Big Elena dolls and friends

Hi all! Want to share with you all a very cute cutting file from The Cutting Cafe...

Big Girls set - Meet Elena Jean, Rose B. and McKenzie
I used Elena Jean and colored her with a mix of watercolors and colored pencils


I printed on a watercolor paper. I lowered the opacity of the image so when printed it will be really faint. I should have left the face so it's not too faint :D Seems like she has no nose here lol!


The sentiments were all my own handwriting. I used Sakura Gel pen for the words "thank you" and a Micron for the smaller ones.

Check out more samples from the design team using these cutie pies!
Have a nice day, thanks for dropping by!

Clique Kits August Pep Rally


Hello everyone! Welcome to the CK August Pep Rally!

You'll be seeing lots of projects created with the pretty Ambrosia kit featuring Citrus Bliss collection by Pink Paislee


Here is the page I made for this blog hop


I used watercolors, acrylic glaze and gold paint marker to draw the heart in the middle of the paper, which is actually from two different patterned papers. 

I've fussy cut this beautiful quote from one of the journaling cards included in the kit. I love the contrast of the black/white on the pastel. summery colors of the papers and embellishments.

Of course, let's not forget some flowers. lol! :D I made three rolled paper flowers.. they're so cute, if I may say so... :P


This part was an afterthought. I wanted to include this ephemera and didn't know how I'd adhere w/o the tape/glue being seen. So, I just used my trusted stapler to secure it in place. 


I hope you liked my page!
Now onto your next stop

The Cutting Cafe: Post-it note box and cover

Hello friends!
Weekend is finally here, yey! If you don't know yet, Fridays and Saturdays are weekends here in Saudi Arabia. I think in other middle eastern and around the gulf peninsula as well.

Anyways, I want to share with you my project for The Cutting Cafe's August 7 product: Post it note box and cover.

Here is my take on it, using papers from Graphic 45's Communique deluxe collection.


I distressed the white cardstock and adhere it on a piece of paper to make it stand out a bit


Do check the The Cutting Cafe blog a bit later for more project ideas from the design team!

Pretty Paper Studio: Treasure Valley

Oh my, I couldn't believe it's already August! Just a few a couple of months more and my darling daughter is gonna be turning 1! ONE! Time is so flying by so fast, it's kind of scary, really. Sometimes I want to stop it and let her stay a baby lol! But of course, I know she'll need to grow... and I hope and pray she grows up a kind, loving, God-fearing and all goodness kind of person. Sigh...

I hope she never forgets her mommy loves her so much. That she is mommy's world, everything.

Anyways, here is my page for this month's August challenge over the Pretty Paper Studio blog. The theme for this month is COLORING. Just use any type/kind of coloring medium you like. Pens, pencils, watercolors, markers, etc. Do check out the blog for more information about my layout and the challenge itself.

Happy crafting,

Iralamija: Shabby chic birthday card

I have another shabby chic card to share using Iralamija's beautiful collages with a short tutorial how it was created.

Print and your paper and other elements for the collage. I used Sweet home and Pink and sweet papers

Cut 5x10 (inches) base of the card. Fold in the middle. Adhere a doily in the middle and cut the edges. Then cut and adhere the patterned paper as seen in the image. I used a sheer ribbon, a couple of pins and a button at the top. Secure the middle part of the bow with a tape or glue.

Adhere the rest of the cut elements from the collage

Add a strip of lace
Finally, adhere the two smaller butterflies and embellish with rhinestones
This is the final card

Shabby chic cards

It's long overdue but I just want to share the news about being invited to be one of Iralamija's design team! I gladly accepted and so thrilled to be creating with her beautiful collages.


You can find her Etsy shop here.


I created a couple of cards for starters,


I just love how both cards turned out! 



I used these collages for both cards.
