Take a look at my layout:

24/7 stamp set

I absolutely love how this layout turned out.  I stepped out of my comfort zone for this page.  I wanted to really incorporate a couple of the new stamp sets from this release.

Speech Bubbles

I used Speech Bubbles, 24/7, and More Then Words with the Reflection Scrapbook Collection. They make the page fun yet elegant.

Here’s how to create this page:

  • Using the Memory MISTI, stamp all of sentiments from all three stamp sets.  24/7

Reflection Scrapbook Kit

  • Then cut different pieces of pattern paper from the Reflection Collection Kit.
  • Distress the edges for an added effect.
  • Adhere all of those pieces down using Tombow liquid glue and 3M Foam tape.
  • Add thread on top of the layered panel, in no particular order.  Just make sure the thread can be seen off of the side of the photo.
  • Adhere the photo on top of the layer panel using foam tape.
  • Fussy cut the Speech Bubbles that was stamped earlier and adhere them to the top of the photo using 3M Foam tape.

Altenew July 2017 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello everyone and welcome to Altenew’s July 2017 Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing the all of the new Stamps, Dies and Inks.  If you’ve arrived here from the wonderfully talented Agnieszka Malyszek 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 layout:

Altenew July 2017 blog hop

I truly love how this layout turned out.  I have to admit, when I sat down to create this page, I was clueless as to what I wanted to do.  I knew I wanted to use this photo of my sisters baby bump.  As I moved papers and embellishments around, it all came together.

For this layout, I used three of the new stamp sets, Altenew Baby Balloon, Little One and Extended Family.  I paired them with Altenew Reflection Scrapbook Collection.

Altenew July 2017 blog hop

My baby sister is having a baby and my entire family can not wait for her this little one to arrive. So I decided to dedicate a page to my sister.

To create this page:

  • I cut the white card base to 6 x 8 and rounded the corners using We R Memory Keepers Tab Punch Board.
  • Creating the title was the next step.  Using the Extended Family stamp set to cut out the word niece and adhere it to the title using the Brother ScanNCut.Altenew July 2017 blog hop
  • The onesie from Altenew Little One was a perfect addition to add to this page.
  • I didn’t have the die to cut these out so I used my Brother ScanNCut to cut out the onesies.
  • Spray each of the onesie with Altenew Frosty Pink Spray Ink and dry them.
  • Once they dried, punch a hole at the top and string the silver twine though the holes.
  • Adhere the twine to the back of the white card panel.
  • Adhere the photo onto the white card panel using foam dots.
  • Use Altenew Baby Balloon stamp set and stamp the sentiment at the bottom of the white card panel.Altenew July 2017 blog hop
  • Adhere the card panel onto the pattern paper using foam dots.
  • Cut some of the white flowers that come in the Reflection Scrapbook Collection and place them to the right side of the photo under the white card panel.Altenew July 2017 Blog Hop
  • To add balance to the page, stamp a sentiment from the Baby Balloon stamp set on the main scrapbook page, to the right of the photo.
  • To finish the page off, add enamel dots in random places on the layout.

Nothing to it!! So what do you think? I would love to hear from you.

Altenew Scrapbook Collection Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello everyone and welcome to Altenew’s Scrapbook Collection Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing the amazing Reflection Scrapbook Collection.  If you’ve arrived here from awesome Elsie Robinson’s 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:

reflection scrapbook collection

For this layout, I used the pattern paper from the Reflection Scrapbook Collection to create the circle patten behind my photo.

I used a 2in circle punch to punch out 4 circles out of the different pattern papers that has matching colors in the photo.

Then I trimmed the photo down to fit over the circles without totally covering them.

To add dimension behind the photo, I cut two black and white pieces of the pattern paper and adhered it to the back of the photo.

Once the circles and the photo were adhered down, the page looked to white so I used Altenew Frayed Leaf Ink Spray to add splatters around the focal point of the page.

After the ink dried, I placed the title down using the letter stickers that come in the kit.

To finish the page off, I placed some the the chipboard in the kit on top of the photo and under the title of the page.  Adding the date to the bottom of the page using the rotary stamp which is also included in the Reflection Scrapbook Collection.

Let’s take a closer look:

So what do you think?  Would you use pattern paper to create different shapes to use on your layouts?  I would love to hear what you think below!

Altenew Stencil Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello everyone!!  I’m so excited to be here today.  This is my first Altenew Blog Hop as a design team member!!  Today we are showcasing all of the new stencils that are being released.  If you’ve arrived here from fabulous Lydia Evans, 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 layout:

altenew layered kaleidoscope stencil b

For my layout I used Altenew Layered Kaleidoscope B Stencil  paired with some of the supplies from the Reflection Scrapbook Collection Kit and some Ink Sprays to add interest to my page.

Altenew scrapbook layout

I used the Layered Kaleidoscope B stencil to add texture behind my photo using embossing paste. I took my time to only get the embossing past in the center design of the stencil only.

Note: for those of you who are new to this technique, I would suggest you mask of the areas that you do not want the past to go as to not make a mistake.

applying embossing paste

I did this twice so that the design would peak out from behind the photo.

Note: you could color the embossing paste using Altenew’s inks and/or sprays to really enhance the texture.  Like this:

coloring embossing paste with Altenew ink spray

I choose not to use it the color paste because it was to much yellow on the page but know that this is an option as well.

Let’s take a closer look:

layered scrapbook page using Altenew Reflection Scrapbook kit

For this page, I matted the photo on top of a piece of pattern paper from the Reflection Scrapbook Kit. Then I used the stickers and other embellishments from the kit to add the title and cute saying to the layout.  To finish the layout off, I used Altenew Ink Spray and a paintbrush to add ink splatters throughout the page.

So what do you think?  Will you use stencils on your layouts now?  I would love to hear what you think below!
