Random doll crafts

Pin It  

It has been a while yet again, I thought I'd just share some random doll/toy stuff I've created.

Here's a hat/round bag for my doll.  I made it to match her outfit.  Basic material are 2 pcs of juice caps that I covered with scrap fabric.

And yes I still make doll clothes once in a while, like these girls are wearing.

And I'm still into miniatures so I made this wall shelf/hanger using popsicle sticks, pinch clips and sticks.

Then I made a standing shelf as well.

I wish I can find time to finish my mini Lalaloopsy doll house so I can move forward to create other display boxes and dioramas.

Meanwhile here's my completed playroom for Jessie.  It will stay this way for a few months I guess, until I can think of other diorama idea.

Wonderful life 2015

Pin It  
Happy New Year!  I still can't grasp that it's now 2015! My blog has come a long way since I started in 2006, though I don't post often, I still believe someone is taking time to visit and look at my projects.  So thank you for the visit!

Here's another mini album/journal book I did for a friend. Size is 6x6 so I can maximize the 12x12 papers. I created a lot of empty spaces so she can freely add photos and journaling.

additional note papers she can write on

Hidden tags/notes

I need to create another canvas LO very soon, I hope I get the mojo to start.

A fairytale

Pin It  

I made another mini album, this time with photos! It's a gift for a dear friend who is getting married very soon!

I made around 20 pages

Simple cover with stickles, flowers and pearls

As always I added charms, letter initials from Heidi Swapp and a wood "LOVE" from Prima

I just saw this stamped image from my stash but I don't own the stamp, perfect for this album!

City of Love

A very old rub-on, love the imperfection ;)
I love adding transparencies randomly

Those letter stickers are lovely, I've kept them all these years ;)

When will I ever find my own? =P

Minty Christmas Tags

Pin It  

I love tictac, so imagine my excitement when I saw this giant tictac with mini tictacs.

Of course I can't finish them all so I was thinking of adding these cuties to my  DIY gift tags.  I wanted it to be more creative but I was on a rut so this is the best I can come up with.

A new adventure

Pin It  
I admire those people who have fancy handwriting.  All the more those fun and swirly quotes using either pen, brush or chalk.  Ahhh that is called modern calligraphy, so finally after several attempts to squeeze in my busy? schedule I managed to sign up for a class.

And it was worth it!

I signed up from Katrina Alana.  I liked the materials they provided, very detailed!

She's very knowledgeable in this field and quite experienced so you get to know tips during the class.  The class was hands-on and she's helpful in doing a demo.

I noticed that most of the attendees are way better than expected, I feel like a prep student as compared to their writing. Yaiks!

Anyway, I try to practice every other day since I attended the class.  As clumsy as I am, I spilled all the remaining ink from the class. Argggh.  I do have an ink from Daiso which I have yet to try.

I realized that I'm not into slant writing, so I would pursue at what I'm comfortable with.  I'm a slow learner but I think practice can improve my handwriting. Aja!
