Wild About Winter Layout


Good morning! I've read that it is starting to snow is some of the areas that my friends are staying. I can still remember when I first see snow and it is absolutely breathtaking. Therefore, I've decided for today's post, I would like to share a layout featuring Hiro in a winter themed layout. Hiro is a Siberian husky and it's fur is as white and as fluffy as the snow.

I've used products by BoBunny to create this layout. Below are more close-ups on it.


I've kept the layout very simple and avoid using tons of heavy mixed media techniques on it. To make it look more sophisticated, I've used some cut outs from the pattern papers to create layers underneath and around the photographs.


For dimension, I used some foam adhesives and some paper flowers to accent the layout. I've also added some jewels for some sparkles around the layout.


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

Butterfly Heart Shaker


Hello friends! Today, I'm going to share a very simple project. It is a heart shaker which can be used as a home decor, gift or ornament. I've used Clear Scraps mini heart shaker to create this project with pattern papers by BoBunny.

Below is another picture of this shaker.


I've first painted the chipboard edges with distress stain. Then, I've covered the rest with pattern papers. I've also cut out some flowers and words from the pattern papers to decorate this shaker. To seal the shaker, I've used some washi tapes.

Sleepy Head Layout


Hi friends! Are you all up for a layout inspiration this week? For today's layout, I've used some products by 7 Dots Studio and Clear Scraps. This is a light mixed media layout. Below are ore details on this layout.


To add tons of different elements and textures, I've used some chipboard, lace and acrylic on this layout. To add some designs to the background, I used some mascils by Clear Scraps and some inks. I used some texture paste to add more rough texture to the chipboard flourishes and detail them with some pearls.



I use the same technique on the acrylic frame and decorate it with some jewels and pearls.


The flowers used on this layout is by Petaloo and to blend the color of the lace with the layout, I've added some white gesso and misted some paint onto it.

Thank you so much for dropping by and see you all again soon!

My Story Planner Album


Hello my dear friends! It has been a while since my last album project. For today's post, I would like to share this acrylic album with you all. I've used Clear Scraps "build it your way" series of album to create this album.  Besides that, I've also used a chipboard "My Story" expression from Clear Scraps on the cover of this album too.

Below are some pictures on the inside pages of this album.



I've used chipboard pages for each page and in between them, I've used some acrylic tab divider pages.


To decorate each acrylic divider page, I've used some masks/stencils by Clear Scraps with acrylic paint. To detail it, I've used jewels and some cut outs from pattern papers.


I've covered each chipboard pages with pattern papers by MSD. 


To add more journaling pages to this album, you can actually insert them easily to this album since it is a ring album. Love this feature. You can also add small mementos items such as tickets and tabs to it by adding a pocket page to it.

Hope you all like this project and see you all again soon!

Acrylic Cupcake Serviette Holder


Happy Friday everyone! Today, I would like to share with you a very simple but fun project which you can create for your parties or events. These acrylic serviette holders are very easy to make.

Here's how you could make one for yourself too. Just cut out a small strip of acrylic and bend it into a "U" shape.


For my serviette holder, I've added two pieces of acrylic cupcake on each end of the acrylic strip. I've decorated two pieces of acrylic cupcake by Clear Scraps using pattern papers and jewels. For some icing, I've used some dimensional pearls.

You can use any kind of acrylic or chipboard pieces to decorate each end of the trip to suit your event. For example, you can use some bats, black cats or spiders for this coming Halloween events or you can use some Christmas stockings, elves or presents for the coming Christmas parties.

Hope you all like this simple idea and try it. See you all again soon!

Love Acrylic Layout


Hello friends! For this week's blog post, I would like to share an acrylic layout with you all. To create this layout, I've used an XL shaped acrylic piece by Clear Scraps as the base for it. I wanted to create a floating effect for this layout therefore, I've left some of the acrylic base uncovered and see through.

Here are some details on it.


I've stamped some branches and flourishes using some solvent ink on the layout and later add some flowers and crystals to it.


To add more elements to it, I've used some chipboard embellishment which I've painted and sprayed on for some colors and textures. For details, I've added some jewels, ribbon and brads to it. I've also stamped some butterflies and cut them out to add it to the layout.


To distress the paper flowers, I've lightly misted them with some paint. I've also stamped some flowers and flourishes on the pattern paper and cut them out to use it. For more sparkle, I've randomly add some crystals around the flowers.

Hope you all like this layout and see you all again soon!

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!
