Altenew February 2023 Boho Chic Stamp, Die, Stencil & More Release Blog Hop #2 + Giveaway ($300 in Total Prizes!)


Hi there!

 Welcome to ALTENEW FEBRUARY 2023 BOHI CHIC STAMP, DIE, STENCIL & MORE RELEASE BLOG HOP #2  + GIVEAWAY.   You are arriving from Therese Calvird's blog.  A complete list of all the participants is available at the bottom of this post for your convenience.

The new release from Altenew is filled with so many beautiful and versatile products it was so easy to mix and match them in a few projects:

Let's start with this card featuring the new Delicate Floral Motif Hot Foil Plate.    This is  such an amazing little plate, the pattern it creates is perfect.   I created a few panels with the plate, then the negative foil pieces.

I trimmed the images to form the tile pattern on the panel, then accompany it with the Wishing die cut out.

For my next project, I combined the new Rattan Stripes Die with the Swamp Buttercup Stencil/Die Bundle.   There is always something nice about a linear background with a rather flowing image atop of it.

I cut two of the dies, then crossed them to create a basket weave pattern.   This was attached atop of  a vellum pocket for one of  my Gratitude Journal layouts.

I am totally in love with the new Patchwork Tiles    The  look it brings to the page is perfect and can be modified to fit an infinite number of projects.

I am adding some Wild Geranium florals to the page as embellishments, then used the  Boho Arrow Stamp set to add the title forthe spread.

For my last project, I used the entire Enamel Elements Ensemble to create my spread. I  used the Glacier Caves Gradient washi tape and the Decorative Enamels Die Setto create the background of the page.

To embellish the page, I am using the Enamel Flowers  to create die cuts and to help me build the title for the spread.   Just love how it all just coordinated seamlessly in the spread.

I hope this has provides some inspiration with some of the new products.   As always, to celebrate the release, Altenew is hosting a generous giveaway:

I am sure that all of you have lots of memories of Christmas ( past and present) to document!  Today, I want to give a bit of inspiration featuring the sweet Candy Cane Lane in my December 6x8 album.

There is so much cuteness in this collection that it was so easy to mix and match pieces in the spreads, and put them together in no time!

My first spread is all about my nephew enjoying Gingerbread  decorating time while experiencing Covid.   I stared by bringing a bit of red accents to the page to complement the colors in the picture.

I love the cut apart journal cards, especially when I have lots of story writing to add.   I followed the design on the other page by repeating the colors and look  of the page.

For my next page, I am mixing patterned paper with all the embellishments of the collection to document all the yummy treats of the season!

This time, I am creating a smaller title page from patterned paper, then adding a bit of interest with the embellishments of the collection.    That cute little driving Santa was perfect!

For this part of the spread, I simply framed the photos with patterned paper making sure that there was plenty leftover to add my journaling after.  A few extra small pieces complete the spread!

I hope these give you a bit of inspiration for your December documenting with the gorgeous Candy Cane Lane collection

Pinkfresh Studio December 2022 Stamp, Die, Stencil, and Hot Foil Release


Hi there!

Welcome to PINKFRESH STUDIO DECEMBER 2022 STAMP, DIE, STENCIL, AND HOT FOIL RELEASE.   Today, we are celebrating all the new and gorgeous goodies with lots of inspiration and prizes.

So many new gorgeous stamps, dies, stencils and hot foil plates that are so perfect for all sorts of crafting.   Let me show you what I have created with some of the products:

I just love the new FLORAL BORDER HOT FOIL PLATE and its coordinating elements.  This was the base for my spread.

I used Aura Foil to create about five floral borders.  Then, I used the FLORAL BORDER STENCIL and a selection of Premium inks to color all the flowers.   I used the FLORAL BORDER DIE to cut out the borders.  

I used the new DETAILED LEAF STAMP to add a bit of interest to the background.  Then cut a few of the Floral Frames die cuts into smaller pieces and started to build a larger frame of flowers around the spread.   To finish, I framed the page with a patterned paper from the Delightful collection.

I added a few more embellishments around the spread, then it was all about the title.

The new LOVE YOU THE MOST HOT FOIL PLATE was just perfect to create the title for this page. A few enamel dots and one Small Butterfly complete the spread.

 I am sure that you are all making a list of all your favorites.  Be sure to check the new release, you are going to love it all.
