iMBK Shopping

A reveal of what I did for Pink Sketches #9!!!

Description: It's a memorable shopping experience for me in Bangkok, Thailand. We just had to visit the infamous or rather, famous MBK shopping centre where tonnes of tourists are for the shopping. I just had to get my husband to take a photo of me with MBK behind me to mark this "history" visit of mine, though I didn't do much shopping there! LOL!

Journaling: It's my 1st time to the infamous shopping centre in Bangkok, Thailand, where I heard you get to bargain for your goods. Apparently, the Thai shop owners must have wised up to all that. But it was an experience! I could do it again.

Supplies: From Scarlet Lime's August Kit (Tinkering Ink Beau Jardin papers, LUXE Capris papers, American Craft Moda Bella papers, American Crafts Thickers and Remarks alphas, buttons and lace ribbon), Making Memories 5th Avenue journaling book paper.


I do hope you liked what I did with the really bold and loud papers from Tinkering Ink and LUXE and AC Moda Bella papers!! I suppose you would know what I mean about being challenged to really work those papers!!

I was initially really stucked but just went with the flow and I do hope I did the papers justice!!!

Oh yes, just to share a card I did for Sherry. Photos were taken at night, so the quality might not be as fantastic!

A closer image of the stamped scallop edges which I trimmed the excess to reveal the coordinating side of a strip of the same SEI patterned paper (Winnie's Wall range). I double back-stitched the upper portion of the card too.

I made use of the Unity Stamps Aug/Sept kits which I ordered recently from a local spree. It was really fun to make cards with stamps!! LOL!

Sherry was really amused and she teasingly asked,"Is this a showcase of Product sample of what I have?" (She, too, has got the Unity Stamp August and September kits from the same local spree) LOL!!

Anyway, the above card was inspired from the October Card Challenge over at Groovie Scraps Cafe where the main theme should be pink and green.

I hope you are loving what I did the past week (including the Mikayla's Mini Album). I do hope that I've inspired you ladies to go bold with using your loud and boldly printed pattern papers!

Have a great week ahead!!!

Hey Sarah,

I've used Tinkering Ink's Beau Jardin paper line, LUXE Capris paper line and American Crafts Moda Bella paper line for my layouts. =) But the specific names of each pattern paper, I can't recall and I've thrown away the bottom description strip!!

Hope this helps!
