Freebie Alert: Goodies from Digital Design Essentials

I have always wondered whatever happened to Gina Cabrera, a talented digiscrap/digital designer. Well thanks to Zanne of Digiscraptology, I found out that Gina took a break from designing and is now back in the grind. And how else can someone return, but with a bang, right? DDE is giving away a free full collection called Digitally Smitten! Just look at this loads of awesomeness:

Flip Book Proposal

I find this really cute, unique and creative:

It started as an idea to give away during their wedding day as souvenirs but it turned out to be the actual day Jonathan proposed to Lindsey.

New Project, New Tools

Just about a few weeks ago, an idea came to me. There was this one product that tickled my fancy so I bought it. And like a bulb that lit inside my head, I knew right away what I’d do with my purchase. Yesterday, I was able to withdraw some online job earnings and I finally invested on tools. I did a run on my new some-kinda-geeky toys and I liked how my mock-up turned out to be what I imagined it would be. I just need to “polish” on some steps and I am good to go.

My layouts (or at least one of the sets) are done and I am happy with what I was able to accomplish. I wish I can share what I did but that will have to wait. For now I need to level down my energy and try to sleep. TTYL!

Font Hunt

For the longest time, I was bugging my friend Zanne to tell me which font she used for her scrap blog. But since her laptop (or external hard drive) crashed, she could not find the .psd file of her header thus she can’t also name the font. Here’s a screen cap of part of the header:

While nothing seemed to be a perfect match, I appreciate that someone actually tried to help me. Kolibri I think is the nearest match. And since I am not too particular with every stroke, I am happy with these discoveries. However, if you have leads on the original one, I’d be a happy camper too! :D

Nikki Epperson’s August Grab Bag

This caught my attention, saw it in Diane’s feeds while I was going through my reader:


Image is clickable, it will lead you to the Digichick store. This grab bag is sold for only $3.50 and Diane tells me that for that prize. it is really worth it. The product description says there are 4 12×12 templates. That alone is a good deal but D says there is a surprise! It’s not called grab bag for nothing, ayt? I am this close to hitting that “add to cart” button!!

After shopping for kits, templates are what I need to jumpstart my scrapping. I need to take advantage of the downtime with work! Wish me luck (DD’s nanny just left, so heaven help me!).

Five Year Old Sofia Coppola Sings Lupang Hinirang

I stumbled upon the home recording of the young Sofia Coppola singing part of the Philippines’ National Anthem, Lupang Hinirang. The recording was actually initiated the Oscar nominated director’s dad, Francis Ford Coppola. The old Coppola was then interviewing the young Sofia and asking her to talk to her future adult self.


This is a good idea. Maybe when Klaire can effectively communicate, we can record interviews like this too. I am sure K will appreciate it when she’s older!

Angel on Earth | And I Should Really be Scrapping Again!

Just the other day, I blogged something nice in my oldest blog. Yes, I have three new kits in my stash and I never thought I’d have some new ones again that soon. See I haven’t even played with all the stuff I got from iNSD and I shopped after that weekend too! This post is just to share my loots and maybe to remind myself also that I badly need to scrap once again ;)

This is the one I was drooling for before I received the GC:


Such a beauty isn’t it? The pages of the CT are also wonderful that they prompted me to buy this :) And here are the two other kits after I got the GC:



These kits are really inspiring me to sit down and work on my pages. But first let me thank my Angel on Earth. You know who you are. Thank you!
