One Fine Day Scrapbooking Layout- My Creative Scrapbook


 Happy New Year!! I hope you are doing well. It's been a long time since my last post here and one of my goal in this new year is to do more blog posts, let's see if I can do it.
Today I'm sharing with you my first project using the 2022 January Limited Edition kit by My Creative Scrapbook Kit Club. It is a gorgeous kit featuring: Simple Stories and 49 and Market. 

I made this page about hubby and I from our trip to the Niagara Falls. I used the Simple Stories papers from the kit with the laser cuts and flowers from 49 and Market. You can watch the creative process in the video tutorial that I left for you through the link at the end of this post.

I adore these little yellow flowers by 49 and Market that I layered between all the paper flowers that I cut out from one of the pattern papers.

I added four wide eyelets to give a touch of a metallic look on my page.

I love the final result and I hope it inspires you! I will frame this layout to exhibit on my house wall.  Here's the video tutorial and I hope you enjoy it!!

Thank you so much for stopping by...until next time!

Never Stop Exploring Mixed Media Layout- 49 and Market

Hello my friends! It have been a long time without make any blog post here, the last one was in October 2018, wow,can you imagine.  But I'm not going to talk about all the things that happened to me right now. These are incredible days with lot of challenges to all of us. I think we are lucky to have this hobby that help us to relax, to stay a little calm, well depends each circumstance but in my case it helps me so much. I hope all of you are well, safe and can stay home. 
Now I"m going to share you a beach theme layout that I've been made for 49 and Market with the video tutorial.
Let's get started....

Hola mis amigos ha sido un largo tiempo sin hacer ninguna publicacion aqui, el ultimo fue en Octubre 2018, wow se imaginan.  Pero no voy hablarles ahora de todas las cosas que me sucedieron . Estos dias son increibles con muchos retos para todos nosotros. Yo pienso que nosotros tenemos suerte de tener este pasatiempo que nos ayuda a relajarnos, a estar mas calmados, bueno depende de cada circunstancia pero en mi caso me ayuda mucho. Espero esten bien, seguros y puedan quedarse en sus casa.
Ahora les voy a mostrar una pagina con video tutorial de tema playero que he hecho para 49 and Market.
Vamos a comenzar....
I started applying a coat of clear gesso to the Underwater Treasure paper from the Shipwreck collection. This one has soft colors that go perfectly with the lovely photo by Emily Goodhart. I applied gel medium to the laser cut frames and starfish to make them more sturdy. I gave textures with a stencil and modeling paste to the paper. Once dry, I started to add acrylic paints to the background in very similar colors to the photo in light blue and ivory. While the paints were drying, I framed the photo.

Comenze aplicando una capa de gesso transparente al papel Underwater Treasure de la coleccion Shipwreck. Este tiene unos colores suaves que van perfecto con la foto de Emily Goodhart. Le aplique del gel medium a los cortes de laser marcos, estrellas de mar para endurecerlos mas. Le di texturas con una plantilla y pasta de modeling al papel. Una vez seco, comenze a dar color al papel con pinturas de acrilico en colores similares a la foto in azul suave y crema. Mientras las pinturas se secaban, enmarque la foto.

I adhered a piece of cream Lacey Trim and on top, a piece of white cheesecloth, next I glued the frames and photo.
I took a piece of Jute Cording- 5 Ply and made three knots and adhered it to the bottom part of the frame, it gives a nautical look to the page. I started to embellish the page with the flowers: Enchanted Petals- Parchments and the Flower Mini-Series- Tangerines. I also added the Never Stop Exploring chipboards, layered embellishments, and laser cuts. I stamped randomly on the background with the Pascale’s Ration Stamp Set and Archival Ink.

Pegue un pedazo del encaje cream Lacey trim y encima un pedazo de gasa, luego pegue los marcos y foto.  Tome un pedazo de cordon de jute y le hice tres nudos y lo adheri al pie del marco, est le da un toque nautico a la pagina.
Comenze a decorar la pagina con: flores- Enchannted Petals- Parchments y las Mini Flores- Tangerines. Tambien le puse los chipboards Never Stop Exploring, los adornos Layered Embellisments y cortes en laser de la misma coleccion.  Estampe aleatoriamente usando el sello Pascale's Ration Stamp con tinta negra Archival.

Finally, I added some mini art stones and regular art stones with gel medium. I adhered some blue bubbles from the Layered Embellishments. I also glued some pearls and added some white paint splatters around all the work.

Finalmente, Le puse  Mini y regulares Art Stones que adheri con gel medium.  Pegue algunas burbujas del paquete de Layered Embellisments.  Tambien pegue algunas perlas y le di salpicaduras de pintura blanca alrededor del trabajo.

