Altenew May 2017 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

25 May 2017

Welcome to a new release from Altenew. I was over the moon when I found out that Altenew was going to release embossing powders. THEY ARE AMAZING.

I created three layouts for this hop and I think your'll see which stamp is my new favorite (Halftone hearts) . I stamped and then embossed some of the hearts with clear embossing powder. I then cut them out. The white embossing powder is fabulous and really crisp. I took the sentiment I LOVE YOU and embossed it onto some black cardstock. 


For the next layout I used several stamps. I used the 365 stamp set to stamp a border and created a background with the Pattern Play Diamond stamp set and the Watercolor Frame set. I also embossed with the butterflies with Translucent Pearl. They turned out so sparkly.

For my last layout I went back and got the heart stamp back out. I just couldn't resist. I added a text stamp from the Layered letters AFG stamp set. I created my own wood and epoxy button using ink, a punch and some clear embossing powder. 


To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to THREE lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew blog by Thursday, June 1st at 11:59 pm EDT for a chance to win. The winners will be announced on the Altenew blog on Saturday, June 3rd.

I will also draw a winner to receive a $30 gift certificate. All you have to do is tell what your favorite release item is.

April's Citrus Twist posts

4 May 2017

Hello. Just popping in to show a couple more of my layouts created for Citrus Twist Kits. I'll be back soon with more ALTENEW projects too.

In the first layout I wanted to use the Maggie Holmes as base. I just added embellishments and my photo.

In the second layout I went with a whimsical look. You can watch the video below.

I just cut out some clouds from some patterned paper and then worked with the embellishments from the kit.

Have a lovely day and see you tomorrow with a fun Altenew layout.

Citrus Twist ....

24 April 2017

Finding the time to blog is so hard. Now that the boys are older I thought I'd have more time but I DON'T. They are always asking me for things. I'm going to write smaller posts and share my Citrus Twist Kits layouts as I make them. That way it'll be easier. 
Here is the first one I made with the April Sophie Main kit and the Add-on. I loved one of the patterned papers and cut out lots of stars which I placed in a circle.  Easy and so colourful. 

Stop by a little later this week for more projects.

15 April 2017

Altenew is excited to announce their newest  Build-A-Flower Set . It is released on the 15th of every month – so make sure to look out for these beauties!
Each set offers a 6×8 stamp set and a coordinating die so you can easily create your projects. This is only available as a set, not as individual products.

You might have seen a lot of cards made with the set but I created a layout. I used the outline of the flower as well as one of the sentiments. Don't forget to hop over to the ALTENEW blog to win a 30$ gift voucher.

Happy Scrapping.
