What's cooking??

Hello dear bloggers..

I am terribly sorry for my absence. These have been truly busy days. The start of a new school/work year is always full of commitments and I have not been able to keep up with my social media network. That does not mean I have been away from my desk. I have managed to squeeze some divine scrapping time in between all my duties as mum, wife and teacher and am happy to share with you today my entry for the HIPKIT Club DT Call 2015. 

I decided to try and pursue this dream again. HIPKIT is just DIVINE and I feel it has helped me evolve in my style challenging me to use products I wouldn't have considered buying. They are looking for DTs and here is my contribution. We had to present three works, one of them specifically for the DT. I made the three of them for the occasion and I am happy to share them with you. 

Laura's photo shoot came in super handy as I had amazing pics to work with! 
So what's left to say? Just wish me luck!!! :)

Another fun double process layout!

Hey there dear Bloggers! I'm already back! Yes!! This feels like a Scrapbooking indigestion but I'm truly loving it! Nothing like a Scrapbooking overdose to fill my holiday period! 

I'm back today with another double process video where I finished scrapping the last pictures I had printed with my canon selphy. This weekend I had to sit down and sort
through my pictures and print another bunch! Yeah!! In these layouts I had a lot of fun using the HipKit Club stuff we got in May and June.
 I am so looking forward to start receiving my kits again in October. I took a little break from the club as I said coz the kits were piling up on me and May was just so busy this year. Now I'm happy to be able to look forward to new goodies in October when fall comes in. I've been looking at what the big companies have to offer as regards new collections and I have to admit I have fallen in love with quite a few things so far!
So here I will leave you the Link for today's process video. Hope you enjoy it! See you soon!

Summer Project 2015 More layouts!

Hey there friends, 

I'm so excited to able able to share with you my Summer a Project Book Process so far and
today I have another couple of layouts to show you. I filmed the process of the first one and am posting pics of the second one as well.

In these layouts I told the story about celebrating end of school year, the accomplishment of having been working in my school for ten years now and that's as long as I've been on Spain as well so far. I also talk about he a,axing work colleagues I have and the fact that it is thanks to them that work life becomes so much better. I just feel so blessed to be surrounded by wonderful people. 

Here are some pics and a link to the process video! I hope you are all having a great week!

See you soon with more!

First two layouts for Summer Project 2015

Hey there!!! Hurray for holidays! I'm on the blog today to update you on my Summer Album 2015 progress.
I am sorry for the haphazard look to this post. I'm posting from my iPad and it goes bonkers every time when I try to edit and publish posts! 
So far I've done a couple of layouts but I've got loaaaads more to do! So.. Won't be chit chatting so much! I'll leave you with the pictures and I also managed to film a video process for the first layouts! Hope you enjoy it!
I started with a family picture as it was definitely the most appropriate introduction to a fun family Summer!

Process video right here! 

What came next is a picture of my daughter all ready for her
end of the year Ballet festival. 

I mainly used HipKit club
stuff to do this, May kit if I'm not mistaken. We had these gorgeous summery die cuts and papers from Citrus Twist which were just perfect for this layout!

Fun in a box Process Video using Cliquekits

Hey there dear friends.

Here I am again already with another layout! Boy am I delighted to have a bit more time to scrap on my hands!! As promised I'm still using the gorgeous stuff Erica from Cliquekits Club sent me with a lot of beautiful paper and embellishments from Pinkfresh Studio.

This picture is of Laura when she was barely two.. Playing with a box on her head. She was just the happiest toddler you could ever imagine! I have to admit I was and still am one lucky mum. She's a bit more temperamental now, slight pre adolescent at 6 sometimes.. But she's still my beautiful smiling baby! I'm really enjoying scrapping these pictures of when she was younger. 

