PROJECT LIFE WEEK 12

Am caught up now going strong with Week 12, and yes, Week 9 will be out on this blog soon. *keep on reading downwards as I have something exciting going on there*

This week was a very colourful week as my photos were really colourful too, being in the city of Bangkok for most of the week, so I went a little colourful with my paper selection and I really like this week. In addition,I have an insert (something that I truly thought that I might never need), due to the number of photos that I took that I really want to document.

Here is the left side with the insert. I did photographed it this way as I thought it would be easier to read and see.


All sorts of fun stuff that I used here, including some of the products in my etsy store and my "hot-at-the-moment" doily punch. Funny how we take many many many more photos when we are overseas. But I think along the process I've learnt to cut down on the multiple photos that I take as I have no patience to look through all of them.


The American Craft thickers are finicky and so I sticked them down and ran the sewing machine through them for good measure, of course I like that look too. For some variety, I used yellow thread for the first time over the BKK words. Am still madly in love with the polka dot vellum and just want to continue to find new ways to use it.

And on to the right side,

Used a bunch of my favourite things, including the Dear Lizzy Camera stamp, Stepping Stone Alpha, Vintage Doily martha steward punch, Papertrey Ink Doily, my own printable journaling cards, manila shipping tag and labels, any many labels.

Spot the instgram stamp mark there. Yes I tried my own hand at designing my own after seeing Kelly Purkey show hers off. So this is my own interpretation for an instagram stamp. Given how much we use instagram in this day and age, I forsee myself using it more and not just on my Project Life pages.

I have some favourite pockets that I really liked from this week and want to just share some of them and some of the things that I did with them.
I am totally on board the chevron craze as you can tell and a doily one too (: And I loved using one of the camera flair button that I designed that can be found here, as a part of a set of six.
And the photo is a common sight that is seen in Bangkok all the time.

Added a bit of personalisation with a stamp on the top border of the 3x4 card, as well as punch outs from the Vintage Doily punches. The patterned papers came with the label printed on it, perfect for little bits of journaling.

More use of the yellow thread, love the effect even though I'm lazy to change out the thread from time to time.

Wanted to save this napkin that I bought at Chatuchak because of the pretty patterns on it. In order not to "damage" the napkin I put the descriptive label on the plastic pocket.

Used my Polaroid journaling cards, found here, in this pocket. Like how it gives a pop of colour to the pocket (:

Here's how the pages look in my album now.


Now for another little announcement, as I alluded to in my previous post(s) and as some of you have guessed, I plan on making some stamps in gorgeous red rubber with wooden handles, mainly for my own use but I'll be offering them in my store. They won't look like the ones I pictured previously but would look like this instead:


And to celebrate their entering the store, I will be offering them at a special pre-order price, until Good Friday on 6 April (Friday). Shipping is US$4 internationally for the first stamp (unless you stay in Singapore) and US$1 for each subsequent stamp. (Note that if you order than more than one stamp, I will refund the balance extra shipping that is charged.)

Here are what the designs will look like with the dimensions that they will be printed in. (ignore the watermark ''piecedpapers', the final designs will not have them).
