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!

Felicity Jane : Love This Story & Smile, Be Happy

Hello again! As promised, I am back with another 2 more projects for Felicity Jane

I've always love to play with shapes. Triangles are one of my fav! In fact, triangles are one of the most used shape in my projects :) I absolutely adore the floral patterned paper in the kit. It matches very well with the black + white papers. Another fav thing I enjoy doing is to sew on my projects. It gives a very nice texture & it is something that is not very time consuming!

For my next project, I decided to go with an altered frame. I love how all the bright & bold colours go so well with a classy looking frame! Those wood veneers are just so easy to use on projects as well. 

This frame is a perfect reminder for me to always keep calm, smile & be happy whatever circumstances I face. Being a SAHM with an active + clingy toddler can be very challenging when you have work + assignment to achieve each day. But above all, I am thankful to God for all the wonderful opportunities that are flowing into my life each time. Most importantly, I got to spend a lot of time with my daughter, that matters!

Thank you once again for your time! Hope you like the projects.

Felicity Jane : Love You Everyday

Hello again. I would love to share this layout with you on my blog today. Last month, my Instagram friend, Jeana Goodwin who is also the coordinator of Silhouette team launched her new product line called Felicity Jane. Her products are sold as a kit each month where you can subscribe them. How fun is that?!

Jeana contacted me if I would like to create with her first kit named 'Charlotte'. I said YES, simply because her products are just too beautiful to resist! The colours are so bright-fun-so in trend. The embellishments are just too cute. The stamp set is so adorable. So many goodness in a kit. I can relate to her products pretty well! I'm a sucker for black & white + pops of colours. Just divine!

Today I will be sharing my first project with you...

I wanted to showcase all the bright & bold colours on my layout. So I decided to die cut the butterflies by using my Silhouette Cameo. Absolutely love the outcome, exactly what I have in mind! The butterflies look pretty good together, rite?  

Be sure you visit the Felicity Jane website today, for all of the info. 
Come back tomorrow, I will reveal 2 more projects :)

Happy crafting!

Fun venture with APOCD!

The word is out! I have something fun to share with you. Raquel, owner of APOCD (A Piece of Cake Designs) invited me to be one of her digital designer in her new digital store.  I was a little nervous at first but after much thought & with Eric's support, I said YES to her! 

Yup, I'll be designing digital cut files & stamp brushes! You can use these designs on your scrapbook layouts / projects, Project Life, cards or even on digital scrapbooking. All you need is a die cutting machine. You can download them & instantly play with these cut files once you purchase these files at the digital store! How awesome is that?!

Be sure to check out the APOCD digital store in the middle of October 2014. 

Before I leave, allow me to share with you my newly-designed logo. Hope you like it!

Thanks for coming by again. Have a lovely weekend!

Blinks of Life : Life Story (Week 18-20)

Hey again! I'm back to share with you another 2 spreads of Project life / Life Story that I created with Blinks of Life - Sugar & Spice and Cinnamon Roll kits.

This particular week at Penang was a fun one. We visited scrapbook friends and our best friend's family too. This time around we chose to stay out at boutique inns. We absolutely fell in love with the interior design - mixed of new & old furnitures. Our lovely friends brought us to many yummy restaurants & cafes for food. Penang is one of the heritage places you should visit. You'll love it!

May is also a very special month because of Mother's Day. It's my second time celebrating Mother's Day this year. It was indeed special as I got to celebrate it with my maternal grandma as well.

I truly enjoy recording all these little snippets of our lives so that Katelynn can learn more about us & herself when she grows up. These life stories will definitely add values to her life!
