Can’t get in

So, we were “just outside” and that became the title of my layout. We went to a local Korean Restaurant on one Sunday morning, but we were too early and they were not open yet, somehow the boys discovered the cute miniature car just outside the entrance and wanted to snap photos with it.

I did a layout using a sketch from PageMap which is being used as the Sketch Challenge #66:

Here is my take for the challenge using Max & Whiskers PP which is meant for pets!

See how easy is it to use pets’ line of PP for normal day to day layout? I’ve used my green mist, distressed ink and lots of distressing on the edges.
Here are some close-up of the layout:

The ribbon is being sewed up together first before I adhere it on my page.

Oh ya.. Scrapbook Deals 4U is going to have a new site: Scrapbook Daisy pretty soon, and I’m loving the fresh new look of the forum!

Life is good

Did this layout using a sketch over at Scrapbook Deals 4U. Information are as below taken from the forum:

Scrapbook Deals 4 U is currently hosting three sketch challenges every month. You are not required to be a kit club subscriber in order to participate. You may use any products that you wish to use!


On the 1st of the month, a sketch challenge will be posted using a sketch provided by My Sketch World and you will have from the 1st through the 10th to complete the challenge. On the 10th of the month, the second sketch challenge will be posted using a sketch provided by Creative Scrappers and you will have from the 10th through the 20th to complete that challenge. Lastly, on the 20th of the month, the third sketch challenge will be posted using a sketch provided by PageMaps and you will have from the 20th through the last day of the month to complete the challenge.


Participants will earn one entry into the monthly sketch challenge prize drawing for each sketch challenge completed. Since there are three sketch challenges each month, there are three opportunities to earn entries into the monthly sketch challenge drawing. If you complete one sketch challenge, you will earn one entry into the drawing, if you complete two of the sketch challenges you will earn two entries into the drawing, and if you complete all three sketch challenges for the month you will earn three entries into the monthly sketch challenge prize drawing.


Shortly after the end of each month, the prize winner will be selected by random drawing from among all of the sketch challenges entries uploaded to the designated gallery folder within the allotted time frame. The winner will then be announced on the message board and will be instructed to PM Martha to claim their scrappy prize 🙂

So, if you are running out of idea and don’t know where to start, why not try out the sketch challenge, surely will get you going.

Here is my take for it using Basic Grey pattern paper from SD4U kit:

I did the middle ribbon by securing it with a brad and a felt flower, aren’t they cute? And that little fish, isn’t it cute!?
I think I’m back to my “distressing-self” for the moment *wink*.
Have a good day and happy scrapping!

Start preparing for cards

Yes, to my Muslim friends, Happy Fasting Month. And to myself, I’ve started to get ready for Raya by making some cards for my colleagues.
Here is one that I did with a lift from Ashley Harris:

I love the simplicity of this card design and the lace as flower center. Using some scrap left over from SD4U kit.
Thanks for looking!
Have a great Sunday!

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!

Lady Gaga inpired


Yes, we are to do a layout base on Lady Gaga’s songs’ title or relics over in Scrapbook Deals 4U Summer Camp Rock challenge, which I’ve picked “Boys, boys, boys” as the title, though I don’t remember listening to this song in the radio. But it was fun doing a layout using that title plus all those misting. I’ve used 3 different colors mists here! Fun!
Here are some close-up:

I’m using Scrapbook Deals 4U June’s kit. Love those Pebble’s chipboard and stickers. They are just so cute! I wish I had more of them!
I just had to try on some dotted doodling for the dragon fly, to make it looks like it is flying up.
Happy weekend and happy scrapping you all!
Oh ya.. these photos were taken under low light at night.

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.

Finally did one LO

Ya! After the long silent from doing any layout, here is one that I just did today using Scrapbook Deals 4U April shower kit. Love the kit, Martha always got great kit every month! Sometimes it is hard to choose from the 3 choices that she is giving.

Using Pencil Lines sketch 186 for this layout of my son “Silly You”. Yes, this boy always try to be funny and try to make his friends laugh. Here he was trying on the goggles” that the welder was using.

The butterfly came with the kit which I’ve embellished with some rhine stone (with the kit too).


The only thing that is not from the kit is the journal spot which is from Scenic Route. That is the left over (negative) which I’ve adhere on a piece of misted and stamped paper.

If you are looking for some challenges and inspiration, Scrapbook Deals 4U is offering much of that and I always get pushed to do something with my kit for the challenges.

Happy scrapping!

Following instructions

Haha! Fun! I’ve done a page just by following some simple instructions from Lady Grace over at Scrapbook Nook, have a glimpse of the page here. This is what I came up with. I wish I have the kite in LG’s page. It is so cute!
This is the page that I did using Scrapbook Deals 4U April shower’s kit, which is filled with Quite Contrary paper line.

Everything is from the kit except the cloud and the cardstock.

So, how was your Mother’s Day?
Mine is just like any other day. Normal *LOL*.

Art class life is good

This layout I did is one of the layout done during the crop in Scrapbook Deals 4U. The challenge is to use blue, yellow, distressing and flowers. So I’ve been using my doily again, which I have misted with blue mist.
Yup, another boy’s page with flowers, this time even the background PP also has flowers! What more with those Prima flowers! LOL! Oh, I do love that birdie! Everything here is from Scrapbook Deals 4U kit – April shower, well, except the doily.
The boys were in their art class, seriously having some art work done! Just look at them, so occupied! LOL!
Happy Thursday you all! I’m glad that tomorrow will be Friday!! Yippie!! Weekend!!
Will show another layout on Friday.
