April Fools… We’re Married!

20 years ago today I married the best husband ever! It just goes to show you that I wasn’t a fool in choosing a wonderful husband and father for my children.

20th Anniversary-001

Looking forward to spending many, many, many more years with him! Happy Anniversary to us both!

They’re Engaged!

On Saturday, March 22nd my niece/god-daughter Alexandra (Alex) got engaged! We are all excited and can’t wait (ok, we already started) wedding plans! She is marrying a caring and loving young man that will be a great addition to our family. Welcome Brandon! I made a layout with My Digital Studio including a few of the photos. The pretense was to have a photo shoot for a framed photo for his new office, my very talented niece Michelle from LoveIsMePhotography was on hand to document the event!

When Brandon was four years old he was in a jewelry store with his mother and picked this ring for her, she purchased it and many years later she gave it to him for the love of his life, the rest is history!

She said YES!

Today my family celebrates another engagement, my cousin’s daughter Alexis Daniel just got engaged to Marcus Usery. Congratulations to both of them!

Anniversary

This is the card I made for him, it was part of swaps that I made but of course his was personalized down to the envelope!

And yes, we got married on April Fool’s Day but neither one of us married a fool!

No Frog Kissing Necessary!

They say you have to kiss at least 17 frogs before you find your true prince.  Well with this prince giving free kisses there’s no frog kissing necessary!

Free Kisses-001

My niece Michelle Rosario Ugalde is a very talented photographer and I couldn’t help using her children’s photos for these digital pages. It was so easy with My Digital Studio, just click, drag, type a few words and viola!

Now here’s a girl who obviously will not have to kiss a frog!

Free Kisses-002

Take a look at her website www.loveismephotography.com and  blog www.loveismephotography.wordpress.com to see the beautiful work she does. I will be using more and more of her pictures as inspiration for my digital projects.

Custom Wedding Card…even the Envelope Liner!

My sister attending a wedding this past Sunday and asked me to make a wedding card. I usually like to match my cards to the invitations when possible, here’s the invitation.

Wed Invite

And this is what I came up with.

2013-12-29 13.58.32

Inspired by the invitation colors I used the following card stock colors: Basic Black for the card base, Whisper White to layer and then an embossed piece of Smoky Slate for an elegant look. I tried matching the monogram and ribbon.

I used the same embossing folder (Fancy Fan) for the envelope flap.

2013-12-29 13.55.45

Using My Digital Studio I printed the inside of the card on Whisper White cardstock and then used the largest framelit from the “Labels Collections”. I also made a custom envelope liner with the names of the bride & groom. I printed the liner on regular copy paper because I didn’t want a bulky envelope and then used the large envelope liner framelits for a perfect fit!

How did you celebrate your new year? My immediate family and I choose to stay home and welcome it quietly, this is a big difference from the usual but it was nice. As I checked browsed Facebook and saw how many of my family and friends were celebrating I was happy to see that they were all enjoying themselves!

One of my cousin’s daughter’s even got engaged!

Here’s wishing them lots of love and a beautiful wedding!

Starburst & Spritz

The holiday season is the best time to try fresh and trendy techniques so I decided to try the Starburst Technique not with a holiday theme but a wedding theme. I recently went to (crashed!) the wedding of Kathy and Ryan Swisher and I used a photo taken by their photographer Jess Ryan.

Below is a holiday themed Starburst Technique project along with a instructional video.

Winter Starburst

As you can see from the video it’s an easy technique, try it and send me a picture of your project. I would love to see what you create!
