Altenew: A Year In Review: Crafters’ Edition Blog Hop #2 + Giveaway 

2022 was a WONDERFUL ALTENEW year! I am pleased to show you a few of my favorites from this year. If you want to start at the beginning go to the Altenew Blog. If you are following along, you got her from the magnificent Emily Midgett . Your next stop on the blog post is terrific Therese Calvird.

Now — Come along with me as we travel memory lane.

First up is the Craft-A-Flower Orion Geranium that is one of the monthly subscriptions for which Altenew is so well known. This one just came to life with some purple glitter paper on black. These layered flowers are so easy to put together.

And all the new foil plates that came out in 2022 are to die for! I absolutely love the starburst of the Rainbow Burst Hot Foil Plate with two different blue foils. Topped with some blue sequins and a glittery sentiment to finish it out.

This last one is just plain fun with embossing folders, alcohol inks and gold embossing powder…all put together with some fun folds — so much easier to do than it looks. It uses the Craft Your Life Project Kit: Fragrant Florals. The Craft Your Life Project Kits are another monthly subscription and you get so, so much for your money. With embossing folders, stamps, dies, and stencils your creativity can soar.

Thanks for coming along with me in reviewing 2022 creativity. If you have any questions, please contact me. Happy New Year!

    Your cards are so lovely. Something for every reason, I believe. My favorite, tho, is the Orion Geranium in purple glitter! That card is stunning. You have really showcased these ALTENEW products. Thanks for your inspiration and have a Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year! 💜💜💜
