Look back on yesterday...


It was Unity Hip Hop Day! I always like to take advantage of Thursday Hip Hop, at least do a challenge and make something with Unity. I haven't get the whole science down on Hip Hopping... I'm just slow and don't really know anyone... but I do like to pop in, at least to check out what's going on. Finally, I inked up one of my favorite stamp from Unity, got candy? I love candies. Hehe!

I did this for the Bright and Bold challenge! As usual, I went out of control with spica pens, glitter, and stickles. LOL!
Happy Friday!

more...

Happy Thursday! More on these papers, I just don't know what to do with them. So, I found a binder which I had for a long time ago... I painted it with distress crackle paint (frayed burlap), distress it some more with Tim Holtz distress ink vintage photo, add paper, Ian and a few flower. Not to shabby!
Here is what inside... I used the new Tim Holtz idea-o-ology mask and airbrushed.


And I made a Ghirardelli Box, there was a great tutorial on SCS, oh what fun!

I don't know what to do with that paper!

Okay, here is the scoop... I belong to a club called to the Paper Gang at my LSS (a club which meet monthly, and we tries out new techniques and products), it's a fun group, everyone is very nice. Plus, it take me out of my comfort zone. Go Challenge! So, for the month of December, I got shrink film, rub-on, and these paper. I sat there and starred at them for many nights... Just don't know what to do with these paper. Finally, here is a card that I made for the mft sketch challenge with the leftover paper. It didn't turn out bad at all. I like it.

A better day...

Today is a better day! Work was horrible yesterday, the computers kept on crushing... It's amazing how much we depends on modern technology. Plus, someone decided to share their cold with me (I don't know who, but just want to say thank you very much. LOL!) Anyways, no more complaining. At least, I have a day off, have some chicken soup and just taking care of the cold and resting. When I checked my mailbox today, how exciting... I recieved this beautiful card made by my friend Rose... Thank you, thank you. You are the best! I feel 280% better, hehe!


Since I feel LOVE, I made this card with my Dress Me Anya. I used my new Koh-i-Noor colored pencils. I love them too... I added some *bling* design on her top with my gel pens (copper). And I can't resist the hearts.
love, {hugs}

Kung Hei Fat Choy!

It's Chinese New Year! The year of the Ox. I wish everyone good health, great fortune, and prosperity.



So, what am I going to do? It's past 11pm, I want something yummy... There, I grab a Skinny Cow and start thinking what to do. I wanted to ink up some more of my new valentine stamps: Milkshake and Dessert first, both stamps were calling me.. (yeah, how am I doing? my stamps are calling me! Just kidding. Don't worry, I'm okay. LOL! See, this is what happened what I want dessert... haha!)


Just a very simple card. I used the scallop punches, copic marker, glaze gel pens, liquid pearl, and I colored the straws fuchsia. :-D

one page at the time!


Woohoo, I did another page. I am so proud of myself. :-D I only have been sitting at my craft room all day! I organized a bit, watch some TV, did this and that, everything else other than scrapbooking. LOL! At least, mission accomplished! Maybe tomorrow...

Kennebunkport, ME. Such a cute little town. Beautiful waterfront and a town center full of unique shops and restaurants. My hubby and I had a great times there. Wonderful memories!

Finally...

I haven't scrapbook for soooooo long... I'm so behind! My trip to Hong Kong 2005. These pictures are taking from the famous Flower Market in Kowloon. At the Flower Market, dozens of flower shops, all different variety of flowers and plants... you named it, they have it. My personal favorite bamboo and orchids. I kept this page quite simple, no stamps/blings/flowers. I figured to start simple with a no brainer page. I am hoping this weekend, I can get a few more pages done.

Ian is just super cool!!! I made this for the SCS color challenge last week. I used the cuttlebug number collage & the scallop punch from SU, and dressed up Ian with this "cool" outfit. I love the colors! Doesn't he look great?
I just got the new Unity January KOM, tgf Angel and Mermaid Anya, and the Koh-i-Noor pencils... I'm so excited! Later, less talking/blogging, I have a date with my new stuff. LOL!

