Think Pink (Guest Designing for Die Cuttin Divas)

Hi, Crafters! I am honored to be a Guest Designer today for Die Cuttin' Divas! Woo-Hoo!


The challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas is "Think Pink - Breast Cancer Awareness."

I decided to make a Breast Cancer Awareness Shadow Box with inspiring tags hanging from it. Love those tags!

I used just about every sentiment in Craftn Desert Divas - Be Inspired stamp set.


You can buy this stamp set HERE.

  • Silhouette ID# 61240 (Breast Cancer Awareness Shadow Box)
  • Tutorial for shadow box assembly can be found HERE
  • Silhouette ID# 40402 (7 different style tags / labels)
  • Lace from stash
  • Foam squares for dimension of layers
  • Craftin Desert Divas - BE INSPIRED stamp set for all sentiments on various tags

I thought this project was going to be complicated and confusing to cut and assemble, but it wasn't. You just layer the box cuts and easy peasy.

I've had friends lose their lives (too young) to Breast Cancer. So please, ladies, get the girls checked every year by a doctor and / or Mammogram, and be diligent about your self exams each month. Don't hesitate to call the doctor even if you think it's probably nothing. Better to know for sure than worry about it or let it go and find out later it was something that could have been getting treatment.

Would you like more information about self exams? Check out the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. for tons of valuable information on early detection, breast cancer types, breast cancer treatment and more.
