Altenew Build-A-Flower: Flourishing Zinnia Blog Hop + Giveaway



Hey everyone, I am excited to be a Guest for Altenew today. Each month they release a new Build-a-Flower design and today I am sharing a project with the latest release called - Build-a-Flower: Flourishing Zinnia.

Here is a look at the stamp set:



Here is my completed layout using the set - 



I also have a process video to share with you today documenting how this layout came together including the process of stamping the beautiful Flourishing Zinnia florals:




To create this page I used the new release Build a Flower set and the Reflections Scrapbook Kit. 






These next two photos give you a good look at the details of the layout:



I love the layered look of the Build a Flower floral sets, so much detail is achieved through the application of four inks, don't you think?


On this layout I am documenting a recent girls night out I had with my bestie. They don't happen very often and are few and far between. We had such a fun night and it was a moment I wanted in my scrapbook.

I always enjoy seeing scrapbook layouts rather than cards because I’m (somewhat of a) scrapbooksr myself. This one’s really pretty! I like that it has different elements, but it doesn’t seem like “too much.” You made it work well together.

Beverly S. said...

I love how you mixed the zinnia with the other flower stamps on your beautiful layout! I grew ten large pots of zinnias this summer in my back yard from seed packets. It was my first time trying this but won't be my last. They were beautiful plus attracted butterflies! :) Needless to say I want this new Altenew stamp set! :)
