Altenew Winter Essentials Stand-alone Dies Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

 


Hi there!

Welcome to Altenew's Winter Essentials Stand-Alone Dies Release Blog Hop + Giveaway.  You are arriving from Vicki Pappaioannou's blog.  A list of all of today's participants is available at the bottom of this post for your convenience.


Today Altenew is releasing a new set of stand alone dies that are amazing!!  These are perfect for all sorts of paper crafting, Holiday cards and memory keeping.  Let me show you what I have created...


My first project features the new LACY PANEL DIE , ESSENTIAL STRIPS DIE SET, and the LINEAR PATHWAY ALPHA SOLID DIE SET in a new entry for my Family Album.   I chose a paper from the Reflection collection for the background, and used the Alpha die set to cut part of my title along the left side of my page.  Once i added the picture, I completed my title with chipboard alphas from the Enjoy Your Ride collection.



I created a LACY PANEL die cut (from the same paper) and used it to create a pocket, and stitched in place.  I used the Terrific Tags die set to create the basis for my picture and journal tags.  Finally, I used the ESSENTIAL STRIPS DIE SET to create a small sentiment as a subtitle for the pocket.



I love the new LINEAR PATHWAY SOLID AND OUTLINE BUNDLE DIE SET.  It creates the perfect title in a fun and clean way. I decided to use the die set to create the title for this new layout.   To start, I pulled papers from the Celebrate collection and then used the ESSENTIAL SENTIMENT STRIPS DIE SET to cut a few of the strips and form the background for the page.   I simply glued them to the edge of the paper, making sure that I centered the title in the page.



Since I had a few pictures of my son's workout routine, I decided to create a small interactive flap to house all the pictures on the page.   I simply added a few of the ESSENTIAL SENTIMENT STRIPS Die cuts as subtitles for the picture.  Easy peasy!



If you have seen my work before, then you might know that I do lots of daily documenting.  So, I am always trying to find ways to create quick pages in my albums.  So, the new LAYERED GIFT Tags were perfect to create simple one page layouts in a jiffy!


I pulled the new LAYERED GIFT TAG - PRESENT DIE SET to create a few of the die cuts from cardstock.  I layered this as cascading down the page, and added the picture of my little sister's virtual birthday party.  A simple title made from alphas and one of the Essential Sentiments Strip die cuts completes the page.


For the other side of the spread, I chose the LAYERED TAG - HEART DIE SET to create the background and part of the title for the spread.   I cut the two tags from different shades of the same color family and layered them, so that I could nestle the picture within them.  A few extra decorations complete the page.    Simple, colorful and easy!


Of course, I had to create a few cards with some of these amazing dies.  For this card, I glued paper strips to a piece of paper, and then used the HAPPY HOLIDAYS SCRIPT DIE SET to cut the sentiment.  I created the card panel and attached the sentiment and covered it completely with glossy accents.  A few jewels and a bow die cut from the MANTEL DECOR - WINTER DIE SET completes the card. 



For  my next card, I used the LAYERED TAGS - CAKE DIE SET  to cut create the die cuts from white cardstock and vellum. I layered them together, then attached them to a card panel made with colorful paper strips.  A few sequin complete my card... super CAS, and I love it!


I am not a card maker, but there are those times when you want a special card for someone, and the best choice is always to craft it.  This is what I did for this card using the new LAYERED TAGS - ONESIE DIE SET .



I created the card panel with the Woven Stencil,  a bit of ink and Altenew's small Ink Blending tools so that it had an ombre effect.  I used the die set and cut the detailed die from white cardstock. I used a piece of yellow paper to back the letter space, and attached it with foam adhesive to the panel.  I use the Layered Floral Element die set to cut a few flowers and clustered them around the onesie.  Just love how it turned out! and so did my cousin!!!


I hope these have inspired you to check all the  new dies available, I am yet to  use the rest of the release, but there are ideas brewing in my head for them already.  Now it is time for the fun part of this blog hop:
