In order to be better organised for Project Life 2012, I have set up my "station" of PL goodies that I will head towards when filling in my pages. And of course whatever is on my desk is fair game to going into my 2012 album. The container is from IKEA for just $2, with it's original intent to be a drawer organiser.

Let me take you through my bits and how I have arranged all my things.

First up, washi/paper tape. A mixture of American Crafts, MT Tape and 7 Gypsies accquired over the years. I have a bigger stash then this but these are the colours that I think will work well with my "in my head" project life colour scheme.


Tags, PL cards and various miscellany that will fit into the 3x4 pockets. This is where having a stash "helped". The Jenni bowlin memo pads are from pretty long ago and the October Afternoon cards are from quite a while back and the snapshots with a camera card has my heart fully.

As I have been destashing, I also found papers that I knew I wouldn't use on a layout, because it was too busy, but would fit PL. So those have been cut down to size and prepared to be used. I also found Melissa Frances journaling tags which would work perfect. In front is the Smash datestamp as well as a normal office date stamp. All 4x6 cards and scraps will go here.

Some of the stamps that I assembled for PL as well as other bits. The stamps at the far back are Autumn Leaves, designed by Jenni Bowlin, with he said, she said on it, perfect for PL. Also the Tim Holtz Adage tickets will add perfect little touches.

Project Life is a line of products by Becky Higgins, and can be used for documentation of daily life or anything else you may want. I am using it to remember the year and take more photos of  my everyday. Follow my PL journey hereFor those who live in Asia, you can get your PL supplies from Scraplicious.

If you have made it this far, you are in for a treat and this is why. I received a badge making machine during christmas, along with supplies to make 25mm size badges (yes we use the metric scale here in SG)  This is after someone saw my "obsession" with October Afternoon Tin Pins.  So I tried my hand at making some designs, things that would go with PL and scrapbooking.

Here's an upclose look : sayings and cameras (do excuse this slightly poor photography due to no light here at home, I was excited to share)

What do you think?

*****please note that giveaway is now closed*****
Well for a start to thank my blog followers, those who have been following my blog, drop me an email at and I will send you a couple. If there is any colour you would like in particular, let me know.

For everyone else, if you would like to get a set of these badges I have created (all the sayings and choice of two cameras), leave a comment below and suggest some phrases/icons which you think would be good, especially to document life. I'll draw a winner by 13 January.

If you would let me know if you think that there would be a commercial demand for this, let me know too, as support will be appreciated. I haven't decided what to do yet, but so far I'm just enjoying making them. Oh and you never know when I might do a giveaway to my followers as and when I get mojo to make a bunch.


  1. I love your badges and I definitely think you should sell these on Etsy! I really like tha camera ones ( I really like ALL of them!). Maybe you could do some with numbers or days of the week? Btw...great organization with your PL items!

  2. So lovely! You inspire me with how you are organizing all PL 2012 materials. I just ordered my CORE kit today. Yay!
    I like all of the badges you created. I'll PM you maybe you can throw some in the mail for me. :-)

  3. Wow! I am in love your flair, especially the camera ones! What type of machine is it that makes them?

    I really like seeing how your organized your project life station. It is inspiring to me to do that as a blog post. Thanks for sharing!

  4. These are great! What about 'favourite' or 'best' or something like that? 'my favourite' maybe.

  5. Hello! I do hope you have plans to sell these! I love them! Especially the greys and oranges! I like arrows as well so perhaps you can try those too if you're so inclined. If you're interested in selling a bunch please email me! I'm based in Singapore too and these will be perfect for my PL project!

    The camera is so cute!

  7. Adorable Badges! I am obsessed with these as well and I wish I could figure out how to make them. I love the color combo you used for these !

  8. I think it is a great idea to have precut papers with pattern paper sheets. I think I may have to go through my stash and do that.

  9. Your stash of goodies look amazing together! Makes me wanna go all out for PL even though I've decided against it. and your badges look amazing. I have one of those machines heading my way too. Can't wait!

  10. There is definitely a demand! I just love these, all of them.

  11. I love that tray...for $2! wish we had an Ikea. Love your stash of goodies too for PL. And how awesome you got a badge maker...I'd love to get one of those, but too many other toys.

    I love what you did. here's some ideas just off the top of my head: days of the week, photo aperture (like F2.8, F5.0), for real...Okay, that's all I have for now. Great job!

  14. I love how you organized everything. I have a similar but smaller set up. I have all my PL cards in one wooden box that DH made me, and then an iris container with my scraps, journaling cards, stamps etc. Great job! I love the badges! How fun!

  15. Love these!! :) How about: now, said, lol, jus sayin, fav ?
