My Pink Stamper March Design Team Day

Hello everyone!  I just love My Pink Stamper Post days--of course, I pretty much post with My Pink Stamper stamps all the time anyhow--LOL!

Today's theme is Spring and we were to use the colors yellow, blue and green.  And apparently, we were supposed to use a buttlerfly somewhere on our project too.  But, I was so focused on the colors, which I had trouble with, that I totally missed the butterfly!  I did try to find a ready made one to add last night, but I only found pink, since that's what I use a lot :)

Oh well, at least I got the colors right!

Here are the details:
  • My Pink Stamper Buggy Punnies
  • Frog cut at 2 1/2 inches from Once Upon a Princess
  • Pattern Paper from DCWV The Green Stack
  • Green Ribbon
  • Action Wobble 
  • Green Stickles
  • Signo White Pen
  • Heat set gems
Next time, I will pay more attention to the last line of the assignment :)  Make sure to go back to My Pink Stamper to see the entire Design Team's projects and to add your own too!

Have a fabulous day!

My Pink Stamper

Hello everyone!  Today, I am posting over on Robyn, My Pink Stamper's blog.  Very Exciting!!  I am so blessed to be on her design team and work with her and all the amazing ladies :)

I made some carrot boxes filled with mini jelly beans for today.  Here's a picture.  Make sure to leave a comment on Robyn's blog for your chance to win a Yummy-licious set of your own.  In fact, all the guest designers have a set to give away this week, so make sure you go back through all of them to leave a comment and see the amazing creations they posted!

The boxes came from Teresa Collins Bunnies and Chicks Cricut Craftroom cartridge.  They were cut at 7 and 4 1/2 inches.  I like the smaller ones better!

Have a fabulous day!!

You Make Me Hoppy!

Hi!  Here's the bunny card I made this weekend.  I was looking through My Pink Stamper stamps and just really wanted to use this punny saying :)

Here are the details:
  • My Pink Stamper Even More Punnylicious
  • Bunny cut at 4 inches from Create A Critter
  • Doodlebug Design Hello Spring 6x6 paper pack
  • Signo White pen
  • Cotton Candy Stickles
  • Purple twine
Looking at the card today, I think I should have used a Cuttlebug folder on the pink background.  I'll just have to remember that for next time!

Have a great day!

But I do have a cut little bunny card I hope to post tomorrow, I just didn't get a picture made when I got home last night.

Lots of fun things going on so stay tuned!!

St. Patrick's Day

Hello!  Today I thought I would show you the Make n Take we made at the Atlanta Circle Crop.  Well, we started it there, but we had tornado warnings and so we all left a bit earlier than expected.  I finally finished putting this together over the weekend.  I had all the pieces assembled, I just added stickles, heat set gems and then put it all together.

Shannon, from Provo Craft brought everything all cut out for us.  The cuts are from the Cricut Craftroom St. Patrick's Day cuts.  The sticks are in a salt container--such a great idea!

I figured I should finish it up since it's St. Patrick's Day on Saturday :)

See you tomorrow with the winner my giveaway from Friday!

Hello!  Just a quick post to show you my calling card from the Circle crop I went to over the weekend.  A calling card is 3x3 inches you trade with everyone attending.  You put your name and whatever information you want to share on the back.

The theme for the weekend was St. Patrick's Day and most everyone made their cards to fit the theme.  I did not :)  I wanted it to be more about me than the theme so I made mine pink, of course!

I used Art Philosophy for the base cut and used the Swiss Dot Cuttlebug on it.  The butterfly is from Paper Trimmings and cut at 2 1/2 inches.  I stickled it, of course!  And the sentiment is from My Pink Stamper Buggy Punnies.  Finished it off with ribbon and pop dots for the butterfly.

Have a great week everyone!!  Don't forget that this Friday is a My Pink Stamper Pinkalicious Blog Hop :)

Flower Box from TBBM2

Hi everyone!

It's been a while since I posted--just normal, but crazy days at my house!  I went to a Circle Crop this weekend and did make a few things.  I haven't had a lot of mojo and yesterday was no exception.

But, I did break out my new Tags, Bags, Boxes and More 2 cartridge to play with.  I learned a few things that I thought I would share with you all here.

I first tried cutting out one of the take out boxes on some pretty green patterned paper.  Well, there were no score lines!  Then I looked at the booklet a little closer and saw that you need to hit the shift function to get the score lines.  So I tried it again on the same paper, but couldn't see the lines to fold and they were not deep enough just to fold either--a bit frustrating!  Someone mentioned that others had this problem of not seeing the lines and to try putting the paper pattern side down.  So I tried that, but with different paper and a box with only 4 score lines.  But my paper was glittery and not sticking so I had to tape it to the mat.

Here are the steps I used:
  1. Put scoring blade in machine; pick the box you want and hit shift and add this to the mat.
  2. Score paper, face side down if patterned.  
  3. Do NOT unload paper.
  4. Add the box cut to the mat after removing score lines.
  5. Change back to cutting blade and cut
I used my Gypsy to do all of this.  So when it was done scoring (I actually scored 2 times to be sure), I just hit return to design instead of unload.  Then I took off the scoring marks, added the box cut (to the same spot) and then hit the cut button.  It moved my blade to the spot it started cutting.

Supplies used:
  • Cardstock from Uptown Girl Stack
  • Box is cut at 9 inches
  • My Pink Stamper Simply Sweet Occasions Stamp Set
  • Charcoal Twine from The Twinery
  • pink pen

Some of the boxes require multiple cuts/scores and you need to glue them together to assemble the box.  but I wanted to try something easy first!

Shannon from Provo Craft was there on Saturday and heard me talking about not seeing the score marks on the pattern paper. She asked if she could take that sheet back with her to show them at Provo Craft.  So, hopefully this might be a fix they could make since I am sure I am not the only one who would love to make boxes with pretty, sturdy paper!

It's a fun cartridge and I will try again!!
