February 2020 Stencils/Decals/Stand-alone Dies Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

by Lilith Eeckels

Welcome to the February 2020 Stencils/Decals/Stand-alone Dies Release Blog Hop. If you have hopped over from Amanda Baldwin‘s blog, then you are right on track. You can also start the hop over on the Altenew Card Blog.

First, let's take a quick look at the unboxing video!

This release is amazing because all of the products are so versatile. I created a layout using 3 products from the release:

  • Open Blooms 3D Die Set
  • Nesting Frames Die Set
  • Bold Greetings Die Set


My favorite element to put together was the Open Bloom flowers and leaf elements. They are super fun and easy to create and I can see them becoming a staple on my layouts. I just love a bold flower.


I played around with the Nesting Frames die-cuts to create a backdrop. To break up the solid teal cardstock, I adhered a strip of washi tape diagonally to create a grounding element.

Then, I created clusters of flowers pairing the die cut flowers with some cut out of the Painted Fantasy Washi Tape.

@lilitheeckels You can see how this layout came together in the video below or watch it in HD on YouTube.


To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $30 gift certificate to 6 lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or Altenew Scrapbook Blog by 3/3/2020 for a chance to win.

We’ll also draw a winner to receive a $15 gift certificate from the comments left on each designer’s blog on the blog hop list below. All winners will be announced on the Altenew blogs on 3/6/2020.

I am a card maker, not a scrapbooker as I come from a family that never took photos! I always thought these products were made for card makers. This blog has shown me how scrappers can also use the same products. Thank you for the education!

I enjoyed watching your videos. In the scrapbooking video I like the way you contrasted the dotted washi tape with the Altenew 3-D flowers.
And, along with teal background, pink die cuts,sentiments and photo, this page was a knock-out. Take care, and Thank you
