Party Like A Boss–Toadstool Gorjuss Girl

Good morning! Aaaaggghhh, it’s one of those days again… Traveling week! I am going to travel to 2 cities this week for work. I have never been to one, which is Balikpapan but the other one is one of my faves, Surabaya. I am actually excited about going to Surabaya, since the food there is heavenly plus one of my fave scrapbook stores main store is located there. I hope I can spare some time to shop in Surabaya.

Anyhoo, moving along to my card. Today I have yet another Gorjuss card. It’s a fall themed card and I love the colors!!! I just love the brown and teal here. The papers are one of my favorite digital papers from Design by Dani. I used a cluster of Prima flowers and also put some gorgeous rhinestones on the center, also from Prima. If you can see (the image is not the greatest quality, I’m sorry), the stars on the pockets and shoes as well as the buttons are colored using gold pen.

Born To Shop Card–Totes Anya

It’s FriYAY! I am so excited to meet yet another weekend! I think I look forward to the weekend because I can spend the whole day crafting. During weekdays I get so exhausted because commuting takes a lot of time and by them time I get home, all energy I’ve got left is just to watch a couple of TV shows.

I love this card. It’s on the simple side, but it’s still pretty cute. When I saw her, I immediately thought.. Ooohhh, shopping! Hehe. That big bag is something I would tote when I go shopping. I love to just tuck everything in my canvas tote bag.

You’re So Special–Gorjuss Girl The Fox

Happy Hump Day! I hope you’re all doing great. I guess it’s getting a teensy bit chilier in the Northern Hemisphere yeah? It’s still just so-so here. It’s been raining quite a bit, but still not chilly. Hehe.

I am showing you my Gorjuss card today! I have always been a huge fan of Gorjuss Girls. They are very quirky and sweet at the same time. They remind me of my best friend Kristina’s illustrations. For this card, I made the center hollow by die-cutting a circle there. Then I also hot-embossed the sentiment on a piece of vellum.

Thinking of You–Cheeky Geeky Card

Hello, hello! I have been a little bit cooped in my room the past 3 days because I have been either binge-watching TV shows or crafting. I have been a little bit sick of traveling the past month, so being at home is such a blessing. I have been productive and creating a lot of different things, but today I will show you a card I made.

Still on the back to school theme, I made this card using Cheeky Geeky. I have had her for YEARS and so I just gotten the chance to use her now. You can tell I have quite a TGF inventory and sometimes I’m just overwhelmed with all the cuteness, I feel like if I choose one the other would be jealous. Hahaha.

Be Yourself Card

I’m not ready for fall yet (well partly because here we don’t get fall/autumn season, just dry and rainy season), so I am making a fall-ish card with a non-fall colors.

I just love pairing this beautiful image from Some Odd Girl with this aqua and blue floral patterns. So pretty, I can’t help but make it simple to showcase both the stamped image and papers. I just add that dark red flower to sort of embellish the card a bit.

BFF Card–Anya Nerds Out

There are a few images that I have a soft spot on, cupcakes, mermaid/beach and geeky. This one from The Greeting Farm is  one of my faves. She’s so tall and cool, it’s so easy to color and turn her into a card.

I made a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch square card and decorated it with silver glitter paper and star bling stickers. I think it turned out so cute. Since we don’t really celebrate back to school here, I made it a bit generic. I used a BFF sentiment and stamped it with a magenta/hot fuchsia  ink.

XoXo, You’re The Apple of My Eye Card

Hello, hello everyone! It’s me posting right before heading to Malaysia for a quick business meeting. I am so excited and nervous at the same time. Excited because we are all given a villa with private pool (yes, one villa per person!), but also nervous since I have to present in front of hundreds of people. Hopefully it’ll be fine.

Today I want to show you a rather simple card. Still in the back to school mood, I made this fresh card using CC Designs’ Olivia’s Apple. I love the colors here and how cute she looks. I used corrugated paper here to mat that adorable patterned paper. I love how it looks like!

Back To School Anya

Hello everyone! It’s been crazy few months here for me, but I am finally settling down with the new changes in my life and loving it. I had a work change (well, position, to be exact) and also my daily routines has been changing since I travel quite a lot (so far this year I’ve taken almost 30 flights!). I still craft though, that goes in to my schedule here and there. Photographing my works is the hardest chore as it takes a lot of time and effort, and truth be told, I’d rather be crafting hahaha.

Anyways, since I feel like being back to school after a long break, here’s a card to celebrate that. I am slo going to enter this to The Greeting Farm’s Farm Fresh Challenge. I love the image and every single one of the Super Secret Stamp images, but the skull kind of put me off. I love making cute images and the skull makes it kind of edgy a bit haha. So I decided to cover it up with a clear bling sticker. What do you think?

Awning Card with Mon Amie Anya

Hey all! Happy Monday! It’s so great to be back in Jakarta and my office today. It’s not a laid back day but getting back to the routine feels great. I am also excited to post my August card for Quick Creations GDT post.

I am using one of the most adorable images from The Greeting Farm called Mon Amie Anya. I made her as if she’s looking into a pastry shop wanting to buy some dessert. I was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest and then I kind of figure out how to make it. Do you like it?

