Altenew: A Year In Review Blog Hop + Giveaway

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas time. I am taking a break from my regular blog posts as I enjoy some family time, but I do have some scheduled posts for you including this one. Happy holidays !


It’s time for a year in review with Altenew, and we all share our 4 favorite cards using Altenew products. There are giveaways too along with inspiration so hop hop hop!

This year I was proud to be an Altenew ambassador, which gave me the opportunity to share lots of beautiful cards with their products that I absolutely love. Keep in mind that being an ambassador does not mean they pay me for posts ( I don’t do paid/sponsored posts), but I do get free products. And since I am a big Altenew fan … this is heaven!

It was hard for me to narrow it down to just 4 cards, but I just had to choose some with their wonderful flowers, one from their Christmas collection and of course the one with the ninja… just because it’s so much fun!

video tutorials

There are video tutorials for each and every one of those cards. For these videos. close-up photos and products lists click the links below:

the purple flower card

the pink flower card

the poinsettia card

    Hi Vicky, looking forward to 2019 and another year full of wonderful projects from you. I have a question… there is a small machine you use, I think it is hand cranked, it may be a light seafoam green in color, you use it to apply double-sided tape to medium to larger sized pieces of paper, you actually run the piece of paper through the little machine, what is that called and/or where can I get one? thank you so much.

    Vicky, I always enjoy your pots, cards, videos, and beautiful accent! I am glad I found your talent this past year and look forward to seeing what you create in 2019! My favorite card of your four cards shown here is the purple flower. That is delightful and showcased so nicely. The ninja is fun and makes me wish my son was into that but he is more of a outdoor kid who likes forts and airsoft battles πŸ™‚ ! Thank you and happy New year!
