~ H{ippity} Hop! ~

Welcome to another round of H{ippity} Hop. For today, I'm showcasing a mini LO (4x6) that fits into an Ikea flip-over picture frame. I do these mini LOs whenever I have new photos and slot into those frames. Any old ones then go into a 4x6 album which is easily available in stores. These are fun to do and very fast to accomplish unlike the traditional 12x12 LO that takes me a good 2 hrs or more to finish sometimes.

I made use of Life's Little Moments stamp set. One of my fav stamp set as they are so well suited for scrapbooking.

Here's  my mini LO:

I used Scarlet Lime's December 09 kit. I've a knack of buying kits and not using them so my resolution this year is to use up previous kits before getting new stash (stamps exempted)! Luv this particular photo of us (we seldom get a chance to take a family photo) where we were on a fishing trip in Indonesia last summer. Sheer bliss! The quote was stamped on transparency and the back coloured in white ink to make it stand out.

My next project is a card created for a {ippity} challenge which ask to use black, neutral and another colour on the card. I chose kraft & red and use Kissmas & Mistletoe set.

My card:

 I'm starting my Xmas card early this year with a hope that I will eventually amass enough for Xmas this year! Let's see! Background embossed using Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder.

Thanks for dropping by! Have a great week ahead!

>>> H{ippity} Hop! <<<

It's Monday and it's time to H{ippity} hop through the blogs of {ippity} fans. Luv looking thru' the blogs to get inspiration. Got my hands full today as my boys are off school due to school closure (heating problems).

Here's a Valentine's card I created for {ippity} challenge which asks to add glitz on the card:

Patterned paper from MME's Adore collection. Stamp set from Because of You and Devoted sets.

Here's the inside of the card:

Lately, I've started stamping far more on the inside of the card too.

I'm also starting my Xmas cards early so here's another card:

Patterned paper by Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses. Stamp set is from Kissmas & Mistletoe. This card was also created for a sketch challenge on 365 Cards.

Thanks for dropping by. Have a great day!

>>> On Display: Kissmas & Mistletoe <<<

I know that Christmas is over but not the preparations, namely Christmas cards! It's highly impossible to churn out a massive amount in a short period of time and especially at the most busiest time of the year. Hence this year, I decided to do them early and also calculated how much I need (quite a lot actually). I will need to churn out 8 Xmas cards a month in order to meet my target at the end of the year.

Not surprising, I turned to my all time favourite Xmas set from {ippity}, Kissmas & Mistletoe set. This set has the most adorable and usable images.

Here are a couple of cards that I created:

This card was created using Mojo Monday sketch. Patterned paper by Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses. The mistletoe was enhanced using red Liquid Pearls.

Here's the inside of the card:

Kinda like how the stamping turned out inside too.

Now for card #2.

This card was created based on a sketch by Card Patterns. Same brand of patterned paper as above. The snowman was inked and lined with a fine black liner.

6 more cards to make before the end of this month! I'm determined this year all my Xmas cards will be handmade!

>>> H{ippity} Hop! <<<

Been busy the weekend creating and why not since the weather was too cold to go out. Neither the boys nor I seem inclined to wanna go out at all and we spent Sunday in our jammies. Bliss!

Here's a LO created using Life's Little Moments set. Can't tell you how much I've used this set for my pages.

I did this LO as part of my DT assignment for BackPorch Memories, using Sassafras Amplify papers. Misted the background using glimmer mist and cosmic shimmer and did a tone on tone stamping using the snowflake stamp from Kissmas & Mistletoe (which can't be seen in the photo). Used the journaling block for my title.

The next project is a card, also created using BPM kit. I used patterned papers from Bella Blvd, Honey I'm Home collection.

I used a background stamp to decorate the chipboard house from Scenic Route. Punched out a fence using my Martha Stewart punch and stamped another background stamp on it. The chipboard house was coloured using Copics.

Finally, my last project is another card. I created this one based on the H{ippity} Hip challenge that was issued last week, which was to use buttons on the card. Here's mine:

Patterned paper from Imaginisce. I made use of the Simply Home set. Have not really played with this set. The stamped house image was coloured using Promarkers. I luv using ribbons and trimming and I'm such a serious hoarder of them. So dug thru' my stash to find this particular one that was suitable for this card. I believe the buttons are from Making Memories (a very long time ago...)

Is it coincidental that my cards so far focus on homes? I just realised that the last few cards I created were related to homes. But then again, I don't have any of them in my collection so just as well I made some for 'in case' use.

Thanks for dropping by. If you have left comments, thanks so much. I appreciate them and enjoy reading  them. Have a great day!

Happy New Year to all {ippity} fans!

I created this card based on the {ippity} challenge over at Splitcoaststampers. The challenge was to 'resolve' to try something new. Well, I've been seeing a lot of easel cards around and decided to have a go at it myself. Found the instructions on the net and it was really simple to create it. Here's my card:

Patterned papers and diecuts came from My Mind's Eye Kiss & Tell collection.

Thanks for dropping by and have a good day!

>>> On Display: Because Of You <<<

Here's a card I created using the 'love' background image from 'Because Of You' set. Have to say, it's my fav set at the moment.

Patterned paper by Crate Paper Fall collection. Hot air balloon and sentiment from Unity's Dec KOTM set.

This card was also created for 365 Cards and it was based on a sketch challenge.
