Stampin' Up! Grand Vacation Achiever's Blog Hop Inspired By Project Life!

GV Blog Header

Hey there and welcome to the October Grand Vacation Achievers Blog Hop! This month's theme is "Inspired by Project Life".  We hope you find great inspiration from the projects shared here by Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from across the globe!

You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog, Carol Payne Stamps, or may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects.
It just happened that my project for today is one I created for a sweet couple at my church having their first baby, a boy named Carson. They are a farm family, very into John Deere tractors, so I created the gift packaging, and a large portion of the gift, with a "John Deere Green" theme!
I used punch art for the tractor on the gift bag, 50+ thank-you notes, and the Kraft 6"x8" Project Life Album!
Every new mother needs thank-you notes! I kept these simple so I could make a bunch! The "ground" is a 1/4" wide strip of Kraft 12" x 12" Corrugated Paper that I added to the bottom of the Whisper White Note Cards.
Here's tutorial to make the tractor. Click to download:
I translated the tiny tractor into a larger size for the gift bag and the album cover. I cut Carson's name with Big Shot Little Letters Thinlets.
This new mommy also teaches 4th grade so I knew she wouldn't have time to attempt "traditional" scrap booking, but I gave her a Project Life Album all ready to go, and she is eager to give it a try!
I included:
139655SKraft 6" x 8" Project Life Album # 139655 $10.00
135297S 6" x 8" Variety Pack Project Life Photo Pocket Pages #135297 $6.00
135874S6" x 8" Project Life Envelope Pages #135874 $5.00
138457SHello Baby Boy Card Collection #138457 $16.00
138458SHello Baby Accessory Pack #138458 $10.00
I also included a pack of  Project Life 3" x 4" Grid Cards #136528 $3.50 and Project Life Journaling Pens #135304 $5.00.
Carson's mommy is SO EXCITED to give Project Life a try! I refer to it as "scrap booking with baseball cards", it's that easy!
There are several themes of Project Life cards and accessories available from Stampin' Up! Check them out and order in my online store:
