Hello and welcome to the Altenew October 2017 release blog hop. I'm so excited about this month's release and the new collection is out. It is GORGEOUS. There are also some amazing embossing powders and embossing ink.  If you have come here from Virginia's blog you are right on track.
 Our Family Scrapbook Collection
  • Description:
This scrapbook collection is right on trend with fresh colors, watercolored elements, geometric designs, and florals (of course!).  The papers and embellishments have been designed to help you document your precious family memories, but are versatile enough to use on any layout, journal, or card project.
  • The kit contains:
    • 36 Sheets of 12"x12" patterned paper (2 of each design)
    • One 3"x4" photopolymer stamp set
    • 12 3"x4" watercolor journaling cards
    • One 8.5"x11" sheet of 20 cardstock stickers
    • One 8.5"x11" sheet of 15 cardstock die cuts
    • One 8.5"x11" sheet of 16 chipboard stickers

    • One metal die (approx. 3.5"x4.5")
    • One roll of washi tape (15mm x 10m)

This is the layout I created for the blog hop. I started with a cut file which I created and then added some flowers cut from patterned paper. The enamel dots add the fininshing touch. You can see how it all came together in the video below.

Build-A-Flower: Poinsettia Release

2 October 2017

Hello and welcome. Today I'm sharing a project made with the brand new BUILD-A-FLOWER stamp and die set from Altenew: POINSETTIA
  • Description:
    • Poinsettias have been known to symbolize purity, good cheer, and success, but they are probably most recognized at Christmastime.  They are native to Central America and Mexico, and flower during the wintertime.  Some people even call them "Flores de Noche Buena," or "Flowers of the Holy Night."  Our gorgeous poinsettia can be stamped in four layers, and is accompanied by winter-themed sentiments.  Build-A-Flower: Poinsettia is sure to become a cherished part of your stamp collection!

You can find more inspiration on the card and scrapbook blog.

I created a little wreath to hang in our home once Christmas comes. I stamped several images using variations of reds from the RED SUNSET ink set and then cut them out. I added some green leaves from the FANTASY FLORAL DIE SET. All I had to do was place the elements onto some card that I had cut out, add a sentiment and hang it up.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a lovely week.
