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.