I made a step by step video tutorial that I hope you enjoy…

Fall layout with Beautifully Brisk by Bo Bunny

Hello everyone!  I share with you today a fall layout that I created using the Beautifully Brisk collection. Fall is my favorite season I love the colors everything looks so beautiful and I had so much fun working with this beautiful collection.
I started making circular stitches in the area that I'll place the photo on the Bright pattern paper. I took a sponge with white gesso to give the sponging technique on the background, it gives a nice texture.

I used the layered chipboard and the Noteworthy die cuts to decorate and make the composition. I cut a clock using the Tick Tock die.

I painted a piece of cheesecloth in green color and added between the layers to add more dimension and textures.

The collections comes with brads, layered chipboard and die cuts that makes it easy to design with.

I adhered the die cuts and some chipboard pieces with dimensional foam dots.  I added a few brads, pearls and jewels to enhance the background.

Finally, I added white paint splatters over all  the background and I love the final result. I hope it inspires you, Thank you so much for stopping by today! Have a creative day! xo

Land of Wonders projects

Hi there! I have two projects to share with you today. I'm using the beautiful Land of Wonders collection by Bo Bunny. I made a journal cover and a layout, let's take a look..
I just love the beautiful colors and designs of the Fall of Wonder collection that I bought a journal at the Dollar store and covered it using different papers. My base paper has the wood design and adhered a few red torn pieces of paper to the cover. It's a way to give any journal some new pop.

I made the "journal" word using the glitter letters by American Craft. I adhered the adorable cups from the Layered Chipboard package.

I cut  and adhered a few butterflies from the papers with  3D foam tapes, it gives a realistic effect. You can see here the dimension on the cover.

I gave white paint splatters to add textures.

I covered the back cover with the red paper, then I cut some images from the papers to decorate it. I had so much fun altering  this journal. I hope it inspires you to give a try.
Pattern Papers: Land of Wonder- Woods, Roses, Curiosity
Layered Chipboard: Land of Wonder
Sticker: Land of Wonder
Noteworthy: Land of Wonder
Brads: Land of Wonder
American Craft: Black cardstock
Sticky Thumb Dimensional Dot

 My second project is a simple but fun layout, I used different papers and colors from the same collection...

 This paper is one of my favorite from the collection , I love the tea cups with the butterflies.  I started adding more textures on the background with the Circular Textures stamp and the Color Wheel Ink . I also dyed a piece of cheesecloth with the same color ink.

This is a fun photo of me and this adorable cat that I took in a recent trip to Maryland .  I cut a doily in black cardstock with the Mandalay Die and put it behind the picture. This collection has beautiful die cuts that I used to make layers behind the photo and to embellish my page.

I added some brads and made the title using one die cut with one chipboard from the collection.

I adhered the die cuts with foam dots to give dimension and provide interesting details.

My last step was adding black paint splatters. I hope it inspires you to create something fun. Thank you so much for stopping by...until next time!

Steampunk Album _ Peru class with photos

Hello everyone! I just came back from Lima, Peru where I was teaching mixed media-scrapbooking classes invited by Vidalina Flores Alarcon from the store Lapiz de Papel . The last day Sunday, I had a steampunk album class using the Imagine collection by Graphic 45 and the Creative Embellishments chipboards, and stencil. I share with you the project and also a few photos of the event.
This is the Regular Book Box by G45 that comes with a tag album. I covered all the exterior and interior of the box with papers from the Imagine collection by Graphic 45.   I gave textures on the cover and spine of the box using the Crackled Brick Stencil by Creative Embellishments with modeling paste by Prima Marketing.

I gave a rusty effect and added dimension  to all the chipboards with the Finnabair Rust pastes. I used the Gear 1 1/2″set and the Mini Gears 3/4″ (set of 12) .

Once you open the box you find the mini tag album that I worked using the Crackled Brick stencil to add texture with the stone effect pastes by Finnabair. 

I cut some gears using the Regular Tag and Gears Die by Graphic 45 to decorate some of the tags. I hung up a piece of cheesecloth from the album’s ring tying some chipboard gears.

I decorated the tags with different images that I cut out from the papers and a few rusty gears.

The album has seven tags that we worked both sides.

Now I want to share with you some photos of the Sunday class in Lima Peru by Lapiz de Papel- store. I had a wonderful time with all these lovely ladies so much fun and good vibes!!! I don't feel I was is like a crop of scrapper friends... Thanks to all the ladies that attended my classes..Thanks for all the love!! xo
