Wowee! Thanks to the enthusiasm & the excitement you brought to us at Papier yesterday, the PCM party was a success!! Hats off to the Papier team, the DT team (Amelia, Sharm & Rosa) who assisted in our make-n-take, and Teacher Jessy (our RD), who organised and had the wonderful games session with all who participated. Also congratulations to all our RAK winners, Lucky Draw winner(who took home a Quickutz Squeeze Starter Kit) & Best Dressed cum Top Spender Winner - Elaine Chong. Elaine takes home a Sizzix Big Shot!!

For the past few weeks, the team at Papier have been busy getting ready for the big day. From the party tokens, e-mail invitations, in-store displays and decos, even to the goodie bags, each of these were carefully handmade with love or had a personal touch to make these extra special.

Perhaps you made a new craft friend along the way, or discovered new craft interests among each other, liked the goodie bag, got a few bargains, enjoyed the company or simply enjoyed the refreshments, whichever the reason, we hope you enjoyed the event as much as we did.

Once again, we sincerely thank you, our loyal Papier members (PCMs & VPCMs) for your continuous support as you have been giving us, and hope that you will continue to allow us to service you in the future and we welcome any feedback for future improvements. We apologise to some of you whom we may have missed out and will take this opportunity to step up customer communications going forward.

Last but not least, I would like to extend my heartfelt appreciation to the Papier team (Wah, Amie, Zainun & Peck Ling), for all their hard work and efforts and their great teamwork which made this event possible. A special thank you also goes to Making Memories who sponsored some goodie bag items. Hip Hip Hooray!

I love making cards...I do love scrapbooking and altered arts as well...but Card making has got to be my first's another card I whipped up using Papier's DT project kit..You just gotta love those Sassafras Lass PPs don't you! :)

I love 'em cause it comes with co-ordinating borders that don't make me go scrambling for border punches!! *lol* yeah..there's your tip!

Tip 2 : Dab plain looking flowers with distress inks (you can also use crackle paint! gives a nice touch ;)) to give a little bit of shade.

Materials Used : Sassafras Lass Patterned Paper, Cosmo Cricket Tiny Types Stickers, Ribbon, Prima Flowers, Purple Onion Designs Butterfly Stamp, Prima Crystal.

Scrappy Info:
1) Cut out your cardstock to a 6 x 6 measurement
2) Cut the border out from the patterned paper.
3) Cut the remaining patterned paper to a 5.8 x 5.8 measures (so that you have a teeny border made up of the cardstock)
3) Cut the border to exact proportions and place them on the top & bottom of the card
4) Stamp butterfly image. Cut out & affix to the card
5) Place the sentiment on a plain cardstock using foam dots (for dimension) and cut while forming a small border. Affix to card.
6) Ink flower with distress ink & affix bling.
7) Using other remaining flowers, create a small foliage.

I've also two other projects to share with you sweeties..It's an altered notebook (altered to be a diary) with a matching card!

Materials Used :
Card : Basic Grey PP,Prima & Kaisercraft Flowers, Chipboard Sentiment, White Satin Ribbon, Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch

Card by Rosa

Hola! This week I did a simple card using Slice.

This is a simple card created with Slice. It's amazing what you can do with Slice.

- Select a shape, place the Slice onto the card base, (place it in the middle or wherever you want) & cut.

- cut out the same shape in different sizes from another pp, layer them with double sided tape for a raised effect.

It's that simple!

A Layout & A Card

Happy Tuesday!
It's the series of a layout and a card again... finally after such a long hiatus! LOL! Previously, I have shown you some simple "recipe" I have used to create my projects and this round ... this is probably the simplest among all.

I created this layout called "Our Love Blossomz".
All I used was a Bazzill cardstock and an Echo Park patterned paper.

I created my own background by using scrip stamp and mists.

My all time fav tool is my Cutterbee scissors. I love cutting papers and rearrange the fussy cutting image onto my layout. What I love to do next is to give the image some dimension by using glue dots/foam dots.

{Heart} all my American Crafts Thickers. Lovely treatment to my title!!
Punches like Martha Stewart butterfly is awesome addition to this flowery layout.

The balance of the Echo Park patterned paper I decided to create a card.
Using the same formula: cut and 3D.

See the "life is good" quote? That is the Echo Park's collection name. I cut it out at the edge of the patterned paper. I thought that is a great title for my card especially with the cheery colors. Don't you think so?

See you in November with new projects!!
Xoxo Jessy

"A Girl Layout & A Voucher/Gift Card" by Amelia Khalik

Happy Monday everyone!!! I hope you guys had a great weekend and it’s back to work for some. Today I have not one but two project to share here. It’s going to be a long post so beware…thehehe.

First up is this layout of my girl. A bit of scrappy info, since my background pp is busy with colours and design I decided to layer it with a mono colour pp from Basic Grey paper doilies. I choose to use a black & white photo of Allysha in order to make it stand out from the background. The rest of the page is decorated with buttons, flowers and blings.

Material lists, Basic Grey Cupcake pp, Basic Grey Laser cut Paper Doilies, Prima Flowers, Bling Butterfly, Buttons, KCK Chipboard Glittering Embellishment and MM Glitter Bling Stickers.

Second project is a Voucher/Gift card. Sometimes I find it difficult to choose a gift for weddings, house warming or birthdays and I think it is only best that I send the receiver a voucher instead. With that in mind I decided to share this simple 2 in 1 card. Two slot, one for a note and voucher on the other.

