Card making craze...
I think I'm in a mood of making cards these few days.. and I have been using my sewing machine quite a bit. I'm not sure how I'm going to keep all my cards but I know I'm not going to stop making it. My cards are 'overflowing' and here's some more to add to it...lol

You see I've been using my EK Success punch lately. 
I just love this design and by the way the punch was a good buy..
I got it at 40% off...

On the cards I've used :
Prima Flowers
Dusty Attic small scroll
MSE Rub-ons
Butterfly punch
my own bling
I sew on both cards

Here's another one which is totally different from the above..
oh no.... can't really see it from here..(((
I embossed the small white piece of paper there but it cannot be seen....
Anyways, this is a total different feel and look. Very sweet and bright and
can you see the bling at the side..
A good friend of mine ordered it for me from States. Infact I have few things coming in from there. We combined order and it's kind of cheaper that way. We all know the scrapping stuff has never come in cheap so when we do it this way, it's actually more worth it and we did save quite a bit. All thanks to my wonderful friend. I love the blings....
I must remember to take a more close up pictures of my cards...so that the details can be seen clearly.

I'm working on Pencil line Sketch challenge at the moment and 
here's the sneak...

Thanks for looking and coming into my little humble blog...
Hope your Tuesday is doing you fine so far...
Have a great day ahead

May 15th Challenge
over @ Once Upon A Sketch will be ending in about 1 day 12 hours. Lucky me I completed my page just in time. I was working on this over the weekend. The criteria this time round is that your journalling should be typed. It so happened that DH brought home a typewriter not long ago and at moment like this the typewriter become very handy for me. It gives me a chance to practice my typing skills.(lol) Anyways here's my completed page.....

My typed journal....
Honestly, when I gathered my papers, red was not in my mind.  It was only before I adhere all pieces together that I thought of playing with red. The burst of red just make me so happy looking at this page. Hmm...and I thought, hey...it's not bad after all. 
Before I sign off, I want to thank Nadia from UOAS for this wonderful sketch.
She is one talented lady and her works are such an inspiration. Way to go Nadia :) 

Have a great Monday everyone

Another piece of altered art...
Hello friends :) How are you  on this Sunday afternoon? Hope you are feeling terrific. I told you I went to this $2 shop called Daiso and I bought some wooden plank which is pretty much like a signboard. I decided to altered it a bit and this is what I've done...

I love the natural color of the wood, I just added the flowers, the welcome metal sticker and few  butterflies from Martha Steward butterfly punch. I added some glossy accents on the butterflies to harden it a little and that's it I'm done....
Oh yes..there is a string attached so you can actually hang it up. This probably will go right infront of my house as a welcome signage...
I've been doing some cards since yesterday and is also completing the 
challenge for Once Upon A Sketch. 
Will be posting those tomorrow. 

Hope you are enjoying your time with your loved ones..
Have a great Sunday

Card Pattern #116

Hello there once again, it's time to have some fun over at Card Patterns for their #116 challenge. Their sponsor for this week is Penny Black Stamps. Penny Black have many amazing wonderful stamps and I happened to have some of it and I choose to work with this one . I had a great time coloring this.

This is the sketch to work on... Again its by the talented Nina B the team from the Card Patterns blog.

I decided to rotate it horizontally and this is what I've done....

Have a wonderful day

So friends, if you would like to try your chance in winning some Penny Black stamps, than come and join in their fun at Card Pattern. You never know, you may the lucky one. Oops..but you have about 2 days 20 hours left...

Thanks for coming by

May BAP - Prima
Yes...it's time again to play Prima's Build-A-Page. This time it's using multiple photos...
And  this is Prima's BAP for May

This is my take...
Honestly, this really took me a little longer than usual to complete.
I tried to follow the sketch as close as possible. I think this is the best I can get.lol
I 've used mostly Prima and played with TA glimmer mist.

So how have you been doing my friends? Hope everything is good at your end. I went to our LSS yesterday to replenish my Prima flowers and some other scrappy stuff. Made a visit to Daiso and bought some wooden signage and blocks and hopefully to come up with something in a day or two. Sometimes in order to get the mojo going, I switched to altered art and cardmaking instead of working at 12 by 12 all the time. It really helps for me, and if you are ever sick and tired or loss of ideas on 12 by 12, try switching to other methods of arts.  As we all know, the possibilities never ends.

