some recent orders...

Here are some recent orders before the CNY.

My friend's friend ordered these frames & notebook for a farewell gift at work. I was abit worried with this order as the recipient is a graphic designer - it would be a challenge and embarassing if I created something not nice ;) But at the same time, I was honoured to be tasked with this project. I hope the recipient will love these:)

..and here is a 24page 8 by 8 album that my colleagues commissioned for a father-at-work. I believe the mummy will appreciate this first year album more than anyone ;) Pls click the picture for bigger view.

that's all i have at the moment. Am working on 2 coaster album order - after which I will be closing {mamashop} for a few months, to catch some good rest and in anticipation of the arrival of my 2nd princess:)

Happy Valentine's Day!!

Here's wishing all couple a happy valentine's day - and for the single souls out there, may u find love and happiness soon:)

this year, i did not scrap much for V-day as I promised to take a good rest during the CNY. I only managed to make these 3 tags last nite for sis, bro and tian's to go along with the chocolate gifts that I bought for them. So this is really limited edition from me ;)

i tot i could have scrap a mini album for my dear hubby - but im sooooooooo tired lately. i know he wouldn't mind coz i got him another gift which he needs and is more practical for a guy ;)

last min CNY cards

I tried making a few paper flowers from Aunt April’s YSS tutorial and it was fun. But a gentle reminder, its only good with thinner papers as u need to 'pleat' them into a circle.

and i made 3 CNY cards with these paper flowers:)

Layout { I LUV COFFEE!}

A LO based on a YSS sketch from 5th Feb's post.

This is my princess at 37months enjoying her Starbucks, and she can say "Starbucks Mocha Latte!".

our standard 'config' of starbucks

22 in a night...phew!

My proudest 2010 achievement - 22 cards 'massively producted' in 3 hours flat on last Thursday night. Great that En was cooperative and zzzz really early so I can start working on these cards.

The tips for quick cards I've learnt (1) plan the sketch in advance and try not to vary too much, otherwise u will be wasting time thinking (2) pre-cut the materials u need, so u can keep on moving like a production line (3) limit yourself to X amount of embellishments and have them ready, so u don't waste time fumbling around.

So far the response from the recepients are good. Thanks everyone and Gong Xi Fa Cai!!

for those born in the year of tiger, and qi-en's school. i saw them displayed @ the reception. Hubby said it is free advertisement for my {MamaShop}

these are 4 by 6 postcards either on double-sided PP or cardstock

6 by 6 cards for other teams..and more CNY postcards below:)

and this is going to penang :)

altered gift box

I've been reading many scrappers' blog on altering boxes and so I decided to try my hand at a small one. Got this mini mooncake paper box from Ah Sze and I altered it for a colleague's coming birthday. I love the results!!! Very encouraged to try more next time:)
