Two Pink Peas Tuesday's Tool Of The Week...




So for today's Two Pink Peas Tuesday's Tool Of The Week
I am picking my favorite stamps which is of course
Peach Keen Stamps!!!

These 2 sets I have along with many other sets but I wanted to share them with you all. I know that many of you own Peachy Keen Stamps but some have never purchased a set.
Let me tell you that PKS are one of the
BEST made, BEST quality and we cannot forget how
absolutely adorable they all are.
I wanted to also add that they are having Blog Hop on June 3rd and New Releases are coming up soon. I cannot wait to see what they are!! I am super excited to see them! I am sure that I will be first in line to order them..lol.



So there you have it, I think that this is a great pick for this Tuesday. Especially since they are coming out with new releases. If you get a chance to visit Peachy Keen Stamps and you place an order, could you please just let them know that Terri of Two Pink Peas sent you? I have always said before that I do not get anything in return but I love to support companies that I love and adore and want those companies to know how much I support them. PKS is one of those amazing companies that you just cannot beat!!

Have a fabulous night!! ~Terri

Cutting & Settings Guide For Your Favorite Material Using The Cricut...

Lately I have noticed that alot of my visitors have been searching for cutting guides and what is the best blade depth, pressure setting, speed and so on when cutting certain materials. So I did some research and found this little cutting guide and it was posted on the Cricut Chirp. I hope this helps those of you who are needing some assistance when cutting certain materials.

The following was posted on the Cricut Chip on 02.23.10:Settings guide for favorite materials



Scrapbook Paper and Cardstock - Standard Blade Machine Settings: Speed 2 (Low), Pressure 5 (High), Blade Depth 5, Multi Cut 1



Bazzill, textured paper/cardstock - Standard Blade Machine Settings: Speed 1 (Min), Pressure 5 (Max), Blade Depth 6, Multi Cut 1



Fabric (0.023"/0.58mm thick) - Deep Blade Machine Settings: Speed 3 (Med), Pressure 4 (High), Blade Depth 5, Multi Cut 1 
Note: Use a thin iron-on interfacing with the fabric, set the iron at its highest temperature setting. Apply direct heat and pressure to flocking for approximately 30 seconds. Peel protective liner when cool. Wash and dry garment inside out.


Magnet (0.035"/0.080mm thick) - Deep Blade Machine Settings: Speed 2 (Med), Pressure 5 (Max), Blade Depth 6, Multi Cut 4


Stencil (0.0155"/0.40mm thick) - Standard Blade Machine Settings: Speed 2 (Med), Pressure 5 (Max), Blade Depth 6, Multi Cut 2 
Note: Adhesive is repositionable. Replace liner to protect adhesive during storage.

Chipboard (0.059"/1.50mm thick) - Deep Blade Machine Settings: Speed 3 (Med), Pressure 4 (High), Blade Depth 6, Multi Cut 5 
Note: A fresh mat is needed to hold material. Small pieces of chipboard may require tape to stay in place.

Emboss (0.0160"/0.41mm thick) - Standard Blade Machine Settings: Speed 3 (Med), Pressure 5 (Max), Blade Depth 6, Multi Cut 2



Stamp (0.0415"/1.05mm thick) - Deep Blade Machine Settings: Speed 3 (Med), Pressure 4 (High), Blade Depth 5, Multi Cut 1 
Note: Use a fresh mat to keep material firmly in place.


Also, while I am posting this I wanted to address the new Cricut Craft Room. I tried and tried to gain access to the CCR but was unable to even after downloading the software. I did some research and found out that only a select few are able to use the beta version and they will slowly send out invitations via email when we will be able to gain access. I am really excited to try it out and see how it will work.

Anyhow, I hope that this cutting guide will help those who have been looking for some kind of cutting guide. I know that this does not include every type of material that you can cut using the Cricut but it covers the most basic. Hope you all are having a great weekend! ~Terri

Two Pink Peas Tuesday's Tool Of The Week...

