Meta Wulandari Designs : Our Nest

I've just got accepted as Meta Wulandari Designs' CT member! Yippie... I'm so thrilled to join her team because, to tell you the truth, her kits style is a true resemblance of my own digi style. Soft colour with simple elements and lots of versatile journals to be used in my 365 Project. What a dream comes true...

I met Meta on Facebook and after a bit of chat I told her that last December I sent my CT email application but never accepted any reply. She said, maybe my email went to the Spam because she never accepted any. So, she offered me a CT position if I still interested. Indeed I grab this chance right away.

I was thinking of scrapping Acha's photos of her doing presentation on "how to iron clothes" at her Student Lead Conference. Her shocking pink blouse matches this kit so much.

So, this is it... Our Nest bundle by Meta Wulandari Designs! It contains papers, elements, templates, stacked papers, alpha and cute journaling cards. All in one big bundle for only $12... where else can you get a prize better than this? I just adore the color swatch : pink, green, blue. Just what I need to begin scrapping Acha's story. You can get this bundle separately as well at her sore MScraps.  Here we go... drum rolls please.... tada....

Ginger Scraps : Nana's Sewing Stash by LDrag Designs & For the Love of Layers vol 27 by Connie Prince

I haven't got any sewing kit yet, so I snatched this kit from Ginger Scraps store. LDrage Designs made this vintage kit named Nana's Sewing Stash. I'm loving the color pallet, so soft and vintage! Not to mention the gorgeous thematic embellishments such as thread, needle, scissors, sewing machine and many more.

I also used Connie Prince's For the love of Layers vol 27. You know, I am really into layers lately, and it's so much easier to just use a template and use Clipping Mask!

I've been longing to scrap my last year obsession of patchwork and applique project. Pillow cases! So here it is :

Marie H Designs : Incredible Kids

Marie has just moved to her new store, Me So  Scrappy and this kit is her first release there. This Incredible Kids kit is perfect to scrap all things about your children. The bright polka dot papers quickly captured my attention as soon as I saw them. So cute... The bright red, yellow and blue elements found here are really suitable to scrap kids fun activities.

Ginger Scraps : Spring Ring by Craft-tastrophic and Likey Likey Template Duo by Secret Stash

Two of these week new releases that I worked on is Spring Ring by Craft-tastrophic and Likey Likey Template Duo by Secret Stash.

I just adore the colors of this kit. Look closely... see the yellowish butterfly? I think I've got this bizzare attraction toward these creatures. Any kit with butterflies on it must turn my alarm inside saying." You've got to grab this... Quick!" lol...

Working with template is quite new for me too. At first, I was really reluctant to do it because I felt a bit boxed inside the template. But, now I found it really helpful! Just have to know the trick to turn it into my own...

A bit confused first, "Which picture should I use to showcase this kit?". Ahaa... luckily just last Sunday I took massive pictures of flowers and the kiddos around my Mom's house. Perfect photo for this theme! Voila, this is my take for this occasion....

And I made another layout using combination of this kit and Fall Land by Craft-tastrophic to scrap all beautiful flower pictures I took last week when we were staying at my Mom's house. We wee having lits of fun hunting flowers around the neighborhood!

Wilma4Ever : GJ-Kit Magic Country by Galerie de Jackie & FREEBIES

What cute ducks.... I chose this kit because I fell for those ducks :). I should've used this kit to scrap Alyssa's Ugly Duckling assembly, but at that time this kit hasn't been released yet :). GJ-KitMagiccountry by Galerie de Jackie is currently on 70% sale at $1.70 at Wilma4Ever. It contains 3 poser DNScraps, 47 beautiful elements, 7 papers, but not all items are shown in this preview.

I created 2 pages with this kit. The first one is little Alyssa with her rabbit pet. Sadly, few days later those two rabbits died because the rainy weather hadn't been too friendly with them. Hiks... The, second one is about a bit bigger Alyssa, at Ulat Sutra farm, playing with rabbits and getting herself all wet from catching fresh gold fish with her bare hands. Fun-tabulously day!

I also made a Quick Page from this kit. If you like it you can grab it here.

