Splashing Paper

Finders Keepers new Puddle Jumper collection is amazing. The papers are fun and full of amazing colors.

I created two Traveler’s Journals using the pattern paper, cardstock and stickers.

Let’s take a look at the inside of the Journals:

Puddle Jumper Slashing paper

The traveler’s journal cover is laminated so that it can be used over and over.

I added clear plastic pockets so that pictures, tickets or journal cards can be added to the front and back of the journal.

Raining Pattern Paper

Puddle Jumper Pennies from Heaven Paper

Both traveler’s journals have two notebook and two folders. One of the folders is smaller then the other to give the journals a different feel.

Let It Rain Paper

Puddle Jumper Sticker Sheet

I used the sticker sheet to create tabs in all of the notebooks and to decorate the notebook covers.

Altenew January 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello everyone and welcome to Altenew’s January 2019 Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing all of the new stamps, dies, and stencils.  If you arrived here from the talented Rubeena Ianigro 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 4 x 8 scrapbook album:

Mask Stenciling

I returned from Creativation 2019 two days ago and had so much fun seeing all of my crafty friends. It inspired me to create an album dedicated to them.

Here’s how I created this album:

I stenciled a couple of flower stems from Altenew’s Angelique Motifs Mask Stencil with Forest Glades Ink unto a white piece of cardstock.

Then I stamped the sentiment from Altenew Mega Greeting 3 using black ink.

After that I adhered the Simple Friend Die cut right next to the stamped sentiment.

Use We R Memory Keepers Cinch and Rose Gold binding wire to bind the album together.

Friend Die

Super easy and done. Now I can’t wait to fill it with photos.

Here’s another photo using the same stencil:

Altenew Masking Stencil

I facilitated a banner scrapbook make-n-take at Creativation this year at the Altenew booth. It was so cool. Everyone one loved working with the stencils. They saw how easy it was to create a simple but stunning design in under minutes.

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

Altenew December 2018 Stamp/Die/Paper Pack Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello everyone and welcome to Altenew’s December 2018 Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing all of the new stamps, dies, and paper packs.  If you arrived here from the talented Amanda Korotkova 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 6 x 6 patterned paper scrapbook:

I love Altenew’s new paper pack called Verdant Walk. The paper is nice and thick and doesn’t need chipboard for reinforcement.

I also love combining my love of sewing supplies with my scrapbook supplies.

Here’s how I created this album:

Verdant Walk Paper Pack

Decide on how many pages you want your album to consist of. For this one I created a 5 page album.

Using the new Mega Greeting 3 stamp, I stamped the sentiment on the first patterned paper, creating the cover.

With the large grommet, I created a hole in the top left hand corner.

Once each piece of paper had a hole, I used the grommet pliers to close the grommet around the paper.  Do not squeeze to tight. You want the papers to slide around the grommet.

Add the photos to the center of each paper using glue tape and two black enamel dots from the Green Field Enamel Dots set to decorate each paper.

Verdant Walk Paper Pack

Friends are everything right?! Such a great way to show them off. What do you think?

Altenew Crafty Friends Blog Hop Day 2 + Giveaway

Second Post for today
If your looking for Technique Tuesday Day 2 Release, click here

 

Hello everyone and welcome to Altenew’s Crafty Friends Blog Hop!! Today we are celebrating our unique community by sharing a project inspired by our favorite crafter or an anecdote about our crafting adventures.  If you arrived here from Scrapbook & Cards Today 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 fabric scrapbook:

Reflection Scrapbook Collection

I sooo love this little fabric scrapbook album. I started 20 years ago when my son was born. I stopped after a couple of years and then fell in love with card-making. Recently, I discovered sewing and I can’t stop sewing, LOL!

For this project I decided to combine my love of all things crafty to share with you, my crafty friends!!

Here’s how I created this scrapbook album:

Decide on the fabric and cut two 7in squares. I used Adornit Vintage Polka Dot Yellow fabric.

Decide on the ribbon that would be used to close the album. I used Adornit Brown Polka Dot Ribbon.

You can hand stitch or machine stitch the ribbon to the back of one of the fabric squares.

Cut two 5inch pieces of white cardstock and adhere it the center of the wrong side of the fabric.

Using fabric glue, glue all of the side to the center of the paper.

Do this to both piece of fabric.

Cut two piece of cardstock 5 x 12 and score them 4 and 8 giving you 3 panels. Fold on the score lines and adhere the two pieces together to create an accordion look.

Adhere the back and front of the accordion to the front and back of the fabric pieces to create the album.

It should look like this.

After you assemble the scrapbook, its time to decorate it!

Reflection Scrapbook Collection

Add stickers to each page, leaving space for a photo. The photos can vary in size up to 3.5 x 3.5.

Reflection Scrapbook Collection

Close the book, string the chipboard onto the ribbon and tie a pretty bow.

Altenew Watercolor Brush Markers Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello everyone and welcome to Altenew’s Watercolor Brush Markers Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing the brand new Watercolor Brush Markers.  If you arrived here from the talented Norine Borys 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 watercolor scrapbook layout:

Watercolor Markers

I love the electric effect the watercolor created on this page. Super vibrant and fun. So was this trip to Universal Studios with my sister, daughter and nieces!

Here’s how this layout was created:

Gather Altenew Watercolor Markers and Altenew Large Watercolor Palette to get started.

Watercolor Markers

Before you can use the markers you have to remove the green ring that prevents the ink from reaching the brush before the are ready to be used.

Watercolor Markers

Squeeze the barrel to release the ink onto the palette.

Watercolor Markers

Use as many colors as you want.

Watercolor Markers

Spritz the palette with water so that the ink can move around when you apply it to paper.

Watercolor Markers

Turn the palette onto the paper and watch the ink move across the paper. Its amazing. I love this palette for this very reason. You can see how the ink moves and make adjustment if you want.

Watercolor Markers

Once you lift the palette, you will see some ink left on the palette that you can place somewhere else on the paper.

Watercolor Markers

Once the watercolor look is to your desire, let it dry. Since I wanted it to dry quickly, I used my heat tool to dry it.

Watercolor Markers

Now it time to add the photo and embellishments. Start with the title. I used the Reflection Scrapbook Puffy Stickers for this title.

 

Watercolor Markers

Type up the journaling and adhere it next to the photo. Use the Date Stamp to add the date multiple times. Splatter some black ink drops for contrast on the page.

Watercolor Markers

Add some thread and Reflection Scrapbook Collection Stickers under the photo.

Watercolor Markers

Pretty cool right?!