Hi guys!! For this Two Pink Peas Tuesday's Tool Of The Week (say that 5 times in a row fast..lol) I decided to chose the Cricut GoBe. I wanted to pick something different and something that not everyone has heard of or has used before. The GoBe is a portable battery powered charging station and power hub.  It's great to use with your Cricut. You can actually use it the GoBe to power other items as well, like small appliances, lamps, computers, pda's, radios, cell phones, etc. This battery pack allows you to take your Cricut machines anywhere you wish and not have to worry about finding an power outlet. Imagine taking this to scrapbooking or card making get togethers, camping or anywhere else. With the GoBe you have the freedom of using your Cricut machines anywhere. There is also a GoBe Briefcase available too. It's not necessarily something that everyone would need, but if you do ever need power when none is available ... this tool is sure handy to have. The Solar Briefcase is a briefcase type design that opens up to reveal solar panels that charge in the sun. It is a portable recharging station for the GoBe and extends the life of the GoBe's power. You can find this online in many places. I hope you all enjoy seeing the tools that I pick out each and every Tuesday.

On to me, I feel bad that I have not posted very much lately. I have been busy with our house selling and building and then I decided that I needed to take some "me" time. With things being so crazy it was so nice to just relax and not have to worry about anything for a few days. We are pretty sure that we have our new house plans all done. My Two Pink Peas Room is going to be so amazing. It is actually a bonus room off of my master bedroom. I can't wait to get in there and start decorating it and get back to making cards and scrapbook pages. Once our house is done I will be posting tons and tons of pictures of our whole house but more importantly my Two Pink Peas Room. Lately I have been looking online for inspiration and decorating ideas. It is going to be a seriously amazing creative space just for me and I am so excited for that. Thanks for visiting my blog and as always I love to read your comments or suggestions. Take care and talk to you all soon.. ~Terri

For the set of 4 they cost $39.95 plus shipping of $ 6.21
The item number is 100-826.

Sorry That I Have Not Posted In Over A Week...

Things have been crazy around my house lately and that is why I have not been able to post lately. So I thought that I would just give you all a quick update as to what has been going on with me.

First of all Mother's Day was amazing, as usual!! My sweet daughter Hallie made me a card with a homemade cd with some pictures of cards that I made and some other pictures on it. It was really really sweet. I will post a picture of that soon. Maybe even tomorrow. Then I got to order a new Coach purse. Coach is my favorite handbag brand and although I have alot of them I really needed a new one so I got that. You can never ever have to many handbags, right?? At least I can't!! :o) LOL Then I got my favorite...Chinese food, which was so yummy!! Oh, how can I forget? I also got some new crafting supplies which I will post a picture of those soon too. I got a few new cartridges, new paper and some other random things that I needed. Well, not really needed but wanted..lol.  I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day, even those of you who are not mommy's.. I hope you at least got to spend time with your Mother. What a special day to honor your Mother!

We have been crazy busy with our house. Lately we have been getting alot of interest and at the same time we are working on the house that we are building. My Two Pink Peas Craft Room is going to be a bit bigger then we thought. My husband Den rearranged some of the space and it will pretty much be the size of a normal bedroom. I am really excited about that. We are just finalizing the final details of the floor plan. It is alot harder then I thought it was going to be. Fun but very tedious!

When we move in I will be getting both the Imagine and probably the CE2 also. I don't want to get them right now because I have not been able to make cards and stuff like I want to with our house on the market. We never know day to day if someone wants to come see our house so everything is put up. Plus, I really don't want to get them and have them sit in the boxes for 5 or 6 months and then pull them out to use them and have something be wrong with them. That would not be good. So that is why I am waiting.

Also, I have about 4 or 5 brand new, never linked to Gypsy Cricut Cartridges that I am going to put up for sale, some are Imagine and I thought I would give you all first dibs if you are interested. In the next coming days I will make a post about what I have and how much and if you are interested in them just let me know and we will work something out. I can tell you that 1 is the Cars Decals Cartridge, then I have the Audrey Cricut Imagine Cartridge, Snapshot Everyday Cricut Imagine, Speaking Of Fall and Cricut Office. That is all I can think of off the top of my head. I might have more but will have to look and see. But I will post the details in the next few days for you all. The prices will be really great and lower the usual. So more to come about that later.

