Crate Paper Mini

See my 'random' mini.... this mini is about the everyday words that take place at home. We have a certain routine... we kinda of say the same things everyday to ourselves or each other. It's rather funny but worth capturing. This is unique in every household and I think I should record it - my EVERYDAY words around the house mini!
To construct the pages - i gather many unlikely pieces - chipboard, corrugated board, cardstock, pattern papers, and even the CP embellishment packaging backing.... oh my fave has to be the peice of canvas I found hanging around my sewing machine.
page 1 - morning - it is rather the same 'wake up' call from hubby! He text me so I would jump from my bed - I am addictive to my iphone - he knows the trick!!! haha... then I wake up to coffee everyday. Love the smell in the home!
page 2- little ms piggy climbs out of bed - "milk please' - her immediate words - still hugging her pillow - then the slow morning crawl along - she picks up speed - goes into her play mode - this is where the same plea everyday in the home - "Can somebody play with me?" page 3- afternoon comes - my elder girl comes home from school - this is when I am at work - she usually does her homework like this - but somewhere in the late afternoon - she text me "When are you coming home?" - cute girl - she does this EVERYDAY
page 4 - evening - dad comes home - time to play - couch time - talk talk talk - play play play - we love to gather in the living room
page 5 - little one winds down with books - "can you read me a story" - her fave excuse to cuddle and snuggle up to me - we bond - we connect
Ok, that's all - I still have more pages to show - next time !

Once a upon a sketch

Do you like sketches? I love them for its endless possibilities. There is always something fun with different personalities and their interpretation. I love the variety on this sketch site.
Once upon a sketch ... check them out every 1st and 15th of the month.
Really cool inspiration. HERE
Anyway, this month sketch is really straight forward but I love to add some layers to make it MINE! LOL
let me share with you some techniques or my fave touches:
1. See this yellow frame... a TA chipboard. I rub some Distress Stain on it, rub some gesso and then add some Mica Flakes for added textures 2. I hand cut many many motifs from this set of Websters Pages. It's been a long while since I played with WP 3. On the background cardstock, I spray two different colours. Then I stamped with a script stamp. Hmm... or was it the other way ? Stamp or mist first? LOL 4. I stuck some cut outs on pop up glue dots to give it dimension. Hope you find this fun and inspirational.

some Prima love + RAK

Hi friends, what inspires you? Would love to hear your inspiration.
For me, nothing beats new products. When I saw these Prima shabby chic Resin Treasures, I knew I wanted them all. I love to dream of possibilities with them. For this layout, I used the 'windows' Resin, I dab some Distress Stains over it and then apply some glaze over. I love how 'golden' it looks.
Next up, I love a good color challenge. This month, Prima PPP colors are so 'autumn", browns, shades of neutral ........ yums!!! Just love it. Here's my interpretation. I love this photo of my lil sister. She is not lil anymore. She is a mother. I am so proud of her.
And finally as promised last month, I am givnig a RAK... yes.. these brand new Prima flowers and a BG stamp. Leave me a comment and I need recommendations from you. I like to know which site or who can design my blog header and background for me. I like to customize mine. Can you point me in the right direction by leaving me a link or contact? And you will be entitled to the draw for this RAK. Close this Friday, 23 Sept. thanks Have a wonderful week!
And if you are a local scrapper here in Singapore, refer to my SALE page. HERE

some Crate Paper Love

Did I post this before. I used the new Crate Paper Farmhouse to make this cute layout of my girl. She is loving writing, coloring and anything "homework".... I hope this serious learner remains like that when we start Primary school in 2 years time. haha. I love the deep reds and yellows of this collection of Crate... i like the vintage image... oh.. so cute!
I had a busy week and hope to rest and scrap more this week. :)
