Altenew’s 3rd Anniversary Blog Hop + Giveaway




Hi everyone,

I'm super excited to be participating in day one of Altenew's 3rd Anniversary Blog Hop, thanks for inviting me May! After your stop at Yoonsun Hur's post, its now my turn to give you some Altenew inspiration.

To create my layout today I used the Painted Garden Ink and Stamp bundle and papers and embellishments from Altenew's Reflections scrapbook kit.

Here is the layout I created:


I decided to document another moment from my wedding album. This time, one from just before getting into the car to head to the ceremony, my bridesmaids helping me with those final touches before we were on our way. 

I stamped two of the Painted Flowers floral pieces to create my own floral embellishment die cuts for my page. Now I am someone who has NEVER stamped in layers before, and boy! these Altenew sets are a breeze to use. I followed the layering guide which I printed from the store, and used the inks included in the bundle. I just love the result and feel the finished result looks a lot more complex than it was. I'm in love! I do not have a special card stock to stamp on so I have simply used some flat white card from my stash and then fussy cut around the images. 


I also fussy cut some of the florals from one of the papers in the Reflection kit. I wanted to add a pop of contrast and these were perfect and tied in with the floral theme. The journaling is typewritten and short and sweet, but conveys what I need it to. 


Due to so much happening at the top left of the page, I decided to add a cluster to the bottom right. I used the second stamped image and also some of the embellishments from the Reflections kit.


I hope you have enjoyed my contribution to the hop! Keep reading to see how you can join in and win some amazing prizes.
