Project Life Cards


This year I am trying to find ways to be more economical my crafting. So I recently bought some 12 x 12 pads at Michael’s on sale for $11.99 each at Michael’s.  I decided to use them to make cards for Project Life and cards for my Etsy shop. This first pad of paper is Heidi Swapp and I chose it for the colors. I definitely can make some masculine cards for my shop.


The pad included a few 4×6 and 3×4 cards and then I cut regular sheets too. It contained two of each designs so I pulled out one sheet of each design and then began cutting 4×6 and 3×4 cards. Look how many cards I was able to create out of this pad. And then I still have over twenty-five 12×12 sheets to make cards.

projectlifecards4Oh my, this second paper pack is just so pretty. It is even prettier in person. It is Recollections ‘Today, Tomorrow, Forever’ paper pack. It came with two sheets of cards too and look at the cool wood panel sheets.

projectlifecards6I love seeing the cards spread out on my desk but the container person I am also loves seeing them in the case after I finished cutting them.  I will then label them with the name of the paper pack and put them in my case.

If you have never done this before, wait until you see a sale on paper packs and buy one then sit down and cut out cards while watching TV and before you know it you will have a bunch of beautiful Project Life cards.

Have a blessed day!



  1. What a great idea. I have a butterfly fettish myself. Although I’m really obsessed with flip flops – absolutely LOVE them. Thanks for sharing the idea of cutting them all down. And what a great storage idea.
