I don't always match...

I don’t always match the lampshade but when I do... it’s while crafting on the go at the insanely cute Lone Star Court on their super cool sofa. In addition to this awesome furniture, there’s a SMEG fridge in every room! I recently had the pleasure of visiting Erin Condren's new flagship store so of course I had to bring all of my favorite planner supplies. Since everyone always asks, my dress is from Rent the Runway, which I have been loving as I have had an Unlimited membership for a few months. It's the Rachel Zoe Orange Neda dress and the fit is perfection.

The boots I have been loving lately seem to match everything I have been wearing and they are SO comfortable. I can walk around all day and into the night in them. Also some go-to items to travel with alongside my Planner Pouch which so many of you have already started to receive! Check out all the details of my favorites and what I am wearing here.

Violeta's Love This Moment Layout

Hello! I am Violeta Scrap and I am going to show you a Layout I made with a bunch of elements from the “Hustle & Heart” collection. As they are very colorful, they are perfect for any photograph.

LOVE THIS MOMENT LAYOUT 1.jpg

For this project I have used one of my favourite papers from the collection “Hustle & Heart”. It is the “Oh so lovely” paper. I love the different elements drawn in the paper and the color combinations. Over this paper, I have glued a basic cardstock paper of 9”x11,5”, and then I have added at the bottom part some splashes of colors, with some spray inks, in yellow, orange and blue tones.

I have used a 5”x8” photograph that I have placed in the left top part of the project, and in the bottom part of the project I have put a great amount of elements to decorate this layout.

I have cut different elements from different papers to create the vast decoration of the Project. Some elements that I have cut are from “The Little Things” paper and some others from “Fit to be square! Paper, both from the “Hustle & Heart” collection.

Besides, I have used lots of transparent stickers from the “Hustle & Heart” collection that I have placed under the elements that I have cut from the papers.

For the title of this project I have used some foam words from the Thickers of “Hustle & Heart” collection as they look great with the white alphabet Thickers from the same collection and which with I have used to include the date and the place of the photograph.

Lastly, I have put some enamel dots, a Wood veener sticker in white, gold and black color. Also, there are some glossy puffy stickers in different colors and some museum pins. All of them as decorative elements of the project.

As you can see, you can place lots of elements in a same layout, even if you have a big photograph.

Happy Chinese New Year!

Lunar New Year CA Adventure Pluto

Happy Chinese New Year from our crew and Pluto too ✨❤️  

Macaron

We were invited to check out the Lunar New Year celebrations at California Adventure and we had a wonderful time! Wrote a recap of the fun for Disney Family. Check out the size of that macaron that Jack had! I think it’s so cool to have him experience these things because when I was younger, I didn’t see many opportunities to celebrate my heritage. Even though I was born and raised in a diverse suburb of Chicago and we got red envelopes every year, it’s amazing to see how the traditions are being shared in so many creative ways for everyone to enjoy. 

DIY Valentine's Cards

Fiskars Valentine's Cards | Amy Tangerine

One of my fondest memories of Valentine's Day when I was a kid was exchanging cards with everyone in my class at school. I love encouraging Jack to make cards for all occasions and will have him add his handwriting to the back of these super simple Valentine's Day cards to share with his preschool pals! In collaboration with Fiskars, this DIY can easily be replicated no matter how many friends and family you are sharing the love with.

You will need: white cardstock, several rolls of washi tape (red and gold used here), shipping tags, foam pop dots, pencil, typewriter, stamps, gold ink, red brush marker and scissors. I used both the Fiskars Original orange-handled scissors as well as the Total Control Precision scissors (great for curves and details).

Begin by placing varying patterns of washi tape over the sheet of white cardstock until it is completely covered.

Next, flip the cardstock sheet over and freehand sketch hearts and the letters "X" and "O" with a pencil.

Take your scissors and cut out each of the traced shapes. The non-stick blades make it easy to be precise when cutting through the layers, and the thumb-activated cutting motion maximizes control and limits fatigue.

From there, type out a sweet sentiment like "You are just my type" onto the shipping tags using a typewriter.

Using my cross pattern stamp, add texture to each of the cards by stamping the design a few times using gold ink.

Finally, adhere each of the shapes using the pop dots for dimension to the shipping tags.

Jack can't wait to pass these out to his friends on Valentine's Day!
