New Release: Black Friday Grab Bag!!

*If you're here for the SM blog train, look below this post. There's a chance for you to win a GC to my store too!!*

Hey guys, it's grab bag time again. Don't you just love grab bags?? I know I do, especially if they're by my favourite designers. Anyway, especially for Black Friday, I've managed to pack three template packs and one element pack into my grab bag, for one low price: $3!! Here's a sneak peek.. It's available both in SM and SUN! (p.s: The price of the grab bag at SUN was shown as $6 but it's really only $3!!)

Here are some inspiration from my team members:

by Melissa. I love babies. 'Nuff said.. :D

by Melissa.

by Stefanie. She used the new Daily Download kit, Espresso Yourself. The first of the download had begun here. Check back often for more goodies!!

by Stefanie. She used Comfort & Joy, the free with purchase kit from SM.

by Linz. Here's another boy who is so cute with curly hair. I think I can stare at his photos forever!

by Kim. She was on a roll and scrapped THREE. Well, with a girl like Kenzie, it's hard NOT to scrap, isn't it?

by Kim. She used All Loved Up for this one..

by Wolf, using All Loved Up

Here are two hybrid pages from Wolf. Awesome, isn't it?

Here are some more layouts from my team, using All Loved Up..

I just realized while uploading these photos that Kim, Linz and I were using the same template from Gimme Some Space! LOL!! But it's awesome how different each one looked like, right? Well, that's the beauty of templates I must say.. :D

Are you guys tired already? I guess I am too.. LOL!! Now I'm off to take a break before I have to continue marking my students' papers. And oh yeah, I'll be joining the blog hop too. There are really some seriously awesome goodies out there! So, toodles guys!

Hop on the Blog Train.... SM Style!!

You have come to stop #19! If you had followed the track carefully, you would have come from Heather's blog.

So anyway, how was your Thanksgiving? Hope it was a good one. I don't celebrate Thanksgiving but there's no reason why I can't count my blessings, right? So anyway, let's talk about Christmas tradition. I don't celebrate Christmas, but I do love Christmas season. There's just something really magical about it. Well, maybe not so in Malaysia, but I would have loved to experience Christmastime somewhere abroad, where I can experience snow and all those things that I know relates to Christmas. So anyway, what I love about Christmas (eventhough I don't celebrate) is the Christmas movies. I love, love, love Christmas movies, eventhough some of them can be cheesy. But it's all in the name of fun. What I love the most about Christmas movies is that they are usually about families and something about believing. I had just finished watching a tv movie called Christmas Do-Over, where this guy had to live through Christmas Day over and over until he finally fixed his mistakes and gets it right. There's certainly a lesson to be learnt from that movie!

Anyway, what about you guys? Do you love Christmas movies too? If so, what are they? Leave a comment here and you might just end up with a GC to my store!!

Well, if you just come here for the goodies, here they are: two 5x7 cards, made using the Comfort & Joy collab kit, which you can get for free with $10 purchase at ScrapMatters. I would have done some more fab but time is not on my side.. :( Anyway, I purposely kept them simple so that you can embellish it to your hearts' content.. :)

Now that you have downloaded mine, go on to visit Kate. Have fun at the rest of your train stops!!

A Lot of Stuff Happening This Weekend!!

It's Black Friday, baby!

Well, we don't have Black Friday over here in Malaysia, but who cares! I'm celebrating anyway. LOL! Can't wait to hit all the sales. I'm not gonna spend much cos I still have some kits left from DSD that I haven't scrapped with yet, but I am gonna be hunting for some bargain.

Speaking of bargain, don't forget to visit ScrapMatters! DSD at SM was kinda quiet but we're going with a bang for Black Friday. We'll be having a 40% storewide sale during the weekend, along with a free with purchase kit too. It's an awesome kit, seriously! I haven't had the time to scrap with it yet (will do that later tonight) but do check back for a blog train starting from the SM Team Blog on Black Friday if you wanna score some free goodies. The whole team had come up with lots and lots of goodies for you guys. You don't wanna miss this. And oh, if you notice, there's a mention of grab bags on the ad. I finished mine and if you wanna score it BEFORE it's released in the store, go and check out this thread.

