My Pink Stamper Color Challenge

Well MPS had a Color Challenge to use pink, green, orange and brown in a project so here's what I came up with :) I pretty much made the same card as I made for my friend's birthday, but changed the saying and added the pink so it would work for the challenge. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out :)

  • Create-A-Critter cartridge
  • Just Because Cards cartridge
  • DCWV and other assorted cardstock and patterned paper
  • White ribbon
  • Dimensional adhesive

My Pink Stamper Design Team Submission Rejects :)

Well I decided to make a submission for the My Pink Stamper Design Team and I can't post my actual submission until after Robyn announces her picks. So here are a couple of the cards I made that didn't make the cut :) Hope you like them!

  • Preserves Cricut cartridge  
  • Fiskars border punch
  • Value Pack Cardstock
  • Sheer Creations ribbon
  • Assorted Scraps (sorry I have no idea where I got the patterned paper)
  • Studio G "the perfect pear" clear stamp


  • Create-A-Critter Cricut cartridge
  • DCWV "the Sweet stack" cardstock
  • Spool 'o Ribbon white
I printed out the saying on some white cardstock and then used the Center Point function on my Cricut Expression to cut the shape around it.


  • Create-A-Critter Cricut cartridge
  • Autumn Leaves "Blink Petals"
  • Value Pack cardstock
  • Fiskars scalloped circle punch
  • Stampedous "Changito the Monkey" stamp set

Baby Shower Invitations

Here are some of the invitations I am helping my friend Ashley make for her friends baby shower. Her theme is monkeys so of course I couldn't wait to use my new Create-A-Critter cartridge (actually I bought specifically for this project, shhh don't tell my DH, lol). This cart has soooo many cute little animals on it! It is soooo my fav right now! And we made so he can slide on the ribbon by mounting him on one of the foundation tags from Mini Monograms. And then we also made thank you cards to go with the theme. So I thought the banana would be perfect with the "thanks a bunch" stamp! So happy with how they all turned out. Hope Ashley's friend likes them. We did 70 invitations and 50 Thanks You cards! Both the banana and the bubble are from the Create-A-Critter cart. Have I mentioned how much I LOVE this cartridge!!

Graduation Card

Here is a card I made for my friend Crystal. I used my Cricut with the Storybook cartridge for the frame and the Teardrop cartridge for the phrase. I'm really happy with how it turned out. And I made the little gift card holder inside by wrapping the gift card in black cardstock and a circle punch to make the notch so you can pull it out easier :)
And then decorated it with different strips of paper that coordinated with the front of the card!
