Smile

Hello! I was waiting for a photo to work this pretty roosters paper, I love the country look here,  It is from the Vintage Spring Basics collection by Maja Design. My hubby took this photo to my daughter this Summer at Kings Dominion Park in Virginia and the colors are perfect with my papers. These beautiful laces and flowers are from Tresor de Luxe and the pretty chippie(tittle) is from 2Crafty Chipboard.


 I draped a paper to create dimension and mat my photos with the lace.


I love this pretty lace applique and look at these pretty rooster..love this paper! 



For more textures I used a mask and molding paste and I painted the big flower with mist.

Cute

Hello!  Here's my new page for Tresor de Luxe using their beautiful laces and flowers.  This page is about my boy Alexander when he was a baby crawling around the apartment.  I started my page using the beautiful tulle lace to cover my upper page, then I painted and stamped with the new Finnabair stamps by Prima.  The frames are from 2 Crafty Chipboard and the papers from Maja Design- Spring Vintage Basics collections.



I painted the small lace flowers with Glimmer mist, they come in a trim and you find it in Tresor de Luxe shop.

I cut the pretty big flower by half to layer my photos. I traced the feathers in a paper and then I cut them to decorate my page.

So hard...to see you go

Hi!! Today I want to share you my second project for 2Crafty Chipboard.  I come with a boy page about my son.  He spent the summer with us here in NC but he returned to study in PR, but it's always hard to see him go. I took these pictures on the day he left...

I mixed in this page the clock, frames and film stripes chipboard. I started off by applying modeling paste wit a sponge to all the frames then I applied coat of gesso, next I painted with distress ink(blue and beige) colors.

I used a twill ribbon and washi tapes to create textures in my background work.  Then I applied molding paste with a mask, next I used gelatos, Ranger-distress stain, acrylic paint, distress inks, watercolor pencils.
 

All the little film strips were just the perfect thing to use with all the pics.

The skeleton clock frame tucked in at the side.  Flowers are from Prima.

In Our Sofa- Welcome to My Scrapbook Room Tour!

Hello!! Today is my turn at Maja Design blog to share my creative space..."In Our Sofa".  My scrapbook room is my paradise, I moved to NC eight months ago and I took the smallest room of our apartment that is near to a big tree full of beautiful birds like Cardinals and other species that are singing all day. For that reason my desk is near to the window and I can see and listen all these beautiful creatures meanwhile I was creating my pages, it is like a paradise for me...priceless!  My scrapbook room is not gorgeous or fancy, it's a 10 x 10 room that is very practical and functional for me.
Let's get started with the tour...
Here's how it looks from the door. To the left you see my work area(desk), the double doors in the back is the closet.  In the right side you see my sewing machine and "Juanita" that is how I called my dress form, lol!

Up front you'll see my complete work area, in the left you see my photo printer and under it a drawer where I keep my cardstocks and papers.  I will tell you a secret...how do you think I paid for this desk?  I paid twenty five dollars for it in a Goodwill Stores....awesome!!  I left most of my scrapbooking furniture in Puerto Rico and I only brought a few things. I had to buy almost everything again so I was looking for good bargains.  So I was happy with this buy.  In the bottom right is my baby boy "Sponky" he is my 14 years old dog...always besides me.

In these small drawers I keep my Liquid pears, Stickers, Chalk Inks, Gelato, etc...
In the top of my desk, I have plastic jars with flowers, ribbons, laces, pearls and embellishments. I also have some of my work and some gifts like the beautiful cards that my friends Ingrid Gooyer and Maritza Valdez sent me for my birthday.  The things I used the most you see them on the shelf.


Behind the small door you will find my stencils, doily papers, stamps, mesh tape...

I bought this rolling organizer in clearance at Michael's and I love it very functional. It's perfect for my mists, paints and mediums.

My hubby put hook under my desk and I can hang my heat tool, glue dispenser  in this way...very practical!

When you open the double doors that is what you find.  I design for different companies and here is where I keep all their products in plastic organizers and in white boxes. Each company has their own plastic box and I organizer by collection, embellishments, etc... I also keep my Cricut machine and my Cuttlebug.

This is the view from the window.  I bought this industrial sewing machine before I started to study Fashion Designer twenty seven years ago.  The big furniture was a gift from my mom and I brought it from Puerto Rico.
This is the place when I keep my sewing notions, laces, embellishments, tools, die cuts, punches, etc..


One drawer for my threads and the other for my punches.  I also keep my laces and embellishments in plastic boxes.

I keep my die cuts and embossing folders in these plastic containers from Dollar Tree.  I also recycle the transparent plastic containers from fruits to keep embellishments, flowers, etc... it is easy to see the things in this way.

In this corner you will find flowers, buttons, pearls and more flowers...

These two basket are full only of Prima flowers and embellishments...

In the top drawers...you will find my metal embellishments and in the second drawer my chipboard.
Another drawer for flowers, other drawer for my buttons that I keep them by colors.


Here are my  stamps and alpha dies.

Well like you see I have everything organized without expense a fortune.  I hope you enjoyed my scrapbook room tour...Thanks for your visit!! :)
