Pink and nothing else but pink…;)

Standard

Okay…I admit… I’m a sucker for the color pink.  I love its femininity and its softness.  That’s why I was so glad that one of the layout challenges in pretty paper true stories involves creating a layout using pink as the color scheme. So I took the opportunity to create something girly and pink!  So here’s my take on the challenge!

I used pink papers from DCWV and Paper Designer by Eno greetings.

Hope you all liked it!

Cheers!

Hey everyone!…

It’s a while since I’ve posted on my blog.  Mainly because I was busy making the albums I needed to post…hehe

Anyway,  I’ve finished 3  albums this month and will be posting their pictures maybe this weekend (hopefully the net connection is not slow).

So hope you will enjoy viewing them as much as I have enjoyed making them..

Till this weekend!

Cheers!

Cory

my special thanks…

It’s really amazing when you someone finally acknowledges your craft.  Aside from my loved ones who are my ultimate fans, it is very heart-warming when other people commends you on your art.  I know I am still a newbie and still learning from this craft, but the fact that you liked my layout.

So my special thanks to the Filipino Scrapbookers Challenge Club who chose my layout.  It’s just so sad that you will not be continuing with the layout challenges.  Lucky for me that I was able to win on your last layout challenge…;)  I really loved the prize you sent and I will surely enjoy using those to create other beautiful layouts!

Thanks again for these!!

My take on the challenge, version no. 2!

I so love the black background.  It just makes the picture pop out!  I love the vintage feel of the layout.

The 3D camera sticker from eno greetings adds a perfect touch to my romantic layout.

The ticket, the tags and the title goes well together… it adds a subtle romantic-vintage vibe to the page.

The little vintage stamps are so cute!..

FSCB Challenge # 28 entry no. 1

Standard

Hello guys!

It’s been a while since I’ve created a page layout.  I have been focused on making mini albums lately.  Also I haven’t submitted any entries lately to FSCB. So here’s my entry no. 1 on FSCB Challenge # 28

The FSCB Challenge # 28 sketch

#48-FSCB15

My take on the challenge

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

Pardon for the poor lighting, I was actually in a hurry this morning (must not be late for work!), so I just quickly took some pictures on my finished layout.

Here are some close-ups on the page

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

I used paper and fabric flowers as well as some bead sprays for my corner accent.

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

I layered some bookmark travel diecuts and a journalling tag.  This photo was taken during our boracay trip last december.

So there it is… My entry to challenge #28.  Hope they will like this!…;)

Cheers!

my personal girly calendar….

Standard

Taking a break from making mini’s, I decided to make something to jazz up my table at work.  Actually, in our workplace, each of us are allocated a table calendar but this year the arrival of it was a bit late.  The inner crafty me decided to make one from the old table calendar (creativity and recycling into one!).  It was perfect since I had ordered this DCWV 6×6 paper pad that had the months printed on it.  I also had some scraps left over from my previous projects so it was perfect to it! Along with some flowers, some dressform die cuts, laces, ribbons and other knickknacks’ from my stash, a girly calendar was formed.  So here is the product of my inner crafty me!..;)

Each of the months has a pocket so I could put some items from that month that are memorable and a possible add-on to a future mini that I will be making.

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

For January, I just complemented the colors of the 6×6 paper.  They are mostly in green’s and blue’s.  I added the orange fabric flower as well as the paper roses to pop up the page.

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

Ah February! My favorite month. Aside from being the love month, February is also my birth month (note the special dates on the upper right corner..;)).  I loved that the 6×6 paper is in pink (my favorite color!) I fuzzy cut a flower from the 8×8 paper designer pad by eno greetings. I love the vintagy-feel of those papers! And the flowers are perfect to accent them on this page.

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

For March, it was mostly done in greens to complement the background paper.  What I liked about this is the metal flower on the mid-left side.  I had that embellishment for quite some time and I finally had a chance to use it on this project.  It was perfect accent to my March page.

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 I kept it sweet and simple for the month of April.  But I really loved the pink rosettes!

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

The month of May always reminds me of Santacruzan and Flores de Mayo which celebrated here in the Philippines.  To commemorate these I added the dress form and used the pink laces and ribbons for the dress.

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

The page for the month of June has fabric roses and a butterfly die cut embellishment.  I also fuzzy cut a green paper to act as a corner pocket which I added a tag.

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERAThe month of July has paper and fabric roses and a medium-sized butterfly die cut.

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

I used another dress form die cut for the month of August and added a blue lace to act as a gown.  I loved the script design of the background paper and I think it adds a vintage-romantic vibe when combined with the dress.

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

The design for the month of September is quite simple. I just used a large die cut of a butterfly and placed it on the center of the pocket and added various flowers and gems and butterfly embellishments on the lower left corner of the pocket.  I also stamped on the page to emphasize the calendar itself.

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

For the creepy Halloween vibe of the October month, I used dark-colored embellishments to accent the pocket.

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

I loved the large yellow flower that I embellished on the November page.  I goes well with the background paper and the butterfly and paper roses adds a subtle touch to make it beautiful.

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

December is the most happiest time of the year don’t you think?  With that thought, I accented the page with bright red flowers and a dress form with pink lace for the dress.  The colors blended well and adds life to my page.

There it goes, my finished personal girly calendar.  I admit it’s a bit bulky. I had to use a box of staple wire to act as a paperweight so that it would stand properly and not fall off to the side.   Bulkiness aside, I think it is beautiful.  This calendar now graces the top of my monitor and adds a charm to my work area…;)

Thanks for appreciating!

Cheers!

A black and red inspiration

Standard

I was browsing for some ideas online when I came upon this site, A Creative Operation that has a tutorial on a mini album.  It was so cute that I decide to make another mini album using that technique.  Also, it had a lot of pockets for me to put more pictures in it.  So, here is my take on that mini album.  It still no pictures, I am still thinking what to put in them..:D

 

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERAThe cover of the album.  I just made it in plain black so as to draw attention to the red ribbon and rhinestones on the buckles.

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERAFirst page of the mini album.  Most of the embellishments used are from the card making kit by eno greetings.  The paper line used is from All About Scrapbooking by Hallmark.

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERAThe first page flap.  Most of the photomats are in plain red cardstock.

There it is!…My red and black romantic mini album.  I really enjoyed making this mini album (also, because I’m so inspired…;)) This page is a bit bulky due to the embellishments and can hold many pictures! (yey!) Thanks to the A Creative Operation site for the wonderful and easy tutorial.
