Foodie love

This is my final final layout for my Europe trip!! Found these photos of food that we took in London (it's such a Singaporean thing, taking photos of your food, but somehow I can't resist) and decided to use them to scrap a layout for 2 challenges going on right now! One for frosted design (which is a sketch challenge, where I took the sketch n turned it 90 degrees, or is it 270 degrees) and the other one is for moments recorded (which is a theme challenge with the theme of love!)

I took somewhat longer than usual to. create this layout by first stamping and embossing on the top part of the paper before misting over my entire sheet while masking off blocks for my photos. Added some hand drawn stitches (note to self: must learn how to use the sewing machine I stole from my mum soon!!) and adhered the photos with washi tape, added little embellishment clusters at the corners of the photos, some journalling on a tag, my title, and I'm all done!

I love the effect of misting over embossed images, but am always so impatient that I end up over-melting my embossed images cos I use the heat gun to dry my misting!

Anyhoo, here's the layout!

Project life week 4

Well well! It has been an eventful week here in Singapore what with Chinese new year coming by!
This week's spread includes a 12x12 insert with 28 small instagram photos all courtesy of chinese new year!
I originally wanted to get a divided page protector with 3x3 pockets, but decided to use one of my old American Crafts pockets and adhered my photos to white cardstock. This turned out surprisingly nice especially with the small white border around each photo, which was the effect I was striving for till the photo printing shop screwed up my photos.
My weeks starts on Sunday and ends on Saturday. This really works for me cos I can use Saturday to edit the majority of the photos and bring it out for instant photo printing at Harvey Norman's Photocentre at $0.18 each(!!!) and print the rest of the photo on Sunday and put the entire spread together on Sunday.

Anyways, enough chatter, here are the spreads for this week.

My Europe Trip - part 2, Lucerne

The second city we hit was Lucerne in Switzerland. I loveeeeed this place cos it was so different from everywhere else I visited, and I've never been up a mountain before!
The main bulk of my layouts concentrated on our day excursion to mount pilatus on the golden round trip which consists of a boat ride, a gondola ride up, a luge ride and a cable car ride down!

So here goes!

Farewell card

:(( one of our close colleagues' last day is tomorrow.. Decided to make her a farewell card, hope she likes it!

Quite like the details on the card made mainly from prima flowers and resin pieces!

My Europe Trip - Part 1, Zurich

7 months after the trip, I've finally finished scrapping all the photos I wanted to! 51 pages in total (with 3 double page layouts) and an additional 3 pages of divided page protector!
I used an American crafts D-ring binder with additional page protectors, and here's what the completed album looks like!

I'll be sharing my layouts in 4 to 5 parts, split by countries!

So here goes!
