Papier Photo A Day (PAD) Jan 2013

It's the eve of New Year, have you got your resolution set? Frankly mine is more like go with the flow kinda thing but in the end i'm glad all my vision for 2012 materialized. 

For a start in 2013 i vowed to finish my Project Life. Yes i abandoned mine half way through 2012. lol. So to kick start my PL I've decided to stick to photo a day inspirations. Our very own PL Dt, Yuzz Yusof is kind enough to provide a list for Jan 2013. It's very interesting and you can definitely interpret it as creative as you can.

Here's the list.

Enjoy 2013 everyone! :)

My December Project Life Pages

Hello! Everyone...
I am so delighted to share with you the first few pages of my Project Life for December 2012. It has been done about  a week ago, when I was asked by our RDA to show my December Project Life, I was thinking of the latest pages but ohhh boy, I am running out of cartridge and photo papers. Hence, my post today are the pages of the early month of December.

Previously, my PL was done using the 12 x 12 pocket sleeves, since Papier has a variety of Project Life sleeves I looked no further to try all kind of sleeves this time around. Below is the first introduction page of my December Project Life.

the first page, I used "Design I" sleeve

the 2nd page

My PL for 2012 was done monthly not weekly, hence I will make sure I have a special sleeve for that particular month.  Here a close-up for my December 2012.

the 3rd page, I used "Design H" sleeve and my washi tape are just perfect to hide those not a perfect photo taken and to avoid the content of my sleeves from slipping out.  You can spot those bits of washi tapes in my PL pages.

the 4th page, nothing fancy but I love to take picture daily, hence 90% of my PL has my daily routine pictures. Be it at home, with friends and etc.  On another note, 90% of my journal in my Project Life are typed using my "vintage typewriter".  I just loves the "typewriter font" but a bit of effort and kind of something different to me.

the 5th page of my PL, I used "Design F" sleeve.
A picture of my altered book pages that was done by my scrap buddies. You know who you are and thank you guys, I am over the moon with all the pages.

the 6th page of my PL

some close-up, not all pockets filled with photo but try to put some sentiments or just a simple and nice patterned paper will do.  Picture above is a simple die cut that was cut using Cameo.
"JOURNEY" - for me it means these are my "DECEMBER JOURNEY" 

another close-up, I also used some nice doily and glitter paper for this as I wanna show both pictures on the right and left next to the doily represent "pictures of loves". Love to her cousin and love and bonding between "mom and her dear daughter"

That is how I do my Project Life, there is no limit - lets get inspired and start and grab your first Project Life kit from Papier now. There are plenty of kits, binders, sleeves, adds on and etc to choose from.  Trust me you will fall in love!  

Lets treasure every moment and documents your daily or monthly routine through Project Life, you will be smiling 10 years later if you gets to flip through your Project Life album together with your family.  

To have a look at my Project Life pages, drop by at Papier and don't forget to register for your next Project Life crop sessions with us.  Check out for more details at Papier today.

Happy Project Life-ing!

Layout - 'You are the song in my heart'

Happy Monday, Merry Christmas & Happy Holiday's everyone! It's gonna be a merry and joyous occasion no doubt. I'm excited just thinking about the holidays. For now i'm back with my normal posting. 

Sharing yet another layout using Bo Bunny pattern papers, Kraft Cardstock, Prima Flowers, Mists, Prima Chipboards, Lace, Stamps and Prima Blings. I prep the background using pattern papers and gesso after which i stamp randomly on the pages. A little mess here and there and i'm good to go! lol.

I've decided to share something different with you peeps next year. I figure out that i should let our lineup of Dt's for 2013 to bombard this blog with their amazing creations and creativity and guess what? yours truly decided to embark on Project Life instead! Is that good news? lol. Looks like i have to submerged myself totally to the new task. 

Will you wait for my first page? I hope you'll stay around. This could be pretty exciting. See you soon! :)

Magical Photo Frame

Hi, Mee Foon here again.   Today, I decided to attempt a little magic.  I came across this simple and yet elegant photo frame in Ikea but thought it was such a waste to house only a photo in it.   
So, a little help from the magical drill and a few metal parts, I turned the back easel panel into a door.  
And then, poof! The photo frame became a keepsake box.

This photo frame will house the wonderful memories of the time I worked in London.

The back panel which contains the easel is transformed into a door.

And it opens out to an album.   Hopefully, this gives you an idea on maximizing your investment on the photo frame.   My next attempt is to create some "pop-up" embellishments for my current in-progress album.  Do join me in my next update on 2nd of January 2013 for ideas to zest up the mini album.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year !!!!!

A "Jurassic" layout


Hello there! It's my time to share my latest artwork using Papier's DT kit for this month and I have given it a title the " Jurassic" Layout.

I have used 3 patterned papers here of different designs and all are shades of brown / orange. The lowest layer was actually filled with white dots and I have applied my gelatos onto all the dots of several colours and lastly sprayed water and mix. Then, I stamped random designs using archival ink onto it.

I wanted to make the layout look "jurasically" aged (lol! Is there such word? Jurasically??) hence started to be too adventurous with my clear gel paste (Liquitex), coloured sprays (Dylusions, Colour wash by Ranger), distress inks, mica flakes and a whole lot of everything else.. Lol!

Let's just say, it's OK to experiment even if some things are totally new or something that you are used to. Add this with that and it's all a guess on how it would turn out later. I love experimenting for there's always an element of surprise and excitement. It just makes you want to create more. Lol!

See ya'

Project Life Dt - Yuzz Yusof

Inroducing Papier Project Life Dt 

Hi! My name is Yuzz Yusof, I have been scrapbooking for 4 years and I love doing anything creative but have found my niche with scrapping.  Scrapbooking is definitely my patient and favourite way to channel my creative energy and it is very much therapeutic and also this is part of my "ME" time.  Nothing brings me greater joy than seeing the faces I love most light up when they look at my work. 

I would categorize my style as bright, colourful, vintage, clean, shabby chic sometimes and also a mixture of everything - nothing specific.  I am very thankful to have found this amazing hobby and through scrapbooking, I have made lifelong friendships and created a lasting legacy for my family.  Do hop on to my blog BLOSSOMINCH to see my creative works.

Here's some of Yuzz's Project Life pages.

Welcome on board Yuzz Yusoff. We look forward to more inspirations from you! :)

Mixed Media Layout

A mixed media layout created for my Dec Dt posting. Lots of mistings, stamping and masking. To build the background i first used Prima mask and texture paste. After drying i add pattern paper fussy cut from Bo Bunny Enchanted Fairytales collection. Then i add photo, and slowly build up the embellishment using flowers from Prima and trinkets from my own collection. Lastly add mistings and stamping with gesso.

Recently i've acquired interest in collecting trinkets and findings from hardware shop, accesories store and flee markets findings. Even the screws n bolts is a precious items to keep! lol. If you happens to find a good place to find all these items do let me know. :)

Have a good week everyone!

Card for Best Buddies

Hello! Sharing with you today a simple card using a paper from Webster's Pages. It's easy how you can turn a 12 x 12 layout into; if not 1 but 2 cards to give out to your friends, relatives etc.

Here I have been given WP paper with an element of playtime on it and I just have the right word sticker to go along with it. Reminds me of my childhood days. Lol!

The card is simple but it carries a great message on it. "Best Buddies- Forever and Ever".

Thanks for stopping by! If you like the materials I have used here, do visit the store soon! Happy crafting!
