Hola Chicas.. Ya hace tanto desde mi ultimo post.. Ya saben en que he andado.. asi que bueno.. Les quiero mostrar esta tarjeta que hise para alguien especial!

I used a Graphic 45 Voyage Beneath The Sea Paper Collection.. believe it or not it is a very romantic paper! 

Use la coleccion Voyage beneath The Sea de Graphic 45 aunque no lo crean es un papel muy romantico!

I fussy cut some of the images and use the card I love you more than all the fish in the sea.. hahaa.. It's perfect because now I'm living at the beach.. 

Corte a detalle algunas de las imagenes y use la tarjeta que dice "Te amo mas que todos los peces del mar" jajaa.. Queda perfecto ahora que estamos viviendo en la playa..

Inside I just add more paper.. using the 6" x 6"  pattern/solid paper from the same collection
En el interior agregue mas papel.. use el pad de 6"x6" pattern/solid de la misma coleccion

Graphic 45 Design Team Audition 2016

 Hi Ladies.. It is the time of the year! The Graphic 45 Design Team Audition!!!!! and I've decided to apply I would be so happy to be honored with a spot on the Graphic 45 Design Team! I would say.. Graphic 45 Dream Team!
I'm going to share three projects and the tutorial I have created for the first round, I hope you  like it and you can inspire as much as I do using the wonderful products from Graphic 45 but before I'm going to share with you a YouTube video where I show my Style..

Here is a Youtube video with some of my 2015 Graphic 45 projects.. 

Here is my first project
The Gramophone

I did this project from zero.. I made the design and the templates to come up with this beautiful Gramophone using the Good Ol' Sport Paper Collection.

Second Project
The Scallop.. Mini Lamp
For this project I did the Scallop which is a little version of the Nautilus from Jules Verne.. well it is my version.. I use a Plastic Christmas ornament, Sink Stoppers, little pearls and some Mixed Media techniques to give the look of an old submarine!

Lots of fussy cutting.. believe me.. LOTS! from the beautiful Voyage Beneath the Sea Paper Collection.

Third Project
Enchanted Tunnel
For this project I did a tunnel book inside and for the cover I decorated as an Old Story Book telling the story of dragons and Princess!
I love the result!

For my tutorial I altered a Vinyl Disc using the Ladies Diary Deluxe Collectors Edition 

Check out How to  Create a Graphic 45 Layout in a Vinyl Disc by Magda Cortez on Snapguide.

I would love this opportunity and thank you for the consideration.. wish me luck for the second round!!
