Time to RISE

Welcome to the new home for RG Studio 360! I feel like I have been talking about this forever and the time is finally here. You have no ideas what this means to us. We wanted to create a place where not only you felt proud to share with friends but that also inspired you and motivates you to create and capture. Before we get started can I just say WOW to all the amazing and talented designers who have joined in on our very first RG Blog Hop! Lots of amazing prizes and inspiration, thank you ladies. Also, a big shout out to our developers, what a task this has been, although we will find little things here and there its perfect in my eyes, so thank you Iron Springs Design!

You have seen amazing projects created with our newest download “Foxy Fall” throughout this hop. For this your final stop I wanted to highlight the importance of the PDF Mini. I just love the mini’s they allow you to create the smaller size projects or to group your downloads in such a way that you can create this fun card for that special bunch! Love all the layers and the details this project brings. It’s like a party you have been invited too that screams family, gathering and gratitude. Now to find my feather and head on over to this fun fall celebration…

Love the idea of framing something like this because it highlights your message/story. This story is all about family and friends and we are all here to say “happy fall Y’all!” I also had a Pocahontas moment with the leaves flying through the air… (I know Disney fan before and now) I used some darling paper from the Simple Stories fall launch “Forver Fall” just love that collection and the color pallet is so yummy!

So why outlined? Well a few months ago I was blessed with an extraordinary gift! It came at a perfect time too. I was feeling a bit tied with not being “allowed” to stamp or use die cuts. Although our downloads where just taking flight I was missing the shapes, bits and pieces. Like all crafters we want options. We want variety, we want more pretty things… Ms. Debbie Cowsert blessed me and surprised me with my very own Scan N’ Cut! It changed the way I designed digitals and created projects. I was able to access shapes and make my own cuts digitally. The best part was I kept true to my agreement of not using a die cut machine or die. I started creating the files with a cut line because the SNC would read the file better and create a smooth cut! YES!!!!

  13. The new site is just incredible. I love the layouf and fonts. Its so easy to read. Loved the blog hop so much. Used to do loads of blog hops to collect the wee digital files. Scrapbooking wasn’t happening here at all. I used to print the files and would mix them with cross stitch. Then cd roms started to finally come over here. Always behind lol

    I can see how much work has been put into this new project from Joe. David when he gets up lol, Rose, Cathy, Gabby but most of all you. Not forgetting the patience of your wee ones. O happy birthday Tator Gator xxx

    God held your hand every step of the way and now you step together into an even bigger adventure. O wow you can say STAMP !!! 😂

    What you don’t know is how this family pulled me through one of the most horrendous times of my life too. Thanking God every day for you

    Emily was just one and Lewis two. My sons babies. Mummy left them in the bath and Emily drowned. Thankfully the paramedics got her heart going again. Levi was nine and already with me after his mum, still same dad as otger two, had a psycotic breakdown. He had been here six months

    After a year and a half. At exactly the time You had your shock I got mine. A social worker lied. Claimed we were under threat from my son.

    I battled fof another six months but the childfens reporter and doctor and school believed her

    Now after she has been sacked the lies are being found out

    Trouble is they put all the children into care with a view to be adopted

    Within the next few weeks Levi will go home to Mummy and Lewis and Emily to Dad. Whilst all this was happening Emmy and Lewis’ mum had another sibling AJ. i have never seen him. He went from hospital to care. He will be home soon too

    This is why I missed the start of the new journey. I was so ill. I had french flu for six weeks whilst battling at court and childrens hearings

    Someone asked a friend and me last week if we ever felt let down by God. She does not know my story. We both said No.

    We may not understand God’s plan when something throws a curved ball at us but faith keeps you going. Days when you have no money to feed the kids you know God will do something and he always does and from the most unthought of places

    I am so proud to know you all and so grateful to RG for sharing his journey with me

    Love and blessings xxxx

  14. Wow, RG. You knocked it out of the park with your blog hop and all the wonderful cards. Yours is like a bunch of friends just saying hello. So cute!

  16. Your creations are the best things going. Your card looks like a party is going on and I should be there. Will check out website tomorrow can’t wait to see what’s new and exciting.

  17. Congratulations RG! And, congrats to your Design Team! A job well done! On my first review for your page I said I knew you would rise up again and do great things. And, you have! You are AMAZING! Rise Up and continue to be the you, you want to be! Love and hugs to you, Gabby, and your team!

  18. Your Journey is just Rising and will be tenfold more than what you ever dreamed…May you continue to be Lead by the Lord in all you do..Peace..

    1. Ms Judy, thank you! You have been such an amazing part of this story, I still have the photograph you gifted me at CHA! THANK YOU for supporting and praying for us!

