First of all, I’d like to take this opportunity to wish all of my Chinese friends “Gong Xi Fa Cai”!
We’ve just celebrated the Lunar New Year last week and had an awesome five days of holiday! We had a wonderful time getting together with our family and friends, eating all our favorite food and taking lots of naps in between meals. Hah! More like I was the one trying to catch up with sleep. It was a bliss!
The Lunar New Year celebration will continue until the 15th day of the Chinese calendar that will end next Thursday 5th March. The more reason for me to catch up with friends, eat and be merry. However, I have to return to work this week and it has been crazy busy catching up with the backlogs from last week’s holiday. But I’m still in a festive mood!
So, I’m kind of way behind sharing my project life here. I’ve completed many weeks and up to date so to speak. Something that I’m still diligently documenting and enjoying.
So, here’s my Week 4.
I’ve used Studio Calico January’s Far Far Away Project Life Kit. Even though I’m no longer on the full time Creative Team but I still do continue to purchase their kit. It’s too good to give it a miss!
This kit was just perfect to kick off my 2015, with lots of my favourite new year elements.
The JAN wood veneer is a killer! Totally love it and I so hope they’ll make more of this in other months.
The kit came with a acetate ‘twenty fifteen’ card in gold. I cut the outline of the words and adhered it directly onto one of my photos.
Those chipboard poetry words are also perfect for adding accents to the photos and journaling cards.
My other favourite embellishment would be the Pink Chipboard Hearts with Gold Flecks by Studio Calico. I basically love everything that comes with this PL kit!
There are lots of mint and pink in this kit, which make it more awesome for me because they’re both my favourite colors.
For the 4×4 pockets, I cut the 4×6 cards from the kit and fit them into some of the pockets. Easy solution to fill up every pocket.
I’v also included prints from the Collect app, in 3×4 size exported out like a polaroid. Love this format that includes short journaling that can be written on the app itself.
Have I mentioned that I love the color palette in this kit? *laugh*
My spread now includes lots of white space and a pop of color. My style has evolved over the years and I’m liking the simplicity of it. The focus is always on the photo and the stories behind them. That’s another goal that I’m working on since last year and I’m going to continue to do so this year. Journaling has never been strength but I’m doing good so far.
How have you been doing on your Project Life? I hope you’ve had a good start and are enjoying every bit of it. 🙂
I’ll be back real soon and will share my completed spreads in the coming days before I start traveling again.
