"You are the one" - *Enjoy Scrapping*

Hello my friends & followers!

If anyone is wondering where I've been...all I can say is I'm still here, struggling with everyday life's issues, not anything serious but many little things that gather up and make a pile...and then you explode...I've been a bit down lately...but I am raising up, day by day...slow but steady...I hope...! You know that I try to keep this blog only to scrapbooking stuff and this is why I never speak about personal things or I rarely post any I will not get into details...

SO!!!!!!!! Let's move on to the exciting stuff, shall we?????

A new kit full of happy and bright colors (which helps the mood) is available at Enjoy Scrapping!!! Watch the video that is provided to see how many fun embellishments you can find in it!!!

And here is an example of what you can do with all these stuff!!!
(sorry for the bad photos but it is very cloudy here)...

Use the tag as an embellishment! Paint it with colors that match your papers and tack it in there!! I did the same with that gorgeous big chip key!

Use the wooden hearts as masks and play with your mists! DON'T be afraid!!!
I did a little stamping as well with this lovely heart that's included in the kit!

And I also made a little card using this gorgeous floral paper!

Materials used:
Patterned paper: Basic Grey
Letter stickers: Basic Grey
Element stickers: Basic Grey
Flowers: Prima, Petaloo
Stamp & wooden hearts: Cars

Thank you for stopping by!
Enjoy Scrapping!

January 15th Challenge

Journalling Criteria
HELLO 2012 or GOODBYE 2011? 

 For this challenge, the journalling theme is new beginnings, upcoming adventures but also saying goodbye to yet another year.. Are you glad 2011 is over? Are you looking forward to starting fresh in 2012? What are your goals or resolutions for the year ahead? What are you most looking forward to? Or maybe you can journal about your thoughts for the new year. 

Things that you can journal about: a new job, house, baby or new scrapping adventures or Design Teams. Are you taking time off work? Are you planning a holiday somewhere? Maybe your children are starting school or you are getting a new pet. Or you could tell us why you are glad 2011 is over or why you will miss it. Anything goes really!

Remember that you are allowed to also create a card or altered project based on this sketch and instead of the journalling criteria you need to use a quote.

Door hanger, *Scrap for Help*

Hello everyone!

Today I will share with you something I made for "Scrap for Help"!
It is a Christmas door hanger I made out of corrugated board. Other recycled materials that I've used are the Doily, the music paper and that red material for gift wrapping!

It is really easy to make and anyone can try this! I cut the cardboard at the size I wanted, I made it wet and scratched it so I could see the core. After that I painted it with acrylic dabbers and I put some gold stickles around. If you own a cropadile, make two holes, put the eyelets and it is ready to hang!

You should visit the SFH blog and see the wonderful creations the rest of the DT has made! I am sure you will be inspired! It would make me really happy if you play along!
 Thank you for visiting!
