Art Journal She wants to change her story.

I'm having a lot of fun again playing with watercolors and pens, I don't have space or don't want to buy things as I used to have so my goal is to do art journals that are simple so a good watercolor set will do it and few stamps This is one I kept from the many I gave away. From Suzi Blue .

Mixed Media Page and Free download

At my Facebook I've been posting my doodling so I made this girl and you can download her HERE
I added to this mixed media page I used Just Jamie Mixed Media Club January kit. I decided to subscribe to push myself to do more mixed media and this size is simple and fast.


Keep updated with me

Hi everyone

I want to stop and say if you don't follow my facebook account for this blog do so as I see it's easier
for me to keep posting projects I'm doing as I'm doing them instead of sometimes doing a full post here at the blog.
So follow me !

I got a Cricut Explore !!

 You may be asking, why would I want a Cricut Explore if I stopped doing crafts? Well, true but not true. I certainly didn't stop Scrapbooking but reduced my craft for sure.
After I was done with my semester, which was the worst I ever had I think it let me so drained that after I felt the need to recharge myself. I felt the need to back up to stories again (more of that later). I still have my Silhouette  Portrait but it's small and I got really frustrated when I tried to install the program on my Yosemite (new system for mac) and started to give problems and would just not install. Error after error. I think Silhouette pays more attention to their paid software to tell the truth. That's another frustration if you want to use SVGS you have to pay $50 for their software. So I actually thought maybe I should buy a new Silhouette. But then I went to the Cricut page and holy cow !!
Cricut is not the same. To me personally is actually better than Silhouette.
So, my husband gave it to me from Amazon which I got this bundle in a really good price. ($199.00- starter bundle).
Reason to update to a Cricut again (I had one way back )

  • Everything is digital no cartridges and you can buy individual images, most of them $.99
  • Cricut Design Space with free and really good projects to give you ideas and you don't have to think, choose a project click make it and the software puts everything ready to cut.
  • We don't have to install software everything is web based - It's called Cricut Design.
  • Print and cut in my view better than Silhouette and you can use your own images.
  • Score tool no more cutting where suppose to score.
  • The dial really does the job and choosing the right blade speed it worked wonderfully so far with regular print paper.
  • Bluetooth capabilities !!! So no more USB cables you have to buy the bluetooth accessory, Amazon has it cheaper.
  • IPAD app coming in January then you can use the app, save create things and send to cut without the need to set up a computer. (This sold me because I have a small space less clutter less things more I feel motivated to create.)
  • Cuts even foam board now 
  • Cricut really got better at putting projects and video tutorials, when you register you Cricut Explore they'll send you step by step tutorials.
  • The pens now really work wonderfully. Really loving the metallic ones.

I'm back to Cricut looking forward to do more Home Decor and really give things that are handmade like this frame I gave to Lucas' Teacher. I was feeling that the stores didn't have things I wanted to give them. I feel pretty much I don't need a lot of supplies really I have none other than paper with the cricut who needs that?
I got the frame SVG at Lori Whitlock.

The box Card is from SVG cuts. HERE.

I hope you have a great 2015


Week in the Life Project 2014

Well I'm active with my digital scrapbooking you can actually see my gallery here at Oscraps. But I wanted to do somethings to document more our daily lives specially this year that Lucas is in Kindergarten.
I was looking at some pictures and came to me that we do scrapbooks of particular stories but we forget so much of everyday details. I totally forgot so many things of our routine when he was a baby or maybe 2,3 years old.
So, I wanted to do something easy because school is taking all my time, I don't have more stamping supplies not even a trimmer anymore so my solution was to use Simple stories 6x8 album and I got some of Ali and other digital templates and I'm printing things at home and I plan to continue to document this kind of mini Project Life style and Simple stories has some nice pocket pages papers and I'm also buying digital kits for Pocket projects and printing. I will list all this at the end.

The good thing is that Ali gave a free download to keep the notes so I don't have to rush to finish the project.

We never forget to Scrapbook

Wow I can't believe I'm even writing this post ! It's been 9 months that I took a break from blogging, classes, blog surfing but never from scrapbooking. I reduced a lot.... I needed a break. But the need for memories never stops.
Life is different now goals are different..
I went back to University to pursue something that now I know is my right path, it's what I want to do. Inspired by my son I decided to go to Childhood Psychology and hopefully later to do a Master on ABA to work with Autistic kids and Special Needs kids. It's though. Life is not the same, I have a son, he has a full schedule but I made a decision and got full support. My degree is  my priority now.
But if you are new here my blog has so much content for you, and many videos on my youtube channel.
I don't have any more paper supplies because I had to do a decision:  I do digital scrapbooking or I stop documenting my memories. So, I made the decision... digital it is.

But Lucas is going to kindergarten this year so I decided to buy a Life stories album  which is 6x8 and document his Kindergarten experience digitally and with paper. I figure this album would be easy to keep up.
Am I going to blog like before, no...but I wanted to let you know that the memories are still being made.
What about you? What have you been doing in this 9 months ?

my heart and my soul layout and news

Hi everyone so many things going on and some big news to share with you. After a long thought I decided to apply to continue my BA that I stopped but this time in Children Psychology to after that  try a Masters in Special Needs and I was accepted  and I will start  on Spring 2014 !!

My passion to be involved with kids with special needs is way beyond my work with my son and I found a call.
I just came back from a trip to Atlantic City I was there for a big Autism Conference and I was so busy before hand, that's why I was so MIA.

I'm almost done helping my neighbour with her scrapbook so I can focus on mine.
