Fall Blog Hop!

If you've arrived to my blog from the Fall Blog Hop...WELCOME! I'm the last stop on the hop! You should've arrived here from Tracy's wonderful blog...Scrappin' in the woods with a Bug!

For my Fall project, I came up with a really easy idea for some Fall decor...I made my own decorative blocks! (Click on the pictures to view them larger.)

Materials Used:
Cricut Cartridges - Sweet Tooth Boxes, Sophisticated and Gypsy Wanderings
Paper - Tim Holtz
Hambly Grid Overlay

The blocks are cut from the Sweet Tooth cartridge using the CubeBox at 10.5" (just the box part, not the top). I used my Gypsy to add the letters before I cut it. The letters are from the Sophisticated cartridge, the upper case font. I stretched them a little to fill the space (width was 2.59" and height was 2.54"). ( a test cut first...the boxes are turned upside down when finished so you want the letters facing the right direction!)

The leaves are cut from the Gypsy Wanderings cartridge and attached with foam dots for dimension.

The Hambly overlay was cut by hand and applied to the inside of the letters.

It was so simple to put together!

Thank you for stopping by...and, I hope you've enjoyed our Fall Blog Hop! If you'd like to start again at the beginning...please go HERE to Kristen's My Fantabulous Life Blog!

Will work for...Magic Reindeer Food!

Here's my latest project for the My Pink Stamper design team! I made this card using one of Robyn's stamps from the Winter Treats & Sayings set. It's such a cute set, and it has so many great sayings on it!

My reindeer is from the cricut cartridge called Campin' Critters. He's usually holding a branch with fishing line attached and a fish on the end of his line...instead, I used my gypsy to weld a sign to the branch, covering over the fish, to create my sign saying "Will work for...Magic Reindeer Food".

Materials used:
Cardstock - Bazzill for the Green, Dark Brown, Brown Dot and Tan Dot, American Crafts for the White
Patterned Paper - Pebbles Inc.
Bakers Twine
Red Ribbon
Red Crystal for nose

Cricut Cartridge - Campin' Critters (deer and layers cut at 4.75")

Check out the My Pink Stamper website for lots of other great inspiration using Robyn's fantastic new stamp sets!!

My Pink Stamper...Pinkalicious Blog Hop!!!

Hi everyone! I'm Sharon and this is my first Pinkalicious blog hop as a design team member for My Pink Stamper! I'm so excited to be a part of this.

The project I created for the blog hop is a Halloween layout. I'm a scrapbooker and I love finding ways to use stamps on my layouts! I used two stamps from Robyn's Spook-alicious set to create borders for my layout! 'Trick or Treat' was used on the top border and 'Smell my feet!' was used on the bottom border. I love this stamp has so many cute stamps in it! (Click on the pictures to see them larger!)

Materials Used:
Patterned Paper - DCWV Ghosts & Goblins (Orange, Bats, and Ghosts), Lush (Black Dots)
Cardstock - Bazzill (Green), American Crafts (White...filled with black on the Imagine for frame)
Cricut Cartridges - Teresa Collins Sophisticated (Frame & Shadow), Straight from the Nest (Green blob!)

A clean, simple layout!

Sometimes, a simple approach is all you need to tell the story.

A couple strips of paper, a few cricut flowers (with brads for the centers)...easy, simple, done!

I have 2 sayings when it comes to scrapbooking.

#1 - I have more photos than time. (I gave up on the idea of getting caught up long ago. Now, I scrap what makes me happy!)

#2 - Done is better than perfect!
