Altenew has been rocking the industry with new and innovative designs and products for 8 years now! Happy birthday, Altenew!  I have no doubt that your 9th year will be even better than the last! I discovered two new favorite products this year; one old, the other brand new! Just released is the new Ultra Sticky Double Sided Tape – as fantastic as the name suggests, and the other is the Mini Blossom Die Cutting Machine now being used almost exclusively for die-cutting! Thank you, Altenew, for providing us with fresh and exciting products and encouraging daily creativity in myriad ways!

I've been on the Altenew Card Design Team for more than 6 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.

The last six months on the Altenew Card DT have flown by, mainly because I get to do what I love – play with paper and ink. Being part of the Altenew team is like having an extended family; everyone is super supportive and full of ideas. There have been so many new product lines added in the last year, but the addition of hot foil plates that incorporate their timeless floral designs has reignited my love of crafting. My favorite product is and always will be the Crisp Dye Inks.

The past three years with Altenew have been so much fun. I am a clean and simple card maker.  One of my favorite things, after all this time, is that I can find things in every release that work well with my style. I love white space, so Altenew florals add that perfect pop of color! My favorite product is still the Classy Stripes Stencil. It has a permanent place on my desk!  Altenew inks are also at the top of my list. The colors are gorgeous and work so well for the layered stamps. Altenew definitely sparks my creativity, and I am so thankful for them!

Happy birthday, Altenew! I am hopeful that eight years is just the beginning of your contribution to the creative industry. With every monthly release, I am in awe of your beautiful crafting products. I am grateful to use them nearly every day. I am excited to see your color range expand into your multitude of coloring mediums. And I am looking forward to additional crafting categories Altenew introduces into their line-up of products to help ‘Craft Your Life!'

Happy 8th-anniversary, Altenew! I can’t imagine my crafting life without you. I am not a natural-born artist, yet your beautiful and artistic designs make me feel like a natural artist! With each release, it is like an eye-opening experience. I am having such a great ride by being part of the Altenew family. What does the Altenew brand mean to me? Altenew is about timeless (yet innovative) and thoughtful design. Thank you for continuing to spark our creativity!

Happy 8th, Altenew! Man, I cannot believe it has been a year since I have been on this AMAZING Team! Time flies when you’re having FUN! I am so honored to be a part of this AMAZING company with the coolest and most wonderful people around!! All the products from Altenew are soooooo amazing, but my favorites are the washi tapes and the various watercolor mediums.

I've been with the Altenew DT from the beginning and it’s been an amazing ride so far! I’m still deeply honored that I can be a part of this amazing journey.  It’s been wonderful to watch how this company grows and evolves. Their beautiful stamps and dies are a joy to work with, they are always beautifully designed, easy to use, and keep inspiring my creative juices to flow. It’s also a real privilege to be able to work with such a talented, kind, and committed team of people who stand behind Altenew.

Happy 8th-anniversary, Altenew! Congratulations on continuing to be an innovative leader in the papercraft industry. You always knock it out of the ballpark! This year, my new favorite products are layering stencils, especially if there is a coordinating 3D Embossing Folder; it's the perfect match! I feel very lucky to be a part of this exciting team and company; thank you so much for creating such wonderful products to inspire us!

Being a part of the Altenew Design Team is amazing. I have loved Altenew's florals since the beginning, and they were instrumental in my coloring journey. Now, to be able to use them as part of my job makes it feel less like work and more like playing! I could never choose a favorite stamp or die because they are all wonderful. The Artists' 24 Pan Watercolors are definitely a favorite at my craft desk, but I love all of the coloring mediums. Happy anniversary to Altenew!

DT Projects Collage Card Video Inspiration Team Michelle Short

Michelle Short (Joined September 2021)

Joining the Altenew Card Design Team, as well as the Video Design Team has been a dream come true and such a huge honor. I have followed Altenew since the beginning. I fell in love with the floral stamps but have since fallen in love with the dies, embellishments, paper, coloring mediums, and tools! I have only been on the team for seven months now, but I love working as part of such an amazing team! Happy anniversary, Altenew!

When Tasnim asked me to join the team, it was a dream come true! What I love most about Altenew products is everyone that can stamp one image over another will get absolutely amazing results – it seriously does level the playing field when it comes to stamping! One of my favorites has to be Watercolor Wonders – it’s one of the first stamp sets I purchased and I still reach for it again and again. I still can’t believe that I get to play with gorgeous Altenew products daily. It truly is an honor to be part of this amazing team.

Every year, I start by mentioning a product that I have really liked so far. And this time is no different; I am loving the new Woodless Coloring Pencils along with the Brush and Fine Tip Pens. Altenew has done a remarkable job at these coloring mediums, really! I am really lucky I get to play with these high-quality products on a daily basis and still be wowed every single time Altenew comes up with something new! Happy anniversary, Altenew! Wishing you the very best! Keep rockin'!

Happy 8th-anniversary, Altenew! I’ve been an Altenew mega-fan since year 1. Layering stamps and Altenew’s eclectic and cool dies never cease to inspire me. New product reveals are always my favorite time of the month, especially when those gorgeous goodies land on the doorstep. I think when you love creating with a brand, personally, it shows through. And to be part of the wonderful Altenew team on this anniversary hop is a dream come true!

Happy 8th Birthday Altenew from eastern NY. Love the quality of the stamps and alcohol markers. Started stamping in 1992, just out of college. Raise my kids between 1999-2019 limiting my stamping time. When the last kid was a senior I started stamping again, set up a studio and discovered this incredible company. Thank you for the quality products. Keep up the good work!
