This new release is stunning! I love every single product, and I’m very excited to share my layout with you today. I chose the Simply The Best Stamp Set with coordinating dies. The size of the flowers is perfect for a 12×12 scrapbook layout.

I started by stamping the flowers with a variety of Altenew Crisp Dye Inks:

  • pink flowers: Baby Pink, Fuchsia, Razzleberry;
  • orange flowers: Vanilla Cream, Orange Cream, Firebrick;
  • purple flowers: Soft Lilac, Lavender Fields, Andromeda.

I then cut them with the coordinating dies – the die set includes not only a die for the large flower, but also one for the smaller flower and one for the center, allowing you to build several layers and unique clusters.

I added a floral cut file to the background before arranging all the other elements. This is something I often do, as it brings in an extra layer of interest and softens the look of the page.

I created three clusters, two on opposite corners of the photo and one in the top right area. Everything was adhered down with foam dots.

Last but not least, the sentiments. They come in the same set and are lovely. I stamped three of them on smooth white cardstock and shaped them in a banner shape before adhering them down. A wooden button, orange foliage, and several die cuts from the Live Your Dream collection finished the layout.

Now onto the 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 8/14/2019 for a chance to win.
