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.

Christmas Rak

"Tis the season to be jolly,  Fala la la lala"

Just a few more days til Christmas.   Have you finished your christmas list? gift wrapping and christmas cards? I am almost done.  My cards are ready to be mailed too.

Here's a card I made using best creation glitter cardstock and christmas papers and embellished with a snowflake brad.  I will be giving this card to one lucky commenter on this post and the mini christmas kit to another one. You may leave your comment (s) until DEC 5, Sunday 12mn EST.  So that the rak will reach you just in time for Christmas.

Yes!  I am mailing internationally  however, it may takes two (2) weeks to reach to your destination and the materials may be late for your cards this Christmas.  But I am sure you can still use them for your christmas thank you's,  ATC or even for your christmas lay-outs this year.

The christmas mini kit includes 6 x 6 Best creation glitter papers, foam stamp, craft & create die cuts, Best creation sticker, 2 cards with envelopes and mix of embellishment.

Close up on the embellishments ( inkido flowers, pin, & laces, best creation chipboard, misc ribbons, stamping up gold cord, buttons, making memories falala flower, craft & create die cuts)

Spread the word, and don't forget to leave a comment. I love reading your comments and to make more fun,  I'll give you another chance in winning if you link your own christmas card in the comments.  I would love to be inspired by you too.
