a mini book-card-in-a-jar for my dear friend

i made this card like a superwoman again.. i have many errands to make, projects to submit...but i finally told myself that i think nita will love this. i have yet to give this to her in an hour or so... hope she is not online now.

i bought a plastic candy/spice jar at SM and some glass pebbles to put my mini book-card into. the book-card is made from cutting half the size of a 3x5 index card with illustration board. i then decorated with pattern papers, stickers and flowers!

of course the ever reliable crop a dile made the whole cutee card a standout. i punched 2 holes on each side, take note that the cover is made from illustration board too. i also punched the plastic jar! see!!what a babe! attached some ribbons and there you have it. a home-made, personalized cover substituted for the original plastic cover.

i used the we r memory makers extra large eyelets!!! crop a dile lover here you go...

finally a prima for nita..."thanks for the friendship. youre like a big sister to me... cabbie"

Altering the "altered" journal

when i say i am altering the altered journal, i mean it. this is a second "altered" look of my journal... check the original altered journal here

steps ::

1.i painted the cover with MM acrylic paint after getting the original flower and ppr off.

2. let the paint dry. spray with my favorite walnut ink antiquing spray!

3. i used the lil davis chipboard frame ( the one i used for mitch's card), attached some AC biggy brads on four holes and on top of it, epoxy stickers from Mod.

4. to finalize the whole scene, i added the faux wax seal to the bare middle. some ribbons from AC were adhered... and since this is a 2 way ribbon -- the colors are coordinated.

idol sentiments

being a scrappin idol participant has made me a insane scrapper. for the past 2 days, i have been cramming for a layout i dont usually do. a challenge indeed.

i have to scout for cs because i really dont stock them. i have to find the right embellishment to go with the design of the layout. i know each of us are really serious about this because this is a real challenge. exciting as it may sound, this is also tension on the making. i want this to be fun but there is the fear of rejection. admit it, we all wanted to be part of being a winner but sometimes, of course, not everybody wins.

so, i just hope that i do my best. if i dont make it to the top, i just hope that i would be able to make MANY layouts. you get my point? MANY LAYOUTS!!!lol.

ff up::: round 1--> i think i am not scrapping normally. i do not scrap my normal layouts anymore. i scrap for the challenge only. i scrap and think. i scrap with restrictions. i scrap with challenge...

ff up ::: round 2 --> after finishing the round 2 challenge, i tried to feel good by altering something.. and lo and behold.. this came out to be the next challenge!!! well though there are restrictions, i might just have to add some more stuffs to make it valid. but i might have to think of other ways.. creative ways... batman's will!

ff up::: round 3 -->whew. i just got some pat on my shoulder because of what my creation was... well, not that very unique to those who dont know the origin of my work though. but if you knew the real essence of why i did that, then you would understand.. hope the judges would.

but indeed, what i created was just a junk waiting to be spoiled. i would just have to put real stuff in there.. you know real stuff. stealth...
yeah, it was not the pick although everyone thought it would be. but it was not.
i was not expecting because i am not a lucky girl when it comes to bagging awards especially when the judges dont understand what the hell you are explaining about. but really, i am not that lucky ever since. so i might just have to store that thing in my closet. never to see it again.

here comes the ephemera round:: i have always loved vintage, collage and the mixed media art... old, aged, sentiments, memorabilia... but really! i dont know how to execute such ideas!!! whelp!

the last round. i am having a dreading moment here because i dont use multiple photos and i dont do spreads and this is the round that were supposed to do. whelp now all the more!!! i dont know if i am executing the right way. i am not sure if i am doing the right thing with the rules in it. i dont know what a spread is like. can i make 3 papers in 1 spreads??am i wrong ??? definitely i hate spreads i have never done anything like this in my entire scrapbooking life!!! and darn i hate to do multiple pics because i dont have the printer to print those tinee bitty pics or the pics of your size.. those commercial printing shops really take my nerves! whelllpppy !!!

Of Angels and Babies, kaya 4 challenge entry

this is my entry for the kaya 4 challenge: ephemera. though this is more of a collage art, i love the thought of putting aetom's face as the center of focus. i also used cards from dayspring and from robert frederick ltd. ( available at powerbooks, 1 set: 10 assorted cards with envelopes at only 150php, good buy!). 7 gypsies pps and rubons are a must for vintage like layouts. stamps should also be an add on. stickers from scenic route, lil davis and mambi.

imagine the good life

i was supposed to submit this to the IDOL contest with jamie waters as my idol (scraplifted from her) but well, it did not appeal to me so i just have to post it here. i just love her handwriting!


i made this during our GNO at mitch's... wow i am scrappin faster now but sometimes it depends on the mood and the paper and the pics.

materials: rouge de garance papers; daisy d's rubons; scrapworks textured tags; reeves glitter glue.

this picture was taken last christmas.
