Episode 56- A Simple Princess Card

Hi Everyone,

Well, I am on the road to recovery but not quite there yet. I am still pretty stuffy with a few of the symptoms but I will survive. Here is a quick card that I made for someone in my church. Isn't it sweet?? I hope you all have a terrific day!!

Isn't he precious??

Isn't my little baby the sweetest thing ever?? I'm so grateful for my children even though they drive me crazy sometimes. They are really good kids.

Our Fun Day

Hi Everyone,

I just wanted to share our fun night with our 3 oldest kids last night. We were able to see Ally & AJ in concert at a local amusement park. It was a blast!! We were able to get really good pics, too.

Kaleidacolor Ink Pads


A lot of you have asked me where you can get the Kaleidacolor stamp pads that I demo in one of my videos. Stampin' Up! no longer carries them and Hobby Lobby only has a small selection. Here is what my google search came up with. Hope it helps.....

Do you have a question??

It's come to my attention that I have missed replying to some questions some of you have asked me. I am sooooo sorry about this. Either I didn't see them, you didn't leave a reply e-mail, or it went to my Spam folder. I answer anywhere from 10-20 e-mails/PMs a day. I feel very bad that a few of you might have felt that I have ignored you for one reason or another. Believe me, I would never do this. Please leave me a comment in this post or e-mail me at robynstamps at yahoo dot com with any questions that I might have missed.

Thank you so much!
Robyn

Leave It To Weaver Card

I bought this Fiskars Leave it to Weaver punch last week and wondered what would I ever use it on!! Well, I decided to play with it tonight after encouragement from some of my Pink Ladies & Pink Koalas (The Pink Stamper fan club members) and this is what I came up with!! I read the tip for the grass on another website which I can't remember the name of now.



A BIG Pink Candy Giveaway coming SOON!!

Wow!! I cannot believe we are almost at 150,000 hits on The Pink Stamper. Thank you so much for taking the time out of your lives to visit me!!! I just checked and we hit 100,000 hits on May 20th, so that means that in a little over a month we have had 50,000 hits!!! That just blows me away!!!

Stay tuned........ I'll be posting my Pink Candy in the next day or so!!!

Episode 54- Kids' Krafts 3

Hey guys!

Well, I'm not feeling much better but life goes on. I just have an itchy throat, a little cough, and I'm stuffed up. I can deal with it since it's not too bad. It's sure hard to sleep with a stuffed up nose, though.

My kids made some videos yesterday afternoon that turned out really cute. I'll share my sons today and my daughters on Friday. Hope you enjoy!!

I can feel it coming!!!

Hi everyone!

I can feel a sickness coming on. I am just feeling super yucky! It hit me this afternoon right before I took my kids to the zoo to get out of the house. I'm sure that being out in the 90 degree weather didn't help much either. My throat hurts, I have a major headache, I'm grouchy, and I'm so tired.

I had planned on making a quick video tonight to upload in the morning but I am choosing bed instead. :) I hope you all have a fantastic Tuesday!! Hopefully this will be gone by morning but if not I will try to get lots of rest so I can come back to you all soon.

Just a card!

Hi everyone!!

I hope you are all having a fabulous Sunday!! I had a great morning in church and then a relaxing day at home with my family. Okay, who am I kidding??? It is never relaxing having 5 small, active children running around. :) I'm just sitting in my office right now waiting for my children to fall asleep so I made this card with the scraps left over from my tutorial yesterday. I'm going to sit down with my huge stash of cards tonight and just write letters to family & friends. It's been awhile!

Recipe:

Stamp set from Sweet N Sassy Stamps

Paper:  Apricot Appeal, Gable Green from Stampin' Up!;  Glitter Nana's Nursery Stack; Watercolor Paper

Threading Water Punch

Ribbon from Michaels; Primas; Diamond Stickles; Minibrad; Stampin' Write Markers

Fun Shopping Day!!

My mom and I have had a blast shopping around town. She comes from a town without a Hobby Lobby so we have visited a bunch today. We also went to Michaels where I got some new Primas, Leave it to Weaver, and some ribbon.


I NEED YOUR HELP!!

Can you please take a minute to vote for this cute couple and fellow scrapbooker?? They are trying to win a dream wedding and we are soooo close!! You can vote every 12 minutes. It would really help them out. Thanks so much!!

Another Owl Card - Episode 51

HI Everyone!!! Yes, I made a video!!! I love how this card turned out and the video making is getting easier & easier!!

***DISCLAIMER------  I have not had a chance to unmount these stamps yet so, yes, they are on wood blocks (GASP!!)*****  :)

Happy Father's Day!!

Hi everyone!

I thought I would check in since I have been MIA for a couple of days. My mom arrived on Friday and we have just been so busy. I am soooo tired from the lack of sleep. My toddler woke up last night very sick, so add cleaning up messes in the middle of the night to the equation and you've got a very tired Pink Stamper!!!

After I take a little nap today we are planning on spending the day doing family history (AKA SCRAPBOOKING!!!). I am hoping to get a lot done.

I hope you all are having a fabulous Father's Day. We gave my DH breakfast in bed and bought him a new watch. He is easy to please!

Yesterday was my DH & my 12 year anniversary. We didn't really do anything but spend the day on a road trip with my kids and my mom. We went to Independence, Kansas to see the Little House on the Prairie days and visit the little log house from when Laura and her family lived in Indian territory. I am in that book right now so it was really neat. I video taped some of it on my flip so I will share with you all later.

On Thursday my car basically was on it's last leg so my DH and I decided it was time to buy a "new" car. New to us is still a used car. We ended up getting an 07 Honda Odyssey LX-R with Navigation System and DVD. It is a really neat car. I feel very spoiled and grateful that we were able to get it. It has a sun/moon roof, leather seats, separate music & air controls for the back, a button I can push so that the side doors will open and close, heated seats, and 8th seat, and a few other "surprises" that I am finding every minute. It's nice to feel safe in a car again.

I'm planning on making a few videos this week so I hope you will all enjoy those. I just need to take care of my family & mom first.

Have a great day!
Robyn

Strawberry Card



Have you ever wanted to try a .cut file for your Cricut but you were too chicken??? Well, that was me up until yesterday. Can you believe that I had never downloaded anyone's .cut files before??? I went to Okie's blog yesterday and started downloading and then cutting! It was so super simple!!! Here is what I made!

Episode 48 (really) - The Crop-a-dile!

Hi guys!! Well, I've slowly but surely figuring out my new Mac along with my Flip video. I would prefer to have better quality but this will work fine for now.

This is really Episode 48 not 49 like it says in the title. Oooops!!! I couldn't remember which number I was on. It was an honest mistake, right??

Getting this figured out!

Some of you know that I got my new Macbook yesterday. I am trying now to get my flip video to work right with my IMovie08. I can do it but it is taking some time. Be patient while I am getting things going. I have some fun plans for future videos so get ready!!

I'll try to post something later. I hope you are all having a great day. I love my new Mac!! It's so nice being able to sit with my children while watching TV and checking the computer!!

My girls and I just got done making yummy cookies. I wish I could let all of you taste them because they turned out super yummy!!
