Make | 6×8 Project Life – May Title Page

6x8 Project Life | May 2014 title page | Blackbird Darlin

I’ve noticed that the pocket pages that appeal to me most always have bits of ephemera in them…things that aren’t anything real special, but reference what the world is like now. (Jamaica’s pages are a great example, and one of my biggest inspirations right now) I’ve always loved, loved, loved magazines, so why not start cutting things I like out of them and add them in? Then, when I’m an old lady, I can remember what I liked in addition to what I did. BONUS!

I’ve decided to group these kind of pages by month…the May title card is a free printable from Caylee Grey‘s fabulous blog, and the quote (a Ron Swanson spin-off) is something I found on Pinterest that I customized myself. The lovely dress image is cut from a May issue of one of my magazines, and I wish it was in my closet right now.

Sometimes I just want to sit down and make something, but I don’t want to work with actual pictures, so this is a pretty fun solution!

Supplies Used: “May” card (Caylee Grey), blue card (One Little Bird Busy Week cards), “#LOVE” card (Miss Tiina Good Life cards), wood heart (Citrus Twist), letter stamps (Studio G), font for quote (Sue Ellen Francisco)

    I like this style of memory keeping as well. It’s more like what we did as teenagers and it is a great picture of current life. Thanks for the inspiration.

      I still have a big, plastic bin of random stuff I kept through my teens! One of these days I want to get it all into a large format PL album. Even back then I was a paper hoarder :)

    This is going to be so fun looking back on. When I was a teen, I used to cut things out of magazines and glue them into notebooks. I loved looking through them, but when I moved on my own I threw them out thinking they were dumb. But then a few years later I discovered scrapbooking and wished I had kept them. Oh well!

    I love this idea. I remember being a teenager and finding a stack of Life magazines in my grandparents garage….I loved looking at the old ads the best! Seeing how things have changed. Interesting idea for a page. Tfs
