Thankful – birthday layout and Craft wording

Hello there, greetings! Thanks for stopping by.

Today, I want to share a page that I’ve made for my boy’s birthday.

Didn’t use anything new, everything from my old stash.. no purchase is allowed at the moment since I still have packs and packs of stuff in my scraproom.

So, here goes..

Some details in close-up..

Last picture shows that Prima make-a-swirls stamp with embossed powder. That swirls set is very versatile, can use it anywhere of the page.

That pop-up flower on the top left is from Basic grey, same goes with that swirl. They are the layered stickers.

While thoseΒ two green and yellow flowers are from Original Collection that I got from Popular bookstore. Never thought I would have found any scrapbook stuff there. Now even Kaison are selling sticker alphabet from American Craft at just RM3.90!

 

Talking about Kaison, I bought myself some wooden alphabets at RM1.90 each and made this deco on my craft-room:

Just added some Prima flowers and roses. Those little owl and animal’s pegs shown on the wall are from Kaison too. It is what happy place that I like to browse.. and well.. sometimes bought cute stuff for the house.

Hope you are having a great weekend!

LO over the weekend

Have fun using the Coconut Scrapshop July kit and I’ve finally use the lettering that came together in their May’s kit after sitting there for more than a month! I still have lots of other patter papers, stickers including letter stickers, tags, die-cut and ribbons that I haven’t used in my stash. I know some day I’ll find a suitable place for each and every single thing in my drawer.

The one below has used up some scrap left over from other LO. I just placed them behind the photos. Got this idea from Scrapbooks.etc magazine. I’ve finally found a suitable place for my velvet felt flowers too. Glad that they can blend in this LO. I still have a bit of self-criticism though. I think the number 2 should be lower a bit and let the U R be inside the circle..

Below is another layout that inspired by Scrapbooks.etc magazine. The background pp is from Autumn Leaves, the front pp is from Scenic Road that came in with the July kit. This is the first time I sew swirl in my LO. And I’ve incorporated the butterfly which is a form stamp as the apostrophe of my title.

Self-criticism is that maybe the photo together with the white pp can be in the middle of the page more.

This photo actually being taken years ago in Trincomalee, Sri Lanka when we went over to visit hubby who were working there then. This is little Cal in the picture, taking time to enjoy every little bit of things outdoor. I just love this photo, it feels a bit like those cartoon in Precious Moment.

I’ve been dreaming for a scraproom like the one below taken from Making Memories’ blog and they have shown that during CHA recently. Just love the green color and the simple setting. Could someone please buy me a room like that? πŸ˜€

My Scraproom

This morning my handphone is coordinating with me, it lets me upload photos into my PC.. buoy it was so hard to get it work huh… I wonder what is wrong with it..
anyway, I just wanna show some pictures of the scraproom that I have been talking about. Don’t expect very nice picture with nice decoration of the whole room, it is just a table that I’m working on, so basically nothing much to show.. but I’m excited cos I can treat that room as my own scraproom!! πŸ˜€
Just remember, it is a very old house (more than 30 year), so don’t expect to see cement wall here.. πŸ˜€

You can see my Creative Memories cutter (the blue one) and also CM’s album which is being open up. The other colourful album is my magnetic album which I need to pull out all the photos from. I kept all my ribbons inside the little food container stack up at the back there. Maybe I’ll move my ribbons into a box later..
Here is another photo showing the little box that I got from Signature which is meant for putting medicine, I’ve used it to put all my little brads.

What is not showing here are those papers that I’ve, not many so far, not even an inch thick. Another things is the cutting made (covered by the CM album).
Those are my little things that I’m having now.. hope to build up the collection especially stamps.
