My very first Design Team post


Wahoo, lucky me! I have earned a place on the new Design Team at Craft Box. I am so thrilled. 

Craft Box is a set of handpicked craft supplies put together every month by the owner, Anna. Each box contains 15 handpicked and handmade craft items which can be used for scrapbooking, card making, mixed media projects and jewellery making.


Here is my first design piece using the beautiful products from the May Craft Box, 'Timeless'.

Hello and welcome

This is my little space to share my creations with you all. I am hopelessly addicted to paper crafting, particularly scrapbooking. 


My crafting story started in 2004 when I saw a scrapbooking demonstration on a well-known shopping channel. It was soon-to-be my sister’s 21st birthday and I thought it would be nice to give her a Scrapbook, so I got busy creating one. Back then, all you needed was a piece of background paper, card stock to matt your photo, a few simple embellishments and alphabets for your title. Now, 12 years on, my scrapbooking style has completely evolved and I use lots of different mixed media techniques such as painting, spritzing, pasting and stamping. Why do I love it so much? Well, one of the main reasons is because I get to relive happy memories and reminisce about the joyful times in my life. Scrapbooking makes me appreciate the small things in life like a single moment or saying. I can preserve and treasure it forever!

Below are a few of my most recent layouts:











I love to learn new techniques and I can often be found watching YouTube videos or stalking my favourite scrapbooking blogs!
