My Day At Exploring Cricut!

Hi All!!

Today is my design day over at Exploring Cricut!!!

For today's project, I am sharing an order that I had from one of my blog readers! She had emailed me and asked her if I could help her make some decorations for her daughters 1st birthday! It is a Minnie Mouse themed birthday!!! Of COARSE I said yes!!!

I used Mickey and Friends and Mickey Font for all her goodies!!!

I made a Happy Birthday Banner and some icons for centerpieces that she is making!

I haven't played too much with these cartridges, so it was A LOT of fun!!!

Here is what I made:

This is the banner. I made the Minnie Ears at 4.5 inches and I cut her bow at 1.75 inches. The letters were cut from Mickey Font at 1.5 inches,

Here are the Minnie icons for the centerpieces that she is making. I didn't have any pink with white polka dot paper that she requested, so I improvised with a white gel pen! They were cut from Mickey and Friends all at 5 inches.

Some more icons. Minnie Mouse Hearts both cut at 5.5 inches!
So, that's my project! I hope you all like it!! Make sure you check out the Exploring Cricut challenge this week!
OK all, hope to catch you Craftin' and Stampin'!

Paper Bag Mini Album-Baby's First Year theme!


Hey All!!

I feel like it has been FOREVER since I have been able to get on here to post! I have been so utterly busy and of coarse I just have to take on more responsibilities since apparently I'm just not happy unless I am beyond stressed out! I need to learn just how to say NO! And guess what, I told myself NO and put EVERYTHING that needed to be done (aside from clothes and house cleaning) and I got my nephews mini album kicked out!

So, if you remember from my post from Exploring Cricut last week, I made the little baby boy and First Tooth saying. Well, those items went into my project that I am going to show you today!!!

I am  part of a group on Face book called PLAY ALONG. In the group, we got a video on how to make a Paper Bag Mini Album. From the album itself, to the binding, to the fold out pages, we made it ALL ourselves!! Ginger (My Sister's Scrapper) had 6 videos on how to make this album, so I followed the videos, and I now have one album done for my nephew Jason!

Here are my pics:

My Day at Exploring Cricut

Hey All!!

Its my design day over at Exploring Cricut!!!

Quick stop in here after my SUPER busy week to show you some items I am working on for my Nephew's Mini Album!

He will be turning 1 in June so I need to get started now!!! I have a few cartridges linked to my Gyspy so I pulled it out to check and see what I wanted to work on first!

The milestone I decided to do first was: FIRST TOOTH!

Here is what the icons look like. I found them on the Baby Steps cartridge!

Didnt they turn out super cute??? I inked everything up and used pop dots for dimensions! I also took a white gel pen and do some faux stitching to the words first tooth!

Well, I am off to be now all!!! Hope to catch you Craftin' and Stampin'!
