It's been gloomy today... Great day for crafting... I was inspired by Laura's Sketch over @ 2S4Y blog. I used some of the stuff that i've just received in the mail yesterday from ebay... There are sure some great scrapbook deals. I've bought 8 packs of assorted felt by Queen&co. and crocheted flowers... my favorite was the crochet flowers... I want to learn japanese crochet! just cause they're designs are very cute...

Anyways... Here's my card for the day!

Requested by Raquites... Taking the pictures sure take a lot of time... But I like Visual Instructions better. I've made some changes to the template to make it easier. Added a sleeve template and sentiment that I used in the card.

When selecting which p.paper to use on this project. I would recommend a thicker double sided P.paper just to give a little more sturdiness. Enjoy!

P.Paper: Scenic Route
pen: staedler
eyelet & brad: Making Memories

Lace ribbon: Daiso

*NEW* Template:

1. Cut out and outline/distress all the pieces.

2. Glue together the mug cover.

3. Adhere just the edges using a double sided tape.

4. Adhere the mug cover with an eyelet.

5. Adhere the Sleeve. (Front and back)

6. Tie ribbon around the sleeve.

7. adhere brad on the sides and pop-dots behind.

8. Adhere to card.

I was inspired by CPS blog on creating shaped cards...
Love how my coffee mugs turned out! Perfect for placing starbucks gift cards for your loved ones. For the cup shape, I used a image of a mug and traced it in illustrator. But, if you're not good with the program, you can just print out an image and trace it out...
Oh.. and I don't have a starbucks gift card so i put sth else instead... haha..

A Notebook and card set (CPS#75), it'll make a nice gift for mothers...
Found a recycled book over at Daiso, Richmond BC @ Aberdeen Center. It's kind of like the dollar store, their stuff are all from Japan, $2. You can find just about anything.. Quality is so much better, you'll be amazed at what they have there... household items, stationery, crafting supplies, gardening decor, Children's toys.

For those people who live in Vancouver, BC. Go Check IT OUT!!

Well Hello everyone! I know I've dissapeared for quite a while.. pretty busy i guess..

The long awaited gingerbread house. I was just preparing for xmas.. I know summer's just begin but I wanted to finish this up and hopefully sell them. The house shape was traced from clear scraps acrylic house album and I cut them out from chipboard.

At first I doubt myself that it'll look nice... But now with the finished piece, I LOVED it! I drew and handcut most of the embellishments like the chocolate chip door and window; snow; christmas tree and ofcourse the gingerbread man! he's a cutie..

So here's the gingerbread house... Taa daa!

Ohhhhhh... I can hardly wait till the end of the month... Coz I'm gonna be MOVINGGGG!!! The new place just blows me away.... SO MUCH better than my place right now... Let me tell you the diff...

My current place:
It's a 3 bedroom + 1 Bathroom.
It's split into 2 floors so the Kitchen and my Housemates room are on the 1st floor.. and the other 2 bedroom and bath is on the 2nd..
So it's such a pain for me to go downstairs just to get a glass of water(especially at night). Same thing for my roomies... they have to climb the stairs to go to the bathroom..
We have no Insuite laudry, and have to go to the laundromat once every week..
The kitchen has a corner sink which is giving my back a hard time.
My cabinet door does not close.. Now don't ask me why i moved to this place...
It's a longgg storyyy...

But anyways..
My NEW place is gonna have a big kitchen, dishwasher, washer and dryer and 2 bathrooms!!! Plus++++ Everything is brand newww!! the place is so much brighter and less depressing..
I'm going to decorate my room... I bought 4 sheets of 12x12 paper(orange and green) and i'm going to stick them to a canvas board and hang them in my room.. I'll post it up once i've made themm...


So here's my cards for today...

Another "owl card" I love this stamp...
