Bruno: My New Baby

He's cute, cuddly, so sweet and adorable... and he's mine! ♥

Half japanese spitz and half chinese sharpei, the latest type of male species that has captured my heart. Haha! :D

I got him yesterday and already bought him to the vet for check-up. All's good with him. Newly groomed, nails trimmed, 5-in-1 shot done and doggie vitamins purchased. He's scheduled for de-worming next Saturday.

Oh dear, this one's going to distract me from scrapbooking and card-making!

Have a blessed Sunday!

Nikki Sivils "Summer" Happy Birthday Cards

Hello again!

Here are my last creations using Nikki Sivils Scrapbooker's "Summer" collection. I made two (2) birthday cards from what's left of the papers, and what makes me giddy about these is that one's pink (girly) and the other one's blue (boy). Teehee! :D


Materials used: NSS Summer patterned papers, white cardstock, EK Success happy birthday stickers, Bo Bunny flowers, Ranger liquid pearl, Ranger distress ink, Martha Stewart puncher, Shabby Green Door twine, local leaf, brad, ribbon and buttons.

Just Chillin'

Hello! I'm back with another Nikki Sivils Scrapbooker "Summer" collection layout, this time using a sketch from Get Picky's January Sketch Challenge #16:

Banners are back! I honestly can't get enough of creating these lovelies, tied together with twine and NSS burlap buttons. :D

My journaling detail, with ribbon twine and NSS warm cord brads in brown.

Lastly, I used NSS Tree Love alpha stickers for the title and another NSS green cord brad as accent for the camera. :D

Cheers! :D

We Love Summer

I just love long weekends. Today is a special holiday here due to the Chinese New Year. So I took the opportunity to run (a lot of) errands and after that, I have the rest of this three-day weekend to enjoy scrapping!

Here's a page based on Stuck?! Sketches' January 15th challenge:

I'm also on a Nikki Sivils Scrapbooker product roll this weekend, as I was able to create 2 LOs and 2 cards using her Summer collection. Woohoo! I looove NSS products!

I spent the whole afternoon cutting these cute images in creating my layouts and cards.

That's it for today. Tune in next for my other creations using NSS' Summer line.

Kung Hei Fat Choi! :D

Birthday Card for Mom

My mother will celebrate her 65th birthday next month and I decided to make a special hand-made card for her. :)

This was my last creation out of Crate Paper's Random collection kit. I was able to make 6 layouts and 5 cards. Lovely!!!

Three-layered flowers of Prima, with a brad on the center. I outlined mini-dots on the biggest flower using Ranger liquid pearl in baby blue. The outer portions of the card were also applied with liquid pearls in gold and white opal. The top flower, on the other hand, was inked using Ranger distressing ink in tumbled glass.

The "65th" chipboards were first applied with gesso. They actually had a design that didn't fit my card, so I covered it up with gesso. Then I embossed them in yellow embossing powder, sprayed with Maya Road's iridescent pearl mist and dried with heat gun.

Lastly, my ever fave Martha Stewart monarch butterfly punch as added accent to my card.

Have a blessed Sunday. :)

Cards for Mother's Day

Mother's day is still four months away but I felt the designs I was able to create on these cards make them perfect for that occasion.

As promised in my previous post, here are the hand-made cards that I made out of the scraps from Crate Paper's Random kit which we used in our LSS class held last November 2011.

Flowers, also hand-crafted
Hey, take a look at my DIY flowers! I got the inspiration from Vicky's flower tutorials. Check out her blog! She has lots of flower tutorials on the right sidebar.

Detailed paper cutting
Crate's Random papers had lots of designs that I decided to "fussy" cut them, such as this beautiful bird...

...and the red, pink, orange and white flowers in various sizes.

Notice the pink butterflies above? I speckled them with Jo Sonja gold dust. Love the effect!

That's it for today. Enjoy the rest of the week!

2 More LOs from the Crate Random Class

Hello again! Yahoo! I finally finished the last 2 layouts from our Crate Random class conducted by Iris last November 2011. Here they are... Tadaaa! :))

Happy Times

Sweet Bliss

Look at that: layers of lovely flowers.

And this one, wood veneer butterfly from Studio Calico, that I dressed up with gold blings. Oh so cute!

Lastly, we played around with UTEE, stamp and gold perfect pearls. I added that bird chipboard which I painted with acrylic paints, topped with clear rock candy and silver bling for the eye.

There were still lots of papers and embellies left from the kit, so I was able to create some more. Not layouts anymore, but.......

Oh well, just wait for my next post. Hehe. :D

Gotta go!

Hello 2012. Hello 4 New LOs.

Happy New Year! 2011 was another wonderful and blessed year. Despite life's trials, we all have a lot to be thankful for. Don't you agree? :D

Here's starting my 2012 with four LOs from the Crate Paper Random class of Iris Babao-Uy held last November. Yes, it took me that long to finish the 4 out of 6 LOs. Hehehe!

Anyway, here they are and I'm just so happy I was able to find time to enjoy my fave hobby once again.

Me and Teddy

My 1st Barong

Sweet and Adorable

The fourth LO is a scrap-craft new year's resolution of mine: to create more pages of myself! :))

X'mas 2010

Happy New Year!!!
