Glee - ful / less

A post from an episode Jason watched.
He said it best depicts his "feelings" about our current entertainment arrangements ~ me and my girly shows first, him and his boy shows only on his days off

I make him watch ~
Glee (he puts on his headphones when Lea Michelle comes on)
Desperate Housewives
Jersey Shore
Gossip Girl
Project Runway
Greys Anatomy
(at some point) The City and The Hills

If not for the rude comments he make ("who writes this sh*t?""dumb*ass""ugghh... girls..."), none of these will be half as entertaining.

Scrapzville Mini Album

Butterfly mini album for Ebony, my partner for Felicia's April mini album swap.
I used Webster's Pages Lullaby and Lane paper pack, grunge board elements and lots of Prima bling. Lots of space for pictures and journalling. Metallic paint dabbers are brilliant I'm sure I'll be getting more.
I was such in a rush to finish and post it by the deadline I'd forgotten to film the album!
Hope Ebony likes it and more hoping it gets to her safely.

Video Demo (lition)

How I've missed crafting!!

This is what y'all get when I have had no proper days off in 2 weeks - 2 blog posts, 2 videos, 1 mini, 2 tags and a video demo! :) It's like being on diet and finally I get to eat a bucket of KFC.

I'm still new to YouTube and still don't know much about my camera to get a good quality clip. No partners assigned for the tag swap yet but thought I'd get ahead before real life gets in the way. Since the sun is up by 5am nowadays, I started experimenting on tags and came up with what I'd like to do for the April swap. Not only did I complete 4 tags (I will add more once I know how many partners I have), I was able to film myself TWICE making them - all in one day.

The finished one (more like the most decent!) is ok but I think I'd go visit my camera's manual to find out why my videos are coming out quite grainy. Also I need to find a better way of positioning the tripod.

For those YouTube veterans, have you got any tips? x

Regency Stills and Tag

I made the tag using a stamp and some charms I picked up from the Ally Pally last weekend.

Regency Mini Album

At last.... a new post!

I have been so swamped with work at one point I was working 11 days straight. My brain was fried after the 8th day, I was at work in body but not in spirit. ;)

Finally after a long time I get to share a new project with my scrappy friends.

Here's a mini album I did for my bf's mum's 60th. I finished a few days before her actual birthday so had to wait until she opened her presents on the big day. :)

I resisted the urge to pile up the pages so there's enough room for her photos. The pages were made from ordinary cardboard and covered with Papermania's Regency paper collection. I enjoyed distressing this little piece of fabric leftover from a previous project. Of course, my project will not be complete without Prima flowers and bling. :)

Kimono Tag

I recently found out that my tag never made it to one of my March tag swap partner. As much as it is sad because I can't bear the thought of someone cutting open other people's mail, I thought I'd make her another one to complete her collection.

I embossed French script stamp (can't you tell it's my fave?) on the tag, distressed in Frayed Burlap, stamped the images, coloured her dress in Aged Mahogany (dabbed in with a felt foam), gave her cute pearl earrings, flowers, fibers, a bit of Prima flourish pearls and a metal corner.

Isn't she cute?
