Blog Hop⎪Mommy's Day

Hello beautiful people! This is the second time I am joining another bloghop and a little giveaway here!

A few of my scrappy friends in Singapore thought it would be fun to do a mini bloghop together to get to know even more scrappers and bloggers. And for me, being a new mom this year I just want to have lots of crafty fun to celebrate my very first Mother's Day! So of course, I am definitely in on this great idea!

And since Mother's Day is drawing near, we thought we would have a Mom's Day theme for our first mini bloghop together. Sharing with you a layout of me and my mum, which is heavily inspired by my mum's hobby - sewing and quilting. I would love to wish all the mothers (including myself) Happy Mother's Day!

The title of the layout is inspired by this cute advert by Kikki.K


Here's my layout for my beloved mom. I added lots of machine-stitching in this layout to create the quilting feeling. The flowery prints in Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm collection is just perfect for the title! I love this pic of me and my mum which was taken during my wedding. Do you think I do look a lot like my mum? 

'Love you more'  & 'Lucky me' are just the perfect sentiments for the layout.


Playing around with different Thickers to create the long title. I have used 5 types of Thickers here.


The upside-down 'i' in the word 'pick' is a happy accident.


My love for sequins again.... These sequins are from my mum's stash. 

In conjunction with this hop, I am also throwing in a mini giveaway here.


Various embellishments (buttons, die cuts, sequins, chipboards and paper clips) from Crate Paper Maggie Holmes, Smash, Teresa Collins and October Afternoon.

To have a chance at winning this little stash of goodies, do the following, each option gives you an additional chance in the final prize draw: (Note: International bloggers are welcomed too!)

  15. Yes you do look like your mum ...both gorgeous women :) your layout is as always stunning. Here in the UK we have a different date for Mother's Day, but sadly I didn't celebrate, I lost my mum just under 2 years ago now, but I still realise how lucky I was to have had her in my life ... Celebrate and make everyday Mother's Day xxx
