Hats Off Projects for Doodlebug Design

Hello my dear friends, how are you today? As for me, I'm super excited to share the projects I've made using Hats Off collection. I have these pics since I graduated from college, 15 years ago (I'm old!!!) and never scrapped them because never found the appropriate collection to do it so.... until Doodlebug geniouses came up with this and I knew the moment to undust my old grad pics had arrived.

I dont have too many pics and most of them wew taken with an analog camera, (yes, I AM THAT OLD! LOL!)  so I scanned my pics and printed in a more convenient size to use them on my pages. 

I love the shades of black, white and silver of this collection, it's really beautiful and very adult at the same time. I combined it with some blue basics to match the colors of my Alma Mater, Universidad de Santiago.   

In my first layout I used some layers and round pics, I love the cute graduated owls included on the Odds & Ends package.

I also love the clear acetate elements included, I used some here and there as well. 

Don't you just love all the silver in this collection? In general I love metallic details on paper and embellies and this collection really rocked that. 

For my second layout I usedmy fave grad pic, I look so serious and formal receiving my award, so proud as well. 

I created some kind of embellishments cascade and used a lot of elements from the odds & Ends package, sprinkles, and also some ink splatters.  Again, the little graduated owl was my chosen embellie, how cute is that!  

I created my title using a phrase from the Odds&Ends package and letter from the blue Teempsy Type Alpha.

I really had a lot of fun working in these layouts, this collection is really different from regular Doodlebug Design items and I LOVED it! Also I had a good laugh with my little girl showing her my graduated pics, she just thought I looked ridiculously funny in my cap and gown, LOL!

I hope you got some inspiration from my layouts and decide to scrap your graduation pics as well, it's a beautiful excersise to remember good old days, isn't it?

Have a wonderful day!

Minialbum: Animal Kingdom for Doodlebug Design

Hello there peeps! Today I want to share here a project I posted some days ago at Doodlebug Design blog with my fave kind of project: mini albums!  I love minialbums because they allow me to use lots of pics and also lots of embellishments and pretty paper.

Two years ago I had the chance to visit Animal Kingdom in Walt Disney World and it was an awesome experience for me and my little girl. I took a ton of beautiful pics but didn't find the perfect collection to scrap them... until my friends from Doodlebug Design launched At The Zoo collection. When I saw this fabulous line I knew it was a wise decition to wait, it's simply perfect!

I had a lot of fun working on this mini, and more important, I had a lot of fun remembering all the good times I spent with my daughter and our friends that day.  No more talking and here is my minialbum, love how it came out!

I used a simple ring binding because I wanted to have a lot of pages and pics in this mini, so I used my Bind-It-All for putting it together.

As in all my minis, I used some vellum pages where I printed some journaling, I love the transparency effect of these pages.

Some pics were too big and didn't fit the size of the pages of the mini so I cut them in two and join them back with some washi tape, thus I can fold it and make it fit in the mini.

I hope liked this post and get some inspiration to use this fabulous At The Zoo collection. I really loved the results, this is one of my fave minis so far!

Thanks for stopping by today, have a great weekend!

Hola! Cómo están? Hoy les quiero mostrar dos layouts que hice como parte de las actividades de celebracion del Dia Internacional del Scrapbook hace algunas semanas con mis chicas de Jillibean Soup.
Hello there! Today I want to share here these two layouts I made as part of the celebration of iNSD some weeks ago with my girls at Jillibean Soup.

Hubo varias actividades, pero yo participé con los retos de sketchs. El Sketch #1 fue diseñado por Summer Fullerton, es este: 
There were a lot of activities and i got to participate in the sketch ones. Sketch #1 was designed by Summer Fullerton, here it is:

Me encantó la idea de poner muchos pedacitos de papel y elementos juntos abajo, es un sketch precioso. Acá está mi interpretación:
I loved the idea of placing a lot of paper pieces on the bottom of the page, its such a pretty sketch. Here is my take:

La foto es de mi Isidora cuando tenía un poco más de 3 años, era adorable ❤ Usé papeles y adornos de la hermosa colección Summer Red Raspberry, que sigue siendo una de mis favoritas de todos los tiempos de Jillibean Soup.  Corte las flores con una matriz de Dear Lizzy y mi Cuttlebug. 
I used this pric of my little gir when she was just 3 years old, she was adorable ❤ The papers and embellies are from Summer Red Raspberry, which is still one of my fave ones by Jillibean Soup. I cut the flowers using a die by Dear Lizzie and my Cuttlebug.

El Sketch #2 fue diseñado por Kristine Davidson y también me gustó mucho, bueno, ya saben que amo los sketches de Kristine :) 
Sketch #2 was designed by Kritine davidson and I loved it, well, y'all know I'm nuts about Kristine sketches anyway :)

Usé una foto de mi hija hace un par de semana, un día salimos a dar una vuelta en bici por el parque y se la tomé. Esta es mi interpretación:
I used a pic of my little girl I took few weeks ago, we were taking a bike ride at the park and I got to snap it. This is my take of the sketch:

Usé la hermosa colección Bowl of Dreams que me encanta, su colorido y los diseños so tan bonitos, es perfecta
I used gorgeous Bowl of Dreams collection, I really love the colors and patterns in this collection, it's perfect

Me encantó celebrar el iNSD, aunque quizás de manera más tranquila que otros años, pero bueno, al menos hice algo, jajaja! Que tengan un buen fin de semana :)
I really enjoyed celebrating iNSD, although i didnt play in too many challenges or activities, at least I worked on these two sketches and that's a lot at this moment, LOL!  Have an awesome weekend!

