First post for 2017!

Here I am again, struggling to keep up with life. Now stepping into the month of July, only meant that 6 months just flew by. Every single weekend I yearn to have more time to be able to sit by my craftspace and just get my fingers dirty. Well, looking at the positive side of things, I am sitting here writing this blogpost today meant, yeay! I manage to create something this weekend.

So without further adieu, I would like to share 2 layouts I made for my sister who recently got hitched. :) It was such a beautiful wedding. I truly wish them all the happiness in the world.

I finally used my Crate Paper stash which I had been hoarding for some time now. Aren't the Flower accents & Vellum sentiments so very pretty! I also recently bought a Modelling Paste from Teresa Collins and it was so much fun playing with it. What have I been missing out for so long! It definitely help create texture to the layout. Here I created a brick wall mask using my silhouette and wala! This is the out come.

 I also did some splatters with gelato from Faber Castell and Color Shine from Heidi Swapp. Here I used Gold & Mint Green Color Shine to create some splatters.

And of course the final outcome...

Next up, I created a rather monochromatic layout with only hues of blue, white and black. All materials from Felicity Jane. Lots of fussy cutting from one of the Patterned paper from London Kit & Ombre background paper was from Happy Day (Suse Fish) kit.

So There you go. I don't know if there is anyone still reading my blog :) but I hope if you are reading this, you enjoyed my work and it helps inspire you to create something too! Thank you for dropping by. - Yours Truly.

Jot Magazine - November Moodboard 2016

I am still on cloud 9 on the positive response I received for my previous layout. If you enjoy crafting, you would understand that sometimes without inspiration and mojo, it is very hard to create. I love to look for inspirations which motivates me to create. Yesterday, I found a really interesting mood board inspiration from Jot Magazine. It is interesting because I have never worked with such colour hues before. So, I decided to give it a go. It was really a challenge, but after truly playing with it, I really love how it turns out.

Here is the mood board.

I did a card and a layout. Here my take :
It is hard to photograph a rather white and bright coloured background... I bought some gelatos from Faber Castell a while back (a year or so), I finally had the chance to play with it and I think I am officially HOOKED. It was so fun and easy... I also did some fussy cutting for the feather. Paper was from Felicity Jane. Finally, a simple title rub ons from Crate Paper - Note & Things. It is a really plain and simple layout... 

Who still uses stickles? Eek, I used them on hand cut feathers and it was so pretty! 
Shimmer & shine. Stamped sentiments from Felicity Jane :)

Dance in the Rain

Have you ever felt that way, when you felt all alone in a very big and complex world? that every step you take seems so heavy you can't move forward? Yet, we try to keep these sadness all bottled up and convince ourselves to smile and move forward.

This is what inspired my next layout. To remind myself to constantly laugh and smile and be happy... to dance even though it rains. Life maybe a difficult journey, but I have learnt to stand up each time I fall. Love this picture of my son and I. He is the reason I keep fighting on.

Materials used :
Chloe Kit from Felicity Jane.

Oh! Do check out their Christmas Kit! It's absolutely gorgeous... Do grab them before it gets sold out.

Happy World Cardmaking Day! Card making is something close to my heart as it is what brought be closer to the scrapbooking world. So, I know that it is only the beginning of October but I couldn't wait to create some Christmas Cards!! Yes... Christmas.

They are so versatile... Another Favourite is sequins from Felicity Jane Kits... :) Hope you like them ! Thank you for dropping by...

Oh Lemons!

First Layout since I got home. These photos of my son came up on my feed few days ago and i knew I had to scrap them as they are my favourite photos of him growing up. His first time tasting a lemon!

Using only Materials from Felicity Jane Kits. Playing with papers and layering them was so much fun! With very minimal embellishments, this is what I created... Simple. Love the Puffy Alphas from Pink Fresh which came with one of the kits.


Frequent Travels

Well, of late, I have been travelling a lot for work. This time around I was stationed in Berlin.
I actually brought over some scrapbooking supplies (from my Felicity Jane Kits) along with me *grin*...

I am still in progress of completing the "travel book" I made. Fingers crossed, hopefully after being home and settling down I will be able to start again. While travelling I took sometime also just to do some road tripping from Berlin > Krakow > Vienna > Munich before flying home. Some pictures from my trip...

A weekend with Friends in Krakow

 Road Tripping to Vienna 
 A Photo with a dear Friend in Vienna

Next stop, I head on to Munich on my own... Was happy that I made it even though I had a minor accident and hurt my legs badly getting here. I didn't give up but journeyed on and made my last stop to Munich before heading home.
