Ole Ole Bali! Mini Tag Album

My girlfriends and me had a short retreat to Bali in November, the last time we had a trip together was almost eight years ago to Bali as well. To help them keep a nice memento of this trip, I made two mini tag albums, one for each of my friends.

I made the albums using some excess Project Life 3 x 4 cards. Here are some of my favorite pages.

After that I wrapped them up in tissue and twine...

And upcycled some old paper bags as personalised gift bags.

 I enjoyed seeing the surprise on their faces when they got the little hand made gifts! *bliss*

Here's me at Bali, on an evening stroll to the gorgeous Ayana Resort!

Thanks for dropping by!

Studio Calico November Kit Cards

Hello everyone! It's December again! Oh my time flies! Here are my last projects for the month using Studio Calico's November kits: Sock Hop and Bobby Sock.

First I have a simple Thank You 6" x 6" card combining kraft and blue with a touch of soft pink, all from main kit Sock Hop. Flowers were cut using Sizzix Eclips.

 Next I have a more cheerful project; a Birthday 6" x 6" card using add-on kit Bobby Socks. The flag lines were manually cut, layered and adhered with foam dots.

Hong Kong 2012!

Hi again everyone! I'm back with another 12 x 12 layout using November's main kit Sock Hop. I used the white dotted cardstock as a base. Then I trimmed the vellum to 11 x 11 and laid it on the center of the white base. Using strips of patterned paper I created the design on the left. Then embellish away with the Basic Grey washi tape and wooden flourish! (I painted one of the woodies with red ink!) The yellow 'doily' shape was stamped with a Martha Stewart punch.

Graphic 45 Bird Song Birthday Card

I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE the Bird Song collection from G45! I loved them too much to do anything with them! I finally found good use for them on a special card for a very special aunt on her 60th birthday.

Vroom! A Layout for Scrappin Studio

Today I will share a layout I created using November's main kit; Sock Hop. This is a two-photo layout of my son playing with those cute pedal plastic cars you find at Toys'r'Us, he loves those, but then again he is obsessed with anything with wheels!

Vroom! Boy U Love Cars!

Here's a quick and easy tutorial to the layout:

  1. Firstly I determined where I wanted the patterned papers. I decided to use the 2 pieces of promotional papers that came with the kit, they were already a good size :)
  2. Next I lay over the other layers. I needed a red to make the layout pop and I sneaked in some leftover paper from September's kit hehe (the one with the box numbers).
  3. Then I removed everything and misted some red ink on the yellow base paper.
I created some embellishments using the arrow stamps. Stamp in black on the paper and fussy cut. Use foam dots to adhere it to the layout and watch it pop! Do check out the awesome Sock Hop here!

Well that's all for now and thanks for visiting!

Scrappin Studio's Project with Studio Calico's November Kit

Hello crafty people! I'm back again and I have two new projects to share. I'm thrilled with this month's kits as the colors are so fresh and bright and I just love the little clear stamps and fun brads! Can't wait to use them all! :)

On to my projects... I'm starting with Bobby Socks, November's #1 add on kit. Get the kit here :)

First is a fresh and simple birthday card, love how the patterns in the kit complement each other so well, and that red tag is just delicious :)

Fresh and cherry?
(Cardstock, stamp, seam binding and twine not from kit)
This kit came with a pack of awesome fun brads too!

For the second project, I used the remaining papers to create a shabby card. I love being able to create different themes from the same papers. Here I altered a Tim Holtz tag using the leftover papers from the card.

Love the background paper - October Afternoon's Ring Toss from the kit and Heidi Swapp Black and White Alpha (cardstock, lace, brads, pearls and fabric rose not from kit).
Sizzix roses from kit paper.
Punched doily circle of kit paper using Martha Stewart punch.
That's my first post for Studio Calico's Bobby Socks... I have more to come... now I'll be off for a mini vacation with the hubs next week so you'll only hear from me next weekend. I need to find myself some fresh new inspiration and perhaps some travel photos for a layout or mini album, stay tuned ;)

Thanks for dropping by! Have a great weekend everyone!
