Some crafty updates.

I had the night to myself as aaron went for his meeting. Heres what I did...

1. I kept the dry clothes
2. Folded like 2 weeks worth of clothes while watching ANTM cycle 14, some UK dance show & Guiliana& Bill
3. Did another load of laundry
4. Hung the wet clothes
5. Went in to my craft room to prepare for my december daily mini album. Yeay! I finally started.

Then aaron came back from meeting and bought me this, he's a sweetheart.

Red Velvet Cake (love the cream cheese)

Thanks to Cindy, this is day 1. (She gave me some christmas papers. Sweet!)

I wanted this to be day 24, I absolutely adore Christmas Eve...perfect card!

Super messy table, trying to kickstart this project.
December Daily 2010 by Ali Edwards, Who's with me for this project?

I'm in a bit of a poloroid craze, so I asked Aaron if I could have it for christmas, he told me to consider a printer. *Sigh* I'll pray harder, who knows it'll be under the tree. LOL!

Have a great day crafty friends.

Masculine Card Challenge by Smidapaper

Greetings to all on a lovely Tuesday.

Smidapaper is hosting a challenge on Pink Masculine Card. Yea I know....."PINK???"" But I decided to take up this challenge. I had quite a tough time figuring out the papers but when I received my Studio Calico kit, i was drawn to this pink woodgrain (My Mind's Eye), it was somewhat masculine.

So no laces, pearls and doilies, just a simple card with some office supplies. (=

"Pssssssttttt, winner of this challenge gets RM50 voucher in the new store". How exciting!!!

Lovely Card from my dearest husband

Dearest crafty friends, thank you for the lovely birthday wishes and truly made my day. (=

I had a fabulous birthday, and look what my husband made?

Awww......such a sweet card. After seeing this card, i so wanna make a card with balloons. Shall we make one? The mess on my table tells me he had a lot of fun making it. Aaron told me he sat on my desk 15 mins just planning and choosing the papers. I'm glad he used kraft, my fav of the lot.

He is just the sweetest guy. I'm so so blessed to have him.

I love you dear Aaron.
Thank you for the lovely day, you make me feel so special. xoxo!

Masculine Birthday Card

....for my uncle.

Tough challenge to create something masculine....or so it was to me.

I'm a girlie girl when it comes to crafting....pinks, laces, buttons, frills, I drool on them. Oh well, in my opinion, crafting in its essence has feminine qualities....hahhaa. The rise of the chromosomes!!!! LOL!

Here's a card for a special man who celebrated on 10-10-10.

A bit too late for Case Study challenge #7

I forgot to bring my camera to work 2 days in a row, and so too late to submit in.

I fell in love with this card, it was so beautifully made...

My version of the challenge:
(not particularly my style of color combo, but since I had the paper, why not try.)

Lovely paper given by Jessy (thanks babe!)

Have a great day crafty friends!!

September - The start of wedding season

6 weddings in 7 weeks (back to back). Is that insane or what?

I guess I'm at that phase in life.....that marriage phase. Pretty soon it'll be the baby phase - school phase - college phase - children getting married phase - grandchildren......and the cycle continues. I realized that time flew by so fast, so much so that my mind cant register I'm already at the next phase.

I have come to learn that 'worrying' is a waste of time. I know that we ladies tend to worry at very single thing, to the point where we forget to savor the moment. Worrying makes us lose focus on what we're suppose to do. And what does worrying do?? It causes anxiety & stress which will lead to destruction of our bodies.....and eventually every beautiful moment just passes u a stranger.

So today, I have a challenge for you. Savor your day, be thankful & one day at a time is what it takes to keep the doctor away. *Cheers ladies*

Making wedding cards for my lovely couple friends. ENjoy!

CASE study challenge #5

Good Morning dear crafty friends!

After a 5 1/2 day holiday, I'm back. Well I spent most of my holiday recovering from flu & cold... sad to say I've not fully recovered yet. My guess is I'm not sleeping well....too busy separating my time for different pockets in life.

