A year has passed.... memories edged in our hearts........ beautiful moments captured! This has been a great year! I am thankful for the journey...... the new experiences...... new skills picked up(photoshop, lol)..... I am learning to be confident in my style of scrapping.... Textures, layering, distressing.... colors.... There is a sense of romanticism mixed with whimiscal softness to most of my layouts! Ok, so what style do you call mine? LOL Here's a review of some of my favorite works for 2010: Beam : New Technique I learnt.... gesso a plain CS and then play with diluted paints to create your own background. Sweetheart: I love the bright vibrant colors on this page Bond: My signature style of textures, layering and distressing! All so me! Look up: A new way of playing with die cut paper. Tilt it for a change! How fun! Favorite things: Colors, colors and spray inks!!! All up my alley! Tag: a fun way to create a cute border. Dressform: I love the bodice MOST. Creating with Websters Ruffle Trim. So Hollywood, so glam! I like Ok, that's all for now! It is hard picking my favorites! I realise telling the STORY is important for me! The journaling, the photo... scrapping is NOT about major 'decoration' only! It is about capturing the stories for my family!
Hi friends, how was your Christmas! 2 days before Christmas, I fell sick....... really bad flu bug and I had to lie in bed for 2 days. What a bummer!!! By Christmas Day, I was much better and so thankful I can sit up and spend time with family and friends. Here's a project I did with my children: Wrapping presents for their favorite church pastors and teachers. I used some older collection of Websters and decorate these brown lunch bags. I used a Vellum here and I really love the sentiments on this paper. And this cutie... my girl made this for her favorite pastor. What a cute deer! And this one for a special lady. Layering vellum with paper! Simple and sweet wrappings! We put a OPI Nail Polish in each of these bags! Hope you had a great holiday season! See you in 2011. Happy New Year to you!

It's time for our MOnday sketch over at THE SCRAPPIEST. >>> here. My version "Chef"........ I use the lovely Sweet Season for this sketch and the papers, embellishments from WP just suits the story i want to tell here. Lots of distressing, inking.... tearing.... folding... just love adding my touches!!! And the Websters Classes continues to inspire me: I love Iris' Dressform challenge. And the good thing is I manage to cart this lovely back from Penang. What a nice treat, now i can use it immediately for this challenge. I made a ruffle bodice toga piece with this white Websters Trim. Love love it! And the lovely flower bouquet from Websters. We can add our own touches to it. I punch a butterfly from the Vellum piece and added the sparkle button. Next challenge is Ellen's Table Setting. She has such cool and easy-to-make ideas. I made place cards for my Christmas lunch. Pray hard I will not burn the lunch or else everyone eats takeout pizza!!! *haha* ok, that's all for today. I am one happy gal after playing with Websters! And I have more ideas swirling in my head..... still wanting to create more with WP!

After coming home from vacation, a pile of work and chores awaits me! Sigh... what do I do? Yes... turn to Websters Pages Class..... they are running some gorgeous online classes now! Seriously after I took 1 hour off and plunge into my stash of Websters papers... my mood just lit up! I made this Christmas tags and presents. Just made me smile! Anabelle's Christmas Tag. I love this shape. i made a LO before with this technique... here's I just size it smaller to make a tag. I love playing with the Vellum from Websters. .See I dab a bit of white paint on the edges too. Festive Wrapping by Hilde. I made a gift bag and made some pleats and fold it up to make a fan at the top. A nice touch for the gift. Added some berries, bloomers and buttons. Seriously I love all things Websters!!! And this one... 'normal' wrapping except I folded pleats to top it off. I just love adding textures... with the twine as well. Hope this inspires you for your Christmas wrapping!!! Thanks to Websters Pages for these inspiration. I will be back tomorrow for more!!! YAY! Have a happy week ahead!
