Altenew May 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil/Ink/Enamel Pin Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello and welcome to Altenew’s May 2019 Pin Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing the new stamps, die, stencil, ink and enamel pins.  If you arrived here from the talented Vicky Papaioannou 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!

Let’s take a look at my gift boxes:

Ombre Alpha

With Mother’s Day around the corner and two of my coworkers celebrating their birthday, I thought it was fitting to use the new stamp set and pretty paper to create super cute gift boxes.

I used Altenew’s new Ombre Alpha stamp set and the beautiful Blushing Blooms Paper Pack to create these tiny gift boxes.

Here’s how to create these gift boxes:

Pick 4 different patterned papers from the Blushing Blooms Paper Pack.

Use the envelope punch board to create the box shape. The only need these ruler measurements:

Set the 6×6 paper at the 1.5 measurements and punch. Then slide the paper down to the 4 measurements and punch.

Now all you have to do is turn the paper 90 degrees and slide the paper to the first score line punch and score and slide down to the second score line and do the same thing.

Repeat for the remaining side.

Then you want to cut the scoreline on the side of the box that has the bigger tabs. Cut just to the first score lines and repeat on the other side.

Fold the box adhere with tape and your finished.

For the tag, use the Mini MISTI to stamp the letters and use a tag punch to punch them out. I used a retired Stampin’ Up! punch.

Let’s take a look at some close-ups:

These two boxes are for my coworkers. They celebrated their birthday last week and I wanted to surprise them with a small token to celebrate them.

Ombre Alpha

I metal stamped the heart and created a necklace for each of them. The gift tag is a great addition to this little box.

Ombre Alpha

Here’s what the boxes look like from the top. They are nice and compact, perfect for a nice small gift. Each has tissue paper in them.

The other two are for my sisters, for Mother’s Day!

Ombre Alpha

So what do you think? Would you create cute boxes like this?

Altenew April 2019 Washi Tape/Embossing Paste Release Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to Altenew’s April 2019 Washi Tape/Embossing Paste Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing the new washi tape and embossing paste.  If you arrived here from the talented Alex Syberia 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!

Let’s take a look at my planner page:

Embossing Paste

I love decorating my planner with card making supplies. Altenew’s new Embossing Paste looks amazing on these pages.

Here’s how I created the two-tone color butterfly:

Embossing Paste

Scoop out a small amount of the embossing paste on a piece of disposable plastic (I used a zip bag, it was on my desk).

Then I added a small amount of color from the Puffy Heart Ink Spray and Sunkissed Metallic Shimmer Ink spray to the embossing paste and mixed it in.

Place the Flowing Butterfly Stencil where you want the image and apply the color paste evenly.

Gently pick up the stencil to see the image.

Embossing Paste

Stamp the sentiment from the Reason to Smile stamp set above and/or below the image.

Embossing Paste

Let’s take another look:

Embossing Paste

I also created a bookmark for my planner as well, using the same method as before.

Embossing Paste

Here’s a close up. Look at that texture and depth.

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.

Live Your Dream 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.

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 wooden clipboard scrapbook panel:

Tropical Fiesta

I saw this cute clipboard at AC Moore and figured I would try using these watercolor markers on them.

I love how this design turned out. Not to hard and with just the right about of ink, the flowers turned out nicely.

Let’s take a closer look:

I stamped the Rennie Roses image using black ink and with little watercolor ink, colored the image in using the watercolor markers.

Rennie Roses

Take your time, if you go to close to the line the watercolor might bleed out of the lines, especially with the red color.

Tropical Fiesta

Once the ink is dry, stamp the sentiment “hello” from the Watercolor Dots stamp set.

Pick an image to display and your done!!

Let’s take another look:

Altenew Live Your Dream Scrapbook Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello everyone and welcome to Altenew’s Live Your Dream Scrapbook Collection Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing the new scrapbook collection.  If you arrived here from the talented Nathalie DeSousa 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 DIY Traveler’s Journal Cover:

Live Your Dream Die-Cut Embellishments

Live Your Dream Scrapbook collection is full of fun vibrant colors! I’m tickled pink by these traveler’s journal covers. Super cute and easy to make.

Here’s how I created them:

Cut a sheet of patterned paper to 8 x 5, scored at 3.5, 4 and 4.5.

Live Your Dream patterned paper

Run the patterned paper through a laminator.

Live Your Dream Patterned paper

Choose the die-cut embellishments you wan to use on the front cover and run those through the laminator.

Live Your Dream Die-Cut Embellishments

Trim the laminated sheet and round the corners.

Rescore the score line, so that the plastic will fold nicely.

Use a 1/8 hole punch, punch 3 holes (on the score lines) 1/8 from the bottom and top of the traveler journal cover.

Live Your Dream patterned paper

Measure 2.5 on the middle line and punch a hole.

Live Your Dream patterned paper

Cut a 24 in piece of what elastic cording.

Now its time to string the elastic cord.

Live Your Dream

String the elastic from the front to the back of the cover, leaving a tail to tie at the end. I measured it for the hole its in to the middle hole in the center of the cover.

Now just go up, over and back down.

Now that you gone though each hole, your tails are opposite of each other.

The tail on the right will pass back through the hole below it so that its now on the inside of the cover.

The tail on the left will pass through the hole above it, so that it’s on the inside as well.

Like this.

 

Tie a knot nice and tight. Clip the ends.

Now you have four bands for four books!

Now cut another piece of elastic to 10in and string it though the middle hole from the inside out, to create the band that closes the journal.

Like this.

Now its time to add your books.

Cut out the laminated die-cut embellishments and adhere them to the front of the book.

I added only two books but four fit beautifully.

 

Live Your Dream

I’ll teach you how to make the books soon! Stay tune for those.

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