Altenew January 2018 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello everyone and welcome to Altenew’s January 2018 Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing the all of the new Dies.  If you’ve arrived here from the talented Galina Filippenko 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:

Alpha Die

Back in December, I went to a Whole Food for lunch during a workshop I participated in Brooklyn.  It was the closest place to eat so why not.  I first stopped at the salad bar but thought it was to cold outside to eat salad.  I notice they had a soup bar so I shared out a bowl of chicken noodle soup.  I wan’t happy about it but there wasn’t anything I could do until I saw the Pop-Up Ramon Bar.

Right away I thought yes, this is going to be so good.  I looked at the price and saw that the veggie soup was $8.  Great, I can swing that.  I asked for extra bean spouts and onions.  The chief fixed me a nice soup.  He handed me the soup and I walked to the counter.

The lady said $33.96, I almost went to the bathroom on myself.  WHAT did you say? $33.96 for a soup? I played it cool and pulled out my credit card and paid for this meal that should’ve cost me no more then $10.

Despite the huge price tag, this meal was good. LOL!!!

For this layout, I’m using the new Simple Alpha Die!!  The shape of these letters are perfect for scrapbooking.  They create an amazing title which is what I created above.

Here’s how I created this Scrapbook Layout:

I used Altenew’s Mini Blossom Die and a piece of scrapbook paper from the Reflection Scrapbook Collection to cut out all of the letters for the title.

Alpha Die

I used my We R Memory Keepers Typewriter to type the smaller title.

 

Alpha Die

I secured each letter to the base page with foam tape so that they are raised higher then the photos.

Super easy and fun!!

Altenew December 2017 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello everyone and welcome to Altenew’s December 2017 Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing the all of the new Stamps and Dies.  If you’ve arrived here from the talented Yoonsun Hur 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 Embroidery Loop Layout:

I’m so excited about this type of layout.  I’ve never seen this done before. Totally a brilliant idea.  I saw it on Instagram and had to give it a try. Thank you Lena from @rozalina_s for the idea.

Here’s how I created this Embroidery Hoop Layout:

I used a piece of pattern paper from Altenew Reflection Scrapbook Kit to create the base of the embroidery hoop.

Note: You have to really play with the paper and the hoop because the paper is very thick so it takes time for it to form to the hoop.

Once the paper is secured in the hoop, trim off the excuse edges and fold them back behind the loop.

Stamp the sentiment using Altenew Everything About You stamp set on a piece of what cardstock. Trim and round the edges.

Print and trim the photo to a 3 x 3 size.

Add thread behind the sentiment and the photo. Adhere both of them down using foam tape.

Finish the statement by using Altenew’s Our Family Chipboard Alpha Stickers.

For more texture, add some of the Altenew Our Family Enamel dots.

So very pretty!!

Artist Marker Set B

 

I used Artist Markers Set B to color that beautiful Anemone.

My Grandmother celebrated her 85th birthday a couple of weeks ago and some of my brothers and sister attended the festivities.  It was amazing so I chose to document it with this beautiful flower since this is her favorite one.

Here’s how I created this Travelers Notebook:

I used the Family Life Scrapbook Kit to decorate the left side of the page.

family scrapbook collection

Then I placed the photo on the top of the left side of the page.

I stamped the flower and colored it in using the Artist Markers Set B. The purple and yellow.

Then I stamped the sentiment using the stamp set that comes with the Family Life Scrapbook Kit.

Nice and simple.
