Thinking of You

1 comment
Hello Friends!    

RIP Masaru Ho.

Our family is sadden by the loss of this kid. Just 34 years old who lost his life in a motorcycle accident on August 1, 2018 around 6:30 pm.

He is my cousin's youngest son who was supposed to be married in two weeks.

Funeral will take place next Saturday in Vancouver, and I was in need of a sympathy card. I hate making them as they are depressing so decided to brighten it up a little.

I used the Painted Harvest stamp set for the very first time and it was sitting on the shelf collecting dust.

Because I hate making them, I said to myself to make multiples to have on hand so that I don't have to think about them. For the sentiment I used the Rooted in Nature set.

(1) 5-1/2" x 11" Very Vanilla cs, score at 4-1/4"
(1) 3-3/4" x 5" Very Vanilla cs
(1) 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" Basic Black cs
Remnant piece of Very Vanilla, So Saffron, Basic Black cs

Granny Apple Green ink
Lemon Lime Twist ink
Early Espresso ink
Pineapple Punch ink
So Saffron ink
Daffodil Delight ink

Edited: August 8, 2018 - Here is the video tutorial here to create multiple cards.

Gift Card with Hand Delivered

Hello Friends!    

Getting back into routine again. If you haven't read the last post, I went back full-time work and threw me off schedule. Hoping to get back blogging again.

Christmas is rolling around the corner, and it time to start creating Christmas stuff for craft fairs or just to have on hand.

This post is making gift card holders.

I started off with ...

(1) 3-1/2" x 11" Old Olive cs, score at 1-1/2" and 5-1/2". Valley fold at the 5-1/2", and mountain fold at the 1-1/2".

(1) 3-1/2" x 4" Designer Paper
(1) 2-1/2" x 4-3/4" Whisper White remnant
(1) 2-1/4" x 3-1/2" Basic Black remnant

Mini Album in a Case

Hello Friends!         
With my deepest sadness, it is time to say goodbye to the Creative Circle Design Team. After 4 years creating this group, I am returning to work on a full-time basis. Work has made an offer which I couldn't refuse. Although it is minimal amount, the long range forecast outweighs for retirement in the next 5-10 years.

This is the final debut of the Creative Circle Design Team, and we present to you a Mini Album in a Case.

There are over 50+ pictures in this case, and it shuts tight as you see in this picture below. The mini album is designed to fit in Stampin' Up! Full Wide cases.
I created this mini album using the Best Route Designer Series Paper (146897), together with Best Route Cardstock Pack (146898). I am waiting for the remaining materials to come so that I can finish this up for my sister. 

It has a lot of interactive pages, and pockets to add your all your tickets and more pictures.
I want to show it all, so I created a Trailer Showcase.

I am finishing the tutorial, and it will be ready next week. Details will follow. Read on before heading to the team's creation.

All the Good Things

No comments
Hello Friends!    

I love making oriental cards whenever I have a chance, and this stamp set called All the Good Things. This is definitely a keeper.

When I first saw this set, I wasn't sure what the meaning of distINKtive is. The meaning on google is ...

characteristic of one person or thing, and so serving to distinguish it from others.
There are so many possiblities with Distinktive! You can:
(1) stamp with one color
(2) stamp and colour in the image or
(3) layer ink on the stamp with a sponge dauber

This is sure a distINKtive design. Instead of having the distINKtive design, I wanted to give this set some color.

If you missed the FB Live, here is the edited version.


(1) 4-1/4" x 11" Whisper White Thick cs
(1) 2-3/8" x 3-3/8" Basic Black remnants cs
(1) 2-5/8" x 3-5/8" Poppy Parade remnants cs

Stampin' Blends: Light Cherry Cobbler and Dark Calypso Coral, Color Lifter
