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.

Crafting with Altenew is fundamental to my creative expression. Being a part of the design team enables me to share the joy of paper craft with the Altenew community. Since the beginning, I always thought Altenew illustrates the best floral stamps. The balance of classical and contemporary design has challenged my artistry and I am excited to see how else Altenew changes the crafting industry.

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.
