Altenew Guest Designer: Fabulous Floral Frames Creativity & Process Videos!

Hi Friends! 

Boy oh boy, I am so super excited to announce that I am this month's 
Guest Designer for Altenew! Yayyyy!!!

What a dream come true! 
For my post today, I was very lucky to receive the 

 This kit contains the following items:

Floral Frame Stamp & Die Bundle
Watercolor 36 Pan Set
Permanent Black Crisp Dye Ink
Fenstone Decorative Element - Gold
Exclusive Fabulous Floral Frames Creativity Kit Inspiration Guide

I know, how amazing, right?! So much gorgeous product to create with! 
It's certainly a card maker's dream kit, but I wanted to showcase how perfect this kit is for scrapbook and memory keeping too! 
I have created 2 scrapbook layouts and process videos using the Fabulous Floral Frames Creativity Kit - I hope they'll inspire you! 

First is this super sweet page of my two darlings, aptly titled

"You Amaze Me"

Sigh! So beautiful! 
This kit is nothing short of magic!
Let's take a closer look at my layout.....

Talk about 'Fabulous Florals' - absolutely swoon worthy! 
What a wonderful stamp and die set for documenting your loved ones with! 
I just couldn't resist framing my treasured photograph with those fabulous florals, and I think it really created a beautiful focal point within my layout. 

I hand colored the florals and foliage with the totally amazing Watercolor 36 Pan Set, and was so impressed by the quality and pigment of these paints! I used a combination of Frayed Leaf and Forest Glades for the leaves, Purple Wine for the roses and buds, and the super pretty Sunkissed color for the orchids. Such a bright and beautiful result!
Here's a close up of these pretties framing my photograph....

Just divine! 
For maximum 'wow factor' and to further draw your attention into my photo, I foam mounted the framed photo in the center of my cardstock, and then embellished around it with more of the Floral Frame Stamp in the Permanent Black Crisp Dye Ink. 
*Please note: cardstock, cotton thread and clear gems were additional items from my stash* 

So effective!

You'll also notice that I used the gorgeous florals and foliage to trim the top of my scrapbook page. I foam mounted the florals for a lil extra somethin' and am so happy with how they enhanced the overall design. Really stunning details!

For the base of my layout I just couldn't go past that elegant gold Fenstone Decorative Element! It was the perfect adornment to complete the page with! 

I embellished beneath the Fenstone element with trimmed pieces of the Floral Frames leaves and some cotton thread from my stash. Over the top of the Fenstone, I added a fussy cut orchid and my stamped title. Simple, beautiful creating,  made easy with the Fabulous Floral Frames Creativity Kit! 
You can watch how easy it is to create this layout in my process video here:

My second guest designer project is a very pretty watercolor number called, 
"Beautiful You" 

Oh so pretty!!!
Such a different look to my previous scrapbook page, and yet oh so stunning!
Those Watercolors are really something!
Here's a better view for you....!!!
Floral framed goodness at it's very best here! 

Like my previous layout, I stamped, hand colored and die cut the gorgeous floral and foliage pieces from the Fabulous Floral Stamps & Die Set. I used the same colors for the leaves, but this time I painted the rose & buds with the beautiful Grapevine color, and the orchids were painted with a combination of Caribbean Sky & Deep Iris. Stunning! 

On my white cardstock base, I painted that swirly circular design using the Ocean Waves & Lagoon colors, and added a few painty splatters too! 

This created the perfect base for my darling girl's photo, and gave me all the design guidance I needed to position my florals in the right spot!
I aligned my photo the left of the circle, simply because my daughter is looking across the page and then built the floral and leafy cluster in the 'C' design around her image. 

I used the lovely golden Fentstone decorative piece to enhance and support the photo, and essentially draw more attention to the image. I overlayed (and foam mounted) another of the stamped florals onto the Fenstone element for some added interest and then repeat stamped around the 'C' design. 

For finishing touches, I stamped two of the sentiments from the Floral Stamp Set on a separate piece of white paper, then fussy cut out the larger font words to create my title, 'Beautiful You'. 

A really clever and easy way to maximize your stamps and get them working for your designs! 
See more of how this pretty layout came together in my process video for you here:

I hope my projects have inspired you to get creating with this literally Fabulous kit!
