Christmas in Shapes

Hello friends,

I want to post this picture of Christmas cards, using die cut and punches. I love die cut so much. The poinsettia is from Marianne dies (LR0142). I bought them last year. The big poinsettia (LR0122) had been used here. Love to make cards which are not rectangular.. ;D


I enter this to join Marianne's Design Divas challenge : Dying to diecuts. I am dying that I have more than 15 packs of her adorable diecuts. Check for another Christmas card using her diecut here.

Thanks for your lovely comments...


Sometimes You Pick Your Friends - Oct CCC

Hello friends,

It's quite hard time for me these days, being a real SAHM, as I was having a nanny previously. I "stole" little time to create this to join October CCC. Hope the recipient will like it... As always, I could only manage to make according to the theme: Friendship.

The Tulips stamp is from Penny Black. Butterfly and border dies are from PTI. Love their dies so much. This card was inspired by Jenny Suchin's card in Wee Memories. Still far from the original design, though. ;D

Thanks for looking.


Vintage TAG

Hello friends,

Meet again after some time. It's quite busy here at home. The helper went home and I had to do all the hustle and bustle as a real SAHM.. ;D. So glad to be able to cook again, clean everything, prepare everything, and manage my time among the house works, the schedules of the kids, the teaching at school and at the gallery, the serving the customers and the boarding rooms care. Do hope I always stay healthy, fit, and of course fun..

Here is one of the tags I managed to make today. I used PTI die cut to make the tag. It's adorned with some patterned papers from October Afternoon. I realized, that using the papers from one pad is much easier in combining colors and patterns. Adorable paper pad!
The butterflies are from a punch with no brand but it's awesome. It's a gift from my brother. He bought it in Paris!! So faaar away... The buttons are from PTI die cut. And the checked paper was punched with MS famous punch. Then I distressed it with Vintage Photo distress ink. I stamped the sentiment using PTI stamp. And finally tied it with a blue velvet ribbon.

Happy World Card Making Day

Happy World Card Making Day 2011, my friends.

I was hosting an ATC swap among Indonesian friends. Including me, there are 38 ladies who played along. I just launched all the ATCs, ready to be voted. Just click this link, if you want to vote. Here are my own ATCs.

I am going to make a card, as I asked my friends to do it, too. It's a lovely moment, thinking that there are so many friends out there are making cards just like I am.

How about you? Tell me what you do to celebrate WCMD 2011. Just leave your lovely comments. I'll randomly draw the comments and one comment will get something pretty from me. Have fun, my friends.

UPDATE (7:05 p.m.): These are my cards I made today to celebrate this very special day.

PS: if you want to swap ATCs with me, just leave your comments, friends..
