Abby's 40th Blog Hop

Welcome to my blog and to the Abby's Over The Hill Blog Hop.

We are celebrating my BFF and comadrita Abby's 40th Birthday.
Hopefully you just arrived from Liz's blog, if not please start at the beginning with Candace.

I created these tags to post on her blog...

Tags | DEE stamps, dies, Stickles and glass beads

This is what they look like on a gift.

 Some of the tags' background were stamped with the Notas a la Antigua stamp (music).
I made lots of them...


...and I created this album ... a labor of love (lots of detail and lots of new techniques for me) so that she can document her oh so super busy December.  If she does not want to document it daily she can at least document special events such as my goddaughter recital, her oldest son's first time playing soccer, her other two son's achievements in sports, traveling to Mexico, Christmas, turning the BIG 40!!!  LOL and/or a scrap event she is holding this month.

Cover | I had already shared on FB | DEE stamps, Mod Podge, dies, Stickles, acrylic paint, washi tape ribbon, Glossy Accents, white glitter paper (some painted in aqua) and the Simple Stories album in aqua and kraft.

 Here you can see all the sparkle

Intro or title page | Vellum with silver stars, silver glitter paper and die.

First Divider | 6 DEE stamp sets, acrylic paints, flexible modeling paste, stencil, color shine, Silhouette files, wooden house, washi tape, stamp roller...
This page looks busy with ballet, sports, baking, home.... but that is exactly her life! busy!

This is the first time I create something with modeling paste/stencil

First Photo Page/Back of First Divider | Paste, acrylic paint, dies; DEE stamps, Copics, glitter pen, PL card stamped (Mi Favorita and Fecha).

First Writing Page | Die, washi tape

Second Divider | DEE stamp, dies, Mod Podge, TH distress inks

I tried to keep everything in the Aqua/Red/White palette, but somehow the distress inks turned greenish after adding the Mod Podge.  

Second Photo Page/Back of second divider | Acrylic paint, dies, MME embellishments, sequins, Glossy Accents.

Second Writing Page | Washi tape and MME embellishments.

Third Divider Page | Several dies, vellum, washi tape.

Third Photo Page/Back of third divider page | Dies, Echo Park embellishments/stickers.

Third Writing Page and Other | Lots of dies, glassine bag, paper clips etc.
I stamped the sentiment with Versamark and heat embossed.  She can use this in on the the protector's 4x4 pockets or adhere it to one of the note pages.

For this section I decided to cut up dies and include bits and pieces so that she can decorate herself.  I wanted to continue adding more stamping but Hey!! she is DEE's owner and she can choose which stamps she uses as she documents her December!

Abby can use the first section to either document December 1-23 or all those eventful moments of her life that include my goddaughter's recital, her son's sports events, all the baking she did and several celebrations/parties she attended.  She can add photo protectors, more writing pages or even additional dividers.
The second section is intended to document Christmas Eve and Christmas day.
The third section I am sure will be filled up to the rim with lots of photos from her birthday celebration and the Scrap event she is holding in Mexico.

Happy Birthday Comadrita!!  Love Ya!!

NEXT is Annie

Blog Hop Lanzamiento Diciembre | DEE

Bienvenidas a el Blog Hop de lanzamiento de Dilo En Español de Diciembre!

Espero estén aquí después de haber visitado a la talentosa Patty, si no y gustan participar, por favor empiecen AQUÍ

Estos son los cinco sets!

Hoy me toco substituir a mi comadrita que se fue de vacaciones a celebrar el día de dar gracias con su familia.
A ella le tocaba compartir algo creado con el lindisimo set de los besitos y yo decidí crear algo fuera de lo común o comúnmente creado con estos sellitos. 
Un layout!
 En cuanto vi los sellos de las bailarinas me acorde que mi comadrita había compartido una foto de mi ahijada en Facebook donde mi ahijada modelaba su vestido de bailarina.  Fue el día que les midieron sus vestiditos.  Pero me acorde que yo o que a mi comadrita le tocaba crear con los sellos de besitos... y de ahí se me vino la idea de crear este layout.
 Trate de utilizar los colores y texturas que el vestidito de mi ahijada lleban como las lentejuelas en color plata, tul (tulle) rojo y los brillantitos.
Los sellos los selle utilizando tinta plateada.  Los colores son medios bandera americana pero el papel azul de fondo to tuve que utilizar porque la alfombra lleva esos colores. :)

Gracias por su visita!  El regalos por dejar comentarios sera un set de estos besitos!

Yo soy la ultima parada.  Lograron visitar a todas mis compañeras?  Si no, aquí les comparto la lista.

pero antes de eso les comparto que en el Jardín De Ideas De Dilo En Español en Facebook  se da comienzo a el reto de diciembre con muchos regalos.  Solo pidan acceso!  El reto es la gama de colores rojo, azul/aqua y blanco. No tiene que ser navideño.  Y altere este álbum de Simple Stories.
Esperen! aun ahi mas!
Durante todo el mes de diciembre se compartiran posts cada y todos los dias con una invitada diferente.  Sí una invitada diferente cada dia durante el mes de dicimebre.  A mi me toca el día 26 que es nada mas y nada menos que el cumpleaños de mi comadrita... no se la pierdan!
