Nikki Sivils We are Family

Oh I loved the class of Ria and Pia today.  We played with Nikki Sivils We are Family kit.  I love the colors and the designs of each paper, as well as the stickers, borders and other elements that can be cut out from the paper as embellishments (in other words everything in the kit is so appealing).  Ria and Pia prepared the best LOs that can be made out of the kit.  The sample LO's and the colors of the kit perfectly matched the pictures of my family weekend stay at Sofitel last Holy Week (April 23-24).  

I am so excited to show my take on the sample LOs that I had to take pictures of them without the benefit of a morning light (talk about my low EQ).  

This is my favorite among the four (4) LOs.  The pictures of my son are just right for the playfulness of the color and the LO design.  And to prove how inspired I was with the sample LO, I won the best LO for this design.  Yehey! Won some 6x6 paper from Nikki Sivils and some flowers.

I just love the clean lines of this design.  Despite the use of 4 pictures, the LO still looked uncluttered but very nice.  

Thanks Ria and Pia for sharing your talents with us.  Looking forward to another class with you.

To Complete My Echo Park Springtime

I made four (4) more LOs using the Echo Park Springtime, the last ones since I have used up all the papers already.  The kit is so versatile and the colors are so adoptive to the pictures that I didn't find it hard to stretch the kit with few more pages.

Title: Universal Studios (oops forgot the "s" in the Title)

In this LO, I copied one of Karen's LOs depicting series of butterflies in flight.

 Title: Explore Quay

Title: Discover Singapore

Title: Sentosa, the Great Escape.

For the Echo Park Springtime, I was able to make 15 LOs., not bad at all.
Thanks for looking.

Another LOs from Echo Park Springtime

I made two (2) more LOs using the Echo Park Springtime.  I am so happy that I get to maximize a kit.  It somehow appeases my guilt feeling from acquiring and spending blindly for some really "necessary" scrapbook stuff.

                                Title: Blooming Affair

This is my favorite, so far, from my Echo Park Springtime LOs.  I used a script stamp over a misted part of the paper as a background.  Then I layered over the cut out flowers from one of the cs in the kit.  I love how it went, based on my standards of course :).

Echo Park Springtime

Echo Park did it again! Another iresistable line with soft-hued and sweet colors. Perfect for those light kid moments.  The colors fit right for my kids' photos and for adults' as well who unconsciously displayed their "child at heart" moments.

In these layouts, I used some of my old-stocked stash to complement the pastel colors of springtime and some embellishments to go with the travel theme.  I used here obviously, a lot of times my newly acquired Technique Tuesday stamps (I forgot what stamp set was it).

So far, I have made nine (9) LOs and pushing to do more as the Wednesday Group has set as goal for every kit.  With a cup of Serenitea, you'll be surprised how much LOs we can make in few hours.

Echo Park Little Boy 2

I have never been a believer of kits.  I thought of it as something so limiting to someone's sense of art.  But I cannot resist Echo Park lines, with their inviting and vivid colors.  They just match the youthfulness and spirited energy of my kids as depicted in their pictures.  It was my first time to work on a kit and so far I've been loving it.  It saves me the energy and time to crack my brain out to think of stuff that would work harmoniously together in an LO.  Result - 15 LOs in just 3 days!

To complete the list of LOs made from Echo Park Little Boy line . . .

Thanks for looking.

Echo Park Little Boy

It was unfortunate that my son caught one of the viruses (hopefully, it was just that) and had to be brought to the doctor for a check up. Being a doting mother than I am, I took a leave of absence to make time for the doctor's visit. When the mommy duties were done and my son was taking his afternoon nap, I sneaked out to have some scrapping time, taking advantage of this once in a while leave from work.  

Was I glad I joined the Wednesday Club session last March 30, 2011! The group has been into kits.  They take it upon themselves the challenge to come up with as many LOs as possible using the kit and few/some elements from other lines.  The challenge somehow rubbed in me, thus, I have been sleeping late for the past 2 days to consume the entire kit with maximum LOs.

I am happy with Echo Park Little Boy kit.  It perfectly matches the color theme of my son's b-day pictures which have been laying on my table waiting to be scrapped.  I scraplifted some of the friends LOs and did some on my own.  Now with this challenge, looks like I'll be needing more pictures to come up with more LOs.

Sharing you some of my works.  

I still have some stash left from the same kit so I think I will coming up with an LO or two, then off to do the next kit - Echo Park Little Girl.  Yehey!
