JAI #326 Just Add Project Life

Hello there,
we had a wonderful burst of spring weather last week but sadly it didn't last. (I wasn't optimistic that it would but it's hard not to hope). However, it did inspire a very spring like project for this week's Just Add Ink challenge. This week Rochelle has challenged us to Just Add Project Life (PL). You can make a PL scrap page or use your PL supplies to make a card. I went the card route.

I pulled out a new PL card pack  - Hello Lovely (which is just plain lovely!) and picked some favourites. In the end my short list came down to one with a gorgeous flowering wreath and one with bold B&W stripes - so I used both! This came together pretty quickly (ok trimming out the wreath took a while but it's very therapeutic). I just stitched some vellum over the B&W base mat then added the wreath mounted on dimensional. That allowed me to inset a glimmer mat, gold thread and sequins, then all I had to was add a sentiment - and I was done!

It ended up just perfect for another popular spring occasion - weddings :)

Hope you join in the Project Life fun this week. Do go check out the rest of the JAI DT to see what fabulous PL projects they have come up with.

  1. You're so right, the Hello Lovely PL kit is just plain lovely! Your card is exquisite. Absolutely adore that you fussy cut the wreath and added the glimmer underneath. Once again the inside of your card is as breathtaking as the outside. I think I must COPY (not even CASE) this one. I love it. xx

  2. PS: I was lulled into a false sense of spring last week too. Shame it didn't last!

  3. Your card is simple gorgeous! And that PL card collection is my favorite this year - so elegant! I love how you cut out the wreath, it looks absolutely wonderful. TFS!

  4. So totally gorgeous, Kim! Your details in your wreath are indeed stunning and I adore how you've mounted it over the sparkly glimmer and then the stitched vellum over the stripes - another lovely layer of luxury. P is right - this is one to copy :-) xx

  5. Just "WOW"..I'm totally blown away by your design Kim and as always the stunning details that keep me going back for another look...Beautiful work lovely! xx

  6. Kim this must have taken ages to fussy cut but the end result was totally worth it, this is a beautiful card!
