Altenew really do look after us!

With the formalities taken care of, here are my inspirational projects....

First up is this gorgeous mixed media scrapbook page, 


Oh how pretty!!!

That Tranquility Rose Stamp is errrrything!!! 
I couldn't resist painting up an array of those florals with my Altenew watercolors - let's take a closer look...

Oh how lovely! This stamp set really lends itself beautifully to hand coloring - lots of opportunity for tonal work and details. LOVE! 

I just love how the softness of the Tranquility Roses contrasts perfectly against the dark Enjoy The Ride Scrapbook Collection paper. So stunning! 

You'll spy the pretty Delicate Polka Dots Washi Tape behind my sweet girl's photograph, as well as tucked in beneath those gorgeous blooms...

This washi tape is so super cute and would be perfect for so many different kinds of projects!

I think you'll agree that the Tranquility Roses Stamp & Die Bundle, and the Delicate Polka Dots Washi Tape are absolute 'must-haves' from this release!

My second project is another pretty mixed media page, 

Swoon! Sooooooo beauti-fall indeed!

Like my previous page, I have opted to stamp my Inspirational Quotes leafy flourishes with permanent black ink, and then paint with my favorite Altenew watercolors. The results are incredible!

Whoa! Seriously ga-ga-gorjus!!!
I enhanced those pretty stamped flourishes by layering them with similarly colored cardstock die cuts, which I also created from the Inspirational Quotes Stamp & Die Set. 

Oh! Just divine!!!

The Inspirational Quotes sentiments are perfect for cardmaking, but they also work really well for layouts too! 
Oh, and how cute is that Delicate Stripes Washi Tape? Perfect for trimming all our crafty projects with! 

Next up, I am showcasing one of our gorgeous new ink cube bundles with a sweet thankyou card...

Oh-so soft and pretty !!!

Here's a closer look...

Oh-my-heart! Those colors are beyond beautiful! 

Here's another card using the same inks, but with a really different look...

Wow! This is so elegant! 

To make the embossed Ornamental Feature more noticeable, I have used my Altenew small ink blending tool with the new Martian Terrain Inks. Here's a better look at it...

Such a simple card (& technique) but such a beautiful outcome!

The Altenew 3D Embossing Folders never disappoint! Amazing results every.single.time!

And lastly, I'm sharing a lil craft room organizing inspiration with the fabulous new, 

Organized, practical & beautiful? Oh, yes please! 
The new Craft Room Organization Decal Set is perfect for creating an orderly, but still very pretty, creative studio! 

Those florals are so super pretty! And, because they're decals they are completely removeable & reusable - yay!

Such a cute, and functional work station! 

I couldn't resist using the florals to decorate my handy travel sewing machine too....

Now I really look the part when I attend a crop! Love it!

Simple storage ideas, made oh so beautiful thanks to the new Craft Room Organization Decal Set!

I hope my projects have inspired you today!
