Altenew 5th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 4 + Giveaway

Hello and welcome to Altenew’s 5th Anniversary Blog Hop. Today is day #4! First of all, Happy 5th Anniversary to Altenew!

I am so happy for Tasnim and Jennifer. Congratulations girls. When this post goes live, I am in Melbourne and I will be meeting Tasnim and Therese in person tomorrow in the workshop. Very excited. Cannot wait. My first time travelling a few thousand kms by flight for a craft workshop and meeting craft buddies. So excited!

Anyway, this is a wonderful milestone for Altenew and I like to wish them many more such anniversaries to come.

For today’s anniversary blog hop, you should have come from Seven Hills Crafts blog. If not do not worry. I will list all the participants in this blog hop towards the end of this post.

I love Altenew designs. But special place in my heart is their 3D dies. I own almost all of them. Such beautiful layered 3D florals and leaves. I am a sucker of these 3D dies. For today’s project, I used the Peony Dream 3D die set. Here is my project first.