BUT BUT I manage to squeeze in some time to participate in this challenge. Cindy was right when she said I'll most likely submit in cards for the next few challenges. More of my taste perhaps?. *Smile*

So, this is mine...

A very kind soul gave me these....

Drool, Drool, Drool!!

A colleague of mine, Stephanie, gave me this lovely crochet flowers and gorgeous appliqué. She left them at my desk this morning, isn't she a sweetheart ?Thank you, thank you!! Gosh I LOVE everything!! Cant wait to use them.......but again, aren't they too pretty to use? I could stare at them all day...(=

I wont be crafting for the next days because the book shelves in my scraproom is infested with white ants. Gosh, i get goose bumps just thinking bout them....geli!! We had to throw 2 rows of books was devastating.....and it was the first time in my life witnessing this disgusting sight....horrid creatures munching away on the books. IT was a fiesta for them and horror for me. Anyways, Aaron already treated their nest with poison. As cruel as I may sound, I pray that they bring the poison back to the queen and KILL the whole colony....and never to surface again.

On a happier note, I can stare at the gorgeous flowers!! Btw, I am thankful that the ants did not attack my scrap space. My patterned papers would have been delicious for them....LOL!

Have a great longggg weekend ahead. Selamat Hari Raya!!

Travelling Journal

I've seen a lot of crafters who scrap about their travels.....and I've been wanting to do so, but every time when I get back from a holiday, it seems that I get busier than before.....needless to say I wont be documenting anything from the holiday.

So this time, I decided to prep myself before the trip. I have a plain notebook (i decorated the front), which i will stick ephemera's, pictures and write lots of journaling when I'm on my trip. That way I will not forget anything and for once maybe complete it. LOL!

Here's what I did...

I'll be off for a mini outing with my in-laws this weekend. Have a fabulous weekend!

I'm so loving the tiny type letters(October Afternoon) & Making Memories.
Both available @ Smidapaper

My Favorite product at the moment!!!


One incredible product for giving dimension. This should be a staple for scrapbookers/cardmakers. And, and you get a whole lot of value for your money. Isn't that awesome? Very strong adhesive and the foam doesn't sink.

Anyways my scrapbook girlfriend, Cindy did a product review for Smidapaper, and Sheila is selling it for a very reasonable price (pssst, cheaper than some of the local scrapbook stores....dont tell them I told you....*winks*)

Embellish Mag Color Challenge::Use Quirky, Cutesy, Clean style

Scrap-It-Lah August Challenge

It seems like forever since I made any LOs. Last night, while my husband was attending his class, I finally scrapbooked.....I was happy. (=

This months challenge was to complete the title "I now know..."

Although my title may seem hilarious but jokes aside, my mom truly spoiled us. Now after having a place of my own, I now realized how much I took my mom for granted....and she is not getting any younger. If I could only turn back the clock and help her out.....

Here's what I made..

- Handmade embellishment, from lace
- Misted paper doily pink and white glimmer mist
- Hand-cut the ladies out from Cosmo Cricket Material girl collection,glossy accent one of the ladies and foam raised it.

"I now Know what its like to do Housework"

Materials Used:
PP:: So Sophie's Collection - My Minds Eye [ I LOVE it, so gorgeous looking], Girls Paperie & Material Girl- Cosmo Cricket
Alphas:: American Craft Thickets - Felt & Fabric, Tiny type - October Afternoon
Stamps:: Girls Paperie & Date stamp
Embellishments::Prima Flowers, Doily, Pearls, Lace & Button

Happy Monday to you & have a lovely week!!!

Still feeling a little under the weather

...hence why I've been a bit slow in crafting. Been popping medication for the pass few days...but yet it seems my road to recovery is slow. Most likely this is my prolonged and built up tiredness

So after 6 days of not crafting, I caved in and made something.

Its a Happy Day!!


Materials Used:
PP:: Girls Paperie & CosmoCricket
Flower:: Prima
Stamp: Inkadinkado
Doily:: Compliments from Josie
Lace & Button:: Local craft Shop
