SN@P! - Project Life

I shared a LO with you earlier this month using the Simple Stories - SN@P Project Life cards. Today I am going to share a couple of Project Life pages with you that I've been working on.

I've used the same cards.
The 3x4 cards here, like these.

And this time I've also used a pack of the 4x6 cards here.
There are several different collections to choose from in both sizes.

They make the Project Life pages very easy to put together and as you can see here, very colourful too.

  I thought I would share with you today some of my tips when using these cards.

Using all the cards from the same collection makes it quick and easy as everything will match. I have mixed up some of the 3x4 and the 4x6 cards here by adding some of the smaller cards to the larger cards. The 'TODAY' card is a 3x4 for example that I've stuck down on a larger card. So are the 'Good Stuff' and the 'Monday' cards.
You don't have to use the journal cards as they intend you to do. There are no rules. This card here 'YOU' is a journal card for a list. I didn't want to write a list though so I used it to journal what we did on the children's inset day. Don't get stuck on writing what the card tells you to do. 
My next page.
 I bought some new Project Life Page Protectors this month. I love these from Simple Stories.
Something I have just started doing is adding a staple at the top of each card. No matter which page protectors I've used, I've still found that the cards move around and some have fallen out. I didn't really want to add a staple, but at the end of the day. I've no plans to remove them and this way I don't have to worry about loosing any.
I've mixed the cards up again here. I needed to trim some down. The '14-19' card had the left side cut down to make it fit, but I then added it here to make the smaller card larger.
See the 'details' card. That has the rest of the card above stuck on the right side so it fit the larger wallet. I've done this a few times on this page.
And if you are struggling to find space to journal, why not journal around the outside of your cards.
I hope you have found these hints helpful.
Thanks for stopping by today.
