Liza & I

Among all the photos that I edited and developed, there are quite a number of the photos taken during my scrapbook class and related. Here is one of it, sharing with you my photo with one of Papier's Designer named Liza

a simple page again, did some sewing at the edges, I hand sewed the pink seam binding so that I get that pink ruffles, I purposely scattered the buttons all over the page like what I did before for my "Safe in my Arms" layout.

Many of you do not know that this lady loves cooking, baking, good in teaching, great scrapbooker, good in sewing, she owns quite a number of sewing machines - Elna, Jenome, Apple, Singer and coming is Bernina.  She is one of my ATC swap buddy, she share ideas a lot, she is honest, funny and if I go on and on this entry will be long. Through this hobby I met a lot of creative souls and thank you Kak Liza and all for the friendship.  Everyone has their own place in my heart and all of you are special in your very own way.

 Keep watching this space as I have more layouts and posting scheduled to be shared and thanks for dropping by. xoxo

 Happy Wednesday everyone, I hope you had a great weekdays so far. I am in the mood of sewing and has been sewing for the past few days.  Another layout again and everything I used here are from my old scrapbook kit.

I kind of like the background paper as hardly use green to scrap and I also used bit and pieces of Basic Grey papers. I enjoyed creating simple layout nowadays and it keeps me going and without even have to think hard on how much paint or what medium to add and so on.  Feels so good to have used my old collection of scrapbook kit.

Thank you for dropping by and happy crafting. Toodles!

Safe in my arms

 I was digging all my scrapbook kits and I am glad that I managed to get some scrappbook done, not all but some of the papers are being used...sounds good enough for me. I also developed quite a number of photos recently and there are more reason to scrap.  Here sharing with you a layout I did using Nantucket collection from Pink Paislee.

A very soft colour page with a very minimal embellishments and I kind of like this simple page. It took me less then 20 minutes to have this page done. That's all for today and thank you for stopping by and happy crafting.  xoxo

 Another page I did on weekdays and this is so simple and I have now been using my many Martha Stewart punchers that I have in my collection. For a layout like this, using punchers and minimal embellishments are just enough. I will post more...thanks for dropping by.

Turns 2

*picture of my girl early this year, insisting on blowing the candle again after taking her bath.

 Happy Saturday! everyone and I have been missing again as I am totally caught-up with so many things to do. My mojo for a layout is so low and I have not been scrapping last week but this week the mojo is back but with minimal creative juice. I realized that scrapping this style brings me loads of idea as it is very straight forward and I have done 8 layouts so far and I am happy with it.

I hope you guys have a great and creative weekend as I know I will be busy creating and sewing.  Thanks for dropping by and see you in my next post.

More more ATCs

Hello! All, been missing for many weeks as I have been busy spending time with families and relaxing without doing any scrapping except making ATCs. I am just happy as my mojo for ATCs are just pouring like water immediately after I came back from Liza's class on altered box for ATCs over at Papier last month.

I am happy that my swap group for ATCs has been growing not big but just ok and enough for us to gather once in a while catching up over lunch, chatting while swapping ATCs. It is so fun, as we do not see each other every week but at least once in a month. To all my swap buddies, you know who you are and your ATCs never fails to put a big smile to my face every time I look at them.  I learned a lot of techniques along the way and every single ATCs is unique in its own way and it is always a "limited edition" one of a kind...hence grab fast!

On top of that, I have not scrapped a layouts regularly nowadays as my mojo for 12 x 12 are just gone for an early Christmas I guess. Managed to do about 2 layouts with a very minimal mojo in my head!  but that have to wait until I have the time to share.  Here I am sharing with you some of my ATCs so far...

It has a few groups...the divas group, the punchanella group, the birdies group, the secret/vintage diaries group, the body forms group, the seam bindings group, the colored metal group and the misc. group.  I love all of the ATCs...

the dress form
*these one are very easy to do just a stamping and I sew a little piece of tulle to form a black netting dress added some white beads and I sew the edges of the ATCs with sewing machine using pieces of left over materials.  Only one of the ATCs are different without a dress but a vintage button pasted on it.

the punchinella
*these I used texture paste and punchinella as a stencil and I coloured the ATCs using Inka Gold, Donna Downey and some rub and buff colours.

