October 2017 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

by May Sukyong Park

Welcome to the October 2017 Release Blog Hop. Today we'll be sharing loads of inspiration using the new products. The new collection is swoon worthy and the embossing powders will not disappoint. I tried them all and they are amazing. We have released our own embossing ink which is perfect to use with the embossing powders.

The winner of the scrapbook collection picked from our Sneak Peak post is:

Please contact Altenew at winner@altenew.com with in the subject line Winner of Our Family Scrapbook collection from the Sneak Peek post.

Our embossing powders match the collection perfectly and are a great addition to the Altenew inks.


I have created several projects for this release. I will show two here and another one on my personal blog.

For my first layout I used the platinum embossing powder with the outline stamp from the Anemone stamp set. I heat embossed the image and then colored the flowers with some crisp inks.

I lined the flowers up and added some green leaves to break up the pink and teal colors. The washi tape was perfect for cutting through the harsh lines created by the two patterned papers and it adds detail as well. I also used the washi to create some butterfly embellishments.

You see in the video below how the layout came together.


For my second layout I opted for some fussy cutting and lots of layering. There is a second video showing how I created it.

I used the Sweet friend stamp and die set for the frame and added some black detailed words as well around the floral arrangement. The colors in this collection are fabulous and what I really love about the Altenew SCrapbook collections it that it is so easy to pick out inks as the collection was created with the inks and other products in mind. This is such a time saver.

If you want to see how I created this layout, all you have to do it watch the video below or in HD on YouTube.
