On a Webster papers roll..

I'm really guilty.
Guilty of hoarding too many papers and not using them enough.
So God sent the 12 days of Christmas Crop by Webster to relieve the guilt.
In the midst of cropping non-stop and surviving on 3-hour sleep every single night,
I discovered that I've at least 4 papers of each paper from Winter Wings and Home for the Holidays collection, and all the beautiful embellishments except the trims!!
I can't tell you how sad I'm over not owning the trims as my LSS has not brought them in.

Never mind about the trims (crossing my fingers they will arrive real soon!),
I've fabulous projects to share!
They're fabulous because Webster has such amazingly talented design team members!!
Their ideas are really wonderful, I can never think of them, seriously!!

Day 3 - Hanging photo frame


I love this so much!! It's a gift to the boyfriend's family, now hanging in their living room. Warms the whole place instantly I tell you!!
And I am really in awe of Wendy's idea of soaking the paper to mould it as I like.
I've so much fun doing it but the tip is to use papers of cardstock thickness so that it doesn't tear easily. The Webster papers are just exactly the right papers to soak!

These are the details:

Day 4 - Glass frame inspired by Iris

I'm a big fan of Iris's work so I was so glad to have her hosting this lovely challenge of revamping an old photo frame glass.
This is Mr boyfriend and me, looking lovey-dovey.
It's the first time I'm using such a color combination for Christmas-inspired projects and it turned out really decent-looking!

I love it so much, do you?!

Thanks so much for all the wonderful ideas, they really help me grow tremendously as a scrapper in such a short span of time and I'm sure to have a hangover after the crop!!

Yes this is exactly what I'm feeling right now!

I was dragging myself home after a hard day's work, having just complained to the boyfriend that this must be the worst day this year till I checked my email and found out that my 'Santa's gems' altered frame has been selected as the banner of the week here!
The icing on the cake has to being chosen as the winner of the very first challenge of the 12 days of Christmas Crop!

I can't help grinning from ear to ear everytime I log into the site because I can see my beautiful cousins' smiling faces greeting me!

I'm also really grateful for all the wonderful comments received from the ever-friendly ladies at Webster!
Really love this crop to bits!

Will share this before I go off to make more stuff!
This is made for the 2nd day of the crop: Beautiful cards inspired by Anabelle O'Malley!


Luke 6:38
Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.

12 Days of Christmas!

Have you taken part in the 12 days of Christmas crop over at Webster's pages?
It's soooo fun!!
I spent the whole night working on this

and I'm in love with it!

What a wonderful Christmas gift it will be for my cute cousins!
Aren't they adorable?
I love this photo of them and this is the perfect way to scrap such a precious photo don't you think?
Have a great weekend dear friends!
I can't wait to attend church the next day to receive the food of God's word!
Goodnight and God bless! :)

Hello November!

I hope I'm not forgotten!

I've been MIA-ing for a loooong time I know!
October has been really taxing for me!
So many birthday celebrations held that they're leaving me breathless!
So many additional lessons to be arranged for my students' exams!

I've been behind schedule for many deadlines and that's the disadvantage of being self-employed.
I just lack discipline and I'm praying so much for God to give me the strength to meet deadlines that I've set for myself.
Arrgh! I'm such a lazy bum!
I've so many dreams to fulfil and yet I'm merely building castles in the air by not acting on them.
Maybe blogging about this may help make me more motivated to STOP PROCRASTINATING!

I supposed I owed someone a giveaway!
That's like more than a month late and I'm terribly sorry about it so I'm going to post another giveaway (which will not be late!) to make things right, hopefully. That will happen in a week's time because I'm going to do something really drastic!

To clear my MESSY, really MESSSSSSY study cum scrap room!
Before and after pictures of the room will definitely be revealed when the time calls for it! I am going to give out quite a great deal of stuff so watch this space!

So yeah before I forget,
here's the lucky lady who won the giveaway:
