SSS Project Life by Nichol Magouirk!

 
Hi bloggers! Happy Saturday to you! I'm so pleased to bring you a gorgeous Project Life layout by Nichol Magouirk! I'll let her tell you a bit more about her project and then let the great photos & video speak for themselves! Enjoy!

Hello Simon Says Stamp Friends! I'm so excited to be sharing a Project Life layout spread on the Simon Says Stamp Blog today! I love to use my stamps and dies not only for my card-making endeavors but for my scrapbooking and Project Life pages as well! I knew when the Life Bubble Craft Dies were released awhile back that they would be perfect for all kinds of projects but especially for Project Life style pocket pages!. I love being able to create customized "thought bubbles" to perfectly coordinate with my weekly photos and layout spread from whatever paper I choose! 
For the layout share today, I combined both pre-printed cards from Kelly Purkey's June/July Project Kit with custom die cut/stamped journaling cards I created from 6x6 paper, stamps and additional little goodies and embellishments. One of the things I keep in mind while putting together my PL page spreads is to keep them fairly "flat" with minimal bulky embellishments so that I'm able to fit a lot of pages into one album. One way to achieve dimension without the bulk is to use die cuts embellished with Glossy Accents. It adds a glossy dimensional layer but no bulk... I love that! Sequins are another favorite addition to my PL pages and dress up die cuts and stamping easily!

To see how I put my PL page spread together please watch the video below.
Thanks for hanging out with me today. I hope that I've been able to give you some ideas on how to incorporate Simon Says Stamp's fabulous stamps and craft dies into your PL or scrapbooking projects!

Thanks so much to Nichol for being a guest today and inspiring us to use SSS exclusives in our Project Life scrapbooking!!
