Rubeena's Crafting Anniversary Blog Hop DAY TWO + Giveaways

09:00


Welcome to Rubeena’s Crafting Anniversary 2-Day Blog Hop! This hop is epic with more than 70 guests and over $1,000 in sponsored prizes! Not only are we celebrating four years since Rubeena first discovered cardmaking but also crafting in general. This industry is made up of wonderful individuals who are creative, inspirational, kind, and incredibly supportive! Hop along so you can learn about why we create and how much joy it brings us!
You should have come from Ankita Gupta's blog or you can start your way here and make a full circle through all the blogs.



I was lucky enough to meet Ruby at Creativation last year. She has an amazing talent for beautiful photography, watercolour and making cards that are jaw-dropping! Ruby and I share something in common, we both started cardmaking and blogging about four years ago! Being creative is definitely an outlet for anxiety and something that I go to when feeling stressed to calm down and create.


Before I left on vacation, I was feeling the stress of packing, organizing and getting things ready so I took some time to head to the park with the most amazing view and watercolour a few images. I love the pre-embossed images by Concord and 9th for easy and quick cards and I decided to watercolour the Hello Lovely stamp for a more complex image. 


In celebration of this anniversary, we have several amazing sponsors. Let’s thank them for their generosity! Winners will be randomly selected from comments left on all the blogs. The winners will be announced by Wednesday, September 5 on this page. Winners will have up to 2 weeks to contact Rubeena at ararerubycrafts@gmail.com to claim their prize before another winner is selected.
