Here's what you can do if you have any old notebooks. Get some nice looking wrappers, cardstock or fabrics and give it a new makeover. Found some really neat books from Ikea and wanted to do something for my cousin for Christmas. Got some pictures from Suli's 23rd birthday sleepover, added some captions on photoshop and send it for print. It looked awesome with the original wrapper, so all that needed to be wrapped was just the back where it says IKEA. Once wrapper was done, added ribbon and lastly pictures =) My only regret was I only got it done way after christmas. hehe. but she loved it.
Merry Christmas Hsulynn, my dear cousin!!
On a separate note, I finally checked out Craft Haven in I U. I always wanted to check it out since they renovated in January but never got the chance to till few days ago. They sold many items from KCK (my fav brand by far) and Kaiser (both from Spore). They prices are just a lil higher then what you can find in Singapore. Although some are pretty reasonable. I bought A VersaInk inkpad for $4.00 in Singapore while I can get it for about Rm6.90 in Craft Haven. Check them out if you get the chance, you art and scrapbook lovers! (In the new wing). I'm planning to check out their classes offered. Time to learn and sharpen my skills.
