Monkeying Around..A Father's Day Card


I actually didn't think that one day I would be making a Monkey themed card but well, here I am. I ever saw the patterned papers of cute animals like the monkeys but never bought them before until I had to make a customised Monkey and trees themed card. So I was quite lucky Bella Boulevard had a zoo themed collection and I bought two of their patterned papers.

I ended up not using all but one large piece which I cut out from a single paper and used it as the central piece. After that I used another patterned papers with trees pattern and cut out various designs of trees to form a collage. I've also added some cut out pictures of real monkeys for some uhm..realness.


The main colour scheme is green and used foam tape to give height to some of the trees


For the card below, it's a Christian and Sheep themed card. And I actually tried to scour the shops for a past Faith collection from Simple Stories but didn't have much luck though thankfully, I did buy their chipboard stickers prior to this so I managed to come up with something faith related.


I used a polka dot background with white base with some pops of light blue and pink

Various "faith" chipboard stickers are used as embellishments

I hope you like the two cards I've made above. For custom orders please feel free to send me your order queries from the link above this page.

Purple Glittered Heart Explosion Box Card


Purple is a nice rich colour but it's an often overlooked colour. Even when I buy papers, it's quite hard to get this colour as I previously talked about. So normally if there's purple like the one you see below, in polka dots (my fav), I get it for no reason, haha.

So it came in handy when I got asked to do this custom order of an explosion box card in purple. Although I still buy new patterned papers, I cut out pieces from the polka dot one instead of using the whole piece so that I can continue to use it for other projects.

For the purple heart in the centre, it has been awhile since I last used this diecut and I had some leftover purple glittered foam and I used the Maya Road die to cut out this love shape. It's really pretty when you open the box, and then you see this glittered heart.

The rest of the card design is kept simple and usually, if it's not going to be a detailed one, I like to use dies. You can catch sneak peeks of them when you see the pictures below.



I hope you like this purple explosion box card I've made.

Blue Nautical Themed Anniversary Box Card

Nautical themed anniversary box

I haven't done a nautical themed box card for quite a long while although I did keep some stickers and chipboards for future projects. I actually thought of purchasing new decorations but I can't seem to find any. It's quite weird coz this used to be quite easily found but now it's like Disney themes and princess-y themes. Sometimes honestly, the themes can be pretty generic across manufacturers.

Anyway about this project, I was lucky to have bought in the past a 12 X 12 chipboard sticker set. Not all are usable, well at least in my types of projects, but those that are make full sense in this nautical themed box.

I like to mix and match things, rather than just to stick to one element just to go with the flow with the occasion in mind. As this is for an anniversary, you can see hearts of different shapes on each side.

Red Birthday Explosion Box Card with Waterfall Tabs



This is a box card with waterfall tabs but with one more unique feature. One of the tabs come empty but will be later written with messages for the birthday girl. It's nice to have a unique place to keep some memories from the times you spent together as a friend, like in this case, before, during and after marriage and it's evident that through the years, the friendship will just grow stronger.

So this box card is a true commemorative cum birthday gift. It adds sentimental value as you look back as you open the box, an 'explosion' of past memories that you treasure for the rest of your life.


red and black is always a good and strong colour combination to have

Pink Birthday Themed Trifold Card


Hey, I'm back! Sorry for the long absence. I've been overseas and actually, I made this card in the morning, just before I was about to pack my things for my travel.

This is a sweet birthday card in mostly pink colours and I had the perfect journal card from a birthday girl line, I think from Echo Park, and I had cut out the picture of the stack of presents. To balance out, I randomly went through my stickers collections for birthday related things but I found these two gem chipboard stickers.

At first I was thinking how they were going to fit into the theme. However, due to lack of time (coz need to get ready asap), I just tried to incorporate the two together behind the main picture. Not only did they help to balance out the trifold card when it was standing, I thought they added a nice touch to the cover as well.

Red & Black 6 Inches Mini Album "Memories"





This mini album consists of mostly red and black colour scheme but of course, a little bit of gold wouldn't hurt either. I did a similar mini album using a house as the main focus on the cover. To me, it can symbolise a storage of memories which is pretty much what this album will contain.



I like how the black contrasts against the red and to beautify the pages, I chose cut outs and stickers in line with the theme and colour scheme.

Tri Fold Card in Light Blue & Sweet Pastel Colours


I love the dimension the trifold card gives, although traditionally, an actual trifold card or tri-shutter card doesn't look like this actually. I don't really like 'clean lines' and I like my projects to have a layered or shabby look to it.

A sweet card looks even sweeter when using pastel colours and as the journal card I cut out from a patterned paper has a bicycle picture in a sweet pink colour. I added pops of colour at one corner with the banner and hot balloons cut out.  A little gold foiled flower is layered on top of one of the hot air balloon for some interest.

I went a step further by die cutting out some flowers using the leftover scrap papers and added enamel dots on them in the centre.

As the journal card has a lot of empty spaces, I edged the card with glitter. Another way for dimension is to use, let's say, gold embossed powder and heat set them at the edges. Trust me, it will look even more stunning. But let's face it, I'm a lazy crafter.

Oh, for stickers, coz I have loads of them, I added in a sticker tab 'hello life' and a butterfly sticker at another corner.

Mini Album as a Birthday cum Friendship Gift


This is a special post where I'm not being paid for this mini album and it included pictures of me and my friends for a the 1st quarter of the year. It was a birthday gift and honestly, it was supposed to be a  shadow box frame but let's just say I didn't have to buy the box, hehe. I had papers and I had the 6 inches hardcover so why not make a...mini album! It's also fun as I got to make these according to how I wanted it be and also because I get to include photos as well, so decorating it becomes a different process from just using photo mats, sans photos.


As the background and the pictures main colour theme is black, the embellishments are mostly in black too

The caption home sweet home depicted this picture taken at her own condo


I wanted to write the last page but didn't want to spoil with my handwriting so I used a journal card instead.
I did this within the afternoon and I am happy with the final product. I actually looked at another mini album sample in the store and I just loved how everything looked so layered and well placed together.  i tried to replicate it and it got a little hard at first because I had to stretch my creativity a bit. The end result was that it still had my own style but I get to also use some newer layering techniques as well.

I hope you liked this mini album I did and if you're keen on me making one for you, just send me your order queries from the link above.

Shabby Chic Birthday Card



I recently purchased this sticker set which is meant for a French themed card but I loved the rest of the stickers too which honestly is quite a rare thing nowadays. I thought even if I don't get custom orders to make use of those stickers, I would use it for myself. Actually I altered a photo frame and I used some stickers from it. You can see it below and I used it to decorate my office table.

I had this doily die cut from Prima Marketing for a long time but I never get to use it because well, I don't get a chance to make such cards anymore. And now I do, yay!

The stickers were given some dimensions by layering and then I used coordinating patterned papers and cut out the elements. I picked up some tips from a recent class and you can create depth to the picture by layering similar elements together like how I did for the bottom part where I cut out the flowers and layered it on top of each other.

To give it a mixed look, I added paper flowers too at some strategic parts.

Altered frame using a journal card as the focal point and decorated it with stickers and paper flowers

Bundle of Joy Blue Trifold Shutter Card



I like the unique folding of the trifold card and I tend to deviate from the usual type of designing. And for this card, I used mostly a patterned paper that has journal cards with phrases and pictures that can be cut out. I learned a new technique which is cutting out the centre picture leaving the border and then I used another journal card as the main focus of the card. I propped up the frame using foam tape so it looks more 3D looking. For this one, I chose sweet bundle of joy for this baby boy themed trifold card.
