Hey there!

I’ve got a couple of sneaks to share with you from the Day By Day class for 2014. If you’re on the fence to join this class, you should jump right in now! There will be tons of videos, tutorials, ideas, tips and inspiration from the contributors of this class throughout the whole month of January, so be rest assured you’ll get a good start to your 2014 Project Life.

For newbies, this will definitely help you a whole lot to start your Project Life, it’ll give you a good grip of what’s all Project Life is about. The support doesn’t end there – the team will be on the class message boards all year long to share journaling and photo prompts, sketches, and the encouragement you need to keep you going.

Only 3 more days to go before the enrollment closed. Registration is officially closed.

So, here are some sneaks of my title page, which will be shared along with the rest of the other contributors in the class.




See you in class soon!:)

    Hi Sharon,
    When I posted this post, it was on 30th Dec, Singapore time but 29th in the US. So, the 3 days are from 29th-31st Dec US time. Now it’s already past New Year so the registration is closed. I’m sorry to hear that you can’t make it on time. :(

Project Life | Week 45 & Week 48

I don’t even know where to begin in expressing how mind-blowing this January kit is! The reveal in the CT gallery basically sums it all. The amount of amazingness these girls churned out, it’s pure awesomeness! Don’t you agree?:)

The Copper Mountain kits really kicked start 2014 really well. It had been so fun putting together my Project Life spreads together with those gorgeous cards and embellishments from Project Life Kit, and the two PL add-ons, Union Meadows and Storm King. Did you get what you wanted? I hope you managed to grab them. You’ll love everything that comes in these kits.:)

Here are my spreads using the main PL kit and PL ad-ons and I hope you like what you see.

Week 45



Supply list – Copper Mountain Project Life KitHello Cuts by Hello ForeverJournaling Card Cuts by In A Creative Bubble, Printable Label, Printable by Hello Forever and Happy Moments Printable by In A Creative Bubble.


Whenever I start working on my spread, I always work on my title card first. It gives me a warm up and the rest of the cards will be a breeze.

I adhered the wood veneer alphas with  Martha Stewart Glue Pen. Love it so much I used them all over my spread! *laugh*


The puffy stickers have become one of my favorite embellishments in recent months. It’s been added to my must-have list of embellishments and I hope to see more of them in the coming kits.:)

Week 48



Supply list – Copper Mountain Project Life KitUnion Meadows and Storm KingHello Cuts by Hello ForeverJournaling Card Cuts by In A Creative BubblePrintable LabelPrintable by Hello ForeverHappy Moments Printable by In A Creative Bubble and Enchanted Forest (stamp set by Evalicious).


In every kit that I received the past year, I always have leftover of PL cards. One of the ways that I will use them is to cut them up as a mat to my pictures and layer it with labels and embellishments.


That’ll be all for now.

I’m currently 5 weeks behind including week 52 and I’ve just completed one week spread today. We’re only three days away before New Year, so I’m trying my best to wrap up 2013 as soon as I can. How are you doing so far with your Project Life? If you’re current that’s awesome for you but if you’re not, it’s ok. There’s no hard and fast rules that you have to get your spread done before the year ends. Sometimes our life gets busy and we have to prioritize the more important stuff. Just hang in there and you’ll get there eventually.

I’ve come up with a list of posts that I’d like to share when I embark on my 2014 Project Life, this will also include my reflection of 2013. So keep a lookout for these posts as they will address some of the questions you’ve been asking me on my Project Life. They will be spread out in a few weeks.

Have a great weekend!

    Awesome Leena, I stayed up till 1am and managed to get both of the PL add ons , will have to try and keep the excitement of it all as it will take ages to get here. I am still waiting on Blue Note to arrive.

  • DebraDecember 29, 2013 - 12:25 am

    I absolutely adore your pages! ❤️❤️❤️

  • GiuseppinaDecember 29, 2013 - 3:15 am

    Love your pages! Can’t wait to see your new posts with your project life tips :)

  • pamelaDecember 31, 2013 - 12:45 pm

    I’m completely in love with your pages! You’ve definitely sold me on the PL kits from SC and I’m waiting for their next promo to start a sub!

I’ve spent a good Saturday last weekend getting two weeks worth of my Project Life spreads done and I’m really happy how they turned out. Two weeks down and I’m still about 4 weeks behind but I’ll soon catch up, hopefully over this holiday.

The Studio Calico January Copper Mountain Project Life Kit and add-ons are so amazingly easy to work with! I noticed that there are more embellishments this time round on the PL main kit and I’m so happy to have more bellis to play with.

I’ll let my sneaks speak for themselves and I believe you will LOVE the PL kit and add-ons as much as I do!! Get ready to burn a big hole in your pocket! It’s definitely worth every cent!  :D


Look at those wood veneer alphas! They are brilliant, aren’t they?;)As they’re tiny and skinny, I used Martha Stewart Glue Pen to adhere them onto my photos or cards. Use a tweezer to put them together, it’s a lot easier than picking up each letter with your fingers.


Oh, the die cuts are equally amazing too! I used the Hello Cuts by Hello Forever and Journaling Card Cuts by In A Creative Bubble. They’ll be available in Studio Calico digital shop soon.

And here are the other sneaks using a mix of the main PL kit and the two PL add-ons, Union Meadows and Storm King. Studio Calico has brought in an additional add-on to their PL range and both are filled with lots of gorgeous cards and embellishments!


The days of the week die cut PL card is from Journaling Card Cuts by In A Creative Bubble. I adhered it on top of a woodgrain paper from the Copper Mountain 4×6 Paper Pad, which is also a new product for January.


I hope you like what you see so far. We’re only 4 days and 14 hours to go before the reveal. Subscribers reveal will be on 27th at noon EST / 11am CST and for the rest of the public, it will go live at midnight EST / 11pm CST. Make sure you get ready to shop for your favorite kits and add-ons!  :D

And if you’d like to be a new subscriber, the promo deal is still on until 26th December. Read the details on my post here.

Happy Holidays to you and have a wonderful Christmas!  :)
