Day 1 - Ginger Snap Scraps Grand Opening Blog Hop



Welcome to the Ginger Snap Scraps Grand Opening Blog Hop!  I’m Pam Lash aka Mama LoveBug from LoveBug Creations.  I’m part of the crafting bunch who are celebrating Cori’s online store known as Ginger Snap Scraps.  This two-day hop will feature brands that Cori has for sale at her store www.gingersnapscraps.com
  
Cori Wagner, a stay at home mother, owns Ginger Snap Scraps and has been scrapbooking, card making and rubber-stamping for 15 years! Ginger Snap Scraps carries Cricut Cartridges always for $35 and under. They have popular brands such as My Mind's Eye, Tim Holtz, Copic, Doodlebug Design, The Twinery, Bella Blvd, Graphic 45, La-La Land, Little Yellow Bicycle, Riley & Co., Peachy Keen, and many more!

Many talented ladies have created projects to showcase some of the brands that are available in the store.  The line-up is as follows:


My projects for this first day are pocket cards that I designed for different occasions.  The first is a sympathy card – no one really likes to make these but they can be inspiring and comforting for those who need support and a smile during a trying time.  I love La-La Land images (Marci is too sweet) and have a plethora of these in my crafting arsenal.  I colored and fussy cut this one using the Chateau Lavinder DCWV paper, gel pens, pearls, a butterfly punch, my crimper, and some appropriate Pink By Design sayings.  Here’s the pocket sympathy card.



I also made an Easter pocket card for my mother who resides in a near-by nursing home.  The darling Easter La-La Land Marci was my pick for this too.  Again I fussy cut the image after coloring, and used gel pens for highlights.  I used a SU Die for Marci’s fancy frame and some appropriate images and sentiments from Jaded Blossom.  The paper was from a stash of Crate Paper – truly beautiful colors for this event! Here’s Mom’s Easter card.

Please visit Ginger Snap Scraps today and enjoy free shipping on $25 orders to the U.S. and Canada!

The card pockets are great! I love the little girls. I haven't gotten into the whole stamped images and coloring them. After seeming your I might just have to try it. Thanks for the inspiration, a fellow blog hopper :)
