Hello friends! Have you all been busy celebrating Chinese New Year? It has been a crazy few weeks for me. Meals after meals and there are loads of chatting and catching up with relatives and friends. Finally, everything is slowly coming back to its norm and I can get into blogging again.
For today, I would like to share with you all an acrylic stand album which I've created as a gift to celebrate the Valentine's Day. I've used Clear Scraps acrylic stand album to create this album.
To decorate the front cover, I've used an acrylic "Love" expression by Clear Scraps with some pattern papers. I've also used tons of overlays and flowers to detail it.
I've kept the pages simple so that the person receiving the album can easily add pictures to it. To make the pages a little interesting, I've also added some overlays in between each acrylic page.
Hope you all find this project inspiring and Happy Chap Goh Meh for those who are celebrating! See you all again soon!

Hello! It has been a while since I've shared a mini album project with you all. Therefore, I've decided to share this mixed media Lille acrylic mini album.
I've used Clear Scraps acrylic castle mini album with papers by 7 Dots Studio. This album consists of tons of mixed media techniques and I've added tons of different elements and textures to it. The sprays and flowers are by Petaloo.
I've used metal embellishment by Tim Holtz idea-ology and some chipboard pieces by Dusty Attic.
Below are some pages in this album.
I love how grungy these pattern papers are. It is perfect to create this historical caste effect album.
I've stamped and used some stencils or masks to create layers on each page. All the clocks are stamped on pattern papers and cut out to decorate each page.
I've also used some white texture paste to create more rough textures on this album. One tip to note is that, to keep the album less bulky, try using stamped images to decorate it instead of dimensional embellishments.

Hi friends! It's time for my project of the week. This week, I will be sharing with you a layout featuring tons of products by BoBunny and Clear Scraps.
It is a mixed media layout with tons of inking, praying, stamping and etc. Below are some closer shots on the details on this layout.
If you look closely in the picture above, I've also used an acrylic lamp post piece by Clear Scraps to decorate this layout. I've colored them with Copic permanent markers and some Stickles. Many of the quotes or sentiment details on this layout are stamped and cut out.
I've even done some light quilling technique using some pattern papers to create flourishes for the cluster of flowers on the left of the layout.
I've used some organza or soft trim to add a different texture and element to this layout. Besides that, I have used some metal embellishment to add that vintage and sophisticated effect to this layout.
The word "Precious" is an acrylic expression by Clear Scraps. To make it visible, I've stamped on it and outline it with some permanent marker and liquid pearls.
