The wait is over...Puppy Love & Summer Sweeties Kits

Thanks you so much for your understanding and patience. Before I give you the kits, here are me updates from me:

1. During the last few weeks, I've been contemplating in looking for a site where I can put my kits. 4shared seemed to be giving me a problem with so many invalid links whenever my files reach more than 50% of the allotted storage. Early this year I both a silver plan in 4shared (see my ramblings about it here here).
I sent an email to 4shared and they replied (you can read it Here).


I think they realized the loophole in their plan, maybe I was not the only one who complained. Now, they removed the silver, gold and platinum plan, they now have a premium plan giving you 100 GB of both storage and bandwidth. I guess it's a better plan so I purchased and will try it for one month. If it works good then I'll stick with 4shared.

2. With my 4shared premium plan, I can embed the download links here, so downloading will be easier for you--direct links and no waiting time (let's see how long that 100 bandwidth per month will last, the former 5 GB bandwidth that I purchased is only good for a few days).

3. We still have power interruptions from time to time. Yesterday and today, we had no electricity for a several hours. I've now been so used in using a fan to cool myself because it's so humid/hot here. That's why when the electricity had resumed at around midnight, I'm still fanning myself. And then I thought, I should have turned either the aircon or the electric fan, LOL.

4. In some areas in our place, there are still floods but it's not as high as before...and yes no electricity as well. The new typhoon named Pepeng (international codename "Parma") which landed in our country last Saturday doesn't want to leave our country. As of today it has it's 3rd landfall--it can't leave because another typhoon,
named "Quedan" (international codename: Melor), is preventing it from leaving, . It is expected to stay in the country for three more days. Can you imagine a storm that lasts for more than a week? The affected area for that typhoon is where my Mom and my sister's family lives.

5. With all the things that I have witnessed these past two weeks--seeing expensive cars, houses, appliances and furniture sinking in water--I realized the things that are more valuable such as cultivating one's character, building relationships and harnessing God-given talents--such can never sink in floods in an instant. DH and I had been affirmed of our values too--investing our treasures in heaven--to know Christ and to make Him known. I'm not saying that material gain is bad but if you will but all your heart into it, you will really be left with nothing when tragedy such as this strikes.

Anyway, here now are you kits:

Just an Update from Me and your Kits...

I have been MIA for a while. Have you heard about the typhoon which recently left a huge damage in our country, particularly in our place in Metro Manila? It's called Ondoy here but the international name is Typhoon Ketsana. Here's a link from CNN http://edition.cnn.com/2009/US/10/02/week.in.irpt/index.html The picture being shown there is Pasig City which is where we live. Here's another link http://edition.cnn.com/2009/WORLD/asiapcf/09/28/philippines.flood.irpt/index.html

I have been having problems with 4shared since last week. I was supposed to upload your kits but there are a lot of invalid links in my account that I need to re-upload. I noticed that if my files in 4shared reach more than 50% of the allotted 5 GB, many links will be invalid. To think that I have paid subscription at 4shared early this year. Yes, mine is not the free stuff.

Anyway, I was supposed to upload everything last Saturday (Sept 26). I know there's a storm/typhoon but it was only signal #1 in Metro Manila. In our country, typhoons are very common especially from June to November. The name of the typhoon is Ondoy. Since, it starts with letter "O", that means it's the 15th typhoon that hit the country since January 2009. Typhoon is very common and expected during this season. Life goes on for us for signal #1 storm, there are still offices and classes for college students. We're so used with heavy rainfall and a "little" flood.

Last Saturday, Mike and I woke up late (well, it's normal for us to wake up between 9-10 am as we also sleep late). We had a great sleep, it rained overnight. Mike loves it when it rains. On Saturday morning, we noticed as we stepped on the floor that it's wet. We lived on the second floor and we've been used on having those water on our floor that sipped through the walls when there's a heavy downpour. But this time, the water nearly filled our pail. I was a little bit complaining since we haven't had our breakfast yet and there we were attending to our wet floor.

I turned on the computer and told my husband that I will upload files the whole day. I prepared breakfast and continued my ramblings until my husband unfurled the curtains and saw that the water in our neighbors' place (from the other subdivision) was already up to my knees based on our estimate. It still didn't bother me as I thought, when the rain stop in the afternoon, it will subside. Before, we had our breakfast, I tried to connect to the internet so that there's an uploading going on while we're eating but it always failed. So, we just had our breakfast. I told my husband to just hibernate the computer as I will try to connect at the internet after we had our breakfast. When I went back, I still can't connect at the internet, so I just decided to call our clubhouse bistro to order our food for lunch but I thought the line is being cut, so I asked my husband to check our telephone line and it's so funny, he said: "Honey, there's no dial tone, didn't you notice? That's the reason you cannot connect with the internet" LOL, I really didn't notice, my mind is still conditioned that everything was doing fine that day.

