My Favorite Peep-My Pink Stamper November Design Team Post

Hi everyone!  Are you getting ready for a FABULOUS Thanksgiving?  I'm not sure about you, but I have a lot to be thankful for!  Even when things are down, I know I have a lot to be thankful for.  I hope you find something to be thankful for this season!  I will be spending Thursday with my family.  We actually will be feasting twice...once with my in-laws and once with my family.

Today is the day where all of the My Pink Stamper design team members post a project on their blog.  This month, we are featuring unique fold cards.  I decided to do another Z-Fold card (also known as a zig zag fold).  These are fun and easy to make.  See the video below for complete instructions.

I used the My Pink Stamper That's Punny-licious stamp set to create my card.  I figured this little chick (from Create A Critter) was the perfect cut to go along with the sentiment "You're my favorite peep!" Can't you imagine this at Easter with a little bunny cut (to look like those famous marshmallow treats) too?    That's Punny-licious is part of the newest release of stamps from My Pink Stamper.

The Christmas Card that stands up!  I created this using the Card And Photo Easel Die, which also includes the holly leaf shapes.  

This desk calendar was also created using the  Card And Photo Easel Die.

Don't you just love this Bakery Box Die?  The best part is that the box is pre-scored...making it super easy to fold and be done with it!  The label shape used to cut the window is also included with this die.

This project, using the Bakery Box Die, uses the other label shape included with the set to cut the window.  I also used the Oh, Happy Day alphabet to spell out the word LOVE.  (The heart is from the It Kits Release.)

Another  Bakery Box Die project, this time using the Manhattan Alphabet die.  These mini letters are FABULOUS!

Guilt free peppermints?  I think so!  These peppermints were created using the  Rosettes Die  set.  Oh my goodness!  The Rosettes Die  makes these a SNAP!

This canvas wall hanging also uses theRosettes Die set.  I love how this set has a scalloped edge rosette and a straight edge rosette.  Simply cut and trim to create various sizes!

Birthday Boy Scrapbook Page-My Pink Stamper Pinkalicious Blog Hop November

Hi everyone!  Are you ready for a night of some fabulous scrapbook inspiration?  Tonight is the My Pink Stamper Pink-alicious blog hop for November.  And tonight we are featuring scrapbook pages using the newest My Pink Stamper stamps!

If you are coming to me from Julie, you are hopping along just fine.  If you just happened upon this post, be sure you head over to My Pink Stamper's site to start from the very beginning.  You wouldn't want to miss an ounce of the fabulous inspiration.  I have posted the entire blog hop order below.

Don't forget!  Once you've seen everyone's projects, head back over to My Pink Stamper's site to play along in the challenge.  There will be tons more inspiration there as people add their projects for you to see as well!

My project features the Biggie Family Sentiments set from My Pink Stamper Stamps.  There are tons of fabulous stamps that you can combine to make your very own sentiments.  I used the stamps to create a saying on the banners.   The banners and all of the Cricut cuts on this project are from the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.

This page is an 8x8 scrapbook page, as I find these much more manageable for me!  Scrapbooking always puts me a little out of my comfort zone....not sure why.  The same concepts apply to scrapbook pages as to cards.

Sorry!  I don't have a video this time!  Life has been a little hectic this week and I just didn't have the time to film!  

But, here are the quick details for you-
Stamps-My Pink Stamper Biggie Family Sentiments Stamp Set
Cartridge-Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge
Paper-Echo Park Dots and Stripes Metropolitan Collection, My Mind's Eye Lime Twist Fly a Kite 6x6 pad
Ink-Whisper White from Stampin Up

Alrighty!  Now that you've seen my project, hop on over to June where you will find more inspiration along the trail!

Hope you have a fabulous weekend!

It Kits Hot Cocoa Pocket Featuring Lifestyle Crafts New It Kits + A Giveaway

Hello everyone!  I hope you are having a fabulous day!  I have created a fun and easy project for you today using the new Lifestyle Crafts It Kits.  These fabulous little die sets are a lot of fun to create with.  And they come with digital files for cutting with your digital cutting machine!

For this Hot Cocoa holder, I used a digital shape and changed the size to accommodate my packet of hot cocoa.  I used my Silhouette to cut it at 5.25 x 9.6 inches.  The scalloped edge is also from one of the It Kits, as well as the heart in the center of the snowflake.

I have a video below showing the entire process for making this holder.  I think there are so many possibilities for this shape.  Here are just some of the ideas I have come up with-
*Gift Card Holder
*Money Holder
*Card Holder/Envelope
*Gift Tag
*Slide in a mini set of stamps to give to a crafty friend

So tell me what you would slide inside this fun pocket!  Remember....you can change the size.  The digital file allows you endless possibilities.  And the traditional die allows you to cut it from paper, felt and more!  With Christmas just around the corner, I don't know how you'll live without these dies!

Remember, use the promo code GLITTER when checking out at Lifestyle Crafts and you'll save 20% off your order!
