I've got another Project Life spread to share with you and this time we're going way back to May (which feels so far away now that July is underway!) For this week I used some bits + pieces from Ali... Continue reading

Unfortunately I didn't snap very many photos in Manila - so sad! I posted some on Instagram but I definitely regret not taking more.

Admittedly while in Saigon the majority of our daytime was spent inside cafes working. We took breaks for bites to eat and frequently stopped for a massage (god bless SE Asia and their incredible $10 hour long massages) first thing... Continue reading

Hi there, Camila! The link is below but to have access to it you need to have purchased the Story Kit so that might be why you're not able to find it. Hope that helps!

Ahhh I mixed up those links, so sorry! It's fixed now and goes to the Marc Jacob's backpack at Nordstrom now:

I fixed the link to the Herschel - thanks! I had also ordered that one from Amazon bc I love the look, but it was just slightly too long (or I'm just too short ;))

It's funny to see what retro things become trendy again and backpacks are one that kind of amuse me. I think it's because I relate backpacks to being a little kid and being excited over picking one out at the... Continue reading

After being on the road for three weeks straight, it's been a challenge to get back into the swing of a regular schedule. My stomach and internal time clock aren't quite sure what to think. I'm slowly catching up on... Continue reading

Hi Martha, I'm not sure what version of the Selphy you're using but I have the CP910 and it creates a direct access point. So I don't have to connect the Selphy through my regular cable wifi, I just power it up and then search for it listed from my wifi networks on my phone (I think it gets called CP910something.) I'm not sure I'm explaining it clearly but basically it creates it's own wifi network for my phone to connect to. But there might be an update on your phone or the app that is preventing it? Hope that helps!

I print them at - you can do two 6x12's onto one 12x12 for pretty cheap and I resize them first in Photoshop

Hi Liz, sometimes the photos I want to use don't fit the designs of those pockets. I just use what will work for the photos and keep moving on instead of trying to struggle to make it fit into the pockets.

Logging in from some very sloooow free wifi in the Cambodia airport to make a reemergence on the blog. I have another spread + process video to share from my Project Life album, this time going back to April. It... Continue reading

Hi Sharon, I didn't have a chance to do one before leaving for a three week vacation. But the concept will be the same with folded papers, if you want to go that route :)

I found these photos I'd never uploaded on my camera that I'd snapped in Heath Ceramics in San Francisco back in April. It was my first time to this location and it was completely camera snapworthy. You might have admired... Continue reading

Hi there, I wasn't thinking of anything specific but they do have similar styles at Forever21.
Going forward with more Project Life posts and I was able to almost get caught up on everything before I left for Asia. Some of the album can only be seen in my Out of Pocket class at Studio Calico,... Continue reading

I've never attempted to do the capsule wardrobe concept that's popular right now, but when packing for this three week trip to SE Asia I knew I had to make more of an attempt. I wanted to pack light -... Continue reading

Hi Trisha, these were taken with the Fuiji x100: Here's a post about my favorite cameras and what I usually travel with too:

My visit to Portland back in January with Tina + Jamaica is like the gift that keeps on giving. Not only was it a wonderful time with friends who are incredible people, but traveling with scrapbookers is just the best.... Continue reading

There's no doubt that I have mad love for fish tacos. It dawned on me the other day how strong this love really is when I realized I've talked about Rockaway Tacos on pretty much every first date I've ever... Continue reading

I haven't approached American Crafts, I'm sure they weren't selling so they made the business decision to discontinue them and just stick with the WeR 6x12 albums.
I bought them at BHV in Paris but I'm sure you can find them online with some Googling!
Happy National Donut Day! I hope that everyone is celebrating this glorious day by eating a donut! I am actually in Manila in The Philippines right now and I did spot a couple donut-ish delights on my voyage out today... Continue reading

Hi there, I mostly carry my iPhone only for photos but more on what cameras I use + love are here:
Hi Vicky, I haven't made a mini yet but the papers are still sitting on my desk ready to be used! The concept is the same as the Food Coma that was last month :)
