According to Jessy.........

I'm a butterfly freak!! Me? A freak?? Seriously? Lol! I did a quick count and realized that I made a total of 60 butterfly cards to date. I'm not sure if that makes me a freak but I do love the nickname :) To proove that I'm indeed a freak, I made yet another butterfly :)

I confessed countless times that I love butterfly, the truth is I only like them on paper and not on clothing or accessories of any kind. Same goes with my favorite color. You know how much I love pink right? Believe me, I don't like wearing pink at all! Fushchia yes but absolutely not pink. It's funny how my cardmaking style is so different from my sense of clothing. I found some pictures online that could very well explain my fashion sense :)

You could say I'm a simple girl who loves neutral colors. My motto, the simple the better :) What about you? Does your cardmaking style reflects your fashion style or the total opposite just like me? 

Happy Friday!

CASE Study Challenge #12

Welcome back to another round of CASE Study challenge! It's Barbara Ander's last week and we truly enjoyed having her as our muse. Let's check out my take inspired by her.

Christmas is less than two months away and I'm not sure I'm ready to welcome the holiday. Don't get me wrong, I love Christmas but there are so much to do that I hope it come a bit later. Ayways, if you plan on making Christmas cards for your family and friends, do check out the blog for more inspirations by the DT.

Also, Carole is leaving the team and so am I. Next week will be my last week with CASE Study. And this week's sponsor is our very own Carole! Want to know the prize she is offering? You'll have to check out the blog and see it yourself :) Hope you play along with us!

I am loving butterfly. Stamp, die-cut, sticker or paper.....I love them all! I am never bored nor sick of them. In fact, I want more :) Can someone please tell me I'm not

Below is the card I made using my favourite stamp by Papertrey Ink! The lovely text pattern paper is from the Lost & Found collection by My Mind's Eye. I totally LOVED this collection! Who doesn't?

Ok...tell me you love butterfly too. Let us share our love together :)

Masculine card challenge at Smidapaper

How often do you create masculine cards? I think I can count with my five fingers, lol. I don't have a lot of male friends so I don't need that many masculine cards in my stash. But when I'm in need of one, I have problem creating it. Somehow my brain can't shake off the beautiful butterfly or that soft lovely color pink or that gorgeous ribbon in the jar :) You know guys don't appreciate girly stuff on their cards, right? What do I do? It took me a while to think and this is the result......

I have pink on a masculine card! Yay! But it does not look at all girly, right? I keep everything as simple as possible and I quite like it. If you are interested to find out how I created this card, you may check out my tutorial at Smidapaper blog. Besides the tutorial, I also challenge our readers (Malaysian only) to create a pink masculine card to stand a chance at winning a RM50 gift voucher from Smidapaper store!

"Pink is the new black as Savitri says it"!

CASE Study Challenge #10

Hello and welcome to another week of CASE Study Challenge! This month's muse is none other than the talented Barbara Anders! Please check out her blog to see more of her awesome work. I was greatly inspired her and I hope she inspires you as much as she did to me. Chupa.....yes, our very own Chupa is our sponsor this week! How generous of her for giving away one mini stamp set by There She Goes!

Let's check out my card, shall we?

A mix of Webster Pages, Maya Road and Jenni Bowlin here. I seriously love these stuff! The doily was cut out from the beautiful Webster Pages paper. The design is very pretty and intricate but it was covered by the turquoise bloom also by Webster Pages. Can you see the mini ticket peeking out from the doily? Ahhh....lovely! I hope you like today's card and we would love to see your take on the challenge!

Thanks for dropping by to say hi to me! You've made my day!

Hello Friend!

I have been very quiet lately. Not that I stop creating, just that I need to focus on something else....something big at the moment. In fact, I have been creating a lot lately but unfortunately I can't share any of them here. In case you wonder what I've been up to, let me assure you it's not about joining new DT or anything close. I will disclose when the time is right :)

But for now, I have a card to share. My mojo has been very nice to me this week. I managed to whip out three cards in less than two hours yesterday and I'm very happy about it. I normally took at least one hour or more to create a card and sometimes two hours even. This week is going to be a very productive week for me :)

The paper I used are from Lost & Found collection by My Mind's Eye. I've been thrilled when I first saw this new collection on their website. I secretly told myself I had to have them and my wish granted, thanks to Sheila for bringing them. Soon, these will be available in Smidapaper. There goes my pocket :) The big die cut butterly is from Jessy. She generously die cut some for me and I LOVE them so much. The letter and butterfly stickers are by Jenni Bowlin and the ticket is by Maya Road, all of them are gifts from Sheila.

That's about all. I hope you come back again tomorrow as I have another CASE Study Challenge card to share. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

*cough*cough*'s getting dusty here. i'm so sorry for being MIA for a week! i have no cards to share right now but i do have a beautiful picture of my crafty friends that took during our grathering.

when i was in KL for four days, i had a great time with Jessy, Eric and their two adorable cats! i also had the chance to meet up with my crafty friends Sharm, Shirl and Evelin. they are really really sweet people. although i only met them for the first time but it feels like we've known each other forever. imagine the two hours chat we had! luckily, the restaurant staff did not chase us out for hogging the place :) the gals are so sweet as each of them prepared some beautiful RAK for me. i am thankful! Annie was out of town and i hope to meet her next time.

i was also introduced to Michelle for the first time by Jessy. this lady is full of wit and her jokes make me almost laugh my head off! it was indeed a pleasure to meet such an awesome group of friends! i was deeply thankful to both Jessy and her husband for being such gracious host to me. i was truly pampered by Jessy during my four days stay with her. i also enjoyed our late night crafting + chatting. crafting is really FUN when you have a great company especially with talented crafter like my Jessy babe :) THANKS BABE!
