2019 Anniversary BlogHop Graphic

Good morning and welcome to Day 2 of our 5th-anniversary blog hop.

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.

The first time I saw Altenew stamps about 3 years ago, I was blown away by their floral layering stamps. Florals are always the corner stone of much of my crafting. So as you can imagine I had to have them. They are so innovative & give amazing results with little effort. Absolutely love them & own quite a few. But like all crafters, you can never have too much of a good thing ?

Annette Reed April 7, 2019 - 9:56 PM

I just finished with day two. For days is a bit much for me, but I’m trying. I just love seeing what your DT comes up with. Your products are great-especially your layering sets. I just love your florals.

Anushree Vaish April 7, 2019 - 11:05 PM
