Its a relieved

I can now stretch my leg and relax. I finally finish all my big custom orders and i'm so happy that i delivered them on time. Its great to be back at my scrapping table...scrapping for myself! It was so chaotic at my scrap table for the past few weeks and my kids been complaining that i'm just so busy. Poor them...i'm all theirs for this weekend! My eldest son, Qawiem was so happy and the moment he saw me when i pick him up from school...." So u finished all your scrapwork? Can we play now?" Poor him....yes yes...we can now play!

Ohh...i did my pop class with the guy that i mentioned in my previous post....the class lasted for 5 hours! Oh well, i'm kinda impressed with him...he did well for a first timer! He finished everything and off he goes to his girlfriend to present his hard work! How romantic!

My re branding of my handmade shop - Glitz Creations is almost done. The new logo is ready and i'm very happy with my designer. She did an amazing job and we are now looking into extracting some graphics from Glitz blog design to be the cover for my handmade journal. The graphics will soon be my journal trademark! I'm excited! Here is the new logo....please do leave comments and i really want to know how you feel about it.

Again...i'm very grateful that i was given an opportunity by Jaime to play with Calico Kits again. I had so much fun and seriously i'm in love with Calico now! Be it layout or canvas....papers are just versatile and easy to work with. Here is my creations..

Btw, June kits is now available @ 3 Scrappy Boys. Do check them out. I will update in the next post on my new projects using their main kit. The kits is to die for...everything looks yummy it it. Here is peeks...

Till again...take care..

Still Crazy But...

Things a still crazy back here but i decided to sit back and enjoy scrapping for myself. I missed the previous TCR challenge and i couldn't help myself for not participating # 60. I've been eyeing on my latest Webster Page which has been sitting on my scrap table for the past 2 weeks. ...ohh i'm having a crush on Webster Page and i'm still there. LOL! I was at a quilt shop last few days and i found Fabric Paper which you can print photos on them. Usually they use it for quilt or bags....and i thought it will be great for my project. So this time, i'm experimenting using Fabric Papers and here is the outcome. If you look closely...one picture i print on the pattern paper and the other one i print them on Fabric Paper. I thought this is cool. Hope u like them too.


Later..

Super Pops Album

I had this opportunity to meet a customer, happen to be a guy at Papier...and he wanted to do a little special for his girlfriend's birthday. He showed me a you tube video of a few pop ups cards combined to be a book. And he is looking for someone to teach him how to do it. Frankly it was really a challenge for me. Creating something like this...trying to figure out the mechanism of the album. Well....i'm kinda happy it turns out like this...but seriously i spend too much hours on it. But hey...i'm happy to tell that guy now...lets meet! I'm ready to teach you! For those who are interested, you can email me or Papier so that we can organise the class for you too!

Overwhelmed

I know there is no one else to be blame but me...i think i over committed on custom orders and i have yet to stop creating for the past 2 weeks. I'm stuck like a glue to my scrapping table almost everyday for almost 10 hours per day.Thats crazy right??? I know is good for the business but on the other hand, i'm exhausted. Is hard for me to turn down my customers. I should really learn how to say no sometimes. I think the exhaustion part i could leave with it, but i'm more stressed for not being able to scrap for myself! Haha...LOL!!!

So i did it tonight....i put away all the orders and i just have to play with my new stash that just came in. Yippeee....thanks to 3 Scrappy Boys...your shipment came seriously fast! As i was going thru my scrapping to do list...i know that i've yet to submit the OUAS latest challenge! Nadia, is hard not to participate...your challenge is always so fun! So here it is....using Echo Park Summer Days...presenting my DAUGHTER...hehehe...


Ladies, for those who dropped by and leave such a darling words....you ladies are really awesome. From bottom of my heart....thank you thank u.

Till again....

Webster Page

You know sometimes i wonder myself what kind of scrapper i am. I noticed some scrapper always have the same style which is their own trademark. I envy this people because i cannot seems to find one for myself! LOL. Being fickle doesn't help it at all. I love everything...i don't really have special brand or scrapping style that i like. I just love anything that captures my eyes. Like now, for the past 1 week i've been eyeing on Webster Page. Everything looks yummy especially the new CHA stuff.

