TGIF! This time I’m on time with posting my PL spreads! I love using the Midnight Core Kit from Becky Higgins as my card base and I subscribe to the monthly Project Life kits from Studio Calico. Love the embellishments and unique cards from Studio Calico!
Here is my left side of the PL spread. I love using alpha wood veneers for titles and captions! I also love using the Kelly Purkey alphabet stickers.
I am in love with the Sugar Rush PL kit! I love those chipboard and banner die cuts!
I love having lots of white for my spread and then pops of colours here and there.
Here is the right side of the spread.
Here, I took off the sleeve of my DavidsTea cup and made it into a simple 3×4 card. The alphabet stickers are just the perfect colour!
And lastly, my absolute favourite card I did for this week! I used the wood veneers for some simple categories and summarized my week with the pie chart card.
Thank you for stopping by and come back next week for my Week 10!

Hello everyone! I’m back with Runway Inspired for a gorgeous dress. I would totally wear this gown if I could fit into it ;_;
The design in the middle made me think of a complicated and beautiful damask, so I went online and looked for a damask that I could cut out and put it in the middle of the card. I adhered the cut outs with some foam tape for dimension and stamped a very simple sentiment from Jane’s Doodles’ Roses.

Hello everyone! I’ve got some Paper Smooches projects to share and I don’t know where to begin!
I’ll start off with my blog hop card. I did some hand stitching to attach the stars to the card. I love this adorable star and I wanted to have gold stars shooting out from him.
Next up, Spiffy Scooter dies! I made a very different “him & her” card that would be perfect for a scooter-loving couple. I stamped the scooters on some watercolour paper and painted it loosely. I heat embossed the “&” from We Connect and “congrats” from the new stamp set Bold Buzzwords in white to finish the card off.
This one is my 2nd favourite from this release. I made a set of 2 cards and envelopes. The envelopes were created with the new deco bag die. I made 2 very simple cards using the same design with We Totally Click and My Guy.
Here are the full card fronts with matching envelopes.
And of course, I saved my favourite for last. A cute little wedding congrats card using My Guy and Smoocheroos. I coloured the balloons in colours that would match my enamel dots and then tied some sewing threads to the balloons and car. Some glossy accents on the car’s head/rear lights to finish the card off.

Good morning! It’s hard to believe that we are third month into 2014 (and I’m all caught up with Project Life!) I am using the Midnight Core Kit from Becky Higgins and I subscribe to the monthly Project Life kits from Studio Calico.
Love these fancy wood veneers!
I don’t have a Tim Holtz attacher so I used a Muji stapler with green staples to attach the clear overlay.
Sometimes I would take the 3×4 cards, cut off the sides and attach it to a white 4×6 base card.
This was the first thing that came to my mind when I saw these Bow Cabochons! Hello Kitty ribbons!
Love the banner die cuts and the Kelly Purkey alphabets!
Thanks for stopping by!

I used the new stars dies and a cute star from a new stamp set that compliments the stars dies. I blended some Delicata gold ink (my favorite!) onto some cardstock and die cut lot of small stars, then stitched them around the middle star.
Look at this adorable star with a smiley face! I finished the card off with a sentiment from My Guy.

TGIF! I’m back with my Project Life spreads for Week 7. My weeks go from Sundays to Saturdays and I am using the Midnight Core Kit from Becky Higgins.
Taheerah, while I’d love to do a video documenting my process, it’s slightly impossible because of the way I work on my PL. I print my photos at home and work on it every day rather than at the end of the week. Hopefully I can get something set up and record all the time that I put into my PL and combine it into one video
Here is the left side of the spread. I use Cole’s ABCs as the base for my alphabets.
I am addicted to these alphabet wood veneers from Studio Calico – so much that I bought 3 packs and looking into getting more!
I love these stamps from Studio Calico that I picked up at the end of last year.
My right side of the PL spread. Using my stash of washi tape and embellishments and learning not to hoard!
I really love this 3×4 card from the Midnight Core kit. I used a white gel pen for my journaling.
I used the star clip from the Copper Mountain PL kit and enamel dots from my stash to decorate the card.
Happy Friday and thanks for reading!
