About Me
Hi! I'm Xingyun (: I'm a big time scrapping fan, and totally love making cards and mini albums for my family and friends. I started exploring scrapbooking a few years back and couldn't stop after that! Haha.. To start off 2012 and with the encouragement from family and friends, I decided to have a little online 'shop' to sell some of my handmade cards! This little space here is here for me to share my work and other inspiring ideas from other scrappers too! Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day! :D

Valentine's cards idea

Valentine is just round the corner!! So what have you done for all your loved ones on this special day? Well for me, I did a set of 6 cards for my BFFs just to let them know they are very much appreciated! :D

I used Lawn Fawn stamp sentiments and some other stamps from my collection for this set of cards! I really REALLY LOVE Lawn Fawn stamps!! Haha.. Okay, here's the cards!

Yay! Ready to send out! :D

Then of course, not forgetting my boyf! I used the heart-shaped bottle cap which can be found in Made With Love, decorated it with cardstocks, alpha stickers, flowers, twines and jute!

This is the front.

And this is the back!

With a self cut heart and stick it to the back where I can write my love message! =P

Alright! I hope you guys have a great weekend and a Happy Valentine's Day in advance! :D

New website!

Hello everyone! How was your weekend? I had a really busy weekend just cleaning up my room and putting all my craft materials back to where they should be. Haha.. I had a really bad habit of just leaving them around when I'm crafting. =P

Anyway! I had came up with this website to make your shopping easier! It's more user friendly where you can browse all my creations with ease, and the terms and conditions of sales are all there too! If you have any queries, you can use the contact form to send an E-mail to me! How wonderful right? Heh. But the bad thing is, you can't check out directly from the website! The shopping cart is not working. Just go read the T&C for more information ya? (:

New stamps and flower technique!

Yoohoo~ Did you see I'm grinning? Hahaha.. My new set of stamps from Lawn Fawn arrived yesterday night! I'm gonna start making some new cards with these stamps SOON. So excited! I fell in love with stamping recently and couldn't stop looking at clear stamps from all the different companies. Totally love Lawn Fawn stamps' sentiments and their accompanying cute characters.

The good thing about clear stamps are they are CLEAR! Haha.. You can always see what you are stamping and where you are stamping. In addition, you can even try to curl your stamp and make your sentiments appear the way you want them to be! They are just so versatile!

Oh, sharing this video here with you from Split Coast Stampers - the Ribbon Flower Tutorial! It's so cool! Maybe I will make a card with these flowers soon too.

Stay tune for more updates! :D

To start 2012..

Hello everyone! My first post for this little blog I created to share my work and sell some cards handmade by me! :D

Maybe I will do a little self introduction here. I love scrapping and making cards and mini albums for my friends, loved ones and also to remember certain special occasions in my life. Then I found out that I really like making cards and mini albums and am better at it too. I like reading crafts magazines and I usually get inspirations from it and from things I see in my daily life.

So to start off 2012, I decided to give it a try to start my own 'shop' and sell these cards that I enjoy making =P Here's the first card I made for 2012 for my boyfriend, with tiny scribbles in it. Heh.

Have a great 2012 everyone! Do drop by frequently for updates on new cards on sale! :D Like my Facebook Page at http://www.facebook.com/snail.loves too!
