Your Smile Melts My Heart

I almost.... almost fail to complete this week case. Almost give up to let the creativity lead the page. But I'm glad I just continue and complete this page. One thing for sure, I want my girls to read me..my story and my heart. The design and colors are just a fun thing to do.

Take a sneak peek before full layout.....
Paper cutting deer....faux stitched. Melting heart attempt = craft glue + glitter + acrylic

Hidden journaling inside the vellum pocket. Little birdy admiring how happy we are.

Spot the altered alphabet?
Here is the full layout. Notice behind the vellum? It was suppose to be original design. But I mess up and overlap with vellum and working on top of it.

Thanks for visiting.....I hope you enjoy your stay. xoxo

Case 45 : My passion

I was going overboard when creating this week case,till the page finish I realised the color is no longer as above.Silly me....what am I thinking. But I'm happy with this week page. My voice is inside the journaling. I used inspiration word : comfort, family and home for my journal and inspiration for the page design.
The evidence :- silver metal on the door knob, lamp, vintage text. 
Here's the page :-
 You might no see here clearly, but I'm running out of "a" so I combine "o" and "i" to make "a" for word passion.
Open up my girl photo and you will see another 3 photos of my passion.....books, crafts and my studio.Love this idea for hiding more photos to add some fun and interactive layout.

 Lately, I'm falling in love with scroll. Scattered scrolls on the floor to represent how I love to write a list. (yes I have a lot of lists....)

The door inspired by Benefits catalog, in fact I cut out the words Art Lovers Welcome from their page.

My journal tucked behind the photo. I labelled it ....

I love love love my first attempt to create something different from what I did. Of course it took a lot of time but I'm happy with it. Get out of norm.

Thanks for visiting. Thank you very much! Keep creating .......

Bragging time....

  • I never did this before. Somehow I need to give a pat on my back.
  • Without further ado....bragging time ( I never did this before, I told you earlier right?...so please please bear with me....)

    Good times


    • I'm happy so happy for another productive weekend. Before I organize the whole things inside my studio, I manage to finish one layout. It took me for a while to figure out the whole page, the photo is a long time due to scrap (year 2010) yike!
    • If you have instagram....feel free to check me out @idakarimm 
    • Thanks to Scrap Friends (All about scrapbooking) for a wonderful color challenge. Here is their direct link to the post challenge.
    This is my interpretation from above colours. 

    More close up 
     More layering here.
     Aren't yellow gingham bird is too cute? Love it so much.... I think more of this birdie will be featured in my next layout.

    I used all my paper scrap for this page except for the background. It's time to finish the scrap stash before cutting a new one.
    This layout also base from sketch challenge in Scrapbookchallenge
    Thank you for dropping by. Have a nice day!

    CSI : Case File 03

    • I'm stuck with this case. It took me a few days before I manage to solve it.
    • It all started when I just color the scheme using pencil color into my memo pad. From there I just let the color sit and one night I remember I took a picture of Irees ,with pink dress and flowery hat. As usual I just add wording into the photo. I love wording photo   
    • Next I just grab my pattern paper according color scheme and start jotting down what the CSI want for this case (refer above evidence & testimony)
    • While I'm working with the page (with Twilight OST background music – shh this is secret of my mojo) I try to cross one by one the evidence & testimony.
    • Though I can’t complete all the evidence & testimony but I think I get it close….
    • Without further ado, here is my take. A story about my little one ‘waiting with pleasure’, with a pack of Twisties, she running around the hotel lobby while waiting for daddy to check out. I just try to create scene to mimic her imagination as little kid.

    • I feel like watching UP
    If you want more, here are some details :-
    Circles element (balloons) + heart +   splatter of white acrylic + hand drawn
    How about some window treatment with an owl + heart = I just love how these elements blend together.
    The tag = leftover circles from my office punch + doily print (I just trace the edge) + stamp + fussy cutting pp
    Combination of rub on + hand drawn into gold metallic element. Just because I’m running out of rub on.
    Want to keep a secret ? Try out this hidden tips by my Miss Doily :D
    For this page I didn’t want to hide much…it more like peek a boo……
    csi3c csi3d
    More circles element (brads + circles colored with copic )
    Thanks for looking and thanks to CSI for another wonderful challenge.
