Enjoy the view

I made this layout the other day.  The photos were taken on my friend's second wedding. Her daughter is my goddaughter.  


Curious thing is the layout is not about the wedding per se. I just loved to be At the wedding with this beautiful girl. She was radiant. And we were all combined with the outfits and looking good. LOL. 

So the layout is about us being good looking and that's why I used the title "Enjoy the View". 


I arranged several pieces of distressed patterned paper to frame the photos and fussy cut flowers from patterned paper and arranged with doily.  The title is a wood veneer.   Also, I traced straight lines for the handwriting journaling. 

Hope you like it.

Today's my mother in law Birthday...

Yes. It's today. And it's also Friday. Cool!!!

Hope she has a great day today. She's a special woman, loving, hard worker, humble and very cool. 

This card is inspired by her love for bright colors... or happy colors as she says. 


I used a tag as center of attention with the sentiment, and created a background stamping same image in several colors multiple times. 



Hope you like it and thank you for stopping by.

How do you start your day?

Love this image and this sentiment from Unity Stamp Co.   

How do you start your day?  I definitely have coffee in my list. Do you?

For this card I used patterned papers, bakers twine and sequins, along with stamps.  Very simple but beautiful, isn't it?


Sketch inspiration given by current Unity Show And Tell challenge in Facebook. Will share with my friends there. 


Thanks for stopping by. Have a great night/day.

Happy Birthday to a Millennial! Not!

I made this card for a co-worker who turned 55. He's a very cool person. Everybody likes him. He always jokes about being a millennial. 

For the card I used several stamps from different brands.  The message on the cover was simulating to be for a baby. 


In the interior I complete the sentence to reveal the real message alluding the fact he's a baby boomer. 


Hope you like it.

Halloween!!!

I posted this layout in social media but wanted to make sure that the few people receiving my emails from the blog, get to see it. 

It's a very simple page with multiple photos.  I've been looking at some printed photos lately and making some layouts. Love to document as much as I can but I am conscious will not be able to do it all so that's why I print photos from time to time and have  them available  just in case I feel  the urge to make a page. 


This was 2016 Halloween.  We didn't dress up at work which is not normal, and I improvised at night for the neighborhood's get together. I was a metallic witch. LOL !!!


Thanks for stopping by.

Anniversary!

Oh well. I don't know if you are like me in terms of scrapbooking...  when I started... at the beginning I wanted to make layouts and projects in chronological order. .. but then I realized this hobby is about having fun and relax. If I felt stress then it is not a hobby.  Do the order is determined by how you feel you want to make when you have time.

I have lots of pictures I printed because I wanted to make layouts.  But then I wanted to make cards... and mixed Media project... and no time... and blah blah. 


So I found these... not too old. These are from last January.  But wanted to make a layout with them. 


It was our 19th wedding anniversary this year. We just went to dinner to a great place and had great wine.  This page is to remember that. 


We'll have 20th. Anniversary on January. Wow. We should celebrate...right?

Still missing you...

Some people compare the loss of a dog to that of a relative or a human significant someone. I think is very similar and I would even say sometimes losing a dog can be even more difficult. For some the dogs are their only everyday companion. 

You are never prepared to lose a loved one but you know it will happen at some point. If that significant someone is older, chances are they will depart first even though it is not necessarily the truth.  You are also taught to be independent and live your life knowing that you must write your own destiny because your family will not last forever (neither will you). 


With dogs however you know they depend on you 100%.  I shared with my dogson everyday. He waited for me at home everyday. He was always willing to love, to cuddle, to "listen"... or just be there without complain.   He never had bad feelings toward me if I didn't let him do something or didn't allow him inside. He loved me unconditionally. I miss him a lot. 


This is a simple layout (another one) about him.  


These photos were taken 4 days before he departed.

Be you-tiful!

Hello there. 

I survived Hurricane Irma. Thank God at the last minute it didn't behave as expected and we are fine.   It was a category 5 Hurricane and would be the worst in 100 years for Puerto Rico. 

I had some little time to make a card though. I made this card inspired by the current sketch challenge going on in the Unity Show and Tell Facebook page.  It is not as exact sketch 'cause I made some variations but it is to be inspired and not mandatory.  That's why I love their challenges. Refer to the photo at the end of this post to check it out. 

For the card I stamped the image in a pink cardstock strip and colored.  I distressed edges of the cardstock and layered with pink and white patterned paper... all in the card base. 


 The sentiment was stamped at the bottom. 
I literally framed the girl image face with a metal little frame and ended up with some sequins here and there. 


I love it. Do you?


Here's the sketch reference.

Sea horses...

Wow Hello all. 

For a recent birthday I was asked to make a card for a seahorse lover. 


I used this Stamp which was a gift from Craft Stamper Magazine. I stamped it and applied embossing powder that was heat led to create a nice look. I also used glossy accents and glitter for the little horse. 