So, first it was the telephone, then, the electricity was next and then, there's no water supply. It went on from Saturday to Wednesday. But our landline has only been resumed only this morning (Friday). There's still a lot of things that happened during that time but our internet connection is being disconnected every 5 minutes, so I'll tell the other stories some other time.

Just to give you an idea on what our vicinity looked like last Sunday morning, my husband and I took a lot of pictures and here are some of them.


(you can click the picture to enlarge it)

This was taken at around 6:00-6:30 am, Sunday morning. Mike and I went to the rooftop (at the fifth floor--we lived in a mid-rise condominium to see how our neighborhood looked like. The water was brown because there was a landslide in the nearby towns of Antipolo and Morong (that's the mountainous side) and it was filled with mud. There were vehicles on the street which you cannot see in this picture because they were submerged in water.


(you can click the picture to enlarge it)

There were also a lot of people who stayed overnight on the roof, especially those who didn't have a second floor. Our unit was on the second floor so except for the "little" water on the floor (compared to this) that I used to complain about plus the "no water, landline, electricity and food thingy", we're still so blessed. We were supposed to have our weekly grocery that day and I'm not really into processed foods that's why we starved a little since we didn't have any canned goods. But all in all, we're still doing great compared to our neighbors.



(you can click the picture to enlarge it)

This photo says it all. Have you noticed the cabinet? The clothes are still neatly folded. We have friends in this area and until now, they are still submerged in knee-deep water.


OK, let's go back to you kits, one of the kits that I was supposed to upload last Saturday was very ironic to my situation as it is called "Summer Sweeties" hahaha, you read that right. I know most of you are from the West and you just had your summer and I'm sure you have a lot of photos on the beach to scrap. That's why I decided to make a summer/beach kit. So while we are experiencing heavy rain and flood in this part of the world, you're still savoring the memories you had during your summer, LOL. You will laugh with the other with the other kit for the month of September because it also depicts a situation that was very contradictory to our condition during that time, LOL.




I still don't know when will the kits be up as the internet connection is not doing well at this time. I just want to assure you that your kits are safe from the floods. I will post as soon as I can. I have tons of emails to answer and a lot of things to clean up. So please, just be patient. Thank you so much for your understanding. There's another typhoon coming this Saturday, Typhoon Peping, so if I were not able to post again, please be assured that I'll give your kits as soon as I can. Kindly bear with me a little bit more.

Baby Love Digi-Scrap Kit and Bragbook Freebies

This kit has taken me longer to upload, I thought there's a problem with 4shared, my computer or the internet connection. Well, after several days, I tried to change browser (from firefox to internet explorer) and voila! the files were uploaded in no time--why didn't I think of that last week?

I want to share with you the layout that I made using this kit. My niece is going to celebrate her 7th birthday on August 16, so this kit is for her. Young as she is, she's already an accomplished swimmer, violinist and a karate kid. I took these pictures of her when we visited them in the US last May. I used a wordart from dranet in this layout.




Here's the pastel background.



But I actually like the black background more. This background paper is included in your download.


Now, here's the Baby love kit which I hope youlike. If you have any desired kit in mind, just leave me a comment here or email me, so that I can work on it. We still have more than 12 kits to go, though I already have themes for the kits but I would rather do something which you can really use.

Leigh & Latrize Bragbook Sets

Last December, I made a bragbook set for my niece, Latrize, as my Christmas present to her. I have given that bragbook set to magicmaker-scraps members as a bonus and I also promised that I will make another one for your little boys. The reason for the delay of the "boy" set is because there aren't so much "boy" tubes out there. I've joined several tube membership clubs just to have enough male gumdrops, LOL.

Since, it's a promise and I haven't forgotten it, LOL, I'm giving the Leigh Bragbook Set to previous members and to new members as well. I'm also giving the Latrize bragbook to new members since it will be useless to only have one set--for girls or for boys only.

The lady I was sitting with at the airplane when we came home to the Philippines showed me her bracelet with 15 heart charms in it. Each charm has the name of her grandchildren along with their birthdays. As I told you before, you can also make that to these bragbook pages. You can put the picture of your children, grandchild, or godchildren (would you believe, I have more than 20 godchildren) in them and put their names and birthdays as well. There's enough page at the bottom of each page to write those stuff. Voila! you have an instant album of your dear grand kids with their birthdays--so you won't forget. Now, you have BB pages for both boys and girls. They also come in both portrait and landscape orientation.

Note: Some of you have only joined the club last April and May. I have disabled the old link of Latrize Bragbook but I have uploaded another one for previous members who have not downloaded them yet.

Faye's Fairy Fantasy

Here's your first kit for this month, it has 25 papers and more than 50 single elements that are not just recolored and those with various colors will give you a total of more than 70 elements. This kit is named after my niece, Faye.






