The Martha Stewart Side Of Me: {Notebook to Journal}

Para español visita Fiebre de Scrapbook, ahí escribí acerca de este proyecto.
At the beginning of the year I had to come up with a gift for 17 girls ages 12 – 17. This gift had to be inexpensive and thoughtful. I decided that a Journal was what the girls needed, I looked everywhere for cute and not so pricy ones. I had no luck so I decided to make them myself!
The only materials I had to buy were the plain composition notebooks and some fun paper. I already had embelishments, stickers, buttons and the other papers I used to decorate the notebooks.

Transforming the notebooks was really easy. I tried to choose paper that would go with the girl’s personality. In this picture I have them almost done, the only things I had left was to glue their names and final details.

Here is one of the Journals finished. I decorated them with stamps, buttons, stickers, twine and strips of paper.
The girls were so happy when I gave them their Journal. I loved seing their smiles. It’s incredible how a simple notebook can be transformed into a beautiful thing that someone else will apreciate and give it a special use.
I’m thinking that you can transform some other things, for you or to give as gifts. I can think of notepads, little notebooks, recipe books, telephone and address book, a planner. Who knows? Maybe you can make a Journal for yourself!

Scrapbook: {A Star is Born)

Me decidí y participe por primera vez en ScrapFIT con este layout. El tema que ellos propusieron es “Wish Upon a Star” y el requisito es incorporar estrellas dentro de la pagina.
Las fotos que ocupe en mi LO son de mi esposo “modelando” su traje nuevo. El titulo que puse es “Nace una estrella” jajá. Mi modeloco! Fue difícil hacer este LO porque quería que fuera mas masculino. No sabia que papeles ocupar porque la mayoría de mis papeles son bien coloridos y con diseños juveniles.  Le agregue unas estrellas de colores para darle un toque alegre, que es el enfoque de mi pagina. Es una sátira a los modelos Calvin Klein!

I finally decided to participate in one of the challenges of ScrapFIT. The requirements were to incorporate stars in your layout.
The pictures I used are of my husband “modeling” his new suit. haha. My supermodel! It was hard to make this LO because I wanted it to be masculine. I had a hard time choosing papers since all my papers are super colorful and joyful. I added some little colorful stars to make it look less serious. I wanted a masculine but fun page, since this is a satire of the Calvin Klein models!
