Summer Themed ATC

Next week I am part of the THAT'S HOT blog hop hosted by Yolie and although I have my prject ready I have to wait until next week for the big reveal sooooo... In the mean time to get you in the spirit of Summer (just in case this heat isn't) here are some pics of my summer theme ATCs that I made for a swap over at SVG Cuts blog. We are in our 4th ATC swap and they are so much FUN!!

Aaaand since we are in the SUMMER theme, Abby from Scrapbookaholic By Abby  has a challenge over at her blog and this little ATC fits right into her: Challenge #10: Anything Summer!~

For this theme I chose the Tropical Friends Collection from SVG Cuts it has so many cute little sea critters that I did not know which one to pick! At the end I decided for this cutie:

I tried to change up the face a bit with my different Peachy Keen face stamps which I LOOOVE they give so much character to your die cuts. I also liked how the simple face tuned out too. I just wanted to give each of them their own little face. Hope all my fellow swappers like their ATC.... Now stay tuned for next weeks blog hop which will be filled with talented ladies and goodies along the way.

Hernandez Family Collage

I just finished a Family Collage for my niece who got married last October. I wanted to do this for her wedding gift but did not have the time. We are all meeting in Lake Tahoe next week so  I wanted to have it ready for her by then. This collage is inspired by Collage Queen AMY  she is an expert at making FABULOUS collages check her blog out for some awe inspiring collages.

The deets: For the papers I used BoBunny's Olivia papers which are so bold and have really nice details. For solids I used AC cardstock. 

The font is a Fabulous font that I just LOOOVEEE is the same one I used for the Garden scrap swap below. Check out Lettering Delights Verana Alphabet, you can use the flowery vines as beautiful accents.

The last photo is the framed finished piece. Unfortunately it looks dark, I couldn't get a good picture because of all the reflections. Hope she likes it.

Scrap Swap #1 - SVGcuts

I have done many swaps but this is the first SCRAP AWAP that I have done of this kind. I was good to do a mix of items. For infomration see SVGcuts scrap swap #1 I am sure there will be another one coming soon.  The very talented Mary Rudakas was my partner in this swap, I was a bit nervous that the Queen of svg cuts was going to get my work, so I did my best and came up with this combination for her. She requested a set for a garden theme page.

The color scheme for the set was inspired by the pretty ribbon I found. I think the colors are very bright and go perfect with the garden theme. The Garden title was made using the Verana Alpha from Lettering Delights . I used left over vines with flowerrs for a nice touch on the fence.  Here is a close-up of the ribbon so you can see the pretty combination and the details of the vines in the Verana Alphabet.

Directions to make this super CUTE and easy to make 3d watering can are HERE and you can see soo many different cute samples. I made mine to matcht the color scheme of the whole I sent to Mary. The flower is made by using scalloped circles, sprayed them with glimmer mist and bunched them up. Once dried I fluffed them up into a carnation looking flower for a wonderful and sparkly accent.

I am glad Mary liked her Srap can't wait to see mine.
