My Pink Stamper/Creations With Christina CHALLENGE

Last night during Robyn's (My Pink Stamper) live chat, she issued a challenge from Christina (Creations With Christina). The challenge was to use a Christmas image from any Cricut cartridge in a nontraditional way. I used the present from Christmas Cheer to make a birthday card. The paper is Basic Grey and the ribbon is yarn that I got at Big Lots for $1!!

Calendar girls night out

I serve with the most amazing women at my church!! Every couple of months we have an "out of the box event" where we do something outside of work to have fun and build our team. This week it was at my house, and I designed calendars for us to make. I love how everyone took my basic outline and created their own personalized calendars! I used Cricut Plantin Schoolbook cart with Design Studio for the calendar names. I used lots of other Cricut carts for the embellishments! We had a blast working and crafting together!

I love pink and brown!

I have always loved the combination of pink and brown. I am so glad this combo is back in style - it's so easy to get coordinating paper. The brown cardstock is Papertrey Ink. The ribbon is also Papertrey Ink. The heart is from K&Co. Berry Sweet. I used the new Simply Sweet Cricut cartridge for the heart. I finished it off with Prima flowers. I even pulled out my Cuttlebug and embossed on the pink paper. It's kind of hard to see on the picture, but I used alabaster ink around the brown paper and for the sentiment.

I adore this new cartridge! I am making gifts for a get together next week using this cart. I'll post pics after the party.

Gift Cards

I made a set of monogrammed gift cards for my friends on the children's team at church. We have a blast serving God together. Each set has six cards. I boxed the cards in clear boxes that I got at Papertrey Ink. The paper is K & Co. Berry Sweet. I used the Cricut Hello Kitty cart for the cute flower monogram.

Colorado Trip

Wow - We just got back from our week in Boulder, Colorado. The day we left, it was 105 degrees in Norman. That evening in Boulder, it was 75 degrees! We had great weather the entire week with the high on the hottest day being 90.

The scenery is stunning and we had the best family time just relaxing and being together.

We also visited an Archiver's Scrapbooking store. It was amazing. It is probably a good thing there is not one very close to us here - I would be BROKE!

Shelby's AWESOME laptop design

Okay, this is totally amazing. All of the pieces are cut out by hand. There are over 420 pieces! Each flower has 6 petals and there is one circle underneath to hold the petals together. I think she did a fabulous job!

She also decorated her portable DVD player using the Cricut.

Cute, Cute, Cute stamps

My sweet sister stamped these images for me so that I could try her Copic markers. They are absolutely adorable. I am going to use them in cards sometime this week.

As for the Copic markers, they are really cool. I bought a few, and I am not totally convinced that I need more. I don't do a lot of stamping like this, but I do like the look! She is really into them and plans on adding more to her collection as she can.

Where have I been?

It seems like forever since I have had time to sit down and create! I made a few signs for our VBX, but I have not made a scrapbook page or card since the Swarm on May 16! It has been a very stressful and exciting time for me in my work life, and I feel I can barely get the necessities done every day. I WILL CREATE something fun this weekend. That is a promise!!

Albert, my helper

We really do have the sweetest dog ever. He likes to be wherever I am in the house. This is where he likes to be when I am crafting. It's funny though, he won't sit here when I am working. I guess my pounding the keys makes too much noise for him.

He is kinda in the way when he does this, but it is very sweet that he wants to be with me. After I get up for about the seventh time, he will move to the hall and lie across the door. I guess he figures that is the next best thing!
