Week 19: Happy Moments

My recent layouts are mostly about my weekly pregnancy pictures. I have been procrastinating on making a mini album to document my pregnancy journey for weeks. Maybe I shall start when I get my Silhouette Cameo back. Oh back to my pregnancy, I am currently on my week 22. Baby is about 11.38 inches long and 1.10 pounds (the size of a mango) according to I will definitely find out the more accurate weight during my Saturday antenatal check-up. My doctor mentioned I gotta put on approx 16kg of weight throughout my pregnancy and I have only put on approx 2kg (lost 2.5kg gained 4.5kg) since I got pregnant. *blessed* I can still fit into my old skinny jeans, mind you, it's US size 2 jeans! 

Back to scrapbooking, it's been a while since I scrap any B&W photos. Love how the B&W would match with any cardstocks or patterned papers perfectly. I stick to mainly turquoise, yellow & red for this layout. And this is just the 2nd layout I made using Studio Calico November kit + add-on. My recent layouts are all about messy stitches with my horrible sewing skill and messy layerings. These layouts come up pretty quirky because I don't need to use a paper trimmer and it is always easier to stitch a crooked line than the straight ones. >_<

I love badges. Badges are the new black in scrapbooking world. I was just using normal stapler on my layout. Been resisting myself getting the Tim Holtz tiny attacher. Should I should I not? =)

Just keep layering the embellies from the kit. <3 the Dear Lizzy 5th & Frolic soft pastel color here. 

Trying to stitch through the glitter alpha but the sewing needles broke twice =( Any ideas? I will try with thicker needles and thread when I get hold of those stuff. I wonder how others stitch through their chipboard Thickers and albums pages? 

Thanks for looking! I hope everybody has fun crafting for christmas goodies and decor. XoXo.


  1. i thought you bought the attacher, omg..

  2. dun use sewing needles. use piercer to pierce thru first before sew. makes ur job easier. n congrats on ur pregnancy. :)

    1. huh? need to hand stitch? i see some scrapper sew their chipboard alphas using sewing machine? Thanks a bunch for your advice!
