Cards for Thoughts

Sorry for being MIA for so long.

Usual excuse... hectic schedule...sigh.. Well actually, I was on a scrapping frenzy last week and after the 5 days scrapping marathon... my whole brain felt so numb till I couldn't do any LOs. It was a mad rush to churn out 20 layouts in 5 days. So... for the past few days, I was occupying myself with sorting out my scrap stash and the photos. So much to do and so little time.

Ok... enough talking.... wanna share some cards that I had created but had yet to post. Great way to use up patterned papers that I bought but decided not to use them in my LOs.
Using my Aida cloth as leaves. Misted it with Glimmer Mist..

I seemed to have a thing for vintage stuff now....

Thanks for dropping by.... Will share a few LOs that I did for a friend soon!

Pencil Lines Sketch #231

LO done using Pencil Lines Sketch #231..... I used the photo which was taken on her 4th birthday. Her birthday wish was to go 'castle' (which refers to Universal Studio) and pic was taken as requested by the birthday girl herself. She literally dragged her Daddy to try on some hats and happily posed for him as I was busy trying to soothe Meimei who was turning cranky ( no afternoon nap + hot weather = 1 cranky Meimei). I only got her a birthday present yesterday which was a tricycle and she is SOO happy with it! She rode it (rode it = Mummy or Daddy pushing gently from behind) all the way back from the bicyle shop and even allowing Meimei to sit pillion ride. That reminds me that I need to take a pic of them riding it together... Hehe.. Misting & stamping again...
More sewing on the LO...

Most of the embellishments are cut-out from the patterned papers itself. A lot of my friends think that scrapbooking is so expensive which is quite true here in Singapore but if you know how to make use of the materials that you have, it's really not that bad.. Oh... the butterflies are actually ribbon (got it from my sister)...

Need to go now... remember to check out others' creation here too!

Thanks for looking... Take care!!

Just a Note Card

As I was cleaning and rummaging through my stash of patterned papers, I found a pack of K & Company collection (well, maybe not that old) and I've got this sudden urge to make some cards with it. Coupled with some flowers and embellishments.... Then I realised that it wouldn't fit into a normal envelope as the flower is too bulky. Inspired by this creative lady, I stamped and embellished a brown paper sack that I had used to wrap up my last year Christmas gifts and used them as envelope.

Thanks for looking!!
