Here is the layout I created using the gorgeous Amazing You stamp set and the Reflection Scrapbook Kit from Altenew:

I absolutely adore the colors in this scrapbook kit. To begin, I selected a few patterned papers to use as a base for my roses and leaves. The watercolor effect on the patterned papers made the job very easy for me. I didn’t have to worry about coloring or adding shaded areas to my images. After applying VersaMark ink, I used white embossing powder to create a soft edge. Then I fussy cut the different elements and placed them on my layout to create a background for my photo. Some of the roses were stamped on vellum, heat embossed and colored in. I love the stained glass effect you can achieve with this technique.

I decided to keep the rest of the layout pretty simple, with just a few embellishments from the Reflection Scrapbook Kit and a sentiment.

From trendy watercolor painted papers, to beautiful cityscape postcards and a wide assortment of embellishments, this kit is perfect for creating gorgeous layouts, wall art, mixed media projects, and many more!

The kit contains:

  • 48 sheets of 12″x12″ patterned paper (two of each design)
  • One 8.5″x11″ cardstock sticker sheet
  • Two 6″x12″ alphabet puffy sticker sheets

For my layout I was inspired by the intense color of the watercolor painted flowers on one of the patterned papers:

I fussy cut the gorgeous roses and added some other black and white ones to give some contrast and create more interest on the page.

I love all the ephemera pieces included in the kit. The origami wood veneer shapes are so fun and versatile.

The epoxy buttons, as well as the cardstock stickers and die-cuts, complement the design beautifully.
