Have used Making Memories journal pad, Kaiser roller stamp, feathers, flowers and buttons from Color Me Daisy March kit.
Sorry for the glare and maybe a bit gloomy photos which by the way taken inside my office.
Did the layout above on Sunday night, just had to use those stuff that I got from Scrap-n-Crop recently. Aren’t you just love those essential 5 flowers? I love them! And Val, I’ve used those swirls stamps! *Grin* Oh.. and the MM journal pack, they are just so easy to use.
This is another layout done with Color Me Daisy February monthly kit. The only thing not from the kit is the journal paper from MM. Uh.. and I did a bit of sewing on these two layout in the middle of the night!
I was actually thinking to use the song title “I love your smile” on my 2nd layout…
Buoy I’m so glad I’m home.
How many days has past? Hmm.. I have had a tiring trip, not one but two. I went to Malacca and Kuala Lumpur from Monday till Wednesday, then to Kudat and Banggi Island from Thursday till today. First one is 100% learning trip, as for the 2nd, it is more like a community service trip after our meeting in Kudat. Will share more in my other site – Glad2bhere.
As for now, I wanted so much to share what I’ve done before going for the Malacca trip and on Wednesday night, but I forgot my camera’s USB cable. I’ve actually took some time to visit Valerie over in Scrap-n-crop, got myself some scrapbook stuff from her store. So glad to have finally met her face to face! Thanks for her sister Penny, I get to browse the shop earlier before Val arrived from work.
There were just too many beautiful things in there, I have to remind myself not to get any pattern paper, I’ll just have to wait for my monthly kit from Color Me Daisy and Scrapbook Deals 4 you. Still I’ve got some “essential” things like glue dot, chalk marker and stamp set.
While we were over in Kuala Lumpur, I didn’t do much shopping. There were still some sales going on, lots of Girls’ clothing, boys’ clothing and for adults too. But I wasn’t into getting any clothes for now, so I’ve just got myself some undies. Will do the shopping during my next trip to China if possible.
Signing off now, will update again next week.
Phew.. I’m discovering more and more new sites about scrapbooking, stores and online challenges sites! Can I really take these all in? There are so much going on. There are weekly challenges which shown very interesting layout and sketches, or scheme.
These are a few sites that I discovered today by some other people’s references:
All these sites offer either of these: gallery, shop, forum with challenges, blog with updates. Need to keep this list with me in case I forgot, or probably I’ll put them up on my site bar.
Did a lantern by corrugated board last night with the instructions from Scrappin Kids‘ online tutorial. Absolutely thankful for that, else I won’t have learn how to do the lantern show below. I don’t like the cutting part though ‘cos I’m using raw corrugated board from a big box and it is thick! I love the embellishment part where I get to decorate it as how I like. I’ve used part of the kits from ColorMeDaisy for this.
This is how it looks like when hang up:
I’ve only used 4 photos for this project, two of them which I wasn’t sure where to put in my album and two are newly taken during Chinese New Year. I think I’m going to use the picture above again for a layout, will see.
Didn’t use much embellishment on this project. I’ve just used up 2 pattern paper, some rub-on, some transparent tag from HOTP, flowers from Prima, eyelet from Making Memories and ribbon from Stamper corner.
I can’t update this post as what I wanted, such as putting up my project 365 and those cards and pages that I would love to do. I’m not in my usual place now where I can have access to my scraproom. This PC that I’m using has just got a new hard-disk with the minimal software.
Oh well, let me just enjoy my holiday now and will update this blog after this week.
Gong Xi Fa Cai!!
Following a sketch in 2peas – A year in cards classes, I came up with these:
On layout, after seeing how Devos_mummy did a page for Happy Hour over in SoCalScrap, I came up with these:
The page below is one that I tried using color and B&W photos together. I don’t want to make it too fancy too, so came up with this clean photo blocking page.
Products used: Mixture of things from Scenic Route, Maya Road, American Craft, MaxMillan, Bazzill Basic, Daisy D’s, My mind’s eyes and of course my Fiskar puncher and Marvy shape punches.
Jornal: Cal can do his own homework but with a bit of push sometimes. I’m happy with his hand writting. I have got ready the computer table for him to do his homework and he likes it there with the good lighting and also of course the view of TV conveniently.
Jornal: Bug lover. Cal doesn’t fred a bit in seeing this little creature. First thing he wanted to show me when I got home and he brings this bug wherever he goes that night and left it on the table when he got to sleep with some bread and water!
Note: two photos for the day but only showing one here.
Journal: 年糕 making day. Grandma and grandpa got busy preparing the dough and the fireplace to steam the new year cake. This was the first time the boys saw the whole process in making the 年糕 and they got excited in helping to put fire on the stove too.
