Elves At Work ♥

Busy! Tiring! Overwhelming! Perfect words to describe my current state of mind. With the street market drawing near, we are working really hard to get our stuff done. Dark eye circles are started to form under my eye too. We pray and hope that the effort we put in to the street market will pay off.

In between all the busyness, I made a layout for Scrappin Studio blog using the Central High and Style Guide kit by Studio Calico. I admit that I was kinda lost when I started this layout. At first I wasn't really keen on working with the red and yellow letter stickers by Amy Tangerine. And there's this hexagon chipboard which I had no clue on what to do either. I sat down and stare at them for a good 15 minutes before deciding to just go ahead and use them on my layout. Surprisingly I love how it turned out and glad that I step out of my comfort zone for a little while. Then I made a careless mistake by placing the ink cover right on top of the paper. So needless to say, I was left with an ugly patch of black ink right in front of me. I was devastated and when I finally get to calm myself down, I found a solution. The splatter of black mist was a result of my carelessness ♥ So next time if you happen to encounter the same mistake as mine (touch wood), grab a bottle of your favorite mist and rescue your project.

Cardpuccino And A Giveaway ♥

I think most of you have known by now that I've recently started an online store with my bestie, Josie and we named it Cardpuccino. We came up with a few names but unfortunately most of them were taken and we even had a good laugh when either one of us made up some funny names. I don't remembered clearly but I think it was Josie who suggested Cardpuccino. The name came about because she said that I love coffee and it was catchy enough for people to remember :) And like they said, the rest is history. Cardpuccino is mainly selling washi tape, handmade cards, mini album and card kits. If you don't already know, we are giving away washi tape and all you need to do is to like Cardpuccino Facebook page. We will randomly draw two winners tonight at 10pm. Come and join in the fun. We ship everywhere!

On another note, we are pretty excited to participate in our first ever craft market in October. Looking forward to meet other vendors and Cardpuccino customers ♥

Hello October ♥

Hello October - you've come to soon and I am not sure if I am ready to welcome you. Too many happenings this month and I have never been as crazily busy as I am right now. But I am crazily excited all the same time. I was super stoked when I received an email from Lisa Truesdell asking if I would be interested to create a card for Studio Calico blog in conjunction with WCMD. Of course I said yes! My challenge was to create a card in 15 minutes or less and you can see the post here. I used a lot of MME The Sweetest Thing collection here ♥

We've Been Washified.....

I love washi tape so much so that we (me and my best bud, Josie) decided to bring them in to our new store. They've just arrived and I must say that we've both been washified (yes, I made up that by staring at them for too long. We just can't help it! ♥ 

A full reveal will happen some time next week and if you are interested to get your hands on one of these tape, go here for more info.
