Handmade with Love for me....

Mother's Day is everyday.  Sharing with you a beautiful handmade card from my dear cousin.  Gracias prima bella.  I love it !!!!!  To all you mom's out there, Happy Mother's Day today and every day. 

My First Happy Birthday Banner!

This is a little birthday card for my friend's daughter 1st Birthday.   My first try at making a banner.  It's very simple but I have to say I was a nervous reck trying to put it together.  Can you see and feel the Love oozzzing out on the banner?  lol.  It was made for Baby Cori Noelle. "Happy Birthday Precious".  It's suppose to hang on the wall but I took these pictures with the banners on my sofa. 

The project comes from a Banner Tutorial by:   Laura Denison - Following the Paper Trail:
 Feel free to browse through her blog and youtube channel.  She makes amazing creations.

Latest Update: Altered Box For Donna: Arrived Late but sure (Tarde pero Seguro) lol...

Hello there, Like the title says... "Late but Sure, Tarde pero Seguro" This is a photo of the Altered box I made for my swap partner Donna03311.  SHE GOT IT!!!!!! YAY.  A month later but she got it!!!!! 

All is well.  lolololol
Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great weekend.

This was an added surprise I made for Donna to go with the box above.  A three page canvas board mini album.  I kept it simple so she could put her special pictures or journal in it.  I painted the edges and used the Ancestry design paper from K&Comany through out the box and canvas mini.  The chair, shoe and lady peeking are Stamps from Stampers Best which I embossed with antique embossing powder.  The flowers are I Am Roses and the stick pins I made from my stash.

Altered Mini Box for .......

Hi there, It's me again.  Can't believe I'm posting twice on my blog in one day.  Wooo hoooo... hahaha.

Altered Box From Donna " Donna03311"

Hello there!  Hope you're all doing well.  Wanted to share this beautiful altered box created for me by a terrific crafter.  Her name is Donna and one day while looking at some tutorials on youtube I happened to come across a photo of a really cool box.  I clicked on the link and vuala!  All kinds of georgeous altered boxes started to sliceshow before my eyes.  I loved them all so  I emailed and complemented her.  I went a step further and asked if she would be interested in swapping with me. 
To my happiness I got an answer and here are the pictures of her special creation just for me.  The two last pictures are of the goodies she enclosed in the box.  Aren't they beautiful? 

Take a moment and visit Donna on youtube.  (  Subscribe.  You won't be dissapointed. 

Love to hear from you.  Please feel free to leave a comment below.  Have a great week! 

Abrazos, Maria

A project in the works!

This round box was meant to be created for a swap, but I messed up.  Yes... I know,  boo boo.  But not to worry I did re-coop and made another box for the swap and will post photos soon.  In the mean time I'm here looking at this one.  Looking at it.  The box is looking back at me and saying.... "Well girl,  what's next?  Cause you can't leave me like this! "  I'm just looking....
lol.... I'll get to you soon.  Any ideas?  Leave a comment.  Love to hear some suggestions or ideas.  

Thanks for stopping by.

A Birthday gift for Xiomara

Xiomara's Birthday was back in July.  I know, I know, this posting is a bit late.  But I thought it's never too late to share a project, right? lol.  I bought an "X" made of wood at Michael's Craft store and decorated using beeswax and an assortment of napkins pieces.   I learned this techinque through a tutorial by Natalie.  (Check out my previous post for the link to her tutorials)  If you haven't tried this technique go for it.  You'll love it.  Below you'll see the completed project.  

Thanks for stopping by,

Hello!  It's been a while.  Thought I share a project my daughter Amanda made while she was home on this past summer from school.  This is a wood frame my Michael's Craft store and was decorated with napkins and beeswax.  I think it came out really beautiful especially since it was Amanda's first try with this medium.  The girl has talent! lol

Thanks for stopping by.  Love to hear your comments.

Abrazos, Maria
