Love. Smitten with you

Lately, as I scroll through my photo album in my iPhone, all I see are photos of my baby boy... I have neglected taking pictures of a lot of little daily stuffs (and my darling cat, Penny) and I probably should remind myself to take more pictures of 'insignificant' daily happenings too, you know.. for Project Life? haha.

Here's another layout I made using photos from Persnickety Prints. I love their 3x4 polaroid prints.

He makes me very exasperated at times but when he smiles, he melts my heart once again. I guess that's a baby's special ability, right?

I handstitched all the stitchings on this layout as my sewing machine is giving me some issues and I am lazy to fix it...

Watercolor fun

I am going to share another layout that I made using the photos that I ordered from Persnickety Prints. Watercolor is a trend that I've been seeing on layouts lately, so I attempted to create a layout with it too. 

I used my waterbrush to pick up some watercolor from the palette (I chose pink) and just brushed it on my bazzill cardstock. I used a hairdryer to dry the paper cos I can't wait for it to dry. My scrapping time is very limited now that I have a newborn. The paper curled a little but it's ok. Just try to blow-dry it from both front and back and that should straighten it out a little.

Here's my finished layout. 

This is not my usual style but I kinda like that it looks dreamy with the vellum and white on white elements. I was inspired by Wilna Furstenburg while creating this layout :)

Project Life - Week 10 part 2

As I mentioned in my previous post, I have a lot of photos taken during Week 10 of this year :) Hence, I have 4 pages worth to document instead of the usual 2 (although, I never really cared that it has to be a 2-page spread. It can be 1-page to as many as you like. It's your Project Life)

This was the week we went to Santa Monica Pier and also to the Farmer's Market at The Grove.

The weather was beautiful although the wind can be rather strong and chilly. Looking back at these pictures made me miss my mum again... 

On a brighter note, do remember to use my code 'Evelin20' when you check out at Paper Issues' store to get 20% off! I just bought a whole lot :D Will blog about it soon and oh, shipping was super duper fast!

Project Life - Week 10 part 1

It's been a while since I indulged myself in some 'me-time' a.k.a crafting time :) I know I am way behind on Project Life but oh well, I will just complete one week at a time and see how it goes. Some weeks, I actually do have more photos to document and some weeks, less...

I have a lot of photos for Week 10. I guess partly because my mum was here and we were out and about town :)

I have embellished the pages but have yet to journal in them yet. The same is happening to my Week 11... haha. Am scrapbooking some layouts at the moment. Will share some sneaks soon.

In the meantime, do check out Paper Issues' blog. I am posting there today!
