Pins And Needles Holders


Happy Friday! This week I would like to share a different kind of project with you all. I've created a couple of pins and needles holders using some pattern papers, foams and some fabrics.

First of all, I've created a vintage shoe shaped holder. I've used some pattern papers to create the basic shape and added a fabric covered foam in the middle of it to hold the pins and needles. Below is a close-up of it.


I've then, decorated it with lace, buttons, ribbons, flower, pearls and butterfly.

I've also created another circle shaped holder.


This is just a basic circle shaped holder. I did not use any pattern paper in creating this holder. Just a foam and some fabric, lace, pearls and flowers.


Hope you all like today's project and see you all again next week.

Memories Forever Layout



Hello fellow crafters and friends! It's another Friday here. For today's post, I would like to share a layout which brings back a lot of memories for me.The photograph featured in this layout had been taken while we were on a vacation in Japan. The feeling of getting lost and being adventurous in an unfamiliar environment or place is the best experience that you can get while travelling. I think I really need another vacation trip to take away all this stress I have in me right now.

Now, let's move on to the layout itself. I've used tons of products by BoBunny to create this layout. I've used several mixed media techniques to create this layout.

Here are more close-ups on the details.


To create these dimensional bubbles or circles, I've used several glitter paste with a circle stencil by BoBunny. To make the colors more interesting and well blended, I've misted some paint on it too.


For the title, I've used a chipboard expression and painted it with some paint and detailed with some glitter paste.


To add some different elements to this layout, I've used some metal brads to decorate the layout.

This is such a fun layout to create and I hope it gives a little inspiration to you in your next project. Thank you for dropping by and see you all again soon!

Remember When Acrylic Card


Hello friends! I'm so sorry that I've not posted here last week. I've been under the weather for more than a week now. I'm stress out on between kids exams and some kids matters. I just hope all this will be over soon and I could get back to my norm.

Since this last week I've been dealing with tons of kids matters, I think by sharing this card would lift me up a bit in spirit. This is a card which I've created using some products by Clear Scraps. I've used the Fancy Send It Clear card by Clear Scraps as the base for this card.

Here are more close-ups on this card.


I've used some Copic markers to highlight the edges of the acrylic card to make it visible but still has the translucent effect.


As a mom, there are so many hurdles that we have to jump and so many obstacles that we have to overcome when raising our child. We can get very angry, sad and disappointed during these moments. But I do always remind myself, every children started off as a blank canvas and how they handle things might be following your foot steps. Therefore, I believe a good mom should have at least the ability to listen to them and have faith in them. This is just a little tip from me to all moms out there.

I hope you all like today's project and see you all again soon!

Enjoy Your Special Day Card


Hello everyone! Have you heard of Little Birdie Crafts? This company had sent me some goodies to play with and this is what I've come up with. This is a light mixed media birthday card using those gorgeous products by Little Birdie Crafts.

Here are more details on this card.


To create more dimension and textures, I've used a stencil and some chipboard pieces by Little Birdie Crafts. The white gesso is able to create some interesting and rough background for the card. To add some colors to the chipboard, I've painted it and later add some glitters to it for some sparkle.


To soften the look and add more layers to the card, I've added tons of paper flowers on the lower left corner of the card. 

Thank you so much for dropping by and hope to see you all again soon! Have a great weekend!

Read and Imagine Journal Page


Hi everyone! For today's post,I would like to share something a little different. It's a mixed media art journal page. I've used some products by BoBunny to create this page.

Below are some closer look at it.


To add some dimension and different textures, I've used some wood and metal elements on it. Besides that, I've also used some dimensional paste to create some details on the background.

In the picture above, I've cut out some images from the pattern paper to create a collage look on it. To create the 3 dimensional look, I've added some painting techniques on the background using some paints and inks.


Thank you so much for dropping by and hope you all find this little journal page inspiring. See you all again soon!

Home Wood Album


Hello everyone! It's another Friday and time for me to share another project with you all. For today's post, I would like to share a window wood accordion shaker album by Clear Scraps. This is such a fun and interesting album to create and can easily be displayed at home.

I've painted the frame of the window with white acrylic paint. To further decorate the cover, I've painted a chipboard bicycle with some glitter paste and added it to the cover. This gives more texture and dimension effect. To soften the look, I've used some ribbon, faux moss and paper flowers.

