What I have been doing....

I have been working on these, actually 15 of these, then baking cookies and buying chocolates to put in them ...they had to be done by tomorrow night. They are very easy to make, just the cutting takes a little time. I bought this template from Lauren Meader, she is the designer, a really great
one! Here is a link to where you can get them.


I used TAC white cs, which I love because it is pretty thick for this kind of use. I cut the template for the bootie, put it through my cuttlebug with the snowflakes folder to give it some texture. Used some paper I had in my stash, same with the ribbon (I have a huge collection,...need to use it, but keep buying more....)

Thanks for visiting!

He estado trabajando en estas botitas, realmente han sido 15 de ellas,
ademas de cocinar
galletitas, y comprando chocolates para hacer
los regalitos....todas tenian que estar
terminadas para mañana
por la noche. Son bien sencillas de hacer, solo el cortarlas toma

un poco de tiempo. Compre este 'patron' de Lauren Meader,
ella es la diseñadora,
muy talentosa! Arriba les icluyo un link
en donde se pueden conseguir el patron.

Use cs de TAC en blanco, que me encanta para este projecto
pues tiene la densidad del papel es perfecta
para este uso.
Corte el patron de la bota, lo pase por el cuttlebug con el folder de
snowflakes para darle textura. Use papel que tenia en mi coleccion,
lo mismo con la cinta.
Tengo una coleccion bien grande de cinta y
de papel, (los cuales necesito usar,
pero sigo comprando....)

Gracias por la visita,



for a friend

This card I made for a friend, I used TAC spanish sentiments set, and just dreamy. Used cb snow folder, and spellbinders circles. I finished this card in a few minutes, not hard to make at all, I think that although it is very simple it is beautiful! Enjoy.

Hice esta tarjeta para una amiga, use los sets de TAC spanish sentiments, y just dreamy. Use cb folder snow y los circulos para cortar de spellbinders. Termine esta tarjeta en unos minutos, a pesar de que no fue dificil hacerla. Me parece que a pesar de que es sencilla es preciosa. Que la disfruten.

daughters bday

My older daughter turned 23 years this past week! Wow!!! I feel old!!! She moved out a few years back, I miss her so, she is such a wonderful and beautiful young woman.... Ok enough mushy stuff....

I made her this card, mailed it to her for her bday. I used this set which is the 1st one I bought from TAC over a year ago....(one of my favorites!) it is called Precious Girl, it is retired... Colored it with watercolor pencils, used the happy bd cuttlebug folder for the backround paper, which I bought at a local store sometime back. I cut the circles with nestabilities, ribbon is from my stash, everything is mounted on TAC cs.

Hope you like it!

Mi hija mayor cumplio 23 esta semana! Wow!!! Me siento vieja!!! Ella se mudo de la casa hace un tiempo, le extrano mucho, es una persona maravillosa y bella....Ok suficiente de esto....

Le hice esta tarjeta, para su cumpleanos y se la envie por correo. Use el set que fue el primero que compre de TAC hace un tiempo atras...(uno de mis favoritos! se llama Precious Girsl, y esta retirado...Lo coloree con lapices, use el folder de cuttlebug de happy birthday, para el papel de la base use un papel que compre en una tienda local hace un tiempo atras. Corte los circulos con nestabilities, la cinta es de mi coleccion, todo esta montado en cs de TAC.

Espero te guste!!



sorry for being MIA

I had to take a break from my duties, I have been trying to do too much!!! Hopefully with the Holidays so close I won't get burned out!

Here is a Christmas card I made, I have been trying to make them all, but, some of them will just be a family picture, in a store bought picture card! (yeah I am embarrassed!!!)

On this one, I used TAC Snowmen Nativity set, colored with water colors and markers, used stickles for the 'snow'. The piece of scored cs is really water color, I used watercolor pencils, and a brush with water to get that watercolor look. The sentiment comes from a set I have from previous years! Ribbon is from my collection!


Tenia que cojerme un descanso de mis responsabilidades, he estado tratando de hacer demasiado a la vez!!! Espero que con los dias festivos que vienen ya pronto no me 'queme'!

