Miniature DIY

Pin It   
 My Lalaloopsy dollhouse was a hit and frankly I want my own LOL.  I started to do another version but this time the casing is a mooncake box instead of a lunchbox.  Obviously the season of mooncake just passed so there are pretty boxes everywhere.  But I didn't get any this year so I used the old boxes from last year and went ahead.

The making of mini shelves/furnitures.  The accessible paint is still my Martha Stewart silver metallic not sure if the color will blend in the house.

Here is my bed, again made of sponges, fabric, felt, trims, beads and buttons.

I'm testing how it would look like in the bedroom, not bad, but I don't like the metallic color.

While I procastinate on the dollhouse project, I was thinking/executing another project -- a toy store diorama!

Here's my first attempt for the display shelves

Here's Pete with the mini toys!

This diorama is progressing now instead of the dollhouse, so let's see in the coming days =)

On a side note I recently had an inventory of my mini Lalas, to date I have a total of 86!  There are new Target exclusives coming in so I will definitely go to Ebay for this, and for the remaining series I'll try my luck back home.  Yep I'm coming home again! Vacation time!

I still have the tendency to fill up my pages.  I'm still on the XL phase =)

Self-criticism

Pin It  

I've been a scrapper for such a long time, maybe I can consider myself seasoned and experienced, until I stopped scrapping.  Like any other scrappers I stepped back due to other priorities  but I did hang on to this hobby because it makes me feel happy with the process. 

I do blog hops to get inspiration, that's the very reason I have so many links in my blog hehehe

My last mini album was a breeze, I finished that in two sessions.  But there are times,  you just can't seem to pull together the bits and pieces, and this process gives me stress hahaha

Here's my last attempt at a project, let's just see how it turns out.

Happy memories mini

Pin It 
Bit by bit I'm accomplishing my pending projects.  Plus less scrapbook supplies from my stash, yey for that!

This is before I modpodged the whole cover and back for durability :)

I use vellum to break the monotony of kraft pages


Played with my stamp and paper shapers

Random stickers and embellies

added photo corners so it's easy to slot the photos






random paper goodness :)

Con-tenora scrappers

Pin It  
We call ourselves con-tenora, an inside joke that we are a team in the choir pit against the tenors LOL.

Anyway since yesterday was a public holiday, I invited my friends for a scrappy session.  It was a slow start but eventually they were able to create their own masterpiece.

I just taught them the basics for adding mists with stencils for an artsy effect.  Thankfully I have stocks of B5 sized canvas that they were able to use. My instaxshare printer came in handy for the photos they used, just the right size!

I love how their canvas blend in together!







I have no intention to scrap, but I did try.  Eventually I opted to finish one of my long overdue in-progress LO.

Hopefully we can do this again =)
