Hola Amigas! Happy Saturday. Here in Jersey we have BEAUTIFUL weather. We are off to my sister's soon for a BBQ. Well I have to tell you that you will not be disappointed with the new Idea Book & Catalog. Lots of new and FUN additions. I am glad that they are now offering a fabric line...One of my many new passions! Here is what I made recently with our SU fabric.My first is a luggage tag. The front also has a vinyl layer so you can slip in your business card or you personal info...Cute, huh? How cute would this be on your convention bag?

And this one is a cute pocket tissue holder...No more losing your tissues in your purse anymore...This would make great Bridesmaid gifts, Mothers of the Bride and Groom many possibilities...


Accessories: Deck the Halls and Springtime Vintage Fabric, 12 gauge vinyl (non-su)

DCBD 232-Color Challenge

Hola Amigas...WOW it has been so long that I have played with my Diva Sisters. Life is just having me take 2 steps back...But I am ready...FULL THROTTLE! Solimar's last day of school is tomorrow. Where did the time go? Kindergarten was FUN experience both for Solimar and I. The Kindergartners had so much FUN at their picnic yesterday. I was a Face Painter...WOW, my skills are pretty good! Today they have Rocket Day!
Joaquin and I are looking forward to the rockets being launched.
This week we have a color challenge.

My first card shows a simple background for the main image...I will then show you two other ways to WOW your card...Here I changed the background by using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder...And here I used the Direct to Paper (DTP) technique. I used Sahara Sand Ink Pad and just rubbed it across the Sahara Sand cardstock in different directions. This is my favorite one...

So what do you think?

Paper: Not Quite Navy, Poppy Parade, Whisper White, Sahara Sand

VC Rocks Blog Hop-Big SHOT

Hola Amigas...Here we are with our 2nd Blog Hop. This time we are showing items using the Big Shot...So what did you think of Stace's BAB card? CUTE, huh? One of my favorite Big Shot items are Embossing Folders. They can make any blah project...WOW!

I purchased clear card boxes to make gift sets. Although I could have added just a bow for a pretty presentation look at the box after embossing it.Doesn't it look great? I am sure that the recipients in Solimar's school will love what's inside as much as the outside. Now you can go see my neighbor Holly.

To start at the beginning you can go to the VC Rocks Blog.