I combined with embossed paper  and cardstock plus some bakers twine. 


The sentiment stamped is from Unity Stamp Co.   I also added sequins for final touch. 

Then I was later asked to quickly make a cake topper banner so I used same seahorse stamp and combined with other elements. 


The sentiment Stamp in this case is also from Unity. 


Hope you like these projects. 

I will share with current Craft Stamper Mag challenge... anything goes.

Una Cajita Adornada

Hola. 

Usando washi tapes, papeles de diseño y sellos, adorné esta cajita para colocar un regalito para una niña hermosa. 


Corté los papeles al tamaño de las áreas que quería cubrir.  Aprovechando los diseños de los papeles corté siluetas donde estampé los mensajes. 



Luego los coloqué en la tapa con adhesivos dimensionales.  



Es una manera sencilla de hacer de un regalito algo especial y personalizado.

Navy, Gold and Blush

I wanted to make a wedding card for a sweet lady who's getting married next week.  (Of course it is also for her husband to be but I only know her). The colors of her wedding are navy blue, blush and gold. 

I used white cardstock as base and then combined blush cardstock with navy blue cardstock as second and third layers. 


Another layer was meant for the stamped sentiment framed with a wonderful gold border.  

I tried several ink colors and techniques for the sentiment, including heat embossing in gold but the message wasn't clear or legible on the navy blue cardstock.  I ended up stamping it with white pigment ink.   So I was thinking of using (or not) a white doily behind this sentiment layer. I even posted in my social media platforms a question for people to comment. Thank you all for commenting and giving me tips. It was awesome. 


Well. I decided to add the doily.  I think it provided an additional element of elegance and made the card more delicate. Maybe less formal but I think also helped to provide some dimension since the sentiment was placed with dimensional adhesives.   I also added some gold sequins that really balanced it all at the end. 

I stamped more sentiments in the interior of the card... 


I hope you like it.

Merry Christmas ... Another Card

Merry Christmas ...  Another Card

So I have to keep on making some Christmas cards whenever I can so I don't let it for the last minute. 


I made this one using the heat embossing technique for the snowflakes stamped in white over vellum. Loved the effect. 


The vellum was then glued to cardstock and to colored burlap. 
Sentiment was also stamped over vellum and three final touch was achieved with the sequins and bakers twine. 


Hope you like it.

Birthday Wishes

Happy Monday to you all!  Hope you have a great week. 

Today I am sharing a CAS card with bright colors.   Using nice patterned paper as background can help a lot to bring life to a cute simple card. This design of bright flowers is awesome. 



The image is stamped and colored in a simple way too. 
The sentiment is stamped in vellum for a delicate touch. 



This one goes for my stash... let's see who's next on having a birthday!!!



Hope you like it.

Happy Birthday Cake Topper Banner

Some girls at work asked me for a cake topper with a Happy Birthday banner.  I loved making it and personalizing it an it so it could be even more special. 


For the banner itself I started with some pre made banner flags. If i didn't have these I would had cut them by hand or with the Cricut machine.  I've seen cutting punches with the banner shape too. 

I circle punched  cardstock and vellum to add dimension and layers to the flags and used AC's tickles letters. 

For the embellishments on the sides I also used punches. For the quote clouds I used Latina Crafter 's dies and stamps. The message in Spanish is also from LC. The name "Janet" was stamped with Inkadinkado stamps. 

I made the holes in the flags with my CropAdile and used baker's twine to assemble all with brochetas sticks. 

I liked the final result a lot and the girls also did. This is a photo showing how they finally placed it at he cake. 


Hope you like it and get inspired.  Making this made me think of so many other ways to make cake toppers. I'm sure will make a lot more in the future. 

Have a good weekend.

A Happy Card

This is a CAS card I made for my husband for a special day we recently celebrated. 

I assembled the emojis cut with spellbinders.  So cool. 


I stamped the sentiment which I love and then masked it to ink the rest of the background using a sponge dauber.  


The amount of happy these emojis bring to this card is amazing. LOL. Hope you like it.

Card with pieces of patterned paper...

We recently celebrated a special day in the family dedicated to three of us who don't have any children.   To celebrate we went to a restaurant located in what we call "country" referring to the center of the island outside the metro area. Unfortunately, not all family members could be with us but we celebrated anyway because this day is very important for us and the day is established to be the third Saturday of August. 

This card was made specially for my sister in law.  I used several pieces of patterned paper and put together instead of using perfectly coordinated colors, so I can support the message about no needing to be perfect to be awesome. 


I love the sentiment, by the way... I always say I love the perfect imperfection.   Love to be imperfect!


The stamped image was colored with watercolor pencils.   I also used some sequins to add some bling. 


My sister in law loved it. Hope you like it too.
