Layout : Sweet

I did a really simple layout for this precious photo of my DH and my son. Hearts are made from vellum. I used a blending tool/sponge with Distress Ink (Tattered Rose) & Tattered angel Glimmer Mist (Mel's dinner). For the mist, I sprayed it on a palette, and a few drops of water to lighten it. Just dip a bit of colour  & blend both colours over the vellum to create a sweet pink texture... (** if you dip too much, it might be too wet and vellum will start to curl during the process) 
I hand cut out all the hearts in different sizes. Splattered some gold mist, adhere the vellum & photo & Wala!

Free Printables for Mother's Day (Updated)

This is my first time designing project life cards. I was playing with my DH's new toy the 53Pencil and started scribbling. Played with photoshop and came out with some of this. Since mother's day is just around the corner, I did some Mother's Day quote cards. Just click to enlarge image, then right click and "Save image as" to save to your PC, then print on A4 sized paper. Hope you will like it. Will design some for daddy, too :)

*** Sorry updated the file as the measurement of the first file was not accurate. >.< so sorry. Hiccups on my first free printables... pls forgive me. Hope this works for you. Let me know if you have any feedback. Thanks! ***

Layout with Polaroid frames.

I have kept these polaroid frames for quite sometime now... :D I was intending to hoard them actually, but I figured, argh, I should use them, it will be wasted to just chuck them aside. Created a layout of my trip to Sabah during my birthday last year. Using mostly embellishment from Crate Paper, The Pier collection. I might have sprinkled too much mist (the one at the bottom was accidental) >.< 


I love to create dimensions with pop up dots for most of my layout. For this layout I layered the frames with different "heights" with pop dots. Love the dimension it created. I also mat the "Fun" wood veneer from Freckled fawn behind the frame. It fits nicely behind the polaroid frame... :)

Workspace Wednesday

My dear friend, Sharon, blogged about her beautiful space. She's doing such a great job documenting about her space... So envy of those who have really clean & neat space. My craft room is often in a mess! @.@ I spend almost two weekends to clean up starting from a smaller area and working my way through.


The mess was intense. (keeping it real) Everything was everywhere and this was just the beginning of me organising my stuff. Rearranging everything from scratch.

I cut out all the phrases from Crate Paper's accent paper and stick them to transparency paper. That way I can use them like stickers afterwards, and they are all in one place.

Finally, I have a small area which is no longer an eyesore.

Hopefully, it will stay this way for a while.

Documenting February & March

This time around I'm using a different layout for my spreads. These are a few of my favourite pocket design as well.

Some journalling on the pictures for a change.

A little bit of this and that on this spread, less journalling.

The last spread for February... Yeay! 
P.S. : The sweet lil baby is Cindy's newborn, Annabelle. She's finally here.

Kicking off March by highlighting my recent Taiwan trip. I really wanted the trip to be summarised in a glance, a whole 9 days would be too much, hence, I decided to use the square pockets and place the pictures by days. I have also pre-labeled the pictures before printing as well, that way I know where the picture was taken on which day. :) Nothing fancy, just simple titles.


There are too many street food in Taiwan. I did the same layout for street food as well. I love how they turned out and how I can see everything in a spread.

I'm Back!

After a week long break, I'm back and home. Will blog about my trip to Taiwan soon. Mummy is finally home as well. After changing from hospital to hospital, and more than 2 weeks in the hospital, we finally found a good doctor who was able to root cause and make things better.

Time to catch up on Project Life. I'm almost a month behind! O.O I manage to finish up till mid feb as of now... Here's my lil "assistant" while I was taking pictures of my PL.


Well here goes, January - Page 5, 6 & 7.... Oh yes! I have 7 pages just for January! What an eventful month...


As we step into February, also another eventful month... :)




More to come as I'm determined to catch up till March! :)

Somedays...

I must admit that I'm never good at handling emotions & difficult choices. When I'm stuck in crossroads, I tend to shut everything & everyone out, to be in my own zone, to feel silence just being away from people & feel so much better. Yet, when doing so, sometimes, people get hurt as they don't understand what I'm going thru & they will keep going on about how they are hurt... I guess, that's how life is... Just gotta breathe, learn to let go and keep moving on... May your days be better than mine.

Found this song which has some very meaningful lyrics...
