These Project Life spring pages are so bright and cheerful. They feature the gorgeous Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper and the Flower Shop Stamp Set and coordinating paper punch. Keep reading to learn how I put these 2 pages together.
Although I don’t have a lot of time to scrapbook anymore, I do try to keep up with my kids’ school albums. I do Project Life scrapbooking because it allows me to create pages quickly while still allowing me to be creative.
For each of my 4 children, I have albums for elementary school, middle school, and high school. I try to include the major events from each school year. I haven’t done any scrapbooking for this school year yet for my youngest daughter, so I decided it was time to remedy that.
The biggest event for my youngest daughter so far this year is that she went through Confirmation, was baptized, and took her first Communion. So I wanted to make one pocket scrapbooking layout for that event alone.
Although they aren’t shown in any of the pictures, I used 8.5X11 inch Project Life page protectors to include the certificates she got for completing Confirmation, being baptized, and being a full church member. The smaller Project Life page protectors are a great way to include certificates and memorabilia in your books!
The other side of the Project Life spread included various events from this spring – like youth group events, Solo & Ensemble competition, and Easter. Despite the fact that they are from different events, I like to continue with one consistent look across a 2 page spread. So I used the same paper and stamps on both layouts.
Supplies needed for these Project Life Spring Pages:
I use a Canon Selphy to print all my pictures for my Project Life pages. It prints quickly either wirelessly from my phone or using a flash drive. I love that I can print from home and don’t have to go to the hassle of running to the store to pick up prints!
Since I only use Project Life Design A Page Protectors to keep things simple, I print all my horizontal pictures as 4X6.
For the 3×4 vertical pictures, I go into PicMonkey and make a collage to include 2 photos on a 4×6 print. Then all I have to do is cut the picture down the middle and I have (2) 3×4 prints from one picture.
I save all my pictures to a flash drive and take them into my craft room to print them on my Selphy. One of these days I am going to have a computer in my craft room though 🙂
Project Life Baptism Page
On this Project Life baptism page, I included photos from the church service, the actual baptism, and the entire Confirmation class. Afterwards, I took a picture of the engraved Bible that my daughter was given as a gift from the church and included that as well.
A couple of pictures had a lot of blank space in the background so I cut those smaller and mounted them to designer series paper. For the picture of my daughter’s actual baptism, there was a lot of black in the background. So I broke that up a bit by adding 2 silver hearts from the Metallic Enamel Shapes embellishment pack.
I kept the title card fairly simple. The paper is so pretty, I wanted to see the design. I used letter dies to cut out the word “Baptism” from the mint macaron floral paper in the designer series paper pack. Then I mounted the letters on a strip of Sweet Sugarplum cardstock and adhered that to the middle of the title card.
Make Project Life Journal Cards for spring pages
With some patterned paper, a scrap of cardstock, and some embellishments, it is easy to make Project Life journal cards. I started by cutting 3×4 cards from the Mint Macaron floral paper. Then I cut 2-1/2″ X 3″ pieces of the Sweet Sugarplum cardstock which I stuck to the patterned paper with a tape runner.
I then stamped a flower from the Flower Shop stamp set onto Rich Razzleberry and Blushing Bride cardstock, using the same color ink as cardstock to make it tone on tone. I then punched both of those flowers out with the Pansy punch. (Love, love, love when there are coordinating punches or dies that go with stamps so I don’t have to fussy cut them out!)
My youngest daughter is all about the bling, so of course I had to add a bit of glitz to these Project Life pages. To add a bit of sparkle, I used the Pansy Punch to make 2 flowers from the Blushing Bride glitter paper and adhered them to the back of the stamped flowers. I used a circle punch to create the flower center with that same glitter paper. Then I glued the flowers to the corners of the journaling spaces.
Project Life Spring Layout Right Side
The right side of my Project Life spring layout included pictures from various events from the past 2 months. My daughter went to a paint your own pottery place with the church youth group, she competed in Solo & Ensemble with her school band, and then of course there was Easter.
I included a photo of the score board from Solo & Ensemble showing her rating (her ensemble got a superior!) and added a self-adhesive enamel dot on the picture to make it easy to find her group amidst all the other groups.
For the filler card on this page, I used the same stamped flower and glitter flower that I did on the Project Life baptism page. Since I am not going to include any journaling on this card, I just put a 1″ strip of the Mint Macaron floral paper in the center and then glued the flowers on top of that.
For this side, I wanted to make project life journal cards that had a lot more space for writing since there were so many events included in the photos on this page. So I used 4×6 cards from the floral print paper and added a 3-1/2″ X 5-1/2″ piece of Blushing Bride cardstock for the journaling. I added a glitter flower in the corner.
I was happy with how this Project Life spring layout turned out. I just love that paper. It made such a pretty 2 page spread!

I had so much fun putting these Project Life spring pages together for my youngest daughter. It was nice to have time to scrapbook again!
