Mini album "Blue Submarine" (Tutorial)

agosto 21, 2019 0 Comments
Hello everyone!
Summer still hasn't gone so you take advantage!
Today I'm going a show you how to make a super mini album
with only three scrap papers and a lot of imagination.
(Tutorial en Español aquí)
Supplies that you will need:
-4 white cardstock pieces of 2 15/16"x3 3/4"
-"Sea Time" back cover
-"Comunión Niño - Buen viaje"
-"Sea Time - Ocean friends"
-Ephemeras "Sea Time - Expedition"
-Chipboards "Background Fishes", "Lighthouse" and "Sailing badges"
-Black marker, acrylic paint (black, white, yellow and blue) and gold metallic paint
-Acetate, glitter and sequin for shakers
-Tools for cutting, gluing and inking the edges, 3 eyelets and hole punch, corner punch, one ring, some embellishments like enamel dots, die cuts, flowers, doilies...

Let's start!
First step is to draw the submarine. After that you should make 3 layers (or more): cover, middle page and back cover. Then draw the picture on the cardboard and the scrap paper and cut them. You need 9 cardboard circles of 1 3/8" diameter too. Remove the inside of 6 of them leaving a edge of 3/16". Make 3 scrap paper circles and keep the inside.
After that inked and/or painted the edges.
Before decor make a hole in all the pieces to place the ring and embellishments without problems.
Put the white cardstock pieces on the scrap paper. I've used only 4 but you can make flips, waterfalls...
Use the paints to decorate the white cardstock. You can also use stencils, stamps... And a little trick for you: cut some cardboard pieces of 2mm with the same size as white cardstock and glue them below to give volume. Play with the embellishments making layers too. I don't recommend using foamy or anything less hard than cardboard.
Now make 3 portlights shakers.
Cut a little piece of acetate that covers the paper circle and glue it below.
Glue 3 cardboard circles one on top of the other and cover the base with the inside of the scrap paper circle that you keep. Once dry add glitter, sequins... and glue the circle with acetate to close the shaker. The more circles you have the more space you have for embellishments.
Make some details with the black marker that stand out the submarine. I've used golden paint, pearls and some other embellishments to finish the decor.
When you finish all the scrap pieces glue them to the cardboard, then put the eyelets and insert them in the ring, you can also use ribbon too.
I'm so wishy-washy but you can use something like a tassel for embellishment the ring.
And that's it!
An easy peasy mini album!
I hope you liked this idea for your summer photos. 
See you in the fall!

Bee Layout

agosto 07, 2019 8 Comments
Hello everyone!
Little time is left for summer's end and holidays... in other words: back to work!
Although there are some small creatures that still work right now: bees!
And, as the saying spanish goes: "By San Miguel (29th September), the beehive filled with honey"
The fall still is not here but I wanted to anticipate with this LO to pay tribute to our friendly bees.
Kora Projects has designed a new chipboards, one of my favorites is this beautiful bee, how beautifull looks with this photo by Marjan Smeijsters.
And these little flowers, pearls and micro beans...
I love living in the countryside but bugs gives me the heebie-jeebies, whole dilemma! 
However bees have something special, maybe because I live in land of beehives. 
Have a good summer end!
With this project I participate into the following challenges:

Juicy and sweet "Dream Card"

agosto 03, 2019 14 Comments
Hello everyone! 
In August the fruits are picked in the orchards of my village so I've where to look for inspiration: cherries, plums, blackberries...
В августе фрукты собирают в садах моей деревни, поэтому у меня есть, где искать вдохновение: вишни, сливы, ежевики...
Of course I decided to make a card that showed my predilection for red fruits. 
Конечно, я решила сделать открытку, которая показывала мое пристрастие 
к красным фруктам. 
And these delicate flowers (48 Little boy-2 and 28 Little boy
make a very lovely contrast between so much red color.
И эти нежные цветы (48 Little boy-2 и 28 Little boy) создают очень приятный контраст 
между таким большим красным цветом. 
So enjoy the rest of summer and eat a lot of fruit!
Juicy and sweet day for you!
Так что наслаждайтесь отдыхом лета и ешьте много фруктов ! 
Сочный и сладкий для вас день))

 With this card I participate in the following challenges:

LO "Back to School"

agosto 01, 2019 0 Comments
Hello everyone!
The last month of summer has come. 
June and July passed away unnoticed and soon begin preparation for school. 
Someone for the first time in the first class or someone plans to continue to study.
I used this cute svg file by Lilium Pixel SVG and some elements from Little Moss
My husband and I don't have children (yet) so I can only remember my school days.
I hope you have a good summer end!
