NEW Page Kit & Video Tutorial {The Scrapbook Diaries}

Hello friends! I have a new page kit to share with you that is filled with lotsa fun chipboard and some unique and beautiful embellishments.  And as always you get a unlimited access to a private video tutorial on how to make this page when you order from The Scrapbook Diaries!

There is an amazing set of chipboard designs included in this kit, I think all these circles and cogs allow for a variety of designs, here I used it like a spray across the page....I love these combo packs because they allow for a maximum variety of chipboard designs for a minimum price!  Also included are those lovely title chippies, I really love the font used on these.

I began the design by relaxing and (watching TV) while cutting out a bunch of these cute little butterflies from a lovely contact sheet by LemonCraft.

And I combined the butterflies with these cute adhesive buttons by LemonCraft.  The chickenwire is this cool set of stickers by 7 Gypsies.  I just randomly cut the sticker to suit my design.

I had been saving this stunning packet of verdigris metal leaves by Prima for just the right kit and here I finally found it!  Aren't these embellishments beautiful?  ...of course Janene had stock-piled enough of them so that I could create a kit with them.

And as always I love to add in some cool mixed media products, here I used a Tim Holtz paint called Sea Glass and some of my favorite Prills pebbles as well....all of course are included in the kit.

The beauty of this kit is it works equally well for a girlish page or a masculine page....and the title allows for so many photos.  Janene includes enough product to make bonus pages and you can see a sample she made at The Scrapbook Diaries website.  

Some of these kits are limited because of some of the unique products I use on the page such as the metal verdigris leaves, so if this one appeals to you, head on over to the Scrapbook Diaries before she runs out!  You can order you kit HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today, I always appreciate your kind words and feedback! xo

NEW! Travel Journal Mixed Media Video Tutorial {TCW Stencils}

Hello friends! I'm back with a NEW video tutorial....well, sort of, LOL, I made this travel journal last year using some fun stencils I designed for The Crafter's Workshop (TCW).  I had said I would come out with a video tutorial for it but took forever to get it done.  My only explanation is that it's been one crazy busy and hectic year.  Along with my oldest daughter getting married, I also have been dealing with some health issues.  I have AFIB (Atrial Fibrillation) and recently has been getting worse and worse.  I'm under a cardiologists care now (after having had to undergo cardioversion twice! to bring my heart back to a normal sinus rhythm), so hopefully I will get things sorted out and get back to normal living again!

I used 3 stencils that I designed for The Crafter's Workshop last summer.  Many of you may already have these, I know I've seen a lot of beautiful work by you all using these over the past few months.  But here is a little project I made using them.  Time to grab your cuppa and relax for a few minutes and enjoy a little creative time.....

Hope you enjoyed watching this video tutorial! I had so much fun making this one and it really was quite quick and easy to do!  Here are some close-up pics of the front and back of this journal....

This is a head on view of the journal.  I bought my base for this at our local dollar store, I always keep a lookout for fun things to make-over using mixed media products and this one is inexpensive and works beautifully for my purposes.

I kept the centerpiece very simple for this one...I only used a couple of chipboard cogs by Dusty Attic and a square piece of chipboard (I think it was an inside throw-away piece from a window) and used the stencils to get creative.

This is a pic of the front and backside of the journal.  Although I made a full tutorial, you can of course create the background using your own creative style.

As I'm sharing this video tutorial (finally!)....I have some NEW news!  I have designed 4 new stencils for The Crafters Workshop which are being released this weekend at the Creativation show in Arizona!  Here is a little peek at the new stencils....Hope you like!!

I hope to have some fun new video tutorials for you soon using these fun new beauties!  Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today and for all the lovely and kind words of support you guys are always leaving me, they are much appreciated! xo
