"I'm Nathalie Jane 'Cabbie" Lopez from Manila, Philippines. I'm married with 4 active boys at large. I'm a physician by profession but chose to be with my kids for the meantime. I love to create anything under the sun and i go for the classic, vintage and aged look though I like to experiment with different techniques too. Last october 2007, I am honored to be chosen as the first Scrappinmoms Idol ( a local challenge for scrapbookers). I am also a DT member for Scrapbookshawaii ( a store in the Philippines and Hawaii).

"Hello hello! I'm Felicia from Singapore, (you can call me feli too!). I'm a Uni student who started scrapping in January this year. But my love for handicraft has started way before that.. Scrapbooking is something i'd always love. Altering to me is really fun cos practically everything can be used. I'm so excited to be part of Artz de Scrap and I hope to inspire and be inspired by all the altered projects that will be coming up! My ideas come from everywhere. Like on my inspiration board, Creativity comes from just being myself and the materials I used!!"

Do Come back on 1st Jan to check on our Jan Challenge!
Merry X'mas & Happy New Year

Tutorial #1

Christmas Gift Bag with Card
Do you love to make your own personalized wrapping for gifts? Try this!!!
Its easy, and creative project to dress up ordinary paper gift bags.
Pull out your backgrounder stamps, ink, lace, ribbons, buttons, cardstock, and whatever you have to make a personalized gift bag.

Lesley is planning on using red stickles to write the gift recipient's name on the stocking.

The stocking decoration on the front is actually a card that opens on the left, and you can put your personal greetings inside.

"This is my inspiration board. I get my inspiration to scrap from my son's photos. I love all things that blings (as you can see here)! I also love beautiful flowers and cutouts. The centre piece is my son's artwork that I really love."

"I just have to put Adam & Chris pics..who are my muse, my source of inspiration and my common subjects for all my layouts.
Having my favourite stash... flowers & buttons on it is just so convenient! I even have a bag of all the photos that I need to scrap on they somehow elevate my mojo, like my travel pics...just by looking at them reminds me of the great time that I had, and it eases my mind thinking about it."

Do you already have it?
Then quick go take a photo of it! Show us what inspires you!
