Currently Creative : Fabric DIY

I was invited by the very talented Kellie Winnell to play along in her Currently Creative series. What a fun way to see what is everyone creating :) Such a brilliant idea I must say! 

Yesterday, I decided to sew a maxi skirt for Katelynn. Couldn't resist the polkadot japanese cotton I have in my fabric stash! Seriously... nothing fancy at all! Just a long skirt for her to feel 'princess-y'. 

  It has been a long while I sewed a skirt for Katelynn. I think the last was last year's Christmas. I sewed chevron Christmas skirts for us both! Still loving them but Katelynn can't fit into hers anymore. For this skirt, I followed the MADE tutorial HERE

I must say I'm pretty proud that I could whipped out a skirt besides using the sewing machine to stitch on my scrapbook layouts. Lol. 

Presenting to you... her maxi skirt :P

Just couldn't resist to take a shot of her yesterday night, hence the poor quality photo! So glad that she loved it. The minute I put it on her, she went to the mirror & smiled! Melted my heart <3 p="">

 This morning, I decided to take another shot of her with her fur-bro, Tobes! She is just too cute!

Oh yeah, I have been working on a little something too. A lil freebie... so look out for it :)

Thanks for swinging by again! So much love to all of you!

Blinks Of Life : Life Story Week 30-35

Hey hey! I'm back to reveal another 3 more Life Story spread. Created these spreads with the Blinks of Life Amaretto Life Story kit

I really enjoyed using the Amaretto kit with the printables & cut files this time round. Love that the colours of the printables & the cut files matched very well together. And of course I am so glad that I have completed another 5 weeks of life story / project life pages just by using these awesome products. Be sure that you swing by Blinks of Life for more info.

For this week, I wanted to play with the color pink with the hint of red! So glad that there are quite a number of pink elements for me to put together. The brush script die cut at the top definitely steal the show for this spread :)

I absolutely adore the pastel colours that you can find in the Crate Paper journaling cards. Another perfect colour combo for me!

The Amaretto Journaling cards & Word Bundle cut files work very well for this week. I love the kraft colour paired with the very soft & gentle colours that you can find on each card.

Blinks Of Life : Amaretto Life Story Kit

Hi again! It's that time of the month to share with you what I have created for Blinks of Life. For this month, we have one kit called Amaretto Life Story kit

I absolutely adore yellow and thought it will be awesome to play round with the yellow + gold + kraft . The colours went pretty well together. For some cards & embellishments, they are from the previous kits called Sugar Spice  & Cinnamon Roll. Love how all 3 kits can work so good together!

For my Life Story spreads, I have paired Amaretto kit with printables & cut files too. They worked very well together against the bright cards from Notes & Things journaling cards.

Blinks Of Life : Life Story Week 21-24

Hello!! Today I would like to share with you my Life Story spread for Week 21 up to 24 using the Sugar Spice & Cinnamon Roll kits. 

For these weeks, I chose to use the colour yellow and gold. Absolutely adore these colour combinations. A little colour coordination will make your spread looks clean and organised. For the rest of the cards, I kept my embellished them in clean & simple design. It’s easy to the eyes.

I just couldn’t throw the Blinks of Life (the red bow) packaging away, so I thought it will be fun to include it into one of my card. It looks pretty, rite?


Let's move on to Life Story Spread of Week 23 & 24.
Jessy Christopher Blinks of Life Scrapbook Kit 1
Love that the Sugar & Spice and Cinnamon Roll kits have many colour combinations that you can play with. For these weeks, I went with the classic dramatic colours – black & red. And a little hint of yellow + orange to bring out these bold colours. And again I kept the embellishments minimal for this spread.

Maggie Holmes Design Team : Halloween Cards

Hello again! Today I would like to share with you 4 Halloween cards that I created. The DTs were given some very fun Halloween products from the American Crafts collection called Full Moon. The bits & pieces paired so well with Maggie Holmes Styleboard collection! I'm not the best person to create Halloween theme but the combination of these two collections made the creating process easy!

I kept the cards simple but they look classy & fun! One of my fav thing to do is to keep the cards 'uniform' so that I don't have to spend too much time on each card. This way I can create more cards in lesser time.

Maggie Holmes Design Team : Love You This Much

Hello again! Today I am going to share with you on how you can create your own background by using these cute sticky pads. 

First, position each sticky pads to fill up at least half the cardstock. Basically you start positioning them right at the middle and slowly filling the gap at the sides. If the pad is long for the edge, all you have to do is to trim it to fit.

Then you will cover the sticky pads with a vellum. I wanted to achieve a soft & subtle look for the background and the vellum overlay accomplishes this! Next, I splattered gold & white mist onto the layout.

Once the mist is dried, embellish the layout with photo, vellum, ephemera & chipboard shapes. And you are done!