As for scrapping style, i don't really have one. I'm the type of person who likes to try everything. I get bored scrapping same style every time. Is that good or bad? Haha... Anyway, here i am sharing with you my take on TCR #58 Challenge.


I also did a page as birthday gift for a friend of mine...she's actually my breakfast partner.Still using Webster Page! I'm not sure how long this craving gonna last but i'm enjoying it. Love WP.

Studio Calico

I was very honored to be given an opportunity to feel and create projects using Studio Calico May Add On Kit. Specials thanks to Jaime Lee....you have been such a dear and sweet friend and i'm very grateful to meet you! I was a bit worried at first when i lay my hands on Studio Calico stuff. I guessed the papers are new to me and i wasn't very sure what to do with it. As i play along with it, altered it...well is not that difficult. Frankly it is quite versatile and is all depends on how you use it. My creations this time is not a layouts...i thought to give it a try to do an altered project. I made this cube from a very thick chipboard which i join them together using glossy accents. When the cube is strong, then i start decorating it. So here it is...


Till again...take care

Old School

Hello fellow scrapper...

How are you? I hope everything is great on your end. Did you get to scrap? err...i did! It was definite a great feeling for sure. I have yet to come to an exhaustion...i hope not! Hehe... Almost every night i'm in my craft room. Poor hubby, always left alone downstairs. Not that he minds but i know i should make a point to spend more time with him. What about you? Does your hubby mind if you spend your nights scrapping? Well i hope not!

Ohh i was little excited....err...maybe too excited that my name was announced as one of the winner of NSD Echo Park Challenge last week. My latest mini album - "Bit and Pieces of You" that got me that spot! Thanks Echo...it was great to see my name in your FB Page!. Can't wait to receive my goodies.

During my recent meetup with my scrapping buddy... Jaime Lee, i was given an opportunity to play some of her stuff in her shop. For those who doesn't know her...Jaime is the owner of online scrapbook shop called...Scrappin Studio. I started my playtime with the line from Pink Paislee called Old School. Back in my craft room, i had bunch of die cuts envelope which is about 6.5" x 6.5". I had that custom cut for me and i all almost all the colors. So i thought it would be nice to make use of the envelopes. So here it is....my Old School Album. Thanks Jaime!

Do check out Scrapping Studio, as Jaime is offering 50% on this line. I hope my project will inspire you to try this line.

Couldn't Get Enough

I'm talking about Echo Park Papers. Hahaha...i'm always in love with their collections.Colorful and fun bright colors does make scrapping easier for me...i find it easy to match all their pattern papers. Every time i buy Echo Park Papers, i will always ended up with 2 set of each pattern paper. I'm always very fickle when it comes to Echo Park papers....everything looks nice.

I'm not sure how you ladies celebrate NSD...but i was lucky to be stuck in my scrapping room for the whole day and 1 created 3 projects!

Project 1........Bit and Pieces Of U...Mini Album

Notes how do i create them:
  1. This album is made of Maya Road Canvas Album.
  2. The background on the canvas was done by using alcohol ink which i blend with water and i dab it to the canvas.
  3. Once it is dry i spray the canvas using Tattered Angel Misting Spray
  4. This album was decorated using Springtime, Playground And Little Girl Collection.
  5. Most papers that i used i adhered with Mod Podge

Project 2...Layout ... My Little Boys

Did you see how much fun i had creating this layout? I was actually doing at least 3 layers of papers. I basically adhered the first layer and then i plan my 2nd layer. I used quite a bit of 3D foam tape which i choose the thickest ones.


Project 3 ..... Layout...You and Me
I used the papers from Be Mine Collection. The papers are really romantic and lovely for picture like this! Hehe...It has the shabby chic colors and i just love all the papers inside and it does created a really nice palette. The beautiful elements such as swirls, hot air balloon, keys , bird cages....does make a scrapbooker like me to make full use of the papers. Totally in love with this goodness.

I hope u like what u see here and I really really thankful for those who drop by my blog and leave lovely comments for me. You gals rocks!
