Altenew December 2018 Marker/Embellishments Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello everyone and welcome to Altenew’s December 2018 Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing all of the new markers and embellishments.  If you arrived here from the talented Gayatri Murali 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 kraft scrapbook:

Super clean and simple kraft scrapbook is perfect for any occasion.

For the front of this scrapbook, I used the Sweet Hearts Adhesive Wood Veneers to create a simple title.

Take a look inside:

This scrapbook was created with several pieces of dessert storm cardstock and bind the book using the We R Memory Keepers Cinch.

I used dessert storm cardstock because its so neutral and matches with any color added to it. This allows the scrapbook to focus on different occasions within the year.

Green Fields Enamel Dots

One the first page, I created a pocket and a tag for my journaling. Its a private message to my niece. I tucked it away, so that others can view the pages but not the message upon opening it.

I decorated these page with the Green Fields Enamel Dots and the Butterfly Acetate Die Cuts.

Butterfly Acetate Die Cuts
I love adding texture behind my photos because it adds depth. Adding the date with the date stamp is a perfect way keep track of when events happen.

What is a blog hop without an amazing gift? Yayyy!!

Clean and Simple Cards using Heffy Doodle Stamps

Hello everyone!! Kymona here with some clean and simple cards using Heffy Doodle Stamps!

For those of you who do not know or haven’t heard of Heffy Doodle let me give you some history!

Heffy Doodle produces high quality, versatile stamps and dies for the crafting world. Lesley Oman, aka Hungry Heffy is the companies creative and energetic founder. Lesley’s husband Craig tried to convince Lesley to turn her doodles into stamps, but she was way to busy making cards to listen. It was July 2017, when Lesley realized her husband had a great idea and hence Heffy Doodle was born!!!

Take a look at some of the goodies you can find in their online shop:

          

      

 

Let’s take a look at my clean and simple cards:

For the first card, I used the Numicon Stencil to create a very colorful background for a unique birthday card.

Stamping the sentiment from the Big Bold Words Stamp Set with Versamark Ink and then embossing it with Silver Embossing Powder packs a powerful punch.

For the second card, I simple die cut both the Hey and Honey die out of glitter paper and adhered it to the card front.

Super simple and easy.

Both cards turned out beautiful! They didn’t require much work either. They can be reproduce over and over in no time.

I hope you check out the other stamps, dies and goodies from Heffy Doodle. Let me know what you think of these clean and simple cards and the products I shared with you today.

365 Days

My favorite stamp set from this months release is this stamp set called 365 Days! This stamp set can be used all year round. On cards, in your planner and scrapbook pages!

Creating this card was easy.

Here’s how:

  1. Cut the desert storm cardstock to 5.50 by 4.25, scored at 4.25.
  2. Randomly stamp the sentiment on the card front using Versamark Ink.
  3. Sprinkle clear embossing powder over the stamped sentiments and heat set it.
  4. Stamp the sentiment again on lime green cardstock using Versafine Ink.
  5. Use a scallop punch to punch the sentiment out.
  6. Adhere the scallop punch cardstock to the front of the card front using foam dots.

Nice and easy!

Altenew Crafty Friends Blog Hop Day 2 + Giveaway

Second Post for today
If your looking for Technique Tuesday Day 2 Release, click here

 

Hello everyone and welcome to Altenew’s Crafty Friends Blog Hop!! Today we are celebrating our unique community by sharing a project inspired by our favorite crafter or an anecdote about our crafting adventures.  If you arrived here from Scrapbook & Cards Today 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 fabric scrapbook:

Reflection Scrapbook Collection

I sooo love this little fabric scrapbook album. I started 20 years ago when my son was born. I stopped after a couple of years and then fell in love with card-making. Recently, I discovered sewing and I can’t stop sewing, LOL!

For this project I decided to combine my love of all things crafty to share with you, my crafty friends!!

Here’s how I created this scrapbook album:

Decide on the fabric and cut two 7in squares. I used Adornit Vintage Polka Dot Yellow fabric.

Decide on the ribbon that would be used to close the album. I used Adornit Brown Polka Dot Ribbon.

You can hand stitch or machine stitch the ribbon to the back of one of the fabric squares.

Cut two 5inch pieces of white cardstock and adhere it the center of the wrong side of the fabric.

Using fabric glue, glue all of the side to the center of the paper.

Do this to both piece of fabric.

Cut two piece of cardstock 5 x 12 and score them 4 and 8 giving you 3 panels. Fold on the score lines and adhere the two pieces together to create an accordion look.

Adhere the back and front of the accordion to the front and back of the fabric pieces to create the album.

It should look like this.

After you assemble the scrapbook, its time to decorate it!

Reflection Scrapbook Collection

Add stickers to each page, leaving space for a photo. The photos can vary in size up to 3.5 x 3.5.

Reflection Scrapbook Collection

Close the book, string the chipboard onto the ribbon and tie a pretty bow.
