card for a friend - project review PR #01

I'll start my Project Review with this one today.

I have many scrapbook page layouts, cards and other paper crafts I made before having a blog, I simply kept the images in my computer. Now with this new space - created just for my own stuff - I think it's time to share them as a project review(PR), along with the current ones.

This is a card I made for a friend 2 years ago.
The card was part of our gift to her new photo studio grand opening.

Supplies: stamps(HERO ARTS), patterned paper(DCWV), punch(FISKARS and EK), ribbon (OFFRAY), ink pad(CTMH).

about the blog and me blogging here

I'm living a remarkable period of my life.
Right now as SAH(stay-at-home) and then WAH(work-at-home) mommy to a 34-months very busy, curious and CUTE baby boy - yeah..., he still is, and always will be my little one.
I went "seriously" into scrapbooking 3 years ago, then and now spending some part of my free time in the artful process of turning our memories into layouts made with my favorite papers, embellishments, and when it's available, memorabilia to make each page stand out as a precious and personal "life archive".
One of the purposes of this blog is to share my scrapbook layouts, cards and other projects as I make them. Some projects will be available to be purchased and others shared in hope to give you bit(s) of ideas and inspiration.

Thanks for reading this.

Fresh Start - a little piece of the story

I stepped into the blog world in the Spring 2009.
It was like a blast and I knew just a few about blogging.

Started at first with Wordpress, just as another "window" to connect myself with the people who like scrapbook, handmade cards and general paper crafts as I do.
But later on I found I needed more time than I really had to learn & use all the things Wordpress offers to make a nice blog. I wanted something faster and easier.

So, weeks after my first blog without the results I was expecting, I began my "virtual journey" at Blogspot.com.

Then I realized that sometimes, LESS IS MORE, and make things simple is absolutely great.

This is my blog #5 and I'm glad to say this one is just ME.

God Bless.
