Adorable Today

We just celebrated Easter day and it was a great one. Fast forward a little, last Friday we went to our church drama called The Mirror and it was indeed a great reminder how Jesus has died on the cross for us. How He will brings us out through a storm! Because of Him, we can face tomorrow. Also kudos to my dad who acted as a Roman soldier too. Katelynn didn't recognise her Opa right away with the full costume and make-up. Lol.

So after church last Sunday, after putting Katelynn to nap, my hands were itching to create. Decided to go thru my scrapbook stash and saw the very beautiful "Styleboard" collection by Maggie Holmes for Crate Paper. I didn't manage to buy the papers but as a die cut/ephemera hoarder, I knew I had to grab the vellum & chipboard from the collection. They're too pretty to pass. So glad it took about/ less than an hour to complete. Without further a due, here's my layout using tons of vellum and chipboard...

Hope you like this layout as much as I do! Can't wait to create more using the Styleboard collection.

Oh yeah, before I sign off... I received a very HAPPY scrappy mail last week! Can't wait to share more details with y'all soon :)

You're Adorable

Hello, how have you been? I hope the Spring weather is keeping you well & happy! Today I'm sharing you a card with a combination of yellow & green. Perfect to welcome the spring weather! I wanted to challenge myself by not creating the base with patterned papers - just with die cuts, stickers & a frame.

For this card, I have also used the epoxy stickers packaging in between the frame to enhance my card.  Absolutely love the stars and the subtle color that does not scream for attention!

Hope you like my card today! See you again!

You Color My Life Beautiful

Hey again! This time around I am back with a non-DT layout. That showed that this mama had some free time on hand to create over the weekend! Definitely love moments like these! I am done with all April & some May assignments and that means I can have more time to play with other supplies.

I came across the freebie cut (you color my life beautiful) by Wilna Furstenberg last week at her Instagram feed. Been a HUGE fan of hers for a while now. So thankful that she shares her creativity with so many in this scrapbooking industry.

That xoxo colorful heart shaped die cut (painted with gelatos) was in my stash for a while and I thought it was perfect to use it along with the freebie cut! Just perfect together! This was a fast layout to create. I kept the design clean & simple with the intention to give focus to the "rainbow colors". Those chipboards, flair button & stickers are from the Dear Lizzy collection. The gold chipboard & wood veneers from Studio Calico.

You Are So Lovely

Hello again! Today, I am sharing this layout created for Lemon Owl that was inspired by "raindrops". It has been raining here in Malaysia & that's how I got the inspiration. All I did for this layout is to cut the raindrop shape on my Silhouette Cameo. I have also used the gelatos to colour the black & white patterned papers.

That Happy Memories

Hi there! I'm here to share with you my layout I created for the Theme Day Challenge - Sketch Day over at Lemon Owl. For this layout, I followed pretty closely to the sketch. I also added some other elements like the leaves die cut & the strips of paper at the top to enhance the layout. I have used a lot of the epoxy stickers too.

Tutorial : Gelatos

Hello there! I'm so honored to be able to guest for Lindsey's blog today! 

Today I would like to share with you a very simple tutorial on how to create "watercolor" effect by using gelatos. And of course, you can try this same technique with watercolors too. This technique creates a very subtle look to your project. Adds interest without "screaming" for attention. 

Supplies:
1 piece of craft sheet
1 bottle of water spray
1 die cut piece 
Faber Castell Gelatos colors

 photo 7_zps4685d0aa.jpg
First, you will need to gently color onto the craft sheet. Here I mixed the color blue & green.

Next, spray some water onto the gelatos.

Once you done with the water, use a brush to gently mix the colors to your preference.

Here is my die cut title that I'll be using.

Gently, "stamp" the cut to the gelatos. Be sure that you do not leave the cut onto the gelatos mixture for too long or it will be too wet & it might tear up.

Finally, leave it to dry before you proceed to your next step.

It should look like this once it is thoroughly dry. Absoultely love the "watercolor" effect!

 photo 1_zps9b0577e6.jpg
Here is a sample of my layout using the same technique. I used the rainbow colors for each of the cut.

I have also created another layout using the same technique for the background and also for the cut. The only difference is I did it in a bigger scale.  

Here are some close-ups:
