Tri Fold Card in Red & Black Theme with Heart & Glittered Stars



I like to use certain colours for certain themes but if I were to use bold colours, red is often a preferred colour especially when paired with black or gold. It is like a made in heaven combination even if the card is going to be a love themed one especially when red is used as a solid colour for the heart shape. For this trifold card, while I usually like to use a combination of colours, I had to make a specific red and black themed one so I worked along it by choosing the embellishments in the same colour group.

Friendship & Vintage Themed Explosion Box Card

 
 
Last weekend, my friends and I caught up with each other for coffee and cakes and we had fun sharing laughter and also reminiscing about the past back in the school days. Most of us are married already and have small kids so that would be quite a while ago, haha.
 
For this explosion box card, the theme is friendship and vintage. Carta Bella had some pretty vintage looking collection recently and I used mostly their papers to construct this box card. The combination of light brown and red helped to bring out the vintage feel.

Handmade 6 Inches Friendship & Desserts Themed Mini Album



Hi Everyone,

I thought I would take a break from posting about explosion box card and write a post about this 6 inches mini album instead. I adored this a lot and didn't quite have to think through much the placements like I'm imagining where the photos should be because it only required space for about 3 photos only. It's a friendship themed, pastel and sweet desserts all rolled into this one mini album.

Sweet Box Card for 60th Birthday






Hi Everyone,

Actually what I liked most about this box card is how I actually designed the box cover. Also, I liked the colour scheme that I used for this card which is more on the soft vintage side..if there's such a thing..a collection from Bo Bunny. I am honestly bad remembering the collection names of certain releases but let's go in details with this post, shall we.

Trifold Card in Sweet Blushed Pink with Gold Polka Dots & Purple Scallop Border


Hi Everyone,

The trifold is a unique type of card that is actually made from just half of a 12 x 12 patterned paper but cut in such a way that you can fold it in an interesting manner with different panels. I usually like to spend more time on the cover where I will do some layering to make it 'pop' even more like make it more 3D looking.

Christmas Themed Box Cards with Love Theme & Pop Up Christmas Box



Hi Everyone,

I guess I should have done this post last week since tomorrow is already New Year. So have you set goals for yourself? To me, I think goals are not synonymous with the start of the year only but can be done throughout the year. One way to stick to the goal is to know what you're in it for and to keep track of it, let's say, every week. Also, to do a small part of the goal on a daily basis by noting them in your planner whether online or offline or notebook and keep at it until you achieve it. Honestly, there will be distractions along the way but again, know what you're in it for, let's say healthier weight range, more savings etc..that your future self will thank you for.

Light Blue Christmas Themed Trifold Card & Pop Up Box Card




Hi there,

I thought I would do this special post as today is Christmas Day and if you're celebrating it, Merry Christmas to you! Otherwise, happy hols!! 

For me, I'm nursing a tummy upset, haha. Anyway...

I did a three types of card and I'm featuring 2 types here. One is a pop up box card and another is a trifold card. The one above is the pop up one which is similar to the trifold card in which it can lay flat and kept away if not in its standing position.

Explosion Box Cards in Red & Love Theme




Hi everyone,

In this post I will showcase two explosion box cards because of the similar theme and use of colours. I loved these little rosettes that I bought from Popular Bookstore recently and while they are cheaper than the ones usually sold at the bigger scrapbooking stores, they're not all perfect. But generally, they're well designed except for one or two which seems a bit off. 

I like to use dimensional stickers or at least pop up some foam adhesives behind stickers after backing them up with scrap pieces of cardstock. It's a cheaper yet still interesting use of stickers instead of just using them in its 2D form if you want to save some money from buying those chipboard stickers in 12X12 size that now costs more than $12.00.

Anyway, nowadays I also like to 'short cut' a bit by cutting up a single patterned paper that has a variety of journal cards and use them for at least 2 of the panels. It's a lot faster to design box cards this way too, besides using bigger dies like the heart in the first picture below, to occupy each panel. If the journal card is a bit bigger in size, I will cut it smaller so that it will fit in  nicely. I will sometimes jazz it up a bit with smaller stickers or back it up with cardstock and use a fancy stickers to cut a nice border around it. 

You can see what I mean from the pictures below. Usually I don't post or even take pictures of all sides but now I try to make an effort doing so just so that you can see how I design the bottom layer.

Hope you get some inspiration from these pictures. Thanks for dropping by!

Mini Album with Love Phrases & Words in Black & Blue Theme


I haven't done a mini album post in awhile but got excited when I was asked to make one. But I didn't have much time again, like what's new, so again, I have to rely on quick techniques. Except for the first two pages, I had to think a bit because it's always a slow start.

As wordings and pictures are involved in this making of the mini album, it's actually simpler to decorate them. All I had to do was to back up the sentences with patterned papers followed by some simple embellishments. As this would go out to a guy, I used very very minimal flower decorations. But I really like the last page where somehow, the two opposite pages seem to be more matchy with its colours for the decorations.

I die cut the stars and one leftover star which didn't go well with the rest of the cover page. But I didn't want to keep or throw it away and somehow managed to find a spot. You can see it from the picture below along with the description for the above.

So I hope you like this mini album I have made. For custom orders, please feel free to send me your order queries.

Thanks for dropping by!

Easel Card in Shades of Purple with Red & Pink Butterfly Chipboard



Hi Everyone,

First of all sorry for the blurry first picture. I didn't realise how blurry it was when I tried to upload the photo and I had given it away already by then so it's too late for a retake. Good thing, I took a close shot so you can see the details a little more.

I wanted a purple theme for this card actually. Because this patterned papers from Bo Bunny has gorgeous flower designs on them which I wanted to use for this card. Honestly, it's quite difficult to find purple flower designs and even patterned papers these days, I don't know why. As for the centre decorations, I used some leftover chipboards from a pack I bought from a stationery shop. This is one of my favourite packs because of the butterfly. 

I don't know if you can see but I added some purple hues using distress ink. I think it's called grape seed from Tim Holtz distress ink pad. I also decided to add some diecuts in the background using the mixed media thinlits from Tim Holtz as well. Can't wait for my next payday coz I am gonna get the other pack with more flowery and flourish design. Yaaas..

I used purple glitter cardstock for this so it added some nice accent to the overall card look.

Hope you like this easel card that I've made. For custom orders, please feel free to send me your order queries.

Thanks for dropping by!
