Color Gelatos!!

Hi everyone!  I did have some time last night to play with the Design Memory Crafts Color Gelatos and Clear Stamp Set and it was super fun!!  I love these!
I took all 4 colors from the set and rubbed them in a rainbow-like pattern.  Then I used the brush it comes with and blended the colors.  I don't think you can see it very well, but they have a beautiful sparkle to them!  Then I played around with the stamp that came with them to try to use the Gelatos to stamp with.  I rubbed the darker pink right on the stamp and tried, but that didn't work very well.  Then I added some water to it and still no go.  While it was still wet I added more color but it was not working either.  So I cleaned the stamp and tried again by just added the color and it stamped pretty good!  I think it was just a little damp, but I'm not sure.  It's just something to play around with to see what works for you :)  Here's a close up of the stamp.  I also used the Gelato on the edge around the…

Mother's Day Blog Hop

Welcome to our Mother's Day blog hop. We are making some great projects that will hopefully inspire you to make some beautiful crafts for whomever you cherish on Mother's Day. If you came here from Meighen's blog then you are in the right place. If not start at the beginning at Jamie's blog for all the wonderful projects lined up for you today. 

I made a box, card and tag for you all from the Cricut Wrap It Up Cartridge.  Here are the details:
Card cut at 5 inches; flower on top cut at 2 inchesBox cut at 9 1/2 inchesTag cut at 4 inchesMy Pink Stamper Happiest Moments stamp on tagSticklesRibbonMy intention was to use the Happy Mother's Day from this button on the cartridge for the top of the card.  Well, it needed to be about 2 inches for this size card and it just would not cut out!!  I think it would be really cute and will have to try it with a bigger card cut before Mother's day.  I tend to go for easy projects here :)

I hope you like what I made, even thou…

Where to get treat bags and Another layout

Hi everyone!!  I've had several questions about the M&M bags.  I actually went in with a few people on the Cricut Messageboard but I think they were bought at  You can search for 1 x 8 inch bags to find them faster, but they have a ton of fun things there.  I just checked the other day and saw some fun clear boxes I want to get :)

Here's one more layout I made this week.  All the cuts were from Simply Charmed but I'm not sure of the sizes right now.  The paper was from DCWV and I used stickles, or course and pop dots!  There's a bit of shine due to the foil on the paper.

I've been invited to join a Mother's Day Blog Hop tomorrow so please check back and join in the fun!! I should have some fun blog hop candy too :)

Birthday Layout

Hi everyone!

Here's a quick girlie birthday layout that I made this week.  I've always been an 8 1/2 x 11 inch scrapbooker but have decided that I need to be 12 x 12 so that's what I've been making lately.  But they are definitely harder to photograph!

Here are the details: Celebrate with a Flourish cartridge:  present & balloon 4 inches; Happy Birthday -- can't remember :)DCWV stack patterned paperSticklesAmerican Crafts ribbonSigno White penI did hand 'stitching around the whole page and the picture mat.  This was fun to make!

My Pink Stamper Design Team Day

Hi everyone!!  Today is My Pink Stamper Day--one of my favorite days :)  I truly love all her stamps and hope that everyone else does too!

Today theme is favors of any kind!  I choose to make some M & M sticks for Easter since it's this Sunday. 

Here are the details:

So I've hit over 800 followers--wow!  I have a small blog prize today--I've had 2 others in the last we…

Snail Mail!

Hi everyone!  Today I have a card from Nate's ABCs.  I won this from Scrapbook Pal for putting their blinkie on my sidebar.  I got to pick my own cartridge!  I've ordered from them before too and they have super fast, free shipping for over $25!  I think they have some pretty good prices too. 

This is such a fun cartridge!  And you don't have to use it just for boys--I turned my snail pink :)

Here are the details:

Make sure to check out each DT member's blog for some awesome inspiration! There will be PRIZES along the way at some of our DT members' blogs, AND there will be a Grand Prize up for grabs at FCCB for one participant that submits a "Spring Fling" project at FCCB!   How fun is that?

I have 2 projects for you tonight and a giveway at the end.  1st up is a birthday card.  I have really been wanting to use this card base from Birthday Bash for a while! BTW the eyes and lips cut for this were tiny!  I had to use a marker for the eyes at this size :)

Disney Scrapbook Page

Hi everyone!  I pulled out my pictures for some scrapping this past weekend.  I so need to do this more often so you should be seeing some more pages around here :)

I am years behind but really want to work on our Disney book from September.  This is a page I started a while ago and just finished on Monday. 

Here are the details on this really easy page:
Title cut from Mickey Font cartridge at 1 inchSword cut from Happily Ever After at 5 inchesShiny paper is from Theresa CollinsHelmar Scrap DotsI think I did not finish the page because I needed a sword and just had to buy Happily Ever After -- LOL! And I used the Scrap Dots to pop up the sword on the page.  I actually have letters cut for another Disney page so I'll see if I can get that one made this week too.

Don't foret that we have a Pinka-licious blog hop Friday night!!  I'm going to have a giveaway too :)

April Showers at Fantabulous Cricut

Hi everone!  This week's challenge theme at Fantabulous Cricut is April Showers.  You need to use an umbrella or hat on your project.  The April Shower's cartridge has a lot of really cute cuts on it and includes an umbrella.  I love this cartridge because things are so easy to put together!

Here are the details: Umbrella from April Showers cut at Stamp from My Pink Stamper Fabulous Phrases set DCWV the Celebration Stack patterned paperHelmar Scrap DotsHelmar 450 Quick Dry AdhesiveEK Success edge punchAmerican Crafts ribbonGlam Pink SticklesI have recently discovered the Helmar adhesives and love them!  The Scrap Dots is so fun to work with, and the Quick Dry Adhesive is liquid but does not leave any bumps.  I used the Scrap Dots to pop up the umbrella.

Just Because

Hi everyone!  I made this card thinking I was going to enter it in a challenge.  But I forgot that it's a new challenge and this card does not fit it! 

I actually made this card with cuts I found in a bucket on my desk.  So I have no idea what the size of the cuts are.  I do know the ladybug is from Doodlecharms since it's one of my favorite cuts!!

The stamp is from My Pink Stamper Fabulous Phrases set--one of my favorites right now :)  I added green iRock gems to the middles of the flowers and used Cotton Candy Stickles for the edges.  And that is a Martha Stewart Around the Page punch set that I cut out the other day too.

I did keep creating after this one, but some is for DT work so will have to wait :)

Happy Saturday!

Hi everyone!  I'm so glad it's Saturday :)  I don't have a project right now for you, but hope to have something for you on Sunday.  I'm hoping to do a lot of creating today and squeeze in a movie with the family!

Just wanted to let you know about some fun things coming up on my blog.

This Friday, April 8th is the My Pink Stamper Pinka-licous blog hop.  I will have a giveaway for that that one, plus you'll get to see some awesome projects :)

On Monday, April 11th we have the Fantabulous Cricut Spring Fling Crawl.  There will be prizes along the way and you'll be able to participate to win too!

The week of April 25 is going to be fun!  I don't know if I can mention it, but I got a fun email yesterday and will have something new this week -- make sure to tune in :)

Have a great day!!
