Jillibean Soup : Holly Berry Borscht

 Yay!! Christmas is coming soon! One of my favourite festive of the year! So glad to be able to create Christmas cards & layouts with the Jillibean Soup : Holly Berry Borscht collection! Absolutely love the bold colours :)

Last year, we didn't really capture a lot of Christmas photos so yeah, been using the same photos over & over again. Lol. But so happy to see different composition on my layouts using the same photo.

Yes, We Are Family!

Hello peeps! It has been a while I played with any sketch challenges. I absolutely adore the Elle's Studio Sketch Thursday challenge. Thought I should pull out the Sycamore Lane collection and play along! 

Here's my interpretation of the sketch. I did a little changes with the sketch by positioning the large triangles side by side instead of top & bottom.

 I really love this Sycamore Lane collection a lot! The designs + patterns & the colours are just so awesome! Adore the little aztec designs too. Perfect for Autumn, family theme and even you can use it for everyday theme.

Maggie Holmes Design Team : You Are Beautiful

I have always loved creating with shapes. This time, I wanted to play with squares. The Styleboard collection has pretty square frames and I decided to use them on my layout. 

I started with arranging the frames by overlapping on each other, starting from the top. Once I am happy with the frame positions, I started to add the chipboard & vellum shapes to beautify the frames.  Lastly I added the title and the standout butterfly shape on the left. Certainly love how they turned out! Just what I have imagined!

Maggie Holmes Design Team : Wedding Guest Book

Hello lovely people! Last Saturday, we attended a beautiful & intimate wedding of our dearest friends, Joel & Celeste Dass. I wanted to create something with a touch of handmade for their wedding. And thought the best gift was to present them a wedding guest book where they can treasure each memories of the guests who attended their very special day. 

This book binding was gifted to me by a dear friend. It has been sitting on my shelf for the longest time. And I thought I should make use of it and to gift it to this special couple. It looked pretty bare and I decided to 'jazz' it up with Maggie Holmes latest collection called Open Book. This collection is perfect for many themes and wedding is one of them! 

I filled a few pages with photos and embellishments. They looked lovely!

As you could see, I kept each page simple with doilies, floral ephemera & sticker.

Before I leave you, here's a photo of us and the newly married couple, Mr & Mrs Dass! It was also Katelynn's first time becoming a flower girl for a wedding. She did an amazing job. We are so proud of our baby girl!

Thank you for coming by again! Have a great week ahead :)

Maggie Holmes Design Team : Lovely

Hello again!! It's great to be back to share with you simple tips on how I created my layout. 

Firstly, I created my background on a white cardstock with gelatos and gold mist.
You may refer to my gelatos tutorial HERE.

Once it is dried, I punched 10 pieces of 2" circles. I folded them into half. Pasted them side by side. Next, I sewed the at the middle of the half-folded circles.

To create a little dimension, I adhered foam tape in between of the folds.

Then, I added vellum circles in the middle along with the glitter dots.

Here's the completed layout. I added photo and added a lot of vellum shapes and stickers to complete it. It was such a fun layout to create!

Maggie Holmes Design Team : Our Love Record

Hello again! It has been a while I last created a mini album & thought it's high time to create one! These anniversary photos were taken last 2 years. So glad that I finally printed them to create. Present to you, 'Our Love Record' mini album... 

 photo IMG_9957_zps8d6b075a.jpg

This mini is very simple to create. I used a few products from the Styleboard + a tiny bit from the Flea Market collection. Each page, you will see photo overlay, frames, chipboard, ephemera, stickers and vellum shapes. I used them repeatedly on each page, to create a cohesive look. The various size of papers, photos and embellishments of this album is what I love most. Once you are done, just gather all the pages together, punch a hole in the middle and bind it with a metal ring.

I didn't want to journal each page, so I decided to add one journal card in the middle of the album and wrote a short simple story.

For this & also the next page, I stuck the stickers onto a photo overlay. Added a piece of paper at the back of the overlay as a 'background paper'.
