Today, she will share a brand new project and tutorial with An ABC Primer. Then, she shares 3 fabulous projects to give you an idea of her fabulous work.

Belly Lau Headshot

Belly Lau

"Hi, I am Belly Lau. I live with my husband, two kids, and my non-stop, expanding scrapbooking supplies, all in a tiny little flat in Hong Kong. I have been crafting since I was little; beading, cross stitch and quite a few kinds of other crafts, but found that scrapbooking and paper crafting has been the most interesting and rewarding as it allows me to preserve memories as well as create home decorations.


In 2010, I made my first ever album about a trip to Taipei with my son. I loved the creative process so much and have been bitten by the scrapbooking bug ever since. I am now a member of an embellishments manufacturer design team and I also run an online business selling scrapbook supplies and kits.

I am so excited and honoured to be one of the Graphic 45 Design Team. I love Graphic 45 products which are always gorgeous. I look forward to showing you my creations soon." ~Belly

We love this handmade game Belly made with An ABC Primer. Isn't this just the best idea? See her tutorial below to make your own!

"I believe we are all familiar with the board game 'Monopoly', why don’t you take photos on this precious family togetherness time, scrap and make a box as home decoration! 'An ABC Primer' from Graphic 45 is a fun line to play with, it is all about childhood. The mathematic squares are just good to form the board, use the alphabet stamps to form the tokens, and how about the alpha lines which comes in few pages of the paper pad? I used them to make the dice and those 'houses and hotels' tiny little books. Let’s 'GO'!!!" ~Belly
