Pink by Design - Stamp of the Month- DT Day!

Happy Friday!! It's a very happy Friday for me!! For one, it's my birthday :) and two.. I'm in DISNEYLAND!! Whoo hoo!! So it's design team day over at Pink Cricut and I decided to make a post it note holder for you all!!

This is an acrylic 4x6 picture frame that I bought for $1 from Walmart. I laid it down and turned it into a post it note holder!! The stamp reads "Cinderella is proof that a New Pair of Shoes can change your life" and of course I choose to use this stamp because I'm in Disneyland! :) The black shoe and diamonds on the lighter pink paper are also from Designer Shoes stamp of the month stamp set. I used my silver glitter pen and added glitter to the shoe.

And here is a close up...

Just another Gray Hare...

LOVE Pink by Design stamps! For this project I used two PBD stamps. The first stamp I used says "Don't worry, it's just another gray Hare". I love that saying!! That stamp is from the Hoppy Easter stamp set. The second stamp that I used is actually a background stamp. The green cardstock was stamped in light blue memento ink with PBD Crazy Daisy background stamp.
Now for the cricut details.. The box and the green cardstock is cut from Spring Holiday Cards. The bunny is cut from Live Simply cricut lite cart (love it!!)

First project is of course.. Skittle Sticks :) The green background is cut from Gypsy Wanderings. The bunnies are cut from Doodlecharms. I used blackout and shadow and then stamped the face with Peachy Keen - Bright Eyed and Bushy Tailed stamps.

Second project is alittle easter type basket that I made using my Martha Stewart score board. I then decorated by adding a white picket fence and grass cut from Paper Doll Dress Up. The Bunny is from create a critter and of course had to use the same peachy keen face on this guy to match the skittle sticks :) There are 10 hershey chocolate eggs inside the basket but alot more can fit in there with a peep or chocolate bunny..

Pink by Design - Stamp of the Month (Jan + Feb) DT Projects!

Yay! It's finally Design Team day over at Pink Cricut for Stamp of the Month! :) I am very excited to share these two projects with you!!

First project is for January's Stamp of the Month set- Fly Away with Me. I decided to use the butterflies! I stamped them with black Memento Ink and then colored them with copics. The blue background image is cut from Gypsy Wanderings. I then stamped another butterfly in a very light blue color then stamped the words "Spread Your Wings" over the top in brown. The words are also from the stamp set. I cut them out with spellbinders and added alittle brown metallic ribbon! :)

And here is my project for February's stamp of the month- Designer Shoes. I cut this box from Spring Holiday Cards. I love this cartridge!! I mainly bought it for these boxes, they are perfect to put little gifts or gift cards in! I tiled the shoe stamp for the background and then cut out the leopard shoes from Paisley. The tag was cut from Gypsy Wanderings and the stamp "No matter what you've had for lunch, Shoes always fit" is also from that same stamp set. I love this sentiment!!

Thank you so much for checking out my projects used Pink Cricut's stamp of the month sets! Make sure to check out the other Stamp of the Month designer Raven!

Share the Love - Fantabulous Cricut Crawl

Welcome to the Share the Love - Fantabulous Cricut Crawl- our version of a blog hop! If you have arrived from Brenda's blog then your in the right spot. If you would like to start at the begining of the crawl click here.

The challenge for this crawl was to incorporate the word "Love". It could either be stamped or cut out on the cricut. I decided to make a "Love" Banner. The font and banner is cut from Birthday Bash. The hearts that the letters are in and the heart swirls on the ends are cut from Sweethearts cartridge. I strung the banner up using my Crinkle Ribbon which I got from My Craft Spot. I also used the new Pink by Design background stamps! I used Crazy Daisy. I stamped it in light pink on the light pink so it looks like a watermark almost..

Here is a close up of the banner.. you can see the dots from the background stamp. The black is a glittery black cardstock that I purchased from Joanns.

Your next stop on the "Share the Love" Fantabulous Cricut Crawl is Cathy!

Thanks for visiting my blog on this blog hop! Make sure to come back on Saturday because I will be in a Vintage Valentine hop!
