Altenew December 2017 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello everyone and welcome to Altenew’s December 2017 Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing the all of the new Stamps and Dies.  If you’ve arrived here from the talented Yoonsun Hur 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 Embroidery Loop Layout:

I’m so excited about this type of layout.  I’ve never seen this done before. Totally a brilliant idea.  I saw it on Instagram and had to give it a try. Thank you Lena from @rozalina_s for the idea.

Here’s how I created this Embroidery Hoop Layout:

I used a piece of pattern paper from Altenew Reflection Scrapbook Kit to create the base of the embroidery hoop.

Note: You have to really play with the paper and the hoop because the paper is very thick so it takes time for it to form to the hoop.

Once the paper is secured in the hoop, trim off the excuse edges and fold them back behind the loop.

Stamp the sentiment using Altenew Everything About You stamp set on a piece of what cardstock. Trim and round the edges.

Print and trim the photo to a 3 x 3 size.

Add thread behind the sentiment and the photo. Adhere both of them down using foam tape.

Finish the statement by using Altenew’s Our Family Chipboard Alpha Stickers.

For more texture, add some of the Altenew Our Family Enamel dots.

So very pretty!!

Let’s take another look:

  1. This is a fantastic project and so refreshing! I love that stamp set in the release and you used it in such a fun way. How adorable is your niece!! I can’t get over that smile

  2. Lovely project about your niece, and very educational too. I got several of those “circular shapes with the mini telescope at the top” in a sewing-themed ephemera pack and I had no idea what they were. Now I know they’re embroidery loops. Thank you!
