Scraps and washi tapes

Scraps and washi tapes  are good combination.  You just need 1 new patterned paper or 1 cardstock for background  and viola!  A finished lay-out.  Well for my part,  old patterned papers  that are forgotten and kept aside  because  I just sometimes  love looking at them  and not really using them.

I combined here my old Pink Paislee PP's and scraps from websters pages and other scraps  I found in my box.  Yes,  I don't throw them away. And with a touch of some washi tapes,  my page is complete.

Do you love washi tapes too?

Thanks for the visit!

Weekend Bonding

Last weekend,   I had the opportunity to share my hobby with my friends.  We had a sleepover in my friend's condominium in Eastwood, Libis.  It was a great weekend to be with my friends and my boys.  Well,  my husband tells us its non stop chatting and less scrapbooking.  Well,  we did our best to multi-task.

taking a break with our family in Yellow cab (oh, we almost forgot we need to feed them dinner!)
To start,   I introduced to them  the scrapbook tools and materials first.  Since it will be their very first time to scrapbook.  I shared with them my stuff too and extra embellishments (now,  I have a great way to consume all my stuff and make room for new ones).

I also showed to them, a sketch from Filipino Scrapbookers Challenge blog to draw inspiration. And only me, used the sketch for my lay-outs.  I finished 4 lay-outs and two of my lay-outs are based on this sketch.

Here's my take on the sketch:
8 yrs
I did some stamping and masking for the techniques  and of course,  using my favorite washi tapes.

and my 2nd lay-out: 

I twisted the sketch a little bit here.

Its good to be scrapbooking again and joining challenges.  I hope  I can keep it up til the year end. 

Thanks for the visit.
