So many photos ... so little time

I bet you feel the same - you have tons of photos to scrap and only little time to spare! Two weeks ago, I found another way of forcing me to scrap more. I joined the bandwagon - I'm currently joining online challenges! So, ok what's the connection between scrapping more and joining challenges? Well, pretty simple - I am forced to finish a layout in specified time and encouraged by the prizes I'll get hahaha! Kidding aside, it has been working for me! I'm compelled to finish a layout, I stopped procastinating, I am able to think faster now and another benefit - I'm using my stash!!! That's one of the best news too! I have a new motto: "Kung gaano ka kabilis mag-shopping, dapat ganun ka din kabilis mag-scrap!!!" Hahaha ... makes sense, di ba?

So here are the "quickie" layouts I did the past two weeks!

Title: Friends

Ria and I joined an online team challenge. We have to make a layout using a title of a TV show. These photos are not of the best quality but I didn't want to waste the pics so I decided to scrap it!

Materials used: Cherry Arte Tropics (Tropica and Tropic Dots), Paper Salon (green base), Heidi Swapp plastic letters - courtesy of Scrapbukan, crystal blings, cardstocks, Fancy pants Biggest Board - flourish, paint, Sizzix Ransom dies, Zig Writer pen

Title: Ready, Set, Blow

The challenge was to use shapes in our layout. But we only have to use 1 star, 1 circle, 1 square and 1 rectangle. After finishing the layout, I thought of adding more embellishments and make it a spread hehehe.

Materials used: Autumn Leaves (Superstar-Powerhouse and Rockstar), Sassafras Lass Playtime (arrows-That a way), Gin X coasters (circle), Fancy Pants Biggest Board (Photo Fun), Bazill cardstock, Signo Uniball white pen, paint, Sizzix Ransom dies

Title: Christmas Memories 2004

The challenge was to use white cardstock as a background. The white cardstock must be visible by at least 50%...meaning we can't completely cover it up with patterned papers.

The photo mat is actually an envelope where I placed the Christmas cards we received during the holidays. I also included the gift tag (red) I put on Ethan's Christmas gift in this layout.

Materials used: Ki Memories Joyful Kit (courtesy of Scrapbukan), white cardstock and Zig Writer pen

The other two layouts I previously posted on Father's Day are also done as part of the challenges.
I'll keep you posted with my other layouts! In the meantime, I'll get back to scrapping!

Hi Pia! I stumbled upon your work while looking at the 2 Peas gallery. Your work is so beautiful and inspiring!! You are so talented! And it's so wonderful that scrapbooking has taken off so well in the Philippines. I'm originally from the Philippines, and I'm so happy & proud to see many people taking up this amazing hobby. Take care!

Hi Anna! Thanks for leaving a message in our blog, I sent you an e-mail! : D

Hi Pearl! Natutuwa ako sayo kasi lagi kang nagpupunta sa blog ko ... maraming salamat!

Re the motto, kailangan ko yun to push myself to scrap or else maluluma ang mga papel tapos makakalimutan ko na, I'll feel bad pag nangyari yun.

Basta scrap lang ng scrap, mabilis at magaling ka naman no! : D
