One of my favorite Altenew stamp sets is Bells and Bows. I have seen many gorgeous projects created with it, so I decided to incorporate it into my album. I started by stamping the bells in a variety of colors, and arranged them in clusters on a green patterned paper from the Our Family Scrapbook Collection. To achieve more dimension, I used foam adhesive to adhere them down, while to add texture I threaded jute into tiny holes I punched on the top of three of them. The little bows from the same stamp set add the finishing touch.
Since the spread is about my daughter playing her ukulele, I decided to incorporate some wood veneer music notes, which I heat-embossed with Rose Gold embossing powder. The red dots you see around the design come from the Blooming Bouquet stamp set. I use them a lot, especially when I don’t have enamel dots that coordinate with other colors on the page.
For the journaling card on the left side of the spread, I used the Brush Alpha Die Set to cut the word “story”. I also typed my journaling onto one of the 3×4 cards that come in the Our Family Collection and cut it into strips.
The wood veneer number in the other pocket was heat-embossed with Rose Gold embossing powder, as well. I wanted it to match the music notes on the opposite page.
I hope you have enjoyed reading about my process and will feel inspired to incorporate some of these beautiful stamp sets into your December memory-keeping projects.
Have a lovely day!
