Anyone who has Project Life knows we give you plenty of supplies in that little box. Chances are, you have some extra cards in your stash. Right?
Creative Team member MaryAnn has put her extra cards to excellent use. She whipped up a DIY project that you’re going to want to pin. (No – I’m still not on Pinterest. I’m holding strong, ladies.)
This is a memory game that she made using filler cards from the Amber Edition of Project Life, and the cards are stored in a 3×4 journaling card box. MaryAnn says, When I was a kid I loved to play Memory. I can recall countless hours of fun playing the game with my parents and siblings. I wanted something fun and small to take with us while we are traveling by plane cross country on our summer vacation this year. It’s a twist to the traditional game of memory match-up using family photos.
I have also started working on a Go Fish game using the same concept as the memory game. I love it! The best part about both of these games is that just when my girls think they know all of the cards or have it mastered, I simply switch the photos to more recent ones and totally update the game. Love it! Well … really the best part is the look on the girls faces as the play the game. That is priceless and it just makes my heart smile!
Of course you don’t need to use Project Life 3×4 Journaling Cards. It’s just convenient with those because they’re pre-cut and pre-designed. You can certainly use full sheets of cardstock and trim to your desired size. I did this several years ago and used the same pattern on the back of ALL the cards.
