Fly Like A Kite (Butterfly Crafts)

Ok, this is wayyyyy overdue. I have been crazy busy with beading that I have no time for anything else whatsoever. But I am taking this few minutes to update on Butterfly Crafts July challenge which went live on the 15th. The challenge is an ad inspiration challenge and here's the ad:

And here is my take:

My point of inspiration from the ad comes from the balloons. I recreated them by using these paper star balloons which I made. Aren't they cute? I used to make them when I was a little girl in school. I used to have jars of colourful stars and they were so cute and pretty.

So do hop over to Butterfly Crafts and join in the challenge. You'll have until mid August to create something and submit yours.

And on that note, I'm going to start on my beading again and I'll see you on the 1st. Buhbye!!

Guest Designer at Scrappin Studio (Pt.2)

Good morning.

I'm back again with the 2nd part of my guest designer work reveal with Scrappin Studio. Without further ado, here's another layout and a mini album.

2nd Layout - Beautiful Perth

It's a simple layout with not much techniques except for the masking.

2nd altered project - Pocket Tag Mini Album

In one of the kits that I received, there was a set of beautiful vintage 7Gypsies tags. So I decided to make pockets from the papers in the kit to slot in the tags.

I used the pages on the right to put single words to describe Nadiah and the pages on the left are filled with beautiful quotes.

Love those buttons. they're so pretty!!

I loved making this mini album and let me tell you, it didn't take that much time to do too!

So do hop over to Scrappin Studio BLOG to see what the DTs has come up with the kits. There are truly an inspirational team. Thank you again to Jaime for the invite to be Scrappin Studio's guest designer. It's been an honour.

Guest Designer at Scrappin Studio (Pt.1)

Hello everyone.

As the title suggests, this month I have been invited by the lovely Jaime Lee to be the Guest Designer over at Scrappin Studio. You may know that SS carries the awesome kits by Studio Calico. I was asked to do 4 projects which consists of 2 layouts and 2 altered projects. Please go over HERE to see my work and from there you can just follow the links to the store and get your own kits.

Today I'll be posting two of my work for Scrappin Studio, with some close-ups.

1st layout - So Sweet

1st altered project - 2000, An Altered Canvas Back

The back of a canvas frame makes a great picture frame. The photo was taken more than 10 years ago and hubby and I was sitting at the edge of a boat pier, dangling our feet down. But instead of sticking the photo inside the frame, I stuck it on the ledge of the frame. It makes it look like we're about to jump into the canvas frame.

Do come back tomorrow for the details of my other two projects.

I gotta run now and will see you again soon. Ta-ta!!

Jigsaw Puzzle Background Tutorial (Altered Project Inc)

Remember when I made this?

A lot of people have asked me to make a tutorial on how I made the background. Well, now you'll be able to make one yourself because I have made a tutorial over at Altered Project Inc.

I made a new jigsaw puzzle layout, but this time it's a mini layout. This is what I made:

Come and find out how I made the background HERE. Hope to see yours soon!! And while you're there, check out all the other awesome tutorial that other DTs have done.

Perth (Scrap-It-Lah)

Recently I went to Perth, Australia for the holidays. I haven't been out of the country in the last 10 years (Singapore doesn't count!) and I was very much looking forward to it. We all had a fantastic time and best of all, I brought back loads of pictures to scrap. Hahaa.. that's what we scrappers always think about, right?

As it is the beginning of July and that means it's a new challenge time over at Scrap-It-Lah. This month we have a Guest Designer coming up with the challenge. She is Issa Virtucio-Lucido. Issa is from the Philippines and a wonderful scrapper. The challenge that she came up with is:

1) at least 5 photos in one layout which means the layout must be multi-pics. There must be 5 visible photos in it
2) Photos must be a mixture of black and white and coloured photos please
3) There should be visible journalling on the layout.

So this is my take:

I decided to use 6 pictures. One for each day that I was there.

The kangaroo is actually a fridge magnet that I bought with the intention of using it in a layout :D.

Some old Making Memories ticket and tags that has been in my keeping for years. How glad am I to destash..

A little stamping to add some 'artistic' look to the layout. And another old Making Memories metal tab.

A mini Australian flag that was attached to Nadiah's little stuffed koala, which she removed because it kept poking her in the face. So I just nabbed it and use it in this layout. Hey... never throw anything, right?

So please hop over to SIL blog to see the details of the challenge and see the wonderful example of the other DTs' work. Come join us in this month's challenge!!

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!!
