Phew!! What a hectic and stress but surely FUN weeks with making all these swap to be completed, and finally I DONE them all and mailed them out today !!!!!

Now I can shake my legs to start my christmas cards, some RAK.....Have you start to make your christmas cards?

Because Eva is too curious.......

so I display my glue book to Birgit here.....any comments, questions are welcome..:-))
Birgit and I LOVE anything vintage so it was easy for me to create something for her, what I love is what she love, isn't it right, Birgit ? :-))
So, I made this glue book with something vintage theme. I firstly wrapped the spiral bound book with handmade papers that my brother bought specially for me from Bangkok last year. It has beautiful flowers' petal and leaves in the handmade papers. I've seen this handmade papers factory in Chingmai ,Thailand with my hubby in 1996, it just something fun and interested when the workers making the handmade papers.Ok, back to my topic today..:-))
After I wrapped the note book with handmade papers, I stamped "friendship" on cork paper then I glued them with crystal lacquer,the result was excellent.. It was really fun and the result look vintage, I think.Then I stamped the women stamp on the formica chip which I distress with the distress ink pad first and tied with black and white gingham ribbon,my favourite ribbon.
Fabric words ribbon was added on the centre of the cover and I added some vintage pictures( I LOVE them soooo much !!!!) and some dried flowers.
Actually the fabric words ribbon was tied and glued to the inside cover , and I glued a white heart paper, then I made a bookmark for Birgit too...unfortunately I forgot to scan the inside cover.
What do you think ? I LOVE my glue book too :-)) I had fun , fun , fun to make it, specially for my friend , Birgit.

My students' cardmaking class

I had a cardmaking class for my students today. Actually they had their final exam and the syllabus had been covered, so we have a lot of time to do other thing in class. I am their Malay language teacher and I had this cardmaking class today with them,(language=Arts??LOL) and I just can't believe how much they enjoyed the class, and they even begged me to teach them every week !!!
Well, what had we do ? I borrowed from the Arts department the paper punches and decorative scissors. The students bought their own of color papers and cardstock.
What a big suprise, they asked me how to measure 12x12cm? and how to cut out the cardstock, oh my, I laughed a lot and asked them what had you learned from these past five years?
Everyone asked me to cut the papers for them, I demontrasted the cutting and let the others do their own.They had fun played the paper punches and the decorative scissors.We made the Thank you card today.The result are quite OK, as they are very beginner in cardmaking.
If I had chance next week, I will having another class, and hopefully I can show you some of their cards, when they are skillful enough .

Handmade Calendar April 2007

Yesterday I made this calendar for my stamping group, IRSAL.

I had tried out several times on the scrap paper but the final result are not suit my taste. I even can't make it sometimes, my idea was burn out.I need to make 15 pages all of them in the similar design, so it was challanging for me.We will combine and binded all the 12 pages which included different creation from other members. Fun huh ?

Well, I love vintage and want something different on my design.I have distress ink which I bought recently and wish to use it. But, I had printed out the calendar and seems that it was not suit with the distress ink and vintage-style.

So, I just mixed and match some of the rubberstamps and tried out many designs on the scrap paper. I love the old scripts stamps and the women too, I use black and plum ink to stamp them out. Layered on the white and light purple color paper, that's !!! I was happy with the result, what do you think ?
