Pretty Little Studio: Port Discovery 2

Happy Sunday Everyone! This weekend is my turn on the Pretty Little Studio Blog to create Pocket Pages using the Treasure Island Collection
I took a lot of photos on this museum so I had to do two layouts. If you missed the first one check out yesterday's post.

 This card is from the Pirates Life Journaling Card Set, the alphas are from Simple Stories, the heart sticker from Freckled Fawn and the Arrow from the ArrowAdventure Die Cut Set.
 These letters are from a Die Cut from Avery Elle. The Geotag Die is from Technique Tuesday.
 The triangles and the arrow paper clip are from Freckled Fawn. I am in love with the Faraway Frames Die Cuts! They come in different sizes and this one is 3x4 and fits perfect in this photo!
Other Treasure Island items I used are: Boardwalk Bookmark SetSea Shore Note StripsAnchors Away Flair ButtonsTiny ABC Lime Stickers, and the Treasure Island 4x6 pack which I love for Pocket Pages! I hope you enjoyed these pages! Make sure you use the Coupon Code: hotJuly to get 15% off your whole order and when your spend $40 you get FREE pack of Metallic Labels!

Pretty Little Studio: Port Discovery!

Happy Saturday! This weekend I'm up in the Pretty Little Studio Blog with some Pocket Pages using the Treasure Island Collection
 I'm sharing with you a spread about one of my favorite summer activities, going to the museum! I have documented a few trips to the museums with the Treasure Island Collection! Since I go to a lot of children's museums, which tend to have primary bright colors this collection is perfect for it!
  I got the Fuse from We Are Memory Keepers and I LOVE IT!! I love making confetti pockets and with this tools is 20 times easier than sewing! On the inside I used wood veneers from Freckled Fawn and glitter from Martha Stewart.
 On this title card, I layered a vellum paper on top of another paper. The letters from the title are from an Avery Elle Die. Speaking of the title card, in the corner I made a little cluster of embellishments using Navigator Note FlagsUnder Sea Paper Ribbons, and Monthly Mermaid Stickers. To finish the card I used an Arrow Adventure Die Cut under the title. 
 The bookmarks are my favorite journaling cards for every collection! I love the shape and how basic and perfect they are for writing your journaling! The yellow one I used for this page is from the Boardwalk Bookmark Set. On that card I used a Geotag Die using the Magic Island Paper and on the center I used the Red Pirate's Journal Vellum which I also used on the title card.

Project Life: Leaving My Heart Once Again!

Happy Monday Everyone! My second album of 2014 is done but the first one still has a few gaps. In these gaps I have my road trip to move to Texas. Today I am going back to east coast and this time we will live in Maryland. But as you can see from the dates in this layout we weren't here a whole year but, that's the military life so we are kinda used to it. At least I have friends waiting for me there! :) Here ends the whining... To the layout!
 In this spread I used pieces from the NEW Fancy Pants Designs Line Office Suite and I Am from Simple Stories.
 I love the InstaPlace App and I also like InstaWeather.
 The card on the left is a 3x4 horizontal and I placed it on a 4x4 piece of paper. The state die cuts are also from Office Suite and I am crazy about those.
 If you follow me on Instagram your probably know that I am obsessed with frames! Specially the ones from the I Am Collection from Simple Stories. On the next card I have the hotel key and a Freckled Fawn star paper clip.

The word and alpha stickers are from Simple Stories. The little geotag wood veneer is from Creative Retreat. 
 This doily die is from Taylored Expressions.
I hope you liked this layout!
Take Care!

Tombow USA and Waffle Flower Blog Hop


This week Tombow USA is teaming up with Waffle Flower Crafts to bring you a blog hop full of inspiration! Make sure you visit Tombow USA and Waffle Flower on Facebook and tell them how much you loved this Blog Hop!

You were in Amanda's Blog but if you need to go back at the beginning go to the Waffle Flower Blog

For this hop I made this Project Life Spread.
Most of the stamping in this layout was done with the Doily Square Stamp Set from Waffle Flower. The "sprinkled" stamping on the Adventure Card was made with the 100% Love Stamp.
To glue the wood veneers I used the Tombow Xtreme Permanent Adhesive and for die cuts I used the Tombow Stamp Runner Dot Adhesive.
I love this title card and I made it with the Doily Circle Die from Waffle Flower and I used the Tombow Mono Aqua Liquid Glue. It dries clear so it's perfect for it!
 To this card, I just added the "Love & Happiness" sentiment from the Doily Square Stamp Set.
 I used this brush stroke from the Doily Square Stamp Set in two cards and I love how it stamps! In case you are not familiar with QR Codes in Project Life, this is great to include videos or links. What I do is upload my family videos to YouTube as "Unlisted". Then I use the URL on a website called www.qrstuff.com and I choose a color for my QR Code. Download it and insert on a Word Document. If you want to put it on a frame like I did here measure the inside of the frame and fix the width on the document. Finally glue using the Tombow Stamp Runner Dot Adhesive.
 The HI! on the photo is from the 100% Love Stamp Set I love stamping on photos and these stamps are great for that! On the quote card I used the brush stroke stamp from the Doily Square Stamp Set in different colors


 I love to use the Doily Square Stamp as a frame!

Art Impressions and Tombow USA Blog Hop

Hello and Welcome to the Tombow USA and Art Impressions Blog Hop!

You probably got here from Diane's Blog but if you stumbled across my blog go the Art Impressions’ Blog to start! 

I made two projects and for the first one I made a tag. I tried to do some found poetry, I'm awful at it, but it's a nice exercise for the brain. 

If you want to see how to make a bokeh background check out THIS POST. If you just want a watercolor background just scribble on the Tombow Blending Palette using the Tombow Dual Brush Pens, spray water (or glimmer mist like I did on this photo) and put your paper on the palette to pick up the color.
To glue the papers and ribbon I used the Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue. To doodle around the tag I used the Tombow Mono Twin Permanent Marker.
This stamp is one of the prizes you can win on this hop! It's the Joy Found Window Stamp! I colored it crazy bright using the Tombow Dual Brush Pens.
For my second card I used 2 stamp sets. For the sassy vintage ladies I used the Bathing Suit Set and for the sentiment I used the You're Vintage Set. To glue the paper I used the Tombow Stamp Runner Dot Adhesive.
Before coloring I did a similar background to the one I did in the tag but I just used Tombow Dual Brush Pens in brown colors to create the illusion of a weathered photo. I colored the ladies with the NEW Tombow Recycled Color Pencils.
Of course we have an amazing prize for this hop!
