Christmas Bauble

I am currently decorating my Christmas tree. Apart from a set of Santa's Belly baubles, I plan to do the others by myself using the empty glass baubles I purchased from Michael's.

A few days ago I received a stamp set from Kanani. She's the talented designer that designs the photopolymer stamps sold at studiol2e. I really can't wait to get the other stamp sets.

I decided to use the above stamp set to make a Christmas bauble. Here is the picture of the bauble.

I used some brown Stazon ink to stamp the "December Documented" image on the glass bauble. I added some artificial decoration that I got from Michael's. It was not easy to stamp that image on a glass. If you have a trick to make stamping on glass less painful, please let me know :D.

Project Travel Central Europe (Part I)

I had a lot of pictures from our vacation trips. There is no way that I can make layouts for every single photo from the trips. I decided to make an album similar to Project Life (except that this is only for my travel pictures). I'm sorry for the crappy pictures, I will have to try to take pictures without the glare of the page protector next time.

I actually like this kind of project. It's a good way to kill your supplies and you get to include a lot of pictures, too.

- Studio Calico Roller Rink/Crack the Whip kits, as well some bits and pieces from Central High kit
- EK Success corner rounder
- Alphabet stickers from Pink Paislee, Webster's Pages
- Making Memories magnetic stamps
-Hey Project Life stamp set from 2peas/Studio Calico

Christmas Cards

These Christmas cards were made for Maile Belle's challenge, posted at SC blog a few weeks back.
I used the Stylish Sentiment set from Papertrey Ink (I fell in love with this set when I saw it). These cards are easy to make and I think they look elegant too.

*Note: I did not make the card topper myself. This Poinsettia card topper was sent by Kristi :).

-May Arts Chevron Ribbon
-Jolee's sticker
-PTI Stylish Sentiment set
-Basic Grey ribbon
-Miscellaneous cardstock.

There is A Way Out

Here is a layout I made for a picture my husband took in Berlin. It is actually a picture of the line of concrete slabs at the Holocaust Memorial.

I used the Studio Calico Crack the Whip/Roller Rink kit as well as some "upcycled" packaging from the SC kit.

15 Things I Love/Hate About Paris

These pictures were taken quite some time ago, when I was still living in Paris. I mostly used the items from Studio Calico Roller Rink kit, but I also used some small items from previous SC kits as well as other embellishments.

Hello Again!

Hi All,

It's been a long time since I last updated this blog. I've been busy with personal matters but I still did some crafting. I am going to post a bunch of projects today, so keep reading :D.

As a start, below is a picture of the bag of treats that I prepared for the kids on Halloween. It turned out that... no one knocked at my door!!! I ended up asking my husband to bring most of these bags to his office. At least some adults were happy with the sweet treats :P.

I used an old Stampin' Up set to make the round tags. As for the tickets, they are Knock Knock tickets. I covered up the "Stiff Drink" phrase printed on the ticket with "bag of treats"

-Glassine bag
-Stampin' Up Batty For You set
-Divine Twine Halloween Twine
-Fiskars rectangular hand punch
-Colorbox chalk ink, Versafine ink
