Latina Crafter Junio Blog Hop + Giveaway!!



Hello my friends! Today, I am joining the Latina Crafter's Design Team for a fun blog hop showcasing the beautiful sets of June.

Hoy, tengo 2 trabajitos hechos con amor para ustedes:

Feliz cumpleaños 21: Una tarjetita muy colorida para alegrar el cumpleaños de una linda amiga. La base de la tarjeta fue hecha con "Fleur de Lis Square Dies". Usé dies para cortar las flores y hojas en fieltro, le agregué una perlita en el centro. El numero fue estampado en el mismo papel, cortado y pegado sobre la base blanca.




Salmo 150:6 "Todo lo que respira alabe al Señor". Este es uno de mis sets favoritos. Me encantan los versiculos biblicos. Para esta tarjeta usé papel de KaiserCraft, mi cinta blanca preferida, le añadí un par de florecitas de papel y el flourish de perlas. Al papel le agregué unas tres pasadas con mi máquina de coser.



Aqui les dejo la lista de participantes:

Espero que les gusten mis trabajos, sus comentarios son muy bien recibidos. Si tienen alguna pregunta, no duden en dejarme un mensajito y yo con gusto les escribo.

No se olviden de dejar sus comentarios en todos los blogs de hoy y serán incluidas en el sorteo de una tarjeta de regalo con un valor de $20.00!!

Que tengan un lindo dia!
Bendiciones.

Flower Headbands

Hello my friends! Hope you are having a great day. Sorry for being MIA, I am having really bad allergy problems that slowed me down at the point I just wanted to sleep and do nothing. The last couple of days I've been feeling a bit better and finished a couple of projects (some for CHA, so I will show them later)

Anyway, My daughter had a couple of birthday parties and we decided to get creative and made something original and special for her friends. We came up with this cute idea for headbands.
The die flower is "Posy Patch Die" from Heartfelt Creations and the chevron bitty buttons are from Latina Crafter. I bought the felt from Benzie Bazaar (etsy), I highly recomment this felt, it is fantastic to use on your die-cutting machine.

Hope you like them.
Have a great day!

She always had the most wonderful and sweet words for you and your work, she was very talented and she will be missed for sure. I got to know her through our Design Team for Heartfelt Creations.

I made this card to send to her husband. He will be hopping as well. If you would like to leave a message here to her husband, you are more than welcome.

Nuevos sellos de Junio de Latina Crafter!!

Hello! Today I am blogging in Spanish as a Guest Designer for Latina Crafter! Hope all my English speaking friends can enjoy this post as well. Thanks!

Hola!! Hoy tengo 3 projectos super especiales que he hecho usando los nuevos sellos de Junio de Latina Crafter, primero quiero agradecer a Diana por la invitación para ser la Diseñadora Invitada este mes y tambien quiero agradecer a todas mis amigas de habla hispana que me estan visitando el dia de hoy.

Feliz Cumpleaños Cajita y Tag: Para este trabajo usé el set Números. Esta idea la tenia en mi cabeza hace ya un tiempo, super sencilla y muy original. Para este projecto envolví una cajita con papel blanco que usa mi hija para sus dibujos y empecé a sellar el papel con el número 7, luego le agregué Washi Tape en 3 diseños diferentes. Le agregué un tag a la cajita, el tag lo decoré con un pedazo de Doily blanco, cinta rosada y Washi Tape.

Tarjeta Quinceañera: Esta tarjeta me quedó muy elegante y me gustó mucho la idea de hacerla monocromática, usé el set "Sueña". La palabra "Quinceañera" y el Diseño de corazón lo estampé en cartulina Blanca usando "Vintage Photo Distress Ink", usé Fancy Tags Two Dies de Spellbinders para crearlo. Aqui tambien use Doily Blanco, cinta color burgundy y unos rhinestones del mismo color. Usé pop dots adhesivos para agregar la pieza blanca mas pequeña y el tag que dice Quinceañera. Le agregué una perlita al lazo, el lazo lo hice con el bow-easy (Los lazos quedan perfectos con el bow-easy)


Prov. 17:17: Para esta tarjeta usé el set "Confianza y Alabanza en el Señor". Este versiculo es uno de mis favoritos. La tarjeta es color rosado, usé papeles de My Mind's Eye (Lost & Found Two) y usé mi máquina de coser para añadir algo extra. La cinta es llamada Seam Binding. Le agregué un par de flores de papel rosado al cual le puse un botón rojo con Twine rosado.



Espero que les gusten mis creaciones, si tiene alguna duda o necesitan más información, no duden en preguntar o dejarme un mesajito.

Muchas gracias por su visita.
Que tengan un lindo día!
