Inspire Me


Hi everyone! First of all thank you to everyone who sent me warm wishes about my pregnancy. I really appreciate it.

I just wanted to share with you that "Inspire Me" the social network site of Websters Pages is launching today. Please come and join us there. Here is the LINK

Here is the first DT layout I created for Websters Pages. I am just in-love with the soft patterns and colors. I cut out part of a patterned paper and used it to look like a die-cut sheet at the back of the lined paper. This is a picture of Nicole early in the morning... still sleepy and fresh from dreaming:)

Other materials: Making Memories metal, Foofala Letter stickers, Prima Hybrid Clock element (Gina Marie Huff)

Hi friends!! I have something to tell you....I SAW...


YAY!!!! It finally happened. I hope I have a boy this time. I'm five weeks pregnant so I'm trying to take it easy now trying to balance everything. I'm also loaded with several events to organize and complete plus of course I NEED to scrap!!! Anyway I'm just really happy. Hope you all have a great day!

By the way, the papers, tape, flowers, bird, and the felt die-cut under the photo are by Prima and this layout is based on a sketch by the super talented Janine Langer!!! The photo itself has some digital elements from Prima Hybrid (A Little Magic by Vera Lim and Painted outline Font by Kim Christensen)

I love to use acrylic paint in my pages but I wanted a more textured look. I recently got a bottle of gel medium and tried to mix equal parts of the medium with paint. The result is paint that goes on thick without sacrificing the color of the paint. I waould like to share with you a layout I made using gel medium and acrylic paint. You can see the texture at the edges of the layout. I also tried this for stamping and I loved the texture and dimension of the stamped image as compared to an image stamped with ink.

Layout for a friend

I am so honored and thrilled that Kristina Nicolai White spotted this layout and selected it as the featured layout at the members gallery of twopeas. I made this layout for my friend Arlene David. I used the Mother's Day kit of Scrap-n-crop and just added some bits and pieces from my stash. Arlene was a beautiful pregnant woman! We were all so envious of how pretty she looked even when she was just a few weeks due to giving birth. Here she is with her husband Doy.

We are still doing some Go-Green projects over at Prima so I decided to make a mother's day project using one of the packaging tin cans of Prima. This was so easy and quick to make. Just sharing a simple idea for a project which you can make for your mom or for yourself.

Happy Mother's Day!

And here is a layout I did of myself and Nicole using the new Morning Song papers from Prima. I wanted to make the layout look more childlike so I hand drew some clouds on the papers and cut them out. This was the featured layout at Twopeas last May 22. I was grinning from ear to ear when I saw it. A lot of times, the layouts that I'm not so crazy about are the ones that get noticed.

I have been such a lousy blogger these past weeks and I am so sorry for not being able to catch up on everyone's blogs. I miss finding inspiration in the blogs. I just have so much work now with our events business that my days seem to keep getting shorter and shorter.

Anyway I just hope everybody is doing great.

I'm sharing a few layouts I made with the May kit of Badgirls. We worked with a lot of Prima Papers and American Crafts products.
