Hello Scrappers...
today I have an interesting page to share with you....I did lots of handwork on this.. 
This is for Creative Scrappers #162
This is the sketch by Aphra Bolyer..thanks so much for the inspiration...

And this is my take...
Faux stitching fonts that i'm falling in love with....
Bought from our LSS here last week..i'm really loving the stitches around the alphabets there....
The flowers there, I actually drew them myself. I tore pages from an old book.  First I used a brayer with glimmer mist and go over it to give it a more aged look....I than use a little paintbrush to draw the flowers and leaves, also with tattered angels glimmer mist...Dry them with the heat tool gun, and when its completely dried, I go over with a white gel pen to outline the flowers..  lastly I added some blings for some dimension.. This was really fun to do.. I learnt this techniques from the Youtube by Shimmerz. I don't have Shimmerz spray paint, so I used TA Glimmer Mist instead... You should try and discover it yourself and you will be amazed at how versatile they can be.. I know I was..

Next I did some stitching here... I used my leftover twines..poke some holes using my pin, and started my way in and out till I reached the top...It's my first time doing it and i think it won't be my last.. 
I think it's quite

And finally...
here's my take for the sketch...
Always Together
Yup that's the three of sisters and myself..
We don't always meet up that often, but when we do, it's always the three of us together...
So i think the title is just perfect for this page...

Ok I'm going to leave you for now...
You have a great midweek

Loving You Always
This is a page I did for my sister. It is something a little different from my usual. I did lots of distressing and also bubble wrap stamping on this one. She loves pink and i thought this will be perfect for her. Also at the same time I want her to know that I'll always love her. This one for you Shad :)

Sorry it's a little blur here...Hmm.... I wonder wonder...'s your Monday been so far? Hope you have had a great weekend..Mine was a great one spending time with DH. Today I'm totally shag.. the kids are back to school after a long month break I've been up and about since 7am. I was doing all the household chores... like a typical housewife would do. I have not touch my scrappy stuff yet...
I'm tired....I think I want to take a short nap now.

Hope you are enjoying whatever you are doing..
Stay Happy

This is for
Creative Scrappers Sketch #161

and this is my take for it...

This is a very simple and manly page. No flowers and very minimal embellishment. I've used Tim Holtz tag and some masking tape. Lots of distressing and added some buttons for a little texture.. Soon Creative Scrappers will be coming up with their #162 and I can't wait to play along again..

It's a lovely Sunday morning here and hope you'll have a beautiful day ahead.

Hi friends..
today I'm sharing with you a page I did for Pencil lines sketch #243. I love creating white page sometimes, and when I saw this sketch, I knew exactly what I want to do with it. So without further ado..
here's sketch #243 from Pencil Lines

and this is my take...

That's my daughter and my sister..both their names starts with letter S, so when I'm out of title like  S & S came in mind. Again I played with chopstick and added my favorite rosebuds...

here's a little close up

I'm loving the purple here..At times purple can be a little challenging to work with but I think, 
with white base, it works well...
Anyways..hope you are enjoying your Friday

Another altered canvas....
This is the last one that I have and finally I got my hands on it. I love making altered art sometimes and these teeny weeny canvas which is about 5inch by 5 inch or maybe slightly bigger is really fun to work with. 


Pardon me..I know I have used this photo before but somehow i really like this...
So that's my altered canvas..and the earlier one was for Prima's PPP. There's so many things one can do with stamping, inking, misting, painting etc...For me, I did some inking and bubble wrap stamping. I tried working on some muted colors and I hope this is soft
Some close up on the flowers....

You see those rose buds...I just bought them from a friend. They are so sweet and so tiny that you can easily add them on any of your projects. Miss V thank you so much for getting me these. I really really love them so much. And you see, I used chopstick again, I must be addicted to this skinny wooden stick for one reason or another. I inked the stick with my versafine deep blue lagoon and clustered all my flowers and I twirled some thin green wire on it like as if they are really vines growing on a

 I will be working on Pencillines and Creative Scrappers sketches for this week today. 
Hope you are also getting your creative juice flowing.

Once again...
I'm playing with the Prima's Build A Page for June. Somehow I think I'm always late at this..partly because, our LSS here does not carry a huge quantity of Prima products. Apart from Prima flowers and some embellishment here and there, there's actually nothing much you can get in store. So that's the reason, when I want to play along with their BAP I will take a little longer than usual coz i need to dig out my old stash to get some nice papers to work with..I hope they will bring in Prima goodies sometime soon... Ok I think I'm rambling too much here...
Here is the sketch for June BAP...
and this is mine...

That's me and my sister..we are always happy when we are together..
That's a happy us...

little close up...
Instead of journalling..I used the Prima packaging, cut it into shape and replace the journalling with this. I have plenty of this, and when I can used it here, it's not bad after all huh? So you see, when you have those Prima flowers with this kind of packaging at the back, don't throw them away..they can be useful sometime..

I'm also trying my luck with June's Prima Product Pick.. If you have not seen them yet, please visit here and you can see the vibrant colors that you can have fun with..
I had so much fun doing this yesterday..
Here's what I've done...
I played with

Just in case you are wondering about the's actually Prima's iron-on.

