Pink Birthday Cards


Morning everyone! It's another great Friday morning here and for today's post, I would like to share with you all some simple birthday cards which I've created using some pattern papers by BoBunny.


These cards are really fast and easy to create. The tedious part would be to fussy cut some cherry blossoms out of the pattern paper to decorate them.
To add some dimensional details to it, I've used some dimensional pearlescent by BoBunny and some jewels.


I use some gold foil transfers to create the word "Happy Birthday" on one of the cards.


I hope you all find today's project simple enough and try creating some. Have a great weekend ahead and see you all again soon!

Home Blessed Word Frame Decor


Good morning! Today's project is a little different. It is a home decor created using Clear Scraps "Home" word frame. I love how you could personalize these word frame to suit your home.

Below are some details on how I've altered it.


I've first used some pattern papers to cover the background of this frame. Then, I've used some permanent markers to highlight the edges of the alphabets and shapes. To add some textures to it, I've used Clear Scraps flourish mascil and some white gesso to add some flourishes details on it. For more fine details, I've used some dimensional red gel pen to add dots to it.


For the word "blessed", I used Clear Scraps "blessed" chipboard word title and painted it with some white acrylic paint.


I hope to add more colors to this layout, therefore, I've used some gorgeous blooms by Petaloo to decorate this word frame. Together with the lace and twine, this creates a softer look to this frame.

This is such a fun and challenging project for me to create. Hope you all find it interesting and try creating one too! See you all again next week!

Mother's Day Card


Morning everyone! Mother's Day is just round the corner and  for today's post, I would like to share a card which I've created using tons of products by Graphic 45 and Petaloo. 

This is a very simple card. I've used a pink cardstock as the base for this card and later layer it with some pattern papers and cut-outs. 


I decorate it with some jewels for some sparkle. Besides that, I've also use some flowers by Petaloo to create the cluster on the lower left of the card.


 Have you started your project for this Mother's Day? If not, why not try creating a fast and simple card. Thank you so much for dropping by today. I hope you all got your daily boost of inspiration by visiting my blog.

Sibling Layout


Good morning! It is another Friday! For today's post, I would like to share a layout on my two babies when they were very young. Looking at this layout makes me realize how much they've grown. Time really flies!

I've kept the look of the layout grungy and used tons of products by Tim Holtz. Below are some close-ups on this layout.


I used an acrylic circle and run it through the embossing machine to create the piece in the center of the makes clock image. I've added some grunge board hinges as clock hands and metal embellishment to it.  


I lightly inked and stamped on the flowers before layering them. I used a brad to attach them together and to the layout.


Adding a hidden tag is always fun on a layout. You can add a journaling tag or any other type of tag which is meaningful to the layout. My tag marked the date of the photograph taken.



To create a more masculine and grungy look, I've added a strip of metal chain with some metal and acrylic charms on the bottom of the layout. For more textures, I've also added a burlap tape strip on it. I detailed the acrylic charm with some rub-ons.


At the very bottom of the layout, I used some grunge board frame and alphabets to create the title of the layout. I've inked it and added some glossy dimensional accents to it for a more interesting effect.


This is a multi technique layout using stamps, inks, different elements, masks, embossing and so on. I hope it will be an inspiration to you all and start trying out those techniques on your projects. See you all again soon!

Friends Acrylic Mini Album


Hello! Good morning! It is a lovely Friday morning here in Malaysia! Are you all ready for another boost of inspiration? For today's post, it is also a first time for me too! It is my first ever acrylic bird cage album. This album features Clear Scraps acrylic bird cage album.

I've used various products from MSD to decorate this album. Here are some details on it's cover.


These flowers are originally white in color. I've lightly misted them with some paint and let it dry completely. This adds a lovely hint of pink to the flowers.


To add more different elements to this album, I've used some chipboard ornate hinges by Clear Scraps. I've used some faux metal techniques to make it look more realistic. Here are the video to my faux metal tutorials. You can also check out a step by step tutorial via this link to create your own faux metal hinges using cardstock.

Besides the hinges, I've also added a Clear Scraps chipboard "Friends" expression and a metal butterfly on it. I've folded the wings up to give it a more dimensional look.

Now, let's move on to the pages in this album.


This album is meant to be a gift journaling album for a friend of mine. Therefore, I tried to add more journaling space in it and keep it simple.



For each page, I've used some pattern papers to create layers and add a journaling piece on it.




Hope you all find this album inspirational and try some of the techniques which I've mentioned today. See you all again soon!
