Video: Vacation (Reflection kit)

by Lilith Eeckels

Welcome Altenew fans. It's Lilith with a new layout video.  I used the Reflection Scrapbook Kit and went for bright colors. Also worked with some stamps and inks to create my own embellishments as it's so easy to do.

2016 is drawing to an end and that is also the time of year when plan our next summer vacation. While planning I love looking through photos from this year and for this layout I picked out some pictures taken on our last vacation day at Lake Lucerne in Switzerland. It was such a fun day even though some of the boys put on a pout face.

Instead of using butterflies (which are my favorite) I went for something different but which was still light and airy: feathers which were hand cut along with some arrows from the Happy Dreams stamp set.  The feathers from this set are really easy to cut out and I will be using them a lot in future projects. This set is so versatile.

To add a bit of sparkle I used some glitter tape which I stuck to some card and then punched out some circle shapes. They add a hint of detail which I love.

As for the title I used chipboard elements from the Reflection Scrapbook Kit and stamped phrases and words from the stamp which come with the kit. I stamped the word VACATION in Purple Wine and hand cut it. It is a bit tricky but this technique can be interesting as you can create titles in whatever color you like. One of the stamps on the Happy Dreams set had a curved arrow. I inked only the arrow and added a couple of stamped images around the cloud shapes to add flow.

So there you have it. My last video for 2016. I am so excited for 2017 as I'm sure Altenew has a lot of new projects up their sleeve. I wish you all a happy New Year and will see you very soon with a new blog post.


Happy Scrapping.
