Love Letters

Happy Sunday everyone. I have been meaning to post this one for a while.   Last month we went to a wedding and I snapped this one of my DD
I thought she looked so perfect ni her pretty dress and red just suits her so much.  Well when I went to pick up my prints the lab tech surprised me with a 5x7 sepia copy and I thought it would be just the perfect addition to Webster's Western Romance collection.  It took me 3 hours to unite all my fuzzy cutting into one LO and here is the result, I think it was all so worth it:

This paper I cut following the scallops,  had a lot of dots and I thought they looked like lace, but were too pale and needed to be accentuated , hence the 5 rows of pearls...
These Prima birds are TDF cute!!!

My journaling perfectly tucked in behind the photo and easily pulled out by a cameo pin!

I don't know if you have seen this video, but the first time I saw it was in Nickelodeon with my kids and I cried ( I know...) when I saw it, so take a peek and enjoy the world united!!!



10 of my Fave's chipboard projetcts

I drool over Imaginarium chipboard, dreaming of the day I'll be able to have it in my hands and play with... Chipboard and I go way back when I figured how to x-acto a scroll to decorate a Christmas page for my son way back in 2005.  Then the market started pouring in the fab material I could distress at my will, love at first sight ever since.  More recently they started adding laser cuts (insert ahhhhh here) and they made it even cuter.  Since there is a good chance I can play with it I have prepared this entry for Imaginarium.

My most fave chipboard projects:

Chipboard is pretty in its own right, so here is a LO made with raw chipboard I just love the contrast of the almost kraft look with pastels

This is a Christmas project I made die-cutting chipboard and dressing it up with paper, paint and glitter. It just got featured at the Scrap for Help blog.

This one used to be a flat ornate frame, I wanted to make a 3d box to make a prayer decoration for my daughter's bedroom.  With some more chipboard to make the box I ended up with this, finished in paint and glitter

Inspired by a drawing I made on a LO for my daughter's first piano recital, I designed my own chipboard and cut and finished it for this LO.  There is a picture of the chipboard and the one with the drawing.

More naked chipboard....

This used to be flat chipboard houses that I converted to a 3d version, I love doing home decor and off the wall projects and this one was featured on the Crate Paper blog.

This one is a card I made dressing up the chipboard with embossing powder for texture and also covering in paper.

This one is a Christmas ornament, I painted with acrylics and then covered in glossy accents for a glass like effect, the scroll is done with glitter

This one is a close up view of an inked and embossed piece of chipboard I embellised for a card.

And this one is a cupcake box I made entirely out of chipboard all dressed up in paper and sequins

And I can tell you for sure the recipient loved it as much as I did creating it and its pattern.

I hope you enjoyed browsing over my fave projects, some time it is so hard to choose since I pour so much love when I make them. I know I am missing Halloween and Easter they are in the blog I just had to pick just 10!
I will be doing a lot of project this week so stay tuned to what's coming over,


Arbolito, arbolito...♪♪♪

Campanitas te pondré, quiero que seas bonito, que al Recién Nacido te voy a ofrecer ♪♪♪...This is a beautiful Christmas song offering the Christmas Tree to the Newborn Child, and that is the theme of my LO today.  December brings beautiful Christmas trees to the island and we can't wait to smell, touch and have a new one.  We always wait until December so they last longer.  Here in Puerto Rico we celebrate the 25th of December but also, the 6th of January when we celebrate the Epiphany, the coming of the Three Kings, or Wise Men to adore  baby Jesus.  So the tree stays put until January when the kids receive their last presents and then return to school shortly after!
OUAS challenge for this month is to journal about the thinsg we look forward in December, and one of them is the picking of the Christmas tree.  This year we found some funky ones, real ones painted in cool colors, I almost couldn't resist, they were so pretty.  We ended up picking an 8 footer that was perfect to hold our long collection of ornaments, so here it is!

see what I mean about those trees???

My journaling
A peek at what I did, since it was a mail box I saw fitting to xacto an entrance and write the date, and I couldn't resit to put some sparkle in the Fairy wings ;) !

And the final page, I used Nadia's beautiful sketch

And here is the song my LO's title is inspired in, it's a school play, but the song is perfect, enjoy, Milagros!