the seam binding
*I did these yesterday night while watching "Jack and the Neverland Pirate" with my girl, basically just a pieces of scrap papers, buttons, laces, flowers and seam bindings...look like a tag but a small version tags.

the divas
*those vintage photo I got it from the "darkroom door" and I cutted them nicely using my vintage photo cutter and added some laces, colours, old book papers, Inka Gold colours and I sew them using my sewing machine and you can see my black zig zag thread and I added title on every Diva...example Miss World, Miss Vain, Miss Sissy, Miss Photogenic and so on...

the coloured foils 
*these are after Liza's inspiration and those are embossed using Ten Seconds Studio's dies. Easy peasy....

the misc
*these are a mixture of everything and very easy to do but look great in real life as most of it has textures...

the birdie
*these birds are done using a flower petals and the bird is from the new Sizzix dies and some stamping on the backgground and added some Donna Downey colours to the feathers.

*the secret/vintage diaries and copper foil
*I had so much fun doing these ATCs as it is totally vintage and I basically used the copper foil and hammered all the alphabets one by one to form a word or sentiments. As for the bird feathers, I used Melissa Frances flakes and it is kind of white/transparent in you can't really see the feathers.

Ok thats all for now, got to go and the weekend is almost here and thanks for all your comments on my previous post, happy crafting and see you in my next post.  Toodles!

playing ball

The weather here is raining every day hence, my mojo is so low and lazy to do anything crafty. Except a few ATCs and I do spent my quality time with the family.  My girl is going to be 3 soon in the next couple of months and she is so talkative nowadays.  Here a layout of her photos playing a ball in the evening at the local park.  Well, when it rains the grass are wet so the field and she run and run until all her clothes are wet...giggling, laughing, yelling and everything, she has the energy of 24/7.

A very simple layout I did 2 weeks ago but haven't had the time to share, it was for some challenge which as usual I totally forget to submit and for which blog. I have more projects to share, lets see whether I will be blogging again tomorrow.

Thanks for dropping by and happy crafting.

Layout I did on Wednesday for a challenge but I can't remember from which blog.  I used Prima flowers again and the rest are just my left over papers, laces, leaves given by friend, button, corrugated board, Kaisercraft butterfly and etc.



I blogged and posted my layout almost every day this week, hence I might not be blogging next week. However, it depends...if I have something new I will share with all of you. On the other note, I am busy doing book binding and taking orders from friends which turn out to be very good. If you guys interested to buy a hand bound book please leave me a comment. Thanks for reading and all the comments on my previous post and enjoy the weekend everyone and happy crafting.

Here sharing with you another layout I did "last week" and I used the old p/paper, my last month scrapbook kit, red burlap from my swap buddy and my never ending stash.

The "S" and "M" sizes from my last month scrapbook kit

added paint dabber here and there on the page

What I love the most while doing this page is that, my last month kit has this "Jenni Bowlin" pink paint dabber and it was my first time using it and I kind of like it as I dabbed dabbed dabbed the pink paint here and there, you can see it on the page.  Another one is the "S" and "M" sizes logo, which was in the kit as well and here in the layout I used it to differentiate - the baby (in S size) and my girl (in M size).

Thank you for looking and thank you for all the lovely comments and do come back for another layout tomorrow. Cheers

Smart Cookie for Creative Scrappers #178

Hi! I am so happy as I managed to scrapbook every other day and my mojo is here to stay (as for now) what a fabulous time when I get to scrap (minus the disturbance). My layouts lately is more to putting layers and playing with flowers...I find it good as I get to used all my prima flowers stash that I have been hoarding for ages. Some of those blooms are just so outdated but I just used...

Here sharing with you another layout of my dear daughter that I did on Monday. Enjoy looking as much as I enjoyed creating.

Take a peek at Creative Scrappers challenge blog as this one will be going there.

Thanks for dropping by, thank you for all the lovely comments on my previous post and do come back again as I have more layouts to share. Cheers.

Off late, I found it hard to get my creative juice flowing if I want to create a layout using medium/paint.  Hence, my layout lately is just playing with papers and layering and this one was done last week and simple indeed. I wanted to create a va va voom banner, instead I opted to something simple and easy. I cut the flat bottle caps into 2 and glued - thats it!


I am going to submit this to {Create} Make It Happen challenge blog and that is all for now and thanks for all the lovely comments and come back tomorrow as I have another layout to share.
