Project Sixty-eight

Happy Friday!

Hope you start to the weekend is just as fun as mine was. My family is finally better and we went to the Magic Kingdom with friends. It was cold and rainy and it was perfect.

For today's project I was playing with reverse stenciling the words. Not sure if I love it or I could leave it. We are still working on Valentine's Day around here. Many cards to make for our Home School Valentine's Party.

So I used Winnie the Pooh and Friends. This is the honey pot icon. I welded the two images to make the base of the card, Stampin Up Melon Mambo.

I have been playing with the Cricut Craft Room and I am loving it. My old eyes love the big screen.

I them cut the shadow using the same Valentine's pack I have been using Michael's Recollection. I then used. Stampin Up Chocolate Chip, Green Wasabi and Daffodil Yellow.

I wanted some sparkle so I used Stickles to give it a splash!

Thanks for stopping by
Have a Magical Day!

Project Sixty-seven

Happy Wednesday!

I am so excited because I finally joined Peachy Keens Stamp of the Month Club
and my first month stamps arrived the other day. Of course they arrived the day I had an eye exam
and they dilated my eyes and I could not play with them.

So I finally got to play the next day. I have my fingers crossed that I am going to be
able to take the Copics basic workshop that is coming to my area this coming February.
I do need help with my coloring!

This cute little teapot is from the January stamp of the month along with the cute little saying.
So the card is Stampin Up Rich Razzleberry
the next one was a textured white from Basics
The pattern paper is from DCVW
the next was Stampin Up Whisper White I embossed with Cuttlebug not sure the name but it says cuttlebug on it.
The brads are also Stampin Up
The ribbon was a scrap piece I had laying around.
I used Copic Markers to color the teapot and flowers.

Project Sixty-six

Happy Monday!

So Valentine's Day is fast approaching and my girls are in the heart mood.
SO this past two weeks Art project for my girls. Don't forget we homeschool. So towards the holidays we switch from serious art to more holiday craft projects.

Since my whole family loves Disney, my go to site for Disney crafts is
Disney Family here is the URL to the Valentine's Day projects.
Disney Valentine's Day Projects

So the projects the girls made was the Pixie Hollow Tree
The Fairies over at Pixie Hollow have transformed the Main Tree
to be a Love Tree

SO the project has a template that the girls traced onto  Stampin Up Chocolate Chip card stock
The cut out a heart to be a secret message area.
The project has the kids cutting hearts out using a punch, which mom could not find for the life of me. So I cut out hearts using the heart from Plantin schoolbook at 1 inch and at .5 inch. I just used any cut Valentine scraps I could find. They girls did the rest.
Most of you know I adopted two girls a almost 2 years ago. We are in the process if adopting their older sister, I had to share her secret message.

It says "Having a family is the best thing ever I love you"

Have a magical day!

Project Sixty-five

Welcome to My Mouse Dreams!

So I have to ask who is in love with the New Cricut Explore!!

I think I might be! I have been doing the dance lately about getting a Cameo
this year, but I have always been a huge Cricut Lover. I think this might be the answer to my ideas!

The other new thing I can not wait to play with is I finally joined Peachy Keens Stamp Club. I have always loved their stamps, but I have never been that confident in my coloring abilities. I am hoping to be taking a Copics class soon.

OK so on to todays project. We are getting ready for Valentine's Day around here. The kids will be attending a home school party so we have lots of cards to make. Our home school group is actually Disney based, so yeah more fun.

So I finally broke down and played with the Cricut Craft Room and I LOVED IT!
So I made this card using the stamp image from Create a Critter.
I unlocked the size button and made the base 5.5 x 4.25 and then copy and welded the same image to be the base of the card. The paper is Melon Mambo from Stampin Up.
I then cut the next layer at 5 x 3.75 and the paper is from Michael's Recollection 6x6 Valentine's Pack.
The little stamps are the same image from the base the stamp unlocked and made to be 1 inch squares. I then took Stampin Up Chocolate Chip ink and brushed the edges of the stamps. The paper is from the same paper pack from Michael's.
The letters and Mickey icon are from Mickey Font and are cut with the sized locked at .5 of an inch.
The paper is Stampin Up Chocolate Chip.

Project 64

Well this was not what I had planned but it still turned out really cute!

So we had planned on the Mickey Icons with hearts to be little tags. Mommy made them a tad to big.
So we improvised and just used them as cupcake toppers.
This is the beginning of our homeschooling cooking Valentines gifts for friends and family.
We started out with Red Swirly cupcake holders. My girls made chocolate cupcakes and they
frosted them with vanilla frosting.

They helped Mom cut out
24 2 inch Mickey Icons out of silver DCWV paper stack.
24 1.5 hearts from Plantin Schoolbook and they picked paper from Michael's Recollections 6x6 Valentine stack.

They punched little holes in one ear of Mickey because we were going to use Red embossing thread to try the tags around the cupcakes. We made our tags to big.

You can either make the tags smaller to make them tags to try on, just stick them icons in the frosting or tape or glue icon to toothpick so you just put the end of the toothpick in the frosting.

Have A Magical Day!

Project Sixty-three

Welcome Back!

  So most of you know I home school my three kids. Yes, I said three! That's why my life has become CRAZY! My husband and I adopted two girls who are now 10 and 12. When we got custody of them they were 7 and 9. Well they had an older sister, who we were not allowed to adopt at the time. Fast forward three years and we got custody of her this past November. So we became instant parents of a teenager. Yes, she is 14, God help me stay focused. So the girls are now all together, which has been over 7 years since they have lived together. So we have great days and not so great days.

  So on to what we did the other day. I got an email so forgive me I do not know of the site who made star wands, but they gave me the idea. Three kids on the last few days of "our" Advent and Christmas holiday. SO we made wands all of us. They each picked an icon, and yeah there were all off a Disney Cartridge! So here is the picture.

So My Youngest picked the Tiara off Disney Happily Ever After
My middle Daughter who loves Tinker Bell choose the icon of her head
My Oldest who is in love with the new movie Frozen picked the Snowflake from the Winnie the Pooh and friends cartridges.
I of course picked my favorite icon of Mickey Font.

I used my gypsy but you don't have too. All images were cut at 4 inches.
I cut 1 regular image then I cut the same image just mirror it. That when they are placed together the pieces line up. Yes, I forgot this when making the Tinker Bell.  

Once Cut I let the girls go through my scrap ribbons and scrap accessories to decorate. I had them glue the ribbons to the back side. Then for the wand part I used wooden skewers I had in the kitchen. Once we placed the ribbons and skewer in the right spot we glues on the back.

Then they decorated the front.
I encourage them to take their time. It took about 25 minutes to decorate.
Then hours of play time in their rooms.  

PS If you are the one who gave me this awesome idea from your blog ... PLEASE email me
and I will give you complete credit!!
