Jillibean Soup: Happy Birthday Card

Hello everyone! I have been busy busy busy preparing for our second craft fair that is happening on this weekend. Though the stress level is not as high as the first, but the amount of work put into preparing for the fair is equally same. Meanwhile, I look forward to meet more new people and manning the stall with Josie again ♥

Today I have a card up on Jillibean Soup blog using the Grandma's Lima Bean Soup and Soup Staples II paper. I love the versatility of the Soup Staples II paper because its polka dots and chevron pattern seems to work well with any paper. I've choose to create a masculine card because I find that the dude is often being left out when it comes to cardmaking, don't you agree? Speech bubble has becoming a fast trend in paper crafting world and thought it would be perfect to incorporate this trend into my card.

That's all I have for today and don't forget to visit Jillibean Soup blog for more card ideas. Warning: you are going to be heavily inspire by the :)

Layout For My DT Assignment ♥

Lately, work has taken up most part of my life and it seems hard to find the time to sit down and create. Not to mention I have a fussy 10 month old baby to take care of. Ramblings aside. Today I have two layouts to share (sorry that I have to squeezed two layouts in one post). The first one was for Scrappin Studio using the Studio Calico November kit. This month's kit is one of my favorite by far and it is not surprised that it was all sold out...including the add-ons! Here I used mostly Dear Lizzy 5th Frolic collection.

Next up is a layout for Jillibean Soup. Please head on over to the blog for more inspration by the DT. The complete list of supplies are also mentioned there. This photo of my daughter was taken by Josie after her first swim date with Lucas (Josie's son). Looking at this photo reminded me of how fast time flies. Abby has grown so much now and I can't believe this feisty baby will turn one year old soon. As I always said, my baby is not so baby

I hope you enjoy your day! Wish me luck in surviving yet another battlefield at work.

First Jillibean Soup Project ♥

My first Jillibean Soup project is up on the blog. Please head on over there to check out the fabulous cards created by the rest oft the Design Team. A very simple card using some of my favorite elements such butterfly and banner.

This card was featured on the Jillibean Soup last week as part of the DT introduction. I created the background by cutting patterned paper into strips, then randomly weaved and sewed them together.  I seem to have a thing for weaved background as this is the third project I've made with this pattern. More to follow :)

Hello! Street Market ♥

A quick update to tell you that I'm still alive despite the crazy schedule in October. The street market has ended on last Sunday and I must say that the effort poured into it was totally worthwhile. It was beyond our expectation and we were thankful for those who came and supported us. I want to especially thank Sharon for helping us during the peak hours. All in all, it was a great exposure for both me and Josie and we are looking forward to another craft market in December. Meanwhile, here's a photo of our booth courtesy of Josie. Enjoy!
