The Joy of Randomness

 Last night my friends and I were plan on making some mini albums and when I woke up this morning I have so many ideas of the page but the problem is I don't know what I gonna make mini album about ?? 

I browsed around on my computer for a while and still don't know which photos I wanna print out.

So instead of doing mini about something I decided to print out random stuff .

When I got to her house and start working on it I finally figured what I want to do on mini albums.

The title of this mini album is " Random Stuff "

Cover page I use splattered some white color on it just to give more detail.

Little flags fit perfectly on this page

 Card stock sticker and on those birds I use foam sticker to give it more dimension.

 To make this craft paper not too plain I use watermark ink on my stamp and stamp on this craft paper. Turn out totally cute.

A lot of journaling on this page. I take out chipboard banners and use it as boarder on this page.

Fun time and stuff. I punched pattern paper using Jenni Bowling punch and keep just the tail part to make those little banners.

That's it for the mini album.

The next project is my layout base on sketch on October Afternoon Sketch challenge.



I just love playing with October Afternoon sketch. They are simple and let me use a lot of my imagination to make my own page.

Tomorrow is the last day for blog challenge entry. I'm so excited !!

Easy peasy cards to make.

If you are here for the challenge please click here.

I haven't been crafty lately. 
 Just don't feel motivated but with the big pile of scrapbooking supplies I bought it's force me to get up and be productive.

So I decided to make all these lovely cards which I still don't know who am I going to sent them to lol

" I miss you dearly "
How to : 
- Cut out dear shape from Cindy Loo cartidg.
- Filled behind shape with white buttons.
- Stamp sentiment.

" Thinking of you "

I love this Sassafras paper collection. It's super cute !
 On this card I just cut out 6x6 pattern paper in the area that I love and add letter sticker then some lace and twine That's it easy peasy.

" Happy Day"

This card I made when I went crafting at my friend's house. Took me about 10 minutes  to finish this card. When I don't have sewing machine with me I love to use white gel pen to add stitch line on my project.

" You make me Happy "

Thank to my high school 's rule : Every student who wish to have long hair must tie their hair with dark blue or black bow. So what we can show off at school in the morning is who can tie the best bow. I never win but I 've got a lot of practice so you can see most of my bows turned out beautiful :P

I stamped days on canvas using staz-on I love how this wonderful ink pad is working on every surface.

" You &Me "
Another easy card I made. I cut out a bunch of these little people I don't know exactly what they're called Toilet sign , may be ? anyway I cut this out using Going Places cartrigde.

sewn around the page, add twine easy isn't it ?

What I've been waiting for the whole January is Studio Calico new kit Day Dream ( February) so this morning I woke up very early to order kits that I wanted but it was really disappointed that it's sold out. I still manage to get the main kit and some other things tho. This month kits they are include embellishment  with new Dear Lizzy Neapolitan collection

So right now I'm thinking about subscribe them that way I will be sure that I can get the  kits I wanted even add-ons.

Thanks for stopping by.

Have a great weekend

Something wonderful.

Hello again.

I wasn't plan on doing any crafts today but being sick and just laying around the hotel get me so bored.

So here is what I made today.

" Wonder-fall "

Instead of matted photos with papers I use fabric instead.

It was really easy to make except when it comes to sewn curve and circle.


If you know me or follow me on Instagram you should know how much I love taking photos of myself  lol

Every morning I'd get up take a shower then dress up even though I'm going nowhere.

Then I take pictures of myself well... actually it's intend for my cloths.

This layout is inspired by PaigeEvans's gallery. It fills with colorful and cute layout !!

" You're so sweet" card

I bought clear embossing powder from Joann the other day and I love using it sooooo much !!

On this card I just use Versamark and clear embossed Thank so much on craft paper.

Then just embellish with scrap papers,ribbons and rosette from American Crafts

" I miss you dearly"

I love this dear on Cindy Loo  Cricut cartridge I've use this on so many projects and here is another one.

I cut this dear out of craft paper as card base and pattern paper from October Afternoon then adhere it on top of craft paper .

Then glued buttons on another piece of scrap paper and put them under dear cut out. Adhere using foam tape.

Thanks for stopping by.

Have a great weekend !!

LOL every day :p

I have to admit that my life is not perfect but from that imperfection and bad things that happened .
I tend to learn how to enjoy and laugh at simple thing I ran into.

I also have a lot of friends telling me thats a good quality of me that make them want to hang out with because doesn't matter how not so funny story they told me I still LMAO !! ( a lot of time I laugh at inappropriate story lol )

Well that is what's life about , right ? 

You just don't know when is your last laugh so just try to laugh as much as you can.

 I came up with this lay out it's one of my favorite .

Couple weeks ago Todd and I went to have lunch at Illegal Pete's in Greenwood village at the time I went to get my drink I saw this and couldn't stop laughing ( almost choke on my food lol )

On Ice mat chine they glue a piece of paper with photo of Ice Cube 

and the thing that make me laugh most it when I get my tea they put Ice-T photo on it !!

I'm a big fan of Law&Order SVU beside Detective Elliot , Ice-T is my fav.

So here is my lay out 

" LOL everyday "

Base on photos I have it's blue and yellow so to make things easier I pulled out yellow and blue papers out . Then dig through my ribbons and embellishment box.

Cut ribbons into banner the use tiny attacher to keep them on the page.

I love adding pinwheel on all my bright layout because it makes my layout even brighter .

Next Project " Baby it's cold outside " Card

base on this quote on Cateredcrop blog 

Button up your overcoat,
When the wind is free,
Take good care of yourself,
You belong to me!
     ~ lyrics by B.G. DeSylva & Lew Brown, 1928

Pattern paper and element from October Afternoon  FarmHouse Collection
Stamp from DearLizzie Christmas stamp
Add doily and buttons I got from Michaels

Last Layout I designed for SYC Blog hop over to see more inspiration from other talented designers.

A lot of layering.
