My friends and I hang out with our good friend Cherie. Who just arrived a couple of days from the US. We haven’t seen her for a very long time. I thought of putting it on a scrapbook layout, using my own designs.

Another layout I did is for the christening of my friend’s baby boy name Albert. He was quite a miracle baby and we’re all happy to welcome here to the world.

You can download these cute 10 backgrounds for free and print it via a4 or letter size.

And these cute scrapbook tags for free to download in A4 and letter sizes. I’m sure you guys have a wild imagination that I am in for scrapbooking. Enjoy~ =)



To the Hong Kong tourist survivors and for their loved ones who passed away, I send this message to you and your family.

What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch, we may not understand why you left this earth so soon, or why you left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little by little, we begin to remember not just that you died, but that you lived. And that your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget.

My friend Mel who got me into designing Scrapbook embellishments and die-cuts, used my items for her scrapbook. Here are just some of them.

Her scrapbook theme is about her and her new baby Matthew. He was born on December 8, 2009.

Welcome baby Matthew to the world!

Now here’s another layout done by Mel with our friend Liz and her hubby Jake.

So you can download the free gift tags and scrapbook embellishments to your scrapbook just like what my friend did.

If you want to share your designs with my Pigtails, please feel free to email (thepigtails@yahoo.com) me and I’ll post it to my blog. That’s a promise! 🙂

There’s nothing like a good cup of tea to calm the nerves down. However I do love coffee or cappuccino in the morning (my savior to get me through the day). Although I like tea in the afternoon with a bit of honey. So far my, favorite tea is peppermint, lemon and orange. What’s your type of tea?

You can download them in different sizes.


I was in the bookstore a few days ago and noticed that they’re not selling calendars any more. I suppose if you didn’t get to buy them early in the year, you won’t get to buy one now. I decided to make my own.

5 Easy steps after you have download the PDF file.

First thing is, to download the PDF file here. I have 2 templates for A4 and Letter size.

Use A4 or Letter size board, about 200-220 GSM to print the design so that it will be strong.

You will need: scissors or cutter, glue, ruler, a cutting mat (optional) and pens.

Step 1: Cut the printed template onto the cutting mat. You can use old newspaper or magazine as your cutting mat.

Step 2: Before you fold them, write down the month and year onto the printed calendar. You can make the numbers bigger or smaller so you can write some important dates.

Step 3: On the dotted lines of the templates. Use one of the sharp tip of your scissors to help add crease on the board. Don’t press to hard as not to ruin the design.

Step 4. Add glue on the flap.

Step 5: Voila! The final look for the calendar. Now you can display on your desk to keep you reminded of your dates.

Cute little square Pigtails stationery. Here you can download and print it for free. I designed 12 of them and it fits perfectly to a 8.5” x 11” inches or letter size paper.

Using a cutter or scissors to cut them carefully and equally. Each square is approximately 7cm x 7cm. Just be careful when you use a cutter though. You don’t want to hurt yourself.

After you have cut them, you can use to put on your notes or little reminders of things to do. Perhaps you can even use it for your scrapbook like to add your notes about that event.

Please recycle paper. Since only one side of the print is all you need for this. 🙂

Enough me talking, you can download them here.

According to the weather forecast, we might be experiencing 4 typhoons that might head this way in the Philippines. So be prepared and bring your umbrella and rain coat with you at all times!

You can download them in different sizes.
