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.

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.

 photo Hello_SB_27Jan15_zpskzcy9ffk.jpgUsing the white background as the base, the photos and pattern papers just draw the eye right into the middle of the layout.

Simple journaling done with a typewriter.

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

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

Steps:

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.

Hello

Just a few more days of November and we would have arrived at the very last month of the year ! It has been a whirlwind year and I’m trying to enjoy it as much as I can before the new year arrives. Here is a page I did a few weeks ago and forgot all about it.
