Inking Royalty Blog Hop – So Thankful

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s October Blog Hop! There are so many ways to say, “Thank you!” – today’s blog hop is filled with projects that share our gratitude. Stampin’ Up!’s catalogs (both the Annual Catalog and the Holiday Catalog) are filled with so many fun products that help us show our gratitude – and we are excited to share our creations with you today. After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

The first weekend in October is World Card Making Day. Yes, that is a real thing! I traveled to Atlanta, Georgia to be with 70+ Stampin Up demonstrators to celebrate WCMD and learn new things. This adorable folded pocket ‘purse’ was not part of the daytime festivites, but shared by a Demo later in the evening when we were all sitting around making cards for a local charity. I felt it was just too cute not to share with you all and I think it makes a wonderful Thankful for You gift to give this time of year.

To color the simple notecards I put inside I used the new Stampin Blends alcohol markers available for purchase on November 1. These markers, each color has a light and dark, are just wonderful and the fact that they match our already outstanding Stampin Up colors makes it even more fabulous. Check out the information at the bottom of my post for ordering

I created a video to show how the pockets are folded and the cards I put inside. I really appreciate your comments on my blog and my video and I will answer any questions you might have on my posts.

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop,
