Hi there lovely crafters! :) Have noticed the recent trend (well maybe not so recent LOL)? I have spotted many mixed media projects around and they always looks so very beautiful! When I bought this little notebook, I had just that in mind. To alter it, mixed media style. This is the outcome...

Tinkerbell Inspired Banner

Hello there!! This month the Design Team is sharing projects inspired by vellum. I'm sure you've been amazed by the inspiring projects so far. Today I'd like to share mine :) It's a banner that I made for my little girl's Birthday party which was to a tinkerbell theme. I knew the vellum paper by Doodlebug would be just perfect! :) 

The vellum was used for the leaves and layers of the banner pieces and what I did was to place the banner at the dessert  table. Here's my banner

Close-ups of the banner pieces. I layered it on top of a plain coloured cardstock and also tucked some vellum leaves behind the flower

Altered Tealight Holder

I'd like to share this project I recently made for a wedding reception main table centrepiece. For those of you who don't already know, I'm a sucker for all things vintage and feminine..I chanced upon this lovely tealight holder and thought it would make a perfect centrepiece.

To go along with the candle holder, I altered two more little tea lights and a tall 6" candle.

They were rather simple to make. All you need is strong adhesive, twine/hemp cord & flowers and bling!

Here are some pics for you to take a look at:

Materials Used:

Hardware: Tealight holder, Candles
Hemp Cord: Craft supply
Flowers, Bling & Charm: Craft Supply
Dies: Sizzix & MFT

Storybook Page

Hello there! Sharm here to share a storybook page using the Hip Hip Hooray Collection. For those of you who are going 'gah, storybook page?' well, simply put, it is very similar to the very fast growing mode of scrapbooking called project life. I shall be very honest with you.. this is my very first attempt at this current-in-trend scrapbooking method.

I have always wanted to have a go at it, but was worried that I may not be able to catch up and maybe even run out of photos to scrap. But the beauty of this is, you need not follow what everyone else is doing. You just need to go at your own pace :)

Since I had the privilege of making one for my DT assignment this month, I must say, I LOVE This!! and the fact that Doodlebug Designs caters for this trend is simply amazing! Imagine the cutesy spreads you can come up with ;)

Without further delay, here's my spread ;)

I chose to document my wish list for my two girls and instead of using the usual pink for girls, I wanted to try something different and feel this theme turned out more than just right. Here are some closeups:


What I did was to further embellish the simply put cards of the said collection and on the last photo, I cut out a 12x2 strip of patterned paper and embellished it with washi tape! :)

Materials Used:

Spring Themed Exploding Box

Hello again Doodlebug fans! Sharm here to share a little Easter Exploding Box. So what exactly is this exploding box? It's a box that looks perfectly normal on the outside, but when you lift the lid, it's opens the box into a flat paper with lots of pop-ups and layers! Like a Jack-in-the-box, only the scrapbooking way lol! :)

So here's how I made my project:
Step 1: Score a 12x12 sheet of paper at 4" & 8". Cut to off the for corner squares
Step 2: For the lid, score at 4 1/8" & 8 1/8"
Step 3: Fold the make a box & its lid
Step 4: Embellish!

Some Close-ups:

The perfectly normal looking box :)

Ta da! Once you open the box

Sequins Altered Box

Hello there!! This month the Design Team is sharing projects using sequins. For those of you who already know, I need not stress on how, absolutely gorgeous the ombre sequins by Doodlebug are..! :) I'm sure you've been amazed by the inspiring projects so far. Today I'd like to share mine :) It's a trinket box that I made using 3 different colours of sequins and some flowers by Petaloo!

First I slapped some heavy gel onto the surface of the box. Next, I dropped sequins, one colour at a time onto the gel. Lastly, I add the Petaloo flowers. I used the heavy gel cause it sticks everything together very well. You can opt for any strong adhesive or glue that you favour ;)

Here's my project:
