Ultimate Challenge Blog Hop with 18 Challenge Blogs + Giveaway

by May Sukyong Park

Ultimate Challenge Blog Hop_720x396

Welcome to the Altenew Ultimate Challenge Blog Hop! We have been planning it for months and today is the day!

We are teaming up with various challenge blogs to bring you a fantastic blog hop that you won’t want to miss! There will be an abundance of inspiration and of course, opportunities to win prizes along the way.

What an AMAZING line up! We have 18 awesome challenge blogs who are joining us today with their creativity. Before we start, I wanted to share how I came up with this special blog hop:

I used to enter cardmaking challenges for more than three years since I started cardmaking in 2011. Later I was on a couple of challenge design teams for about two years. I've learned so many things by entering challenges every week. And I've also met so many talented friends through entries over the years. I've always wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU to all the amazing people who run the challenges by putting in all their hard work to inspire us all.

I've been brainstorming for months to find a way we could let people know how those amazing challenge blogs are, how we could encourage more people to play along with challenges, how to let the owners/designers of each challenge blog know we appreciate what they are doing to bring inspiration on a regular basis, and how to let people know that there are so many great challenge blogs worth checking out.

Most importantly I wanted to let everyone know that how lucky we are to be a part of this amazing paper crafting community with the kind, sweet, inspiring, and supportive people.


To celebrate this blog hop, we are giving away $35 gift certificates to FIVE lucky winners. Winners will be chosen at random from the comments left on any of the blogs listed below and will be announced on the Altenew blog on October 17th, 2016.

0908_free_mini_stampset_smallSpecial Offer:
