Altenew – All About Flowers


Hello, Altenew fans. Enza here, and today I’m sharing a new layout featuring the incredible Our Family Scrapbook Collection. The floral pieces in this kit are to die for. So, so beautiful!

I wanted to incorporate as many colors as possible, and make the bouquets that come in the Sticker Sheet the focus of my page. I started with a floral cut file to use as a base layer. I love that the background paper peeks through the cut file, that’s why I decided not to back it with patterned paper.


Next, I placed the floral stickers on opposite sides of the photo and adhered them down with foam adhesive for dimension. I also created a third cluster in the top left corner of the photo. I find that it continues the floral arrangement and makes it look more like a frame.


For the title, I used the Alpha Chipboard Stickers to spell “My little sunshine”. I added some foliage, that I fussy cut from one of the patterned papers included in the Collection, in between the letters to bring in the same elements and achieve a cohesive look. Enamel dots in coordinating colors and black splatters finished the layout.


I hope you have enjoyed reading about my process today. Thank you so much for stopping by.

Have a lovely day!

The layout I’m sharing today features the Peony Dream 3D Die set.

 

I can’t say enough how gorgeous this set is. The realistic look you can achieve with all the layering pieces is just amazing. I decided to use a mix of patterned papers from both Reflection and Our Family Scrapbook Collections. It worked like magic! The shading and watercolor effect of the papers shine through the different sections of flowers and leaves. After assembling the first peony, it was hard to stop! So many possibilities and different looks by just changing the colors of the papers.

Here I created a few floral clusters around the photo.

For the peonies, I layered the two different images that come in the set to achieve a more natural look. For the leaves, in addition to the dies included in the set, I used the ones from the other stand-alone die that has been released today: Rose Flurries 3D Die set. I love the combination of the two.

I decided to keep the embellishments to a minimum, as the flowers were already taking up most of the page. I just added a few arrows from the Point it out stamp set and simple sentiments from the Beautiful Quotes set. For the title, I combined the alpha chipboard stickers from the Our Family Collection with a stamped banner that features the “Beautiful” sentiment from the Amazing you stamp set.

I finished the layout with wood veneer leaves and buttons.

This release is truly amazing, friends! Don’t forget to comment along for a chance to win awesome prizes. Your next stop is Nina-Marie’s blog.

Altenew – Frosted Garden Layout

Happy New Year, friends! This is Enza, and today I’m sharing a colorful and flowery layout featuring the gorgeous Frosted Garden stamp set. My main inspiration came from the striped patterned paper in the Our Family Scrapbook Collection. I loved that the colors coordinated perfectly with the photo I wanted to use. Everything is so soft and dreamy!

I started by stamping the flowers onto another patterned paper that features splashes of watercolor paint in pink, blue, and purple tones. My goal was to create a tone-on-tone look by matching the color of the flowers to some of the stripes. To bring in more sparkle, I decided to heat-emboss the images with Platinum and Rose Gold embossing powders.

Once I had everything in place, I felt like I needed to add more elements to fill in the empty spaces. I then stamped a few flowers and leaves on white card stock with the following Altenew Crisp Inks: Puffy Heart, Soft Lilac, and Sea Glass. All the stamped images were cut with the coordinating dies and arranged to achieve a cohesive look.

I backed my photo with some patterened paper before adhering it down, and embellished it with wood veneer hearts, a tag, and the “love” chipboard sticker that come in the collection. I also decided to stamp individual leaves here and there using the same Altenew Crisp Ink shades to accentuate the tone-on-tone look.

To finish the layout, I added some sentiments from the Sketchy Floral stamp set and enamel dots.

The Frosted Garden stamp set is so beautiful! Definitely a must-have!

Thank you for stopping by! Have a great day!
