Altenew August 2017 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

23 August 2017

Welcome to the August 2017 release blog hop. If you have come from Laura Bassen 's blog, you are right on track.

I love this month's release as a lot of the products are FABULOUS items for scrapbooking.

To showcase the products I created this layout. I used the following sets: Charmed, Sweet Friend and Point it Out.

The layout only has two strips of patterned paper from the Reflection Scrapbook collection and I also added some enamel dots from the Card kit. All the other elements are made with stamps and ink.

You can see how the layout came together in HD on Youtube or just watch it below:


  • To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to THREE lucky winners. Leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog by Thursday, August 31st at 11:59 pm EDT for a chance to win.
  • I'm giving away a 30$ gift voucher to the Altenew store. Just tell me what your favorites are from this release. I'll pick a lucky winner on August 30th. 

YOUR NEXT STOP IS Nina-Marie Trapani

And here is the full list. Be sure to visit all the talented ladies. They have worked wonders.


July Citrus Twist kit and just for fun ...

19 August 2017

I had a wonderful time designing for Citrus Twist but decided not to reapply. I love working for Altenew and I felt I wasn't able to do both at the same time. I made this layout just before leaving on vacation and completely forgot to share it. I love the bright colours and think they match the goofy photo perfectly. 

The following two layouts I made just for fun. They really are the best layouts because the whole process is completely free. I love making my assignments but there are always constraints to take into account. When I scrapbook for fun I just go with the flow.

I'm currently working on a new blog schedule that will start in September. I hope to have at least one post a week and will be adding a couple of new themed items and challenges.

Thank you for stopping by and if you have anything you'd like to see here just pop it in the comment section.

Happy Scrapping



Build-a-flower: Anemone

15 August 2017

Every 15th of the month Altenew brings ouy their Build-a-flower stamp and die set. This month Altenew is featuring the ANEMONE.

I kept the layout really simple and stamped the flowers in grey tones using the Rock collection inks. Some touches of pink add a hint of colour and balance. 


Go and comment on the Altenew Card blog or Scrapbook blog and you could win a $30 gift voucher to the store.
