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*)

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!!

Owls makes me {SMILE}

Good Morning to all you lovely crafters.

Made another simple card last night. Trying to use up all my October Afternoon papers so that they dont go out of style.

Not really sure if I like the look of this card....I think there is too much black, but I do adore those owls, oh well I'm a sucker for owls and everything cute.

And if you're wondering why do I have so many cards with Apron Lace border???...that is because it belongs to Cindy and I would need to return sad, I WANT one!!!!......but all the stores I know are sold out.
