Halloween Scrapbook Layouts

Hi, everyone! 

Today, I am sharing the last two layouts that i created inspired in the Halloween holiday. Both layouts show my kids dressing their last year costumes: Wolverine and King Tut.

Created with Echo Park Apothecary Emporium. I used the most sketch 10.20 from Sketchy Thursdays challenge blog.

The second layout show my kids during a Halloween event at Punto Verde park. I used a Page Maps sketch and supplies from Fancy Pants: Oct 31 collection.

Wishing everyone a great week!

Recycle your Cardboard

This past summer I went to Spain with my family. We had a great time together and the kids showed interest for everything related to castles, small streets, etc. 

I made this layout with Imaginisce Bon Voyage collection which is available at The Paper Trail store. The navy and burgundy colors were the perfect fit for the cardboard challenge taking place at Trail Makers challenge blog. 

The cardboard was inked with gold ink. It adds a touch of dimension and rustic feel to my page. I love the die cuts from this collection, the stamps with the travel images, and the sentiments. There was no need to use alphabet stickers for my title.

I was inspired in the sketch from the monthly challenge at Imaginisce's blog. It is due on October 25. 

If you notice, I combined the Bon Voyage goodies with several vintage items from Purple Pumpkin (felt flower, brown vinyl cogs, white/brown twine, vinyl heart, spotted brown button). As you see, they blend very well together.

Some close-up photos below:

Studio Calico Memoir * 3 Scrappy Boys Add-On

First of all, I am super excited to share that I am back on the 3 Scrappy Boys DT for another term!!! I love the kits and I loved being part of the community this year. Congrats and welcome to the new designers. Checkout the announcement, here.

Second, today I created two additional pages with the fabulous Add-On kit from 3 Scrappy Boys. This kit features the Memoir collection from Studio Calico.

For my first layout, I used some old photos from our family trip to San Francisco, California. Specifically, the photos show our stop previous crossing the Golden Gate. I still remember, that kids were super active that day. Well the evidence can be shown here!!! LOL!

Reflecting right now, they were so little! Right now, they do not remember.
Just everything you see is from the Add-On kit except for the kraft cardstock and the mist used (Studio Calico - Custard (sun, flowers) and Studio Calico - white(clouds)). The camera is one of the images included in the Maya Road clear stamp set.

For the second layout, I wanted to showcase the ribbon included in the kit. I attached it with liquid glue to a circle shaped chipboard frame from my stash. This photo is more recent. It is  from this last summer. 

We were at Avila, which is a very antique city, which I feel it justifies the use of the vintage ribbon over the photo. Moreover, love the contrast provided of the white chipboard letters against the kraft cardstock. Love the color combination of wine / blue / turquoise, too.
This layout is pretty simple, but I preferred that way. BTW this was my 5th layout from the kit. The brown/white twine is from WRMK that can be found in the store. The scripted patterned paper belongs to Studio Calico Memoir 6"X6" pad.

October kits are now for sale!  Heather decided to donate 10% of all sales in October to either the Susan G. Komen Foundation or The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. These donations will be made in honor of breast cancer awareness month and Heather's father, who passed away from multiple myeloma. 

There are kit packs as well that will offer you a special discount in addition to your donation. A great way to contribute and get something in return!

Wishing you a great week! and thanks so much for your comments! They make me very happy every time I receive a visit or receive comments! and your patience since finally I am getting on the routine as a full-time working mom!



C is for....

This month at Scrapbookers-Anonymous is the letter C...
where C stands for Crate, Cosmo Cricket, Coredinations, Copics, Cards, Cardboard...
I used some patterned papers from Cosmo Cricket Odds and Ends collection and Coredinations cardstock from the Basic grey collection. I was inspired in a sketch from this month at Purple Pumpkin, ie the embellishments (the red flower, the red doily, the black buttons are from Purple Pumpkin). 

I Iove this photo from my beautiful sister with my son. They were posing at church after Diego's baptism ceremony. I really have sweet memories of that date.

