Paper Hibernation Ends

As dramatic as that sounds, I was back at paper crafting as soon as the boxes arrived in Kuala Lumpur! That was 18 months ago. The only hitch was I didn't have a proper corner or room for my craftwork. Thankfully, now after moving to our new home and after a great hubby shopped for the long awaited table, I am up at full speed with my cardmaking.

I have also found an active group of crafters on Facebook Scrapbooking and Cardmaking Malaysia. This month were are doing a tag swap. I'm. needless to say, thrilled to the bone.
 Below are some cards I made way back in 2011/

Out of Blog Hibernation

Started making cards once again!

Moving On

I have been so busy with the impending move back to Malaysia and have left the blog silent for the past few weeks. Today I will have to post my handmade cards to St. Luke's Hospice before I really forget. I hope to be able to continue cardmaking once I get settled in Kuala Lumpur. Something which I doubt will happen easily, with so many friends to catch up with and so many things and places to do! I have left Malaysia for far too long.
Looking forward to the move but feeling a bit sorry for myself for not being an expat wife anymore.

Dried Up

It was inevitable! Finally, I ran out of juice and my Muse was nowhere to be seen. I wanted to make cards but uninspired and with a glut of cards in my shoebox, finally I succumbed to a day of just tidying up my cardmaking boxes and storage. I found out I've loads of scrap left and noticed I had some folded cards ready to be decorated. So, please find below, the cards I've created from bits and bobs in my box.
An anniversary card made with decoupage technique, sprinkled with some extra fine yellow glitter and punched with Martha Stewart's border and corner punch.

A congratulations card for baby girl's arrival, background has been embossed with cuttlebug embossing folder, the stork image has been stamped and coloured in with promarkers, sentiment piece tied with grosgrain polka dot pink ribbon and stamped message with Stampin' Up stamp

I know I'm a sucker for pastel pink and roses and lace.

There are days I just love rolling the cuttlebug machine and the embossed background is a result of one of those days.

I also love bright and strong colours.

More "Flying" Theme

I am now truly bitten by the cardmaking challenges. After submitting my first ever to St. Luke's and receiving such encouraging support from their team, I've decided to submit another card in. Couldn't help myself. This time I've toyed with a more "masculine" look and decided to go for one of my favourite creatures, the dragon. I've stamped it using Stampin' Up spots (razzleberry, I think) and the papers came from Costco. I used a foiled die cut sentiment after finding out my stamped greetings were too large for the surface I intended. hahahahaha

Joanna Sheen House Mouse Decoupage

Today I've decide to show some of Joanna Sheen's House Mouse decoupage cards which I have made 2 months ago. When I get high and dry on ideas, I resort to just cutting with my scissors while I wait for my Muse to return. Unlike stamping, decoupage only needs a pair of awesome scissors and glue. My favourite decoupage are Joanna Sheen's House Mouse series. They're so cute.
