April 2020 Stamps/Dies/Stencils/Stamping Mat/Sequins Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

by Lilith Eeckels

Welcome to the April 2020 Stamps/Dies/Stencils/Stamping Mat/Sequins Release Blog Hop + Giveaway! If you have hopped over from TaeEun Yoos blog, then you are right on track. You can start the blog hop over on the Altenew Card Blog.

Before we start, here’s a quick unboxing video to give you a quick look through all of our new products:

In today’s release, there are so many lovely products. For this first project, I used the Confetti Stencil, Precious Blooms Stamp Set, and Envelope Art Stamp Set.

The Envelope Art Stamp Set is perfect for creating custom and unique envelopes but you can also use it on other projects. I used the doodle flower border to add detail to the sides of my journal.

How to:

  1. Stamp the floral border from the Envelope Art Stamp Set onto either side of your travel journal.
  2. Stamp three pink hearts using the heart from the Envelope Art Stamp Set.
  3. Add some confetti hearts, stars, and dots using the Confetti Stencil. I left some white space so that the pages wouldn’t look too busy.
  4. Doodle around the pink hearts.
  5. Add your photo.
  6. Cut out some floral embellishments. I used a paper from the Live Your Dream Collection.
  7. Add some stamped sentiments from the Precious Blooms Stamp Set.
  8. Highlight the edges with some washi tape from the Sweet Dreams Washi Set.
  9. As a final touch, add some journaling strips and doodle around the edges and jot down your memory.

I love how easy it was to create this spread. Using a stencil in a travel journal is really fun and, as the pages are thinner than usual cardstock, the blended ink doesn’t bleed through like paint would.

You can see how I created this spread in the video below or watch it in HD on YouTube.

Thanks Altenew. I haven’t tried scrapbooking or journaling – yet – I am a card maker. I do like the warmth of this journal page and can see your son as an adult sharing your caring words with his children. Such a nice way for families to see what generations thought and felt. I know I enjoy the pictures of the past and wish someone was alive who could tell me about the events and feelings associated with the picture. LOVE this idea!