Well that's all I have for you today..
If you want to play along at Prima, there's still some time left before June 30th. 
Hurry and get creative!!
Hope your Tuesday is fine...

Just saying hello....

and hope you have a good start to your Friday morning.  This is the latest addition to my card making craze.. I just bought a Repositionable rubber stamps by HeroArts from our LSS here yesterday and immediately work on it as soon as I got home. Flowers are from Petaloo and of course Prima. I inked it with Worn Lipsticks added some lace and blings and's done... 

On a happier note.. My page for the May's BAP got featured on Prima's blog among other wonderful scrappers beautiful pages. I'm so honoured to be featured for the second time consecutively in two months. I never thought that mine will be picked again. Thank you so much, and for those whose pages are also up on the blog..Congrats. Just in case if you haven't noticed, Prima's blog has got a new skin with a new look.

I did a teeny weeny bookmark corner and loving it a lot.  It's just a simple one and here it is...

Have a great Friday everyone

over at Creative Scrappers is such a beauty. Here's my take for it that I would love to share with you. If you want to play along, there's still sometime to have fun.

Here's the's just so lovely right?
This is my take...
I choose to scrap about my parents... photo taken in 1952
They are resting in peace in heaven now...
The blue flower is for dad and the pink is for mom..
Mom & Dad:
Though you have been gone for many years,
I still have both of you at heart
May the angels of Heaven be with both of you

A little close up on the embellishments
These are flowers I just bought over at our LSS not long ago. Just loving them..

That's all for now..
Have a great day

Captured Moment...
Once Upon A Sketch reveal for 15 June is already up on their blog. This time the journalling criteria is to journal at least 4 sentences on why your pictures are memorable. The theme is 'A Moment In Time'. Their Guest Designers and Design Team work are truly awesome. They all do wonderfully gorgeous work. Do check them them here to get your inspiration. There's also some yummy prizes to be won. You may the lucky never know if you never try.
So here I am trying my luck...

This is Nadia's beautiful sketch to work with..

I flipped the sketch to my left and this is my page....

 Ok this is one hilarious picture of my son. We brought him to Universal Studio at the Resort World here in Singapore. It was during their soft opening and we really had a great time there. You know how these characters like Franklin Einstein, Charlie Chaplin to name a few will just walked around and you can snapped photo with them if you want. Ok out of nowehere there was this Joker that was walking and jumping around and was walking towards our direction. My son saw him and immediately ran and hide under a nearby table behind the stool. He got the fright of his life when he saw this "zebra man" (his description of him, not mine) He was so panicked and refused to get out from under the table until the zebra man went out of sight. He was so hilarious. I caught him on camera. That was indeed one unforgettable captured moment.
 I will definitely show him this page again when he grows up. He will than have a good laugh at himself. Silly boy....

Thanks for coming by
Thanks Nadia for a wonderful sketch..
Thanks to all the Design Team at OUAS for such great inspiration.

Here's a page I wanted to share...They are my sisters that I usually hang out with..We don't meet often, so when we do, we usually snap pictures of ourselves..I'm loving the Dusty Attic Wire Dress here. I thought my page will be messy,but thankfully it turned out quite well...

are the most
our mind can paint
can ever erase them

Yes, these are one of those sweet memories that we had when we were together. We laughed, we joke, we imitate, we do silly stuff. Sisters..I wonder what I'll do without them.
I thank God above for sending them into my life..

Thanks for coming

Some Gentleman cards..
I did over the weekend, I wanted to do only one but ended up with four's addictive seriuosly..I got inspired through the net via YouTube..Thanks to Dawn from StampinUp for these..
Here you go...

You open it up by lifting the collar a little, and there behind the shirt with the tie, you can write your message. You can also fold up the sleeve, it will sit in neatly in an envelope if you want to mail it out. How cool.. It's super duper easy to do this!! You know how difficult it is to do a guy card right? 
So with these..... it's a Yipee!!

I must have woken up from the wrong side of the bed Yup immediately after I freshen up, I took out my distress inks, my dabber, my wooden stamp and papers and started working on this..
Mind you..way before I even took my breakfast..I must be crazy...
My son was like..."so early in the morning?"
He must be thinking in his mind, what's up with my mom? Haha, that was funny..if only you could see the expression on his face..
So here's my "morning breakfast" today...

I was smiling to myself when doing this. I cut out butterflies from the stamp to give it a 3d look.. I'm supposed to use a blending tool, but because I don't have one, I used a dabber instead so that's why the 3 colors doesn't really blend in well. I will definitely try this method again. I was inspired at Penny Black's blog when I was there yesterday. Every Mondays, their DT will inspired you with some stamping techniques. You have to spend sometime visiting their blog if you love stamping like me. They do amazing work. 

 Distress Inks that I used :
Shabby Shutters
Weathered Wood
Dried Marigold
Scattered Straw

Thanks for coming..
Have a lovely day ahead

Be back with a page layout shortly...

