Episode 218 - Sympathy Card using George

Happy Saturday Everyone!!

Life has sure kept me busy this week and guess what???  The kids have only been out of school for one week!  It seems like forever!!  LOL!  We are having a great time, though.

This card was brought to you by a couple of viewer requests.  I hope you enjoy it!

I will be drawing the winner of Forever Young on Monday.  Good luck everyone!  There is A LOT in store for you next week.  Karlee arrives on Tuesday and then I have A TON of other fun stuff to announce!  

Don't forget that My Pink Stamper LIVE will be broadcast from HERE this Friday, June 11th, at 8:00 PM CST.  You won't want to miss this one!!!

On to the video....

  4. I have to remember to use black more often. It can be used all year round, for any occassion I think. I'm also glad you highlighted the "first" cricut cart!

  11. Great card Robyn. Those colors are always perfect together! As for being busy, I try not think about it because all of the upcoming things in the summer take my mind to August....how can that be when the summer just started????

  12. Robyn, I never would have thought to use those colors on a sympathy card.... But they seem to work... the card looks lovely! Thanks for the video! Have a great day!!! :)

  15. Gorgeous card! Could you tell me the adhesives you used? I need to branch out and get some better adhesives and I'm not sure where to look.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Not sure I would use those colors for a sympathy card, but for another type of card it would be great. The pink is just too bright for me. I do like that it is a relatively easy to make/quick card.

  17. This card is so neat & EASY! I have George and always used it for letters only. I didn't know how to use it besides cut out letters! LOL Thanks for showing!!

  26. Unfortunately, sympathy cards are always needed, but not always made. This one seems to celebrate life instead of just acknowledging the passing of a life. Thanks for sharing -

  27. Wouldn't have thought about using the silhouette in that way! Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Thanks for reminding me that I need to make a sympathy card and giving me an easy method to create one. Sympathy cards are always hard for me!!

  63. Beautiful card Robyn and i love the colours you have chosen.Wahoo to the good old George cart it still gets used a lot in my house.

    ReplyDelete
  64. This is such a useful card. Thank you for showing what the George can do, I usually use only one flower and on blackout - I will certainly experiment with it from now on.

    The colours you used are perfect as a sympathy card.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Robyn -- LOVE THE PINK & BLACK. I find so many sympathy cards are in very subdued, depressing colors -- this is a great alternative! What a great uplifting & hopeful card to send to someone at such a sad time in their life! THANKS!

  94. Robyn,
    I really enjoy your videos and I can't believe that someone has more pink stuff than me!
    My favorite cartridges are the Paper Doll Dressup and Everyday Paper Dolls. I've been using them lately to send to my two grandsons who are 4 and 5. I cut out several bodies/shoes/hair, etc. and then also cut out a bunch of outfits and costumes. (I have to cut two of each so that there aren't arguments!)According to their mom, they're having a blast putting them together.
    So that's my favorite (this week) Please keep the videos coming- Thanks!
