Altenew Live Your Dream Scrapbook Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


Hello friends! I'm excited to be joining the blog hop for Altenew's newest release, the Live Your Dream Scrapbook Collection! If you're hopping along, you probably came from Kathleen's blog and next you'll head over to Zinia's (but I'll have the full hop list at the end of the post!)

Here's a little peek at the beautiful collection:


Our Live Your Dream Scrapbook Collection is a bright and elegant line that you can use to document any occasion. From the little daily moments, you want to remember forever to bigger milestones like parties and birthdays.

All of the products in this collection are very versatile and you can use them for many different projects such as 12x12 layouts, pocket scrapbooking, cards, home decor, and much more.  
This collection contains
  • 16 sheets of 12x12 double-sided patterned papers (2 of each/16 different designs)
  • 2 6"x12" sheets of puffy alphabet stickers (220 pieces)
  • 2 6"x12" sheets of chipboard stickers (38 pieces)
  • 2 6"x12" sheets of clear stickers (31 pieces)
  • 1 pack of wood epoxy buttons (20 pieces)
  • 1 pack of die-cut cardstock embellishments (32 pieces)   

I just love those colors and the artsy vibe! I created two layouts with the collection + a process video. The first features the gorgeous pink fade paper and came together in just minutes!


I used the chipboard, wood buttons, alpha, and die cuts. I also added in a few stamped leaves from the Indoor Garden stamp set!

The second layout came together fairly quickly as well and was inspired by the colorful circles found in the chipboard and die cut packs.


I embellished tone on tone (one of my fave things to do!) and also added in some florals from the Just Because stamp set that I heat embossed and then watercolored with my Altenew Watercolor 36 Pan Set. So pretty!

You can check out the process here video below!
