Challenge Time!

It is Challenge Time over at Scrapbook Blessings Club!  The theme is ANYTHING GOES with the Design Team showing us "Shaker Cards".  If you have never tried to make a shaker card you are missing out on some fun!  These cards are so easy to create and so fun because, well, they shake.  LOL AND, who doesn't love that?????  Head on over here to check out what the Design Team has done.

This is what I came up with:


  • Foam Core, patterned paper and card stock from my stash
  • Cricut Explore
  • Mickey and Friends Cricut Cartridge (in Design Space)
  • Accent Essentials Cricut Cartridge (in Design Space)
  • Journey Glaze
  • Extra Fine Glitter
  • Enamel Accents (white)
  • Score-Pal Tape
  • Acetate
  • Confetti from my stash

I am so glad that you stopped by.  Hopefully you will give the shaker card a try.  Be sure to join in on our challenge over here.  I would love to see what you have created.

 This challenge is sponsored by Scrapping For Less and ends on November 1, 2014.

Lets Get Hopping!

Thank you for joining us on My Cricut Craft Room's Blog Hop!
A big thanks to My Cricut Craft Room for hosting this awesome hop and including me in it.

I am so excited to share with you my Mickey's Pants Mini Album!  Not only is this project Disney related (my favorite type to do) but I got to create it using my brand new Cricut Explore.  I had the BEST time playing with my new toy.  I must admit that I was unsure of whether or not to use my tried and true Cricut Expression to make this project and save the Explore for another day.  Though I have had the Explore for several weeks I had not had a chance to try it out.  Well, after much thought and many You Tube videos later I decided to go for it.......use the Explore.  Boy, am I glad that I did.  It was so much fun to use Design Space and the Explore cut like no other machine I have ever had.  I was very pleased with my end result.

My album closed (front cover).

My album opened. The inside and outside of the back cover are both finished like this.


Card stock from Close To My Heart
Chipboard from my stash
Ribbon from my stash
Tombo Mono Multi Liquid Glue
ColorBox warm red chalk ink
Mickey and Friends Cricut Cartridge used in Design Space
Brand new Cricut Explore! Woo-Hoo!!
To cut out this album I set the height setting to 5 inches in Design Space. 

I started with card stock and chipboard and ended up with Mickey's Pants Album.  The front and back covers are card stock layered onto the chipboard for strength.  The inside pages are card stock. I decided to leave all the inside pages blank.  I am unsure if this will be an autograph book, mini photo album or a Disney trip journal. Down the road I may add stickers, die cuts or photo mats to it.  The possibilities are endless.

 The next stop on the hop is: Craft Lovers Come Here.

Challenge Time!

It is challenge time over at Scrapbook Blessings Club. It is anything goes with the Design Team spotlighting an "upright diamond fold".  Kenny K is our awesome sponsor for this challenge.  To see what the Design Team created and also to see a video showing you how to do this fold head on over here.  For my card I used the Kenny K image "Santa Cookies".


  • All card stock is from my stash
  • Stickles
  • Twine
  • Charm
Once again, I left space to add a sentiment or a hand written note.  When I send this card I may also add a piece of solid card stock to the inside to write my note on.  When I am not sure who I will give a card to I really like to leave some of it unfinished. That way when the time comes to send it I can personalize it for the recipient.

Thank you so much for stopping by.  I hope that you will join the challenge over at Scrapbook Blessings Club. We just turned one year old and the blog has a beautiful new look. Have a magical day!!!!

Happy Birthday!

Happy First Birthday to Scrapbook Blessings Club!  I am so happy to be a part of this wonderful group.  To celebrate this special occasion there is a party going on right now.  Head on over here or here to join in on the fun.  There are games to play and prizes to be won.  Pull up a chair and come celebrate with us.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope that you are enjoying the beginning of October.  For us here in the desert that means cooler temperatures are coming.  Have a magical day!!
