Scrap-a-little sketch #50

I’m so thrill to receive a package filled with Fancy Pants’ Delight papers the other day. It is from Helen of Scrap-a-little. She has got flower tutorials, sketches and techniques to share in her blog. Her sketches are all here in her sketch blog.
To thank her for the gift, here is a layout that I did using her sketch #50:

I’ve been wanting to scrap these photos awhile back, but just didn’t find the right sketch or the right mood to do it. It is in fact just two different pictures, one is the copy of the other one if you look closely.

I’ve used a lot of Technique Tuesday Ali Edward’s stamps on this layout with different ink.

 The letter sticker is while on white doily, but since it has dimension, you won’t have problem reading it.
That butterfly is from Martha Stewart’s punch, misted and layered together.

Helen has got so many great sketches for you to try out, why now pick one or pick some today and start creating. She’ll be happy if you can quote her site once you’ve used her sketch.
Here is how all those pages look like, I’ve fan them out and I’ve only used one of the paper to make the layout above, plus my own craft and cream card-stock.

Have fun and have a great weekend!

With Scrap-a-little

First off I wanted to talk about the layout that I did for ScrapStreet using Helen’s sketch number 16. 
Here are a close-up of those hand-made flowers using doilies:
I even used one big doilies for the background embellishment:
Yupe, this is my father-in-law, one who is soft-spoken and well, a bit too skinny:

I’m using Basic Grey Kioshi paper which is mostly in purple color. I’m not a big fan of purple, that’s why I seldom use purple in my layout. Purple in itself is pretty, but it is hard for me to scrap using purple color. But I think this layout turn out okay.

Next is about the layout using Helen’s September sketch, one that to me is very easy to work with:

I’ve ink those letter sticker with white ink to match with my layout and have stamp swirls on the cardstock to add a bit of interest:

I just love Martha Stewart’s butterfly punch, can’t get enough of it and yes, I’m not tire of it yet, hee..
Distressing, distressing, lots and lots of distressing for this layout.
Here is the whole layout:
I’m using Basic Grey Max and Whisker’s paper for this layout.
Both pattern paper is available in Scrapbook Daisy. And do use Helen’s sketch to join in the challenge for the month.
Check them  out!

Color Room sketch

So far, I haven’t play in the Color Room yet.. this is one that I’m using their sketch instead of their color pallette. See those butterflies? (Again ;))

This is my DS learning how to make sushi during a class that I’ve enrolled him and my 2nd DS. He totally love it and now wanted to have sushi one a while.

Got the pinwheel idea in the Scrapbook Deals 4U forum. Fun thing to make.

Product used: left over of all scrapbook deals 4u kits, Scenic Route kit from Helen (scrap-a-little), and those Kaiser craft pearls and gems that I got from Scrap-n-Crop.

The online crop and an announcement

How was your National Scrapbook Day gone? Have you got yourself some goodies or have done several pages joining in the online crop?

Mine was fabulous! I’ve had so much fun and have got all 5 pages done! Yes!!
Will share about them later. As for now, I have this layout to share with you today:

This is for the challenge over at Scrap-a-little, that is to create a new layout using (90%) Basic Grey products.

Yes, in the photo is my boys with their grandpa, during their visit to a palm farm and seeing the palm for the first time. They don’t look that excited in the photo, but in actual fact, they were!

Everything in this layout are from Basic Grey Origins line, except those doilies. I’m loving those doilies from the baker shop and those stickle stickers from the same BG line is just so cute!

So, head on over to Scrap-a-little ning site and start creating layout using BG PP and products now. you have until May 31 to upload your layout to the ning site. One lucky winner will get this from Helen:

Have fun!

Product used: Basic Grey Origins line.

Scrap A Little blog hop

Hey there, been wanting to do this which is so fun when I join in for other sites. Yes, a blog hop!
This is our first design team blog hop for Scrap a little, it is for April’s challenge as well.

I hope you’ve come from the right place, if you are not, then hop on over to Scrap a little and start from there, you won’t wanna miss anything and miss the real challenge for April!

The song that I picked is “Say what you need to say” by John Mayer.

Take all of your wasted honor
Every little past frustration
Take all of your so-called problems,
Better put ’em in quotations

Say what you need to say [x8]

Walking like a one man army
Fighting with the shadows in your head
Living out the same old moment
Knowing you’d be better off instead,
If you could only . . .

Say what you need to say [x8]

Have no fear for giving in
Have no fear for giving over
You’d better know that in the end
Its better to say too much
Then never say what you need to say again

Even if your hands are shaking
And your faith is broken
Even as the eyes are closing
Do it with a heart wide open

Say what you need to say [x24]

To me, this song means to really say it out rather than keeping it ‘cos you might not have the chance to say what you need to say after wards.

I did a layout base on this song using Creative Scrapper’s sketch #97 and I’ve used other quote for the journaling which read “Those who matter wont’ mind, those who mind wont’ matter.”

My son just grow so much! I still miss his chubby toddler look.
Now, let’s just choose a song and let’s hop on over to the next blog – back to Scrap a little! Don’t forget to link to Mr. Linky over at Scrap a little for your layout!

Have fun!

Edited: forgot to mention this:

Product used: American Craft PP, Basic Grey Origins kit, Scenic Route letter stickers.

A sneak on what will happen

There is going to be a design team blog hop for Scrap a little. Being one of the designer, I’m in the list for your hop too. So check back in on 1st April which is 2nd April over at my site for the details and fun challenge ahead!

Here is a sneak on my layout for the challenge:

Be sure to come back here again!

Challenge over at Scrap-a-little

Yupe, I’m honor and excited to be one of the DT in Scrap-a-little. Helen is doing the first challenge over the site. It is about using Pink, Brown and Blue in the layout, with a little twist – use the word “NEW”. I would be fun to see what you all come up with, so head on over to Scrap-a-little and join in the fun!

Here is my take for the challenge:
It is about my son’s graduation from kindergarten. My little boy has grown up to be a little man and he has so many friends who wants to be in the picture that I was having difficulty to include them all in this layout, thanks to smaller print that I’m able to do that.
I have made two popsicle flowers using round puncher and those flower pearls and Prima flower on top.

So, have fun!
Product used: Prima flowers, My Mind’s eye Marrakech PP, Marvy circle punch, Making Memories journal pad, Fiskar border punch, some red flower pearls.
