RG Celebra’tions Layout

Happy Wednesday!

Currently, one of my favorites collections by Richard Garay is Celebra’tions. I really like this collection because it includes a wide variety of products that you can use in many different type of projects. Today I am sharing a scrap booking page that I created using some of the products from this collection.

Last year, my husband and I took a day off from work, because it was our 26th Anniversary, and we wanted to do something special. So, besides having lunch together,  we went to visit a place called The Bahá’í House of Worship in Wilmette, IL. This place is amazing. I love all the beautiful decorative details of the construction and the peace that you can feel there. Of course, we took a few pictures, so I created  a scrapbooking page with some of them…


Many of my scrapbook pages include photo collages, just because it is faster for me to complete the pages.  I used Assorted Prints 12″ x 12″ Printed cardstock  to create the background of the page. I thought that the doilies of the patterned paper that I used kind of simulate the details of the temple.The title of the page was created with my Silhouette, and regular card stock. The journaling was typed with my computer and printed out on a strip of yellow vellum.


I created the banner with one of the shapes included in Banner Trio Die Set along with patterned paper and regular card stock. The golden hearts were made with one of the Pierced Hearts dies and a piece of metallic card stock.


The little tags were created with a Tag dies set by Fun Stampers Journey, and they were also stamped with sentiments included in Many Words stamp set and Sweet Treats stamp set using Berry Black and Captivating Coral True Color Fusion Inks.


The pretty flower shapes were created with the Enhanced Banner die templates along with patterned papers and card stock. Additionally, I included some Journey Color Buttons, gemstones and pearls by Fun Stampers Journey as the final touches of this page.

Even though, photo collages can take a big chunk of the space on your page, and limit the design itself, with different colors, patterned papers, embellishments and details you can make your pages look different from each other.

Time to Shine [FSJ Locket]

Happy Friday, everyone!

Every year when is time to make the x-mas list of presents for our loved ones, and you have to start thinking about what to give to each of them, it can be overwhelming, especially with the presents for mom or sisters, because you would like to surprise them with something unique and special. Last October, during my visit to Arizona, Richard Garay surprised us with a beautiful gift from the Journey Girl Jewelry Collection. The box was filled with several pieces of jewelry, and it was our task to put them together without any instructions… It was so entertaining….and easy. I think this locket can be a fabulous gift for anyone on your list. So, to give you an idea of how fun this jewelery is, I made a very short animation of the assembling process of this beautiful locket. Please check it out:

You can personalize this locket by changing the charms, the plates, or why not, giving it your own personal touch. Here are two options of many that you can do with these beautiful jewelry”

Today’s Card: Coffee Time

Hi everyone!

Today I am sharing a card that features some amazing products from the Spellbinders Celebra’tions Collection by Richard Garay. I have to say that the stamp set that I used for this card is one of my favorites from this collection, just because I love coffee! Every morning I have to start my day with a cup of coffee.  If I don’t have it, I don’t function correctly 😉


I began, by creating a card base from Captivating Coral card stock. Then, I used the Confetti Plate to die cut the background from SFJ Halzelnut Blend card stock. After that, I die-cut the Pierce Circle  from ButterCream card stock and I adhered it with Journey Foam Squares onto the card front.


Then,  I cut the text bubble using a fun die template called Tag That! and Luscious Lime card stock. The stamp set that I used is called Cup for Two. I stamped one of the sentiments over the text bubble with  SFJ Halzelnut Blend ink and I adhered it to the card with Journey Foam Squares.


Next, I stamped the polkadot cup with Totally Tangerine ink over a piece of FSJ ButterCream card stock. Then, I cut it out with Details Pro Shears (detail scissors) and adhered the shape with Journey Foam Squares over the pierced circle. I embellished the card with a heart shape  covered with Journey Glaze over the cup, and some enamel dots.
