Studio Calico Double Scoop Reveal

Project Life | Week 31 & 32

It’s been a crazy 3 weeks I’ve travelled back to back, and this should be a good reason why I’ve been so late posting my project life pages using Studio Calico Double Scoop kits? *laugh*.

No seriously, I’ve hardly any time to myself these days thanks to my work which have taken me on a roller coaster ride the past months. I hope it will settle down soon so I can devote more time to staying current on my project life and also blogging.

Here’s what I’ve got for September Double Scoop – Project Life Kit, Sprinkles, Licorice, Mint Chip and Cotton Candy Stamp Add-on. Gotta love these kits over and over again!

Oh, please pardon my error on the weeks I’ve recorded. I think all the traveling has taken a toll on my brain and I got my title cards one week behind! Duh!

So, Week 30 is actually my Week 31 and Week 31 is actually my Week 32. Did you get me? *laugh*

I hope you’re not as confused as I am. I’m going to get this fixed on my actual pages but not the pictures. I only realized the week title card mistake after I photographed my pages. I think I need a planner soon to keep track of my weeks.

Week 31 (corrected)

Supply list - SprinklesLicoriceMint ChipCotton Candy Stamp Add-on, Double Scoop Printable Labels by Hello Forever, Double Scoop Printable by Blinks Of Life, Double Scoop Printable by In A Creative Bubble.

Week 32 *(Corrected)

Supply list – Double Scoop Project Life KitDouble Scoop Printable Labels by Hello ForeverDouble Scoop Printable by Blinks Of LifeDouble Scoop Printable by In A Creative Bubble, Clip Cut Design by Hello Forever, Back to School Cut Designs by Shanna Noel.

Have a great week ahead!

well leena, your mistake is nothing compared to mine: I’v been wrong labelling my weeks since april, and I noticed it just a few days ago.. but what can I do now? for me this year will count 53 weeks! anyway your entries are simply gorgeous, so neat and still faboulus!

LindaSeptember 11, 2013 - 10:42 pm

Love what you did with that frame card, going to have to copy that. I have to write my week numbers down or I am completely lost.. Tell Ethan I still love that Lego E it’s awesome.

Thanks Linda! I’ll tell Ethan about his Lego. :)

Love your project life, so inspiring. Just wondered if you could please share what stamps you used to write week, happy birthday etc with?

Project Life | Week 28 & 29

Project Life | Week 28 & 29

Right now, I’m 29 weeks into my Project Life, a journey I couldn’t imagine I would come this far. Looking back at how I gave up around Week 14 last year, I’m really proud of myself for persevering week after week this year. If you ask me if I’m enjoying every minute of putting my pages together, I truly and really do. I find it so fulfilling seeing them come together, when I flip through those pages, I beam with pride and happiness, more so when my family and friends enjoyed going through each page with big smiles on their faces, it resonate with my feelings.

And here are another two weeks of my spread that I completed earlier this month, using Becky Higgins Midnight core kit printed from the digital version. I added bits and pieces of embellishments from my Studio Calico kits and my personal stash.

Week 28

Over time, I’ve changed my style of documenting each card on my Project Life. I’m now using a lot of white base card, keeping it as clean as possible with the focus on the photos, adding just a few embellishments here and there.

What I love about Midnight kit is that the cards are very clean and easy to work on. I love the color scheme and design. Liz Tamanaha is amazingly talented in creating this kit!:)

Week 29

If you notice, I would consistently use labels, wood veneer, chipboard stickers, washi tapes, stamp and occasional flair button on my pages. These are the few essential and favorite items that I would often use on my spreads. And I believe that’s more than sufficient to complete a full two-page spread.:)

I hope you’re still enjoying your Project Life and keeping up at your own pace. Whatever it is, whether you’re one or two or ten weeks behind, it is ok. You’ll get there eventually. Don’t give up.:)

I’ve been asked if I’m going to share my Project Life process on video, how I put my spread together, I’m still thinking how I’m going to video it. It’ll definitely be a no voice tutorial in the video (you know how much I dislike hearing my own voice! *laugh*), just a quick run through of my process. You know, something like Charlie Chaplin voiceless film.;)

Let me try to set up my camera on tripod, get a good angle to shoot the video successfully. I hope I’ll be able to put the video together after a few tries. Wish me luck!

I’ll be back soon with more of my PL pages!:)

Hello Krabi!

I’ve created a layout for Studio Calico Weekly Challenge this week together with Jen Jockish and I hope you’ll hop over to their blog to join in the fun!:)

Our challenge is to make a photo collage and incorporate it into our layouts. Photo collage is a great way to tell a story of an event with a sequence of photos. In my page, I used Picasa to make a collage of photos from my trip to Krabi last December. You can also make a photo collage using your phone with collage apps and then download it to your computer and print right away. One of favorite photo collage phone apps is PicFrame. Another favorite of mine is PhotoShake, which I’ve used to collage my week’s photos on my Instagram.

In my layout here, I used 100% products from Studio Calico Atlantic collection. This is by far my favorite collection of Studio Calico! I love almost everything from Atlantic, from the wood veneer, stickers, cork shapes, pattern papers, vellum shapes etc.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this page of mine and do pop over the challenge post to join in the fun and share your new project for this challenge in the SC gallery, then link up your project in the post by August 26th to be entered to win a $5 GC to the Studio Calico Shop!

Have a great weekend ahead!
