Made With Love May Layout | Happiness Here

Hey all, I am back today to share with you my layout for this month. It has been a busy week thus far with all the exams marking and it has been hard to say the least. So this week, I pulled out my stash of goodies that I got from MWL and decided to use them.

Here is the layout and close ups...

As you can see, the Confetti Collection from Crate Paper is simply adorable. I simply love the pops of mint, yellow and gold in this collection. This time, I opted for a different approach by centralizing my photos and embellishments. I kept the layers simple and balanced out the embellishment cluster on both sides of the photos.

Thereafter, I realised that there was too much white space and decided to use splatters of mint around the layout to complete the look. The splatter idea was inspired by this one particular 'paint brush' sticker and I loved how it gives the illusion of a messy arty painting.

If you would like to know how I did the splatter work, check it out below..

1) Spray a good portion of mist into the bottle cap
2) Use your hand motion and aim at where you want it to appear on your page

* Tip - the more mists you spray in the bottle cap, the bigger the splatters.

In Singapore, these supplies/products are available at Made With Love. Do check out the store today. 

Have a great week ahead.

A tribute | Made with Love April Post

To a man who gave his all so that we can have a better future. Words can't describe how these past few weeks have been and I think much has been said about how great this man is. He deserves a page in my scrapbooking album, for sure.

More details of the layout...

This week, I got to work with papers and embellishments from Simple Stories, Crate Paper and MME. I used the set of embellishments and used them as a basis for this page. I kept the layout simple, with simple layering of papers and clustered the embellishments to one corner. The pop of colours from the buttons help to contrast with the photo perfectly.

The photo in the layout is one of my favourites from LKY. National Day Parade will never be the same without him but we will always remember of all the great things he has done for Singapore.

That's it for this week.
I will be back for another update soon.

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.
