My Niece Julia's Bday Card

Hi Everyone!! My niece Julia had a birthday earlier this month and I just got a chance to bring this to her today, but before I did I took a quick picture for you!! She is 12 years old. It's hard to believe how fast the time flies. I remember being there when she was born!! I used the Create A Critter Cartridge and welded to scalloped circles together to make the card on my gypsy. I am sorry, but I forgot where the scalloped circles were from. I think it was Forever Young, but I forgot to write that down. I used the My Pink Stamper Sweetest Cupcakes for the sentiment. If you haven't taken a peek at the sentiments on that set, you must take a peek!! They are sooooo sweet!! :0) I hope everyone is having a terrific Saturday!!! XOXO

My Pink Stamper Design Team Post

Hi Everyone! This month we got to create anything we wanted with the new stamp set release. My sister recently celebrated her birthday so I thought it would be fun to make her a piece of cake all decorated up. I used the My Pink Stamper Sweet Goodness Stamp(LOVE this set BTW!!) set along with Tags, Bags, Boxes and More(box cut at 9 inches, pg.126) and the Forever Young Cartridge(flower cut at 3 and 3 1/2 inches and the tag was cut at 1 1/2 inches). The damask paper that I used for the accordion fan folds on top was Die Cuts With A View. I added some fun rhinestones and twine to give this a decorative touch. To see a video of how I made this, please click on the link below:

Be sure to check out all the other super cute design team projects!!! They will all be listed on My Pink Stamper's website. :0)

My Pink Stamper Blog Hop!!

Hi Everyone!!

Thank you for so much for hopping along!!! If you came to my blog first, please click on this link to start at the beginning. We are asked to do a little introduction and make a project that represents our own personal style. I think my personal style is bright, fun, and cutesy. I don't know why it is that I am so drawn to bright colors, but I am. They just make me happy! :0)

A little about me. :0) I live in Gig Harbor, WA and have 4 children ages 20, 19 and two at 18. I just turned 40 this July and can hardly believe it!! I am married to a wonderful man who supports my Cricut habit. He’s my biggest cheerleader!!

A little known fact about me is that when I got my Cricut 3 plus years ago (I say “plus” because I’m 40 remember…my memory is going!! LOL) my Cricut sat on the shelf for an entire year!!! I know GASP!! Can you believe it?!! I can hardly utter those words now, but thankfully I am writing them!! LOL I am definitely a visual learner so I searched the internet and who did I find?? Robyn, My Pink Stamper. She has been such an inspiration to me and I am so excited to be on her design team!!! Together with Maria (head designer for My Pink Stamper) they are a dynamic duo!! :0)

I made a house out of the Sweet Tooth Cricut Cartridge and My Pink Stamper Yummy-Licious Stamp Set. The house was cut at 9.5 inches and added some buttons, self adhesive ribbon and a flower to give this home a special touch. To see a video of how I made this box, please click on the link below:

Halloween House and Cupcake Holder

Hi Everyone! My Pink Stamper just released 7 new stamp sets this past Friday. To get a peek at them all, please click here. I just purchased the new Sweet Tooth Boxes just to use with her new stamp sets. Here's a picture of a Halloween House that I made. I cut it out at 10 inches. I love the cute Spook-alicious Stamp Set along with the darling little spider that she added to this set. Can you see the little spiders that are stamped onto the flower?? So cute!!!

Here's a picture of the same stamp set Spook-alicious but using the Happy Halloween stamp. I am so pleased with how this turned out. :0)

This is also cut from the Sweet Tooth Boxes Cricut Cartridge cut at 9.5 inches. I also used Wrap It Up for the tag cut at 1.25 inches. I used the Sweet Goodness My Pink Stamper Stamp Set. What a cute idea that you can cut this big enough to fit an actual cupcake and then stamp a sweet message on the outside! :0)

I have quite a few more posting this week, so be sure to check back!! Thank you!!
