Parents Appreciation Week

Over the Raya holidays, I dug up some old photos of my mom-in-law and my parents to use on the chipboards I bought. They were both really simple LOs because I wanted to do finish it quickly.

For my mom in-law's LO, I painted the chipboard with Jo Sonja's Cashmere background colour, then used crackle medium on it, then splatter Jo Sonja's Yellow Oxide acryllic gouache, then another coat of Cashmere. However, the cracks didn't appear as distinct as I wanted them to be, oh well... LOL.

For my parent's LO, I just used Pink Paislee's Moon Glade paper on the chipboard. I printed out the captoion, used some bling, and embossed the flower chipboard, and VOILA! Lazy person's scrapping work.

Nice swirls with bling, eh?

Rachel's Child's Play kit designs

Have been away for some time. Before I give anyone the idea that we have disappeared, it's because I've been down sick for almost a week, and over the weekend was at Subang Parade's craft market. More on the craft market in another post.

Anyway, enough about myself. I have procrastinated for far too long, now. I have here Rachel's design work for the Child's Play kit. 2 LOs and a card. Super! Here are the pcitures. I just love her style.

Aren't both the kids really cute?

The Little Miss looks georgous on her bike here in this earthy tones layout.

Apart from the kit, Rachel also used the following items:
Bazzil & Jennifer Birch cardstock
Foam Tape
Ranger Ink
Fiskars Threading Water Punch

Beginner's Children Class

Last Saturday, we conducted a small class for children at ALIMkids Bookshop in Subang. A small class of 5, but we had fun nonetheless making a mini "I am Thankful" book. The kids were very creative and we just need to be on hand to teach them some techniques and they were off by themselves, decorating, writing, etc. It's amazing to see how much creativity children posses but are very often not fulfilled. Here are some pictures of the day.

All hard at work on their mini album
Completed projects, Yahoo!

The class of 5.

We will organise more classes after Ramadhan. Please email us at: for more information.
