I had lots of fun making them and I hope you’ll like it as much as I do 🙂

I’m looking forward to January’s bazaar organized by handmade movement!
More details and photos up soon!

The birth of my name card

I’m a part-time crafter and full-time procrastinator so I have only decided
to get to carving my name card stamp last few weeks
even though I’ve drafted down my design since two months ago 😛

And tadaa, finally did it!! This time I used olive green rubber block for my special stamp ☺
I love the colour and the quality of the rubber!

Mentally prepared myself for the torture.. ☞ Three lines of words!

I don’t have a logo for DROOL so I decided to cartoonize my lovely carving tools!
Easy to relate to what DROOL does as well!

3 hours later… (Just kidding I have no idea how long I took :P)
AND I’M DONEE!!
ALOT of rooms for improvement! But I had so much fun 🙂

This is how it looks like on the plain card!
I realized that printing works better if I put the card over the stamp! (Just for this at least)

Will be printing a few more namecards for 22nd’s Crafty Party!
So if you like it feel free to take one 🙂

Prepping for crafty party but I’m really kinda slow so my strategy is to come up
with my designs and carve them all at once!
I’m done with the Christmas series so there will be a sneak preview  up soon!

Stay tuned! ☼

Handmade garland stamp set

Presenting to you… the final image of my garland stamp set! 🙂

Images successfully transferred on rubber block! Start carving!

It was tedious to draw the acorn cos I failed many times before I came up with a more realistic one haha!

I decided not to carve the small leaf cos I was too lazy #megafail
But I thought the final image could turn out better with the leaf so I’ll continue experimenting!

I love matching pretty colours together! Not the best colour combination but I’m still trying!

Should think about how I can make them into postcards!
Stay tuned for more stamps that I’ve made this week! 🙂

Memories.. ♥

I have the habit of keeping diaries and notebooks because I want to take down everything that’s going on around me so that I can refer back to them in the years to come. I love to stuck all my movie tickets, polaroids, entry tickets to museums, flyers and receipts in my diaries! Drawing and taking photos can also help to keep memories and all the wonderful times we shared with the people around us, or simply those moments that we’ve been through on our own. One thing that I love about film is that once the moment is being captured; you can’t rewind, you can’t delete. Just the way it is, ‘beautiful’ or not. That’s life, isn’t? But we always discover the beauty in every film photo, even if it is underexposed or overexposed. Life is about discovering the beauty in our everyday life! 🙂

AFTER:

It took me pretty fast to get it done and I’m inspired to make cards using them!

Been brainstorming for lots of ideas for my booth and I hope that by the end of this year I can go back to selling my stamps at MAAD! That’s all for now, thank you for reading! 🙂

Happy Mothers’ Day! 2012

JUST FOR LAUGHS!

What I really wanna say is…

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!

(Feel free to share the pictures with your friends and mums!)

Gave my mom a surprise this morning by syncing the picture above into her iPad. She was really happy! 🙂 Anyway, hope you’ll spend time with your mummy and truly appreciate them for who they are and all the things they have done for you! Tell them that you love them and continue to love them everyday!
