A Quick Stroll Down Memory Lane

Our anniversary month is always a time of reminiscing and reflecting on everything we have accomplished since Altenew first launched. On April 7, 2014, our co-founders Tasnim and Jen opened the Altenew doors to the world (we even had a virtual ribbon-cutting ‘ceremony' on the website). Our store had 14 stamp sets which Jen and Tasnim had designed with a lot of thought and care.

Fast forward eight years, and we have grown from a team of 2 to a team of 25+. We continue to work hard to create beautiful designs,  develop complementary products, and, most importantly, inspire you to create heartwarming projects.

Hi! I’m from Ft Wright, Kentucky. Happy Anniversary Altenew! Just an FYI comment for you. I was unable to post a comment on Cherry on Top and Lilith Eekels blog post. Keeps getting a blogger error. Also when I click on the Auzz Trinkets link it opens up to a whole different blog post made on 3/10/2023.

Amy Solovay at the Knitting, Crochet and Crafts Blog April 6, 2023 - 3:22 PM

Hi from Cedar City, Utah! Cheers, paper crafting friends! Happy Anniversary, Altenew!

I really enjoyed checking out your product best sellers list! Seems a lot of the top sellers are newer products, which I suppose is not surprising. re “Which product/s do you have in your craft room? Which one is still on your wishlist?” I don’t actually have any of those yet. I’d love to have them ALL! But the top items on my wish list aren’t featured on this list, like the Altenew gouache paints, the “Beautiful Day” stamp set, and the Dot Label dies. I’m going to have to try that large ink blending brush, too, though — that looks like one I should really bump up to the top of the priority list! It is really hard to settle on just a few things to add to my stash at any given time; when I logged in this morning to look at my store wish list here, there were, like, 80+ items on my wish list!!!!

Thanks so much for organizing this amazing blog hop, and thanks to all the generous sponsors who donated prizes for this!

Jade April 6, 2023 - 3:24 PM

Hi from Seattle. Congratulations on 9 years! You have so many incredible and innovative products. I got hooked on Altenew layered stamps and inks.

Janet Sisk April 6, 2023 - 3:32 PM

Hey y’all! I hail from TN. I did a preorder on the Stampwheel! I can’t wait to get it. I also have been getting the Mimi Delight subscription for awhile now. I love Altenew products and wish you many more years ahead. 😀

Kat Nasevich April 6, 2023 - 3:44 PM

Hi from Florida! There were only 2 items on your list I don’t have…I guess I’m addicted to Altenew!!

Verna Angerhofer April 6, 2023 - 3:53 PM

I’m a little confused – I was looking for the submission(s) for the Altenew Blog Hop Day 2 and saw a lot of shopping options…..are they the cards surrounding the Altenew picture? If so, they are gorgeous!

Ellen Coats April 6, 2023 - 4:09 PM

So far, I have five Altenew stencils, but I’d love to get some stamp sets , possibly inks and the liquid masking fluid!

Alice April 6, 2023 - 4:50 PM

Hi from Italy! Big Congrats for your Anniversary! Sadly your fabulous products are not easily found here, especially the novelties! So I don’t have any of those, but surely I’d love to have them all! I’m in awe especially with the Stampwheel, the Zero Waste Leaf, but also the Rattan Stripes die… and all your amazing flowers stamps!!! So my wish list is very long! :D

Debby Allen April 6, 2023 - 4:58 PM

Hello from Central New York! I have been loving many of these new products! I have actually invested in the Boho Vases, two of the large blending brushes (would love more!), and the fascinating Stamp Wheel!
I would love to get the Rattan Stripes die, the medium storage pouches and the Soft Blossoms Bundle! I would also like a magic fairy to help me find a whole lot more time to enjoy these things!

Diane P April 6, 2023 - 5:00 PM

Hello from Wisconsin! Congratulations on your 9th Anniversary. I love Altenew products. I would love to get the Stamp Wheel some day. I am intrigued by the zero waste leaf die and vertical sentiments.
