Project Thirty-Two

So I have got my mojo back and I thinks it's running away with me!

OK so for today's project, I have made a layout.
Many of you know my husband and I are adopting two beautiful girls. So I am starting their life books.
I have chosen themes for their rooms and have kept the themes for their life books.
One child is Tinkerbell while the other and younger one is Disney Princess.
So the pages I am creating first are the first page in their life books.

I am doing the Tinkerbell page today ... can you guess what my next project will be LOL
OK so I did a Tinkerbell Layout.
I have left room for 2 photos. The first photo is for the photo I got when I first was chosen to be their mom. The second photo is the first family snap shot we took this weekend.

So here is the first page
This is a close up of the tiny mushroom and Tinkerbell

This is a close up of the word Believe!
Which means so so much to us...

OK so here is the recipe

Background Paper: EK Success Pixie Dust
Picture Frames: Stampin Up So Saffron cut at 4.75 x 4.75 inches
then I added some ribbon I think this is from Target

Tree Info
Cartridge: Tinkerbell and Friends
Page 68
all cut at 8 inches
Shadow in Stampin up Basic Black
Tree is Stampin Up Chocolate Chip
The leaves are Stampin Up Green Galore

Mushroom Info
Cartridge: Tinkerbell and Friends
Page 69
cut at 2.25 inches
Shadow in Black
Main Image in Chocolate Chip
Flesh layer is Stampin Up Crumb Cake
Flesh layer with shift is Stampin Up Real Red
OK so here was my fun part
I tried to cut the tiny flowers to go at the base but at this size it was not working
If anyone knows the proper settings to cut at this tiny size please SHARE THEM!!!
So what I did do was use Aqua Glue and some blue Flocking powder to make little blue flowers
Then I used Stampin up Bright Brads to be the centers

Word Believe
cartridge: Tinkerbell and Friends
page 29
Filigree layer
cut at 2.25
Once cut I placed the image face down
in my 5 inch Xyron Sticker maker
then I sprinkled LaJolle Ice Crystals Glitter all of the top

she is from Sandy Lion
a group of stickers I have.
I wanted to use my cricut but sometimes cutting at this tiny size is not easy
with the tiny cuts.


  1. How very sweet to make life books for each of your daughters. I'm sure they will love and appreciate them. Your girls are very lucky to have such a crafty new mommy. Congratulations on the adoption! I'm very excited for you.

    P.S. Since one room will be a princess room, I have a great Disney princess poster you can have. My daughter had it in her room and she just outgrew it. It's pink with a castle and all the Disney princesses are on the poster. It's in excellent condition. If you want it, it's yours. I hate to throw it out, but maybe I'm meant to pass it onto you. Just shoot me an email. Thanks, Beckie! coupondenise at live dot com
