Altenew Build-A-Garden: Magnificent Branch Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($200 total prizes)


hello there!

Welcome ALTENEW BUILD-A-GARDEN: MAGNIFICENT BRANCH RELEASE BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY.  You are arriving from my friend Laurie Willison's blog.  A list of all the participants is available at the bottom of this post for your convenience.  

The new BUILD-A-GARDEN: MAGNIFICENT BRANCH bundle (the products can only be purchased  in a bundle) is amazing!!  As a memory keeper, the large size and movement in the design is perfect for layouts, but as  paper crafting, I can see the immense possibilities of the bundle.  Let me better show you what I created

Have I mentioned that I love the large size of the new BAG-MAGNIFICENT BRANCH...  I was able  to stamp an entire border of a layout in one pass!

Since I am using the stamp to create a double 6x8 layout, I used extra pieces of the BAG-MAGNIFICENT BRANCH  to complete the entire upper and lower edges of the layout.

Coloring the image was so easy with the coordinated BAG- MAGNIFICENT BRANCH Layering Coloring Stencil. It was easy to color the borders ins a short amount of time (there are a few inky spots outside of the flowers, and I love the handmade feel of them!).

I love the new BUILD-A-GARDEN:  MAGNIFICENT BRANCH bundle. Just perfect for any type of paper crafting project!  Remember to check the subscription program for this new Altenew product ( so that you can secure your monthly set)


Altenew is celebrating the release with a generous Giveaway!
