Zva Creative December Blog Hop!


Happy New Year to you!

ZvaCreative and our talented NEW 2013 Design Team welcome you to our December blog hop where we officially welcome our new team members to our monthly hops! 
We are very excited about this year's team and are sure that you will be inspired by and love their work.
Are you ready to hop along and get to know them better?

Today's Blog Hop begins at Zva Creative's blogBe sure head on over to check it out! You will also find a complete list of all the participating blogs there (in case there is a glitch along the way). 

As you know, Zva offers many beautiful color groupings of pearls, flowers and crystals.  If you like what you see along the hop you can find a list of stores and online retailers that sell Zva HERE.

Im very honored to have my term on Zva DT extended for one more year, it's been a great experience to work with such high quality and cute products :)
If this is your first time visiting here...I'm Fabi Ormerod, brazilian, close to 38 yo (february!), mom of a almost 7 years old boy (this January). My inspiration for scrapbooking comes mostly from the picture and the moment being retreated, but it could also be from a material that Im using, to which I match a picture/story to scrap about.
One of my favorite things is to create little clusters with embellishments using different materials (mixing flowers, blings, chipboard, stamped images, etc).

As it's almost 2013 I have created this layout with hidden journaling reflecting about how was my 2012 and with my next year resolutions. The flowers and blings from Zva created the perfect match to the patterned paper I have chosen and make the pictures stand out.


If you would like to play along with our design team, just follow along the blog path.
I am linking to one of the Zva designers and that designer is linking to the next and so on. Be prepared to beinspired along the way!
The Blog Hop starts today, December 31st and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, January 1st.

Alguns layouts antigos


Bom dia :)

To aqui de férias na praia mas como hoje está chovendo um pouco aproveitei para colocar em dia as visitas aos blogs, rever layouts que ainda nao tinham sido publicados e achei esses 3 aqui.

O de cima eu fiz para a professora do Pedro ano passado, usei mist, tinta e textura - que adoro.

Esse de baixo eu usei máscara da Arte.1 e tentei fazer um lo bem clean, com bastante espaço em branco.


E esse último é o meu favorito dos 3, porque é bem o meu estilo, acho que ficou divertido e com um pouco de cada coisa rsrs. Tem mist, a borda imitando renda feita com carimbo da Arte.1 com tinta, papéis fofos da Goodies e retalhos da Crate Paper.


Beijocas e uma boa semana para todas que passam por aqui!
Obrigada pela visitinha ;)

English version:

Hi girls,

Im on vacation as scrapbooking a lot latelly. As many of those layouts cant be shared due to publication at SNR magazine, Im sharing today some projects that were inedit here.
Hope you like them!
Thanks for checking :)
Cheers

Layouts, Desafios e Viagem :)


Oi meninas,

Tudo bem por aí? Aqui tudo susse...estou de férias, eeeeeee :)
Passamos uma semana agora no Rio Quente e chegamos ontem a noite. Foi uma delícia.
Só tinhamos que ficar na água direto, porque eita lugar quente viu? rsrs.
Acima uma fotinho minha com o Pepe na praia do Cerrado e abaixo eu curtindo um chuveiro de água dentro da piscina.


Hoje eu estava morrendo de vontade de fazer scrap e aproveitar meu canto recém organizado (isso que ainda nao acabou hein?). Aproveitei para fazer 2 layouts, para 2 desafios diferentes, do Scrap Playground (quanto mais melhor) e do sketch do Scrap pelo Brasil.

Aqui o meu lo para o SPB. Vou ter que trocar todas as fotos durante a semana porque o tempo nublado de hoje está judiando, as fotos ficam muito ruins, mesmo trabalhando elas no editor :/
MASSS...acho que dá para vocês terem uma idéia do layout. Escolhi uma foto minha com a Le e a Cinthia, minhas BFF nesse scrap world, amigas incríveis.



Nesse layout trabalhei somente com papéis da Prima. Os cristais mara sao da Zva Creative, claro...
e os carimbos de instagram e bandeirinha sao da Carol/Sweet Stamp.
Os carimbos imitando splash de tintas sao de uma marca chamada Swiss Girls Stamps. A dona é a Rahel, que está no DT da Crate. Adoro os trabalhos dela.



O outro desafio é o do Play e era "quanto mais melhor". A gente tem que escolher um elemento e repetir várias vezes no layout. Nem precisa pensar muito para saber o que escolhi haahahhahaha. Minhas amadas corujas!


