Good morning and welcome to Day 2 of our 5th-anniversary blog hop.
- Blog Hop Day 1: Altenew Infographic (2014 – 2019)
- Blog Hop Day 2: Leadership Team Shout-out
- Blog Hop Day 3: Card Design Team Shout-out
- Blog Hop Day 4: Scrapbook Design Team Shout-out
Five years seems to have gone by in a blur! But what an incredible journey it has been! To all our fans and supporters, thank you for loving Altenew, we wouldn't have made it this far without your continued support and encouragement! We appreciate you very much and hope to continue to inspire you for many years to come!
This is a good opportunity to give a shout-out to the amazing people who keep the Altenew ship sailing.
The ladies behind Altenew: Lydia, our Creative Ambassador and oh-so-talented designer and card-maker. Jen, co-founder and VP of Product Development (a.k.a. the one who gives the final stamp of APPROVAL on every product). Nicole, our Operations Director who does so much to keep the wheels running, I couldn't even begin to list them! Next is myself (the other co-founder), and May, our Marketing Director who introduces herself as the a-May-zing May, and rightfully so! We love her incredible work ethic and her constant thirst for learning and improving herself.
This is us with our fearless leader Nabil (and our daughter Fatimah who sneaks up in every picture):
Nabil has supported Altenew since Day 1, and we couldn't have asked for a better leader!
Last but not least, I would like to give a special shout-out to our dedicated team members who are working tirelessly behind the scenes. Thank you Karen, Jho, Irick, Aurum, Zinia, and Moamen for the late nights and for being part of the Altenew family.

Lovely to see the great creative minds behind Altenew! I love your stamps and stencils, and ink colors – don’t even get me started on those. You guys have an amazing range of shades and such a brilliant collection of wonderful colors – the ombre effect in each set is an added advantage. Thanks Altenew!
I’m starting stamping again after 10 years and am so excited about your products! Just made a card with the Geometric Flowers last night. Happy Anniversary!
Thank you for sharing! I watched the video accompanying each card. Being a visual learner this was the best way to learn these beautiful techniques! One of my favorites was the no line watercolor done by Nicole. A simple elegant card that shows the personality of the artist. What a delight to actually receive a card like this! Beautiful job ladies!
Happy Anniversary! Wonderful stamps to inspire creativity.
I love your products! I am building a nice collection of your stuff!
Big congrats on 5 years and wishing you many more!
