BPC Process Class challenge - Slides

I swear I haven been up to date in sharing my layouts with you all. Sometimes maybe we procrastinate so much. Especially so when the item hits #1 in your to-do list, you will dread to do it. I use Evernote to organise all my to-dos, but I usually don't finish them in the order of importance, usually it ends up as doing them in the order that I feel is convenient , or those that I want to do get done first. Sometimes, it gets funnier. I have a to-do list, but I do other things , and when it get done, I type them into the to do list just so that I can check them off happily. Does it happen to you? Do share :)

Anyhow, here is another layout I meant to share with you guys for quite sometime. It was done during the period of them when I scrap a bunch of mixed media style pages, just because I have my mediums out and convenient to reach for :)

This layout is an assignment for the class Process by Big Picture Classes with Catherine Davis. Catherine is such a wonderful designer, love her style that is always so timeless and artistic. This challenge is to use slider frame. Catherine has hers cut out using Silhouette machine. I have meant to do this layout for a long time too , but I was lazy to pull out my silhouette. A few months later, I bought a boardgame that has sheets of punched out chipboard cubes. After punching out all of those game pieces, I realise the remaining can be used on a scrapbook page or some alter art. Hence I saved them in my scrap room. A few months later, I revisited the classroom and the idea struck me, that I can use this chipboard negative to create layout for this challenge :)

I gesso over the entire chipboard so it becomes smooth and sturdier and opaque white. 
I limit the layout to just 3 colors, white black and gold. It's simple and I love how it turns out!

Thanks for stopping by. I'm looking into creating an editorial calender so that I become more consistent with my posting :) Well, and we all know that this "to-do-task" cannot be #1 on my to-do list or it will never get done! Haha! 

Till next time :) Ciao!

Handmade Album (paperbag)

Hello all. I definitely have been neglecting my blog. When school and all kicks in, I'm busy busy busy. Not to mention the Wisdom tooth which decides to swell up and cause chewing a pain. OUCH.

Ok, let's talk about scrappy things instead that makes us happy shall we?

Here I have with me, 2 more handmade album to share.

This is a album is made out of paperbags. There are 4 paper bags in all, creating 4 large pockets and 8 sides pages. Each of the large pocket holds 2 tags. In addition to the large pockets, there are also several smaller pockets where you can slot in ephemeras as well. There is a ribbon closure on the cover to secure all your photos and anything that you had stuff inside :) This album is approximately 4 inches by 5 inches

If you are interested in this handmade mini album, feel free to contact me at I will be glad to answer any queries.

Thank you for stopping by!
