Precious Memories

I'm really excited to share with you today the page I created with Precious Memories, a new collection by Graphic 45.

(insert collection image here if possible)

Here is my page... and my beautiful baby daughter...
You know how much I love layering and fussy cutting! I distressed around the photo which I have stacked 3x and mounted on a thick cardboard for dimension.

I just love love these Petaloo flowers!

Found this butterfly chipboard from my stash. I think it's Pink Paislee? not 100% sure about that though. It's also mounted on a thick cardboard. I love dimension, texture and layering! Lol! :D

You can check out the list of supplies on the Graphic 45 blog.
Thank you for dropping by today, stay tuned for more projects soon!

An ABC Primer card

Hi all!
How are you all doin? Can't believe January is almost over.. time flies so fast and so I really really enjoy each moment spent with my little girl. And time is really gold these days for me lol! :D

I scrap whenever I have free time, and that window of opportunity always come at night time or when she takes a nap and allowed me to take her down to bed. She wants to be carried ALL.THE.TIME. bleh... my bad, yeah I know.. don't judge, please. lol! :D No matter how many times I turn everything together in my head how it came to this extent, I really have no idea. Ha! So what I just think is this too shall pass.. lol! :D I just enjoy every single moment with her coz as I said, time flies so fast. 


Anyways, here is a card I created for Graphic 45's latest re-release, "AN ABC PRIMER" collection.
I LOVE everything in this collection. It's a must have!


I used a beautiful Petaloo flower, some ribbons, twine and a G45 metal key to complete the look of my card. I distressed the edges of the patterned papers I used here and mounted on 3D foam tape.
Hope you liked it and do stop by soon, more projects to come!

New Year, Fresh start

Hi folks! Happy New Year!

Do you have some resolutions this year? I do. And this one I am sharing today is all about my "Crafty" resolutions.

I started this last year, if you will remember I created this mini-album using recycled cardboards for base. This year, I am doing it again, simpler version though.

I listed 5 things craft-related I want to accomplish this year. Stuff that I can attain and not too hard to accomplish. 
I used the same concept (design) on each page so it was really a no-brainer. The difficult thing was to think of the crafty resolutions lol! :D

 I tied the look by using this black & white polka dot washi tape. I love how it made the colors pop!



For the complete list of supplies used, check out my post on the PPS blog.

Graphic 45: 'Twas the night before Christmas card

Oh my God... It's just FIVE.. yes 5 days before Christmas!!! Eeeekkk!!!
After all these years.. I still miss celebrating this festive season in my home country.
As you all know, there's no Christmas celebration in Saudi Arabia. Being here as a foreigner, I believe that you have to respect their culture and traditions. And celebrating the season isn't one of them... so I just content myself with looking at photos on Facebook and exchanging greetings with family and relatives back home through pms and phone calls.

Anyways, for today.. I wanna share with you a card using 'Twas the night before Christmas.
I love this card... love how it turned out.

   lots of layers and distressing here...

Graphic 45: 'Twas the night before Christmas mini-album

Hiya there folks! Can't believe it's just a few days before Christmas.. time flies so fast!
Today, my 'Twas the night before Christmas mini-album is posted on the Graphic45 blog.
As always, I had fun creating this project.
It's quite small but full of little surprises inside! 
I've been loving incorporating little pockets and tags in my mini-albums lately.. more space for journaling and photos...
I liked how you can mix and match the papers in this Graphic45 collection.
I distressed the edges a bit with Brushed Corduroy distress ink.
If you're a fussy cutter like me, this collection is heaven!

Such a festive and beautiful collection from Graphic 45, isn't it?


You can check out the complete list of supply in the Graphic 45 blog.
Hope you like today's post. Thanks for dropping by!

Graphic 45: Set of cards with matching bag

Just wanna share a Graphic 45 project I made, a set of 10 cards with a matching pretty bag.

I used the Time to celebrate collection which is perfect for every occasion. 
I love how the rich brown color of the Core'dinations cardstock I used made the colors pop and how the embossing added that beautiful texture. I made a basic tutorial on how to create the bag and you can find it here in my Snapguide tutorial: How to create a set of cards with matching bag.

How the bag looks like opened...
And here are the cards...

Pinterest-inspired layout

Hi folks! Sharing with you today a layout I created for Graphic 45 using "Come away with me" collection.

We're to get inspiration from Pinterest and got inspired by this card with banners..
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/72902087693087950/

My layout is all about my dream travel destinations.... that I hope one day I'd be able to travel to with my hubby.

I created a pocket where I stored the photos of the places I dream of exploring someday...
I used my fave Sizzix tattered floral die to create the flowers. This is actually the FIRST project I used this die with.
 Inside the mini pocket album...
 Dream travel destinations!

Check out the complete list of supplies I used to create this layout in the Graphic 45 blog.
Thanks for checking me out!

Love potion bottle

Hello all!
I have another project to share this week with you. It's my first time to alter a bottle and it was fun!

I used Graphic 45 Steampunk Spells collection which is a first time for me. I love the colors and the fun design in this collection. Perfect for Halloween and other steampunk projects.

I just clustered several fussy cut designs from different papers in the collection. I used a flat stick to adhere a piece of paper where all the fussy cut designs were adhered to. Then I used some trims to accentuate the center as well as layers of the paper flowers also from the same collection.

I asked hubby to spray paint the bottle since I cannot do that on my own (pregnant, remember hehe).
I loved how it turned out! I just wish I have a better adhesive because I find it difficult to adhere the labels etc to the bottle. I used glue gun and I hope it will stay (fingers crossed).

You can check out the whole list of supplies used in the Graphic 45 blog.

Thanks for checking it out!
