A layout and a booboo

Sharing another layout I did during the class at my LSS. The cool part of this layout is that it incorporates a mini book behind the album, meaning that I can put a ton (ok 10) more photos into my layout without cluttering it!
Realized after the class that I haven't been creating layouts with flowers on them and that I really miss flowers! Definitely gonna incorporate them on my next layout!
In other scrapbook related news, this silly girl here mistook glue tape refills for the runner itself n bought a couple of them without even having the runner. Damn. Now off to my LSS to buy the runner while there's still a discount going on!

Little moments

Love the photograph used in this layout which was taken during our wedding banquet!
Realized that candid shots are really great for capturing the emotions of the moment!
This layout is somewhat out of the ordinary for me, I usually prefer clean lines with more white space. Created during a class at my LSS, and thought it was a great learning experience! :)

Card set

Made this card and envelope set upon a request from a colleague. Came together quite quickly especially since I used the front n back of a single sheet!
I also decided to decorate the inside a little with some scraps and my (favourite!!) butterfly punch!
The envelope came together pretty easily as well using washi tape and my other butterfly punch! ;)

Breakfast!

It has been 2 extremely busy days at work, so much so that I didn't have any time at all to do any scrappy stuff :(
But anyway, on to happier things, here's a layout I did over the weekend about my favorite part of Paris! The croissant every morning! The buttery, fluffy goodness that when combined with strawberry preserve is my little piece of heaven! :)


Like I mentioned earlier, I'm absolutely in love with the Amy tangerine line with all it's gorgeous papers and embellies! Looking forward to using even more of it! :)

For my friends first nappie!

After procrastinating for about 3 weeks I've finally managed to print out this adorable photo of my friend's nephew (otherwise known as her nappie)!

A simple layout that came together really quickly so as not to take the focus away from that adorable face!
Some cut chickadees from a sheet of scraps and stamping using my new studio calico stamps! :)

I've recently discovered the beauty of scrapping from a single collection, i.e it takes me a whole lot less time in terms of coordinating papers n embellies! Think I'm going to spend some time mixing and matching some 'kits' up in advance for quicker scrapping.

Butterflies!


After getting my new punch and flowers from the LSS, I just had to use it on a layout!
This page was great for using up my scraps by punching out all my butterflies from little scraps!
One of my favorite layouts to date!

Hello!

Finally decided to start up a blog so that I'll have a place to keep a record of all the pages / cards / albums that I've been creating!
To start off the blog, here's a layout created using the new Amy tangerine line by American crafts! Absolutely love the bright colours in this line and can foresee myself using wayyy more of the stuff from this line!

Cut out little scraps of papers to form the hexagonal pattern to hopefully bring the eye towards the photo.
Enjoyed making this layout and hope you like it too!
