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.

Recently, I am really loving the minimalist trend... So I am keeping my card designs simple and clean this time... I just love Kellie Winnel's christmas stamps... Don't you love them? 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.

Happy Life - Felicity Jane Kit

Hi, I am back. 3rd post for 2016. I am on a roll... Here I created a layout with a mix of Felicity Jane's May & April kits & the frame is from one of my favorite manufacturers, Crate Paper. Only after I finished the layout that I only realised that this picture of my son was coincidentally very similar to myself in Krakow from the previous layout I made. :D

For this layout, I used some printables from Felicity Jane which comes with the kit subscription. I love the heart that says "love". Note-to-self kit also came with Heidi Swap's Color Shine in Gold... which was used for the ink splatters. Pattern Papers are mainly from both Chloe & Note To Self kits.

Kits I used:

First layout of 2016 - NSD Sketch

Finally, after a year of hiatus, I gathered my courage to start scrapbooking again. I decided to take the plunge and subscribed to Felicity Jane scrapbooking kits. It was the best decision thus far. I now look forward to receiving a kit each month and playing with them. This is actually my first time subscribing to a kit club. I am still struggling a bit to get my mojo back but here is my take for a NSD challenge sketch by our talented Jessy Christopher :)

I love love love the soft tone of this layout and yet some bold statements with black and white patterned papers. I am still very much in love with gold accents and butterfly!

2015 Travels.

Wow, I can't imagine, I'm finally blogging again. A quick recap of 2015, I started working again, which explains my absence. I was fortunate to have the chance to travel to Europe for the first time for business trip.
I fell in love with places I hardly knew and had great adventures meeting new people and making new friends. It was a fresh start for me after having a rough year.

First stop was beautiful Krakow, Poland. A place so unfamiliar to me yet, I had such a good time with new friends from Poland.

..... Zobaczylam to przepiekne miejsce...... (and I saw this beautiful place...)

My next stop was Helsinki. It was a totally different experience, having to know how it feels like to have only few hours of night time and a whole lot of daylight. It was indeed a beautiful city.

and last but not least, Guten Tag, Berlin Germany :) I called it the city of grafitti. My first impression was as if everyone in Berlin, has the gift to make art just with some cans of spray paint.  It is a beautiful place nonetheless. Well that briefly sums up my journey last year. Looking forward to share more soon...
