Let's Get Sketchy - August Week 5

Hi everyone! There's something unique about the current challenge at Let's Get Sketchy. This time they use a magazine ad as the inspiration instead of sketch.

Here's the inspiration:

I really love the color combo of the ad, so bright, fun and funky.

Here's my take:

The photo is a little bit fade since I took the photo in the middle of the night with poor lighting. The actual color is brighter than shown in the photo, the orange color is more vibrant and the green is even brighter. I'll replace the photo late if I have a better picture.

I chose the color that match with the color of the ad. I distress the edge of my paper to add the funky touch to my layout. The tittle were die cut using Kaisercraft decorative dies and Heidi Swapp. As usual, I mixed bits and pieces from different collections.

I am super happy with result and hope that you like it too :)

Thank you for stopping by!

Let's Get Sketchy - August Week 4

Hi everyone! Finally got a chance to play with another sketch from Let's Get Sketchy, August Week 4 that is.

Here is the sketch:

And here's my take :

When I see the sketch, I know that I'll be using the butterfly paper from Studio Calico that I've been hoarding for ages :)

I die cut the tittle using Kelly Purkey-Simon Says Stamp dies and heart border with Kaisercraft decorative dies. Bits and pieces are mixed from different collections.

I really liked the way it turned out. So perfect!

Let's Get Sketchy - July Week 4

Hi everyone! It's been a long time since my last post. I've been very busy lately and I kinda missed crafting and making pretty stuffs.

Luckily, I got a chance to play with Let's Get Sketchy July Week 4.

Here is the sketch :

And here is my take on the sketch :

For me, the sketch is so versatile and open for many ways of interpretation. I layered the background using dark wood grain paper to make the color pop. I cut the wood grain paper in the middle and use the B side as a base to my photo. You won't see the hole on the paper as I carefully placed everything to cover it.

Well, thank you for stopping by! I hope you had a great weekend.

Family Layouts

Hi everyone! I would like to share layouts I made using Family Ties collection from Pebbles Inc.

I took lots of photos during my birthday last March and they are in perfect match with the Family Ties collection.

Here is the first layout:

That's me, my mom and my grandma in the photo.

Second layout:

Now that's make four generations in the photo with my children on it.

I am so grateful and blessed beyound measures :)

Let's Get Sketchy - July Week 2

Hi everyone! Today I want to share a layout I made based on a sketch from Let's Get Sketchy.

Let's Get Sketchy always came up with a great sketch. I particularly love that the sketch has a doily on it. I love doily, I often use it on my layout.

Here is the layout I made:

I used papers mostly from Webster's Pages. Bits and pieces used are from different collections from different company, Crate Paper, October Afternoon, Simple Stories, Studio Calico, you name it :)

I die cut the tittle using decorative dies from Kaisercraft. Trust me, Kaisercraft has lots of beautiful word decorative dies you don't want to miss. I think I bought almost every dies they have ;-)

Thank you for stopping by.

I Love You More Everyday Layout

Hi all! Today, I want to share a layout I made using silhouette cameo. There are tons of beautiful layouts out there shared by other scrapbooker, and boy they all look gorgeous!

I am not master in using a die cut machine, not at all. I am still a beginner for sure :)
But I am eager to learn more so I could make a good use of my machine.

Well, for this particular layout, I used NDS 2016 Free Cut File shared by The Cut Shoppe.

Those cut files are gorgeous. I modified the Love is Everything cut file into one big background.

Here is the layout I made:

Thank you for stopping by!

My Birthday Layout

Like many of you, I made tons of birthday layouts of my kid. But, I have to confess, I never scrapbook my very own birthday photos. I don't know why, maybe I felt that no need to scrapbook it at this very age :D

Well, that is about to change. I finally made a layout to document my birthday last March.

Here is the page:

I used Confetti collection from Crate Paper, which is totally gorgeous, that I've been hoarding. Simply add bits and pieces from the collection and voila the layout is done.

Thanks for stopping by!

Projects for Made With Love Indonesia Challenge

In order to celebrate 2016 National Scrapbooking Day, a local scrapbook store named Made With Love Indonesia hosted a challenge called One Week One Project during May 2016.

Of course I took part in the challenge. For Week One, the challenge was Scrapbook Layout, and Week Two was Handmade Card.

For Week One, I submitted not only one but five layouts. For Week Two, I made three cards. I guess I really didn't want to miss the opportunity of showcasing my projects.

I didn't win though, but it's ok. Practise makes perfect :)

Without further ado, here are the scrapbook layouts I made for the challenge:

As for Week 2 Challenge, here are the cards I made:

That's all from me today. Thanks for stopping by!

Finally, a Blog

Well, after long consideration, today I decided to make a blog so I could share my passion in scrapbooking.

I've been doing scrapbook since 2012 and have created hundreds of layouts ever since. I really enjoy the process of making a scrapbook layout. From choosing the paper till finding the right embellishments to make it even better. Sometimes I also make a card but not often since I found that scrapbooking is my truly passion.

I will share my scrapbook layouts soon. So stay tuned for more updates.. :)
