a BAG full of surprises…

Standard

Hey everyone!

I’m here again to show you another one of my creations.  It’s a mini album inspired from Kathy Orta’s Purse Albums. It’s made of chipboard and the papers I used were mostly from Eno Greetings (the 8×8 Birthday Flowers Paper Designer Pad and the Polka Paper wrapping book and some 12×12 from the Elegant Flowers Paper Designer).  I made this album for my cousin’s birthday.  I just made the pages simple since she is not a Scrapper like me.  So here’s the completed album!

Hopefully my cousin enjoyed this album because I really enjoyed making them.  I bought most of the paper used in this project from the Bee Happy Craft Store.

 Thanks for viewing my post!

a cute gift for a HAPPY fairy…

Standard

Occasions are a great excuse for me to make mini’s. Whether it be for myself or as a gift.  Mini Albums are great gifts to give since the recipient knows that you had worked hard on making it and it gives a personal touch that store-bought gifts lacks. My niece had just turned one.  I know she may not be able to appreciate this gift I made but when she grows up, she could look back into and appreciate the effort her tita made…:D

So here are pictures of the HAPPY mini album I made as a gift to my niece, Zhia Amber…:)

Most of the colors in this album are in the shades of blue.  I also mixed different techniques in creating the album.  I used layering techniques, stamping, tags, and many others that when all put together, creates this lovely album perfect to house the pictures of the love of my life…;)

There it is!… My finished album!  I used the 6×6 paper pad stack from All About Scrapbooking and the Wrapping Paper from Eno Greetings.  The tags are from the 12×12 Storyteller paper from crate paper.  I also used some lace, paper roses, some beads and rhinestones to accent them.

I’ve already shown this to him and he LOVED it!

Till next time!

Cheers!

All about me…part 1

Standard

December 2013 was very memorable for me.  First, I had my first ever plane ride (hehehe), Second, I was able to treat my mom for a vacation and the best thing, we went to…..BORACAY!!!.. Three days of sand, surf and fun…:D

It was also very amazing since it was our first out-of-town vacation with my boyfriend (ayeeeeeeee).

I made sure to takes lots of pictures for our souvenirs. Lots of pictures also means lots of ideas for scrapbook page. So, to start of, here is one of the mini albums I made just for the pictures of this vacation. This first album contains mostly my pictures.  I plan to make each of us (my mom, my boyfriend) an album to make us recall our adventures there.

New Year…New post

Standard

December was the busiest month for me last year. It was also one of the best month for me!… I finally had the chance to travel outside our beautiful city.  As a gift for my mom (mostly for myself) we went to the amazing island of Boracay!!!…:D

Well anyways, because of the trip preparation and other important stuff that needs to be accomplished (i.e. office stuff, gift buying, ect.), I am way behind in writing posts in here.  Since lately I have been into mini albums, most of my upcoming posts will be about them.  To start the ball rolling, here is one of my finished albums!

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERAI was trying to be creative in some of my Christmas gifts this year.  I made this album for the daughter of my high school classmate, Glaiza.  Actually, her daughter is my godchild and I wanted to give her something that she could put some of her pictures in a fun way.  This is a mini backpack album that I made using the tutorial from scrapbook-crazy.com

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERAThe back portion of the bag

I just made the album simple and sweet using mostly pinks and pastels for the color of the pages.  GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERAThe front little pocket

The front little pocket in front of the backpack can be used to store little journaling card or little notes and small pictures.

So here are the pictures of the inside pages of the mini album