  19. Fantastic card! I love that background and of course your amazing little woodland critters are too stinkin’ cute! Thank you for allowing us to be a part of this amazing journey and to encourage everyone to let their creativity shine!

  20. Enjoyed the blog hop very much. The projects were inspiring and I love the critters. Thank you all for sharing your creativity

  21. Such an amazing adorably cute blog hop. I love all the critters and sayings. Fall is my favorite time of year.

  22. I did the entire blog hop but I couldn’t get it to take my comments on Rose and 1 other.

    Richard my heart is so full of joy for you and your family, knowing that this past year has definitely been a challenge but what a victory in Jesus as He has brought you all through it. I’m so excited for all the wonderful things you will share at Rise. God bless. Wish I could be there, but my thoughts will be with you and celebrating your new path. Love and hugs.

    1. LOVE YOU Ms PAT! I wish you could be here too, but I know your prayers will reach us anywhere we are! THANK YOU!!!!!!! LOVE YOU!!!!!

  23. What fun, I think that was my first ever blog hop, yet another new thing you have introduced me to. I love seeing all the different projects with the same starting point, really shows the versatility of the download. I also loved all the new ideas of how to get more out of it by adding other sets or just the different versions. I love the frame on this card and the use of the minis to create a family. What a great way to kick off your new website. Love it!

  24. whoah this weblog is wonderful i love reading your posts.
    Keep up the good work! You realize, a lot of individuals are searching around for this information, you
    can aid them greatly.

  25. This is a great tip particularly to those fresh to the blogosphere.
    Simple but very accurate info… Appreciate your sharing this one.
    A must read post!

  26. When I initially commented I appear to have clicked on the
    -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on whenever a comment is added I recieve
    four emails with the exact same comment. Is there
    an easy method you are able to remove me from that service?

  27. Thank you, I’ve recently been searching for info approximately this subject for a long time and yours is the greatest I’ve discovered till now.
    But, what in regards to the conclusion? Are you sure in regards to the source?

  28. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could
    connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having
    1 or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?

  29. I like the helpful info you supply on your articles.
    I will bookmark your blog and check once
    more right here regularly. I am fairly certain I will be informed
    a lot of new stuff proper here! Best of luck for the following!

  30. Thank you a bunch for sharing this with all folks you actually recognise what
    you are talking about! Bookmarked. Kindly additionally consult with
    my website =). We can have a link alternate agreement among us

  31. When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added”
    checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four e-mails
    with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that
    service? Many thanks!

  32. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of
    any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter
    updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some
    time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
    Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly
    enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

  33. An outstanding share! I have just forwarded
    this onto a coworker who has been conducting a little homework on this.
    And he actually ordered me dinner due to the fact that I stumbled upon it for him…
    lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thank YOU for the
    meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending the time to talk
    about this subject here on your website.

  34. An outstanding share! I have just forwarded this onto a coworker who had been conducting a little research on this.
    And he in fact bought me lunch simply because I discovered it for him…
    lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thank YOU for the meal!!
    But yeah, thanx for spending time to talk about this subject here on your website.

  35. Excellent post. I was checking constantly this blog and I am impressed!
    Extremely useful info specially the last part :
    ) I care for such info much. I was looking for this certain info for a
    very long time. Thank you and best of luck.

  36. Your style is so unique in comparison to other people I’ve read stuff from.
    Thank you for posting when you’ve got the opportunity,
    Guess I will just bookmark this blog.

  37. Hey there! I understand this is somewhat off-topic however I had to ask.
    Does building a well-established blog like yours take a large amount of work?
    I am completely new to writing a blog however I do write
    in my diary daily. I’d like to start a blog so I can share my experience and views online.
    Please let me know if you have any suggestions or
    tips for new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!

  38. Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing
    a few months of hard work due to no data backup.

    Do you have any solutions to protect against hackers?

  39. Wow that was strange. I just wrote an really long comment but after
    I clicked submit my comment didn’t appear. Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Anyway,
    just wanted to say excellent blog!

  40. Superb blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so
    many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed ..
    Any tips? Thanks!

  41. I do consider all the ideas you have presented to your post.
    They are very convincing and will definitely work.
    Still, the posts are too quick for novices. Could you please extend them
    a little from next time? Thank you for the post.

  42. I used to be suggested this website via my cousin. I’m not certain whether this post is written by way of him as no one
    else realize such targeted about my problem. You’re amazing!

  43. Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4
    year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to
    her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this
    is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

  44. Hello would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for
    something completely unique. P.S My apologies for getting off-topic
    but I had to ask!

  45. I do not know whether it’s just me or if everybody else experiencing problems
    with your site. It appears like some of the written text in your posts are running off
    the screen. Can someone else please comment and let me know if
    this is happening to them too? This may be a problem with my
    web browser because I’ve had this happen previously.
