Pay It Forward

Everyone says they want to make the world a better place and young Trevor McKinney is no exception. Only he isn't just using words, he is using an idea. What would happen if three people were given a favor and, instead of paying it back, they paid it forward? If anyone has seen the movie Pay It Forward....one would believe that Pay It Forward is indeed a beautiful idea.

For those who have no idea what Pay It Forward means....please read this:
The expression "pay it forward" is used to describe the concept of third party beneficiary in which a creditor who offers the debtor the option of paying the debt forward to a third person instead of paying it back. Debt and payments can be monetary or by good deeds. In sociology, this concept is called "generalized reciprocity" or "generalized exchange". A related transaction, which starts with a gift instead of a loan, is alternative giving.

So here's the thing.......There is a blogger Pay It Forward going on. The idea is this: As part of the Pay It Forward venture, I will send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leaves a comment here on my blog requesting to join the Pay It Forward exchange. I am not sure what that gift will be yet, and you will not receive it tomorrow or next week, but you will receive it within 365 days! That is my promise! The only thing you have to do in return is to Pay It Forward by making this same promise on your blog. I really love that this supports the random acts of kindness philosophy, & gives a boost to handmade, all in one. I'm looking forward to see who the first 3 people will be to comment! I will have to be able to contact you to get your gift to you, but we'll deal with that once you comment! So, on your marks, get set, go!

My first Pop Up card!!!


The sexy lips popping up hehehehehe!



Notice the knot of the ribbons on the top part and bottom part of the card....symbolizes what I see as "tying the knot". Even though they have been married for 8 years now, but their love for each other is as strong and tight as before! Just like the knots, strongly tied together forever :)

Where do I begin...to tell the story of how great a love can be....a simple story of a lovely young lady's love for her dearest husband....so much so that she wanted something extra special for his birthday card this year hehehe! :) I was really excited about this new project! A challenge on my side to create that special something for her deary beloved....she asked for a big heart and big hugs....but...changed to lips instead in the end...so sexy and so "seksa" she said hehehehe! I had an idea about doing pop up card since I've never done one before so I wanted to try something new....and popping up the sexy lips from the card was an idea I would love to do...challenging indeed but managed to figure it out how to make the card in the end.

She also wanted cupcakes, which explains why there are cupcakes patterns on the inside of the card. If only the card could be accompanied with real edible cupcakes...now that would be super surprise for her dearly beloved! Hope she could get some for him somehow. :) All the best to you Lita!!

Flowers in a row

SGC002

Another A7 size gift card that I would like to share this month! :) It's a first time for me to actually use the beige colored raffia I bought long ago...been keeping it safe for new projects! I've seen them being used to make ribbons and such...so I gave it try for this design...I love it! It matches the small beige flowers and it's easy to use too! I'll be using it more of it in other future projects... :)

Love in beads



MBL069 (SOLD OUT)

Oooops I did it again! hehehe! This is another card I made in January this year and only now am I posting it here. This very soft toned card with sweet colored paper and laces, adorned with tiny sequins and beads that were hand sewn on the white paper is a wonderful card to give for loved ones, especially for those who are very close to you and can be given at any time of the year. :)

On Your Wedding Day


W001 (NOT AVAILABLE)

I made this design last month but only now do I have the time to add it in. Been so busy lately with work I forgot all about it! Yikes! :D I love the two butterflies on the edges of the wording on this card...it's shiny and metallic color just makes it attractive to look at. The soft and sweet colored papers with laces at the bottom adds a special touch to it! As usual there's no wordings on the inside of the card....I usually don't make any unless requested by my customers. But it does of course has a beige paper insert in it for writing your own thoughts inside. This cute card would be just lovely for someone's wedding day to give together with a wedding present and of course not forgetting to write something beautiful inside that comes from the heart for the bride and groom. :)

Shiny purple flowers


SGC001
Loved the shiny purple flowers crossing each other by the stems like two lovers united in love :). I would make this type of card that is quite small in size which is only A7 and use it to put in money in it for the bride and groom on their wedding day. There is even a paper insert in the inside of the card for writing on our wishes for the happy couple. It's like 2 in 1, a card and a gift in it too!! :) Suitable for busy people like me who just does not have the time to think of what to buy for them, so by just giving money it saves me lots of time and headache of wondering what to get them! hehehe! And the bride and groom can use the money to buy anything they like for their new home etc.

I have a few more of these types of cards that I use for weddings but have not yet published them here. Will do so soon!

Cupcake for your sweetheart!

V007


I really enjoyed making this cute cupcake card! Maybe because it looks delicious! hehehe! :) The pattern is a bit different from the cupcake card I made before and much more fun to do as well...I LOVE putting on the glitters on the pink icing on top with the tiny heart shapes that I made using textured paper...it kinda reminds me of strawberries...hehehe...because of the color and texture of the paper. :) I get hungry looking at this card! Yikes! :D
