project life journal cards | how to make your own

i have really embraced my new scrap plan- project life.
i’ve had a lot of fun shopping and searching pinterest for freebies.
i even made my own and shared them on my blog.

and then i kept making more and more and more.

i’ve collected quite a stash of digital scrap supplies and fonts. so i’ve been “shopping” my own stash and creating journal cards to use in my project life pages.

here are some recent cards i’ve made:

here is how i do it:
1. choose a color scheme. i use my color my world pinterest board for inspiration.
i take a screen shot and pull it into photoshop/

2. create a new 12×12 document with transparent background in photoshop

3. create a new layer and draw a 3×4 box with rectangular marquee tool (or use the rounded rectangular tool)

4. copy your shape so that you have 6-7 cards on your 12×12 document

5. and then the fun begins! embellish your cards with whatever you want or have! i use fonts/dingbats (a lot you can get for free) and digital brushes
using the color scheme you selected in step 1, change the color of your cards

6. use dingbats fonts to add words and images to your cards
here i used Pea Heather’s Doodle Phrases

here are a few more sets i made and i have so many more i want to make
remember to go “shopping” in your own stash- use what you have!

    Angela H. - Are you sharing these or selling them? They are gorgeous! I just discovered PL and am trying to learn PSE 11 now – literally. 😉 I’d really love a list of the fonts you used above. I am trying to find the one you used on – you make me happy when skies are gray….

    Julia - Hello,

    Thanks for sharing your tips.
    Can you tell me how do you do for using the color scheme you selected in step 1 to change the color of your cards?
    I really don’t know how to do this…
