It's that time of year again when Robyn puts out her Design Team call and all of us crafters get to work. Robyn's instructions are to create a project using the colors, green, brown, orange, and turquoise.
Unfortunately, I don't have any of Robyn's stamp sets (*gasp*, I know, I'm not sure why. I want them so badly I can't stand it.) So, I began going through my stamp collection and rediscovered my 40:31 Creations Say Something set. I've been dying to use this sentiment on a project (I'm a coffee fiend). Then, using http://www.mycutsearch.com/, I searched Cricut images for a coffee cup. Using my Gypsy, I cut this image at 3 1/4" from the Graphically Speaking Cartridge. I used Basic Grey's Sweet Threads, Stampin' Up cardstock, and for the steam, velum from my stash.
I used my Martha Steward Punch-around the paper to create a lace doily. I finished by adding stitching with my Gelly Roll pen.
I can't believe it's only been a year since I found Robyn's videos and http://www.mypinkstamper.com/. If it weren't for Robyn there's no way I would be typing on this blog today. She is the reason I got back into crafting and found a piece of myself I didn't even know was missing. Unfortunately, I'm not surrounded by people who understand my obsession with crafting, so Robyn's introduction to the online "support group" was exactly what I needed. Being on her design team would be a dream come true. Thanks Robyn, for everything you've given me.
