Teddy Bear Day at Die Cuttin' Divas

Welcome back and thank you for visiting!
This past weekend flew right by. I went to Jacksonville for the Creating Keepsakes Convention and it was a huge disappointment. I will probably not go again. I signed up to volunteer a couple months ago and when I got there they had me scheduled for  Friday (which I didn't do since I knew I would be in school) and then they were disorganized and hardly had any volunteers for Saturday, so they asked me to help immediately. I did agree, but the two instructors I helped didn't even say thank you, the CK organizer didn't offer me a lunch break (she scheduled me 6 hours straight and I had to ask to take a potty break) and they charged me tax on my "free" items.  Anyways....I so much prefer the Scrapbook Expo in Orlando ,which I will continue to go to.
Now on to better topics...
Today brings a new challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas, so here is another opportunity for you to share your newest creation.
The Challenge...Teddy Bears
I found this cute, but ordinary teddy on Doodlecharms. I cut him at 3 1/2".  I so wish I had Teddy Bear Parade!
I won this fabulous stamp from My Craft Spot. I love circular stamps!
Crinkle ribbon my my good craty friend, Karen at Little Scrap Pieces.
Other Materials:
K&Company paper
cream cardstock
Vintage Photo Distress ink
dark chocolate and Bisque liquid pearls
wiggly eyes
sequins from another bestie crafty friend, Carri
Can't wait to see what you share at Die Cuttin' Diva this week! Now go check out the Design Team'll love all the teddy bears!
 Stay Creative,


  1. Georgiana ~ Oh I am so sorry to hear all this! I would totally be disappointed too! You are to sweet and so is this adorable card! I hope you are enjoying your class this year!

  2. That really stinks about the show!! That must be why they were short volunteers, people have a bad experience and never want to come back!!

    Your teddy bear is super cute! I don't have teddy bear on parade so I have been looking at other cartridges that have one.

  3. Oh, Georgiana, I'm so sorry that something you must have looked so forward to turned out to be such a disaster; I would have never expected that from a Creating Keepsakes event. And, I think it was so nice of you to be helpful even when they didn't even seem to appreciate your help enough to even say thank you -- it would be my last time attending to; I don't blame you at all.

    On the other hand your sweet little bear is adorable and soooooo cute! I love your card!

  4. very fun bear card! sorry about the yucky weekend

  5. So sorry to hear you had a bad experience. Love your little teddy bear card. Hope school is going well!

  6. Aaaw, sorry to hear about the convention..that's a bummer! I would love sometime to check out the Scrapbook Expo again..I really enjoyed that, it's been a few yrs now.
    Your Teddy Bear card couldn't be cuter! I love the cut and the design is adorable!
    Enjoy your Wednesday!

  9. I'm sorry that happened. Strangely I've never had a desire to attend one of those (thank goodness!). I do love your bear card and always love your designs.

    Again, sorry that happened and glad to know it didn't do anything to your creative spirit, projects still looking good as always!


  10. I enjoyed my visit with you!! I ♥ your posts.

    I just had to "follow" you so not to miss anything! It would make me so happy if you would follow me too. :)

    Have a beautiful week!

    Lots of BIG Hugs,
