Pencil Lines sketch 175

Did a page using Pencil Lines sketch 175, which was being introduced by Lady Grace and Iris Babao Uy, especially love their layout, so pretty. I decided to use this PP as the background after seeing it in Kristine’s site. I even happier to find that I still have the Maya Road sheer scroll frame album!

I’ve actually used the sheer album as the backing of the photo but have put the Glitz sparrow PP behind it to create a contrast for the photo.
Have cut out some flowers from the Fancy pants PP on those part that is being covered by the photo. Jumble them together with leaves and swirl that being cut out from my lovely Slice, still love it!
Another thing that I love is the Bella Blvd Honey I’m Home cutie owl, yup, pop it up with some foam adhesive.
Another thing I like is the Webster Pages little storytellers alphabet stickers and the jumbo Pink Paislee captivating chipboard stickers. uhhh.. and those cuttie felt from basic Grey woolies are just so cute!

Go, give it a try on the sketch and do submit it to their website for a chance to get their RAK.
Happy scrapping!

1st day at school

Have made a layout base upon the above sketch by PageMaps and have tried on making two Rhonna Farrer’s Rolled Fabric Flowers in my page though it is a boy page *grin*. Which later I add some buttons to make it more man-ly *LOL*.
Look at those rolled fabric flowers, they are fun to make:

Uh, and I’ve used my Slice to cut out an owl, yup! So fun! I’ve add blings on its eyes.

Head on over to Scrapbook Deals 4U and join in the challenge, you’ll have fun!

Product used: Scenic Route Metropolis PP, Glitz sparrow PP, Webster pages letter stickers, Kaiser craft blings and pearls, BoBunny buttons, American Craft letter thickers, some inks, and lace.

I’ve got it!!

Yes! I’ve got my Slice!! So cool! I know I know.. after trying it out and just couldn’t resist in using it to make a card out, I did this:

Yes, indeed, life is good! Have used up some scrap and did the dimensional flowers with gel medium, love it! Though I think the Pink Slice would be even better with hands-free function. Still, no regret!

Next I did this using the Scrapbook Deals 4U January kit, my belated kit actually, ‘cos it only came in a week ago, right before I have my holiday. So happy to have got it.

The photo was taken on the last day of 2009, one person is not in the photo is my brother. Yup, these are my sisters and parents, awesome, right!? Uh, and I’m loving that butterfly cut out using Slice. Am already thinking to get the other two Basic Elements design cards.. *grin*.

Uh, and I gotta find out where to get that oil absorbent piece of doily paper, just love it. There are in some other sizes too!
Oh ya, another great news, I’m having Internet connection at home now, yippie!!

Loving the quote

“Be you. Find you. Be happy with that.” Got it from Elizabeth Kartchner’s blog.

I was going through my photos recently and found this photo that I’ve which I’ve scrapped a similar photo before, and I wanted so much to play with the piece of paper that I got from Old Town Cafe (not sure what to call it), so I came out with this layout (sorry for the blur photo):
That butterfly has been in my stash for a long time which I don’t dare to use it as it is just so bulky which I’m worried that it will dent my other pages. Anyhow I just used for this layout and have used foam adhesive behind it in order to protect my paper from the wire used in the butterfly.
Yup, a good reminder for myself on being me 😉
Product used: BoBunny Flutter Butter PP, Prima flowers, Urban Lily journal paper, Queen & Co. felt, Fiskar border punches and some old trim.

My love

Did a layout using the twisted sketch : I didn’t submit my entry to be included in their sisterhood, this is just out of fun after seeing the sketch and those inspiring layouts from the DT girls. Here is what I came up with:

I’m using those left over from my previous kits of Scrapbook Deals 4U since I still haven’t got my January kit *bu hoo…*
Seeing here is my cutie family taken on the last day of 2009.
I’ve used crackle paint on the trimmed flower. Initially I actually wanted to used the thick gel, but I love the mistake *LOL*.
Journal: Yes, my love, I learn new things each & everyday from you, about you and made me know more about myself too. Thanks for being you. I’m grateful that I have you. – mom & wife. Jan 2010.

Read about this while we had our vegetarian lunch yesterday: “Be grateful of everyone, everything and at every moment.” (Hope I’ve quoted it correctly). It makes me think, yes, really, we should be grateful of the things that we have and even those that we don’t have.

