my Cricut Expressions in different paper colors and styles.  Then I went to work.  The picture below shows the piles of cut out paper I have left over for future pages...

Again...I did this pretty simply.  And I like that.  Mostly just photos and words.  I'm liking the power of photos and words lately.  Obviously you can do as little or as much embellishment as you want.  I like that if I have a week when I don't have a lot of photos I can put interesting looking paper or what-not in the pockets.  And then weeks when I have a lot of photos I can do just the reverse.

I think that with Project 365 I'm going to do a combination of this page above AND the hand made ones from yesterday's post.  Mostly because I like variety.  Also because I'm not always going to want to have my photos cut up so small as the page above has such small pockets where the sewn one has larger ones.

I'm hoping these ideas help you out and get the creative juices flowing.  If you are doing these ideas or anything of your own please share...I'd love to see! ;D  Have a fabulous weekend!

Don't forget to live intentionally! ;D
