Hi! I’m Cookie Aguilar from Manila, Philippines!!! I'm a full time mom to a 4-year old boy named Harvey and a wife to a very supportive husband named Henry. I have been scrapping for 2 years now and I’m really having a blast with this hobby!

I also love taking pictures of my family. Actually, I always have a camera with me to capture every moment and create pages to tell the story behind.

My family has been my main source of inspiration. Usually it’s Harvey on my pages. I want to record every single moment of his growing years with me and I’m so lucky that Harvey just loves to be photographed hihihi! Scrapbooking allows me to express myself fully, with no restrictions and boundaries....allows me to express my love for my family and my love for art at the same time.

I love trying new things on my layouts. Actually, I really don’t know how to call my style. But what I’ve noticed is that... I just love to layer papers on my layouts. I also love playing with colors! I like using bold colors on my pages as well as different hues of boy colors. I also love using inks, paints and chipboards on my work.

Habits? When I’m scrapping, choosing the perfect papers to use on my pages is the most time consuming part of my process. I also love fixing my things first before starting a new page. And oh, if mojos is low, I just get a glass of ice cold Coke light or Mountain Dew – makes me feel refreshed again hihihi! When scrapshopping, I never leave the store without patternpapers.
And when I have a new set of materials, I bring them to my bedside and go to sleep.

Likes??? Pattern papers and chipboards! Plus love chatting too!!!
Dislikes??? Being idle.

I’m so fortunate to be designing for 2 of my favorite manufacturers... Chatterbox and Buzz and Bloom and a couple of online stores and kit clubs. And of course, it’s a great pleasure to be guest designing for Scrap-N-Crop too! Another thing that I love about scrapbooking aside from being able to share my work is that I’m so happy to meet fellow scrappers all over the world! I really enjoy and value the friends I make through this hobby.

I still have a lot to learn in scrapbooking, and I will be more than happy to learn more and to share them with you ! Hope to be able to inspire others with my work!
