Jingle all the way

Thursday, December 3, 2009
Technically I made most of these cards last month but only completed some of them last night. I was so demotivated during that period and left them alone for so long to complete. Sorry for the super delay, darlings. Now I felt so good to have myself back to cards. My baby :) All these are yet to post it out to my dearly families and friends.

a cute small journal for my sis-in-law

layers of glitterly wings

I made all these ornaments by myself and I quite like the outcome of it. Before this, I put them at white cardstock and it didn't have the effect or it feel like lacking of something. So I only changed the base to kraft cardstock. Hope my recipients will like it as well.

I couldn't find the flexible wire in gold color at Sydney here. My luck or what, I found them at a craft store when I went to shopping with mum and sis at Chadston's Westfield (Melbourne). That's why it took me so long to complete them because I couldn't find them at Sydney. Now it's ready to post it out.

The coordinate envelope. I used marker to color the stamp with two different colors, red and green and stamped them at the envelopes.

I only made this card last night. So it still fresh and new. hehe :) I embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder at vellum cardstock. Too simple??

'joy to the world'

This one is fresh from the oven as well. I'm not really sure about this because I made this from bit and pieces. LOL :p probably need to cut short the length. Any suggestions?

I embossed the snowflakes with clear embossing powder. And for the sentiment, it's the same one as the one that I stamped at the ornament's envelope. It's just I played around with the colors and gave them a new look.

That's all about it. Hope you all like it. As usual. You guys feel free to drop me any comments or suggestions. Off to bake banana cake now. Lots of love from me

Melbourne/ Laurence's full month celebration

Monday, November 30, 2009
yoyo..gift from ah ma :)

Fun. Love. Good food. Joy. Basically we all had a good time during the Melbourne trip especially my parents flew all the way from Malaysia for their first grandson's full month celebration.

Tones of photo to share. Please click here to see what my family and I enjoyed ourselves during the one week of fun and joy.

The proud grandparents and parent of Laurence

Lacking of motivation

In just the past few weeks I've been trying to stay at craft room and make some cards like what I usually do. Each time I realize it's time to make some craft goodies, it always not the case. Lacking of motivation :( Haha.. but I thank you for my friends who make orders for Christmas's card. Before I flew to Melbourne for Laurence (my newborn's nephew) full month celebration, I completed 20 out of 35 cards and I took the remaining 15cards to Melbourne just to do final touch-up. But the worst part was I forgot to take photos of them.. Arghh. So far I only got 1 card to show it to you guys. 1 card!!! I'm such a slacker nowadays. Please forgive me.

I specially made this card for my colleague, Danniel who requested a anniversary card for his 4 years's girlfriend, Charlotte, who also my colleague as well. I'm glad she like it :)

The only thing she commented was the envelope. I'm currently using those post-letter envelope for most of my orders. She would prefer those we normally purchase from gift store or card section. It makes sense. Envelopes does effect the whole quality of the card as well. I really appreciate her suggestion and I probably will change it to those thicker envelope for my future orders :) to look more professional. Anyway, more updates are their way.

Happy Birthday, Marlene

Happy Birthday, Marlene!!

Dear Marlene, I did a little prayer for your birthday, and here's my prayer:

"On this your birthday, I pray for your happiness, of course, but also for a greater sense of fulfillment in work, an ease of communication with those you love, and a sense of satisfaction in all that you have accomplished. Above all, may you rest secure in the knowledge of God's constant love and care for you, personally. Lord, I also prayed that our friendship will grow stronger and last long. In Jesus name, amen. "

So sorry that didn't manage to call you last night. Anyhow, I wish you all the the best and we shall see each others again, soon :). Happy Birthday, once again!!

Lots of love,


Fun with craftcardstocks

Wednesday, November 4, 2009
Hey there! All these cards are made with SU's craft cardstocks and some coloring, cutting, stamping. I made all these cards yesterday in a super HOT day- 37 °C. So, please bear with me if you seen any boring design. Enjoy!

* I have this idea of selling my cards at Esty. I tried to apply at all sort of art market/exhibition but all got rejected. What they said was they already got similar products. hmm.. Should I?

M's Sketch #3

I was chatting with Marlene yesterday and we tried to compete who have the messier craft room. I said mine. I told her that my papers are all around the floor and bed. Seriously. I need to be more organize on this.

She was laugh out loud and told me that I should participate M's Sketch #3 to compete with sweetpeas around the world to see who have the messier room ever. *evil smile . Somehow, I felt a bit funny to show people out there how messy my craft room is *cough I just received my new stamp set from PapertreyInk this morning *wheee. It was so much to play with this cute stamp set. So, here's my card for this sketch :)

I rotated the sketch from portrait to horizontal layout. I added some glitter on the tulips as well after I colored them with my old school's marker pen. After that, I drew some outline with my white gel pen. To be honest, I'm a bit disappointed with my faux stiching on this card. It didn't turn out what I really want and due to the warm weather, I can't really concentrate *blame the weather.. haha Oh well.. Hope you girls like it :)

The tale of Desperaux

     Images taken from here

Now. Maybe some of you have already watch this cute little mouse's cartoon, 'The Tale of Despereaux' last year but I just came across this movie when foxtel shows it recently. This cute mouse with unusually big eyes attracted my attention. Then, I got the chance to watch this afternoon. 

