project life // week 29

happy tuesday!  hope you all (in the US) had a good labor day weekend :)

2014 week 29_01

week 29 happiness!  for this week’s spread, I used mostly elements from the penny arcade kit (minus a couple project life cards that I had been hoarding!)

the vellum pockets turned out to be way more useful than I originally thought!  I kept things simple and just stamped “you are here” to add extra embellishment and to incorporate more stamping into my spread.

I added some pink deco dots from camelot to the cloud’s already-pink cheeks to accent their cuteness.  as for the photo of Boy Wonder’s new hair accessory, I added star embellishments (vellum, wood veneer, sequin, and stamps) to repeat the “frozen” theme (heh).

 

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.

coffee house friday // 05

no #coffeehousefriday tour would be complete without my default coffee shop – philz.  back when I was studying, I’d go to the other philz location in palo alto, mostly because they had more indoor seating for my winter study sessions.  but with the great summer weather, I thought I’d hangout at the original palo alto location!

so… during my studying days, I tried all the dark, medium, and light roasts.  every single one.  heh.  what can I say, it was great for those cold winter days.  but when it started to warm up, iced coffee is my go-to, and I <3 philz’s ecstatic iced coffee, sweet & creamy!

look all the creamy goodness, aka one of the reasons why this is my default.
