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 'em cause it comes with co-ordinating borders that don't make me go scrambling for border punches!! *lol*..so 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.
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
Altered Notebook : Basic Grey PP, Ribbons, Lace, Handmade flowers, Moof Rhinestone, Making Memories Metal Charm, Prima & Kaisercraft flowers.

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!
Materials used: MM Flutter pp, MM Vintage Findings pp, Crate Paper pp, Plain cs, Glitz Stickles, Ice Stickles, Black StazOn.
Slice design card: Wedding, Seasons

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!