I hope all is going well with all of you. Although I have been busy I am still visiting alot of your blogs to see what you all have been up to. Hopefully things will settle down and I will be able to pull my supplies out and do some creating.
It is a chore to pull it all out but worth it. I miss being able to make cards anytime I wish! But once we move into our new house I will be creating almost daily, which is exciting to me.
Gonna run and head to bed..it is 6 am I have to get up early because we have a few appointments tomorrow.
Have a great day everyone!
Thanks for stopping by Two Pink Peas!! ~Terri

Everyday Pop-Up Cards Cricut Cartridge...

In the next few days I will be making a few new cards using my new Everyday Pop-Up Cards Cricut Cartridge. I am really excited to dig in and get started. If you have not got this cartridge yet I would HIGHLY recommend getting it. When I looked through the booklet I could NOT believe how many images, phrases and pop up's that this cartridge contained.
If you have not seen it here is a picture of some of the images on this cartridge...



Also, Cricut Facebook page shows some of the pop-up images so you can see what they look like. You can find that here.. http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10150159468611434.296466.299457271433 If you are not a follower of the Cricut facebook page please become one and if you could PLEASE just let them know that Terri of Two Pink Peas sent you..that would be amazing. Once again I do not receive anything for you letting them know that I sent you. It's just so nice that they know that they are getting lots of support and referrals from fellow crafters who love their products.

Before I go I just wanted to say that when I first looked at this cartridge booklet it looked a bit tricky to me but I will be making video tutorials on how to use this cartridge in detail so you all will be able to use it and navigate through it much better. I am sure that it is not as hard as it may look or seem.
Oh and last thing.. this cartridge comes with 90 Cricut Reward Points.

Once again, thanks for visiting Two Pink Peas..
I will talk to you all very soon! ~Terri

Last Call To Enter Into The Custom Stamp Giveaway...


I just wanted to call a "Last Call" to enter in the Custom Stamp giveaway by Skip The Stamp Man.. and he sells primarily on Ebay. You can view and purchase his items on Ebay by going to http://stores.ebay.com/The-Worms-Pajamas . His store is called The Worms Pajamas. He also sells alot of teachers stamps so if you are a teacher and need special stamps or other items this would be a great place to look.

I wanted to again just say how far out of the way Skip went for me to make exactly what I wanted and needed. I wanted a special font and he did not have it. So Skip actually went and downloaded it just for me so he could make the stamp in the font that I wanted. How amazing is that?? My Two Pink Peas stamp is just so beautiful and looks just as good if not better then any stamp that you would get at a craft store. I was shocked and pleasantly surprised! I will be a life long customer of Skip's...this is a guarantee!! For a very long time I have been looking for stamp with my son Casey and my daughter Hallie's name on it but have never ever found one. They have Hailey or Hayley but never Hallie and never Casey. So I am going to get both of them one. My daughter's stamp will say her first and middle name..Hallie Bleu. Hallie is just starting to collect her own card and scrapbooking supplies and this would be such a great stamp for her to own. And just the name Casey for my son Casey.

If you all have a blog you can have Skip make a stamp with your blog name or whatever you want. I paid under $7.00 for it.. can you even believe that?? What an AMAZING deal!!

To enter in this giveaway just leave a comment right here and I will add these comments to my other comments.
I would really appreciate you becoming a follower of my blog but it is not necessary at all. 

I once again want to thank Skip "The Stamp Man" at The Worms Pajamas on Ebay for this great giveaway. If you purchase something from him please let him know that Terri at Two Pink Peas sent you. His prices are crazy good. You just cannot beat it and for less then $10.00 depending on the amount of letters that you get, you will have a beautifully made custom stamp that will last for years and years.

Thanks so much for entering and this giveaway will remain open for one or two more days and I will then draw the lucky winner. Good luck everybody!!! ~Terri

Casey's Last Minute Glow In The Dark Trumpet Project...








