Timeless Twine: Say it Write – Boo!

Hello there! Today, I’m sharing with you something fun I created for Halloween on Timeless Twine’s blog. While Halloween is not celebrated as widely here as it is in Singapore, I thought it would be fun to create something that not just fits in with the festival, but also serve as a fun and cute gift. So, that set the tone for these cute looking pencil toppers:

These little critters were really fun to create. I made three pom-poms, each of a different fluff level and went to town embellishing them with goggly eyes. For the spider, I inserted some pipe cleaners in the middle for legs and added a little bow for that additional touch of cuteness.

Once I was happy with how these looked, I hot glued them to the top of some pencils and they were ready to be given as gifts. You might even want to use these as embellishments on straws at a Halloween party or perhaps as a gift topper. The possibilities are endless! I hope you have some pom-pom critter fun!

Clique Kits: Thanks for Everything!

Has it been a year already? Today, I am taking the time to be grateful for the amazing opportunity I had over the past year to be part of Clique Kit’s first design team. I have been making it a point to keep a little something from each of the kits I received in the past year, in order to put them together in a project at the end of my term. So using all the items I had squirrelled away, together with the awesomely gorgeous September kit that features goodies from Cocoa Vanilla Studio which I love, I created this:

CK Hello FN

A two page layout that pays homage to all the colors being on this team has brought to my life. I had loads of fun adding water color to the pretty black and white bloom paper from Cocoa Vanilla Studio at the top of the page and decided that banners was the way to go to incorporate all the beautiful papers and ephemera I had in my Clique Kits stash.

Here’s a closer look at the pages:

CK Hello Left FN

Dear CK founders, thank you for everything. Thanks for believing in me, for giving me the opportunity to represent your amazing ethos and kit and most importantly, for welcoming me into the CK family, where I have been so inspired and challenged to create and dream in ways I never thought possible.

This has truly been one rainbow-tastic ride!

Timeless Twine: September Monthly Page

Hello there! Today, I’m sharing my monthly page for September on Timeless Twine’s blog.

Every month, I ask myself, ” where has all the time gone?” And I really have no answer. Am thankful that I have my planner with me to make the most of what is given to me and for this month, I went with a predominantly orange spread.

For the top of my page, I used a calendar die cut from Maya road and embellished it with some lovely twine and a stamped image. I also decided to have fun with my markers by writing the number nine here.

I decided to stamp those big floral circles from the Camera Stamp Set “Oh Snap” in the background for each day’s square. To prevent this from dominating the writing space, I used a lighter toned ink and a grey pen to write the date for each square.

For the bottom of the page, I had some fun embellishing with a doily, a sticker arrow and the balance of my calendar die cut and stamped image.

I hope September has been fruitful for you thus far. Seize the day!

Timeless Twine: Tworrific Two!

Hi there! I’m going to admit here that I often find myself playing catch-up in terms of my scrapbook pages. My little one is five this year and here I am, scrapping about her second birthday. =) Happy that I got round to it finally and am sharing it on Timeless Twine’s blog today. So here it is:

I kept the cake topper from the birthday celebration and decided that it would be a good idea to scrap the page around it. I have been hoarding Crate Paper’s Pretty Party collection for many years now, and decided that it was only appropriate that I used it for this page.

To add on to the celebratory mood on this page, I created a mini tassel bunting at the top of the page using raspberry lemonade twine and lemonade yellow twine. To unify the entire effect, I decided to pull two strands of the same twines across the bottom of the page. Adding some sequins added the much needed sparkle here.

And just like that, I’m so glad I get to tick this layout off my to scrap list and even happier that all these gorgeous twine made the job so much easier. Perhaps you might like to scrap a birthday page too? =)

Cocoa Vanilla Studio: You & Me

Hello there! I’m really excited today as I share this page I created using Cocoa Vanilla Studio’s latest collection, Life is Beautiful:

You & Me FN

I love the colours in this collection and that string art here which took quite a bit of time, but totally worthwhile! I created that by using a cut file from The Cut Shoppe as a template. Details of this layout can be found on Cocoa Vanilla Studio’s blog.

Have a beautiful day!

Clique Kits: Seven Paper Amelia Collection

Hi there! Popping in to share a couple of pages I created with some yummy papers from Seven Papers that can be found in the Clique Kits store. Love how bold the colors are and they were perfect for these two layouts:

Super FN

This was created to remember the first time the hubs went overseas for a week without us for work and how much these little kiddos missed him. Love how eagerly they anticipated his return and welcomed him home with home made signs. That gold pane and hand waving worked well for my topic here!

Next up, a picture of the little man who has learnt to ask to have his picture taken. Love his charming smile and I just had to scrap this one:

Timeless Twine: Happy Teachers’ Day!

Hello there! In Singapore, Teachers’ Day is celebrated on the first Friday of September annually. I thought making a little personalized notebook will be a suitable gift for my little girl’s teachers. I share this on Timeless Twine’s blog today.

After binding my own notebooks, I embellished them with Cape Cod twine, doilies, stickers and tags from Bella Creationz. I also used stamps to add more hearts to the tag, as well as create a little banner.

I really love the combination of grey and yellow and think they make for such a gorgeous twine. Hence, I went on to create tassels for each notebook as well.

I hope this inspires you to create your own notebook, perhaps as a gift or even for yourself. Till the next post!
