a little bit of story teller love...

Hi Everyone,

Back with a project to share... a little something that I created using the Crate Paper Storyteller Collection and all its fun embellishments. It's hard to say which one product that I love most about this collection cause there's just too many... but seriously, I can't get enough of that cork pattern paper and the chipboard and stand out pieces are just too too too cute! Love them all!


And here's a close up the chipboard flower set from the stand out embellishment pack - love all the layering details and also check out those bingo pieces. How fun!


and more fun elements from the collection and using the circle stamp from Studio Calico collection....



Thanks for stopping by everyone and hope you're having a fun week!!


ps. The giveaway for the latest Creating Keepsake Special Issue is still open, don't forget to leave a comment on the previous post if you're interested in winning a copy. Thanks everyone!!!

Giveaway!!! CK Simple Scrapbook Issue CLOSED

Guess What!!! I have another Creating Keepsake Issue to giveaway and this time it's for the latest special issue Simple Scrapbookfilled with tons of inspirations for that simple side of us!


And here's one of my layout that was published in this issue, sharing the simple scrapper in me; creating little embellishment clusters in certain areas of the layout and thus maintaining that white space to let my photos shine.

CK Winner Details

I know that I say this all the time, but seriously... time really does fly back (seems to disappear on me). Can't believe that it's already Tuesday and I think the next time I look up from my desk it might be Friday.  Things seems to have gone in fast forward mode for me, as I've been traveling nonstop from Singapore to Jakarta to Bangkok to Singapore to New Zealand to Singapore to Bangkok to Singapore to Jakarta. Crazy right? And that was only in the past 4 weeks.  uhmmm...

Anyway moving on the more funner things.... the lucky winner of the Creating Keepsake May/June Issue is.....


Congrats Anke!!!


Please email me your address details so the wonderful ladies at CK can get this out you.
Thanks again everyone!!!

getting ready for NZ Autumn Escape...

Finally a little breath of fresh air... the past couple of days have been the craziest ever, with back to back business trips to Bangkok and Jakarta, the BIG apartment move (love the new apartment, finally more space) and then getting ready for the most exciting event of the year - I'll be teaching at the New Zealand Autumn Escape 2012!!!


Not sure where to start and sometimes, wonder if it's all a dream (until I get the email reminders on the things that I need to prepare and do, oops LOL) and just in a few more days, I'll be meeting up with two amazing ladies to go through the final check list for my classes. OMG - that's like in 8 days!!! (reality finally sinking in).

But at least...
  • tickets are confirmed
  • hotel rooms are booked
  • hubby has the trip all planned (well somewhat)
  • class samples are created (phew)
  • class instructions have just been sent (like today LOL)
  • class presentations are being drafted (making the most of that 6+ hour plane trip) 
  • and I'm flying back to Singapore tonight, to catch that plane on Friday!!! (the important part)
I know there's still a few more things to be done, like figure out just how hot or cold it's going to be over there and to finally start packing (super scared that I'll forget to take the class samples - please remind me, otherwise I think Nic might just kill me LOL).

And on the topic of classes... have you guys all seen the sneaks??? Don't forget to check out the full details HERE and there's still a few more spots left if you haven't signed up yet. Trust me, you'll have a super fun time and get to work with super yummy products. Plus on top of that - I have a little surprise for everyone attending my classes...

Can't wait to finally meet everyone in person!!!  See you guys soon!!!
