A Year In Review Inspiration Challenge

by May Sukyong Park

Happy December! Where has this year gone, it seems to have gone by in the blink of an eye. We have also had so many great things and inspiration here on the Altenew blog, so much so we wanted to host an Inspiration Challenge that takes a look back at all of the other Inspiration Challenges that have taken place over the past year.


So we are excited to host A Year In Review Inspiration Challenge this month. We want you to take inspiration from one of the past Inspiration Challenge photos and be inspired, maybe you take the colors, theme or something else from the photo, however you are inspired is fine by us.

New projects please , so no back-linking, we would really like to see new, fresh designs using the inspiration.

altenew-inspiration-challengeWe want to give a big shout-out to our amazing designers who hosted the inspiration challenge for the last 1o months and shared their talent and inspiration with us.


Play Along:

Make a card, a tag, a layout or any other project based on your favorite inspiration photo above. You may use either the colors, the composition, the elements, the texture or any combination to create your project.


  • Altenew products should be the focus, but other companies’ products can be used.
  • Make sure to use our challenge image above on your blog post.
  • Include a link back to the Altenew Inspiration Challenge post.
  • When uploading your project, make sure you link your entry post, not your entire blog.
  • You may enter as many times as you wish!
  • Challenge ends on Saturday, December 31st at 11:55 pm EST.


After the challenge closes, FOUR WINNERS will be selected. Each will receive a $30 gift certificate to spend at www.altenew.comWinners will be announced on Wednesday, January 11th, 2017.

WOW, I just realized I have 9 of your stamp sets (not sure yet which are missing) and many of your stamp sets. Loved looking thru your site as I found you thru Jennifer McGuire. Nice projects. I’ll visit more.
