Butterfly Themed Birthday Box Card in Pastel Colours



I loved this box for one thing, how I designed the box cover. I was shown a graphics illustration picture with some butterflies and I took the inspiration from there. Actually, I didn't know exactly how to approach it but somehow the idea flowed slowly as I put the elements together.

For the inside panels, I remembered last time how I designed them differently than now. It was honestly more work but I wanted to do the same. Sometimes not overthinking helped as well. You just have to trust yourself and design it to the best that you can.


I had some big butterfly die cuts that honestly, I didn't know how best to use them since I don't do scrapbooking of layouts. It's actually quite big for a card too but for this, I somehow managed to use them and you can take a peek at the layer below how I layered each butterfly with another die cut.

For pastel colours, I liked to use light blue, light yellow and purple. Sometimes I use pink but this time, I decided to use purple as the accent colour.






I hope you liked this box card that I did. For custom orders, please feel free to send me your order queries.

Bridal Themed 6 Inches Mini Album


I had some leftover stickers and embellishments that are wedding related and currently, there's very little collections in the stores so I thought why not used what I have for this bride-to-be themed mini album. I loved the colour combination of grey, blush pink and white. I also fussy cut out the word wedding from a 3X4 inches journal card, which is a perfect size for this, 6 x 6 inches mini album.

I honestly didn't know where to place the rather large pink flower but I wanted it to create an accent to the page. Some flowers here and there helped to beautify the page a bit. I also punched out some small hearts from gold glittered paper.

As the pages will be meant for polaroids, I carefully placed some embellishments here and there, mostly at the corners, all wedding or romance related of course.

Wedding Congratulatory Card in Black & White with Pops of Blush Pink


For this wedding themed bridal congratulatory card, I wanted it to be in mostly black and white coloured theme, inspired by the black and white flower patterns from Maggie Holmes Carousel collection. But to add some contrast, I also used blush pink colours in random spots. The cake sticker forms the central focus of the card and I layered it on top of a tag and leftover scrapbooking paper in a black and white polka dot pattern, perfect as the card base.



I didn't buy any new wedding related supplies except for the background paper. To give the flowers a bit of dimension, I added foam tape and layered it with some cut out doilies from another patterned paper.

To finish off the card, I added some silver sequins, which come to think of it, I should have used gold instead, lol. I punched out some mini butterflies too for some added embellishment.

I hope you like this wedding themed card I have made. For order queries, please feel free to send me your order queries from the side bar.

Just for You Happy Birthday Box Card


Just as I thought I had spent some significant time on designing the box panels, I have to make the box cover and then I basically put together random stickers and embellishment with similar colours to form a collage.



For the inner panels, I paired up pink and black with colourful polka dots together. I also cut out a star and a balloon from gold glittered paper so it will 'pop' even more against the dark background.


Here's a close up of the paper cake that I have made using my favourite black and white polka dot patterned paper.

This was a pretty simple box card though I don't know I felt like I took forever to make it, lol. Sometimes I admit I need to be a little faster in making them but of course, I won't compromise on the quality.

I hope you like this pink and black box card I have made. For custom orders, please feel free to send me your order queries :)

Beautiful Memories Loved Themed Mini Album


I actually find it easier when I have photos to work with when decorating the inner pages of this mini album. From the pics, you can also get inspired by the choice of embellishments to bring out the essence of the pictures. Here I played around with the colours, blue, black and white. I used leftover scrapbook papers to form layers for the photos and decorated with loved themed stickers, the sticker sheet from Maggie Holmes Carousel collection and 12X12 sticker sheet from Simple Stories Beautiful collection which honestly, is one of my favourites from them.



Again, I like to decorate the opposite pages similarly to make it more aligned.



Sometimes I will have leftover diecuts from previous projects such as these hearts cut out from gold glitter paper. Instead of throwing, I used them for these pages below.



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

Specially for You Cute Cartoon Couple Picture Card



I know sometimes my card looks so simplistic, haha..compared to my earlier days when I started making cards. I kinda like cleaner looking cards now, but still love layers just as much and play around with the colour scheme.

Being creative also means not boxing yourself in a certain type of design only. Keep your mind open for new types of design from various crafters or designers and you may learn new perspectives. Mixing in pops of colours or colourful patterned papers with smaller designs against a neutral coloured background help to give the main design a focal point. I got this picture of a couple off the internet and somehow, I got it at the right size because I actually left the picture at my workplace, hehe. If you've been working with cards for awhile, you can get roughly estimate how big the picture is and how much space is required. It's trial and error. If can't fit, I just re-print a new one, problem solved.

One of the things worth investing in is alpha stickers. I got this alpha sticker book at a discount and I like how cheap it was and also how each type of sticker design is different and in different sizes. Sometimes I buy my stuffs from local book stores, than the fancier papercrafting stores because it can be cheaper, provided I like the designs.

