Anything but a card.....

Was our assignment for our DT post today at Craft Junkie Too. Most of you know how much I LOVE 3D projects!!! I always say "less is more", but when you're making it for a kid, you can throw that out the window and just decorate away!!!! :) I kept going back and forth on whether I wanted a Halloween or Fall project, then I figured I have the whole month of October for Halloween (which is one of my favorite holidays). Here's my little Fall treat box...

P.S. Sorry I've been MIA for a while. My little man had pneumonia and crafting took a back seat for a few! He's all better now :)

Hello fellow crafters! Welcome to another My Pink Stamper Design Team day!! Today's assignment for was to create a Halloween project using the new Spook-alicious stamp set. After playing around with a few different ideas, a Halloween fabric I had seen at Hobby Lobby came to mind, and so did the idea for this card. I wanted it to look like eyes peaking out in the dark...something different (even though it sometimes doesn't look exactly how it did in your mind lol). Hope you like it!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Autumn Favorites

Today is Design Team day at Craft Junkie Too, and the theme is Autumn Favorites! I couldn't pick just one thing I like about Fall, so I went with something that symbolizes it all for me... a pumpkin! When I think of pumpkins, I think of pumpkin patches, jack-o-lanterns, pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving, and the beautiful colors of Fall. Here's a quick card using My Pink Stamper Spook-alicious stamp set....

International Chocolate Day

My son's daycare has fun days that the kids participate in - pajama day, teddy bear day, crazy hair day, etc. - that are so much fun! Today is International Chocolate Day! Who knew there was a day dedicated to yummy, sweet chocolate?! Since it wasn't something he could "do", I decided to make his teachers a little treat. I LOVE this paper full of ducks and frogs, because it's just perfect for a toddler teacher! The sentiment is from My Pink Stamper new 'Yummy-licious' set.

Spotlight Saturday with Scrappy Zeni

Zeni @ Scrappy Zeni invited me to be featured on her blog for her Spotlight Saturday, and I was sooo excited to say YES!!!! I wanted to do something different than my normal, everyday projects, so I tried something new!

It all started on Black Friday last year, when Walmart had a sewing machine for $50. Yup, $50! Did I know how to sew?! No clue! But it was just too cheap to pass up...and I was already there with a cart full of cartridges anyways lol. So, almost nine months later, I finally pulled it out of the box and called my mother for a sewing 101. She very patient taught me the ins and outs, and asked why I couldn't start with a simpler project....but I wanted to do it my way (*insert big grin here*). Here's how my mini treat/gift card/(whatever you'd want to use it for) bag turned out....

I say I didn't do too bad for my first time, but I definitely have a lot to learn....especially because I had to re-do the top at least once because I sewed it completely crooked. I see many mini bags in my future, especially with Halloween right around the corner, so stayed tuned!!!

My Pink Stamper Blog Hop: School Days

Welcome to my blog! If you just hopped over from Julie's @ Ready, Set, Stamp, then you're in the right place. If you're just stopping by for a visit, and would like to hop along, go to My Pink Stamper to start at the beginning.

Today's blog hop assignment was to create a school related, 3-D project. I LOVE 3-D projects, and knew right away what I wanted to do! I bought these boxes at Michael's for about $2.00 each (super cheap) a few weeks ago to make a "Teacher Survival Kit". I considered putting cute paper clips, pins, etc. in it, but then I thought that most teachers - like myself - have plenty of that....and that you can never go wrong with chocolate :). The inside looked a little plain, though plenty colorful, so I decided to add some school sentiments inside - all from My Pink Stamper's School Days set.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my project!

Your next stop on the hop is Edna @ Create with Expression

Here's the line-up in case you get lost along the way....

School Days

With all the kiddoes going back to school, today's challenge at Cooking with Cricut is School Days. After finding a two tumbler pack at TJMaxx for super cheap this past weekend, I was so excited to try out vinyl for the first time. For the little gift tag, I used My Pink Stamper's School Days stamp set.

Any ideas for an everyday, non-school related tumbler?! :)
