BG: Chevron Part 2

Yay, I got some more time to post a new background image for this day aside from the photo template and I am loving it because my Friday has been a bit productive. Even though there are some negative part of my day, I am glad that making these gave me sunshine in my dark day. I have some heart issues today though, I mean some kind of love life issues, maybe this is because of the long distance relationship that I have that I am feeling this way but hopefully, I could get over this soon.

Anyways, I made these background images long before but I forgot to post them that time. So, here are four of the chevron background images in my disk and you are free to download them to your own personal computers as well.

Scrapbook Layout Idea: My Baby Love

Hello everyone! Here's a new entry for July, I seldom post because of work but I was able to make one today because of my little niece's pictures. I had these photos published in my Facebook account before she turned two last February of this year.

Now that I am far from the family, I am missing this little kid. I could not take photographs of her anymore. She started going to school now and I learned from my parents that she has been doing good in school. She's in a private kindergarten school and there are only five of them in the morning class and she has been excelling for the past few weeks of school. I am so proud of my niece.

Scrapbook Layout Idea: Love Peace Music

I made this template more than two months ago when I was still in the Philippines and I don't have any work anymore, I got the chance of making a couple of templates for me and James as well as for my niece and family. When I arrived in Dubai and started looking for job until I landed on a job, I was never been able to post anything anymore in this blog site which made me really miss blogging. I am thankful to Ramadan because I have spare time after work since we are just gonna work for only six hours plus a mandatory two hour overtime so I am just working eight hours per day.

So since it is also my rest day today and I don't have any other things to do, I got the chance to post something for my scrap-booking website, this just made my day! 

The photos in the template were taken way before I resigned from my job in Cebu. James and I together with some friends went to have some karaoke session and our good friend, Carlo took these portraits of us together. I thought these photos are worth to be added on a scrapbook template and I was never wrong indeed.

Scrapbook Layout Idea: Perfect Moment

Hello guys! I want to let you all know that I am now residing here in Al Satwa Dubai. It's my first week and things are totally different, the place, the people, the technology and most specially the weather.

The reason why I am posting this is mainly because I am missing my best friend, my boyfriend for almost five years now and my confidante. He is the only person whom I can trust everything, though I have close friends whom I also share my secrets but James is the only person who I can tell everything under the sun and I am confident that these conversation stays within ourselves. I am missing him especially when I go roam around the city, I remember the times when we go travel together too in the Philippines. I wish I can let him see what I am seeing right now and share with him my thoughts while riding on the trains or the buses. And when I watched the dancing fountain here in Dubai in front of Burj Khalifa building, the tallest hotel in the whole world, I really want him with me but unfortunately, it’s impossible that time.

Birthday Tarpaulin Design : Aiesha's 3rd Bday Version 3

Finally! I got the chance to share to you the last and final design I made for Aiesha's third birthday tarpaulin. This was the last design but not my favorite one however, it was the design which was actually printed in the end. I wonder why but I really can't remember the reason to that. 

Anyways, I am posting this so to show you the different designs and so that if anyone of you would like to get a design like this for your daughter someday, you can just message me here and I'll definitely send the psd file to you. I don't have the specific psd design here on this post because this isn't a scrapbook page template and so I thought I'll just give you the overview of the design, if you want it, simply message me via the Facebook page or maybe post a comment in and I'll send you the file or maybe I'll do the honor of changing the photos to your daughter's. How do you find that deal?

Anyways, I kinda find this design very girly and that I couldn't really find any other color that would suit a birthday girl aside from the color pink. Would you agree with me? Haha

Birthday Tarpaulin Design : Aiesha's 3rd Bday Version 2

This image up here is the second design I made for my niece's third birthday and that it wasn't chosen to be the tarpaulin design as well for a reason I can't really remember at this point, it's been like two months or so since her birthday. If I was not surfing around my external hard drive, I wouldn't be able to see this lay out then.

I also like this lay out because it showcases the clip arts I made years ago, if you are a follower of this blog, you might have seen this clip art set before, but if you are new and you might want to check on this set, just click here.

So since this was not published at all, I would like to give it instead for free. I don't have a template for it but I can give you a link of the image if you send me a message too or a comment on this post. I am not online all the time but I definitely check my blog daily.

Birthday Tarpaulin Design : Aiesha's 3rd Bday

My niece turned three last February 10, 2013 and I forgot to post the lay outs I made for her birthday tarpaulin. I made three actually but ended using the least favorite. Today, I want to share the first one and my most favorite lay out among the three of them.

Few days before her birthday, we managed to set a pictorial session for her, she wore three different dresses and she was kind of bothered about it. She eventually cooperated after giving her some candies and gums, she like snow bear candies and juicy fruit gums though and her mom gave some so she gave her smile back too.

