Notebooks for the charity bazaar

Here they are.... notebooks that I had made for the charity bazaar..... 60 of them. A tedious process especially cutting the A4 size plain papers of which I won't be able to manage without the help of my 4 dearest friends... thank you so much.....

Design no. 1

Can't really see here... but I used distress powder all over the edges to give it a rough look. Stamp is from Tim Holtz (I love his stamp collections!!) and the heart-shaped chipboard is from Sizzix die cut.
Paper collection is from
Graphic 45.

Design no. 2

Using a mixture of pattened paper but mainly frm Nikkil Sivil.

Patterned paper is from Basic Grey Lime Rickey collection. The little van is so cute... love the vibrant, cheery colour of the notebook.
Another stamp from Tim Holtz. His sentiment stamps are so meaningful and inspiring.

Ah...... love the birdcage....
Thanks for looking!!!

Magnets for charity bazaar

Phew..... the charity bazaar was finally over!! We managed to make about 60 notebooks, 18 magnets, several gift boxes, cards, decorated birdcages (courtesy of Seasons Gift ) and 1 hanging decor and..... we sold them all!!

My first ever biggest 'project'. From designing them... to cutting up the A4 size blank paper.... to binding.... packing.... I'm so glad that I got so much help from my friends!! Without them... I won't be able to make it a success. Thank you so much!!

These are the magnets that I had created.....

I love the 'journaling':

Journaling: I am still determined to be cheerful and happy, in whatever situation I may be; for I have also learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness or misery depends upon our dispositions and not upon our circumstances. ~ Martha Washington

Whenever I read this.... it simply have a positive effect on me. This was not on sale as I had a custom order for my boss at work. It's gonna be exclusive for her... =)

Love the colour in this.....

"Spread your wings and fly"..... another inspirational words...

Ah.... my favorite too..... so cute and sweet.....
How I wished I had more time to make more of these...
Thanks for looking! Will be posting pics of my notebooks soon!!

Sneak Peek....

The day of the charity bazaar is drawing close.. and here's the sneaks of what I had done so far...

I had enjoyed myself greatly. A lot of hardwork but I got help from the junior nurses in my ward. They had been so helpful. Without them, I doubt I can do so much (especially slicing the A4 size paper.. heh). Sad thing was... I 'm not able to be there during the charity bazaar... I had to be somewhere else for my orientation as a newly promoted nurse clinician.... bummer.
Anyway.... have a great week! Hoping to go back to scrapping about my gals soon!!
