Babies :)

Hello scrappers! Are you glad is almost weekend? I am! I need some rest, this week has been kinda busy at work so I'm really looking forward to relax a little bit and spent time with my puppy :) since I'm not around the house during the day on work days she gets really lonely, so at night or during the weekends is when I have time to play with her. So let me introduce you to my precious girl Ruby, she's a beagle and she's 5 months old, so she's still a baby, a very stubborn baby :P

My bf takes her to the park every night and she really likes it, she likes to run like crazy with her friends; beagles are very friendly so any dog she meets at the park becomes her friend immediately :)

That is the face she makes after being mischievous; she has a thing for sandals I don't know why, but so far she has destroyed 2 pair of sandals! :s ohh well at least I have a reason to buy new shoes ;)
Since we're talking about babies, I thought I might share with you a card I created this week :) My mom asked me to create a card for her coworker who recently had a baby boy, so I was lucky enough to find this paper from Making Memories (Animal Crackers). I must say that it took me awhile to finally create a pretty bow :P

What do you think? I hope the new mom likes this card as much as I do :)
Enjoy your weekend!

A Wedding Layout

Hi scrappers!! Well that was a long week of not posting anything! Bad blogger, I know but today I have a layout to share with you, it is actually a gift I will send to a friend that recently got married. I wasn't able to go to her wedding because of work, but I hope she will like this present. I really wanted to do something special for her because I won't see her until next year since she will go to Rumania with her husband as a missionary for a year! I'm really excited for her, Rumania sounds like a really fun and interesting place to go :)

In this layout I had the chance to use for the first time my retro flower punch! I really like it. I followed Debbie's Flower Tutorial, if you have a chance to check out her blog you'll be inspired with all the things she makes, she's very talented.

I had this layout framed so she can take it with her, I think it looks much better with a frame :) What do you think?
Well I better get going, I need to go to the Post Office ;)
Happy scrapping!

My dream scrapbook room

Well here I am making another post for this day and this time I want to share with you my dream scrapbook room :) I currently don't own designated space to scrap since my apartments is really small so I do everything on the table I have between my kitchen and living room lol! I store some goodies in a shelf I bought from Home Depot...

And I store the papers and alphas in this box, I haven't even used some of them...

So wondering around some scrapbook room pictures I fell in love with this studio! This is Wendy Smedley's scrapbook room, she’s the Creative Editor of Simple Scrapbooks Magazine! Isn't it gorgeous? She has everything so organized and neat :)

I really like the room because my favorite color is light blue (actually any shade of blue) and the combination with the white desk and shelfs makes the place look cleaner and organized :) I also like the fact that there's enough light entering into this room, I don't like dark rooms because I feel like I'm in a cave lol

So how about you? How does your scrapbook room look like? Do you have a dream scrapbook room?
I hope that in a few months or years from now I can improve my scrapbook space.
Have a great weekend!!

Back to school?

Hi guys! Well I finally had time to create something! Today is the bday of one of my best friend so I decided to create a bday card, even though I won't see her until next week because that's when school starts at my hometown university I thought I would give her a card that welcomes her back to school too.

I decided to use Teacher Anya from The Greeting Farm Stamps, because she's going to be a teacher when she graduates from college. I tried to make the image look like a 3D image, just like the tutorial I mentioned the other day. I'm not sure if you can really see it on this picture but I think it turned out good for being my first time :) what do you think?

For this card I used the current Carol's Sketch at her blog challenge. I really like to create cards because I can create them faster than layouts :)

I hope you all have a happy scrapping day!

I'm feeling purple

Hi guys! Today I wan to share with you the card I created yesterday for the Carol's Sketch Fun Challenge. I'm happy with the way it turned out, what do you think? I hope you can see the picture, I need to find a tutorial on taking better pictures :P

Carol's challenge closes on Aug 11th, so if you want to play you still have a chance :) you can rotate and flip the sketch.

Her challenges run every 2 weeks, so you have plenty of time to get inspire and create something.
Happy scrapping!

So many goodies

Hi guys! How's your week going so far? Mine is quite busy at work, so you can imagine that I haven't had time to craft :( I'm glad is almost weekend and like I told you the other day I had a chance to go to Michael's and I'm glad I went because I had 2 coupons for 40% off, so I just can't wait to use what I bought!! I finally have my paper trimmer, I'm really happy :D can you imagine I had to cut everything with scissors?? It took hours to create one layout, but hopefully with this tool I'd be able to create layouts or cards faster.
I couldn't get the edge punch I wanted but I got a flower punch instead and hopefully I can add more flower touches to my layouts. After I read Debbie's flower tutorial I've been waiting to get a flower punch for so long.

As you can see in the picture, I got an album and 2 paper packs, yey! I'm paper freak because I'm always looking to buy more and more paper lol I also got a set of stamps and a small ink pad, some alphas and rub ons. I've never used glitter before but I've seen many of you use it and it looks soo gorgeous on cards, so I got a small glitter bottle to try out. I was actually wondering... where do you store all the layouts you create? I have a feeling that I need to put them all in albums so they won't get damage :P it's just a newbie question.
Have a super scrapping day!

What's your dream vacation?

Hi guys! I've been so busy this past week that I haven't had a chance to take pictures of the goodies I got from Michael's. I hope I can make some time tonight to take pictures, by the way if by any chance you have time to go to Michael's they're having 40% off coupons and a lot of things are on sale! So cool! Of course I took advantage of that last week :)
Anyway, since I don't have anything to share with today I was just wondering what is your dream vacation? I don't have vacations until Xmas, so right now I'm taking advantage of all the days off I can have! LOL
I think my dream vacation is Australia, I don't know why but I've always wanted to go there. Maybe because I've seen a lot of National Geographic videos about that place :P So here I share with you just a pic of the place I want to go from Australia: The Opera House!

Another place I would like to go is Vancouver, Canada. I think Canada is a very beautiful country and I'm hoping I can have a chance to go there one day, hopefully I can go for the Olympics and go to the Figure Skating competitions :P, that would definitely be a dream come true.

So what about you? What's your dream vacation?
