MWL | January Post plus ...

Hello everyone! I am finally back with another post this year. The new year brings lots of resolutions and one of them would be to get back into the grinds of blogging. I miss this outlet, now that Instagram has become my best friend but I am going to try to change things around.

Lets get back to sharing more about scrapbooking and my life in general, okay?

First up, February is here and with Valentine's Day around the corner.. I had to complete a valentine layout for MWL.

Yay, this layout took forever to complete simply because I was figuring super hard on how i could use this background paper. I am glad it worked out and I would always be a true CP fan. This time around, I used papers and embellishments from their newest Kiss Kiss collection. I love the tinge of gold that i layered under each section of the layout.

Up next, I discovered that I actually produced a layout to be featured in a scrapbook magazine, Scrap 365. It can be found in their August/September issue and I only just realised that when I bought the issue. Here is sharing a screenshot of the magazine and some close ups...

Using papers and embellishments from the older lines of October Afternoon and Studio Calico. I like how this layout speaks to me and reminds me of my good old travelling days in San Francisco. I cant wait to be back to this place, soon. I will see you in a month's time, SF!

Here's to a good weekend.

MWL | Sept Assignment

Hey, I am back to do a short post since I promise to do so. This week, I am on the Made With Love's blog. This month's theme is all about celebrations. My brother turned a year older this year. We had a great celebration at an awesome place called Ubin Seafood ( a fusion of Western and Chinese cuisine) My sis-in-law received a free monopod and we were happily taking selfies. I dont think I have ever taken so many self-indulged photos before. A simple tool can bring so much joy, dont you think?

Here is the layout and some close ups....

This month, I got to work with new embellishments from Crate Paper's Notes and Things colllection, Pebbles' Home Made collection and the Teresa Collins' Life Emporium collection. Among them, I really love the new Home Made collection by Jen Hadfield. The bold colours and the gold glitter stand out so much. I went a little crazy on the gold part in the layout, as you can see.

Well, that's it. I wil drop by more often to blog.

Sketch | Made with Love March Blog Hop

Hey scrappers, it is time for another round of MWL blog hop. This week, the designers hade to make use of a sketch that inspires them and scrap about it. I chose this sketch.

This was my intepretation of the sketch and some close ups...


Products used:
Patterened Papers : Echo Park, Bella Blvd, American Crafts
Embellishments : Prima, Bella Blvd, Tim Holz and October Afternoon 

I kept the arrangement of the sketch closely. What inspired me were the banners below the photo. I simply made use of a variety of patterned papers and hand cut little banners. No accurate cutting was done, for sure. Once done, layer according to your preference and ensure that all parts are overlapped. 

The use of bright colours in the layout called for a balance of more neutral colours like black and white. That is my solution whenever I work with bolder colours. Lately, I have been crazy about rub ons, especially the ones by Tim Holtz. I simply cut a chunk of them out and use them for my journaling. In this case, I mixed the rub ons with some stamp sentiments. 

I hope you enjoyed this post. Be sure to check out the other designers' blog in the upcoming weeks. 
Have a great week ahead.
