Bird is the Word Challenge Blog

I stumbled upon this blog while browsing Nadia Cannizzo's blog yesterday and I straight away took up the challenge and created my own interpretation of the word "Admire" (or any form of the word such as admires). You can look for more info at their blog here.

I came out with a layout with some inspiration from Amelia and Mich. Both of them created their beautiful layouts yesterday using a Martha Stewart punches and I was thinking it has been ages I did not use my punches and why not use it for this layout. You know my punches are not sitting right infront of me and I forgot about my punches all the time - out of sight and out of mind. Thanks to both of them ;)

Just one simple layout with a little bit of layering and machine stitching (well you know me, I love sewing) on the photo, laces here and there.

my handmade blooms

the journaling has the word admire as well as the tittle

A very clean and nerd layout this time, I should say. Come and join the challenge over at Bird is the Word Challenge Blog and do share with us your layout. Thank you for dropping by and happy crafting.

you add so much joy and colors to our life...

It has been a while I did not participate in TCR challenge. Yesterday night, eventhough I am mojoless I tried my level best to do one layout for TCR and I did. Not so happy with the outcome however I would love to share with all of you.

I wanted to add a simple title but can't help and what a mess of alphabets...not very happy totally. Thanks for all the comments on my previous post, enjoy your week ahead and happy crafting.

Scrap-it-Lah : June Challenge

I have not updating my blog for quite long and I totally missed scrapbooking...

I had a fairly great weekend with my "two peas" in a bucket :) at home (you know who else? soul-mate and my girl). Spending time doing some simple gardening, out for a meals, celebrating father's day, having a tutti frutti time together, chilling at home, cooking together and we had so much fun spending time together. On Sunday morning before anyone busy to start their day, I get to do some scrapbook alone...without anyone disturbing me...ok just a few disturbance by my dear when I was talking to the paper and she will come and say "what happen?" that is so cute!

Back to the topic, I haven't played in Scrap-it-Lah challenge blog for so long and last week I tried doing a layout for their June challenge. Before that, had a chat with my DH and he said he can't live without us both...well why not scrap my photo with Miss Z.

Here is fairly simple layout done without any "paint", the paper is from my old Studio Calico kit last year and it is a beautiful paper...I totally like it and I try to blend my embellishments with the adding some sewing here and there, lace doily and paper doily...enjoy the pictures and thanks for dropping by. the way, about the paper...I have been following Michelle Alynn Clement's blog since last year and apparently she is the one who designed the paper. Handmade by her using collected vintage bits, lots of paint and ink, lovely vintage found linens and a whole lotta hand and machine stitching + some love.

look at those threads and vintage buttons

my handmade bloom and some vintage buttons

Added gauze roll and machine stitching and the title is pasted with a glue and machine stitching. The font is from Sizzix Endless Love dies.

Also a shout-out to Leeann Pearce...I did it! did some machine stitching without cutting the thread and I drag the thread from the top of the layout to the bottom and around the page...that is Leeann trademark. You might want to see those images above and look at my yellow thread it is everywhere in the layout.

I am now on a very slow mode for blogging, I am on the lighter side since I don't have mojo lately. This layout was created last month for Papier.

For more info on this layout, please head over here. Happy crafting and have a good weekend.

I am swamped with so many things to do currently and due to that I haven't had time to update my blog. So here I am and we are now in the middle of the year June 2011. This entry will be a short one and I would like to share with you some simple layout I did for the local scrapbook store here in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia...Papier. Thanks to Macy for the opportunity and I am glad to be the Guest Artist for June 2011.

This is the layout of my dear daughter and a little info on this layout: I randomly coloured the background with a turquoise blue acrylic paint. The laces are punched from MME patterned cardstock with Martha Stewart border punch. The two Prima flowers are white in colour and I mist both of them with yellow and blue colour. Pink cabochon flower pasted on top of the orange doily and as for the title I used Butterfly Kisses dies.

Thanks for looking and have fun crafting.
