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?

Let’s take another look:

Altenew December 2018 Marker/Embellishments Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello everyone and welcome to Altenew’s December 2018 Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing all of the new markers and embellishments.  If you arrived here from the talented Gayatri Murali 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 kraft scrapbook:

Super clean and simple kraft scrapbook is perfect for any occasion.

For the front of this scrapbook, I used the Sweet Hearts Adhesive Wood Veneers to create a simple title.

Take a look inside:

This scrapbook was created with several pieces of dessert storm cardstock and bind the book using the We R Memory Keepers Cinch.

I used dessert storm cardstock because its so neutral and matches with any color added to it. This allows the scrapbook to focus on different occasions within the year.

Green Fields Enamel Dots

One the first page, I created a pocket and a tag for my journaling. Its a private message to my niece. I tucked it away, so that others can view the pages but not the message upon opening it.

I decorated these page with the Green Fields Enamel Dots and the Butterfly Acetate Die Cuts.

Butterfly Acetate Die Cuts
I love adding texture behind my photos because it adds depth. Adding the date with the date stamp is a perfect way keep track of when events happen.

Acetate Butterfly Stickers

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?!

I love the new Hello Gorgeous stamp set! It is perfect so show others how much you care about them. I also love that we could encourage ourselves with this set too. How many times do we praise ourselves? Almost never. So, I took the time to talk about myself this month.

Decorating this planner page was easy:

  1. Just stamp the sentiments.
  2. Then add the photo.
  3. Add some embellishments.

Nothing to it.

way to sweet stamp set

Today is National Simplicity Day, so I decided to keep my planner page as simple and fun as possible.

The warm weather has me eating ice cream everyday! My favorite ice is strawberry and thought it would be cool to showcase that in my panner.

Here’s how I created this planner page:

Stamp two ice cream cones and a heart from Altenew’s Way Too Sweet Stamp Set on the bottom left hand corner of the planner page.

Use the Artist Markers R301, R302, R304 and Y612 to color in the ice cream cones.

Print out a photo, round the corners with We R Memory Keepers 3 Way Corner Punch.

Use a penblade and cut out a portion of the heart so that the photo can sit behind it.

Adhere the photo with Altenew Glue Tape.

Stamp the sentiment under the photo and done!!!

Keeping the page since and simple!
