Pink by design - Shop-a-holic


As you may have read Mandy is super busy with her new job, and asked myself and a few of her other scrappy friends to take over her blog until she can get back to being crafty.

Today is Pink by design - design team submission day.  Yippee!  Part of the challenge was to use this fabulous paper Sarah had 3m sent to everyone on the design team call  Post-it Craft.  The entire back side of this paper is similar to what is on the 'sticky' part a post it note.  I am loving using this in the Cricut!!! It cuts perfectly.

This is going to be post that is heavy on pictures...and light on words.  I don't have the same 'way with words' that Mandy does.

Here you can see the back side of  3m's new Post-it Craft paper:

I am a huge fan of Cricut Design Studio.  I get all my cuts arranged on the screen, lay my papers down to match, and one run through the cricut...and I am done.  (the orange colored paper is the front side of the post-it paper)

I cut this shape from Storybook cartridge at 4 inches. 

 Peeled up the paper off the adhesive backing..

 I decided to use this cut as a mask. You can see in the picture below I put the mask on top of the red cardstock and sprayed it with black Maya Mist from Maya Road. Once it was dry I peeled up the mask leaving the beautiful design you will see on the card below.

 Here is the finished card.  It is a 'tall' card measuring 9"x4", and will fit in a letter size envelope.  I used the stamp "Well behaved women rarely make history" stamp from the Pink by design Shop-a-holic set.  Such a fun girlie set!!!

 A few more pictures that show off all the details of this card -

Accessories used -
Satin ribbon, tulle, bling, black & pearl glimmer mists, Swiss dots CB folder.
