Mini pockets + labels – Project Life.

I’m always after cool new ideas to try out for Project Life and paper crafting.

I stumbled across this delightful blog today by Erica Hernandez. It’s jam packed with Project Life ideas, printables, craftiness and pretty pictures. I spotted this idea from Erica... to print onto label sheets. HOW COOL is that!

And instantly had to try it out..I only had a few Avery labels on hand and I wanted to have a few different designs, so I chose some digital papers from Paislee Press and layered them onto an A4 page in Photoshop.

If you are particular (I’m not!), you could certainly do a test print and see where your paper designs print on a blank page and then add your labels over the top to make sure the paper designs print on the labels you want and theres no overlap..but I didn’t do that.. I just eye balled it to line it up and off I went and my printed designs hit the labels I wanted without any issues..

I used double sided tape to attach the label sheets to my blank A4 page and fed it through my printer.

And voila! Pretty printed labels ready to add to your work. Easy peasy!

So what can you do with these pretty labels??

How about using them to decorate these super duper 3x4inch printable journaling card holders.Perfect for Project Life when you have more of a story to tell and can’t fit it on a standard 3x4inch journaling card..

Now I love a good hidden journaling pocket and I m the first to admit I love to tell a good story so I tend to have a LOT of journaling in my Project Life spreads…so this idea of Erica’s (she is a clever chicky!) really appealed to me..

And the printed stickers were the perfect, simple finishing touch for these envelopes..And here’s my little cards waiting to be filled with journaling notes and bits and pieces!!!

    Thank you so much for the kind words! Very happy I could inspire you (though I’m jealous that your labels are so much prettier than my utilitarian grid!)
