Spring Blooms

I hope spring has arrived where you are right now because I just love it when the flowers start blooming and there is color everywhere you look. Its nice and sunny over here in Singapore and I needed some cool blue to tone things down.

I misted my white background with blue and if you take a look closely, you can see the texture I added with gesso and a mask.

I decided to bring out my bottles of mist for some workout and it was fun. I made my own background paper for this challenge and I’m loving it.

Here are some close ups of the layout:

Creating a Shaker Element Tutorial

Just crawling out of hibernation. I’ve been a little busy with stuff and the time just flew by. I thought I had this post scheduled but it didn’t post. So here is my tutorial for simple shaker cards.  I made some shaker cards last month and thought it would be fun to share the steps with everyone.

First, lets get all the materials ready.

 photo Tutorial_ShakerCard4_zpsimonowln.jpgYou will need:

a. Pattern paper for the top frame of your shaker

b. Chipboard

c. Base image for the shaker

d. Clear acetate

e. Glitter or Sequins


1. PIck an image from your patterned paper for the base image. For this project I choose this lovely image from RRBF’s My Romance line.

2. Cut the chipboard, acetate and top frame to the same size as your base image.

3. Leaving a 0.5″ to 0.75″ border, cut out the middle sections of your chipboard and top frame just like the picture above.

4. Make a sandwich with the base image at the bottom, followed by the chipboard frame, acetate and top frame. Check that all layers align correctly before we start gluing the shaker together. I use a wet glue for this project as it allowed me to move the pieces around a little before everything bonded together.

Here is a video showing how the layers should be assembled. Do excuse the quality of the video. It’s my very first attempt at a video.

Here is the card all assembled:

Don’t you like the shake shake shake fun.




Love Shaker Cards

Today’s cards were all inspired by shaker cards. I love shaking the pretty glitter inside. With eye catching glitter,  I felt that less is more for these cards so I went with the simple look.

Here are some closeups:

This card had a more elaborate frame but the kept the viewing space within the frame clean to reduce any distractions.




ATC Inspiration

Some days I fall into a design rut and nothing seems to work. On days that I need a boost of inspiration, I try to attempt a small project to get my creative juices moving. Artist Trading Cards or ATCs have been around for a long time. I like that they are small – 3X4″, which make them less intimidating compare to a 12X12″ layout.

Here are some that I did for my RRBF assignment last month.

Here are some closeups of the ATCs:

So when you feel uninspired, trying working on something small and it might just be the start of something beautiful.




PageMaps – January

Welcome 2015! It’s a fresh new year with a new beginning. The Ruby Rock-it design team were invited as guest designers for Page Maps this lovely month of January.

 photo PageMaps3_zps7c79188c.jpgHere is my layout based on the sketch above. I used one of RRBF’s new wedding line – Get Hitched. I love the mix of gold and sliver with a dash of cream and white. It’s just so elegant.