Doodlebug Design Trifold Card Tutorial - Dragon Tails

Hello, how are you today? Today I want to share here a simple idea I posted some days ago at Doodlebug Design blog for creating a fun trifold birthday card using gorgeous Dragon Tails collection. 
Hola! Cómo están? Hpy quiero compartir acá una simple idea que publiqué hace algunos días en el blog de Doodlebug Design para crear una entretenida tarjeta de cumpleaños plegable usando la maravillosa colección Dragon Tails.

The procedure for making this car is super simple; first, you'll need a sheet of cardstock (I used Coordinating Cardstock Blue Jean color by DD) and score them every 10 cm, dividing the shee in 3 sections, just like in the pic.
El procedimiento para hacer esta tarjeta es muy sencillo; primero, necesitará una hoja de cardstock (yo usé Coordinating Cardstock color Blue Jean de DD) y lo marcarán cada 10cm, dividiendo la hoja en tres partes, como se ve en la foto.

Next, you'll fold the cardstock through the scored lines and form the base for the card. In order to make them more intweresting you will cut the paper in diagonal just like in the pic, leaving 15 cm. in the short part and 25 cm. in the long one.
A continuacion, doblarán el cardstock por las líneas marcadas y de esta manera formarán la base de la tarjeta. Para que el diseño sea más interesante, cortarán el papel en diagonal, tal como se ve en la foto, dejando 15cm en la parte más corta y 25cm en la parte más larga.

After that the base will look like this. Now it's ready to be decorated!
Finalmente la base se ve así. ahora está lista para ser decorada!

For decorating the base you can glue some patterned paper to it, I used these with tiny pattern so it wont look too busy along with the embellishments, in cases like this is very practical to use the 6x6 inches pad.
Para decorar pegarán papel decorado, yo usé este patron pequeño para que n se vea tan llenod e cosas con los adornos. En casos como estos es muy útil usar los pads de 6x6 porque sus diseños son más pequeños. 

Finally you can add some diecuts from the Odds & Ends package, some shape or dot sprinkles, anything you want to embellish your card.
Finalmente, agregarán algunos diecuts del paquete de Odds&Ends, sprinkles redondos o con forma, o cualquier otro adorno que quieran para adornar la tarjeta.

This is how my card finally came out. As you can see, it was super easy and the result is great. You have plenty of space for writing or even for including some pics! I think this could be a great  option for a group greeting because evryone would have a lot of space for writing a little note...
 Así quedó mi tarjeta finalmente. Como pueden ver, fue muy fácil y el resultado es lindo. Se tiene mucho espacio para escribir e incluso se pueden pegar algunas fotos. Pinso que este este tipo de tarjeta es una excelente opción para un saludo grupal, ya que tiene mucho espacio para que muchas personas puedan escribir una notita al cumpleañero...

Recipe / Materiales Usados
Dragon Tails - 5545 birthday boy assortment matte sprinkles
Dragon Tails - 5599: dragon tails odds & ends
Dragon Tails - 5647 hip hip hooray double-sided cardstock
Dragon Tails - 5690 dragon tails 6x6 paper pad
Dragon Tails - 5552 balloons shape sprinkles

I hope you like this idea and give it a try next time you need a fun card, if you have any question just let me know in the comments, have a fabulous weekend!
Espero que les haya gustado esta idea y se animen a hacerla si necesitan una tarjeta entretenida y diferente. Si tienen alguna pregunta dejenme un comentario, que tenga un estupendo finde!

Home Decor - Jillibean Soup

Hola! Cómo están? Yo contenta en esta semana corta, y hoy les quiero mostrar este proyecto que hice para Jillibean Soup y que está hoy en su blog.
Hello there! What's up? As for me, I'm happy because this week is shorter, so I want to share this project I made for Jillibean Soup and posted just today on their blog. 

Es una pieza decorativa que hice con un de sus placas de madera de la línea Mix the Media. Me encantó trabajar en este formato, fue muy fácil y entretenido hacer este proyecto y el resultado no podía ser más bonito, no creen?
It's a decorative piece I made using on of their wood planks from the Mix the media line. I really ejoyed working with this format, it was easy and fun and the result couln't be any cuter, don't you think?

Acá les muestro el lugar de mi casa donde lo puse, encina de un mueble en mi scraproom, junto con algunas otras cosas bonitas que me alegran el día. 
Here you can see where I put this piece, over a tiny closet in my scraproom, next to some more cute stuff, this corner really make my day happier when I look at it.

Elegí este mensaje porque creo que es importante recordar que cada día es un regalo. En general solemos pensar que tenemos tiempo, que hay toda una vida para hacer las cosas que queremos, para estar con las personas que queremos, para vivir la vida que queremos, y no es así. No hay tiempo, la vida es corta y cada día es único y especial. De un día para otro todo cambia, las personas cambian, los sentimientos cambian y todo se termina, por lo tanto es importante hacer que cada día cuente, este es mi recordatorio para eso. 
I chose this message because I think it's important to have in mind thay everyday in our lives is a gift. In general, we tend to think that we have time, we have the whole life to make the things we like, to be with the people we love, to live the life we want, but it's no true. We don't have time, life is short and everytday is unique and special. Things change out of the blue, people change, feelings change and everything comes to an end, so it's important to make every day count, this is a reminder for myself to live today the life i want to live.

Que tengan un bonito miércoles!
Happy hump day!
