FSJ • Happy Shelby Scrapbook Page

I love when I can create scrapbook pages, specially if I can pair some fabulous products with a great sketch.  I made this page using a picture of my Shelby. The day I took the picture, we were at the backyard of our house with some friends, and she got everybody’s attention. She played fetch, ran a lot, and ended up exhausted… but happy.

Anyway, I know I have said it before, but I am going to say it again. If you want to save some time while creating your scrapbook pages, it is ok to base your creation on a sketch designed by somebody else like I did. The sketch of the layout that I used is by the talented Laura Whitaker, and you can find it >>>HERE<<<.

It is a lot of fun to create each of the elements of this page and put them together. For this page I used the Mystic Romance Prints along with some dies, stamps and embellishments.110517web)HappyShelby2

I used the Blooming Details die set to create the flowers and leaves. I also used the Border Basics die set along with the Everyday Tags. I only use part of the tag showing above and below the picture.110517web)HappyShelby4

I used the Marquee Type bundle (stamps and die) to make the title. Additionally, I used  the HB stamp. I  white embossed the word “happy” and I cut it into little squares.  The page was complemented with some Pink World sequins, Sparkle Silk, Journey Tape and some crystals.

FSJ • Thanks Card + Video

Hello friends. Autumn is my favorite season of the year.  I like the colors of the surroundings,  and I even  like the type of weather, not so warm, not so cold, just perfect.  Anyways, today I am back to share a Fall themed card featuring lots of Fun Stamper Journey products along with a fun technique.

102817web_thanks1

I am not going to describe how I created this card on this post, since I made a short video showing all the steps from start to finish,  as well as the fun stamping technique that I used. Check it out:

Here is another close up of my card, where you can see details of the technique 😀
102817web_thanks2

I liked how this card turned out a lot. The leaves look really pretty in real life, and it is so easy to create!

102817web_thanks3

I hope you feel inspired to use this technique on future projects, and please don’t forget to share what you have created!

FSJ • Have Courage Card

Hello friends, just a quick post to share another card that I made for the Fun Stampers Journey Be Brave Drive.   The goal of this drive is to collect cards that will be sent to patients and caregivers in need through a  Breast Cancer non-profit organization. I just found out that thanks to the help of many crafters around the country, Fun Stampers Journey reached their goal of getting over 500 cards, yay! I am so happy for that!

Anyway,  I recently sent this card that features a set called called Be  Brave and I combined it with a sentiment from another set named Take Action .

102317web_havecourage1

The design of this card is quite simple: a large panel and some fun layers. I created a stamped panel and then I adhered it over a base card. After that,  I made a few more elements that worked as the layers and focal point: a vellum pierced circle, the stamped ribbon image, and a sentiment that I enhanced with Journey Glaze (one of my favorite products).

102317web_havecourage2

Finally, I embellished my card with some decorative tape, staples, twine and silk. Easy, pretty and for a good cause.  I hope this card  brightens up  somebody’s day.

FSJ • Thank You Card

One of the Fun Stampers Journey Products that I can never get tired of using are the Liquid Colors. Liquid Colors are dye based and they are available in twelve different colors.

101317web_thankyoucard1

The colors are vibrant and can be used to create backgrounds, or to color images as well. For this card I payed with some of the colors,  and I used a stencil too.  I like to create several backgrounds at the time, since I know I can use them later for other projects.

101317web_thankyoucard2

The stamp set that I used is called Dahlia Burst  with its matching dies.  In the beginning I thought of leaving the flowers plain white, but in the end I added a hint of color using my Journey Color Burst color pencils to kind of integrate them more into the background.

101317web_thankyoucard3

I matted the background panel with white cardstock and stitches along the edge. I adhered the stitched panel to a base card. I layered the flowers and leaves, and adhered them with Journey squares and dots. I complemented the cluster with a white-embossed sentiment, sparkle cuts, silk and  a few sequins.  This card was so much fun to make!

FSJ • Planner Pages • Make Your Mark Promotion

Hello friends! The Fun Stampers Journey Make your Mark promotion just started last week and this is a great chance to get some of this fabulous products that were created specially for your planner.

100917web_plannersepA

Creating your planner pages can be a lot of fun. You can use as much product as you wish: simple or elaborated, it doesn’t really matter. The idea is that you make them fun! Plan ahead of time, make some notes here and there, and work around the events and  activities that you have already planned.

100917web_plannersepC

For my pages I knew we were going to have  my son’s birthday, so I prepared some of the elements of the pages ahead of time, and stamped and used the Journey tape here and there, and I also planned my days a little bit.

100917web_plannersepB

Of course I knew we were going to have some pictures that day, so I left a space for it. The planner products are very versatile and combining them with some of the regular stamps can be such a great opportunity to take advantage of the products that you already have.

Make Your Mark Social Share (3)

Anyway, please be sure to stop by the FSJ store and see more details about this promotion, make your wish list and contact your Journey coach.

World Cardmaking Day • Be Brave Challenge

Hello friends! Happy World Cardmaking Day!
Today I am sharing a card that I created to celebrate and it is also combined with one of the fun challenges that Fun Stampers Journey have put together specially for us. The purpose of today’s challenges is to create cards for the Be Brave Card Drive.    The goal of this drive is to collect cards that will be sent to patients and caregivers in need through a  Breast Cancer non-profit organization.

22221935_10156117075093455_4255466030998061827_n.jpg

I created a card for Challenge #2: Create a card for a caregiver.  I made a Thank You card using  a pretty stamp set called: Be  Brave. I used the ribbon to create a simple background and the little dove as an accent image.

100717web_thankyou

The Thank You sentiment is from another versatile set called: Must Have Sentiments.  I also  used a pierced rectangle, Journey tape, sequins and heart shaped paper clip  as embellishments.

100717web_thankyou2

So I hope you feel inspired to create some cards, participate in one or more of the challenges, send your cards to the Journey Station and be part of a good cause!

FSJ • All Hallows’ Eve Card

Hello friends, I am back today to share a card that I created using some Fun Stampers Journey products.  I want to point out that this time I  used a simple and fun  SplitcoastStamper sketch (SCS664) to create my card.

092917web_hallows2

The stamp set that I used is called Hallows’Eve and it is  included in the Journey Holiday Mini. I want to mention that this set is a Host Exclusive product. To learn more about how to host a Make-It Party, please click >HERE<  This set in particular is a large set with thirty one stamps. All the images included are very cute and they are perfect to use for Halloween themed projects.

I also used a background stamp called Widow’s Web, and I simply stamped it with Tangerine Fusion ink over Citrus Cooler cardstock. The little figures were stamped with  Black Licorice ink  onto Whip Cream cardstock.  I added some details with Journey Color Splash watercolor pencils and then cut trimmed the tiny images with scissors.

092917web_hallows1

To create an ombré effect for the the little spooky house image, I inked the stamp with three different tones of purple (Pretty Amethyst, Lavender Fusion and Grape Fusion). Then,  I stamped the sentiment over a pierced oval matted with a larger vellum oval.   I layered all the elements of the card and I added a few other things to complement the cute scene: Journey tape, sequins and Sparkle silk.

By the way, a new fun promotion has started at Fun Stampers Journey, check it out:
