DIY Project Life Cards - 'Washi' & Words

Hello, Friends!

Welcome to another Monday with Angi! Do you scrapbook? I have never been a traditional scrapbooker (is there such a thing anymore?!), but I have always used pocket pages/page protectors. I love collecting ephemera: tickets, receipts, stories of the every day...anything that tells or represents the story.

Royal Sterling Embossing Enamel
I also love embossing powder. Seriously. It's my favorite, never want to be without, go-to supply item. You can add shine, texture, richness, color, etc. to a project with this simple powder that magically transforms with heat! And have you seen the Embossing Enamel powders in the Globecraft & Piccolo shop? They're fabulous!

Mossy Glen Embossing Enamel
I'm a list maker, note jotter, doodle in the notebook kind of girl, so I used supplies I have on hand to make a few simple 3x4 cards to throw in my purse to jot down the stories, quotes, things my kiddos say or whatever is on my mind. Eventually, the cards will be placed in our family album.

Here are the Enamel Powders I used for these cards:

Love this idea! Even if you weren't a project lifer these would make great journal cards for traditional scrapping too! :)

we used stamped index cards for my daughter's wedding. the guest left notes for them and dropped them in a suitcase --- I really wish I had known about the deep blue sky powder at that time ------ the blue would have been perfect --- this is an awesome idea.
