My Pink Stamper Post Day!

Hi everyone!  It a My Pink Stamper post day!! 

For today's post, we are showing you some of Robyn's newest sets, and a different fold card.  Now, I have not done these before, but I decided to use the Easel card.  This is a pretty easy one to do! 

My set that I used is My Pink Stamper From the Heart set.  The card, when folded is 4 1/4 square.  I'm still not sure that I cut and scored it right--when I attached the top part, the bottom was hanging over.  So I just cut it to even out with the top :)

Here are the items used to make it:
  • My Pink Stamper From the Heart set (sentiment and hearts)
  • Large heart from Martha Stewart Seasonal Cake Art cut at 3 1/2 inches; small hearts are leftover cuts that were on my desk :)
  • Maraschino Twine from The Twinery
  • Martha Stewart edge punch
  • Christmas Red Stickles
Make sure to visit My Pink Stamper to see all the Design team's creative cards--I can't wait to see them too!!

Klutz Stamp Art Review and Giveaway!

Hi everyone!  Today I have a Klutz Stamp Art review for you.  I was sent a copy of this Activity Book to review and give my viewers a chance to win a copy!  This is the perfect gift for kids ages 8 and up.  I was especially happy to get this to review since I have a 12 year old daughter to help!

Arts, Crafts & Laughs. The Perfect Holiday Gift for Any Child!”

This is the description from the company:  Stamp Art makes stamping simpler -- and more creative -- than ever. Stick the included shapes on the see-through acrylic block to create your own one-of-a-kind stamp design. Full of inspirational artwork and instruction, this stamp-right-in-it book shows how to create animals, flowers, houses, aliens... anything you can dream up.

My daughter played a bit with this book this past week.  She has this whole week off, so I'm hoping she'll create some more fun for me to post later this week :)  It comes with 3 double-sided colored pencils and a small black ink pad.  The stamps were a little tough to get off the backing at 1st, but my daughter did it all herself and did not want me to help.  They stick back on and come off much easier now.  It's a really fun, creative activity!

I just love the wild haired face she made at the top.  And the one on the right started out as a chicken but turned into a purple, chicken moose--LOL!  That is the great thing about these shapes, your child's imagination can soar!!  She wasn't going to finish since it turned out different, but I encouraged her to and we had the best time giggling about it :)

She stamped the big flower at the bottom, the rest were already on the page.  The book aslo suggests different things you can make such as bookmarks, cards, and ornaments.  I tried to stamp one thing, but my daughter's were just so much better! 

Here are the Klutz links so you can see more information on how to order

I will draw Two (2) winners -- each winner will receive one copy of Stamp Art ERV $21.99.  Please leave your name and a way for me to contact you and I will draw the winners on Monday, November 28!

My Pinkalicious Blog Hop!!

Hi everyone!  It's the My Pinkalicious Bog Hop night!!  If you have just come from Shelley, you are on the right track.  But if you just happened upon my blog, be sure to start at My Pink Stamper to see all the fun projects the design team has made.

Today's hop challenge is to make a scrapbook page or mini album. I decided to go with a mini album! And the design team is showing stamps from Robyn's latest release.  My set today is the fabulous From the Heart set :)

I used Elegant Edges to make the pages, all cut at 6 inches square.  Then I used my new Ribbons and Rosettes to decorate the front along with twine and My Pink Stamper From the Heart Set!  The Rosette is cut at 1 1/2 inches, 4 times and glued together; twine is Marachino Twine from the Twinery.  I only finished the 1st page of the album, but there are 6 pages total.  To assemble the album, I used my hot glue gun the stick together and put in my Your Story Mini to make sure it bound together tightly.

Make sure to go back to Robyn's blog when you are finished and so you can see where to purchase her awesome newest (and other) sets!!!

Your next stop on the hop is Edna (Create With Expression)!  Have fun and I hope to see your project this weekend!!!

I do have a small giveaway for you -- ribbon and a 6x6 scrapbook stack.   Just leave one comment and I will draw a winner on Wednesday!!

Zombie and Vampire

Hello everyone!  It's been such a busy week that I have not had time to play with my Cricut!  And I got three new cartridges in the mail this week :)  But I will make time this weekend and hopefully make some scrapbook pages since I just got the Scrap'n Easle yesterday too.  I can't wait to use it!!

I was tired last night so I took the laptop to my bedroom and put together a quick digital page while trying to keep my feet warm :)

I used the free Scrappy Hollow embellishments and a dotty background that came with the software from My Memories.  Don't forget that you can use the coupon code I have in my side bar to buy this software for yourself and save $10!

I added the border on the picture and the word art, but everything else was from Spooky Town!  This is how my kids dressed for Halloween this year.  I miss the cute days when they were princes and princesses!!  But my son is a ham, and I could only get his picture with him acting like a Zombie too.

Have a great day!!  Oh, and there is one more winner that I have not heard from on my 5 days of giveaways.  It's Kimberli, who won the Martha Stewart Score Board.  Please contact me soon so I can get it out to you!
