My Pink Stamper - Blog Hop


This blog hop begins at My Pink Stamper
If you are coming from Craft Junkie Too, then you are in the right place.

I am so excited to be on the My Pink Stamper Design Team. I just wanted to share a bit about myself before I share my project with you. My name is Angela. I have been married to my amazing husband for 6 years and we have 2 little princess'. My oldest loves making cards and crafting with me. I have my own Simple Creations business where I sell my handmade cards and other creations to local people I know. I recently sold some of my creations to a local boutique. I co-lead a scrapbooking group that meets once a month. My husband and I are Assistant Pastors at our church. I run our cafe for our young adult community. So I am already living out many of my dreams. Being on this design team is one of them.

I hope you enjoy this mail box and cute little valentine I made to go along with it.


The Mail Box was cut from Love Struck 2010 Cartridge at 11.5". I covered it with a pattern paper & attached the flag with a brad. Be sure to cover it & attach the brad before gluing together.
The card was also cut from Love Struck 2010 Cartridge.  I welded 2 hearts together on my gypsy at 3" each to create the white base of the card. The blackout & top layer of the card are from the 6th button on Love Struck 2010 Cartridge. I glued those together & popped it up to add some dimension.  The butterfly's are the base of button 5 on Live Simply Cartridge. They are cut at .5" each. I bent the wings up & used stickles on the torso. The sentiment, Something Special is from My Pink Stamper's Family & Friend's Stamp Set. Of all the stamps sets I have I use this one the most. This card turned out really small but I made it to fit inside the mail box. It is a beautiful card that can be made larger & given to someone to tell them how special they are.



From here hop to Kassidy's Blog. If you would like to join in our blog hop, start at the beginning & write down the key words from each blog to find out what the challenge is. There are 2 key words you will want to write down from my blog: MAKE A.
