My Story - an altered frame

Hi there! I have taken leave from work today to get few things done and one of them is my son's registration for primary school next year. It was tough to decide on which school we wanted him to go to. I was undecided at first whether to send him to a government or a private school. Parents! Of course they want the best for their children! Lol! Each type of school have their own pros and cons....I've been to numerous blogs by mommies and daddies discussing about these and that quite helped me finally in deciding the one for my son ;)))

Well, enough of my ramblings and here's a simple altered frame I did today after coming back home from settling few chores. I've been keeping that Ikea frame for quite some time and it's been staring at me in my crafting room waiting to be of good use...hehe...I have mainly Webster's Pages and Tim Holtz Ideology in this project. A good combination for that romantic grunge feeling......I think......!



Materials used:

Pp: Webster's Pages

Adage tickets, accoutrements, metal corners: Tim Holtz Ideology

Die-cut flourish: Making Memories...( I think! )

Hi there! Blogsy isn't friendly with me today ;( but somehow, I managed to upload these new ATCs of mine, finally. When I've finally figured out the mess I made when uploading through blogsy for the past couple of weeks; a new problem arise. Sigh!

Anyway, these ATCs below are from the 'SHE' series. She sings, she travels and she writes....

I've used the WP's packaging for the ATCs. Also used inka gold here by Viva Decor on the edge.

TFR&L! Ciao!

Be True - a scrapbook layout

 Hi there! Another update from me on scrapbook layout. Been busy with my Sunday Picnic. I was so excited when I got it plus with few cameos that I ordered came through the mail yesterday! I think I'm going through the phase of shabby romantic grunge, maybe. Lol! I don't even know how to interpret the phase I'm going through now!
Anyways, on this layout I have used quite a number of WPs items. There are the paper of course, the whimsies, fabric ticket, cameo and bloomers. And as usual, I try to keep things simple and more white space, which I think is my usual style! ( because I'm so impatient! Lol!!)
This is a picture of me with my friends way back from the A Level time. We spent one morning at local kopitiam catching up with stories and gossiping....hehe...really?

Coral Despair. That's the title of the ATCs below. It's my interpretation of the dying coral in our seas, be it due to human activities or even the increasing sea temperature. I used to dive a lot before I was married and was made aware of the health of the corals and it's importance to our ecosystem.
Garden Ticket. That's the title for below. I'm imagining this would be an entrance ticket to see a world class garden! Hehehe.....
Bubble Depth. Again, this is my interpretation of scuba diving, my personal favourite hobby, which I long to do again ( uhuk! Uhuk!). Well, when diving, you will be releasing bubbles as you exhale and that 'ruler' actually represents my depth gauge, which I need to constantly check to see if I'm way above my licensed limit. Hehehe....

OK, that's all for tonight. I will be back with more ATCs and  layouts using Webster's Pages new Sunday Picnic. Stay tune!

Love mail box on canvas for Papier

Love mail box
Hi and Happy Wednesday! Feels like only yesterday I sent in a post at Papier. How time really flies... I went for shopping last weekend and oh my! it looks like the shops are well prepared for the upcoming Valentine's Day. To join in the heat, I have prepared a very simple project for the special day. I'm sure some of you will be receiving Valentine cards or even love letters on the fourteenth, so, I have decided to work on something that you can use to store these precious love mementos that can also be displayed on your table or anywhere you like.

All you need is love and patience, and of course; with few papers and other materials to get this done.  Basically, I have used canvas, which has been painted with Martha Stewart's satin paint for its foundation. I have used Bazzil Basics to create the 'mail-box' effect and glued to the canvas sheet. The rest, well, just add on shapes, flowers, ribbons etc to decorate your artwork as you wish. 

 I kinda like the vintage figure on this. She seems to be amongst the flowers and birds in a garden. Don't you feel like this on Valentine's day? Well, I hope you will have the sweetest Valentine's Day ever.
Materials used:
Canvas board
Plain paper: Bazzil Basics
Patterned paper: Pink Paislee - the flowers were fussy cut ( DT kit )
Lace stickers: Cristina Re
Bird stickers: my own collection
Shaped die-cuts: Kaisercarft
Bloomers: Webster's Pages (DT kit)
Ornate plate: Tim Holtz Ideology
Punch: Martha Stewart
Ribbon: from my Feb DT kit

Day to day pocket mini album for Papier - with quick tutorial

Hi there! It's Wednesday and my turn to post at Papier. Inspired by the February DT kit that I received recently, I did this 'Day to day pocket mini album', which is very handy and certainly a carry along items in your handbags. This idea really came out of the blue and I just worked on the idea as I went along making this. Pure fun! 

 This pocket mini album has a slot on each page with a special tag inserted in each. You can write daily reminders or your favourite daily quotes or even things to accomplish each day for the rest of the week! And the best thing is, you can just slip it in your handbags and you are ready to go!
 See the tag below, which is for the Sunday slot.
A bit on how-to do this pocket mini album:
1) Cut out a piece of 9 x 3" of pp and fold in the middle
2) Cut out a piece of 4 x 1" pp. Fold it on the shorter side into half
3) Cut out a piece of 1x1.5" pp. Fold it on the shorter side into half
Attach the no.2 piece to the bottom of the pp no.1 done earlier. Secure it with glue. Do the same with no.2 onto the side of pp no.1 and secure with glue. Use a punch to poke 2 holes on the side of pp. no 1.
Now you can start putting in your embellies as you like!  Easy peasy lemon squeasy

Materials used:
Patterned paper: Pink Paislee and My Mind's Eye, Glitz Designs
Buttons: my Feb DT kit + others
Shaped die-cuts: Kaisercraft
Decorative tape: 7 Gypsies
Alphabet stickers: Sassafras Lass
Lace stickers: Black ( Cristina Re ) & others 
Flowers: Prima
Ribbon: DT kit + scrapper friend

Happy Crafting! TFL&R!
