become an educator

Have you heard of the Altenew Educator Certification Program (or AECP)? I started this program in February 2019 as a way to familiarize myself with Altenew products and to learn and refine my crafting skills. I worked through all of the classes in about 6 months, working at my own pace, to finally become a Certified Educator.

Since becoming an Educator, I’ve partipated in these hops, have been asked to be a Guest Designer (and now a Design Team Member), and even created my own Altenew Academy class – Mission: Inspiration.

There are many reasons for applying to the AECP program. Perhaps you’re just looking to expand your skills and knowledge, or maybe you want to do local classes, sponsored by Altenew. Whatever your reason might be, I encourage you to explore the opportunity and see if it’s right for you!

mega thanks

There’s nothing like an Altenew “Mega” die to make a quick and easy card! The Mega Thanks fits right across a landscape-oriented card front leaving little room for anything else. But, that’s just perfect!

from the scrap bin

Both the background and the panel I used to cut the sentiment die came from my scrap bin! Can you believe that the Feeling Dotty Stencil piece was from over a year ago? I used it to create the video from this AECP project.

The background panel was left over from some recent experimenting I was doing with creating alcohol ink background panels with Yupo paper and the Artist Marker Refills. I wanted to spice it up a little, so I used the Bursting Dahlia stencil and some isopropyl alcohol to remove and change the ink, leaving the dahlia image behind.

I added just a bit more texture with some of the Satin White sequins. They add just the right amount of bling without taking away from the rest of the design.
