Altenew August 2022 Marvelous Monthly Series Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in Total Prizes!)

 



Hello there!

Welcome to ALTENEW AUGUST 2022 MARVELOUS MONTHLY SERIES RELEASE BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY.  You are arriving from Teri Wilson's blog.  A list of all the participants is available at the bottom of this post for your convenience.



 

All the new ALTENEW subscription products have been revealed, and this month there are 5 beautiful designs that are sure to get you inspired and ready to create.  Let me show you what I have created 



Let's start with the new BUILD-A-GARDEN: DAFFODIL DELIGHT ADD-ON DIE BUNDLE.  This new stamp/stencil set with the die add-on is perfect for all sorts of projects. I am using to detail a new entry in my Family Journal.




It was so easy to create the BUILD-A-GARDEN: DAFFODIL DELIGHT  blooms, and then clustered them at the bottom of the spread.   A few sentiments complete the spread!




For this spread, I reached for the the new CRAFT YOUR LIFE PROJECT KIT: MAGNOLIA & BLOOMS. This new stamp/stencil/embossing folder/die bundle is amazing!  The stamp is so detailed you can easily use it as  a background and embellishment at the same time!



But having the option of coloring the embossed image with the stencil and then cutting it out makes it extra versatile.   And then there is the sentiments in the stamp set... just perfection!




I love the PAINT-A-FLOWER: WOOD ANEMONE stamp set. This large bloom is just the ideal size for customizing with your choice of coloring medium.   This time, I am using Artist Markers to color my blooms for this pocket page spread.




I am pairing the color images with stamped outlines of the same stamp set.  This helps to showcase the details in the flowers so much more, plus work great with my black and white photos.




Let's talk about the new CRAFT-A-FLOWER: OPEN PEONY Layering Die Set... just beautiful! and so easy to put together.  




I chose to cut all my pieces from white cardstock, then used Altenew Crisp Inks to add color to the bloom.   I paired it with a simple sentiment, and voila!




One of my favorite releases are always the Mini Delight subscription, and this time the new MINI DELIGHT: LIKE A STAR Stamp/Die Set is just magical.




I simply followed the instructions to create a soft rainbow of star balloons.  I tied them together to a sentiment tag and then added a few sprinkles to finish this card,

Now it is your turn to select your monthly subscription product.  Remember you can always subscribe to Altenew's subscription program to secure your set to arrive at home!

BEACH FUN - Doodlebug Designs

There is nothing more relaxing that a beach vacation.   The sea, the salty air, the beautiful landscape, the food;  but all these are better enjoyed when you are there with your loved ones.   The new SEASIDE SUMMER collection is just so colorful, cute, and perfect to document all those memories of your vacation.   Let me show you my first project with the collection




I just love the wave design in the Surf's Up paper.  So, I fussy cut a few strips to create my "wave" design on the page.





Since the picture showcases my family at the shore, I wanted to find a way to define the water space.  The best option, to use  white cardstock as the "land" for my page.   So, I trimmed the page to 11x11 and attached it to Beach Blvd. paper.





And to construct the sky, I used a stencil and some ink to add a few clouds to the top right corner of the page.   The Sun Doodlepop was just perfect for this corner of the page.  Just added a few clouds and ready to go!





Next was all about creating my "waves".   I glued the fussy cut paper strips to cover the bottom of the page.   There are so many cute embellishments, that I wanted to just bring some of them to the page, and added a small sea scene next to the title.  To finish, I just added a few splatters of white ink and more colorful sprinkles.





How cute are all those embellishments!  and perfect to bring life to your beach memories.  I hope this inspires you to document your sea adventures using the new SEASIDE SUMMER collection.  Cannot wait to see what you create!

Altenew August 2022 Bold & Beautiful Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in Total Prizes!)

 



Hello there!

Welcome to ALTENEW AUGUST 2022 BOLD & BEAUTIFUL RELEASE BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY.  You are arriving from Bridget Casey's blog.  A list of all the participants is available at the bottom of this post for your convenience.




Today's Bold & Beautiful Release is filled with some amazing and versatile stamps, dies, stencils, and embossing folders.   Let me show you what I have created with a few of the new products.



Let's start with this new entry featuring the new DAZZLING DAHLIA STAMP/DIE/STENCIL Bundle.  This is such a beautiful set, and having the coordinating stencil makes it easy to color the images in minutes.




I added a few sentiments from the HAPPY FLOWERS STAMP SET and WELL READ STAMP SET to complete my page.




I used the new WILDFLOWER GARDEN ADD ON STAMP & DIE BUNDLE to complement my  WILDFLOWER GARDEN COMPLETE BUNDLE in this simple layout.   




As I start a new month of documenting in my Journal, I like to create covers for it. This one features the new LINEAR SPIRAL STAMP SET - as it creates a great background- stamped with gold ink, and the new HAPPY FLOWERS STAMP and DIE BUNDLE as the focal element of the page.




Once again, I am  using the WELL READ Stamp set to help me build the title of my cover. Just love how this came together.




For my last project, I am using the new ARCH OF FLOWERS STAMP/STENCIL/DIE BUNDLE to create the journal pocket for my page.  Having the bundle makes it so easy to just color the image in a few minutes.




I added a small sentiment from the WELL READ STAMP SET at the bottom of the page.  And added one of the sentiments from the ARCH OF FLOWERS STAMP SET to complete my tag!


Just love how these turned out, and I am sure you all are already thinking about the projects you want to create with these new products.  Remember to take advantage of the promotions Altenew is having for the new release's celebration
