February 2019 Live Your Dream Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

by Lilith Eeckels

Welcome to the February 2019 Live Your Dream Scrapbook Collection Blog Hop + Giveaway! This is your starting point in the blog hop and what a HOP it is. Altenew is thrilled to release its third collection: Live Your Dream Scrapbook Collection. I love this collection so much! Zinia did a wonderful job designing it and I have a soft spot for all the floral elements as well as the colors. It is so bright and cheerful – perfect for spring, which is just around the bend.


The Live Your Dream collection contains:

  • 16 sheets of 12×12 double-sided patterned papers (2 of each/16 different designs)

  • 2 6″x12″ sheets of puffy alphabet stickers (220 pieces)

  • 2 6″x12″ sheets of chipboard stickers (38 pieces)

  • 2 6″x12″ sheets of clear stickers (31 pieces)

  • 1 pack of wood epoxy buttons (20 pieces)

  • 1 pack of die-cut cardstock embellishments (32 pieces)

It is jam-packed! So what did I create with this scrumptious collection? I made two layouts, one which I will share here and the other on my blog.

@lilitheeckels @lilitheeckelsI really wanted to create a layout with LOTS of butterflies and also show off all the colors in the collection.


  1. Cut out a bunch of butterflies. I used a cut file created by Paige Evans, who is also joining our hop.
  2. Place them over the layout in a scattered manner.
  3. Add patterned paper strips on the top edge.
  4. Pop a photo in the bottom right-hand corner.
  5. Add some embellishments:
    • Live Your Dream Chipboard Stickers
    • Doily
    • Stamped circle using the Trendy Circles Stamp Set
  6. For the finishing touch, I splattered some Lilac and Mountain Mist Ink Sprays over the layout.


@lilitheeckelsYou can see how I created the layout in the video below or watch it in HD on YouTube.
