Paper Issues - Old School Challenge

Hi everyone, welcome to my blog!

Each month Paper Issues has multiple challenges on their facebook group and I love their challenges!

This time I played along with a challenge called Old School. We must use vintage photo or simply print your photo in black & white.

Well, there's a first time for everything and this is the first time for me in the history of scrapbooking that I used black & white photo on my layout.

Here's my take for the challenge:

First, I cut out this beautiful Broken Hearts of Glass Background cut file from NeatNCraftyCutz using my Silhouette Cameo. Then I backed the paper with a paper from On Trend Collection by Crate Paper. Next I simply embellish the page with various embellishments from Crate Paper as well.

I super duper love the way it turned out. Safe to say that I love using black and white photo on my page from now on :)

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Enjoy The Ride

Hi everyone! Welcome to my blog.

My boy loves it when I took him to a supermarket. For him supermarket is a giant playground waiting to be explored :)

Well, he loved to sit in a supermarket trolley so his mama had to snap a photo of him. He looked so cute right!

I created a page to document this memory

I tell you, so much going on this single page. I die cut the tittle using Kaisercraft decorative die. I also die cut several cogs, stars and xoxo word. I die cut the cogs using white paper and colored them using Distress Paint by Rangers. So much fun!

I also used an old school technique, a fun technique that we scrapbooker often used it in the past when electronic cutting machine didn't exist. Can you guess what that is? Yes, it's punch! I punch the paper using Fiskars and EK Success punches. I have tons of punches in my collection and I determined to use them often whenever I make a layout.

Here are the close ups:

That's all for now. Thank you for stopping by on my blog.

Let's Get Sketchy - March 15th Sketch

Hi crafty friends, welcome to my blog!

Today I want to share the March 15th sketch by Let's Get Sketchy. I know, I know, it's a little bit late, but life has been hectic for me lately and I had no chance to post this sketch on time.

Anyway, here's the sketch created by none other Brenshevia herself. Isn't it great?

And here's my take
I used paper from Simple Stories collection. Since the pattern paper was already busy, I didn't add too many embellishments on my page. For an extra touch, I cut large flower cut file from Cocoa Vanilla Studio using my Silhouette Cameo. I adhere it on the left side of the photos to balance the look of the whole layout.
Thanks so much for stopping by and do play along with us. You have till March 31, 2018 to link up your layout to Lets Get Sketchy blog. Happy crafting!

Let's Get Sketchy - March 1st Sketch

Hi everyone, welcome to my blog!

It's March 1, 2018 and Let's Get Sketchy has another installment for this month. This time is a little bit difference because we have a moodboard to be used with the sketch.

Here are the moodboard and the great sketch by Brenshevia


I was totally in love with the color of the moodboard. When I first saw it, I knew that I had to use the paper from Good Day Sunshine lines from Simple Stories to document my vacation I had years ago in Phuket, Thailand.

Look at the color of the paper, isn't it gorgeous! It captured all the colors, the bright and shiny feel of summer outdoor shoot!
I cut three vertical strips of papers and one horizontal strip of paper to be tucked in behind my photo. I embellish the page with bunch of stickers from the collection as well and some bits and pieces from my stash.
Here are some close-ups
For the first time ever I add photo overlay over my photo. I have bunch of photo overlays from Simple Stories but I had never used any of them on my photo. Well, I was glad that I did it coz I am happy with the result!

Thanks so much for stopping by and do play along with us. You have till March 31, 2018 to link up your layout to Lets Get Sketchy blog. Happy crafting!
