Our Family ~The Scrap Cake~

Hi there!
Today I have a project to share with you and some exciting news for the Dutch ladies and gentlemen :-)
But first things first....
I created this altered frame for The Scrap Cake using one of their NEWEST paper collections "The Bright Side of Life" designed by so talented Karola Witczak. If you want to see this so beautiful, romantic and lovable collection please have a look -------> HERE

I first pained the frame with blue paint. When it was dry I applied a layer of Crackle Medium. When everything was dry I applied my last layer of paint - the yellow one.
Then I stamped all over it and I used sand paper to distress it a little bit.

N.B. I used ONLY the paper pad from the collection which is size 6" x"6. It was the perfect size for my project.....

The title "Our Family" comes from "Imaginarium Designs" - this is a chipboard company. They produce big range of chipboards and I just love the quality of their products. Thank you, Nat and Jane :-)

And now the NEWS I wanted to share with you :-)
I`m more than HAPPY and SUPER EXCITED to announce that The Scrap Cake products are AVAILABLE to buy in The Netherlands....YAY. I`m on top of the world that my favorite shop in The Netherlands SCRAPDELIGHT sells the newest lines - " The Bright side of Life" and "Summer at the seaside". You can see all the paper ---------> HERE. And please hurry up `cause before you know everything is sold out and as we say in Dutch OP=OP ;-))))
If you have the time please visit their blog ------> HERE. You can find lots of inspiration, videos and the latest news :-)

I hope you enjoyed my post today!
Wishing you a great day!
