Good evening, folks!!

It's time for another Milk Coffee Challenge, and this time, it's my favorite kind of card-making style: Layering it Up! I just love mixing up patterned paper and embellies and adding dimension!

Hope you get to play along with us! See the blog for more DT inspiration!


October Review over at CCD!

Hi peeps!

I've got not one, not two....but THREE cards for you today! It's time for a review on the October Releases of C.C. Designs!

First is Rodney's Ride. Isn't he the cutest? Love him and his quirkiness! I paired him up with the equally cute and quirky line of Love, Elsie! Boy, was I hoarding this Christmas line! I think it's from 2006.


Because of the colors of the patterned paper, I chose this whimsical and colorful tree sticker by Jolee's as well!


What a fun Holiday so far, eh??

Next is the Bird image from the Vintage Winter stamp (you get three images!). What a darling birdie! I wanted this card to look a bit more classic so I used traditional Poinsetta stickers and papers. And of course, that gold embossed card stock too!



Then, last, but not least is the Holiday Penguins!


I can't get over how adorable they are!! Too cute!!


Have a great day! And remember to check out the store and the rest of the DT!

Mini Sprites in the Cupboard!


Happy Tuesday everyone!!

Today is C.C. Designs' day to highlight the oh-so-cute stamps of Make It Crafty, and today I've got a card featuring one of the mini sprites!

Isn't she so pretty? She reminds me of The Littles, do you remember that cartoon? So I thought I'd pair her up with mason jars as she is so tiny. She's playing in the pantry here :). I thought these printables from Shanna Noel are just delightful with her! (I love everything SN does!).


Have a gorgeous day!!

Roberto's Kisses.


Happy Hump Day, peeps!!

It's time for C.C. Designs' preview of their new releases this month! Today, it's all about those Roberto's Rascals. This cute and hilarious stamp is called Roberto's Kisses, and it'll be available come October 2nd!

I just love love love this stamp. It's so adorable, and that cat's facial expression says it all, LOL!!!


I have not yet bought any new Christmas papers... these are all from the previous years. I've compiled my Holiday papers and stickers into one box, and it's so helpful picking out what I want and a good way to use up those scraps!

Anyway, I hope you visit the CCD blog to look at more stamps and creations!!

See you later, alligator!

Pollycraft Russell.

Hi everyone!!

Here's a card featuring a review on the September release of Pollycraft Russell over at C.C. Designs!

Isn't he cute? Reminds me so much of my boys!



Decided to go really simple this week. I've been getting inspired by the CAS cards on IG!

And the sentiment is by Suzy Plantamura - love her sentiment designs!

Have a great Hump Day!!

Happy 3rd Birthday, Milk Coffee!

Hello, hello, hello!!

And welcome to Milk Coffee's 3rd Anniversary Blog Hop!!

First of all, I just wanted to say Happy Anniversary to a wonderful company and DT! And secondly, we are celebrating with a special challenge and blog hop! Our theme for this challenge is THREE. That is, you could use three colors, three papers, three images, etc...whatever you want, just do it in threes! Both the showcase and challenge teams are doing it!

So I chose Lisbeth and the Big Mushroom in the rain digi - there are three images in here :). There are three patterned papers (all from Amy Tangerine), and I used three pieces of chipboard stickers to embellish.



I hope you get to join us! The contest/ blog hop will last two weeks -- until the 2nd of October. For those of you in the U.S.A., that is really October 1st because of the time difference. You can always check how much time is left by going to the main Milk Coffee challenge website. Hope you all get to play along!!

The rules of the hop are as follows :

1. Visit each of our DT members blogs in turn and leave a comment on their Birthday Blog Hop post.

2. Return back here to the main blog & add your name into the linky.

Here's the blog order:

Rinne -- you are here!
Milk Coffee

The winner of the blog hop will receive 5 DIGI IMAGES and request ONE CUSTOM IMAGE from us :) and will be drawn at random on 2rd of October

* please note - we will be checking that the randomly drawn winner has left a comment on each of our DT's post *

As a freebie, you can copy and paste this awesome image now!!

Honey and Latte Sue.

Hi there!!

Today, I'm doing reviews on two Roberto's Amigas stamps over at C.C. Designs: Honey and Latte Sue.



I personally love how these images look like they're in the 30s, don't you? They reflect my age and a whole lot of crafters out there, hee hee hee!
The cards are done up in Fall colors. I've been doing that a lot lately. Wishful thinking, I guess. It's still in the '80s here in California. I wish it'd turn a bit cooler already :).

