Cutesy Overloads

Edited (2 Feb 2012): I came across this inspiring Thursday challenge from Scraptastic Club. The challenge is to find that thing that you struggle with, be it cards, 8.5x11 layouts, tags, using certain items, such as trims, where ever your struggle lays, and confront it head on! Make that layout, tag, etc. When I was browsing my own layout, I found that i always struggle with making full use of my scraps & some loud pattern papers. I also love to collect those adorable Washi tapes but I have always struggled to use them in my lo. And the washi tape flags are one of my have in this lo. Thus I decided to enter this inspiring challenge using this layout.

I am a sucker to scrapbooking tools and am in the midst of collecting more (& more) punches, stamps and ink pads. I have just gotten two Marvy Uchida punches as a steal from my LSS.
I got the scallop square punch & the square punch at $16 each. Trust me, these punches are gigantic! I was kinda hesitate to purchase them as I think storage might be a pain in the *ss.

Couldn't help punching papers with all the scraps the I found picture of my fostered puppy, Bubu that I printed months ago. He was dressed up as a Lady Gaga with the huge ribbon headgear, thus the title is 'Lady Bubu'. 

All the pattern papers are scraps from my previous layouts, workshops & albums. Thus not all are coordinated perfectly. The cheeky boy tab is a hidden journalling which can be pulled out. 

I wrap some satay sticks with washi tape to make some cute flags.

I wrap some twine around the squares to mimic the look of a gift. 

I love the date stamp that i got from a book shop. Added some Maya Road Wood Bingo & MAMBI stickers. Being a dog lover, I always ended up buying puppy-motifs stickers & embellishments.

Live. Laugh. Love. Share with me which part of the lo is your favorite? I couldn't decide as I really spent   longer than usual to add those little embellishments.

Ah... that's all for this simple layout. I will not be scrapping for a week as I'm going back to hometown scissors-less & paper-less. Guess I will just take loads of pictures of my dogs & family so that i would have more pictures to be scrapped.


  1. Love your layout! I'm def going to do a scraplift of this soon! :)
