Hello everyone! Today I am back with a totally different project!

Altenew has just released a new scparbook collection and we are celebrating with a fun blog hop. There is ton of inspiration and giveaways along the way so hop along with us!  If you want to start the hop from the beginning please visit the Altenew blog here.

This scrapbook collection is right on trend with fresh colors, watercolored elements, geometric designs, and florals.  The papers and embellishments have been designed to help you document your precious family memories, but are versatile enough to use on any layout, journal, or card project.

So today I created a scrapbook layout using elements from this collection. I do scrapbook and I like to mainly create layouts from our family travels. But I never share them. I don’t like to share photos of my kids online and that’s the  main reason I avoid it. But today is an exception, I am sharing a lovely layout using a photo of my husband and kids that I took last summer while we were in Copenhagen. In the photo no faces are shown so I feel safe 🙂

It was a lovely day in Copenhagen and after a lot of walking around we enjoyed an ice-cream looking at the view. For my layout I used that gorgeous paper with the color washes and I combined stickers, alphabets, enamels, wood veneers and die cuts from the collection.

It’s a quick and easy layout to create and you will see the process in the video. I love keeping the photo as the main focal point and then create clusters in different areas.

I printed my journaling and I also stamped the date the photo was taken.

Fun elements such as wooden stars, enamels and thread really add that extra something to your layout.

  1. The layout is lovely. It looks so cohesive and having a kit like this certainly assists achieving this look.

  2. I love the embossing paste the colors would add a great excitement to my art journaling and loving the rose stamp too.

  3. Very pretty bright layout. I love the embossing powders the most seeing as they are the ‘in’thing at the moment, I am working on a lot of cards at the moment which are foiled and embossed in all the metallic colours…. however… I see a few I don’t have in the new collection!

  4. Wonderful LO Vicky! I love the playful colors of this collection and those alpha stickers are fabulous! Thanks for the inspiration! Have a wonderful day!

  5. Its all lovely but I don’t tend to use stickers and such… I think my favorite is the double sided paper. Your lay out is very nice…great picture as well

  6. Such a pretty layout using those beautiful supplies! I especially love the wood veneers and the chipboard alphabet letters.

  7. Wow I love watercolor and this collection is so great, so for me the paper collection and the embossing is my most favorite. Thanks for sharing .

  8. You have a great eye for compostion, not to mention how lovely the layout is. Always enjoy your videos.

  9. This bundle is fabulous ! My favorite items in the bundle s the embossing powder. That’s one of my favorite things to do when I’m creating new pieces. Thanks for the giveaway.

  10. Your scrapbook page is AMAZING! I love your placement of the elements and your photo is perfect with the colors coordinating!

  11. I loved how the embossing powders match the papers! I love water color backgrounds the best and this entire collection is just FULL of beautiful matching elements with the same watercolor motif! Just LOVED it!

  12. This is such a beautiful collection, and your layout is stunning! I’m delighted to learn you enjoy scrap-booking as well as card-making. Thank you for posting this project; and thank you for being careful with your children’s photos! I love the carefree look of the papers and stickers in this release, I’m quite fond of the watercolor, and I like the mix with the wood veneer! All-in-all, I’m loving it! 🙂

  13. Your use of the watercolour paper is lovely! It’s very fresh but also beautiful colours. 🙂

  14. The best thing about this to me are the chipboard and wood veneer cut outs/stickers. I adore dimension and these are beautiful. I also love that this is watercolor. I always feel like watercolors are more forgiving in that unintentional blotches end up being the best looking things! Thanks again for sharing. :o)

  15. Hi Vicky, I really love the rose gold embossingpowder, the stamps and the lovely paper most. By the way, I do it the exact same way with pictures of my family and friends: on my instagram-page I never post pictures of my kids. Friends are asked every single time for their permission before I post a picture of them. Glad to hear, that I’m not alone with that opinion. ..?

  16. Beautiful layout Vicky. I remember reading on your blog this summer that you and your family went on vacation in our capital – yes I ‘m Danish. Thanks for visiting 🙂

  17. what a beautiful layout! i feel the same about my family, and i do not post pages with their faces. i can’t say i never have, i just do not anymore. i love this new collection my altenew. i am so happy it is about family too! thank you for such a lovely layout.

  18. This really light and refreshing. I love how yohow you arranged everything. Realally like that all the embellishments are sticker type. No mess with glue except for or the photo and accent strip.

  19. Lovely, Vicky! This is a great collection, the watercolor papers are beautiful. I love altenew’s layering stamps. I could see using most of the supplies for card making, too.

  20. The collection is beautiful; a nice change from cute which seems so popular. Watercolor and florals are aways so lovely from Altenew. Your layout brought together many different elements from the collection to provide the perfect backdrop for your photo.

  21. Those altenew layered flowers inspire me and provide so many possibilities. The mini-rose set is lovely. Thanks for all your beautiful posts.

  22. Thank you for explaining how you use your scrapbook pages. That’s such a good idea to decorate with them! I really like the watercolor feel of the paper you used!

