Altenew Wildflower Paper Crafting Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

 


Hello Friends! I'm super excited to share something I haven't for quite awhile, a scrapbook page!! And once I dusted off my photo printer, cleaned the print nozzles, and found the photo paper, it came together fairly quickly with the new Wildflower paper crafting collection from Altenew.

You may have come from the blog of Kymona Tracey, but if not feel free to start at the beginning with the Altenew Blog


Although black and white photos are really popular in scrapbooking, I still love using colored photos. The only problem is, quite often the colors in my photos don't go with the color scheme of the scrapbooking products, and then I get discouraged from using them. Not the case here! So happy with how well the muted, yet fun, colors in this Wildflower Collection go with my photos.


It's such a luxury to reach into a package and pull out ephemera that instantly works with your photos. 


This layout documents the final party we hosted at my husband's grandma's and father's house before the closing that happened this week. It's been quite an emotional ride these last few months, and it couldn't have ended in a happier and more fulfilling way, with lots of guidance from above.


Framing key photos was a snap with the embellishments in this collection. And how well they go with the photo is so satisfying!


The Tall Alpha Dies call out the address our family has loved for over 60 years : ) And check out all those new little fishermen!! How cute are they?!

Big flowers are great background fillers and add to the happiness of the day. I added colored cardstock to the back of the Fun Stuff die cut to further customize the embellishment.

Two strips of the patterned paper border the main section of photos, which is all mounted on a coordinating paper in the same collection. Also wanted to point out how much I enjoyed using the retractable eraser putting this layout together. It's a nice size/shape to hold in my hand.

Since I'm mostly a card maker, I thought I'd make a card with this collection too!




I picked a few embellishments to feature on the patterned paper and cut along the pattern at the bottom.


Easy as can be! And plenty left for many more crafting sessions!

  20. It's been a long time since I've done any scrapbooking and after seeing this I need to get back to it. I'm so glad you could celebrate together the sale of the old homestead, Kelly, and then put the memories on paper before you forget what was going on. The page looks wonderful.
