Happy Little Life

I love the tiny Instax photos from my Instax camera but sometimes I really don’t know how to use them. Should I put them into an album ? But then I forget where and when they were taken and even the story behind each photo. So I thought I should try using them in my layouts instead or leaving them in storage.

I love that I can use the pink hues in my stash.

A little sprinkle of color is always fun.

I must say I do like the pastels in this page. Nice and soft.

Hello there. It’s the month of April and time for a brand new inspiration over at Ed Sketch¬† Create a layout with the sketch below and make sure you use an arrow stamp on you layout. Do remember to have fun.

Here is my take on the challenge:

 photo SayGoodBye2_SB_26Mar14_zpsb4a85451.jpgUsing several of AC stickers here. I had a pack of them but I didn’t like the quality. Stickers refused to come off the backing clean which didn’t make the creative experience too fun.

Of course the happy smile in the photo did make up for it.

Until my next post,



Saying Good Bye to a Good Year with RRBF

It has been a good year working for Ruby Rock-it and I had a blast working with all the talented ladies in the team.

Here is my last project using the lovely Fusion papers. I like that the opposite sides of each sheet of paper is a contrasting pattern so it looks great when you make them into pinwheels for a party or just as decorations.

Birthday Cards

Sharing the cards I made for RRBF this month. Since there are Birthday Cards, I wanted to add lots of happy colors to the cards. I hit the left card with mist. Lots of mist ! The effect just made me happy.

I added curled strips of paper to compliment the party hat. It reminds me of party streamer and party popper.

Project Life – March

I have been diligently working thought my stash of papers and Project Life cards, resisting the temptation to buy new stash just for Project Life.¬† But this month I couldn’t resist the pretty overlays from MME Record It! ‘Follow Your Heart’ and the tiny WRMK Instagram¬† cards.

Nothing too layered, just stickers and paper.

There is nothing like new stash to inspire and it so happens that I’m finally on schedule for Project Life this week !



Project Life – Updated

Ever since I first started Project Life it had always been a race to get my project life entries up to date. Thing happen and that usually puts a stop to any updates and then I have a huge backlog to clear. Still all the work is worth it when I flip through the entire year of entries. This year I shall attempt to keep up the pace.

Here are some pages from the second half of February:
