Another money saving tip!

I'm back with another money saving tip!  This is an old trick I found quite some time ago (that I once shared on my old blog).  In case some of you haven't seen or heard of this, I decided to share it with you today.  I'm not sure where I found it in my online travels, but it's a great idea!

We all know how expensive adhesive can be!  This will allow you to make your own homemade dots of glue.  All you will need is a bottle of "Aleene's Tack It Over and Over", and an old empty sticker sheet from your stash. Some people have tried using wax paper but apparently, it will NOT work for this purpose.


Each bottle retails for less than $5 and will make TONS of dots! The best part about this is you can make yours any size you like. Maybe even try making some lines to adhere your favorite ribbon to your layouts!


Apply the glue to your sticker sheet as shown. (Make sure you use the glossy side of your sticker sheet so that the glue dots will peel off easier later.) Allow your dots to dry overnight. The dots will turn clear when they are ready to use.


 Hope you enjoyed this tip. Be on the lookout for some more great ideas in the near future!

Some news to share...

Hi Everyone!  In case you haven't had a chance to visit the My Pink Stamper blog lately,  Robyn  has shared some news.  In order to spend more time with her family, she has made the decision to step down from the business part.  So, although she will continue in the blogging world - all My Pink Stamper products will be retired once her retailers sell out.

You can read more about it here:

Thank you Robyn for allowing me to be part of this amazing journey.  And thanks to our Head Designer, Maria for all her hard work on our behalf. To our entire team:  It has been an honor to work with all of you - and such a blessing to call you my friends.

It's been awhile since I've had a giveaway, so how about a chance to win an awesome My Pink Stamper set?  Lunchbox Thoughts is PERFECT for your back to school projects!

  Just leave a comment with a way for me to contact you if you win. :)

Hugs & Happy Crafting!

Money saving tip!

What does a bowl of hot water and a small tube of bb's have in common?  Together they will unclog your bottles of Glimmer Mist!


Here is a wonderful video I found in my online travels.  I hope you enjoy it.  I tried it out and it works like a charm!! (The only thing I did differently was instead of holding each nozzle under a running faucet, I chose instead to use a bowl of hot water.)

Note:  It may be a good idea to use an old bowl for this purpose, as my water did turn color.
**Another suggestion I found online was to use a can of compressed air.  I tried this method first and it did not work for me. **

Have a moo-velous day!

Well, I hate to admit it, but it seems that summer is officially over.  Rejean (my husband) and I just got back from a  nice vacation in Savannah.  I will share some of that with you soon!  But, it's been awhile since I've shared a project with you.  So, that's on my to-do list for today.

With the start of the new school year, I thought I would share a cute gift idea for that favorite teacher, student, or friend! 

While grocery shopping one day, I found this cute pink milk carton at Walmart.  It has yummy strawberry milkshake Whoppers inside. 

To decorate, I used the My Pink Stamper Moo-ey Doodles set.  I think it turned out really cute. 
Just a simple project to wish someone a very happy day. (or in this case, a "moo-velous" one!)


A special thanks to my friend Dana for her input on this project.  Her and I sat together during our last crop and she was so sweet to offer me her opinion whenever needed.  So, thanks Dana! :)

Back again! :)

Just putting back a couple of cards which I had previously removed for publication.  Both of these were featured in the May 2012 issue of Cricut Magazine.

Thanks for letting me share.  But most of all, thank you for taking the time to always comment on my projects and for being so supportive of my work.  It means so much to me.  Love and hugs to all of you, my crafting friends!
