Milestone Birthday Blog Hop Celebrating Ginger Ropp!
Hello, Friends! Today I’m particpating in a Milestone Birthday Blog Hop for the Queen of Papercrafting, Ginger Ropp! You should be coming here from Ginny Nemchak’s fabulous blog.
Most of us know Ginger by her blog and YouTube handle “My Sister’s Scrapper.” Since Ginger can’t throw a big milestone birthday bash this year, she decided to have a little birthday blog hop and invited me and two of my other favorite creative sisters to participate. So Annette Green (Annette’s Creative Journey) and Ginny Nemchak (Polly’s Paper Studio) and I are joining forces to make Ginger’s Milestone birthday memorable!
Before we dig in, I just want to sing Ginger’s praises for a moment. I’ve followed her on YouTube and her blog for a very long time now. She never fails to inspire me. Her paper engineering skills are off the charts, and her video tutorials are fabulous. But more than that, Ginger is an incredibly kind and generous person with a great sense of humor. I got to meet her :”in real life” at Creativation in 2018, and she’s as warm and real and funny as I had hoped. Thanks, Ginger, for all the many ways your friendship has blessed my life! I truly love and appreciate you!
Authentique Hooray Slightly Snarky Birthday Card
Slightly snarky birthday cards are always fun to make, give and receive. Today I have a quick and easy 10 minute tutorial that will show you how to make this cute retro style card.
The paper is from Authentique’s Hooray collection. I love the aqua and red color palette and all the fun little birthday patterns.
Here’s a peek at the inside. I added a little die cut gift card holder and a wee note card, just for fun.
The video tutorial below will show you how to make this fun card.
I also have a little giveaway over on my YouTube Channel, so you’ll want to be sure to check that out. To be entered in the random drawing, you must be subscribed to my YouTube channel and leave a comment. That’s it! You’ll have to watch the video to find out what I’m giving away!
Now hop on over and see what the birthday girl, Ginger Ropp, has prepared for you. I know she is doing a giveaway as well! Hooray for birthdays!
Thanks so much for helping us celebrate Ginger’s birthday!
