Sometimes, I feel as though things are moving at fast forward speed as it's already March; I'm pretty sure that the next time I look up again it might even be December. It's a challenge to keep pace with the passing months. It's just one reason I enjoy Project Life so much; it allows you to record memories in an easy, simple format without losing track of time. Given everything that's been happening lately, I'm thankful for this vital Project Life benefit.
Today, I bring you week seven. It entails a trip to Bangkok, amongst a few other details. To put it all together, I used the bright and lively Maggie Holmes collection.
The first thing I grabbed from the collection is the double-sided journaling cards. They're conveniently printed on a standard 12" x 12" sheet of patterned paper. They're affordable at under a "buck" and quick to cut-out! They're also perfect as Project Life inserts! You have the option to choose from multiple designs depending on your needs. I usually use them as the base for my 3" x 4" cards.
Another thing I love about the collection is the combination of colors - pinks, blues, turquoises and yellows. They're especially gorgeous when backed with dark woodgrain patterned paper. Just look at this card and how the colors "pop"!
A third fave from the collection are the light-hearted, sweet designs. The Ephemera Cardstock Die-Cut Pack includes a large selection of shabby chic images. The pink butterfly and blue tag, above, are just a snippet of what's inside! I highly recommend this collection's Ephemera options!
At the heart of this week's Project Life spread is a series of trips and a brand-new learned hobby. It was sad to leave Bangkok as it'd been a while since my last visit there. The food is fabulous and I miss it dearly! In Singapore, I had a chance to attend a stamp carving workshop/class. I have to admit, this might be a new hobby addiction for me. The stamps are a lot of fun to make, and the image possibilities are endless!
Last, but not least, I managed to squeeze in a stroll down the quieter streets in Chinatown where you can still find old shop houses/town houses in Singapore. I have to admit, one of the things that I really appreciate about Singapore is that they invest in preserving the past. Visitors are able to get a glimpse of how things use to be before the arrival of newer, fancier buildings.
Thank-you for stopping by today - have a great weekend everyone!
