SugarPea Sweet Peek Day 4

Phew... we're almost there peeps! Welcome to day 4 of SugarPea Designs sweet peek. Just one more day before all the new goodies you've seen will be available for purchase!

While waiting, let us introduce you to a cute li'l bat from the set Fang-tastic.



The funny thing was when I first saw this harlequin dies, I was honestly just ho hum about it. I almost didn't use it on any of my card. But, goodness, once I decided to play with it, I was surprise at how much I like it. I like so much that I used it two days in a row (see my card from yesterday). The only bad thing... my hand is now hurting from coloring the inserts!!

The sequins sprinkle I put on my card is from Warm Golden Glow Sparkly Shaker collection. Yep, in case you forget or didn't know, SugarPea carries beautiful sequins mix collection.

Now, on to the giveaway. You could win this Fang-tastic set. Simply leave a comment on today's SPD Blog post and for more chance, on each of the DT blog. You can find the complete list on SPD blog.

Well, that's all from me today. One more day! :)

SugarPea Sweet Peek Day 3

Hi peeps! Welcome to day 3 of SugarPea Design sweet peek. I hope you've been enjoying the festivities. Today, we're introducing a super cute set by our newest designer, called Fall Fox.

It is seriously adorable set! Here's my 1st card:




I have to say I am pretty impressed with myself for using this dark orange color. Hah! Very, very rare where I reach for this color. 

Now, I was going to go with just 1 card, but then I saw a card by my team mates  Simonne Clay and I just love her card so much that I ended up making another card inspired by hers.




The color combo on this harlequin background makes me happy. Sigh... blue... it made such a difference on fall color card. ;)

SugarPea Sweet Peek Day 2



Welcome to day 2 of SugarPea Designs sweet peek! With fall just around the corner, I am sure you're expecting some fall related set, right? Well, for today, we're excited to show you Lovely Leaves stamp set along with its coordinating dies.




Now. I have to admit that fall cards are my least favorite card to make, simply because I was struggling with the fall colors. I find them a bit depressing sometime. I know, I know, how could it be, right? What can I say, I love bright, happy colors. 

Anyhooo.... I was struggling when I was working on this card. I already stamped all the leaves and I just was not feeling it. Then, I start browsing Pinterest and saw some graphic design where they add blue/teal to the fall color combo. I was immediately, that's it!! That's what I need. A pretty, light, blue color to liven up my card. Somehow that light color makes all the difference in my color world.

And, I got even giddier when Wendy created one of the banner for this release using this card! The very card that I was struggling with!

Would you like to win the Lovely Leaves stamp set? Easy peasy. All you need to do is leave a comment on the SPD blog.You have all week to comment! Winners during our Fall Product Release will be announced on Sunday, August 28th.

Just A Random Post

Hi peeps. How's thing going? It's been super quiet here isn't it. Sorry, I just been mojoless lately and just hasn't been creating a whole lot. However on the bright side, I've been slowly cleaning out and sorting out stuff around the house.

Every now & then, I just go through a period, where I just feel the need to go inward. Where I don't really want to create and just in really weird mood. Not necessarily bad mood, just weird. Can't quite explain it. So, when that happened, I usually like to take my time go  through my closet, the pantry or piles of papers, magazine that been waiting to be organized. The act of sorting and throwing out stuff seems to help clear the clutter in my head as well.

This weekend, I finally sold my Creative Memories albums, several refill pages and page protector. I used to be their consultant and always though that one of this day I'll get back and continue my old scrapbook projects. I mean, I have kept them from 2002!! They were all still in their shrink wrapped package. How crazy is that? Well, I realized that my style of scrapbooking have change and I now prefer pocket pages or smaller album. So, thanks to Ebay I found good home for them. It feels pretty liberating to finally getting rid of old stuff and simplifying. :)

Also, we plan to move to Houston spring next year, and I don't want to move stuff that I won't use or no longer bring joy for me.

Anyhoooo..... as far as card stuff, I am up on The Ton Blog today and sharing this fun project. Check it out, will you.




As you can see this post is kind of just me rambling. Let's keep the rambling short, shall we? I'll stop here and enjoy your day, peeps! Cheers.....

Create With Marcie Sharp

Hi peeps! How's thing going? You know, one of the thing that I love about card making is the wonderful people I get to meet because of it. Whether it's someone that I have met in person and online. Well, one of those girl is Marcie Sharp.

So, last week she asked me if I want to play along with her blog weekly series called Crate Together, where another cardmaker and her challenge each other to create a card from a theme or limited supplies or inspiration photo, etc. Well, since I always love creating with others, of course I say yes.

We decided to CASE each other. Since, I am a fan of happy card, I chose to CASE her unicorn card from this POST. This is her card:




Such a happy card, right? I  love the layer of clouds and the cute unicorn. So, here's my card:



I create my own happy card by using Taylored Expression Rolling Clouds dies along with this cuties from My Favorite Things Hog Heaven set. On this set, only one of the piggy have wing, so I just draw one for the one on the left side. If you click on the picture you can see the bigger picture and hopefully you could see the pretty glitters on the wings.

Oh... and that piggy in a barrel is from my own critters collection. I have a whole set of cute piggies figurines. I seriously could not resist their cuteness. I love collecting cute stuff. And, this one is perfect to complement the card, right?

Now, please check out Marcie's blog HERE and see what she created for our create together. Thank you for stopping by here and I hope you enjoy today's cuteness. Thank you, Marcie for asking me to do this with you. I have fun & truly enjoy it. Cheers everyone....

A Girl & Her Puppy

I got this Penny Black set just because of this image. This set been on my pile of new sets waiting to be used for a long time. I think this is such an adorable & sweet set. The girl with stack of presents and the puppy totally calling my name. You know how hard it is to say no to cute puppy, right?



I made this card totally just for fun. No challenge, no assignment. Kind of bring back memories of when I first started my journey into card making back in 1997. Back  then, I only used Stampin Up, Hero Arts and Penny Black set. Penny Black was my go to for anything cute. I still keep their cute hedgehog sets to this day.

Well, that's all for today. I don't know if there's any reason to write long blog anymore. Does people still read blog? I know on my end, I tend to read travel blog, but the rest, I checked out Instagram more. Curious mind do wonder... :) May your week starts out awesome!
