Martha Steward's Doily Lace Punch

It is deliciously indulging...

I dream of owning more....

...but I am limiting myself to 1 every month?

P/S: How frequent do you use your punches? Worth buying??

Disorganized scrap space

At the moment, this is my scrap space.

My Mr. is suppose to drill some shelves to store my jars & embellishments and a metal rod to hang my punches. Really hoping we can do it by saturday. We have been running back and forth from KL visiting my grandpa who just went thru a major surgery. All is good now, his recovery is really fast. Praise God!

Coming back to my space, most of my scrappy things are stored in boxes...hmmmm to be exact, one huge box coz I don't have that many scrapbook stuff. (=
For my new readers, I just got married in January and both hubs and I just moved in to our very own crib. It is heavenly! *smiles*

This scrap space is in our so called 'office'. We thrifted this table from a hotel that was refurbishing for RM90 (less than USD30). Not bad a deal for a super solid table. Aaron was suppose to use the left side, and mine..the right side BUT because I have so many things, he gave his side up for me to pack for customers and now uses the dining table to work. Well it aint my fault.....hehe, he insisted.

He is the sweetest! *loves*

I am quite loving this area of mine, still plenty of work to make it pretty but this is........
"My Space".

The lighting in this room is quite nasty. Need to sort it out so I can take beautiful pics of my creation. So till I snap a prettier picture.......toodles!

March challenge @ Scrap-it-lah

We met up to scrap our honeymoon/holiday pictures.

But when I found out that Scrap-it-lah was having a challenge on holidays, I told josie to join in the contest. So here we are scrapping for the challenge.

Josie's sis-in-law, Evelyn joined us as well. The more the merrier. Oh and she carried all her stuff from KL to PG. All in the name of scrapbooking! *Smiles*

Started off : Not very messy table
(Evelyn looking for inspiration)

Adding on more mess..

The Mr. was intrigue by the Big Bite and told me I should get one..."But i already have a crop-a-dile" says I. Aaron: "Well you would need one in the near future" (...........*speechless*)

Finally!! After 4 hours:: Our completed LOs

Josie's take

Magnificent Hong Kong : Evelyn's take

My DIY acrylic spritz instead of glimmer mist.

The beautiful mess we created

Once upon a time: My take

Some stamping, cutting, raising, sticking, distressing, rub-ons.
Thank you Josie for the lovely brad.

Relatively it was a no-stress day. So happy I got to use the file tab punch and my new stamps. Creating makes us happy!! After we were done with the LOs, we exchanged tools and just went wild with it. So so much fun......ahhhh the bliss of crafting. *big big smile*


Some scrap goodies from last week. Smidapaper was having pick up some of these. I have been wanting the File tab punch the longest time. The moment i saw it was 25% off, i caved in and bought it and the rest of the embelishments were secondary. I got those Teresa collins cling stamps 50% off - only RM20 per stamp. I regreted only buying 2.

And those sassafrass papers were only RM1.50 each. Not too bad a deal. (=

These goodies cost me RM170++ . Truly an expensive hobby.
A little thank you tag I made for a dear customer, Michelle B. She is the sweetest mom! (=

Simple tag made from corrugated cardboard, stamp the lamp-post image (From prima stamps) and tiny alpha stamps. Added some red bling and finish off with baker's twine. Super easy!!

Couple Facts Mini

Made something simple for a dear friend of Mine.

Josie has been through with me quite a number of events in my life, and this is just a lil something for her after we got married on the same month. Yes, on the same month, same year! LOL, talk about coincidence....but how can it be when we're born in the same hospital, went to the same primary, secondary school, same college, working for the same company and once in the same department and got married on the same month? Maybe some long lost sister. (=

Btw, she has a photography business and they take beautiful pictures. Check Pixous out.

Mini album 2 by Teacher Jessy

We did this mini from just 1 sheet of patern paper. Jessy is truly talented. (=

This is my take on the album, but still unfinished.

This butterfly was given to us, I changed the color by using Tim Holtz Vintage Photo distress ink and some rub-ons.

Plain and simple, have not added any journaling.
