minialbum: inspiration 2014

minialbum: inspirational quotes 2014 | cover | momentstolivefor.com

After the big move I was tired of sorting through endless rows of boxes and putting everything into place. So I did a little scrapbooking. On Pinterest I had a collection of motivational posts and quotes for the new year. Because I couldn’t choose between all these helpful and inspiring quotes, I decided to select more and turn them into a minialbum.

It was fun to use my two stamp and all of my sticker alphabets for this project. I love most about this mini, that it’s that simple. Just typography plus a little color and black & white patterns on the left side for contrast. Now it stands on my shelf above my desk and reminds me of my mantras for this year. Now and then I turn the pages to choose another quote for some time.

DIY black & white Project Life cards

Inspired by these beautiful black & white Project Life cards and postcards, I designed my own set of PL cards. Last year I was in a Project Life hype. I loved the possibilities to capture our everyday so simple and fast in a PL album. And even more than that, I liked the idea of creating my own PL cards. You can see my first set of PL cards here. At the end of the year I got lots of new stamps from Elise Blaha-Cripe (no longer available), Bananafishstudio and I lowe Scrap. I treasure these stamps. And they are perfect for Project Life. So I started to make this card set.

As basis for the cards, I cut 3×4 in white cards from simple card stock. Then I used the lovely stamps and stamped on white and black cardboard with StazOn White and Black ink pad. With two different hole punchers (1” and 2’’) and some manual cutting with scissors I cut the circles. For the different backgrounds I used my beloved black & white washi tapes and black & white ink pens. The last step was to cut the corners with my corner rounder of We R Memory Keepers. And that’s it. It took me only one evening to finish the entire set.
