Mid Month Reveal at Scrap Around the World {August 2014 Challenge 16 by Marilyn Rivera} & Playing at Lindy's Stamp Gang {August 2014 color challenge}



Hello everyone & welcome to challenge 16, hosted by Marilyn Rivera, from the USA!
This is such a amazing mood board by my sweet friend Marilyn Rivera look at all the great pictures you can work with wow I was totally inspired by the gold & teal dresses and that fiveties touch of the middle picture below!

So this is my take on the mood board:
I used some gorgeous papers by Graphic 45 & beautiful lace and flowers by Tresors de Luxe 

A little closer:

I also used some of Lindy's Stamp Gang  sprays because with this layout I want to enter their monthly challenge!
I was inspired by the pink & blue colors in the palette.




 I don't own that much sprays & embossing powders.....that hugh flower with the pearl in the middle I made myself using the Starburst Creme Brulee Cream {in love with that one}
I also used
-  Glitz Spritz Sunset Pink
- Starburst Tiffany Lou Blue
- Starburst Cotton Candy Pink

This is the color palette

Two Cards for Kraft Bags week at ***BoBunny***

Hi everyone, 
Today I would like to share with you two cards I've created for the magnificent BoBunny I still feel very blessed to be on this wonderful team with so many lovely products.
My cards:

August You Make Me Smile 

My favorite month is the month August it's almost always good weather which I really love!
Here I used the whole Kraft Gift Bag plain as the base off my card it's a card of 7,6 inch by 5,7 inch so that's kind off hugh for a card. I love layering my cards so here I have about nine layers including the doily.
I can't get enough off  "The Avenues" collection so for this card it's all The Avenues & Kraft Gift Bag. On my last vacation trip about 2 weeks ago I went to a local scrapbook store and found some off that papers that where sold out at where I live.....so I was very pleased and bought them all *grin*
BoBunny Supplies:
Patterned Paper: Dot, Clocks, Treasures/The Avenues
Doilies: Small Doilies
Brads: The Avenues
Jewels: The Avenues
Blossoms: Natural Earth Zinnia, Blush Dahlia
Misc Me Cardstock Sticker: The Avenues
Kraft Gift Bag: Music Notes, Plain
Kraft Wood: Shapes Elegant

Thank You 
For my second card I thought why not make my own flowers out off Kraft Gift Bags. I just separated the bags and cut out five circles cute the edges with a scissor sprayed them with water & shine glimmer mist to give it a sparkle! Then I wrinkled them and layered them on top of each other. I had so much fun!
This card is also huge, don't you just love the flowers BoBunny offers I never seem to have enough off them. For this card I used the pretty blues in the "Somewhere In Time" collection.
BoBunny Supplies:
Patterned Paper: Evening Mist, Antiquity, Chrononaut/Somewhere In Time
6 x 6 Paper Pad: Somewhere In Time
Double Dot Paper: Licorice
Brads: Somewhere In Time

Altered Clock for ***Tresors de Luxe***

Happy Thursday everyone,

Today I would like to share my OTP project I created for "Tresors de Luxe" a clock I bought a while back. I love the projects the other fellow DT members are making & showing off on the blog {did you see it already?} 
This clock is standing on my desk so I have to look at it most off the day, what better way to cover it with all Tresors de Luxe products right?
For the base off my clock I used some gorgeous Maja Designs papers I love how all off their collection go so well together. I kept the clock simple as I may say so because I like it already :-))

Pretty Time 
The Front
I'm totally in love with all the flowers Tresors de Luxe sells that I can't get enough off them.
The Back
The gorgeous doily can be removed & is attached with magnetic discs so I can replace the battery when is needed. I stamped on the backside with some written stamps....which I personally love!
Some close ups from the beautiful products I got to work with.




Tresors de Luxe products used:
                                  FL-046                               
 { I used the green colored one} 

Thank you so much for stopping by today always love it when you visit.....hope you will have a wonderful Thursday!

For this layout I used the gorgeous "Coffee in the Arbour" collection by Maja Designs this collection goes so well the dresses of my nieces {well I think so}


I really love that embossing folder and those girl dies I knew exactly what I was going to do with them.
I'm totally in to soft yellow at the moment instead of pink :-)))


Words dies are always fun to use in sentences with my....
I did some embossing on the Imaginarium Design fence piece with two different kinds off embossing powder
{Stampendous aged taupe & Shabby White}
