My heart-felt THANKS to all who attended and dropped by during the Oct 10th PHILIPPINE SCRAPJAM at Alexandra Clubhouse. I can't get over the enthusiasm and excitement I felt during the JAM. I hope everyone who attended and took the classes had fun with the classes, tried new techniques, are happy with their projects.
Jian and I had such a blast whenever we visit and see everyone’s beautiful faces eager to learn something new and looking forward to all the surprises we had in store for them. The loot bags got a lot of rave reviews not to mention the class kits! Of course, there were a few times that we had to cut short everyone’s shopping time for classes. And yes, I caught some of you browsing the store during class time and couldn’t resist the new, recently-released products and discounts.
Speaking of products, all the products we brought and sent to the Philippines were left with my friend and partner, Nette of My Little Attic. Please watch out for an announcement of a SH/MLA HOLIDAY SALE coming out soon! In the meantime, if you saw products that you wished you bought during the Jam, please contact Nette ASAP at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Again, MARAMING SALAMAT PO for having fun with us and sharing with us your enthusiasm, excitement and warmth during the SCRAPJAM.
HUGS to you all!

We were called by the Alexandra Clubhouse Management and they informed us that we have to vacate the premises by 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, Oct 10. As I'm sure you all know, we had to reschedule the JAM from Oct 3 to Oct 10.
When we moved the dates, they failed to inform us that the hours we had originally rented the space for on Oct 3 wasn't transferred. It was only a few seconds ago when Nette received the call from the management informing us nga of vacating the premises by 5:00 p.m. They couldn't extend us as we had requested for Oct 3 because there is another event to start at 6 p.m.
So, with that said, we have to adjust everything by an hour early. What does this mean? Instead of starting at 10 a.m., we will now start at 9 a.m. and end at 5 p.m. Wala nang extension. JAMMERS who preordered distress inks, blending tools and craft mats, please lang come at 8 a.m. to pick up your preorders as we will need these for the first class.
Classes will be adjusted to an hour earlier. Here's the new schedule:
SCHEDULE OF ACTIVITIES
8:00-9:00: Registration/Shopping/Preorder pickups
9:00-11:30: First Class: MINI BOOK OF TECHNIQUES
12:30-1:00: Second Class: BLOOMS and BUTTERFLIES
1:00-2:30: Third Class: NOT THE USUAL
2:30-3:30: Fourth Class: STAR LIGHT, STAR BRIGHT
3:30-4:30: ScrapChallenge/Snack Break/Shopping
4:30-5:00: Judging of Scrap Challenge/Announcement of Scrap Challenge Winners
OPEN SHOPPING: 1:00 to 5:00 p.m.
We are very sorry for any inconvenience this schedule change may cause the JAMMERS and OPEN SHOPPERS. We were also blind-sighted by this turn of events. Pasensya na po. This, of course, doesn't stop us, we'll adjust and will try our best to give you a fun filled event! :)
Nette and Marisa
p.s. Paki-text brigade lang po all JAMMERS and OPEN SHOPPERS. Maraming salamat po! :)
Oct 3 was World Cardmaking Day. A week late, but let's celebrate World Cardmaking Day on Saturday, Oct 10th and help out Typhoon Victims. How? Let me explain.
One of the JAMMERS had mentioned about fundraising with cards and I had to think how to do it equitably when it comes to scrap level and design na walang sasakit ang loob because their cards are not priced as much as their neighbor, etc. After all, this is for a worthy cause.
In the hospital where I work in Hawaii, we have BAKE SALES to raise funds. During bake sales, organizers and volunteers bring in baked items packed individually. They put them on tables and people come by and donate by dropping their money in the collection box and take the baked items equivalent to the donor's view as a fair value of the money he/she donated. The key phrase is FAIR VALUE.
I am looking at using the same idea nang BAKE SALE dito sa CARD SALE sa SCRAPJAM. Therefore, I am requesting all JAMMERS and OPEN SHOPPERS to please help sa cause either by donating cards, donating money and "buying" the cards, or both.
Please get your scraps, create cards between now and Friday night, bring the cards to the JAM and let's have a CARD SALE. The CARD SALE table won't be manned and will run on HONOR SYSTEM so when you guys come up to drop your donation in the collection box, no one is watching you as you grab the card or cards you think is the 'FAIR VALUE' of your donation. All proceeds sa CARD SALE will be donated to the Philippine Red Cross to help the flood victims during Typhoon Ondoy. I hope everyone will pitch in and help.
Maraming Salamat po! See you all at the JAM! Can't wait na! :D

Just a few pointers lang po for the JAMMERS:
1. If you placed preorders, especially for Distress Ink Pads, Craft Mat and Blending Tools, please come early to pick up your preorders as we will use these items during the first class.
2. If you want to get the BEST pick of products, please come early. :) We only brought limited amounts of products.
3. For the SCRAP CHALLENGE, we will need a total of 6 pictures: 1- 4x6 OR 3x5 picture and 5 wallet size (or smaller) pictures.
4. Please add to your list of supplies to bring, a 3x3 or 3x4 or 3x5 acrylic block.
For additional list of supplies to bring, please scroll down on the supplies list post.
5. YES, OPEN SHOPPERS are welcome starting 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. :) Don't miss out on great sales!
Thanks and see you all!

You’ve read about these techniques, you’ve seen them on layouts online and in magazines, and yes, Tim Holtz and Jennifer McGuire demo these techniques! So aside from wanting to be right there with Tim and Jen while they’re demo’ing, don’t you wish you could try out these techniques and see the results firsthand? Well, here’s your chance! Let’s get those hands dirty! We will be working on various techniques using products from top scrapbook manufacturers to include chipboard, inks, paints, glitter, masks, etc., and yes, we’ll even add a little bit of water! :) We will explore the beautiful effects of putting several products together and see them actually transform right in front of us. We will create a mini album of techniques you can use as reference when deciding what techniques to use on future layouts.
BLOOMS and BUTTERFLIES with Marisa
Let’s gather all those summer memories and store them in this cute 6x6 album. A very simple album sure to please everyone. We will be using a couple of techniques then add your own touch and embellishments to finish up this album. We will be using KI Memories’ Blooms papers, Scenic Route Butterfly chipboards and other products from famous scrapbook manufacturers.
NOT THE USUAL with Yoyin
Inspired by a project we created with Tim Holtz during the recent 2009 Winter CHA, this cute wall hanger is sure to please. Let’s have fun with a little ink, Tim Holtz stamps and findings, glossy papers and yes, more water!
STAR LIGHT, STAR BRIGHT with Jian
Yes, Jian is going to teach this class and can’t wait to show you this cute project! Create this cute ornament using only ONE 12x12 paper, wet glue and a piece of ribbon.
Intrigued by these classes? Don’t miss out—--PHILIPPINE SCRAPJAM on Saturday, Oct 3, 2009.
