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!

It's beginning to look a lot like

Pin It  

I was kitting stuff for a new mini album I'm planning to make when I saw scraps of Christmas stuff.  So in less than 5 minutes I made my first Christmas card. =)

Let's have some snack!

Pin It 
I did procastinate on the dollhouse and I've been busy lately.  Plus Christmas is coming! Panic mode again!

Anyway I did finish this quick and simple DIY dining table and chairs for my mini Lalaloopsy.
All materials except the paint are from Daiso.

Chairs are square blocks of wood that I painted with silver, I added cushion using scraps of fabric and wool as padding. The table is a wood coaster, I used the same square block as a stand for the table. The small table centerpiece lace is a sticker embellishment.  And tadah!

Care for some tea?

I managed to squeeze in some time to do a mini album too.  This is for the bridal shower we had last weekend.  Size is approximately 4" x 5" just the right size to fit instax photos :)

I have a few more simple DIY miniatures that I finished as accessories for my dollhouse/diorama.  Hopefully I can find time to finish all the projects running around the creative side of my brain.
Have a creative week ahead!!!