There will be a new daily download kit, in which I collabed along with Maria of ScrapMuss Designs, Tater of Designs by Tater and also Wendy of WMSquared Designs. It was a lot of fun. I'm starting the first round, on Black Friday itself, so don't forget to check out this forum to get your kit. Be quick though, the link is only available for 24 hours! Here's a taste of the full kit you'll be getting by the end of the daily download.

And hey, did you notice the new link at the site, under 'My Store' header? Oh yeah baby, I'm a Sunshine Girl now. Yay!! I was one of the few designers who got the spot after the final round of Project Sunshine. My store is still a bit bare but I am working on loading on more products, which means now you can go and get my Mission 4 kit, All Loved Up at SUN. If you purchase it before 4th December, you can get the quickpages for free! So hurry!

Before I forget, SUN is having their Black Friday sale early, so go there and score some great goodies. I swear, the store is really hopping cos the designers keep on putting in good stuff.

Well, I think that's all. I think I need to go and sleep now. It's 5.30pm over here and besides from the 2 hours of nap just before lunchtime earlier, I haven't even slept a wink since last night. Ugh, not good for the body. So toodles guys!

p.s: Have you guys checked out Elemental Scraps lately? That place is hopping! I love it!! My beloved ES is back!! :D

Mission 4: All Loved Up and More Gimme Some Space!

Hey guys, just wanted to show you my Mission 4 kit, just in case you haven't seen it yet. I am very proud of this one. My last full kit (It's A Girl's World) took me about a month to make (yes, it's true!!) so to have this done in under a week with only 30% CU assistance is a miracle in itself. I seriously patted myself in the back after I finished uploading everything. Anyway, this kit is NOT gonna be a free download but it will be available in my store soon, so just stay tuned, alright? (p.s: I'm SOOOOO in love with the alpha!!)

Anyway, my newest template pack, Gimme Some Space is now back at regular price. Here are some more layouts that my team made using that set..

I don't really scrap with this, just wanna share the LOs that I based the templates on.. :D (It didn't look so white-spacey in the size that I scrap. Oh well...)

Click on each LO for credits..

Also for this weekend, I've put two of my wordarts pack on sale for $1 each. If you didn't have yet, this is the time to grab it!!

Word Up: Talents

And oh, with a new release, comes a new gift for my blog readers. This week, I have this fun alpha set for you guys. I was playing around with glitter one day and this is the product. I named it Sprinkled Alpha cos the glitter sprinkles reminded me of the sprinkles on cookies.. LOL! Anyway, I hope that you can find a use for it.. Do leave some love if you download.. :D

Download Here

p.s: I made it to the final round of Project Sunshine!! Yay!! I worked on my kit last night and had to say that I'm pleased with the results. The kit is not gonna be free download though, but do stay tuned! Even if I didn't win a spot at SUN, I'm gonna release it to public during the Black Friday festivities at SM.. :)

Toodles for now everyone. Gonna squeeze in some working time. Had to do something for my boss, due on Monday. Yikes!! Have a good day or night!!

So I Got Mission #3 Done...

... after about 8 hours of fretting while designing, thinking that I'm not gonna be able to do this. Sheesh! What happens to self-confidence, Sya???? Anyway, I've posted it and now just waiting to see whether I would make it to the final round. Hopefully I would but if I don't, it's still gonna be okay cos I've definitely learnt a lot during this journey. (Oh, what a cliche, but so true though!!)

Here's my submission. I went with the whole suitable for both gender theme cos I couldn't decide whether I want the kit to be girlish or boyish. So I have the stars for the boys and the flowers for the girls and stripes and circles to balance it out. Awesome, huh? (Well, if I do say so myself, LOL!!)

Enjoy the kit, guys!! Now I'm off to scrap with it.. :D

I Accomplished Mission #2!

Well, I actually finished last Sunday (Malaysian time) cos I needed a break from all the shopping that I did during DSD. Did you guys break your Paypal account? I certainly did. Bought sooooo many stuff!! LOL!

So anyway, here's the mini kit that I came up with for the 2nd mission of Project Sunshine. Hope you guys enjoy this one cos I sure did have fun coming up with this one. I especially love the tree, the burlap pieces and the alpha.. And oh, we have to extract two of the elements ourselves and that was kinda hard cos I don't REALLY like extraction, but it was a good learning experience for me. Let's just say that it wasn't REALLY perfect, but it's kinda fine by me.. :)

While you are there, do check out the other mini (and not so mini) kits as well. They all rock!! Enjoy and have a good day everyone. I'm off to sleep!
