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:

Happy Weekend you all!

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

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.

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!

I am

This is an old photo of me during our annual dinner. I was wearing my Saree that I’ve get it tailor made in Sri Lanka years ago, it should be more than 5 years ago. Well, I still look Chinese in that Saree *LOL*.

This layout is inspired by the challenge over at Scrapbook Deals 4U and a sketch from Creative Scrappers #96.
I’m loving those doily that I got from the baking shop. Misting them away with my Tattered Angels mist in brick. And then making them into flowers, aren’t they just cute!? They are pretty easy to make, just mist them, then push the center together, adhere the back with some glue and embellish the center with a button. If the center is too bulky, snip off those extra paper that have been pushed up and you’ll be fine.

Oh, and I’m still loving my Slice for cutting out the butterfly which I’ve stamped and painted with some crackle paint. I love the effect.

Happy Tuesday!

More Origins

Here are two layouts that I did over the weekend.

First, I felt cool and kind of dolly with my just out of salon hair *LOL*, that’s why taken this photo while stopping in the traffic light, silly me huh? But that’s the best time to take photo actually.. and I’ve play with Picasa and get this result from my normal color photo. This is actually done for a sketch challenge over at Creative Scrappers sketch #94

Have used Origins kit again and I’ve tried to use as many things as possible from the kit and yet, it is still a lot left, I still have almost one whole packet of felt embellishment.

I’ve used Tim Holtz crackle paint on the sticker flowers which I’ve adhere in cardstock.

I really want to learn how to layer my embellishment to make them more interesting, but I always ended up using just sparingly.

Another layout I did using the Origins kit and for another sketch challenge, this time is for Scrapbook Deals 4U sketch #52.

I’ve done a bit of stitching here, since I’m not sure what to do with the circle in the sketch and I don’t want to use too many pattern paper in this layout, so I stitch!

Those swirls are from Making Memories Slice basic element card 3.

These are my 3 boys at a day out in somewhere cooler. I’ve ran out of “o”, so I’ve cut part away from the number 6. Not bad huh?

I’ve used my crackle paint again on the flower sticker, am loving how the paint made the flower twisted up a bit.
Go have some fun with these sketch challenges, it will give you a head start on your layout and really help you do make your pages, I know they do.

Happy scrapping!

Boys will be boys

Have done another layout using Creative Scrapper’s sketch #93. It is a very simple sketch and filled with lots of possibilities. This is what I came out with using Scrapbook Deals 4U Urban Ink kit. The kit is filled with boy’s stuff!

I’ve used Tattered Angels glimmer mist on those star chipboard and it blend well with my layout, color coordinating with my DS’s jeans! Then I adhere some buttons here and there on them.

I’ve fully used up even my foil sticker backing on the layout! And am using one of the Soft Spoken stickers as the title.
Yup, boys will sure be boys.. Here, my DS is posing with his Transformer truck and look so proud of it.
Do check out Creative Scrapper’s site for great sketches.
Happy Scrapping!

Creative Scrappers sketch – Oh dear!

Did a page using the CS sketch #92 above with my Basic Grey Origins kit from Scrapbook Deals 4U.

I’ve the full story hidden behind the photo, he looks so pity huh?
Have tried to layer those embellishment that I got from the kit and am loving those bling raised up stickers.

Happy scrapping!
