Altenew Live Your Dream Scrapbook Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello everyone and welcome to Altenew’s Live Your Dream Scrapbook Collection Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing the new scrapbook collection.  If you arrived here from the talented Nathalie DeSousa blog, then you are on the right track. If you arrived here on your own, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Altenew Scrapbook Blog so that you don’t miss a thing!

Take a look at my DIY Traveler’s Journal Cover:

Live Your Dream Die-Cut Embellishments

Live Your Dream Scrapbook collection is full of fun vibrant colors! I’m tickled pink by these traveler’s journal covers. Super cute and easy to make.

Here’s how I created them:

Cut a sheet of patterned paper to 8 x 5, scored at 3.5, 4 and 4.5.

Live Your Dream patterned paper

Run the patterned paper through a laminator.

Live Your Dream Patterned paper

Choose the die-cut embellishments you wan to use on the front cover and run those through the laminator.

Live Your Dream Die-Cut Embellishments

Trim the laminated sheet and round the corners.

Rescore the score line, so that the plastic will fold nicely.

Use a 1/8 hole punch, punch 3 holes (on the score lines) 1/8 from the bottom and top of the traveler journal cover.

Live Your Dream patterned paper

Measure 2.5 on the middle line and punch a hole.

Live Your Dream patterned paper

Cut a 24 in piece of what elastic cording.

Now its time to string the elastic cord.

Live Your Dream

String the elastic from the front to the back of the cover, leaving a tail to tie at the end. I measured it for the hole its in to the middle hole in the center of the cover.

Now just go up, over and back down.

Now that you gone though each hole, your tails are opposite of each other.

The tail on the right will pass back through the hole below it so that its now on the inside of the cover.

The tail on the left will pass through the hole above it, so that it’s on the inside as well.

Like this.

 

Tie a knot nice and tight. Clip the ends.

Now you have four bands for four books!

Now cut another piece of elastic to 10in and string it though the middle hole from the inside out, to create the band that closes the journal.

Like this.

Now its time to add your books.

Cut out the laminated die-cut embellishments and adhere them to the front of the book.

I added only two books but four fit beautifully.

 

Live Your Dream

I’ll teach you how to make the books soon! Stay tune for those.

Altenew February 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil Release Blog Hop

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone and welcome to Altenew’s February 2019 Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing all of the new stamps, dies, and stencils.  If you arrived here from the talented Seeka blog, then you are on the right track. If you arrived here on your own, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Altenew Card Blog so that you don’t miss a thing!

Take a look at my wooden heart scrapbook panel:

Trendy Circles

I love how this wooden panel turned out. I used Altenew Trendy Circles, Better Together and the roller stamp to decorate this heart.

I created this panel for my daughter because on the day of this photo she was quite upset about her hair. It didn’t turn out how she wanted it and was afraid that her peers would not like it. It looked beautiful to me. She did an amazing job.

So I wanted to capture the moment and remind her that different is beautiful. I do not want her to worry about what others think. If she likes who she is and how she looks, that is all that matters.

Let’s take a closer look:

Trendy Circles

To create this panel randomly stamp the circles from the Trendy Circles stamp set using Stazon Ink onto the wooden panel.

Resize the image and print it in color.

Use We R Memory Keeper 3 Way Corner Punch to round all four corners

Stamp the sentiment from Better Together stamp set onto the image using Stazon Ink.

Better Together

Adhere black thread under the photo and place on the center of the wooden panel.

Stamp a sentiment in the upper right hand corner and the date of the event, using the roller stamp, on the side of the left side of the heart.

Nicely done. Don’t you think?

Let’s take another look:

Altenew January 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello everyone and welcome to Altenew’s January 2019 Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing all of the new stamps, dies, and stencils.  If you arrived here from the talented Rubeena Ianigro blog, then you are on the right track. If you arrived here on your own, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Altenew Card Blog so that you don’t miss a thing!

Take a look at my 4 x 8 scrapbook album:

Mask Stenciling

I returned from Creativation 2019 two days ago and had so much fun seeing all of my crafty friends. It inspired me to create an album dedicated to them.

Here’s how I created this album:

I stenciled a couple of flower stems from Altenew’s Angelique Motifs Mask Stencil with Forest Glades Ink unto a white piece of cardstock.

Then I stamped the sentiment from Altenew Mega Greeting 3 using black ink.

After that I adhered the Simple Friend Die cut right next to the stamped sentiment.

Use We R Memory Keepers Cinch and Rose Gold binding wire to bind the album together.

Friend Die

Super easy and done. Now I can’t wait to fill it with photos.

Here’s another photo using the same stencil:

Altenew Masking Stencil

I facilitated a banner scrapbook make-n-take at Creativation this year at the Altenew booth. It was so cool. Everyone one loved working with the stencils. They saw how easy it was to create a simple but stunning design in under minutes.
