Altenew October 2017 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

 Hello creative people! Welcome to my blog. 
Today we are introducing Altenew's second scrapbook kit called Our Family.

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
    • Two 6"x12" sheets of chipboard alphabet stickers
    • One 5"x6" sheet of 17 adhesive wood veneers
    • One 4"x6" sheet of adhesive enamel dots
    • One metal die (approx. 3.5"x4.5")
    • One roll of washi tape (15mm x 10m)

Here's my take on the kit...


My inspiration began with this rainbow-colored paper and of course those cute photos of my little girl and me too! I used the journaling cards to create colorful huge hearts, I just draw some heart shapes by hand and fussy cut them. For adding more contrast, I layered behind them some white hearts too. When finished, I arranged the layered hearts to the vertical central line of the page using the 'tone on tone' technique. I created my title using the lovely cardstock alpha stickers, they and completed my layout with wood veneers and enamel dots. Absolutely love the end result!
