Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Poppy Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


Hi there!

Welcome to Altenew's Craft-A-Flower: POPPY Release Blog Hop + Giveaway.  You are arriving checking Norine's awesome project.  A list of all the participants is available at the bottom of the page for your convenience.

This month's Craft-A-Flower: POPPY is amazing! This new die set is just so detailed, but easy to put together with beautiful results.  Such a great design can be used for many formats of paper crafting.  I decided to used them to document a story in my Family album.

I started my layout by ink blending some Misty Mountain ink to the edges of the page.  While the ink settled, I used the CAF die to create all the flowers in the layout.

I used three of the blooms ( on each side of the page) to create a border atop the ink blended background.   I added a few splatters of the diluted ink, just to accent the background color.

Once the pictures were added.  I used the Celebrate us stamp set to add a few sentiments around the pictures.  Just love how easily this came together.