Também vou ter que trocar a foto durante a semana por causa desse tempinho feio :/
Mas uns closes ajudam a ver como ele ficou...Corujas para todo lado. De papel, chip, tecido/feltro e carimbadas.

 Os cristais e pérolas sao da Zva Creative também.

Voltei inspirada hahahahaha!
Obrigada por passarem por aqui e fiquem de olho pois logo tem novidades na área.
O meu desafio para 2013 com um blog a parte...o No Money 4 Scrap.
E claro, vai rolar sorteio e muita coisa boa por lá :))))

Beijocas para todas!

English version

Hey girls! How you're doing? Hope everyone is doing fine.
Above I share some layouts I've done this week and most of them features Zva Creative products: great blings and pearls!
The pictures from me and my son are from the vacation our family took last week to a water resort...was sooo much fun!
Hope you also enjoy you year's end :)
Cheers

Alguns trabalhos


Oi meninas,

Tudo bem?O blog andou meio parado né? Andei produzindo muito para revista então muita coisa não pode ser publicada até 30 dias depois de sair na SNR, por isso o sumiço por aqui rs.

Acima um layout que amei fazer, inspirada pela Finnabair (e longe para caramba do trabalho dela hahaha), especialmente desenvolvido para uma aula aqui em casa para Mi e para Ana Paula.

Abaixo um cartão feito para a Zva Creative, destacando os blings/brilhos lindos que eles tem.

Para comprar os produtos da Zva você pode ir direto no site deles, eles vendem sem ser para loja (mais são pacotes com o mesmo produto) uma boa idéia para crops por exemplo.



Beijocas para todas e obrigada pelos comentários e carinho!

Oi meninas,

Hoje venho com um post longo hehehe...

Pela primeira vez participo de um desafio de cartões. Vi o post no blog da Pati Dias e me inspirei para participar do ACC. Acima a minha participação com um cartão no tema de viagens.

Aproveitei e já fiz um cartão para uma amiga que faz aniversário essa semana :) (abaixo)


E passamos uns dias de férias agora no interior de São Paulo, em um resort de águas, curtindo o calorzão que não deu tregua...estava muito bom.
Algumas fotinhas novas para futuros layouts!



Beijocas e boa semana para todas!

This week we went to a resort to enjoy the weather, Francis and I took a small vacation with some of our relatives and our kids.
I also made some cards for a blog challenge and for a friends bday (above).
Hope you all have a great week!
Thanks for stopping by!

Recent layouts ;)


Oi meninas, tudo bem com todo mundo?
Semana passada rendeu e fiz 7 layouts, 3 cartões e 2 ATC´s kkkkkk...mas não posso mostrar tudo porque tem coisas para a revista.

Esse layout eu fiz por prazer mesmo, usando a paleta de cores do The Color Room 125, com tons de marrom, azul e verde, adorei o resultado. Eu nunca participava de lá mas estou gostando muito da inspiração através das cores.
Aqui um close...

Hey all, hope you´re doing fine. Above layout (and the close up below) was done inspired by The Color Room pallete, I was not participating much but now Im in love with the inspiration through colors.
                 
 E aqui mais um layout feito só por diversão...usando vários retalhos antigos. O toque extra ficou pela flor sanfonada, adoro :)

And here another layout done last week, the final touch is the flower made with folded paper :)


E aqui mais uma tentativa inspirada pela Finnabair, amo o trabalho dela, mas confesso que nâo estava achando o jeito certo de fazer a textura. A Renata Pacheco me deu a dica semana passada...é tinta! rs
Acho que agora esta ficando melhorzinho...aqui um sneak, esse é para revista então não posso mostrar.

And here one more try inspired by the wonderful Finnabair...I was not making the texture and couldnt find out how, but my friend Renata Pacheco gave great tips last week...so here a sneak.


Um ótimo restinho de semana para vocês...amanhã tem aula aqui em casa do mini Life, cheio de detalhes by Arte.1...Adoro!

Kisses for you all!/ Beijo grande ;)

Featured at The Color Room and Top Designer at Yummys ;)


Oi meninas,

Nossa, essa semana estou surpresa! Que alegria...dois destaques!
Um no Yummys...estou no Top Designer 41, escolhida pela queridíssima Maísa Mendonça que adoro...aqui os comentários da Maísa, que escolheu meu layout acima:

This week came with great news, I was featured in two places! One at our local forum, Yummys where I had the layout above choosen among other favorites for the Top Designer week 41, choosen by Maisa Mendonça.

