Altenew April 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil/Paper Pack Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hey friends! I’m so happy you’re joining me today for Altenew’s April 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil/Paper Pack Release. If you’re making your way through the hop from the beginning then you would have come from Lydia Evans’ Blog. If you’re starting here, WELCOME! You’ll find a link to the next blog at the bottom of the post; along with a complete list of hoppers.

For my first layout I used the Alluring Blooms Paper Pack. The colors in this pack are GORGEOUS!!! I really didn’t know where to start! I was immediately drawn to the paper with the large pink flower with the blue leaves. What an interesting and beautiful color combo! I fussy cut those floral images from two of the 6×6 patterned papers. I then positioned those floral images in the center of the layout. I wanted to add a bit more color so I grabbed two other floral patterned papers, fussy cut those images, and tucked them along side the blue leaf florals.

Before I adhered anything down, I applied a layer of clear gesso and used watercolors from my stash to add a little orange to the background. I then positioned and adhered the floral images to the white cardstock background. I realized I wanted a bit more color and interest, so I grabbed the Fine Frames Circles Die Set and another patterned paper from the same Alluring Blooms Paper Pack. I added the circles to the left and right of the floral cluster. I added my photo, from a cruise that my husband and I went on in 2012, to the center of the florals.

I kept embellishing minimal because I wanted the focus to be on the gorgeous patterned papers. I added a few Wood Veneer Epoxy Buttons, and my title using Black Alphas from the Live Your Dream Scrapbook Collection. I also added a sprinkle of Enamel Dots from the Our Family Scrapbook Collection and a splash of black splatters for the final touch.

For my next layout, I used the Summer Garden Paper Pack. The great thing about these Altenew 6×6 Paper Packs is you get four of the same pattern!

I started my layout with the Untamed Heart Cut File from The Cut Shoppe. I then took four of the same patterned paper from the Summer Garden Paper Pack and positioned those papers behind the cut file. Because you get 4 of each design in the Altenew 6×6 Paper Packs I was able to achieve the look of a full 12×12 piece of patterned paper! I added machine stitching around the heart once I had those 6×6 pieces of patterned paper adhered.

I then fussy cut a couple floral images from two of the patterned papers from the same Summer Garden Paper Pack. I added those florals to the upper left and lower right hand corners of the layout.

I positioned my photo on the bottom right and then moved onto embellishing. I used the Black Alphas from the Reflection Scrapbook Collection to spell out my title in the upper left corner. I also added a Camera Die Cut, tucked a couple Wood Veneer Leaves in the flower cluster next to the photo, and I also added a scattering of Enamel Dots from the Our Family Scrapbook Collection.

  1. Fantastic LOs Kelly! Love all the dimension you added with the details. May I ask how do you store your pages? I have created pages with dimension and keep them for a while on a Shadow Box Frame but when I remove them from the frame I find it difficult to store, any tips you would be so kind to share? Thanks in advance?

  2. Kelly, I’ve never had a paper pack that I could cut out images to use on a card front as well as a layout like you’ve done. Your layouts are fabulous! Love the detail of the gesso & orange in the background. That’s thinking outside the box. Well done!

  3. Loving this new release – especially the beautiful rose spray stamp set & that fancy hello die. Thank you for the lovely inspiration!

  4. Gorgeous layouts – love them both! I was shocked to see not another soul in your photo in the French Quarter!! When does that ever happen?! lol

  8. Such a fun surprise to see a second layout after watching the video of your BOLD first one! Very pretty soft green on that French Quarter LO:))

  9. Fabulous layouts! I would have never thought of fussy cutting paper – although partly because I hate fussy cutting and I don’t buy matching dies so I fussy cut my images 🙂

  10. Beautiful layouts! I especially like the second one with the heart design and the Summer Garden paper pack. I’m a huge fan of soft colors and those florals are so pretty! I enjoyed watching your tutorials and seeing how your pages evolved throughout the process.

  11. Wonderful layouts. Thanks for sharing your process, I really enjoyed your video. The new release paper packs are all lovely.
