Rock Star

I was quite productive these past few weeks, mainly because we had no internet connection and therefore no blog-hopping and video calls to interrupt my scrapping time. But I’m glad to be connected to the world again. 🙂

I finished a number of LOs, mostly for my son’s first birthday. I’ll be posting it in the next few days.

Here is the first one. I love this picture of him. He was just 7 months old when this picture was taken.

For the title, I altered the chipboard letters to fit my LO. Can you tell I love glitters. 🙂

The journaling is inside the guitar case, at the back of the guitar. I’m proud to say I made this one myself.

Journaling:

This photo of you never fails to put a smile on my face. You look so adorable in your Rock Star get-up. And you held your guitar like a real pro! We can almost hear your hit song!

Baby, you rock our world!

Mom’s Album

My MIL asked me to scrap some photos (40+ photos) 🙂 last month and I just finished doing the whole album a week ago. I’ll be sharing with you some of the LOs I made for her.

Glamorous LOs:

This actually started off as a 1-page LO… and ended up into a 2-page LO. I made the first one without putting the title and when I finished the 2nd LO and put the two together, I realized that it can be a 2-page LO.

The two big flowers I used to embellish the page were part of her costume. I just added some stitching for borders on the right side. I used the Bazzill Basics Granny Stitches template.

For the title, I just printed the word “glamorous” on a piece of cardstock, and then put a generous amount of diamond glaze, covered it with gold dust then let it dry for a few hours and then I coated it with diamond glaze to lock in the dust and walah my very own glitter fonts.

Here is another LO I made. Nothing much to discuss here, I just cut and paste everything. 😉

Glimpse of BROADWAY LO:

Tomorrow I’ll be posting the LOs I made for their Vietnam trip. Hope you can drop by and take a peak. See yah.

XOXOXO,

Father’s Love

Here is a LO I made for my husband to celebrate his being a father to our 9-month-old boy, Zach. I love the outcome although I made it in less than a day (which is not like me coz it usually takes me several days to finish one) and had to keep hiding it from him coz it was my surprise gift. (Good thing I have my basic grey magnetic mat, it’s easier to grab everything in the LO without it flying everywhere. (Forgive me for plugging one of our products). 🙂

I applied the techniques and styles I learned from Ms. Nita and Ms. Cabbie during the demo they conducted at the fund-raising event last March.

I altered the fonts to coordinate with my pp by painting and stamping and then I applied a thin coat of diamond glaze (which by the way I saw Ms. Timi did in one of her LOs). I also applied acrylic paint on the edges of the photos to make it look softer, this I learned from Ms. Nita.

Love the outcome of this one, it added dimension to my LO. I learned this stitching style from Ms. Timi again but I had to use Bazill Basics Flourishes template to do it. I am not very handy with the needle and thread. 🙂

I would like to thank you ladies for sharing with me your styles, techniques and the products you used to create your beautiful LOs. Hope to learn more from you.

It is a wise father that knows his own son.” William Shakespeare

Today we are celebrating your first FATHER’S DAY. Zach is very lucky to have a father like you. Although you don’t know how to change his diaper, or feed him or give him a bath but you surely know how to make him laugh and most importantly, your LOVE for him goes deep within your heart.

Happy Father’s Day Honey/Daddy!

Love,
Ping and Zach

I used DCWV cs, Chatterbox pp, KI Memories lace paper, Colorbok Cb, All About Scrapbooking Cb fonts (altered), K&Co Clearly Yours Alpha, MM Acrylic paint, Color Box Fluid Chalk, Diamond Glaze, Bazill Basics Flourishes Template and various ribbons from local fabric stores.

Thanks for viewing, ‘til the next LO.

Tool-tally Scrappin’ Weekend- Basic Grey Magnetic Precision Mat

This week we’ll feature the Basic Grey Magnetic Precision Mat. Most scrapbookers have either a paper trimmer or a cutting mat but here’s the justification why you should get this mat!

  • Its self healing. So you don’t have to worry about having grooves left after cutting.
  • The magnetic tack holds your layout in place and makes moving embellishments or pictures around easy. And if you’re like me who’s scrap time is always interrupted, you can just hang the mat away from “little hands” and come back later to continue your layout.
  • It’s great with rub-ons! Placing the magnetic tacks on the spaces on the rub-on sheet ensures that you don’t accidentally transfer the other designs to your page.
  • It’s portable so you can bring it along when you go cropping. And it doesn’t take up storage space. In fact it’s always on my scrap table, I don’t even have to store it!

A thing to take note though, don’t use this mat as backing for punching holes coz it’s going to create a hole like what Erin of Creating Keepsakes experienced. Use the mat provided with your hole- punching tool.


This is a versatile tool that you can use for ages, so hope you’ll like it as much as I do mine!

Tool-tally Scrappin’ Weekend: Bo Bunny Flexible Ruler

This tool has been around for sometime and with summer around the corner I’m sure you’ll be scrapping photos of your “fun under the sun” experience. This is the perfect tool to create repetitive curves like waves for your layout. Check out how Erin of Creating Keepsakes did it (Video Gallery/Product Demos). It’s also great that you can easily store this and I’m for any tool that saves me storage space! You can get flexible rulers at the bookstore, craft store, fabric store or hardware shops but I love this coz it’s the cutest among its cousins. What could be cuter than anything pink!

Tool-tally Scrappin’ Weekend: Provo Craft Cuttlebug

Over the coming weekends we will be featuring tools, tools, tools! These are the ones we find very useful and worth the investment. We will start off with Provo Craft’s Cuttlebug and why we love this product:

  • Not only for die cutting, it’s for embossing to! It can even emboss on transparencies so you can add texture to your project. Do look out for their tag teams. It has 1 die cut and 4 embossing folders in a set, so you can create different looks with your layout.
    Butterfly Tag Team
  • Its low maintenance: no changing of blades, inks and the cutting dies are cheaper compared to other die cutting machines. You can also use other manufacturer’s die cuts! (Go to product demos for Erin of Creating Keepsakes review of the product).
  • It’s portable. You can bring it to your crop sessions and because you don’t have to hook it up to a computer or a power source you have the freedom to use it wherever, whenever!
  • It takes up little storage space. That is valuable if you only have a scrap corner like us!

This tool is worth every cent so if you’re looking for a die cutting machine, this one takes the cake. Its the bug you must have!