The truth here is that I can't really remember why this lay out was not choosen, I totally forgot the reason but it's totally fine, maybe I can use this for her fourth birthday, maybe! Or maybe I can just give this lay out to anyone who out there who might like it, just email or comment here if you are interested though.

Scrapbook Layout Idea: Through The Years

Two months - looking at my last post made me sad today, it was dated February 3, 2013 and today, it's been two long months that I hadn't updated this blog here. I was indeed busy for the past two months, a lot of stuffs happened and there are soo many different changes of my life with that span of time. First was that I resigned from my four year work as a customer agent representative last April 15, 2013. I started working in the call center right after college, year 2009 and this was my ever first job experience. Though the job has given me enough for my needs, I have a family who also needs and I want to save as well so I finally decided to go to a foreign country for work. My brother is already there and he is preparing my papers for my flight. I will soon be going there this May and I am excited yet quiet scared about the thought.

Glad I earned some inspiration in making two scrapbook pages today. Because I am leaving my boyfriend behind, I am making some our photographs into scrapbook pages. I hope I'll get the time and courage to print all of these pages I made soon. We have been in this relationship since college, that's almost five years. The photos here shows how we evolved, teehee.

Chevron Background Image

Before, if my mind recalls right, I have a couple of background images inspired from this zigzag type of image. In fact I also had named it zigzag. While writing this post, it makes me laugh at myself because of my terrible memorization skills. I wonder if I have a memory disease, in Jesus Name!

Anyway, the reason why I am recalling it because I had just found a cute blogpost about an illustrator renewing her pair of old Chuck Taylor sneakers. She made chevron designs on it using a plain black marker. Then I just learned that this design should be called chevron and not just the simple zigzag design.

I made these then and I had so much fun making them! I made six color varieties and I am giving them away for free! Yepey! Well, I realize I am always giving my designs for free since then.

Scrapbook Layout Idea: Vintage Postcard

I have this special kind of love for anything vintage, I may have already shared this before and that I foresee the future of me collecting things like this since before. And because of that, I enjoy making scrapbook layouts with a vintage theme on it. It makes me want to go to the old times, though I am not a history-fan.

Therefore, I made up this vintage-inspired scrapbook layout yesterday, I have this script background image which I use for my background and found this cute postcard image via the internet and made it as the main ingredient on this specific lay out. I already forgot where I downloaded this one, there’s a variety of vintage postcards in that site but I regret that I never bookmarked it. Tsk tsk tsk…

The photos has been edited with a pre-made action in Photoshop, there are thousands if not millions of actions in Photoshop which can be downloaded via the internet if you just try to search for it. I have downloaded tons of them before but haven’t tried checking on all of them or even used them so far. In case you aren’t familiar with actions yet, it can be compared to a template, except that it can be played again and again to give a specific effect to a certain picture. This one that I used here is named Coffee, I had to delete some of the layers of the action which had suit how I like it to be.

Clip Arts : Imbalanced Cake for Me

Cakes represent celebrations, may it be a birthday, anniversary, graduation, Christmas and etc. Since my birthday is around the corner, I would like to start celebrating it through a digital cake I made years ago. As I was scrolling on the photoshop files I had saved on my external drive, looking for the cupcake invitation layout I made for my niece's birthday, I ended up finishing this imbalanced cake. It showed that the last day it was modified was January 9, 2012. This made me thought why I never had finished this cake last year then. I was thinking it could be because I wasn't satisfied with how it become but today, I never realized it is worth posting here.

This will look great in a Birthday invitation letter, which I might be making soon. I had forgotten where I saved my niece's birthday invitation for her 3rd birthday celebration this February so I guess I will be making up one soon too! Hopefully I will be able to find it as soon as possible so I won't start from scratch.

Scrapbook Layout Idea: It's our Love Story

Most people say that majority of long relationships end once they reach their fifth year, James and I had been together since we were both in college. And we will soon be celebrating our fifth anniversary this August. I have never been scared about the fifth anniversary thingy but I couldn't help but think about what might happen when that time comes. 

I don't know if I have shared our story to you however, at this point I would like to somehow share a little bit of how we started and how are we right now.

As I been telling you, James and I are college classmates since first year, actually way before first year, I had already spotted him at the DOST summer training. Well, I was  in a relationship that time and so was he so there were no expectations of anything that time. We're in our freshmen year that time when we were being teased about liking each other,  he never looked handsome to my eyes but he was nice and gentleman, that were his points. We went on being friends, share the same group of friends and go like usual barkadas, go out together with the group, hang out at the same places, do project works as a team and until one time, we were in our senior year and both of us were single. One of our buddies started teasing us again and unexpectedly, he was kind of making some efforts to be like someone that makes me think of him at night.
