Altenew August 2017 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

23 August 2017


Welcome to the August 2017 release blog hop. If you have come from Laura Bassen 's blog, you are right on track.

I love this month's release as a lot of the products are FABULOUS items for scrapbooking.

To showcase the products I created this layout. I used the following sets: Charmed, Sweet Friend and Point it Out.




The layout only has two strips of patterned paper from the Reflection Scrapbook collection and I also added some enamel dots from the Card kit. All the other elements are made with stamps and ink.



You can see how the layout came together in HD on Youtube or just watch it below:

July Citrus Twist kit and just for fun ...

19 August 2017

I had a wonderful time designing for Citrus Twist but decided not to reapply. I love working for Altenew and I felt I wasn't able to do both at the same time. I made this layout just before leaving on vacation and completely forgot to share it. I love the bright colours and think they match the goofy photo perfectly. 




The following two layouts I made just for fun. They really are the best layouts because the whole process is completely free. I love making my assignments but there are always constraints to take into account. When I scrapbook for fun I just go with the flow.





I'm currently working on a new blog schedule that will start in September. I hope to have at least one post a week and will be adding a couple of new themed items and challenges.

Thank you for stopping by and if you have anything you'd like to see here just pop it in the comment section.

Happy Scrapping

Altenew July 2017 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

20 July 2017


Welcome. If you have come from Kathy Racoosin  you are right on track. The July release from Altenew is AMAZING. Every month I am in awe of the new products and picking a favorite is near to impossible. BUT I must say I am in love with the new ink colors which you can see below.


I also love the Blooming Bouquet set which I chose to use for my layout with the My Family Set.





Here is the layout I created. I started by making the background and then stamped the larger image from the Blooming Bouquet set. Then I colored it in.
You can see how I created the layout in the video below or on YouTube.

Swirlcards layouts

Hi there everyone. Today I'm going to share two layouts I created for Swirlcards. They are a French Brand and have gorgeous products. The first layout was made with their Santorini collection, a lovely summer collection with blue, white and yellows.






I also used the LOVE tag which is my favorite at the moment.

For the next layout I used lots of labels from several collections and mixed in some stars. You can see how the layout came together in the video which is below the images.

Citrus Twist July Layout

18 July 2017

Hi there everyone. Most of my creating is for Altenew and even though I LOVE my Citrus Twist Kits I won't be reapplying for the DT. If you are interested they are having a DT call.  You can find out more about it HERE.


Here is my first layout with the July Scrapbook kit.




I used my Silhouette to cut out the title and then kept it clean and linear.  Love the way it turned out.

I'll be back tomorrow to share some Swirlcards projects.

Happy scrapping

Altenew Scrapbook Collection Blog Hop + Giveaway

12 July 2017


Welcome to the Altenew Scrapbook Collection blog hop. If you are following the hop you have come from Anna Komenda blog. I will be sharing a second layout which I created for this special occasion. You can see the first one on the Altenew Scrapbook blog.

Today we are focusing on our Scrapbook collection, the first one to be released by Altenew and not the last ;). 
Here is a look at the collection: 

For my layout I used the leftover stars from my first layout (which you can see on the Altenew Scrapbook blog). I then punched out more stars and arranged them around the the circle I drew. I only added some Shimmer mist splatters.




You can watch how it came together here below or on YouTube:




Don't forget we have some offers at the moment.

Citrus Twist June layouts

5 July 2017

Now you would think that when you are on holiday you'd have lots of time to blog and craft. Nope. I have been busy getting the two eldest ready for their summer camp in the South of France and I got the CLEANING bug and had to sort through and clean the whole house (and garden).

We'll be leaving on holiday soon so I'm also creating loads of projects to have those ready while I'm away so blogging has been put on a side line (and I also still doing some school work like ordering books and presenting new tools to the principals). So as usual I'm busy.

I did find the time today to blog about my June layouts for Citrus Twist kits (they are having a DT call if you're interested).

Here are the four layouts I made.
