Stampers With An Attitude Blog Hop- Georgie

Welcome to the Stampers with an Attitude Blog Hop!  

Who are the Stampers with Attitude????  This is the team led by my upline Kimberly Moss!!!

If you are coming here from Cat's Blog you are on the right path.

Our theme this month is artwork using the Georgie Paper collection or Father's Day artwork!

I am thrilled to share with you a little (well maybe not so little) project that I made for my niece.  I created name blocks for her.  



I cut the blocks out of 2"x4" wood, then painted them purple.  I used the grey chevron pattern from the Georgie paper collection on the front of the blocks.  Then I cut her name out of Gypsy paper and Purple Glitter Paper.  I mod podged it all together.  Her name sits on top of another board which I painted a purple/grey color, and cut her birthdate out.  



This gift went along with a baby album that I created.  I used Georgie Paper Pack, Georgie Picture My Life cards and Through the Years Picture My Life cards.  I love how this album came together.  

This is the title page:

Baby I'm Worth It

BABY I'M WORTH IT...
Let me tell you a little story... 9 years ago, I was a serious scrapbooker.  I had a newborn son and I was determined to scrapbook his milestones & document our family memories.  When I stumbled upon Close To My Heart, I fell in love.  I wanted it all.  After attending and hosting parties (4 total), I thought, why not just sign up and get a discount.  So I did.  

You see, being a consultant means that I can make being creative (which is really like therapy) a priority.  PLUS- I have access to the best quality products at a discount, and this makes me even happier.  

What did I do 9 years ago?  I made an investment!  An investment into memory keeping and an investment in ME!  I WAS WORTH IT!  



AND SO ARE YOU... YOU ARE WORTH IT!
WHAT'S IN IT FOR YOU?

There are 3 different deals here:

1
 When you sign up as a New Consultant you get:
• New Consultant Kit with essential supplies for only $75 (valued at $200)
• $50 in Select Product Credit to spend on additional supplies (of YOUR choice- basically you design your own kit)


2


Submit $350 in sales in your first 30 days and you can also earn your choice of a FREE Cricut® collection OR an additional $100 in Select Product Credit 


3
The chance to earn fantastic Straight To The Top start-up rewards (T-shirt, stamp sets, a bag and MORE)




No matter which type of consultant you choose to be there is a place for YOU on my team!!  Hobbyists and Business Builders alike are welcomed with open arms.  I joined Close To My Heart 9 years ago for the discount.  I thought I could teach a class or two and share my love for paper crafting with others.   Little did I know that my passion for crafting would provide me with a steady income, allow me to build wonderful relationships with other crafters both customers and team member alike, be recognized on stage at Convention as one of the companies top leaders and mostly build a team that I adore!  Additionally, Close To My Heart has awarded with me to an all expenses paid Cruise to the South Caribbean,  a trip to Costa Rica, a trip to Hawaii, and an Eastern Caribbean cruise.  I have had the opportunity to travel with my hubby, my mom, my kids and my best friend, as well as my CTMH family.  It has been an exciting journey that is just getting started!

Stampers with an Attitude- Charlotte

Welcome to the Stampers with an Attitude Blog Hop!  

Who are the Stampers with Attitude????  This is the team led by my upline Kimberly Moss!!!

If you are coming here from Karen's Blog you are on the right path.

Our theme this month is artwork using the Charlotte paper collection or Easter artwork!

Today I would like to share two cards I have created using the Charlotte paper pack and the January Stamp of the Month- Beloved Bouquet.

For this first card, I stamped the large rose using Ruby ink, in second generation, then stamped the outline in Ruby ink.  This gives it a tone-on-tone look.  I did the same in Fern ink with the leaves.  I added the "Happy Valentines Day" sentiment as well.  At the bottom corner, I added some Grey enamel gems to finish off the card.  

My second card has the same design, using different papers, stamps and sentiments.  I love how a card design can be so versatile like that!  For this card, I stamped the smaller rose twice, using the same tone-on-tone, technique as before.  I used Sorbet and Fern inks.  I added "Thinking of you" to this card.  At the bottom corner, I added some Grey enamel gems to finish off the card.  

The January Stamp of the Month- Beloved Bouquet, is just gorgeous!  Now that you have seen it used... make sure you pick yours up TODAY!  It is available for $5 with your $50 purchase through the end of January only!

    Christmas Cards with Washi and Cricut

    It's time for some more Christmas card inspiration!

    Today I want to share a couple more cards we made at my class last week.  

    Christmas Cheer- For this card, I used up some of my Washi Tape stash to make a tree.  Chocolate Woodgrain, Gold Polka Dot & Sparkle n shine.   I added some sparkles & a Gold sequin to finish the card off.  I stamped Christmas Cheer from the Holly Jolly Christmas stamp set



    This reindeer card was inspired by Close To My Heart.  They created cards like this for an Operation Smile Auction and an event I recently attended.  The background of this card is a Paper Fundamentals pattern.  The reindeer was cut from Cricut Artistry, and adorned with some colored sparkles & gems.  I stamped Christmas Greetings from the Holly Jolly Christmas Stamp set. 

    Check back in tomorrow to hear all about my Black Friday Steals & Deals!

    Picture My Life Christmas Cards


    Last week I shared with you a couple of Christmas Cards that I created with White Pines Papers, White Pines Picture My Life Cards and Paper Fundamentals.  


    Today I want to share with you another of the cards we created!

    For this NOEL card, I took the Picture My Life Card and trimmed it down a little.  I used the Ruby Paper Fundamentals paper, and cut a bow using Cricut Artiste.  The white background paper is embossed with the Cascading Stars Folder.  



     Joy! This card was created similar to the "Peace" card I shared last week.  I cut the Picture My Life Card to fit, and cut some of the borders from other cards as accents.  I used the New England Ivy Paper Fundamentals for the background.  I added Silver Shimmer Trim and sparkles to finish the card off.

    Picture My Life cards are not just for scrapbooking, they make great cards too!

    Stampers With An Attitude Blog Hop- White Pines

    Welcome to the Stampers with an Attitude Blog Hop!  

    Who are the Stampers with Attitude????  This is the team led by my upline Kimberly Moss!!!

    If you are coming here from Wendy's Blog you are on the right path. 



    This month we are featuring the the White Pines Collection. #ctmhwhitepines

    Today I want to share with you two cards that I created using the White Pines Papers, White Pines Picture My Life Cards  and Paper Fundamentals Enchantment Pack

    On this first card, I used the Paper Fundamentals Ruby paper for the background.  I used a White Pines Picture My Life card (peace) for the main focus.  Then I took 2 other cards that had printed borders on them and cut part of the border into a banner and placed at the top of the Peace card.  I added some gold shimmer trim and gold sequins to finish it off.  
    VERY simple!


    This is my favorite card :)  I created a starburst pattern for the background of my card from White Pines Papers and Paper Fundamentals.  I placed some gold foil tape at the bottom edge.  Then I added a Picure my life card to the center, and stamped "Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas" on it (retired stamp set).  I cut 2 Christmas Trees from Cricut Artistry, and stamped them with the White Pines Scrapbooking stamp set in Fern ink, and placed them on the PML card.  



    Using Picture My Life Cards in your card making is super fun and easy!  Think outside the box, cut them up, stamp on them, add elements to them.

    For this layout, I used the (retired) Scaredy Cat papers & Compliments, adding some Purple Glitter Paper too.  

    If you like this layout, take a look at the scrapbook kit that I used to create it.  I have ONE kit left... let me know if you want it!
