This is Love

I mentioned in my previous post that I was inspired by the color palette for the Prima Product Picks for the Month and this is what I came up with:

I used a photo of my 2 girls taken last Valentine's day. For this layout I tried out Resist Stamping which was introduced to me by my friend Rita. It is quite challenging to do and I think I need more practice. LOL!

Here's a closer look at my attempt:

Here's a photo showing some layers on the layout. I used some trim, crystals, and of course flowers!

Thanks for looking and have a great week ahead. Can't believe it's March already but I'm looking forward to summer!

Damsel in Distress

Just sharing my layout for Iris Uy's challenge for those who attended her class last January. Her challenge was to create a layout using the left overs from the kit. Here's my layout...

I misted and distressed the edges of the base paper which is a plain white cardstock. Of course I had to do some fussy cutting. I used here a picture of Ally when she was a flower girl at my brother in law's wedding last June. She was quite excited to have make up and get her hair done but she missed her nap that afternoon so she was quite cranky.

Here are some details. I stamped a butterfly image here using 2 colors of distress ink:

I was also able to use a Maya Road pearl pin and a crystal one (don't know what brand coz its the last one).

Thanks for looking!

Its never too late for Christmas layouts!

I've been inspired to create Christmas pages even if its mid February already, LOL! Here's one of them which I made using sketch #7 of GetYourSketchOn. 

I used photos of Julia and Ally taken during Christmas morning last year. I used a mix of Webster's and Basic Grey for this one, plus stickers from 7Gypsies, and a die cut from Pink Paislee. I just love how Christmas papers and embellishments don't get outdated. Some of the stuff I used here are from two Christmases ago.

Don't forget to link up your layout HERE! Deadline is on Sunday, and a prize pack full of goodies is up for grabs! Here's the sketch:

And, here's another Christmas layout. This time photo shows Ally writing her letter to Santa. Love how the photo shows her concentration. Again, I mixed and matched old and new Christmas supplies for this one.

Thanks for dropping by... I'm finishing another layout!

Scrapping with Iris Uy

Last Saturday, me and my scrapping friends had a great afternoon with none other than Iris Uy! She came to our town and taught us some techniques on stamping and misting. We used beautiful Webster's Pages patterned paper, trims, and sparklers too! We also used Pink Paislee Ink Resist patterned paper which is a new fave of mine coz its so easy to use! Here's my output on that scrappy afternoon:

Being a slow scrapper, it felt great to finish these layouts!

GYSO #5 is up!

Can't believe that Get Your Sketch On is now on its 5th week of bringing inspiring sketches for you! Our sponsor for this week is Pink Cat Studio Digi Stamps. Here's the sketch:

Here's my layout! The DT were able to play with some digi images from our sponsor and I'm glad the images match our winter-themed pictures. For the patterned papers, I used a mix of BG Jovial and MME.

You have till the end of the week to link up your layout HERE!
