Layout from Scraps

We are all so fascinated and tempted to the idea of getting all the new lines that will be released soon by our favorite manufacturers but have you ever thought of disposing your scraps first? I do. I have been scrapping for only a year now and boy do I have lots of leftover scraps.

So I decided to oblige myself to NOT purchase anything new unless I have used all my scraps. By doing this, it will motivate me to maximize all my scrapbook purchases and save money. So to begin with, I just finished this layout using some leftover scrap papers.


Just a simple layout using some rectangular leftover papers . I think some of it are WRMK's WhiteOut line, Imaginisce and SEI. Layout was inspired by SD4U's Eerie Menu Challenge.

Thanks for looking

Im in the Veggie Top 10 List!

Finally it's Friday! I have been waiting for this day to come honestly. I have been so tired with work and watching over a 1yr old daughter who is always on the go. I really can't imagine where they get those huge amount of energy, she doesn't stop. She keeps on running around, screaming, and picking all the stuff she can get her hands on.

I am just so tired.

Good thing I've noticed that one of my layouts was on TwoPeas Top 10 by votes for the past 2 days. I have seen several layouts of mine on their Top 10 list before but they usually stay there for a few hours. This time I patiently waited and guess what, it's still there. Woohoo! What a great view to revive my week. Top 3! c",)

Here is my layout:



For this layout I've used a past kit that I ordered from My Scrapbook Nook featuring Cosmo Cricket's Early Bird line.

Happy Friday!

Domestic Goddess??? Me???

I have never imagined in my life that I'll be a domestic housewife. I don't like cooking, cleaning and doing household chores but after several years of trying to avoid this, now I am here, a mother, a wife, a DOMESTIC GODDESS.

I am no perfect housewife at all. I still have some helpers doing the laundry and a nanny taking care of Hannah from time to time. I still have my "me" time, I still work full time and I still have a hobby. For me, this is the best compromise that life can give me. A well-balanced life.

And to document this part of my life, I decided to create a simple scrapbook layout using Graphic45's Domestic Goddess line that came with My Scrapbook Nook's October kit.

You heard me right!!! With the help of my co-team member at My Scrapbook Nook, Susan Lui (also designing for Graphic45), some of our October kit projects for My Scrapbook Nook was featured at Graphic45's blog. Check it out by clicking the image above.

Laughter is to the soul...

as soap is to the body. I totally agree with this quote! Laughter is a need, a necessity. So where do you get your daily dose from?

I get mine from various origins. Friends, family, and yes... facebook! (lol) are just a few of my favorite source. My regular dosage of smile and laughter comes from my daughter Hannah. I just feel so alive and so young when I am with her. You know how kids are. They do such crazy and funny things without any prompting or prodding at all! I can just imagine how fun it is to be a child.. even if it's only for a few minutes.

This being said, I would like to share to you a simple layout that I did about my daily laughter with Hannah. This is my take for Category Stories October prompt 1. I have used some leftover Sassafras pps from my stash.

The photo used here was taken at a time I was fooling around with Hannah and giving her my hair for a temporary wig. She looked like Sadako from "THE RING". (Sorry it was a reference to a Japanese horror flick). I was totally out of my mind laughing and rolling with her. This was a very happy and carefree day for us.


This is me and Hannah fooling around. I love playing with her, it even makes me cry because I am so thankful for having her in my life. Thanks for dropping by!

Guess Who???

is the October GDT at Butterfly Crafts??? Yup me!!! Wipeeee!

Head on over to check out the next exciting challenge tomorrow and for the DT reveal!

A Unique Layout!

Have you ever thought about how many people are nowadays? According to United States Census Bureau, as of October 14, 2009, the Earth population was around 6.79 billion. A lot right? But have you ever thought how God made us so unique to one another? Even twins have their own personality and being.

For me, there is really no definite explanation for this. God created man in his own image and likeness (Gen 1:27) and we have not seen God. What I do know is God is a friend, a mother, a father, a brother, a sister, a companion. He is everybody that is why we see God in each person he created. We are all unique in our own little way.

For my post today, I would love to share a layout that I created using My Scrapbook Nook October Kit featuring Graphic45's Domestic Goddess. In this layout, I used an old photo of Hannah blankly staring at the camera as if she was asking a question "who she is." My topic was how she is different from other babies and how we can see her uniqueness even as early as her age.

Here it is:

G45 Domestic Goddess!!!

Happy Tuesday to you all!!!

After several days of rain and bad weather, I finally got my mojo back! It's a good day today to take photos of pending layouts that I finished last weekend. I tried taking pictures of my projects with a limited light source but everything was not right especially the colors.

I took advantage of this great day and started clicking away at my projects. This is what I will be sharing today :)

A few weeks ago, I have mentioned that My Scrapbook Nook's October Kit will feature patterned papers from Graphic45. Well, it's here!!! Got my kit last Thursday and you should see it, it is jam-packed with goodies. Just to refresh your memory, here it is:

Gorgeous right? This was actually my first time working with G45 pps. At first I was intimidated because there are few big patterns on it. If you have observed my previous creations, most of my stuff goes around with hand-cutting patterns from pps. After receiving my kit and seeing them in person, SNAP! Ideas started coming in. These are just perfect for adding some vintage feel to your layouts.

Remember, these kit are still available at My Scrapbook Nook. And remember, if you avail of our subscription, you'll get these kits for only $28 monthly.

Now, I would love to share with you a tutorial I did for an Altered Class that is available at My Scrapbook Nook Forum. This class features this gorgeous October Kit. Here is the finished project:

Thanks for dropping by. Will be posting a layout made from the October Kit tomorrow!

This will be my last month as a Sketch Designer at Creative Scrappers, I decided to not reapply again because I am quite occupied with a lot of things mostly our moving in to a new house.

Happy Wednesday to you all!

For the past few days I have been feeling so sleepy even after taking an 8hour sleep. Maybe it's because of the weather. Not sure. I have this constant feeling of wanting to scrap but I end up just staring on my stuff daydreaming maybe of finishing a layout. I have been searching online for inspiration and was able to get some but I just cant execute them. Oh well, maybe this type of moment comes every once in a while.

Anyway, I have nothing to share with you at the moment but some really cute pictures of Hannah playing with some computer stuff imitating mommy.

Isn't she a cutie :D I love it when she tries to imitate me especially when I scrap. Can you believe it, she knows how to use Tim Holt'z Distress Ink Applicator?!? Cool e? I just cant wait for her to scrap with me someday. Scrapping will surely be our mother-daughter thing.

It's here!!!!


I hope everyone of you are doing okay upon reading this post. As for me, I was quite MIA for the past few days, Manila was hit by a typhoon last weekend causing big damage in the metro. Thank God me and my family are safe and was not affected by it but a lot of people here lost their homes, investments and even some of their family members.

My DH has requested me to post a short plug here for all Filipinos that might be reading. He's put together a donation system on all 7-Eleven stores in the Philippines. All collections will go to ABS-CBN Sagip Kapamilya or GMA Kapuso Foundation. Donations in kind are also accepted and will be forwarded to the DSWD for distribution.

You can view the collection efforts through this link:
