Summer Fun with Altenew Hop

Happy Friday and Happy Blog Hop Weekend!  

We're delighted to have you join us for another fun Scrap 'N Stamp Blog Hop, especially since this month we are featuring a new company to the online store- Altenew!  Though new in the store, Altenew is not new in the paper crafting world.  They've been around since 2014 providing elegant, natural & versatile designs.  Many of us are fans of their products and we're so excited to share them with you!

As always we'll be giving away a $50 Gift Certificate to one lucky person who leaves a comment along the way.  Every stop is another chance to win, so please share the love with each of the talented makers!  We will announce the winner on the SNS blog on August 29.

The fun started over at the Scrap 'N Stamp blog and you can find all the links there!   When you leave here, you'll hop over to see what Deepa has for you!  I know it'll be stunning!

I had some fun with one of the sweet mini stamp designs by Altenew- Classic Sneakers!  If you can't wear yellow shoes in the summertime, when can you!?  (Personally, I'll be wearing mine through fall...)

I paired my yellow sneakers (colored with Distress Watercolor Pencil Crayons) with a big bold sentiment die cut from a Kraft tag.  I tied a bit of yellow crinkle ribbon and mounted it all on a fabulous background that I simply folded in half from a piece of Ready-to-use Mixed Media paper by Vicki Boutin!  This makes a slightly unusual card size of 4x8 inches, but I'm sure it'll serve it's purpose just fine!

These shoes will be great for a variety of occasions, but I can't help but smile thinking of my 3 year old grandson admiring a pair of yellow shoes :)   

The fun isn't over... Be sure to leave a comment, then hop over to see what Deepa has to share!

Here's the full list of links, which starts over at the SNS blog!

Inky hugs,

I like the shoes but I'm not a fan of the letters without the middles.

Love the jaunty yellow running shoes! A fabulous birthday card in every way! The peek-through letters add another layer of fun.

I LOVE this card! It's a really fun card, and almost has an outer space feel to it, from my perspective.

Love the card Tara! I have never owned yellow shoes but I think it is definitely time to change that. Looking forward to your next live.