As kids normally come to us parents last minute needing some project for school, this is exactly what happened to me last night at around 10:30 pm.

Casey is my 12 year old son and he is in band. He plays the trumpet. For his concert he needed just a simple, simple trumpet that will glow in the dark (under black lights) for his upcoming concert. It needed to be as plain as it could be. He just needed the shape of the trumpet.

So I pulled out my trusty old Cricut and made him this in under 20 minutes. It was very fast. I took plain old poster board and used my 12 x 24 Cricut mat. I used my Gypsy and looked for a trumpet and found it in the Paper Dolls Everyday Cartridge. At least I think it was the Everyday cartridge. My memory is terrible..even from just last night..lol

His trumpet was cut out at 24 inches. First I cut it out in the yellow then decided to cut it out again in the orange. The reason I put a picture of the orange poster board on the
12 x 24 cutting mat is because I wanted to show those who have never used over sized paper or poster board that you can do it.
Just put the poster board on the mat and turn the mat over and cut off the extra. It is easy peasy!!

Then I just layered the 2 trumpets together and used adhesive to put it on the blue poster board. The last picture is of Casey holding his simple poster.

Thank goodness for my Cricut and Gypsy!! I hate last minute projects but this was so easy that I cannot complain.

Thanks for visiting Two Pink Peas! Have a wonderful day!
~Terri

Hallie's Mask That Was Displayed At Our Maple Festival...





Every single year in our little town we have a festival called the Maple Festival. We are literally famous for our maple syrup and so we have the Maple Festival. Hallie is in 4th grade and made this mask this year. She just told me that out of her whole 4th grade class, Hallie's was the only mask to be displayed at the festival. That is pretty awesome if you ask me!! I am one very proud mama!

I asked her to tell me all about this mask and what it is supposed to mean. She said that it is for the Pacific North West and she does not remember what it was for..LOL.  So I said "the pacific north west what?" She again does not remember.. lol

She did say that it is supposed to look like a monkey. To be honest...I don't know what she is talking about..LOL.
Oh kids...they can be so funny, and that is what she is being right now..lol

Anyway, I just wanted to share her work with you. I think she did an incredible job!! Way to go Hallie Bleu!!
I love you sweetie! Love, Mommy

Bella Got A Hair Cut...Look How Cute She Is...



So since winter is over and Bella has been sheading like crazy my husband Den gave her a bubble (that's what we call a bath) and a hair cut last night. She was SO fluffy and she looked like a completely different puppy.
Right now she looks so tiny, just like a little brand new puppy. You should see how she runs around and brushes herself against the carpet. She looks SO happy..it is so cute to watch. Just to remind you Bella is a Yorkie-Poo.

Anyhow, Bella loves wearing her clothes, she always has since I brought her home at 8 weeks old only weighing in at 2 pounds. The shirt that she is wearing right now is about 2 sizes too big so I need to go out and get her a new outfit. Plus, she loves wearing little bows in her hair but Den cut off the hair off of the top of her head...so she can't wear a bow for awhile. Before I took these pictures, which was just a few minutes ago, I pulled out a bow and she went literally NUTS. She wanted it in her hair. I don't know how many of you have dogs, cats or other animals but my baby Bella is everything to me. She is not just a dog, she is my little girl. I have never felt this way about any animal before I got her. I'm sure that those of you who have animals can understand how I feel.

Hallie just came to me and brought me a piece of artwork that she made at school that got displayed at our Maple Festival. I will explain more when I post it in just a few minutes. ~Terri

I love each and every PKS sets that I have bought. They are absolutely adorable, beautiful and top of the line as far as the quality of these stamps. So, I am going to list the name, put a picture of the stamps and how much they cost so you will know.  If you do not have these and wish to order them just go to their website and type in the PK# in the search box. These stamps are for sure ones that you "need" in your collection. You can do SO many different things with them. If you google Peachy Keen Stamps and click on Images you will see how absolutely creative card makers and crafters are when they are using these stamp sets. They are worth every single penny and then some. Peachy Keen Stamps will last you forever if you take proper care of them.
