I can hardly believe I’ve had the privilege of being on the Altenew Card Team since Summer 2018! Almost 3 years of exciting new products each month without fail that inspire me creatively and allow me so many rewarding opportunities to share my excitement and joy with others! The monthly subscriptions are all wonderful, but every single month, the Paint-A-Flower series has not failed to be “my most favorite yet!” Every time I wonder what more Altenew can dream up, they amaze and delight me once again, and I know the next year will continue to thrill and inspire! Come find me at!

It's no surprise to me that Altenew is as successful as it is! They are truly inspirational and continually push their products to the next level, which in turn inspires us to create! I love how Altenew has supported and helped me grow as a paper crafter, and in particular, I have to thank them for their watercolor products, as I am sure that I would never have ventured down this road without them. What's next? I can't wait to see! Find me at

Altenew has been one of my favorite experiences in 14 years as a card maker/blogger. Their beautiful stamps and dies are a joy to work with and are perfect for my quick and simple card making style. I have loved seeing what’s new each month, from the breathtaking florals and their genius stencils, all the way to the gorgeous ink colors. Altenew products make it easy to create a heartfelt card to send to friends and loved ones, which is what it's all about!

Time flies when you’re having fun! In the last 4 years, I have experienced personal and artistic growth from being part of the Altenew team. I have also witnessed Altenew friends/fans enjoying crafting and learning new skills. With each release, I continue to be amazed with Altenew’s innovative and trend-setting designs and products. I am so pleased that Altenew comes out with monthly features such as the Craft-A-Flower series. They spark JOY in me! I can't wait to see what Altenew comes up with next!

Emily Midgett (Joined in January 2021)

Becoming a member of the Altenew Card Design Team was a dream come true for me. I have adored Altenew's graceful, elegant floral stamps for almost as long as they've been in business, and so getting an excuse to use them regularly is one of the best parts about this gig! I am a very busy mom of four, and sometimes what I “want” to do and what I “have” to do don't always coincide. Being a part of the Design Team allows me to do what I love as a job! Happy 7th Anniversary, Altenew!

I've been on the Altenew Card Design Team for more than 5 years, and it's been a beautiful journey filled with inspiration and creativity. I’ve grown as a designer and developed my style during these years. From the first day I saw Altenew products until today, I’m still fascinated by their beautiful and unique designs. Needless to say, it's a lot of fun to work with all the different product lines Altenew carries. Just when you think you saw it all, this wonderful company surprises you with more amazingness.

I can't believe it’s been 7 years already! I've been with the Altenew Design Team from the beginning, but I can remember when I joined it like it was yesterday! I am still beyond thrilled and deeply honored that I can be a part of this amazing journey. Altenew products are always my favorite to work with, but it is also a real privilege to be able to work with such a talented, kind, and committed team of people who stand behind this company.
