Altenew July 2017 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

by Lilith Eeckels

Welcome to the third stop for the Altenew July 2017 Release Blog Hop. So many new products and so much inspiration. I created three layouts for the occasion. You can see two of them here and a third on my blog. If you have come from Jennifer McGuire's blog, you are right on track.

As always there are amazing prizes up for grabs here and on the blog hop participants' blogs.


To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to FIVE lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog or/and Scrapbook Blog by Thursday, July 27th at 11:59 pm EDT for a chance to win. The winners will be announced on the Altenew Card/Scrapbook blogs on Sunday, July 30th.

Picking a favorite stamp is nearly impossible as they are all fabulous. I do love the Parrot Paradise set which I paired with the Extended Family and the My Family set to create a simple layout. I cut out a circle as template and then used the Green Fields oval set to create a blended color scheme. The I picked out some leaf stamps from the Parrot Paradise set and stamped those in the circle.

For my second layout, I used the Totally Tropical Stamp set. I used a water coloring technique with some spray inks, gelatos, and neocolors2.

You can see how the layout came together on YouTube on HD or in the video just below.


Your next stop is the amazing Kristina Werner.



Have fun hopping along with the Altenew July 2017 Release Blog Hop and have a lovely day.

I really wish more companies would do this, show the cardmaking supplies on scrapbooking layouts since so many of us do both!! I think it’s an awesome idea. Sometimes there are specific stamp and/or die sets that I purchase knowing that I’m going to use them on cards and in my scrapbooking. So thank you for having this blog and doing pages for us!! Keep up the great work and sharing such awesome samples!!!

Allene Frederick July 21, 2017 - 12:21 pm
