Wonderful Layout | Altenew | Video

I am catching up on all the Altenew layouts I have done.  This layout documents one of the many beautiful meals we had on the Disney cruise.  AH-mazing!  Felt so spoiled and we never ever go anywhere nice for dinner, so this was such a treat.

Food layouts are not something I do all the time.  I usually save them for Project Life or my Memory Planner, but since this was such a pretty dinner, I wanted to do a layout.

The dinnerware inspired me to use the Tulip stamps from Altenew for this layout.  I created a grid background from the outline of the tulip stamp, then added stitching.  For the bottom, I added the stem of the tulip stamp and the little flourish from the Calligraphy stamp set, all inspired by the dinnerware.

I have a video for this layout you can watch it here on YouTube or below.  For details and links to Altenew products, please visit the Altenew blog here.  Thank you for stopping by!

Taking A Break Layout | Altenew

This is probably one of my favorite layouts.  The everyday life photos with the stamps and inks just all went together so well here.

I don't have a video for this layout, but I have links to all the Altenew products I used on the Altenew blog here.

How awesome is this date?  It is a stamp and one of my favorites from Altenew.  I love the modern look.

Be sure to stop over at the Altenew blog for links to all their product I used.  Thank you for stopping by and happy hump day!

Perfectly Wonderful Layout | Altenew | Video

Stopping in to share another layout I did for Altenew in July.  I challenged myself to use these photos.  There's lots of green, some were taking as my husband caught the frisbie as I threw it to him, so they are not the best photos.

I also, for the first time, did layered stamping with the Vintage Flowers stamps!  My eyes are not the best, so for me, it is a little tricky, but so addicting!  I love the effect from the layers!

I really love how this layout came together.  Will be a layout I will be happy I did when I look back on it.

You can watch the video here on YouTube or below.  For links to all the Altenew products I used, please visit the Altenew blog here.  Thank you so much for stopping by!!

Keep Swimming Layout | Altenew | Video

I always forget about my blog when posting work.  So catching up on that now.  Have really had so much fun with the Altenew stamps, inks, and dies.  It's like a whole new creative world.  I created some repeating patterns with the Simple Shapes stamps and then cut them to form a grid.

I used a different ink to create a nice colorful layout with texture.  And for my title, I used the Modern Deco Alpha stamp set.

Now I just need the MISTI tool to help me with projects like this in the future.  Ha!  This was a lot of fun to do, and so many possibilities with the color and these stamps.

You can watch the video from YouTube here or below.  All the Altenew products are listed on the Altenew blog here.  Thank you so much for stopping by!!

Gossamer Blue August Kit Reveal

I have been meaning to blog this, but never did!  I loved these kits more than I thought I would.  Even though there was some themed things in the kits, I found lots of ways to use them and actually some of my favorites!  So here is what I created with the August Kits.  Grab those while you still can.  September sneaks are already up!

Yes, we adopted two new cats!  Wasn't planning on it!  They have kept me pretty distracted to say the least.  Boo is 4 and Lily is 1.  It has been about a month now and we are still in the introducing stage. I think with so much they have to adjust to, they need a little more time to feel safe and secure.  Mostly Boo since she is older and her original family had surrendered her.  Makes me so sad.  They are both very very sweet and great with Emma.  So I'm hoping they can at least tolerate each other in the near future ;)

I'm still catching up with my Memory Planner.  So a little behind, but love all the stickers in the so well with planners!

I journaled about the crappy week under the large photo.  Something I would rather forget.

I will catch up when I can.  Hope everyone is having a great week!  Thank you for stopping by!
