Altenew Build-A-Flower Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello everyone and welcome to Altenew’s Build-A-Flower Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing the all of the different Build-A-Flower stamp sets Altenew carries. If you’ve arrived here from the talented Virginia Lu 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 Planner Layout:

Blissful Bud

I used Altenew Blissful Bud stamp set!! I know its not named a Build-A-Flower stamp set but you do build these roses.

I decided to continue with scrapbooking in my planner because it’s doable and I love how my planner pages look day-to-day.

Have you ever worked with people that you truly loved? Have you worked with co-workers that you consider family? Well I have and I have to say that I miss them a lot. So I decided that I had to document them in my planner.  I meet these ladies 7 years ago when I return back to Bellevue to work. We’ve laughed together, cried together, brainstormed together, and encouraged one another. I miss them so much. They deserve a page in my planner!!

Here’s how I created this Planner Scrapbook Layout:

I’m using a Hobonichi Techo 2018 this year.  I love how small and compact it is. Scrapbooking in this planner is so easy because space is limited and I’m not required to fill a whole page.

Print the photo you want to use in your planner. The picture above was printed with the FijiFlim INSTAX Share SP-2 Smart Phone Printer.

Stamp the stem using Altenew Green Meadow ink set. Start with Altenew Just Green Crisp Dye Ink  then stamp the inner stem piece using Altenew Hunter Green Crisp Dye Ink.

Follow the steps to stamp the leaves using the same colors or the other two colors in the same Green Meadow set.

Blissful Bud

Now its time to stamp the rose bud.  Following the same steps as the stem, choose three different colors to build the rose bud. I used Altenew Tea Party Oval Set to build the rose bud.

Start from the lightest color to the darkest color. I started with Altenew Pink Pearl, then Coral Bliss and ended with Heart Beat.

Tea Party Ink Set

Once the rose are complete, its time to stamp the sentiments to go along with the photo. Along with the sentiment from Blissful Bud, I used a couple of sentiments from Altenew’s Beautiful Inside stamp set using Altenew Permanent Black Crisp Ink. 

Complete the page with some journaling.

Perfect!!!

Let’s take another look:

I love knowing that I can open my planner and see this page.

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!!

Happy Day with Concord & 9th

Concord and 9th

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today showcasing the yet another stamp set from Concord & 9th August Release.

Today it’s all about balloons with the Happy Balloon stamp set!!

Let’s take a look:

concord & 9th happy balloon

I love how the balloons can be used as hot air balloons too.  This stamp set is so versatile and can be used all year round.

Here’s how I created this card:

Simple stamp the solid balloon using Altenew Deep Iris Ink.

Using the decorative balloon stamp and the basket stamp, stamp the image using Altenew Black Ink.

To finish the card off, stamp the sentiment right under the balloon.

Nice, clean and simple.  This card is so doable and the possibilities of making a couple of these cards are great.
