I've gotten a few questions on how to stay informed of when I update my shoppe, so I've linked up my instagram, twitter, and facebook accounts on the sidebar, all of which I plan to use regularly. I just opened the facebook page for my blog on Sunday, so I'm still working on figuring out how to use it. But I'd love it if you 'liked' my page :)
Anyway, moving on. Project Life! I took a break from working on Project Life a couple of months ago but I'm determined to get back on track despite being behind. I still love this project because I find it so rewarding to have my everyday life documented. If you're new to my blog, I blogged about my modified version of Project Life ages ago, and I have an update to share today!
I spent a good chunk of this past weekend finishing up June, and here it is. I used my leftovers from Studio Calico's July kit and add-ons (Elmwood Park), a couple of my new journaling cards, Kelly Purkey stamps, lots of washi tape, and bits and pieces from my stash.
Starting off with my monthly divider, as always.
I spent the entire month of June in Asia, so I thought this quote was appropriate. Lots of layering with bits and pieces of my regular scrapbooking supplies mixed with my Korean and Japanese stationary :)
Random no.2 journaling cards in action and the appearance of one of my favorite KP stamps.
I had the challenge of figuring out how I would summarize my short trip to Tokyo. I'm planning to make a mini-book of my trip, so I knew that I didn't need to go into a lot of detail about it here in my Project Life. I decided to dedicate the entire left side of the page protectors to Tokyo, and I chose to highlight the places we visited in the city with one photo from each place.
I made good use of KP's geotag stamp and geotag digital brush (a freebie!) to label my Tokyo photos.
This screenprinted card from Tina's store (Life.Love.Paper) was perfect because I felt like I was in washi tape heaven while shopping in Tokyo ;) Tina has a cool fall edition of the card here.
My second trip to Japan, a 9 day trip spent travelling around northern Kyushu, was even more of a challenge to document. Yes, two trips to Japan in a month :) I'm going to make a mini book about this trip as well, but we did so many things and visited so many places that it took me a while to figure out how I would summarize it here.
In the end, I decided to use one photo from each city we visited + the KP geotag freebie + a list of the places we visited in each city right on each photo. Phew.
July next! How is your Project Life coming along? Are you behind and catching up like me, or are you up to date?
