project life // week 28

2014 week 28_01

“pix or it didn’t happen,” as my friend ktong1 said.  not to worry; I usually have photos!  I used mostly project life kit supplies from studio calico, combined with some other embellishments.  the bottom left card was nabbed from kate spade, the puffy heart stickers are from michael’s, and the gold enamel dots are from studio calico.  I didn’t think I’d have any use for the vellum pockets, but they are so useful to collect little bits that I wanted to include, but didn’t have space for on the page!  I filled this one with business cards I picked up at picnic at the presidio.

I seriously heart the chipboard shapes from the penny arcade kit.  I’m actually still hoarding a few from the sugar rush kit too.  the gold sequin stars are from joann’s – so glad I stopped debating and staring and debating and just lined up to pay for them because they’ve been super useful so far!

 

What is Project Life?  Project Life is a product, system, and lifestyle created by Becky Higgins.  It is a simplified way to approach scrapbooking – “pocket-page” scrapbooking rather than “traditional” scrapbooking.  I aim for chronological, weekly spreads to document my everyday, but you can use Project Life however you want.  All of my 2014 Project Life spreads are available here.

hello succulents // update one

about three months ago, I shared our new mini garden for our tiny apartment!  I don’t have the best track record with plants, but I thought I’d track their progress here.

I accidentally killed off Boy Wonder’s succulent pick (oops) – overwatering, I think.  :|  so over the weekend, we picked up our new replacement!  we’re really digging the purple leaves.

replanted and hanging out with its new neighbors.

read up on succulent cutting & propagating, and attempted to salvage Boy Wonder’s favorite succulent.  crossing our fingers that it’ll work out!

the lineup!  the tall fern-like one in the bottom corner is THRIVING (*knockonwood*), and I’m liking our new air plant (in the middle) that we picked up at renegade.  the hand-painted planters from thrifted and made are so cute, and I’m planning on ordering some more as gifts!
