I can’t believe I finished these three books! Thanks to Aggie’s help and the free credits from Artscow, I had the inspiration and strength to rush them during Holy Week. Paying $23 for three 8×8 photo books is a good enough reason to start. But the thing that drove me the most is that I want these done before I give birth at least. I know that once the baby is here, not only I won’t have much free time to spend in front of the computer but also we’ll have a new batch of photos that will need to be digi-scrapped and printed.
I’ll post more screenshots here but you can click on the album covers to see the whole set.
I love the Baby Invitations from the Cards-411 website. The designs are not only unique but so cute you can’t help but feel excited about someone else’s baby too. Which is basically the reason why parents or friends throw a baby shower anyway! The right baby invitation wording can go a long way too and if you’re worried that you don’t have the gift of words, Cards-411 can help you with that.
Check out all their invitations baby at http://www.cards-411.com. You can get proofs emailed to you within one hour during business day. Perfect for last-minute parties as they also print and ship the same day you approve the proof.
I’ve been trying my best to scrap one layout daily.
Mich and Aggie are right. Scrapping is the best way to relieve stress. I also like how I get a chance to re-visit old photos and remember the moments behind them. I usually forget our photos as soon as I’ve downloaded it from the memory card and posted them on my blog. Now, I found another way to go back in time and I’m definitely having a blast!
Yay! I was able to finish two.
I’ve been feeling really bad about things (see earliest post) so I’ve decided to cheer myself up by making some layouts. Plus, digiscrapping is a good warm up whenever I need to design a website for a client.
Will update flickr for the credits.
Spent half the day organizing my kits. I wasn’t even 1/4 done when I saw some old fab kits and I felt that I have to use them asap.
I’ve been wanting to scrap these photos ever since Sherwin took them. The little girl was wearing a dress again so she looks nice and cute with her “chop chop” bangs.
Just sharing some photos from my recent night out with the girls! I rarely go out because I always feel guilty leaving the little girl alone. However, I haven’t seen my girlfriends for almost a year and a half so I planned the whole post-birthday celebration. We had so much fun. I’ve forgotten how good it feels to talk about men, relationships, clothes and silly gossips.
No paid opps, no deadlines at work, no sidelines, no backlogs and no Sandy (she’s playing in the other room).
I decided to organize my freebie kits and old photos to get the creative juice flowing. The result is below. I had fun scrapping again even though I’m not crazy about the final output. Oh well, I just needed something to keep me goin’.
Hopefully, I can keep it up this month so I can resume working on the little girl’s first year photo book.
I’m still working on Sandy’s first year book and now on my 4th month (hurray). However, I feel so uninspired and pressured to finish it especially now that she’s turning two in four moths. I got tons of freebie kits to work with but since I’ve started earning from blogging, I want to spend some of them to buy new kits.
Just take a look at this one:
It’s sooo pretty and girly and cute! There are tons more that I like but I want to list them down first so I can choose wisely. I have this tendency to buy in bulk whenever I shop online that I’m afraid I might spend all my earnings on kits lol.
I found time to scrap after all.
No matter how old or how successful we are, we will always need our mothers.
the first nights with sandy were so hard. i haven’t had any sleep for three days and I hurt my back trying to breastfeed. when you visited the third day, I can’t help but break down and cry. you laughed at me and told me that everything’s gonna be just fine. this photo was taken the night you slept over so you can take care of sandy.
you were right. sandy has grown up so fast and i’m proud to say that i’ve gotten better as a
mom. still … just because i’m a mom, doesnâ€™t mean I wonâ€™t be needing my own mom anymore.
Happy Mother’s Day to all mommies!
I haven’t had time to scrap lately, what with all the design tasks/contests and paid post coming my way. Sandy’s yaya, Ate Shel left us already so I really need to perfect my time management skills.
I saw this really cute QuickPage made from the In Memory of Miles Kit and decided to make a wallpaper for my desktop.
The TOU for the quickpage is to pay it forward so I’m gonna design a header for Jane’s blog.
