bling pages

since i am on the subject of making pages, here are my latest LOs and my first LO posting on this blog. they were finished a couple of weeks ago but scanned just today. this was done in the spirit of the 3BIAR challenge at but i just couldn't resist putting on the bling-blings which i knew were not permitted according to the rules so i just went ahead and completed it but never joined it in. this is probably the first time i ever used the same paper line twice! i have an older, still unposted LO (will post that later, katamad kasi mag scan!) using this paper. so that challenge had double potency for me although didn't formally join it. :-)

my thanks also go to scrappin' mom Joanne for encouraging me to do some paper cutting. demo-han ka ba naman like it was just too easy! well, it actually wasn't at first but it definitely made me want to try it and when you're there pala, you just have to finish it... parang di ako makakatulog kung di ko tatapusin. kaya ayan ang resulta.

i am including a "deconstruction" as my friend Lee always likes to know how things are done. personally, i also like looking at mags and books for this reason and i do appreciate it when detailed descriptions are included. i hope you like it, too. here goes...

DCWV cardstock base from the Brights stack; patterned paper by 3bugs decorated with round and flower crystal blings; black scallop border made with BG notch and die tool tips and a hammer and punched with Carl's heart hand punch; 3bugs stickers mounted on diff colors of CS then cut with scallop and shortwave scissors. Flowers on round base are cut from pattern paper and mounted on CS. all these were circle-cut with Simply Scrappy circle swivel knife templates. Stampendous clear acrylic stamps used for the butterflies decorated with Sakura Souffle and Aqualip pens. Insect tracks were done with clear stamps from Craft Express.

Sizzix Fun Serif Dies on ordinary chipboard painted (to provide base color and seal in any acidity) with pink MM acrylic paint then heat embossed using Top Boss clear inkpad and pink glitter embossing powder

wow, Aurie! first of all, I so envy your resolve to scrap at least 1 LO a week! :) (actually, that's also my resolve, ahehehe, although I haven't really done much scrapping lately! as if I ever did, hahahahhahha, never mind!)

Now, about your latest 2 pages - ohmy! great job on using your 3bugs papers! everything on your pages look gorgeous! let me count the things I love about them! I love the way you made the stickers your own, I love the stamped dragonfly image and how you decorated it, I love those insect tracks, too! (hmmmm.... how come I've never seen that stamp before!), I love the bright happy colors and how your DD's dress matches those colors!, I love the scalloped edges! (buti ka pa you were able to make sulit your BG notch tool, na!), I love all the bling, too! too bad you weren't able to submit these pages for consideration (challenge). your pages rock, girl!

hi christine,

thanks for viewing my LOs and visiting my blog. will try to make the contents as interesting as possible. when i get comments as glowing as yours are, super inspired naman ako do and share more!Di sayang ang effort!

and yes, nabinyagan ko na ang bagong tool. if i get a new toy, i have to use it agad e...hehehe...super atat kasi ako. ok sya gamitin, medyo kangawit nga lang with a hammer doing something long like that but i imagine, ganun din naman with the complete tool. this is way too practical to pass up kaya, thanks to you, nalaman ko yang hot tip na yan! super sulit talaga.

Maraming salamat ulit!
