2nd Anniversary Blog Hop Day 3

by May Sukyong Park

Altenew_AnniversaryBlogHop_GraphicGood morning, and welcome to the last day of our 2nd Anniversary Blog Hop.

Wow! We are simply BLOWN away by your response on our blog hop. You all have amazed us with your love, comments and the orders. Thank you everyone for your continued support and sweet birthday wishes. 

If you missed the Day 1 and Day 2 posts of our 2nd Anniversary Blog Hop, make sure to check them out HERE and HERE for inspiration and an extra chance to win PRIZES!  

2016_Design team at a glanceBefore I go into the hop details and prizes, I would like to give a BIG shout out to our fantastic design team for their contributions to creativity, not only on behalf of Altenew, but to the entire papercrafting community.

There is no doubt that Altenew couldn't have come this far without the help of our extremely talented designers that showcase our products each month. We’ll never be able to thank them enough for all they’ve done for Altenew. 

In honor of our anniversary celebration, I have asked each of our design team members to share four of their favorite Altenew projects with you. They are also sharing what they like most about being on the Altenew Design Team, or what they thought when they first heard about Altenew, or what they like most about our products. 

Agnieszka Malyszek
“I was truly honoured when Tasnim invited me to join Altenew design team. I know both talented girls, Tasnim and Jen from another DT and I knew their style and ideas would be something right up my alley! And I was absolutely right! Altenew’s releases are always fantastic, I especially love all the layering floral sets, perfect to create beautiful cards. Another thing I love about this company is the team, such amazing and kind people, so positive and inspiring! I’m really very happy to be amongst these talented gals! Congrats on 2 wonderful years, Altenew! Wishing you many more years of success ahead!”

Amy Gray
“I have been a fan of Tasnim and Jen's work, I was delighted when they joined forces to form Altenew. I've been a fan from the first release and feel incredibly honoured to be a part of the Design Team! For me, Altenew offers a fabulous blend of beautiful, delicate designs balanced to perfection with contemporary, graphic designs. Whatever my creative mood, Altenew will have the perfect stamp set to accompany me on my creative adventures! Happy 2nd anniversary, Altenew. Here’s to many more!”

Anna Kossakovskaya
“For me the invitation to become a part of the Altenew design team one year ago was a very important step of my crafting life. The multilayered flowers are already a legend and I’m so happy and honored I have this opportunity to play with them. And another side, that mean so much to me – our creative and talented team! And of course I’m so happy to see my two Russian speaking crafting friends here with me in one team. And I’m so thankful I’m here and can create and learn more with all these beautiful ladies!”

Marika Rahtu
“My hubby went to the US two years ago and about that time I placed my first order for Simon and I was introduced to the beautiful stamp sets from Altenew. I also remember that for a long I went back and forth whether should I order the Magnolias for Her stamp set or not. I was so drooling over the beautiful flowers but I wasn't sure if I could ever colour them properly. Well, I decided to order it after all and it has become one of my all time favourites from Altenew. A year later, Tasnim took me under her loving wings despite of my inexperience in crafting and ever since Altenew has felt like home to me.”

May Sukyong Park
“I met Tasnim at the CHA craft show last year and I was surprised that she recognized my work and even called my name. One month later she invited me to join her design team, and I was beyond excited and worried at the same time because I thought I wasn’t good enough for Altenew.
Whenever I doubt myself for being part of this amazing team, my sweet teammates have encouraged me with their kind words. I’m glad that I didn’t give up along the way and pushed myself to a new creative level. Happy Anniversary and many more, Altenew! So proud of you two, Tasnim and Jen!” 

Sveta Fotinia
“My love with the Altenew started with the Persian Motifs stamp set. I still think that this stamp set is the most beautiful and genius set in the whole world! Don't believe that Altenew turned only 2 years – it feels like this company was always and I really can't imagine cardmaking without them. I admire how much ideas, novations and creations Altenew creates and want to wish to go further for new victories, dreams, achievements and tops! Love!”

Svitlana Shayevich
“I fell in love with Altenew design with the very first release. So unique, elegant and versatile designs! If I needed to express Altenew in one word I would say – INSPIRING. Being on the Altenew Design Team is such an honor for me. A group of extremely talented, nice and amazing ladies who constantly amaze me with their creativity and sense of style. I see the great future of this company and hope it will continue to supply the papercrafting world with amazing and unique products!”

Therese Calvird
“What I love about Altenew is that it has such a unique style! The layering sets allow stamping options that were just never there before, and with some of the most beautiful flower sets ever, this combination is unbeatable. Tasnim has created an amazing team that never fail to inspire and that is what I love, it helps me to push my own limits and to try out new techniques and of course have fun. I consider myself very lucky to be a part of all this. Happy Anniversary Altenew!”

Yana Smakula
“It was a very big moment for me to join the Altenew team in Spring of 2015. I first discovered Altenew on Jennifer McGuire's blog and I was truly fascinated with the Painted Flowers and Vintage Roses stamp sets. Almost 2 years later these are still among my absolute favorites.”

I hope they continue to share their talents and creativity with all of us! Please be sure to stop by each of their blogs and leave them lots of love.
