Hello everyone and welcome to Altenew’s Crafty Friends Blog Hop!! Today we are sharing our love of crafting with friends. If you’ve arrived here from the talented Pretty Pink Posh 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 layout:
The layout above is all about crafting with friends. I use to do lunch Make-n-Take’s with my coworkers and they loved it. We laughed and they learned how to create cards, boxes, ornaments, etc. They really treasured our time together. I love sharing my love of crafting with them.
My duties at worked changed so these lunch Make-n-Take’s dwelled away. Looking back on these photos allow me to be grateful for these moments with my friends.
Here’s how to create this page:
Using the PenBlade 15, cut some of the rose and the leaf so that the photo can rest behind them for dimension.
Then rounded all four corners of each photo. Add some adhesive behind the photo and adhere them to the page behind the cut outs.
After that, cut a small piece of pattern paper. Adhere it to the top left hand corner of the layout by adding tape to the bottom right corner of that piece.
Then pull the top layer corner down about an inch and pin it down by placing a charm and a brad.
To add the title, use the puffy stickers from the Reflection Scrapbook Collection and run the title around the top of the photos.
To finish off the layout, using stamps from Altenew Pattern Play- Circle stamp set, Altenew Happy Holidays stamp set and Altenew Moments in Time stamp set to add a couple of sentiments to the bottom of the layout with the Memory MISTI.
Let’s take another look:

What a beautiful way to commemorate a very special time. I love how you used the patterned paper to your advantage by strategically cutting to create “photo corners”! My favorite idea: the top left corner! So clever. Thank you.

Very nice, creative layout – job well done.
What a lovely layout! I like the way you tucked the pictures in behind the rose and the little corner rolled over and held in place with the cute little brad and charm. Its too bad your lunch time crafting has stopped but at least you have fun memories of good times with some great friends.
Thank you for sharing your lovely work!
Great layout! I love the big flower.

when friends get together to play at a