So what "C" things do you have in your stash? Dig deep and see what you have in your stash. Maybe you have a "C" we didn't think of. If you submit your project before 9pm EST on October 31st, you'll be entered into the drawing for the monthly prize.. Some cute Echo Park paper... .

Come on and play along and show us what you've got!!!


Two More Layouts with Studio Calico Memoir

Today, I am sharing two more scrapbook layouts with the kit I got to play from 3 Scrappy Boys. This is the Add-On kit which is filled with beautiful supplies from Studio Calico Memoir.

First Horse Ride - Diego is having a horse ride at Villa Campestre. However he did not enjoy the experience. Loved how turned out the Maya Road chipboard. I applied white acrylic paint and while wet, I misted with Studio Calico "Estate Green".

en Plaza de Colon - This is the first square when you get to enter "Old San Juan". Actually, this was a family day trip for the first week of October last year. As you can see by my son expression and my glasses, we were not comfortable with the sun's exposure.  Love, love the Studio Calico chipboard buttons. Must of the patterned paper grid was created with the 6" X 6" papers included in the kit.
I was inspired in a sketch from Sketchy Thursdays. Tip: Do not throw away cardboard packaging. The cream mat belongs to the cardboard from Prima alphabet stickers. Love the blue / cream combination.
Do not miss out! There is only one kit left!

On another note, TODAY is the last date for applying to the DT at 3 Scrappy Boys. The DT applications are due October 6 by midnight!

This is an excerpt from Heather's newsletter published yesterday:

Just a quick reminder that DT applications are due tomorrow by midnight! I just wanted to update you in case you are still on the fence about applying. We have gotten quite a few applications so far, overwhelmingly international applicants. We would love to see some more US applicants, as there are more US spots available than international spots. Please send your application to heather@3scrappyboys.com

All the info can be found here! Do not miss this amazing opportunity! I loved my term and I know you will too!

Have a nice day!

Let's Fly Away

This was my first time scrapping with Imaginisce supplies, and it will not be my last. Loved to scrap with this company's papers and die cuts. 

Everything you see in this layout is from The Paper Trail store. There, you can find this fabulous travel collection from Imaginisce "Bon Voyage". By the way, I feel so happy for Karen that last month opened her brick and mortar store located at Fayetteville, North Carolina. I wish great success!

For this layout, I was inspired in sketch #174 from Creative Scrappers.

We are in front of "Avila" cathedral at Spain. One of my goals for my kids is to show them the world. We want them to have a global mindset.

Do not forget to visit Trail Makers challenge blog. Right now, there is a challenge running over there.

Scrapbooker's Anonymous October Challenge - Die Cuts

On to this month's challenge at Scrapbooker's Anonymous... it's all about the DIE CUTS. This time you need to dig that die cutter now like you Big Shot, Cricut, Cuttle Bug or Silhouette.

If you do not have a machine, you can use pre-made die cuts. Surely, you have several of them piling up in your stash.

Here is my sample layout...
I used both type of die cuts at my layout. One of my best dies investments is the Stampin' Up! Top Note Bigz Die. I think I use it on a monthly basis. 

I used pre-made die cuts too, like the scalloped Jillibean Soup journaling die cuts. They were covered with patterned paper circles cut with the Bigz Die Circle #2. 

Love the colors of this collection from Jillibean Soup Apple Cheddar. I combined this collection with a sketch from Julie Bonner. 

Here is my little boy posing for me at the living room before going to a birthday party. I love when he dresses with button shirts. It was a summer day, but who matters?

Do not forget about all the awesome mini BIRTHDAY challenges my friends from Scrapbookers Anonymous. You have until midnight October 7th to link those up. The links are on the left side bar from Scrapbookers Anonymous blog.


And what you can possibly win for playing along at the DIE CUTS challenge? Well how about a Sample Pack of Echo Park - Country Drive, Happy Days, Victoria Garden, and The Apothecary Emporium.

And to be eligible for the monthly prize, you must have your project linked up by 9 AM EST on October 31st.

Have a great day!
