Family {A NEW Scrapbook Diaries Kit Page & Video Tutorial}


So excited to share with you my latest kit page I designed for The Scrapbook Diaries!! Lately I find myself intrigued by watercolor designs.  When I saw these beautiful Prima flowers that seem to have a pretty watercolor wash to them, I was inspired to create a page using a variety of color washes. I chose some Shimmerz Paints watercolor paints ('Power to the Purple' and 'Ride the Tide' Creameez)....these are activated by adding water and allowing them to sit (stirring often).  Here I used them with lots of water to get a nice wash to my background design.  

The awesome part is that you can make this very same page with all the products I used, including the paints, chipboard, papers flowers....everything! all in a one stop shopping trip to The Scrapbook Diaries! This kit includes all the products I used to make this page PLUS unlimited access to a full step by step video tutorial created by me :)   Here are a few close-ups of the page....


How cute is that delicate little trellis.....Janene (owner of The Scrapbook Diaries) is always finding these unique and hard to find products to add to the kits, she always surprises me with her newest finds!


And how cute are those watercolor blossoms, right?  I'm often asked what inspires my designs....sometimes it's a photo but in this case my whole thought process was developed around these lovely blooms :)


I did a little easy fussy cutting for this one....just some blooms and butterflies, but I find it's little  things like this that can add a lot of impact to a page design. (and YES! the clocks are included in the kit as well!)


Here is a close-up of the intricate little scrolls I used on this page as well....another fun little find by Janene!  I know, I sometimes use a lot of chipboard on my pages, the cool thing is that you can get all these accents for your page as well in this one fun filled kit!


I know there are a lot of you out there that just love adding butterflies to their projects as much as I do, so I had to be sure to add just a couple to this page as well!  

As always Janene also created a gorgeous bonus page to the kit, so your product will take you a long way.  I did use one of my stamp sets on this page that Janene is selling a la carte as this one was already used in a previous kit (this way you are not getting product you may have already purchased...but for those of you that did not get that previous kit, the option is there :)

Seen enough?  Want to give this kit a try for yourself?  Then hop on over to The Scrapbook Diaries to get yours, they do go fast!   I had so much fun creating this page and I think you will enjoy this one too....just the colors make me happy! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today, your lovely comments and feedback always make my day! :)

Sorry it's been so long since I have been by to visit. Absolutely beautiful and inspiring work as usual Gabrielle. This kit is amazing. The colors just make me happy too :) Of course -- you needed a perfect background for that heartmelting photo. Oh ... so sweet. Love all the added touches from the butterflies to the script stamping.
