Project Life | Week 7

Project Life | Week 7

It’s the time of the month again and I’m back with another update on my Project Life spread!:)

I have to admit that I’m surprised at being able to keep up with my Project Life to date. I thought it would be much more difficult than I expected but I think I got into the grove again when I started anew from day one of 2013. And I’m glad I’m keeping up well. All thanks to Studio Calico for their amazing goodies! Hah! You see, I need the “push” factor to keep me on track but it is all for my own good.;)

So, here’s my week 7, filled with so much gorgeous, fun and bright colored products from the new Studio Calico Snippets collection! This is by far one of my favorites collection from Studio Calico. I’m loving each and every piece of the product in this line. So much so I a bit of a heartache using them. *laugh*

Week 7

If you notice, I used white base cardstock for almost all of my cards, except for a couple of 3×4 cards which I cut out from the Me Oh My pattern paper which you can cut out to use as journal cards.

The reason why I use all white base cards so that the background of each card is not too busy with too much patterns. I want the focus to be on my pictures and journaling. So what I do is just to cut out pieces of pattern papers just enough to add a touch to each card. Once my pictures are in place, I’ll add bits and pieces of labels, washi tapes, stickers, alphas, wood veneer etc. You get the idea.:)

I’ll let the close up shots do the rest of the talking. You will see the details on each of my card and how I put them together. Let me warn you, this post will include a lot of pictures so grab yourself a cup of coffee of tea and enjoy my post!:D

    I just love your style, Leena! I can get lost in your pages, looking at all your stuff. :) Now I understand why your backgrounds are so clean. Clever to use the white cardstock under everything.

    Love love love your pages. As always. Great use of the white background to make everything pop of the page!

    These pages are amazing, as always, and that title card is pure genius! I have been taking your tips to heart after your last comment to me & my week 8 has a lot more white in it. I do like using the bold colors from time to time, especially if I don’t have a lot of photos to share, but you’re definitely right about making the focus be about our stories/photos & not the supplies we use!!

    You are SO inspirational!! I first saw your work via your pictures on instagram and have now bookmarked your blog. You are such an AMAZING artist!! I love all the little bits and pieces of your Project Life inserts/cards and the way you pull it all together. Such a great eye!!

    I also love your organizational system…the old wooden boxes, cups, etc…I do the same thing. It’s so fun to see others using fun containers too. :)

    Mainly I just wanted to say YOU’RE AMAZING and a BIG thank you for sharing!!!
