My Pink Stamper Pink-alicious Blog Hop

Welcome to Simple Creation's and My Pink Stamper's Pink-alicious Blog Hop. If you came from June then you are right on track. If you are just begining the hop, then go to to start at the beginning.

Hi, I'm Angela.  I want to start off sharing a bit about myself so you can get to know me. I love to craft and do anything with my hands. I get to stay home with our two little girls. They keep me very busy so I try to craft during nap time or when I get a chance. My four year old crafts with me and knows how to use every tool.

God is a huge part of my life. My husband and I are pastors at an amazing church. I am very involved with the Nursery, Young Adults, Worship Team and run our Young Adult Cafe. So even though I "stay home" life is always busy, but I love what I do.

I love to craft with my Gypsy, Cricut Expression, Cuttlebug, Stamps, & Copic Markers. My favorite paper line is Core'dinations because it cuts so well on the Cricut and then I can sand it to accent another color. I love the quality of My Pink Stamper Stamps. They stamp so well & work with both Scrapbooking & Card Making. I am honored to be on this design team for a second term and look forward to getting to know you more. I love reading all your comments.

Cuttlebug Embossing Folder: Seeing Spots

School House Card

I made this card using My Pink Stamper's New - Font-abulous

This is a great versatile stamp set. When you need to put a name or stamp a word that you don't have, use this stamp set. It stamps amazing. It is the best quality Alphabet stamp set that I have used and it stamps so bold & clear. This stamp set will be great for scrapbook pages. I will use it for titles or names of people on the page. 
To stamp the ABC's on this card, I lined them up on my clear block & decided how many letters I need to fit on each side of my yellow paper. I stamped 1 side at a time.

Supplies & Instructions
Makin' the Grade Cricut Cartridge
School House cut at 2.50"
Paper: DCWV the Grade School Stack
Ink: Stazon - Jet Black
