Oh wow, has it been 12 months already since I joined Studio Calico CT?!

The past one year was the best time of my life designing for Studio Calico. I still remember so vividly when I was invited to join the team last October, it was so surreal at that time. I felt so very honored to be part of Studio Calico team which is one of the most amazing manufacturers I’ve ever worked with. It has been a wonderful ride and I sincerely want to thank Studio Calico for the opportunity to work with them!:)

And earlier today, the new 2014 Creative Team was announced. I’m thrilled to be in the Project Life team for the 2nd year running, together with the other amazingly talented girls! A BIG congratulations to the 2014 Creative Team, I’m sure we’ll have another great year ahead!

Please do pop over to Studio Calico’s blog to get to know the new talented girls!:D

And here’s another fun part of the day. The January 2014 kit sneaks are out and I’m blown away again with the Copper Mountain kits!


Here are a couple of closer sneaks of the main Project Life kit, which I’m totally in love with! The cards, embellishments and the color theme are just gorgeous!


The PL add-on 1 Union Meadows is as equally awesome as the main! Look at the icon washi tape, plane paper clips, wood grain chipboard shape!!:D


And Studio Calico added another set of new add-on for PL! Oh, 2014 is going to be so great!


I simply cannot wait for my box to arrive early next week! My pictures are all printed and so ready for these kits!:D

Studio Calico is also offering this adorable Dog Lover’s Mini Kit exclusive to subscribers only. As a dog lover myself, this kit would be a perfect addition to my PL kits! I have two Jack Russell Terriers and I would definitely love to use them to document my fondest memories of my girls on my PL spread.:D


If you’re not a subscriber yet, do sign up to enjoy exclusive discounts and promotions.

I hope you’ve already prepare your shopping list and ready to go all out when reveal comes on the 27th December.;)

Have a great weekend ahead!

    Love the look of the PL kit and I may just have to get the add ons.

I’m finally home from my vacation! I can’t tell you enough how much my boys and I enjoyed ourselves in Phuket! It has been a fabulous trip for us and a well deserved break from work for the hub and me. I’ll be back in my next posting with photos I took of our vacation.:)

On a side note, I’m so happy that I’ll be contributing once again to Studio Calico Day By Day class this coming January 2014!

Project Life | Week 42 & 43

I was pretty excited & looking forward for this reveal day to come so I can show you when I said how much fun I had playing with the Studio Calico Blue Note kits. The PL cards and embellishments are just fabulous and well coordinated. I just can’t get enough of them!:)

I got the Blue Note Project Life Kit, the PL add-on Armstrong, SB add-on Bennett and card add-on Cole together with all the Blue Note printable. I created a spread using just the PL main kit and the other spread I used a mix of everything I’ve got.

Here are my spreads and I hope you’ll enjoy them.:)

I’ll be going off on a short family vacation to Phuket in two days time and I totally can’t wait for this break!

On the other hand, I’ve not started my December Daily update yet since I’ve been away on business trip from December 1st (just got home today) and I’ll be home after 10th only after my vacation. I’ll start soon after I return. Life has been on a fast track the past couple of months. I simply cannot find time to fix up my DD content page but I think I’ll be able to manage it.:)

Have a great day ahead!

    LOVE your layouts! I wish (OH HOW I WISH) the add on kits weren’t sold out! I would love to buy even just ONE of them! I was too late getting them! Still waiting to see your December Daily Album!!!! ;)

    Have fun in Phuket! I loved it there… now is the best time to go and the weather is amazing!

Have I been gone that long? Well, 2 weeks absence from this blog is considered a long period but then again, I have good reasons for being away this long.;)

Anyway, back to the topic of this post. Yes, I’ve got some sneaks for you of my Project Life using Studio Calico latest kit Blue Note, which will soon be released on the 27th, US time (28th in Singapore).

I cannot tell you how much fun I had playing with the Blue Note kits and I strongly believe you will love it too!:)

Here are sneaks of my Week 42 using just the main Project Life Kit. I’m absolutely loving the palette of this kit, aqua, lavender, yellow, red, they’re all my favorite colors!



And another couple of sneaks using a mix of PL kit, PL add-on (Armstrong), SB add-on 2 (Bennett), Card add-on (Cole) and all the Blue Note printable.



See you soon on reveal day!:)
