FSJ: Brave You

Hello everyone! I am back today to share a card that I created for the Be Brave Card Drive that is currently going on at the Fun Stampers Journey Blog. This drive is supporting the breast cancer awareness month in October.  You can join the drive during this month by creating handmade inspirational cards and send them to the Journey Station. You can find more information about this drive by clicking >>>HERE<<<


This is the card that I created for the drive:


This card is quite easy to make. You will find the complete list of supplies at the end of this post, and you will see that I am using very few products to create it along with one of the stamps that belong to the Make Amazing Collection Happen by Richard Garay.


This are the instructions to replicate my card:

1. Make a card base from Bubble Gum Card stock.
2. Die cut Doily shape from Bubble Gum card stock. Adhere piece over card base a bit off the right side of the card and trim excess with scissors. Flick some Silver and Bubble Gum silk.
3. Stamp sentiment over Whip Cream card stock using Cocoa Powder ink. Die cut with its matching die. Apply Glossy Accents and Sparkles cuts over. Let dry.


4. Make a breast cancer ribbon from Satin Ribbon Bubble Gum. Affix  ribbon with glue dots.
5. Adhere sentiment with foam squares.
6. Embellish card with a bud and pink sequins

RG Make Amazing Happen Mini Album

Mini-albums always come handy when it is necessary to keep up with all the pictures that have started piling up on your desk. Today I am sharing a mini album that I made using products from the Make Amazing Happen Collection by Richard Garay.



Last year, I became a U.S. citizen, and even though I only took a few pictures with my phone that day, I thought it was important to some how preserve this event.  To do so, I created a mini album that consists of cover, back page and four interior pages. All of them have a clearview sheet as a base. The four interior pages have a Note Pocket that holds a picture. Here is a graphic that shows how they  were layered:


Each of the pages have a title, embellishments, short sentiments and details about that day. I thought it was going to be fun to be able to grab the pictures and see the hidden elements. Finally, I bound the album using eyelets and hemp cord.


Click on the photos below to see the pages of my mini album with more detail:

I created a short video that shows the final project, please check it out:

FSJ Planner + RG Make Amazing Happen

Happy Wednesday, everyone! I am back today to share another project using Fun Stampers Journey and Richard Garay products. I recently received the new FSJ Journey Girl Planner, and I have to confess that I was a little nervous about using it. It is so nice and neat that I did not want to mess it up. I have seen how other crafters make a good use of it, and they are so creative when it is time to make shine their planners, so I was a little bit intimidated.

Well, after seen so many fantastic planner ideas on the internet,  I felt inspired and I created a divider for my planner using a couple of stamp sets from the Make Amazing Happen Collection by Richard Garay, and this is how it turned out:


I made a double sided divider using the original divider as a guide (the one that it came with my planner). I am including the easy steps and supplies below so you can see the process.



Journey Girl Binder
Journey Girl 18 months Weekly Calendar
Journey Girl Divider Kit
Black an White Tassel
Whip Cream 8.5″ x 11″ card stock
Make You Stamp set
Amazing Blooms Stamp set
Make Amazing Printed Paper 6″x6″ Pad
Captivating Coral Fusion Ink
Berry Black Fusion Ink
Limeade Splash
Orange Creamcicle
Pineapple Smoothie

Here is how I made my divider…


1. Make a rectangle from Whip Cream card stock using original divider measurements as a guide. Stamp sentiment with Berry Black ink and Flowers with different colors.
2 & 3. Use a mask to block flowers, and then stamp leaves.
4. Stamp a couple more leaves and small flowers randomly.


5. Laminate divider. Trim excess with craft knife. Round Corners.
6. Use original divider as a template to draw where holes need to be punched.
7. Punch holes.
8. Connect holes to edge by trimming a small piece with scissors. Now the divider is ready for your planner.

Additionally, I decorated part of the planner with the Make Amazing Printed papers, and little pieces of decorative tape. I used plain 2×2″ sticky notes and I stamped flower images on them.


I am still in the learning process of the planner world, so I have yet to use paper clips and other items to embellish my planner. As time passes, I’ll keep on utilizing my planner and planning my weeks more creatively!

RG Make Amazing Happen Card

Hello! Today I am featuring products from the Make Amazing Happen Collection by Richard Garay. This collection is very pretty. It includes floral motifs, geometric patterns as well as handwritten sentiments. So, I created a layered card to showcase some of those fun products:


For this card, I started by creating a card base from red card stock. Then, I made a rectangle with patterned paper from the Make Amazing Printed Paper.  I also die cut a red rectangle with the  Abstract Pattern shape and I layered the two pieces on top of the card base.


After that, I die a cut circle from vellum, and I adhered it to the card with glue dots. Then, I stamped and die cut three leaves from the Amazing Blooms stamp/die set.  Next, I arranged the leaves over the card with glue dots.


Then, I stamped and die cut the sentiment from the Make Amazing stamp/die set.  I also die cut the shape using foam to add a little bit of dimension. I adhered the two pieces together and I layered them over  the vellum circle and leaves.


After that, I stamped the flower from the same set, and I trimmed it with scissors. Next,  I adhered the flower with a foam square. Finally, I embellished the card with some clear gemstones.

Here you can see the steps:
