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

Some of those blooms are just so outdated but I just used...

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.

Canvas and a card

Sharing with you a card I did last month from my DT kit left over and it is just a simple card, not a va va voom one ;)

On another note, all the DTs over at Scrappingville had the opportunity learning with Sharon on how to do this little girl canvas piece.  What an amazing way to create this with loads of techniques, mist, color, fun and laughter.

 That's all and thank you for looking and happy crafting...

Scrap-it-Lah October Challenge

Hello! Everyone, I have been busy scrapbooking and book binding for the past few days.  This time around no paint used may be on my 3rd layout...a bit of Jenni Bowlin paint dabber.  I managed to do this page with a lots of disturbance in between.  I have been feeling under the moon or should I say dark cloud lately but now I am getting much much better.  Comfort, hugs and kisses from the people around me makes me feeling good again.  However, sadness helps me a lot as I scrapped non stop for the past 3 days?? which is absolutely weird and it is a rare situation for me to produce 3 layouts in 3 days. Whatever!

This post is for the layout I did for Scrap-it-Lah October Challenge.  In this layout, the initial photo used was ruined by the Tombo glue and I ripped it off and finally got this photo of us (I know I have been using that photo often) but can't help it that is the only photo that is suitable for this page at that time.

The October challenge is to include:-
1.  Old book paper, music sheet or something similar
2.  Fussy cutting
3.  Hand-stitching using embroidery floss

Here is my take...

this time the title was used by doodling it on some pieces of papers and over lap it with my alphabets thickers this time around.

As mentioned earlier, the truth is this layout was pasted with my DD's photo at first and at the end of my process completing this page, I dropped some tombo glue right on the photo and on her hair and there you go...I ripped off the photo and got this photo of us as a replacement. 

I used the music sheet, fussy cutting done and as well as stitching by hand using embroidery floss.
That is all for now and come and join this month challenge over at Scrap-it-Lah and see for yourself all the lovely pages created by their DTs.  I have more layouts to share, have a blast weekend, because I know I will and see you in my next post.

Scrappingville - MEMORY

I am back...after missing for almost 2 weeks.  I have been meaning to share this with all of you a couple of weeks ago but I just don't have the right time to blog about this layout.  This layout was done for Scrappingville last month, as I mentioned before my kit is fulled with yummy goodies and I just don't know how to start.  With all the supplies and my two hands and a little bit of creative juices, I managed to do this layout...

I used the bottle caps given, on this page

I played a lot with stamping and gesso.

I used the die cuts to make two big tags as the background of the photo.

loving the layering and dimensions I have created 

the used of "kain guni"or burlap adds a little bit of vintagey feels to this page

I hope you enjoyed looking as much as I enjoyed creating and thanks for all the lovely comments on my previous post. I hope to share with you more when I have the time.See you in my next post.
