My Pink Stamper Design Team - February

Welcome!  Thanks for stopping by today for this month's My Pink Stamper design team post.  The challenge that I and my fellow designers were given today was to make a project that used as many My Pink Stamper Stamps as we could.  As luck would have it, at the moment I am working with the ladies in my church congregation to put together some recipe books for the graduating senior girls in our neighborhood.  A number of ladies in our women's organization submitted recipes, and we are compiling them in 8 x 8 albums where each page has been decorated by someone different.

I am a real foodie, so this was the perfect project for me.  And it just so happens that Robyn has the CUTEST, most perfect stamps to go in a recipe book.  The sets that I used for this project are Yummylicious:

 and Sweetest Cupcakes:

Here is what I made:

The recipe that I included on the page is for Amish Baked Oatmeal (a recipe I found online), so naturally I thought of the Country Life Cricut Cartridge.  And I just love this paper from Pebbles from their Fresh Goods line.  You'll see in the top left hand corner I used the "From the kitchen of" stamp from Yummylicious.  Then where the scallop border is I used the "yum!" and "mmmmm..." stamps from Sweetest Cupcakes, and "Scrumptious!" from Yummylicious.  All the perfect sentiments for a really yummy recipe.  If you want to mix up your morning breakfast routine a little, try this one - it's super yummy.

Stamps:  My Pink Stamper Yummylicious and Sweetest Cupcakes
Cricut Cartridge:  Country Life
Paper:  Pebbles Inc, AC Cardstock, DCWV
Border Punch:  American Crafts Knock-Outs Scallop and Notebook
Accessories:  Baker's twine, misc. buttons

Thanks for stopping by.  If you haven't already, be sure to swing over to My Pink Stamper so you can see all the wonderful projects that my fellow designers have made.  Have a wonderful day!

Pinkalicious Blog Hop Friday!

Welcome to my favorite Friday of the month - Pinkalicious Blog Hop Friday!  If you arrived here from Alex's blog, then you're in the right place.  If you arrived here on your own tonight, I invite you to hop along to My Pink Stamper so you can begin at the beginning and see all the wonderful projects that were created just for tonight's blog hop.

The challenge for tonight's blog hop was to create a project using the color red, a circle, some pink ribbon and not one, but TWO wonderful My Pink Stamper stamps.  The sets that I used are Buggy Punnies:

and Everyday Life:

Here's my creation:

I think my favorites of Robyn's stamps are the "punny" ones, and she has so many of them!  They're cute, they're fun, and they coordinate so well with many Cricut cartridges.  I love this font too, and the fact that I could find the perfect coordinating sentiment in the same font.  If you would like to find a retailer where you can purchase they wonderful stamps, click here.  I also incorporated another of my favorites in tonight's project - Doodlebug Design Inc paper.  I love the colors and the whimsical prints.

Recipe to share

Have you heard of Bountiful Baskets?  It is a fruit & veggie co-op that I have been participating in for a couple of years now.  It is a great way to get fresh fruits and veggies for an insanely good price - especially in the wintertime.  It is not in every state, but quite a few from east to west.  Even if you don't have Bountiful Baskets, there may be other opportunities for co-ops in your area.  Once in a while I get a large amount of a particular fruit or vegetable, so I have to go looking for recipes so I can use it up.  Thank goodness for Allrecipes.com!  I love their ingredients search. 

I thought I'd share a very simple and tasty recipe that I discovered this past weekend.  It was a family pleaser!  Even my if-it's-healthy-it-will-kill-me husband liked it.;-)


Green Pepper Tomato Salad

  • 3 medium tomatoes, seeded and chopped
  • 1 medium green pepper, chopped
  • 1 celery rib, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup chopped red onion
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper


  1. In a large bowl, combine the tomatoes, green pepper, celery and onion. In a small bowl, combine the vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper. Stir into tomato mixture. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, stirring several times. Serve with a slotted spoon.
