Pull-Out Scrapbook featuring Little Boy Collection

Today I wanna share my first Pull-Out Scrapbook using Little Boy collection from Echo park paper. I made this album for my friend, she has two boys so these papers from EPP are perfect for this project! 
I got the tutorial from Splitcoaststampers you can click here for the complete tutorial, but I made several changes first I changed the size to 5x5" for the cover and 4x4" for the album so my friend can put a bigger size photos of their sons and since I don't have 5x5" coaster instead I used chipboard or the album cover.

Supplies :
- Paper : Little Boy collection from Echo Park Paper, SEI (blue cardstock), and SEI Happy Day
- Banner : a Walk in the Park from Echo Park Paper
- i-rock hot rocks (crystal and blue), and gem rocks (gold)
- i-top small brad
- Button : American Crafts and Making memories
- Gypsy Wanderings cartridge (boys title and boys tag)
- Twine : Martha Stewart

Thanks for visiting!

Friendship Card (Let's Scrap Challenge 12-15-10)

Today I make a card for one of my friend who have been so generously send me a beautiful paper kit and a book about card making :) The paper is from Me and My Big Idea, it's has beautiful pattern so I decided I wanna make a friendship card (I rather called that way than Valentine card). I used Let's Scrap sketch for this week challenge, and here's my card :

For this card I used my Spellbinders classic scalloped circle, and Cuttlebug to cut the heart and embossed it with D'vine swirl, stickles and i-rock hot rocks and gem rocks. For the sentiment I used Stampendous clear stamps and memento ink.
Thanks for looking!

A Walk in The Park

I've created this layout since I got the paper from Echo Park Paper, yup it's several months ago but I never had the chance to finish it, and today I just remember about this one and decided to finish and posting it here. I used PageMaps sketch from PageMaps book one. I just love the paper combination on this layout!

Projects with Imaginisce "Enchanted"

It's been more than two weeks since my last post, so today I wanna share 3 of my projects using Imaginisce Enchanted line. I've been wanting Imaginisce paper for a while but it's hard for me to get one in store (I used to go to J's/M's/ACMoore and no local scrapbook store close to where we live), when I saw this line on Imaginisce blog and I decided I have to get one! and I did! :D
And enough with the story, so here's what I came up with :

Layout :

This layout inspired by Page Maps MLS Challenge, here's the link : My Little Shoebox Layout Contest , and this is the sketch :

Cards :

and the last one is Mini Book with pocket :

It's a book about my daughter, I love how simple to make this mini book I was inspired by Christie from Creation by Christie blog, and here's the link for the tutorial how to make this mini book with pocket : Creations By Christie. The original idea is to use one single 12x12 paper, but instead I used 4 paper of 6x6 so every page has a different design. So that's all for now, I still have some of the paper though and already have some idea what I'm going to make, I Looove this Enchanted collection! 
Thanks for looking :)