Happy scrapping!

I’m a guest designer in …

Creative scrappers! Yes! I’m so honor and happy to see my own layout in others’ site. Kristine has been designing lots and lots of great sketches and I’ve been a stalker for her sketches ever since I discovered it months ago. Her designer team are fabulous, they can always come up with layouts that are so inspiring. Go on, head on over to Creative Scrappers and try out sketch #87 yourself. I would love to see your interpretation of the sketch.

Here is my take for sketch #87:

And a close up of those flowers, learnt to do this from Scrapbook Deals 4U‘s forum.

Me and hubby were just playing with our camera’s self-timer when I went over to visit him last year. It was totally funny, just look at his face *LOL*
Product used: My Mind’s Eye bloom and grow kit from Scrapbook Deals 4U.

As for now, I’ve done yet another sketch from her – sketch #85. I get to scrap my son’s overly exhausted photos after playing computer games. He just fall flat while the computer was still on with his game half-way done.
Love her sketches and yup, definitely going to keep on following her blog.
Happy scrapping!

The walk

I did a very quick but thoroughly thought over layout last night after seeing the sketch #76 of Creative Scrappers. One that hinted the use of paint or the same sort.I found the perfect pattern paper for this sketch and have used ink and glimmer mist on the background. The pattern paper is just nice for those photos as well as my boys were enjoying a walk along our neighbourhood road that are not fully done yet.

This walk of their is actually being called jogging by them. But instead we just walk.
In these picture, one of them was collecting pebbles, and one was carrying a stick. They wanted to go further up but lazy mom made up stories to get them home *grin*.
Product used: PP, buttons and stickers from Bo Bunny, glimmer mist from Tattered Angels.


I love those beautiful paper from BoBunny included inside the October kit of Scrapbook Deals4U, they are just so pretty. I’m getting the Delilah Kit and I’m loving every pieces of paper came in it with all those embellishment as well. I felt a bit sorry that I had to cut them up and there are also paper that are pretty on both sides! I haven’t come to use that piece that, it is going to be a hard decision for me to choose either side and forgo the other side..

The layout that I did is using the Delilah Kit and some extra embossing powder and vintage lace trim. I’ve got all my photos processed with white borders but then had to cut two of them out in order to get just the boys instead of the whole playground. And just to make it pop a bit, I’ve use foam adhesive on one of the smaller square.
I’ve also made some ruffles out from the ribbon that came together with the kit and finally put on the vintage trim to make it more complete. Ruffles inspiration from Moxie Fab World.
I’ve embossed several layers of red embossing powder on the title chipboard that came along in the kit.
It is just so fun to be able to create a page out from the kit.
Using laughter as a prompt from Categories Story. Truely, my sons laugh makes my heart sing. Love seeing them enjoying themselves in the playground through my high pitch voice shouting over “becarefullllll !” LOL
Yes, when I slow down, I can see that their true happiness became mine.

Espress yourself

Not really a well taken picture of the layout. Anyway, just wanna share this using the sketch from Creative Scrappers

Still having the “simple” in mind from Scrap-it-lah, I tried to use some of those journaling bits from Humbly Print and my stamp sets from Sassafras trim trimmery. I’m still thankful for those die-cut flowers sent in by Suzanne (Thanks Suzanne!).

Since I needed some tiny pearl for the butterfly body and I ran out of tiny pearls, I’ve cut up Jennie Bowlin Studio Pearl Flowers and used that as the tiny embellishment separated on those butterflies and on the overlay.

Thanks for looking.
Product used: Jenni Bowlin studio pearl flowers, Humbly Print journaling bits, Urban Lily doodle Daisy, Sassafras trim trimmery and black ink.

Finally done

Yes, exam is over and yet I finally got my paper in (just for share).

Here would be my take:

I’ve made some lollipops flowers to go along with it as I though flowers would be too girlie for this page. Those swirls are actually traces from a chipboard sticker backing and ink with green color ink. And since my sewing machine is not working and I’m so lazy to put it back on after my boys took off some part of it, so I’m using fake stitching on the edges.

I’m using Desiree’s “You gotta be”song’s relics as the title and journaling. I love that song, would really hope Cal will get what it means.
I’m also eagerly waiting for weekend to play with those papers and tools that I’ve been abandoning recently. I’ve got myself a pre-loved cutter from Creative Memories too!