"Escolha de: Maísa Mendonça


Designer: Fabi Ormerod

Título:Sleeping beauty

Comentário: Amei o colorido da página! A moldura de polaroid deixou a página bem equilibrada, trazendo o foco para a foto, mesmo a Fabi tendo usada elementos e papéis bem coloridos!

Parabéns Fabi! Ficou lindíssima! bjo"

E essa semana resolvi participar pela primeira vez na vida do The Color Room, na paleta 123...adivinhem o que aconteceu, ontem abro meus emails e leio isso: (quase tive um troço hahaahah não acreditei):   And this week I tried to participate of The Color Room for the first time and what a surprise, my layout was choosen and feature! I almost didnt believed when I read in the newsletter!
"This week we have some wonderful pages very deserving of being featured...

click on the above links to leave these girls some praise!!!!

Fabi Ormerod - Simple yet striking! - Pois é, sou euzinha mesmo hahahahahahah

Pascale Bernard - Tried her hand at one of Janines tutorials....Stunning result!

Catarina Mazzurana Monguilhot- Another simple one yet striking page!

Pati - Love the orientation and different size to this page.

Michelle - LOVE this page, fantastic use of the palette!.

Go see features on the Photo Wall or to their pages to leave these girls some praise!!!!"   O layout é esse daqui...eu estava fazendo um novo e resolvi postar esse daqui, que eu tinha nos meus álbuns e elas gostaram ;)  

Um ótimo final de semana para todas! A great weekend to you all!

Beijos/ Kisses!

Amo muito tudo isso!/I love this all so much!


Oi meninas,

E aí, todo mundo curtindo o solzinho delicioso que anda fazendo estes dias? Eu estou amando...e com o sol tudo fica melhor, parece até que o humor da gente melhora, a inspiração vem, rs.
Eu estu na fase de usar todos os retalhos por aqui para abrir mais espaço e também economizar. Uma das minhas formas preferidas de usar retalhos é fazendo minis, acho que rende muito!
Nesse final de semana (ontem) fiz esse mini que estava encantando. Era para ser uma aula na Carol mas quando meu secador de emboss queimou perdi os prazos, agora graças a Rosana Pedrão e um secador emprestado, o mini saiu rs.
Na capa de pet clear da Arte.1 eu fiz um fundo usando textura da True Colors e máscara da Arte.1 (amo!). Depois de secar com o secador de emboss com cuidado (para não derreter o pet...), passei 2 tons de spray/mist e sequei novamente. Apliquei ums blings da Zva Creative e finalizei com o título da Arte.1 e umas carimbadas com stazon para dar um charme.
Nesse close dá para perceber melhor a textura. (On this close you can see how Ive created a nice texture on this clear mini album front page. Ive misted over the texture to add some color too!)



E dentro do mini vamos aproveitar os retalhos! Eu fiz um mini usando várias fotos que tirei com o Instagram esse ano...fotos do meu dia a dia mesmo, por isso o título do mini foi Life. O mini fala sobre fazer scrap, viajar, meu amor pela família, amigos, o ano que a UpStyle começou e algumas outras coisas legais.
(Iam trying to use all my paper scraps in order to make a better use of my stash, and to do such I love to make mini albuns. So Ive made this one about some of my faves things about my life and used some of this year Instagram pictures. An easy way to make a quick mini album saving some money!)




O mini ficou com várias páginas internas duplas então está bem recheadinho, coloquei acima só alguns sneaks para dar uma idéia de alguns detalhes que usei, fitas, carimbadas e retalhos de papel.

Outra forma de usar retalhos que gosto bastante é aproveitar com os furadores para fazer formar e enfeitar o layout. Esse layout abaixo é inspirado em um layout que vi no site da Maisa Mendonça, scrapper que admiro muito, ela fez um layout masculino que tinha muitas formas redondas. Eu fiz a mão um sketch das formas principais e alterei outras coisas para dar a minha cara ao layout (como as bandeirinhas, uso da fita e do bling).

Usei os retalhos para furar os vários círculos e como no layout da Maisa, dividi os círculos ao meio para criar uma borda para a foto, achei que ficou bem legal. Usei os outros círculos distribuidos pelo layout e mais retalhos para fazer as bandeirinhas. Para finalizar carimbadas (sempre né? rs) e as bandeirinhas que tanto gosto usando fita banana para dar volume na camada de cima delas.(dá para ver melhor no detalhe).

