Celebrating Graduations

Happy Birthday Daddy! I want to blog today to remember that it's your special day there in heaven. 

With that, I just want to stay at home. Weekends are so precious for a working Mom... there should not be a single moment wasted! After all the home chores, I see to it that there are still energy left to scrap and create. Last weekend, I made 4 pages for my two boys. Last school year was very memorable for them because they both graduated -- Luigi from college with a degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management and Lorenzo from grade school.


I almost lost track of my scrapbook things. I don't have new stash now since it has been a while since I went shopping in the mainland. I still love using Simple Stories, buttons, cardstocks, DMC threads and foam tapes. I just want to keep all these memories...

Keep on creating and TFL!

Georgina's 3rd Album

It's a national holiday today in the Philippines and I'm just staying home to mess up my scraproom! Through the long weeks, I finally finished Georgina's tones of photos. Georgina's pages are my stitched series, so you can imagine the time I spent in making them. Here are a few of my favorite creations... only for George!

I used American Craft cardstocks, chipboard for my titles, DMC threads, mists and inks, buttons and assorted pattern papers. I just love being a part of this little girl's memory making. I wish she grows up to be a witty and healthy little piglet, hahha!

I don't know if there are still people hocked on Scrapbooking, well... I just want to wish everyone A HAPPY MEMORY MAKING always!

2016 Project Life... Done!

Hello fellow crafters!

Summer means catching up time for my scraps and other crafts,  YaHoo for that! Finally, I'm done with my Project Life for last year. I think the piling up of photos for the current year motivated me to move my hands to finish my last year's backlog. I just love the memory making all the way... lookie!

Eversince, I do my Project Life on a monthly manner, when others normally do theirs on a weekly theme. Since I went back to work, I haven't done much 12x12 layouts but instead I found Project Life much exciting in capturing all my family"s memory making. My basic supplies for this year's batch is my favorite Simple Stories' Daily Grind kit, some washi tapes, a lot of buttons, stamping and cardstocks. There is no really good or bad way on doing Project Life, it's basically keeping your memories alive for the coming generations of your family to see. That's what I love most in scrapbooking!

So, happy SUMMER creating!
TFL as always!

Off from Work for Four Good Days...

It is Holy Week in the Philippines!

Holy Thursday until Easter Sunday are official holidays off from work... and it is just PERFECT to stay at home and reflect on Jesus Christ's own walk thru life. For me, reflection was done yesterday during the family tradition of Pabasa (8-12 hours of singing the passion of Christ). Today is Holy Thursday, and its ME time I declare!

My mind is battling over repotting my plants or scrapping my tons of photo backlogs. Hubby told me to repot my succulents and cactus late this afternoon, so I guess I have to really stay up stairs and start playing with my scissors and cutters. Here's sharing my two loves at the moment...

... and the FUN starts now!

Dusting my Zutter

In a few weeks from now, summer will be officially here in the Philippines. So this means I need to dust off my scraproom again. Its the time of year when I find more time to stay upstairs and keep my hands and creative juices flowing. Well, I'm starting off with a "rush" guest book for the debut of a high school classmate's daughter. My Zutter is out to play!

CJ at 18! I used here cardstocks for its pages, DCWV's The Birthday Wishes Stack, K & Company paper flowers and AC Thickers puffy letter sticers. Happy 18th Birthday CJ, hope this little book gives you lots of happy memories. 

My creative cap leans to sewing and gardening this past few weeks. I am hoping to be back sitting in my scrap haven very soon... so please stay tuned!
