Sunbear Publishing KIDS Books

This posting is to help my friend sell some children's books. Not just any kind of books, but quality books printed in Singapore (NOT some sweatshop in China) on recycled paper.

Sunbear Publishing is a niche publisher determined to produce books that matter about things we value. They publish books with environmental and cultural themes for the picture books market.

These books reflect the rich experience of a tropical childhood in this part of the world - books with local plants, flowers, birds and people.

The books help to instill in children a love and appreciation of their local environment and culture. The books also make a perfect present for children who live in other parts of the world.

Please email Angeline at or call/text 012-297 4533 for book orders.

She will also be running a stall at HOMART this Saturday, 28 June 2008, at Ground Floor City Square (off the Crown Princess Hotel lobby) from 10am to 7pm.

I now truly understand Random Acts of Kindness; no, its not those pieces of papers or a scrapbooking kit you give away, but rather the selfless act by a random stranger. I thought I have to share this as time and again when I get inspirational emails or RAKs, I can't help but have this strange feeling that indeed, one small deed, we can change the world, well...maybe not the world but it does make a difference.

A new customer whom I have "met" over the phone offered me and Bryant a place to stay in Singapore when we will be going there for treatment.
Now, that is what I call RAK.
No questions asked... just a sincere offer coming out deep from the heart.

I am indeed touched and although my day started badly, after that conversation, nothing seems to matter anymore. Why worry about office politics or material possessions? It is meaningless...

And today, I received yet another email from another customer offering to help spread the is indeed instances like this that keeps me going...

SCRAPBOOKING helped me get through the worst of times, and I hope by making it affordable we can in turn help others.

We would also like to help in terms of employment and we are looking for a new forum moderator. So if anyone knows of anyone who can "contribute" to our site and has lost a job because of a special need child, we welcome them with open arms!

x-o-x, Val

Noteworthy Part 2

OK, I deserve this!!!
We deeply apologise our NOTEWORTHY {PART 2} is 1 month late! However, fear not, want is still here, and at very reasonable prices...honestly I have never seen specialty papers such as flocked papers or foil papers so darn cheap! If you already have them, how about getting more???

And if rock bottom prices are not enough to persuade you, I am sure this jaw-dropping layout by 2007 Norwegian Scrapbooking Champion's work will!

and more Outreach Programme news

was this week's challenge for us. joined Datin Catherine Lai to bring awareness about craft, charity and the environment.

Working around the theme RE-STORE, we demonstrated how old stuff, recycle-able items and scraps can be used to make beautiful projects and gifts that will last a lifetime.

More importantly, we highlighted how something as simple as craft can bridge the gap between women and assist those in need; both in terms of employment for stay @ home moms with kids with cerebral palsy as well as the women in the Ti Ratana home - Outreach Programmes which and Datin Catherine Lai passionately champions.

DT's Wing's Challenge

"A door knob signage! was what I ended up doing with one of the 4-designs of wings in the Maya Road Wings chipboard collection.

And I've to say, I'm rather proud of my creation. An attempt in trying out somewhat an altered art type style, which I personally do not care for..."


Tips + Techniques (on wings):

I first painted both sides of the wings chipboard with MM Scrapbook Colours Speciality Glaze - Gold. It's seriously one of the BEST purchases I've made off late. Very versatile. Very classy. The end result is an antique type gold sheen.

Well, enough about my new found love ... I then embossed it with clear UTEE - just one layer to get the uneven texture. Lightly, tap the wings onto the embossing pad (so only the surfacing bits are covered) and embossed it with black embossing powder. This allows the original gold colours to come through.

Pierced a tiny hole at the bottom of the wings, stringed a twine through and tied it to the crown embellishment; ensuring that it floats / hangs just above the stamped image of the bird.

Guest DT: Fiona CARTER

Fiona Carter, DT for Maya Road is Scrap-n-Crop's Guest DT of the month of June!
What perfect timing as everyone is goo-goo-gaa-gaa over Maya Road right now!

FIONA CARTER lives on Sydney's north shore with her husband, Paul, daughters Emily and Phoebe and bunnies Bubbles and Butterscotch...

Here's what she says (taken from;

"My interest in crafts goes way back to my childhood. The crafts I dabbled with were many and varied, but a constant interest in "cutting and pasting" was evident - anything that included papers, pens, pencils and creative lettering always grabbed my attention. As a little girl, I would beg my mum to buy me new pencils, pens and sketchbooks so I could draw and sketch. I am still in possession of some of those sketchbooks and I treasure them.

In 2000, I was introduced to scrapbooking through a friend. I was hooked! I loved he concept of scrapbooking, recording the story of my family's lives in such a creative way. My interest in scrapbooking grew quickly and my first scrapbooking layouts were published within a year of starting this wonderful craft.

I love telling a story of my layouts. I use a combination of alot of photos of our everyday life with journalling to tell the tales of our family. The majority of my layouts are event driven. I feel I am able to add multiple photos and elements on a layout without it appearing cluttered. My scrapbooking is elegant and stylish with clean lines, lots of color with a bit of fun and humor thrown in! We know how to have a laugh in our family, and that is extended into my layouts. I hope in many years that my family can look through our albums and laugh as we remember the fun things we did.

My work has been published in Scrapbooking Memories, the Australian edition of Creating Keepsakes, My Reflections magazine, Paper Crafting with Photos (a Paper Crafts publication), Stamping and Papercraft magazine, Australian Papercrafts as well as several ideas books and special interest magazines in Australia.

I have had my projects displayed at several CHA trade shows (in the Maya Road, Paper Salon, Piggy Tales and Urban Lily booths) and a recent National Stationery Show in the USA."

Inspired so far? Well, see more of her layouts using our own kits and Maya Road projects on our site HERE
