Pink Saturday

ETA: I received a GSS honorable mention for this project yesterday 8/19 from Nicole Heady. It is very exciting to receive another one.

It is time for Pink Saturday again. I was finally able to get my stamp area all cleaned up this week and I can see my desk again. It took days to get it done but was definitley worth all the work in the end. I never want it to get that bad again. I will be sharing before and after pictures of it with you soon but today I am sharing a project with you that I have been wanting to make for awhile now and finally got done.
Introducing the little Pink Retro Oven Box When you open the door
inside you will find this

A knitted cupcake pincushion.

I started by using Lauren Meaders Bun in the oven Timeless Template and PTI Sweet Blush cardstock. I also used Sliver shimmer Cardstock for the front of the door, the oven handles and burners. Next I used a stamp from the Father Knows Best stamp set on the silver burners. For the knobs I used large silver brads and the clock was stamped and cut out using a small pocket watch stamp I had from Lasting Impressions with Panache. To finish off the sides of the oven I attached sliver shimmer sheets that I embossed with the Cuttlebug diamond embossing folder.
I knitted the cupcake pincushion using this pattern. The flower on the top is the single crochet flower I shared with you a few weeks ago.
I am really happy with how this came out. I hope you like it too. I have put it up for sale in my Etsy shop if anyone is interested in buying it. That's all for now. Make sure you stop by Beverly's blog to see the other people that are participating today. I hope to get my monthly technique video done this afternoon too so check back on Tuesday for that. In the meantime I hope you have a great Pink Saturday and as always thanks for stopping by.

What a sweet Pink Saturday blog post! Sadly, every Saturday for the past few weeks it has been raining in northern Michigan. So, this day always brings a little sunshine my way. Thanks so much for the treat!

♥Wishing you and yours a wonderful weekend♥
