{disney} preparations

Hi crafters,

We had my niece's birthday party today.  She and her cousins are headed to Disney in a few months, this made crafty gift giving quite easy.

I made this count down with my bind it all.  The numbers are the cricut craft room font and the letters are from Lyrical Letters.

 I cut the white cardstock at around 2 inches and covered the chipboard with red paper.

 I got matching shirts and used freezer paper to make the Micky heads.  I didn't have the Disney cartridge with it so I just used the head from a cart I didn't have and grabbed three circles and sized/welded them over top of it before deleting the original.

I created these autograph books for them to take to the park.  I covered chipboard with paper and used white computer paper inside for the pages.

The crowns are from Paper Doll Dress Up.  The Micky head was created using the same method as above.

I used fun paper inside the covers and did the reverse for the back covers.

Happy Crafting,

{Cupid's Tushie} Happy Valentine's Day!

Hi crafters,

I created a few Valentine's day cards last weekend.  I recently discovered this adorable cupid on the Sweetheart's cartridge (you may remember him from my door decor)

 I ran the background through the cuttlebug with the swiss dots folder.  I used the cricut markers to outline Mr. Cupid.
I stamped the sentiment and added some washi tape and bakers twine to the sentiment piece.

I hope love is in your air! 
Happy crafting,

Personalized {art} Kit

Hi Crafters,

My niece is also a budding crafter.  She loves to paint at school and create with me in the craft loft.  My husband and I got her an easel and art set for Christmas this year.

The front had an awful yellow sticker on it showing what came in the kit.  It of course did not come of easily so I took some fun contact paper and covered the entire front.  I then cut out a monogram with Opposites Attract. I layered the butterfly (from create a critter) on top with 3 colors of vinyl.  I think it turned out perfect! It looks a lot better than it did when I got it.

Thanks for stopping by...
