Marcy Penner » scrapbooking and everyday life.



One of the the things I love about the Studio Calico Project Life® kit is how easily it works with regular scrapbooking.  I’ll normally do a few Project Life® spreads with the kit and then put everything that’s left over into a tray with my scrapbooking kits.

I’m an equal opportunity scrapper.

One of my favorite techniques is treating the cards like pieces of patterned paper and just running them across the page.  I made a video that goes over a bit of my thinking and my process for putting together this page in case you’re interested.

If you want to give this a shot but aren’t subscribing to the Project Life® kits, you can find some free journaling card printables in the digital shop to get you going.

Between posts on my website you can find me sharing ideas and stories on Instagram.  You can follow me here.
