The Love Mini Album

This post was meant for Valentine's Day last week but unfortunately work kept away from my PC so this is slightly delayed. I hope some of you are still in the mood for romance! Anyhow, hubby and I had a late V Day dinner after a long day at work, it was nice getting to be with each other regardless the hour :)

I originally made this album for a Scrap N Crop class based on the kit that Val gave me. The class was last Sunday and it was actually pretty good, we had 8 registrations but only 5 came, which was great nevertheless, we had lotsa space and lotsa fun too. And to those who came, I want to express my heartfelt appreciation for taking time off to come all the way to Kajang :)

Here are some of the images of the FRONT and OUTSIDE of the mini album:


Here are the inside pages:


Here are close-ups of my favorite bits:


This was part of the class synopsis which was on Scrap N Crop's CROP.munity's blogpost:

The Love Album is a shabby chic mini album  measuring 8” x 6”, made entirely from scratch using chipboard covers and cardstock pages. This projects features the latest Valentine's collection from Making Memories and other delicious designer pattern papers and pretty embellishment.

Cards for Guys

Hi again! My first week of work went by pretty well, it's hectic yet exciting, I'm quite exhilarated to be back in action I'm a total hopping bunny buzzing with enthusiasm! Let's hope and pray it stays that way a looooong way to go heheh!

I had an awesome class at Scrap N Crop's CropArty yesterday, we had five wonderful 'students' who did so great despite the quick pace, it was just chatting, laughing, cutting, pasting and more chatting :) And then there was lotsa shopping of course! Big thanks to Val of Scrap N Crop for the opportunity to be a guest teacher at her Scrap Abode and also for having me as the featured artists for Feb/March 2012!!! *yay* I'm just so honored and thrilled!

Well, today I'd like to share some 'masculine' cards made for guys, these cards were actually commissioned jobs from my friends cum valued customers *you girls are awesome* << hugs >>

I always find it quite challenging to make cards for guys as I have to go easy on the flowers and butterflies which I LOVE! I'll still sneak in a couple of them sparingly while making sure the overall design and color tone is not overly 'girly'. These cards were made using mainly MME's Lost & Found 2 6x6 pad (Breeze) as well as some of the 12 x 12 from the same collection, among other matching papers and whatnots from my stash.

Here's a rustic themed card using browns, green and pale yellow:

Minimal use of blooms & butterflies but I can't stay away completely!

This is a blue & green theme card:

Velvet & grossgrain ribbon in the centre.

The last guy card on my list is extra special as my friend requested it for her hubby and she wanted their photo inside the card plus personalized printed message.

Personalized 5.5" x 8" large card
Handmade satin bloom topped with a Prima rose.
Just love this loving pic of the couple!
That's all for now! Thanks for dropping by :) I have a huge Valentine project to share which will be posted in conjunction with Valentine's Day, hehehe so do stay tuned! Meantime, happy scrapping folks!
