Craft Haul


Last weekend, my hubby took me to Singapore so that I could attend a scrapbooking class by Iris Babao Uy. Iris is an amazingly talented woman and she was also super super nice in answering any question that I had. The class was 4 hours long and the projects were an Artist's Tray and a 12 x 12 layout. I thought it would be a slow paced but fun filled day at the class. Errr, don't get me wrong, it was amazingly fun but it was super STRESSFUL! It was my first time attending any type of craft class. I was struggling to complete my first project when I looked across at another participant, and she was almost completing her second project!! She even had time to make something totally not within the class teaching to be included in her project! I managed to complete some areas but I still have the minute details which I have not finished. Hence, there will be no pictures here until I have finished. :)

This post is about what I managed to get my hands on in Singapore. I probably went overboard but there were just too much goodies to pass over! Bad bad bad....


One can never have enough paper when it comes to card making!





Made With Love in Singapore was having a great deal on the Sizzix Bigz XL Dies. Those dies normally cost SGD89.95 each but they were doing 2 dies for SGD88 so I just had to pick it up. I got one which would allow me to make my own scrapbooking mini albums. The other is more for if you are into making party packs. The die will cut out the toppers you need for the top of the party packs and you can customise it whichever way you want it. I was thinking of doing it for my niece's 1 year old party this Saturday but I don't have enough time to plan and get all the stuff that would be required. Plus the party is getting pretty big!

If you notice my handwriting on some of the photos, it was made possible because my youngest brother in law had a superb idea to get me a Bamboo Tablet for my Christmas present. I'm still trying to master using it but it'll do for now. More about the Bamboo in another post. I'm also excited because my other brother in law from UK is coming back next weekend and I've managed to get some goodies to be sent to him too! Hooray! Now if only I can make myself sit down to make more cards!

I have always love Iris, you are lucky that you've got the chance to attend her class. Her work are amazing and shopping is just to bad if you don't grab whatever they are selling. Beacon's glue is my favourite been using since last year.
