Faceted Alphas

I love these Amy Tangerine Finders Keepers faceted alphabets to bits,  they come in a great classic font and an assortment of the yummiest pastel colours. I paired them with a single large photo and very little else so that all attention is focused on the title.


This blog will be quiet for a well as I take a break from scrapbooking and designing. Hopefully in the second quarter of 2016, after my work-related travels are completed, I'll be back. In the mean time, I wish everyone a very happy new year.

The One With the Pineapple

I used to have the hardest time scrapping with embellishments of very specific objects, things like caravans, giraffes, flamingos and, yes, pineapples. I'd rack my brain for photos or stories that have to do with camping in the wilderness (not much of that in urban Singapore) or going to zoo, figuring it'll otherwise be strange to incorporate such specific embellishments.


Now I've well and truly gotten over that hang-up. I will happily use a pineapple crown as a triangle shape and an inverted ampersand as a 'hanger' for a sprig of lemon on a page that has absolutely nothing to do with fruits or gardening. As long as they work in terms of colour, size and shape I'm game to include them in my project.

Gold & Black

Wishing everyone who celebrates a very Merry Christmas. I'll be getting ready for our party on the 25th and have just enough time to share a layout created with this month's Citrus Twist kit. It's all about those extra-large alphas from Crate Paper's Shine collection. I used two of them in the original gilt and the other two spray painted matt black, giving a nice variation to the title.

A Crush On Pearls

There's a mixed media supply item from Ranger that's I'm crazy about. It's Perfect Pearls. I love how easy it is to fashion little accents on my pages with it. For example the two-toned stars on this  Citrus Twist layout created using Onyx Pearl to fill in the centers of gold puffy stars that came in my kit. Since the Perfect Pearl nozzle is really fine, there's no problem working even on such small areas. It's as simple to handle as a pen or colour pencil.

Oh So Happy

Another thing I frequently do with Perfect Pearls is make pearlescent enamel dots. It's a lot more economical than buying packs of enamel dots plus I have the freedom to create dots of different sizes. The only hassle is remembering to put my layout aside for a couple of hours in order for the dots to set.

In A Corner

A non-pattern paper layout using Citrus Twist's December Main Kit. My favourite element is the photo corner that holds the title of the layout - created using a mixed of fussy-cut words and stamping.
