With the formalities out of the way, let's take a look at what I've created for this release!

First up is this 8.5" x 11" scrapbook page of my darling girl...


Sigh, so super pretty! 


Let's take a closer look at this gorgeous & girly page....


Those Creative Cut Outs: Nested Wreath pieces are errrrrything!!! SO good!
I couldn't resist hand coloring some of them with my Altenew Watercolor 36 Pan Set. 
I used shades of blue & teal to coordinate with the Altenew Teal Shadow Washi Tape, and to compliment the background colors in my sweet girl's photograph. I used the smallest wreath as a frame for my photo, which I then backed with a fussy cut floral from the Summer Garden 6 x 6 Paper Pack. I cut apart one of the larger wreath pieces to create the appearance of a vine, travelling down my page. For finishing touches I added a sprinkling of the Shades of Purple Enamel Dots - so pretty!


Ga, ga, gor-jus!!!

Here's another memory keeper's delight featuring the new Celebrate scrapbook collection...


Oh how beautiful!


Let's take a closer look....


Those fussy cut florals combined with the Nested Wreath pieces are just too lovely for words!!! 


I used The Alphabet Stencil & a white gel pen to create those sweet XO's - so simple, & so effective!


The Warm & Cozy Enamel Dots adorn the wreaths beautifully, and I used the Tropical Forest Enamel Dots to accent my treasured photo! Perfect!

Time to share a couple clean & simple cards! 
First is this soft and sweet number....


So delicate and divine! 



Beautiful card creating made super quick & easy with the Geometric Landscape Stencil! 

My second card is a lil inky fun....



La la LOVE this!!!



That Trellis Stencil is just superb! I inked mine up with the Deep Blue Seas Mini Ink Cubes to create a striking background for my card. So stunning!

And there you have it! 
Beautiful creating with the fabulous new releases from Altenew! 


Thanks so much for visiting, I really hope my creations inspired you!
