My Creative Scrapbook work & VIDEO Tutorial with the September Limited Edition kit

Hello everyone!  I hope all of you are good. It is a long time since my last post here, I had a surgery in my right hand to remove an infection from my index finger but I'm recovering well better than the Doctor expected  then suddenly my fur baby collapsed and long story-short I had to let him go...so have been hard weeks for me, he has been my shadow, my buddy my baby for the last 17 years... 

Well life goes...so today I share with you two of my projects with the Gorgeous September Limited Edition kit by My Creative Scrapbook featuring: Rosi Belle collection by Prima Marketing... chipboards, flowers, sequins, etc.., Gold mist by Heidi Swap, trims , alphas and more...

Last August I was teaching at the 2nda Convencion Latinoamericana de Scrapbook en Pereira, Colombia. I will show you more photos of the event in a future post but I chose this one to create my page, first because I'm with two lovely ladies Noris (my dear friend) and the sweet Joanna  who I met this year in the event.  I made a video tutorial of all the process that I hope you like it.
This kit is so gorgeous!!! it comes with a 12 x 12 paper pad, yes, its true a full paper pad of the Rossi Belle collection and many products to play with...!

I took one of the sticker from the paper pad as my title.

..lot of fussy cutting from one of the papers.

I combined the chipboard, fussy cutting pieces and the different flowers from the kit to make the clusters around the "V' shape design.

I painted the twine, the cheesecloth and added splatters  with the gold mist from the kit.


You can watch all the process in the video, if you like it don't forget to thumb up and share with your friends! ;)

  


"LOVE" 
For my second project, I selected two different papers one solid paper color as my base and the other one to enhance the draped opening in both sides of the base paper . Then I gave textures with a previous kit stencil and modeling paste. I placed the trim pearls from the kit around my photo. Let's take a look to all the details..

Hello everyone!  Today I share with you one of the projects that I made for the Bo Bunny 2nd Round audition. They sent me a box with the Take a Hike collection and many awesome products. I couldn't resist and made two projects and two video tutorial but today I share the first one, take a look..

My son Xander went to the Blowing Rock Mountain here in NC and these photos go perfect for this collection. I selected the Nature paper from the Take a Hike collection as my base paper that I prime with the Bo Bunny gesso.
One thing that I loved is the stickable stencils, it was so easy to work with. Adding gesso to the cloud stickable stencil gave me these beautiful textured clouds.
You will see all the creative process in the video tutorial.

The title is one of the Noteworthy Journaling cards.

I added buttons, chipboards and brads from the same collection.

I mixed the chipboard with the cardstock stickers. I create some pearl drops using the Pearlescent Dimensional Paint by Bo Bunny.

Bo Bunny Supplies list:
Pattern Paper-Take a Hike collection: Nature paper
6 x 6 Paper Pad: Nature, Happy Trails papers
