And these are some close-ups of the finished project:

I had some patterned paper from last year that I haven't used and are now a little outdated (casualties of hoarding). I was very inspired to do weaving for some reason so that's what I did.

I got this idea from a magazine to make shapes and layering for outdated papers. And so that's what I did. All the shapes are freehand cutting.

This is our actual street address in Manila.

I can finally post my layout for the first ever Pinoyscrapbookers Round Robin Challenge. And how cool is it that the challenge was featured in the Scrappin' Mom's Scrapbytes E-zine! Please visit the site here to see the creativity that spanned for almost 6 months!
It's just today that I read the whole article regarding for the Challenge and I almost fell in my chair when I read my name as a special mention. In a way, Ria was right - I was always almost called by my teachers not because I was an out-of-the-box thinker but because I was really talkative... haha... Thanks to those who have appreciated my interpretation. I'm looking forward to the next challenge! And kudos to everyone who have participated.

Materials: Patterned Papers: Basic Grey, My Mind's Eye, Luxe Designs; Cardstock: Bazzill; Alpha Stickers: American Crafts; Stamps: October Afternoon & Technique Tuesday; Stamping Ink: Technique Tuesday and Tsukineko; Ribbon: Maya Road; Rhinestones: Kaiser Crafts; Thread: DMC; Pen: Zig; Others: staple wire and foam dots.
So far, I have finished one mini album - which was a Basic Grey bracket album. I have so far covered 3 (haha... no pictures to showcase yet). I really like the chipboard album from Francheville - hope I spelled it correctly - they are currently available at Spotlight.


This is a 6x6 white chipboard album - the cover is actually a spin-off of an Ali Edward's project. I'm still in the process of collecting and capturing pictures of my current favorite things. I'll post the finish album once it's done.

So far my materials are: Chipboard album: Francheville; Laser diecut: KI Memeories; Transparency: Hambly; Chipboard Bracket, alpha stickers: American Crafts: Fabric alpha: Scrapworks (yep! I still have those!); Patterned Paper: Me & My Big Ideas; Pen: Uniball Signo & Zig; Old Script Stamp: Purple Onion; Stamping Ink: Tsukineko; Glimmer Mist: My Tattered Angels


This is an 8x8 white chipboard album that I completely painted with acrylic and crackle medium. I actually did this the long method - see I actually painstaikingly did all the pages day by day, first covering the pages in red acrylic paint, applying the crackle medium, then cream acrylic paint. Once the crackle started to show and the cream acrylic dried, I applied glimmer mist (I soooo love this stuff!). I was able to find a booklet full of oriental images at MWL used for ATCs and I thought it was really befitting to the current project I have. Marian, my friend, saw this mini-album and she's begging me to make one for her - I told her sure, as long as she pays for the materials! haha..
This album will be all about my Singapore experience. See how time flew by - I've been here for almost a year now! I still miss home like crazy. I want to finish this before I hit exactly a year (April 24), I think that this will be a good visual diary of my life while living in another country. I'll post the finish project soon.

So far my materials are: Chipboard album: Francheville; Paints: Making Memories; Crackle Paint: Derivan; Glimmer Mist: My Tattered Angels (see how much I love this stuff!); Old Script Stamp: Purple Onion; Stamping Ink: Tim Holtz; Die Cut: Jenni Bowlin; Alpha stickers: American Crafts; Sticker: 7Gypsies: Button: Autumn Leaves; Ribbon: May Arts; Wood Flourish and Rhinestone: Kaiser Crafts; Glitter: Stickles
