Episode 184 - Forever Young Purse Set

Hi friends!!!


Today I am going to share with you a super fun project.  I was going crazy over this in My Pink Loft last night.  The paper was flying, my Cricut was humming, and, of course, I was having the time of my life!  

I hope you enjoy this gift idea.  I have made these in the past using Tags, Bags, Boxes and More but this was the first time I used Cricut Forever Young Cartridge.  Enjoy!


Don't forget that if you added my blinkie on a message board, especially the Cricut Message Board, please remove them.  I talked to my Provo Craft contact yesterday and although they love My Pink Stamper, it has gotten a little crazy with the Pinkie Blinkies!  We decided it would be best just to remove these now.  You are welcome to keep them up on your blogs and smaller message boards.  :)

Also, My Pink Stamper's Cricut Fun Volume 2 DVD is now in stock and SHIPPING!!!  The link is on the top right side of my blog.  Just click on it and it will take you directly over to where my product can be purchased.  This new DVD is a 2 disc set with a ton of projects and info on it!  If you enjoy any of my other videos you are sure to love this DVD, too!

***Here are some links to buy 3 1/8 x 3 1/8 sized envelopes.  I checked Clearbags.com and did not see that size anymore.***

Blinkie Giveaway!!

Hi everyone!!!


I first want to thank you all for sharing my fun blinkie with those online!!  I am going to go ahead and do the Expression drawing tomorrow morning so you will want to check back then.


For those of you who added my blinkie to ANY message board, if you can please remove it as soon as possible that would be great.  I have heard that they are kind of taking over the crafting communities!!  I have felt the love but it's probably a good idea to go ahead and remove it.  A lot of these message boards want to keep the signatures to a limit and ours is a little bigger than allowed.  LOL!!  Thank you so much for having fun with this!!  If you have added it to your blog I would be honored if you kept it but I will leave that up to you.  


Thanks everyone for your love and support!  This has been a crazy week so far.  I am seeing PINK flashing blinkies in my sleep and I know that A LOT of others are, too!!!  LOL!

Episode 183 - Cricut-Hopper SYI Card

Hello my friends, old & new!!


I first wanted to say "welcome" to all our new viewers.  I hope you will feel at home here on My Pink Stamper and on My Pink Stamper Fan Page.  If you have any questions or requests you can always reach me at mypinkstamper@gmail.com.


I made the following video using Cricut Stretch Your Imagination Cartridge.  I hope it helps out at least one viewer!!


We were trying to make the layering in the Card feature work.  You can always layer the image on it's own but this is a bit more tricky.  :)

A Giveaway For everyone!!

Me again!!


Okay, I feel really bad for leaving out some of my faithful blog viewers with the Expression giveaway being limited to only those who can post their blinkie somewhere.  I have decided to do another giveaway that EVERYONE will be included in.


Honestly, you know me, and I like my giveaways to be available to everyone and have never asked anyone to Follow me or Subscribe to be entered.  The blinkie giveaway is just a one time giveaway to thank all of those who share My Pink Stamper online with others.  I truly appreciate it and Custom Crops was soooo nice to donate another Cricut Expression.  They have already donated 3 other Expressions for me to give away in the past and those were available to everyone.  


I hope that this will help everyone to feel included.  I am so grateful for ALL of you, whether you are on Facebook, own a blog, or not.  Thanks for all your support and love over the years.


I have a Cricut Campout Cartridge sitting here ready to give away to one lucky viewer.  Just leave a comment on this post on a fun summer activity that you like to do along with a way for me to get a hold of you.  Good luck!!

Episode 180 - Just Because Cards

How exciting to be a part of this release!! I think these cartridges are AMAZING!!!!

The projects in this post were from
Cricut Just Because Cards Cartridge. Super easy to make and assemble cards with this cartridge.


I am really looking forward to summer. No school, lazy days, and eating lots of watermelon! This card will be perfect to give to someone during the hot days of summer!!

I used the Cuttlebug to emboss the black piece of cardstock. Black Stickles were added to the seeds.

This birthday card was sooo easy to make! I love how the top layer is a scalloped rectangle. I am LOVING scallops still and it has been over 3 years since they were HOT!!

Don't those flowers look good enough to eat up? Of course, if I was given a cake with flowers on it I don't think I would eat them!

Here is a simple card video made using this cartridge. I love ladybugs!! Actually, I don't think there are many things that I don't love. Well......... maybe seafood. YUCK!!

Episode 179 - Give a Hoot Cricut Cartridge!!!

Hello Everyone!!!

