Being overseas really truly threw me off balance at least where Project Life was concerned. And even as I'm working on getting back on schedule, I'm going overseas again soon... However even with the little that I have done so far for Project Life, I really enjoy looking back on it and seeing the weeks that have passed.

Just realised that I have not done my February Project Life review, but given my schedule this month, it looks like it is possible that I would do both February and March together.

So I have not yet completed Week 9 but decided to jump ahead to Week 10 as the memories are fresher in my mind. And of course being overseas, I took more pictures than usual. But I will get back to Week 9.

One dilemma I faced was that I was doing a mini album for my Hong Kong trip too, so having to balanced out photos between the two seemed to be a need within my mind. In the end though I decided that it was no point stressing over and instead to just do what seemed natural and the best idea to me.

So here is my Week 10, though a bit simpler than other weeks, has lots of memories.

Pardon the slightly blurred photo, will retake it when I can

I love that dear lizzy mason jar stamp (available at Scraplicious) and adore that it fits nicely into the size 2 shipping tags. I forsee lots of uses for this particular stamp. Also my papertry ink doily dies came in too, and I have started on a rampage of sorts to cut and use them.

As always labels are my most favourite thing to use on Project Life especially when I want big photos and a bit of journaling to remember them.

I have also been using my punches more. Pictured on the right in kraft is a tag that I created with the EK success Real Estate Sign punch and cutting off a third of the punched out image. Will definitely revisit doing this again.

Think that it was quite noteworthy that the this is the first time that I have received a fortune cookie. This is as fortune cookies, though found in Chinese restaurants, are really very much a Western invention. So though commonplace in the West for Chinese restaurants to have and serve after a meal it is a rarity of gigantic proportions in Asia. However at the China Club in Hong Kong, I guessed it was served as majority of its clientle are expats/caucasians. I think I was at the only Asian table in the resturant. That said it was great fun to play with it, though mine was "practical advice" rather than some prediction on the future.

Again you can see the real estate punch being used on my layouts (:

I am working on my Hong Kong album, which I think will be a work in progress for a while so stay tuned.

For those who are interested, I have restocked my etsy shop, so do pop by if you are interested in purchasing any items. I'm also working on some new items to be launched so I am hoping to get them out of the oven. Be sure to follow me on twitter to get the latest updates on that.

And once again Stephanie Howell is hosting a giveaway of some of my favourite printable journaling cards.

Head there for a chance to win one of three sets that she is giving away.

Other than that, that's all for now. Have a great day everyone!


  1. Those journaling cards are precious! Good idea to record those freshest memories right away...because they can get stale fast!

  2. Once again I love your work. How have you decided how to split your PL photos from those to make a mini book from. I have the same issue. We just spent 12 days in Japan and while I know I will do a mini on Disneyland for my daughter I would like to complete another of our other activities. I would love to hear more about your process.

  3. Really fun! Love the real estate sign punch!

  4. Love your use of the doilies and I just love your journal cards!

  5. Another amazing week! I used some of my custom badges from you on my Project 10 LOOOOVEEE them. I see another order coming really soon!

  6. Fun pages and pictures! I love traveling and what a great way to document travels by using PL..I think that concept is so universal in the ways people can use it in many different ways. I love that real estate punch!!

  7. So cute! Love all the Dear Lizzy in there.

  8. Just lovely!!!

  9. You have a lot going on. But your PL looks amazing. Love that punch and great idea to use the mason jar stamp on the tag...beautiful!
