September 2017 Release Blog Hop Day 2 + Giveaway

by Lilith Eeckels

Welcome to the second day of our September Release Blog Hop.

Isn't this month's release amazing. There are so many wonderful products. I decided to create some non holiday themed projects: a layout and a card.

For my layout I decided to use the Halftone nesting stars die set. I cut out stars using my large big shot which can take a 8.5*11 inch sheet of paper. I then picked out a patterned paper from the Relfection Scrapbook collection and placed it beneath. A couple of white stars popped onto some foam dots add dimension and detail.


My second project is a card using the Coffee with a Spalsh stamp set. I started by stamping and embossing one of the stamps. I used the Altenew Antique Gold embossing powder and the blended some pink ink over the top. (Cherry blossom oval ink set).

There is so much inspiration to come. Our DT members and guests have created amazing projects.

For a quick run through of all of our new sets please check out the video over on YouTube.


To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to THREE lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Scrapbook Blog by Thursday, October 5th at 11:59 pm EDT for a chance to win. The winners will be announced on the Altenew Scrapbook Blog on Saturday, October 7th.