That's the magic of Scrapbooking. It works like a time machine. Pity Michael J Fox didn't know anything about it.. It would have saved him a lot of time and energy I'm sure! Hehe

This week I've challenged myself to detox from my iPad a bit, from Facebook and Internet and especially I've challenged myself to not use my iPad infront of my daughter at any point in the day. I am really concerned it's stealing away precious time that I can enjoy talking and playing with her. I'm on day two currently, frantically typing away at 6am before she even wakes up! A girls gotta do what a girls gotta do!

Hope you enjoy the process video and I'll be back with more soon!

Clique kits club

Hey there scrappy friends! How everyone doing?
A few weeks ago I got one of the nicest surprises ever! I had won a paper pack on the Clique Kits Club Facebook page and had not even realized it until on month or so later! Oh the shame! I contacted Erica the owner thinking it was too late but she was sooooo nice she sent it over and I got it within a few days. And not only that! Together with the beautiful My Minds Eye paper I had won I also got a fantastic package from Clique Kits! Your have to check out what they offer right HERE.
I made a video showing you all the goodies and you can check up on it HERE.
Anyways, after these busy busy weeks I was dying to dive into these goodies and so I finally did and came up with this first layout of sweet Laura. She must have been about two in this picture.. The happiest toddler you could ever imagine. I have had no trouble with terrible twos and tantrums with this angel. She's just been sooooo good!
Erica sent me paper from the April Kit which included cute Pink Fresh studio paper and then I had a great mixture of embellishment such a watercolour die cuts, sodalicious thin wooden words etc..
So, Erica, thank you so much again for your kindness! This is the very first time I have actually won something and boy was it big!!!! Hopefully I'll dig into these goodies a bit more this week and create a few more layouts with some of Laura's older pics as the papers go deliciously well with them!
In the meantime hope you all have a GREAT week! 

I can smell the summer!! Veranito veranito!

Hello dear friends, can you smell it? Can you feel it? 
Boy I sure can! We've been suffering an awful heatwave for the last week and a half with temperatures going beyond 40 degrees! Insane! 
So, at one week from my much desired holidays I have already prepared my mega summer project which I will share with you today. For the last two years I have used the XLARGE Smash book which has been great and you can see how they turned out HERE for 2013 and HERE for 2014,  but this summer I had something else in mind which help me cut costs a little bit and personalize it the way I really like! 
So I put together a great selection on 12x12 paper and cardstock and using heavy cardboard for my covers I made my own 12x12 project book. I love working on 12x12 surfaces and this will give me the possibility to keep doing "layouts" throughout summer and have them all on the same page! 
So here is the final result! With a bit of washi tape on the edges, lots of fun embellishment from some of the amazing summer collections which came out this summer and my album is ready to go! 
Shortly I will post a video with the summer kit I have prepared to take with me!
Hope you like the idea! 

Hola amig@s que tal!? Come se nota el verano y además con esta tremenda olada de calor! Que sufrimiento!
A una semana de que empiezan mis vacaciones ya tengo preparado mi mega proyecto veraniego que os voy a enseñar hoy. Los últimos 2 años ultice los smash books XL y podéis ver el de 2013 AQUÍ y el de 2014 AQUÍ.
Este año sin embargo he cambiado el plan y he creado mi propio libro utilizando unos papeles, básicos, cartón grueso para las tapas y voila! Libro hecho! Y además de tamaño 30x30 que es el tamaño que mas me gusta! Así todo el verano voy a poder seguir haciendo layouts como me encanta hacer! También utilizó un montón de adornos de muchas colleciones chulas que han salido este verano! 
En breve os haré un vídeo el kit de material que me llevaré conmigo!
Espero que os guste la idea!!!!

VR to Kitty Scrapper + Process Video in English + 530 subscriber giveaway!

Hey there scrappy friends,

I can´t believe I´m sharing two videos at one go with you today.. Actually.. there´s THREE of them! 

That does NOT mean that I have time to scrap.. these last few weeks of school are just crazy busy and my scrap corner has been a little bit neglected.. My only hope is that summer holidays are right around the corner! 

So the first video is a Video response to Kitty Scrappers Tag. Her orginal video can be found right HERE and basically she came up with 7 questions for us Youtubers to answer. So HERE goes my response! Thankyou Nancy for doing this, its been so much fun to put a face to all those wonderful hands who create so much art out there!