My card size is 5’ x 8’ I used the 12’ x 12’ cardstock. Please see illustration below, pls note this is not a template, I sketch it just to give a clearer picture of how I cut and score my card. It’s entirely up to you to have the card in whatever sizes you prefer. Glue the edges and the card will look something like this. Decorate to your liking.

Material lists, Blue Cardstock, Lace Ribbon, Buttons, KCK Chipboard Glittering Sticker, Basic Grey pp, Fancy Pants pp, Martha Stewart Puncher and MM Glitter Bling Sticker.

So there you have it, my two project in one entry. Till next Monday, have a good week..:)

"Altered Frame" by Sharm

Hey ladies!! It's me, Sharm here again to share a lil something this week...I'm sure lots n lots of you sweeties have things lying around that you've often wondered what to do with. Simple, alter them into something that's crafty, eye catching & of course usable *lol*..Today I'd like to share a simple altered frame that was completed in a mere 15 minutes!

Materials Used: Wooded Frame from IKEA, Kaisercraft Patterned Paper, Prima Flowers, Prima Say It With Pearls, Vintage Button

A simple step-by-step tutorial:

1) Remove the glass & cardboard panel.
2) Place the frame to face downwards into the white side of the patterned paper
3) Trace the outer lines of the frame & the area where you are to place the photo.
4) Using a sharp craft knife, cut along those lines & remove the centre.
5) Stick to the frame using UHU glue or other strong craft glue.
6) Embellish to your heart's content.

If your patterned paper has lots of details (like this one), try not crowd it with too much embellishments. Use minimal! ;)

I like using pearl or crystals to give it that lil bling ;) Try it, you might like it!

"Raya" Layout & Altered Utilities Holder by Rosa

Hi! It's wednesday and today I have 2 projects to share with you. It's a simple project that I created using my beloved Slice.

My first project - 12x12 layout.

For the base, I used Crate Paper pp. To further enhance the base pp, I stamped the background with Hero Arts stamp using Encore Metalic Gold inkpad & added Ice stickles. For the side borders, I used Martha Steward punch.

To create this flower, cut out two different sizes of flowers.

- To create the large flower: Cut out the flower from the Slice Wedding design card & emboss it with cuttlebug embossing folder. Spray some Smooch Pearlized Spray Ink, use a sponge & dab the Ink all over it to cover the entire flower. Swipe the emboss area with Pearlescent Sky Blue Brilliance Pigment Ink.

- To create the small flower: Cut out the flower from the Slice Wedding design card & again using the same technique as above, spray & dab the ink all over the flower. Swipe all over it with embossing ink pad & add some clear embossing powder onto it, heat it with your heat gun. Let it cool, then stamp on it with black solvent ink.

- Cut out the flourishes from the Slice Basic 3 design card. Ink it with Amber Satin Color Box pigment brush pad. Stick them together & add a small button in the middle & sparkle it up with Glitz stickles.

Visit my blog HERE to view more pictures.

Materials Used : Slice Wedding, Basic 3 & Studio Essentials design card, Crate Paper Little Sprout Collection pp, Crate paper Cottage Collection pp, Dear Lizzy + American crafts pp, Dark brown cs, Martha Steward puncher, Cuttlebug embossing folder, Smooch Pearlized Spray Ink, Clear embossing powder, Hero Arts stamp, , Distress Ink, Encore Metalic Gold inkpad, Brilliance Pigment Ink, Solvent Ink, Ice stickles, Glitz stickles & Buttons.

My second project - altered utilities holder.

Last week I did a 'paperless' altered clipboard. This week I altered this utilities holder but its not paperless. It's 100% using Slice. It's really simple and easy to do.

- Select the pattern from Slice design card, set the size & cut it.

- Jazz it up with stickles, distress ink, chalk, LePlume marker and embossing powder.

- Put the cut out patterns together, layer them on top of each other.

This is the outcome. Simple and I like it. I use it to put my phone and it is also my mini ribbon holder.

Visit my blog HERE for more close-up pictures of this project.

That's all from me this week. Hope you like it. I'll be back again next week wednesday. Till then, tata titi tutu....

Note: If you know how to position the Slice, you will save a lot of paper!

Materials used: mm flutter pp, Crate Paper pp, Plain cs, Ice stickles, Glitz stickles, StazOn, Rhonna Farrer double scroll clear stamp, Pebbles Inc Chalk Kit, LePlume Marker.

Slice design card: Wedding, Noteworthy, Basic 3, Basic 1 and Vintage Findings.

"Two Love Birds" Layout by Jessy Christopher

Hello crafters!! It's Jessy in the house again. Today, I'd like to show you a layout that I created using simple "recipe" again!!

This layout is pretty easy to assemble. All you need is to do some cutting, get the right embellies and fonts. That's all! Told ya it's simple rite?

Prima vines are lovely to use and it is so easy to play with it. You can bend, twist the vines to suit your arrangement on your layout or projects.

Don't you love that beautiful peacock?
I fussy cut the clock, peacock and the pretty
roses from a Webster's Pages paper.

I am thankful I found my love bird "ancient years" ago!!
Believe it or not, I knew Mr.Handsome since I was 7 years old. LOL!!

Materials used are available at the store:
Echo Park patterned paper
Webster's Pages patterned paper
Prima flower vine
