September ATCs from members

I am going to be melted from the hot weather outside, even though I am inside my room with my fan switched on. I switched on my favorite BAD CD from MJ and enjoyed the songs. Hopefully I can forget the weather for a while.

Would like to share with you the September artistic trading cards from my group today.

Have a good week ahead. November is coming very soon. :)

September ATC - Reveal

Decided to write a late post today. Slept too much in the afternoon and quite awake now. Finally went for a haircut. These days, the weather was unbearable - HOT. I don't have the luxury to switch on my air con as they are spoilt!

Just received the September ATCs from the hostess, Jie Ying. The theme was "Thank You/Appreciation". Shall reveal mine now. :)

First of all, I used a new dolly die cut that I bought from Krafters' Paradise in June. My first dolly and hopefully I will find something else to my liking. The finished pieces of the dollies are beautiful. The one thing I don't like to do is to piece the individual holes. :(


Folded dollies
Then, I added 3 Maya Road velvet flowers with brads at the bottom of the dollies.

I pasted the dollies on white cardstock. I also used the "Thank You" stamp from Hero Arts and cut out from pattern paper. I used distress ink pad over them to give a vintage feel. After that, I used thick foam to paste the "Thank You" on the dollies.

I have also finished the October and November ATCs. Managed to complete within a day. Better catch the mojo wave before it disappeared.

The members' cards will be revealed in the next post.

Good night everyone.

Oct ATC - Sneak

Today is the closing date for submission of the October ATC. I am the hostess for this month. The theme I gave was "Happy Birthday". :)

I have received some of the ATCs and they are so cute and pretty. I will be sharing the 3 groups designs once I have received all and complied.

What is the advantage of being a hostess? Well, I can do the ATCs later as I don't have to mail them out and best of all, I get to see the cards first before the rest. :p

Well, here is a sneak of what I will be using for the ATCs.

Muscial notes
Have a good long weekend ahead, everyone!

August ATCs from members

What a cooling rainy afternoon! Although I wanted to go out to get my Moomin mechandises at Kinokuniya, I guess I prefer to laze around at home and enjoy the cooling weather and hearing my little one's voice at the back of my head.

Here are the August ATCs from members of my group.

I will be the host for October with theme "Happy Birthday". Stay tuned in November for the reveal. :)

August ATC - Reveal

It is mid october already. Sometimes, I wish time flies fast, while other times, to be slow. My to-do-list is like a mountain now, especially towards Christmas period. Hopefully, my mojo will be able to catch up and reduce the load. Wish me luck!

Today, I am going to share my August ATC. The theme was, Red, White and Star and hosted by Dorcas.

I used Theresa Colin's patterned paper this time round. I punched the top edges with the American Craft's punch and stamped the "SWEET" at the right-hand bottom.

Then I stamped this jar stamp from Dear Lizzy's on a white cardstock and coloured with Copic markers. Thanks to Joanne who guided me on the usage and accompanied me to buy them at Artfriend. My little collection cannot be compared to hers. Maybe next time when I practised on humans and other designs, then I will consider buying more colours.

These were the colours used.

I cut the jars out and sprayed with Tattered Angel mist and glued some dewdrops on the front. Subsequently, I tied the top of the jar with some twine from Doodlebug Designs.

I added a dolly at the background to give a "kitchen" feel before pasting the jar on top.

Happy October and Children's Day Cards

It is October! And I love October!

There are many things to do this month as I am getting ready for the Christmas season to make more stuff for sale as gifts. This year, I will not be selling my stuff at fleas or MAAD like the previous year. So please visit my blog or facebook (http://www.facebook.com/joeycraftworkz) for updates.

Last week, two of the scrapper friends Gladys and Lena appealed to all of us in the group to contribute Children's Day cards or encouragement cards to children in the Children Cancer Foundation and Club Rainbow at National University Hospital on voluntary basis. I think this was a wonderful idea. I have so many kiddo papers and emblishments that I can use to make cards.

I made 5 encouragement cards using Graphic 45 - ABC Primer.





 
Hope the kids will like them.
