This new release is so versatile and will stretch your creativity.  Let me show you…

Traveler's Notebooks:


This Traveler's Notebook layout features the new Creative Cutouts- Moroccan Mosaic, The Alphabet Stencil and Geometric Landscape Stencil; as well as the new Enamel Dots collection in a fun and colorful way.


@Altenew_ the Alphabet stencil, warm and cozy enamel dots- LEt's chat Tn_by Nathalie DeSousa

The Alphabet Stencil is one that will quickly become a staple in your collection. It can easily transform your backgrounds and create titles with just a bit of ink.

Pair the bold letters of the stencil with the movement of the Mega Brush Alpha Stamp set; then, add pops of color with the new enamel dots and you can easily transform your pocket pages.

@altenew_Featherly Stencil, Trellis Stencil, Shades of Purple enamel dots, Sea Shore enamel dots - TN by Nathalie DeSousa

Pairing stencils in contrasting colors works for this Traveler's Notebook spread.  The Trellis Stencil creates a tone-on-tone background, while the Feathery Stencil in soft purple brings color and contrast behind the pictures.

A few feathers from the Mini Delight: Strength set and pops of color from the Shades of Purple enamel dots and Sea Shore enamel dots bring it all together.


@Altenew_ Creative Cutouts- Moroccan Mosaic, Serenity collection Enamel dots

The new Creative Cutouts are the perfect addition to large scrapbook layout, but also can be used to create cards without  having to bring out your die cutting machines.

@altenew_ creative cutouts- Moroccan Mosaic, Serenity collection enamel dots_ card by Nathalie DeSousa

This card features pieces from the Creative Cutouts- Moroccan Mosaic on the background which pops the cluster of flowers (Watercolor Roses Stamp set).  A few enamel dots (Warm and Cozy enamel dots, Tropical Forest Enamel Dots, and Sea Shore Enamel Dots) and a sentiment from the Leaf Canopy stamp set complete the card.

@altenew_Cloud Scene stencil, Mountain Scene stencil, Tropical Forest Enamel dots- Card by Nathalie DeSousa

The new Cloud Scene Stencil and Mountain Scene Stencil yield perfect backgrounds for your cards.  Whether you combine them or use them separately, they will create a striking scene.

The Altenew Crisp Inks and Large Ink Blending tool is all you need to create your own scene. My choice to frame the scene inside the card (Soda Top Nesting die set) keeps the focus on the scene. A few Tropical Forest Enamel dots and a sentiment from the Grateful Heart stamp set complete the card.

I just watched your video Nathalie. I love how you used these products especially the way you made your hearts. I have to scraplift the idea when I get the stencil.

Megan Harrington July 20, 2020 - 6:37 am

I’m loving the colours of the enamel dots in the Serenity release and for me, the Feathery Stencil is a ‘must have’ piece. I’m hoping they’ll be readily available in Australia as I’m so drawn to so many pieces in this new release! They can all be used in cards, Project Life, Scrapbooking – everything. I love what Nathalie has done here and can’t wait to see what the others have done, especially Vicky and Mindy. I’m excited ???

Laura July 20, 2020 - 7:43 am

Love all the new products! ?❤️❤️

Love the pages. the stencils add a cool effect to the hearts1

Judy Price July 21, 2020 - 6:49 pm

OK, scrapbooking has moved up on my list! Besides the fact I have a TON of pictures to go through (which is probably why I haven’t done anything yet)! I really like the large cutouts that can be used in scrapbooking – of any size – or cardmaking, just by cutting them up accordingly. The moroccan stencil would be perfect for an accent wall in my hobby room update! I really like what YOU did with them, too! Your work is always a joy to see. Thank you for sharing!

Melissa Friedrich July 21, 2020 - 7:33 pm

Beautiful journal pages, LOVE the stencil backgrounds, and the geometric stencil on the hearts in the travel journal is my fave.
