Speaking of inspiration, here's what I've created the Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Buttercup!

"This Day" - 12x12inch scrapbook layout



Oh how precious! Those sweet pink Buttercups are errrrything!!!

Let's take a closer look at those darling blooms...


Simply stunning! 
Such a delightful bloom to frame my cherished photograph with!
I know, buttercup flowers are traditionally yellow, but I absolutely adore the wild pink ones! 
(If you haven't seen them in pink before, be sure to google them - you'll swoon!)
So I just had to craft mine in the beautiful smooth Rose Petal Gradient Cardstock 


I layered my photo and those pretty pink Buttercups onto a vellum panel which I embossed with the Floating Foliage Embossing Folder. I love how effective this looks! 


All.the.Spring.vibes!!! Love!!!
There's no denying how incredibly beautiful the 

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
I really hope my layout has inspired you, and maybe given you a different color idea for Buttecups!

Wow, what a talented list! You'll be so super inspired by the end of this hop! 

Speaking of inspiration, here's what I've created for today's release...

"Favorite Person" - 8.5 x 11inch scrapbook layout 


Oh how adorable, indeed! 


Let's take a closer look...


So sweet! 
The Simply Spring Stamp was the perfect base for layering my diamond cut photograph onto! & where there's flowers, there's always butterflies! 


The  Dovetail Butterflies are quite possibly my favorite from this release - so beautifully detailed, and perfect for all kinds of crafty projects! I hand colored mine with the purples from the Water Garden Artist Alcohol Markers (Set G) So soft and delicate!


I used the same stamp set to add my title & journaling. I just love how crisp & clear Altenew stamps are! 
For finishing touches, you'll spy two of the Cherry Blossom Slim Washi Tapes trimming the top and base of my layout. Simple, & really beautiful memory keeping! 

My second project also features the same products from this release, but with very different results...

"Enjoy Every Moment" - 12 x 12inch scrapbook layout 


Oh wow! So different from the previous page, but really stunning! 


Here's a closer view...


I just adore this bright & beautiful mixed media page! 
The Simply Spring Stamp is quite the show stopper in all it's colorful glory!


I used the Sunshine Valley Garden Artist Alcohol Markers Set F to color this floral beauty! 


The warm Spring blooms really pop against the Tide Blue Crisp Dye Ink background!


Just gorgeous! 


The detail of the Cherry Blossom Slim Washi Tape peaking through the distressed edges is a really cool look too! Just the right amount of pink to cut through the yellow and blue. Love it! 

Speaking of blue, how about a 'sea change'?....

"We Sea You" - 12 x 12inch scrapbook layout 


Oh.my.heart! 
I can't even begin to tell you how much I adore this ocean vibes page! 
Or how awesome the  Sea Shore Slim Washi Tape Linear Pathway die cut alphas are!?! Such a fun way to incorporate more washi tapes into your designs! 


Here's a better look at this page...


The Sweet Ginkgo Stamp is really somethin'! 
So pretty stamped in the Deep Blue Seas Crisp Dye Inks


So detailed, and just a bit special, even if I do say so myself! 


It really is a gorgeous stamp set! 


Just awesome!!!

And here's a sneaky peek at just one more project I may have created with this release...



I'll be sharing this one as part of a fun video hop happening on the 14th! 

Keep your eye on the Altenew YT channel for more, or better yet
