Be My Pal...Always

Hello Crafty Friends,

I am on Fall/Thanksgiving Break this week (Yippee) and I am really enjoying myself already. This is the first time we have had all week off and I sure am glad since I have been so involved with school this year. I went to MFT on Saturday, took a card class with Pam, and bought a bunch of new stamps and dies. Now I am playing with them. Once day (sooner than later) I am going to have to work on the camera/lighting adjustments. I need to figure out how to get bright, crisp pictures again with these new LED lights. Any suggestions?!?!

Today's project...
I wanted to join a challenge at My Favorite Things, so I decided to give the sketch a try.

This week's sketch from My Favorite Things.

I used MFT Tiny Checks paper, Happy Pawlidays puppy stamp, and Polar Pals stamped sentiment. I used Illustrator markers by Spectrum Noir (Poppy, Sorbet, Sandstone, and Golden Brown). I added some Clear Glitter Wink of Stella to the white part of Santa's hat.
 Other Materials:
white cardstock
Versafine Onyx Black ink
MFT ~ Square Frames
MFT ~ Blueprints 15 and 27
red self-adhesive pearls

Be sure to come back tomorrow for Die Cuttin' Diva's weekly challenge. I have a project to share! It has been way too long and I am thrilled to be able to participate again.

Stay Creative,
Georgiana

Thankful For You Crow From Miss Kate Cuttables

Hello Everyone,

I sure hope everyone is doing well. I have been EXTREMELY busy with school (LOTS of changes and student needs this year), which is why I am having a tough time getting myself to the craft room to create on a regular basis. I have made a few projects (Create a Critter baby shower ensemble and a couple cupcake birthday cards) during the past month and I went to a class at My Favorite Things, but didn't take pictures to post. Also, my hubby got me new LED lights for my photo box (I broke one of my old lights during Hurricane Irma) and I haven't figured out how to adjust the settings on my camera YET (that is why my photo coloring is a bit off).

We have a week off at Thanksgiving and two weeks off for Winter Break; therefore, I am being optimsitic that I will find time to create then. My daughter will be home from college too, so I may even have a crafting buddy. That would make me happy!

Here is my Design Team project...
Today is my day to share at Miss Kate Cuttables.


I used the following sketch from Die Cuttin' Divas.

I used the crow behind pumpkin file by Miss Kate Cuttables. The stamped sentiment is by Scrappy Moms Stamps.

Mouse Pumpkin at Miss Kate Cuttables

Hello Miss Kate Cuttables Fans,

Hard to believe it is already October. The end of first quarter ends at school next Friday (the 13th). Although Hurricane Irma caused us to miss 6 days of school, we are still plugging away to get all the material covered. I have been extremely busy with a diverse group of students and never seem to have enough time in the day to do everything I want to do. My principal just asked to me to consider mentoring a new teacher (possibly at another school), so time will need to be carefully scheduled to accomplish everything.

Today is my day to share at Miss Kate Cuttables.  

Here is my Design Team project...
I told my husband that I am looking forward to sending my daughter a care package this month before Halloween. I claimed one of his boxes and put it on the side, so I can start gathering some goodies when I go to the store this weekend. I am going to include this card since she is a BIG Disney fan. I think she will like the pumpkin with mouse ears.

I used the Mouse Pumpkin file by Miss Kate Cuttables.

I used the following sketch from Die Cuttin' Divas.

The stamped sentiment is by Scrappy Moms Stamps.

School is Cool at Miss Kate Cuttables

Hello Everyone,

I am preparing this post ahead of time just in case the power goes out with Hurricane Irma. As of right now, my daughter, my dog, and I are doing well. It is raining and getting windy, but we are safe with electricity. Hopefully everything will continue to be good. 

The new challenge at Miss Kate Cuttables starts tonight, and remember there is a free file every week! Hopefully you will be able to join us during the next two weeks with your own creation.

This Month's Challenge...
~ Back to School~

Here is my Design Team project...
I had another student send me a message on our hurricane day off that he was using the Achieve3000 computer program and he was Florida and Worldwide Leader.  I am so excited that I have students that care about their learning. Our school district issued a no homework policy for all elementary students this year, so any work the students do at home has to be optional or incomplete work they didn't finish in class. Makes me happy that some are going above and beyond! Those students will definitely make great gains. 

The happy book file is by Miss Kate Cuttables. The stamped sentiment is by Pink by Design and the Lori Whitlock box was cut with my Cameo.
Hope you will join us at Miss Kate Cuttables for the "Back to School" challenge. The other design team members are ready to support students, teachers, paraprofessionals, and even the bus drivers this school year. Be sure to check out ALL the variety!

Bushels of Apples

Hello Crafty Friends,

I am sitting in my craft room while the storm is beating down upon us, but I am staying busy while the power is still on. I was doing laundry and dishes earlier so nothing would be sitting around in case we don't have water later. The news just said millions of people in the south are without electricity and we still have many hours before it is close to north central Florida. I am not worried about flooding, just trees/branches falling since we have so many big and beautiful old trees. Our power lines are above ground in our neighborhood, so the risk is higher. I will keep you posted as long as I can! Stay safe my fellow Floridian crafty friends! 

I decided to track down some current challenges and came up with a card perfect for the upcoming season. Fall is my favorite season not just because it's my birthday, but the weather cools off.

I used the following sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.

The apple basket is from Too Cute by Jessica (she is going out of business, so her files are really cheap if you need any). The stamped sentiment is by Bug Bites. All the stitched dies are by My Favorite Things.

Other Challenges:

Thanks for stopping by and checking in on me! I appreciate all your thoughts during this time. 
Take Care,
Georgiana
