Pull & Flip Mini Album

Hi there! Spring is here!! Oh at Doodlebug at least *lol* :) And I went to town by creating not 1 or 2 projects, but 4!! That's how awesome this collection is. 

What makes it even better is that this collection is so versatile, that you dont need to just limit yourself to making Easter themed projects. For instance, what I have made here is an envelope pull to flip mini album.

A little bit about this project:
1) Each page of the album is actually a tie string envelope. I made this using a Silhouette Cameo file
2) The album contains photos of my second bub when she was just born! :) 
3) Pull, the little pink tag at the end to see the album flip page by page on it's own. It's almost mechanical lol!

Love Layout - Doodlebug's Kraft in Color Collection

Hello! hello! Today I'd like to share with you a layout made using the Kraft in Color collection that is part of Doodlebug Designs' winter release. The layout was put together using my trusted silhouette cameo, some stitching and of course the lovely sequins by Doodlebug! The sequins are pretty awesome! each bottle contains ombre coloured sequins and they are perfect! The papers with their coordinating patterns are great to work with too! 

What I did was to cut out the bubble like pattern that's used for the background, from my cameo. Then, the circles that were left behind were flipped over to reveal the coordinating pattern of the patterned paper I used for the bubbles. I then stuck them slightly away from the empty bubble to create more layers. I hope I'm not confusing you here lol!!

The complete layout

I created little tab pages to layer the photo on

Some sequins at the corners and stitching

Prima February BAP Sketch Take

For many, many years, months..God knows..I've contemplated (umpteen times) to play along with Prima's BAP sketch. The sketches have always been very inviting..but I was either busy running behind the brats that I missed the due date or I simply forgot all about it. This time however, I decided that I will play along..and I am! lol!

Here's what I made..using Baby T's photos! yep, mummy's finally scrapping T's photos! and I hope I continue to play along at Prima's sketches..

I've used materials from the Delight and Lyric collection along with some other little embellishments / ephemeras by Pink Paislee & Kaisercraft, Chippie by Memory Maze and Spellbinders & Tim Holtz dies.

Decorated Wreath Ring Calender

Hello there Doodlebug fans! :) Today I'd like to share with you'll on how I have used my Doodlebug Designs Core Cardstocks. Many of us would usually use cardstock simply for the base of a card. While that's the main purpose of cardstock, there also various other options for putting these vibrant, pretty shades of paper to other use. What I've done here, is to make flowers!

The papers are of beautiful quality and molding it into shape was rather easy. I have also used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the flowers and assemble them. But for those of you who don't own a cameo,fret not,  there are tonnes of other things you can use to make flowers. 

To begin with, you can use punches and simply layer the flower one punched out shape over the other and stick a brad round the center. Alternatively, you may also resort to the conventional die cutting method. 

Here's a step by step tute on how I put my Calender together. If you don't intend to use this as calender, you can always use it as a deco piece by replacing the ring on the top with a die cut butterfly or any other shape that will blend with the flowers. You may also use it as a Birthday reminder.

*Note that you will need to make 3 of these to form a calender. They may vary in size, one for date, another for month and one more for year ;)


Materials Needed: Wreath Ring, Washi Tape & Handmade flowers from Core Cardstock

Step 1: Begin by covering up the polystyrene wreath with Washi Tape. This makes the ring look more presentable when viewed from other angles :)

Step 2: Using a heat gun or very strong glue, arrange and adhere your handmade flowers onto the ring. Continue to do so until the ring is almost covered

Step 4: Once the ring is covered with flowers, arrange a set of tags which have numbers to reflect as date / month / year through a ring binder ring and clasp it around the polystyrene ring. This, as mentioned earlier can also be replaced with other die cut shapes and such :)

Other Materials: Polystyrene Wreath Ring, Glue Gun, Silhouette Cut Files

This was an awesomely fun project for me to create and make a lovely gift to spruce up that dull space at home or your desk at work. Have a go, and let me know if you liked making it! :)

Piatek DT Stint Debut! A card & a tag

Hi there!! I'd like to share a card and a tag that I have made using the very beautiful Piatek  patterened papers. It gives my great honor and pleasure  to be working on such awesome creations and I look forward to a remarkable DT stint with this manufacturer :)

Without further ado, here are my projects: 

 Wish Rocking Card: This card was using two Silhouette Cameo files. I have also used a jumbo scallop die by MFT and Martha Stewart punches. The papers I have used are by Piatek, of the following lines:
Ladies Night & Good To Know

Next up, is a baby shower tag. This was made using the PTI onesie die and stcker by Doodlebug Designs Inc while the papers by Piatek are of this collection: Magic Moments and bottom portion of the onesie which usually the button is a fussy cut detail from the Good To Know collection along with the tag

This is a pic of the two projects together, hope it inspires you in some way!
