Happy Mixed Media Kit by Elena Tretiakova

Elena submitted this layout to me weeks ago and I am so embarrassed to say it has taken me this long to post. It’s beautiful, isn’t it?  Then again I think all of our designers send in beautiful works even when grungy.  Maybe I am prejudice. 🙂

All joking aside, Elena Tretiakova’s latest mixed media kit for The Scrapbook Diaires, Happy (MMK101), is just so sweet and romantic. It’s perfect for photos of those beautiful children (as featured on Elena’s sample), weddings, beach photos, you name it.

The stencil work is among my favorite. Elena uses the Gothic Romance stencil from The Crafters Workshop brilliantly! She makes all the elements work for her layout as she uses the center of a floral element to create the circles. I don’t know how to describe, maybe you just need to watch her online video (which you get access to when you purchase the kit).

Love it? I know I do! I had so much fun with this one. I needed to make a bonus sample fitting and worthy of this layout – hope I did some justice…

When you purchase this kit you get all the materials you need (see product description for complete list). Please note the stamp and stencil are sold separately. We did this since a few of our previous kits have used this same stencil. Always good to maximize and show the value in the products we sell.

Hope you like!

Again. I want to mention our new shipping policy for international orders…

In trying to accommodate our customers and are limited shipping options, we have an update for International Customers…International Shipping –  Click on “Bill Me Actual Shipping Fees“. If interested in just a few stamps or maybe a stencil (very light packages), we can ship internationally for usually $9-12. 1-2 page kits usually ship for $18-24. We ship via USPS mail. Packages under 4 pounds can be sent via first class.

If you know your order is heavy (album kits or a bunch of kits, chose flat rate for $47 – it will be less than actual as these need to be shipped via priority mail). Prices do vary from country to country and depending on exact weight. If you don’t agree to pay the additional shipping invoiced, we’ll cancel the order and refund the original payment. Hope this helps service our customers better.

If choosing “Bill Me Actual Shipping Fees”, we’ll print out your shipping label and then send you a PayPal request for that amount.  Your package will not ship until payment has been made.  With time differences and whatnot, we’ll give you 72-hours to make payment. Failure to pay the shipping costs will result in a cancellation of your order and we’ll refund the original payment.  Many of our products are limited quantities so we want to be fair to all of our customers. Paying the shipping fees in a timely manner will ensure a smoother process.

Thanks for checking in. More coming….
