Altenew Camellia Japonica Build-A-Flower Stamp Set - Kelly Janes

I started my layout with one of the 12×12 Patterned Papers from the Our Family Scrapbook Collection. I cut the Brick House Cut File from The Cut Shoppe in white cardstock and positioned it over the patterned paper. Using my Misti Stamping Tool, I stamped the Camellia Japonica Stamp in multiple colors (coral, purple, pink, yellow, orange and the leaves in green), and I used the Camellia Japonica Die Set to easily cut out each flower. Let’s just take a moment to look at the gorgeousness of this flower stamp set. I’m still amazed each time I put the layers together. I still in awe of the depth and dimension of Altenew’s Build-A-Flower Stamps!

I positioned two clusters of the flowers on the layout; one on the outside of the cut file and the other underneath the cut file. I love the added dimension this brings the layout! I also tucked the leaves under and over the cut file for even more dimension.

I didn’t think the layout needed a whole lot of embellishing because the stamped flowers add so much to the layout by themselves. I added my title using Black Alphas from the Live Your Dream Scrapbook Collection, a few Watercolor Butterfly Stickers, and a scattering of Enamel Dots.

Family | Altenew Guest Designer

Hi everyone! I’m SO EXCITED to share with you all that I was asked to be a guest designer on the Altenew Scrapbook Blog in June! I can’t even begin to tell you how thrilled and honored I am to have been asked by Altenew! I love their products and it was a pleasure to create three projects this month. I will be sharing all three layouts with you over the next week.

Altenew - Watercolor Doodles Stamp Set - Live Your Dream - Our Family - Kelly Janes

For my first layout I started with the Watercolor Doodles Stamp Set. I stamped a random background on a scrap piece of white cardstock using Black, Green, Purple, Cyan and Pink Inks. I love that this stamp set is meant to look abstract so you don’t need to worry about perfectly lining up the stamp set each time. After I had the stamping complete I cut the scrap piece of paper into triangles. I used a pink mist from my stash to add a splash of color on the background and positioned the triangles in the center of the layout. I machined stitched each of those triangles onto the background to be sure they were secure.

I then moved onto embellishing. My color scheme was based off the Altenew Our Family Scrapbook Collection, so I grabbed one of the Chipboard Words as my title. I also grabbed a few chipboard banners from the Live Your Dream Scrapbook Collection and a blue chipboard leaf from the same Chipboard Sheet. The other leaves on the layout are Stickers from the Our Family Scrapbook Collection. The Watercolor Butterfly Stickers were the perfect addition to the layout!

My photos are four photos that were taken when my dad was showing my son how to drive a riding lawn mower. This seems to be turning into a family tradition…my dad taught me and now my son. I added this journaling using my We R Memory Keepers Typecast Typewriter and a few enamel dots for the final touch!