Let The Sea Set You Free

Hi everyone! I just got back from Singapore for work and also shopped for a bit. It was pretty tiring as I was a bit under the weather, but I always love going there. It’s so organized and safe. But for now I feel sooo blessed to be back home as I am back to crafting and my supplies hehe.

Today I want to show you a shaker card with La La Land Crafts. I haven’t made one in years and now I think I might be hooked again. This is for my Quick Creations GDT post. Have you checked out the store? If not, RUN! Because it’s my fave store that carries all my fave brands!

Paper Doll Marci–Princess

Hello, hello! It’s almost the end of June and I feel like time is flying by so fast. I can’t believe it’s already been half a year, when it only feels like yesterday that I went on my Winter holiday in Europe. I am now imagining summer is Europe. I think I only go there mostly during Spring or Winter since it’s low season ;) I think it would be so nice, don’t you think?

By the way, I am here to show you my recent card for Quick Creations. I am in love with this stamp. It’s simple and gorgeous!

Quick Creations GDT–Sunny Dee and Sunflower

Greetings from sunny Bali!  I am on the island again for a quick business trip and the weather is so gorgeous! It’s almost  summer now and the sky is so blue and clear. I love it!

For today’s card, I am going a little bit vintage. It’s rare for me to color this style of stamp but I love the challenge. It gives me fresh ideas :)

Smile!

Hey everyone! Back again here with another card for my GDT spot over at Quick Creations. If last week I told you that I was off to Makassar, well today I am off to Japan! Again it is for work purposes, but I am blessed to finally be able to travel there. I don’t have many leaves left, so I am just going to stay there for 4 days.

Anyway, yes, back to my card. I made this adorable and funky looking card using a stamp from Saturated Canary called Stinker. You know she actually looked kind of kawaii!

Hiya! It’s me again! Today I am off to Makassar. Such an exotic place in the east of Indonesia. Not for leisure though, yep you’ve guessed it… For work! I am currently under the weather but I hope the sun and good food there would replenish my strength. I am sooo looking forward to the weekend when I can create again before I leave to Japan next week :)

Anyway, here’s a new post for Quick Creations’ GDT spot. I thought this image was so cute that it made me want to make a CAS card. Do you like?

Cupcakes and Kisses

Hello and happy Monday to you! It’s been really hot thesedays in Indonesia and right now I am in sunny Bali for a week! Unfortunately for work, so no lounging about or sunbathing during the day for me hehe. I still enjoy Bali after hours, it’s one of my fave places in the world.

Anyway, I am here with a new card that I absolutely adore. You know me and cupcakes right? I just can’t get enough of images with cupcakes on it. This is a rather simple card that I made. But so yummy to look at :D

Fuse Shaker Card

Hello everyone! I have been such a religious YouTube watcher these days, and one of the things I love watching is the new shaker card trend. It drove me to buy the ever popular Fuse tool from We R Memory Keepers. I am so in love with this tool! It makes making shaker card quick and easy.

SBC_ac-662567

One of the ways of making a shaker card is to put the shaker confettis in a clear pouch (such as an ID pouch or photo protector pouch) and seal the edge with the Fuse tool. I did that and I quite love the result. Here I have two of the shaker cards I made with Fuse tool and cheap ID card pouch.

Speaking of cold, here’s a new boxfrom me for my Quick Creations GDT post using Fuzzy Boots Birgitta. Isn’t she cute?!?!?! This is a 4x4 pizza box made from corrugated paper :) I then brushed some pearl paint to make it look like it’s a bit shabby :D Love love looovvee the result!

A Happy Hello Letter For You, Valentine!

Hi everyone! It’s D-2 until my departure to Amsterdam for my annual corporate meeting. I will be there for 4 days and then I will go and stroll around Europe for a bit. I’m quite excited but definitely terrified too. I HATE the cold, I seriously do. I wear a blanket athe office daily, you know! Because the air conditioner is just soooo cold! But I made a pact to myself to push myself anytime and and way I can when I am still able-bodied. So yeah, I’m gonna brave the winter and enjoy Copenhagen and Stockholm ;)

Anyway, still on Valentine’s Day card mood, here’s a new one I created. It’s girly and fun I love it. Naturally Valentine’s Day is my fave holiday because the colors are so pretty during that month.

You’re So Special Valentine’s Day Card

Hey everyone! I am back with another card. It’s 1 month to go ‘til it’s Valentine’s Day. So I have started making mine. This year a bunch of friends are hosting a card swap (and, surprise, surprise.. They’re all guys! haha) so I’m coloring and making Valentine’s Day cards pretty early.

This card uses unusual Valentine’s Day colors, but I think it came out pretty cute ;)

Christmas in January!

Hi everyone!

I hope you all had a great New Year! I just had a laid back barbecue dinner and movie with my family, it was a yearly event and we always have so much fun. We had fireworks and such a nice weather (usually it rains!).

I had not-so-nice month though last month... My computer decided to die on me. I think my HDD is the problem since it's been with me for almost 7 years. The shops are all closed during the holidays and I had to wait for 3 weeks to get it fixed! It's still on the works but it might be back in my arms as early as tomorrow. YAY!

Anyway, I have a new card for my Quick Creations DT post. It's January but it's not too early to make a batch of Christmas cards right? Especially if you're like me, you had to make at least 40 cards just for my family and close friends! Here's one that's Christmas-inspired.
