Money Holder and December Classes With Liza Yahya

Hey all,

Take a look at the Money holder that I made using a combination of the Webster's pages Christmas Come On In and My Minds Eye Lost and Found papers. I made a simple envelope with the MME paper.

I chose my favourite door and cut out the architrave as well as the door leaf ( leave left side uncut ) . Scored the left side of the door and left the door open to show "to" and "from" tag.

The center stage flower is made by crinkling a red organza and gluing it at the back of the polka dot flower.

And owh.. please don't forget to enroll for December's Mini Album Class - " A True Story ". It's a fun album using Pink Paislee's Daily Junque papers. Learn about layerings and making pockets and special folds and case binding. " True Story " Workshop 1 will take place on Thursday 1st December at 4:00 pm. That's this Thursday..come join the fun :))))

Another workshop that I have specially prepared for kids during this holiday is an accordian mini album inspired by Jaz Lee canopies :) - " Best Buds ". Hurry moms..enroll your children in this workshop and hit the spa or get a hairdo after sending them :))) The 1st Class for "Best Buds " starts Friday 9th December 11:00 am - 2:00 pm. If you can't make it on this date, do contact Papier for another time okay.

Lovin those owls...woot woot!!

Mini Tag Album

Currently i am all about tags and pockets. Anything and everything i created recently will incorporate this two elements. With the remaining papers from Webster Pages i created this Mini Tag Album. The size is 4'x4' and using my Sizzix Tag dies i cut out my photos and tags. 

The pockets is easy to create, basically i just glue the side and bottom part of the borders. I find embellishing a small mini to be the fun part because it doesn't take a lot. A stickers, buttons and lace is all i need. Those Melissa Frances tags is too gorgeous to ignore! lol.

Have a good week everyone and don't forget to check our up coming classes! :)))

"Family" layout by Liza Yahya

Hellooo friends,
It's my turn today to inspire you..yes! It's very lacy and lacy. The sweet pink paper by Melissa Frances goes in harmony with my photo. I punched it using my favourite MS punch and placed the frame on top.  

I applied primer on the IKEA frame. To make it more fun..I simply placed some lace from my stash and applied gesso again..I just love the effects.

Some of the laces and the cute doll are gifts from friends. Thank you y'all..I really treasure them. That's why they are on this LO.

A close-up on the multi-levels of layering : )

I let the lace wonder and drop from the frame..

I hope you like this lacy entry by me. Toodles and have a great crafty week ahead : )

Studio Inspiration - by Moon Sia

Hello all,

I was tidying my work space and through my craft supplies and it dawned on me that its really important to have an organized space for the supplies.  Not just any space, but a really organised space be it huge or small.  

Here's a wonderfully organised studio, which I'd love to share with you.  I'm truly envious of the space & the storage possibilities.  I would definitely love to craft in a room like that!! 

 Photo courtesy of Moon Sia.  Thank you for sharing this studio inspiration. 

To our readers, we would definitely love to hear from you, whether you have a comment, project or studio inspirations such as this.  Please send your comments or email us at papierlove@gmail.com or kartzplus@yahoo.com

Be inspired
Macy =)

20 Ideas to Celebrate!

here's another Wednesday moodling to inspire you.  'Merry Christmas' by Wah. 

Love the sparkly snowman? Using glass glitters by Melissa Frances, add that special texture and glitter effect to your snowmen & other die-cuts to give that 3D look & feel.  Even a simple coat (or two) of Glossy Accent (Ranger) can make those words pop.  What's stopping you from making something simple BUT special this Christmas? 

Stay tuned for more...

                                                       Whn in Rome, do what the Romans do,
                                               At Papier, do what the designers do,
                                                                                    Think out of the box!  That will definitely do!

Thank You Card and Altered Box Workshop Pics

Hi all,.
My November DT kit is full of surprises..wink wink of what to come, bright and cheerful as can be : )  I've decided to start a small project first..kinda save the best for last.

My SLICE machine came in handy..I used "Bravissimo" design card to cut the bazzill card and paper. Next I punched the Melissa Frances paper using my favourite Martha Stewart puncher. I cut out small pieces of corrugated board to layer all of my embellies. They work wonders! The last layering is my Melissa Frances Tag - "Aunt Bea", Walla..

Owh I would like to share some joy that I had, teaching Altered Box Workshop last Saturday. What a blast!! Our hands got really dirty with gesso and texture paste. My left hand looked like Troll's as a result of Tattered Angels spray mist and I even spotted some gesso on my cheeks ! Here are some photos..of my brave and talented students in action. We had a light moment when Elaine had to pickup an urgent call, first with her earlobe on the phone which was on the table ..then on speaker phone.. since all of her ten fingers had gesso on them... LOL

Shirley, Ruby and Elaine .." I know how to do this..easy peasy lemon squeasy"

Aini : " I think this alpha suits betta.."
Yuz : " Oooh yes, done that , check. Nice eh ! "

Look at the completed boxes by my students Aini, Elaine, Ruby, Shirley and Yuz. They are just awesome! I'm a proud duck : )

 I am sooo happy that they have completed the boxes in time and with style !

 I hope you gals had fun as much as I did, thank you so much from the bottom of my heart and hope to see yall again in the upcoming workshops.

p/s  We miss you Jas..hope you are well now and hope to see you soon : )

Blooming With Sweetness Layout By AK

I'm sure there's plenty of Webster Pages fans out there! For my Nov Dt kit i've decided to play up my feminine side and pack on the blooms. Yes i find that when working with WP there is nothing minimalist about my layout. Layering is a must and I can't help but to sneak in a bit of tulle, ribbons and gems. Stamping on transparencies is also my all time fav's. I'm sure you can spot the butterfly! lol.

If you like the designers to showcase their work with any lines from a manufacturer kindly drop us a comment/note. We would love to take up the challenge! You can also email us if you fancy to see a certain technique on a layout or altered project. Dont worry we dont bite and yes it's always great to get a feedback from our readers and members.

Check back soon for more inspirations. Have a good week everyone! :)

Material lists
Webster Pages Pattern Papers, Cardstocks, Hero Arts Lace, Doilies, Prima Flowers, Tim Holtz Dies, Tulle, Ribbon, Pearl Strand, Mini Spool, Buttons, Melissa Frances Tags, TH Tissue Tape, Stanzon Ink, Distress Ink.

Swatch Book by Emeline

Howdy folks,

Here's a 'lil pretty inspiration from Emeline.  A swatch book for safekeeping of ideas & techniques. 

For those who attended Emeline's workshop last year, you will know that Emeline is talented at matching & layering various embellishments, and she works very well with different mediums and painting techniques.  Come join us next week, as she teaches us new ways to explore with mediums such as beeswax, paste, artists sands and more.  Don't miss out on the special workshops with most of the materials specially ordered from Singapore including the wooden box (musical box) & mechanism, and the baroque frames and more. 

Ask about Emeline Seet's workshops coming Saturday, 19th November 2011. 

Happy crafting!
