Days of Our Lives, Creating a Keepsake

I've heard about Project Life some times ago, but never get interested to make one.

But, after my baby #3 turned 2 and off of his breastfeeding tantrum, I now have more spare to time to waste. He is not as demanding as before, so as his tummy is full and siblings are around to play with him, he will let Mom plays with computer.

So, I tempted to try to journal our lives.

Using Tracey cute birdie kit, I made this week#9 page:


And, finger crossed I will be diligent enough to collect our memories throughout the year 2013 into 52 pages. I wish.

And, I have a freebie, you can have the template I made for this page. It's not flattened (layered PSD file) so you can use clipping mask to maintain the shape. I also add an extra bonus download, a piece of vellum paper stitched under a ribbon for journaling purpose. Click on the pictures to enlarge.

Thank you. God bless.

Join SSUC & New Freebie From Me To You

Week ago, I joined Sunny Side Up Creations as DT member. This is a crafter group (digital or traditional) with biweekly challenge. And, they also have blog, so you can see their previous challenge. This group accommodates different types of crafters, i.e: face & body artist, cross-stitch, painter, and also bead makers. What a group of wonderful ladies to join.

The main reason I join this group, because I need to challenge myself to create some new kits, so The Sweetest Things, my baby kit, will sit together with its 'siblings'. LOL.

The first challenge I take is to make layout from the swatches provided.
All I need to do is choosing at least three colors from the palette. I chose four of it, as you can see in my layout below.

It's a photo frame, made using elements from The Sweetest Things, and for the paper I made new paper pack based on the palette colors provided.

You can have this picture frame if you like it. Just follow the link provided in the bottom of this post. It's a transparent PNG file, so you can insert your picture or anything you like into the felt frame.

Thank you. God bless.

Will You Weather Your Wheater Whatever The Wheater?

I love this tongue twister rhyme:
"Whether the weather be fine
Or whether the weather be not
Whether the weather be coldOr whether the weather be hot
We'll weather the weather
Whatever the weather
Whether we like it or not."


Try it. It's amusing. LOL.

Tracey from Clever Monkey Graphics together with Valorie Wibbens created a collab kit named "How's The Weather". Here's the preview:


And I knew that I have a photo that goes well will the kit.This is baby#3 checking the rain when he went to playground and it started to rain just as we came.

Don't forget to try the rhyme.

Thank you, God bless.

Photoless Layout

A digiscrap layout without any photos attached? Yes, it is possible.





The first time I got this kit called Put A Bird On It by Clever Monkey Graphics (Tracey Monette), and when I found there were birdies lining on a string, I was thinking about a photoless page. A page about uniqueness, about the celebration of uniqueness.

So I made this one out from the kit, a photoless page with a great quote (the wordart is also made by Tracey):


So, why don't try make yourself a photoless page and have fun with it.
