A Fond Farewell

by May Sukyong Park

It is always difficult to say goodbye to our friends but it can be exciting to watch them unfold a new chapter in their lives.

Today, I am writing to say a fond farewell to three of our lovely and talented designers: Yoonsun, Laura, and Debby.


We thank them for the beautiful projects they shared with us over the year(s) and wish them nothing but the very best in their future endeavors within the industry. We know that they will be successful in whatever they choose to do with their talents.

CDT Yoonsun“I'm proud and extremely happy to be part of the Altenew design team over the past two years! Leaving is always tinged with sadness but I don't think it is a complete break-up. I will always be your biggest fan, Altenew!!”

You can find Yoonsun's creations on her blog and connect with her on InstagramFlickrPinterest, and Facebook.

CDT Laura“It has truly been an honor working with Altenew. I love the products & the fresh designs but, mostly, I love the people. This is not really goodbye, though. I hope to join in some blog hops from time to time.

I'm so thankful to have had the opportunity to contribute monthly videos for Altenew and for the generosity and appreciation that the Altenew family has shown me. Altenew will always have a special place in my heart.”

You can find Laura's creations on her blog and connect with her on InstagramFacebookTwitterPinterest, and YouTube.

CDT Debby“It has been a delight to be on the Altenew Card Design Team. Altenew products astound me with their fabulous designs and have motivated me to create some of the projects I am most proud of. I am teary-eyed to say goodbye, but I want to spend more time with my family before they are all grown up and flown the nest.

I want to thank Tasnim, Jen, Nabil, May and all the team for including me in their Altenew family these last 18 months and to my talented teammates for being so inspiring.”

You can find Debby’s creations on her blog and connect with her on InstagramFacebookTwitterPinterest, and YouTube.

Yoonsun, Laura, and Debby – thank you so much for your amazing work with us here at Altenew! We send you guys off with hugs and wishes for happiness and joy ahead.

Before I go, I have great news to share with you all. We will be welcoming some new Card Design Team members at the end of this month; so stay tuned!
