What Did I Get Myself Into...

Besides taking care of the children the last few days, i was so busy working on layouts and other stuff for a few contests i joined...

I already posted my entry for Coordinates Collections' Scrapping With The Stars...From 20 participants in round 1, they chose 10 ladies to go on to round 2...Still have to work on my layouts for the second round though...2 layouts are due every round.

The Survivor challenge at Making Memories For You also started and for round 1, i made 3 cards using flowers that are not plastic and plastic that are not flowers. We still cannot post our entries anywhere so...We, (cookie, christine and pia) are able to move to round 2...The callenge is to do a layout without photo..Challenges are posted every 3 days with the entries due 2-3 days after challenges were posted...2-3 layouts or projects due every week.

So You Think You Can Scrap? no, it's not a question for you but it is the name of the challenge at Ittybittyscrapshack. They held an audition last week and was supposed to choose 20 participants to move on to round 1..But they decided to let everyone join the first round and do the elimination before round 2...For the first round, the challenge is to use the following on our layouts: 1 piece of cs, 2 pcs of pp, buttons, alphabet letters..no ink, paint, stamps, etc...We were given about 5 days to submit..I asked them if we can post our entries here and they said it's ok.. So here it is:

materials used: american crafts pp (play and the goods collection), bazzill bling cs, buttons, adornit carolee's creations foam alphas, the paper studio alphabet stickers, zig, cuttlebug, sizzix die, fiskars 1 inch squeeze punch, fiskars punch(very small circles), uhu

Lookie Here!

I miss blogging but the last few days was spent taking care of the kids esp when we all got sick (*again*)!!! Sorry i wasn't able to reply to all the messages in my cbox, emails, and ym's...Having to meet a few deadlines doesn't help either...will be posting about it later..

I can't wait for spring so we can go out and play in the park...Anyway, last week my husband came in with the mail and when i saw he was holding a box and a large envelope, i held my breath until he handed them to me! Yup! I've been waiting for these: my prize from winning FesTeE december challenge at scrappinkids..Wati, one of the dt member chose my daughter's photo and made a layout for her and made a 6x6 for Isabella too..Francine couldn't believe that there was something for her too! I didn't tell her about it coz i am sure that she would be bugging me about it.


I bought 2 packs of chipboard thickers (giftbox) at my lss a few months ago..I used them first week of december and i was so upset because i had to use glue to make them stick!...i called american crafts and told them about it...they got my add and told me they will send a replacement pack..Not really expecting something, more than a month after i called, i received these! I was surprised coz i was expecting only a pack..thank you American Crafts!

Scrapping With The Stars

Coordinates Collections'version of Dancing With the Stars...Every round, we will be given two stars and do a layout based on their styles...One layout for each star...last week, our stars were Ali Edwards and Mahlin Anderson (DT member of the kit club)...Their style is sooo different from mine that i had to think carefully what to do even while doing household chores ...We need to show our versatility and come up with something original and creative.

(1)I noticed that Ali Edwards' style is a classic and simple one. She does multi-pic layout without matting them and positioning them with the photos touching...She loves handwriting journaling but she also does a lot of computer generated ones on her background paper...Very graphic, using minimal embellishments..She loves using circles and strips of paper too..Her color choices are more on the subdued side...
(materials used: crate paper pp, crate paper die-cut, k@co pp,the paper studio chipboard letters, chalk, metal rim tags (joann), thickers, zig pen, bazzil cs, rub-on(creative imaginations), dmc floss, computer font)

(2)Mahlin's style is the exact opposite of Ali's...She positions the elements on an angle and uses fun and vibrant colors...She also love ric rac ribbons and buttons. She outlines her titles and uses a simple font for them. Most of her layouts are 8x11's so i did one in that size for the first time.

(materials used: the paper studi cs, mme buttons, thickers, narratives, rhonna farrer journaling tag, heidi swapp bling, mme pp, zig, queen@co felt, ric rac ribbon(joann), the paper studio chipboard letters, paint, mm clear overlays)

A Night Of Scrapping

Well, supossedly...Sahrie invited a few ladies for a card-making party at her place... Miss Ivy was our teacher that night and she was so patient with all the giggling going on while she was teaching us (card-challenged ladies) how to do some of her awesome cards! Sahrie, the perfect hostess prepared (well, ordered..hi sahrie!lol!) dinner and provided all the materials for our crop...Thanks to Sahrie, the supplies were over flowing! hehehe...And i am so honored to be able to meet the talented Joy Uzarraga...She is so friendly and down-to-earth! She was making a lyout for Sahrie when i left... I was planning on staying until 12 midnight but mommy duties called...i left before 11pm...*sigh*...We decided to do this a montly thing so our next crop will be on March...
