Design Team Entry

Well, it's time for another chance to be on the My Pink Stamper design team. This is such an exciting opportunity for me as I have been following Robyn's blog for more than 2 years, I think. My Pink Stamper was the very first place I found to learn how use my Cricut when my husband bought it for me. If it weren't for Robin I would have had a $300.00 paperweight on my craft desk :)

The challenge is fairly simple : 

Make a card, scrapbook page, or other Cricut project with your favorite Cricut cartridge using the following colors.....

(other optional color of your choice)
My favorite cartridge right now is Kate's ABCs. I try to be a little different from the norm, so I chose to  make a tissue box cover. The directions can be found here.
I used all the colors in the challenge and a very hot pink for the 'other' color.

The recipe is as follows:

Cardstock ~ Stampin Up
Cricut Cartridge ~ Kate's ABCs
Embossing Folder ~ Cuttlebug Swiss Dots
Lots of Gel Pen doodling with a little bit of Stickles thrown in for good measure :)
Some buttons, flowers, rhinestones and brads from my  'collection'
Paper Doiley  from one of the craft stores that I sponged with Pink ink.
Ribbon from my stash
I seem to suffer from some sort of disease that makes me think my projects are never finished, that they need just one more something! If any of you have a suggestion on how to cure this, please let me know :)
There will be LOTS of other crafty bloggers submitting wonderful projects... and we have to wait until Saturday to find who Robyn chooses...Good Luck to us all :)



  1. This is SO beautiful! It would sure make any tissue box look like a fancy centerpiece! :) My cures for the One-more-thing disease are my 2 children, who are always in need of my attention when I get carried away with crafting. :) Good luck with the DT call!

  2. I love this! It would look fabulous in my craft room!! :) Good luck!!

  3. Love your project! You did an awesome job!

  4. I love your box!! I like the soft touch the doilies add to it! Good luck!
