Saturday Inspiration: Treat Pouch!

Super quick post because it’s late and I have been frustrated all day with this internet connection problem of mine! I can’t upload and even browse sometimes! So I can finally post now.

Here is a new tutorial video from me for the Saturday Inspirations post over at Loves Rubberstamps. It’s so simple to make and also quite cute. This is especially perfect for when you want to mass produce treat pouch/bag!

True Love

Heya all! I had so much fun yesterday, meeting my old friend Jeane. We go way back while I was in college. We were web friends through an online community. We lost touch but when I started papercrafting a few years ago, I was introduced to a few Indonesian crafters, and there she was! She was visiting from Sydney and we were like, “Hey… Aren’t you….?” and the rest is history!

We spent the afternoon chatting and flipping through inspirations. I also purchased a couple of stuff from her that she had brought from Sydney. So I am a happy crafter throughout the day ;)

Anyways, here’s a new card I’d like to share with you today.

It’s Your Birthday!

Yes, it’s someone’s birthday somewhere right?! Hehe. Here’s a new card I made using one of my all time fave manufacturer, Some Odd Girl. I have been eyeing this stamp for ages, and when they had a sale a little while ago, I snatched it!

Get Well Soon with Nurse Tilda ;)

Happy Eid Al-Adha to those who celebrate! I just got back from the mosque and we are ready to feast! Ugh, I spent the whole day cooking yesterday and believe me… I don’t really feel like eating at the moment. But the beef curry I made was really tender and begging me to fork through them. Perhaps a bit later for late lunch :D

Anyways, time for a new card. This is a card for my DT post over at The Rubber Buggy. Have you gone to their store yet? The new Winter Wonderland collection from Magnolia is now available to order! I am sifting through it and getting ready to get my hands on these new beauties. In the mean time, here’s my new card :)

Epic Inspired Birthday Card

It’s a new day again! I love start of the week after a good weekend. Well, partially good weekend for me this time hehe. I had an upset stomach throughout the weekend after I went to my cousin’s wedding. I think it’s because it’s a garden wedding and it poured.. So the wind and chill got to me. But I’m okay now and am so happy to be home. Tomorrow my whole extended family will be at my house to celebrate Eid Al-Adha. So many food and family, my kind of joy!

Anyway, I have a new card today. A while back my friend Alyce sent me this stamp along with her amazing card. I just gotten round to using it now as this card is inspired by the movie Epic. Have you seen it? It’s so brilliant and imaginative!

Saturday Inspirations: Joy Fold Card

Hello and happy Saturday again, crafters! I have a new card and video as always :D This one is a simple fun fold card that you can make to use up your scraps or to break away for your usual one fold cardmaking habit. It’s a Joy Fold card which is almost a combination of gate fold card and matchbook card hehe.

Odd Card Swap Reveal

Oh goodness, I have been waiting for a while to show you this card! Indonesian postal service is so slow and unreliable that my partner just received my swap card a few days ago! I’m relieved though… I wouldn’t want it to be lost in the mail. Anyhow… Here’s the card I made for my swap partner, Charmayne.

Hi There!

It’s Monday and it’s a great day today! Apart from being a little under the weather, I am raring to go with a new card. My friend Mel just stopped by and we had loads of fun chit-chating the afternoon away. So anyway, here’s a new card I made for my DT post over at The Rubber Buggy.

Saturday Inspirations New Post!

Hello all! Yes, in my neck of the woods, it’s Sunday.. But I just got home from my brother’s place so I just posted this now and I was in a hurry yesterday.

You know when it comes to tweens and teens, presents can be a bit tricky. My solution is to give them money, especially for their birthdays. Now rather than just giving them money in an envelope, I decided to pretty up the money holder!

Thank You, Gurl!

I Mix You

Oh, how I miss blogging and crafting again! Being absent for a couple of weeks make me wanna get back to crafting and once I got my hands on my supplies again, my creative juices start flowing again. So exciting!

Anyway, here is a new card I made for The Rubber Buggy DT post. This is loosely inspired by one of my fave movies, Julie & Julia.