This kit was inspired by a color palette that I've done with Ang Larue's color challenge. We're only required to make six elements and 3 papers but I fell in love with the colors and I made an entire kit with it.

I decided to make a welcome bonus kit every month and those who will join during the month of July will get this kit. Those who joined last June will still get this kit and so forth in the coming months. That means, if you joined earlier, you'll have at six extra bonus kits until the end of this year. Of course, only those who joined last month will have all six kits, but getting five extra kits if you join this month is not bad at all. By the way, the Mommy Dear kit which is the welcome kit for June is now available at michelles-angels.com.

Just click the "download here" above and you're ready to download the July welcome kit. Don't forget to download the mini-kit below as this is the "add-on" to the Delicate Elegance kit.

"Lovely Snowy" Kit and a Sampler Freebie

It's been a while. I'm out of the country right now and it's really a blessing to have this kit up. After a few weeks of adjustment in weather, time zone, and routine...I'm so glad, I'm back. Anyway, here's the last series for the princesses kit. You already have Cinderella (Cinder Weds) and Sleeping Beauty (Aurora in Love); finally, Snow White (Lovely Snowy) is here.

I think, Snow White is lovely here, but can you believe, DH said that I made an ugly Snow White--she's so pale, LOL. Of course, I made her pale to make her complexion as white as snow--that's why she's called Snow White, right? I usually take my husband's criticism in my work so seriously but this time, I want to keep my Snowy in this kit (besides, my "layered" Snowy was left in the Philippines).


This kit has 65 elements and 25 papers. There are elements that are not shown in the preview.



I made two QPs from this kit and you can grab it in my other blog at fairydustprincess-magicmaker .

Download the QPs at fairydustprincess-magicmaker


I also made a sampler for everyone. I hope somebody will be able to use the sampler even if it's just a few papers and elements.

If you like the kit but you don't want to be a member, Lovely Snowy is also available at michelles-angels.com/ along with my other kits. Also, since my Dad would have been 70 years old this month (March 14) if he's still alive, so I'm having a 70% off sale at michelles-angels.com/ until March 31.

"Aurora in Love" Kit and a Sampler Freebie

I'm back with another kit, If you have read my other blog (fairydustprincess-magicmaker ) you probably know that I have some sort of an issue with 4shared. I'm slowly migrating my freebie files to the free account and the membership kits/files in a paid account so that you'll enjoy an ads-free and direct download. However, that would resume next month. My bandwidth allocation has exceeded since there were so many downloads for my freebies that used up my paid account features. I thought I would not be able to upload this kit until next month, I emailed 4shared and they replied that I can still upload my files and you can still download. However, it's back to the usual (with ads and with waiting time).

Anyway, it's my second consecutive valentine without my husband by my side. He's in Russia right now; last year he was in Qatar. So, "Aurora in Love" is my second set of Fairytale Princesses (Cinder Weds is the first). It also goes well with Cinder's Wish Papers and Elements. I was supposed to include a sleeping Aurora (Sleeping Beauty) but I guess, she won't be in-love if she's asleep so I have to wake her up because it's valentines day, LOL.

I hope you like this one. I had a great time making the oval frame. It's 10 inches tall with lovely roses in it.

Oppps...By the way, I have an add-on for Cinder Weds, which is included in this "Aurora in Love Folder). So, if you see the download file with the "Cinder Weds Add on" just include that in your download and just transer the file to where it should belong.

I didn't make a sampler freebie for "Cinder Weds" but I do have one for this kit. This kit will also be available at michelles-angels shop shop. So, if you don't want to be a member of magicmaker-scraps and you just want this kit, go ahead and get it there.

Anything Goes Commercial Use Kit and Altered photo background/cluster border freebie

Hurray! It's my birthday today and you're the one you'll get the gifts, LOL. Yup, I have a kit for you (magicmaker-scraps members) and a magical background/cluster border for everybody.


Since I'm 35 now, I have here 35 different kinds of commercial use items that I have photographed and extracted, it has no theme or whatsoever...that's why it's called "Anything Goes". I have already used some of the items here before in my QPs with a Twist, now you can have them as individual/unmerged files. I hope you'll be able to use one or two of them in your kits or layouts.





Members Download here


Now, for the freebie. Last week, I tried to make a background as I was thinking of printing a shirt with my nieces' photos on them and give the shirts to them. It seems like these T-shirts are very "in" nowadays.


Anyway, here are some of my sample layouts, as you can see my fairies that I have given as freebies in my other blog at fairydustprincess-magicmaker is in the LO. You can get those fairies there. My nieces were still small in this altered art. This was taken ten years ago.



Here's another rendition, this time it's a more recent photo. Yes, the little girl on the left (above) has already grown up and this is one of her latest photos.


