Handmade recipe book! ^^

Hi lovelies! ^^ Are you starving for some craftiness? Do you love experimenting on the kitchen and would like to keep all the deliciousness you make? If so, here you have some ideas on how to make your own recipe book, just like Julia Child! :P


To keep all my recipes together I picked a 6x8' album with page protectors so that it would prevent the splatters when cooking. Also, I love the structure of it and it be perfect to add one recipe for each page! ^^


For the cover, I had a lot fun creating a backgraound with white embossing and this gorgeous stampset by Brandi Kincaid for Feed your Craft! ^^ Then I added the title with some gold embossing. :D 


Once I got the cover done, I made the first recipe page! I've decided to take nice pictures to my favorite food when making it and I'll be building this album little by little. :)


I'll keep using the same structure for each recipe: one little pocket for the name of the recipe, next to it I'll be adding the picture and, on the pocket below I'll write the ingredients and the instructions! I think that this way it will be easy to read it and also to create all the other pages! ^^


On this case, I decided to introduce this blue and also some yollow and gold to make it pop! I love the sweet look it got! I used the Bold Alphabet stamp by Feed your Craft to create the title and my typewriter to write the repipe. Moreover, I added some washi tape and a little bit of stitching to divide the spaces! ^^


I really like how these first pages turned out and I can wait to create some more! That way I will have and excuse to cook more of my favorite foods! ^^ Also, I hope you got inspired to create your own and have fun cooking and crafting! :D

Best wishes! ^^

Mini Álbums Innsbruck! ^^

¡Muuuy buenos días a todas! ¿Como va el verano? Yo lo estoy aprovechando para hacer scrap y documentar fotos de todo el año que se habían quedado en la cola de cosas por hacer jejeje.
Hello everybody!! How are you doing? I'm making the most of my summer holidays to scra some pictures from the year that had been waiting on the to do list! :P 


En este caso os quiero enseñar dos mini álbumes que hice de un viaje con mis amigas a Innsbruck! Nos lo pasamos super bien y pensé que lo mejor que podía hacer para recordar todos estos buenos momentos era regalarles un pequeño álbum con las fotos más representativas. :D
On this case, I want to show you a mini album I made of a trip with my friends to Innsbruck! We had a really great time and I thought that the best way to remember all this good moments was to give each of them a cute tiny album with the most representative pictures. ^^  


Para la estructura me he decantado por algo sencillo pero vistoso. He creado una portada con mi papel favorito de la coleccion Bohemian Soul de Sweet Möma que recoge todo el álbum que tiene estructura de acordeón. Es una encuadernación divertida y fácil de hacer que os puede servir perfectamente para hacer regalos o para recordar eventos bonitos! ^^
For the structure, I decided to do something simple but attractive. I've created a cover with my favorite paper from the collection Bohemian Soul by Sweet Möma to hold an accordeon book. It's an easy and fun binding that can be very useful to make a present or to document little events. :) 


A continuación, os dejo con los detalles de las páginas interiores, en las que he usado papeles de la colección Serendipity de Dear lizzy para American Crafts, otros recortes de colecciones como la Take me Away de Paige Evans para Pink Paislee y sellos de Feed your Craft y Lora Bailora. ^^
Next, I'm showing you the inside pages where I've used papers from Serendipity by Dear Lizzy for American Crafts, some scraps from the Take me Away collection by Page Evans for Pink Paislee and some stamps from Feed your Craft and Lora Bailora. :D







Y aquí podéis ver cómo queda el álbum desplegado, ¿qué os parece? ¡A mi me encanta1^^
And here you can see the album unfolded, what do you think? I love it! :P



Finalmente, para cerrarlo me decanté por un cierre estilo sobre que ya decora la portada y le da un toque viajero muy sutil! :D
Finally, I closed the mini album with a mailing closing that decorates the cover and algo gives it a subtile traveling touch! :)


¡Espero que os haya gustado mucho y que os sirva para los mini álbumes que van a salir de todas las fotos bonitísimas que estamos haciendo este verano! ^^ 
I hope you liked it and that it inspired you to keep all your memories and beautiful pitures of this season! ^^

¡Que seáis muy felices!
Best wishes!

LO Live a colorful life – Reto Up and Scrap


¡Muy buenos días a todas! Hoy vengo con un proyecto muy especial para mí y que me hace mucha ilusión enseñaros. Hacía mucho tiempo que tenía esta idea dándome vueltas por la cabeza y con el reto que ha propuesto Up andScrap para este mes de junio he tenido la excusa perfecta para realizarlo.   
Hello everyone! Today I’m so glad to show you a very special Project. I’ve been thinking about doing it for a long time and thanks to a challenge by Up and Scrap I’ve finally committed and worked on it!


He querido unir las dos partes más relevantes que definen mi vida. Por un lado, el scrapbooking, que me da mucha alegría y me ayuda a ser más creativa y a pensar más allá.  Por otro lado, la física, la carrera que estoy estudiando, que aunque me dé muchos dolores de cabeza me ha enseñado a luchar y me ha hecho crecer y madurar en todos los sentidos, mucho más allá de las fórmulas y los teoremas.
I wanted to combine two of the most important aspects of my life. On the one hand, scrapbooking has given me lots of happiness and has helped me on being more creative and thinking outside the box. On the other hand, there is Physics, the degree I’m studying that has thought me many thing in life, more than formulas and theorems.


Así pues, como el reto de Up and Scrap de junio trata de usar los colores del arco iris (link de reto aquí), qué mejor que ir al fondo de la cuestión y plasmar la física que hay detrás de este fenómeno que tanto me gusta.
So, as the challenge was about using the colors of the rainbow I’ve decided to face the reality of this fact and capture the physics of this phenomenon.


