The last standing railway station in Singapore – Tanjong Pagar Station. Even though most of the tracks have been removed, the place still retains it’s old world charm.

Recently I have been going back to my gold mist when I need some extra color for my layout. I like how it shimmers in the light so I’m guarding my tiny bottle of gold mist very carefully.

I like this pretty blue letter stickers with the gold lines.

I went all out with the layering. Love the way the stickers work with the photographs.

Have a great Monday.





So Fun


We were lucky to be gifted with two tickets for the National Day parade rehearsal and these were the lucky two that got to attend the event. I had a sheet of this Happy Birthday paper that was perfect for the photo since it was Singapore’s 50th Birthday party.

Getting back to messy work is never easy

I’ve been working on my monthly project life photos but the thought of stopping scrapbooking has been on the back of my mind. One half of me thinks it would be nice to clear out all my stash. Maybe start a new hobby that takes up less space yet the other half of me still can’t bear to stop. The creative process is what I enjoy the most. So after dragging my feet for the longest time, I printed out the photos, grabbed some supplies and dived in.

This is the layout that emerged. A little too clean and simple but good enough to start

Still love those enamel dots:

and lots of stickers:

Dusting off my table and back to more fun stuff.



Decoupage Card Making Demo at Spotlight, Singapore

I thought I should share a demo that I held at Spotlight sometime ago for Ruby Rock-it. It was a hands on session making using the Decoupage range.

It was a pleasure to work with many curious children and we all had a blast.

Here are some of the cards that we made:

I love how easy it was for the kids to make their own cards and the colors are so happy.



Paper Dollies Tutorial

Today I have a tutorial to share with you. Paper dollies are pretty but they are usually white or pink. That’s just so common so I thought it would be nice to make some to make whatever paper I’m using for my layout.

Here are the basic steps:

1. Trim your paper into a square.

2. Fold the square into a triangle.

3. Fold it again into a smaller triangle

4. If you are able to fold further, fold your triangle into a smaller triangle.

6. Trim off the curve and you have a basic dollie.

7. Continue cutting tiny holes into your triangle if you more details on your dollie.

8. Open it up and admire your hardwork.

Do have a try. Drop me a link to your work if you made some dollies too.



Hello There

I’ve been taking a break the last month and now I’m all ready to start sharing some of the layouts I’ve done for my DT assignments fro Ruby Rock-it, For this layout I’ve used the monochromatic color palette as my inspiration. Clean lines and minimal clutter on the layout.

Simple journaling done with a typewriter.

I layered my title with black at the bottom which helped create a floating feeling.
