Episode 1 - MPS Design Team Entry

Hello all!  I am sorry I have not been on my blog in awhile, but you know what the holidays do!  So here I am today trying for a very coveted position on My Pink Stampers Design Team!!!  I SO want this!!!!

You had to make a project using the following:
  • Cricut or Imagine
  • Favorite Cartridge
  • Colors:  Pink (of course!!), Green, Brown & optional color of your choice
We didn't have to as part of the requirements to be considered for the DT, but I wanted to do my first video.  Robyn was the person that made me want to make videos, so I found it fitting that I should make my first video for this purpose.  It is going to be a pretty rough video, but it is my first and I had fun making it.  Now I just need to edit and post!

For our entry we had to post a picture of our project and give the recipe.  Here are the pictures and recipe. 


All supplies are Stampin' Up unless indicated:

12X12 Pink Pirouette Textured Cardstock
11X11 Chocolate Chip/Pink Pirouette Polka Dot Cardstock (retired)
Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Pink Pirouette, Barely Banana (retired), Old Olive, Basic Black
Pink Pirouette, Old Olive & Bashful Blue Buttons
Target $1 Light Pink Adhesive Heart Rhinestone
13X13 Certainly Celery Satin Ribbon (retired)

Elephant from Birthday Bash Cricut Cartridge (pg 38) 3.75"
Circle and Scallop from Mini Monograms Cricut Cartridge :
Circle (pg 126) cut on Gypsy at W:  5.52 L:  7.82
Scallop (pg 129) cut on Gypsy at W: 6.80 L:  7.53

Thank you so much everyone!  I hope you enjoyed my project. I love this hobby.  It is really hard to put into words what this hobby does for me.  I love making projects for people and seeing their faces when they receive something you have been working on and they light up.  This seems to have turned from a simple hobby to a passion.  I know there are so many out there that feel the same.  I am honored to be considered among you many crafters.  I would be very honored to be part of this Design Team if chosen.   I will be working on the video and hope to have it up soon!
