I have been thinking of making, creating or drawing something for Chewy for his belated Valentine’s Day gift. I know I’m extremely late in preparing a gift for the occasion but time has been running away from me recently. Chewy has started to enjoy reading so I thought it’ll be useful to give him a book. Honestly speaking, the original cover of the book looks pretty elegant and tasteful but being a DIY-loving person, I decided to personalise the entire book cover for him.
It didn’t took me long to “transform” the cover since it’s a simple design. I bought a set of scrapbooking materials and picked out a few items to be used for the cover. The entire process is basically just gluing and sticking the decorations and letters so it took me about 30 minutes to do that! The flowers look kind of girlish, hopefully he wouldn’t mind. This is how the new cover looks like. What do you think?
I bought the materials from Papermarket at Raffles City. Speaking of Papermarket, I went with James yesterday and I find it weird that even though both of us bought approximately the same value of goods, he got the VIP card while I don’t. I checked out their website about the VIP cards and it’s only given to customers with accumulated purchases of SGD 300 and above. Both James and I had only spend SGD 40+ each and it’s our first purchases so the question is, why does he have the card and I don’t? I don’t really need the card to be honest but I just find it weird. The only reason I can think of is because the female cashier has a preference towards male customers. Is it because she thinks he’s tall and handsome and hence the special privilege or is it just a genuine mistake?
I made use of these stickles which are basically glitters with glue, fabric flowers, ribbons, alphabets stickers, scrapbooking papers and a piece of rainbow artwork made from polymer clay. The rainbow was made a long time ago when I was still playing around with polymer clays. I love the glittery stickles because they make anything look great! It glitters a shade of rainbow under the light. Absolutely gorgeous! I’ll definitely be investing in more of these when I’m making my own cards in the future.
