Such a treat to be joining an incredible group of women for the 5th Annual Seasons Givings Blog Hop! So much thanks and appreciation to Latisha for putting this together each year and for inviting me to participate! It’s always fun for the bloggers and the hoppers, and it is especially fun to host a give away on each and every blog listed below… Just our way of saying thank you to each of our faithful readers and paper crafting community! So, thank you so very much for stopping by!
If we haven’t crossed paths before, my name is Lori Craig. I am very blessed to work with some amazing people in the papercrafting industry. Day-in-and-day-out, I am starting my tenth year as the advertising manager at Splitcoaststampers.com – the largest online resource for stamping and papercrafting with forums and the largest cardmaking gallery in the world.
I also have the pleasure of being a Copic Certification and Workshop Instructor for Imagination International – the North American distributor for Copic Marker! This will be my 8th year with Copic, and I love traveling around the country and spending my time with people who are just as crazy about color as I am! Maybe our paths have or will crossed soon! 🙂
Today I am sharing two one of my favorite projects from 2016… First, this is a card that I made as a guest designer for Verve Stamps back in the spring. The set for this card is called Beautiful Things. The flowers and the sentiments are just perfection. Orange (Copic YR04 – single color blend here!) is a favorite color, and I consider kraft cardstock to be the perfect backdrop for almost everything! 🙂
And, second favorite would probably be this one. I made these cards using a Copic Wide marker back in the spring to free-hand florals. (Original post and step-outs are HERE.) I loved the richness of the red and the acrylic look that I got with my Copic Markers hand-drawing these flowers. I also loved the crisp black mats. Clean and simple.
Check out my giveaway!
And here is a photo of my giveaway… I pulled out a few of my favorite things from Imagination International (the Copic Marker people!) because that is the one manufacturer I work with most frequently!

- two Sepia Multiliners – for journaling or sketching – water and Copic safe
- X-Press It foam mounting tape and double sided tape – for card making and papercrafting
- PLUS $25 to spend at Imagination International Inc. for Copic Markers or any of the products in the III store!
