Tuesday Video Tutorial – How to Emboss Resist with Stampin’ Up! – Episode 406

By Robyn Cardon - September 8, 2015 - 12 Comments

Hello Tuesday Everyone!


I hope you have had a great week so far.  It still seems like Monday to me because of the holiday yesterday!  Did you all make it a wonderful weekend?  We had a BBQ up in the canyon yesterday with my husband’s side of the family.  We even were able to snap a quick family shot.


(Gotta love my sweet Brayden.  We haven’t been able to get a regular smile out of him in years for a picture.)

Isn’t this a fun picture of my daughter with one of my great nieces?  We really feel blessed that we finally live by family.  We have missed so much!

I’m so excited to share today’s video tutorial with you guys.  I absolutely LOVE this technique and haven’t used it in YEARS!  It’s super simple and I promise that anyone can do it!

Daily Chicken Update!
I thought I would add this on for those of you who are interested.  (Today’s blog post is taking me FOREVER!)  I posted a funny little video that my husband and daughter made about my chicken obsession.  This was at our family BBQ yesterday.  They were supposed to tell a story about our family that had to do with the nature scavenger hunt we just went on.  I didn’t know it was going to be about my chickens.  How funny they think they are!  

But first…. how about some chicken pics!

Check out this perfect egg I got today!  8 eggs already today out of 9 chickens who are laying!



Say hi to Lola!  She is a bantam chicken who is ready to start laying itty bitty eggs soon!  We don’t know what breed she is.



Meet one of my favorite little girls named Olive.  She just likes me to hold her right now.  She is about to start laying soon and she is really clingy with me.  If I go in their coop to change water or anything, she lightly pecks on the back of my leg to remind me to pay attention to her.  She is so funny!!



This is Pepper!  She is our only chicken who lays light green eggs.  She was the last to lay out of the 9 and I think I freaked out the most with her!



We are having a new run built right now that will fit ALL my chickens, with room for more!  They will be able to run and play and be happy chickens all day long!



Here is the roof that will be attached to the covered run.  They will have a safe, dry place to hang out when we start to get snow.  They are going to love it!


Episode 407 – Madie & Daddy telling the chicken story

Thanks for staying with me through this LONG post!  I hope to see you back tomorrow! 

Love you!

Happy Monday Everyone!


PHEW!  It’s been quite a busy weekend over here at the Cardon home.  My sweet little sister, Amber, and her husband have been staying with us and it’s been awesome!  I’ve never spent so much time with my sister and it has been much needed.  We’ve talked a lot, done our nails a lot, and ate a lot!  LOL!

A little about my chickens!  

I have been asked to post more about my backyard chickens!  You asked, here you go…

We have 9 chickens that are now laying eggs…..  Gigi, Chloe, Emma, Pepper, Kendrick, Bella, Ella, Heather, & Butterscotch!

We are having a special run made for them right now so pretty soon they will have a TON of room to run around and be crazy chickens!  I am so excited for them!  

This is Gigi!  She loves me and sits on my lap when I am outside.  She is a Rhode Island Red and they are known to be a little grumpy but she is the sweetest.  At least to me.  🙂

We also have another 2 groups of chickens.  4 will be laying in the next few weeks.  Princess, Olive, Lola, and Po!  We have 8 more who will not be laying eggs until November or early Spring.  We are going to have A LOT of eggs!  We have family & friends who are loving our farm fresh eggs.  Plus, it is so awesome going to the store and never having to buy any!  

I thought I would throw in a family picture for you guys.  I am so thankful to live in Utah and be close to both sides of our family.  My kids are happy here and I am slowly getting used to it.  Lol!  I love it here but for some reason I haven’t really made any close friends.  It’s only been a year, I know, but I am ready for some crafty friends now!  Good thing people have been flying out to visit me or I would go stir crazy!

This past week has been VERY BUSY in My Pink Loft!  My Haunt Ya Later Class sold out and I had a ton of project packets to cut and prepare along with little gifts that I made for my class participants. I am so happy to say that everyone’s classes are in the mail!  My next class will be posted soon.  I need to catch my breath first!  

I forgot to post these super cute notebook sets!  I will have to make a video for you guys showing how I made them.  These were quick & easy and didn’t take any time at all!  

This weekend has also been busy setting up my new Jamberry business!  I never realized how much fun I would have decorating my nails and teaching others how to do it, too!  I have started a Jamberry blog if you would like to check it out.  Click HERE to see what you think!  I am still sending out free samples.  Just let me know if you would like one at mypinkstamper@gmail.com.


Okay!  We are back to our regular weekly schedule!  I will have a new video tutorial up for you tomorrow.  I am going to slip 1-2 days a week with Jamberry but I will make sure that I also do 4-5 days of Stampin’ Up!  I promise to fill all your crafting and nail needs!  hee hee!
