Sending My Wishes...


This is a simple card that I made, a bit of not my usual style but yet I like the combination of Red and Gold.

Recently I like to add lot of dies cutting in my card and I really enjoy the art of the die cut. I used the leaves and Christmas Bell to decorate the cards and add the snow flakes embossing as the background.

I will send this card to my dearest friend and wish her Merry Christmas and Happy New Year...
Enter Challenge Again...

Friday Sketcher - Sketch 82

This is one of my fav Penny Black Stamp, new release and is a cling stamp. This stamp was brought by Erland and he wanted to send this to Andrew's mother.

Erland did the coloring and I help to do some touch up here.

This card instead of using the flower I choose to use the ornament, this ornament is from QuicKutz and I used it to match with DCWV Christmas pattern paper.

Hope that Andrew's mom will like and this red color is her favorite color...
Hand in Hand

This Scrapbook is for Andrew's parent. I use the title of Hand in Hand cos daddy is holding mummy's sweet.

I used the two different alphabet for the wording here and they just perfectly matched...the "HAND" here I used Diesel from QuicKutz and the "hand" is Yogurt from QuicKutz too.

The 3-D butterflies are from Graphic 45's pattern paper, two are just nice here. I lifted the page higher so that when I place it in the shadow box it will gives the 3-D effect.

I did some distressing and stampig here to make the title more outstanding.

And this is how it looks like when placing the page in the Shadow Box.
Mother & Son

Andrew asked me to help him do the scrapbook for his mother as a Christmas Gift, I have to complete this as soon as possible so that he can bring back to his home town during Christmas.

I just like the whole feeling of this scrapbook page that I did. I used lot of clock here and this is to remind him that he needs to treasure the love from his mother and spend more time with his mother as he can.

Mother's love is being words and I hope that auntie will like this master piece.

This is the complete work in the shadow box.
X'mas Gift for Slumber Party...

I used this empty to decorate it like a wrapper, meaning is after I decorate it, there is no need to warp the box again and I can give the gift to the person who I have selected her name before.

These are what I bought for her, they are two beautiful mag from Tangs and I just like the mag, one is the handbags and the other one is the evening dresses... I hope that she will like it.

Yes, these are the picture of the turnover of the empty box. I use distress inks, pattern paper from Basic Grey, Prima Flowers, and of course the QuicKutz dies to cut out the flourish shapes and alphabets.

This is really a good idea so that she can reuse the box instead of throwing away and also I have save one wrapping paper. Save the earth...

A Post Card Album...Magic Tour

I used this Sat and Sun to make this post card album. My best friend Becky went for the Europe tour last month and these are the postcard that sent by her.

So sweet of her and I really like all the postcards, is really looking forward to open my mail box everyday after work. Thanks Becky.

I started with DCWV Rustic collection pattern paper and cut it into the album shape. This album die cut is from QuicKutz the Santa Workshop collection. The set that I used was the GingerBread set, and this is my favorite.

I distressed it with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo distress ink follow by stamping.

Yes, these are my collection of the rubber stamps. These stamp is very unique and they are all from Hero Arts. These are so suitable for doing a travel album.

Here is the individual page where I categorized it by name of places that Becky went. Her first stop was Praque.

Second place should be Budapest but too bad the postcard never I continue her journey with Salzburg.




And last stop is London...I used the map of London, is a bit small but that is the only UK map stamp that I have...

The back of the pocket, this is also one of the die cut from GingerBread...

The front of the pocket.

Front Cover.


The back

Oh yah, I started to use Tim Holtz's Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint...I just can't help and fall in love with this media. Is easy to use, and also quick dry...

Butterfly is from Hero Arts latest Cling Stamp collection.

All the alphabet are Nutmeg by QuicKutz...

The new cookie cutter from QuicKutz...

Sending Birthday Wishes...

I managed to get this old stamp from JDA, and this is from Penny Black. This time round I tested the new Epicsix embossing and the result is very satisfying...not regret to own it...

Again the coloring method is using color pencil with blending agent Sansodor, I think I'm more comfortable with this method and is easy to control the colors and tones.

I'm using the new embossing powder from American Craft, the one that I used was Chestnut and I just like the effect. One good thing about this new embossing powder is very clean and you wont get mess around when pouring the powder. Is another must have items.

I'm done with this card and will be sending this card to a Birthday Girl tomorrow, Jo...
