Do you ever feel like taking some of your Project Life supplies with you on a day trip or while you’re on vacation? As I was packing for a recent trip, I realized that I really wanted to work on Project Life while I was away, but I didn’t want to pack ALL of my supplies. After thinking about it for a while, I came up with a great way to pack and store just enough stuff to comfortably work on my Project Life Album.
I was able to pack everything I needed into a Project Life Core Kit Tray and a plastic mesh envelope. Below are the contents of my Project Life tray. It fit all the Project Life cards, my photographs, some alphabet stickers, and a few smaller stamp sets. I put adhesive, 6×12 sticker sheets, 4×6 stamp sets, and some black ink in the mesh envelope.
- Older Cards (separated by color): There are cards from older kits or embellishment packages that I haven’t gotten around to using yet. I store them by color because they work really well as the last few cards in a Project Life spread, and its easy to match the current color pallet if the cards are already sorted by color.
- Core kit cards: These are my go-to base cards. Neutral cards that match pretty much everything, its easy to run through this pile when I’m looking for a mostly blank journaling card or a filler card to take up a spot.
- Brand New Cards: The brand new cards get their own stack. These are the ones I’m usually most excited about using; and its great to spread this pile out on the table as I’m working and create a color scheme based on new cards that I’ve gotten from Studio Calico, Kelly Purkey, or whatever other Project Life cards I’ve picked up recently.
