by Altenew

Hello, crafty friends!

We are so over the moon to introduce another awesome designer joining the Altenew family.

Without further ado, please join us in welcoming the amazingly talented Amanda Baldwin! We have been huge fans of Amanda's creations! If you have been checking out our release blog hops, you have probably seen her stunning cards and layouts. Of course, we just had to invite her to join our Mixed Media Design Team and Video Inspiration Team!

Get to Know Amanda!

Amanda is an accomplished Australian papercrafting and mixed media artist located in sunny Adelaide, South Australia. She is a full-time studio teacher and spends her days teaching children's art classes at Little Picassos. In her free time, she loves crafting, photography, reading, wearing distressed denim, and drinking coffee.

She lives on the beach with her very patient husband, darling two children, and sweet doxie pup! Amanda loves working with color, pattern, and floral designs. Her style is fresh and contemporary with a beautiful feminine twist, but as a creative Gemini, she’s also known to mix things up and go messy and wild!

New Video Series: Featured Florals with Amanda

Not only will Amanda be bringing her beautiful projects to the Altenew scene, but she will also be starting an exciting new video series on our YouTube channel that you are sure to love.

A fun and fresh new series focusing on florals! Get crafty with Amanda as she highlights the versatility and beauty of flowers in paper crafting. Each episode will inspire crafters to create their own floral projects, plus you get to watch Amanda craft in her style – modern, beautiful, clean & contemporary, with an eye for color and details, and a twist of femininity!

Here are a few examples of Amanda's gorgeous creations:
