Altenew Scrapbook Collection Blog Hop + GIVEAWAY

I am so excited to be back with you again for another Altenew Scrapbook Collection blog hop! I have had so much fun working with the Reflection Scrapbook Kit*, and I can't wait to show you what I created. (*All product links are affiliate links. You don't pay any extra, but I get a small percentage of your sale! Thanks for your continued support!)  

First, let's have a look at the kit itself:

If you purchase a Reflection Scrapbook Kit, you also get a free gift! 

The Reflection Scrapbook Kit is completely filled with paper (2 pieces for each double-sided pattern), stickers, chipboard, die-cuts, wood veneer, puffy alphabet stickers, transparent die-cuts, wooden buttons, acrylic frames, and more! There is so much here that I've barely dented my kit. I've created soft dreamy layouts with it, as well as this new bold and vibrant layout for the hop today:

I've seen some amazing, bold creations using the Halftone Circles Stamp Set, but I wanted the circles on this layout to be a little more "low-key." When I trimmed my 12" x 12" painted rainbow patterned paper down to 8-1/2" x 11", I made sure to leave a bit of space on the side that I could stamp the circles on with the coordinating ink colors. I then used circle punches to cut out the circles and adhere on my page with dimensional adhesive.

Along with the stamped circles, I also added coordinating embellishments from the Reflection Scrapbook Kit, along with sequins from my stash in their respective colors on the background.

My title was so easy to piece together using the transparent die-cut word "beautiful" from the kit, along with the puffy alphabet stickers. 

My favorite part of the layout is the wood veneer butterfly that I colored in with a water pen and the same ink colors that I used on the Halftone Circles. To create a boundary between the colors, I colored the division between the sections with black permanent pen  and added a few sequins for sparkle. I love the way this colorful butterfly looks at the bottom of the page, pointing up toward my title, photo and journaling. 

Now for the exciting part! I am giving away a $30 gift certificate to one lucky winner who comments on this blog post! Just tell me what your favourite part of summer is in a comment (don't worry- you can also comment as a guest on this blog) and I will choose a winner on Friday July 21st at 10:00am CST.
