Cardmaking Fails and How to Fix them!

The Altenew February 2020 Release and how to salvage a project when it all goes wrong!

Hi Hollowers – a big welcome if you are joining from Zinia’s blog!

Today we are excited to reveal a new Altenew February 2020 release! Which means we are hopping with some very talented crafters and we have prizes!

Altenew provided me with some supplies in this video but all thoughts, opinions and projects are my own

Before we begin I wanted to let you know where you can restart the hop if you are lost, if you want to start at the beginning click here.  Don’t forget with an Altenew Blog Hop comes a giveaway, you’ll find that info below too.

Altenew February 2020 Release

Today’s video has a funny story; I set out to make a completely different project than how it finished.  I did consider starting the video over but in the end I decided that it was more important to me to show how you could rescue the project and make it into something you loved and I really do love how this turned out.


I also want to share the new double sided self healing mat in the Altenew February 2020 Release its a great option for using your craft mat on; as I mentioned the draw back for me is the lack of heat but every crafters need is different and I enjoyed giving it a go; it’s now on the sewing table and fits my needs perfectly there!

See it’s not all perfect cards and right for time for us ‘professional crafters’ either! But keep going you can still make a beautiful project! Since filming this video I have played with the Altenew watercolors more and I really like working with them, it’s easy to get well blended vivid results which I love!  I have another Altenew video coming up on 12 ways to use one of their stamp sets; I really do love their supplies!
