project life


Happy New Year! We spent the last day of 2013 with a bad case of food poisoning (wait, is there ever a good case of that?!). We think it was from some salmon we had the night before. Luckily, Jack was not affected and we’re feeling more normal today. This year I plan on documenting using Project Life once again. This time, like the past […]

Project Life CT 2013

Amy Tan Project Life

It was an honor to be on the 2013 Project Life Creative Team. This year seemed to fly right on by. Though I skipped more than 10 weeks randomly throughout this year – my Australia & New Zealand trip is completely missing – I am grateful for this way of documenting. Kari posted this last batch of projects on Becky’s blog. Here’s one of my […]

from greeting card to PL card

3x4 Punch | Little Mr. Right

My cousins gave me this adorable Hallmark card for the baby shower and I found the perfect way to save it for Project Life.I simply used the 3×4 We R Memory Keepers punch (which was available at Studio Calico and Two Peas in a Bucket) – just click Notify Me to be alerted when back in stock. The punch is easy to use, but I […]

Project Life on Two Peas

There are so many new products that are now available at Two Peas in A Bucket. I chose to showcase 3 new collections for this week’s Project Life video. Since I have found a nice rhythm and routine for what works to getting the spreads done, there aren’t really too many mind-blowing techniques shown. New products and a couple tricks here and there to make […]

Week in the Life + a giveaway


Decided to participate in Ali Edwards’ Week in the Life once again. I did it in 2010 for the first time and then again in 2011 – there are 2 posts from that year that inspired me to do this again as so much has changed in 2 years. Here’s the Sunday + Monday one and Tuesday’s from 2011. Last year I didn’t do a […]

Project Life on Two Peas

Ironic that my last video featured a trip abroad, while this week I was challenged with being in a new house with limited supplies. My studio won’t be set up for another couple weeks (right around the same time the baby is due), so I had to work on the coffee table. And I had my friend Kara in town to help out. The week […]

Project Life update


Sharing another spread today. This was done after a fun chat with Elise Blaha and Becky Higgins on the Paperclipping Roundtable. I really wanted to keep it simple after the discussion. I had my photos printed with my Canon SELPHY CP900 Wireless Photo Printer. I find that wirelessly beaming photos to the printer via the Canon IEPP app has helped a huge amount. I then […]

Guest Post | Project Life with Kinsey


I met Amy a few weeks ago for the very first time at Camp Calico and having followed her work and her blog for years, I was pretty stoked. I brought my PL stuff and some other work stuff with me to Camp Calico just in case we had a little free time here and there to kill, which we did so I grabbed my […]

Incorporating memorabilia into Project Life


I have a confession. For some reason I feel the need to collect business cards from most of the places I visit. They usually get thrown into a pocket of my purse, and then get piled up onto my desk when I clean that purse out. I also love ripping things out of magazines and saving them for a future project. The only problem with […]
