Altenew February 2018 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello everyone and welcome to Altenew’s February 2018 Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing the all of the new Stamps, Dies and Inks.  If you’ve arrived here from the talented Dana Gong 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 Scrapbook Layout:

Crafty Life Stamp set

I’m so excited about this month’s release because of the stamp set called Crafty Life!! It is perfect for my Creativation 2018 photos.  That event is full of classes, crafting and hugs!!  I couldn’t wait to sit down to create this layout when I arrived back in NY.

I took plenty of photos but I couldn’t fit them all on. So I randomly chose after printing them all out.

Here’s how I created this Scrapbook Layout:

I used a piece of patten paper from the Reflection Scrapbook Collection Kit as the base of this layout.

I used Reflection Collection Alphabet Puffy Sticker to create the title.

Puffy Stickers

The next step is the layer different pieces of pattern paper from the Reflections Scrapbook Collection Kit randomly and adhere them down with foam dots.

Create a tag for the side of the photo using We R Memory Keepers Tab Punch and Tab Stickers.  Stamp the sentiment using Altenew Permanent Black Ink and adhere it to the side of the photo

Add thread on top of the stacked pattern paper and adhere the 5×7 photo on top.

Crafty Life Die

Use Altenew Crafty Life Die Set to punch out the stamp banner.

Stamp a couple more sentiment around the photo to balance out the page. Add enamel dots for more texture.

I love it!!

I love seeing some of my crafty friends all in one place!!!

  3. I loved seeing all these photos on your blog, but
    they’re even better on such an awesome layout!
    What fun memories to hold forever.

  4. Such a great layout Kymona. When I have that many pics from an event and I can’t get them all on one page I sometimes have to do a double layout using two pages. You did well getting them all in, it looks so great.

  5. How sweet…wish i could have been there. Im new to this community but so excited to get involved. I loved ur page n layout n pics. Im hoping to make next years.
    Great job! Love it n love this release!

  6. Great layouts with long lasting, cherished, treasured, priceless memories of good times with friends at 2018 Creativation! Woo Hoo! Well Done!

  7. Some day….I would love to go to Creativation…but I suspect it would be way more input than this brain could handle! I love that you honored not only product (I hear there’s tons of new stuff to love) but your friends, which is really what it is all about! Thank you so much for keeping the focus on the “family”!

  8. Looks like you had a lot of fun at Creativation. I wish I could have been there. Thanks for highlighting some of the new stamps.

  9. Perfect stamp set for highlighting your trip to Creativation! A very fun and colorful layout! I love patterned paper and the way you used several different ones really adds interest to your layout!
