Keep calm and craft on

I had fun creating this set!
I used the Sewing Machine Set and Ribbon spool set for today's projects.

I used the Times Nouveau by Graphic 45.
The sewing machine template is so cool! It also has a shaped card template but I opted to do this one instead. I love how you can put some goodies inside the box, really perfect gift for a crafty friend. 


Don't forget to check out the cafe for more inspiring projects today.
Regina has a video on how the sewing machine is assembled, you can watch it HERE.

Clique Kits Pep Rally: Carpe Diem

Hi all!
Welcome to the Clique Kits Pep Rally!

If you came from Mariah, then you are on the right track!
We are sharing projects using the July kit: Carpe Diem


Now for my project, I created a card with matching envelope.

The card sentiment "for you" is my own handwriting using a black Sharpie brush pen and Sakura Micron pen. I think it added a more personal touch because of that, if I may say so.

I made an envelope with enough space to store the bulk of this card
It is thick enough and won't squish the decorated card inside. I used a template by Kelleigh Ratzlaff Designs.


That's it from me. I hope you liked what I shared with you today.
Now your next stop is, Megan Blethen's blog.
Enjoy the rest of the rally!

Here is the line up again for your reference:

I love you 365 days

This is my take on this month's Anything goes challenge at the Clique Kits blog. I used the sketch provided, rotated it and started working from there. I did a bit of mixed media on the background.



I applied Mod Podge first on the white cardstock before misting and brushing acrylic paints and distress stain on to protect it from warping and eventually tearing from being too wet. It really helps and makes a better result.

The words "I love you" were handwritten using a black Sharpie brush pen and Micron pen.

The Cutting Cafe: Christmas in July

It's Christmas in July over The Cutting Cafe. I used the Sleigh Treat Box template - Cutting File for my project. 



I also used the Mini boxes set for this project.

I underestimated the time needed to assemble the boxes lol! :D But when I got them all done, it was worth the effort after all. I love them they're so cute!!! 
And yep, I did cut them manually again. I was wondering why I can' import the SVG files in my cameo machine. I remember I still need to upgrade.. argghh... I hope, soon. I need to take note of it and inform my hubby about the upgrade :D



Paper and chipboard from Graphic 45's Twas the night before Christmas collection.

Happy birthday cupcake shaker card

Hi all! I've been keeping a little secret but I am sharing now this sweet news I received a month ago.

I tried out for The Cutting Cafe DT call and luckily got invited by Ms. Regina Easter (owner of The Cutting Cafe)!
The Cutting Cafe Designer

Now on to my first TCC project.

I used a cute Cupcake-shaped card shaker which is included in the Cupcake shaker set.


Initially, I wanted to use sequins. But I couldn't find them lol! So I opted for these microbeads I found. Guess where? In my nail polish bag lol!
I had fun making this card, which by the way, were all cut by hand. Was too lazy to open my cameo and figure out which papers to use for each piece. I badly need to use that machine more often, I swear I will everytime but I end up using scissors instead.
I used Time to celebrate papers by Graphic 45.

That is all for now, stay tuned for more projects soon.
Thanks for dropping by!