See you folks!!

Ribbons and her ribbons and doilies.


Good Tuesday morning, folks!!

It's been awhile since I've played with Some Odd Girl stamps -- I've quite missed them!! Here's a card I created for one of my dear co-workers -- she has an upcoming wedding, and I was in charge of her group card. Believe me, I wanted to put some kind of plastic covering on the front of this for fear that it'll get wrinkled, or dirty, or ruined when my colleagues are signing it!

Gold is my new fave color, and I really like how this card came out. SOG's Ribbons is also so beautiful! And that gold foil doilie in the middle is also from SOG.

I colored the image first, and then looked up the current Facebook challenge. Wouldn't you know it? The theme is Trash your Stash - Use up your ribbon!! He he! So Ribbons will be the image for the ribbon challenge, and then I added some lace trim and lilac ribbon as well! Ties off the romantic feel, don't ya think (Some PUN intended, buwhahahaha)?


Till tomorrow, peeps!!

Life is "Berry Sweet" at the Greeting Farm.

Hi everyone! I'm up on the TGF blog today! Here's my excerpt:

"Good Monday morning to you all!

It's Rinne here, and it's time to highlight a Print & Cut kit. This time, it's all about the Berry Sweet Daily Life.




What's great about these Print & Cut files is it's so versatile. They were originally designed for the girly-ness in all of us, but as you can see, they pretty much work for this page of my boys, right? And see the strip of the "Kiss Kiss" paper on the left? You can make your own patterned paper using these kits! All I did was open Word, and copied and pasted, then printed. Voila! I also layered some of the labels and images together to create my own "embellies."




The Berry Sweet Daily Life elements aren't just for pocket-style scrapbooking. They could also be used for traditional scrapbooking or even cards and 3D projects. Above is a lay-out I made of my friend and niece. This one is truly for a girl :)."

Stamps used are 1 & 2: From the Super Secret Stamp Club : Day Out and Cheeky Sweet and 3: Ian from the set of New Mommy and Daddy (can't find the link, but it's one of the older stamp sets of Anya and Ian).

Other items also used are:

1. Page protector - from Becky Higgin's Project Life line.

2. Other paper embellishments - Amy Tangerine.

3. Cardstock - Bazzill.

4. Copic Markers, writing pen - Project Life.

Thanks so much for passing by!!

Taking me back to my clubbing days! :)


Hope you are all having a wonderful Saturday so far!! It is a weekend off for moi, and I'm so excited to be spending it with some family and friends. I even got some crafting time in, yay!!

Today's card features Time for Tea Design's Festival Girl. She is fun and carefree, and I wanted the card to reflect that!

Now, although I know what music festivals are all about, I haven't actually been to one. I have, however, gone to many concerts and clubs. I chose some awesome fantasy-themed Bam-Pop papers to accompany her. She's at a Katie Perry concert, or even a rave at the Mission side of San Francisco :).


There's lots of merriment and dancing, some drinking, and maybe a couple of fun stuffed animals being thrown around by the crowd, LOL! Tee-hee! Oh, to be young again!!

Have an awesome weekend! Toodles,

Colors of Fall.


Pssst!! Hello again!!

It's morning time on the other side of the world, where the company, Milk Coffee stamps, is located :). So the next challenge is here, and it's all about Autumn colors!!

I chose Dog Hug, and made the dog look like a golden retriever (my sis has one!). I could just picture these two frolicking in the forest and having a blast! Loving the rusts and greens and oranges in that paper!


Hope you get to join us on the challenge!!


Autumn's Mum.


Happy Hump Day, folks!

Today, my post is all about the review on the September releases of C.C. Designs (one of them anyway). Here's Swiss Pixie Autumn's Mum. Ironically, she's all about Fall, but all of the papers (except for the two cardstocks) are from Inspire Lovely's Summer Love kit that I got from Debee's Etsy.


I think the kit is pretty versatile, and so is this stamp!

See you all soon!

Pandamonium fam.


Hi all! I think this will be my very first post on Mama Elephant stamps! I have adored their clean and crisp style for a while now. And I was so excited when I got Pandamonium in the mail!

I would love to start doing more CAS cards, but for now, I used my layering style for these stamps to make one of my best friends a card! She just had a baby girl!


Can I just tell you that even if I love my Copics, it's refreshing not to have to use them on these stamps! :)

Thanks so much for visiting!!
