Eyes Delighted Moment

By this time of the year we may be "restricted" to white snow wonderland or that favorite cozy flurry hat, mittens and scarf in our closets.
Not necessarily. We too can always think beyond these images and remember how delightful can be a nice picture of flowers, yes - in the end of December.
There are many places in the world where celebrate hot Decembers with plenty of sun and flourished gardens.
By saying this, to the card makers, scrapbookers and paper crafters that visit me in here...I just want to wish you a COLORFUL 2010, may your next projects be filled with DELIGHTFUL ideas and you have a WONDERFUL time spreading JOY and LOVE through your creativity - to your friends, fans and family.

Then, God Blessings!

My "Brand New" idea - MBNI project #001(SKETCH)

I had an different idea this morning.
After playing with my son last night, inking and stamping his little hands on colonial white cardstock, I woke up with this - to create a "whole year" mini album - that would hold just his hand-printed images... stamped monthly (in the same day of each month), with different ink colors onto CW cardstock and the coordinated color CS paper (from CTMH papers collection).

To use black color CS mat to match my hand written journaling spot (w/black marker), on each of the 6" x 6" layout page.
Then simply accent to embellish.
Will probably make an album by myself (maybe a simple cardboard covered with patterned paper?) - to keep these cute 12 pages.

I loved the idea right after it got into my mind.
So...hope to get more ideas soon - and this is the #001 of the 50 I'm planning for 2010/2011. Let's see what will inspire me during this new phase of my creations.

Will let my imagination to lead me.

My Baby is 3...

Happy Birthday, sweetie!

This is all about primary colors. And it's so everyday of our lives now because of my little one.
All colors, shapes and kid's stuff. Just look what he did...
I'm always inspired by his cute and funny toys, books and clothes.
Just love them!

Today's project is something made from this inspiration, and it is just right to celebrate the 3rd Birthday of my son.

Love you so very much. Can't kiss and hug you enough.

Project Review: Easter Layout

These pages were made to tell about the day we celebrated the Easter (March-2008) in a fun, different way. By the morning we went to our church for the egg hunting (my baby's #1 egg hunting!) - it was such a beautiful sunny day!
About 2 hours later we had a brief lunch, got all thing set, then headed to Boreal Sky place. How fun! This was my baby's #1 snow playing too!

The featured scripture is PROVERBS 16:9.

Supplies: Chipboards(K&Company), patterned papers(American Crafts), cardstock (the Paper Company and DCWV), ribbon (Offray), brads(COLORBOK), ink(Tsukineko) and misc.: rubber stamps, egg and basket accents.

It's always good to review past projects. This layout was sent to a scrapbook magazine's call months later.

SWAP card

This card I made for the CTMH 2009 Regionals SWAP.
All supplies from Close To My Heart.
I like the way these colors it's "neutral" by the means of the recipient, which can be a man or a woman. Quite simple and easy project. I spent a whole Saturday and half day of Sunday to stamp, cut, embellish and assemble all the cards for the swap. In between going to grocery store and taking care of my toddler.
Sorry for the blurry picture of the cards lot. Couldn't get it better through Photoshop.

Have a great night!
