Dalawang Kaya

This month's Kaya challenge is all about stamping. I realized yesterday when I took Candy's tip to organize my acrylic stamps in a 3-ring binder that I have too many stamps that haven't been used. I couldn't help it. They were all so cute and I had high hopes that creativity will follow once I had them in my possession. But thanks to Bjay's challenge, I "de-virginized" a few stamps yesterday.

Constant Changes

You used to listen to classical music at 98.7 The Master's Touch. Now you prefer Chico and Delamar's ramblings at Monster RX 93.1 FM.

You used to kiss and hug me without inhibitions. Now public displays of affection are taboo.

You used to reluctantly answer the phone when your classmates call you. Now you are asking, no, demanding for an i-phone.

But despite the changes brought about by your growing up, you still fight your sisters for the privilege of sleeping beside me at night. Some things will never change. But I still have to brace myself for constant changes.

Materials Used:
DCWV PPS; Heidi Swapp chipboards; Making Memories letter stickers; Sakura pen; Tsukineko and Ranger ink pads; Making Memories, Inque Boutique and Inkadinkado stamps, Daisy Ds rubons.


This next one is my entry to Alby's Hybrid challenge. I actually finished it a few hours before the deadline but wasn't able to upload it because DH invited me to catch the last full show of Watchmen with him. Now I couldn't very well deny him after slaving over a layout about him, di ba? This particular deadline had to wait. :-)

He's All That!

I admire how you decide on the things you want and relentlessly pursue them. The past 2-3 years you decided you want to write screenplays. You enrolled in a short course and within a year you've written a script that made it to the top 20 semi-finalists (out of 300+) in Cinemalaya 2007. You then wanted to be a film director so you enrolled under a famous director and you are now making that dream come true.

Materials Used:
PPS - American Crafts; Chipboards - DCWV, American Crafts; Stickers - 7 Gypsies; Pen - Sharpie, Sakura; Stamping Ink - Colorbox; Adobe Photoshop CS4 to include words in photo as well as for computerized journaling.

DH always looks for connections and significance in my layouts. For him, every little thing I put on a scrapbook page should have meaning. Therefore, a beach layout should have embellishments or papers reminiscent of the beach. I do not always subscribe to this school of thought. The papers I used for this LO, for instance, are from a kids' line. I was just too lazy to dig up other papers that might be suitable hehehe. But I guess, he can't help but look for connections, so when he asked if I chose the green CS for a background because it looked like a cutting mat (he goes through numbers of cutting mats in his work), I said, "Yes, of course. That was the intent." Not....

I'm totally lost for this month's Kaya, lots of stamp supplies is really overwhelming, I have yet to devirginized some of them too hehehe
I sometimes use off theme materials in my LOs too, i think we scrappers have a way of making it work and you did!
