Used scraps to make an extra lay out. Thanks again Reg.
Today we made 4 lay outs from Reggie's birthday kit.
Very beautiful and well thought out lay outs.
Karen hand made the paper rosettes
Mica on the tree and on the page.
UTEE on the piece of Chipboard. Used a Maya Kraft doily.

Beautiful doily punch from EK. Glitz stamp and Tim Holtz die cuts.
Thank You Reggie for sharing these beautiful kits with us. Thanks for the help in finishing the lay outs.

I used Iris' Tim Holtz on the edge die and made a continuous strip. My butterfly was pink, but I used black paint, so it will blend with the lay out.

I used a couple of Martha deep edge punchers. Some lace from Iris' previous class. And a new wooden button from All about Scrapbooking. This is a pic of my favourite winery in Napa. V. Sattui.

To Sleep

Well, it's midnight. I am supposed to be sleeping. But so far sleep has eluded me. So, I scrapped.
My hubby found pictures from our engagement. I thought they were lost for good, but now these little treasures are being put into lay outs. So yay!

Using a sketch by Iris. This picture was taken during my brother's engagement party or in Tagalog, pamamanhikan.

My friends and I have this long standing tradition. For our exchange gift during Christmas, we pass on our unused scrap stuff. Because by Christmas, we are always out of budget! Good to know that I am not that inundated with stuff. I mostly have papers and tools. I only have a basketfull of embelishments. So yes, I am in a good place. Next year, I plan on making more lay outs. And here's the clincher, to keep track of how many I make.

While waiting for my hubby watch the Pacquiao fight, I was able to have these made. From Robee's stickers. A sheet of 120 stickers costs 100 pesos. These are tiny enough to fit most of our punchers and other scrap stuff. Best of all, you can choose the design you want. I have two doggies on mine.

The Random Crate Class

Here are 6 lay outs from Iris' class on November 26.
We were so lucky she allowed us to take the class early.

Tips: make it a group effort. Sharon made the die cuts for me.
I put stamps on our papers.
And Iris made the UTEE chipboard element for all of us.
Also, if possible, purchase the flower paper before hand and cut it. That way, you show up with all your flowers cut up already.
Arrive for class early, that way you don't need to panic and have ample time to finish.
Used some pearl mica + clear tar gel on this.
Good thing we shared a pack of those mistable Pink Paislee papers. So pretty when we used distressed inks on them!

Used some embossing ink, dusted pearl powder and then set it with some water spray.
A couple of years later, and taking a class with Iris is still magic.

Loving nantucket

I've always been drawn to pastel colors. I've loved Lilly Pulitzer, worn them 24/7. I love the timeless appeal of Anna Griffin papers. When Pink Paislee came out with these papers, I fell in love. Most of these lay outs have been scraplifted from Two peas.

Not enough

If scrapbooking is my passion. For my dear hubby, it's golf. Used some really old We R Memory papers. Still timeless papers.

finishing up

Some more crate lay outs.
