Hello there. Today I am going to share with my latest layout created for Altenew. I had so much fun creating it.
I had an idea in my mind which popped in to my head when I was creating a previous project for Altenew. I used a wonderful patterned paper with lots of words and phrases. I thought it would be fun to create something similar using Altenew stamps.
This is how it turned out.

You can see the process video on the Altenew blog (click here).

A beautiful day

14 June 2016

Summer is not where in sight at the moment. It is rainy and cold at the moment but I am ok with that. The plants in the garden are thriving (as are the weeds) and everything is green and lush. Exams are well on their way so the bad weather is really a good thing as the kids are less inclined to want to play outside.

I have a layout to share with a picture taken this winter. I am not a winter person but really enjoy the beautiful scenery when it snows. I created this page with one idea in mind: LOTS OF CONTRAST. I used white, blue and black, added layers with tissue paper and a little splash of pink ink. I love the bold look.

I also had my first layout for the Altenew DT posted last week. A new video is coming this week but first here a look at the layout I created. You can find the supplies and explanations in the original post here.

Hearts galore

8 June 2016

In scrapbooking there are motifs I love more than others. I have a soft spot for circles and HEARTS. I'd put them on every layout if I could. Today I wanted to share a layout I made using this shape. 

I starte by cutting out a large heart with my cameo and cut out some smaller one. Then I played around with them layering them and filling one in with button and enamel dots. I also added some stitched hearts. They were made with Amy Tangerine stitching templates. I still use these a lot and I think they are such fun to use. 
I loved the blue patterned paper and decided it would be the main colour of the page. I really love the flow of this layout and that photo is so sweet.

Pop by later on this week as I'll be sharing my first layout for Altenew. 

Happy Scrapping.
