Winnie Walter May Documentarian Day 2

25 May 2018

Hello everyone.

Today I'll be sharing my last project (projects) for Winnie and Walter. For my double project I decided to create a layout and as I had some leftovers I created a quick card too.

I do this a lot. I LOVE making layouts but I also enjoy creating cards but as I don't have much time I usually don't get out all my supplies just for a card so usually once I have finished a layout I just create a card at the same time.

For my projects I went through my patterned paper stash and picked out some fun vibrant patterns that go together. I cut out different sized balloons and then started playing with the design on my layout.

I drew some string by hand and also added a couple of bows that are on the die set to the balloons. For the embellishments I used some old stickers and chipboard elements.

The card was really simple and I used the same ideas as in the layout.

You can see how the two came together in the video. Some of the creative process is missing due to a problem with uploading the videos. I lost some of the videos. I hope it gives you an ideas of how the layout and card were made.

Thank you so much for having me as May 2018 Documentarian Winnie and Walter. I loved creating with your products and will create many more.

I'm giving away a 30$ coupon. Just comment and I'll pick a lucky winner next week Friday.


Altenew May 2018 Stamp/Die Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

21 May 2018

Welcome to the May 2018 Release Blog hop. If you have come from the Simon Says Stamp Blog you are right on track. The Altenew blog hops are always such fun. Lots of inspiration and lots of prizes up for grabs.

I created a layout with the Garden Silhouette Bundle.

I paired it with the Layered Dahlia Stencil which I used to create a colourful background. I used an envelope pocket to add a backdrop for my photo.

The Silhouette Garden set was perfect for creating little embellishments. I stamped the images with a very light grey ink and then watercoloured them. 
For the title I used the word love from the Script Words die set which I cut with my Mini Blossom die cut machine from Altenew. 

To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 6 lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or Altenew Scrapbook Blog by Friday, May 26th for a chance to win. 6 winners will be announced on the Altenew blogs on 5/27/2018.

Winnie and Walter Documentarian

18 May 2018

Hello there everyone. I am thrilled to be the May Documentarian at Winnie&Walter.
I got the chance to worked with them a couple of years ago and I loved it. I had so much fun creating with the stamps and die they sent me.

Today I will be sharing my first project which is a layout. I used The Framed With Evelin T design stamp set and paired it with the Kindness set. I had filmed the whole process but something went wrong when I uploaded my files and I lost them all.  So I'll explain how I created the layout.

I started by stamping the frames and then I added the tree, cactus and leaf shapes. For colour I used alcohol markers and blended different shades together. I choose three tones: pink, grey and green and used black for the stamped images. 

To give the frames some depth and have the impression they pop off the page I added some shadow using a light grey alcohol marker. 

I also added the shadow to the photo to tie all the elements together. 

For my title I picked sentiments and words from the True stamp set. I added a touch of pink with stickers from sticker supply and chose some that would fit in with the layout. 

My layouts are a reflection of me, my feelings and things I would like to say to my loved ones. They aren't always about events or places. Scrapbooking helps me express myself which is sometimes a little difficult as my husband and children only speak French but I my mother tongues are Dutch and English. I miss expressing myself in these languages and crafting has helped me get my words and feelings out on paper. 

A big thank you to Winnie and Walter. I'll have another project lined up next week.



Altenew Build-A-Flower: Morning Glory

1 May 2018

Today Altenew is releasing the May Build-A-Flower set called Morning Glory.

Our Build-A-Flower: Morning Glory set includes 1 6x8 stamp set (21 stamp images) and 1 coordinating die set (3 dies).

This set contains two beautiful multi-layered morning glories along with leaves and vines. Morning glories produce typical funnel-shaped blossoms in white, red, blue, purple, and yellow. You may stamp these flowers in any of our Altenew ink colors to get great results!   

This special product is only sold as a set, not individually.

I created a simple layout doing a lot of flower stamping. I chose to use blue tones with the flowers.

I stamped some of the images on some Solar Crest White cardstock from Altenew and also stamped two images seperately. I popped them onto foam dots to add dimension and detail.
I picked blue hues that match the patterned paper I picked from the Reflection Scrapbook collection. 
The Deep Blue Seas Ink set was a perfect fit. 

For the greenery I used some Forest Glades and Frayed Leaf Crip ink. A couple of enamel dots and butterflies add the finishing touch.

The sentiments in this set fit perfectly so I didn't need to use anything else.
This set is problably my favourite to date but I think I say that for every BAF set that comes.

Thank you for stopping by.

Altenew’s 4th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 2 + Giveaway

4 April 2018

Welcome to the 4th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 2.  
If you have come from the AMAZINGLY TALENTED Kristina, then you are right on track. You can start the hop on the Altenew blog if you have just arrived. 
I have been on the Altenew Scrapbook Design Team for nearly 2 years and it has been such an amazing experience.
Altenew has supported me in so many ways and I have been able to grow my business because of their support. I still enjoy using their products as much as in the beginning and at each release I am inspired to try out new techniques. 

For this anniversary blog hop I created a layout using one of my favourite dies: HALFTONE STARS DIE. I love using it with the coordinating stamps but it is also a great on it own.

I cut out some stars using my large Big Shot die cut machine which can take a 8.5 by 11 inch paper. I popped that onto some foam tape and then added a photo behind one of the shapes.

I used enamel dots from the Our Family Scrapbook collection to fill up two of the stars and popped some of the journal cards from the same collection beneath two others. On one of the cut outs I also added some enamel dots to change it up a bit. 
Some star die cuts finish off the layout. I used the sentiments from the Halftone Stars set to add journalling and my title was made with the Script Words die set. 


Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 5 lucky winners and one Altenew Academy class to 5 lucky winners. There are also 13 awesome companies/crafty friends who are celebrating with us, and they are offering the following prizes:
