All things white

I am sure everyone knows about Studio Calico's white mist. Everyone has been raving about it but i never got my hands on them. Its funny how one product could be sold out in an instance. So i decided to improvise and made my own mists. I bought white paint, put two tiny spoonful of it into my mini mister, mixed with water and viola! out comes spurts of white blots. (:

Well, i am proud of myself for experimenting with these mediums as i am so not a technical person. So from my made-to-do white mists, i made the following stuff..

Notice the white blots? They are as good as your tattered angels mists and much cheaper too! Loving the CP's Random collection and i gesso-ed the sides of the LO to give some textures.

A few weeks ago, Jo and I ordered items from and our stuff finally arrived. I went crazy over their K&Co stuff because the items were so ridiculously cheap. 12by12 pads were going at US$6 dollars and each of their fun packs were priced at around $4. I simply could not resist.. So in the light of that shipment, i made a bday album, marking my 1/4 of a century life.

Notice the white paint? I used the prima's mask and painted over it. Each page is also splattered with white. (:

I hope you guys are having an awesome long break! Lets enjoy it before Wednesday comes. For now, i am happily slacking away, sleeping a lot more and scrapping even harder. (:

Travel lines

I dont know about you but i am a sucker for travel lines. I love to travel and what better way to document a trip but buying pretty travel papers. When i first heard about Amy Tangerine coming out with her new line, i was apprehensive as her style is so different from mine. But i was so wrong! Have you checked out this line yet? The colour combinations are to die for! I knew i had to grab some before they were sold out.

I finally decided to be less lazy and did an album to document my HK trip in June.

Notice the snowflake flower in the center of the album? I bought this from my very good friend's online scrapbooking store. You should check it out! She is selling such pretty flowers, metal charms/tags and other embellishments for such afforable prices. i was so in love with these flowers that i bought quite a few. (: Check it out HERE!

Snokeflake flower again! Simply couldnt resist it. Layer it with patterned paper and dollies and it really does make your page pop out! :D


Up next, another layout that i completed last week using the OA's BOARDING PASS collection. How can i resist not buying this? Ever since i saw it on their blog, i knew i had to get them, esepcially when they named one of their papers after Hong Kong! Hahahaaha.

So yup, in honour of my love for that place.. I used the papers to document my trip back from 2 years ago to HK/Guangzhou. (:

Dont you love the little monopoly man?

Okay so sorry for this crazy post on travel lines. My mind is still suffering from all the amount of marking/preparation of lessons mode. The next two weeks will be hell crazy since i am down from invigilation.

Have an awesome week ahead!
I know we all cant wait for Week 10 to come! Many more holidays to come. (:

Oh ya! Dont forget my giveaway in the post below!
It is still open until 31st Aug. <3

Back after almost 3 whole weeks of not blogging! I hope everyone is fine. I need to force myself to update this blog regulary. The scrap mojo has been so on and off and it amazes me how i can still buy stuff from the store but be too lazy to scrap. I am pretty much a hoarder now! Haha. The long weekend came in handy and i realised why the laziness crept in. My scrapbook area is so messy that i cant even remember what i have. Hence, i did a major declutter session from yesterday till today and GOT RID of a lot of stuff.

I do have a free giveaway to anyone who is willing to accept it. Free postage included. I have a total of 35 12x12 papers to give away. It consists of papers from teresa colins, lily bee, pink paislee's daily junque, american craft's city park, sassafras papers etc and i will also throw in the latest tim holtz' kraft resist paper pack. I used around 12 pieces of the kraft papers so there is still a good whole 12 papers left. (:

Do leave a comment if you would like to have it. It will be open till the end of August and i will draw a winner.

I did manage to scrap a layout this week but i have been so backwards in terms of updates so lets start with a LO i did for the MWL National Day challenge.

Used the Echo Parks' Victoria Garden papers and they are simply irresitable. Love the summer colours. Decided to use my Prima's mask on a white cardstock as the background and used the papers and prima flowers as embellishments.

Back on a roll?
Happy National Day! Two more days to the weekend. (:
