You, right now

Here is another layout that I did using My Sketch World sketch in the sketch challenge over at Scrapbook Daisies.
This is my take on the sketch with a photo of my 2nd DS taken quite some time ago:
Now.. you see, I still have lots of photos that I’ve taken just because I like the look of things at that time, and then afterwards, can’t find the right title for my page, maybe I should just do layout without title. Do you do that? I mean a layout with only journaling. 
Another thing that I wanted to try is to make part of the journaling as the title.
I have actually raised the little heart shape near to the bunny to make it more dimensional.
Am using Basic Grey Max & Whiskers kit from both Basic Grey and Scrapbook Daisies.

Gel-up style

This layout is a lift from LG’s layout and also with the use of Pencil Lines sketch 221
The flower is being made from my new EK retro flower punch, really glad that I’ve finally got the punch. On how to make the flower, there is a tutorial available over at Scrapbook Daisies forum.

The idea of using negative space of the butterfly punch is such a good one that I must use it in my layout too. Thanks LG.

After making this layout, I used the left-over and the idea of using negative space of the butterfly punch-out to make a card:

Using Scrapbook Daisies past kit – Echo Park life is good PP.

Thanks for looking and I love your blog love!
Happy weekend to you all!


Yippiee!!! My layout was being selected as the Layout of the week over at Scrapbook Daisies, check it out here. The layout is being inspired by the sketch here.

Here is the layout that has been chosen as LOTW:

I’ve used the Echo Park kit from Scrapbook Daisies which is filled with colorful PP and cute stickers. Everything is from that kit except the two little birds which is from a previous kit.

Here is a close-up of those cute pin wheels:

Happy scrapping!

Can’t get in

So, we were “just outside” and that became the title of my layout. We went to a local Korean Restaurant on one Sunday morning, but we were too early and they were not open yet, somehow the boys discovered the cute miniature car just outside the entrance and wanted to snap photos with it.

I did a layout using a sketch from PageMap which is being used as the Sketch Challenge #66:

Here is my take for the challenge using Max & Whiskers PP which is meant for pets!

See how easy is it to use pets’ line of PP for normal day to day layout? I’ve used my green mist, distressed ink and lots of distressing on the edges.
Here are some close-up of the layout:

The ribbon is being sewed up together first before I adhere it on my page.

Oh ya.. Scrapbook Deals 4U is going to have a new site: Scrapbook Daisy pretty soon, and I’m loving the fresh new look of the forum!

Do believe

I just realised that I’ve a page that I forgot to share after loading its pictures here.
Here is it, a page that I need to have distressing on my title, used fabric and distressing:

I’ve used crackle paint on my lettering and did two fabric flowers.

I’ve used a random photo that taken in the car on our way home. Love that dimple!
I’ve used stash from here and there, you can tell that they are not from the same paper line, especially that shape die-cut PP that I’ve been putting off for a long time.

Happy scrapping!

Life is good

Did this layout using a sketch over at Scrapbook Deals 4U. Information are as below taken from the forum:

If you complete one sketch challenge, you will earn one entry into the drawing, if you complete two of the sketch challenges you will earn two entries into the drawing, and if you complete all three sketch challenges for the month you will earn three entries into the monthly sketch challenge prize drawing.

Shortly after the end of each month, the prize winner will be selected by random drawing from among all of the sketch challenges entries uploaded to the designated gallery folder within the allotted time frame. The winner will then be announced on the message board and will be instructed to PM Martha to claim their scrappy prize 🙂

So, if you are running out of idea and don’t know where to start, why not try out the sketch challenge, surely will get you going.

Here is my take for it using Basic Grey pattern paper from SD4U kit:

I did the middle ribbon by securing it with a brad and a felt flower, aren’t they cute? And that little fish, isn’t it cute!?
I think I’m back to my “distressing-self” for the moment *wink*.
Have a good day and happy scrapping!

Punches plus CS # 115

Here is a layout that I did joining in the challenge over at Scrapbook Deals 4U and using Creative Scappers sketch #115.

This sketch came in the right time when I needed to scrap these photos of my son taken in 1Borneo. They are not allowed to go into the game centre, ‘cos we don’t want them to spend money in there plus we were in a hurry, so instead, I offer them some photo ops with the ants out there in the entrance.
For the challenge, I need to use my punches. So here, I’ve used Martha Stewart’s butterfly punch, Fiskar’s border punch and Marvy circle punch. I had fun in knowing that I’m using all my variety of punches. Yes, I only have 3 different kind of punches. I’ve 3 Fiskars’ border punch, several Marvy punch and 3 Martha Stewart punch. Not bad huh?
Here are some close-up of the layout:

Am using kit from Scrapbook deals 4U.

Happy Weekend you all!

I think I love this baby more…

than my own son! Just look at him, so adorable! So cute!!
Introducing little Elijah!

This bundle of joy belongs to Aunty J. I stole one of her photo (with her knowledge) and made this page. I fell in love with that chubby cheek and beautiful eyes. Then it is just nice for me to scrap this for a challenge over in Scrapbook Deals 4U. This is also a layout that I stop worrying about if I should use flowers or doily in a boy’s page. He is just too adorable for not having any flowers there!

I have given this layout to Auntie J on Wednesday and really.. I felt like keeping it instead..hehe.. just too cute!

By the way, I’m using the Thrift shop kit from SD4U. Those cute crochet doilies are from Sweet Vintage.

Happy weekend! Mine now the boys are cleaning the drain!! Without even needing me to ask them to do so and I won’t get them to do that either. It is just that Mer saw the next door maid do that and probably he thinks it is interesting and thus he started to clean our drain now. Hope they are not making a big mess out there.

It is true..

That your love for each other is unmeasurable!

And of course I love seeing them sharing a cup of soft-drinks. Of course I love that when they share, when they are not fighting, when they are having fun together, laughing and teasing each other.. But it always has to stop somewhere before they overdoing it.
The ribbon is actually the left over from the doily trim backing which I’ve tied up with twine and add some blings:

I love the sentence that says “We do not remember days, we remember moments” It is so true.

Love how everything just came together in this layout using Studio Calico kit, plus the challenge from Scrapbook Deals 4U.

Oh ya.. Auntie J has posted about a layout that I did for cute little Eli, will post about it later.

Happy scrapping!

Lady Gaga inpired

Yes, we are to do a layout base on Lady Gaga’s songs’ title or relics over in Scrapbook Deals 4U Summer Camp Rock challenge, which I’ve picked “Boys, boys, boys” as the title, though I don’t remember listening to this song in the radio. But it was fun doing a layout using that title plus all those misting. I’ve used 3 different colors mists here! Fun!
Here are some close-up:

I’m using Scrapbook Deals 4U June’s kit. Love those Pebble’s chipboard and stickers. They are just so cute! I wish I had more of them!
I just had to try on some dotted doodling for the dragon fly, to make it looks like it is flying up.
Happy weekend and happy scrapping you all!
Oh ya.. these photos were taken under low light at night.
