My Creative Scrapbook January Creations and a VIDEO Tutorial!!!

Hello lovely friends! I wish to you all of you a happy, healthy and creative year! I started the year no the way I liked it, I've been sick in the hospital but I'm home now.  One of my resolutions for this year is to work one month ahead with my DT projects and I began to do it, I was so motivated before everything complicated it. But I'll do again as soon as I feel fine.  There are some of the projects I was doing before..... :(
I'm sharing with you today my projects with the beautiful Limited Edition kit by My Creative Scrapbook featuring Kaisercraft- Tropical Punch collection, Prima Marketing and more...

"DREAM"
My first page is about my lovely niece Camila, I just love this photo ...she looks adorable, she loves the Frozen movie like all the girls these days.
I made a step by step video of this page that you will love seeing, it is at the end of this post and you will see how I made the design and the mix media work.

The kit comes with two Shabby Chic Treasures frames by Inglvild Bolme and three packages of beautiful flowers by Prima.

I made this design using the Calico-stencil from the kit.

My title is one of the watercolor words by Dear Lizzy-American Craft.

You can see the video tutorial of this page at the end of this post....
 "Life is Beautiful"
My second page is about my dear daughter and I, it's a selfie that I took at the end of last year. I was so pale and didn't feel well.
I love pineapples so I cut out some from one of the papers to add it in my flower cluster and behind my photo.   

My title, heart and words are from the sticker sheet. I used the large resin frame and applied a coat of Color Bloom- Gilded color.

I made my background using art basic- gesso-molding paste,stamps,  Color Blooms- Gilded-Sorbet colors by Prima. 

Lot of flowers in this kit....you will love it!


"SMILE"
My last page  is with other "selfie" that hubby took with the kids. I made this page using the sticker page and I cut out some flower to create this design.

I mat the photo with the doily paper from the kit.

Title- watercolor words by Dear Lizzy-AC.
