Believe in Hope

Welcome to the Studio!

So glad you stopped by.  The Link Up For Pink Linky Party is still going on, so be sure to hop over there and see all the wonderful cards and projects and leave some love.  But, if you want a chance to win some fabby prizes, you have to link your pink card up.  It's easy and fun!

My card for today is still in the vintage, shabby chic vein.  I'm just so totally loving that style right now!  And since it's for LUFP, it's got to have a lot of pink.

I wanted a different style of embellishment, so I decided to make my own.  For the feathers, I used a small circle punch and put Aleene's Tacky Glue on it and stuck my feathers to the top half of the circle.  The beige feathers were actually cut from a larger feather.  It was too big to fit on my card;)  After I had them all stuck down, I added a bit more tacky glue and then folded the circle in half and kind of sandwiched all the feathers so they wouldn't slip out.  I then added a glue dot to the paper half circle and tucked it behind by two-colored quadruple bow along with some pretty little stickpins.  The pearl and rhinestone one I made myself from my bead/pin stash.  The awareness ribbon pin is from my friend Yolie, our fearless leader at Link Up For Pink.  I wanted it to have a bit more wow factor, so I used Liquid Pearls on it.  I'm totally tickled pink with the way my card turned out;)

The inside of my card is very simple, but has a strong sentiment.  For those of you who are fighting this battle, all our prayers, love, and hugs are with you.  Be Strong!  You're not alone!

Vintage Hope

Welcome to the Studio!

If you're visiting from Link Up For Pink, thanks so much for stopping by!

I've been in a bit of a shabby chic mood lately...when I have mojo, of course, and can actually create something worth sharing;)  I've been having some of "those days" lately where everything hurts or my brain isn't working or the only thing I feel like doing is sleep.  Luckily, I'm coming out of my personal funk and I'm getting my "shab" on.  This is the card I created for Link Up For Pink.  If you haven't heard of them, it's a wonderful group of ladies (of which I'm one) and we use our crafting for Breast Cancer Awareness.  We also accept donations for Relay For Life (there's a button on the sidebar.)

I'm still head over heels for the Heidi Swapp Sugar Chic paper pack.  I just can't quit using it.  And I adore the flower trim from Stampin Up.  The "Hope" stamp and frame are from Pink By Design.  And the cute, tiny vellum envelope is from DCWV.  I also used Stampin Up inks in Strawberry Slush and Brown Sugar and Close To My Heart ink in Cotton Candy.  The little burlap flower and the newsprint pattern paper is Paper Studio and the pink flower is Prima.  The bling is from my stash.  The embossing folder used on the pink strip at the top is from Cuttlebug.
Don't forget to get your project linked up over at Link Up For Pink.  We have LOTS of awesome prizes and an important message to share!

Until next time, Scrap Sassy!

Celebrate Today!

Welcome to the Kick-off of the Link Up For Pink Event!
I'm so glad you're joining us today!  There are lots of sponsors, prizes, friendly reminders and awareness!  Together we can kick cancer's butt!
Here is my first project for the Link Up For Pink event.  I'll have more over the next two weeks, so be sure to visit my blog and the Link Up For Pink site.

Each day is a gift from God, so shouldn't we get up every morning ready to Celebrate!?!  For my card, the pretty flower paper is from Heidi Swapp's Sugar Chic paper pack.  I just LOVE the pink and aqua.  And the new Stampin Up in color, Coastal Cabana, is a perfect match.
Now, about those prizes...
We have many generous sponsors this year and there are LOTS of cool things to win.  How do you win?  Just enter a project in our link up party.  Go to Link Up For Pink for all the details.  I can't wait to see all the awesome and beautiful creations!
