Here's layout of darling daughter. I printed the picture in black and white and pick out the colours for the layout accordingly.

I used chipboard alphabets to spell out her name. First I painted the letters "n", "d" and "a" with white acrylic paint and inked the letters "a", "i" and "h" with Tsukineko Brilliance: Lightning Black. Then I stamped images on the letters to emboss. Gold for the lightning black and silver for the white.


I'm going to start a travelling album. I've already done a couple and last week I finished another one. This is a 2 page layout which I did of my trip to Cyprus in 1995.

Nadiah's Little Scrapbook Album

Whenever I sit down to scrap, my daughter would come and sit next to me so that she could "help". Everyday, she would take out the Zoo Album to add more embellishment or to pick out some of the stickers on the pages. I got tired of always having to grab the book from her that I decided to make an album just for her to do with whatever she wanted.

I first got her her own embellishment box with buttons of every colour and some mosaic tiles etc. I also got her a few sheets of animal stickers. And lastly, I made a 4x4 mini album where she can stick her owm pictures and embellishments.

Tooth-less Smile

I caught the perfect picture of Nadiah giving a big smile after she lost her tooth. What an adorable picture of her lying on the grass. So I decided to scrap a layout.

For the first time I tried out sewing on a layout. It was great fun. Maybe next time I can try stitching two papers together. I also tried out my new chalk set by dabbing along the outer edges of the cardstock. Chalks can be great fun too...

Chipboard inked and stamped with image


My first try at stitching on the letter "L". As you can see I made a muck out of it. That suttle tone of red is the chalk effect. I should have used orangey colour but the chalk pallet set did not come with orange.

"Field" Day

I love this picture of Nadiah and Amir rolling on the grass laughing their heart out. I don't think they actually know what they were laughing about but what a great moment to catch on film.

For this layout, I used my new Basic Grey Chipboard Alphas for "F" and "Y". I painted the blue with acrylic paint and stamped the orangey image. They look quite stunning but when I scanned, the colour was a little bit off. But am quite happy with the end result.

Magnificent Four

This is a layout I made for a challenge I introduced on Lovescrap forum. The challenge is to NOT use any patterned papers. Here's my end result

I divided the white cardstock into four sections. Stick two dark brown cardstock on upper left and lower right corners and stamp and emboss a flower image in them. The gold of the emboss just jumped right off the page. Stunning!!

Then I took another piece of lighter brown cardstock and distress a little. Tear one side of it and punched holes along another side to make it look like I just ripped the paper out of a spiral bound notepad. It looked great. I love this layout!!

G's Birthday Card

G's 17th birthday was last Wednesday so I decided to make a card for him myself. Nothing too fancy, just using the tools that I've got.
