Butterfies... Come out and play .....

My stepdaughter Melissa had taken this pictures of her daughter Ariana this summer, in this picture here daddy is holding her hands, she does not walk yet, while going to the pool, I love her laugh. Right away I was found to start a Layout, and I had gotten this new set of paper by K&Company called Specialty Paper... Sparkly Sweet, they are all beautiful .
I was going to do a 3D effect on my Layouts with butterflies that I cut out from another one of the papers of this collection, once I cut the butterflies and the flowers, and using Closed to my Heart ink pads, I edge all the cut outs, I started to put everything together, I mat the pictures with also the remaining of the paper using the other side of it, for the butterflies antennas I used color wired, and rhinestones for the flowers has accents, and last but not lease my favorite, big words from Making Memories rub-ons. And love the results, I took this pictures with out flash so that the 3D effect could be seen. I think is lovely... but that laugh of Ariana is priceless.

Bookmarks for friends, with some left over papers....

Friday night I was debating between starting to read a new book or to work on some scrap project, I when for the last thought ... got up head to my working area... and I been thinking of making some bookmarks for some of my friends co-workers that love to read, but since I had some left over scrapping paper from a layout, I gathered all my material and started to work.

I cut 6x2 strip of paper, got out my Cricut machine and cut out my friends names with the remaining paper, I used the cartridge George and Basic Shapes on 1 1/2 inches sizes for the letters, I ink the edges and use clear stamps "For my friend" and also stamp the back with the phase "hand stamp especially for you" with Closed to my Heart ink pads. To add some touch to them since every name had the letter "i", I got some little flower and blings accents and pink ribbon to complete them. I was lucky to have my little Xyron sticker maker because it was of great help to put the project together really fast, I used it for the letters and the accents. Is a great little tool. I love it....

I put everything together and got this personalize bookmarks that I hope my friends will like.

My part on a Circle Journal ...

All day Saturday I work on this .... the CJ of a good friend, her name is Yamil she lives in Puerto Rico and we are exchanging work. Here you will see her instruction page very detail what she wants done for her book, actually her work is done by decorating a yellow 6x9 mailing envelope and a cardstock where the 10 things people don't know about me will be display. That is the title for her CJ.
I used 7 different combination pattern papers from K& Company, my sewing machine with two different stitches, use my Cricut machine to make the letters of my name, the signing tag and flowers.
Lets hope she like my work.
And to all of you thanks for looking...

The Love of my life...

I just created this Layout with a picture of myself with the Love of my life... Eric.

I really like using my sewing machine to create beautiful pages, and this page is a sample of my work.... I used different combination of papers from K&Company collection, rub-ons from Berry Patch Company and some prima flowers and buttons as a touch.

The picture was taken in 2004 in a cruise vacation.
