Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Orion Geranium Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($200 in total prizes)


Hello there!

Welcome to ALTENEW CRAFT-A-FLOWER: ORION GERANIUM RELEASE BLOG HOP+GIVEAWAY. You are arriving from Michelle Short's blog.  A list of all the participants is available at the bottom of this post for your convenience.

It is time to celebrate the new CRAFT-A-FLOWER: ORION GERANIUM Layering Die Set.  This is such a fun and beautiful  flower, and the perfect size for documenting in my journal...

I wanted to match the colors and feel of the photo, so I chose a piece of navy cardstock for the base of the journal page, then used Gradient cardstock in Cherry Blossom and New Purple to cut all the CAF: ORION GERANIUM flowers

I decided to set two clusters at the bottom and top of the page, combining the two tones of CAF diecuts.  

I cut a few of the CAF: ORION GERANIUM leaves from green cardstock. I used  these as the base for the flower clusters. The contrast of the colors is just perfect to complement the photo.

I used the Handwritten Hello die set to create the title of the page.  I just love how easy and effortless this new layout with the CAF: ORION GERANIUM came together.

  24. Few Months ago, I felt so depressed, got frustrated dealing with bad credits, but reaching out to HACK VANISH via Phone: +1 (747) 293-8514 and Email: HACK VANISH (@) GMAIL. COM gave my life a new meaning, after I found him credible through positive reviews read on some credit blogs, in a twinkle of an eye, this great hacker restored my credit score from 509 to 784 across all 3 major credit bureaus, evictions and repossession cleared, my LexisNexis and Chex system fixed respectively, some days later, I received an E-mail confirming the approval of my home loan, it was quite amazing because I never thought it was possible. Today, I can confidently say 2021 was an exceptional year for my husband and I as we now own a new home and a brand-new SUV courtesy HACK VANISH, I would definitely recommend him to anyone in need of a genuine Hacker.
