Welcome June + The Scrapbook Diaries

Happy June Friends!
We are basically half-way through the year! Summer is just beginning here in Southern California, so it's starting to get HOT! Not the best thing for me, but I always look forward to the fun things that happen during Summer. Like the Puerto Rico Scrapbook Event which I will be part of next week! I can't believe it came so soon! I am nervous and excited, and cannot wait to see all my Puerto Rico friends! In other news The Scrapbook Diaries just released their Beauty & Grunge Mega Kit! I have to say I am so honored to be part of this, and honored to be alongside scrapbooking names such as Nadia Cannizzo, Kasia Krzyminska, Gabrielle Pollaco! These amazing artists are some of the best in the industry! 

So we all got to work with one kit, which was amazing and beautifully put together! Check it out:

Here is my take on this kit! First is my kit that I had to work with I created this layout called Magnifique:

I loved working with all the Prima goodies in the kit, combining the Seashore flowers, with some of the Jute flowers from our last release was great, I added some lovely Color Bloom action in Gold Foil as well as a few chippies that were in the kit. The Color Bloom combo created a beautiful patina effect which I truly love, and I show you how to do in the video.

Next, I got to work with Nadia's kit and here is my take on hers:

Lots of lovely embellies, again the attention is drawn to the resin frames which truly get transformed with the color blooms, beautiful Prima flower mix as well as some stencil and modeling paste work with the included stencils. I love the splatters and the touch of orange from the included mini mister color. I have to admit, it was interesting for me to work with pre-selected kits where I couldn't add anything extra. I am so used to creating with as much product as I like. It was definitely a fun challenge and it pushed me creatively.

Well there you have it! If you are interested in picking up this amazing kit please CLICK HERE to visit The Scrapbook Diaries, it is totally worth it, and if you are in the US you get FREE shipping.

  2. Not bad for someone who "hated flowers"!!! :) I don't like flowers myself but I love your layouts!! The balance, color schemes, dimension, black and white makes me feel like I would love to touch it. :)) I enjoyed listening to you very much on the paperclipping roundtable. :) I wS in the plane and I'm sure my neighbor was wondering why I was giggling so often. :)
