Altenew 5th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 1 + Giveaway


Hello everyone and welcome to Altenew 5th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 1!! Today we are celebrating Altenew turning 5 years old!!  If you’ve arrived here from Chameleon Art Products 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 Blog so that you don’t miss a thing!

Let’s take a look:

Live Your Dream Die Cut Embellishments

I created this cute photo card. Such a great why to showoff your latest adventure. I saw this idea a couple a month ago on YouTube and knew that I wanted to give it a try.

Let’s take a closer look:

To create the card with the closure, I used We R Memory Keepers Tab Punch Board.

Live Your Dream Die Cut Embellishments

To keep the card closed I used a retired Tombow Hook & Loop Tab. It’s a piece of Velcro, that does not tear the paper.

Live Your Dream Die Cut Embellishments

I used the Live Your Dream Puffy Alphabet Stickers to decorate the die cut embellishment.

For the photo, I created a tag using We R Memory Keepers Tag Punch Board. I used Altenew Gold Washi Tape from the New Day Card Kit to decorate it.

Then I adhered the photo on top and done.

Super quick and easy.

Let’s take another look:

I love how this photo card turned out. Big enough to display a photo and small enough to fit in you pocketbook.

  1. Awesome card Kymona, you always have such great ideas. Thank you for your inspiration and participating in this great Altenew 5th Anniversary party.

  2. Well this is far more fun that my whipping out my phone to show pictures. What a great idea! Once again, your creative brain comes up with delightful projects. Thanks for sharing with us!

  3. What a great way to say, “Thank You”, to a friend for a special day, meal, or gift. Love the idea (and the size!). Thanks for sharing your talent and for the inspiration. Happy Birthday, Altenew!

  4. the photo tag and the pretty blue leaves are so cool. It is so nice to see what everyone is doing with the stamps. Great ideas thanks for sharing!

  5. Love that photo card! Sad that Tombow does not make those paper-safe velcro closures any more! Altenew products are always wonderful, and love how you have used them here! Thanks for the inspiration you provide in all their hops! Love your work!

  6. Love all the details you put into a project – they come together so beautifully and you can tell you put a lot of thought into them. Love the variations in colour and pattern here.

  7. This is a fun and original project ! I like your photo card a lot !
    Thank you for the link to the Youtube video. I think I’ll give it a try. Thanks !
    Spring greetings from Belgium.
