SOUS Die Cut Challenge: Food & Beverage

I cannot believe that Summer is almost done!!! But I cannot complain, we just have been having so much fun this Summer. July is a month full of fun for us that we had awesome cook out on the fourth of July, fantastic weather for playing outside though we had some cloudy and rainy days, road trip, camping and next week we will have VBS at our church. We are thankful for Summer!

Every single moment is worth to remember. One way of remembering our memories is scrapbooking. I have been scrapbooking since 2009 after our first baby girl was born. Now she loves seeing her baby book 🙂 I am working on our second baby girl’s book and hoping when she is bigger, she’ll love it too. Then I thought, well… I don’t have yet book about me and my husband. So, I started our first scrapbook album that record our first year memories as husband and wife. That is just the beginning 🙂

Today I would like to share with you one of the page I made for SOUS Die Cut Challenge this week.

This is one of our stories when we went to my hometown and had these local “must eat food” That was Dave’s second time visiting actually, but our first time visiting my family. Scrapping these pictures made me hungry and miss those food 😀 LOL!!!

For our album I used My Crush™ Bluebird Book and Memory Assortment from Close To My Heart. I added some of the Color-Ready Trinkets Wooden Shapes, Chocolate Woodgrain Washi Tape, Honey Triangles Washi Tape, and Silver Geometric Washi Tape.

The banner I embossed a piece of White Daisy Cardstock with Chevron Embossing Folder using my WRMK Evolution Advanced. I cut Cocoa Cardstock for the title using my Silhouette Cameo. I used this free font, Bira font worked well with die cut machine! Do you see that fork, spoon and knife? I found them at Silhouette Online Store designed by Megan Hardy. After I resized them, I cut them from a piece of Champagne Cardstock to match the color with the book page.

So, I have 6 pictures for this limited space and the solution is this awesome Memory Protectors™ Flip Flaps™ Small Assortment! They are Slide photos or other artwork into the pocket and attach the Flip Flap with its adhesive strip. 4 each of 2″ × 2″, 3″ × 3″, 3″ × 4″, and 4″ × 4″.

On this page I use only 2 of the 4″ x 4″ that holds 4 pictures and I added one more picture on the page, there I have 6 pictures on this 10″x7″ page! I added Bronze Shimmer Trim on to cover on the flip flap. I love this Flip Flaps pockets! 😀

Hope to see your project link up with us at SOUS Die Cut Challenge and other challenges until the end of the month, you can win the blog candy!

Have a fun weekend with your love ones!

Why Memory Keeping Matters

0613-rediscover-CTMH-masthead

Every one has hobby. I have some hobbies, or I call them fun things I love to do as family or just by myself. Two of them are scrapbooking and making cards. I am still learning and exploring my style. So, I join Close To My Heart as an Independent Consultant 3 months ago because they supply what I need for my hobby: papers, kits, stamps, inks, markers, embellishments, tools, etc.

As an Independent Consultant, I am free to manage my own time to do it. I still have the Quite Time with my God on top of my priority, followed by my family, ministry, then my hobby and business. When I joined my friend, Elizabeth’s (she is a wonderful friend and paper crafter!) team, I pray God will bless this not for my own needs, but also use this to bless others, too.

Why Close To My HeartThis is why I choose this paper crafting company and love their products 🙂 I hope after you watch this video, you’ll know why and will love it too!

If you have any questions about Close To My Heart, or anything, please feel free to send me email or leave a comment on this post. I will get back to you as soon as possible 🙂

Wanna Be A Crafty Momma

Today I’d like to share a random things that I like doing it in my life. When first time I came here to States in 2008. Different way of life. Different things to do. Different every thing. I told myself that I would love to have something that I could do to keep me happy and just for having fun when I was at home alone, when my husband went to office or when the baby was sleeping.

I discovered Scrapbooking in 2008 and did our first girl’s 1st year book in 2009. Then at the end of 2010, I found out about digital scrapbooking, which is fun in a different way. I am exploring how to make cards and other crafts like making hair bows, hair clips, head bands, and brooch from fabric and felt. Recently, I am also learning about hybrid crafts that you can use the digital scrapbook kits for any paper crafting. 

My husband got me Silhouette Cameo for my Christmas present and I’ve been playing with it since then. There so many things you can create with this cutting machine. 

For fun, I join several creative teams, too.

Every time I created something, I prayed that God would use it to bless others and in ways to glorify His name. And I still pray that pray.

I have a different blog for my scrapbooking and crafting, you are welcome to visit it at My Scrappy Crafty Life. Oh oh yah there’s a Spring Blog Hop there, if you wanna join the fun. It starts from Scrapping Everyday Miracles blog, the designer team members are a group of wonderful godly women who are sharing their miracles of life and be blessings through their creativities. Check it out while you are there 😀

Thanks for stopping by! 

I Am Back!

After being abandoned for 4 months, finally, today I came back to visit my Scapbook & Craft corner.

It took a while for me to clean the dust (lots of dried, dead bugs! Ugh!) and rearranged every thing.

Then, my crafty mood was back! So I thought I wanna make some hair clips for my girl and friends.

So I did 🙂

It’s so good to be back!
