Latest Projects and Happy Father's Day

Hello beautiful people...
Just stopping by to say hello and share the last several projects I've made and haven't posted in the blog.
This layout was about a wonderful afternoon we had after a long weekend working for a convention.  It was very relaxing knowing the event ended and that we didn't have to go to work the day after.  I'm not a Summer girl even though I live in the tropics, but I think I had forgotten how wonderful was to just chill out under the Sun in a pool or beach.  :)  The page was made in a very simple way using stickers, elements, papers and more from Simple Stories brand.
This card is for Father's Day and I used this cool stamp from Deep Red Stamps.  I have to admit I wasn't sure when I was going to use this image and still don't now if it was 100% suitable for the card, but I have to admit I enjoyed so much coloring the image...  It's a rainbow trout so I tried to emulate the colors and then used glossy accents and glitter to emphasize on them.  I then fussy cut the image to create a 3D image.  Love it.  The background was colored with watercolor painting.  Sentiment stamp is from Unity Stamp Co.

Finally, this layout was another quick and easy way to document a moment.  I used Pink Fresh products mostly and was kind of sarcastic with the page.  This was a Sunday that we were just so tired of so many happenings in our life and just stayed home to relax.  I was seated relaxed and took a photo of the flower but my husband is in the background as he didn't notice.  Suddenly I received a photo of myself... that my husband just took almost at the same time.  So the layout shows the Sunday Funday … but we were really tired and kind of bored LOL.

Thanks for stopping by.
Happy Father's Day to the fathers in your lives.

Welcome baby boy Armando...

Hey beautiful!

Hope you are all fine... I love that I made some time to play a little bit and made this card for a coworker who just became a grandma.  And when I say that I "made some time" is no joke... I've been trying to make time for the hobby lately 'cause I really need a balance.  Somehow the last year several issues has changed and the time has been split differently... so I will be back...LOL!

Anyways, made the colorful card using different patterned paper and cardstock scraps.  Also stamped the name and little friends and fussy cut to assemble my scenery.

When card is opened, it bends to stand out the name and it can be displayed with the sentiment inside that says:  precious, adorable baby boy...

Tried to add this boomerang so you can see the movement.  Hope it comes out when this post is published... Otherwise, you can visit me in Instagram (ScrapperMyra) and see how the card opens.

You can also follow me on Facebook (under Scrapper Myra as well).

It's simple in concept... but I know that the new grandma will love it... :)  The intention is that she uses it to give to his son and daughter in law.

Hope you like it too.  Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Mother's Day

Yes... Happy Mother's Day!

And Happy Sunday.

Let's celebrate the one and only, the chef, the teacher, the driver, and the friend... The ones still with us, the ones no longer here...  

The cooks, the wine lovers, the crafty, the workers...

Happy Day to all of you.

I made some tags to celebrate moms with positive sentiments and messages.  

Because we love every mom... some are stronger than others, some are sporty, some are executives, some are housewives, some are through processes...   

We love them just the way the are...  they are special and they are not alone... because they are daughters of God.

They are always in our hearts...  They worth a million... more than gold!

Some of them are in the moment to shine... their best moment and they have to take it.

Moms are courageous... they are beautiful.

They are fabulous!

They are unique!

They fight and fight for us all the time...  and they succeed.

We love our moms... even though they are imperfect.

I will share this post and creations with my friends at Latina Crafter, for the May's challenge with the twist of the love for our moms.  All the stamps and stencils used in these mixed media tags are from Latina Crafter.  You can still participate in the challenge if you want.  You can either use the twist as I did or use the sketch they provide (#94), or both.  Click HERE for more information.

Thank you for stopping by. :)

Sharing some ATC love...

Hello My dear Friends...
I have really been very busy with other aspects in my life and unfortunately am missing my hobby so much.  I hope 2019 will be different and I could find again a good balance.

I have made some ATC's that I've shared in Instagram and Facebook but hadn't posted here.  Even though a blog is not so popular nowadays, I want to continue posting my creations here and somehow keep documenting this creative journey with you all.

Hope you like my latest creations and let's make a toast for a wonderful beginning of 2019!  Cheers!

And for those who would prefer to make the toast with some coffee... here's this cup of joy!

The important thing is that we keep united by the love we have for creativity... 

… and let the wind guide us through this wonderful journey...

Thank you for stopping by...

We all need a little HOHOHO

In my last post I showed you one of the Christmas ATC's shared with my swap group...

Here's the second one.  For this one I stamped image and sentiment, and heat embossed.   I then applied Glossy Accents in the borders and used some glitter for a festive touch.  Love this sentiment...

Here's the pair of ATC's my friends received this month.  Hope you like them.

"Joy" ATC - and... Merry Christmas!

Joy... is what I wish for all of you.

Happy Holidays!!!

Hope you are having a great Christmas Day. 

I recently made my two monthly ATCs for a swap stamping group.  These two ATC's I make for 7 to 10 people are actually making me take some time for the hobby even when I don't have too much time... so it's good.  Plus, getting other people's creations help us share inspiration and art.

For this ATC I used distressed ink in different colors on the base and applied some water for blending.  I then stamped the image of the tree and heat embossed, then did the same with title.

I used some "Stickles" drops for a final touch.

There's is a lot of imperfection in the process of making several projects of same design.  But I really like that each one of the creations is unique.  

Merry Xmas!

LCSC #89 - Latina Crafter Sketch Challenge... Twist de Navidad!

Ay!, mis queridos amigos y amigas...   Llevo un tiempo muy inactiva en el pasatiempo de "scrapbooking" y tarjeteria.  La realidad es que Dios me ha bendecido con mucho trabajo y muchos quehaceres que me han mantenido demasiado ocupada, incluyendo uno que otro contratiempo de salud familiar...  Pero lo importante es que siempre saquemos un ratito para hacer "alguito".

Como ven, estoy escribiendo este post en español porque estoy participando en el Reto de Diciembre 2018 de Latina Crafter.  El "twist" del mes es el tema navideño.  Pueden acceder al enlace AQUI para participar hasta el 30 de diciembre.

Para esta tarjeta utilicé una base de cardstock y encima coloqué un patrón cortado con un "die".  Algunos huecos quedaron sin cortar completamente porque el papel era grueso y admito que muchas veces las cosas no salen como planificadas y termina gustándome el efecto o resultado.

Encima de esa base coloqué papel de diseño el cual tiene los bordes "distressed" o rasgados, y un poco de tinta.

El arbolito fue cortado con dos papeles diferentes para llenar los espacios con otro color.  Además algunas de las secciones fueron rellenadas con Glossy Accents y escarcha.

Finalmente el mensaje del sello de Latina Crafter con el tema del verdadero significado de la Navidad, fue estampado en "vellum" y repujado con polvo y una pistola de calor.  Un toque de varias lentejuelas al final... y ya.. :)

Espero les haya gustado y no olviden visitar Latina Crafter.
