Dreams Diary (masculine gift)

Hi! How was your week? Mine was very busy... but as you have seen, I've found some free time almost everyday for a little crafting and it feels so good!
Yesterday, I made these two notebooks for a friend. He told me he needs a notebook for take notes in conferences, so I made this first one really simple, with a space in the cover for write the subject.

And the second one is a little more complicated. He is a big dreamer, I mean, he dreams a lot, almost every night, and always remember the content of his dreams very clearly. That's why I decided to make for him this 'Dreams Diary'... Blue and shiny like I imagine is the world of Dreams...

I added a 'number 1' tag, 'cause I presume he will fill these 40 pages very soon and then I'll be making a second one...

Enjoy your weekend!

I'm been Inspired.

Lucy has challenged us to create a card inspired by another designer... It's not a secret that one of my Cardmaker Divas is Sarah, from Sarah's Paper Tray, and THIS card that she posted in these days just leave me amazed and looking forward to make something similar. I simply LOVE that rainbow butterfly!!! So, here is the ATC that I made thinking of her card...

And the close up to my drawing.

Thanks, Sarah, for all the inspiration I always find in your blog!

In Spring, Sakura!

Second post for today... I'm still thinking in the proximity of Spring...

The cherry blossom ('Sakura' in Japanese), which in spring full prolifically every city in Japan only for one or two weeks, is one of their national symbols and represents for them the most pristine beauty as well as the impermanence of the ephemeral life. When reaches the flowering cherry's season, Japanese go for a walk or sit in the parks under the trees to watch it full of flowers. This is a beautiful custom called "Hanami" and is one of the most enjoyable I know.

This is what I'm talking about!

Today, with the advance of the Spring in my window, I made a new ATC based on the sketch no. 57 of Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, using origami paper with the image of Sakura and a representation of one of these flowers (although they are usually white) as the focal point of the card.

This is the original sketch. It looks so simple! But was more difficult to do than I thought.

Have a nice and crafty week!

Spring in advance

Throughout Iberian Peninsule is freezing, snowing or, at least, raining a lot... However here, in Barcelona, is almost Spring! Blue sky, nice weather... even you can see some flies! This seems nice, but I really love snow and this Winter I've not seen a single snowflake (unless those of my cards). So, it's a little sad for me this advanced of Spring... I hoped to see fall at least a little snow before it reached!
So, in this mood I made another ATC, this time using the Unscripted Sketch no. 43. I think it turned out not bad but, don't know... Maybe too yellow?

This is the original (great) sketch, wich I rotated a little bit...

I think I can try one more card for it!

The music of saving.

Hi! Happy Sunday! (How I love to say that!)
In current times save money at banks is completly necessary, but save some coins in a money-box at home is always a good idea. More than once, this coins pull me out of a hurry!
My Sunday project has been this money-box based on Feng Shui. Actually it's not a box, but a sweet corn empty can covered with my favorite musical patterned paper (an allusion in this case to the sound of coins falling into the can).

According to Feng Shui's theory, to attract money to your house you need to use red and golden colors, and metal or metalized materials too. The front focal point in my project is a chinese letter that means "Metal" or "Money", and I cut it in golden metalized cardstock...

This upper view shows the paper flower decoration... A reminder of life's beauties!

What about you? Do you make savings at home too?

Dress in Pink.

Just another notebook. My first one in pink...
I didn't like too much this cardboard pale pink for a notebook. It's too sweetie! Maybe it's perfect for a new-born baby girl card but not for a notebook... But, since I have this lovely papers, I had to try it. And I love the final result!

I combined stripes and spots in the cover for the Kaboodle Doodles Challenge no. 24.
(I simply adore my new brads. They're perfect for buttons!)

The inside...

How do you like it?

Back to notebooks

A quickie post to show you the last notebook I made on these days.
It's pretty simple, but I like how it looks.
I love this combination of aqua and orange!

By the way, is the first time I use a brad. Yeah!

In Love and Friendship day.

Hope you all have had a great Valentine's Day!
Since yesterday (at night after a lovely day), I've been working in this set of six ATC's for a friend. It's my first complete set of cards, including envelopes and a card-keeper, and I could say I'm satisfied. I know a traditional set must include similar cards, but I really liked to make each card unique.

This is the card-keeper closed and opened.

And here you have the close up of the six cards.

I wrote a sentiment only in one of the cards, because I want to give my friend the chance to use each card in any case she wants to. Hope my friend like it!

Have a nice week!

Good day!

Yes... Good day to all of you and thanks for visit my blog!
Today's card is an ATC (how could it not be so?) and I choose a 'Good day' theme ('Buen dia' in spanish) for the sketch FTL 77 from Clean & Simple blog.
Love the simplest sketch like this,
and I'm really glad to wish you a really good day with this card!
