Welcome Home

Hey, all! Hope you're having a great week so far.. Me, I've seen better days. Got a lot of things going, deadlines to meet and stuff. But still thankful for my job. :) 

So on to free stuff!! I designed this digital stamp a while back and forgot to upload it.. I planned to draw houses to go with it but unfortunately, I haven't found the time.. Maybe on the next post, okay? :)

Hope you'll find this of use! This would really look pretty if you can cut the edges with scalloped scissors! Just a tip. ;)

Thanks, all, for the kind words and the awesome support!! :)

A Flowery Thank You for Your Greeting Cards

Hi, all! Soooo sorry for another long absence from blogging. My new blog, Beautiful Craft Spaces, is taking quite a lot of my time. But I'm having fun and I hope you'll drop by to take a peek! :) I also have a giveaway going on so.. well, you might want to check that out too since you're obviously into crafting or making greeting cards or scrapbook pages or paper crafts.

I'm giving away 4 issues of Simply Handmade magazine to one lucky winner!

I'm telling ya, these beauties have enough projects in them to keep you busy for a whole year! Click here for more details.

Thanks so much to everyone who commented on my last post. I'm still deciding if I should make another blog or just reformat this one for digi freebies. :) One thing's for sure, I'm giving away more digis!! I hope I'm not the only excited here. LOL

So for now, I'll leave you with this one..

And in the spirit of gratitude for your comments and support, here's a sentiment to go with the flowers. :)

I'm quite enjoying this digi freebie business. Although I can't really call it a business. LOL But I love it because I get to share stuff, even if they're just digis..

Thanks for dropping by!

A Freebie and A Giveaway! Cool huh?

Hi, all!!

Got another free digi for ya all! But before that, let me personally invite you to join in my blog giveaway!! I'm both excited and scared because it's my very first time to offer one so I hope you'll join in! It's actually on my other blog, Beautiful Craft Spaces. And here below is the price up for grabs! Not one but FOUR issues of Simply Handmade (ARV $60)!! Pure inspiration!

These have enough projects to keep you busy ALL year! Hope to see you there!

So on to the freebie! A lot of firsts for me.. first giveaway and first digi freebie that I drew myself!! Believe me, it wasn't without difficulty. I guess it shows. LOL Hope you'll be able to use it still!

One more thing before I end this post. You think it would be great if I open a new blog exclusively for free digis? I'm quite enjoying this digi freebie stuff and this blog here is for my projects... So. You think it could work? I can't promise to upload a new freebie everyday though and I won't be able to give you any of those gorgeous digis with dolls, cute kittens and puppies and other complicated stuff.. Just simpler ones. Hmm.. Well, let me know what you think! And please don't forget my giveaway! Kurly-Q is kinda looking lonely there being the only one in the game. LOL Hope you'll give her company! :D

Thanks everyone!!

My Homemade Corkboard Set for Mom

I finally completed my project for Mother's Day! :)


A corkboard set consisting of a corkboard {obviously},
a pen holder and a notepad holder

A photo of me, my mum and my sister, the girls of the family.

I'm sure you can all figure out how to do the corkboard. I just covered an illustration board with striped patterned paper, mounted the corkboard to it and embellished my heart out. :) So you'll need the following:
- illustration board
- cork board
- patterned wrapping paper
- embellishments (I used stamps, rub-ons, lace, flowers and a buckle)

As for the other components of the set, here's a step-by-step of how I did them.

Pen Holder

- canister
- patterned wrapping paper
- embellishments (flowers and lace for this one)
- adhesives (double-sided tape and quick-drying glue)
- scissors
- paper trimmer

1. I covered a canister with my patterned paper and embellished with lace and flowers. I recycled a Pik-Nik canister for this one as it was just the right size for me.
2. I cut out a strip of the patterned paper, around 1 inch in size and positioned it at the center of the canister in such a way that it created a checkered pattern (see illustration above).
3. I adhered it to place using a double-sided tape.

And we're done with the pen holder! Now on to the notepad holder..

Notepad Holder

- box
- cutter/scissors
- patterned wrapping paper
- patterned paper for the calendar
- calendar cut out or printed
- credit card protection sleeve
- embellishments

1. I chose a small box for the project and cut out the top. I covered it with patterned paper and set it aside.
2. It took me a while to figure out how to attach a pocket for a calendar. I'm so happy I thought of cutting out a credit card protection sleeve from my credit card holder! It saved me the time and effort I would have had to do to make a pocket out of plastic or transparency. Phew!
3. I adhered the protection sleeve to the covered box with double-sided tape. Then, I made a calendar out of patterned paper and a calendar page for the month of May. Size should be that of a calling card or credit card so it will fit perfectly into the credit card protection sleeve.
4. I inserted the calendar layout into the protection sleeve and again embellished with lace and flowers.

DONE! Wasn't that easy-peasy? :) I'm not sure I was as clear as I wanted to be though so if you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment and ask away.