Enjoy your Tuesday evening
See ya soon

Thinking of you today....
I made this from a little wooden plaque.. Remember i painted it with crackle paint-tattered rose..
Just love love the cracking effect...
I decided to turn it horizontally and this is what i did...
A very simple and sweet little plaque where you can place it on the writing table 
or anywhere you like..
This is not for me..
I may be giving this to someone whom I know will treasure it a lot..

It's a brand new day of the week
Hope you have a great start to it..

The final piece...
At last, after working on this for 3 days, it's all done up now and with these you can say that I'm really a Chanteuse collection fanatic. lol
Phew..these drawers thinge took a lot out from me.. but I'm happy that's it turned out the way just I want it to be..
Here it is sharing with you my piece of altered art...
This is  the side view...
This is the front...

And that's the inside drawers...
I thought since the outside is quite nice why  not do something with the inside.
So this silly me, embellished  inside each drawer as well. So when you pull out a drawer, you will be greeted with some nice little flowers...
I think I will be using this to put my accessories inside..
That way, all my little earrings, rings, bracelets etc would not be all over the place..
Yipee.....I finally got something done for myself.

For this drawers I've used :
Kaisercraft Beyond the Page (Bookend Drawers)
Kaisercraft Chanteuse collection
Kaisercraft Wood Flourish
Black Cardstock
Distress Crackle Paint Tattered Rose (Ranger)
Arcylic Paint Evergreen
Sakura Micron 03
Uniball Signo White
And lots of love

So how's your Tuesday morning been so far? 
Hope you have a fine start to your day. 
I have a few things line up on my plate this week...
Prima BAP
Once Upon a Sketch
Card Pattern
Complete a page layout..
Hmm...let's see which comes first..

Anyways, thanks for coming into my little cyber world where I share all my scrappy stuff 
and the not so scrappy stuff as well. 
For those that leave a comment..thank you so much I appreciate it a lot.
leaving you for now..

This time round, your journalling has to be on the journalling spot. I had so much fun creating this page. Words are just not enough to describe my excitement when i began to put all the pieces together...

Nevertheless..here's the given sketch to work on....
Thank you Nadia..just love all your sketches so far..
This is my take....
That's a happy me...
Journalling reads...
The best vitamin
to be a happy person is 

As you can see....
I've used the
Kaisercraft Chanteuse collection
I'm loving this collection to the sky and back...lol
It's a victorian elegance, with girly hues and designs, this collection is not to be missed!
Because i'm loving this so much I also created a shabby vintage card

To all mothers out there...
Happy Mother's Day

I did this for myself...Happy Mother's Day to me...lol

This is from my dearie son.... he made this himself with little help from me...
Forgot to take photo of the inside...
it reads... Happy Mother's Day with a heart shape there and he signed off with his name..how sweet of him..Of course not forgetting, my number 1 gave me a very beautiful top. 
Thanks Saj that's so nice of you. 
If you are wondering about the roses..I bought them for myself when I was at the market yesterday. I don't usually buy flowers but for some reason I thought of getting the roses..they are so beautiful and so fresh and so red and so nice and so inviting.....so I must have...
To all mothers who are celebrating their day, this is for you too...

Happy Mother's Day

K & Company & Bravissimo....
I got my hands on the new K & Co Watercolor Bouquet Collection Paper. They are so so pretty..and also the little tag pads is a must have if you love tags. I made a little accordion album for my buddy and thought of sharing it with you here...
This is the front...
I used Bravissimo ( I Love You )
I love this color combination....
This is my accordion...the front view...
 From the side view...
This is the back...
The album itself.....
I love making altered projects and minis and this one is no exception.. The color coordination, putting little things together, add a little something here and there just give me the thrill. I get easily excited with these kind of things. I guess all scrappers do.
Well i have not been scrapping to be honest for almost two weeks already. Thank goodness my mojo came back earlier than expected and thats how this album was born..

Mother's Day is coming just round the corner... Hope to make a card or two...
In the meantime..
Thanks for coming
Have a Great Day Everyone
