PROJECT LIFE WEEK 4

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.

  6. Your PL pages look great! I love the stitching (should really try that). Totally agree about the MS labels. I'm even tempted to use a freight forwarder. Did you order the SC PL stamps? I think I'm ordering those when it comes back in stock ($17.50 shipping though eek!).
