Altenew June 2018 Stamp/Die Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


Hi everyone!

Welcome to the Altenew June 2018 Stamp/Die Release Blog Hop. I am honoured to be asked to join in on another release hop and I have one project to share with you today. If you have already been hopping along, you should have arrived here from Therese Calvird's blog!

For this blog hop I have played with a couple of new release products. The featured product being the new Climbing Clematis stamp set. This set teamed with the Our Family Scrapbook kit worked beautifully together. 



Keep reading to see my layout and also the two ways you can win gift certificates to spend in the Altenew Store

Before I begin you can see the entire June Release, click HERE. I have also teamed my projects with the 'Our Family' scrapbooking collection from the store.

Ok now lets get onto the making, here is the layout I created.


Here is a process video for how this layout came together:



I am documenting a beautiful gesture by one of my colleagues at work today. Sometimes a little act of kindness can change your whole mindset and set you back on the right track. To help the photo stand out as the feature for the layout I used the new Party Banner Die, but instead turned that into a tag and added some ribbon to the top. 

I stamped the Climbing Clematis stamp set onto white textured card stock and clustered those to the right of the photo. I stamped with pink and purple inks to coordinate best with my photo. 


Other embellishments on the page were from the Our Family kit, including the fussy cut florals cut from one of the papers in the kit. 


Here is a close up of the journaling, I used my typewriter to document this story. 


The textured card stock adds a subtle detail to the stamped florals that I like the look of. I also love the stamped florals when they have that white border around them, I think it really helps them to stand out.