Lo que he transformado al formato de layout es la formación de los colores del arco iris a partir de la reflexión y la refracción de la luz en una gota de agua. Para el fondo he usado un boli de gel en azul cielo de American Crafts para escribir la formulación del fenómeno, ¡me encanta la sutileza que le da!
What I’m showing on this layout is the formation of the colors of the rainbow through the reflection and refraction of the light inside a raindrop. To create the background I’ve used a light blue gel pen from American Crafts to write the formulation of the problem. I like how subtle it looks!


También he querido usar papel de purpurina plateada, que representa la luz blanca. Además, me ha servido para hacer parte del título y una pequeña decoración con troqueles de letras y corazones.
I’ve also used some silver glittered paper to represent the white light and to create a part of the title and a few  little embellishments with some dies.  


La parte complicada ha venido con la representación de la gota de agua, ¡que es la causante de la magia del arco iris! He usado papel vegetal e hilos de los siete colores que lo forman y me las he tenido que ingeniar para que no se notasen los extremos de estos (pero creo que ha quedado bastante limpio jeje). También he querido dar un toque especial al círculo de vellum cosiéndolo con azul clarito y lo he combinado cosiendo la foto del mismo color. Además, he cosido en gris algunas líneas y ángulos importantes para la resolución del problema. :P
The tricky part of the layout has happened when representing the raindrop, the creator of the magic of the rainbow! I’ve used some vellum and colored twine and I’ve hidden the ends somewhere in the page ;). I’ve also stitched around the circle with light blue twine that I’ve matched with the stitching on the picture. Moreover, I’ve added some stitched details on grey to represent some significant lines and angles from the formulation. :P  


La parte más colorida la he hecho con papeles de diferentes colecciones con los distintos colores del arco iris. Un truquito que os recomiendo en estos casos en que hay muchos papeles juntos de distintos colores es entintar con Distress ink los bordes de cada papel con un color que combine para que resalten más. ;) Finalmente he hecho algunos detalles en cosido en cada color para dar más continuidad a los hilos de la gota. :)
The most colorful side of the layout has been created with some patterned paper from different collections. A trick to take into account when using a lot of different colored papers is to use some distress ink from the same color and blend it on the edges, it will make the colors stand out a lot more! Finally, I’ve added some stitched details on every color to continue with the twine on the raing¡drop. :)


Por último, os quiero hablar del título. Me gusta mucho cómo ha quedado con la composición de toda la página y haciéndolo cosido creo que combina muy bien con los otros elementos en esta técnica y me encanta cómo combina con la purpurina. ^^
Lastly, I’ve created the title with some grey twine that combies so well with all the other stitched elements and aldo with the glittered letters.


Y hasta aquí todo lo que os quería enseñar de este layout. Me ha gustado mucho combinar estas dos facetas de mi vida y seguro que lo voy a repetir en más ocasiones. Me encanta la combinación de la rigurosidad de la física y la creatividad del scrapbooking. ¿a vosotras qué os parece? ¡Contadme qué os ha parecido y si queréis ver más ejemplos en un futuro!
And that’s all I wanted to tell you about this Project. I’m happy you get to know me a little bit more. I’ve had so much fun combining the creativity of the scrapbooking and the accuracy of Physics. I believe that I’m going to create more projects like this one with other phenomenon because I’ve enjoyed it so much. What do you think about it? Let me know if you want to see some more projects like this!


¡Que seáis muy felices! ^^

Best wishes! ^^

Project Life Innsbruck - Feed your Craft

Hi everybody! I'm partially back from my exams and I finally had some time to scrap a little bit! Here you've got the result of some free time with beautiful patterned paper, bright inks and the amazing stamps from Feed your Craft! ^^


I used some 6x6' patterned papers from C'est la Vie by Pink Paislee and  Bloom by Crate Paper! I gave some life to the whole layout with bright pink, yellow and turquoise, love that color combo! ^^


First, I created my own journaling card with the stamp set Journal it from Feed your Craft! I stamped the word "travelogue" twice in black and gray and then I wrote the destination of the trip with a pink gel pen from American Crafts! ^^


I also used the little icons from that same stamp set to add some little accents that match perfectly with my pictures! On the picture above I used the fork and knife stamp to create a fun border and used the s rating stamp to document the typical food we ate there! :P


On this picture you can see how I created my own patterned paper with the plane stamp, it was just perfect to add with the picture of the time we spent flying! :D You can see that combining the stamps with your pictures you can get a more personal layout, with little details that will make it more special! ^^


So I hope you liked it and that you get to document all your memories and that you have fun usung bright colors and lots of stamps and inks! ^^

Best wishes!

Traveler's Notebook Wish List! - Feed your Craft


Hello everybody! How is your week going? I hope it is filled with love, creativity and beautiful things! ^^
Today I bring you a dreamy layout with the beautiful stamps and the cutest mini flairs from Feed your Craft! :D


I love this pages where you get to express your thoughts even if they are deeper feelings or just some silly ideas or wishes. And all you need to go along with it are some beautiful craft supplies that inspire you and make you happy! ^^


In this page I just wanted to write down some of my most sincere wishes and the Bold Alphabet Stamp was perfect for this. The size allows you to write all your thoughts because they aren't too big and at the same time you can see it very well because they aren't too small either. ;) 


Another cute item that really inspires me and makes me happy when using them are the charming mini flairs. They are just like little candies and the saying on them from The Story Color Mini Flair pack are perfect for any time! ^^ 


And to tie all this page together I've used the dreamy papers from the collection C'est la vie from Pink Payslee. I love all the floras and the soft colors from it! ^^


So, I hope you got inspired to document your thoughts, because when your write them down they become more real and will help you see them with more perspective and clarity! :)

Best wishes to you all! ^^
