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.

Great layout design! I love how it tells a story and your placement of your son's photo has him wishing on all those amazing stars. Very FUN! Happy Birthday, Altenew! I look forward to celebrating many more anniversaries with all of you!

Miriam Prantner said...

Oh I love all those enamel dots in the stars!

TinyCrafter said...

I am not a scrapbooker. Not in the sense you are a scrapbooker. I put photos in my scrapbooks but not the way you do. I was never into that. I am a card maker among other things. However, those stars are so cool! I really love those enamel dots! I have some like it but I would like more. When I win, I want some of those enamel dots and the Halftone Star stamps since I don't have a die cutter. They would make the coolest cards!
Thank you for showing us your cool scrapbook layout and for giving us the chance to win something. I can't wait to see the rest of the blog hop! I am having so much fun!

karenelr said...
