Altenew Enjoy the Ride Scrapbook Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway




Hey everyone, I am super excited to be here as part of the new Enjoy the Ride scrapbook collection release blog hop for Altenew today. You may be visiting here today from the amazing Lilith Eeckel's blog but if you are not be sure to start at the start of the blog on the Altenew blog here.


Here is a glimpse in the bright and vibrant collection by Altenew 'Enjoy the Ride'.


Here is the layout I created as part of this hop:


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



The subject of this layout is our gorgeous puppy Lola. Lola is a cavoodle and the most incredibly patient dog in the world. It is hard to believe that she is 5 as to us she is still our baby girl and such a special part of our little family. The photo itself was taken one afternoon when she was relaxing on our couch. 


I chose to keep the colour palette quite pastel in terms of the papers that I chose to use on this layout. I adored the pink gingham style print in the 'Brisk' paper. I also adored the blue tone in the 'Blustery' paper. I chose to frame the whole layout in the 'Brisk paper, as well as create a mini envelope as a design feature for the page that will hold the journaling as well. To add detail to that border I added some machine stitching. The photo of Lola was matted on the 'Blustery' paper as well as the inside of the mini envelope lining. 


I loved the pops of green in the Bouquet ephemera and the blooming ephemera, so I decided to fussy but more leaves from the 'Clement' paper too. These allowed me to add dimension to my embellishment clusters and layer them with foam adhesive. 


I love to type my journaling. For this particular page I used typewritten journaling in block form and added it to the inside of the mini envelope. It had a small blank area at the bottom I added a heart enamel dot from Altenew from my stash. 


I did not have a large statement title to use on this page of Lola so I decided to layer the small label word 'Adorable' on top of the envelope ephemera. This ephemera envelope actually inspired this whole page design and prompted me to create the mini envelope that features on this page. It is amazing how one piece of ephemera can influence a page design isn't it. You may find this being the case with titles, metal dies, etc. 


I placed embellishment clusters to the left of the photo and to the right of the envelope. Again I used a combination of ephemera and fussy cut leaves.
