Punchboards and things

Nette of My Little Attic hosted a giveaway last August to celebrate her birth month. She had all sorts of stamping goodies on sale at her shop.  Each purchase entitled you to a raffle ticket. I bought all the stamps I’ve been wanting and crossed my fingers. Guess what? I won. I have never won…

Happy 4th Anniversary, Mama Elephant!

It’s World Cardmaking Day and I don’t have much time to work on a card. But I managed to make this: My friend’s pooch turned 5 today and we were invited to a Puppy Party, so I just had to make a gift box and a tag to go with it. I grabbed my 1-2-3…

Hustle and Heart

Good day, lovelies! Scrappy life update:  Yup!  Still 100% obsessed with my Altenew Vintage Roses set! I was organising a few family photos last month and came across these long-forgotten graduation photos (circa 2004), and felt the rush to immortalise this moment in a layout. I was a bit of a nerd back in college…

Happy Mail: Altenew’s Vintage Roses Stamp and Die 

I made a card for a friend who was celebrating a recent family milestone. Because I am that friend who takes forever to text back but remembers birthdays, anniversaries, and special occasions, I make up for my lack of enthusiasm for social media, with an even slower means of communication–snail mail. Who doesn’t love snail…

Scrap Your Stash Tip:  White cardstock leftovers

Every cardmaker has a white cardstock stash. Sometimes, we cut way more white paper than we actually need and we are left with scrap pieces. Crafting need not be wasteful.  Save those and use them for your tiny die-cuts like the cute Lawn Fawn coffee cups that you see on the left. You can also…

Oh Happy Day! 

I am obsessing over Altenew stamps lately.  Their stamps are all so cleverly designed, I have been creating non-stop with them. This is a layout I made recently using Altenew’s Beautiful Day stamp set.  The set is for color-layering featuring 4 stamp layers to create the gorgeous flowers that you see here.  It also has berries…

Project Life Modern Edition Core Kit

I have a serious scrappy problem.  No amount of KonMari-ing will fix this.  It’s a mental thing.  It’s just plain OCD. Hi!  I am Angela, and I am Project Life Core Kit-obsessed. I have a ton of Project Life cards waiting to be used. I got the Southern Weddings edition waiting for my wedding photos….

Project Life Catch Up

I am 6 months behind my Project Life and I’m slowly trying to update my album every week so I don’t have to stress myself out by the end of the year.  Here’s a quick layout I made last night featuring my dogs Denzel and Frankie. Denzel is our Chow Chow.  He is 2 years…

Scrap Your Stash Tip: Punches

I do not consider myself a hoarder.  I tend to go through my stash fairly easy. Though I must admit that there are days where I feel like I need to convince myself to let go of a pretty sticker sheet or two. Just recently I found myself accumulating quite a huge pile of paper…

Scrap Your Stash

I have been in the business of scrapbooks for the past 4 years.  And one thing I learned as a hobbyist is that it’s so easy to buy all the pretty papers, stickers, ephemera, and what nots. If you are just like me, then you would understand why we scrapbookers tend to hoard all the pretty…

2016 Crafty Goals

I know I should have posted this at the start of the year, just when every one has the time to rethink their strategies for tackling their crafty projects.  I have been doing a bit of reorganising in my craft area and was prompted by nostalgia for my early days as a scrapbooker.  The photo…