I am sooooo excited to have been able to help with Provo Craft's Hello Tuesday!!! There are some GREAT cartridges coming out this year and I am having a blast playing with them!!

This first project was done using Cricut Give a Hoot Cartridge. Here are a few samples that I made using it. There is a video at the end of this post with more ideas and a project. :)




Isn't that raccoon the cutest thing ever???



This cartridge is JAM-PACKED with so much stuff!! There are cute images, accents, borders, and phrases! Enough to keep you busy for a while.



The layers were simple to put together without any problems. :)

Didn't that page turn out so super adorable????

For this next project I wanted to try out the cute little squirrel with his yummy food!


I like how easy it was to use my Fit to Length button on my Cricut Expression to make my border exactly the length I needed for this card.

I LOVE bees!!! For this card I used vellum for the wings and just creased them a little and folded them upwards. I like how the effect turned out.


The ribbon was a blast!! I used wired floral ribbon from Hobby Lobby and used the technique I learned from Natalie at Custom Crops. I didn't need to sew it after because of the wire. To attach it I used ScorPal tape. 


 The stamp on following card is from My Pink Stamper line of stamps which you can view over at www.customcrops.com. I used a white ink pad to stamp it so it would show up on the black.

My Pink Stamper T-Shirts......

Hi everyone!!

I hope you are having a fabulous day! I have gotten a lot done already and it is only 8:30 and it's probably because my 3 year old is still in bed. LOL!!! Anyway, I wanted to share that My Pink Stamper t-shirts are now available at Custom Crops for a very limited time while supplies last. I posted this last night on my Facebook page, so I know that one of the sizes is almost out. Here is the direct link.......

My Pink Stamper Shirts - Click Here

The shirts are pre-shrunk and are only $10 (while supplies last)

Below my friend, Emma, is graciously posing in one of the shirts. I decided not to do pink this time..... *****GASP*****!! I know that not everyone is crazy about pink and also some of my fans are guys. Next time I have them designed and made I will throw some more colors to the mix and step them up a bit.



Don't forget that if you want to know about My Pink Stamper happenings BEFORE I post them on my blog you might want to sign up for my Facebook pages. Here are the links.....

Family History (aka Scrapbooking) Challenge!

Hi Everyone!

I hope you all are having a peaceful Sunday! I have decided to include you in on my own type of Sunday challenge. This is the one day of the week, after I get home from church, that I like to work on my personal scrapbooking. This is a perfect day to pull out those pictures or journal on ones you have already finished.

Here is my challenge for you.......

Make a layout about something you LOVE. If you do not scrapbook, make a card to give to someone you love. I will do mine and post it in a bit. I am off to finish making my RED dinner of spaghetti, with my PINK desert of raspberry sherbet. :)

Happy Valentine's Day (Giveaway!) Winner Announced!

Hello Everyone!!!

I hope you are having a wonderful PINK weekend!!! This is my favorite holiday of the year! I know, I say that everything is my favorite because most of the time it is at that moment. Can you guess why I love Valentine's Day?????

Yep, you guessed it! It is the one time of year I can make PINK things for EVERYONE and nobody complains. My type of holiday!

Last night I was up until close to midnight finishing off the SIMPLEST goodie bags for my 2 kids that are in Elementary school. My oldest is in Middle School and she informed me that they don't do that anymore. She was a bit sad about it, too. Poor sweet girl!!

As you can tell from these goodie bags I just kept them BASIC. A folded over 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 piece of black cardstock and then a 2 inch scalloped heart from Doodlecharms. Simple enough!!


The first thing my two kids did this morning was run to my office and find the OTHER Valentine's I had originally bought when I didn't think I was making them their own. They wanted to have the OTHER ones! Can you believe it. I think they are just sooooo used to me making goodie bags that they think it is neat to just do things the normal way. I finally convinced them to take my "blood, sweat, and tears" bags that I slaved over. (No guilt or anything :) !

I started a family tradition a few years ago of a PINK Valentine's breakfast. We decided to do it this morning since our weekend is pretty busy. I try to get everything PINK to eat. Here is what we had this year...... pink tulips (we didn't eat those), pink frosted mini wheats, raspberries, strawberries, pink frosted donuts, pink marshmallows, pink yogurt, pink cream cheese with bagels, pink milk, and pink hostess treats.

After all of that, the only thing they really ate was the donuts & their candy. Yes, I also give them Pink goodies. This year I decorated Target mailboxes and filled them with candy. They also got a Pez dispenser and a little heart box of chocolates ($1).


The winner has already been announced for this giveaway. :)
