Now, time to share what I've created with the beautiful 

"Garden Story"

Oh me, oh my! Does it get any prettier than this?! 
The Build-A-Flower: Cora Louise Peony Layering Stamp & Die Set is clearly perfect for card making, but I think using these products to scrapbook with is even better! 
Wow - just look at those pretty blooms! 

Here's a closer look at this fresh and pretty, floral page...

And if this is how we're starting the 2021 Build-A-Flower releases, 
I can't wait to see what Altenew has planned for the rest of the year - wow! 
(& totally why you need to start a subscription HERE)

Let's focus on my project for a moment...

Simple floral layering with a fresh and contemporary color scheme - SO good!

You'll spy that I stamped up the Cora Louise Peony outline in Permanent Black Crisp Ink, before layering the bloom details with pretty inks from the recently released Martian Terrain Mini Ink Cubes
I just love how rich and intense the Altenew inks are! 
To enhance my page, I used coordinating pattern paper & embellishments from my favorite Enjoy The Ride Scrapbook Collection. I also added a sprinkling of Enamel Dots:Warm and Cozy for finishing touches. 
Such a simple design & yet, so fresh and pretty for my sweet teen! Love it!

Here's a more detailed close up.... 

Sigh! Absolutely swoon worthy!

I think you'll agree that the Build-A-Flower: Cora Louise Peony Layering Stamp & Die Set is simply exquisite!
