Altenew "Our Family" Scrapbook Kit: Cali Life

I finally had the opportunity to meet May with Altenew* at Creativation, and it was so lovely to finally put a face to someone who I have corresponded with for a couple of years now! This company is making amazing things; including stamps, inks, dies AND paper products, and I was totally humbled when she handed me their newest scrapbook kit, Our Family*, to create with, no strings attached. It's taken me a while to have time to crack it open, but when I did, I was so inspired to document a beautiful day we shared together in Laguna, California. (*All product links contained in this post are affiliate links.

Supplies | Altenew "Our Family" scrapbook kit, Crate Paper Carousel ephemera die-cuts, Crate Paper Carousel chipboard stickers, Crate Paper Carousel stars

The base for my layout was created with a gorgeous multi-colored "painted" background from the Our Family scrapbook kit. I knew as soon as I saw it that it would be the perfect backdrop for these colorful photos from an adventure at a beach playground. 


The elements in the kit, like these colorful chipboard alphabet stickers, paired perfectly with my photos, as well as the Crate Paper Carousel collection ephemera die-cuts. I love their thin font, as well as their painted border.


To add to my title at the bottom of the page, I paired those alphabet stickers with the "life" chipboard sticker, also from the Our Family scrapbook kit, which topped the die-cut camera, accented with the chipboard sticker heart. My layout didn't need much more embellishment, but the Carousel stars and gorgeous enamel dots from the Our Family scrapbook kit finished off the page.


This page was so fun to create with this beautiful kit! See my video below for the full process of its creation, as well as a look into the kit itself before I got to work:

Thanks for watching! What will you document with the gorgeous Altenew Our Family scrapbook kit? Happy creating!
