2nd Annual Ultimate Pink Blog hop

Hello friends,

Today, I am participating in the 2nd Annual Ultimate Pink Blog Hop I am joining together with other Stampin Up demonstrators around the world to turn the blog world Pink to bring more awareness to this horrible disease called Breast Cancer.  We all know that Breast cancer knows no bounds so we wanted to share just a little bit support for all those who are suffering and living with this horrible disease.

Now I decided I wanted to do an old fashion top with a touch of aww. Atleast that is how I feel about this card.  I was trying to just pass a node to tradition.

This was my original card and I just felt it needed a little more bling I had come up with and then I received this adorable sequin trim which is what set this to a wonderful heart necklace.

I want to let you know that you are at Stamp with Georgia in this hop and there is a list below that will help guide you along the way.  I want to personally let all those who are either suffering or have survived or have lost someone to this horrible disease, you are never alone.

May you feel all the love and support that you need and want in abundance.

Make sure you are on  my mailing list as the tutorial for this will be one of the tutorials in my newsletters this month. 

Happy Stamping!

Halloween Blog Hop

Hi Friends,

I want to welcome you to the Blog Hop for September 2017. This month our theme is Halloween! You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog – Stamp with Georgia or may have come from the person previous to me. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup at the end of my post will help you move along from blog to blog so that you are able to see all the projects.

The stamp set that I used to create my Halloween card is Spooky Cat this is in the new Occasions catalog that released September 1st. All I can say it is so much fun and I looked and saw the face of a cat as the face to my pumpkins!
 I started with what are for me the traditional Halloween colors. Pumpkin Pie and Early Espresso with the Early Espresso run through my Big Shot with the Woodland embossing folder. I love the texture that it gives the paper and it is just a hint of fall.

I used some thinlets from the Swirly Scribbles set to create my pumpkins. I love that the Pumpkin Pie cardstock is the absolute perfect coloring
However, the cat face works for me since I love my kitties.

The final pieces were wrapping some jute twine around and adding some more layers with the pumpkins!

Simple and cute.

Thanks for taking part in our blog hop, there are so many amazing ideas and inspiration you don’t want to miss. Remember that currently, you are at my blog – Stamp with Georgia

Happy Stamping!

World cardmaking day is October 7th

Hi friends,

I am sharing with you an article explaining what World cardmaking day is.

How will I be celebrating? I will be stamping with stampers from 8 different states at a Regional Stampin Up event on Saturday! I absolutely love this event every time it is offered. Gets me to think outside of my own box!

What is World cardmaking day 
We get them on special occasions, holidays and birthdays, they sit upon our mantle and some of them even get tucked into our store of special memories. Whether it’s Christmas or our Birthday, we always look inside for the gift card from Santa Claus or the money from a grandparent, often before we’ve even read the card (what a social faux pas! You should feel ashamed!) But have you ever considered making your own card? World Card Making Day reminds us that the best gifts come from the heart, and the hands and vision of the people we love, so get out there and try making a card of your own!

History of World Card Making Day..
Cards have played an important role in social circles for hundreds of years, playing a role as a thoughtful gift all the way to a necessary part of proper etiquette. Consider, if you will, the calling card of the Victorian era, a term that has become so ubiquitous that the signature element of a bomb-maker or a criminal is said to be their ‘calling card’. A small piece of paper bearing ones name and often a decoration of some kind, the calling card (Also known as a visiting card) was presented to the servants of a household that it might be delivered to the masters of the house to announce visitors.
It was this era of propriety that also developed the concept of a dance card, a card specifically carried by women to fill out with the names of the men they intended to dance with that evening. After all, with so many interested parties it just made sense to keep track of them so that you could, in earnest, indicate that your dance card was full and thus politely decline an interested suitor.
Calling Cards, Dance Cards, Business Cards, Greeting Cards, RSVP Cards, there are a million and more types of cards and could there be anything more exciting than learning to make your own? World Card Making Day encourages you to do just that.

How to celebrate World Card Making Day
The best way to celebrate World Card Making Day is, of course, to learn how to make your own cards! There are often card making classes to be had at craft stores nearby, and if you have friends who are into scrapbooking they’ll be more than happy to teach you how to go about making your own cards. The only limit to your cards is your imagination, so let your creativity fly and send your friends and family personalized cards on World Card Making Day!

So now if you would be so kind as to leave me a comment as to whether you knew about this awesome day or not, what you will be doing to celebrate and what you think of having a day to celebrate globally this craft?

Happy stamping!

RemARKably Created Blog Hop: September 17, 2017

Hello friends,

Here is my next hop: Falling for Fall......

I absolutely love that I have been able to join the Fall RemARKably Creative Blog Tour with Demonstrators around the world.  Please make sure to stop at each blog to truly get some inspiration for your projects using products from Stampin' Up!s current Holiday catalog.

Fall is my favorite season slightly warm with some cool almost cold evenings. Well for my part I could not just do one - instead I did 3.  I absolutely love the Painted Harvest stamp set and designer series paper.  

I recently discovered through watching You Tube and looking through Pinterest the art of stamping on candles and I absolutely adore how my fall one turned out.

I created this little box for my husband who likes this window box and this one I filled with his favorite candy corn, Crushed curry and designer paper the Painted Autumn designer series paper = just such a fresh new way to dress up my box.

Finishing out my group of projects is a greeting card. I love the twine with the sunflowers just gives it a country feel which is where I enjoyed Autumn the most which was on my Grandparents farm in the mountains. Such beautiful colors.

I hope you enjoyed this stop along the way to all the various projects.

Happy Stamping!
