Making cards and teaching others has been my passion for over 10 years. When I discovered the AECP it offered me an opportunity to enhance my skills. It has truly been so much fun & I look forward to more opportunities.

I have just recently gotten seriously into cardmaking and was super excited to be part of AECP. I have learned countless techniques from expert cardmakers and fallen totally in love with the Altenew family.

Teaching paper crafting for over 4 years, I entered AECP to gain professional growth. The video lessons suggest excellent techniques. My students agree that Altenew products are innovative and inspiring.

In AECP, I found exceptional classes, encouraging challenges, outstanding gallery, very supportive leaders, and kind colleagues. All these and more helped me improve myself and teach others the beauty of card making.

AECP has expanded my skill base and given me new techniques to share with fellow crafters. I'm enjoying learning, trying new things and making new friends who love Altenew as much as I do.

Through AECP I learned new techniques, but I also learned to use old techniques in a more efficient and precise way. All of these at my own pace, on my own time, from wherever I wanted!

I'm so grateful to be a part of this community.


I am a Christian, married 33 yrs with two beautiful, married daughters. I have been crafting, in different ways, all my life and just fell in love with making cards.

I've been a scrapbooker for 20 years, dabbling in card making along the way. I entered AECP for the opportunity to learn new techniques in paper crafting. The best part of it all is being able to share with others.
