Smash Travel Kit

Sometimes it is pain to carry what I need for my Smash book... scissor.. tape... glue... pen... etc, etc, etc. I went to the store Ocean State Job Lot and found this cute tote for make-up stuffs for good price. I like the cover so I bought it. It can carry small things and mini Smash book. Regular Smash book almost didn't fit. It just hold the book unzipped. I know some other type can hold regular one zipped.

Not only I have it, I also have carrying craft bag too from Walmart

This I carry pens, glues, ink pads, washi tapes, embellishments, double-sided tape, photos, scissor, phrase roller stamp and few other things.

Do I need another? Well, I bought different one and I use it to carry my watercolor paint set and few things that is not Smash-related.

Cute Little Sport Mini Album/Book

Hi, I have been busy a lot, not much to say but it didn't stop me from doing craft I like. This is my latest one. I have fun with it. I supposed to go to bed but part of me wanted to finish it at the night so late that I went to sleep in the morning ! I ordered a cute stamp and wanted to use one of it to stamp on a piece of paper to go inside the book. The stamp I used is from Vintage Collector by DCWV. The size of the book is 2.5 x 3.5.

DIY Little Heart Theme on PL cards

I decided to make another on another blank back of recollection. I sprayed some blue ink on it. I use cloud punch with grey paper. I also stamped on grey paper to cut out umberella. I also added little red hearts which was punched out. On second card is from Becky Higgins Seafoam kit. I put washi tape of hearts. I stamped camera and then colored it. I added dot enamel and couple of punched bursts to camera. What do you think? They are for my mini album.

DIY little Balloons on PL card

I decided to do something about the blank back of the Recollections card. I used watercolor to paint it. And then punched out balloons and cut some strings. I also make cute label with word Memories. I  used pencil first before ink it. Finally, make binder holes at the edge for my mini project life album.

My DIY Flairs

I posted in FB group about my handmade flairs. I want to show you what mine looks like. Yeah, I wish I have button maker but for now... I use clear circle epoxy sticker. I make few more on left for Disney PL... I'm sure you could see the right ones for Harry Potter...

I got excited to punch circles from little piece of old gift wrapping. I keep it for long time and am able to reuse. I love the look of wrapping because butterflies are "shining" (foil)

I use watercolor to color Princesses.

I know you can do it too.

My DIY cards for my Universal Studio trip

Since there is no Project Life cards for Universal Studios. So I thought I would make my own cards...

I printed some mini photos and then cut them out. I also punched out circular images so I can add epoxy circle stickers on them as flairs. I hand drew banners with names on it. So far I made three and I love it. I will make more later. I also used some washi tapes, enamel dots which was melt from perler beads and cut 3x4 cards from 12x12 sheet.

What do you think? Of course, I miss that place and will plan to visit again someday !

My DIY Enamel Dots

When I look at the photos in FB group, I wonder about DIY enamel Dots. I checked on Pinterest board for more information. I thought it is cool, fun and cheap way to do on your own. I tried my old perler and failed badly. I bought new set of perler beads and played with them in different temps. First try wasn't good. Paper got almost burned, perler beads got ruined by high temp. Surfaces are not smooth. I tried again with mid temp. Not bad but they become a little burned. I tried again for the third time. It succeed at temp 300 for about 20 minutes.

I baked some more and then tried to double them up. It is bit challenged to line them up with stripes on it. I melted them and they looked bit strange that they crooked a bit. I used some dots on my project life cards.
I tried again with old perler and they finally worked. I could said about 99% became dots-- it took a long time. At temp 300 for more than an hour! That's what you get for baking the old ones.

I also bought glow in the dark pony beads after heard about them being baked. It is bit big than perler dots. I tried them out for the first time at temp 400 for about 15 minutes. It worked perfectly.

I had fun with them and bought a big basket of perler beads so I can have more dots in other colors.
