Let's take a closer look at this mixed media delight!


Ga ga gor-jus!!!
Such a pretty page for my darling girl! 
How divine are those floral decals?! I've backed them onto some white paper & fussy cut them out to adorn my photo with!  
The brand new Rose Petal Washi Tape totally dictated my color scheme & looks amazing partnered with the Fine Frames Diamond Die Set,  and the B-A-F Canterbury Bells Die Set too! 

Please watch how I created this scrapbook page (including that delicious berry background) in my short process video below:

Thanks so much for watching!
I hope you enjoyed my video & have subscribed to my channel to see more Altenew ideas & inspiration!

Here are a few more detailed and close up shots of my project....


Those 'rose petal' colors are just spectacular! 
It's hard to believe that the diamonds are all made from that washi tape set!


Those Fine Frames Diamonds are perfect for creating argyle patterns with! Love how effective they look! 

For the title, I used the fabulous Live Your Dream Puffy Alphabet Stickers. 
These puffy alphas are super glossy and really pop against all those berry hues! 



Amazing products make for amazing crafty projects!
