Vintage findings...

This entry is related to this entry (from Baby Blu), I had a lunch date with this gorgeous lady las Wednesday and we exchanged ATC - thanks for the ATC, I love it! we had lunch, chit chat non stop what else the topic are mainly about our interesting hobby, kids and our routine.

After the lunch off we went to Amcorp Mall for our vintage findings and we are so crazy over old tins, old spools, old typewriters, vintage black records, old play cards, old black and white photos, rustic keys, bus tickets and of course posing for the photographs. Check her blog for more info and story and here are some of my photos...

vintage spools

old stamps magazine that can be used as my background layout

The altered black vintage record album layout

Remember on this entry? It was a colourful layout from the vintage record album cover and here presenting a layout from the vintage black record album....

I used a candid photo of my girl under the sunshine, hence there is some lightning on her head in this photo.

coloured those notes, just to relate this layout to the vintage black record album. (after all she is the music in my heart)

those three words are from my Studio Calico Kit and I glued them on a chipboard, chipboard glued on a muslin cloth and raised using chipboard again to create dimension.

"always my sunshine"

trying to keep it simple as I can by not putting so many embellishments, however I can't help myself. This is my very first time using black vintage record album and I hope I can create more in the future. Thank you for looking and Happy Holiday!

the blue ball

I still owe my reader the black vintage record update. I am done with the layout just minor adjustment needed. I will blog about it once I am completely done.

Meanwhile, while still busy creating my acrylic album and the black vintage record I managed to do this 12 x 12 layout last Sunday. It is kind of simple but stitching is required, after seeing Sasha's layout with a lot of stitching sometimes, I decided to try on my layout. I misted a little here and there just to give some sparkle and added buttons everywhere. Here is mine...

Thanks for dropping by and have a good day.

My altered vintage album layout

This project has been pending in my mind for so long as I am busy with ATCs and my unfinished acrylic album. The idea of this altered art was from the Glitz Design and straight away I am off for my antique shopping. On top of that I even found few other things from my mother's house and some of her old possession are just too meaningful to throw away and instead I will be turning some of them into an altered arts. Thanks so much to Erin, Ginger and Laura for sharing your post and it is totally inspiring. I will definitely share with all of you once I am done.

On Wednesday I finally managed to pull this through and this is the outcome...
Just mixed everything and I should say it is purely or almost 100% Studio Calico. I used my Studio Calico kits' (I have too many of their kits'), and may be one or two of the embellishments are from my stash. Love how it looks like, colourful and bright! yes that is soo me...I will be creating more of altered vintage record album layout like this as I have few more to use, be it small, medium or large. Enjoy looking...

all vintage record album has a side pocket, so you can keep all your "memorabilia"

I have few more projects in mind but time is so limited, I need more time. Do you want to know what happen to the black record of this altered vintage album? Watch this space next week as I will be sharing with you real soon! Merry Christmas and thanks for looking! far...

I was busy trying to complete my acrylic album and I forget that I haven't been blogging for quite sometime. Finally, I am done with my 48 ATCs last week and I am happy with it and I can't wait for the swap! Managed to take some photos...yummy? no?

Come and lets join the swap! Thanks for dropping by and wishing everyone a Merry Christmas.

Crafty Sunday

I spent my Sunday afternoon creating an ATCs for my next some pictures of the sets that I have done. Lace and Thai silk for the edges, I love sewing, hence my ATCs. I would love to play with acrylic paints and medium but my girl will be painting not me so...that is another story. I will paint when she is sleeping if not we have two artists busy working at home.

busy working....

work in progress

So far managed to do 10 ATCs and more to come.

Crop Market and ATCs swap

I haven't been blogging and creating a layout lately. Plus my girl and my other half just recovered from their sickness and we also had so much fun from an awesome holiday with the family and all I could think of is my little crafty area, my work in progress "mini album", ATCs and tons of picture that I want to scrap. I don't know when I could finish my mini album that only 4 pages done...the rest is still on hold.

I had fun Saturday last week meeting up with crafters and friends. We have Crop Market at Papier and at the same time we do an ATCs swap. I swapped my ATCs with Amelia, Liza, Rosa and Sareena. I love all the ATCs and I even managed to find some other crafters' for my next swap.

All the below ATCs created by me have find their new home and if you are interested to swap your ATCs with me, please let me know.

I haven't had the chance to photograph the ATCs that I've got from them, will share soon in my next entry.

Not to forget thanks to Amelia, Sharm, Rosa and Teacher Jessy for an awesome tutorial and gorgeous work last week. Have a good weekend and thanks for dropping by.
