Altenew 2nd Anniversary Blog Hop!

Altenew birthday
Hey!

Are you ready to get this party started?! If you've no idea what I'm on about, then you must have been hiding under the rock for the past couple of days as Altenew are celebrating their 2nd anniversary in style with three days of awesome blog hops with prizes and inspiration galore!


It's the final day of the blog hops and you should have hopped here from Ellen Hutson. If you haven't, then be sure to start out at the Altenew blog!

For my blog hop project I wanted to make a birthday card for Altenew and tried to convey exactly what it is I love about their products (and the talented Jen and Tasnim – the brains of Altenew!) I love their ability to be contemporary, edgy, modern, graphic, bold and beautiful through their designs. With this in mind, I've paired a beautiful lily (layered of course, in true Altenew style) with my favourite, modern sentiment set, Label Love. Oh, and I've added texture in the form of using Altenew's amazing Woodgrain White cardstock. :)

Right, I'm not going to babble as there's hopping to be done so here are the full deets of the fun we have in store for you as part of the celebrations:

Altenew special offers
Prizes
Leave a comment along each blog on the blog hop for the chance to win one of THREE prize packs valued at over $100 from Altenew! This amazing prize contains not-yet-released stamp sets!


There are also eight awesome companies celebrating with us, and they're kindly offering the following:
Phew! That's a lot of prizes! Leave a comment on each blog hop stop by Tuesday April 12th 2016 11:59pm EST to be in with a chance of winning. 13 winners will be chosen at random from the blogs and winners will be announced on the Altenew blog on April 14th. Good luck!

Next on your hopping adventure is the fabulous Joni Andaya!
