These photos were taken in the car with the sun coming in from the window. We were waiting to pick up Francine from school and Bea and I were fooling around with the camera.

I stamped and embossed the birdcage then just cut around it. The cardstock is a little reflective and would sometimes look lighter and/or darker depending on the lighting.

The title is a rub-on and it gave me muscle cramps AND I was really scared that I would mess it up. Swirls and bird were painted with smooch.

You can see how the cardstock looks darker here. It is actually the back of a G.C.D. pp..The front part with the pattern looks so gorgeous! Here are a few close-ups.

Thank you so much for looking!

Card Frenzy

I had a major burst of "card-making mojo" the past 2 days. It's nice to just pull a card out of my drawer when needed and not go to the store. So I made a few blank cards which I can personalize depending on the occasion.

A fan of flowers, ribbons, bling, and girly embellishments, I didn't have any idea how to make a boy card. But these stamps from The Greeting Farm are so cute that they inspired me just by looking at them.

Also my first attempt at using the airbrush system from copics. I should've masked the edges of the tag by not removing the template I used to cut and emboss the cardstock. I used gold metallic brush pen for the helmet, number on the shirt and trims on his clothes. Rest were colored with copic markers..

Next are the "girly" cards..I am so in love with the Twinkle Tots collection from the same company. So adorable!

The chocolate frosting on the strawberry is brown liquid applique. For those not familiar with this, it is like a puffy paint in a pen but thinner and so much easier to apply. But it takes a lot of patience to use because you need a whole day (12-24 hours) to dry. You can leave it smooth and shiny (like what I did here) or you can use a heat gun and it will puff.

I'm pretty sure that by now, you noticed that I used a LOT of faux stitching. I was like under the influence and didn't know what came over me. Maybe because I'm getting impatient waiting for the spare part I ordered for my sewing machine. Here's another one with the faux stitching. I also used tons of foam dots in every card to give a few elements dimension.

Last card is a very simple one. Nothing fancy.

Thanks for looking!


I was trying to re-organize my stuff and saw the big chipboard flourishes from fancy pants..I embossed it with gold UTEE and did my journaling around it. A few spritz of glimmer mist (tattered leather, electric blue and tuscan sun) here and there. I forgot the name of that product from glitz, which I used as a mask with gold and green paint dabbers.

A few close-ups..I wanted to take pictures of these again but it is really hot outside.. :) I put the layout on top of the windshield of our car and it was really easy to take close-up shots but the problem was, there was direct sunlight..You can't have them all! lol..

I dabbed gold smooch paint along the edges of the blue flower

My Sister, The Bride..

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to join the family during one of the most important moment in my sister's life...She understands..I've only seen a few photos from the wedding and I could tell it was indeed a very special day. The venue was in a secluded farm, very serene and low-key. Perfect for my sister and her husband.

I saw this photo from the website of her make-up artist and I knew, I couldn't wait for the official photos. She is so LOVELY! I couldn't stop looking at the photos. I'm so happy for them!

As much as possible, I like to crop my photos so the you can only see the page and not the space around it. But I wanted the whole bow to be seen, so I just forget about cropping it in the way I always do.

The lovely lace was given to me by my good friends Lee and her sister tita Marissa...It is perfect..

I tried staying close to colors of nature and her motif which is green.

Thank you Jeng for giving me permission to use the photos.

A Quick Thank You Card

My husband told me he needs a thank you card this afternoon. I didn't have time to use stamped images and color them with copics so I made a very simple one...

Prima BAP (May)

Love, love, love the flowers from Prima...How can you not love them?

Distressed Floral Tags

I was feeling a little sad last night so I sat down on my scrap table and decided to try altering tags. I've always wanted to make one and I thought, why not make a set. Hope you like them!

A few close-up shots...

"Untitled Layout"

Finished another layout last night. :) I am really hoping Mr. Mojo stays longer this time.
Two of my latest layouts.

I used pearl paint dabbers on the edges of the photos. Francine said she looks like she has snow on her hair. The wood trimmed was unfinished and i had a great time giving it a shabby look using glimmer mists, paint, distress ink pads.

Happy Mother's Day!!!
