Build-a-flower: Carnation and giveaway

13 December 2017

This month's build-a-flower set features a beautiful carnation. The meaning of carnation includes fascination, distinction, and love, and its use in art and decor dates back to ancient Greek and Roman times. With their ruffled appearance and classic beauty, these flowers possess a charm and allure that continues to captivate people around the globe. Alongside the multi-step carnation, we have included two-step leaves, berries, and a cluster of tiny flowers that can be used as filler images for your flower arrangements! The set also includes three kindness sentiments that are great for any occasion.

I love this set and I created two cards with it. I started with a classic design and added some detail by embossing the kraft card base. As I has some leaves left over I thought I'd create a second card. I created a Christmas card turning my leaf into a Christmas tree.


Stop over on the Altenew card blog and scrapbook blog to leave a comment as there are two 30$ gift vouchers up for grabs on both.


Leave a comment here on my blog by December 18th and I will draw one lucky winner who will get a 20$ gift voucher to the Altenew Store.

8 December 2017

Have you hopped over from the blog my crafty crush Lydia Fielder well you are right on track.  This month's release is SUPER FUN because we have a NEW PRODUCT. A mini die cut machine. It is sooooo cute.
 I created a very simple project using the Frosted Garden stamp set and the Brush stroke die. I used I text I wrote on a training course about AUTO-LOUANGE (French word meaning "Self-Praise"). I was a wonderful experience and I love creating texts like this. This was my first one. I thought it would me nice to frame it.
One of the phrases I say regularly to keep calm: I am the lullaby in stormy winds.

Altenew blog hops are fun for several reasons. The first is that there is a TON of inspiration and the second it that there are lots of AWESOME prizes. 

I'm giving away a 30$ gift voucher to the Altenew store. All you have to do is leave a comment before December 15th and tell me what your favourite product is from this release. I'll pick a winner on the 16th and announce it on my blog.
