It's December already!!

Hey everyone!

Apologies for the lack of updates since the whirlwind weekend with Sharon but she is SORELY missed :(

Even we got in on the action (!!) that is, we scrapped with our die-hard scrappers!! It was LOUD, FUNNY and again - VERY LOUD :) Unfortunately, we forgot to capture any pictures of everyone in action but these were the gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous projects Sharon taught us :)









And for those who enjoyed the great discounts offered during those two weeks - we're glad you made it! As for those who missed out - don't fret because it's STILL ON!!! Yes, indeed! So make sure you don't miss out this time :D

For those who are busy preparing for this crazy time of the year especially with buying gifts, do drop by as I'm sure we have something that could come in great as a gift :)

Thanks again for everyone who contributed in one way or another, big and small, in making Sharon's stay here a fantastic one.

Have a safe weekend everyone and happy scrapping!!!

CHA Summer 10 Arrivals I

Great news, Sizzix lovers! Just when we thought they had discontinued those ultra-useful alpha die-cuts and now they're back!! Along with a whole lot of other Sizzlit dies too!




Making Memories' use of metal as embellies can't get any better than this. It's verrry light so don't worry about them falling off your pages. I personally LOVE the velvety pagemarks below!







And not forgetting latest fonts for you SLICE lovers out there :)


Basic Grey's "Oliver" and "Olivia" collections are awesome for scrapping with kids' photos (especially for little boys!).





Everyone have a safe weekend and see you soon! :)
