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!
Thanks again for swinging by and I hope you enjoyed these spreads! Till we meet again.

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 two beautiful kits.
The main kit is known as Sugar & Spice.
And the embellishment kit is called Cinnamon Roll.
For these 2 kits, I decided to create Project Life / Life Story spreads. You'll be seeing lots of spreads this month :) Perfect excuse to catch up where I'm left at!
At the early of the year, I decided that I should create two weeks in one full spread. This way I will spend less time on my spreads and I can still create all the important memories each time. This works very well for me and I have pretty happy about that!
I absolutely love the Collectapp a lot. It made my life so easy. I keep tracked all my photos and simple journaling daily in this app. You should try too!
Sharing another spread with you. Week 16 & 17 is very dear to me because it was my dad's birthday. Katelynn is introduced to him as 'Opa' for grandpa as we have Dutch descendant. For now, she could say 'Pa...pa'. I'm sure in no time she can call him 'Opa'.
I really love to keep my spreads in a clean & simple design. As a SAHM & having a clingy toddler, I don't get too much time on hand during crafty time so I will try to create as fast as possible. So this clean & simple style works pretty well for me!
Lastly, be sure to check out Sugar & Spice and Cinnamon Roll kits in the store! And of course all the wonderful inspirations at the gallery. We have talented guest designers joining us this month!
I'll share 2 more spreads soon. Be sure to check back! Thanks for coming by!

Today I have 2 layouts to share with you. These layouts are created with the new Jillibean Soup collection.
I absolutely love this layout especially the precious photo of my baby girl and my hubby! These two are inseparable... seriously! For this layout, I created with the Mixed The Media + Soup Staples III.
I used the Owloween collection on this layout that was meant for Halloween! A little challenge for myself... to use a themed layout on an everyday theme! What do you think?
Thanks for swinging by again!

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!
