Got Cake

This is a quick little card I put together for a special little boy who turned 3 recently. I used some more DCWV paper from an old stack and another stamp from the Humorous Birthday set from Inkadinkadoo.
Hope you enjoy.

Disney Crystal Palace

This layout just makes me smile and remember visiting my pals at the Crystal Palace.

The paper is from Nana's Nursery stack from Joann's.

The scalloped cut was cut at 10" and on center point using the Accent Essentials cart.

Font is from the Pooh Font cart. I wish the shadow had been a little bigger to show more and I intended on putting the letters on irregularly but forgot when I glued them on. Oh well, I'm in love with the layout anyways. LOL

Hope you enjoy and I love to hear your comments so please take a momment

Disney All Star Pool

This is my family enjoying the fun at games at the pool on our last Disney trip. I did this layout for a Disney Challenge but I was too late finishing it. I still need to put my journaling block on.
The three flamingos were some eyelets I received a while back when I was doing swaps with one of my groups. I thought they were perfect for this layout. I love the way they look and they were so easy to attach with the crop a dial. I have a video showing how to use this I'll be uploading so watch for it. It was my first time using it and I couldn't believe how easy it set this type of eyelet.
Here's a close up of the title. I put crystal effects on the top of the letters to mimic water but I wasn't happy with the overall look still so I added some tiny crystal beads. It's still not the look I was going for but overall I love the layout and I have two more pages done for the Disney album. Yeah me!!
Have an awesome day! Please leave a comment. I love to hear from everyone.

Disney Swiss Family Treehouse

I just love the way this layout came together. I used lots of different products on it.

The owl is from the Happily Ever After cart. (Sorry for the blurry picture, not sure what happened.)

The circles and scalloped border are from the Accent Essential cart. I did the scallops in DS so I could size them the way I wanted.

The stamps are from two different sets. The swirls are Autumn Leaves Swirls and the swirl with the flowers came from Scrappy Cat Flights of Fancy. I love all the swirls along the left side. It added just the right finishing touch.
I used lots of Chestnut Roan chalk box ink on everything.

I think that's about it.

I hope you like and I love to hear your comments

Have a blessed day

Big Bite Crop a Dile Information Sheet and UPdate

I've had many requests for the information sheet for the Big Bite Cropadile. Unfortunately it's a folded up paper in the bottom of the package that mistakenly gets thrown away.  I hope this will help everyone get those Big Bites out and using them.

Click here for the pdf file.

I was also asked where I get my eyelets. Most I have purchased at the CKC convention from the eyelet outlet booth. They do have a website you can order from. The splats and flamingos were actually received in a swap that I hosted a few years ago. I suggest googling shaped eyelets and I'm sure you'll come up with many web stores.

Sunflower card from Stretch Your Imagination

I had a great time making this card and playing with the Stretch Your Imagination cart. This is the first time I used the card feature. It was super easy.
I cut the base from some gold cardstock and the frame from some goldish yellow cardstock. I then cut a chocolate chip cardstock to go inside of the card for the background color.
I couldn't stop there so I took the yellow cardstock and played with my cricut markers. I chose just the flower and cut it at the size of the one on the card with my markers and then pushed load last and cut it out. I attached it at an angle with pop dots. I then took some Sunburst Luster Rub-ons and rubbed it around the edges of the card and the center of the flower for a pearly effect. Then I took my dark brown marker and went over the seeds again to make them pop.
I took a little ladybug stamp I have and stamped the envelope.
I love this little card and it was really quick to do. I wish I had video taped it. I may have to make another to show the card feature and all the fun stuff you can do with it.
Hope you liked it and I'd love to hear your comments.
Have a great day

Destination Disney

This layout is my family and I leaving for our trip to WDW.
The paper is from DCWV.
I cut the airplane from the Mickey and Friends cart then I took my markers and added some American Airline decals.
I cut the center picture and mat from the Accent Essential carts. I love this cart and this particular cut. I seem to use it on a lot of layouts.
The title is done from Making Memories rub on letters. I really like all the different fonts and how it turned out.
The leaving on a jet plane embellishment came from Magic Scraps Designer Flair that I picked up from the last CK convention.
I hope you enjoy and I love to hear your comments.
Have an awesome day!

Altered Crown

I picked this wood cutout from Joann's and couldn't resist altering it up for my scraproom. I used ColorBox cat eye inks and simply rubbed it on the top of the cutout. The two little pink hearts on top and brads that I snipped the backs off of and glued on. Of course a crown wouldn't be complete without some bling so I stickled the hearts and put rhinestones along the bottom. Totally blinged out! I love it!

Together Forever Card using SU Fun & Fast Notes

Wow, I've really gotten behind on posting. I have been scrapping I just can't seem to get pictures uploaded and post made. My bad!

This is a card I made for a challenge from Robyn, the pink stamper. We were to find something we just had to have when we first started scrapping and dust it off and use it. When I first started scrapping I bought all the DCWV paper stacks I could get my hands on. I guess things really don't change. I'm still a paper addict. The other thing I went hog wild buying were brads, eyelets, and snaps. So on this card I pulled out some paper from a really old paper stack (yes, I still have them) and some snaps from my stash. I used the new stamp set I got from SU called Fun & Fast Notes. I love it! It's a great set. The threading water punch was a perfect touch to the side of the card.
I hope you enjoy and please leave a comment. I love to hear from everyone.
Have an awesome day!