Esta es una tarjeta de Navidad que hice, he tratado de hacer todas las que necesito, pero, algunas van a ser una foto de la familia en una tarjeta que compre para poner fotos!

Para esta, use el set de TAC Snowmen Nativity, coloree con lapices de colorear, y marcadores, use stickles para la 'nieve'. La pieza de cs que esta detras es realmente papel de colorear (watercolor paper) y use lapices y una brocha con agua, para tener ese efecto. El sentimiento viene de un set que compre años atras! La cinta es de mi coleccion!

Que la disfruten!



taking a break

I will be out for a few days, won't be posting....taking a well deserved :) cruise that there are no hurricanes in the horizon, although I would not mind a detour to Puerto Rico....

Will be back at the end of next week, then going with my hubby on a business trip he has!!! So I will try and rest, and come back with new ideas....and of course pictures to scrapbook.

See you all soon,


No voy a estar por aqui por unos dias, no voy a poder escribir en mi blog, vamos en unas bien merecidas vacaciones en un crucero....ahora que no hay huracanes en el horizonte, aunque no me molestaria un desvio a Puerto Rico....

Estare de vuelta a final de la semana que viene, luego voy a acompañar a mi esposo en un viaje de negocio que el tiene!!! Asi que tratare de descansar y regresar con nuevas ideas...y claro fotos para escrapear.

Nos vemos pronto,



I used paper from the Bella Flor TAC collection, Belle Rose Patter Ink, Sentiment is from TAC as well called Makes You Happy.

I think it turned out great!!!

Sorry I have been MIA

Sorry I have been MIA, I have been swamped with tons of sewing for
my daughters' ballet studio...they needed some skirts, I was asked to do them....I had like 16 skirts to cut, and put ribbons on....anyways...back to stamping...

I got this GWP from TAC...I love it because it is a very versatile one, you can use it for anything (I think!) Used pallette inks, Sands of Time collection. I used Nestabilities for the rectangles.

I got my inspiration from my friend Diana, here is a link to her blog...she is a great inspiration to me, and a lot more people....!!! Go check her out!
   Dianas' blog

Hope you like my card, thanks for visiting....

love this set!!!

I love this set, I just got it today, could not wait to use it...OMG it is sooooo cool!!! I decided to make a 'new' card with it, this is what I came up with. The set is from TAC called Just Dreamy, it is no longer available, there is another one just the same except it is bigger in our Fall/Winter 2008 catalog called Just Dream.

The technique is done with a brayer on a glossy card stock, I wanted to experiment using a photo paper (I think it turned out pretty cool....)

Stamped with Versamark before doing the brayer with a TAC set called Small Sentiments, then brayered it with Auttumn Leaves Kaleidacolor pad.

Used a flower from my stash, mounted the angel and sentiment on dimensionals, here is the result!!!



Me encanta este set, lo acabo de recibir hoy, no podia esperar a usarlo....Decidi hacer una tarjeta 'nueva' con el, y esto fue lo que se me ocurrio!!!

El set es de TAC se llama Just Dreamy, ya no esta disponible, hay otro en el catalogo Fall/Winter 2008, que es igual, excepto que es mas grande este se llama Just Dream.

La tecnica es hecha con un brayer en un CS glossy (con brillo), queria experimentar usando papel de foto, (creo que se ve muy bien....)

Use Versamark antes de usar el brayer con un set de TAC Small Sentiments, entonces use el brayer con un Kaleidacolor pad Auttumn Leaves.

La flor es de mi coleccion, monte el angel y el sentimiento con dimensionales, aqui esta el resultado!!!

Que lo disfruten!

I made these

This is what I have been up to, I had these cushions I was going to give away, I had some muslin, and thought I would try and see how they look.

I used palette inks from TAC in raw sienna, belle rose, lanscape, noir black, and some staz on in blue and red. I used the following sets from TAC His Angels, Small Sentimentsl, andFlowers and Holly.

I think I am going to go thru some others and see how good they look when I am done...I might be able to recycle them!



Esto es lo que he estado haciendo, tenia estos cojines que iba a regalar, tenia una tela de forro, y pense que deberia de tratar y ver como se verian antes de salir de ellos.

