Altenew 7th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 2 + Giveaway (over $1,400 in Total Prizes)

9 April 2021



Welcome to the day 2 of Altenew's 7th Anniversary Blog Hop. If you have come from Terri Koszler's blog you are right on track. You can start the hope over on the Altenew Blog.

I have been on the Altenew team for many years and am amazed at each release. The products push me a little further each time and spark my crafty fire. When I prepare my projects I love using notebooks to jot down my ideas. I decided to customise an old notebook which I hadn't used yet for my Altenew ideas and deadlines. 

This project was super simple as I just wanted to create a new cover for my notebook. I cut down some chalkboard cardstock which is nice and thick and added an Altenew decal. I wrote my name with a white pen and that was it. Super easy and now I have a custom notebook for all my Altenew ideas.





You can see how I created my notebook in the video below or watch it in HD on YouTube. 



Here are some my favourite projects from the previous year created with Altenew products.

Over $1,400 in total prizes! Altenew is giving away a $70 gift certificate to 5 lucky winners and one Altenew Academy class to 15 lucky winners. There are also 19 awesome companies/crafty friends who are celebrating with us, and they are offering the following prizes:
