Altenew October 2017 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello everyone! Today I am back with a totally different project!

Altenew has just released a new scparbook collection and we are celebrating with a fun blog hop. There is ton of inspiration and giveaways along the way so hop along with us!ย  If you want to start the hop from the beginning please visit the Altenew blog here.

This scrapbook collection is right on trend with fresh colors, watercolored elements, geometric designs, and florals.ย  The papers and embellishments have been designed to help you document your precious family memories, but are versatile enough to use on any layout, journal, or card project.

So today I created a scrapbook layout using elements from this collection. I do scrapbook and I like to mainly create layouts from our family travels. But I never share them. I don’t like to share photos of my kids online and that’s theย  main reason I avoid it. But today is an exception, I am sharing a lovely layout using a photo of my husband and kids that I took last summer while we were in Copenhagen. In the photo no faces are shown so I feel safe ๐Ÿ™‚

It was a lovely day in Copenhagen and after a lot of walking around we enjoyed an ice-cream looking at the view. For my layout I used that gorgeous paper with the color washes and I combined stickers, alphabets, enamels, wood veneers and die cuts from the collection.

It’s a quick and easy layout to create and you will see the process in the video. I love keeping the photo as the main focal point and then create clusters in different areas.

I printed my journaling and I also stamped the date the photo was taken.

Fun elements such as wooden stars, enamels and thread really add that extra something to your layout.

    I loved the fact that you make these into artwork to be hung on the wall. I am not a scrapbooker, but I love the idea of making it into something you can frame. Great set of choices in this pack. Thanks for always showing us something new. Toni
