Artist Marker refill

I used the new Alcohol Marker refills to create the background of this circle layout!

Here’s how I created this layout:

Place a piece of Bristol Smooth Cardstock on a craft sheet.

Drop a couple of drops of Altenew Coral Berry, Frosty Pink and Ruby Red from Artist Marker Refill Set A onto the white cardstock.

Once it dries, use a small plate and trace the rim. Cut out the circle.

Adhere the circle to another piece of white cardstock and cut the circle again.

Adhere the photo to the left side, using foam tape.

Use a sewing machine, stitch around the edge of the photo and the edge of the circle.

Artist Marker

Stamp the sentiment using the Altenew Thick and Thin Alpha stamp set.

Thick and Thin Alpha

Handwrite the journaling and add some New Day Card Kit Enamel Dots to finish the page off.

Hello Gorgeous

I love the new Hello Gorgeous stamp set! It is perfect so show others how much you care about them. I also love that we could encourage ourselves with this set too. How many times do we praise ourselves? Almost never. So, I took the time to talk about myself this month.

Decorating this planner page was easy:

  1. Just stamp the sentiments.
  2. Then add the photo.
  3. Add some embellishments.

Nothing to it.

Altenew Watercolor 36 Pan Set Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello everyone and welcome to Altenew’s Watercolor 36 Pan Set Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing Altenew’s Watercolor 36 Pan Set!  If you arrived here from the talented Nicole Picadura 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!

This beautiful set of 36 vibrant watercolor half-pans coordinates perfectly with our line of ink. They are intensely pigmented, fade minimally when drying, and some colors have lovely granulating effects. They are stored in a convenient plastic case, designed with space for your brush (included) and a palette in the lid for mixing. Some of the case lids snap off upon opening and can easily snap back on after you are finished creating so you can store your mixed paints with the rest of the pan colors.

The set contains

  • 36 Artist Grade Watercolor Half-Pans

  • Plastic Case

  • Water Brush

Take a look at my Watercolor Traveler’s Notebook:

Altenew Watercolor Pan

I recently took a vacation with my daughter to Cuba and it was amazing. The country is a must see. Although the infrastructure is on the decline, you can still see the beauty in the country. We had a blast and learned a lot.

I used the watercolor pan to add color to my pages that would match the colors in the photos.

I love how the watercolors mix and move across the paper. The interesting thing is, I used linen paper and it did well with the watercolors.  I was surprised. The colors are vibrant and smooth.

Let’s take a look inside:

Altenew Watercolor Pan Set

The left photo is in Plaza de la Revolucion. The faces on the building are of Che Guevara and Camilo Cienfuegos, who are two important deceased heroes of the Cuban Revolution.

The right photo is of the port of Havana. So pretty!

Taxi anyone!!  LOL, I thought this taxi was the cutest thing ever. Three people in the back and the driver in the front. All aboard.

The photo on the left are locals waiting on the bus to come.

the photo on the right is my daughter walking in town.

Aetenew Watercolor

The photo on the left is a photo of a couple of houses downtown.

The photo on the right is a photo of a women and her children walking down the street.

Altenew Watercolor

Both photos were taken from the sky- Hello Havana!

I used different color watercolors on all of these pages. Perfect way to showcase all of the photos.

way to sweet stamp set

Today is National Simplicity Day, so I decided to keep my planner page as simple and fun as possible.

The warm weather has me eating ice cream everyday! My favorite ice is strawberry and thought it would be cool to showcase that in my panner.

Here’s how I created this planner page:

Stamp two ice cream cones and a heart from Altenew’s Way Too Sweet Stamp Set on the bottom left hand corner of the planner page.

Use the Artist Markers R301, R302, R304 and Y612 to color in the ice cream cones.

Print out a photo, round the corners with We R Memory Keepers 3 Way Corner Punch.

Use a penblade and cut out a portion of the heart so that the photo can sit behind it.

Adhere the photo with Altenew Glue Tape.

Stamp the sentiment under the photo and done!!!

Keeping the page since and simple!

Hello everyone and welcome to Altenew’s July 2018 Stencil Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing all of the new Stencil.  If you 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 Mini Traveler’s Notebook:

Molded Lines Stencil

Let me introduce to you the Molded Lines Stencil!! I love this stencil because it reminds me of the Continental Airlines who merged with United Airlines in 2012.

My daughter and I are traveling out of the country this month and can’t wait to document our trip. I created a mini traveler’s notebook so that we could document our great adventure each day.

Not only did I decorate the cover but the backside as well.

Molded Lines Stencil

To do that you simple turn the stencil over so that the lines go in the same direction. Super cool!

I added stickers from the Reflection Collection Paper & Sticker Sheet and stamped the sentiment from the Reflection Collection Mini Stamp Set.

Let the vacation begin!!
