The project I’m sharing today features the gorgeous Leaf Medallion Stamp Set and coordinating dies. It is absolutely stunning! The details are incredible, and its size allows you to create a variety of projects with it.

I decided to make a mini album to document some of our October memories.

I love that the die set comes with an outline of the design, making it easier to create a shaped album or card. The papers come from the Celebrations Paper Set, and I also included many other Altenew stamp sets and dies, that I’ll list below in the supply section.

Here are close ups of the individual pages, as well as an overview of the whole album.

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 11/18/2018 for a chance to win. 6 winners will be announced on the Altenew blogs on 11/21/2018.

Altenew – Thankful Layout

Hello, Altenew fans. Enza here with you to share a new layout featuring the beautiful Layered Floral Elements Die Set.

This set is all you need to create pretty embellishments for your projects. As you can see, I got a little carried away, but it was fun. Plus, who doesn’t love big bouquets of flowers?

Let’s see how it came together!

I started by die cutting several layered flowers from patterned paper. I used the Reflection Scrapbook Collection, as the colors are perfect for a fall look. I love the shades of red, yellow, and pink, as well as the watercolor accents.

I created two big clusters in opposite corners of the page and layered my elements making sure to use foam dots for dimension. For the bottom layer, I used a cut file that included a variety of different leaves. I think it adds more interest and completes the look in a subtle way.

Once the clusters were ready, I used another cut file for the title. Again, the patterned paper came from the Reflection Scrapbook Collection.

The last thing I needed to add was the photo. I kept it simple, with no extra embellishments, as the background was already pretty busy. Enamel dots and black paint splatters finished the layout.

I love how this page came together. The Layered Floral Elements Die Set is perfect to create embellishments for any type of projects. I was thinking of using felt next, maybe. 😉

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a great day!


Altenew – 25 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS TAGS 2018

25 Days of Christmas Tags.
Hello, crafty friends! Altenew is one of the sponsors of the 8th Annual 25 Days of Christmas Tags with Tracey McNeely. Today the designers are sharing some beautiful projects on the Altenew blog, as well as Tracey’s blog. There is a chance to win some awesome prizes, so you may want to check them out.

I went with traditional colors for my tags this year. Reds and greens, with a touch of black.

For the first tag, I used the gorgeous Bountiful Branch Stamp Set. The number of layers in this set helps you achieve a very realistic look – I love the detailed images, as well as the endless possibilities in terms of color combinations.

After stamping the branches on Neenah Solar White 80lbs cardstock, I matted the tag with red cardstock, just to bring in more of the red color. I also heat-embossed the sentiment with Altenew Translucent Pearl Embossing Powder. A few clear drops and festive ribbons finished the tag.

The second tag is slightly smaller, and features another beautiful set: Holiday Bow.

I stamped several images on smooth white cardstock, and cut them with the coordinating dies. Before arranging them onto the tag, I die cut the Watercolor Stripes Cover Die and adhered it to the bottom layer for more texture and interest. I love the white-on-white effect! I used foam dots for the big bow, as I wanted more dimension.
The sentiment comes from the Happy Holidays stamp set. Again, I heat-embossed it with Translucent Pearl Embossing Powder. To make the colors stand out a bit more, I matted the tag with black cardstock.

I hope you have found some inspiration today. Don’t forget to visit Tracey’s blog to learn more about this event. Thank you for stopping by!
