These incredibly talented crafters worked their way up from level 1 to level 3, successfully passing each level's tests and challenges. On top of that, they held their first Altenew card-making workshops (with our amazing coordinators, Virginia and Erum, observing their classes).

Where are they now?

Ever since becoming Altenew Certified Educators, these ladies have continued to amaze us with their passion and talent! Most of them have already been invited as guest designers in our blog hops and have also participated in our special AECP Blog Hops (check them out here and here).

I recognize some of those names and follow their blogs. Although, I am more of play with the products and no so much interested in being an instructor, I love that fact that you have created a place for the dreams of others to come true. I really enjoyed reading about the different Educator’s.

Many thanks to everyone that’s invested a bit of time to share their talent. I’ve enjoyed watching and creating as I explore cardmaking. Can’t wait to see what’s coming next.

I think it is wonderful to have this academy. I am so used to doing self paved learning to gain knowledge and skill through continuing education as a Registered Nurse for 45 years. I would love to do it but my health has even been keeping me from being able to craft for more than an hour at a time. Everyone is so fortunate to be able to do this and I applaud all of you. It is a dream for me to maybe one day to be able to become a certified Altenew educator. I am new to card making and feel so to have found it. I have always given cards to people and now I can make them even more special for each person. I look forward to seeing all your projects as I am sure they will me exceptional.
