Maggie Holmes Design Team : Today

These days, I really love these colours: black & white! In fact, I'm beginning to notice that I am slowly drawn to black and white more & more each time. Haha. 

I absolutely adore the black white patterned papers that Maggie designed for her collections. Particularly, I really love the black & white diagonal stripe from the Flea Market collection and of course the famous black & white polkadots from the Styleboard collection.

I wanted to create mostly black & white for my layout with hint of pastel colours. So I chose to adhere half of the diagonal b&w stripe patterned paper onto a white cardstock. Then, I layer the rest of the patterned paper on top of each other. In between of the papers, I slotted frame, doily, vellum and stickers.

To give a personal touch to my layout, I painted those flowers with gelatos & cut them out. It was pretty fun & easy to paint. Give it a try the next time you create your layout! 

Thank you for stopping by today!

Maggie Holmes Design Team : Sweetheart

Lately, I really enjoyed looking at chalkboard craft and that sparked an idea to create with the American Crafts Chalkboard Paint. 

Here is the layout that I'll be sharing a simple step-by-step today! 

 photo Sweetheart_Layout1_zps3fceb068.jpg

First, use a wet wipe and dip into the gesso. Spread it all around the patterned paper.

Once the gesso is dried, used a new wet wipe and spread the chalkboard paint evenly by forming a square frame in the middle.

Next, sew all around the square frame. I sewed twice for mine.

After that, trim 1.5" of the patterned paper and adhere it onto a white cardstock. I have also decided to use the white and gold glitter tape to enhance the edges. All I did was to adhere the tapes under the patterned paper. 
 photo Sweetheart_Layout5_zps37f14805.jpg

I used some white mist and splatter the edges. It looked awesome on the chalkboard paint.

After all that, I used the polka dot black & white patterned paper to just paste it in the middle of the painted chalkboard paint. Be sure you trim it a little smaller so you can see the paint and the white thread. 

I absolutely love the gold rub-ons and decided to use them on the layout as well. TIP: Be sure to cut the words/images before you rub it onto the layout. You will avoid the rest of the images get "rub" onto the layout that way. And of course it is easier for you to plan your placement too!

Here is the completed layout again. I added a silhouette die-cut flower, vellum & chipboard shapes to complete my layout.

New Kit On The Scrapping Block!

It all started a few months back....

I was so surprised to receive an email from Natalia one fine day. She asked if I was interested to be part of the BLINKS OF LIFE Creative Team. I had to read the email again, just to be sure! LOL. I am such a fan of her work, especially her Project Life spreads. She designs beautiful paper products and stamps! And of course I said YES! What an honour!

 I would love to say a BIG thank you for having me to be part of this amazing journey and also a HUGE congrats for starting something so great in this scrapbooking industry! All the best!

Today, it is the launching day of these two beautiful kits. Presenting to you... 

Le Jardin 1


Summer Breeze 1


And today, I would love to share with you my layouts that I have created with Le JardinSummer Breeze kits. I had tons of fun making these layouts for this month. These kits are filled with beautiful papers, so well coordinated with the embellishments. The colours are just awesome. I absolutely love these kits!

 THE BEST DAY EVER :: This layout is created mainly with Le Jardin kit. Since Katelynn is born, I am very attracted to graphic lines & triangles. All I did was to cut the papers into diagonal lines and at the bottom I patched two of the papers together. And layered the triangles just behind the photo for a fun look to it! 'Give Love Where You Are' stamp has to be my favourite! So glad that the black, white & red + hint of gold work so well on this layout.

Supplies: Le Jardin

YOU ARE AMAZING :: This layout is all about my baby girl, Katelynn. She is one amazing miracle baby given to us by God! She has the sweetest smile and always melts our hearts (and a few others out there too!). A toddler that is full of beautiful personality! 

For this layout, I wanted to showcase the papers into vertical lines in the middle and kept the embellishment minimal. My Minds Eye - Mildred Alpha Word Stickers & My Minds Eye - Oh Happy Day 12x12" Chipboard are such great addition in the kit. 

Supplies: Le Jardin // Summer Breeze

2 LOVE YOU :: This man, I love him dearly! With his support, I can enjoy what I do right now. 

It all started with long strips of papers left in my pile, that's how I got the idea to piece them together. I love that it has the 'quilting' look to it. I so adore the My Mind's Eye O Happy Day 12x12 chipboard in the Le Jardin kit. When I saw the days of the week, I knew I have to use them on this layout.

Supplies: Le Jardin // Summer Breeze

TOGETHER :: I enjoy motherhood a lot. So I thought a layout of me and Katelynn would be awesome. For this layout, I picked out all the pink pretty papers & placed them in horizontal lines. Added stitches as well. Just how I love it, a girly layout just for us!

Supplies: Le Jardin // Summer Breeze

THE CUTE CHEEKY STAR :: Oh yes, she is one cute little cheeky gal! She always knows how to make her presence known. Just love her for that!

Supplies: Le Jardin // Summer Breeze

Le Jardin digital
For this layout, I have used the Digital Cut file on my layout. And my best 'friend', the Silhouette Cameo does the cutting for me. Those stars are just perfect for background designs & it is very versatile for a lot of theme as well.

Supplies:  Le Jardin Digital Collection

OH HAPPY DAY :: Katelynn received a bouquet of flowers from her dada last V-day and she was so amused by it. And of course I had to create a layout just to remember that special day! 

Yep, created graphic lines for this layout too! I created a little lift by adding foam tape at one of the patterned papers at each corner so I can slot the photos in between. Those flowers on the MME Oh Happy Day 12x12 chipboard are just so appropriate for the photos. They are perfect! Love!

Maggie Holmes Design Team : Hello Love

Hello again!! First of all, thank you so much for playing along with the 'Open Book' blog hop last week. So excited to see many of you came by my blog and left lovely comments on the new collection. I have to agree with all of you that it is indeed a beautiful collection especially with the touch of gold! So without further a due... the blog hop winner for Maggie Holmes 'Open Book' collection is ... 

Congrats Jasmine! Be sure to email me your mailing address to so we can mail you the goodies! 


Before I sign off, I have a layout to share created with the beautiful 'Styleboard' collection by Maggie Holmes. I absolutely adore these bright pieces in the photo overlays (hello & heart). And that's how my idea started to flow. I decided to use circle as the main design and so glad I did.  This layout is pretty simple to assemble. Stickers and photo overlays. Everything turned out the way I wanted it to be. Pops of bright colours on a white background!