I really love this background but I was thinking if you would want to put your own background into it. Or how about changing it's orientation (from landscape to portrait). to solve that, I made it into a cluster border and voila, I have another sample LO.



It's our wedding photo with one of the scenic pictures that Mike has photographed. Did I tell you my DH is a hobbyist photographer? The wordart is from dittersfreedoodles.

By the way, the width of the border is ten inches, so you may want to resize it to eight inches (for 8x10) or five or seven inches (for 5x7) prints.

Cinder's Wish, Cinder's Dream, and My Little Prince Kit

I don't know if there are still among you (magicmaker-scraps members) who haven't downloaded these three fairytale kits that I have given away as a freebie at fairydustprincess-magicmaker blog. "Cinder's Dream" had more than 1,500 downloads when I removed the download link. Then, somebody has re-uploaded it at 4shared and I was surprise that it still has several downloads even if I wasn't the one who uploaded it (somebody has pirated my stuff...grrrr...)

Now, I'm giving the link back but only to magicmaker-scraps members. I love making kits and QPs but I realized it is better to give them exclussively to magicmaker-scraps members to avoid piracy...so far my members are all behaved. Thank God.

Anyway, here are the three kits.

Latrize Bragbook Set and Freebies

Last Christmas, I decided to make personalize bragbooks (bind in spirals) for my nieces...which I wasn't able to print/give because of what happened to me.

I have so many pictures of one of my nieces named Latrize in different get-ups. Indeed she looks like a doll in different costumes. Some were taken by me and other were sent to me by her Mom thru email. It was her ballet and Hawaiian/Hula recital that inspired me to make these bragbook layouts/bragbook QPs. Here are samples of the layouts I've done with Latrize. As you can see in some pictures she's still so small. I actually made more than ten bragbook pages for her. And I guess, I will also give away the other pages later...as the other ones are holiday-themed bragbook (Christmas, etc).




I originally made them in "landscape" orientation. But, I don't want to cut her feet as she's doing her ballet and Hawaiian dance, so I transformed everything into "portrait" and you'll get both orientation.

Girls love to dress-up and in other countries, they have halloween and I see in different blogs how cute in the little girls are in their costumes. Since we don't have halloween here, I'm glad Latrize has so many photos where she's wearing costume for their school program and recitals. She even have a photo where she's in mermaid attire.

Anyway, most of you who are members of magicmaker-scraps are grandmothers, so I guess this will be perfect to have one page for all your grandkids...don't forget to put their names and birthdates on the pages so that you'll always remember to greet them "happy birthday"--there's enough space at the bottom of the frame so you can use your chosen alpha set/fonts for their names. You can bind them together and bring them everywhere to brag to your friends, LOL. I'll try to look at my files for some boy gumdrop tubes so that your little boys will also have pages in your bragbook too.

I do not know what to call this bragbook set, so I just called it Latrize, named after my niece.

Members, kindly download the the freebies both here and at fairydustprincess-magicmaker as they are not included in your download files.


This bragbook set is now available at michelles-angels.com

"The Magnificent 2008 Part 2" QPs with a Twist and QP Freebies

Finally, the second part of the "The Magnificent 2008" is here...though it's already 2009, LOL. Thank you for your patience. I really tried to finish it before the year ends but I really couldn't do it.

Last December, I emailed you (magicmaker-scraps members) about my condition and most of you have sent me good wishes. In fact, one of you (I hope Margaret wouldn't mind if I mention her name--how very sweet of her to do that) even sent me an LO/card with my picture in it using items that I have designed. I'm so deeply touched with her gesture and I always look at that LO whenever I'm sad... Sad? It's because the reason for my happiness at that moment has gone too soon.

My friend Lynette has already blogged about it, you can visit her blog at lynettesphotoart as she tells what happened to me. I still have to make my account on this matter--I have to do my obligation to you first as I'm already behind, LOL. Now, that we're done for 2008 sets (opppsss...I didn't forget "My First Book of Shapes"--you'll have it soon), I can now work on writing my testimony. As magicmaker-scraps members, you know that as much as possible I wanted to keep this matter in private that's why I just email you instead of posting it here. Though I experienced some loss, I am still an unworthy recipient of God's miracle. I'll be making an account of God's work in my life...and blog about it! As I was reading Lynette's blog awhile ago, I was convicted that this event in my life must not be kept in secret anymore...it must be told so that His name may be glorified. Lynette was able to write everything so well so I will just add some details about what happened.

Anyway, enjoy the "The Magnificent 2008 Part 2." I really had a great time doing this set.

Now, the freebie QPs are very special. They were made using most of Lynette's stuffs (which you can also download) in her blog at lynettesphotoart. They are for personal and church used only but I have used those items with her permission. This is my way of thanking her for praying for me and by being a channel to which God may pour His blessing and miracle on me.