The second video for the day is a process video in English.. yep.. its been a while since I´ve done one of those.. and maybe I am getting a bit influenced by other ladies out there but I do ramble a bit in this videos about life stuff rather than the actual layout! Sorry! The subject was a sensitive one and I got carried away! 

I used the March or April HipKit for this one.. I am not sure which one of the two kits as I get them together and I somehow can´t say which one is which! I love the Spring colours in both kits and since this was a Mother´s Day layout I felt I could be really free in my use and abuse of pastel colours and made it as sickly sweet as possible! :)

Sadly enough though I am taking a tiny little break form my kits this summer and I will be skipping the July and August kit. I still have so much to work with and I can´t justify the purchase unless I use it so I have decided to stop the kits for two months and restart my subscription in September. Kimberly the owner is so nice and understanding and made the whole porcess super easy! Way to go Kimberly you are the best.. I secretly know I´ll be crying my eyes out when the July and August kits are revealed and I´ll definitely be kicking myself for this awful decision.. but... it´s what it is... 

Hope you enjoy both videos! Good bye for now and thanks for being there. Remember I´m also doing a GIVEAWAY on my youtube channel! Feel free to particpate wherever you are from!

Reto EGOSCRAP Kimidori Mayo 2015

Hola que tal!?

Hoy vuelvo a tentar la suerte y participar en el reto mensual de Kimidori que aparte que son retos que inspiran, el premio es INCREÍBLE! Si! 100€ euracos para gastar en la tienda! Todo lo que haría yo con 100€!!!!!!

Así que aquí estoy con mi participación! Hice un scraplift de mi misma ya que hace unos días hice un layout parecido con círculos y me gusto tanto que quise repetirlo! En el reto de este mes había que hacer un layout de nosotras! Algo que no solemos hacer mucho la verdad porque es más fácil o nos parece más importante escrapear a los que queremos!

Espero que os guste y desearme mucha suerte! :) y gracias KIMIDORI por esta fantástica oportunidad que nos das cada mes!

Hello there world.

How are we all this week? I´m having a weird week to say the least but coping through it. We have amazing Spring weather in Spain and I have found myself complaining of the heat at work! Insane! It´s only March! My classroom gets sunlight all morning and it turns in to an unbearable oven by the time it´s 1pm. Add 30 kids sweating and talking in class and you can bake yourself a chicken!

Today I will show you a couple of layouts I did and I also have a process video for one of them. I used my January Hip Kit to make them and am loving these kits so far. They are jam packed and come right on time. My only problem is that I have such little time to dedicate to scrapbooking lately that they are piling up and its making me feel quite nervous and uncomfortable to see so much pretty stuff and not have time to use it. I will hopefully catch up a bit with my scrapbooking ´duties´in the coming Easter holidays! Can´t wait!

So here is the first layout I did and with this I have particpated in the weekly challenge for Hip Kit Club members where we had to scraplift an idea shown by one of the designers. 

I actually enjoyed doing this a lot and it came out quite quickly compared to other layouts I have done in the past. We had to follow a recipe and use parts from a cut out sheet, a frame and other things! The pictures where taken in Italy, I posed with one of the human statues in a street in Venice and all of a sudden he moved and planted a HUGE kiss on my face! I was so taken by surprize. That´s Italian passion for you! hehe

The second layout took me a bit more time and I actually filmed it so you can see the full process video here if you click on the video link at the bottom. I used tissue paper behind the picture to add some volume and also becuase it created quite a dreamy look to the layout and coordinated perfectly with the background paper with the clouds. 

 This is another picture from my trip to Italy were I had the opportunity to meet a dear dear friend of mine and have lunch with him whilst enjoying a lovely chat. Soul inspiring I must say. I really wanted to document this day as it meant a lot to me!

And that´s all I have to share with you today! Thanks for visiing my blog!! Have a happy week! :)
