December 2018 Markers and Embellishments Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

by Lilith Eeckels

Welcome to our December 2018 Markers and Embellishments Release Blog Hop! If you have hopped over from Nathalie DeSousa‘s blog then you are right on track. You can start the hop over on the Altenew Card Blog.

Today’s release is such a fun release, especially for scrapbookers. Embellishments are a key element in scrapbooking and having a choice of fun elements makes the creating part so much easier. My favorite elements are butterflies and flowers and boy, did I get spoiled with this release! The new Artist Markers make the release even more fun and offer lots of possibilities.

For my first project, I created a 12 by 12 layout using lots of the new acetate pieces from the Butterfly Acetate Die Cuts pack.

I paired them with some Watercolor Butterfly Cardstock Stickers and a wood veneer word from the Sweet Hearts Adhesive Wood Veneers.


@lilitheeckelsHOW TO:

  1. Pick a background paper.
  2. Take some white 8.5″ by 11″ cardstock and layer the photo and some patterned paper. I used a 6″ by 6″ paper from the Celebrate You Card Kit.
  3. Place a row of acetate elements and layer the Leaf Cover Die below. I colored it using some yellow tinted Artist Markers.
  4. Place a wood veneer as a title on top of the row of acetate circles. You can color them using the Artist Markers or add some sparkle using embossing powder.

@lilitheeckels @lilitheeckelsOne of the large butterflies from the Watercolor Butterfly Cardstock Stickers adds a bit of detail and draws the eye towards the photo.

This is such a beautiful way to embellish your layouts and I really like the combination of acetate butterflies and wooden word. I am wondering though, how you adhere the butterflies so that the adhesive doesn’t show through.
