Journaling in my TN

Hi there LoveliesπŸ˜‰πŸ˜Š!  Happy FriyayπŸ˜†! We survived the week again and here's cheering up for the weekend.  Woohooo🍸!  So what's your plan for the weekend? Having full slots in your Planner...or are they totally blank?  Either way, it's all good because it means that you can either have a fun filled weekend or a peaceful and quiet one.

So here's sharing a journal in my TN this week.  I'm getting really obsessed with these TNs and loving the decorating/scrapbooking processes in each one.  For my personal journal here, I decorated the pages in advanced so I'll just fill them up with my brain vomit (haha!) whenever I'm ready and on the go.


Using washi tapes, 1 sentiment sticker, sentiment clear stamp, date stamp, flower die cut, and a heart shaped foam sticker, I managed to make this within 10 minutes max.  It's really that fun, simple and quick.

People say we can heal through writing.  I'm not sure myself...but I do find that ever since I started writing again, I feel somewhat less stressful.  Feels like the weight on the shoulder has lessen a little...bit by bit.  Is it a coincident or not, I don't know.  But it felt that way recently.  My perspective of things changed a little too.  Well, if that is the case, then I am glad and thankful.  Because I know I needed so much to heal...from present, and especially past wounds.  And I have read a quote somewhere that says "You will not heal if you keep on touching the wounds."  That was really an eye opener for me...a hard knock on the forehead.  So yeah.....let's keep writing and journaling shall we?  And let those stories be written and poured out so they'll no longer weight down our souls.

Emotions aside, and till my next journal post....toodles Lovelies.  Enjoy your weekend, keep on crafting, and God bless.  ByeπŸ˜˜πŸ˜‰!

Love,
Susan

Planner Addict: Week 9

Hello Lovelies πŸ’•!  I am trying to deny the fact that March is just 2 sleeps away!  It can't be, right?!  How is that possible πŸ˜•?!  It hit me in the forehead quite hard last Saturday night as I was decorating and planning for this week.  I almost blurted the curse word and the little boss was sitting just next to me.  Phew πŸ˜–!  Thank God for quick reflexes!

Anyway, having to accept that fact, here's my Weekly Pages for this week...Week 9...before the pen.  



I focus more on happy and gratitude quotes, figuring I needed to remind myself to take care of myself more each day.  It's a good reminder for everyone of us to attract all the positive energy in us in starting ahead on a new week or day.

Next I'll be sharing on how else we can use this Planner other than for Daily/Business/Journaling.  I'm excited to share it you and I'm loving this Planner more and more each day.  Hehe!

So go and be great lovelies!  And keep that crafting wheels rolling!  Toodles πŸ˜—!

Love,
- Susan -

Travelers Notebook

Hello lovelies πŸ’–πŸ’‹! How have we been lately? Today I want to share about Traveler's Notebook or in short...TN. I got to know about the craze of crafting or scrapbooking in a Traveler's Notebook just last year via Instagram, and I fell in love instantly!  I love the fact that you get to scrapbook in a mini version of it...and journal at the same time too.  Aaannd....you can carry it anywhere anyhow.  Just chuck it in your handbag or in a pouch along with your other scrapbooking essentials, and you're good to go.  Another idea or tip, is to decorate your pages first, and then journal later on when you are on the go.  Brilliant isn't it?  It's awesome for me because I get to put my mobile phone aside, and write more instead. Yes!

So this year, one of my goals is to journal in a Traveler's Notebook, and I am stoked because I got one as a Christmas present.  YippieeeπŸŽ‡πŸŽ†!  Thank you so much to you...you know who you are πŸ˜„! Anyway, I looove the process of creating and journaling in it.  Since I have not been scrapbooking for a long time, this is a perfect way for me to start again.

Here is my very first journal in my TN insert that I am using as my Journal for this year.  And yes, that title is my Word for this year as well.  Let Go.  I am in the midst of letting go of anything that's negative or I find as a clutter in my life.  Also letting go of the need to take control of everything.  This includes people.  I never have many friends but the ones that are with me are the quality ones, those who have been with me through thick and thin.  Those who matter the most to me.  And this page is where I express my decision to do so.



