Altenew: A Year In Review Blog Hop + Giveaway



Hey friends! Today I get to share something fun with you - my favorite Altenew projects from 2019! There were so many to choose from and I had a hard time narrowing it down. As I was deciding, I realized that some of them are my faves because of the photos. So here they are, in no particular order!

Sweet Boy



This layout uses the Build-A-Flower Hellebore stamp set, which is absolutely gorgeous. This photo of my daughter and nephew is so sweet.

Eighth Grade Cutie



Love flowers. So much. This layout features some awesome open line stamps from the Flower Garden Stamp Set that I colored in with the 36-Pan Watercolor Set. Love it.

Still Close



This is a layout I created before I was on the design team, but I love it just the same. I created the background with some Altenew Embossing Paste and the flowers came from the Botanical Rhapsody Washi Tape. The tape is black and white, so it's great to layer on patterned paper. I used the Alluring Blooms 6x6 Paper Pack and it looks awesome!

The Woods



This one is a fave because of the photos and I used the Poppy Garden Stamp Set + 36-Pan Watercolor Set for the florals. I also love the softness of the vellum butterflies from the Mix & Match Mariposa Die Set.

Sending Love Card



Although I'm on the Scrapbook Design Team, I enjoy making cards too. I totally loved creating this one using the Color Wheel Die with the new Metallic Watercolors that Altenew released this year. Anything rainbow is good with me!

Hello Layout + Cards



This one is kind of cheating, because it's multiple projects, but I can't help it. I am obsessed with this color scheme and had fun creating a die cut inlay on the background of my layout with the Wavy Outline Dies. I used the leftovers to create two cards and I love them too!

There are lots more projects I could share, but I won't overwhelm you because now it's time to hop along to the other creators taking part in this blog hop. So much inspiration to be seen!
