Camouflage themed pop up box sorry card

Well, what do we have here? A camouflage themed pop up box card! A first for me to do a theme that has military subject matters and my first Sorry card too! Obviously I've never had a request like this before from any of my customers. I was excited to give it a try. I designed this card early this month for my Malaysian customer who's fiance' is living in Canada. 
Since I didn't have any camouflage pattern papers to use as decorations on the card, I had do it from scratch. Her fiance' loves camouflage pattern a lot. So it's important to have them on the card. Luckily for me I was able to find the right colour papers for the pattern. I cut them up by hand just by using the scissors. It was crazy doing this! My hands hurt a lot in the process....huhuhu.....

I really enjoyed making the wedding couple silhouette. I've done wedding couples before but never done it this way. Silhouettes are actually pretty cool. I might use it more in future. Especially for…

Special pop up box thank you card for Tan Sri Zeti

It has been almost a month since I made this huge card for Tan Sri Zeti. I didn't have the time to blog about it when it was done as I had other commitments to focus on at the time. Things had been so hectic the past month, I haven't much time to rest and unwind. It's always work work work everyday. I wish I have more time to blog as there are a few more cards that I have made this month but have yet to upload them here due to the time constraint.
I have to say that this project was the most complicated I had ever done not because of the complexity of the design but because I was not given enough time to get it done. It was quite a rush indeed and it was a miracle that I got it done and posted before the due date. The card design is very simple as Tan Sri Zeti is a very simple person, and she does not like a design that is over the top and full of fancy decorations. So I was not able to decorate it much like I always do for all my other handmade cards. I had to keep it si…

DIY stationery holder

I think I've always been a very practical person. Not focusing too much about the esthetics of the things I buy, but more concerned about how the product will improve my life. I guess this has something to do with my Mom's teachings since small.
I also have the tendency of recycling things in the house that I find can still be of use to me. Why throw them away when they can still benefit me somehow. Some used products can't be recycled and are thrown away and some can be recycled and I will turn them into something useful and give them a new life.
Used toilet rolls for example. I have been thinking of how I could reuse them for months now. During Chinese New Year, an idea just hit me. I wanted to fill the box that I got when buying drinking water, with those toilet rolls and use them as stationery holders! I really needed one anyways since what I was using before could no longer hold all the important stationery items I use everyday. I wanted the important ones to be kept…
