Altenew Educator “Love and Friendship” Blog Hop + Giveaway

by Virginia Lu

Hello, Altenew friends! This is Virginia here. It brings me great joy to kick off the Altenew Educators' “Love & Friendship” Blog Hop + Giveaway! We are so happy to have 17 ( and counting) Altenew Certified Educators since we started in late 2017!Altenew-EducatorsBlogHop-Virginia#1










Today, we are celebrating the certified Altenew Educators with a special blog hop with the theme of “Love and Friendship”. From Australia, India, Russia, the Philippines, Turkey… to Canada and the United States, the Educators are now a group of like-minded crafters. Many of our Educators have now become friends and some of them even met up with each other! Aren't crafty friends the best? There are prizes (of course!), so be sure to hop along for inspiration and creative ideas.

As the Co-Coordinator with Erum Tasneem, I am sharing a love-themed anniversary card.


The Virginia Rose 3D Die Set has my name on it and it is perfect to use it for our upcoming wedding anniversary!

I started out with die-cutting the Essential Rock Collection 6×6 Paper Pack. The muted tone such as gray really can add a touch of elegance and sophistication. I also used a piece of silver glitter paper from my stash for that extra shine!

I really love the ease of using Altenew products as everything match. From the Antique Silver Metallic Ink Spray to the Rock Collection Enamel Dots, it didn't take me long to create this card for my hubby!
