Mickey and Friends Blog Hop - Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of the Mickey and Friends Blog Hop!  If you are visiting the blogs in order, you should have come from Indira's blog.  If you just came across my blog and want to start at the beginning, please start at Lisa's blog.

This is a 2 day hop so you will have plenty of time to make it through the line up twice.  Please visit the blogs both days to see great projects.  Now on to my project:

Magical Layout

Today I created this layout using the Tinker Bell and Friends cartridge to scrapbook some more of my pictures from our trip to Disneyland.
Both the title "Magical" and the butterfly on the first page were cut at 3.5 inches.
On the second page of the layout, I cut Tinker Bell out at 5.5 inches and the flowers at 5.0 inches.
Even at 5.5 inches, I still had a lot of trouble with the facial features of Tinker Bell, I ended up using Stickles for the facial features.
I used lots of Stickles and Studio G glitter glue to this layout to have it live up to its name and make it "magical".
The photo mats were cut from a paper that was already embossed.  I added a little more bling to this photo mat.
I used my white gel pen to add some extra details to the die cuts.

Blog Candy

Mickey and Friends Blog Hop - Day 1

Welcome to Day 1 of the Mickey and Friends Blog Hop!  If you are visiting the blogs in order, you should have come from Indira's blog.  If you just came across my blog and want to start at the beginning, please start at Lisa's blog.

We're so excited to be doing this hop and we have a fabulous line up with some very talented ladies. There will be lots of fun projects, along with some great blog candy, and a great grand prize for this hop.

This is a 2 day hop so you will have plenty of time to make it through the line up twice.  Please come back both days to see great projects.  Now on to my project:

Disneyland Memories Layout

Last year my family and I took a trip to Disneyland and I have been slowly working to scrapbook all of my pictures.  I created this layout using the Pooh and Friends and the Pooh Font Cartridges.
I found this fun Tigger paper in my stash of paper so all I had to do was to add Tigger's friends and a title and I had a complete layout.
Eeyore, Piglet and Pooh were all cut from the Pooh and Friends cartridge at 3.5 inches.
The "Disneyland Memories" title was cut from the Pooh Font cartridge at 2.0 inches.  I embossed the title with the Darice "Swirl" embossing folder.
The characters were very easy to layer with this cartridge.  I have found that the Pooh and Friends cartridge is one of the easiest cartridges to layer when compared to the other Disney cartridges.
I used my white gel pen to add some faux stitching around the photo mats and to add some extra details to the characters.

Happy Birthday to You Card

It is my friend's daughter's 5th Birthday party next weekend so I made this card using the Once Upon A Princess and Elegant Edges cartridges.  I used the sketch from Crafty Sprouts sketch challenge.
The princess and the crown were both cut from the Once upon a Princess cartridge.  The mat behind the princess and the sentiment mat were both cut from Elegant Edges.  I used the Princess Peachy Keen face stamp for the princess and a dollar stamp from Michaels for the sentiment.  I also used a Martha Stewart punch, my white gel pen and some bling on my card.  The cuts were pop dotted on foam.

Celebrate Layout

This fun layout was created to scrapbook some pictures from my son's 13th birthday. I used the Birthday Bash cartridge for this layout.
The cuts on this cartridge are so cute and very easy to layer.

I once again used my white gel pen to add extra details to my layout.
Since this layout was for my son, I had to refrain from adding any bling or stickles to my layout.

Butterfly Card

Here is another simple card that I made using the Florals Embellished cartridge.
The butterfly was cut at 3.0 inches and centered on a standard A2 card.  I used the Darice Scrolls embossing folder to emboss the card.
The butterfly was popped up on foam dots for added dimension.  I finished the butterfly off with some stickles and some bling.

Disneyland Layout

Today I am returning as a Guest Designer for Crazy About Cricut and it is Mickey and Friends Monday.  I have created a two page layout using the Pooh and Friends and Pooh Font cartridges.  This fun layout was inspired by Laurens Creative, you can check out Lauren's original design here.
All of the cuts are from the Pooh and Friends cartridge other than the title which is cut from the Pooh Font cartridge.  The sizes for my layout are listed below.
I found the Pooh cartridges a lot easier to piece to together than the Mickey cartridges.  If you are a beginner Cricut user, I would recommend starting with the Pooh cartridges then working up to the Mickey cartridges and then finally to the Disney Princess cartridges.
I love the bright and cheery look of this layout.  I had a lot of fun putting it together and am very pleased with the way it turned out.
The wooden font on the Pooh Font cartridge is so adorable.  
I used my white gel pen to add extra details to the characters and to all of the other die cuts.

Here is the recipe for my layout:

Pooh - 4.0 from Pooh and Friends
Eyeore - 4.56 from Pooh and Friends
Piglet - 3.75 from Pooh and Friends
Tigger - 3.25 from Pooh and Friends
Log - 3.0 from Pooh and Friends
Grass - 2.0 from Pooh and Friends
Flowers - 2.25 from Pooh and Friends
Dragonflies - 2.0 from Pooh and Friends
Butterflies - 2.0 from Pooh and Friends
Title - 1.70 from Pooh Font

Bird Card

Today I am sharing a simple card that I made using the Florals Embellished cartridge.
The bird was cut at 2.5 inches and centered on a standard A2 card.  I used the Scrollwork Cuttlebug embossing folder to emboss the card.
The bird was popped up on foam dots for added dimension.  Lastly, I added some bling for the eye.

Fur - Babies Friday

Today I am a guest designer for The Scrapbooking Queen's Fur Baby, Princess Penelope and it is Fur - Babies Friday.  I created this two page 12x12 layout using A Child's Year cartridge.
I recently made this layout to scrapbook some pictures of my kids playing with our friend's dog, Olive. Olive is the neighborhood dog that my kids have played with for years.  They love throwing the ball to Olive for her to fetch.
The title was cut at 3.5 inches and I cut it out twice in different colors.  I offset the layers in order to create a shadow effect.  The two dogs are cut at 4.0 inches and in order to create a shadow I cut the bottom layer at 4.20 inches and again offset the layers.
The boy playing with the dog was cut at 6.0 inches. This cut had its own shadow so there was no need to try to create my own.
The bones were cut at 2.0 inches and inked on the edges.  I also used a white gel pen to add some extra details to the layout.
I still need to print my pictures to add to this layout so I don't have a picture of Olive and the kids playing to share with you.
Thank you Princess Penelope and The Scrapbooking Queen for having me as a guest designer.
