Happy New Year!

Hello Disney and Crafty Friends! Where has the time gone? My last post was in August! Wow is really all I can say! A lot has been going on in my little corner of the world. In September I had the best time attempting to run my first Disneyland 5K.  It was so much fun that shortly thereafter I joined a running group to learn how to really run!  The goal set was to be able to run a 5K without taking any walk breaks. I am happy to report that I am "running" in the right direction with this goal.

Running (and walking) the 5K in Disneyland was such an amazing experience. I have been to the Park many, many times but I had never seen it from this perspective. If you have never done a race at Disneyland I encourage you to give it a try. 



Crafting kind of took a back seat in my life this fall.  Unfortunately, a very special lady in my life, my Grandma, passed away at the age of 93.  She was amazing! If only everyone could be so lucky to have been blessed with such a fabulous Grandmother. She had unwavering faith in God and lived independently until she passed away.  She is greatly missed by all of us.


Though I did not craft much I did make one pop-up box card. If you have read my earlier posts you know that I LOVE this die set from Stamps of Life.  (The set does not include the Mickey dies.)



That is the latest here. I hope that you had a wonderful holiday season and a great start to 2017! Here's to a year filled with Disney magic and lots of crafting!! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a magical day!

Hello My Friend!

Hello Disney and Crafty Friends!  I have been very busy lately crafting!  It feels great to finally have some time to be making cards.  I have made two different cards using one of my favorite dies from Stamps of Life.  Here is the first one:




Here is the second one.  I used the same die but embellished it differently.




The die sets from Stamps of Life make it so easy to make cards!  If you do not have one of Stephanie Barnard's die sets what are you waiting for?? LOL!

I hope that you have a fabulous weekend doing something that you love!! Thanks for stopping by and have a magical day!!

Pop-Up Box Card Fun!

Hello Disney and Crafty Friends!  I had so much fun making this pop-up box card that I had to share it with you!

Here it is closed

 "Popped-Up"
                                

 The details


 



Card Recipe: 

Box Card Die set from Stamps of Life.  Go here to check it out.
Cricut Cartridge (either Mickey and Friends or Mickey Font.....can't remember)
Embossing folder
Cardstock from my stash

I absolutely LOVE all the dies from Stamps of Life.  If you have never heard of Stephanie Barnard you are missing out.  Her products are awesome. I had so much fun making this card! In case you are wondering where you would write your greeting there is plenty of room on the back of the "box" to write whatever you would like.  You could even stamp a greeting on the back if you wanted to.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope that you have a magical day doing something that you love!

Scrap Camp 2016

Hello Disney and Crafty Friends!  I hope that you are having a fun filled summer!  Mine has been filled with fun and is flying by!  I have been busy making priceless memories with friends and family.

Every June brings Scrap Camp.  What is Scrap Camp you ask?  It is a weekend set aside to spend with friends escaping the grind of everyday life.  We spend it laughing, eating, field tripping to nearby stores, visiting and oh, yes, we even craft a little.  Each year brings a different theme.  This year we celebrated Red, White and Blue!

The decorations are amazing!  They are done by one crafty, fellow Disney Chick.....my dear friend Candy!



This was my spot for the weekend.  


Here we are....dressed in the theme of the weekend AND sporting some very special eyewear!



That's it for now!  At Scrap Camp I started working on my Disney Cruise album.  So fun to scrap and relive the memories of the trip while I scrap!  I hope that you have a magical day!  Thanks so much for stopping by.
