It's almost time for Scrapfest 4! I'm so excited about this event. And for the first time, I don't have an event on that day!! So I can really enjoy myself this time. I'm into events, so most of the time, my work is scheduled at the same dates as that of scrapbooking events. The Scrapfest will be this coming Saturday already. You can find the details of the event here.

The October Kit at Badgirls

I loved working with the October kit of Badgirls. I received my kit pretty early this time but I still scrapped night after night working on the LOs and the project cause the kit was so gorgeous!

We just uploaded our LOs, so I'm replacing the sneak peaks with my favorite layout from the kit.

Prima Goodness

I just received a box full of goodies from Prima Marketing! It was loaded with flowers, Say it With Jewels, Rub-ons, a gorgeous journaling notebook, lots of papers, and even the Prima Paintables! I'm excited to play with these beauties. Thank you so much to Tammi and the whole team of Prima Marketing for their generosity.

American Crafts at Scraplovers

We worked on the Metropolitan Line of American Crafts for the Scraplovers upload. Here is one of the layouts I made for the reveal. I love this photo of Nicole. She loves dogs but her grandma won't have any in the house because of Nicole's allegries. So now, Nicole has to content herself with toy dogs:)

Looking forward to sweet OCTOBER AFTERNOONS...

October Afternoon is a new company that just debuted at CHA. They have gorgeous stamps, rub-ons, and paper. They have stuff which I would love to use in my pages. Plus the extremely talented Michelle Guray is designing for them. So when I saw that there was a DT call, I really made it a point to apply and I have been lurking in the pub forum of Two Peas to check if there was any news. Call day came and I got no call. Toots have been posted - and still no call. And then I opened my email September 6 in the afternoon not expecting anything (cause I usually receive international emails in the early morning due to the time difference) and saw this...

Hi Iris,

I am writing to welcome you to the October Afternoon Design Team! :D

We are contacting our international members last (only because I had
to figure out the time zone differences and arrange a time to place
the calls). But then, I don't seem to have your phone number. :)

We absolutely *love* your work! I am so happy to have you on our
team! We will post the entire DT list on our website once we hear
back from you and one other international member. In the meantime,
you do *not* have to keep this a secret! Please feel free to tell
anyone that you like!

Welcome to October Afternoon!

Kim :D

WOW!! I was shrieking all over again. My family has gotten used to that by now. I'm so excited!! This is my first manufacturer DT. I have been having a lot of "firsts" in the scrapping industry lately and I am just so thankful to the Lord for blessing me this way. I just love this craft so much and this really means a lot to me.

I can't wait to get to know the other designers who are all so talented and accomplished. Wow, still can't believe it.

Collage Press at Scrapbukan

I love Collage Press. If you have not tried playing with the Seeds line, I think you should. The colors are rich and the patterns so beautiful. Here is one of the LOs I created for Scrapbukan. Please visit the site to see the creations of my co-designers Ria and Pia.

Oh by the way, our picture was taken by my good friend and co-designer Pia Lopez!

Badgirlskits Reveal

This assignment was probably the toughest I have had in a long time. I love the kit of badgirls and the products are soooo beautiful. However, our post office seems to be having some issues in delivering parcels. My kit was sent air priority and was supposed to have been delivered to me in 10 days max. But what happened was, I got the kit in 18 days!!! Too late already for the upload in the Badgirls gallery. Just to finish all three LOs and the project at the soonest possible time, I scrapped straight for SIX HOURS! No rest, and just a light snack. After that I did not want to look at my supplies.:) But that lasted only for a couple of hours. I'm back to dreaming about the next products I'm gonna play with :)

Here is one of the LOs I made. Please visit the Badgirls site to view all the layouts created by the design team.

I came home today to FIVE BIG BOXES filled with scrapbook goodies from the sponsors of the Memory Makers Master 2008 Contest. I was so happy! I could hardly believe all the stuff that was coming out of the box. Our dining room table was not even enough to hold the prizes. The rest were placed in the sofa.

There is obviosly more than I can use here so I will sort through the stuff, separate the duplicate items and those which I have already and I'll raffle it off as a RAK. Just give me some time to organize it. :)

I'm happy and so is Nicole!! She had a grand time pretending that the box was a boat. :)
