"My Pink Stamper Design Project for March" is more Fun with Kate's ABC's

 I have to tell you I really love this cartridge.  This paper was perfect-Echo Park "Little Girl"  Such vibrant colors!
This amazing tricycle was cut at 3 inches.
The background paper had a scallop circle only.  I decided to cut a 10 1/2 inch circle in brown and cut a 10 inch circle in the plaid paper to add some depth to the layout.

The title was cut at 3 1/2 inches.  I just simply inked and added the dots.

For the journal box I used Lacy Labels shadow cut in brown at 2 inches. Then cut without shadow in the dark pink and the same cut but in white for the stamp.  I just cut the tag down a bit.  

This stamp set is one of Robyn's many great sentiments.  Check out her full line HEREYou will want to collect them all...

Remember-When I reach 1500 followers I will have a big giveaway......

Have a great day!

A Beautiful View

Last weekend a large group of ladies went to South Lake Tahoe for a retreat.  Amazing...

This is a picture of the ride up.  We encountered a little snow....I loved it so much.
 This is the view right outside the door of our very large room.  This is also the stairs that I twisted my ankle on.  I am now known as "Grace".  Really it is not super new to me.

 This are just a few of my peeps...There were about 37 ladies...  And yes-the stairs in the back are the way you go to get your car....
In this picture you can see the snow storm coming in.  Amazing...This was a super great trip....

My Pink Stampers Blog Hop

Hello My Pink Stamper Fans,

I am so excited to be here with you guys.  If you did not start with Robyn's blog-then click HERE

Thank you for visiting me from Raechel's blog...
  • I really love to make bags with Tags, Bags, Boxes and More using 12x24 cardstock.  When doing this make sure you change your mat size each time you insert your paper.  Also set your machine on Fit to Page-Watch the size as it flashes on the screen.  Mine cut at 11 1/2 inches...  
  • The handle is my little cheater way of designing my own ribbon. (ha, ha)     I love both colors of ribbon so I just used adhesive and applied to the back of the turquoise ribbon and place in the center of the brown dot ribbon (Brown dot ribbon is from Michael's and the turquoise is from Joanne's)
This paper is Gabrielle from BoBunny.  
  •  There are soo many beautiful sheets to this paper.  The sheets have butterflies that are spread throughout the paper.  I just cut several of the butterflies from the sheet then added ink & stickles.  When I attached them to the paper I only put the adhesive on the body of the butterfly so that the wings could be bent to give the project dimension.


 This is just another close up of the project.

  • I wanted you to see a close up of the ribbon.  This is really easy to do.  I just started at the top (inside of the purse) and gathered a few pleats and applied adhesive (fabric-tac).  I continued until I got to the bottom.  And of course-I added a little bling.

Hope you enjoyed my gift bag.  Make sure you leave a comment.  I also want to let you know that when I hit my goal of 1500 followers-I will have some big blog candy..Make sure you check back....

Now to your next blog Sonia and just click HERE  and make sure you also show some love to our Guest Blogger-Kristal.................Wahooooo!  Congrats to her!

I am giving you the blog order just in case you get lost.....

Have a super weekend.----Wendy-Bling Queen

Horsin' Around Part 2

 Happy Thursday- This post is part 2.  Part 1 was yesterday's post.  If you missed it then-check out yesterday's post.
  •  For this card -I did the same thing with the hat as the girl card. Without embossing hat...
  • For the mane on the horse I simply used some brown(Capacinno) twine and glued to the horse. (does not have to be a specific length-I used 1/2" pieces.  I then gave the horse a haircut.
  • For the stick on the horse-I did the same as the girl.
  • I embossed the ivory colored cardstock with Diamond in the Rough embossing folder and my cuttlebug. 
  • And the back brown piece was also punched using the same Stampin Up punch.
  • For the jute I honestly just made a design and glued it down.  I used Zip Dry for most of these items.
  • After jute was down I added the horse shoes also cut from the same cart. These are cut at 1 1/2 inches.
The sentiment was stamped and glued on a leftover piece of background paper and I added the copper brads.  Again this stamp is one of My Pink Stampers.

Don't forget to come back tomorrow for an awesome blog hop with some super talented ladies.

Merci Card+Awesome blog candy again...

TGIF  I am sure you guys are excited it is Friday!!

My project today is a card-Super easy!.. I did it in about 20 minutes...

First of all the paper I used was-Echo Park "For The Record".  I thought the paper went well with the cartridge "French Manor"  but never fear if you are not in the circle and do not have this cart you can use "Summer in Paris" and substitute a bit. I cut my tower at 5" and Merci at 1 ".

I used pop dots on the tower.  The ribbon is just black satin ribbon from Stampin Up.

I hope you have been to Everyday Cricut to check out Monique's project and another new kit... If not you have to click HERE.  She also has some great blog candy...

Now for my blog candy-Hmmm  How about another kit??? Yikes Did I just say that? 
This is my Live Simply kit... I used Graphically Speaking and Accent Essentials to make it.

Guess what?  I will be back on Everyday Cricut tomorrow for my Normal Saturday Designer Post.  So don't forget to check back...