Use la tinta de Palette inks de TAC en raw sienna, belle rose, lanscape, noir black, y alguna de Stazon en azul y rojo. Use los siguentes sets de TAC, His Angels, Small Sentiments, y Flowers and Holly.

Creo que voy a tratar de ver si 'arreglo' otros y ver si quedan bien....quizas pueda reciclarlos!!!

Que los disfruten,



This card I love!!!

I used TAC Sands of Time paper, and a set I got from TAC (don't know the name...sorry) for the flowers. The sentiment is from a TAC set called It's the Little Things. I did the watercolor technique on the flowers, and the ribbon is from my never ending stash!



Me encanta esta tarjeta!!!

I had this paper for a while and so decided to create something with it...This set I got from TAC (don't know what it is called) when I signed up with them, I don't like to have stamp sets and not use them, so I have to make something!!!

I used the paper crimper and Belle Rose ink I think it turned out pretty cool!

Use el crimper de papel, y la tinta es Bella Rose, creo que se ve muy linda!!

Stamp Set: TAC Fun little fish
Paper: TAC Rustic Shick

This little bag my daughter made for a friends bday....Sometimes we have arguments because I don't like what she makes, and I have to remind myself that it is ok....all 'artists' do different things...and I have to respect that!!! When she was finally done, I had to agree she did pretty good....:)
Have a great day!


Esta bolsita la hizo my hija para el cumpleaños de una amiga....A veces discutimos pues no me gusta lo que hace, y tengo que recordarme que esta bien,.....todos los 'artistas' hacemos las cosas distintas....y tengo que respetar eso!!!! Cuando finalmente habia terminado, tuve que aceptar que le quedo bastante bien :)

Que pasen un bonito dia!


Cute little bag

I have been sewing again (another one of my passions...) but I discovered I can do both, I can stamp on fabric and sew!!! I had seen the instructions for this a while back and printed them, for one of those days projects!!! Today was the day....

I used TAC stamp Flowers and Holly, Pallete inks Raw Sienna, Belle Rose, Landscape, I used Stazon in Blue and Red as well. The ribbon I had in my huge stash of ribbons...(using them little by little!!!)

The instructions are here:

These are very easy to follow! I used my TAC stamps
and got a pretty good result!

I kinda love that is a very cute one to use in many ways!!! Hope you like it!!!!

Hice esta pequeña 'cartera' para mi hija, un dia que no la estabamos pasando muy bien. Use CS Punchouts Handbags & Tags TAC, papel Rustic Chic TAC, una letra de chipboard, primas y flores de Maya Road, los sentimientos los hice el la computadora. Le encanto.

This is one of the double pages I made, printed these sentiments in the computer as well, it ended up to be like a little 'book' that looks like a bag on the outside.

Estas son unas de las paginas dobles que hice, los sentimientosson hechos en la computadora tambien, es como un librito, que parece un 'bolso' por fuera.

These are the last pages of the little book. The flowers are from my 'stash' of flowers I have at home.

These are part of the goodie bag goodies for my DD birthday party. We got these coasters, and ribbon at Target's $1.00. Cut some circles to make the 'pages' inside and added chipboard initials to them, which I had inked (according to my daughters specifications) she then used the signo gel pen and decorated them. I think they are lovely!

Ballet Teachers Gifts

This is the reason why I have been missing a couple of days, I have been busy making some ballet teachers gifts for my daughters ballet teachers, I made six of them in total, so I was pretty busy.

I made some 'homemade bath salts' from a 'recipe' I had found earlier, had enough left for me to use some, so one of these days I will be soaking!!! After they were doneI put them in clear cellophane bags I had bought at Michaels.

I bought some tea tins from Papertrey Inc, for these gifts, the paper is from their Everyday Blessings Collection, I used it to cover the tins, used some ribbon from my stash to tie it all together. The tag in the tin is stamped with Boxes, Bags, and Tags from PTI as well.

Little candle was made with a Michaels votive candle holder, used the sticky strip and applied some beads on it, tied with a white ribbon, from my stash as well. Shredded some tissue paper, put some in a clear cellophane bag, tied it with gold thread.

