I know my blog seems a little repetitive, but currently, two posts per week is all I can handle. So in order to spruce it up a little, here is a look at my September in pictures (with most unavailable on my Instagram!):

September 20, 2015


I must admit, my inspiration ran out again this week. I started off by pasting the green dotted paper from Pink Paislee's Atlas collection during the week and was all for decorating it to bits, but when I eventually sat down to do so on Saturday, my mind went blank. I didn't wanna spend too much time playing around with embellies and it didn't help that my list of things to do this weekend was extraordinarily long either. So I just decided to go with the flow again and use up some of the bits of papers lying around on my table. It didn't turn out too bad in the end, but I do wish I used more embellies than that pictured. Either way, here's the full spread:

And a little close up:

I decided to use my limited edition blue Midori Traveler's Notebook this week (and probably the following weeks too) as it was making my brown MTN a little too fat when placed in conjunction with another notebook, my kraft folder full of bits and pieces, a cardholder with polaroids and a zip folder with more of my stash. At least this way, both of my MTNs will be used to its full potential.

Anyway, as mentioned before, the underlying paper used was from Pink Paislee. The  washi tape was from Washi Tape Australia. Virtually every embellishment, stamp, rub-on and sticker you see in the picture is from Kaisercraft. I didn't quite know what else I could add to my page, so I added in 'Wander' at the bottom before calling it a day. I still love it, nonetheless, and I think the boldness of the Pink Paislee paper made it all better.


I've been itching to travel lately (I blame all my coworkers who are sharing their stories of travel), so I decided to make next week's layout in my Malden travel themed. It started off pretty plain, but thanks to forgotten travel rub-ons, the spread came to life within minutes. Here's the overview:

And some close up shots:

I used items from a variety of sources this week. Washi came from Singapore, Daiso and Washi Tapes Australia. Rub-ons and stamps were from Kaisercraft. Inks were from both Kaisercraft and Vermagic Singapore. (And of course, my favourite coffee mug from Typo had to feature too). Teehee

It was 9:30pm on a Sunday night when I threw this layout together. It didn't take much supplies. I just needed it to be quick so I could head to bed. I rummaged through my box of washi tape (someone come organise it for me, please!) and I decided to give this week a flowery theme which suited the Spring weather that was happening here in Australia. Here was the result:

I used washi tape from Washi Tape Australia and Typo. I got the Project Life card from the Bloom Edition Core Kit which is filled with beautiful art journal type colours. The stamp was from Amy Tangerine's Rise and Shine stamp kit and ink pads from Kaisercraft. I drew out the lines by myself and voila. Done!


I celebrated my 22nd birthday this week, so I decided to make it a tad bit more colourful by using Amy Tangerine's Finders Keepers' collection. I love how her collection always shouts fun and spontaneity. I tend to use inspiration online for my layouts but since this collection is relatively new, there weren't too many layouts to draw from. So I decided to take the plunge and just go with the flow. The result? It turned out better than I imagined, so yay!

This was the layout for this week. I've been pretty shy when sharing my pictures online because I do believe that once it's out there, it can never be fully retracted, but I guess that goes for having any sort of social media. However, I've been applying to contributing teams recently and my next project is coming up with some other talented ladies, and seeing every one of them asks for a photo of yourself to share, I thought, why not? If you ever wanna have your own line of creative goodness, you've got to start somewhere, am I right!

And now for the obligatory Taylor Swift line for twenty-two:

I don't know about you, but I'm feeling twenty-two!

Have a great week ahead, guys!

Birthday week this week! I decided to continue on with the black and yellow craze that you saw on my previous MTN post. It was simple but colourful enough to satisfy me for the week!

Supplies for this week includes stickers from Kaisercraft, stamps from Amy Tangerine and Kelly Purkey, and washi tape!

I recently got my hands on Kaisercraft's Shine Bright collection, albeit being an old collection. I wasn't too keen on the colours at first, but I must admit, it definitely grew on me. It has a yellow, grey and black colour palette, and I fell in love with it the moment I saw it having a grid paper in the pack. I think I have a thing for geometric shapes - they just make putting a layout so easy! Anyway, enough of my gushing, here's this week's layout in my MTN!

This is a little close up of the 'feature' area. It's simple, as you can see with minimal embellishments. This is the full layout:

I love how I've been slowly able to develop my own style as each week goes by by doing these MTN layouts. It's good practice and it doesn't take too much time at all! It's probably also the only 'scrapbook' project where I've been able to stuik with to the end!