Below are some pictures on the inside of this album.



I've kept it simple so that the recipient of this album could add their photographs to the album. Hope you all find this project inspiring and love it! See you all again soon!

Happy Birthday Exploding Box


Morning everyone! It's another Friday again and for today's blog post, I would like to share with you all another project which I seldom create. It's a birthday album exploding box. This exploding box is a birthday gift as well as an album which consists of pictures taken during the birthday party.

To create this box, I've used pattern papers by MSD and to decorate it, I've used some ribbons and sprayed paper flowers. To add some elegant effect to it, I've used Clear Scraps acrylic butterfly and tag. 


To add colors to the butterfly, I've used alcohol ink and later dab some glitter paste to it. To add more sparkle to it, I've used jewels to decorate around the top of the box cover.



Inside the box, I've decorate the middle of it using paper doily and more flowers. There are three layers of flaps on each side of the box.


Each page is decorated either with a photograph, quote, sentiment or space for journaling. I've added acrylic frames on some of the pages too.

This is a great gift. It can just be a gift box with sentiment or as an album to document some memories from an event or a trip. Try it and see you all again soon!

Hope Layout with Acrylic Frame


Good morning friends! Have you seen Clear Scraps acrylic layout frames? If not, you should try creating using it. It is so much fun and make creating a layout so easy. For today's layout, I've used Clear Scraps flowers acrylic layout. These acrylic layout is kind of an overlay. You can leave it see through or add colors to it using pattern papers or mixed media medium.

Below are some close-up pictures.


I've covered most of the acrylic frame with pattern papers to add colors to it. I've attached the pattern papers from its back to keep the glossy surfaces on the acrylic on the front of the layout.

I used an acrylic "Hope" expression by Clear Scraps as the title of this layout. I've used some pattern papers to decorate some of the alphabets and outline the rest with permanent marker.


For more dimension, I've added some paper flowers on it. Lastly, to make the acrylic layout looks more natural on this layout, I've cut out some flowers from the pattern papers to decorate the layout.


Below is a picture of the bare acrylic layout frame.


It is so easy to create layout using this acrylic layout frame. There are more different designs of these acrylic layout frame on Clear Scraps site. Check them out!

My View Altered Canvas


Hello friends! For today's post, I would like to share this altered canvas which I've created long time ago using tons of products of by Tim Holtz. I've used products by Tim Holtz idea-ology and Ranger Inks Besides that, I've also used an acrylic frame and some acrylic sheets by Clear Scraps.

Below are some details on this canvas.

In the below picture, I've painted some grunge board fern and flowers with crackle paints and detail it with distressed stickles and ink.


I've used an acrylic sheet to create this flower. I've cut out the flower and outlined it with permanent marker. To layer it, I've used a paper flower which I've masked another smaller flower in it. On the edges of the canvas, I've used some distress embossing powder to highlight it.


On the grunge board dragonfly below, I've added ink and magic mesh on it. Later, I've used some glossy accents to seal it and use some liquid pearls to detail it.


I really love the metal embellishment by Tim Holtz idea-ology series. I've used some some them on the flower below to create the grungy and steampunk effect. The outer layer of the flower is made of acrylic sheets which have been inked using alcohol ink.


To create some textures and details on the acrylic frame, I've embossed it and inked it with alcohol ink.


I've embossed the alphabet below with some embossing folder and later inked it with distress ink. To further enhance it and seal it, I've used some glossy accents.


Hope you all like today's canvas. Try some of the techniques which I've used on the altered canvas in your recent projects. Have fun and see you all again soon!

Summer Favorites Layout


Hello friends! I'm so sorry for missing a post last week. I've been super busy and there are just so much to do till I've forgotten to schedule a post here. Between things around the house and having two kids who are about to take exams, I'm trying my best to juggle each day.

Anyway, for today's post, I would like to share with you all a Summer themed layout with tons of warm colors. I've used pattern papers by Graphic 45 and flowers by Petaloo to create this layout.

Below are some closer look on this layout.


To make the layout colorful and warm, I've added different colors of paper flowers around the layout. These flowers and lace gives the layout so much dimension and textures.


To tone down the colors a bit and blend with the beach theme of the layout, I've brushed on the flowers with some white paint.


I also use some bottle caps to create some interesting circle design on the background of this layout.

Hope to see you all again soon!
