Hello, Altenew friends! Welcome to our last blog hop of 2021!

A Year in Review Blog Hop 2021

What a year that was! If there's something that we've all learned this past year, it's the fact that crafting can bring us closer together – no matter where we are in the world. This year, we've released new product categories, exciting and unique stencils, dies, inks, paper, and washi tapes, and, of course, more of Altenew's trademark elegant stamp designs! Needless to say, we've had a great year – thanks to our excellent leadership team, product designers, design team, Customer Happiness Team, warehouse employees, and YOU – our awesome customers and fans.

I would be hard pressed to pick a favorite Altenew product or card.

Yvonne Boucher December 28, 2021 - 12:04 PM

Altenew has been one of my favorite shop spots for a while now. You never cease to amaze with your clever, inspiring products. To choose just one product is not an easy task, but if I have too…I’d say the new card kits. It’s great having all the pieces together in one set. Thank you, Altenew team (from design to shipping) for inspiring us to create. Here’s to another creatively inspiring year!

Gina Spears December 28, 2021 - 12:11 PM

Thank you for another giveaway. Altenew must be thrilled with the amazing talent you draw in; these ladies know how to make a card! I have learned so much, just from observing and reading their blog posts. Wow.

barbara lassiter December 28, 2021 - 2:26 PM

There have been many stamps, dies and other products that I’ve loved this year. Two of the ones I’ve purchased recently have been the Mini Rolled Rose Die set and the Bird Of The Woods Stamp and Die set. Because of circumstances, I’ve yet to use either one, but I am looking forward to doing so! Altenew Products take up a big space in my craft room, but I always seem to find room for another one! Lol and thanks!

Carol McCready December 28, 2021 - 2:42 PM

Awesome to look at all of these gorgeous creations! 2021 has been a rough year in many ways, but it has been a pleasure to make cards with the beautiful Altenew products!

dtilt1 December 28, 2021 - 4:51 PM

wow I really loved the first card, the colors are so pretty. But I was blown away with the red/black roses card. I would have never thought about scrapping off the powder to get less of it on the card. I like how you layered the black embossed folder underneath the red. after all the layering the result is just stunning! most unique card I have seen in quite awhile. I will have to do this technique soon. thanks for the video

Amy Cooley December 28, 2021 - 5:46 PM
