My Pink Stamper Challenge

Robyn invited me to join her challenge this week. We were to use Pink, Brown, Green and Orange. We had just gotten out family pictures back and I thought that these colors and pictures would go perfectly together! 

Wall Cork Board

I made this video at the beginning of the year and had it on my other blog but I have had a few of you ask about it so I thought I would repost it for you. Hope you are all having a great day! This was the first video I did, Yikes! I have learned a few things since then.

Rock Star

I wanted to make something for a few ladies in my church because I wanted to let them know I was thinking about them.
I found the cute little tins in the dollar section at my local Target, got some sweets to put inside and went home to make some cards to go with them! It ended up being slightly patriotic themed but I like how they turned out!

Bird-day Card

My Husband called me from work to remind me of one of his employees birthday, so this is what I quickly came up with. I used my gypsy to make this bird into a card and then I made an envelope to match! I was in such a hurry I couldn't do a video on it but I have it on my list to do!! I used my Straight from the Nest cartridge & my gypsy to cut the bird out at 5 inches. Stampin' Up cardstock in Chocolate Chip, Really Rust, Rich Razzleberry and Melon Mambo and of course Tweetie Hoo Stamps by My Pink Stamper!

A Cute Father's Day Idea

A friend that I work with at my church had the supplies all prepared for out Young Woman that we work with to be able to put these "Superhero" packages together and give to their dad's for Father's Day! I thought that it was such a cute idea and wanted to share it with you! 
I don't have a picture of this but there was also a card that the girls could sign, it had a little superhero picture and said, ".... because at one time or another, every child truly believes that their dad really is a superhero."

I made this card when we were stuck inside because of all the rain and flooding! I always make at least 2 cards when I make a card because I am trying to build up a stock of cards that I can grab when I am in a hurry! Robyn ended up using them for some thank you cards. Looks like I will need to make some more!

The Cinch Review


I just used the Cinch to help Robyn's daughter make a father's day present. Here is what I thought!

* Ability to choose which holes to punch. Result=Like
* Threading station (that is what I am calling it) An area to place your wire and thread your paper onto the wire. Result= LIke.
I don't really feel like this helps make it easier or faster than just doing it by hand but still a nice little bonus feature.
* Straightness of punches when multi punching. Result= Dislike. I had a problem getting my punches to line up when I had to move my paper to punch again because of the length of my project. If my project had only been only 6 inches then my holes would have lined up just fine.
* Cinching the O wire. Result= Dislike. I followed the instructions to adjust for the size of my wire but I had few problems. 1st I could not get the machine to adjust. 2nd the machine only goes down to 3/4 inch and my wire was 1/2 inch. So between the two of those problems I could not get my o wire closed and I ended up having to use the Bind-it-all to finish the job.

I must put that I did not watch any tutorials or read any other instructions other than the ones on the machine itself.
I hope this helps anyone that it trying to decide between the two machines.
I will be sticking with my BInd-it-all, but am thankful for the chance that I had to use the Cinch.
