Altenew August 2017 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello everyone and welcome to Altenew’s August 2017 Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing the all of the new Stamps, Dies and Inks.  If you’ve arrived here from the talented Svitlana Shayevich 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 layout:

24/7 stamp set

I absolutely love how this layout turned out.  I stepped out of my comfort zone for this page.  I wanted to really incorporate a couple of the new stamp sets from this release.

Speech Bubbles

I used Speech Bubbles, 24/7, and More Then Words with the Reflection Scrapbook Collection. They make the page fun yet elegant.

Here’s how to create this page:

  • Using the Memory MISTI, stamp all of sentiments from all three stamp sets.  24/7

Reflection Scrapbook Kit

  • Then cut different pieces of pattern paper from the Reflection Collection Kit.
  • Distress the edges for an added effect.
  • Adhere all of those pieces down using Tombow liquid glue and 3M Foam tape.
  • Add thread on top of the layered panel, in no particular order.  Just make sure the thread can be seen off of the side of the photo.
  • Adhere the photo on top of the layer panel using foam tape.
  • Fussy cut the Speech Bubbles that was stamped earlier and adhere them to the top of the photo using 3M Foam tape.

  1. Very nice layout. I must admit that the green striped background paper really caught my eye! But all the texture you added drew me in even more.

  2. Kymona I love the water color effect that’s you created with the paper. The speech bubbles are a cute but simple addition to the layout.

  3. What a most fabulous page!! Love the green striped paper as the background. All the other little elements help to accent the photo a give a nice finishing touch!
