Today, I decided to scrap small scale. 8x8.
To scrap my stash.
Life is getting busier but that doesn't mean I can't scrap.
For 15 minutes I can make this page by grabbing what in front of me.
One memory has been captured, mission accomplised.

i carry your heart with me...forever

By E. E. Cummings 1894–1962
i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear;and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
                                                      i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)
 I printed the poem into vellum and used gesso as background texture.
 Happy accident on my heart shapes dimensional. Just because the paper is too thick and my punch cant get thru. I just love this photo with different emotion from my girls.

Someone is hiding her journaling for her girls.....

I love all the little elements to complete this page. This is fun way to use my stash.

Project Life 2013 : How to start for beginner....(me)

Happy New Year!
  • Yeah I know I know...it has been a month since new year but only now I have chance to wish you happy new year.
  • Today I want to share how I'm doing my project life.

  1. Photo

I sort my photo weekly, I created special folder for Project Life 2013. Under it,  subfolder for week 1, 2, etc. I just drop the picture that I want to include into PL in respective folder. Even if I'm busy and behind I still can catch up as my photos has been organized by week.

Every weekend I will print the photo and put inside the clear holder sleeve and label with week 1, week 2 ...etc

2.  Page protector/ photo pocket

My preference is BigVariety  Pack 1

3. Kits

Just because I have so much paper, cardstock, stickers and etc. So I opt to create my own kit.
It is just simple as cutting the paper to fit the page protector. I store my kit inside an old diskette holder.

4. Label
I designed simple weekly tab and print it out.    

Now it is time to assemble the pieces..........the fun part (I guess)
Slot in the card into the pocket. (Yes as easy as that)
I love to print my journal together with the photo. (Super easy and save time)
And slot in the photo. Since my photo is too small I will use some paper as background before slot into the page.

I coloured the designed weekly tab and make it as page title.

(Tips: instagram is my absolute secret weapon for project life....we will discuss bout it if you curious to know)
Here is the sample not so perfect but I Love it.......Project Life.
Any comments and inquiry I'm happy to answer.
(sorry for not so perfect photo but this is to give you the idea)
I will update my Project Life once my January is complete.
Thank You! xoxo IdaKarim
