Flea Market: Love at First Try!

I  discovered  was reminded of something today.  Aside from scrapbooking, I have another passion. Selling. No not the Big Time kind.. Just the Flea Market kind of selling...  As a kid, I would sell home cooked sweets to my classmates, ice-cold watermelon slices to our neighbours.  In college, I'd sell make-ups! I love to sell anything! haha.. I re-lived my happy-selling-days today at the Flea Market organised by PCF, where I sold all-handmade stuff. It was F U N :) 

... especially that my sister was with me :) 

 ... sales exceeded my expectations :):):) met other sellers and future students!  Thanks to Teacher Sam's students and parents from other classes for dropping by our stall :) 

 ... look who came by to show support!

That's all I can share about our event today.. Thanks to all who dropped by, said hi, bought from us. Hope to see you again in our next flea market adventure! :) 


On another note, I'd like to share a layout I made for Crate Paper's "Thankful" challenge using Story Teller. My inspiration for the all caps/bold title page is a "SHOUT OUT" because I want to shout to the world how much my little man makes me happy. He is at this stage when he talks nonstop about just anything, about his day, about previous experiences... he's got some "dramas" and he likes telling jokes too. I could go on and on!

So far, I like the simple straightforward page made possible by my eclips, 
a white cardstock, dew drops, buttons, AC flair, some stamps and CP's yummy papers :) 

Thanks so much for dropping by!

i am so excited

It's Christmas again soon!!! Have you made your cards yet? If not, you can start now or better yet, you can buy from me! LOL! More of my cards here. Thank a million for visiting :) 

Made these cuties using Simple Stories

Christmas Cards for Robin's Nest

Very very excited to receive an email confirmation for me to move on to the next round of DT search for Robin's Nest. My scrapping friends know that I adore this cute little dew drops! I use it in almost all my projects. Why not? They are so easy to use. They are perfect to give that much needed dimension to my cards, layouts and handmade embellishments! 

 Here are the 3 Christmas cards I made using these rock stars... and at the bottom, I will be sharing a little bit of step by step tutorial on how I made the first "tree" card. Read on...

... don't you love my little dew drops tree! :) 

... and how about that ornament? :)

... holidays wont be complete without Christmas balls adorned with dew drops of course!

Now, here's how to make the little tree:

 Cut the tree using a die-cut machine, a chipboard or card stock and a tree die. If you dont have a die-cut machine you can just draw a tree and cut using your mighty pair of scissors! 

Wrap the tree die cut with green and red washi tapes. 

When the tree is fully covered, add the gold Dew Drops using a liquid adhesive. I use Beacon.  

See the difference? What's a Christmas tree without the "Christmas lights"? :) 

I hope you liked my humble tutorial. Go ahead now and make your holiday cards and gifts using Robin's Nest!

Thoughtful Crafts Tuesday!

Here's two family layouts I made for a client using no particular collection. In order for the photos to stand out, I chose off-white, brown and white color palette and a little bit of pink and orange accents ... mostly from different old collections and brands. The new supplies I used are the Mr. Huey mist for that white splatters and the wood veneers. 

Also included in this week's new uploads are these final batch of iphone casings.. I altered these with washi tapes. 100% sales will be given to help a friend who fights breast cancer.

Please visit my Thoughtful Crafts page for more handmade goodies, inspirations and gift ideas. Thank you! :)

Last month...

  • was my last month at the job I enjoyed a lot but somehow I feel that God made a way for me to do the two things I love the most: motherhood and Thoughtful Crafts :) Praying that this is really what He wants for me.
  • I ate plenty and exercised less... and you know what happened next. 
  • I learned to draw shape my eyebrows. hahaha!
  • I told myself that November 2012 will be better than October 2012. 

Hurray for October! Bring it on, November! 

Can you tell?

Two of these are $2 frames from Daiso and two are $30+ ones from a local scrapbooking store. Can you tell which is which? :)
