I brought my angel home today

Using Creative Scrappers sketch #188.
I bought some angels on the 17th December, and have them placed on my entrance tables. So love the spirit or feel that they’ve created in my home and my heart.
Going to definitely believe more on angels and ask for their help in the coming year.
I so love the December kit from My Creative Scrapbook. That’s is what I’ve used for this layout.

I’ve finally took some photos of my December Daily, though it is not 100% done yet. Going to share about that in my next post.
Happy Saturday! The last Saturday of 2011.

Sketch, colors and pattern challenge

Came across a good sketch, a good color combo and pattern challenge that I took all and turn it into one layout instead of three different one.

 Here is one layout that I did using Creative Scrapper Sketch #165, color combo challenge #202 and a pattern to be in the layout – wood grain.

I’m also trying to use misting, stamping and embossing in my layout, no chipboard though. ‘Cos I’m thinking of the August challenge over at Scrap-it-lah. Still, I’m happy that at least this time I’ve used my masking template from Prima that I bought recently and today is it first time being used.

 I’m also loving the glittering embossing powder that I have on those pigment ink, what more I get to use my favorite stamps from Technique Tuesday Ali Edward design. Yup, have been using them for the recent layouts.

Are you joining any challenge lately. If not, why not join Scrap-it-lah August challenge, use Creative Scrapper’s sketches and the Color Combo with wood grain pattern.

CS #155 Life is good…

I love this simple sketch from Creative Scrappers. I knew I’m going to use my square punch after seeing it and of course using butterfly and swirl too.
since I have a small photo of my two sons taken using my hand-phone, I wanted to limit the white space of the layout, thus I’ve put a border around the whole layout. I wanted also to be bold in using red as the background, thus I chose red!! Here is what I came up with from the sketch:
I just love that I was able to capture this moment of them in the car looking at what they’ve taken using my camera. That’s why the title and journal go: Life is good if you share [more], love more, laugh more with each other.

 Those die-cute pop up stickers and felt stickers from Pebbles are just so fun to use and they are so adorable.

Love how it turns out though I still think that maybe I should be putting more things on the layout.
All the materials are from Scrapbook Daisies March kit #2 – Happy Go Lucky.
Have a go on the sketch and have fun!
Hoping for a great week ahead.

Layout using CS sketch

Gosh! It is May and I haven’t been updating here since last month!! I’ve been wanting to add things up here, but just couldn’t get a clear photo of what I’ve done. It is always late when I reach home and I always go out from the house early before sun rise. So indoor photo is not a clear one, thus I’ve been waiting till today.

Here is the first that I wanted to share. It is the unfinished layout that I did – “Sisters?”, I’ve added the journaling as intended using typewritter:

The second layout is using a sketch from Creative Scrappers #154
I love the look of those doilies in the sketch, thus I’ve used two sizes of doilies in my layout, which I’ve misted and stamped, here is what I’ve done using an old photo of my DS:
DS was about 2 years old, still chubby and with a cheeky smile. Love this photo, ‘cos I seldom get him smiling in front of the camera. 
I also love how those banner chip board come together in the layout. The doily stamp, the paper and the chipboard are all from My Mind’s Eyes. They made this layout come together easily.

 I’ve also misted those punched out butterflies and layered them to make them more steady.

Here is a close-up look on the layered doilies with stamps images.:

Thanks for stopping by.
To all my online friends who are mothers, Happy Mother’s Day to you all and I pray that you all will have a smashing Mother’s Day

CS #148 & journaling challenge

How are you all doing? Yes, my creative juices are back again, yay! And this time I’ve made another layout using Creative Scrapper’s sketch #148 plus using the challenge idea of journaling over at Scrapbook Daisies. This is what I came up with:

I’m using this sketch:

 All things are from Scrapbook Daisies Happy Together kit, except the doilies which are from my own stash. Just love the bling swirls that came with the kit. Swirls always make me think of butterfly, so here goes:

The pack of Prima flowers with glaze / thickles are just so pretty:

I’ve hidden my journaling behind the bottom left photo, which I’ve put another photo below too. A good way to include more photos in one page without jamming up the whole page.

The challenge over at Scrapbook Daisies is to use journaling spot in our layout, the best is of course do our journaling on those journaling spot.. Here I’ve used them for embellishment, title placement and journaling (date).

I love how the whole layout turn out, it has a soft feel with those misted doilies. And guess what? I put those doilies last into the layout! Thank God that they didn’t tear easily and the adhesive haven’t stay permanent yet. Ha!

Happy scrapping and I hope you’ll have an awesome weekend!

CS #145 – our little escape

Love this sketch once I saw it in Creative Scrapper and right away know that I need to scrap the photo that we’ve taken while we had our short trip to Sandakan. It was a trip to attend our friend’s wedding.
Here is the sketch:
And here is what I’ve done with the sketch together with the stash challenge over at Scrapbook Daisies:
The challenge is to use 3 buttons, 2 die-cut and 1 photo. I’ve use MM Slice machine to cut out the swirls, ink and mist them.
As for the buttons, they are from BoBunny, clear buttons, which I’ve glued them with PP behind to coordinate with my page.
When I saw the circle in the sketch, I knew that I would love to use doilies in my page and I did! Which I’ve mist it with Twilight color. Made some more flowers using doilies which also being mist.
Still love those butterflies punched out from Martha Stewart’s punch and the MM brads.

Thanks for stopping by and I really appreciate all your responds and comments in my blog, thanks for the blog love that you’ve sent you.
Hope you are having a great weekend.
Oh ya.. the PP is from Studio Calico. Hmm.. I’m really bad in keeping record of things that I’ve used, sorry that I am not able to provide all those products info for you all.

CS #139 – Christmas 2010

Did a layout using Creative Scrappers sketch #139 below:

I’ve got these photos of us in front of our brand new Christmas tree last year and it was our first year celebrating Christmas in our new house, finally call our own home.

Since the cardstock is a bit too empty for me, I’ve mist it with Maya Mist in Avocado Metallic Mist. I’ve inked those the “Christmas” chipboard with red ink, then mist them too. The “2010” was in plain white before.
Here you can see the same EK Retro flower punch again, plus a Prima flower and brad. Love that green button behind it, and that felt embellishment is just so cute!

Well, you still have a few days till the end of January to try out Creative Scrappers sketches and submit your link in their mister linky to stand a chance for their goodies.

I’m using the Christmas kit from Scrapping Daisies and I’ve just got another set of new kit in my mail today, yay!
Thanks for stopping by and happy scrapping.
I do love all your blog love!

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!

Sweet chubby you

Love those sketches over at Creative Scrappers, what more I can use it together with my Studio Calico kit!

Here is one that I have done using CS sketch
Here is a close-up of the flower that I did plus crochet flower from Dear Lizzy line:

Yes, I do miss his chubby face when he was still little, he has lost all those baby fat now and in fact a bit too skinny to me. When I look at him, I just thought to myself, hey you grow so much and too fast! I wish I can still see your chubby face.

Product used: Studio Calico Joyland kit.

Creative Scrappers reader reveals

This is the layout that has been revealed over in Creative Scrapper’s blog for their one month long celebration! I’m so glad that I get to do a layout base upon the sketch that Kristine gave me earlier. It seems to me that mine is so far the plain-ness one among all those gorgeous layouts that other readers revealed! Anyway, I had fun doing the layout with Scrapbook Deals 4U kit – Honey I’m home.
Here are some close-up of the embellishment:
The cut out flower from the PP with some blings in the center.
A cut out of the house in the PP with foam adhesive.
Those swirls that I’ve cut by using Slice.

Happy Wednesday!
