Timeless Time: Have a Bloomin’ Good Time!

Hello there! How’s your Summer been so far? Here in Singapore, where the season varies from hot, hotter or can’t get any hotter, we have been having a dry spell and the readings on the thermometer have never been higher!

The best way to take my mind off the heat is to sip a mug of chilled honey lime drink and get down to creating some sizzling fun project. So here’s my blooms filled card for this season, which I share on Timeless Time’s blog today:

Hello Summer Card Final

I played with some lemonade distress inks for the background and embellished to my heart’s content with those flowers that were colored with alcohol inks. Each bloom is embellished by simply winding twine around them, before topping them with a button.

I completed the card by stamping a greeting using the ever versatile Hello Summer stamp set and sprinkled on some sequins. I hope you have some fun creating this Summer, while enjoying the season as well! Links to the products I used are as follows:

Clique Kits: Hello There Sunshine

blog-image_locker-room

Salutations everyone!  I am so happy to be sharing with you my first page using the wonderful, wonderful August kit, “Ambrosia” from Clique Kits. I love the images and colors in this kit very much and had so much fun matching my pictures to all the wonderful yummy colors found in my kit.

To create this page, I first decided that I would go with a grey and pink color scheme to match my pictures. I love the patterns of those polka dots, but could not get past that ledger paper design as well. So, to get the best of both worlds, I decided to flip a strip of the ledger paper right down the middle of my layout. I also took a similar approach by adding some of those gorgeous grey floral prints down both sides of the page.

Once the background was in place, I placed my photos and the “Hello There” journal card in the middle of the page. Because I wanted to draw further attention to the title, I decided that the transparent tag would be a wonderfull addition to the page. I cut this is half in order to have it long enough to peek out at the top and bottom of my title. I added a handmade tassel and that totally cute flamingo flair for added interest.

I kept the embellishments on this page simple. I used the stickers from Pink Paislee and those cute wooden buttons to create a banner for the top of the page, attached some butterflies and flower images and adhered some heart stickers onto the gold edged tag and decided that those were ample for this page.

Finally, for my journaling, I thought it would be fun to write it along the edges of my decorative patterned paper at the bottom of the page. In so doing, this arrow shaped patterned paper continue to help draw one’s eyes to the photos, while allowing me a space to write my thoughts as well. Toss on a flamingo and a bloom and I was done!

Thanks for joining me today. I hope you have fun creating a page that shows off the gorgeous prints of both sides of the same patterned paper.

Timeless Twine: Drive On!

Hello there! today on Timeless Twine’s blog, I’m sharing with you my pocket style page spread about the time when I learnt to drive while pregnant with my first kid. I was fortunate to be taught by my wonderful husband how to drive when we were residing in Australia and we took the opportunity to go on frequent roadtrips in order for me to have ample practice on the road. Talk about killing two birds with one stone!

We had so many wonderful memories in the 74 days I took to get my license that I needed 3 pocket style pages to do this life experience justice. I used a predominantly bright pink and yellow color scheme for these pages. I love how the raspberry pink and lemonade yellow twines were a perfect fit for this color scheme.

I also had fun embellishing these pages using Chic Tag’s papers and wood veneers. I think the tags, gold doilies and Hello Summer stamp set were the perfect elements to complement and capture all the wonderful times we had going around Australia.

Thank you for taking the time to join me today. The products I used to complete these pages are as follow:

Timeless Twine: July Monthly Planner Page

Hello there! Can you believe that half the year is over and we are already in July? Today, I’m sharing my July monthly page from my planner on Timeless Twine’s blog.

In line with Summer, I went with a bright color scheme for the month – yellow and raspberry pink. These colors are perfect together and I love how the lemonade twine and raspberry pink  twine from Bella Creationz are perfect for me to use to embellish these pages with.

I wound these twine around each letter of “July” to add color to the page. I also love the geotag stamp found in the planNERD 2 stamp set. I used it in each day’s box and added the date to it. Finally, I also used the Hello Summer Stamp set to embellish these pages further. Add on a splash of yellow dots to the background and I was done!

Thanks for joining me today. All the products I used to create this project are linked below:

Clique Kits: Life is Full of Joy

Hi there! Here’s another page I created recently using items from Clique Kits store. I can’t imagine how fast time has gone by! This photo was taken three years back, when my little girl just turned two and we were only a family of three. With her in our lives, each day is full of fun and joy!

Life is Full of Joy FN, 2colortypes sophie @cliquekits, #cliquekits #chickaniddy #7paper #scrapbooking #papercraft

That gorgeous postcard that is exclusively designed by Clique Kits was certainly appropriate for this page and I love all the wonderful in house designs CK comes up with. Once I knew that I wanted to feature that postcard and the photo on this page, I decided to tilt all my elements at an angle and took it all from there.

I love that bright yellow found Chickaniddy’s 365 collection and decided to go with a predominantly yellow and black color scheme. Loads of circles on this page as well, which I die cut from the patterned papers in the collection, as well as hand drew some.

Once I was happy with my design, I stitched on the row of circles in the middle of the page and layered various journaling cards around the photo and postcard. I think tilting elements on a page certainly brings about a certain degree of fun and I was certainly thrilled with the overall effect.

If you are looking to buy the items I used on this page, they are all available in the Clique Kits store. Use SOPHIE10 and you get a further 10% off your purchase. Have a fantastic week ahead!

Hi there! I have this photo lying on my table for a while now and when Clique Kits sent me this load of yummy stuff from Chickaniddy’s 365 collection, I knew it was perfect for this photo.

I kept the page simple, focusing on how thankful I am for our being together everyday. I liked the strip of boxes which had the days of the week labeled on them and used that as an anchor on the right side of the page. I went on to layer various patterned papers and journal cards around my photo.

For my title, I kept it easy by using the ampersand from 7 Paper. This was layered on top of a journal card, before adding a couple of flairs to the page. Love the flairs from Cliques. They are always so beautiful and the quality is amazing! I added a ribbon to the corner of the photo, sprinkled on some Liquid Pearl dots and white paint and was happy.

Thanks for stopping by. Should you be interested in the materials used to create this page, they are available (other than the ribbon) in the Clique Kits store. AND if you use SOPHIE10, you get a further 10% discount off your purchase. There’s a massive sale on there right now. So get shopping! =)
