It’s time for some DIY crafting fun! As an avid scrapper, when asked to share a holiday craft activity, a mini scrapbook is a must-have on my list! It takes a little more time than usual as I printed the papers and most of the embellishments on my own with my Canon Pixma printer, but it’s more cost effective and I can scrap anytime I want without having to dig through my messy stash of scrapbook materials to find the right designs/ embellishments.
Here are the things you’ll need to create this simple DIY mini (scrapbook) album.

If you are looking for simple and fuss free craft projects for your kids this June Holiday, why not try out the projects from Canon Pixma Town? There are so many pretty things to make and they are relatively simple for kids who can handle scissors and glue. Or you can create them for your kids instead. Some of the basic tools you will need for these projects include:
a printer (like the Canon Pixma I’m using)
sturdy paper like the art card or the Canon Matte Photo Paper
scissors and/or craft knife
glue or double-sided sticky tapes
My first project was a Stationery Holder designed by Simone Legno, the brain behind Tokidoki.
Below shows how the completed stationery holder looks like! Continue reading “Simple projects with Canon Pixma Printer for Toddler’s Use”
I am SUPER pumped to be part of this campaign with OMY! Yes, I did get a complimentary Canon Pixma MG3170 printer and attended the Holiday Creativity workshop at Sheraton Towers some time back. But what gets me super excited is that I am part of a group of “Craft Gurus” who will be sharing crafting tips with readers at OMY and also on this humble blog.
I loveeeeeeeee crafts and I loveeeeeee printing stuff. To me, this is a perfect campaign for me! I have a valid reason to get crafting for the next one month and this is going to help motivate me to catch up on the long overdue scrapbooking projects that have been sitting in the corner of my room for longest time.
Having owned Canon Pixma printers for so many years, and knowing the existence of Canon Pixma Town, I’ve never got down to trying out any of the projects on Pixma Town, just because I always have no time! Again because of this, I have a purpose to fulfill and so I got down to trying out those crafts that I’d been eyeing since.

I bought this set of Do-A-Dot set when Ayra was still very young, then she didn’t know what it was when I tried to hold her hand to do some dots. After our visit to EatPlayLove Cafe, I took out this set of fun coloring tools and a set of crayons, then this girl got addicted to doodling in her first scrapbook.

So I bought this Original Rockfords Red Heel socks from EatPlayLove Cafe over the weekend, and last night I spent 4 hours cutting, sewing, stuffing and putting this monkey toy together. It wasn’t a quality work of craft, if I had a sewing machine, the end product will be so much better and it’ll take half the time!

Sometime early last year, my hands were itching for some new crafty movement. So I picked up some crocheting books from the library and went shopping for materials at Spotlight…
I had done crochet projects before back in school days, and I first picked this up from my Mum. In the past I only made small coin pouches and other knick knacks, so I thought I should try something fun and baby will be able to play with. I dived into Amigurumi (the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small stuffed animals and anthropomorphic creatures).
I did a couple of these animal creatures, though not perfect, but I feel were good enough for a beginner like me. Continue reading “Mummy’s Amigurumi adventure”
During Baby’s first year, I made sure I snapped some photos of my girl every day. I accumulated more than 16GB of photos in total from the camera and the phone. When planning for her first birthday celebration, I had to do something to share her growth. And this is the end product…
