The background was created by splattering red ink over the white cardstock and adding the rub-ons from the January kit randomly around the photo. Had so much fun with it! photo IMG_3899_zps587388d7.jpg

For the second project, I created a V-day shaker card with the cute stamp set and pink heart sequins inside the January kit.  The background was created by stamping repeatedly and from this,


I created this! *Remember to use a light-coloured stamp pad to create a faded background and better contrast!*

2014 Year in Review!:D

Heyyie all!! Cassandra here and I am so excited to share my 2014 year in review layout! I created this huge layout by combining 4 8x8" layout together! 


So many things to be thankful and grateful for - a stable relationship, strong family support, close cousins and friends, a fulfilling career as a nurse and being adventurous and trying so many new things! I hope that my 2015 will continue to be like this!
 photo IMG_3819_zps80500f8a.jpgHere's how I created it:
1. First, I used my Silhouette Cameo to measure a 7.5x7.5" square, then I used the Pacifico font to type the 2014 numbers then got them cut!
2. Then I chose 4 patterned papers as the base and cut them to 8x8".
3. I printed my photos and started layering them.
4. The wordings were printed on vellum so that the contrast against the white background will not be that great!
5. And I added foam dots to the back of the white cardstock to give the whole layout more dimension! Ta-da it is completed!
The patterned papers and embellishments I used in this project are from Chickaniddy Crafts Twirly Girl collection.

Guess what!? I completed all the cards under an hour! Let me show you the trick! What I did was I used MME Sleigh Bells Ring Chipboard Frames as the cover and somehow the Pink Paislee paper fits perfectly as wording for my cards! If you have the kit with you, try it! 

Thanks so much for dropping by! Till my next update, take care and God Bless!:D

Chickaniddy Ribbon Binding Album!

Good day to all! Cassandra's back to share with you a DIY Christmas album! Hope this gives you some inspiration to create a handmade gift for your loved ones or use it to document your holiday! 


Here's the final product:

Supplies:Jolly good Collection: Patterned Papers: Caroling (jg14os03), Christmas Eve ( jg14os01), Deck The Halls (jg14os06), Happy New Year ( jg14os12), Holiday (jg14os08), Sweater Weather (jg14os04), Sugar Cookies (jg14os02), Making Spirits Bright (jg14os07), Illustration Stickers (jg14eb01), Die Cut Tags (jg14eb04)

Here's the step-by-step instructions!
1. Gather your supplies! I cut the patterned papers into 12x6" and combined 3 patterned papers into one set and folded them into halves. This formed one signature as illustrated in the first photo. Create as many signatures as you deem fit. Then choose a patterned paper you like as the front cover and cut them into 6x6". Then I gathered the embellishments and set them aside. For this ribbon binding tutorial, use a needle with a wide hole so it's easier to thread the ribbon through.

2. I used my ruler to measure and punched hole with my crop-a-dile! As for the front cover, I wanted it to be firm so I used a cardboard  and glued the front and back patterned paper to it. I scored the front cover slightly so that it's easy to open and it won't be too stiff.

3. Then I thread about 24" of ribbon through my needle.

4. I started out first by threading through the second signature as shown in the photo so as to hide my knot. Remember to leave about 4" so that it's easier to tie a knot at the end.

5. Thread it through in the same direction as shown and criss-cross it at the end and back up again to join with the start of the ribbon. At the end, thread it back to the second hole to find your thread and secure it by tying a dead knot. 

6. You are almost done! Now decorate your front cover!:D You can work with almost any size but I like 6x6" so I won't waste too many papers!
