Project Life 2012: Cover Pages

Project Life 2012 cover page
 I posted over on 2Peas that I'm intimidated by my Simple Stories kits, and I am, really. This one, Life Documented, has sat unopened for over a year now. Many kind Peas jumped in and immediately offered encouragement and words of advice, telling me to just jump in, cut the paper, and get going. For this kit I at least had a plan. I wanted to make them part of my Project 365, a sort of "sum up" pages for each month since they helpfully come with labels for each month. This here is my "title" page. The intro into the whole Project 365 idea. It's basically just three of the pre-made elements put together. I'm not used to using pre-made elements like this, or working within a theme, but it certainly took a lot of the guesswork out of scrapping! 

And this here will be the final page of the Project 365. Hopefully at the end of the year I'll have something profound to say. These two pages were leaning heavily on the stickers provided with the kits for embellishments and honestly, I don't know what I will use to embellish as I'm really embellishment challenged.

Well, this is my first try at the Simple Stories paper. With the help of the Peas I have a lot of examples to go on (some I straight up want to copy), so we'll see how it goes from here.


  1. Great job with those papers! I love those Simple Stories collections!

  2. Love how you did the pages! I still haven't used mine either. Maybe I should give it a try.

  3. Great job! Sometimes you just have to play with them once before you fall in love.

  4. Simple Stories is simply amazing! I love your page..

  5. So glad to see you got to use these! I think the pages came out great! Thanks for sharing.

  6. So, Aeryn, I am new to the blog scene and listed you on my blog list. How do I make sure you get credit for this? I just don't know how it works and know that You can get recognition for this if I'm not mistaken. (Please do NOT reciprocate as I don't want everyone to know about my blog yet!) I'm just trying to do the right thing and not sure if I am doing it right.
