My Creative Scrapbook September Main Kit- Project Life

I have the fourth project to share today, and its one of my favourite things to do!  PROJECT LIFE.  I dont get nearly as much time to do it, and I strive to catch up on it, but I am just a bit behind.....I will succeed sometime I guess!!!  LOL

I thought I would include a little of my process in this post as well.
I used the September Main Kit for My Creative Scrapbook.

Heres the spread all together.  Using lots of MME and WRMK from the Chalkboard collections.

I dont tend to use the Pre produced Project Life Brand cards, as I have so much stuff in my stash that is perfect to use up on PL Spreads.  I really enjoy the process of creating my own cards as well.
So here is how I started.

All the cards are usually either 6x4, 3x4 (half a 6x4) or 4x4.  

I choose the page pockets that are 6x4 and 3x4.  
Easy cuts to create these sizes.

When you are cutting up a 12x12 sheet of patterned paper, 
 just cut in half- (6x12)

turn, then make 2 cuts at 4 inches... (2  6x4)
now just cut those pieces in half according to the number of 3x4's you need.

Lay them all out according to the Page Pockets you are using for your spread.

Using my Corner Chomper, I cut the corners with the 1/4 inch side to round them, making them all uniform.  They look really nice with the rounded corners.

 Now piece your cards together as you go, I glue down when I am sure, and then just keep adding until I am happy with them.  If you keep them all in their place, you can get a good look at how they will all mesh together.

I then add all my stitching, pen lines and accents and text, to finish it all off!

And thats week 31 done and dusted!!!

Thanks for dropping in today!
