Hi there, another parchment project to share with you…
All the flowers petals, leaves and butterfly are cut out with a 4-needle tool instead of scissors.
Each individual piece is assembled together with foam tape and glue.

Trace the pattern on the vellum paper with white gel pen.
After tracing the pattern, turn over
vellum paper and emboss with a small ball tool.
Use a 4-needle cutting tool to cut
all the traced pattern as shown.
Use brown and pink card stock as background.
I used a 5”x7” frame for the whole picture.
Actual piece of artwork is display at the shop.
 Do drop by the shop to find out more about the parchment class.

Hi everyone
I'm sure you remember that Father's Day is just around the corner.  This accordion style album is so simple to do and yet so versatile.  It can work as a card, a simple journal, or fill it up with pictures and turn it into a mini album. If you use a thicker cardstock (or just layer more papers), you'll make it really sturdy enough to stand like a frame for his desk. 

I hope this will inspire you to give a handmade gift to that special man in your life.

Mothers' Day is just over. If you celebrated it, how was your day? Personally I had a makan frenzy of Hongkong desserts for lunch and local entrees like satay for dinner. My mother always says, "Eat your desserts first!" and we all know mothers know best!
Nonetheless, the memory of spending the whole day with my family was priceless. And that brings me to this week's project : Keeping the memory in a simple layout.
This week I have used one of my favourite brand , Websters and this is the Love Is kit. I love how well coordinated they look once I put them together. I have only to add flowers from the same brand and more that were ‘leftovers’ from the previous projects.
One of the most frequently asked question about putting a bunch of flowers together is how to coordinate and pick the right flowers. My answer is quite easy actually. I always hold on to these 2 pointers. The first is to pick the flowers according to the colours that you see in your layout. The second pointer is to have a good number of small to big flowers. That’s it! It is as easy as that. You can then just play around with its placement and the number of flowers that you deem fit for the layout.
I do hope that you will immortalise your Mothers’ Day memory in a simple layout or even an album. Memories are experiences that are uniquely yours <3 font="">
With that I bid adios and till the next project, keep on scrapping!

Mothers Day Mini Album
Wikipedia says that “Mother's Day is a celebration honoring mothers and motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society.”  This year, I’m honoring our dearly departed Mom by making a mini album in her memory for my sisters.
While it is sad for us to lose someone so dear, I must say that making this project has brought many many happy memories and I’m really glad that I ventured into it. 
I’ve used a variety of products from Glitz Designs from the Happy Travel and French Kiss line.  There’s the 6x6 designer paper, chipboard album, cardstock stickers, peek-a-boo transparencies and die cuts.  Lots of yummy goodness here!
It’s very simple to make a mini album when you have all these supplies ready.  Do check out what other complementing products Krafer’s Paradise have for you.
I’ve used the papers to cover the blank chipboards that come with the album.  The die cuts that came in this pack were so pretty so I’ve also added pages by sticking them side by side to make a bigger page. 
To complete the project just add flowers, adages, a poem and you’ll have a simple yet meaningful album to share with your loved ones.  I’m sure my sisters will be pleased to receive this album.

I hope this will inspire you to make projects you can share with the moms in your lives.
