Margaritas Please!!!!

 Happy Easter my friends.
This day is precious.  Symbol of new beginnings, new life, resurrection, and love...

I hope you have a good day.

I want to share this layout I made recently.  You know I love wine, right?  But I also love margaritas.  I've decidated mini albums and pages to this delicious cocktail before, and here's another one.  

I brushed some gesso to a black cardstock and then gave a bit of green highlight with Distress Stain.
I used modeling paste with circle and chevron stencils to add some texture in specific sections of the page.
Then I sprayed color bloom in yellow and green.

I also used sequins, buttons, straws, and washi tapes, among other embellishments.

Of course I stamped the image of a cool margarita to be part of the composition as an important element.  

I reproduced the same photo fo my DH bringing two margaritas, and repeated it.  Whenever I ask him to make some margaritas for me, he does it with love and we plan a Margarita day.

Here's the whole page.  I hope you like it.  I love it. :)

Picture Perfect

Surprise!  Happy Saturday everybody!
Hope you've had a wonderful Good Friday, with families and friends and having in mind all the love God has for us.

I want to share this layout I made several days ago.  Another one of those layouts that I wanted to do without stamping or painting as I usually do, but just using old papers, scraps, embellishments and ephemera I have in my scrap room... :)

I took these photos on Christmas day...  I remember this day we were just reaxing at home after a nice Christmas Eve with family and friends.  Mom had stayed with us and we were just having fun and relaxing.  We asked Malbec (my dog-son) to get up on this couch and took some pictures... and then my DH surprised us behind...  and so Malbec did.

Hope you like this page and somehow you get inspired for your own.  Have a great day.

Curious M... CAS layout

Have I told you how much I love my dog?   It is a cool (and long) story itself the way I ended up having a dog but the truth is that I've learned so much with this unconditional love and the best friendship of all!  He is definitely my sunshine!

This is a CAS layout showing a daily routine photo.  It was a Chistmas day but it doesn't show a Christmas scene. It is just a normal daily life full of curious and lovable moments. 

Hope you liked the page and got inspired. 

Happy middle of the week.

Want to make some Cheese?

 Today is a great day to relax, get some rest, think about your blessings and don't think about all the work that awaits you next week and all the things you have pending to do... Oh God... it's me.
Anyways, I wanted to make a simple layout today.  Didn't want to work with stamps and paint and inks and mixed media... just make a simple layout with papers, stickers, washi tapes and simple embellishments.  I wanted to work with photos today.

So I grabbed some old printed photos from a very large pack I have to make layouts... LOL... Will never do all of them... I realized I will have to put them in some traditional albums 'cause I'll never make so many layouts to use all the photos I print.

So I made a double page layout about a fun day three years ago... My DH and I went with our goddaughter, her father, and a couple of friends to visit a local cheese factory and make our own cheese...  It was so  much fun, and then we went to eat at a very nice place on a lake, and had fun together.  I enjoyed that day with my friends but specially enjoyed the time with this little girl.  She's so lovable and she gets excited about everything and enjoys life.  I love her personality. :)

I worked the pages so they belong together but can also work as single pages.

The left one shows only one photo of me and my goddaughter and says "Today is a good day".

The right page features multiple photos making a photo of my goddaughter the main focus.  Title says "To Make Cheese..."  (so it works as a continuation of left page title, but also alone is a phrase that works as a single title).

I used Amy TAngerine's papers from American Crafts, and letters from American Crafts as well, and from Basic Grey.  Some stickers are from Marbella by K, and the cool plaid chipboard cow is from Martha Stewart.  I also used sequins and washi tapes, doillies, and more.

I couldn't resist and I sprayed some color bloom from Prima Marketing in both pages just for my personal touch.  I tried I tried to make it simply with papers and photos, but I think I could make the challenge by using only that little touch of spray and without stamping at all.   That's amazing!  LOL.

This is how the pages look together.

Hope you liked them and got inspired.  Please leave me your comments if you wish, and don't forget you can follow me too on facebook and instagram as Scrapper Myra.

Happy Birthday Dreamer

Hello there!

Just sharing another birthday card made recently.  For this one, I went very CAS using sprays to add color to the background as the center of the design.

I used just two flags for a simple banner... and a great sentiment to complete this.   Also used double base on the card to add a layer.

Hope you like my card...   Don't forget to have a wonderful weekend my friends.  Be imperfect, dream, get inspired and create create and create.

Do you have any birthday coming up?   There's always some birthday to celebrate.  It's good to have birthday cards available to be ready when you need them.  But those are the ones I don't usually have... it's true.

I made this card just because... thinking of using it later.

I applied several different inks to the stamp to have a colourful image/message in a tag shaped piece of cardstock.    With different circles I made a frame for the tag and made a colorful birthday card.

Great way to use scraps you have around...  don't you ever trash your scraps.  LOL

Have a great rest of the week... We are just getting closer to the weekend.  :)  Thanks for stopping by.

I will share this with current Take it Make it challenge at Craft Stamper magazine (Anything Goes). You can see it clicking this link:

Ending my Sunday... Happy Week

Hello My Friends...

It's Sunday...  Another work week starting tomorrow!

Have you started thinking about Mother's Day?  I know I know... there's still time.

Anyway, I started making some things for that day, and one of them is this little house decor gift.

I used a wooden frame and applied some stain paint to the borders.  Then embellished with patterned paper, doilly, sequins and stamps.
The stamped butterfly was heat embossed and then cut.  Love it.

Hope you liked this and somehow you get inspired... if not for Mother's Day, maybe for Easter... that is coming sooner than you think!  LOL.

Have a great week!

Easter Dog... Why Not?

Hello dear friends.

It is almost Easter... yess...  Just in a few weeks to celebrate new life and new beginnings...  Wait... that should be everyday... LOL.

I made this layout the other day.  This was Easter a couple of years ago.  My dog son enjoying his egg hunt to find cookies and treats.  Unfortunately we cannot give them so many nowadays... we have to be careful with his diet... But he will certainly enjoy this year's Easter somehow.  A picnic might be a good idea.. huh?  Let's see.

For this page, I used several patterned papers, stamps and embellishments.  Hand cut egg shapes and grass, plus handwriting for journaling to add a personal touch.  

Hope you like it and this might inspires you for your own personal project.. :)
