'Cute' Layout By Amelia Khalik

Happy Chinese New Year, Gong Xi Fa Cai. I am sure by now most of my chinese friends are done with their shopping and perhaps some are on their way back to hometown.

Big news! For the month of fab feb we have 'catch me if you can' kit from Papier. If you'd like to know the story behind that name pls read previous entry. lol. Everything is so well put together by Papier big boss 'Macy'. i challenged myself to create as much as i can from the feb line. In the end i came up with 4 layouts, 1 mini album and 2 cards and still there is plenty left! This is a real value for money and you'll be amazed at the gorgeous papers, stamp and embellishments.

So without further delay, please find my first layout that i titled 'cute'. Who else is better to adorn this page than my sweet lil princess! lol. Like i said before, the 'lost n found' pp are too beautiful to be cut so i decided to play with embellishment and keep the pattern paper as it is. A very straight forward piece, i love those blooms and against the black background the pink just shout for attention.

Look out for my next entry in a couple of days. Because i was having so much fun i have to post twice in a week to reveal the whole project!  All i can say is...grab your kit fast!! Only limited quantities available. and a sneak peek of what's coming next!

Just be 'you' LO by Rosa

Hey hey! Its 25111 today. This weekend I'll be going away for a short break and to attend my cousin's wedding. Before I forget, I wanna wish (in advance) my scrapping friends "Gong Xi Fa Cai". Am sure they are busy with the preparations. To my other scrapping buddies, enjoy the CNY break.

Lets move on to my DT project for this week. I'm loving Jenni Bowlins pp. Bright and beautiful designs. For this week, I scrapped pictures of my daughter, latest pictures of her. She's also my best friend, I am thankful to have her. We are very close, we can talk about anything. Its that special bond that we share together. Gonna miss her loads when she goes to Uni!

My baby girl is all grown up! She's very tall, taller than me!

I stamped using Prima Clear stamps and embossed it with the Zing (Aqua) Embossing Powder. The flowers, leaves and shapes are cut out with my Slice.

She's sweet....

and independent too...

I embossed the transparencies using the cuttlebug embossing folder and swipe it with StazOn. For the tag, I cut it out with my slice and stamp on it.

'A daughter is a little girl who grows up to be a friend'. This is so true!

I cut out the flowers, leaves and shapes with my Slice. Thats my version of handmade flowers.

Hope you like it. To all, happy crafting!

Slice Design Card : Animal Crackers, Paper Reverie, Noteworthy.

Materials used: Jenni Bowlin pp, Making Memories pp, Prima Clear stamps, Zing Embossing Powder (Aqua), Rhinestone, Ice Stickles, Bazzil Star Borders, MS Puncher, American Crafts alphabet.

Hello all. Did you have a great weekend? I bet! Mine was spend hibernating in my room completing 4 layouts and 1 mini album. Yup, that's how crazy i can get sometimes! You'll be seeing the project soon for Feb. I cant wait to share but it'll have to wait! lol.

For this week and my last layout for January, i tried something different than my usual style. Plenty of embossing going on. I used the Kraft Paper Doilies to make the red flowers. I trim the edges of the doilies to get the petals and heat embossed with Zinc embosing powder in chili red. It was bright alright!! lol. The leaves are fussy cut from Webster Pages Pattern Paper and i add crackle paint randomly.

Till next week, have a productive day! :))

'Growing Up Together' LO by Rosa

Hello Crafters! How's your 2011 so far? I've been very busy with the kids & schooling matters. To my fellow crafters, very sorry for not being able to leave some luv at your blog, will try to do it soon.

Dunno about you, but I always avoid busy pp, especially the ones with big patterns / designs on it. However, for this month I've got the Jenni Bowlin pp in my kit and one of it is with big flowers. This is what I did.

This month is all about keeping it simple. Yup, am trying my best to keep it simple and clean, although am itching to stamp here and there.

I used plain cs as the base, cut out the big flowers from the pp and paste it to the corners. The wordings is cut out from the Slice Design Card.

Stamp 'Photo Facts' onto a plain cs and ink it with distress ink.

Add stickles to some part of the flowers & wordings. I stamped a lil bit around the flowers using versamark.

Till then, happy crafting! Oh, don't forget to check out the new arrivals at Papier. Yummy stamps and papers!

Slice Design Card : Word & expressions -Family.

Materials used: Jenni Bowlin pp, Plain cs, KaiserCraft Clear stamps, Ice Stickles, Distress Ink.

'Making Memories' Layout by Amelia Khalik

Happy monday all. I hope the week will start beautifully for you. Another monday posting by moi. This time it's all about me and making memories! lol. Have you been in a situation where you're running out of ideas for your layout title? That happens to me many times. On certain days i wish i could just leave it blank! lol and then an idea came. I was staring at the Making Memories packaging and decided to name my layout just that! Hahaha. Yup on certain days i feel like a

Okay let's get on with this layout, a bit of scrappy info. I think Webster Pages Pattern Paper is so versatile. Use it any way you want and the result will not dissapoint. Since i had a busy background i decided to stamp using the bubble wrap randomly on the page with red distress ink. Again i re-used the Prima packaging on the back of the photo. Kraft paper doilies makes great embellishment.

On your next project try to recycle some of the packaging. Dont throw it yet, it might come handy one of these days..:).

Cutie Layout

Happy Happy New Year dearies!!! :) It's been a fab year for me so far (lol..though there are many more months to come) and I hope it's been the same for you! :) I'm a simple gurl with simple needs (though scrapbooking supplies are nothing close to that hehe) and thus very simple resolutions were made as well..:) Those hard to keep ones are better not made rite? :0)'s a layout for Papier and this round I'm using Cosmo Cricket for the background! The colours are cheery and fun so it's comes as no surprise that I scrapped my gurl's pic yet again ;)

The rest of the embellies are basically fussy cutting of My Little Shoebox Patterned Papers & Cosmo Cricket too. There's also a sheet of Vintage music notes and cut out Graphic 45 Patterned Paper as well as American Crafts Thickers and a wee bit of stitching.

I'm sure everyone loves Webster Pages, moi included and i squirm with delight to have it in my Jan kit. The papers are fab and i just need to enhanced my layout with a bit of cutting from another piece of Pattern paper.

Another great way to get a 3D effects on my page is by using dies. You can see i'm using the Tim Holtz Tattered Floral dies and the Sizzix dies for the flowers and butterflies. I've said this before but i'm gonna say it again..Prima packaging is awesome! lol. Can you spot them in my lo? The AC Thickers is a left over from my Dec kit and finally i slap on a generous amount of crackle paint on the edges of the paper.

Material lists, Webster Pages 'Sprinkles' and 'Sugar Plum Tree' Pattern Paper, Prima Packaging, TH Dies Tattered Floral, Sizzix Dies Roll Flowers, Distress Ink, Making Memories Gems & Brads and AC Thickers.
