altered plastic plant pot

this is the plastic plant pot my hubby gave me as a valentine gift (well of course with 6 tulips)-- i just cant seem to throw the pot away and so i altered it. guess what would i put in here?

brand strips of the pps i used-- those strips you have to trim when you use your pps! i dont throw them away too!

this is to guage how much pps i have used already. serves as an inspiration too!


* clean the plastic pot.
* paint with gesso
* let dry and paint with acrylic paint.
* decorate with pattern paper. i have to cut them into squares so that the pps would stay straight when glued.
* in my case, i attached the weaved strings over the ribbon for decorative purposes.
* get a chipboard. i painted it with LD glaze. attach to pot.
* get an HS flower and attach a biggie brad or button. dont attach it to pot for the meantime.
* i also streak-stamped with white frost (colorbox) over the bare areas.
* paint the whole pot with decoupage glue including the pps and ribbons except the attached chipboard.
* glue the flower last beside the chipboard.

scrapmeet trophy

scrapmeet 3 won us the championship in the scraptrivia's team category. i and mitch sy garnered the first place... well, sometimes it pays off when you visit a site regularly... for infos or events. lee/tin and helga/liezl won 2nd and 3rd place respectively. it was a day of fun and excitement. coupled with the trophy, we each received one paper pack kit too!


i saw this pic of mine lying around.. thought i might make use of it. though this is just a cam pic shot inside the car, i find it so mysterious. my emotion was mixed, questionable-- oh well, i forgot the detail of this pic but somehow exude something i cannot comprehend.

materials used: bazzill ( the comeback), 7 gypsies, ribbons. i sanded the borders of my pic; used stickers for the title.

RO's birthday accordion card

this is the accordion card i made for Ro on his birthday. i used the blank base from the raffle draw ( last SE christmas party). DONT THROW AWAY YOUR MM FOAM STAMPS PACKAGE!! i used it for my packaging... look at the birthday wishes box design, i covered it with American Craft ppr, embellished some local fabric flowers and used the KandC chipboard saying for birthday wishes.

i stamped the front page with LD crillon and embossed with gold. faux wax seal completed the front title front page.

i distressed the photo with Ranger's Old Paper. i also printed our picture on "retaso" from my son's white pants. ( ro was altering the length the night before his birthday thats why)

handwritten dedication written on LD journal stamp, embossed with pink. i also used 7 gypsies tape adhesive on the centerfold. the word RO was done by using BG mini monogram chipboard and embossed with fuschia, gold and silver. i cut the angel design from a Robert Frederick Ltd. card i got from powerbooks.
various pps used are: daisy d's, cosmo cricket and some BGs. ah one more thing, thanks to joanne yap's cuttlebug dry embossing template. cool! then chalked it afterwards.

haribon entry

joining the haribon challenge was really an experience. we get to pick our own pictures blindly-in-luck and with that pic, we have to procure our own papers and match the pics. in 2 hours, one has to produce a layout. tensed and unprepared, well some are relly prepared with a sketch in mind, we set off into the world of our own.

imagine imaginisce!! thats what this paper is all about. i have to cut some more designs and ink it to make it look 3d. i also used crystal brads. i decided to put the pic on the upper right side just for experimental purposes. monograms from daisy d's.

journalling from AMM stickers. rubons from CE.


this is aeisha at 1 month. i used SEI aunt gerti's garden and scrapworks combined.

tag bookmark demo with preschoolers

i just finished the tag bookmark demo with the preschoolers. it was such an exciting experience because you can see 2.5-4 yr olds doing the bookmark and stamping the images on their papers. i think they are very curious with the feel of the fibers.

it was a simple make and take demo with them. and i am glad i have shared some of my happiness with them.
