Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful by Rachelle Sigurdson

Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful by Rachelle Sigurdson (MMK192)

Rachelle Sigurdson has another kit for us!  I must say I am a bit partial to this one as I was VERY honored that she used a photo of my daughter. And you bet this one is hanging proudly in my home for all to see! Before I ramble on, have a look for yourself at Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful….

This Blue Fern Studios paper is one of my all time favorites. It’s just beautiful and soft. We hoarded it here at The Scrapbook Diaries buying up their last packs. Rachelle plays off the rose gold tones and created this spectacular layout filled with trinkets and layers. She achieved this look with the use of one Twinkling H20 watercolor – Amber Bronze. When you purchase the kit you will get 4-pages of directions showing you how she achieves different looks with just the one color and some mediums.  Of course, be sure to read full product description to see what is and is not included in the kit. You can find all details here.

I often get the question “how do you store your pages?”  As I mentioned above this one is hanging in my home. It’s not the only one – I hang most of my layouts these days. With the bulk of some layouts on top of the fact that we sometimes spend a long time making them, why not share them with everyone who comes in to your home? They seem too precious to me to put away in an album but maybe that is just me.

And on that note, I want to show off how Rachelle created the frame for this layout…

Arent I lucky???  It really is nothing short of stunning!!!

Because we were so impressed with his, we decided to do something a little different for us. We are offering an “add-on” package. It’s not really everything you need but it’s some key parts.  The add-on includes the flowers, 2 packs of Ivy Corners and the various beads used on the front.  We do not sell shadow frames because of their size and being they are fragile.  You can pick one up at Amazon or at a local chain craft store easily enough.  We also wanted to keep cost down so we didn’t add the extra chippies and stencil Rachelle used. You can use some left over pieces from the kit or you can skip. You Can find information on the “Add-On” here.

Hope you think as much of this one as I do!  It is certainly a keepsake. Thank you Rachelle!!!!!

I should also take a moment to mention we posted a BUNCH of new Scrapiniec pieces of chipboard. These are gorgeous! The detail and designs for their latest release made me giddy. 🙂  Here’s just a few…

Afren;t they beautiful? These are the white chipboard – delicate but the perfect accent for so many projects.

What’s coming? Hmm.. We have some adorable flair badges from Cut2Luv, brand new ScrapFx pieces and some cool 7Gyspies embellishments.

Next kit – A special treat from Tina Ollett. She made a design team project a while back that she has redone with video instruction for us.