I love these little boutiques/shops from Amuse. This is my newest one Lingerie Shop, ohhhh... sexy!!! LOL. I used a technique that I learned from Jenn's class, I inked my floral vines with the essential glue pad, then covered with pewter ultrafine glitter, except my cat is wearing the left over glitter. :-D I like it... so simple, but yet very cool!

Aloha Anya is just perfect. :-D She is so pretty with her coconut tops (covered with Tim Holtz distress stickles in walnut), I added more bling here and there with my spica pens, and I didn't forget about her pretty jewelry.

From $1 pocket planner... Now, it's priceless! I will carry this little pretty book for the next year. Haha!!! The paper is from the Landry Line Coastal Comfort, Hello Ian and Pretty Hat Anya from the Greeting Farm, the fancy border is from CTMH. And can't forget my pretty flowers.

Hello Lily!


Lily the fairy, it's too cute. She is from the Pink Cat Studio. It is a super cool challenge, no stamp necessary, you just have to download Lily from the website, print it and GO! Here is the link http://pinkcatstudio.blogspot.com/2009/01/lily-fairy-contest.html. The deadline is Jan 13. You still have time!
Here is my entry. I am quite happy with it. I love the color (anything not green and red is good, LOL!) I found this paper with my stack of CS, it caught my eye. I used my nestabilities, I love those things, super cool. Then I colored, colored, and colored. Lily has a polka dot dress (I colored her dress with copic marker RV14 and dots were created by the colorless blender) And, I used my spica pens and lots of stickles. Hope you like it!

WHat? Bag Lady!

Who? Me! Nah... okay, I love my purses... totally a purse and shoes girl. I don't see anything wrong with this. LOL! So, when I saw this stamp set from MFT at my LSS, I must buy it. Hehe... I submitted this card for the MFT guest designer challenger for February, I might get lucky. Hehe... As usual, I went crazy on airbrushing. What do you think about her top? Not bad, huh? I was reading my January and February issues of Lucky magazine, I quess the watercolor floral is huge this season (I want to do sequins, but I don't think glitter will show too well on the picture), I also went BOLD on her shoes and purse. Oh la la! And the purses at the window, I quess "nude" color is the next big thing, so I sticked with the earthy brown purses.

Hope you like it!

No time!

No time for anything today! Don't you hate those days... but anyways, still need to get my "fix" (I meant cardmaking, LOL!) Here is my entry for SCS sketch challenge, a very cool layout. So, I stamped a few cute bunnies, colored them, added some Stampendous dot sparkles, doodles more dots, add a couple of flowers... can't find 2 brads to match, I used 2 yucky yellow brads and I covered them with lavender stickles. I was so proud of myself. LOL!

Wednesday, January 7, 2009

It's all about the challenge?


Another great challenge from SCS, such cool colors. So, not me! But I kinda like it. I missed using my Unity stamps. Tada! A strange little card made with the December KOM... A few punched flowers....
Happy Wednesday!

Glitter everywhere...

Today's try a new technique at SCS, super cool... Glitter, glitter, and more glitter! Hurray!!!
I just can't pass out this opportunity to use glitter. I used tacky tape to create horizontal lines, then I go sparkle glitter everywhere... Yippee! And I colored image with my colored pencils (OMGosh, I didn't use my copic markers). That's BIG!!!

Later...

Monday, January 5, 2009

I don't have a title today! LOL!!


Happy Monday! I don't have a title today.... I just sat here thinking for a title, my mind was just blank.... So no title, just sweet adorable Ian thinking about you! {hugs}

Sparkling red heels!


Happy Saturday! It has been really crazy at work lately... I need some therapy! The doctor called for a Dorothy Anya. A simple design is what the doctor prescribed, no extra buttons or ribbons. Just a natural color cs, 2 simple flowers, a bit of coloring, and her lovely *bling* red heels.
Enjoy! Off to play some Wii.

Love my...


Cooties!!!
Aren't they the cutest! Just too funny... I was just in Michaels the other day, checking out Christmas clearance sale. And all their rubber stamps were 40% off, so I decided to check them out. This "cooties!" stamp from All Night Media caught my eye! I love it! Got to make a card with them. Hehe!
Have a great "cooties" weekend!
