When I posted about my project Life last week, I forgot to mention one thing: another way I found to save some money and use up my stash. After I downloaded all those journaling cards I realised that I didn't have any cardstock weight printer paper. I really didn;t want to purchase anything, and then I had an idea: why not use the backside of older patterned papers?
If you're like me, you probably still have some older single sided patterned papers in your stash. I quickly rifled through and found that the back of the papers from BasicGrey were perfectly white, plus I still liked many of the patterns. So I chose the colours and designs I liked, cut them down to letter sized and printed away.

The great thing about this (apart from saving money and using up older stuff) is that if I want to I can leave the backside of my journaling cards empty on the following page. Or I can use it as a mat for the other side.
Here's a look at how that worked for me last week.
On this side you can see the Details journaling card and on the back
I stuck two smaller cards to the patterned paper side.
On Wednesday I'll give an update about my Project Life organisation and share my Week 3 layouts.
