    I just recently started using Altenew products and they don’t disappoint. Very nice stamps, stencils and inks.


  • Altenew

    We are so happy that you liked your purchase, Zana! We hope you get to try the glue tape soon and that we get to see your projects. We’re sure that they’ll be beautiful <3

    For Christmas I ordered the Altenew scoreboard and the glue tape based on Jennifer’s reccommendations. I am very pleased with the scoreboard; but haven’t tried the tape yet.


  • Altenew

    Thank you so much for your kind words, Sara. We agree – we live for versatile sentiments that can be used as accents or focal points! We hope you get to try the Trailblazing Inks soon! :) Can’t wait to see what you create <3

    Everything that I have of this list, I agree! Versatile greetings, especially. I only order recently released products a few times a year, things I love enough at gust sight to not wait for sale a good bit later, and this was one of those for last year and is my favorite sentiment set k. I love that you are releasing sentiment sets in various fonts in very versatile Word sizes like this one; small enough to have a lot of versatility in placement, big enough to be the main element in some designs, and all shirts of ways to use it. I’m definitely going to get Sweet sentiments too, and maybe the sentiment die set released today. And yet I hope you release more in each of these stores/ sizes (it sounds like Versatile has been successful enough for that at least! )

    I hadn’t till now bought many word dies, because I am very picky about what foods appeal to me. In a poll you did over a year ago, asking about new product tools we’d like to see, words in this small but large really flexible size was and still is a huge desire of mine, and I was just waiting for the right font styles to come along for me. With shadows is important, because I have to out of this world love a word die set to get it without that option, so I can use them on busier backgrounds/ have more design options.

    The scoring board is the other thing I have, and I adore it so far! Well thought out size, and longer than the mini Scor pal which makes it much better for longer cards.

    I know I want the trailblazing ink, glue tape, and featured sentiments die set, even though I may never get the sentiment strips sets (personal font preferences) because I have a variety of other one liners that will work with them.
