"Scrapbook Queen" Artist's Tray


This project I'm sharing also took time for me to complete as I was in search of aptly beautiful embellishments with the corresponding design that I need for my artist's tray.  {whew~!} 

I'm finally am glad to have completed it plus the fact that I had to make it my own with my own photo. LOL

Here it is:
Supplies Credits:  blank white tray (Iris Babao Uy); fabric (my stash); digital images (my stash); clay frames (Bessie David del Rosario and Karen Ngo); clay figures (my stash - recycled); pattern papers (Webster's Pages); porcelain mini plaque (my stash); letter stickers (Nikki Sivils); paper flowers (Philippine Crafters Assn members); flowers (my stash); picket fence (All About Scrapbooking; pens (Faber Castell and Copics).

I really like to make use of the porcelain Scrapbook Queen mini plaque. It has been with me since year 2011 or was it early 2012.  I never found time to make use of it but really wanted to in any Design Team project but it never made it's way to any DT project.

I'm glad to have finally gotten it on an artist's tray.  With that I'm so happy to have completed the tray. {sigh}

Here are some in-process photos while I was working with my tray in the previous months and days:

My "12 Days of Christmas" 2014 Mini Album

Hi, everyone!

Pardon me . . .  that it took time for me to finish my 2014 December Daily which I rendered into a "12 Days of Christmas" Mini Album.  The Holiday was so busy with crafting and of course Christmas with the family.

I regret not completing the album page by page in December 2014 with the last page to be completed January 2015.  Though not completely regretting and I have forgiven myself for it.

It was suppose to go together with a Hosted December Daily Activity at the Filipino Scrapbookers Club last year. {sigh}

Here I am now and gladly sharing a vid presentation of my 7 page Christmas Mini Album, entitled:  12 Days of Christmas . . .

Supplies are from:  Papermania; Ruth Solomon Gacayan; UBL; Nikki Sivils; from my stash; Cosmo Cricket; All About Scrapbooking; Recollections.

"Birthday Excerpts" of My Travelling Friendship Notebook Back Home

Hi, everyone!

It took time for me to finally decide on sharing a photos of a few pages of my Travelling Friendship Notebook returned in December 2014.

It's a Travelling Notebook activity I hosted over at both Filipino Scrapbookers Club and Philippine Crafters Assn, outside of  It is introducing to them a glimpse of the activities I happily indulge in at's Member's Forum.

The travelling notebook has been personal for me to share and some pages has been close to my heart but I thought it is okay to share a few pages with birthday greetings in my TN on the occasion of my birthday month.

So, here goes:

 It's the 1st Hello Kitty notebook I decorated the cover of, unlike the rest of my Hello Kitty notebooks that I sent around the world which I left without decorating for postage costs to be at a minimal for my pocket.  This Hello Kitty notebook went around in the Philippines starting February 2014.

my 2 title pages

 Here are the birthday pages of the members and participants of the Travelling Friendship Notebook:

 a birthday well-wisher from Pampanga

 a birthday well-wisher from Laguna

 a UNESCO and Wonders of Nature postcard gift from a well-wisher from Makati City
