Hi everyone!!  Today is a My Pink Stamper Post day--Woo Hoo!  Here's one of my projects you might see over on My Pink Stamper.  I'll post them all throughout the week with the details :)

The details:

I decided to make some cute little treat bags for the 4th of July.  I thought they would be fun filled with popcorn or I might put some small trinkets in them for my daughter and friends.  There are lots of options.

Father's Day Cards

Hi everyone!  I'm a bit late with this post since Father's Day is just about over :)  But here are two cards I made--one on Saturday and one Sunday (yes, on Father's Day).  The second one took me 15 minutes and I actually like it!


  • Cricut Handy Man Cartridge cut at 3 inches
  • My Pink Stamper Happiest Moments
  • DCWV The Guy Stack
  • Silver paper
  • pop dots
This one was pretty easy since my Father-in-Law is a handy man.  I loved the silver paper for the end of it!


  • Cricut Father's Day Cartridge cut at 3 inches
  • DCWV The Guy Stack
  • Twisted Lime Trendy Twine
  • pop dots
This one was for my dad.  I really didn't think he cared about cards I made but when I gave it to him, he said he likes my hand made ones--Aww!

Well, have a great week--I'll be busy with some more DT projects that I can't show you yet :) but I might have another post or two before the big My Pink Stamper Blog Hop on Friday!!

Quick Card and Update

Hello everyone!  I know I haven't blogged in forever--been a bit busy lately and just haven't had a lot of creative in me.  I am working on some magazine calls and DT projects that I just can't show you yet.  But here is a card I made a while ago and hadn't posted.  It's not one of my better creations :)

You may notice that I now have a watermark--I learned the hard way last week that this is important :)  I'm still playing around with the software and trying to find what I like for the mark and not be too overpowering.

Some details:

There's lots of things going on in the next few weeks:
  1. New My Pink Stamper Release on June 22
  2. My Pink Stamper Monthly Post Day on June 25
  3. My 1st Trendy Twine DT Group Post on July 2
  4. I'm participating in PinkE's 4th of July Blog Hop on July 3
  5. My 1st individual post day for the Trendy Twine DT on July 4
Whew--I think I need to get busy to make sure I have some awesome things to show you all!!  

Oh and if you have any old links to my blog or my button, be sure to update it with the new URL or button.  My awesome Blog Designer Pamela from The Posh Box fixed my blog button so that it goes to the new URL and she also update my header.  If you are in the market for a blog makeover, she is fabulous!

Have a great day!!

Exciting News!

Hi everyone!  Today, I have some exciting news to share that I have been bursting to tell everyone -- I am now on the Twine it Up! with Trendy Twine Design Team!!  Woo Hoo!!  I just love me some twine so I was very excited to get this great news in a email a few weeks ago.  It's been killing me to keep it a secret--LOL!

Editing on Monday am:  I forgot that I am supposed to tell you a bit about myself--LOL!    I am a married, full-time working mom of 2 teenagers (it pains me to say that!).  My son is 15 and just got his learners permit and my daughter just turned 13.  We have one dog, Charlie (girl) who is just adorable which gets her out of trouble a lot :)  I started scrapbooking when my son was one and then started card making soon after when friends talked me into selling Stampin' Up!  Being a demonstrator did not last too long since I was not good at being pushy.  My blog began 2 1/2 years ago and I have been on the My Pink Stamper DT for about a 1 1/2 years.  I was also on the Fantabulous Cricut Team for a a few terms too.  I am beyond thrilled to be this amazing Trendy Twine Team!!  Lesley is just fabulous and I can't wait to get started!!

Here's a project that I sent in to try out.  I used the Spring Cottage Cartridge to make the basket and berries.

The details:
I had to get this Cricut Cartridge just because of the basket and berries--LOL!  And this project just needed twine to go on it too :)   I glued the Krazy for Kraft Twine around the basket and handles. The berries hold one or two pieces of candy and then you close it with the twine.  I used the white pen to do some faux stitching on the berry leaves.

Trendy Twine is a three-color twist that comes in traditional colors mixed with whit as well as custom colors  mixed with other colors--so much fun!  Make sure to head over to Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine so you can meet all the new designers.  You can also see all the colors available now, and there are more to come this year -- Yay!  Plus, if you leave a comment on all the blogs today, you can win a spool of Trendy Twine of your own choice!  Just be sure to leave one comment on all the blogs and the Trendy Twine Blog as well.  And if you want to try out some Trendy Twine, the Original Mini Pack is on sale :)

Have a fantastic day everyone!!
