Productive July

Hello Hello! I am still scrapping and smash*ing but I am very lazy to upload my layouts to the blog. It's Great Singapore Sales in Singapore right now but I haven't been shopping much, be it clothes / books / scrapbooking supplies. I have been working very very hard  & party-ing real hard too!

Firstly... I would like to thank Paper Crafter's Library for featuring my SMASH* book post. And thanks Madey for highlighting the blog post to me ^-^

I received my Studio Calico June Kit - So Cal  approximately 3 weeks back but I barely have time to play with it. And I wanted the speech bubbles stamp from Add-on 4 - Venice Beach so badly but I missed it twice during the pre-sales for subscribers and also on the actual launch. It was sold out less than a minute after it was launched! Can you believe that??? So I have learn my lesson and for July kit, I switch on 2 computers to click the 'add to cart' button on the pre-sales day to make sure I got all the add-ons that I want! But still... I missed out on another add-on kit in July too >_<

These are the Main kit & add on that I got in June... And make a wild guess.... How many layouts have I created out of 'em?

June Main Kit - So Cal

Add-on 3 - Santa Monica

I created two 12x12 LOs, four 8.5x11 LOs, 1 mini album + 1 mini 5.5x5.5 layout. I used mainly the Studio Calico June Kit, Paper Smooches stamp, Stamps from SC Summer School Stamp & some pretty October Afternoon 9-to-5 papers. I am now a happy scrappers who have at least 2 more LOs to complete in order to use up my June kit while waiting for my July kit.

1) Singapore River Cruise 
This layout is made using the scraps that I have left after making a few layout from June Kit. I tend to look for Orange, green and blue scraps to match with the photos. I am loving the soft / pastel color combination here. Too lazy to set up the sewing machine so I drew the white stitching line instead. Loving the pics that I taken when my parents came to Singapore to visit me a week ago. <3

Loving the Paper Smooches stamp image that I color with color pencils and stickles!

I draw a few white lines using Uniball White Pen to make the glitter foam alpha poped out. 

2) Stamping Queen - A layout dedicated for my scrappy friend - Cheryl Leong
This layout is created by following Studio Calico Sunday Sketch 8/7/2012. And this is my first time using sewing machine on my layout. Love the subtle texture that the stitching added to the project. It took me quite a while threading my sewing machine though. 

Love love the BIG impact of the starburst on the bottom of this sketch. I flipped the sketch to the right instead.

I added a lil' crown to the picture of the stamping queen >_<

First time trying to emboss on vellum too! you could see that I am crazy over vellums by now! <3 the dreamy (yet subtle) effect of the vellum.

Super cute starburst / sunburst layout. 

 3) Canopy
This LO is scrap lifted from a card that I saw from Studio Calico Summer School Stamp. I just received my Hero Arts mid tone ink and have been stamping Hello on a piece of white pages.  So I just simply arrange the Hello word bubble and that's how quickly I completed this layout. Misted Green & yellow here as the instax were taken during our breakfast outing at Bishan Park. 

Colored the arrow stamps randomly with distress marker. I am now thinking of getting a complete set of distress markers!

 4) J & S
I am loving the 8.5 x 11 scrapbook pages. I could complete the smaller scrapbook pages with lesser time and loving the compact size of these pages. The MME paper is very very pretty on its own so I just added some chipboard stickers (banner) + some stamped clouds + stamped bicycle and ta-dah! The colorful clouds are my fave in this layout!

The cute book clip is from Basic Grey and I gotta confess. The black ink splatter is actually stamped using Swiss Girl Design stamp. Same effect as normal splatter the black mist but minus the mess!

5) Bintan
This pattern paper is my fave paper in the June kit. It took me quite a while to decide on which photos to go with it. And this is my very very first time using my new baby Cameo to cut out the silhouette title here. Love it!

Add stickles to pop up the cute birdie! I have a few pictures from this Bintan trip to be scrapped. Stay tuned!

I have a layout, a mini album & a card that I made for my girlies at work. Will share those projects with you in a day or two. Thanks for dropping by =)
