It's Pink Friday! Pink Cricut Design Team Day!

Hi Everybody!
It's Pink By Design Day!!!!!!!!!!! This time Sarah wanted us to create something other than a card.  I was up for the challenge!  I decided to make a frame.  With four kids, I always have plenty of pictures I need to display.  The OUR KIDS stamp set was perfect for this!  Oh, and I will be putting my kids pictures instead of the Cricut heads (although the Cricuts are cute too, but not as cute as my kids!!).  So here's how it turned out:

  • Pink By Design OUR KIDS stamp set
  • Pink By Design LARGE POLKA background stamp
  • buttons from my stash
  • orange twine from my stash
  • $1 frame from the Dollar Tree
  • Peachy Keen Boy Mates Assortment set

*I used the Large Polka background stamp in black to create some cute texture, and kept it in a neutral color so its easy to change the accent colors.

*I also used the stamps to create a background mat for the pictures/shapes. 
*I used white ink so you could still see them, but it wouldn't take away from the picture. 

*I used Post It Craft paper for the sentiments so that I can change the sentiment for the occassion. 
*This idea would also work awsome for graduation pictures and the HAT'S OFF graduation set from Pink By Design!

There ya go!  I hope you like it.  Can you believe this project only cost me $1?  I just had to buy the frame, and everything else I had in my stash.  So if you get these stamp sets, imagine how many presents you could make!  I am all about saving money, and homemade presents!  You could also cut the picture frame from the Happy Hauntings cartridge, and stamp a sentiment on that!  Endless ideas :o)  TFL, and don't forget to head on over to Pink Cricut to see what the rest of the amazing design team has created!!
