A "Thank you" card

I'm not a huge fan of making cards but I have to do a "thank you" one for a scrappy friend. After a while, this is the result. I used scraps from my stash for the background. The lollipop flower is handmade by me combining lace and satin. The brad in the centre is from Kaisercraft. I made also the stick pin and I incorporated in it a butterfly charm. Thanks for reading! :D

Gatefold mini album for a swap

This is the Gatefold mini album I made for Yer (who I met at "the scrapbeach"). She told me she likes pale colours and shabby chic style and I tried to reflect this on the album. It is my first attempt to make a gatefold mini and I can tell you: it's not so easy!! probably because I'm very bad at following directions, always want to try my own thing! lol Anyway, it's a bit thick and bulky but I really hope she likes it.
If you want to see the complete mini, go to my channel "eluniversoencantado" as I posted a video there.

1st Mixed Media Tag

I've been watching RachO113 YT channel for a while now. She always amazed me with her creations and her mixed media projects. I decided to try one on my own and here is the result.
I picked up a piece of cardstock and played with it. I practice the collage technique, glimmer mist painting, distressing, embossing, crackle painting, acrylic painting... lol everything I wanted to try on it! And because I was having so much fun I decided to make my own handmade ribbon flower (I followed the tutorial of Jo (Paperdrama) ) adding some lace, feather and pearl ribbon.
If you want to know more about it, check my video at my youtube channel: "eluniversoencantado". Thanks!
