Burlap Love


Hi!

It has been a while since I last played with a piece of canvas. Have always love these blank stretched canvases.
So much possibilities. Canvas and burlap are unique textures in itself. They blend beautifully when put together!

Here's a 4"x4" canvas from Canvas Corp Brands. I created this for CCB's 4"x4" challenge.





Catch y'all again soon!

Canvas Corp Valentine's Pin It and Win Challenge and More...

Hey guys,


Love is all around in February!
Here's one of my first few (well, my 2nd V-Day related card, actually). A rustic Valentine's card created using Canvas Corp Brand's supplies.
The burlap background adds a unique texture and looks completely handmade. Love that.

These days, I am simply hooked to my die cuts (I use Sizzix, PapertryInk's and SpellBinder's dies).
Simply run the dies through my Sizzix Big Shot and I get the shapes I want. Saves times and it's crisp too!
At times, I really do prefer my Sizzix over my Silhouette for intricate patterns.

Here, I die cut scallop heart-shapes on 7-Gypsies pattern papers and "packed" the vellum envelope with many Lovelies. As though it's bursting with all things sweet.



So, we've a Challenge for all of you! Want a chance to win $50 worth of Canvas Corp Brand's?
Do visit CCB's blog to see what other creative V-Day cards our designers have come up with! =) It's going to be FUN!




I know I will never be able to accomplish much if I were to attempt weekly Project Life spread. I opted for something that's sustainable and I'll progress along as and when I have a story to tell :) Here's a couple of pages from here ….



Finally…. I just got to share these…. Matt Patent Metallic A5 Organizers. (Bigger than Personal A6Size).

Pass me the Gold!

Hey all!

I thought I'll swing by with a beautiful yet simple Thrift-Like-A-Pro DIY.



I took a used food can and added Gold paint. Instant transformation. Instant Glam.
It made so much difference to a once bleh bleh can to something so stylish.
Further embellish with Webster's Pages motifs and trims - Poof! So pretty! =)

Here's 1 layout using Felicity Jane's Olivia January Kit…. Can't get over their exclusive stamps contained in their kit.



Some refills can be found right HERE at Truffula Forest! These candy colored A5 refills are super useful !

Dress Up my Desk

Hi everyone!

Valentine's Day is coming right up in a few week's and here's a Mason Tag Shaker-Envelope Combo Project created using Webster's Pages Sprinkled With Love Collection: Mason's are such a fun element to play around with!



I thought I'll take a few moments to update what's happening around here.
Organizing and making my surroundings inspiring has been a huge part of my the past few months!
The OCD in me makes it worst. I need to know where my stuff are, where it's been placed.

Right now, I'm glad to have my desk dressed up in a way where I can reach for what I need AND yet look presentable.

So, every other week, the items on my desk play musical-chairs and get switched around.
I thought I'll show you what's on my desk that is inspiring me this week!

My trusted MINT organizer case and my Lilac A5 sized organizer. Essentials! There're some more ready stock available, if you're interested!
Check it out Here and Here….
We've brought them in so many times, it's so popular!




and here's my view the past few days! Pretty Fuchsia and Gold combination makes it so appealing.


till then…. xo,
Em

Layouts

Hi all,

Hope you had a good start to your New Year.
I'm SO Glad 2015 is here and embraced it with wide open arms!

Here's a layout created using Webster's Pages. Can't wait for you to see what they have in store for next week's big trade show!




here's another layout… using Felicity Jane's November kit. I'm a sucker for stamps and their kits has new stamps included in their monthly kit. SCORE!




hmm… incidentally both layouts have tinges of yellow on it. Love me some Yellow!

The Mint case stores all my crafty tools and supplies and in case you are wondering, you can find one HERE. I'll show you what's in it … perhaps in the next post.

xo,
Em.

Greetings !

Hi there!

Wishing everyone a warm and cozy holiday season!
Just a few more days before the year ends and i cannot help but recount of the many experiences learned over the past year.



I think this year's BAD out weights the GOOD.
The extremely unwelcome close encounter with the most hated illness which came knocking on our door middle of this year caught us off guard. Threw us off tangent and made us grapple in the dark for footing.

All in, thankful for the Almighty who brought us out of it.
Pass me not my gentle Saviour, Hear my humble cry.
Indeed, He has heard our cries…

Here're a couple of projects created the past week.
Handmade Christmas exchange for a group of lovely ladies.
I REALLY Do love creating simple handmade! So much to love.


Here's a peek into my December Daily using Felicity Jane's December Kit.
Check out their exclusive stamp sets! Very user friendly both for my layouts and planning purposes!



Hope you'll enjoy the remaining 2014.
xo,

Em
