Altenew 8th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 1 + Giveaway (over $1,900 in Total Prizes)

 Hello friends! It's a super special blog hop that you don't want to miss.....

 
Today's is a very special day as Altenew is celebrating 8th anniversary!

Welcome to Altenew 8th Anniversary Blog Hop! If you arrive from the blog of Keisha Charles, are  in the right place! All the details about this blog hop, please visit Altenew Card Blog
  
It's hard to believe that Altenew has tuned 8! Time flies when you are having fun. I had the pleasure of knowing the founders Tasnim and Jen way before they joined forces to start the company. I admire both of them and their huge talent. It is no wonder that Altenew is one of the awesome companies in the industry.
 
 I am using this Project Kit  Dynamic Blossoms for my blog hop project.

Altenew-PK Dynamic Blossoms
 
There are many things that set Altenew apart from other companies. That is, Altenew is always ahead of trends on product designs. For instance, the coordinating stencil and embossing folder are a match made in heaven. AND they are all part of a Project Kit (like Dynamic Blossoms) that is released every month.

Altenew-PK Dynamic Blossoms1
 
And next? It is the TOOLS that Altenew comes up with. They are well-designed and great quality. The Ink-blending brushes I used are by far the best that I have come across.

PK Dynamic Blossoms
The chiseled ink-blending brushes are perfect for adding accents and colors. The sentiment says it all "You are amazing"! Happy 8th Anniversary, Altenew!
