Not a fan of gloomy weather........

Hello crafty friends! Happy Monday to you! The weather has been gloomy these days and I really miss the sunshine. I don't know about you but weather does affect my mood. Sunny day = happy & gloomy day = sad. Today, I am not too happy with the weather so I thought I would come here to post a card. It makes feel a little bit better :)

Remembered the layout I did for my bestie last week? I actually made a card to go with the layout but didn't take picture of it so my bestie took for me. I love how soft and shabby this card was. You can't see it clearly but I misted the cardstock and love the hint of shimmer on my card. I distressed the edges to make it look aged. I remembered how my friends used to ask me if I burn the paper with incense stick because that's what we used to do back in the school days, lol :) Ok, I have one last thing to say before I go...........Emma Shoppe, I LOVE YOU!!!!!

Hello friends! I met my girl friends for dinner yesterday and we had a super great time. Great food, great view and great friends! My bestie celebrated her birthday early this month and I made her a layout using the new Emma Shop papers and stickers by Crate Paper. I hardly work with bold colors and floral patterns but somehow Emma Shop captured my heart. It's love at first sight :)

Home Sweet Home

Hello friends, this is going to be a very quick post but I wanted to share a card I made using the cutest collection by Crate Paper called 'Neighborhood'.

On this card, I combined the borders and phrase stickers as well as the accent cuts to create a scene. This card came pretty quickly and I am happy with the result. All materials are available at Smidapaper.

Hope you have a great day!

Framed Layout + Pinterest

Hello friends, I made this for a friend last week using lots of MME's stuff :) You know by now how much I love MME, right? I am keeping the layout simple and not heavily embellish but yet special. I also choose to work with a softer palette to match with the white frame from Ikea. (photo courtesy of Yiling)

On another fun note, have you heard of Pinterest? It is a new site where people get to share all sorts of stuff. I heard about it a month ago but didn't pay much attention to it, not until two weeks ago. You need an invite to start pinning, so let me know if you need one :) You can find me here.

Stella and Rose continues......

Dear Stella and Rose again, I am so madly in LOVE with you! Although, you made me stayed up very late last night and practically made me looked like a walking dead this morning but I loved you anyway! Always and forever! *big grin* :))

I made another layout and it's my 5th layout to date. Before this I only like to do cards but now I find it quite enjoyable to scrapbook as well. I get to decorate my photo with pretty stuff and it makes me happy. This photo was taken last year with my sis-in-law who was also my ex-colleague. We had work together for almost 10 years in the same company and it was a blessing to have her as my sis-in-law (I would say she's one of the best SIL in the world). She may not know this but she taught me how to be more generous and not asking for anything in return. We may have had disagreements and arguments before but she's the forgiving type so we never hold any grudge against each other. Ann, if you are reading this.....I just want to tell you that I adore you very much and thanks for everything that you've done for me. Please know that I will always be there for you whenever you needed ya.

Up next is a card I made with the beautiful paper from Stella and Rose. The colors and patterns are so inspiring that it only took me a while to finish the card. My Mind's Eye is having a blog challenge right now so I am entering both my layout and card. Wish me luck! The wide range of Stella and Rose collection are available at Smidapaper now. Come and check it out!

P/S: Thanks for all your lovely comments, my friends! You truly made my day! Please hang in there with me as I made my way to your blog soon :) Hugs!

Stella and Rose.........

Dear Stella and Rose, I am so madly in LOVE with you! Although, you burnt a big hole in my pocket and probably caused me to eat instant noodle until my next paycheck but I loved you anyway! And I am happy to take you home with me *big grin* :))

You can get all these and much more from Smidapaper. We are bringing you lots of new goodies this week so be sure to visit us if you are in Penang :)

Meanwhile, I have a card to share but I am keeping this post short because you know my new goodies are calling out to me from my craft room :)

Enjoy your day!

Who says boy can't craft?

Those who think that boys can't craft were so wrong. I've had a few guys attended my class already and this particular card was from my previous Valentine's Class. I kept the design simple because I don't want to scare the dudes away :) It took them more than an hour to complete the card but I truly admire their effort just because they want to make their girl happy. This proves that love can make you do anything.....even if it's out of the norm. I still wish that my hubby would someday make me a card.......I guess I'll have to wait a little longer :)
