Creative Scrappers Blog Challenge

Hello Everyone!

Hope you are doing well.... I apologize for been MIA lately but today, I want to share with you a layout that I created to participate in the sketch challenge that is running over Creative Scrappers Blog. Their Design Team and their weekly sketches are amazing and I always take a look for inspiration from their work. To participate all you need to do is create a layout using sketches #229, #230, #231 or #232 and upload it to their blog. Due date for this challenge is November 1st and you can win a prize from Freckled Fawn products.

Here is the layout that I created for this challenge, using the sketch #230:

For this project is used A Boy's Life collection from Echo Park Paper, except for the red paper that comes from American Crafts Shoreline Collection. A while ago, I took this picture of my son in a airplane exhibition and I thought immediately in this collection. The papers are full of colors, great for any theme. I created the paint splatters using my watercolor palette and I also incorporate some wood veneers, specially the circled one to drive the attention to my son in the photo. 

Is a very simple page but I like the way it turns out. Well I hope you enjoy it and take the chance to participate in the challege. Good Luck!!

Thanks for Looking ;)

Hello Everyone!!

How are you all? Well, today I'm going to share with you a layout, some new flair and a new card kit. I made this layout using Central High,  SC Kit and some other bits from of the other kits. I used as inspiration a layout from the SC gallery created by Adrienne Alvis, I really love her style and how she perfectly layer papers and embellishments together:


I printed two instagram photos from my phone in 3 x 3 size. Because my photos had very soft tones, I keep the same soft tones on my layout. For my background I used the B side of SC Horizontal thick stripes pattern paper with a kraft cardstock and the grid paper from the Amy Tan Coffee Break paper on the Roller Rink Kit. This two photos are of my mom and my lovely daughter at our local Chuck E. Cheese. This was a really fun day where everyone was a child, including my mom. For my journaling I used the small envelope that came in Central High Kit. This is the result:

Flair Badge from my Pastels collection, available at my store

Hello Girls!

This past week, Tombow Adhesive Products arrived to our store and for that reason I wanted to make a review about them. I want to start with the new dual function stamp runner permanent adhesive (the blue one), is a solid strip runner and it is refillable. The reason why it's dual function is because its acts as a stamp and as a runner.

To use it as a runner, you just have to glide it across your paper or project as any other glider runner and you will have a continuous line of adhesive.

To use it as a stamp, you hold it up right and press down. This is great for embellishments, buttons and small parts.

I have use it for a couple of projects and I found that it is stronger than the Mono Adhesive Permanent Runner that I used previously. 

Also in the store, is Mono Aqua Liquid Glue (two tips) which is a multipurpose glue. It dries clear and has a super strong hold. The Aqua is like the Mono Multi, except the multi liquid can also be used as a re-positionable adhesive. 

And the Mono Multi Liquid Glue (two tips), this one works great holding small pieces in place as well as large ones. It dries quickly, and the only cons that I saw is that it dries "shiny" so be careful if you place it in a visible spot. Just a small amount is necessary so it last longer than other glues.

Hope you find this useful and I'll post here soon!

Happy Sunday for Everyone!

Time to share another layout! I created a layout using the new October Afternoon Midway Collection. This collection has a lot of very fun colors and patterns and my layout doesn't is fair theme but the colors worked well on it.

These photos were taken at the Orlando, FL airport when we were taking my mom to the airport to go back to Puerto Rico after she spend a couple of weeks with us. My daughter was very excited to see Snow White in 'real size' and she asked me to take some pictures with her. Was so beautiful to see her face and her eyes shining like stars...I can imagine when we can take her to Disney, will be extremely worth it!

Don't forget to participate in my GIVEAWAY, just leave a comment here
