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.

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!

Easter kit

But not Easter layout. Here is one that I’ve done using Scrapbook Deals 4U Easter kit and Sketchy Thursday’s sketch:

Yup, those are real bomb shell that the boys were excited to see over in Great Aunt’s place. We had a great time there right before Easter, they got plenty of green place to run around with their long distance cousin.
I definitely love those colors in the PP of We R Memory Keepers Hippity Hoppity line. Just look at the embossed stickers:
So, how have your Easter go? Mine wasn’t being filled with eggs hunting, in fact we don’t have that over here. We did went for a breakfast together though and the boys had had enough of eggs that I had to finished up their breakfast scramble eggs! All 6 eggs!
Happy weekend!
Oh ya, I’m definitely going to do more layout using this kit and using those sketches over at Sketchy Thursday. And I still have those PP from Studio Calico! So happy!

2 page layout about my space

Yup, another layout done for the challenge over in Scrapbook Deals 4u. This time is about myself and it needs 4 to 6 photos in a 2 page layout. So I did it! These photos doesn’t even got my face in there! Haha..

I’ve used my Slice to make those flowers and also the gel medium to shine them all:

Love my Slice! And of course love what I have at the moment in my space, am grateful that I have such place to scrap.
Happy Scrapping!
Product used: Prima Moda PP, BoBunny Delilah PP and stickers, Honey I’m home stickers.

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!

Product used: Scrapbook Deals 4u Basic Grey Origins kit.

Bad Romance?

Yup, my boys like to sing along with Lady Gaga’s Bad Romance.. due to its catchy word in the beginning part, he even insisted to finish the song before getting out from the car when it was on in the radio!

So I did a layout about this based on the sketch from A Million Memories with a twist – to use song title or words of the song in the layout. Here I used part of the relics.
And also.. I’ve used some lollipop flowers in this layout which is for a challenge over in Scrapbook Deals 4U.
Love those paper in the Origins kit from Scrapbook Deals 4U and I’m going to get a 2nd set later from Basic Grey!! Wuhoo!!
Happy Scrapping!

Finally, Helen is reviewing a challenge in her blog. Here is a great sketch that you can use for your next layout by Helen Croft:

She is having a challenge going on at the moment, do head over to her blog and check out other designers’ layouts. Here is my version of the sketch:

All the materials are from Urban Ink kit from Scrapbook Deals 4U.
Yes, I’ve got a four-eyes guy in the house now. Me myself already gone for Lasik to treat my sight and now my son probably getting my bad gens. Yet, he is proud of it and kept on showing off to others his new specs. Yes, this boy, no longer look so small now.
Happy Scrapping!

Creative Scrappers sketch – Oh dear!

Have tried to layer those embellishment that I got from the kit and am loving those bling raised up stickers.

Happy scrapping!

Product used: Basic Grey Origins kit, American Craft letter stickers, Creative Memories PP (for the photo backing.)

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!!
Product used: We R Memory Keepers layered chipboard – teenangst, Bella Blvd Honey I’m Home PP and label additions, Maya Road chipboard, Making Memories Paperi, Slice basic element 1 design card, Tattered Angels glimmer mist.

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!