Card made with leftover paper from PTI, mounted in a light blue cs, and darker blue one for the sentiments. Stamp Set from I am so Glad by Clearly Wodsworth.

It is all bagged in a white paper bag I had bought some time ago, which I stamped with the same PTI set, Boxes, Bags & Tags.



Esta es la razon por la cual no he estado aqui por varios dias, he estado ocupada haciendo regalos para las maestras de baile de mi hija, hice seis de ellos en total, estaba bien ocupada.

Hice sales de baño en la casa, la receta era una que habia encontrado anteriormente, me quedo suficiente para mi uso personal, asi que uno de estos dias las uso, a ver que tal son. Depues que las hice las puse en una bolsita de celofan que habia comprado en Michaels y la amarre con una cinta de mi coleccion.

Habia comprado unas cajitas de Papertrey Inc, para estos regalos, el papel que use para decorarlas es de la collecion de Everyday Blessings de PTI tambien. Use cinta de mi coleccion para amarrarlo todo junto. El tag en la cajita esta estampado con un set de PTI que se llama Boxes, Bags and Tags.

La pequeña velita es un candle holder que compre en Michaels, use el sticky strip para pegarle los beads, la amarre con una cinta blanca de mi coleccion. Triture papel de tissue que tenia, puse la velita con papel triturado en una bolsita de celofan, amarrada con un hilo color oro.

La tarjeta esta hecha con el papel que me sobro de PTI, montada en un cs azul claro, y azul oscuro para los sentimientos. La cinta tambien de mi coleccion. El set que use es I am so Glad de Clearly Wordsworth.

Todo esta puesto en una bolsa de papel blanca que tenia de hacia un tiempo, la cual estampe con el set de PTI Boxes, Bags, & Tags.

Que lo disfruten,

I love this set a lot, I know it is retired, but before it did I got it because it reminds me of my dd. I made this card, the other night when I was so afraid that anything could happen to her...

Sometimes when I feel like that, I get my creativity back...CRAZY, I know!!! But I think it turned out beautiful! Enjoy.

Me encanta este set, se que esta retirado, pero antes de que se retirara, lo compre, me recuerda a mi dd. Hice esta tarjeta, las otras noches cuando vivi tanto miedo, pensando que algo le podia pasar a ella.

Algunas veces cuando me siento asi, me llega la creatividad...DE LOCOS, yo se!!! Pero me parece que es preciosa! Que la disfruten.

Need to keep busy

I need to keep my brain busy....I am actually feeling sick again with another cold! Talk about stress taking a toll...

This card although very simple is very cute...I used two of the new stamps I got from TAC, His Angels and Nurture Your Soul. I did the watercolor technique, which I really like to do because I love the results. I used the Swiss Dot Cuttlebug folder, also a very cool paper I had bought a while back it is like metal, but it is sticky on one side, so you don't need to add any adhesive to it.



Necesito mantener mi cabeza ocupada....Estoy sintiendome enferma otra vez con otro resfriado! El estress esta haciendo de las suyas...

Esta tarjeta es bien sencilla y bien linda...Use dos de mis stamps nuevos que recibi de TAC, His Angels, y Nurture Your Soul. Hice la tecnica de watercolor, la cual me gusta usar, me encantan los resultados. Use el folder Swiss Dot de Cuttlebug, tambien un papel que compre hace un tiempo atras, es metal, pero con adhesivo en un lado, asi que no tienes que añadir ningun tipo de adhesivo para pegarlo a la tarjeta.

Que lo disfruten,



Pretty Flower

I loved this stamp since I first saw it, it is a TAC stamp called Gerbera Daisy. I decided to play with it a little bit, and I think it turned out pretty cool....I colored it with my new Impress markers from TAC as well, did the watercolor technique and voila! I used some of my old, old glitter on the center to give it some sparkle...All the paper used is from my old paper stash, the lighter green I used the Swiss Dot Cuttlebug folder, I think it gives it a very delicate look. That's all there is to it. Thanks for looking!


