Becoming A Parent ♥

I am always the kind of person who seek inspiration in colors and when I saw these beautiful paper by MME, I fall head over heel in ♥ with them! They were from the Nostalgia collection. Then I visited Smidapaper over the weekend and when Sheila showed me the Sweetest Thing collection, I almost faint! I was beaming with excitement and almost wanted to buy everything on the table. I did a reality check and managed to control myself a bit. Yeah, just a Without wasting any time, I put myself to work and this is what I came up with.

Love You More ♥

This page came together pretty quickly and I am pleased with the result. The faux stitched heart was a tad different from what I had imagined in my head but still I love it. I have been hoarding the patterned paper by Crate Paper for a while now and decided it was time to put it in good use. and more staple on my page. Call me the staple!

Splish Splash Time

Just last month, Abby had her first dip in the pool together with Josie and her adorable baby boy, Lucas. These two cuties were born just a day apart from each other and they are six months already. Time flies! And they even wear a matching swimsuit. Cuteness overloaded :)

This page was created for Scrappin Studio using the Studio Calico July kit and it's my last project for the month of July. My next assignment would be in September. If you ever noticed, I love to add faux stitch to both my cards and scrapbook page. Of course the main reason is I don't have a sewing machine so the next available and reliable tool to go for would be my tracing wheel. I also created a very short tutorial for Scrappin Studio blog and thought I will share it here with you today.

All you need is a tracing wheel which you can get from a sewing store and an ink of your choice. I usually use either black or dark brown. Am too chicken to try other colors.....

First, ink your wheel a couple times on your ink pad......

Next, roll your tracing wheel onto your project. It could be on anything. Letter stickers (as shown below), borders, etc........

Voila, faux stitch in under one minute ♥

She is 6 months old

She is getting feisty
She smiles a lot
She cries a lot too
She started solid and is doing well so far
She can't fit in some of her clothes
She has more hair now
She still grabs at everything and anything
She talks a lot
She almost roll out of the bed once
She can sit momentarily without support
She shows sign of wanting to crawl

That's my baby at six months

CASE Study Challenge Blog turns 2!

Happy Thursday fellow crafters! Today marks the 2nd Anniversary of CASE Study Blog and Iwona invited all the past DTs and muses to have another round of blog hop to celebrate the milestone! I am honored that Iwona invited me to be part of the blog hop for second time :) The blog hop will be on going for two weeks and with two different themes but each designer will only take part in either week. I was asked to take part in the first week which I have to create something that best reflects my style. Honestly, I don't even know if I have a signature style to begin with. But I try my best :)

Sunburst pattern is cool and trendy right now that I decided to make a background of it. While halfway doing it, I encountered error here and there because I dived in without given much thought on the execution part. Lesson learned and love the end result :) The tag is by Studio Calico and I layered it with banners and a hello sticker by Amy Tangerine. And yes I still love butterfly. And yes I am not sick of staple yet. Maybe I should change my blog name to Cindy Lee the Staple Girl What you think? Does this card screams Cindy Lee? I certainly hope so.

Now that you have seen the card, it's your turn to hop along with us. Here's how.....
