More Doodlebuggin'

Here's the next installment in my Doodlebug Design Inc projects.  And this is why I love their products so much - they're just so fun!  The adorable paper in the background is from their Summertime Collection and is called Little Lady.  I took three cuts from their Feeling Groovy Cute Cuts - the pink flower, the tag, and the "smile".  Then I took some brads from their Cherries Jubilee Boutique Brads - one is the center of the flower, and the other is the red with the white polka dots.

You might also notice that I have started using baker's twine.  Baker's twine is everywhere in the papercrafting world right now, and I have to admit, when I first noticed it I was not sold on it at all.  But I have seen too many adorable projects embellished with twine, so I had to get some and give it a try.  I wish I could say that this is the Doodlebug Design Doodle Twine, but it was just introduced at CHA in July and isn't readily available yet.  Maybe they'll have some at the Scrapbook USA Expo next week!  I really like the look it creates.

My absolute favorite papercrafting company is Doodlebug Design Inc.  All I have to do is go to the Doodlebug isle at my local craft store, and it just makes me happy!  I love their color palette, I love the fun images, their boutique brads, their glitter paper, I love to go to their booth during the Scrapbook USA Expo (which is coming up BTW), I just LOVE them!  I love what they did at this summer's CHA.  Did you know that they won an award at CHA for their super fun booth?  How could they not?  Their wonderful new products and creative exhibiting just screamed fun!

Last week I spent some quality time with my Doodlebug Design Inc products, and this week I am going to share them with you!

I made this layout using primarily their Welcome Home collection.  Aren't those just the cutest kids you've ever seen?  I don't know whose they are - I just found them on the street and dragged them in for a picture!  ;-)

My Pink Stamper DT - August

Happy August everyone!  And why are we happy?  Because today is the first day of school here!  LOL!  Seriously though, this summer flew by for me and I think this is the first time that I'm kind of sad it's time for the kids to go back to school. 

Another reason to be happy?  Because it's time for another My Pink Stamper Design Team post!  I am still having a blast playing with the stamps from Robyn's recent release.  As I mentioned in my previous post, I love apples!  And Robyn has the perfect stamp in her set School Days:

Stamps:  My Pink Stamper School Days
Cricut Cartridge:  Country Life (tree, apples, Home Grown), Plantin Schoolbook (ovals)
Paper:  DCWV (Nantucket), Me & My Big Ideas (stripes), AC Cardstock
Edge Punch:  Martha Stewart Scallop Dot
Embellishments:  Diamond Glaze, assorted buttons, ribbon (Michaels)

What's for dinner?

Even though it is hot as Hades outside right now, at this time of the year my mind inevitably starts thinking of Autumn.  It's my favorite time of the year for so many reasons, not the least of which being that I love apples.  They were my inspiration for my most recent Cricut Creations class project at my local Joann.  They had these really cute Darice chalk boards, so I picked one up and embellished it using the Country Life Cricut cartridge.

These are the colors that I have in my kitchen, so eventually this will be sitting on my kitchen counter (or maybe hanging on the wall), so I can leave messages for my kids, write what we're having for dinner, and who knows what else.  I'm sure the kids will get in on the fun too, so hopefully whatever is written on here stays polite!  ;-)

Cricut Cartridge:  Country Life (apples, pie, Get Cookin'), Plantin Schoolbook (ovals and scallop trim)
Paper:  Me & My Big Ideas (stripes), DCWV (red gingham), AC Cardstock
Accessories:  Diamond Glaze, DCWV (buttons)

Pinkalicious Blog Hop Friday!

I am so happy that you have joined us for My Pink Stamper's Pinkalicious Blog Hop Friday!  This is going to be a fabulous blog hop as each Pink Designer showcases her individual style and Robyn's new stamp release.  If you arrived here from My Pink Stamper, welcome!  If you stopped by my blog on your own tonight, I invite you hop over to My Pink Stamper so you can begin at the beginning and join in the fun!  Read on to the end if you'd like to see what I'm giving away!

This is me!  I live in Utah, but am originally from the Toronto area in Ontario, Canada.  My husband and I have been married for 15 years and my life revolves around my three children, my Church, and my paper fetish!  I teach piano lessons, and Cricut classes at my local Joann.  I have been papercrafting for 20 years, but I have to say, my love has grown to a whole new level since getting my Cricut a year and a half ago.  If I had to classify my papercrafting style, I would call it whimsical.  I love fun images, sparkles, and vivid colors. 

For my project I have showcased Robyn's new set Yummy-licious:

I just LOVE this set!  It was almost like Robyn custom designed Yummy-licious for me because not only do I like to bake, but I love to use yummy images in my scrapbooking and cardmaking.

I didn't use an edible image in this card though - see how versatile this set is?  I have been wanting to make this card for weeks now, and when I got Yummy-licious I finally had the perfect sentiment to go with it.  As you have probably noticed from the name of my blog, I am all about all things homey!  These are pretty basic cuts on this card - the only things that required the Gypsy were the fence and the grass.  I welded those together so I could get the length I wanted.

StampsMy Pink Stamper Yummy-licious
Cricut Cartridges:  Kate's ABCs (house, butterfly), Paper Doll Dress-Up (fence), Plantin Schoolbook (grass)
Paper:  Doodlebug Design (Welcome Home), Stampin' Up!, AC Cardstock, DCWV

More My Pink Stamper New Release!

The new stamp set from My Pink Stamper that I will feature today is:

Winter Treats & Sayings

Is it silly that I had so much fun making something for Christmas this time of the year?  And how did Robyn know that I needed this stamp?  At our house, the reindeer eat Chex Muddy Buddies.  It's especially magical when you sprinkle them with edible glitter - the kids (and the reindeer) love it! 

Cricut Cartridge:  Winter Woodland
Paper:  DCWV, Stampin Up
Embellishments:  Martha Stewart (ribbon), Recollections (gems), Stickles

My Pink Stamper - NEW RELEASE!

Did you know that Robyn at My Pink Stamper just released some new stamps?  And if it's even possible, I think these may be the best yet!  Today I am going to feature projects that were made using:

School Days

This is the first project that I have made with 3 Birds on Parade - I got it a few weeks ago but haven't been able to play with it because of my move.  I thought of it immediately for the School Days set.  I love this sentiment because it is so versatile!  

Cricut Cartridge:  3 Birds on Parade
Embossing:  Quickutz
Edge Punch:  Martha Stewart Scallop Dot
Paper:  Doodlebug Design, Stampin Up, AC Cardstock, DCWV
Embellishments:  Doodlebug Design (brad), American Crafts (ribbon)

This is a very simple layout using Simply Charmed.  There are such cute school cuts on this cartridge!  I don't think I'll be using this for my girls this year though - they are starting 5th and 7th grade.  This is going to have to wait until next year when my son starts kindergarten!

Cricut Cartridge:  Simply Charmed
Paper:  AC Cardstock, DCWV
