Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone!!!

I wasn't able to greet you Merry christmas because of all the rush and happenings at home.  This was the first year  that my siblings are together to celebrate christmas.  We had a simple celebration at home and travelled to Tagaytay on Christmas day to visit our vacation house there.  The house was not yet finished in time for Christmas celebration this year.  The kids are not used to celebrate Christmas back home since we always celebrate it out of town with lots of activities to do.  But this time,  we have to relax at home and have some special bonding playing checkers and snakes and ladders which is really not so bad at all.

Before the year ends,  I would like to share with you the last lay-outs I made this week and a card using whipper snapper stamp.

I used the valentine and polka dot glitter papers of Best creation for this card.  The image was colored with copic ciao.  I still have to learn using my copics and I want more colors too!
And here are my last lay-outs for the year!
'You are our best gift"

"My rock star"
Zid loves RNB and rock and roll but loves the look of a rock star!
I love this crate paper and perfect for Zid's photos in Anilao.

"School Boyz"
I got to use the back2school line of Best creation for this page.

From my family to yours,  Wishing you a prosperous New year and lots of creativity and family bonding this 2011!!!   

Have a great new year celebration everyone!!!

Christmas Muse

I gave my muse a christmas touch  and used inkido papers, flowers, lace and metal embellishments from inkido and kort og godt.
This muse was from Iris Uy's class this year and stamped with butterfly stamp from Prima.
I used Anne's christmas papers for the skirt and a strip of the christmas elegance for the belt with the lace.  I just loved her new look and perfect christmas decor in our room.

Don't forget to drop by inkido blog for more inspiration.
Thanks for dropping by!  And advance Merry christmas to all of you!

Playing with Scraps

I love using up all my scraps and even the littlest of them.   I even used the halloween die cut paper of Best creation for this page.

I inserted some scraps of prima and basic grey with my glitter dot scraps of Best creation to create this non halloween page for my sister.  My nephew Migs is so young here in this old picture.

Thanks for dropping by and I hope everyone still got some time to scrap and play amidst the holiday rush!!!

Oh, Christmas Tree . . .

oh christmas Tree . . .

I just love looking at Christmas trees and doing the trims with our own tree. 

I am sharing today my projects for Best creation using lots of Christmas trees from the Falala collection.
Here's a simple card with a twist of a ribbon and the Best creation chipboard to complete it.  I guess this is the only card I am keeping for myself this year as part of my collection.

And here's, a door decor  to greet our visitors as they enter our home.

Please visit the Best creation blog and be inspired with other tree themed projects from the other designers. And don't forget that Best creation is looking for additional design team members for 2011 and you can read all about it the blog.

Have a happy weekend!!!

just like what Goofy says.
And just snobbish it sound like my nephew who hates to have his photo taken.  If I haven't bribed him,  I wouldn't get this photo of him.

close ups on the embellishments ( I really loved Inkido flowers!)

Supplies:  Inkido autumn papers, flowers, lace, blings and pearls.  Birdcage cut from the Tim holtz bird cage die.

Check out the inkido blog for lots of christmas inspirations.

The apples of my eye with Best Creation

My son and my nephews are my apples of my eye.  They give me so much joy and headaches too.  I love watching them grow through my pages and I hope when they are old,  they will cherish the albums I have made for them.
In this lay-out for Bins, I used the winter pages of Best creation. the papers are perfect even for non-winter and christmas theme.
The water fun papers are perfect for Wac's photo.  I just added a few buttons.
And for my third lay-out,  my new favorite,  I used the transportation line and made the mini banners using the glitter cardstock.  I loved how cute it turned out to be.

Thank you for dropping by and hope you had  a great weekend!

Simply Me

I love the new papers of Inkido.  I know they are Christmas papers,  but its also perfect for any occasion subject.  Once a year,  I try my best to make a page just for me.  I have finished the page when I just realized that  I have used the same title  last March. Oh well, nobody's perfect right? 

I made handmade flowers and topped it with inkido roses and patiently designed into a scroll the pearls and bling from inkido.

Don't forget to visit the Inkido blog today for some inspiration.
Have a nice day!

Cute Cards

Sharing more whipper snapper cards.  I am getting addicted with these stamps.
Happy halloween!

Tuesday, October 26, 2010

Stamping and paint

I had so much fun playing with paint and stamps with Inkido.  In my first lay-out,  I painted my chipboards with paint and dried it with heatgun, creating a bubble texture and applied opal dusts for some shimmerz!  I really love using opal dusts in almost everything.

In my second lay-out,  I created a background using the script stamp of Inkido and layered it the sparrow and carte postale stamp. With a strip of paper, lace and flower cluster, the page is complete!
 and I recreated the lay-out background into an ATC. 

Don't forget out to check out the Inkido blog for lots of inspirations.

Happy Wednesday!

A creative weekend

This is the most productive and creative weekend I had.  I was able to make 2 lay-outs and 4 cards.  I enjoyed coloring the whipper snapper images.  However,  I can only share the two lay-outs.  The cards I can share  after they are already published  in the best creation blog.

I heart Pink paislee and just realized that I still have the spring fling line and lots of the old christmas papers that I have to consume.  In my pages here,  I mixed the old papers with their newer papers.
I just posted a new lay-out for inkido using art medium and the autumn papers.  Come visit the Inkido blog for lots of inspiration.

Have a nice day!