I must say I'm a kid person. Love it. I would highly recommend you guys/girls to watch together with your kiddos or even Big kiddos *wink . I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it. Unlike so many children's film these days. :)

::here's only 1 thing 2 do, 3 words 4 you - i love you::

I dedicate this song to my darling parents, brothers,sisters, girlfriends and boyfriends out there :)

Lyrics to 1234
Give me more loving than I’ve ever had
Make me feel better when I’m feeling sad
Tell me I’m special even though I know I’m not
Make me feel good when I hurt so bad
Barely getting mad
I’m so glad I found you
I love being around you
You make it easy
Its as easy as 1-2-1-2-3-4
There’s only one thing
To Do
Three words
For you
(I love you) I love you
There’s only one way to say
Those three words
That’s what I’ll do
(I love you) I love you
Give me more loving from the very start
Piece me back together when I fall apart
Tell me things you never even tell your closest friends
Make me feel good when I hurt so bad
You’re the best that I’ve had
And I’m so glad I found you
I love being around you
You make it easy
It’s easy as 1-2-1-2-3-4
There’s only one thing
To Do
Three words
For you
(I love you) I love you
There’s only one way to say
Those three words
That’s what I’ll do
(I love you) I love you
(I love you) I love you
You make it easy
It’s easy as 1 2 1 2 3 4
There’s only one thing
To Do
Three words
For you
(I love you) I love you
There’s only one way to say
Those three words
That’s what I’ll do
(I love you) I love you
(I love you) I love you
I love you
(I love you) I love you

I miss..

dunno... basically ..



Tuesday, October 27, 2009
One of my friend, Shu, had ordered 35 christmas cards with 3 different designs for her friends and family. So far, I only finished 20cards, 15 more to go. First, she likes the christmas tree that I created on gift tag a while ago. So, here's what I finished so far.

1st design: A Very Christmas To You

2nd Design: Brrr and Joy

Fun design and cute snowmans' design. Hope she like it. Luckily she gave me plenty of time to prepare and I do not need to rush. 15 more to finish. 

Other than that, I also created two boxes for my lovely friends. Yet to be post. I'm so so sorry to the delay. I promise I'll post it out a.s.a.p. I just couldn't resist to add more stuff :p

I created these boxes from cardstock and embossed their initial with clear embossing powder.

I'm not too what's their favourite color, but hope they will like it. 

Cards shown as an example only. They will only find out what's inside when they receive it. Hehe :D

Creamchesse frosting Cuppie

Saturday, October 17, 2009

I baked these cupcakes about a week ago and now finally got the time to upload it. I found this recipe online and decided to give it a try. Believe me or not. I only used a quarter amount of the frosting. 

So, the rest was way too much for 24 cuppies. Probably you guys can cut down the amount of frosting, else you can stick with the recipe if you love frosting.

TESC#86 Card 4

This will be the last card I made for the challenge. My friend ordered a card that special made for her nephew's 1st birthday. The craft pattern paper is from Jillibean and the monkey is from Taylor's Beary Special stamp set. I faux stitched the bottom three circle with white pen as the brads. Haha.. not sure whether it make any sense to y'all or not.

Hope you like my creation and do leave me any comments. I {love} to see how people think about my cards. :) Good night, peeps!

TESC#86 Card 3

Friday, October 16, 2009
Here's the third card that I created for this challenge. Again, I punched out 2 different color card stocks with circle scallop punch. After I punched them out, I cut along the scallop edge.

The sentiment that I used is from Taylor's From the love of cupcakes stamp set. SUH-Sweet! Love the stamp set.

TESC#86 Card 2

Here's the second card for TECS#86. This card is more sweet and girly because of the icre cream :)

All the card stocks are from SU! and I punched out 3 scope of ice cream with circle scallop punch. The sentimen is from SU! as well.

Paper piercing around the border.

TESC#86 Card 1

I was able to participate Taylor's challenge. Here's my first card for the challenge. Finally I have chance to sit down and make some cards.

this is the sketch for this challenge

The pattern paper is from Making Memories and all other card stocks are from SU! The bear image that I used is from Taylor's Beary Special stamp set and for the sentiment, it's from the same stamp set as well. I also drew faux stitches along the sentiment and brown brads at the bottom.

I added some glitter powder from SU! at the wings. Hmmph.. but can't really see the effect in here. Probably I have practice more on photo taking. Hehe..OR... a more professional camera.. hehe.

After weeks of waiting, my cousin-in-law, Gillian who now live far away from Australia, Dubai which is, had finally receive the card that I specially made for her. A pumpkin with her name on. This was the first pumpkin that I created with other cards a while ago. I'm glad that she likes the pumpkin card that I prepared for her.

I {heart} the technique of shimmer lately.
