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.

Week 10

It is finally going to be the last day of school tomorrow and with that, it is going to be a fruitful week to rest up. As you can see, I havent had much time to blog so the updates have been lacking. I will be going on a short trip to Hong Kong tomorrow after work. It is exciting, knowing that there is something to look forward to.

My thoughts and prayers are also with the #MH370 plane. I cant imagine the pain and the agony of what they went through and the people they left behind. Do pray.

"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God." 2 Cor1:3-4


Some updates on the scrapbooking end, I joined Pretty Little Studio this march and these are the layouts and cards done thus far..

I am stil trying to find my style, in the midst of the diverse products PLS has. I am sure you will agree that  a cutsy style is so not me. But surprisingly, I have been loving the layouts done with their products. I am so happy that I am on board such a talented DT that sees my potential. 


Up next, it was my turn on the Crate Paper's blog. Be sure to check out the link to see an in depth post of how I made this corkboard-inspired display tray. With 20 talented designers, I am sure you will be inspired by the different array of projects we put up. I hope you find that in me too. :D

It was hard work, getting this tray done. The thin cork sheets couldnt be trimmed by the trimmer as it ripped easily. I had to cut down each sheet to fit the rectangular columns within the tray. I am so happy that it turned out the way I wanted to. The Maggie Holmes' Styleboard collection is my current favourite. I am such a CP fan and I think that will never change.

 I worked on a layout too. One of the techniques I love most is die cutting. This hand drawn heart shape filled with sequins is my way of personalizing and representing 'ME' on a page. Cant wait to use more of this colleciton on more layouts! 

Have a great week everyone!
 I will be back soon.
