  1. A Bookmark And A Card

    September 19, 2010 by admin

    Rummaging through the old stash of scrapbooking stuffs I have for so many years, I decided to make this bookmark to give to a friend.

    I don’t have many choice of cardstock. It wouldn’t be nice to have a flimsy, soft bookmark. The only cardstock I have which is good enough to be turned to a bookmark is the 6×6 pad from Making Memories Gracen. I used the Flower and Red cardstock for this bookmark.

    Since I don’t have a clear stamp with sentiment that is suitable, I decided to use one of the stickers from 7Gypsies line.


    Using Making Memories Vintage Hip Trims – Gracen, Making Memories Vintage Hip 6×6 Pad Gracen -cardstock pattern Red and Flower, brad eyelet, fiber, 7 Gypsies 97% Complete Journal Stickers – Unique, Dew Drop VersaMagic Chalk Ink in Red Brick

    The thank you card below was made for a crafter friend who has been so kind to me. She borrowed a tatting book from the National Library (even renewed it for another 3 weeks) and posted it to me so that I could learn how to tat. Since I needed to post the book back to her, I made this card to say how thankful I am for her good deed.


    The card was made by folding the 6×6 cardstock in Stripe pattern in half. I stamped the sentiment using the newly bought clear stamp by Basic Grey. I used the maroon ric rac from Making Memories Vintage Hip Trims – Gracen as embellishment. I also put two crystals from Prima. Somehow I feel that their adhesive is not strong enough, it keeps on sticking on the plastic packaging instead on the back of the gemstones when I take out the pearl/crystal to use…very annoying for me.

    The paper where I stamped the sentiment is from My Mind’s Eye Wild Asparagus line. I am yet to use most of the patterned papers in my stash even though I’ve bought them since 2006..huhu!

    I hope I will be able to make more cards and bookmarks in the future so that I could buy new collection of papers without feeling too guilty for not using them..haha!

  2. Crochet Flower On Felt Hair Clip

    September 12, 2010 by admin

    All these 3 hair clips were no longer in my possession. I gave them away to family and friend as Hari Raya gift.

    I made them a few weeks ago in the attempt to try all sort of patterns and different type of thread and yarn I bought earlier.


    The pink yarn was bought in Subang Parade for about RM30 per skein. Expensive, huh? If only I live somewhere where yarns are available in massive choices and not that expensive. It would be nicer if I could buy a few different tones of pink yarns. I could crochet the second and third layer of the flower with different shades of pink instead of one tone.

    I tried using pink felt as the hair clip cover. The result looks monotonous since the cover is the same tone as the flower..huhu!


    Then I found a pattern for butterfly. This time I made the hair clip cover in black felt so that whoever wears this will look as if she has a big butterfly fluttering on her hair since the black felt will blend in with her black hair.

    However I sew the butterfly wrongly. The antenna of the butterfly should be facing downward so that when you put the clip on your hair, the butterfly will be facing up. Lesson learned!


    For this flower pattern, I used embroidery thread like the one people use for cross stitch. It was quite hard to crochet since the thread is very fine compared to the usual yarn I use for crochet. I will not be using those kind of floss to make crochet flower anytime soon..heh!

  3. Crochet Flower With Button

    August 18, 2010 by admin

    I managed to get buttons when I went to Daiso at The Curve last 2 weeks.

    I know I could get more varieties for buttons if I go to sewing materials shop but it would mean that I have to go to KL for such purpose..huhu! The nearest will be in Taipan USJ but then it will be a hassle to find parking spot.

    So here is the result after I sew the buttons on the crochet flowers.


    I am not sure what I want to do with these flowers. The initial plan is to make bookmark or tag and embellish it with the flower but at the moment I don’t have plain cardstocks to do so. It will take some time for me to sort out my collection of patterned papers of cardstock quality that is suitable with those flowers.

  4. The Crochet Rose

    August 7, 2010 by admin

    I managed to try crocheting roses..yeay! Have been experimenting with all the yarns I have, some are OK, some could be worse..haha! But still it does look like a rose. If only those people who share the instructions online would be generous to mention what type and brand of yarns they used…but even then I am not sure if I can get those brands in Malaysia.

    BTW, the red one was crocheted using DMC Babylon No.10 (which was bought earlier for tatting) and it was tedious as it is almost like crocheting using thread instead of the bulky yarn.


    This one is crocheted using the most expensive yarn I have in my possession. Went to the shop in Subang Parade and the lady there suggested me to buy this ball of yarn, which costs me RM30. But it is good for crochet as the yarn doesn’t turn furry.


