Trash to treasure

Hope everyone had a great weekend.  Its been a week after my birthday and I'm glad I'm back to my crafty mood.   My birthday celebration was simple and shared with my family.  It was just a day I want to skip.  Well, our car was stolen on that day and so glad that nobody was hurt.  It was just now that I can tell all these things here in my blog. 

Anyway,  crafting and scrapbooking will always make me happy and I just love turning trashes into treasure.  
Here's a peanut butter made into an artsy canister for my inkido blooms.  An addition to my growing artsy canisters.  I used my inkido blooms and laces and adhered using a hot glue.

Thanks for the visit!  Hope I inspired you today.  So  before you throw that bottle, just look how you can prettify it with some lace and flowers in your stash.

Have a nice day!

Beach boys

Summer is just starting on the other side of the world and its over here in Manila.  Nevertheless,  with the climate change, we can still enjoy the beaches here.

My boys share the same passion as I do - having fun in the beach!  We all love to soak in the sun and feel the water and waves in our toes.  Zid also expressed his desire to become a diver like us  in the future.  (Of course,  in my thoughts, please do that in your own expense son!  Your father and I did.)

Here's a lay-out of my boys in Siloso beach at Singapore.  We really are so glad we stayed in Sentosa in our whole stay in Singapore.  We got to enjoy the beach every after our tour of the attractions in Singapore.

I got to play with my Prima stamp again and with my Best Creation scraps (surf's up and splash fun)
Thanks for the visit!  Have a great weekend!

All Smile

Whenever I scrap,  it always take away my blues.  Its been a crazy week at work and playing with paper and glue would really make me happy.

Here's my latest lay-out for Inkido.  A mix of old papers wtih some stamping.
I made some handmade flowers using a scallop punch:
a crochet and a flower ( I am now enjoying crochet even if it takes so much time!)

Thanks for the visit and hope I inspired you today. 
hugs, Jona

Happy Moments

 I don't buy expensive clothes, designer bags and shoes.  However, we do invest in memories,  which no one can ever take away from us.  Special Moments and adventures we will always remember.
Supplies: Cardstock - American crafts, patterned paper - websters pages, flowers - websters pages and inkido.

Every year we try our best to spend family vacations either in the beach or out of the country.  This year, we went to Singapore for the Universal Studios and the Zoo for the kids.  We all had a blast.

Thanks for dropping by and have a great weekend!

Swirls of Fun

Its hip to be square!

The Design team were asked to make a project using squares.  Yes!  I can finally try grid design. I have been wanting to try this but whenever I try,  I always tend to shift on my style.
I used the Loops and Scoops collection for lay-out which suited best our visit to Universal Studios Singapore.  Of course,  I have to add some misting or else,  I will be confused if I made this lay-out. 

Here's a close up on the embellishments and details:

Check out the Best creation blog for some inspiration too.
Have a great day!
hugs,  Jona   ( I do really need lots of hugs today.  So many pressures at work!)
