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.

Sketchy Thursday – March DT

I thought I was late again for Sketchy Thursday challenge, but it turns out that the due date is 19th Feb! Yes~~!
So, here is the sketch for March DT member challenge:

Here is my take with some distressing, inking and layering:

I love this photo of DS, I purposely shot half of his face and had him laughing in front of the camera to show his growing front teeth.

Everything is from the Scrapbook Daisies kit.

Happy Friday and wishing you a great weekend ahead.

Have you prepared for Valentine’s Day yet? Have you made any cards? I did! Will share about this later.

Happy Together using Pencil Lines #222

Pencil Lines is having some great sketches to be used. I’m using their sketch #222 for the layout below:

This layout is done using Fancy Pants Happy Together PP from Scrapbook Daisies October kit. Yes, I only got it a few days ago, wonder what happened to the delivery postman.

Am using the EK Retro flower punch to create more flowers again *teehee…*

I’ve cut open the Prima bling and the journal card that came together in the kit to be the embellishment in my layout:

Here is another tag that came along in the kit that I’ve tugged behind the Prima flower
Here is the look of my late Scrapbook Daisies October Happy Together kit:
Am intended to do more with this kit of course since I’ve only used two PP from the kit. Wish there are more such cute tags in the kit though.
Happy scrapping and have a blessed weekend.

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!

You, right now

Here is another layout that I did using My Sketch World sketch in the sketch challenge over at Scrapbook Daisies.
This is my take on the sketch with a photo of my 2nd DS taken quite some time ago:
Now.. you see, I still have lots of photos that I’ve taken just because I like the look of things at that time, and then afterwards, can’t find the right title for my page, maybe I should just do layout without title. Do you do that? I mean a layout with only journaling. 
Another thing that I wanted to try is to make part of the journaling as the title.
I have actually raised the little heart shape near to the bunny to make it more dimensional.
Am using Basic Grey Max & Whiskers kit from both Basic Grey and Scrapbook Daisies.

Gel-up style

This layout is a lift from LG’s layout and also with the use of Pencil Lines sketch 221
The flower is being made from my new EK retro flower punch, really glad that I’ve finally got the punch. On how to make the flower, there is a tutorial available over at Scrapbook Daisies forum.

The idea of using negative space of the butterfly punch is such a good one that I must use it in my layout too. Thanks LG.

After making this layout, I used the left-over and the idea of using negative space of the butterfly punch-out to make a card:

Using Scrapbook Daisies past kit – Echo Park life is good PP.

Thanks for looking and I love your blog love!
Happy weekend to you all!

Those precious moment

After the first layout in the year of 2011, I’m hoping to do more and get back to my creative self as soon as possible,, so I think so far I’m doing just fine.
I’ve been copying down sketches, challenges and started my scrapbook craft again.
Here is one that using Sketchy Thursdays sketch 1.13 and the color challenge over at Scrapbook Daisies using Seafoampeachwhite and melon. However I think I’ve added some other colors in there, like the green letter sticker and brown with red flower PP.
Anyway, here is the sketch:
And here is what I came up with:
I’m using the past kit from Scrapbook Daisies – Echo Park: life is good. I’ve actually been saving it for the right layout and here it is! There is still so much of my kits that I haven’t touch!
Going to share more of other challenges and sketches that I’ve done.
Happy Sunday!

First layout in 2011

I’m so glad that I managed to do my first layout this year and after that the 2nd and hopefully the 3rd one is coming.
To begin the year with an auspicious title, ha! So here is it: “Life is good”

Hopofully this new year is a really really good year to me and my family.
Am using the beautiful Basic Grey kit and some old stuff from other kit. I love how the mix and match turn out, which include pearls, doilies, glimmer mist, Teresa Collin’s butterfly, sticker and tag.

I hope you have had a great week and a fun week ahead. Don’t forget to join the Scrapbook Daisies’ blog hop.
Have fun!

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.
