Hello and thanks for stopping in. The whole family had the flu last week. Which is why I was missing in action. Thanks to rest and God we are all feeling better.

We are going up next weekend to look for a place to live. YES that is right I am going to be living 30 minutes or so from WALT DISNEY WORLD!!! I am so happy. The rest of my family is even more happy. It seems I take all my vacations to Disney. With Disney so close I might go a on a real vacation and visit some of my family. The funny thing my husband and I both made the comment when someone mentioned a "real" vacation, we thought ohhh Disneyland or plan for Disneyland Paris. Can you tell we love DISNEY!

Project Forty-seven Pooh Bear

Hello!! I am getting back into the groove. So If you are only here for the project jump to just under the picture.

So here is what has been going on. CRAZINESS!! OK sorry had to say it. I have been getting back into crafting tiny steps at a time, but nothing to do with Disney. Hard to believe I do craft other things besides Disney. We are settled for the most part. My poor babies of course move right before there birthdays, so we had simple parties with just family. Mackenzie had her sister, cousin and herself for a Build A Bear party. Mary had a simple dinner to Cheesecake factory and a Mani and pedi day with her sister and her mom. Loved that gift myself! I am trying to find time for crafting after all the kids are asleep. I am still looking for a scrapbook store here is South Florida. If anyone knows of any please say, missing spending hours scanning through paper.

OK on to today's project. My family is catholic, and both my children are making their First Reconciliation and First Communion this year. My daughters made First Reconciliation this past Saturday. The church had the parents make a "love box" for each child. It is just a simple box filled with letters from family and friends. Once the kids were finished with Father and said penance, they were able to open the box and read the letters. My dear friend who is older than me still has her box and letters. So I hope my children will value theirs too.

So this is Mackenzie's love box

All I did was cover a child's shoe box with paper and craft away.
The actual box is covered in
Chocolate Chip paper from Stampin Up
The Sunflower paper is Spring Yellow from Magenta- a find at my then local scrapbook store
The flowers
are all from Prima flowers that I just layered together.
The brad in the middle of the flowers are from Stampin Up
The middle part
The tag is the same tag from
Tags Bags Boxes and More
the first one
page 40
largest 2.5 inches is chocolate chip from stampin up
middle 2 inches is so saffron stampin up
top 1.5 inches is basic white stampin up
Sentiment is from EK Success

Pooh Bear
is from Pooh and Friends
cut at 3.75 inches

Thanks for looking!
Have a Magical Day!

Project Forty-six Mickey and Minnie in Love

This was a cute little card I made for my hubby for this past Valentine's day. He just loved it. I have to admit this was the second year I made his Valentine's Day card. I just noticed he kept last years card so cute.

OK so here is some personal news .... if you want to skip the personal stuff the instructions for the card are under the photo.
OK so our ADOPTION WAS FINALIZED!!! Yes we are officially the proud parents of two little girls 8 and 10. Mary Rose and Mackenzie Ann. We got the official news on February 8th, what a great Valentine's day present that was. Well then if that is not enough craziness, my family moved back to South Florida. My dad lives here alone, and things were not going good with him. So we are here for a few months before our big move to Orlando. We are hoping to be in the Orlando area some time late summer this year!!! YEAH!!! Can't wait to be down the street from Mickey!!

OK now on to the project!!

the card is a standard A4 size
The paper was real red from Stampin Up
the yellow strip was a scrap from something.
All white is Stampin Up
I first stamped the red background with hearts from Stampin Up's I (heart) Hearts set
     with Stampin Up white craft ink. I let completely dry.

Then I took a 3.5 inch square and stamped the Mickey and Minnie Image with All Night Media's stamp. I then colored in the image using basic Copic colors. My coloring skills are still in the newbie stage. Then I took Stampin Ups real red stamp ink and a sponge to lightly color the edges.

I then cut two pieces 2 X 1.5 inches and Stamped the words using some basic word set I have.
I placed a yellow piece about 1.5 inches wide and 5.5 inches long and on top of that put some sparkly black ribbon. All the mickey head crystals were bought at a local craft store.

Ops ... I made a coloring boo-boo on Minnie's bow .... so I just took the stamp and stamped the image on Stampin Up's real red paper and cut it out and placed it on my image.

Hope you like it!

Project Forty-five

Hello and Welcome Back!
For this project I just wanted to show the cute little cards we are making for my youngest Daughter's Valentine's Card! We home school but we attend a weekly Co-op and they attend faith formation. So they will be giving these out there. I love all the cute cuts on the Disney Cartridges, that are not so Disney! That's what makes them great to have,

My youngest is Eight years old, so I only get to make the first card. After that she makes them.

This is the card!

I tried to get a close up of his little face and wings. Yes I glues and glittered 22 pairs of wings LOL

OK So Here is how I made him
Since these are for my Daughter, I don't make full cards. I divide the 8.5 x 11 card stock into fours.
We put the card part on front and she stamps the back and signs her name.

Each card is 4.25 x 5.5
I started with white card stock
I took a piece of red rose Stampin Up 4 x 5.25 and Used the Divine Swirl Cuttlebug folder
Then I took a 3.75 x 5 pattern paper
I hand stitched and lines for the bee and the outer stitching.
The Be Mine was just a stamp I had.

The Bee is from the Pooh and Friends Cricut Cartridge
I cut him at 3 inches.
I then used Glossy Accents on the eye and the top of the antennas.
I then used LaJolle Icy Accents Glitter on the wings.

When I make cards for my daughter I make all the bees and cut all the paper pieces. She now gets to assemble them.

Thanks for Looking!

Project Forty-four Challenge Project

Hello and welcome back! We are working on some cute stuff around here. I am still on a wait list for a "new" look for the blog, but patience is a virtue. So I am trying.

So I was due on Thursday to do this major restock of my craft shelves. Hubby had found a bigger chunk for my shopping budget ...whooo hooo him! So I woke up Thursday so excited. We were driving into town, went to the bank had some breakfast and that's where my day went WRONG!! On the highway to go to Micheal's, my van;s radiator decided to explode. The good thing is hubby listened to me when we bought the van to pay for the extra warranty that covered the engine and such. So it wasn't as bad, we have a deductible but not the whole bill. So there went my "extra" plus a little of my budget. So instead of whinnying, which I did do on the inside. I put my big girl undies on and shopped with what I had. I GOT NEW CRICUT BLADES!! So I am in business around here.

So for today's project it is for a challenge over at My Creative Time. Emma has a Thursday challenge to use some of our older more forgotten cartridges. This was to use any cartridge but it had to have a sport theme to it. So the only person in my life who likes sports is my dad. So I made this card for him to let him know we miss him! So here we go.

So my family are huge University of Michigan fans!! So you know there is a huge Disney Sports store in Downtown Disney. Even Disney it trying to "get" those Sports fans. So I came up with Tigger playing Football for my favorite team.


Card Base
is from Paper Dolls for Everyday

Football and the Goal Post
I made the football at 23 inches with out the real size button
I then copied the football, dragged it above my first football flipped it and then welded it together to be the base of the card.
The goal post was actually cut at 4 inches
I cut the image twice. Once in silver then in Gold. I then just used the bottom part of the Gold for the goal post.

was cut at 4.5 inches
using my Gypsy I made a Football jersey from the same EDPD cartridge at 4.03 inches.
I made 2 jersey one I made blue and the other I fused a M into it to get the layered look.

The words and the M on the shirt are all from the cartridge Cutting Up cut at 1 inch.

I had to soooo stop myself from making this card PRETTY! I was going to glitter the words, hubby stopped me. He kept reminding me it was for my DAD.

Have a great day and thanks for looking!
