Diva~

Hello! How have you been? I hope your weekend will be full of creative creations.

I want to share with you a layout that I finished recently.
It called Diva!


We went to Toys 'R' US last month (26th May), my daughter Sarah chose & decided to buy a set of tiara with earring. Then she saw a wand & wanted it! Lol! We got home & she wore it beautifully & looked like a real princess. I just couldn't believe that she's a growing up!! The beautiful corset vintage was from Free Vintage Digital Stamps (you can find more blogs/web that offer free stuffs here, I'll be keep adding the list as soon as I find some, so you want to check it out from time to time).


I just can't have enough of these mulberrry flowers. As always, I love to put them together in a cluster & tied it with a ribbon. I used Prima, Lyric Collection. Put some washi tapes, die cut the word Diva & the crown using Sizzix dies. Cut a doily into half & folded it into fan & put some glue (Claudine Hellmuth - Multi Medium Gloss) & poured the Stickles Dry Fine Glitter (Thistle & Diamond), love the outcome!


This cameo button is so cute!! I decided it will be pretty to put it on the picture. I also put a purple heart button below it. :)

So what do you think of my layout? Sweet right? I love it sweet!! 
Thanks for looking :)

Father's Card Swap & Tag Swap.

Hi everyone :) Hope you are fine. This is a late post that I supposed to post on last Sunday! I'm going to share these swaps that I made with my swap partners.

This card was for my Malaysian partner, Jing Yi with the theme Father's Day.


I have no idea what kind of card to make for father's day theme. So I surfed the net & found some card using this origami shirt! Now, why I didn't think of that? *slap my forehead* As I love making this simple paper folding, I still remember the step by step of folding it. Remember I'm a preschool teacher? Yes, I need to be able to do some simple origami to teach my kids! Lol!


Ok the second one is a tag swap for my UK partner, Peta Elliott Mills. 


I experimenting the tag, I spray misted my embossing folder & put the card stock, rolled it using the Big Shot. I love the uneven result of the spray on the embossed card stock. I put the doily which I cut 1/4 of it. Put washi tape by Glitz, I die cut a PP using Memory Box Dies (both the branch & little tag). Put some rhinestones & ribbon. I glued my handmade flower as the finale~ Hahaha.. But I do love the outcome of the tag :)

So what do you think of my card & tag for my partners? Both my partners love it though ;)

Thanks for looking. :)

P/s: I'll post a layout later today that I finished yesterday.

A layout of my 2nd daughter.

Hi everyone. I'm so happy today because it's school holidays!!!
Ok, today I'm going to share a layout that I made this week :)



Close up.


I don't remember the name of this PP, except there were 4 different brand of PP. The background, the cut-out birds & branches (I used to remember this collection but now I forgot the name!), behind picture, the heart shaped (maybe from Fancy Pants) & heart shaped cut-out (from another collection of Fancy Pants) & hexagon pp (from latest Prima - Divine Collection).

The quote is a rub-on from my old collection. I don't remember the name too!! Lol! I used some washi tape & mulberry flowers & pins from Maya Road. I don't know what is the suitable title for it as I found this layout is already pretty as it is. Hehehe..

Thanks for looking. :)

Buried Treasure 2013 (by Seth Apter)

Hello everyone~ Good morning! Today is Wednesday & this will be a quick post from me (I hope! Lol!). As I told you last time that I want to be a part of the Buried Treasure Event 2013 by Seth Apter, today I'm going to share you two of my favourite posts. This is my first time to participate this kind of event.

1st one is a book binding. This book is a dowry book that I made for my youngest sister back in 2009. This book will be presented to the groom side with lists of things that the bride side want. Actually, it was a new trend during that time to use book! Before, the groom representative just read it on a piece of paper & gave it to the bride representative. But nowadays, I see people use book for this purpose. I think the reason for this is to make it more meaningful & easier to find it? As if a piece of paper tend to get lost rather than a book, right?? Lol!

If you want to read my previous post about this book click here.


2nd one is about my handmade tags!! I totally love these handmade tags of mine!! I made these last year for a challenge. More information about these tag, you can read this post.


So what do you think of my book & tags?? I definitely will make more books, it's been a while I didn't make it. Sigh... Those tags, I'm going to make more beautiful ones! Just wish I have plenty of time. Ok I need to go to work!! 

Thanks for dropping by ;)

P/s: Don't forget to let me know that you drop by here, so that I can visit your blog too ;)

Ok, here I am sharing a digital layout that I made entirely from freebies!! Except that doily is from a digital collection that I bought. 

My 2 Little Angels~


So what do you think?? I scrapped this picture of my 2 little angels (on 1st June 2013, ehem from Instagram, my addiction!) using digital freebies that I found from Pinterest & some that I found myself by surfing the net. If you want those digital freebies for your digital layouts or even for printing, you can follow me on my Pinterest, another new addiction of mine!! You can find these on Digital SB Freebies, & you can find other digital images for printing on Print, Print, Print Them!! ;)

Ed's Sketch, Got Stamp? June 2013 Challenge & Instagram~

Hello. Today I'm going to share a layout that I made for June Ed's Sketch, Got Stamp?


We are required to use any date stamp on our layout.

Here is my take on June sketch.


The pp is from Teresa Collins Sweet Afternoon collection. I used twine from We R Memory Keepers. The antique mirror stickers are from Prima. I used MFT dies for the vines. Put my fabric handmade flower on top of it & push some pins from Maya Road behind that flower. The 'smile' sticker from Pebbles Inc. The photo mat (black with writing on it) was from an old collection of PP, Adorn It, Carolee's Creations. I also put some mulberry flowers & a heart cut-out pp (I think from Fancy Pants). Actually, I accidentally squeezed the Stickle (Icicle) & I kind of love it! Lol! I honestly didn't want to wipe my 'mistake', it's an art~ Lol!


Here is the close up look on  my 'mistake'. I took the picture using Instagram~ Hooray!! :D Dear hubby is so kind as usual he bought a new handphone for me! I love you dearest hubby!! :D (He always buy the handphone for me (whenever my phone has nearing it's end, sadly but true! I used my Sony Xperia since 2010) as I'm not really an avid fan of newest gadget!).

Ok this photo was taken by my niece on my brother's handphone. As you all know my daughter is on the right side with curly hair & the other girl is my newest niece (my younger sister gave birth a month before me).

Before I'm gone, here is the latest picture of my 2 beautiful girls, of course using Instagram ;)


Thanks for looking~ I hope you all have a nice weekend ;)
