Planner 2015

Skipping this year's tradition of gulping down 18 Starbucks drinks to get a planner!  My jeans won't have any more space for Christmas calories if I start gulping down frappuccinos.
My alternative was to get a Moleskin planner,  but hey  the cheapskate in me,just bought a notebook from National Bookstore.  I added washi tape,  and did some stamping.
I was just so lucky to purchase a date stamp when I did.
I was also able to purchase a notebook cover from H&M  with a beautiful texture.  Very happy with next year's planner.

You don't have to purchase a fancy planner.  Just make your own!

Taipei Travel Album

Last year was a year of upheaval in my life.  We didn't travel at all,  so I didn't have anything to scrapbook.  Well this year, the opposite is true.    I  have so many pictures and didn't have time to put them in lay outs.  A quick fix is making mini albums.
  I started out with using an echo park getaway travel papers, and some chip board  used a zutter bind it all and I'm good to go!

I also mixed in some white water colour paper and some black card stock to make the album more fun!

Beside our hotel was a veritable treasure trove of a store!  I was able to purchase scrapbook stickers of Taiwan,  washi tape and anything I can beautify my album with.  

I am so in love with uniball signo white pens.  The pen pops up in black paper, so I can journal to my heart's content.

  I have also made a mini album for Bali,  and I have yet to work on my Dubai one.  And so now,  if I want to revisit where we went,  I get a mini album complete with maps of where we went,  what souvenirs we bought  and where we had fun!
