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.

Here is a layout I made with my own handmade paper dollies:

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



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.

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.

 photo PinWheel2_7Mar14_zpsd5e81efb.jpgI love how you can give a simple pinwheel a more adult feel just by cutting a fancy edge instead of the usual straight lines.

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.

August Recap – RRBF

Hello September and good bye to the month of August. I had a blast with my Ruby Rock-it projects last month and thought I would summarize all of them in one post.

** click on each title to read the details post **

1. Paper Envelopes
I love the new Celebrate line. Elegant yet understated. TheĀ contrasting damask pattern compared the the lines of the other side of the paper gives the envelopes a nice surprise when it’s opened.

2. Tiny Birdhouse

I was inspired to create a little birdhouse after looking at various mantelpiece displays on the internet. I love the pastel colors of the line and the rest just fell into place.

July Recap – RRBF

Today I thought I’ll summarize the projects that I did for RRBF last month.

Here is a summary of my projects.
1. Project Life Cards

There are times when I prefer making my own so that the cards match the theme and color scheme that I need perfectly. Here is a set I made with the theme “Love” in mind – See more at:

2. I love my family Layout

Fancy cutting the image from the pattern paper and layering it over a contrasting background paper really makes the whole layout pop.

That’s all for today. More details of the projects can be found over at the Ruby Rock-it blog.

Enjoy your day..
