Altenew January 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello everyone and welcome to Altenew’s January 2019 Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing all of the new stamps, dies, and stencils.  If you arrived here from the talented Rubeena Ianigro 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 4 x 8 scrapbook album:

Mask Stenciling

I returned from Creativation 2019 two days ago and had so much fun seeing all of my crafty friends. It inspired me to create an album dedicated to them.

Here’s how I created this album:

I stenciled a couple of flower stems from Altenew’s Angelique Motifs Mask Stencil with Forest Glades Ink unto a white piece of cardstock.

Then I stamped the sentiment from Altenew Mega Greeting 3 using black ink.

After that I adhered the Simple Friend Die cut right next to the stamped sentiment.

Use We R Memory Keepers Cinch and Rose Gold binding wire to bind the album together.

Friend Die

Super easy and done. Now I can’t wait to fill it with photos.

Here’s another photo using the same stencil:

Altenew Masking Stencil

I facilitated a banner scrapbook make-n-take at Creativation this year at the Altenew booth. It was so cool. Everyone one loved working with the stencils. They saw how easy it was to create a simple but stunning design in under minutes.

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

The Ton’s 4th Anniversary Blog Hop – Day 4

Welcome to Day 4 of The Ton’s 4th Anniversary blog hop! The Ton is celebrating 4 years this month and Effie has introduced 9 new designs for this release. There are some free gifts with purchase promotions ongoing. Head over to The Ton Stamps’ blog for more details.

Take a look at my new inspirational notepad:

Hustle and Grind

I totally love, love this stamp set! 2019 is going to be a great year for me and this stamp set called Hustle and Grind is full of amazing sentiments to really get me in gear.

Here’s how I created this notepad:

Use photoshop to create a lined template.

Print out 25 sheets to create a 50 page notepad.

Use We R Memory Keepers Dial Trimmer to perforate each page at the top.

Hustle and Grind

Cut each page in half using the same tool.

Now its time to stamp the sentiments on the top and bottom of each page using the MISTI.

Once that is done, cut and trim a black piece of black cardstock to 5.5 x 9.5, scoring at 8.5 and 8-5/8.

Place the line papers under the folded score lines to line everything up.

Use We R Memory Keepers Power Punch to punch holes through all of the layers.

To really jazz up the notepad, use Dritz jean buttons to secure all of the layers.

Hustle and Grind

Fantastic right!! That is what I said after I finish making it.

Let’s take another look:

Hustle and Grind

I can’t wait to use this notepad at my desk at work. Motivation for me everyday.

So what do you think? Another great release and Happy 4th Anniversary on January 15!

Prize:

There are also giveaways everyday on these mini hops! Win a stamp of choice from The Ton’s new release. To enter, leave a comment on each blog each day. Effie will choose one winner per day (4 winners total) and announce the winners on The Ton’s blog by January 12. The comment period for these giveaways will close on January 11 at 7pm EST.

We R Memory Keepers Mini Evolution Advanced Kit

Second Post for Today
If your looking for the Altenew post, click here

Hello everyone!!  I’m so super excited to be here today. I get to share some We R Memory Keepers goodies that will live on HSN, January 8th, 2019!! That’s in 4 days. Are you ready to see what they have in store for you?

Let’s take a look:

Yes, look at that mini die cutting tool! Super cute and compact. I love the suction cup on the bottom. It allows the evolution to stay put while running the different plates through.

Wait, this new release doesn’t just come with the mini evolution. It comes with some awesome accessories (embossing + dies sets, embossing folders, storage, label tape, mini precision press).

Here’s what you can do with this new system:

Let’s beginning with stamping. Using the mini precision press, stamp the images onto a piece of cardstock.

Mini Evolution Advanced Kit

The stamps come with ridges that line up with the pegs on the base for perfect stamping.

Mini Precision Press

Ink the stamp, slide the top of the press onto the pegs and press.

Mini Evolution Advanced Kit

These stamps are design to add different text in the middle of the sentiment below.

This allow you to use multiple colors at once.

Mini Evolution Advanced Kit

Once your done stamping, slide the cardstock into the matching embossing and die cut folder. Run it though the mini evolution to see the effects.

Emboss and die cut all at one. Now that’s a function I can live with!

Mini Evolution Advanced Kit

Now let’s take a look at some projects:

The you and me card was created the same way as the tag above.

The Winter Wonderland is my favorite. I used an embossing folder and label tape to create the sentiment that is raised and distressed.

 

Mini Evolution Advanced Kit

To create that look, simply match the label size with the size on the left hand side of the embossing folder.

Mini Evolution Advanced Kit

Run it though the mini evolution and watch the tape transform.

Mini Evolution Advanced Kit

Yes, amazing!! If you do not have a hand labeler, you do not need one now! You can create the same effect.

Here’s a closer look:

Great cards and oh so fun to create.

So what do you think? Are you going to pick up your own set of We R Memory Keepers goodies on HSN on January 8th? Let me know.

Thank you so much,
