what I have been busy with

Finally, we're ready to ship our swap package, long due lol!. This is what happens when one is a shopaholic with a never ending shopping list. But, we'll be a better swap partner for our next swap! And I spent sometime doing gift wrap of the stuffs going all the way to NYC! Love the brown paper with string!

Update on my patchwork cosy covers from last week. Did these for MFM since idea gallery 2 has been pushed back. Supplies are from Sept kit - it's all about home, so warm and fuzzy! I absolutely love these - the scenic route circle chipboards & 7g wordies. They are such cool combi. The fall season is making me lovin' all the trees and pines. Etsy has lots of great inspirations on those. I was inspired by the dandelion prints and I really like the idea of a little story telling for my cosy notebooks hehe.

a layout for gallery 1 - I did some rubons on transparencies and you get your very own overlays. Fun stuff.

home journal -
so love the SR circle chipboards and I cut out the tree and branches from SR & Jack+Abby Stripe Dot papers.

cycle home -
the fabric paper is perfect for this. Heehee, I love the idea of cycling home.

Besides working with linen, I love corduroy too! Its texture is almost similar to Bazzill cardstocks and it feels like you're scrapping on an actual layout.

Check back on 25.09.07 for MFM ideal gallery 2. We have 2 new designers joining us at MFM just last week! Check out the 2 talented ladies here.

Off to complete a couple of patchwork tote orders and trying out a few sewing projects.

Happy Sunday! :D
