Material Girl Kit

Just a quick post for today since by DD kept asking me to play with her this very moment and she doesn't want to let me go. I've started this post 15mins ago and still Im here on my 2nd line of this post.

Sharing a layout that I did using the new Cosmo Cricket line Material Girl from Scrapbook Deals 4U March kit.

If you have noticed, most of my designs lately are linear or structural. I just love my ruler very much. So just to challenge myself, I tried not to be so straight. I finished this layout in less than 30 mins just adding stuff as I went along. I had so much fun with it and loved my finish layout. This was kinda collage inspired layout.

I have used Shimmerz Spritz to add color to the white foam alphas by American Crafts that came with the kit.

Thanks for dropping by! I need to play now with the master of disaster LOL

Bayberry Line

It took us longer to receive our March kit from My Scrapbook Nook because we were waiting for the shipment of the new Bayberry line from Pink Paislee. It was definitely worth the wait because we wereamongst the first ones to receive this gorgeous new line.

Here is a layout that I finished last weekend:

Photobucket

Cardstock: Bazzill
Patterned Papers: Pink Paislee Bayberry
Alpha: Pink Paislee Cardstock and Chipboard Stickers and American Crafts Thickers
Ribbon: Pink Paislee
Overlay: Hambly Screen Prints
Paint: Shimmerz Spritz (Tuscan Sun, Sea Foam and Ruby)
Rubon: Pink Paislee
Sticker: Heidi Swapp
Others: Buttons and pen

Photobucket

I used a white cardstock for my background and sprayed 3 colors of Shimmerz Spritz to create some cloudy effects. I also used Pink Paislee's Alpha stickers to create this heart.

Photobucket

I decided to add those black border lines to add depth and dimensions to my layers.

Photobucket

added a journaling and the remaining ribbon at the bottom to balance everything out.

I just love the colors and the patterns from this kit. It is perfect to everyday photos that I have. So get your Nook Kits now because everything is just getting better and better.

Few Photos

Happy Monday!!!

First of all I would like to apologize if I wasn't able to update my blog that often this month. After the long vacation that I had, I was behind with all my DT deadlines and work stuff. I got so busy finishing this stuff and neglected my blog big time.

Here are some photos from my trip:







I have so much photos taken during my trip to Hong Kong with my family and really had a great time. I just can't believe it was over. I am looking forward next year since my DH has plans for us.

Thanks for dropping by

Discover Explore

Hannah will turn 2 next month. This is the age where she explores everything. Her senses, things, new words and personality. I definitely see more changes nowadays. She is definitely a person with her own thoughts, own choices and own strengths. An individual who's happy, humble and nature lover.

Sharing a layout that I did with this theme:

Cardstock: Bazzill
Patterned Papers: BasicGrey Origins
Stickers: Basic Grey Origins Pop stickers
Chipboard: BasicGrey Origins
Flower: Prima
Alpha: Prima
Rub-ons: Kaisercraft
Others: Prima packaging and BasicGrey Canvas tag

Photo was taken last December 2009 at Austin's Baptismal Reception. Hannah was playing at the garden, gathering stones and playing with the grass.

For this layout, I have used the amazingly gorgeous Nook February Kit featuring BasicGrey's Origins Collection with add-ons from the Nook Online Store.

Lolo (Grandad)

I remember when I was young my dad was very strict and protective. He tend to go overboard most of the time and doesn't allow us to do much because he doesn't want us to get hurt. Being the eldest I experienced my dad's love a lot more but I do understand where he was coming from.

Now, ever since Hannah was born, I saw a different side of my dad. He is more sweet and laid back. He looks and feel so young seeing him with his grandchild. I think that is how it works, the parents will do the worrying while the grandparents just spoils the kids with stuff and attention.

Here is a layout of my DD Hannah with her grandad, my daddy.

Patterned Papers: BasicGrey Origin
Alpha: Bella Blvd
Chipboard: BasicGrey Origins
Paint: Shimmerz Blingz
Flower and Butterfly: Prima Marketing
Blings: Kaisercraft
Others: Corrugated board and Martha Stewarts punch


For this layout, I have used the amazingly gorgeous Nook February Kit featuring BasicGrey's Origins Collection with add-ons from the Nook Online Store. I also painted the flower using Shimmerz Blingz (Sunny).

Love Struck and Shimmerz

What a great day to scrap!

For today I would love to share with you a layout that I did using Making Memories Love Struck line and Shimmerz paints. I am so in love with these two products together and had so much fun doing this layout. The papers and embellishments are all available at YSS store.

Patterned Papers: Making Memories Love Struck Newsprint Word,Heart Floral, Valentine Tag, Newsprint Heart,Heart Vine, Pattern heart, Diecut Stamp
Alpha: Making Memories Love Struck Glitter Alpha Stickers
Brads: Making Memories
Doily: Vintage Papers - Doilies
Flower: Prima Marketing Cherry Blossom Branches Pink
Butterfly: YSS Fabric Butterfly - Brown
Kraft Envelop: Maya Road
Paint: Shimmerz Spritz (Ruby), Blingz (Hottie Pink) and Shimmerz Vibez (Red-y or Not)
Others: InkEssential's Glossy Accent, Gems from my stash, and Colorbox Cranberry inkpad, paper clip from my stash

For my background, I added a few drops of Hottie Pink Blingz and some Glossy Accent. I love the tiny circles that it created.

I also sprayed some Shimmerz Vibez and Spritz on the doily tissue paper. I love the combination Ruby Spritz and Red-y or Not Vibez.


I also painted the hearts using Hottie Pink Blingz to add depth and sparkle to it. It's so cute.

Order your Shimmerz paints now because aside from the amazing effects you'll get when you used it on your projects, it's fun and so easy to use. And no stain at all unlike the other brands.
