Project Life Cinnamon Core Kit by Design Team Member Elizabeth Wiederspohn

Hi!  My name is Elizabeth Wiederspohn and I am glad to be back on the Craft Warehouse Blog again.                                                                      Have I ever mentioned I love working with Project Life cards?  I am addicted.  OK, I prefer passionate.  The cards make scrapbooking easy and beautiful in minutes.  Whether you are just starting to scrapbook or you have been scrapbooking for years your albums look beautiful in the simple form or awesome altered in a million ways.  

Project Life Layout:  Embrace June 

The Project Life Cinnamon Core Kit was so fun and adventurous to work with this month.  I loved working with the browns, greys and blues.  It was perfect for my family and our summer fun. 

Supplies Used:

Cinnamon Project Life Core Kit
Fancy Pants 1" Chalk Tape
Fancy Pants 1/2" Chalk Tape
Fancy Pants Cork Shapes Arrows
Fancy Pants  Memories Captured Flair
Pebbles Chalkboard ABC Letter Stickers
Darice Sequins
My Minds Eye Alpha and Word Stickers Sky's the Limit
White Gel Pen
ATG Adhesive

I scrapbook Project Life monthly.  This makes my Project Life pages a little busier than most but I love the look and the preview of what happened in our lives that month.

I take photos of everything.  Many subjects tell a story and deserve more than one picture in my scrapbook albums.  Some stories are simple and can be told in one photo, receipt, or piece of memorabilia.  I place all these stories in my month review Project Life layout.  Most the time, if I am going to scrapbook the photos I took later on in a standard page I only title the photo.  If this is the only place this story will live, I journal all about it on the monthly Project life page.

If you would like more about how I put together this type of page, I have a video explaining my process on Youtube.

So, The Question is... 

If you are like me, you can't buy just one of these awesome Project Life kits.  (I am passionate about it you know.)  In fact, I am doing a Project Life layout monthly instead of every week and I have used a different kit every month. So, the question I ask myself is, what do you do with all the other awesome cards that come in the kit?  I found a few other uses you may have fun creating yourself. 

Note Cards 

One of the easiest uses for Project Life cards is for writing notes to your friends and loved ones.  I used my Project Life cards to write notes to my daughter at camp and then I hid them in different parts of her suitcase so she would find them while she was gone. I can imagine using them in lunch boxes, thank you cards or any other time you want to write a quick fun note. 

Project Life Card Organizer: 

Believe it or not, this Project Life card organizer was made with eight Project Life cards, Pebbles letter stickers, gems, twine, chipboard and two sheets of craft paper.  Well, you can also add a ton of adhesive.  At a little over four inches wide and five inches tall, this is the perfect size to fit in my purse to document all my special Project Life moments.  

Standard Layouts: 

I used over fourteen Project Life cards on this layout.  Who said you have to use all your Project Life cards in pocket pages?  I loved using the word art and patterns in my hexagons.  It added so much fun and interest to my page.   

Mini Albums:
Another great use of the Project Life cards is making a Mini Album.  I used them to document our last vacation to Great Wolf Lodge.  These cards were PERFECT!    More on that project to come.  :) 

Hope you enjoyed.  You can find more of my projects at my blog!


  1. Your projects turned out awesome Elizabeth! Especially love the album cover and how you cut the cards into hexagons to use in a traditional way. :)

  2. Thanks for the inspiration!
