Altenew October 2018 Stamp/Die Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

11 October 2018

Welcome to the October 2018 release. If you have come from  Jennifer McGuire's blog then you are right on track. You can start the hop over on the Altenew Card Blog.

Today's release got me all excited for Christmas. I love documenting this period but I don't necessarily have the time to do a lot of crafting so preparing my album beforehand is my go to method. This year I'm going for super simple: a tiny album spruced up with embellishments and sentiments. You can learn more about the cover on the Scrapbook Blog
For the inner pages I used the Brilliant Baubles Stamp and Die set to create embellishments which I popped onto small squares. The patterned paper comes from the Altenew Celebration Kit. 



You can see how I created the embellishments in the video below. 



Here is a sneak peek of my layout with the potted plants which can been seen on the Altenew Scrapbook Blog.



PRIZES:

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 10/17/2018 for a chance to win. 6 winners will be announced on the Altenew blogs on 10/20/2018.

Thi Tran said...

Amazing!! Love the album idea!

Annalisa Young said...

What a lovely, soft color palette you've chosen. It goes perfectly with your album, as do the patterned papers you used. I appreciate seeing a sweet, simple project like this; it's a good reminder that I don't have to do ALL THE THINGS to make something pretty and meaningful. Thanks for sharing!

TinyCrafter said...

How cute & colorful are those ornaments? I love them! Those are what I want to get when I win. I love Christmas, I love ornaments & I love ornament stamps. Those will fit the bill very nicely, thank you very much!
I love all those plants! We used to have a plant table our living room & all of those plants or at least some of them used to be on our table. I like all the shades of green you used too. When I make leaves on a tree or just leaves in general I also use different shades of green. Why shouldn't a card be colorful?
Thank you for showing us your colorful scrapbook pages & for giving us the chance to win something.

Cynthia Clark said...

Fantastic projects, as always. Love this release.

I'm not a scrapbook person but a tiny album is such a great idea and something I could do lol. Perfect for special occasion/holidays when I just have a few things I would like to put/keep together but not really make a scrapbook. You have definitely inspired me to do this, thank you!

Sometimes we forget that stamps are very versatile and can be used for other things than cards or tags. It’s nice to see projects like your beautiful album to remind us there are other things we can do with our stamps. I love the potted plants too, it’s different. I like it!!

I love the wreath on the front of your mini album. The colours match the album colour so nicely. I also love the colours in your potted plants layout. An interesting idea to make up embellishments for your Christmas layouts ahead of time. That's thinking ahead and being organized. Your ornaments are lovely and Will make a gorgeous page I'm sure. That brilliant baubles set is one of the the new release.

Kris Butler said...

I love your exciting ideas. I can't wait to try them.
