Card Swap Group, July

The challenge I set for July was to use black, white and either pool party or bermuda bay.  I was amazed at how quickly everybody has made their cards this time around, and they're all fab.  Anyway, here's mine:

I used up my last piece of pool party cardstock for the base so I couldn't afford for anything to go wrong!  (No pressure!) The base paper is from a black and white set I've had for ages (docrafts I think).  Then I had to play with my new toy tool which is my Sizzix polaroid die.  It really is the most awesome thing.  I bought it primarily for my Project Life folder but I went on Pinterest and saw some fab cards made with it and just had to have a go.
The stamp is, of course, Summer Silhouettes, in black and pool party and the flower is a Marianne die.  I stamped the sentiment and was thrilled that it came out perfectly on the frame.
I had a lot of fun making this and got loads of ideas for more cards.  This challenge just reminded me why I love this colour com…

Project Life Progress

Hello all!
I'm still having loads of fun with Project Life.  I've kept a diary all my life but I'm also a woman who likes a lot of paper and PL definitely satisfies that side to my character.  In fact I've decided that PL is the place to keep all those little stickers, notes, leaflets and postcards that you just can't live without.  So instead of tucking them away in a box somewhere, they'll be in my album where I can look at them and get pleasure from them every day.

 This is a spread from early June.  I am dithering now as to which layout I prefer, because at the time it was this one but now I think I prefer Design A because I've learned to treat all the 6x4 pockets as mini scrapbook pages, but it took a while (and many, many hours trawling Pinterest!) to work out how to do those.
 The colour scheme for this page turned out to be Calypso Coral and Pear Pizzazz but I didn't plan this at the outset, it just worked out that way. I wanted to use photos …