On this layout below you can see another way to make a goos use of paper scraps: take your punches and make several shapes than use them to create borders and/or to embellish your page. This page I have made inspired in a layout made by Maisa Mendonça whese she uses several circles. I hand draw a sketch of her layout to lift it but then added my own touches like washi tape, blings, etc.


Cansaram??? Esse post está grande não é? Tem mais...

Vou deixar então para o próximo e aqui ficam 2 sneaks de um layout que adorei fazer...novamente usando retalhos e cheio de pequenos detalhes, que adoro.
Id leave you all today with 2 sneaks of another layout Ive did lately...with close ups of some details (i love how the details can make a difference in a layout!)



Uma boa semana para todas!/Wishing you all a great week ;)

I am linking the last stop of our blog hop, so you can go to Zva main blog from here to start... and from there to one of the Zva designers and that designer is linking to the next and so on.
Be prepared to be inspired along the way!
Hidden on FIVE of the designer's blogs is a Zva Creative prize package!
Winners will be randomly chosen after the hop is over, so it's important to leave a comment on as many blogs as you can along the way.
The Blog Hop starts today, July 30th and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, July 31st.  The 5 winners will be announced on Wednesday, August 1st on Zva Creative's blog.
We will do our best to notify each winner, but it's best if you can pop in to Zva's blog on Wednesday. 
All you need to do is leave a comment on this Blog Hop post... you do not need to leave a comment on each and every designer's blog post to qualify.
However, the more times you comment along the blog hop path, the more chances you will have to win.
We also thought it would be more fun to add even more chances to win our blog hop prize!  To increase your chances of winning:
* Comment to let us know that you posted on your Facebook page about our hop (link to any of the blog hop posts)*
Comment to let us know that you "tweeted" about our hop (link to any of the blog hop posts)
* Comment to let us know that you asked your local store to carry Zva creative products.  If they already do, that's fantastic, maybe you can suggest other products that they don't carry.
*Hop over to Zva's blog and leave a comment there to tell us that you made it there! 
The blog hop begins at Zva Creative's blog.
Your next stop is at Zva Creative blog!
Enjoy! Thank you for joining us!
P.S. Mark your calendar to join us again on August 31st for our next Zva blog hop!

Um layout especial/A special layout


Oi meninas,

Durante as férias aproveitei para relaxar e colocar o scrap em dia...também, com o frio que fez aqui, só mesmo fazendo scrap e ficando em casa rsrs.
Eu estava com essa foto da Jujuba (minha sobrinha) para fazer um lo e ainda não tinha batido a inspiração e nessa de usar os papéis antigos um dia ela veio. Combinei esses papéis de cores alegrinhas, furei umas flores de base para as rosinhas da Zva creative e o layout saiu.
Dei alguams carimbaradas de flores para completar e terminei com uns doodles de cristal da Zva, que adoro!
E aí, gostaram? é um layout simples de fazer, mas cheio de carinho e amor pela minha pequena :)

Beijos e um ótimo domingo para vocês!

English short version

As Im on vacation, I've been scrapbooking a lot and using all my old stach. So Ive choosen two bright color papers and also punched some flowers to be used as base for my Zva little roses (I love!) to make this layout for my little niece.
Ive finished with some flower stamps and also embellished with this awsome green Zva flourish.

Kisses to you all and tks for stopping by!

Férias e Layouts!/Vacation & Layouts


Oi meninas,

Tudo bem? Muito frio pelas terras de vocês? Aqui em Curitiba a gente tá congelando, nossa...
Eu estou de férias, pós lua de mel (pois é gente, casei dia 30!!!! estou muito feliz!), uma beleza.
Muito scrap e cobertas hahahaha.
O layout acima fiz inspirada no desafio lá do Yummys, tinha que usar papel de seda. Vocês vão ver que to colocando os papéis velhos fora da gaveta, dá-lhe recortar coleção antiga, vamos renovar rsrsrs.
O layout abaixo é bem a minha cara, cheio de carimbos, tintas e texturas. Fiz o fundo usando a máscara de engrenagens da Arte.1 - adoro! Adorei o efeito final. O fundo foi todo recoberto com tons diferentes dos inkpads da Ranger/Tim Holtz, usei o jogo de 3 que saiu no Natal, as cores exclusivas estavam lindas.


E aqui 2 sneaks de uma aulinha que estou dando aqui em casa essa semana...um layout cheio de camadas, carimbos, doodles, máscaras e misting.



E vocês, muito scrap nessas férias de julho?
Beijocas para todas!
