Hoping For a Cure


Hi my friends, here's another "Hope" card for Link Up for Pink. I think we all hope and believe that a cure is on its way soon, so here is the card I have created for you. I hope you like it.

I used Martha Stewart's punch for the edge of the card front and corners of the butterfly paper piecing. The patterned paper is from a 6x6 pack of  EP paper ( have lost the pack since using it, lol, so can't tell you the name of the pack) and the cardstock is Melon Mambo from Stampin' Up and the stamped images and sentiment are from Stampin' Up "Hope and Strength" stamp set.
Now for some really fantastic news!!!!! Link Up For Pink Challenge #8 is starting on December 27th at midnight PST. The theme is "Anything Goes" with a "Touch of Pink."

Our super fantastic sponsor is Sassy Studio Designs and the prize is winner's choice of 4 images. How cool is that? You really need to check out their shop for some of the cutest images ever!!!! Something for everyone for anything you're creating.

So with all that being said,

Start Scrappin' to make it Happin"

"YOU" could be the next winner of a fabulous prize!!

Merry Christmas

I'd like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas!!!

I'm sharing a Christmas card I made with a tea bag fold. If you'd like to learn how to do this there is an awesome tutorial here.

I used patterned paper from Holly Jolly by Cosmo Cricket for the background and a scrap from my stash of My Minds Eye paper for the tree. I added some glitter glue to the edges of the tree, wound some tinsel trim in and out and topped it with a snowflake star sticker.

Supplies used:  card stock - white, pink; patterned papers in Holly Jolly by Cosmo Cricket and Wild Asparagus by My Minds Eye; Silhouette cut files; stamp - Michaels; ink -  silver by ColorBox; snowflake star - JoLee's; Clear Dazzle glitter glue by Hero Arts; tinsel trim - my stash; Pop Dots.

Hope Ribbon


Hi, sorry it's been a while since I posted to Link Up for Pink, but my daughter and I have been moving the scrap room from the second floor to the downstairs area. Oh, what a job!!! I feel like they should call someone from the "Hoarder" to see what we have accumulated. And guess what? We still buy more!! LOL Well, I think now that we can see and we know what we have we can come to a halt on purchasing anything else. ; ) Well..... for a while anyway. LOL

Well, here is my card and I hope you like it.

The lighting is not the best, but we haven't moved everything down, so things won't look the best until we get completely settled in.

The paper I used is from Mambi, a breast care awareness pack, and the stamp is from Pink by Design. The ribbon is from my stash.

Pink Christmas Tags

Esther here, and for today I'd like to share some "pink" Christmas tags I created.

I chose to use the same patterned paper, but come up with three totally different tags.

For the large snowflake tag, I traced the tag on the patterned paper, cut it out and then cut it at an angle. After attaching it to the tag I zig zag stitched with my sewing machine. Then just glued my large, glittery snowflake towards the bottom.

For the next tag I again traced the tag on to the patterned paper and cut it to fit the top portion of the tag.  I chose some card stock to match the dark pink in the pattern paper, cut a small strip of it, border punched it, attached it under the patterned paper then stitched across the top with my sewing machine and embellished it with a few pearls. I stitched around the bottom of the tag, punched a heart in one corner and attached a snowflake sticker in the other.

For the last tag I put the bottom of my tag, centered in my border punch, and just punched one time so that it would stay intact. Then I took a small piece of the patterned paper and border punched it, glued it above the punched out portion of the tag and zig zag stitched across it. I used Stickles to put some random snow flakes on the tag. I cut a tree out with the reverse side of the patterned paper, attached it to the tag with Pop Dots and topped it with a snowflake sticker.

Supplies used: tags - Staples; patterned paper - Silly Chilly in Jolly By Golly by Cosmo Cricket; large snowflake - Scrapbook Studios; card stock - dark pink; pearls - Kaiser craft; border punch - EK Success; small heart punch - my stash; snowflake sticker - Sandylion Essentials; Diamond Stickles; border punch - Fiskars; small snowflake sticker - Sandylion Essentials; Pop Dots; sewing machine.
