4th Printed Photobook

Hey, it's been a long time. A lot of things happened so fast for the last three months and I'm still in the process of acceptance and recovery. Anyway...

Although this is a third book of my daughter, it's my 4th time printing a book. Come on and check it out.

It's an 8x8 47 page 94 back to back photobook. I love this one. And of course, everytime I print a book, I always have something to learn and improve for the next time.

Her's a closer look:

And again, the kits I used were from Just So Scrappy, Crazy 4 Monograms, Jady Day Studio, Kristine CB Design, Kristine Aagard, Trixie Scraps, Mye de Leon, some freebie kits, kits from the previous designers I ct'd, templates from Cindy Schneider, Fiddle Dee Dee and some of my own. I used Bohemian Typewriter for the font, most of the time. I love the verse that I used at the back of the photobook. It represents my daughter's whole year.

Sometimes, I'm thinking how hard could it be to make another photobook for a baby boy. Well, I guess it's for me to find out. happy Scrapping!!

Sorry for the quality of the photos, I was too lazy to use my camera so I just used the photos from my phone.

A Week In The Life Coming Soon

Are you a fan of Ali Edward? Well here's for the new A Week In The Life 2013 edition which will start on September, 9th-15th. I already marked my calendar so I could join. And in case, this will be my first time. I've been reading a lot of tips and tricks about doing the AWITL so as to avoid burnt out, hehe. And since I will be doing this digitally, I'm preparing my templates. I want a clean and neat one (not scrappy). The photo is linked to AE's blog for more details.

Check Out My Printed 3rd Photobook!

Hi! I know that I promised on one of my blog post about photobook that I will post some photos, so here they are. Sorry it's late :)

It's a 30 page back to back 8x8 photobook compilation of my daughters 2nd year from June 28, 2011 to June 28, 2012. It's hardbound with paper cover and (thick) vellum (or parchment) covers on the front and back.

The kits I used were from various designers like Kay Miller, Just So Scrappy (JSS), Jady Day Studio, kits from my previous designers I ct'd some free kits. The kit I used on the book cover was from JSS and a free template from Fiddle Diddle Dee. I always put a verse on the back cover, the verse I chose actually represents my daughter's whole year.

I'm still working on her 4th photobook and next in line are our 4 road trips, wedding scrapbook, honeymoon scrapbook and some of the photos I took using my heavy camera. Although it's now taking me very long to come to completion, I'm having fun doing it. I hope that you enjoyed looking. Happy Scrapping!!

Labels For Books And Other School Things

My daughter will be going to school by next year. And I'm having mixed emotions as a first time parent. Kind of the 'first-time-mom-of-a-kid-going-to-school' blues. So as early as now, I'm preparing myself - physically and emotionally. Step by step preparation and getting ready for that big event and change in our lives, I tried to make some labels. Pretty cool huh? Hehe. Anyways here are some of the labels I was able to make. Each label is sized 4x1.5 inches and I placed it on an 8.5x11 page for printing. The font I used is KG Lego House.

I used The Book Club Kit by Thaty Borges. Sorry I don't have a store link for she's in hiatus right now, and her products are off the web as well. Here's her facebook page.

And this one is for her things like pad paper, pencil case and lunch bag. I used School Memories For Little Kiddos by Jady Day Studio.

Again I am not part of Jady Day Studio nor of Thaty Borges' CT. I'm also in hiatus :)
Happy Scrapping!

Busy-ness and 3rd Photobook

I have been very, VERY, very busy. Motherhood and toddlerhood is eating me alive and I willingly welcome the fangs! (I think I've said this before..

So right now I'm completely busy completing my daughter's 3rd photobook. Hurrah for me 'coz I have completed at least 4 layouts since Monday. I'd like to share a couple of layouts.

I love this page. Tee hee. It's neat and clean. I used Butterflies And Blue Jeans by Just So Scrappy. You should really check her out. I'm very much in love with her products. Also, the 3x4 qr code card was a freebie from Tracie Reed.

Another favorite designer of mine, Crazy-4-Monograms. I used her kit called My Hero. I love the elements. They're flexible for any layouts. The letter was a poem (I think) from the web.

This is a free with purchase kit called Doodle Do by Just So Scrappy & Crazy-4-Monograms. Please note, the alpha I used was from the kit I Toadally Love You by Just So Scrappy. The template was from Cindy Schneider Set 149: All Tucked In.

This would be the cover of my daughter's 3rd photobook. I love this page too, tee hee! I used Shabtastic by Just So Scrappy. The template was a freebie from Fiddle Diddle Dee.

Lastly, this will be the back cover of the photobook. Same kit I used for the front cover.

I'm so, so excited to have this photobook printed so I could move on with the 4th photobook. But since my daughter has just turned 3, I have to take one step at a time scrapping.

I am in no way affiliated or a CT member of Just So Scrappy and Crazy For Monograms, I just LOVE their products is all *wink*
Next tim, I'm gonna post some more layouts where I used different designer kits. Happy Scrapping!!!
