Altenew August 2022 Marvelous Monthly Series Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in Total Prizes!)


Hello there!

Welcome to ALTENEW AUGUST 2022 MARVELOUS MONTHLY SERIES RELEASE BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY.  You are arriving from Teri Wilson's blog.  A list of all the participants is available at the bottom of this post for your convenience.


All the new ALTENEW subscription products have been revealed, and this month there are 5 beautiful designs that are sure to get you inspired and ready to create.  Let me show you what I have created 

Let's start with the new BUILD-A-GARDEN: DAFFODIL DELIGHT ADD-ON DIE BUNDLE.  This new stamp/stencil set with the die add-on is perfect for all sorts of projects. I am using to detail a new entry in my Family Journal.

It was so easy to create the BUILD-A-GARDEN: DAFFODIL DELIGHT  blooms, and then clustered them at the bottom of the spread.   A few sentiments complete the spread!

For this spread, I reached for the the new CRAFT YOUR LIFE PROJECT KIT: MAGNOLIA & BLOOMS. This new stamp/stencil/embossing folder/die bundle is amazing!  The stamp is so detailed you can easily use it as  a background and embellishment at the same time!

But having the option of coloring the embossed image with the stencil and then cutting it out makes it extra versatile.   And then there is the sentiments in the stamp set... just perfection!

I love the PAINT-A-FLOWER: WOOD ANEMONE stamp set. This large bloom is just the ideal size for customizing with your choice of coloring medium.   This time, I am using Artist Markers to color my blooms for this pocket page spread.

I am pairing the color images with stamped outlines of the same stamp set.  This helps to showcase the details in the flowers so much more, plus work great with my black and white photos.

Let's talk about the new CRAFT-A-FLOWER: OPEN PEONY Layering Die Set... just beautiful! and so easy to put together.  

I chose to cut all my pieces from white cardstock, then used Altenew Crisp Inks to add color to the bloom.   I paired it with a simple sentiment, and voila!

One of my favorite releases are always the Mini Delight subscription, and this time the new MINI DELIGHT: LIKE A STAR Stamp/Die Set is just magical.

I simply followed the instructions to create a soft rainbow of star balloons.  I tied them together to a sentiment tag and then added a few sprinkles to finish this card,

Now it is your turn to select your monthly subscription product.  Remember you can always subscribe to Altenew's subscription program to secure your set to arrive at home!
