Pink Power Blog Trade

Happy Tuesday everyone!  Today I have something special planned for you– I am posting my video and project on Pinky’s blog and she is posting hers on mine– and we are giving away prizes!!! So, read to find out more!

Good morning all you amazing crafters.
Pinky here, guest blogging for Pink Cricut today, and I have to say I am so very excited to be here.

If you don’t know me, I am Cristal Hobbs but everyone calls me PINKY because of my pink hair. I am a passionate, avid crafter who loves creating and sharing online and in the classroom.
I design for Provocraft (Cricut Circle Magazine) Imaginisce, Clear Scraps, and a few other companies. I am a freelance designer and teacher, in my spare time I teach all over Tennessee, Kentucky and Alabama.
I have 3 beautiful boys and 10 adorable chickens.
I love scrapbooking and altered arts, I love how scrapbooking and crafting brings out the artistic heart in your everyday crafter.

Ok enough about me!

Today is all about the PINK POWER!!

When I found the Pink Cricut blog I was so excited to see someone that shared the same pink passion for crafts, I knew right away we had to do a guest blog on each other’s blog.

So be sure to hop over to my blog and see what Sarah from Pink Cricut has to say and what she created!

It is no secret I love acrylic, and I am in a crazy acrylic sign making frenzy lately.

Here I took a, acrylic circle from Clear Scraps and I used some vintage lace, the Cottage Christmas Collection from Imaginisce, and I made a Kitchen Wall hanging for my kitchen.

I am all about tulle, vintage lace especially at Christmas time, and don’t you just love the clear snowflakes from Imaginisce? These details make it so much fun to play with paper.

Since Sarah and I BOTH love giveaways we decided it would not be a proper guest blog without some prizes.
All you have to do is FOLLOW both blogs, easy right? And leave a comment on each blog post. It will only take a few seconds, then you have a chance at one of these amazing prize packages!

Here are our blog sponsors
PLAID (Mod Podge)

Be sure to follow & comment on BOTH blogs.
You could win….a 50.00 Mod Podge package! (1 winner chosen randomly)
OR a Cottage Christmas KIT from Imaginisce!!!! (1 winner from each blog totaling 2 winners) Over 25.00 in Imaginisce supplies to make your Christmas scrapbooking or card making a success!

I hope you enjoyed the guest blog today, be sure to hop over to my blog and check out Sarah’s post!

  1. This is great what you and Cristal are doing. As I mentioned on Cristal’s (aka Pinky) blog, October is a perfect month for you two…’s PINK!!! It’s a special month for me as I have three friends who had survived breast cancer and it’s a good reminder for us women to take care of ourselves and try to find a cure for cancer and prevention!

    I love this Christmas sign……it’s is sooooo cute!!!!

  2. I love, love, love your Christmas decoration for your kitchen. The saying is so true, Christmas memories ARE made in the kitchen! I especially enjoy the little ones wanting to “help” with all the baking that goes on for Christmas. We just pull up a chair, tie on an apron of some sort and let them get as messy as they want. Those pictures are treasure tokens of “Christmas Memories in the Kitchen”. You are an inspiring crafter.

  3. What an adorable project! I love Imaginise products and you did such a great job with them! How fun to see you guest blog here – I’m off to follow YOUR blog! THank you!

  4. Seeing your projects makes me giddy inside. I am already getting excited to bake in my Kitchen this Christmas. My DD (4) and I started a tradition last year where we make spritz cookies and decorate them with sprinkles and package them up to take to the nursing home up the road from our house. The people there love to see my little girl and I feel like it is teaching her to care for others and a little mercy along the way! I LOVE your sign!!
