My Pink Designer's Tuesday

It's Tuesday again and it is Pam and I's turn to share a project for the My Pink Stamper Design Team. Spring treats was the theme and this is what I came up with. I used the "sweet treats" Cricut cartridge for the holder, which was a cupcake holder. I used the "fit to page" turn it cut at 11 inches. The butterflies are Stampin' Up and the paper is DCWV. I also used My Pink stamper Stamps "celebrate today" simply sweet occasions, for the little hanging mini tag.
Have a wonderful day!

"Softball" layout

My oldest daughter is playing softball this year. It's her first time playing. She had her first game on the 19th and these are some pictures I had taken. I used the "sports mania" Cricut cartridge for the word softball and for the ball. The star border is a Martha Stewart punch. Pattern paper and cardstock is from the 2008 "summer stack" by DCWV and the kraft cardstock is Stampin' Up. I am sure I will do a few more softball layouts:-) Have a great day!

My Pink Designer's

It's Tuesday, you know what that means? More projects from My Pink Designer's. This week we will see Karla and Rowena. Again, the theme for this month is "spring treats".

"Ice cream sundae" card

It must have been that I was hungry for ice cream that I made this ice cream sundae card. I used the "sweet treats" cricut cartridge (page 30) and cut all parts at 7.5 inches. It was pretty simple to layer up. I used my Cuttlebug as well, swiss dots, harlequin, floral fantasy, and d'vine swirl. I wanted to make the sundae cup look like a real cup, so I cut a page protector apart and placed it onto my Cricut cutting mat and cut out the "blackout" layer of the image. Next, I just cut off the ice cream portion and that left me with the "cup" portion. I adhered it to another "blackout" layer that I cut from cardstock and ran both pieces through my Cuttlebug giving me a "glass" look. The "sweet" stamp is from "simply sweet occasions" by My Pink Stamper. Thanks for visiting have a great day.

First challenge for My Pink Stamper

Today Robyn aka My Pink Stamper posted a color challenge using your Cricut and the colors pink, green, and black. Also posted were the projects made by the Pink Design Team. Here was my project.

The card base is a standard size. The papers and cardstock are all DCWV. The skunk was cut from the "create a critter" cartridge at 3.5 inches. I used my Cuttlebug (swiss dots)  for the light pink layer of the skunk. I thought this first challenge was fun and I love the colors that Robyn chose for it.

Easter Sunday

Happy Easter to you! We had a great weekend and beautiful weather that couldn't be beat. Not much planned for today, except for relaxing. My husband and I have been building a deck out our back door, it's coming along.

So, the "top secret info" from Above Rubies Studio was just a little April Fool's Day prank! Though ALL of the information stated is ALL TRUE. So, be sure to check over there. Tons of great giveaways and upcoming news on "Club Ruby" very exciting stuff!!

Apparently there has been a security breach over at Above Rubies Studio. Confidential information that was meant for the Club Ruby Design Team has SOME HOW leaked out. I hope that Megan is not forced to END the TOP SECRET MISSION due to the lack of security..................