I hope you like the card I've made! For custom orders, please feel free to send me your order queries from the side bar.

Stitch Character Pop Up Birthday Card


I was actually a bit doubtful about making this pop up card but it was not as if I had never made it before. So I didn't reject it and started to think through on how I can make this card. Lastly, I didn't want to overcomplicate things and did a little research to recall on making a simple pop up. It didn't take me long to find a website and even though it was a simple pop up mechanism, she did such amazing job with her creativity. So based on her ideas, I came up with what you see above, two Stitch figures with a heart in the centre.

The only thing I need to be a little more careful is the spaces in between where I cut the double lines to form the pop up mechanisms. It needs a little planning as well so that they don't look too cramp or too spaced out.


lightly decorated cover with a polaroid die cut frame in pink and blue swirls


I kept the cover design pretty simple and I don't know if you notice but I seem to like using frames such as this cute polaroid frame which comes in a diecut pack from Maggie Holmes Carousell collection which I honestly love. The colours seem to coordinate well with the colours on Stitch. I did some simple layering of patterned papers, cut a doily into two and arrange them together with the papers.

For the embellishments, I concentrated on the bottom layer. Again, I used a die cut from the same pack, I think, and then decorated at the corners. I should really stock up on these really cute enamel dots again. It's pretty hard to get them in pretty pastel colours. Oh, and then I added a little wood chip heart to finish off the card.

I hope you like this card I have made.

Anniversary Box Card in Pale Pink and Love Themed Chipboard Stickers


Sometime I hit the jackpot with choosing the right colour combination. This was an unusual colour, pale pink with white dots, that I paired up with red and black. 

For the sides, I did some decorations mainly using chipboard thinkers in various shapes from Crate Paper and mini phrases. I liked how the mixture of mostly small and medium sizes make it easier to layer. For the background, I die cut two hexagon shapes using leftover scrapbooking paper and then layered chipboard elements on top of them so they look more grounded.





For the box cover, I hand cut a pretty large heart using a swiss dot red paper. Then layered it with a 'love' wood chip, cut out a flower image in black and white from a patterned paper and then end off with some die cut hearts cut out from a Champagne coloured glitter paper. A mixture of elements of various materials give the box cover an interesting look.

Celebrate Friendship & Love Explosion Box Cards


I have made a few box cards recently and here I featured two of them. The one above had two pop up hearts and honestly, trying to make them stand up was quite difficult, lol. For the two side decors, I kept it quite simple using love themed chipboard stickers. The background colours of black and brown complimented each other and really made the red hearts stood out more.




This was a rather special box incorporating the friend's favourite boyband and their pictures together. The black polka dotted 3D cake was made in celebration of her birthday.




I used the diecut, sticker and sequin stars from the latest collection of Maggie Holmes for Crate Paper called Carnival. When I first saw the preview of her collections in Instagram, it was something that I must get.

For the box cover, because gold was part of the choice of colours, I used the diecut frame with gold swirls. Honestly it was so pretty. Then I finished it off with the 'celebrate' sticker and a wood star from Kaisercrafts. To fill in the gap of the frame in the centre, I diecut a round scallop doily with black scrap patterned paper.

I hope you like the two box cards that I have made.

Lovely & Hello Gorgeous Cards


These layered cards were made recently for two ladies and I used a single patterned paper to make the background and I actually thought I would get different patterns when I cut. Actually they turned out to be identical, yay! I just updated the stash inside my plastic bag of papers by throwing out those that I don't need at all. I know other crafter have such nice storage for these papers and organised them so well based on colours, patterns, manufacturers etc etc..while mine is just in a regular store plastic bag, haha. 

But I use them every day and well, so many of them fall off the radar of paper crafting that even their expensive bigshot machines are hardly used now. One of thing though, I am into paper crafting as a hobby and as a means of making some side income, if you don't already know. 

Before I go off tangent, you can see the cards in separate pictures below.



As I was rummaging my stash, I saw this journal card from Prima Marketing and I thought that it would make such a nice focal point for a card. As for the stickers, they were from a 12 X 12 sticker sheet from Photo Play. I tried to create layers with the stickers by cutting them into and placed them in different spots or layered them on top of each other for a pop of 3D.

It needed something extra in the background so I diecut a leftover white scrap paper with a mixed media thinlit.



This card has a little bit more of a layered look but I mostly kept the layering at one side. For some extra dimension, I used a chipboard sticker crown to adorn the 'hello gorgeous sticker.' It may look like a strange combination but somehow it worked, haha. Because I wanted to give this card a little bit of a Diva appeal.

I hope you like these two cards that I have made. For custom orders, please feel free to send me your order queries from the side bar or the links above.
