28th February 2011

In a few hours, it is goodbye to February and hello March.
So thankful to have only 28days as we've ran out of 'moolah'
1. Celebrated our romantic evening in a Coffee shop. It was such a great evening.
2. Aaron took 3 hours to make me a lovely card.
3. Took a 45 minutes walk exploring our neighbourhood, sat on the swing & chatted
4. Took Aaron's niece (lil desirae) to the park & watch her run, sing, catch butterflies & have kiddies talk. [Double Smile]

1. Giving out Ang pows during CNY. I feel the pinch alright.
2. Getting frustrated with my scrap space.
3. Missing mummy & daddy
4. Desperately in need of a holiday
Some pics from Feb....
And my best friend without a smile.What can I say, I'm always ready for the camera!! (=

Your Sweetest Day

Hello All!! How are you doing?

Its a slow going week with a lot of things to do. Like how is that even possible right? Well the "lots of things to do" is not reall in my list of liking. Sigh~~

I manage to clean my scrap space again. Btw, I reorganize them every few months, moving things around. In the pass 1 year, i've tried 4-5 different layouts already. LOL!

So here...a card inspired from my newly cleaned space. (=

"Your Sweetest Day"
I'm thinking this would be a good wedding card.
(Applogise for the lighting, quite a gloomy day in Penang.)
Stickled the butterflies and its good to go. Pretty PP makes it so much easier.
(love the gray and pink tone)

Sneek peek on my mini album using scrap papers. What do you think its made off?
Peek 2...

And this pretty box is filled with delicious tea. TQ Su, all the way from the UK.
Aint the box gorgeous? I could stare at it all day.......

I seriously need a creative career. Who wants to offer me one?

Have a great day folks. Toodles!

AM really happy to de-stash these OA papers. Dont get me wrong, they are still one of my favorite brands......BUT BUT "out with the old and in with the new"!! Which means, more new papers!! YEAY. Happiness.

Valentines 2011

It was low key.

Living with the man you love, we celebrate love almost everyday. (=

Of all days I was craving for Lamb chops, and not just any lambchops....but this particular one.
Ooooo, it just melts in your mouth.....mmmmm. This chops is found in a 'kopitiam' @ penang road. MmmmMmmmmMmmm..... So thats where our Valentines meal a kopitiam. LOL!
No hype whatsoever. Just Aaron & I.

HIS:: Blackpepper chops

HERS:: Creamy Mushroom sauce chops
On 15th Feb 2011....the celebration continued.....

Nasi Melayu

HERS:: Sambal Fish+ Sambal Terung+ Fish cutlet + Fried Egg

HIS:: Sotong + Vegetables

It was quite pricey, but we had a good brunch.

Vain-ing should not be missed.


After Brunch I dropped by Smidapaper, and bought some goodies again, I love that warm and cozy shop. It just feels so pretty.

So here, a card I made for my "Honey Bee".

Recycled that border strip from American Crafts paper. Added in 'I' and 'in' to complete the sentence. A really simple card with busy patterns.

"I cant help falling in LOVE"

How did you spend your Lovey day?

Happy Valentines.

Dear Lovelies,

How was your weekend?

Mine was jam packed, and I'm feeling terribly sleepy. I woke up this morning, wishing I was a housewife....not wanting to leave for work. I'm beating myself up for not taking the day off, but the other consolation is, tomorrow is a public holiday....yahooo!

I've been making so many love cards, but i've not made anything for Aaron. I will rush home after work to make him one.

In the mean time, some old school loving.....

"Love Forever"
Have a lovely day!!!

Altered Challenge by Smidapaper

Dearest Crafty friends,

Here's my take for the altered challenge. *Drum Roll* pls.....

Its my very own valentine coffee sleeves. Double Yeay!

I wanted it to be eye catchy and happy colors. And those super cute, fun polka dots paper (OA) just made it come true.

Btw, both the sleeves are heavily mod-podged. Did I ever mentioned, i love the smell? *winks*

Sleeve for Mr. Xavier

I wanted his sleeves to coordinate with mine...and so those tiny type letters were just PERFECTION!

Sleeve for the crafty Missy.

Lace. I love lace.
Angel wing heart. Misted the wings with my Vanilla Smooch spritz.

So from this.....
Btw, there is a velcro piece at the back of the sleeve for easy usage & to keep it in place.
Thats all from me girlies. I'm feeling on top of the world for altering these cute sleeves.
P/S:: Come participate with Smidapaper and stand a chance to win RM50 voucher. Contest ends 14th February.

Something Random

Dearest Crafty friends,
Its mid-week! Yippieyiyo. I need some solid rest......
I've been making some crafty things at night + an altered project coming soon. I hope you're having a good week. Here's something I made 2 days ago.
A mixture of PPs : Crate Paper, October Afternoon & Pink Paislee
The sentiment was from a border strip from OA paper...fits so perfectly.
The birdies are rub-ons from Maya road. I realized I've missed rub-ons...besides punches, they were my first love.

Completed LO from December's crop challenge.

What a sleepy day, work load is building but I'm still in holiday mood. Howssss??
I can finally say, this is my completed LO. I moved things around, changed some embellishments till satisfied. I'm quite loving the pastel colors with the rich brown.

This was my before LO. From the you can see I tore out all the flowers.

Learned how to layer this butterfly in Smidapaper's card class & I'm mildly obsessed with it.
'Much Love' tag is sold in smidapaper, you get to pick 3 pieces for only RM1. I store some of them in my drawer, its a quick go-to to fill up the page.

'Simply Beautiful'

If you're wondering if I bought this die, the answer is "How I Wish!!" I don't own any die cutting machine either. I got this negative from the card class and kept it to trace more butterflies. Just being very cautious with spending.....takes a bit more time but works like a gem.

And I pop the butterfly up with foam, just to give it that extra booze.

Negative punchouts, I'm in love with you!! Shhhhh, dont tell Aaron!

Good Morning Lovelies.

Welcome to the month of Love....

OooOooOoo. Got this die cut flower from a crop party @ smidapaper.
After our card class, one of the students decided to throw the packaging away......
& this crafty missy here saw a light bulb & thought it would be a good idea to make something cute....Here goes, from packaging to........

The back.


How it looks like in the packaging. I'm thinking of filling the bottom with pearls. Wadya think? I'll try and let u guys know.
This can be hung on door knobs or even on an easel.

P/S: I got this super adorable alphas from Smidapaper. Its limited edition. So hurry!!