Anyways, I'm so happy with it πŸ’•. I don't intend to decorate it more and I feel that I am comfortable with minimal decorating as the size is quite small (10.5cm X 19cm).  By the way, the TN I got came with 2 free inserts.  The other one I use as my Notes and other random stuff.  At the same time, I have made some TN inserts of my own and they're of a bigger size.  I will share more on it in another post πŸ˜‰.

There you go lovelies!  I'll definitely share more of my journal pages with you from time to time.  Meanwhile, God bless and keep on crafting! Toodles!! 😊  

Love,
Susan

Handmade Valentine's Day Cards

Hello there!

How was your Valentine’s Day? I hope you had a great time celebrating this day, be it with your loved ones, family or friends! ❤ ❤ ❤

For Valentine’s Day this year, I’ve come up with 2 handmade cards!
I’ve finally (yes, FINALLY) managed to use the wooden cut-out heart shapes that I bought from Kaison last year and the red doily which has been on my craft table for faaaarrr too long! Lol! 
I tend to buy craft things and then forget to use them. They end up just lying around somewhere in the stash, wondering whether they will be used in some craft creations or just for display only… Poor thing!

So here there are…no longer poor things but all pretty & used for Valentine’s Day cards!πŸ’–πŸ’–



 Bonjour beautiful!


Amazing, beautiful & fabulous!


Whether it’s for your significant other, famliy or friends, handmade cards are a great Valentine’s Day gift to give to anyone who you hold close to your heart. 
When it’s a handmade card, it becomes more personal and one-of-a-kind, of course!

Til then, happy Thursday! Keep calm and craft on! ✂ 


Much love πŸ’–

Planner Addict: Week 1 (February)

Month : February
Week : 1

Hello! 

It’s Friday!!! πŸ’•πŸ’–

Can we let out a huuuuge sigh of relief? I’m just so happy that it is Friday! πŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒ The weekend is the only time I can really chill & focus on other things apart from work! I find multi-tasking during the weekdays terribly exhausting. πŸ˜“ It’s like having so many tabs open in the brain and they require your attention all at once! Well, am glad to have my Saturdays & Sundays not to have to think of office work (well, not until Sunday night, that is, where your brain starts making those “tabs” come popping back up! *cries* 😭)

For this post, I’m sharing with you my planner layout for February (Week 1). Can you imagine it’s February, already?? It felt as if it was only yesterday that we wished each other a Happy New Year 2017! How on earth did we get to February that fast?? πŸš€πŸš€

So, back to my planner… This time, I went all girly with pink, polka dots and tropical! 🌼🌿 Lol! How cute are those polka dot pink and tropical (those flamingos, especially!) washi tapes and bubble stickers! I just can’t get enough of them!

  
Since the month of February started off on a mid-week, on Wednesday, and that leaves you with Monday & Tuesday empty, as usual, I just can’t keep my hands off any empty space…and soooo I embellished it with more washi tapes, my favourite quote, sentiment, stickers and a die-cut scallop! Lol! 

Do you have any certain style of decorating that you love to use on your weekly planners? Do share them with us! 

Have a great weekend ahead!

Much love πŸ’–

The Colour Purple



Hello everybody!πŸ‘‹

I hope you're holding up well through this week..though it does seems that sometimes it's an uphill crawl 🐒🐒 through the middle of the week and then the weekend euphoria happens, and after that plummeting down πŸŽ’ 🎒 with a crash and you find yourself facing Monday again 😭  Lol!

Just to brighten your midweek, I am sharing with you the cards that recently made for an engagement. 

It is a card order from my colleague, whose son is getting engaged. The Malay tradition in Sarawak has it that the guy's side (pihak lelaki) of the family has to prepare a document/certificate known as "Watikah Pertunangan"..for both sides of the family. These documents/certificates will be signed by the representatives and witnesses from both sides during the engagement ceremony.πŸ‘«πŸ’• 

I was asked to make 2 cards for the "watikah pertunangan". One for each side..the guy's & girl's side. The cards that I made were half A4 in size, with the theme colour purple πŸ’§πŸ’§

Enjoy!πŸ˜ƒ

 


I mostly used my die-cut machine for this card πŸ’•


The "Watikah Pertunangan"


Glittery purple! πŸŽ‡


The two cards side by side πŸ’– πŸ’–

Much love πŸ’–
