Free for all project for Pebbles

"My favourite Pebbles collection to scrap my teenage girl has got to be Hip Hip Hooray.   I had fun mixing it up with some Country Picnic and With Love for this layout.  I love the cheerful, fun and bright colors and patterns together which help to capture my girl's personality.  I also tried using the twist tie embellishments in a different way here - ruffling it up to add some dimension."

Pebbles' Inc Whip It up Project

Here's a project that I whipped up under 30 mins for the Pebble's blog feature last week - 

"Birthday cards are always in demand in my household. The Hip Hip Hooray line is definitely perfect for whipping up quick birthday cards for teenage gals and guys in my kids' lives. I used the same card design here to create both a feminine and a masculine square 6x6 card to save on time, switching out different embellishments to add to the boy or girl theme.  I also tried making my own medallions using the Banner kit for the ribbon tails and dimensional flowers or embossed stickers for the medallion."

Pebbles Inc : Free for all project - bon bon treat boxes

"For this week's Free For All project , I decided to create some cute bon bon treat boxes to put in some Hershey's kisses and give them away when I visit someone . I so love Pebbles cardstock quality patterned papers which offer wide possibilities in our papercrafting. Simply cutting a piece of 12x12 patterned paper to the right size (10"x8") and using a scoring board to put the score lines in the right places, a little bit of cutting away of the appropriate parts of the paper and I have these treat boxes ready to decorate and go."

My Little Shoebox - Altered Canvas project - Aiko collection

The new MLSB Aiko collection inspired me to create this adorable reversed canvas shadowbox .
I cut up the circular diecut and decided to score it up for a medallion type effect and used it to mat my photo. 

Using the cardstock stickers and diecuts from the Aiko line all around the sides of the canvas helped me quickly finish this project.;)

Mix & Match Pebbles Inc project

Happy 29th Feb 2012 ! Happy Leap Year Day !

Happy 29th Feb , blogging friends ! 
Just had to celebrate this leap year moment for a change . 
I trust your February has turned out good in everywhere , 
as it totally has for me . 
A gorgeous day here , weather wise in Sunny Singapore - 
And wishing you sunshine too - wherever you go ! ;) 

Over the weekend I received a request to create a unique, handmade birthday greeting 
for a 30 something , chic & successful young man . 
So paying a crafty visit to my generous pal , Flora Tan
is always timely and the project worked out as a Zutter mini album - using 4 sheets of cardstock - which yielded 12 pages .

Wanting to keep things simple , being a masculine project-
my main supplies were a sheet of Kaisercraft rub on quotes on Life ,
glimmer mists , tissue tape by Tim Holtz and AC Amy Tangerine's line, some dimensional embellies by AC and buttons. 

Loved how easy this project turned out in the end and I think I would like to invest in Zutter next for a gamechange in my crafting ways ! ;)

Back with some Valentine's Day cards to share

So the first die I just had to try out is our Layered, Sweetheart Flowers die .

MLSB Enchanted Garden layouts

Lest I forget that I know how to create layouts - 
2 garden inspired layouts to share today ,
using the My Little Shoebox Enchanted Garden line. 

It was definitely a lot about banners and rolled up flowers last year . 
I spy the Chevron trend may not let up just yet 
( although I haven't tried that one yet- perhaps I will venture with a black & white Chevron french manicure - but not in my papercrafting yet ) . 
Otherwise I'm not sure if there's a particularly new trend yet for 2012.
Seems to be a continuation of the past trends still to me .
