These next two pages are both created with the latest Core Edition to hit the digital shelf, Kiwi (previously released 7/14), and it is awesome with pops of turquoise, pink and blacks. Love this kit and I know I will keep coming back to it because it so versatile! Also … I think I having a little love affair with template S lately. Just Sayin’.

Just a note : all the little embellishments were created by taking bits & pieces from the kit Journal Cards. I just “digitally” cut little circles or rectangles around the pieces that I wanted to use on my page. A few of the stamped words were simply extracted with the magic wand tool … like the LOVE stamp in white above. The only exception is the little white “makes me smile” stamp in the first sample page, which comes from the Stampin Up’ Everyday Adventures kit (as noted in the Supply Credits). Thanks for looking! xoxo

Memory Keeping … new Digital Project Life and Dollar Days at Pixel & Co.

It’s July! Yay for summer! The kids finally got out of school last week and this is our first full week of summer vacation. We are taking it easy, and enjoying just chilling … with no schedule, no early morning wake-ups, and lots of down time. Life is good.

After a very hectic last few weeks, I am enjoying creating scrapbook pages again. I had not been on my computer much the last week or two and it feels great to open up Photoshop again.

If you are a Digital Project Lifer, then you have to check out the newly released Value Kits. Last week was the darling Enjoy Life Value Kit. This week it is the Good Times kit, on sale, of course. (psst: next week there will be a new Value kit too!) It is so versatile … with a black and white color scheme and chalkboard theme. I used it on this page, mixed with bits and pieces I cut out of Amy Tangerine’s Midnight Edition. I love the look of these two kits mixed together.

A closer look at embellishing & customizing Project Life Title Cards

If you follow my Project Life layouts, you know I try to keep my pages pretty simple and clean. If you follow my regular digital scrapbooking pages … you know I am in love with details … all the little embellishments that help draw the eye into the page and help tell the story.

Sometimes my Project Life pages, meet my digital scrapbooking pages and I get a sort of marriage of the two.

This layout, summarizing my daughters U11 soccer year is still a pretty simple and clean Project Life event page … but it does add in a few extra details to round out the story telling.

PL_SoccerMini_JennM

In the spotlight on Becky Higgins’ blog found here, I choose this layout to share with Becky’s blog readers. One reader asked about how I created the title card. I thought it best to put it in a post, so all the details could be shared.

I started with this amazing Soccer Theme Kit found here.

bh_soccer_prev_1024x1024

Here’s a look at the card I used as the base for my title card.

bh_football_4x6journal__6

I added some adorable bits of embellishments from Dani Mogstad’s Playball Kit found here.

Play_Ball_Comple_51684c0db6dcd__38740.1390109550.1280.1280

Form Dani’s preview, you can see the adorable soccer ball, the star rounds, and the already stapled & folded ribbon … so cute! (and the perfect colors too.)

So I added them onto my base journal card as shown below:

PL_SoccerMini_titlecard

and then I just added some fun fonts to finish off the Title Card.

Soccer is done in Chalk Hand Lettering Shaded Demo

Highlights is done in Varsity

U11 2012 -2013 uses Eurostile

Journaling is Traveling Typewriter

Because the soccer ball and star round from Dani’s kit has a slightly distressed look to them, I used a textured brush to erase & distress my font a bit for the title “Soccer Highlights”. I also turned the words into a sticker and added a drop shadow.

Hope that helps show how you can take a basic journal card and add a few simple touches to create a custom Title Card. Thanks for reading.
