How to make two tone tear drop shape quilling flowers

Image
We are coming close to mid February and I'm blogging about something that I did last January! LOL! It's been a month since I last blogged here. And soon enough, after this I'll be blogging a lot more on what I did last January because January was so packed with crafting activities. Unfortunately, I just didn't have the time to blog about them then.
Last year I made quite a lot of this two tone tear drop shape quilling flower for my customers. I made quite a lot of cute thank you cards for them and decorated them with this flower. I even made a birthday card with this type of flower. Since so may requested for a tutorial for this flower, I tried to make one for them. I don't always get some free time to do it, but when I do, I try to make a few if possible.
I do hope many enjoyed the tutorial I uploaded on YouTube.....and tried to make this flower your own. For those who didn't manage to check it out earlier at my YouTube channel, you can check it out at the v…

My first twist circle pop up card

Hello everyone!
In continuation from yesterday's post, today I want to share another Eidul Fitri card that I made this year. This one is a little bigger in size compared to the other design that I blogged about yesterday that is only half the size of this card. I only made two Eidul Fitri card designs this year and as I said in yesterday's post, this year's card designs are all about flowers and I chose the Rose flower as the subject matter for this one.
I also made a pop up for this card and the thing is, the mechanism for this one is similar to the one I made for the other Eidul Fitri card. When I was learning how to make the pop up twist from the various YouTube tutorials, I found out that the base for the pop up twist is the same as the base for the pop up twist circle. The only difference is how the position of the circle is glued to the base of the pop up. They both twist as they pop up but in a different direction and I find that to be so interesting!! That…

Salam Ramadhan everyone and hello again!
It's already June! That means I missed out blogging in April and May. Sigh! To think that I wanted to blog everyday this year and end up not even blogging every month. The guilt is always there, ok!!.HAHA! Oh well, hope to do better next time!! So today I want to share about what I've been up to the past couple of months. 
This year's Raya card design is all about having fun! Fun means that I just don't think too much about the Raya theme and just focus on how to make it look pretty. Previously my Raya cards had to have Ketupat or Mosque as the subject matter. But this year, I decided to do something that has nothing to do with Raya at all. So it was all about flowers! Lots of them! 
I was thinking of doing quilling flowers, but they are a bit time consuming and I didn't have enough time to do it this time. Maybe next year, I'll be more prepared, if I start really early. As you all know, I was a bit distracted earl…

How to make Ketupat ribbons for Raya cards

Image
Hello again! It's March 2018 and I have been busy the past few weeks with lots of things. Early this year I was so obsessed with knitting, crocheting and also weaving. Most of the projects are still ongoing. Still not completed yet because I only do them during my free time, which is mostly at night while watching TV hahahah. But I think I might have to slow down or even stop my obsession for a while because I have a lot of cards to make before Ramadhan comes.
This post today is something that I have been meaning to do for years. It's a very simple tutorial and something that is very easy to do. This year, I got another request from one of my followers on Instagram. She is one of hundreds who have requested me to do it over the years, so  I made sure this year I would find the time to do it and share with everyone how I make these Ketupat ribbons.

As most of you know, I've been making them for so many years now in different sizes. Each year I would make it a point to make…

Quilling leaf tutorial

(My handmade birthday card that I made last year using those quilling leaves)
My first quilling tutorial for 2018. ☺☺☺
I wanted to do this simple quilling leaf tutorial since last year after I made the leaves for one of my  handmade cards. There was a lot of demand for the tutorial after I made a blog post about the handmade card. In fact I did make one video tutorial of the quilling leaf last year but there was some major mistakes that I did in it therefore I couldn't upload it on YouTube. Ever since then, I never had the time again to do another one till today. Waahhh sibuk sangat ke??!! Hahaha! Oh well! At least I did try to make it again this year. The first of many more to come in shaa Allah. ☺❤
When I made those quilling leaves for my handmade card, the leaf was pretty simple. Basically I just used the same technique as I did the quilled sprigs and just wrapped the sprig with another piece of quilling paper around it to make it look like a leaf with veins. This year, I thoug…

My first woven scarf

Hello again! I hope you are not disappointed to see me updating my blog with a post that's not related to quilling or handmade cards. I guess I'm taking some of my free time from card making and quilling to pursue my joy in other types of craft. I want to make this year, a year about learning and experimenting on new crafts and expanding my skills.
Anyways, this year, after finding joy in knitting, I wanted to also find back the joy in weaving. Knitting, crocheting and weaving, all use the same the material, which is yarn to make scarves, sweaters, blankets or whatever we like with them. So after starting the year with knitting, I thought of weaving or maybe after that, try my hand at crocheting too, which I have also tried many years before but was not really good at it. Who knows, maybe this time, I'll be much better at it right? Hahaha! God willing! 
I believe this is not my first time experimenting on weaving. I've tried it a few years ago but on a very small A4 si…

Hand knitted scarves

Hello everyone!  It's 2018! First blog post of the year! It is time for new beginnings and new crafty things to do! BUT at the moment, all I feel like doing is KNITTING! I can knit all day long if I have the time for it. Unfortunately, I only have about 1-2 hours to do it every night. Looks like my love for knitting has not yet subsided, in fact my love for it is getting bigger and bigger everyday. Ever since I started learning about it last year, I just kept going and going at it. ADDICTED!!!
So last November, I started to knit a scarf for the first time. I really wanted to try something other than French knitting and knit something that would be nice enough to be given as a gift for someone special. Something people can wear. Nothing complicated. Simple pattern for a newbie like me. I started searching for ideas on YouTube. That's when I thought of knitting a scarf. It was easy enough although it's time consuming. The thought of having to knit a long scarf was scary bec…