Me encanto este stamp desde la primera vez que lo vi, es un TAC stamp llamado Gerbera Daisy. Decidi jugar un rato y me parece que se ve bien bonito. Lo coloree con mis nuevos markers Impress de TAC tambien, hice la tecnica de watercolor y voila! Use de mis papeles viejos, y alguna escarcha que tenia de hace mucho, mucho tiempo. En el papel verde claro use el folder de Cuttlebug llamado Swiss Dot, me parece que le da un look un poco delicado. Eso es todo para lograr esta tarjeta. Gracias por la visita!



Happy Mothers Day

I got this from a friend on an email...I think it it beautiful, so here it is for all those creative and non creative mothers out there!

Happy Mothers Day!



If you send this to just one person, it should make

it all the way around the world by Mother's Day.

This is for the mothers who have sat up

all night with sick toddlers in their arms,

wiping up barf laced with Oscar Mayer

wieners and cherry Kool-Aid saying,

"It's okay honey, Mommy's here."

Who have sat in rocking chairs for hours on end

soothing crying babies who can't be comforted.

This is for all the mothers who show up at

work with spit-up in their hair and milk stains

on their blouses and diapers in their purses.

For all the mothers who run carpools and

make cookies and sew Halloween costumes.

And all the mothers who DON'T.

This is for the mothers who gave birth to

babies they'll never see. And the mothers

who took those babies and gave them homes.

This is for the mothers whose price less art

collections are hanging on their refrigerator doors.

And for all the mothers who froze their buns

on metal bleachers at football or soccer games

instead of watching from the warmth of their cars.

And that when their kids asked,
"Did you see me, Mom?"

they could say, "Of course, I wouldn't

have missed it for the world," and mean it.

This is for all the mothers who yell at their kids

in the grocery store and swat them in despair

when they stomp their feet and scream for ice cream before dinner.

And for all the mothers who count to ten instead,

but realize how child abuse happens.

This is for all the mothers who sat down with

their children and explained all about making

babies. And for all the (grand) mothers who

wanted to, but just couldn't find the words.

This is for all the mothers who go

hungry, so their children can eat.

For all the mothers who read "Goodnight,

Moon" twice a night for a year. And then

read it again, "Just one more time."

This is for all the mothers who taught

their children to tie their shoelaces before

they started school. And for all the mothers

who opted for Velcro instead.

This is for all the mothers who teach their sons

to cook and their daughters to sink a jump shot.

This is for every mother whose head turns

automatically when a little voice calls "Mom?"

in a crowd, even though they know their

own offspring are at home or even away

at college or have their own families.

This is for all the mothers who sent their kids

to school with stomach aches, assuring them

they'd be just FINE once they got there, only

to get calls from the school nurse an hour later

asking them to please pick them up. "Right away!"

This is for mothers whose children have gone

astray, who can't find the words to reach them.

For all the mothers who bite their lips until they

bleed when their 14 year olds dye their hair green.

For all the mothers of the victims of

recent school shootings, and the mothers

of those who did the shooting.

For the mothers of the survivors,

and the mothers who sat in front of their TVs in horror,

hugging their child who just came home from school, safely.

This is for all the mothers who taught their

children to be peaceful, and now pray

they come home safely from a war.

What makes a good mother anyway?

Is it patience? Compassion? Broad hips?
The ability to nurse a baby, cook dinner, and

sew a button on a shirt, all at the same time?

Or is it in her heart?
Is it the ache she feels when she

watches her son or daughter disappear

down the street, walking to school alone

for the very first time?

The jolt that takes her from sleep to

dread, from bed to crib, at 2 A.M. to put

her hand on the back of a sleeping baby?

The panic, years later, that comes again

at 2 A.M. when she just wants to hear

their key in the door and know they

are safe again in her home?

Or the need to flee from wherever she is

and hug her child when she hears news

of a fire, a car accident, a child dying?

The emotions of motherhood are

universal and so our thoughts are for

young mothers stumbling through diaper

changes and sleep deprivation...

And for mature mothers learning to let go.

For working mothers and stay-at-home mothers;

single mothers and married mothers;

mothers with money, mothers without.

This is for you all. For all of us...

Hang in there. In the end we can

only do the best we can. Tell our children

every day that we love them.. And pray

and never stop being a mother...

Please pass along to all the mothers in your life.

"Home is what catches you when

you fall - and we all fall."
