Update and a Pinned Pretty

Hi everyone and Happy Monday!!  Hope you all are enjoying some beautiful Spring weather!!   It was gorgeous here this weekend!  Of course, I am still on bed rest, but we did open the windows to let some fresh air and sunshine in!  Sunshine is always good for the soul!

A quick update:  Continued bed rest, and now we are going into the doctor’s office 3x a week, and just going day by day.  I’ve always had healthy pregnancies- so, I am a little stressed out about the complications, but I know we are going to be okay.  My preeclampsia symptoms are not getting worse but they are not getting better.  My platelet count has gone up, thankfully.   However, during my latest non-stress-test baby was not as reactive as doctor would have liked.  So, like I said we are going day by day- and welcome any prayers!

I know I didn’t post last week, but I wanted to get some posts up this week…since I am not allowed to craft really. And Mr. Pink has had to use ‘tough love’ in denying to bring up my sewing machine or anything… I thought it would be fun to show some of my highly pinned projects from pinterest.   A PINNED PRETTY!

I am not promising I will post every day this week–but, I will get some up! 🙂


Here’s one of my PINNED posts:


Today- I wanted to try out another awesome feature about the Cameo- which is that it is compatible with Amy Chomas adjustable pen holders– It’s basically a pen holder that fits in place of the blade- and allows your cameo to draw, write, sketch and more with all kinds of pens, markers, and more.

For today’s project I actually used a Ranger Perfect Pen Bullet Tip that you can use with Perfect Pearls and it also acts as an embossing ink for embossing powders.

I put the pen in the holder- loaded it into the Cameo- and then when I sent the project to the Cameo- I used the pen option instead of the blade option. 🙂

The typewriter was drawn by the Cameo, and can be found as a sketch inside the Silhouette store- After the Cameo was done drawing, I sprinkled red embossing powder over the image and then used a heat gun to set the embossing powder.

It gave the scrapbooking page an embossed look, that you see on so many papers nowadays!

I added a piece of paper, slightly curled- with the stamped sentiment Just my Type from the Pink by Design stamp set Timeless Pieces– I wanted it to look as if the paper was coming out of the typewriter.

I then added some fun ribbon to the bottom, ruffling the red and white ribbon as I adhered it to the page.

The ps…i love you and the typed paper are both from the Echo Park Yours Truly collection. To give the typed paper a little more color I sprayed it with glimmer mist in a dark pink and purple color.
I also used  a few sentiments Pink by Design’s My Type stamp set along the side of the picture.
Thanks everyone and tomorrow I will try to post our link up party again!! 🙂
