Reflection Scarpbook kit
Welcome to our Scrapbook Collection Blog Hop. Today we are sharing lots of inspiration using our Reflection Scrapbook Collection. It is the first scrapbook collection from Altenew and it amazing. You will see how our Design Team and guests have used the collection and all the layouts are just gorgeous.
Here is a look at the whole collection but you can also purchase embellishments and papers separately. We have some awesome prizes up for grabs. Scroll down for more information.
As you can see there is SO MUCH product in this kit. I made two colorful layouts for this hop. The first will be shown here on the Altenew Scrapbook blog and the second on mine (Lilith) so if you want to see that one you’ll have to complete the whole hop. 😉
I used two patterned papers from the collection which were really colorful. The background was a leftover from one of my previous layouts for Altenew (which you can see here).
To help the stars stand out I used some Lava crisp ink to ink the edges with a blender tool. A couple of embellishments and some Shimmer spray ink splatters finish off the layout. I also stamped some sentiments using the Say Cheese Stamp set.
To see how the whole layout came together you can watch the video just below or on YouTube in HD.

Hello everyone. It’s Lilith with a new layout and video. Today I’ll be using the Simple Flowers Stamp Set and Coordinating Die Set. This set includes simplified flowers and leaves in rounded shapes and it can be used in so many ways. For my layout I decided to create three clusters . I picked one of the patterned papers from the Reflection Scrapbook Collection and cut out my background shape.
The patterned paper was the starting point for the colors. I used my Altenew Crisp Ink color chart to pick out ink colors that would match the paper. I stamped a whole bunch of flowers in batches and then cut them out using the dies.
To create my clusters I picked different colors and shapes and popped them onto some foam dots. I also added some leaves and a couple of embellishments (wood epoxy buttons from the Reflection Scrapbook kit and some enamel dots from the New Day card kit).
You can watch the whole process in HD on YouTube or just watch below.
Hello, Altenew fans and welcome to the third Altenew Sketch challenge. The sketch and the color palette is based on one of my favorite layouts. I used stencil and ink sprays for this. you can see here.
Here is my layout I used as a base for the sketch & color palette. I drew a floral background by tracing Floral Drape Stencil on a white cardstock. I drew a floral background with a pencil and I painted with ink sprays. After putting some drops of ink sprays on the palette, I mixed them with water. I used a big photo that my friend took of myself in Japan trip. I embellished with epoxy buttons, origami wood veneer shape, water-colored chipboard stickers.
On my new layout, I used 8.5 x 11inch white cardstock for a background. Do not worry if you do not have a bigger picture for a layout. I did not have a large size picture that I like, so I used several small size pictures. I added multiple pictures on the bottom, it adds interest on a page.
I used a cut file (you could use dies, or hand cut hearts) to make the heart shapes with some of the watercolor style pattern papers from Reflection scarpbooking Kit. I added them on top of background using pop-dots for 3D effect. I decorated it with epoxy buttons, enamel dots and chipboard sticker. After embellishing, I splatter a black ink spray and added a title with alphabet puffy sticker.
When I use a photo, I like to have machine stitching on it. It makes a layout more interesting. I hope you like my layouts and play along with our Sketch Challenge #3.

Hi there Altenew friends, it’s Eunyoung with you today. I’ll be sharing a pocket scrapbook spread using the Reflection Scrapbook Kit. This spread is about my family trip to Jeju Island.
When I start to create a pocket scrapbook spread, I first pick some pictures and then choose suitable patterned papers that will complement them. My page is usually clean and simple. There are not many embellishments on a page when doing this kind of scrapbooking. Because of this the page looks cleaner. This is because you use many photos and also you want your cards to fit inside the pocket without too much bulk.
Normally when I create a layout, I rarely use 4×6 sized photos. But for pocket scrapbooking I do like to use the 4×6 size photos, it’s okay to mix it up when working with a different style.
I love the use of single embellishment on a photo!! It looks so clean and fresh. The chipboard and stickers from the Reflection Scrapbook kit are prefect for this. Also I like to finish my stamping a date on journal cards with a tiny date stamp, it’s so cute!
I wrote my journaling on a piece of the stripe patterned paper from the kit. I just love how fun this looks and shows that you can use some patterned papers in different ways.
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed my page.
There is something very freeing about breaking your own rules, especially when it comes to creative endeavours. Since receiving my stunning Reflections Scrapbook Kit, I have been an a bit of a experimental adventure. All the beautiful watercolored papers have really inspired me to give it a go for myself. This page is the final result.
Naturally, all pattern paper strips and all the embellishments (with the exception of altenew’s silver glitter tape and a small piece tulle) are from the Reflection Scrapbooking Kit. I used Altenew’s Solar White Cardstock as my base. It is a firm favourite now. I always keep a stack of it on my desk.
What may surprise you is how I went about creating the base for my layout. All my watercolor elements we created using a mix of Altenew Crisp Inks. I can’t take credit for this brilliant idea however, it was my fellow teammate Flora who enlightened my to such a cool method. You can read all about the it here on Flora’s blog. To paraphrase the idea, all I did was stamp my ink pads on to acrylic block in order to transfer the ink on to it. I added a tiny amount of water, then stamped and painted from the blocks until my heart was content.
The stamps used in this layout are from the Happy Dreams Stamp Set and I can tell already that this set is going to get a lot of use. It’s so playful and child friendly. I can see myself using the sentiments over and over again. The inks selected, are in my opinion, some of the best matches from the Reflections kit. I used Lagoon, Puffy heart, Arctic, Ocean Waves and Jet Black Crisp Inks. The lilac ink you see on the feather stamp was actually the cause of pink ink bleeding in to the blue in on my block. Awesome effect isn’t it?
Well that about wraps it up for me for another month. I hope you enjoyed my whimsical approach to layout making. I know, I certainly enjoyed trying new things with my Altenew stamps. I’ll be back again next month with something completely different.
Hello. It’s Eunyoung. Today I’ll share a Traveller’s Notebook layout. I used the newly released Reflection Scrapbook kit. The Reflection Scrapbook kit is a travel theme kit. So it’s perfect to document travel layout or mini album.
