Hey there crafty friends! Welcome to the Altenew Scrapbook Collection blog hop! I am so excited to be taking part in this blog hop!
I will be using the beautiful Reflection Scrapbook collection from Altenew.
This kit has everything you need to create gorgeous projects!
Today, I will be sharing a layout I made using the Reflection scrapbook collection.
First, I backed a heart cut file with pattern paper from the collection. I chose colors that matched my photo, and I really love the water color look of these papers! I added some machine stitching to create texture.
I layered some pattern paper under my photo. I also did a bit of stamping for my layout. I gold heat embossed a row of flowers from the Hello Sunshine stamp set on a piece of white cardstock, and layered that under my photo as well. I also stamped some flowers from the Painted Flowers stamp set, then I cut them out using the coordinating dies. I used those florals on the bottom right and the top left of my photo, layering and tucking them in front of and behind my photo.
Beautiful is the title of my layout, which shows my sentiment to the photo. I used the scripted acetate piece for my title. I also added two acetate butterflies. I love the way the bold black pops against my layout. I finished off by making a tab out of pattern paper, and adding my date using the date stamp included in the kit. I included the “BEST DAY” sticker to add another bold black element. I adhered the journaling that I printed off from the computer and cut into strips. Some gold watercolor splatters and a little thread, and my layout is done!
