Planner Pages: Happy Planner Week 44 (Halloween Color Themed - Sparkle & Shine Challenge Sixteen)

It’s been a while I didn’t play along with Spackle & Shine Challenge. Time flies! It’s already Sparkle & Shine Challenge Sixteen! 

Look at the sparkly pumpkins!!! 

Guess what I had created for this challenge?
Not a card but a planner spread!

When I first saw the inspiration photo, the colors of the pumpkins caught my eyes! The glittery purple, orange and black definitely relates to Halloween! However, I don’t like Halloween! You will hardly see Halloween themed stuffs in my collection.

I took out all my purple, orange and black decorative tapes that I have, as well as stickers or die cuts with pumpkins related. I mixed and matched the decorative tapes. Adhered the stickers and die cuts.

I used my one and only one most scary stamp, image of the spider web, from Studio L2E, to stamp along the columns of 31st October and scattered around the top of the pages. 

Lastly, I added sequins to sprinkle and sparkle up my spread! The very first time I used sequins for my planner! What a good try!

Hope you enjoy reading my post!

Happy Crafting!

Waffle Flower Challenge Design Team: You Are My Cup of Tea

Hello Everyone! 

Today is an exciting day for me! This is my very FIRST contribution for the Waffle Flower Challenge! And my first experience to be part of the designer team! Hooray! Yay! Yay!

"Hey! York Tee, take it easy! You better come back from the moon!" 
Opps! I'm overexcited! Hehe... 


Let's take a look at the inspiration photo and the sketch that inspired me!

It is beautiful, isn't it? 
Look at the crochet cushion covers, blanket, coasters... They are so lovely! I wish I can play with yarn but it is totally a 'neigh' for me. A card? Definitely a ‘Yes’!

Oh and the technique of this month is Embossing! I used both dry and heat embossing for my card.

First, I embossed the background with the doily lace embossing folder, blend colors to the embossed doily using sponge dauber with Waffle Flower Fall and Winter Blend Inkpad (Ice Blue, Cardinal, Pear and Custard).

For the circle laid on top of the die-cut doily circle, I made my own background by heat embossing the flowers with white embossing powder and distressing colors over the piece using sponge dauber. 

Here’s the fun part. I made that one-of-a-kind tea cup with two different stamps, a tea cup stamp and 100% LOVE. Cool? I heat embossed them in black, cut it out and adhere to the circle base using foam squares to create some dimensions. This applied to the tea bag as well.

For the sentiment, I heat embossed it in black. I worked my name into it! Coffee, Tea or me (Tee)? Haha…

Lastly, I added sequins to sparkle up my card!


Now, it is your turn to have fun! Make something new (card, layout, tag, planner spread, etc…) using the featured technique. You could be the next winner!

The use of photo and/or sketch is optional. You will need to use at least one Waffle Flower product to be eligible to win.

The challenge ends on 25th October 2015.
