Hello, crafty friends!

We introduced Debby Hughes as one of our new designers a couple of days ago. Today we have another very talented designer joining the Altenew family.

She needs no introductions, seriously. Her bright cheerful colors and CAS designs are so pleasing to the eyes and we all love her incredible ink blending. Please join us in welcoming the amazingly talented Laura Bassen:


Laura Bassen lives in Illinois with her husband and five children. She studied graphic design in college and started her blog in 2008. What started as a hobby has turned into a dream job. She loves clean, simple and colorful designs. She loves to tell stories and make people smile in her many card making videos.

I have been a big fan of Laura, not only as an artist, but as a person since I started making cards in 2011; I’m beyond thrilled to have her on the Card Design Team. Here are a few examples of Laura’s beautiful cards:

Focus Product: Floral Shadow Stamp Set

Focus Product: Layered Lily Stamp Set

Focus Product: Peony Bouquet Stamp Set

Focus Product: Tulip Stamp Set

Focus Product: Big World Stamp Set

We can not wait to see more of Laura’s work with Altenew products!

Make sure to stop by Laura’s blog to see more cards and connect with her on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and YouTube. You won’t regret it!
