Project Life | 2014 Week 3
Hello and welcome back to my Project Life 2014. This week’s spread was completed together with my Week 2 as I spent a good part of a Saturday more than a week ago trying to catch up after I’ve been slacking for weeks. I was definitely glad to be productive again after making lots of excuses why I was so many weeks behind, I’m feeling exhausted after work, Ethan started new school year so I’m spending more time with his school work, Chinese New Year is approaching so there’s lot of preparation needs to be done, blah blah blah. *laugh* Well, all of those excuses were valid but I could have done something in between the days to stay current. But like I said again and again before, my priorities are my family and work, so Project Life can definitely wait.
Here’s what I did for my Week 3.
I used my own stash to put this spread together as I felt the need to use up whatever I’ve bought and not hoard them for the next 10 years.
Awhile back I bought the Pink Paislee Color Wash 6×6 paper pad together with some coordinating embellishments from the same collection such as the Chipboard Title Stickers, Canvas Stickers and Color Magic Alphas by Heidi Swapp, all from Two Peas In A Bucket. So, I put them to good use on this spread and I love how they turned out. I got the Pink Paislee Color Wash because of the soft pastel colors from the line. They add a really nice touch to my spread without overwhelming my photos.
I’ve also used my Kikki.K stickers I bought from their store in Singapore. The Dreaming Sticker Book consist of 10 pages of adorable stickers, labels and gift tags. The other items I used are my must have essentials for Project Life – wood veneer, enamel dots, alphas chipboards, printable labels and 4×6 grid cards from Studio Calico.
Here’s a closer look of my Week 3 left page.
The cute clouds and birds stickers are from Kikki.K Dreaming Sticker Book. The alphas are by Pink Paislee Color Wash and Heidi Swapp Color Magic.
The banner label on the right card is from Studio Calico Sugar Rush PL Kit and gold heart chipboard stickers are from Studio Calico Essential Gold Hearts Chipboard (came in Cherry Sours PL add-on)
Sometimes I love to split my landscape photo and lay them onto two 3×4 cards like this one above. The tag is from Dear Lizzy Polka Dot Party Accent and Phrase Sticker Book. The white mini alphas are by American Craft Hanna & Henry Letter and Number Sticker Book that I bought from my local scrapbook store.
The alphabets used here is from Color Magic Alphas by Heidi Swapp and white camera paper clip is from my shop.
Printing wallet size photos is now my weekly routine. If you need to know how I print wallet size and Instagram photos, you can read about my post here.
And here are the rest of my close up images for the right page.
The chipboard alphas is from AC Thickers Sketchbook in aqua which used to be from Studio Calico Snippets collection but it’s no longer available in the shop. Maybe you can try Google it online and see if you can find it. It’s by far one of my favorite alphas by AC Thickers.
This Go See Do card was from the Moments Cards which was released during Valley High kit but it’s no longer available. These photos were taken on our first family boat ride along Singapore River. That evening was perfect with a nice breezy weather and we’ve enjoyed the ride very much, cruising slowly along the CBD, Boat Quay and Clark Quay. When the sky turned dark, we could see those beautiful lights lighting up the restaurants and river bank. Such an awesome sight we should have done this earlier.
The ice-cream card is from Sugar Rush Project Life Kit. It matches well with the photo of my boys taken while we had ice cream at Haagen Dazs at the Esplanade.
One of the rare moments where the hub and I get to take a photo of ourselves.
That big circle stamp is from Studio Calico add-on stamp set Lollies. Unfortunately, it’s sold out.
Well, I hope you’ve enjoyed my spread and once again, thank you all for your lovely messages in my last post on Week 2. I’m glad to hear you’ve enjoyed watching my video on my process of putting my pages together.
I’ll see you in a couple of days with Studio Calico March kit sneaks coming up soon!
