Coconut challenge and 2 LO

We at Coconut scrapshop are voting for the July Product Challenge now!

My submission is the “Yummy yum…” under this post. All need to be done now is to vote at Coconut Scrapshop forum. There are only two entries, one is mind!! So far the vote is very close. So maybe if you all can go over there and get yourself registered for the forum, then you can start voting.

As for layout that I’ve done, here are two, one is not done with journaling yet. First one is for little Mer when he turn 3 this year. This was taken just before sending him off to school. I’ve used a mixture of things from all over.

The blue felt is from HOTP monthly kit. White flower, pattern paper, lettering and the star chipboard are from Coconut Scrapshop July kit. Cream start from Maya Road. The tag and edge cardstock from Urban Lily bought from Scrap-n-Crop. Stamp from Hero Arts

As for the one below are made from Coconut Scrapshop July kit with American craft chipboard and form lettering. The skulls are from Coconut Scrapshop May’s kit.

My two boys were just making silly faces besides their grandfather who normally would be very strick to them, seen here not smiling.. *LOL*

‘L’ mom LO and cards

Just did a layout from Coconut Scrapshop July Kit. ‘L’ mom is the title. Yup, I’m an L license mom, one that is new and still learning.
The blue cardstock is from Bazzill Basic which I just bought from Scrap-n-Crop, so regretted that I only order one! I should have order at least 2 pieces of this blue, I love the color, it is actually a little bit purplish, darn, I don’t know what name is it now. It is just nice to go along with the Liberty line of Scenic Road pattern paper. The word ‘mom’ is form thicker from American Craft, also got it from S-n-C, it is so easy to use and flexible.

The L license mom: Being a first time mom, with new experiences, new feelings, new responsibilities, new priority and lots of uncertainty.
With Calvin since birth.

I’ve actually did another LO using the July kit but lack of journal at the moment, will post it up once I did.

I’ve also used the left over scrap to make a card which I’m going to use it to enter for the July Card Challenge in Coconut Scrapshop.

Now I wonder how much does this card cost and how do I value them or would there be anyone who’ll buy these cards.. Another one is by pattern paper from HOTP and flower from Prima.


LO over the weekend

Have fun using the Coconut Scrapshop July kit and I’ve finally use the lettering that came together in their May’s kit after sitting there for more than a month! I still have lots of other patter papers, stickers including letter stickers, tags, die-cut and ribbons that I haven’t used in my stash. I know some day I’ll find a suitable place for each and every single thing in my drawer.

The one below has used up some scrap left over from other LO. I just placed them behind the photos. Got this idea from Scrapbooks.etc magazine. I’ve finally found a suitable place for my velvet felt flowers too. Glad that they can blend in this LO. I still have a bit of self-criticism though. I think the number 2 should be lower a bit and let the U R be inside the circle..

Below is another layout that inspired by Scrapbooks.etc magazine. The background pp is from Autumn Leaves, the front pp is from Scenic Road that came in with the July kit. This is the first time I sew swirl in my LO. And I’ve incorporated the butterfly which is a form stamp as the apostrophe of my title.

Self-criticism is that maybe the photo together with the white pp can be in the middle of the page more.

This photo actually being taken years ago in Trincomalee, Sri Lanka when we went over to visit hubby who were working there then. This is little Cal in the picture, taking time to enjoy every little bit of things outdoor. I just love this photo, it feels a bit like those cartoon in Precious Moment.

I’ve been dreaming for a scraproom like the one below taken from Making Memories’ blog and they have shown that during CHA recently. Just love the green color and the simple setting. Could someone please buy me a room like that? 😀

After the glue, came..

I just can’t wait, so what I did was to get down to Wisma Merdeka, Jeannette Craft shop to get my glue, but they only have liquid glue pen and way more expensive than Scrap-n-Crop (from USD3 something to RM24 in their place!) Anyway, I was desperate and dumb me, I got two! One fine tip and the other middle tip. Ok, I got something else with that also – fabric gel pants, which dried up in solid form. I haven’t play with them yet. Hopefully they work well on chipboard.
So I’ve been working last night, finished one layout and left one that need journaling. I’ve also done 2 layout days ago that need journaling.

The one above is using Coconut Scrapshop July Kit. I’ve only used 2 double sided PP from the kit with some buttons and flowers, a tag and chipboard letter. Layout inspired by the sketch that came along in the kit.
Journal: The boys enjoy anything cold with ice, but Mer doesn’t like ice-cream as much as Cal, he just loves his cup of ice lemon tea from mommy. Cal loves his cup of strawberry ice-cream, and they both happily pose for the camera.

The one above is done days ago with lots of colors, which I think maybe a bit too much.

Journal: The boys were doing summersault when they saw the colorful mate in the library children’s area. After a few unsuccessful tried, they discovered that the mate has mismatch color which they insisted to change and beautified. They had so much fun. Library HQ, Luyang. 5 July 2008 This is a scraplift or rather a copy, ‘cos I’ve used almost everything same pp from the original layout of Laura Vegas. The round embellishment is actually from a broken bracellet. I’ve written about this in another blog here.
Journal: A not so usual morning of Sunday spent with family. Cal loves his mushroom soup with garlic bread and finished his Spaghetti, rewarded with ice-cream. Half way eating, Mer prepared the space for himself to sleep and we get to enjoyed some quiet time. After that was a stroll in City Mall trying to check out the kids shops and got my photos processed.

I’ve used Coconut Scrapshop July kit for this as well. Got the title from Cal’s shirt and layout sketch from Zest blog July layout sketch. This is another layout that only used 2 double sided pattern papper from the kit. Made the embellishment by using felt and buttons.
Journal: Respect is what you need to earn, and what you need to learn.
