Take me as I am

Hello!! So excited to share with you my first design team project for 7Dots Studios.  My page is about my lovely niece Fabiola, she is a very special fun girl.."Miss personality" and I chose the beautiful and fun Messy Head collection by Olga Heldwein to work it because this collection reminds me her...

My tittle is a die cut element from the "All I Ever" collection.

I created the background work with a DCWV stencil and molding paste.

I cut out all these arrows from the "Big words" paper from Messy Head collection.

These feathers are handmade and you can see the video tutorial...HERE

Make Lemonade..

Hi!! This is a canvas that I made with the new Coffee in the Arbour collection by Maja Design.  When I saw these papers I remembered a quote that my grandma used to say... and it brought me lovely memories of my childhood. So I used the phrase for the canvas! These lovely chipboard are from 2Crafty.  The papers are The Lemon meringue pie and the Delicious Moments.

I framed the lemonade illustration from the Delicious Moments paper with this pretty circular frame from 2Crafty chipboard

I added textures with molding paste and DCWV stencil and gave color with Shimmerz Sprintz (Chick-a dee, Tuscan Sun)colors.

Captured Moments...SATW Mid month reveal

Hello!! How is your summer so far? I've been disconnected  lately, I had my brother and sister in law with their families here and I took a vacation with all the family, we had  a wonderful time together.
Here's my take of the July moodboard at Scrap Around The World.
This month the fabulous moodboard was designed by the lovely Tusia Lech from Poland and I was inspired by the dandelion photo to create my page.  This page is  a lovely memory of my kids, I found my boy(almost 5 years old) that climbed in the crib with his sister(she was one year old) and he told me that she wanted to play...I took this photo of the moment, how times flies... the photo of the dandelion symbolizes for me.

July moodboard

Tusia Lech

My paper is from Basic Grey that I combined with the Tim Holtz' tissue wrap-Terminology.

I used a DCWV stencil with homemade molding paste and for more texture I added mesh tape, strips of tissue paper, pearls, stamps, cheesecloth and crochet. 

I worked with the Color Blooms- soft teal by Prima. These flowers are from Prima, too and the tiny ones from Close to my Heart.  My tittle is a chippie by Scrapmatts.

Hello scrapper friends!  I made this page with the new collection by Maja Design "Coffee in the Arbour".  It is another gorgeous collection, beautiful paper designs with lovely colors.  My lovely niece Sabrina had her first recital, she was so happy and excited.  My sister sent me some pictures and when I saw it, I knew I had to work them with this beautiful collection. 

My tittle is this pretty chipboard by 2Crafty.

I worked with two different stencils: one for Prima and the other from Heidi Swap. Prima flower, CTMH buttons.

I chose for my page the "Flourishing garden" and "Let share a cookie" papers.

I used Shimmerz Sprintz/ Vibes and Faber Castle- Gelatos.

Here's the beautiful collection that you can see .....HERE

Video Tutorial how to make feathers with Thermomorph-product review!

Hello!!! I've been asked to make a product review by Rizzy at Thermomorph weeks ago. It is a unique product called ThermoMorph which consists of moldable plastic pellets that you heat up and mold in any shape or form. You are able to instantly fix things, make things, and sculpt thing...the uses are endless.
My first concern was if it has odors or emanates vapors once I heat it the plastics up, and I can tell you that it is a safe product. It doesn't emanate any vapors or odors. It was so easy work with, you only need to put the pellets in the hot water, wait about two minutes and it turns transparent when it is ready to work with. But you have to work quickly because it dries fast. A detail I liked is that can also reuse all the leftovers from when you use it, which makes it very convenient and efficient.
 Feathers are trendy lately in scrapbooking and I wanted to make a project using them. I didn't have any so I made my own feathers using this product and I love the final result.  I made a short video tutorial and you will see how easy it is to make these awesome feathers with this product. Obviously this is moldable plastic, so it doesn't just stop at making feathers. The possibilities with this product are endless!  Sometimes we want to give a special touch to our work and with this product we can create it, completely from scratch. I just started using the ThermoMorph and I am already in love with it!

Thermomorph- $19.95
Size: 500 grams
Material: Polymorph granules

You can find it in amazon.....HERE

Perfect Moment

Today I'm sharing with you my first design team project for "Tresors de Luxe". I get out of my comfort zone this time and I come with gold and lilac colors, I was a little fearful because I'm not a fan of shining things but I love the final result.
Here is my dear Paola when she was starting to give her first steps some years ago. I started my page with a DCWV stencil and some homemade molding paste. The beautiful paper is from 7DOTS-"All I Ever" collection.   The beautiful gold lace and flowers are from Tresors de Luxe.

I worked with Shimmerz Vibes (Princess color) and  the new Prima Color Blooms (gold color)

These pretty flowers are from Tresor de Luxe...

My tittle and hearts are from 7DOTS- Elements from Illuminations collection and the stamp from Cold Country collection.

You should see all the beauties that Lucy has in her shop...go HERE

July LE kit work- My Creative Scrapbook - Part 2

Hi!! ... how are you doing this summer or winter for some of my scrapper friends?  For me super busy and next week my brother and sister-in laws come with their families, so happy for that but I have to finish all my DT commitments before the 15th...Thank that my muse doesn't leave me, she's a good buddy,lol!
Today I'm sharing with you my other two projects with the gorgeous Limited Edition kit by My Creative Scrapbook..did I tell you how
 amazing this kit is ....? You should see the list of awesome products that comes in it: full of gorgeous Prima products(frames, flowers, crystal,stencils, more flowers...) Kaisercraft- Storyteller collection, Lindy's stamp gang-mist and much more...
This page is about my hubby and DD, she adores her dad and I took this photo of them that goes perfect with these papers.

In the background, I applied gesso and then the Lindy's stamp from the kit.  I used the Prima-pearl arrows, too.

A cluster with the different flowers and embellishments from the kit. I wrote my title inside the pretty frame.

With the collar pearl, I framed my photo...and with the stencil gave textures and design in the background.

And for my last page, I worked with soft colors: beige/ blues and created this one using a lot of the stickers from the Storyteller collection.  I also used the Finnabair stencil, well I really used it in all my pages,lol, love the doily stencil! I add a piece of mesh tape from my stuff for a variety of textures.  The lace that comes in the kit is so beautiful and I used the last piece that I had here..

Is impossible not to see pearls in my work so I added it from my stuff.

I made some paper draped here to show my tittle...

love all these stickers words....and the metal pendant that I put in the top of my photo, both comes in the kit.

Gorgeous kit!!!to buy one go....HERE

See you soon...Until next time!!!
