12 Days of Christmas Winners!!

Hello Everyone!!

Thank you so much for sharing the 12 Days of Christmas with me!! 
Congratulations to all of the winners and thank you to everyone for your continued support!  I couldn't do all of this without you.  I hope you all have a WONDERFUL day!  Still many more GREAT things to come on My Pink Stamper!  We reached 6 Million Hits a few days ago so there will be a HUGE celebration coming up!!

Disney Classics Cricut Cartridge 2 Page Layout

Hi Everyone!!

It is Wednesday and a great day so far!  The workers are mudding the drywall today and they should be done with everything by next week.  That means all I will need to do is the painting, lighting, and then carpeting.  My island for filming my Cricut DVDs and videos is being custom built so I need to go today and pick out my counter top for it.  Not sure of the color yet.  Something that will showcase the projects easily and work well with my professional lighting. :)  So much fun!!!  I'm getting antsy about it getting finished.  I have two big projects that I will need to finish before CHA that I need to get cracking on!  :)

Here is a fun and bright 2 page scrapbook layout using the upcoming Disney Classics Cricut Cartridge.  I hope you like it!  





I will be picking all 12 winners from the 12 Days of Christmas in a bit.  :)

Day 12 - 12 Days of Christmas! It's a Gypsy giveaway!!!

*This is from December 2010*

Merry Christmas Eve Everyone!!!

Today is going to be a very busy day for all of us!  I thought I would wrap up the 12 days of Christmas with an awesome giveaway!!  It's a brand new Gypsy donated by ME!!  I earned this Gypsy this year and have decided that I don't need two of them.  :)  For this special giveaway I would like you to leave a comment on what your favorite thing you have ever seen on My Pink Stamper.  I cannot believe that we will hit 6 million views this week!  My counter broke but I have a backup I need to add on.  We will be celebrating that next week.  Hopefully they will also be finished with my new Pink Studio next week so I can film some fun videos for you guys in there.

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas.  If any of you are alone this year I wish you the comfort in knowing that you do have people that care about you.  Just imagine a virtual hug from me and your Father in Heaven.  :)

Okay, here is our fun giveaway!  Don't forget that you can still enter to win all of the other 11 giveaways, too, by clicking HERE.  I will draw all 12 winners next week!

Day 11 - 12 Days of Christmas!!

Hello Everyone!

Wow!  Only two more days until Christmas!  Where has the time gone?  There seems to be so many different things going on around here.  2010 was a wonderful year and I have all of you to thank for that!

Tonight we are having friends over for an early Christmas Eve.  Every year, since the year we were dating, we have had "Make Your Own Pizza" night on Christmas Eve and then acted out the Nativity.  This is a tradition from my hubby's side of the family.  Since we have been invited to another friend's house tomorrow we decided to go ahead and have our tradition tonight.  People will be arriving in about 2 hours so I need to hurry and start the dough.  Everyone gets to make their own pizza!  Doesn't that sound like fun?  I found my dough recipe this year from allrecipes.com and it is called Pizza Dough 1.

We also let the kids open up one present (which is always a pair of new jammies that they instantly change into for Christmas morning).  We will probably do that one tomorrow night when we return. 

Here are pictures of us from last year on Christmas Eve.  Do you all have any fun Christmas Eve traditions?


 This was the first year that we didn't have a real baby for the baby Jesus.  I normally have a bundle of joy that we use.  :)  It looks like it will be dolls until the grandbabies start to arrive.  Not too soon, though!  My oldest daughter is only 12!
 Daddy gets to be the donkey every year!  LOL!!  The kids love that.  Don't know how many more years he is going to be able to do that one.  :)
For today's giveaway the winner gets to pick ANY two My Pink Stamper items.  I have 17 stamp sets to choose from and 4 DVDs!  



Just leave a comment sharing a tradition your family has.  If you don't celebrate Christmas then please share one of your family's traditions.  :)

Day 10 - 12 Days of Christmas - Jolly Holidays Giveaway!

I hope you are all having the HAPPIEST Wednesday EVER!  I'm doing all right!  I got up, went to the gym and ran 2 miles (yes, my foot is still in pain), then went to Weight Watchers where I was informed that I've gained 1.2 pounds since my last visit.  That's okay because what goes up must come down, right?  I am more motivated then ever to get my body back to good health even if it is before the holidays.  You can check out my weight loss blog HERE or Facebook page HERE if you would like to join me in my continued journey.

Okay, so I thought today we would just have a fun giveaway!  I was able to pick up another Jolly Holidays and I thought I would give it away to one of you guys!!  It will be great for those Christmas & Winter scrapbook pages when you get your pics developed.  

Just leave a comment on THIS post with what you like to do in the Winter Time!  Easy Peasy!!

Day 9 - 12 Days of Christmas - Imaginisce Project and Giveaway!

Hello Everyone!!!

On the 9th Day of Christmas My Pink Stamper was very frustrated with her internet service!  LOL!!  Nope, I still have not been able to upload my video.  We are going to have the Cox guys come out asap.  The good thing about my new construction (  :)  ) is that I will have another wireless spot in my house that is right next to my office.  Hopefully that will help with a faster connection!!  

I am so excited that Imaginisce asked me to be a guest designer again!  I feel truly blessed this year to have had so many awesome opportunities to work with great companies.  I love so many things about the Imaginisce product line.  This project was made using the Garden Party and the new i-Bond tool that is soooo awesome!!  






For today's giveaway, Imaginisce has donated the entire Garden Party line along with a new i-bond!!!  All you need to do is leave a comment on this post!  You can also go over to their blog HERE and leave them some love!

Sorry everyone!  I have been trying unsuccessfully to upload a video since last night.  I will just go ahead and post the giveaway and project in a little bit.  I will put up the video as soon as it works.  We are having mega internet problems today.  I feel like I am on dial-up again!!!

Day 6 - 12 Days of Christmas! New DVD & a Challenge!!

Hi Everyone!



Okay, it's official!!  My latest DVD, Cricut Layouts, is now in stock!  I just received my box for family & giveaways yesterday!  So excited!  How about I give away 2 of these DVDs.  I will be honest with you.  This is my favorite DVD that I have made so far.  There are 12 2-page layouts on it.  One for every month of the year!  Just leave a comment on this post to be entered in the drawing to win one of two of these!  Did I mention that there are just around 5 hours of Cricut instruction on this 2 disc DVD set?  Even if you just bought your Cricut you will be able to make these projects as I walk you through step by step.  



Now for the challenge!!  I want to go along with the themes from my newest DVD.  How about if we all do a Christmas card or scrapbook layout?  If you don't celebrate Christmas then do a Winter themed project.  Remember that this has to be something that you create JUST for this challenge.  It cannot be something from your past blog entries or uploads.  Thanks!

Day 5 - 12 Days of Christmas! - More Goodie Bags and a giveaway!

Hi Guys!

Guess what??  My 5 year old now has the high fever, sore throat, and cough sickness!  I think that my other son is coming down with it, too.  I'm also starting to feel a bit under the weather.  Good thing this is coming during our break and we don't have any big plans.

Yesterday I was super busy making these goodie bags for 2 of my kids class parties.  Hope you like them!  I think they turned out super cute!  

I used Simply Charmed for the mittens and cut them at 2 3/4 inches.  The Snow Adorable is from Winter Punnies stamp set from My Pink Stamper (that's ME!)

Let's give away a set of my Love-alicious Stamp Set to get everyone ready for the season of love!  LOL!  Just leave a comment on this post.
