It's Daddy's Day

Last week, I made a card with Dotted Swiss Bazzill's 80# Cardstock (Salt), with pop-up letters (using my newly bought Helmar Zapdots), freehand cut of the pink and red heart shapes and I added some red buttons on the upper left and right corner (wanted to create an illusion of a tie. Not sure if it works. Can you see 'it'?). Oh, and I forgot to mention that I got my Sizzix Sizzlits Decorative Strip Die By Tim Holtz-Upon A Time Alphabet!! Now you know where I get the die-cut alphabets from. ;)

I had a great time participating the biggest charity durian fest (Jom Durian V) in Subang Jaya on Sunday. It was a 'celebration and contribution' day for those who took part on that day. The objective of the annual charity event is to raise funds for the Children's Wish Society of Malaysia. 

So, how do you celebrate Father's day? I hope you all had a great time on Father's Day!

The Joy of Scrapbooking

One of the most common ways to capture memories is through photographs and scrapbooking has become a safe, fun, creative method to preserve the photos. It also brings out the wonderful story through the art displayed. Most importantly, your photos and mementos can be kept and viewed by future generations.

Scrapbooking doesn't need you to be a skilled artist in order to produce a creative unique layout. A simple cut and paste is all you need to complete one scrapbook. Just remember, there is no boundaries and  limitations for creativity. Even if you simply paste everything in one page, you will get something out from it. To me, the parts or pieces that you gather bring to the completion of your work. So, don't be afraid to mix and match.

If you prefer to use a a pre-made layout for your photos, you can try scrapbooking.wikia. Below is an example of their pre-made layout. Ready your art papers, scissors, and some embellishments to go with it. Then, just put your photo in and you're done! Have fun with scrapbooking!
