Altenew October 2017 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello everyone and welcome to Altenew’s October 2017 Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing the all of the new Embossing Powders and the Scrapbook Collection.  If you’ve 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 Scrapbook Blog so that you don’t miss a thing!

Take a look at my DIY Matchbook Mini Album:

Our Family Scrapbook Collection

I used the new scrapbook collection called Our Family Scrapbook Collection to create this DIY Matchbook Mini Album.

This scrapbook collection is right on trend with fresh colors, watercolored elements, geometric designs, and florals (of course!).  The papers and embellishments have been designed to help you document your precious family memories, but are versatile enough to use on any layout, journal, or card project.

The kit contains:

36 Sheets of 12″x12″ patterned paper (2 of each design)
One 3″x4″ photopolymer stamp set
12 3″x4″ watercolor journaling cards
One 8.5″x11″ sheet of 20 cardstock stickers
One 8.5″x11″ sheet of 15 cardstock die cuts
One 8.5″x11″ sheet of 16 chipboard stickers
Two 6″x12″ sheets of chipboard alphabet stickers
One 5″x6″ sheet of 17 adhesive wood veneers
One 4″x6″ sheet of adhesive enamel dots
One metal die (approx. 3.5″x4.5″)
One roll of washi tape (15mm x 10m)

Here’s how I created this DIY Matchbook Mini Album:

Last week I saw this amazing idea created by Aly from We R Memory Keepers and asked if I could CASE her idea.  I love what she created and wanted to give it a try.

For this project, I used one sheet of cardstock from the Our Family Scrapbook Collection.  It created the cover of the matchbook and the pages inside.

To create the cover, I cut a piece of cardstock to 3 x 9. Scored at 3 5/8, 3 3/4, 7 3/4 and 7 7/8.

Our Family Scrapbook patten paper

To create the pages inside, cutting the same piece of cardstock 9 times to 2 7/8 x 3 7/8.

Cut your photos to 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 and adhere one to each page.  Use the We R Memory Keepers Crop-A-Dile, punch holes at the bottom of each page.

Add word stickers and some of the Our Family Enamel Dots to add texture to each page.

Round the corners of the cardstock and photos using the We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper.

Our Family Scrapbook Collection

Punch holes in the bottom portion of the cover and the pages with two brads.

Our Family Enamal dots

To dress up the cover, add the tree die cut to the front of the matchbook.

Measure the tree and trim it so that the two pieces meet when the matchbook is closed.

Our Family Chipboard Stickers

Nice and easy!!

{Clean and Simple} – Cherish

Hello everyone!!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!!  We are back with another Clean and Simple Cue Card just for you!!

This week’s cue card:

Take a look at my card:

For this cue card I went with Darkroom Door Fine Butterflies Stamp Set paired with Altenew More Than Words Stamp Set.

When I think of the word cherish, I think of something special. Love is special and so are are butterflies.  I thought about leaving the butterfly uncolored but quickly changed my mind.  Watercoloring this image really made the image pop.  I used Jane Davenport Mermaid Markers.

Nice, simple and easy.

Altenew Crafty Friends Blog Hop

Hello everyone and welcome to Altenew’s Crafty Friends Blog Hop!! Today we are sharing our love of crafting with friends.  If you’ve arrived here from the talented Pretty Pink Posh 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:

Happy Holiday

The layout above is all about crafting with friends.  I use to do lunch Make-n-Take’s with my coworkers and they loved it.  We laughed and they learned how to create cards, boxes, ornaments, etc.  They really treasured our time together.  I love sharing my love of crafting with them.

My duties at worked changed so these lunch Make-n-Take’s dwelled away.  Looking back on these photos allow me to be grateful for these moments with my friends.

pattern play circle

Here’s how to create this page:

Using the PenBlade 15, cut some of the rose and the leaf so that the photo can rest behind them for dimension.

Reflection Scrapbook Collection

Then rounded all four corners of each photo.  Add some adhesive behind the photo and adhere them to the page behind the cut outs.

Reflection Scrapbook Collection

After that, cut a small piece of pattern paper. Adhere it to the top left hand corner of the layout by adding tape to the bottom right corner of that piece.

Then pull the top layer corner down about an inch and pin it down by placing a charm and a brad.

Happy Holiday stamp set

To add the title, use the puffy stickers from the Reflection Scrapbook Collection and run the title around the top of the photos.

Reflection Scrapbook Collection

To finish off the layout, using stamps from Altenew Pattern Play- Circle stamp set, Altenew Happy Holidays stamp set and Altenew Moments in Time stamp set to add a couple of sentiments to the bottom of the layout with the Memory MISTI.

Moments in Time