    Oh, since I replenished some embellishment for my scrapbooking and card making, I decided to make use of the Prima Crystals and Pearls just for decoration purpose.


    If I were to use the crochet rose later on bags, headband or sun hat, I might have to sew round pearl in the centre of the rose instead of using the self adhesive pearl. But that would be another project to tackle. For now I still need to practise all the basic stitches I learn like double crochet, treble crochet, slip knot etc.

  5. Papier Blog Contest

    July 15, 2010 by admin

    Finally, I managed to submit the layout and matching card for Papier Blog Contest.

    It doesn’t do justice to the scrapbook layout by posting a small picture on this blog, (you can’t see the details clearly – the sentiment, the rub on, embellishment etc) but alas, what can I do..should find another blog template with wider space for entry.

    I used most of the scrapbook stash I bought pre-baby years, which was like 3-4 years ago. I felt so ancient for using those vintage products – self adhesive felt, patterned paper Scarlet Letter by Basic Grey, K&Co rub on, stickers by 7 Gypsies..haha! The only new things I used for this contest (which were bought recently) are the green brads and self adhesive pearls.


    When I chose the picture of my son’s feet, my first thought was to write the sentiment ” A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step”. The picture was taken the first time we brought him to the beach almost a year ago. He has just learned to walk that time, how time flies as now he can run everywhere.


    But as I struggled to complete the layout, I realized that entering this contest is more like fulfilling my dream and nurturing the passion of craft I have inside. I almost gave up today since I couldn’t find the time to come out with the masterpiece.

    It’s not easy being a mother to a high-need, spirited kid. Only those in the same shoes will understand. No matter how much enthusiasm I have inside, I wouldn’t be able to realize my dream of entering this contest without the support of my husband. Both of them went out for about 2 hours and left me in the craft room to think hard and come out with this layout peacefully.


    Just as a mother would be proud and beaming in joy to see her son takes his first step, I am so proud to present you this scrapbook layout.


    For the matching card, it doesn’t take long to do it as I already have the sketch in my mind after doing the scrapbook layout.

    This card will be sent to a close friend in Japan who recently lost her beloved mother. She is doing her post graduate study there and couldn’t make it home to her mom’s funeral. I chatted with her a few weeks ago and encouraged her to be strong and do her best to complete her study.

    I believe each and everyone of us has challenges in life to overcome. A strong will is what we need to find the way out.

  6. Bunga Telur Bunga Stokin

    June 28, 2010 by admin

    Over the year, I have been asked by many interested students whether I will conduct any class for bunga stokin.


    So after going through the materials I have, I decided to teach any interested students for bunga stokin class on 17 July 2010 this type of bunga telur.


    I will also do demo on how to make kipas organza (in case anyone still interested to do that kind of bunga telur), how to tie the ribbons into bow and how to do bunga telur gantung.

    On the practical part, the students will do bunga telur on bamboo stick like in the above picture and make butterfly from stokin. I am thinking of making the butterfly into corsage instead of teaching them to do bunga dulang mini.

    Come and join the class on 17th July as it is limited to 6 students. This is the first bunga stokin class I will conduct for the year 2010.

  8. A Birthday Card

    June 17, 2010 by admin


    After almost 2 years of not doing any card, I decided to take part in a blog candy ran by Shirl Leong at her blog Craftee Guiri in conjuction with her husband birthday this coming 28th June.

    Thanks to her blog I found another blog candy ran by Scrapbooking All Sorts – which ends on June 30th. Since the requirement is to submit any latest papercraft project, I think this birthday card will do for a start.

    At first I wanted to make an easel card, but after searching through all the materials I have, I found a pack of unopened blank cards. Those white blank cards are 5 1/2 x 4 inch once folded..(which I think is quite small, as I rather love getting a bigger card)

    Anyway, once I have completed the card, I realized that I should have put eyelet brads on the happy birthday sentiment before I attach it to the background..huhu!

    Here are the recipes:

    Paper : Daisy D No.13, My Mind’s Eye Signature Suite- World of Play, Dotted Play/Ring Around The rosy, Wild Asparagus

    Stamp: Heidi Swapp Happy Birthday

    Versa Magic Chalk Ink – Midnight Black, Thatched Straw

    Brilliance Pigment Ink – Pearlescent Crimson, Coffee Bean

    Prima flowers, ribbon, clear rhinestones, Memory Book Glue Dots, Supertac Glue

  9. Callie’s Creative Corner