  23. Beautiful layout! You’ve showcased Altenew’s release fabulously – clearly I’ll have to order it now! I love your unique perspective – you always create wonderful pieces . Thank you for sharing your talent.

  24. Love your layout Vicky! This is really a great collection, I love everything about it, all the beautiful watercolor papers and especially the new embossing powders! Thank you for sharing, it’s different to see you do something other than cards but I understand how you feel.

  25. Wonderful layout! I love the embellishments you chose and how you placed them and also divided the page up!

  26. Wonderfull page!!!!!! And fun to think of you visiting Denmark!!!!! I would love to get more inspiration on scrapbooking! and also your art journaling!!!!!!
    Greetings from Winnie in Denmark

  27. I love it all, but I especially love the sticker sheets because I always have trouble figuring out what to put on my cards.

  28. It’s a lovely layout. Those watercolour backgrounds are wonderful indeed! I completely sympathise with your attitude towards posting private pictures. I hardly do – as we all know – once it’s on the internet it stays on the internet.

  29. I love the new products and especially the color grouping. It looks fun and fresh. I really like the layout you completed and would love to see more of your ideas. I must admit that what I loved best was the photo you chose. 🙂

  30. This is a beautiful collection with so much to love. The stickers and chipboard are lovely but my favourite item is the paper.

  31. I think what I like most is the beautiful color coordination of all the elements of the collection. The colors are so fresh, lovely, lively, ah…so many things could be said, but Beautiful covers it all! So visually appealing!

  32. Oh my gosh, I absolutely love your layout! Beautiful and your placement of items is so gorgeous! I understand you not wanting to share pics of your family, but I would love to see more of your layouts if you ever wish to share!! I think photos from the back are great. Thanks again for sharing with us.

  33. This is a beautiful collection with so much to love. The stickers and chipboard are lovely but my favourite item is the paper.

  34. This is such a great layout Vicky. I think where your kids are not facing the camera you are not exposing them. LOL What a beautiful picture!

  35. I love your layout. What a clever idea of putting the page in a shadow box. A nice way
    to enjoy your layout.. Nice family too.

  36. My favourite product is the Family Stickers, they are so beautiful. Thank you for sharing your amazing artwork with us!

  37. Beautiful layout page. Your layout page is as stunning as your card creations are! One of my favorite items from this kit is the pack of journaling cards, but I think everything is amazing!

  38. I love your scrapbook page. I wish you could show some of your pages masking the faces of your kids. Love the papers.

  39. What I like the most is the way you grouped the items around the camera. This made the saying pop a lot. And nice looking family!

  40. This is a great layout! I would love to see more pages from you but totally understand your want for privacy. Some cards with this kit would be fun, too!

  41. I love the pastel colors of this collection and your page looks amazing. It’s nice to work on summer pages as the winter is arriving very quickly!
    Thanks for this video Vicky!

  42. Vicki, I watch your YouTube vids. Today I was thrilled to see a scrapbook page! I love the way you used the papers from the collection!
    I often have trouble using paper that is more a piece of art then a typical
    12 x 12 paper. Thank you for inspiring me!

  43. Hi Vickey
    I just love this collection….your layout is lovely…..great idea with the shadow box etc….Thankyou Pattie ?

  44. Gorgeous layout! The new kit looks so pretty – my favourite items from the kit are the die, the washi and the cardstock stickers. Thanks for the bonus prize too ??

  45. You have a beautiful family. I love this layout, and that is such a great picture! I liked all the paper in the kit, and the fact a lot of it already has adhesive. I think my favorite is the journaling cards, though. Thanks so much for sharing. ???

  46. Hi Vicky, this is an absolute gorgeous layout! I love the watercolor paper and the rosegold embossing powder. I am totally with you on protecting our families, especially the kids! But I guess this is a good photo to use! I only post photos of me, or of nature, and of my crafts to, of course. Take care! Lots of hugs from Belgium!

  47. This is such a beautiful layout and I think it’s awesome that you are protecting your family and not sharing pictures!! Yes please make more scrapbook layouts I love your style so much!You and Altenew make a very nice team 🙂

  61. Vicky, I didn’t know that you scrapbooked too! I would love to see more layouts and I love the photo. It’s a simple photo and a simple layout, but it’s also so beautiful! You immediately made me think of similar photos I have that would work with a similar layout! What do I love most in the release? That’s a hard one though… I always love Altenew’s stamps, and the sentiments in this set are wonderful and two that I don’t have; I also love the papers, although I’m not so sure about the large tree paper… but I think I’m really excited about the embossing powders! I have to see if anyone else on the blog hop uses them! 🙂

  62. What a great photo, looks like beautiful weather in Denmark. Hope you went to the Tivoli Gardens. I like the way you ‘scrapbooked’ the page, I hardly ever scrapbook… maybe when one of my friends has a baby. I like your idea of putting it in a frame. Thank you.

  63. Beautiful layout! I started out just scrapbooking, now I do all kinds of paper crafts and love them all. What a great kit, the papers are gorgeous. I’d love to see more videos with layouts, there aren’t a lot of bloggers that show scrapbooking like there are with cards. Thanks for this lovely video.
