Studio Calico Spencer’s Reveal

Project Life | Week 9 & Week 10

What can I say, I’m amazed again with another month of fabulous kit reveal by Studio Calico! Gotta LOVE the new April Spencer’s kits! It was so difficult to choose my favorite kit/s, I love them ALL!

Well, to justify and control my spending (hah!), I got myself Spencer’s Project Life and Card Kits, Daily Grind, Latte and Today Noted, a PL Stamp add-on which I love it to bits! Studio Calico has brilliantly added new add-ons for Card and Project Life kits from April. I simply love this new offer in their add-on lineup, offering the members and buyers new options of purchasing add-ons to each main kit. The new PL add-on, Latte has been so well received it was a complete sell out for add-on! It offers Project Lifers additional materials on top of the main PL kit to complete a month worth of spreads with more PL cards and embellishments. They’re absolutely gorgeous!:D

So, here are my Week 9 and 10 spreads using Spencer’s Project Life and Card Kits, Daily GrindLatte (PL add-on) and Today Noted (PL stamp add-on).

Week 9

Here are the close up shots for my Week 9 spread.

Supplies List – Spencer’s Project Life Kit, Spencer’s Card Kit, Daily Grind, Latte, Today Noted PL Stamp, Spencer’s Printable Labels, Spencer’s Printable #1 GS, Small White Tags, Snippets Aqua Thickers, Here & There Patchwork Thickers, Sundrifter Wood Veneer Phrases and Shapes, Here & There Wood Veneer Dog.

Week 10

And a few close up shots of my Week 10 spread.

Supplies List: Spencer’s Project Life KitSpencer’s Printable LabelsSpencer’s Printable #1 GS

Like I said earlier, I love every bit of the items that come in all the kits and add-ons. And I believe you do too after seeing the full reveal of all the Spencer’s kits and add-ons. I hope you’ve managed to grab what you’ve wanted and eagerly waiting for them to be delivered to your doorstep soon!:D

Thank you once again for making time to drop by my blog!

Here’s wishing you a great Easter and enjoy your Sunday!

Love looking at your PL in detail. My favourite photo is of Ethan at his desk although I do love the one of you holding the camera. I missed out on Latte but I got the currents stamp, it is awesome.

Take care!

Happy Birthday To Me + Giveaways!

Yeah yeah yeah………….. I’ve just officially turned 40 today!:D

That’s a BIG number but I’m embracing a new chapter and milestone in my life with big open arms! *laugh*

Well, it’s just a numbers you know. I still feel energetic and young as ever and happy like any other day.

I have only a few words to describe these four decades of my life.

Thankful, grateful and absolutely blessed. For my wonderful hubby (who is my #1 best friend), my son, family, best friends, and all the wonderful people I’ve met and fast become friends from near and afar.

Oh, not to forget my dear friends at work, for giving me a new status as “senior citizen” with perks I cannot be more grateful for! *LAUGH* Thanks guys, you are just too sweet to me! ;p

What more can I ask for. I thank the Lord for giving a fulfilling and healthy life, for generously granting me the opportunities to see the world, to mature into a wonderful person and for making me who I am today.

For that I’m so blessed and thankful.

So, for all the blessed things I’ve received all these years, it will give me the greatest pleasure to do giveaways for some lucky people out there!:D

There will be TWO giveaways for two lucky readers, one personally from me and one from Studio Calico, who generously sponsored a Scrapbook kit to celebrate my big day!!

All you need to do is just leave your full name in the comment box in this post. That’s all.:) Make sure you provide your complete name because there may be many Marys, Susans, Lisas and etc.

Leave your comments by March 27th at 6pm Singapore time, GMT +8 (it’s March 25th at 1:00am now as I’m writing this post) and I will randomly draw two names to win these giveaways.

Giveaways are open to EVERYONE!:)

Here are the giveaways from me and Studio Calico!

Giveaway #1

I bought new goodies from Studio Calico shop a few weeks ago just for this giveaway and I hope you like what I picked out. They’re all brand new paid for by me, not goodies given to me by SC ok? *laugh*

Giveaway #2 – Neverland Scrapbook Kit by Studio Calico

That’s not it, Studio Calico is also giving all my readers a 40% off new subscription on scrapbook kit starting with March Neverland Scrapbook kit! How awesome is that!

