Summer is officially here! There are lots of workshops around the Metro from swimming lessons to piano lessons. For me though I was thinking of picking up a watercolour lesson workshop but I was too slow and the slots filled up very fast. I did however tried this class of Ime from Lasting Impression one of the few LSS here in the metro. Continue reading “Mini Folio”
I just got one of the most amazing happy mail ever!! Like the year before, last year I joined Secret Santa event which was participated by Studio Calico ladies. I love joining event like this cause I love making a sort of care package for my recipient. Though its actually nerve racking whether or not my recepient would love or hate what I would choose for her based on the list of her likes and dislikes. I like the Studio Calico community wherein people are always so helpful and generous! Who in their right mind would not like ladies like that right? Certainly not me. I actually think I have a Studio Calico addition cause every time I go online I always check out the forum just to pop in and see what the ladies are talking about.

Hello 2015! I’m not the type of person who plans or think about what I’m going to do tomorrow. I’m more of a now person, this two weeks of vacation time due to the holiday season gave me time to think of what’s my next step with this hobby. I formally started Project Life-ing last year, and honestly I have a couple of months that I need catch up on. I have lots of ideas in my head and I can’t seem to translate them well on paper, so I decided to write them down and give myself a deadline. Continue reading “Hello 2015!”
Happy Holidays my scrappy readers! Taking a break from all the holiday merriment for the much-awaited Studio Calico reveal day! The January Studio Calico kit is called Far Far Away. It has a cutesy feel without being too kiddie like or too girly. I personally love it! I’m so glad I didn’t cancel my subscription. Cancel my SC subscription??? Well..that would be in another post. For now, I’m still a subber and still enjoying all the perks and let me continue gushing over this new release.
After days of non stop baking for my niece’s upcoming birthday, I decided to take a happy mail break. I quickly went to the post office to claim my mail. I was expecting my Kikki-K planner which was mailed months ago or maybe my Kelly Purkey Black Friday or maybe my Secret Santa mail came. When I saw the box it said Australia, I was thinking of my secret Santa is an Aussie. I quickly dropped by a milk tea shop with a wifi connection of course and open up my package.
I do most of my shopping in Studio Calico and other on-line stores. Don’t get me wrong, we do have a LSS here in Manila, I don’t frequent it very much because its very far and a bit complicated to go to with public transportation but when I do I shop like there’s no tomorrow! Lol! That is why when I do make an effort to go there, I see to it that its during one of their semi annual sale which is usually on May and November. Though they offer through phone or text orders sometimes its difficult and frustrating since “kuya” and “ate” are not that verse in the scrapbooking world but its bearable since they are very accommodating and helpful.
I love Studio Calico and dear readers I want to share the monthly inspiration that I get from them. If you join now till November 28 2014 using my referral link we would get triple points! hats $15 extra spending money which we could use for add-on kits purchases.

Mainly I’m working on my Project Life, though admittedly I’m weeks behind. I’m not panicking though, not yet anyway :p Aside from that I have loads of travel mini albums lined up that I need to create. Right now thought, I’m starting on the mini album from pastry school. I guess I just miss the friends I made there and working in a pastry kitchen. Mini Project – Scrappy Manila Scrappy Manila is born out of my OCDness. With my on going subscription to Studio Calico, my supplies of washi tapes are going like a weed! Instead of storing them in a box like some of my friends do, I found that when I don’t see them I don’t get to use them which is a pity. So with my washi rack, all my washis are on display and I get to use them most of the time! Moreover, they look pretty. Instead of keeping this amazing product all for me to enjoy, I am selling it though my Facebook page and instagram account. As many scrappers know, this hobby can sometimes lead to hoarding so as much as possible with my limited storage space, I try to de-stash and sell off some of the items that I don’t use or have no plans on using. I bet someone could find a better use for them! 😀 Continue reading “Inspiration Blog Hop!”
Guess what today is?? Today is the start of bundling time and 12 hours from now its presale time for Studio Calico subbers! Can you tell I’m super excited! One of the things I love about Studio Calico is the community, we like sharing what we got and what we missed. So those who are curious on what I got and will be getting for this August Studio Calico haul, here goes:
As a Studio Calico reward member, my first purchase is this Mini Book Library class! It’s a collection of class that will be held every quarter throughout the year. I’ve been wanting to purchase this class since it was announced, I think it was early January this year. I was putting it off since I knew that I would be earning my star this year. It was so hard not to click that BUY button, but as a reward member I get to have 25% discount!!! How awesome is that!! The Mini Book Library is a collection of all the four classes from four amazingly talented ladies namely: Nicole Reaves, Maggie Holmes, Marcy Penner and Celine Navarro.