Some cards 
I've just completed and thought of sharing it with you..

I used Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden Ephemera
Maya Road Tag
Own Lace
Distress Ink - Pumice Stone

I kind of like this one a little more than the above..
Again I've used the Pink Paislee patterned paper
Added my own ribbon
Maya Road Trinkets/Pin
Prima Flowers
Rub-ons (MSE)

This is something out of the box..
I wanted to try something different..I just bought a new set of Penny Black rubber stamp.
I was inspired when I visited their blog and that's how this card was born..
You can check the techniques here and have fun with your stamping.. It's really inspiring
I did some embossing here and colored it with my oil pastel crayons..

And now on to the next one...
Same rubber stamp but done differently..

I stamped and colored the flower and curled it a little to give some dimension..
I used my Faber Castell coloring pencils and spend about close to half an hour coloring this piece.
I also used Tim Holtz stamping collection and one of the K & Co Ephemeras.
I like's simple and clean

Once again from my Penny Black rubber stamp collection you can see..I'm in a card making mood lately..but I have to complete some pages as well..

I'm working on these, a color that I've never worked on before, 
and crossing my fingers that it will turned out nice.. lol
Thanks for coming by..
Hope your Friday is doing you fine.
Take Care

Real Life...
Hello friends, how's your day been so far? I have a page that I've just completed not too long ago and I'm really loving it a lot. This is my real life..being with the man I love, someone that is so supportive of my craziness in scrapbooking, who will bring me all the way out just to buy one rubber stamp, someone that is continuously encouraging me to never give up and I'm just loving my life with him by my side...
Here's sharing you my real life page....

Some close up....
I did some stamping on the white flower and added some blings above it..
I love this bubble wrap stamping effect..I think this is very cool :)
 This Tim Holtz Philosophy Tag just added that final touch for the corner of my page.

And again, because I do not want to waste my leftovers....
I made a card to go along with this...


Now that I 've put all these up for my entry..I think I've been working quite a bit on Red lately..
Hope this is not too red for
I hope to work on a more softer and muted colors next.
Thanks for coming by..
Hope your Tuesday is doing you fine....

Good Morning scrappy friends...
how have you been? Hope you had a great weekend and a good start to your Monday morning:) Today I have a page to share with you which is from Creative Scrappers sketch #158.
I have always love Creative Scrappers sketches, but due to some commitment that I had, I wasn't able to participate much but now that I am free from it, here I come again.
This was their #158 sketch.(sketch #159 is already up)
 Lovely sketch..I love this..

And this is my take.....
This page is on my son..Abhi (a very boy page)
It's been a while I did a page on him and when he saw me doing it, he actually was very excited and help me to decide what goes where. It amused me..such a lovely boy.. He requested that I MUST not have too much flowers on it, and that the flower must be away from him.  Lucky I have this webster's flower that is not so so girly.. You see, that's what I meant..a very boy
Anyways, hope you are enjoying your time scrapping..
I will be working on sketch #159 soon

I'm just helping 
to spread words...As mentioned, there's a new kid on the blog. It's called Scrap for Help and this is their cute badge..
It aims to unite people with different styles, to bring people closer to each other, to help promote togetherness. It's about SOLIDARITY. Right now they are having their first challenge, and the requirement is rather easy. Recycled material, and this time round you have to use bubble wraps and flags(banner) in your creation and the theme is LOVE. I just came back from their blog and saw all the amazing work of their DTs. Simply gorgeous!! Ok if you are wondering am I part of their team, I am not. I am just doing my part to help spread words. That's the least I can do. Their aim is for good cause and it's nice to do something good for others. So if you are reading this now, and wish to know more,  than hop over to their blog and read  in details what it's all about. This way you got the chance to see the take of the wonderful work of the DTs too :)

In the meantime
Have a Great Friday 
(Oh Goodness, it's Friday already!!)

Beyond the Page
from Kaisercraft...I like how its called-Beyond the page instead of altered art. Well it depends on how you want to look at it. Anyways, I love doing altered art and Kaisercraft BTP has got me hooked to it even more. In Singapore, Kaisercraft product are not widely available, so whenever I see something that I knew for sure I can work with, I grabbed it fast. 

Here is their BTP (Photo Display) that's what stated in the packaging...

Yup I unwrapped it and display it raw for you to see...
You see the patterned paper's from DCWV 
(the Blossom Song stack) 
I got it at 40% off...shhh....Yah it's a good buy I

And tada... this is the final look
You see the papers are beautiful right? Lovely lovely....
So instead of a photo Display..I 'm using it for....
my bills....maybe also a to-do-list and notes...
I should start labelling them so that I will know exactly what goes where...

And because I do not want to waste my little left over...
I made this. I just completed this about half hour ago.. Still hot and fresh from the


 Hope you are enjoying your second day of June. Time is really flying super fast. It's a school holiday here in Singapore. It's a month long. If you are a teacher hope you will enjoy this break. For me, a stay at home mum, I'm enjoying my time with my children. This is a much needed break especially for my first one. 

Have a great Thursday
