Hi everyone, Gabriela here today with a mini album from Want2Scrap featuring a beautiful new collection from Quick Quotes called Winter Bliss. First, these papers are gorgeous and fun. The colors are great for a winter theme, but I'm sure you will find reasons to use them all year long.

This mini album is shaped like a camera, so I had some fun turning the cover into a shaker window that looks like a real camera, check out the video below.

I also used my Xyron Creative Station to make the adhering the paper easier and neater, this was a fun album to make and I hope it gives you some ideas for a mini of your own.  Thanks for stopping by.

Hi everyone, Gabriela here today and I finally made a page I've been thinking about for a while. I thought it would be fun to make a page with a shaker window, so I tried it out. I used a chipboard cutout from Want2Scrap along with some of their bling and of course paper and ink from Quick Quotes. I scrapped a picture of my husband and I on vacation in New Orleans a few years ago, it's one of my favorite pictures of us and it seemed like a good fit for this page.

Shell-Ebrate with Mermaids

Hi everyone, Gabriela here today with a card I made using the Anchors Aweigh Collection and a stamp I really love. I decided to make a mermaid themed card using the shell pattern from the Anchors Aweigh papers. I started with my stamp and then colored it in using my Copics.

Then I traced, colored and cut out my shell.

Then I used some of my chalking inks and a blender pen to color the top inside of the card.

I decided that I wanted to make the card a pop-up, so I attached some paper to both sides of the "shell" and attached the mermaid.

I added some glitter with my Wink of Stella pen in Clear.

Then I added some iridescent bubbles and did a little more blending on the inside.

Here is the final product.

I had a blast making this card and getting into this month's challenge! I hope you all do too!

Hi there everyone! Today I'm doing a review of the combo Creative Station from Xyron.  I've had my original 5" Creative Station for a while now and I was waiting to get this amazing combo and the chance finally came around to get a great deal  on a bundle. Check out the video below:


It was super easy to use and I love the convenience of using both cartridge sizes. Until next time, happy crafting!
