Happy Sunday-I am LATE again! But I have been stamping! Yeah for me-sad for you if you have been waiting for an update! Sorry! But when I get on a roll I CANT stop! My time during the week isnt as FREE as I thought it would be! LOL! So I have to take advantage of Jason watching the kids so I can pump out the samples!

I have alot of cool stuff to share this week-including a gift bag tutorial. I am not posting the ornament today-sorry! Its just not gelling with my point of this particular post! Plus I have a product review to finish. Wait till you see that one-pretty cute idea.

Anyway I have some samples to share with Think Pink, and then a whole piece of info on stamps for a cause and what not!

Here is the first-We’re in this together


Do you not LOVE how I used the heart shaped tag from Making Memories? LOVE IT!! The image was totally perfect for that idea! I secured it using glue dots, folded in 1/2.

The jewels are from Alexa’s party! LOVING that bag of goodies.


cardstock-pretty in pink, basic gray, PT white, vellum cardstock

patterned paper- DCWV- not sure which collection. Random buy at a LSS.

Ink- copics, brillinace ink graphite black

ribbon by SU-pink taffeta, Making Memories tag

I made a banner strip from vellum cardstock. Cute huh?

This set is SO pink and black huh? Seems like most of us have been compelled to use the pretty combo with this set.

Well dont get stuck in a creative rut thinking its ONLY PINK! If you haven’t gotten it for that fact I will hopefully open your mind!

Kim @ MFT shared with me that a close friend of her’s just found out his wife was diagnosed with a rare Ovarian Cancer. Well, I had to make her a card. I “googled” the “color” for ovarian cancer and saw it is teal. Every cancer is represented by a color! Did you know that? Leukemia is orange. Anyway-so here is my card for her.

Not So Pink!

not so pink How can you not LOVE this card?

Now you can see that it can be used in support of ANY cause!


cardstock-basic black, taken with teal, PT white

ink-Copic Markers, graphite black brilliance ink

Punches- Martha Stewart flower border punch. Small and Large SU ovals

My Prima Sprites. Had to have a bling brad 😀

Ribbon of Support


This one was a simple one-the ribbon can slide out and be worn for a symbol of support! Again it can be done in ANY color to suit the cause!

A great ond easy one for mass production-minus the jewels!!


I know I have said this before but I will say AGAIN-there is NOTHING better than being able to use your HOBBY to make a difference!

I have been blessed by others through stamping, and hope I in turn have also blessed others with mine!

Many people are being touched by this horrible disease, and more and more stamp companies are stepping up and helping! I think they are realizing the impact this has on people, and the need for sets just for these issues, or to help support the causes. No amount of support is too small! If each person did a small part-it becomes HUGE!

Here are some recent sets that I am aware of-if you know links to more PLEASE share in the comments section!

Missy B Designs– Alexa’s Set- $12 This was the set created for my daughter Alexa, where 100% of proceeds benefit pediatric leukemia and lymphoma research! I am SO proud of that set, and all the money it has raised-thanks to many of you!!!

Gina K-Make A Wish set (and Autism Speaks). $26.95 for wood mount $21.95 unmounted. I was proud to be a part of the fabulous design team to help support a cause that my family directly benefited from. What an amazing cause. $7 from every set gets donated!

MFT Stamps– Kim recently released Think Pink. Its a super set that 50% of retail proceeds get donated to Breast Cancer Research!

Now YOU can help too!

As I posted before Lizzie Anne is having a card contest! Details ——> HERE All you have to do is send a card using LA sets and you could win! BEST part-everyone wins, because ALL entries get sent to Cards for Cancer!

In honor of the contest, I will start posting tomorrow-a daily sample with my Lizzie Anne sets! And throw in some other samples as well 😀

Also lets not let there be only one month (October) or one time of year (usually Christmas) to think of helping others! Send a card to a family in need or consider donating stamped cards or items to  a cause YOU believe in or have been personally affected by. Or donate your time if you can.

Trust me-you dont realize how all these little gestures affect families till its YOU on the receiving end! I hope to God you never have to know.

I believe Alexa’s Cancer had a deeper purpose. For me to not be selfish, but do what I can to reach out and help other people in the smallest ways. I have learned SO MUCH since her journey. Things I never would have otherwise. It put our family on a whole new path. Not always an easier one, but we are grateful nonetheless for what we do have.

If you have any causes you participate in or have been touched by, please feel free to comment! I LOVE hearing about what others are doing! It is so heart warming and reminds me that there are more GOOD people in the world than NOT.
