A good friend mentioned that I no longer post on Thursdays. I guess life got the best of me. Thursdays are now my busiest day so I’ll just have to post on a different day of the week. I hope you had your crafting break this week or are you waiting for the weekend to break out those papers ?
I made this page for a challenge over at the Made With Love forum. The challenge was to use 80% of the same manufacturer’s materials on a layout. That got me inspired to use my older My Little Shoebox stash sitting in the bookshelf. Almost everything is by MLS except for the yellow alpha stickers, the ink and stamps.
It’s amazing how the same stash looks different after you have had a break from them. Everything feels new and inspiring.
I stamped the sentiment and used my sewing machine to sew on the punched out scallop circles.
I love the laundry stickers and that little bird just seems perfect right on top of the laundry line.
Until the next post. Have a great week.
After hording this tray for months, I finally gathered enough courage to start altering it. Things just look so intimidating when you want to start on a new journey but what I’ve learnt is that once you take the first step, things will begin to fall into place. Just take baby steps and learn as you go. I started with an empty white tray and by working on one window at a time there was nothing to be afraid of.
Lots of My Little Shoebox goodness here.
The cardstock stickers work great and I didn’t have to fussy cut the elements !
Thanks for dropping by. Do come by again soon.
I wanted to make a board to note down messages and this picture frame was just prefect for my use. The front was plastic and not glass so I didn’t have to worry about the kids playing with it and getting hurt.
Close up of the little girl in kimono from My Little Shoebox. This board has been gifted to a dear friend Alicia for out handmade gift swap.
Here is the board in action.
The My Little Shoebox team is doing a blog hop today to say good bye to outgoing team members for the 2010-11 Design Team. The design team is so talented and it has been an honor to be included among them.
If you drop by from Heather‘s blog, welcome over. If you didn’t, you can start from the beginning of the hop over at MLS blog and take part in all the action.
I’d like to bid a fond farewell to a wonderful company with some layouts that created this month which are current some of my favorite projects.
I love the cute bird stamps and check out the grass I made from pattern paper.
Quick layering with those cardstock sticker.
Same yet different
So proud of this ticket that I made myself.
Their boyish charming smiles
Randomly splattered mist
And stamped and layered clouds.
Glad you made it all the way to the end of the post. Time to say goodbye. Now hop over to Kathleen‘s blog for more MLS goodness. There will be a huge prize for one lucky hopper at the end of the hop so remember to make your way back to the MLS blog.
Here’s a layout done with the Oasis line form My Little Shoebox. There is a funny story connected to these few photographs. It was the 3-5-7 festival when we visited the place and it was filled with families taking pictures with their children who were of that age. The little one decided to join the crowd and walked towards the nearest family and this guy just scooped him up and lifted him into their family picture !
Pop the tag up with some foam dots.
Love the tone and tone on this layout.
It’s time for a new My Little Shoebox Sketch challenge over at our blog! Get ready to dig into your stash of MLS goodies and create with us!
Here’s the sketch that Aphra created just for My Little Shoebox this month:
Here’s my take on the sketch using the Garden Party collection.
Cute flowers and buzzing bees !
Do drop by My Little Shoebox blog to check out the DT’s take on the sketch. Til next ime, have a great weekend.
Here’s my last assignment layout using MLS’s summer breeze collection. Just having fun, cutting up the papers into blocks and then arranging them again to form my own pattern background.
Close up view of the layering.
Don’t you think the clothing on the clothes line is totally cute ? Good thing it’s a cardstock sticker else I’ll be sitting at home cutting the little pieces out to use on the layout.
Somehow this phase kept going through my mind when I was looking at these photos. My kids must be sick of posing for the camera all the time. Still, they will appreciate this when they are all grown up and look back at the memories. At least that’s what I tell myself . These 2 little birdies from the Summer Breeze collection remind me of these two standing in front of the mum’s camera!
Close up view. Those stickers and die-cuts making creating elements so easy. Less fussy cutting work for me.
I stamped the border with the doodle swirls clear stamp from the same collection.
The kids are on a 1 week school break and that means chaos at home !! LOL.
Here’s sharing a card I did for my MLS assignment. The birds are just right for a lovely card. Actually just right for a wedding anniversary card. Mine to be exact. We have been married for 14 blissful years. OK not all are blissful but enough for us to remember all the good times and forget the bad ones.
Alright, back to the card, I tried doodling on the loops to emphasise on them but trying to stay within the line wasn’t very easy.
Here’s another view of the layered heart.
Til the next post. Good bye.
