Hi everyone, it's nearing the end of the 15 days of the Lunar New Year and during this time there has been loads of feasting and visiting of relatives.
Well Week 4 was the start of it, so much of it was included in the album, as was more food pictures as I caught up with old acquaintances. Here it is:
I continued in my experimentation of different page protectors, with Design F being the new "victim". Design F is good for lots of photos which was perfect for this week, where I had the most number of photos yet. For now I still prefer the Design A protectors, though I do like how the Design F ones challenged me creatively.
As there were many photos this week, I chose to use labels to do the journaling on the photos. After this, I have a huge huge huge obsession with labels, with my current favourites being October Afternoon and Jenni Bowlin at the moment. I have yet to find more, though the new Martha Stewart ones for Staples are too die for. But until a kind soul decides to send me some, I'll have to drool over the internet.
I pulled out my old Studio Calico Wooden Veneer butterflies that I have been hoarding but relax for now as they have been re released with the CHA Winter 2012, though a little different in shape. I used my Tim Holtz tiny attacher and fixed in to my page.
My typewriter also made an appearance as I ran some labels through it. Love the look.
On the top left, you see something we term as "steamboat" where food of all varieties is thrown into a boiling pot of chicken stock and cooked, before everyone hauls them out to eat. As I had a blank space this week, I took a quote, re typed it up and printed it out. (idea from elise blaha).
For those who are wondering the journaling card above is a free printable that I have in my shop for free download. Do check the other Project Life related goodies that I have there too.
I used the same butterfly, but used my sewing machine to stitch through the wooden veneer. Love how that looks.
With another blank slot, I created my own embellished grid card, using much from the Girl's Paperie line, with the indication of a month stitched on. The 'celebrate' embellishment seemed appropriate as it is a festive season.
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. For those who live in Asia, you can get your PL supplies from Scraplicious. Follow my PL journey here.
