Love, love the paper pack. Its inspiring me to finish my project.

Charlanne Bittinger March 6, 2023 - 6:23 AM

Love the great variety. I don’t have a use for all of them as I only make cards for relatives but the designs are lovely. My favorite, to use, is the dragonflies. Right up my alley.

Cyndi Morris March 6, 2023 - 7:05 AM

I must say I’m intrigued by Altenew’s news ensembles! Can’t wait to hear more. One thing I can vouch for is the Altenew watercolor brushes, I bought a set some time ago and have enjoyed working with them. They haven’t made me a good “watercolorer” yet, but I keep trying!

Ann Taylor March 6, 2023 - 7:13 AM

Love all the sample cards! Grateful for the creative people that made them! Can’t wait to receive my new supplies!

Sarah Haumschild March 6, 2023 - 7:56 AM

I love the crane. Living in Florida we have cranes close at all times. That paper pack is what I need to continue my scrapbook.❤

Pam B March 6, 2023 - 9:08 AM

Best release yet! Altenew is the best for unique designs. The cranes remind me of the Sandhills cranes of Florida. Beautiful!

Retta Rae Lutte March 6, 2023 - 9:12 AM

This is a wonderful blog hop! The release is amazing. Especially a fan of the arch dies. The leaf sprig was a wonderful addition!

Isabel Z March 6, 2023 - 1:05 PM

Love the arches–such a cool look!

Cyndy Rogers March 6, 2023 - 1:16 PM

Ensembles!!! I like it! Especially for those who are early in the paper-and-inks creating pastime.
So many variations possible with one ensemble …unlimited potential! But also good for those who don’t want to “reinvent the wheel”…. who look to the kit for ways to use the products. As usual, you have thought of it all!

Betty Burns March 6, 2023 - 1:27 PM

These cards are outstanding!

Libby March 6, 2023 - 1:30 PM

The idea of the ensembles is awesome! I also really like that there is a dropdown to choose the various products without having to go to another page.

Altenew March 6, 2023 - 11:35 PM

Thank you so much for your feedback, Libby!

Veronica Hunt March 6, 2023 - 2:05 PM

What a great collection. So much variety.
