BPC Process Class challenge - Slides

I swear I haven been up to date in sharing my layouts with you all. Sometimes maybe we procrastinate so much. Especially so when the item hits #1 in your to-do list, you will dread to do it. I use Evernote to organise all my to-dos, but I usually don't finish them in the order of importance, usually it ends up as doing them in the order that I feel is convenient , or those that I want to do get done first. Sometimes, it gets funnier. I have a to-do list, but I do other things , and when it get done, I type them into the to do list just so that I can check them off happily. Does it happen to you? Do share :)

Anyhow, here is another layout I meant to share with you guys for quite sometime. It was done during the period of them when I scrap a bunch of mixed media style pages, just because I have my mediums out and convenient to reach for :)

This layout is an assignment for the class Process by Big Picture Classes with Catherine Davis. Catherine is such a wonderful designer, love her style that is always so timeless and artistic. This challenge is to use slider frame. Catherine has hers cut out using Silhouette machine. I have meant to do this layout for a long time too , but I was lazy to pull out my silhouette. A few months later, I bought a boardgame that has sheets of punched out chipboard cubes. After punching out all of those game pieces, I realise the remaining can be used on a scrapbook page or some alter art. Hence I saved them in my scrap room. A few months later, I revisited the classroom and the idea struck me, that I can use this chipboard negative to create layout for this challenge :)

I gesso over the entire chipboard so it becomes smooth and sturdier and opaque white. 
I limit the layout to just 3 colors, white black and gold. It's simple and I love how it turns out!

Thanks for stopping by. I'm looking into creating an editorial calender so that I become more consistent with my posting :) Well, and we all know that this "to-do-task" cannot be #1 on my to-do list or it will never get done! Haha! 

Till next time :) Ciao!

Handmade Album (paperbag)

Hello all. I definitely have been neglecting my blog. When school and all kicks in, I'm busy busy busy. Not to mention the Wisdom tooth which decides to swell up and cause chewing a pain. OUCH.

Ok, let's talk about scrappy things instead that makes us happy shall we?

Here I have with me, 2 more handmade album to share.

This is a album is made out of paperbags. There are 4 paper bags in all, creating 4 large pockets and 8 sides pages. Each of the large pocket holds 2 tags. In addition to the large pockets, there are also several smaller pockets where you can slot in ephemeras as well. There is a ribbon closure on the cover to secure all your photos and anything that you had stuff inside :) This album is approximately 4 inches by 5 inches

Starbust layout + GIveaway!

Hello all. As the Super Stashbuster is about to start, I recall I had one more layout from the stash buster anonymous that I have yet to share. If you notice the layout on my Facebook page cover, here is the full layout reveal :)

I used mainly 6x6 papers from giltz design and My Mind Eye. And cut them into triangles using the template Aly has provided us . Then I stitch in the middle using a handy dandy hand held sewing machine/device . the same as the one I used in this layout
 
Extra photos that are not of the same color scheme are tucked behind the layers of papers. I didnt glue the entire paper down so that I have room to tuck things in as and when I like. i also love to tuck in extra journaling in the future :) You can also try this to get different perspective from other people who attended the event you scrapbook about on your page :)

Handmade Album (Letters)

Hello all. How have your weekend been? In Singapore, we have a long weekend and we have a Great Singapore Sales going on ! Everywhere is so crowded! But anyhow, I finally get my albums photographed and process and I will be sharing 3 more albums with you! 

This album is initially designed in the idea of keeping track of letters that I received from my friends and loved ones. So they are of the length of letters and half the width of an envelop .
They are ring bounded
There are a total of 4 pages, each page is double sided, and both sides of the page allows you to slot in a letter or two. In between each page has a top loading section , where I had placed 2 square tags in them. The tags are pull outs, and you can add any comments or replies you have to your friends. You can also add photographs you and your friends have taken :)



Each side of the page has a flap and the opening is secured by a twine that is tied around a cute heart brad. 


If you are interested in getting this album, please contact me at greentea_world_56@hotmail.com

Thanks for stopping by! It's a school/work day again tomorrow ! All the best to everyone and Carpe Diem!

Blog currently under maintenance

Hello people, bad news. Well, just yesterday I realise my Photobucket account albums are getting a little messy, hence I decide to change the name and location of some of the albums. And guess what , I didn't read the little warning sign down below , which says something like "renaming and changing the location of the album will break links" Hence this is a big project for me, to go through my entire blog and relink all the images ! I hope I can get it done by the weekend. And meanwhile, thank you very much for your patience!
