Upcycling my poker cards! 52 reasons why I love you!

Hey guys!! How have you been? It's been awhile since I last updated my blog partly because I was busy finishing up my school assignments during this week of break.

So how about starting this new week with a tutorial?? It's been a long time since I last did one! So here's to share:

This is an upcycling project and I love how sentimental and sweet this turned out to be. I found a deck of old and overused poker cards lying around and thought why not make an album of love notes with it?

So let's try this out together ya? Send me a link of your project should you decide to try it one day!:)

So these are my supplies: Gesso, October Afternoon 8X8 paper pack, basic supplies and definitely a deck of cards!




So, I applied Gesso on the cards so the words will appear clearer from the faint background!


Using the paper pad to decorate the back of my poker cards which look so old and dirty :X







Ta da, the finished product! 52 sweet reasons why I love you. Great as Valentine's Day gift for your special ones or anniversary gifts!

Have a great week ahead!! Till my next update, take care and God Bless!:)

Tell my story

Heyyie guys! How have your weekend been? It’s the start of a new week so let’s fight off the Monday blues with a new tiffany blue layout titled – Tell my story! For Scraplicious September DT assignment, I decided to challenge myself to work on the Teresa Collins tell your story collection. Tiffany blue and orange is often not in my colour palette but I managed to work this out! Had lotsa fun as usual! If you are new to my blog and interested to know how to make the flowers, feel free to head to the tutorials section! Hope the step by step instruction guide will teach you on how to create one on your own.
