I’m so excite to be part of this hop. The new products are absolutely lovely. New embossing powders, clear embossing ink,  and a gorgeous scrapbook collection are being released today!

The Our Family Scrapbook Collection is right on trend with fresh colors, watercolored elements, geometric designs, and florals (of course!). The papers and embellishments have been designed to help you document your precious family memories, but are versatile enough to use on any layout, journal, or card project.

The kit contains:

36 Sheets of 12″x12″ patterned paper (2 of each design)

One 3″x4″ photopolymer stamp set

12 3″x4″ watercolor journaling cards

One 8.5″x11″ sheet of 20 cardstock stickers

One 8.5″x11″ sheet of 15 cardstock die cuts

One 8.5″x11″ sheet of 16 chipboard stickers

Two 6″x12″ sheets of chipboard alphabet stickers

One 5″x6″ sheet of 17 adhesive wood veneers

One 4″x6″ sheet of adhesive enamel dots

One metal die (approx. 3.5″x4.5″)

One roll of washi tape (15mm x 10m)

My layout for today features one of the beautiful watercolor florals included in this amazing kit.

I love fussy-cutting images to give them a new look, and that’s exactly what I did here. I wanted the floral piece to be the focus, so I created two main clusters to fill the the page from top to bottom. I adhered them down with foam dots for extra dimension. The lovely background I used is also part of the new scrapbook kit.

The picture fits right in beetween the clusters. I embellished it with some tags and a die cut from the kit, as well as the gorgeous pink wood grain washi tape that is such a nice addition to this collection.

I finished the layout with chipboard alphabet stickers that I used for my title, some wood veneers, and enamel dots.

I can’t say enough how much I love this collection. It is definitely a must-have. Your next stop is Laurie Schmidlin‘s blog. Don’t forget to comment along for a chance to win.

Thank you for stopping by.
