Altenew’s 4th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 4 + Giveaway




Hi everyone,

I'm super excited to be participating in day one of Altenew's 4th Anniversary Blog Hop thanks for inviting me Altenew! 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 Our Family Scrapbook Kit by Altenew.

Here is the layout I created:


I filmed a process video also to show you how this layout came together:


I chose to document these photos of my daughter blowing out a dandelion on a recent family getaway last summer. I love that I was able to capture a moment like this and really wanted to document it. 


In terms of design the main inspiration for this page came from the floral stickers in the scrapbooking collection. They reminded me a little of a laurel wreath in the way that they curved so I decided to use the floral pieces to frame my cluster of three small photos. I printed the photos 4 up (4 small photos to a 4x6" piece) and in colour for this layout. 

I also added some stamping on this layout and used the 3 step floral stamp in the kit to add some further pops of pink to either side of the floral pieces on the page. 


To add further focus to the photo where my daughter is blowing on the dandelion seeds I added a small photo mat using the leftover paper from the background piece. 


The journaling was a nice quote I was able to find online - I thought it was appropriate and a nice 'life's lesson' page for my daughter. 


The wood veneer and enamel dots in the kit added those nice final touches to the layout. 



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