Hello there!

Welcome to ALTENEW CRAFT-A-FLOWER:CALIFORNIA GIANTS RELEASE BLOG HOP+GIVEAWAY.  You are arriving from Dana Joy's blog.  A list of all the participants is available at the bottom of this  post.  

Today's new CRAFT-A-FLOWER:CALIFORNIA GIANTS die set is amazing, and so perfect for any types of paper crafting.   I couldn't resist, and used the die on my gratitude journal...

I used the new CAF: CALIFORNIA GIANTS to cut flowers from soft color cardstocks - I wanted something that will contrast the colors in the photos.

I made two large cluster of flowers at the two edges of the notebook.   I added my journal next to the large cluster on the left of the notebook.

I nestled my photo on the flower cluster on the right of  the page.   The title was created with the sentiment that is included in the CAF: CALIFORNIA GIANTS and the Fine Alphabet Die Set.  

I love how much the new CAF: CALIFORNIA GIANTS add to the layout.  Be sure to check the subscription program, so you can secure your die delivery each month at your doorstep.

  1. what a beautiful Layout, just love it

    1. My name is Ashley Vivian, Am here to share a testimony on how Dr Raypower helped me. After a 1/5 year relationship with my boyfriend, he changed suddenly and stopped contacting me regularly, he would come up with excuses of not seeing me all the time. He stopped answering my calls and my sms and he stopped seeing me regularly. I then started catching him with different girls several times but every time he would say that he loved me and that he needed some time to think about our relationship. But I couldn't stop thinking about him so I decided to go online and I saw so many good talks about this spell caster called Dr Raypower and I contacted him and explained my problems to him. He cast a love spell for me which I use and after 24 hours, my boyfriend came back to me and started contacting me regularly and we moved in together after a few months and he was more open to me than before and he started spending more time with me than his friends. We eventually got married and we have been married happily for 3 years with a son. Ever since Dr Raypower helped me, my partner is very stable, faithful and closer to me than before. You can also contact this spell caster and get your relationship fixed Email: or see more reviews about him on his website: WhatsApp: +1 (424) 330-8109

    Help me thank for helping me get my ex husband back to me and my family. This great powerful spiritual man restored my sorrow to happiness. My husband left me some years ago for another woman and they both planned to get married. I am so surprised he just came back to me one cool afternoon on Saturday June, begging and crying for me to take him back and to forgive him for breaking up our marriage home and forsaking me and the children. Dr Omokpo is a true spiritualist savior . He brought my husband back”
