Pretty Paper Studio: Scrapbooking with Silhouette Cameo

Hello!

I have my newest projects for Pretty Paper Studio up on their blog. The focus is about Silhouette Cameo.


I created 3 layouts




Check more about these layouts and how I created the first two layouts (coz I think the last one is a no-brainer layout design?? lol!) You can see the list of materials I used. I used cut files from Just Nick Studio for the second and third layout. You can see more cut files on the Just Nick Studio store.

Don't forget the "Show us what you made" contest too! It is running from February until the end of April. The details are at the end of my post. I hope you join us, can't wait to see your projects!

And this is the layout I created just for this blog hop

I created an ombre effect using watercolors. I diluted the watercolor as I go near the bottom of the cardstock to achieve the effect. Then I used another white cardstock as the base of the layout, to sort of highlight the pink ombre cardstock I made.
If you will notice, I mainly used pink, stripes and polka dots in my layout.
That's because these are my favorite color and patterns. Quite a simple page but I liked how it turned out.
I hope you liked it as much as I do!
Now, yYour next stop is Reka's blog

My Prima Planner "Breathe" setup

Hello!

I'm so excited to be sharing my first Pretty Paper Studio blog post for 2017 and my first ever Prima planner!

 
I just love the rose gold hardware in this planner!

You can check more about my post in the Pretty Paper Studio blog
I have to note, though, since I still consider myself a novice in terms of decorative planning, my post is quite simple. But I believe I've tackled the basics for beginners like me.

I hope you check it out!

Holiday projects (belated post)

Hello everyone!!!
EEEkk it's 2017 already! I can't believe it's really here!
I have lots of great things coming this year and I hope you will still join me though I neglected this blog for almost 2 months lol I am usually on Instagram, I find it much easier to post and share my projects there but I know I shouldn't be neglecting my blog like that :) I will rectify that this year and keep this up to date as much as possible.

Anyways, I want to share the projects I created for Just Nick Studio the last 3 months of 2016. I think these projects deserve to be posted here on my blog lol!

Okay, first on the list is this beautiful page using Pretty Little Studio Woodland collection.. I love love this collection <3 p="">
A simple layout with a little bit of watercolor on the background and cut file leaves. I used the Woodland collection by Pretty Little Studio.



I used several cut files on this layout. Let your light shine and leaf cluster. Find more about this in my post on the Just Nick Studio blog.



Next is this page, "Grateful, thankful"
I used a variety of papers and embellishments here from different manufacturers. More about this page on this post.


 Then I changed gear and made these holiday tags instead of layouts. More about this on this post.
and last but not the least are these decorated gift wrappings. You can find my post here.
-Graphic 45 gift wrapper, 8x8 papers-


That's it for now!
See you next time!

Happy crafting,

Fly high

Hello everyone!
Sharing this page I created using Just Nick Studio cut file and Pretty Little Studio "Here comes the sun" collection

I just love every bit in this collection because of my favorite color - pink! :)
I like that there is also some pop of other pretty colors. 


I used the Henna cut file for my page. I cut it apart and placed them as you see in the image below.

Another thing I liked about Pretty Little Studio is you can use the packaging coz it's so pretty!
See the polka dot pink over white background? That is a packaging I recycled and used on my layout

I used foam tapes to add dimension to some of the die cut pieces


 

Here are some more close up shots of my page
One last thing I did was brushed watercolor in the edges of the white background to make the whole page pop.

Thanks for dropping by!

Happy crafting,

Clique Kits September Pep Rally

Hello everyone!
Welcome to the September Pep Rally


Today, we're going to share projects created with the September kit, "Moon Child" featuring Kaisercraft "Boho Dreams" collection, Kesi Art, Fancy Pants Designs, Pretty Little Studio, Dear Lizzy, Doodlebug Designs and Clique kits exclusives.

This is bittersweet for me because this is my last post as a Clique Kits Design Team member. I want to thank everyone in Clique kits for the chance of being part of a wonderful team! I loved the 2 years I've been on. It is truly a unique and inspiring journey with all of you. To the new design team, I wish you all the best!

So, on to my projects! :)

"Document today"
When I first saw this dreamcatcher cut file, I knew I wanted to use a photo of Margaret sleeping. This is just one of the many photos I took while she was taking a nap. I could make a whole album just using photos of her sleeping lol! That is the only time she is not moving around, enabling me to capture her, sweet and angel-like lol!

Here are some close up shots of the page
1 sheet of this floral paper is not enough for me. I love fussy cutting and I was able to make more than 2 layouts using this paper. I just had to "strategize" placement and page design to maximize one sheet lol!


"Take time"
For my second layout, I used a series of selfie photos I took using my phone camera. Margaret liked looking at herself when I show her the phone. She would make faces, smile and laugh. She would be curious and would pinch my face, nose, mouth, eyes, etc. I love moments like this, our mommy-daughter bonding time.
