Hello, I know it's been a while, due to family matters I was MIA for almost a month and now I am back wanting to share some new layouts I had just finished. This layout "Always" is for my baby Dillon and my God son Christopher. This pictures are taken right after we went to enjoy the snow and had eaten @popeyes. It is just a random pictures of these two, but I love it because it's amazing to see them grow and still be close.
Even when we live about an hour apart, we (Christopher's mom) try to spend as much time together so that our kids will grow up close together. After almost 15 years, they are close as ever...
This layout has several different brand of items, from 7Gypsies, PaperStudios, and others. Next time I'll be posting pictures of all the items I used to make a layout. Some layouts will consist of few items, but sometimes, when you use layering techniques, it could consist more than 10 items on one layout. I apologize for not listing everything here. I will next time.
Most of my layouts will consist of mix media. I tried to make this layout to be masculine with a touch of dark undertone. I love all the colors from soft to dark, it shows that my boys are growing to teens as such getting serious in a sense of not playing like little boys anymore. If you have any questions please let me know and all comments are appreciated. Thank you.
Christmas 2016 was amazing, and I am not being bias because we were hosting Christmas (ok a little bias). It was a lot of fun seeing the whole family again. We pretty much only get to see the whole family every 6 months, so it is always a blast when we get together, specially around the holidays.
My layout consist of Christmas theme with green and red, but I love using some pastels of pink and blue. I used Megan Marshall cut out images to embellish my layout and it fit perfectly with my picture. I love this picture because my kids are so big now and almost as tall (short) as me. Time really do fly fast.
When it comes to my layout, I try to make them interactive by including some hidden tags for journaling. This layout was simple and very fun. I hope you enjoy it, thank you for stopping by and your comment is appreciated.
My layout for today is a picture of me and Isabel enjoying the snow. I made it my mission to always take pictures of my kids. Growing up with rarely having pictures of me, I feel like I don't want my kids to feel what I felt when I was young, unwanted because there were no pictures me. So, I take pictures as much as I can because I know one day, these pictures will come rarely in between.
I love this picture because I took this right after she was eating her Oreo cookies. Even when cold, Isabel will never say no to snacks. As you can see she still have cookies on her teeth.
I used the images by Megan Marshall and I just love them. I am not just saying that because I am one of her designer for Little Hot Tamale Creative Squad. I love these prints because they are so adorable that matches my winter theme layout. I also used some acrylic paint with stencil technique to add that extra pop to the layout. We are planning to go back and enjoy the remaining snow days and hopefully capture more memorable moments. Thank you for visiting and your comments are greatly appreciated.
I finally decided to jump into the planner wagon. Planner today is really hot in craft community. There are different types and sizes of planner. The difference between the planner before and the planner now, is that the planner today are tailored to the planner. You can emblish them, add images and pictures, to make your planner memorable, and interesting.
You can even color, and stamp on it. The planner really motivate you keep using them because they are just to pretty to look at.
My planner is none other than Heidi Swapp. I love her planner because its so pretty and I love the simplicity, and versatility. Aside from the planner to remind you of your upcoming event, it also function as a journal. So by the end of the year and you look back from the beginning, the planner becomes a keepsake, a memory keeper.
Check out my video for my planner for the month of January. Thank you and your comments are greatly appreciated.
It has been a couple of days since I posted a new layout. Today, my layout is a picture of me loving this snowy season. In southern California, snow rarely happens, which means you have to go to the mountains to enjoy the snow, and that is if there are any snow. With the drought, snow season is really hard to come by in Southern California. So even if we only get to enjoy snow once or twice a year, that is an epic event for the whole family.
As you notice most of my layouts right now are inspired by layering concept...I love to keep my layouts simple, with a single photo and focus all into that photo. I just got asked to be part of a design team by Little Hot Tamale Creative Squad by Megan Marshall The die cuts are her design and I just love it. I am into pink and blue fever so I am loving everything. I incorporated her die cuts with other embellishments.
These die cuts are just so cute!!! It can be difficult to incorporate die cuts into a layout because you can get lost with the different embellishments. But Megan Marshall die cuts made it really easy for me because her color scheme and the images are within the photo that chose for this layout.
Making layouts is really not that hard because there are so many things that can help you produce the type of layouts you want, but to make a layout unique, you have to put a stamp of your own uniqueness that speaks who you are and what the image you want to say. Maybe incorporating your own hand writing, or using paints that gives an extra pop to your layout. The end goal of making scrapbook layout is enjoyment. Did you enjoy making the layout and do enjoy looking at it. It is for you and no one else, that is the motivation for every layout. I hope you like my new layout. Comments are appreciated. Thank you.
