Before we get started, we would like to share our thoughts on giving back to the community and helping one another in these trying times. Please feel free to watch the video below or over on YouTube.
We can't give our Card Design Team a shout-out without doing the same for our Mixed Media Design Team AND our NEW Video Inspiration Team for their creative contributions!
Our Mixed Media Design Team has been working tirelessly every month to create layouts, journal pages, DIY home decor, and other amazing handmade creations featuring Altenew products. We couldn't have asked for a better team!
In our effort to provide more project inspiration, while keeping up with the fast-paced world that we are living in and taking consideration of our on-the-go fans and customers, we have launched our Video Inspiration Team last September 2019! These talented designers have been providing fun, high-quality, and inspiring process videos, which shows how to recreate the beautiful cards that they've made with Altenew products! Need we say more?!
We 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 the most about being on their respective design teams and their favorite Altenew products!
Lilith Eeckels (DT Member Since May 2016)
My name is Lilith Eeckels and I have been on the Altenew Design Team since May 2016. I was on a crafting break when I was contacted to join the team and it has been such an amazing experience. I have met some amazingly talented people and made some really good friends. This team has given me the tools to be creative again and discover new passions. I love all Altenew products but my most used are the patterned papers, washi tapes, and layering dies.
Kymona Tracey (DT Member Since June 2017)
Wow, three years have gone by so fast, and Altenew has continued to push my creativity to higher limits. Their amazing products have me thinking past the ordinary when it's time for me to craft. I love being a part of this family and can't wait to see what the rest of this year has in store for us. Thank you Altenew for the fun and fantastic products.
Reiko Tsuchida (DT Member Since October 2017)
I’m so honored and happy to be a part of the Altenew Scrapbook Design Team. Also, I’m so grateful for Altenew because they’ve given me the opportunity to extend my creativity with such amazing and unique products. I’m truly in love with not only their stamp sets and crisp dye inks but also their scrapbook collections. Thank you, Altenew, for having me. Happy anniversary!
Nathalie DeSousa (DT Member Since August 2019)
From fan and collector of Altenew products to being part of their Mixed Media Design Team, my creative adventure with Altenew has been so fulfilling. I love being able to mix and match their products in my paper crafting and create a one-of-a-kind piece of me. Being part of the Altenew family is a dream come true, that gets better and better with each new product release. Through the past years, I continue to be awed at the amazing products, and cannot wait to see what comes next.
Maryám Pérez (DT Member Since September 2019)
I've only been a part of the Altenew Mixed Media Team since September 2019 but it has been an incredible experience. Being able to work with amazing people and awesome innovative products every month is one of the best things ever. Some of my favorite products are their beautiful and elegant line of floral stamps and the Watercolor 36 Pan Set. I will always be grateful for this opportunity and for the support this company has shown me. Thank you for having me. Happy 6th Anniversary!
Jaycee Gaspar (DT Member Since October 2019)
The Altenew Design Teams diligently inspire creativity. From the start of my crafty journey, I have been a fan of their work and a loyal Altenew customer. Since April 2019, it has been an incredible privilege to reach out and share what I have learned using my favorite Altenew products. I love botanical illustration and Altenew's outline flower stamps spark my imagination every release. Aside from Altenew florals, I also love that other designs are contemporary and suit any occasion and anyone.
Ashlea Cornell (DT Member Since October 2019)
Hello, all! Ashlea Cornell here, and I’ve been on the Altenew Video Inspiration Team since October 2019. Being on the team has been such an honor and so much fun. Sharing my love of card-making with others through my videos has meant so much. My favorite product from Altenew is the Artists' Watercolor 24 Pan Set. The formula of the pans makes watercoloring so fun and easy to learn and improve upon.
Amber Rain Davis (DT Member Since March 2020)
I've been crushing on Altenew products since I started stamping three years ago. Altenew's iconic floral layering stamps drew me to this fantastic company. Before I was confident coloring, the layering sets allowed me to add vibrant colors to my projects with ease. I became an Altenew Educator in August 2018, and my ultimate dream to join the Altenew Video Inspiration Team came true in March 2020. I continue to be inspired by Altenew's timeless, elegant florals and feel so blessed to be part of such a kind, talented, and generous team!
Nicole Watt (DT Member Since March 2020)
Being on the Video Inspiration Team is so rewarding! I love that I get to share my creative process with all the amazing Altenew fans, so that anyone who wants to learn can be successful at stamping and cardmaking! Of course, I love all the floral stamp sets – my favorite is Beautiful Day. But, what I love even more is that every set, floral or otherwise, can be used to create something simple, or super complex. It's up to you.