You know what... I just experienced a bizarre coincidence. A friend of mine just posted a new link on DigiScrap Indonesia called Gallery Standout. Out of curiosity and hoping to find some inspiration, I just clicked this link and... suddenly my jaw opened wide and I shouted "WHAT the...!". How come my layout is in here? Farm friendly by swastinadia : What a pleasant surprise... Had she never posted the link, I wouldn't have found out about this. Truly odd!!

Project 365 : Week 11 - March 2012 using Project 2012 : March - Mega Stash by Connie Prince

Yippie... finally Conni released her long awaited kit, Project 2012 : March - Mega Stash. The colors shout spring to me...! As usual you can buy them in a bundle, which is much more economical than if you buy them per piece. This bundle is currently on 70% save to only $8.99 at Ginger Scraps now. C'mon grab it, what are you waiting for :). I used this bundle to scrap my Week 11. So exciting....

This week I focused on my lessons at TBI, where I teach English. I took pictures of my students playing BOARD GAME and READING RACE. I think they enjoy playing without realizing that they are actually learning something :).

This kit is available exclusively at Ginger Scraps and currently is on 25% sale to just $4.50.

I also use a template by Andrea from Little Green Frog Design at March Daily Challenge at Scraporchard. I think her collection of templates are marvelous because they are full with paper stacks combination that hard to be found elsewhere. Look at my page, aren't they just loveable-huggable-kissable ?

Ginger Scraps : Roadtrip! by Wyld Web Designs.

Can you guess why I like this kit? Yap... because my Picanto car is YELLOW... hehehe... really personal, huh! This kit is called Roadtrip! by Wyld Web Designs. and available at Ginger Scraps. It's perfect to scrap your memories on the road. Like my -not so good- moment... trap on the street!

My favourite part of this kit is definitely the map paper and... the yellow car :). All the sticker signs are cute too. Just love the color combination of yellow, green, blue and brown. Check my page out here :

Ginger Scraps : Artful Blends 2 by JillDZines (released on 16 March 2012)

For you who are an artist inside, this is the right kit to have. Artful Blends 2 by JillDZines. Look at those bright colours! At first I was a bit confused of combining the various elements with such a bold papers. But, the trick is to use solid paper as a background and let the elements brighten up the rest of the page...

I picked the combination of green and purple to create my page. The photos were taken a few weeks ago, yet the project hasn't been continued... C'mon Alyssa... finish it already :).

Ginger Scraps : It's My Birthday QP by Connie Prince

Happy Birthday Ami! These layouts are special order from Bunda Meiti. I made them using Connie Prince's It's My Birthday QP. Tamara (aka scrapper@heart) made these template and I first saw it on her gorgeous DST gallery (she's my favorite scrapper so far!). Whenever I'm on desperate need of inspiration I always peek her gallery there...

Ami's birthday was celebrated twice. At school and at Ciwulan. It was a joy to see her surrounded by teachers and friends. You would guess that she would put on happy face the whole time. But, no! She was so cool. It was not that she was not excited or anything, she might just felt a bit nervous having to stand up in front of her bigger friends :). At the end, she loosened up a bit and I managed to take some great pictures! Here are the layouts :

This time I used combination of products from 3 designers at Ginger Scraps. Ready For School - Grade Level Paper Pack by Connie PrinceFRIENDSHIP PT1: Wordart by Inspired DesignsSchool's In by Twin Mom Scraps. I created this project in honour of my daughter friendship that has lasted more than 5 years! And this is the finished page :

Ginger Scraps : Fall-Land by Craft-tastrophic

When I read Ginger Scraps blog a few days ago, I came across this article titled Team Spotlight : Craft-tastrophic. Every month, Ginger Scraps always interiews one of her designer, and this month it's Ivonne from Craft-tastrophic.

I spontaneously fell in love with a kit she mentioned as her favorite: Fall-Land. The kit has a vintage feeling and gorgeous autumn colour palette. Just look at all the ellies : different shapes and nuance of leaves, various kind of flowers and butterflies. The paper butterfly is absolutely my favourite and of course I included it into my page.

I also like her Craft-Templates Squared Love. I think it is just so unique to use blocks arranged into heart form. Can't wait to toy with these kit and template!

Thanks God I'm currently a Guest CT at Ginger Scraps, so I can take everything I want. Yes... EVERYTHING! Wow, feels like in heaven :).

Oh yeah... I also used Got Gratitude Words Art from Kathy Winters Designs to fill in the white space. I recolour them to suit the total look. Here you go... my page:
