Hello everyone!! Welcome to the Celebrate Kindness Blog Hop!! If you arrived here from the talented Keren’s blog you are on the right track. If you arrived here on your own, you will want to start from the beginning at our guest of honor’s blog, the wonderful Julia.
I’m here today with a super special blog hop for Julia Altermann from Just One More Card to celebrate two things:
- Reaching 10K YouTube Subscribers, and
- to say Happy Birthday to her!!!!!!
Aren’t those two fantastic reasons to celebrate!! I think so and I feel so honored to be apart of this celebration.
Are you wondering how Julia and I met? Let me give you the story!!
I can’t remember where I saw this card by Julia two years ago but when I saw it, I was in love. I had to find out more.
I visited her blog and I feel in love with her style. She had a video to show me how to create this card and I had to try it.
She introduced me to Gerda Steiner Design, because of her I purchase so many of Gerda’s stamps. Which started a friendship with Gerda and I. Thanks Julia for that!
That’s not all, Julia has introduced me to so many other great people and crafty stuff!
Let me think:
- Prismacolor Pencils
- Purple Onion Design
- Stabilo Pens
- Kit and Clowder Online Coloring Classes
- Bloobel Digi
- Polychromous Color Pencil
- Uni-Ball Signo Broad Point Gel Pen
The most important of them is her Friendship!! Although Julia is Germany and I am in the US, we have great conversations, when time permits and I am grateful for that.
So now you know some of our background let the fun begin. I decided to case one of her cards for this hop. It only makes sense she inspires me so much!
Here is Julia’s card that I cased:
Here is my card:
Happy Birthday Julia!!
I wish you many, many, many more!!
I created another card just because Julia is that wonderful!! Clean and simple is my style so that is what I wanted to create for Julia!
Take a look:
Just for you Julia!! You are wonderful and I’m so glad to have met you.
Congrats on your successful YouTube channel and Happy Birthday!!
Wait I have one more card for you:
This card was so easy to create!! All I did was emboss on kraft cardstock. I think Julia will love this one.
