quick tags & more

its a fruitful weekend at home, scrapping lots of xmas goodies!

I sure love my scallop punch as it makes life so much easier for me! Here is a 'mass production' of gift tags which will be individual embellished for the extra touch.

tada!! the final look (if u still remember the white paperbags from my previous post, here they are!)

happy wrapping:)

and a notebook for a very busy bee

these are MR chipboards from Last Xmas (OMG!) and I made them into fridge magnets. Pardon the lighting as it was taken at wee hours in the morning.

these are xmas gifts for the little kids of my friends & colliks - mainly to be use as a bag tag for the kids in school or childcare. Hope they like it just as I do, I enjoyed making them so much!

random christmas crafting

I've gearing up for christmas early and have completed a few projects (ahem, proudly). Somehow, each year I tried to start off early, but procrastination came in and things got out of hand, and my hubby will see me burning midnite oil to finish my crafted gifts ;) that's me! huge procrastinator!

these are plain paper bags that I bought from daiso. I had fun misting, stamping and decorating them - they will be used to hold little gifts for my friends:)

got this memo box from Krafter's Paradise long long time ago and haven't been putting them to good use. Finally add some touches to it, and it looks amazingly beautiful (thickskinned, but i really love the effect!). It can be used as a trinket box to hold your girlie stuff, or use it as a memo holder, and I even plan to put a mini album in one of them :)

well, a notebook always comes in handy in our job. and here is one for Ms T @ work :)

I had fun lately making mini album out of cardstock, thick PP and just glue. This is one mini for a SAHM friend of mine:) Hopefully this raise her mood when she feels down during those 24hrs x 365days of non-stop parenting. Honestly, I doubt I can survived being a SAHM, my patience is so limited. So hats off to C, my dear friend:)

And this is the FIRST xmas project I have completed for 2011, an art journal for a little boy :) Oops, I guess the mummy will be reading here - so just a sneak preview for u.

stay tuned to my 'collection' of name tags for the kids, and more quick and go gift-tags!

birthday stuff

i've been getting lots of spam comments on this blog lately, since it wasn't a protected blog. I wonder if anyone out there is having the same fate as me? It gets on my nerve when I get such comments and seriously thinking of switching to another blog. But being the most un-technical savvy me, it is a tough move! ;)

so, what have i been up to the last few weeks?? been busy squeezing time out for xmas crafting before it all goes haywired. Not easy with two kids begging to 'share' my supplies. Most of the time, little one messed up my supply, while the big sis looks like a scrapper in the making :)

here is a card inspired by a design by my aunt April Yap's 2Peas - and it reminded me of those manila envelopes sealed with string. It is so appropriate for the birthday of our Dept Admin:)

tried to prepare these paper flowers in advance so it comes in handy when i want to make a card / tag quickly :) learnt the short cuts of scrapping!

a little tag for baby schrainne's full month.

stay tune with lots of xmas crafting come up soon!
