just so that i could get to my scrapping mojo again, i am trying as much layouts as i can. its been so hard to get scrapbooking into my system but i am really forcing myself to incorporate the feel of it again.
a fun way to create a layout is to take your time... and do it at your own pace. i used the martha stewart punch ( vines ) and it's so cool! you can create borders with it or as an accent. glimmer glam will also enhance and give a vintage feel, just brush it on anything from papers to chipboards.
just did a card using the MME line of papers ( not so current ) coz that's all i have right now lol! anyway, i want to share with you what i did with the Martha Stewart Microbeads and Tinsels. i love it!!! they create dimension on anything and the texture is so candy-y!!
i also love the colors and their containers! made me want to collect them all...
i also used Glimmer Glam ( pink tutu ) on the flower base paper. sprayed Maya Mist on the background paper.
i know i have been neglecting scrapbooking over so many new things like the games at the net or crochet ( i will not give this up though), but right now i would really love to create again. creativity sparks when you open its path again in your life. its your decision and your passion.
my layout using old stash. it's been so long since i got hold of new stuffs too except for the flowers here which i just purchased.
hay... wanted to start scrapping again after a long time of break.. from diversions to domestic duties as a 24/7 mom to four boys, household chores, school works, tutoring them on my own with bilingual subjects... so many works!!! yet i decided to forgo what others would do-- giving up and getting a tutor. i believe in quality education and supervision by parents. i firmly believe that if you can teach your children on your own then do it. i grew up with it so i knew it.
here are some layouts i did, i feel i am starting from zero.