Just use the promo code 40offNeverland for new scrapbook kit sub. The code is good through March 27th, 12 noon EST

Once again, thank you sooooooo much Studio Calico for your generosity on the awesome Neverland Scrapbook kit!:D

I hope you’re having a great weekend so far. I’ll be taking the day off from work today and pamper myself with good food, shopping and quality time with my family.

Good night and good luck with the giveaways!

This Is Me Sneaks

I’m counting the days before the class officially starts on the April 1st. Only 8 more days to go! Yay! I’m excited and I seriously can’t wait any longer! *laugh* You see, simple things like this get me all excited.

Have you done any prep yet? Photos printed? Materials set aside?

I know some of you who have registered are a little lost, totally unsure what to do for now. I can understand that. You can choose to wait and do nothing until the class starts to get inspiration from Lexi Bridges and the rest of the contributors (I’m one of them;)) or you can set aside the bonus kit that you would have received by now and your own materials that you would love to use on your handbook or mini book.

Just to share what I set aside and used while prepping for my handbook.

Aside from the bonus kit that comes along with the registration of the class & class printables, I decided to use Here & There Woodgrain Chipboard Handbook and Snippets Album Inserts for the base of my pages mixed with the handbook protectors.

As for the rest of the materials, I mixed some items from Snippets, Here and There and Sundrifter collection from Studio Calico.

And I cut out a whole lot of printables from the class! You will be able to download them when the class starts.

And something I can’t live without, alpha stickers! Lots of them!:)

Frankly speaking, I’m just so glad to have taken up this class as a contributor. In all the years I have been scrapping, I spent most of my time documenting about people around me, not too much of myself. I rarely had my pictures taken because I’m always behind the camera. So, this class is one way for me to talk everything and anything that is related to ME!

I’ve included a glimpse of my childhood, what I do for a living before, the people I love and cherish, my passion etc. Nothing too quirky. I just like to have pages that reflect who I really am in the simplest way.

So, here are some sneaks of my handbook and I hope it will give you an idea about me.:)

If you still have not registered for the class, do seriously consider it. It’ll be fun, believe me.

You have until March 31st to register for this class here and it will start on April 1st. You will also receive a bonus class kit containing journaling cards, wood veneer word accents, a stamp set, two triangle shaped clips, a badge and washi tape. This kit will ship worldwide for no additional fee. Studio Calico will update this page when the kit is no longer available.

I’ll see you in class soon! Happy weekend!

ShayMarch 24, 2013 - 1:20 pm

YOU are adorbs, and I love seeing all of your work over at SC. Cannot wait to see the class, mainly because of your sneaks– that map knocked it out of the park, LOVE it! xoxo

ShawnMarch 24, 2013 - 2:51 pm

Your sneaks are fantastic. Your pages are eye candy! Counting down the days!

Jenny AMarch 25, 2013 - 2:18 am

Love your sneaks! I can’t wait for this class to start! LOVE what you did with the map and all the places you’ve traveled too. So impressive!

michelleMarch 25, 2013 - 11:13 pm

I love this so much. The map is amazing.

MirandaMarch 26, 2013 - 10:16 am

I signed up for this one and I have NOTHING prepared yet other than the super cute kit from SC. But oh my word I love your little sneaks!!! Can’t wait!!

KhloeMarch 26, 2013 - 5:01 pm

Love that layout with the map that illustrates where had you been, the little dots are too cute :) Beautiful page! And the little girl pix of you at the right (besides the “STORY”) is a pretty girl too :) Wonderful way to scrap about ownself ^.^

Linda in AusMarch 27, 2013 - 12:11 pm

I am still waiting for my kit to arrive, it takes ages to get here and I signed up the day I knew you were a contributor, I am still waiting for that awesome album to come back in stock. So NO I am not prepared at all but looking forward to class.
Love what you have done so far.

PetriceApril 2, 2013 - 1:02 pm

Love your pages!!! What is the name of the thickers for ‘places’ in the last photo? I love them!
